Zion National Park

Four of the Best US National Parks

I recently got back from Banff and it made me really want to check out some US National Parks. Today we have a guest post in collaboration with 1Cover Travel Insurance that’s going to break down the 4 best national parks- which seems like a great place for me to start my research!

Who doesn’t love a National Park? They are places of such natural beauty, and a prime location for adventure. From hiking to snorkelling, star gazing to relaxing in the natural hot springs, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Just remember to check which activities are covered by your insurance provider before setting off because some of them have a high-risk factor.

Why Cruelty-Free Products Not Only Benefit Our Beloved Animals

Today we have an awesome collaboration guest post all about Cruelty Free beauty products! If you want to read more about cruelty free makeup and beauty products be sure to check out my post on Makeup Made in the USA which lists if the lines are cruelty free or not. Enjoy!

The beauty industry has risen to be one of the biggest commercial industries. However, there are still some cosmetics companies that do animal testing. While Korean beauty companies like Missha take pride in their company ethics, practices and values, there are still a lot of globally-available companies that pay for animal testing in China. You’d be surprised how a lot of these animal-cruel products still hit the shelf.

Animal cruelty is a serious offense but some companies still spend money on having their products tested on animals. There are a lot of reasons behind this practice, and this kind of testing has been done by top beauty brands for centuries. While some companies have stopped this kind of testing and resorted to healthier alternatives, there are still those that have stayed in the dark ages of product testing.

Here are some reasons why you should be supporting companies with cruelty-free products:

Below I’ll share why, and how best to put them to use.

10 Things You Should Do After Bleaching Your Hair

Joana Teixeira was sweet enough to write another guest post for us today! For better or for worse, I actually highlight my hair at home (are you gasping? lol). I was inspired by hair legend Jessie James Decker and talked about it in my Jessie James Decker Ombre Blonde Highlights at Home. Highlights = bleach though, which = damage so I asked Joana to help us with the after care to mitigate that damage and here’s what she said (with my comments in italics):

Botox vs. Dysport

Last year when I went home for the holidays I had so many friends and family members say “Wow you look GREAT!” Want to know my secret? I got Botox a week before going home for Christmas so it was in full effect! My forehead looked smooth, I looked more relaxed  and youthful, and it looked really natural and not frozen.

I also had less issues with my makeup getting caked in my wrinkles (the worst). I loved the effects SO much, but then it lasted about 2 months for me and it by 3 months it was completely gone! I was so sad because that stuff is expensive.

💉BOTOX TALK!💉 ▶️🎥 to see it in action! A week before Christmas got Botox for the first time in my forehead, between my brows and a little near the outer corners of my eyes (30 units total) at @alchemy43 and OMG I loved it so much! I got it a week before Christmas and when I was in Florida for the holidays people kept saying how good I looked and I swear Botox is why because I just looked so much more fresh! 🤕Does it hurt? No it’s the tiniest little prick and it was all over in maybe 3 minutes? I did have a headache afterwards last time, but I was also dehydrated, starving and got stuck in traffic and I will definitely avoid all of that next time. Like I say in the video if you’ve ever had a facial with extractions (which I had 3 days post and is why my face is a little blotchy) they are like 100x more painful than the needle. 💸How much does it cost? I paid $9/unit for mine so it was $270 total. They asked me if I wanted my forehead to have movement still or be totally frozen and I said idk? But if you asked me today I’d say I’d be happy if my forehead never ever moved again. ⏳How long does it last? It’s different for everyone it depends on how your body absorbs it. For me my forehead was almost back to normal movement in 2 months and totally 100% back by 3. I was like 😭😭😭 because I loved it so much! It kind of made sense though because I’m never super sensitive to medications like some people are. It can last 6 months or more on other people so you never know! 👱‍♀️👩👵When should you get it done? I got it for the first time when I was 30, but definitely could have gotten it sooner. I have so much sun damage from tanning that really messed me up which is why I have such deep lines on my forehead. There is not lotion, potion, or cream that can make deep wrinkles go away (I asked my dermatologist) so if you are wrinkly like myself this is your most effective treatment by far. 🎊🎉Big event coming up and thinking about Botox? Like I say in my video you will see optimal results in 3-7 days (mine were seen at 7 days for sure) so get it at least a week before the event, but I’d probably do 2 weeks before just in case any adjustments need to be made.

Recently I’ve been hearing more about Dysport and some people have been saying it lasts longer than Botox. I was curious if that was true and John Stuart was nice enough to write up a guest post all about Botox vs. Dysport.
