3 Tips to Make Your Hair Grow Longer

So today I decided to do a post that is for the girls trying to grow out their hair. :) For me,I'm not gonna lie,I pretty much have super long hair. It's kinda to the point that it's stopped growing,but it's pretty long. Here's my top three tips I suggest! :)

1. Trim regularly. You should probably schedule a trim around every seven weeks. Because let's face it, split ends just don't look good. Long hair needs healthy ends! :)
2. Be careful when it comes to heat. If you're like me, you use a heating tool almost every single day. Heat can damage hair, so just make sure to be careful and always use a heat protectant.
3. Healthy inside, healthy hair. Eating healthy actually does affect healthy hair growth. The more good you put into your body, the more beautiful your hair will look! :)

Are you growing your hair out? :) If you have any more tips, leave them in the comments below!

How To: Apply False Eyelashes

With Halloween coming,I thought now would be the perfect time to do a how to post on applying fake lashes! :) Personally,I don't really like false eyelashes. I just find they look way too dramatic on me. But for those of you who do like to wear them,I hope this post helps! :) I  think the thing to remember with fake lashes is that practice makes perfect! Believe me,I found applying them very tricky when I first tried!

1. Trim the lashes. I find that usually lashes are wider than my eye, so I trim one side.

2. Squeeze a thin line of eyelash glue along the lash. Blow slightly on it so it gets tacky.

3. Using tweezers, place the eyelash as close to your lash line as possible.

4. Press both ends and hold until glue dries. This makes the glue set so when you take your fingers away, the lash won't come with them.

5. Apply mascara to both your lashes and the false lashes to blend them together.

6. If you didn't use black eyelash glue, you might want to apply black eyeliner to fill in any gaps.

I hope these tips helped you with applying your falsies! :)

TV Love: My Two Current Favorite TV Shows

So lately I've been loving two singing shows. I've actually liked both of them for a while,but each of them recently launched into a new season,so I thought I'd do a blog post about them!

The first one is The Voice. I actually started watching this during its first season,and I've been hooked ever since. And this show is very easy to get hooked into! The judges are just amazing and super likable. I get so excited on days this comes on!

The next show is The X Factor. This show is defiantly a tad more critical when it comes to judging,which makes it more intense then The Voice,in my opinion. In all honestly, I like this better than The Voice. I am obsessed with this show. Don't even get me started,haha! This actually comes on tonight,and I could not be more excited! It's such a great show!

I highly recommend both of these shows if you like singing competition shows. They are both so good!  Totally two of my all-time favorite shows. :)

What's your new favorite TV show? :)
