Don't Go Into The Woods

The woods terrified me as a kid. Dark, untouched land shrouded from the world. The woods always seemed to have a life of their own. Full of things we don't see everyday and somethings that could frighten us. The woods always seemed creepy to me they still do. Either I've seen to many scary movies or read too many children's tales I always pictured walking too far into the woods and coming across a gigantic werewolf with an undying hunger for young meat. Or a decryptic, haggard old witch waiting for an innocent child to wander in. Either way this look was based upon my fear of the woods. 

I've been dying to take creepy pictures so they are just a tad edited with an overlay texture but that's about it. Here I built up my nose with latex turning it into an old, long turned down nose. I have been wanting to make a creepy mouth for a while and what's creepier than a huge mouth full of needles??

Chemical Burn.

HALLOWEEN IS ALMOST HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh don't pretend your not excited! It's my favorite holiday of all time. I love the spookiness and the enjoyment my sisters and daughter get out of dressing up and getting a couple pounds of candy.  Halloween is always a stressful all day kind of holiday. I spend the whole day planning out where were going, which costume goes to what kid, how many hours I have to do each makeup because my family and friends all think I have enough time to do huge elaborate pieces on them. Ah. lol Anywho. I restocked my sfx drawer with latex and misc. items in preparation for halloween. But you can't expect this girl to just wait until Halloween to crack open that latex and gelatine.... OOOOHHH no I must play with it.

The first thing I did was meant for movement or film since it bubbles and spews. Yummy right??

It's A 10 Hair Masque Review

Ah fall, how I missed you so. Even though your a sign that cooler weather is approaching and my hair and skin should prepare to fight the winter chill. Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love the cooler weather, changing of the leaves and seeing animals out and about gathering their food for winter. But the colder it gets the worst my skin and hair look and feel.  I've been noticing certain areas on my face are becoming drier and my hair is slowly feeling the same. This year fall made a quick exit and went straight to winter. It was colder here 2 days ago than it was in friggin Alaska!

I recently received It's A 10 Hair mask at Armstrong McCall as a gift for registering there. The owner is an absolute sweetheart. I heard so many great things about this product that I was excited to receive it in my gift bag.

It's A 10 mask has a lot of fragrance so if strong fragrance bothers you, I wouldn't recommend purchasing this.  I personally think it smell good but a little overpowering. The mixture is very light weight making it easier to remove when rinsing. So that's always a plus. I left this on for about 15 minutes and I didn't really notice a different. The only difference was that my hair smelled great and it was a little shinier.

I didn't enjoy it as much as some of my fellow cosmo girlies but I don't hate it. If you have dry-ish hair in need of A LITTLE  moisture I would recommend this. But don't expect this to work wonders. It's an alright product over all. 

Kenra Nourishing Masque Review

Being in cosmetology has it's ups, one great example is getting professional cards to Professional beauty stores. Getting to purchase high end colors, and shampoos/conditioners that aren't water down, repurposed and sold to walmart for cheap is rather refreshing.

One of the purchases I've made recently was the Kenra Nourshing Hair Masque. Like I've said previously I'm not much of a hair person. I don't do alot of shopping for hair products, washes or accessories. But I really needing a good hair masque. I think clean shiny natural hair is the most beautiful hair style. Anywho I purchased this masque for $22. This masque is a deep conditioner that is meant to repair and reconstruct dry, damaged hair. It has UV filter and antioxidants to prevent damage from the sun, and environmental stress plus prevent color fading.

I absolutely love this! I leave it on for 15 minutes once a week and it leaves my hair incredibly silky, softer than ever and intensely shiny. I have pretty coarse hair with minimum damage and it just transforms my hair. After I use this I just can't stop running my hands through my hair. Usually my hair is pretty tangled and slightly frizzy after I let it air dry, but when I use this deep conditioner my hair goes from lion's mane to sleek and tamed. I highly recommend giving this bad boy a try.
