SuperNovaHair.com Ombre Brazilian Bundles

As a beauty blogger and hair blogger, I have the opportunity to review all types of hair! I’m talking wigs, bundles, braids, and ponytails!! Though I particularly love wearing wigs so its always a BIG honor to be asked to review hair from hair companies.

This hair is from Super Nova Hair. This hair is Brazilian virgin ombre bundled hair that I made into a wig using the hot glue gun method. Im really feeling the color combination, it really looks like a custom professional dye job once installed. This is the way to go if you want to experience color with your bundles and you are not the “DIY” type. Just buy them already colored!!

Air Fried Naked Chicken Wings! #MyBellaLife

Recently, during Macy’s Columbus Day sale I purchased a Bella 2.6 quart air fryer! I have been wanting one of these machines for months now. I was introduced to this kitchen gadget by a friend whom loved it and swore by it. Though I must admit I was skeptical of air fryers, though Im skeptical of anything that has a 30+ minute infomercial.

But after experiencing the air fryer for myself, I was instantly sold! 

This machine makes the perfect wings! Im so happy that I bought it, I mean… it’s perfect for my busy lifestyle. I dont have to worry about messing up a bunch of dishes, pouring messy grease into a frying pan, and not to mention the clean up of all that grease splatter on the stove top! Eww! And there’s no nasty annoying fried food odor lingering around my apartment after using my air fryer!

This is how I prepared my wings! These are fresh chicken wings I picked up from the market. I seasoned them with my favorite seasonings. These wings were packed with flavor!! Yummmers!

My seasonings for my naked wings!

Once my wings were seasoned to my liking, I put them into the air fryer which had been pre-heated for 6 mins. I set the heat to 375. I let my wings cook for just about 36 mins. I did flip them after just about 15-20mins in.

These wings were perfection! Perfect for game night!! And prep and cook time is super easy!! I highly suggest this air fryer to anyone!!

Easy Ways to Get Super Smooth Skin

If you know that you have always wanted smooth skin but it is something that you struggle with then you have nothing to worry about. After all, you are really not alone. So many people want to have smooth skin but achieving that can be quite difficult if you have no idea what you are doing. For this reason, if you want to get around that then you can find out whatever you need to know right here.

What Prevents Skin from Becoming Smooth?

There are so many things that can stop your skin from becoming smooth. You may find that stress, ageing, UV rays and even air pollution can all contribute towards this. Dehydration can also stop your skin from being as smooth as it could be as well, not to mention that you also have to think about wrinkles, age spots, bruises and more. By understanding what stops skin from becoming smooth, you can then begin to try and combat the issue at the source.

Improving from Within

If you want to have the best skin then it is so important that you are able to skip any sugary treats. You also need to try and add more berries to your diet as well as this will help to stop any premature ageing. Other things that you can do includes eating more fish as this will give your body some much-needed Omega 3. This is essential if you want to have smooth skin as it will also help you to appear much more radiant. Of course, if you are not hydrating yourself enough then this is also going to cause your skin to become dry and this can easily be avoided. It is recommended that you drink around 8 glasses of water a day if possible, and there are so many apps out there that can help you with this. Some of them even remind you when it is time for you to have your next glass as well, and when you are able to take all of this into consideration you can then be sure to put your body on the right track for getting super soft, smooth skin. Of course, if you eat a lot of fatty foods then this can also be an issue because it will cause your skin to secrete more oils. This is the last thing you need so limit that and eat as much fruit and vegetables as possible.

 

Lifestyle Changes

It is more than possible for you to sleep your way to having beautiful skin. If you are able to get seven or even eight hours of sleep every single day then this can really help you to rejuvenate your skin and it can also help you to reduce any inflammation. Working out can also help you to boost your skin smoothness as well because it gets the blood pumping and it even prevents free-radical damage.  It is important to remember here that your skin is full of hormones, and if you want to try and regulate these then exercising is the way to go. If you don’t work out then you may find that your skin becomes puffy, oily and inflamed. You may not even notice this happening either, but over time, it can prevent it from becoming as smooth and as plump as it could be. Of course, if you want to get around this then you can try and workout or you can even go on some short walks every single day. Remember that the cold can really dry out your skin, so make the effort to try and wrap up warm if you are venturing out in the colder, winter weather.

