This Summer

I mentioned in one of my videos I'll be busy for part of this summer. I finish finals for this semester on May 5, then have about 3 free weeks when I'll be filming and uploading as many videos as possible. May 28-June 27, I'll be in Strasbourg, France studying abroad. I'll be taking 3 classes there so will have that workload, and since the school only allows us to take one checked bag, I'll be packing only the makeup bare necessities. I'll try to film as many videos as I can before then so I can upload some in France. I plan on creating a separate youtube account where I upload trip videos, but they won't be makeup related. 

Furthermore, I won't be doing much hauling this summer because as of now I'll have 1-2 unpaid internships and may not be getting a paid job until the fall. As much as I love the opportunities these internships present, I'll be tight on cash and won't be hauling as much as I did last summer when I was working. I'll try to create fresh summer looks for you guys with products I already have or with the few products I buy. As always, I appreciate your support. Hope you guys have fun summers planned too!

DIY Beauty: Highlights for Blondes

Lemon juice works well as a natural hightlighter for blondes. Just apply lemon juice to hair with a wide toothed comb and lay out in the sun for about an hour. You may have to repeat the process a few times before seeing a difference, but it does work.  Enjoy your naturally lighter hair!

Just  a few warnings: This will not work on people with darker hair (sorry, brunettes), over-using lemon juice on hair can leave it dry and brittle, so be sure to use a good conditioner after rinsing the lemon juice out. Also avoid applying lemon juice to hair that is chemically treated or has been exposed to chlorine.
