Crystals have been gaining popularity lately as they are able to help with anything from love to money or can even help deepen meditation and connect you to your chakras. If you are a crystal newbie, I recommend reading over A Beginner’s Guide to Healing Crystals to learn a little bit more about how they work.
If you’re looking for a super affordable beginner’s crystal kit, I highly recommend my friend Annabelle’s which you can get on her website Adderall and Compliments. She’s also had some crystal experts on her podcast that go super in depth about what crystals are for and how to use them.
Since we’re all using our rock babies to help manifest our destinies, it only makes sense that they’ve made their way to our nails seeing as they are naturally beautiful.
Rose Quartz Nails
I am OBSESSED with Abigail’s (@onehauteblonde) stunning Rose Quartz Nails. These beautiful babies inspired this post! Abigail said her nail artist used a gel polish and hand painted the design on top. Rose Quartz is the Crystal of Unconditional Love (for yourself and others!) It helps dissolve emotional wounds, fears and resentments, and helps open the heart to truly give and receive love from others aka it’s a single girl’s BFF.

I’ve been a huge fan of Southern Charm since the very first season and Cameran consistently has absolutely amazing hair and makeup that are natural and effortless, yet incredible all at the same time. Since a lot of people have questions about her age- Cameran Eubanks aka Cameran Wimberly’s birthday is 11/21/83 making her currently 33 years old. One of Cameran’s biggest beauty secrets and the reason why she always looks so flawless- she used to be a makeup artist! (Source)

If you have dark circles and discoloration around your eyes, you’re going to want to read this. Here’s my secret to using concealer to cover up dark under eyes:
- Depuff: I used my Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches ($22 for 4 pairs) that had been in the refrigerator to help reduce any puffiness. You can also go old school and use cold spoons! One of my new faves Mallory Ervin recommended these Tarte patches. You may also remember that Lady Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives of New York dips her whole face in an ice bath to help with puffiness!

Sonja Morgan of Real Housewives of New York City has really nailed the “I’m not wearing that much makeup yet I look incredibly polished and chic at the same time” look.

If you saw my Sonja Morgan’s Beauty Secrets – Skincare, Botox, Facials, and More post you know that Sonja takes amazing care of her skin and eats very healthy, but what is she putting on her face and body that is making her look so flawless? I still can’t believe Queen Sonja Morgan herself reposted my last blog on her Facebook, I mean is this real life!?!?