Your Cleansing Routine

If you over-wash your skin then this can cause your skin to produce way more oil and you may even find that you experience even more breakouts as a result. This is especially the case on your face, neck, chest and back. If you want to get around this then you have to make sure that you remove any makeup with a gentle cleanse and that you also use a toner as well. When you do this, this will help you to remove any oil or even dirt that was left behind. Every single time you do this, you then need to follow up with some kind of moisturiser. A lot of people exfoliate to try and get rid of any dead skin cells and this is great, but you do need to make sure that you don’t do this too often. The main reason for this is because you could be causing yourself more harm than good and you may even be drying out your skin as well. By exfoliating only as needed, you can then improve the circulation in your skin, the collagen production and so much more. If you have any makeup brushes then you need to clean these off once or even twice a week if possible. If you are prone to breakouts then try and use soap that is unscented and as natural as possible, as this will help you to stop your skin from going blotchy.

Your Lips

If you suffer from lips that are cracked, dry or even flaky then get a toothbrush and go over your lips with some warm water. You do need to be very gentle when you do this. If this doesn’t quite work then it is more than possible for you to use a gentle lip scrub to try and get lips that are much smoother. When you do this, you will look way healthier as a result and you may even find that you can feel more confident as well. It is also a good idea for you to use lip balm, lipstick or anything else of the sort right after you do this as well as this will really help you to make the most out of your routine.

Take Care of Your Hands

Your hands and even your feet will go through a lot every single day. For this reason, it is so important that you are able to take very good care of them. Try your best to find an antioxidant or even a topical cream. This will really help you to get that super soft skin and it will also help you to hydrate it as well. If you are not quite sure which cream to go with then try and find one that contains shea butter, coconut oil and even vitamins as well. This will really help you to stop any skin roughness and it will also help you to make the most out of your skincare routine. Of course, if you are having trouble locating a cream that doesn’t make your skin blotchy then use the same tip as above and try to find a cream that is as natural as possible.  Aloe verea face masks are also ideal if you want to try and step your skin care routine up to that next level.

 

Skin Resurfacing

If you are still not able to get smooth skin then you may want to look into skin resurfacing. When you do this, you will go through a procedure that uses concentrated beams of light. This will increase your skin tone and even your texture as well. The appearance will be minimised and it is super effective. Your skin will take some time to heal but it is great if you have a lot of acne scars or if you are having problems with your skin in general.

Teami Blends 30 Day Detox + 1 Week UPDATE

I just finished my first full week of Teami Blends 30 Day Detox tea system. And I thought it would be nice to give you my thoughts of the system overall. I’ve tried other detox systems before so I feel that I can give you my detailed informative opinion of this detox tea brand.

First things first, here is what the system looks like. I honestly think that a lot of people order the tea system for the cute tumbler! I mean, it’s super cute and it’s the best for steeping the tea and infusing your water or tea with fruit if you choose.

Ok, with the 30 Day Detox system you get the Skinny tea and the colon tea. The skinny tea is a loose tea that you will scoop into your tumbler or glass, but it you do not have the infamous Teami tumbler you will need to purchase a silicon tea infuser to steep your tea.  The colon tea is enclosed in tea bags.

The skinny tea and the colon teas are pretty good, I’m a tea drinker so the tastes of teas really does tickle my fancy. I’ve to find a tea that I didnt like. I like to add lemon and organic honey to further heighten my tea drinking experience (I’m very extra!).  Once the Skinny tea hits the hot water, it expands as it steeps and it looks like you are drinking a salad.

