Summer Hair Styles

Headbands are so hot right now. Whether you wear a conventional headband, head wrap, or use a scarf, this style looks hot on anyone. Either comb your hair straight back or part it on the side. Black is the best color to get. You can get a great headband from just about any store. From Wal Mart to Claires to the mall you are sure to find one that is best for you.

The ponytail is so classic and very much in style right now! Whether high on the head on low near the back or your neck, it’s classic, yet sexy. You can wear it pulled straight back, parted in the middle, or a deep part on the side. Make sure to use hair spray or hair gel to keep back flyaways and frizzies.

The bun is such an elegant and feminine hairstyle for women. It can range from casual to dressy depending on how you do it. Tease your hair and throw it up in a messy bun for everyday wear. Or slick it back neatly with hair gel. It’s a style you can even wear to work.

A beautiful, neat braid either alone (as in picture) or wrapped into a neat bun is just so elegant and pretty! Use a small elastic to secure the end of the braid. If wrapping the brain into a bun, make sure to wrap the tail under the bun and secure with bobbypins. You could even dress is up with a small rosette. A braid is almost always appropriate.

Ruffled, messy short hairstyles are also very chic right now. If you have short hair, use a small amount of mousse or hair gel and mess it up while drying it. The choppy bangs are really stylish right now too. It’s a great summer style for beach or by the pool! If I hadn’t spent the last 16 months trying to grow my hair back out, I would cut it short again too!!

Dove – Energy Glow Daily Moisturizer

NEW Dove® Energy Glow™ Daily Moisturizer with Subtle Self-Tanners gradually adds a beautiful summer glow to skin. Fast-absorbing and with a delightful fragrance, it moisturizes and gradually enhances your natural skin color.

Available for Fair Skin Tones and for Medium Skin Tones.

My Review: I usually have a really hard time with self tanners. They either streak, are the wrong color, or smell horribly! With Dove, I didn’t have ANY of these problems. I used it every day for 2 weeks and got an amazing tan! As with any self tanner though, it did wear off. I think the best way to use it would be to put it on as soon as you get out of the shower. Then take a shower every day and wash up with Energy Glow™ Body Wash. I highly recommend this product to anyone who doesn’t want to subject themselves to the harmful rays of the sun.

My review: I can’t shave my legs very often. If I do, I break out in a rash. I have very sensitive skin. So I wax my legs once every 4 weeks and shave 3-6 times in between. This is the only wax kit that I will use. I’ve tried quite a few different things like Nair, One Touch, Nad’s, and none of them worked nearly as well as Veet.

Mexican Spinach Dip

This is one of my personal recipes. I mistakingly invented it last Friday as a dinner item. I served it with flour tortillas and my husband loved it!

It’s a very hearty dip and I think it would be best served with corn tortilla chips or pita bread. It’s great for parties!! Your guests will love it!

INGREDIENTS:

Sauce:
    * 2 cups of whole milk
    * 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
    * 1/2 cup queso cheese sauce
    * 1/2 tsp Garlic salt
    * 1/2 tsp Onion powder
    * dash of pepper
    * 1/2 tsp Franks Hot Sauce
    * 4-5 tablespoons of all purpose flour (to thicken sauce)

Meat Mixture:
    * 1-2 lbs of ground beef or ground turkey
    * 1 small can black olives
    * 1/2 cup salsa
    * 1 13oz can of spinach (or approx 2 cups fresh/cooked)
    * 1/2 tsp Garlic salt
    * 1/2 tsp Onion powder
    * dash of pepper
    * 1/2 tsp Franks Hot Sauce

Other:
    * 1-2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese

DIRECTIONS:

First, combine all sauce ingredients in sauce pan. Blend together and let sit on medium heat while you prepare the other ingredients.

In a large fry pan, cook the ground turkey with all above spices listed for the meat mixture. When meat is completely cooked, add the olives, salsa, hot sauce, and spinach.

Turn oven on Bake and set to 350°. Meanwhile, keep stirring the sauce until thick. If it’s too thin, add more flour. If it seems to thick, add a little bit of milk. When you are happy with the consistency, turn off the heat and let it set.

When all the ingredients in the meat mixture are hot and all mixed together, pour the sauce into the fry pan with the meat, and stir everything together. Turn off stove.

Finally, pour the entire mixture into a glass or non-stick 13″ X 9″ pan. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on the top and then pop it in the oven. Let bake for approx 10 minutes or until cheese is completely melted. Take it out of the oven and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