The colon tea does promote a healthy digestive system, if you’re normally one who doesn’t go “number 2” daily, you will if you drink this tea daily. Be prepared for frequent bathroom visits. For me, I drink the colon team every other day, and daily on the weekends (that’s because I don’t work my 9-5 on weekends).

But by all means, if the frequency of the bathroom visits aren’t a big deal for you, then do it daily! Drinking the teas daily as directed is how you gain visible results of belly bloating shrinkage.

Here is my before and after results pictures after one week:

1 Week Progress Report

My belly is still chubs, though I can visibly see an improvement in my belly’s tone… With diet and exercise I know that I’m well on my way to where I would like to be physically.

Don’t judge my belly okay, I’m an emotional eatter! I’m going through some things right now, I really am.

TEAMI BLENDS!

To heighten your experience with the Teami Blends Detox, try to add a reduced calorie diet and some vigorous exercise to daily lifestyle.

In all honesty, I do like the tea and it does work as intended when the tea is prepared properly and consumed on a regular schedule.

I do have a discount code for you to use should you decide to order the Teami Blends 30 Day Detox or any Teami products.

Discount Code is MESHA for 15% Off your Entire order!

Curly Bob Wig GLS77 | FridayNightHair.com

I dont know what it is about Bob hair styles lately, but Ive been totally feeling them! I feel like I can never go wrong with this hair style. Friday Night Hair was gracious enough to send me beautiful number GLS77 to review and I instantly fell in love.

I mean… How cute is this? What’s not to love!!?? This style is literally perfect. I would say that its about 130% density, it is synthetic, and the lace is a brown swiss lace (harder lace). It sits just perfectly at the shoulders and you get just about an inch of parting space for styling along the front.

Friday Night Hair wigs are overall great synthetic wigs, and I highly recommend them for beginners and full on wig experts alike! THEY LAST A SUPER LONG TIME might I add!

Easy Ways To Destress After A Busy Summer

Whether you work from home, or you have a regular nine to five job, it’s easy to get caught up in the same routine day in and out. When this happens, it’s easy to get caught up in stresses in all areas of life. As you know, this isn’t good for your health, general well being, and of course, the eye bags! So how do you break out of the rigmarole that you’ve got yourself into? I’ve got some fabulous tips on how to destress after a busy summer – the easy way! 

Learn that it’s okay to say no sometimes

When your life is going by at 1000 miles per hour, it’s easy to take on more than you can handle. Whether that be doing overtime at work, helping friends and family with personal errands, or even going out on the town, it’s important to remember that it’s okay to say no sometimes. Being on the go 24/7 won’t do you any favours, and you’ll soon begin to notice that when you do say no, that you’re not feeling as stressed or uptight. Say no so that you can head home, stick your sweats on, and catch up on some well deserved you time!

Remove yourself from the situation

When you’re stressed out, it can be difficult to break out of the rut that you’re in – so how do you beat this? To put it simply: remove yourself from the situation and have a break in routine, and simply have some time for you! Why not look for some places to stay so that you can have a break away from everything? Perhaps you could invite some family members or close friends to join you so that you can turn it into a mini vacation!

Treat yourself to some pampering

Let’s face it, nothing sorts a girl out just as much as having a good old pampering session. Treat yourself to a trip to the salon to have your hair and nails done, grab a bottle of your favourite poison, run yourself a hot bath and relax! It doesn’t always have to be large changes in routine to help you destress and hit the reset button. There are some fabulous face masks that you can pick up that will do wonders for your tired out skin!

 

Chat it out with the girls

Finally, another way of destressing is by getting the girls together and putting the world to right! A problem shared is a problem halved, so don’t bottle up your stresses – even if they are minor. Plus, it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom either! Spending time with friends and making eachother laugh is sometimes the best medicine to cure stress!

 

Follow these steps and you’ll soon see that you’re no longer fretting over the small things, and that you’re back to your normal self in no time!

Stay Fresh & Fabulous On Your Next Flight

Ew. That’s the first thing we want to say. Just Ew. Flying is a necessity if you want to get to any destination in the world that isn’t your home country. The further you go, the more ew you feel. Flying is notoriously annoying, and it definitely isn’t known for making you feel fresh at the other side. But, considering there’s a big wide world out there for you to explore, you need to find a way to take that ew out of flying. Staying fresh and fabulous is actually more important than you think. I’m  not just writing this article so that you can land in your destination feeling like a beauty queen. I’m writing it so that you can land in your destination feeling refreshed and ready to explore. The last thing you want is to land, feel so horrible and tired, and just go to the hotel room to waste your first day. Travel ewness is a real thing, and I’m  about to solve it for you. So, if you have a holiday coming up and you want to make sure you look and feel the part when you land, then have a read of this article, and let me melt all of your troubles away!

 

Pack Some Essentials In Your Carry On

So, staying fresh and fabulous begins before you even step on the plane. You need to make sure you have a few items in your carry on to make sure that you can actually keep yourself fresh. It’ll work better if you have a handbag with you, because you don’t have to keep getting up and down to find it out of your carry on suitcase. So, the first thing you need to do pack deodorant and some perfume. One of the main reasons why you’re going to feel so ew, is because a plane can be a pretty smelly place, and if it’s hot, then you’ve got such a high risk of sweating a little, and feeling even more horrible. So, if you’re on a long haul flight, take yourself to the bathroom and have a spray of each. If you’re on a short haul, wait until it’s nearly time to land. Just simple spraying some deodorant will freshen you up, and make you feel ten times better. Secondly, take some moisturiser, for both your face and your hands. When you go to the bathroom, have a good wash of your face with cold water. It’ll wake you up, refresh your skin, and allow you to feel more alert. Apply a nice amount of moisturiser, and you really will feel fresh. An added bonus would be to buy a little mouthwash to give you mouth a rinse with. There’s nothing better than fresh breath!

 

Get Some Sleep

Sleep is so so important if you want to land in your destination and feel good. Obviously, if you’ve got a flight in the afternoon that’s only going to take two hours, then this one doesn’t really apply to you. But if you’ve had a 6 in the morning flight, and your flight is a few hours long, it’s really important that you try to get at least an hours sleep. It really will help to keep you fresh and fabulous when you wake up, as you won’t have that tired, drained look on your face. You can find tips for sleeping on a plane here, as we know to some of you, sleeping on a plane is pretty much impossible! The best thing you can do is listen to some relaxing music, have a gin and tonic or three, and have one of those travel pillows on standby. I definitely wouldn’t recommend drinking too much on your quest for sleep either. Just a little tipple to help you feel cosy will do!

 

Hydration & Moisturization

Hydration really is important on any length of flight. It’s well known that flying dries out every corner of your skin, making your skin look tired and dry. So, every hour, apply a light layer of moisturiser and lip balm. It might seem extreme, but your skin will thank you for it when you land. You should also make sure you’re drinking a bottle of water every hour. It might leave you needing a wee more than you would like, but it does help to make sure you’re hydrated. Hydration leads to alertness, and it also prevents your skin from drying out. If you’re on a long haul flight, it’s more important to make sure you’re drinking plenty, as you can actually fall ill from not doing so!

What is Jade Rolling?

I have recently discovered Jade Rolling, I saw Tracie Ellis Ross doing it in one of her Instagram videos. And I was immediately interested! Not only did it look interesting, but the tool itself looked fabulous!

Here’s the one I picked up from Amazon. It’s said the be made of Jade stone and Jade stone is also said to have healing properties.

Jade Rolling helps with depuffing, lymphatic drainage, and helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and help to increase the skin’s firmness.

I enjoy using my Jade roller as part of my pampering routine, the cool feel of the Jade Rolling across my skin feels really relaxing and I do see actual improvements in the appearance of my skin.
