1. Rosehip oil: this oil has an instant fiming and plumping effetct. use on bare, clean skin or dab a few drops on your beauty blender to achieve a dewy finish.
2.Palmer’s cocoa butter strech mark cream: besides the fact that this lotion will have you smelling like choclate cake, it actually works on improving the skin elasticity and making softer and smoother.
3. clay powder: because we sweat a lot during the summer, our pores are more likely to clog…I use a clay mask twice a week and i can see that my skin is cleaner just when i rinse the mask off.
4.SPF: PLEASEEE!!! don’t skip this.ever.you need to wear this 366 days a year. the sun damages the skin in an irreversable way, it causes wrinkles, zits, dark spots and more severe damages to the dermes of the skin. make sure you use Mineral sunblock and not chemical sunscreen. mineral sunblock prevents the UVA and UVB rays from getting absorbed into the skin, unlike chemical sunscreen. I use the derma E spf, i got it from iherb, it’s natural, eco friendly and vegan.
5. leave in mask: apply before going out to the sun and before swimming to protect hair and keep it shiny and preventing shedding.
6.biotin: again…only use this if your doctor says it’s ok. i take one a day and i have crazy long, strong nails. haven’t seen an effect on hair growth however.
7.H2O: not going to elaborate her. stay hydrated please.
8.spearmint tea: let me tell you about this magical tea. I have done a lot of research on the subject of lowering testosterone levels in women that may cause unwanted hair growth and irregualr periods and acne. one research said that drinking at least two cups of spearmint ( not mint ) tea will get the job done so i’ve been doing this for the past two months and i have noticed that my periods are not late, also, unwanted hairs are taking longer to grow back, and my skin is clear like a crystal mirror. this is my prsonal experience, but it can’t hurt if you try, it tastes amazing.
9.pumice stone: for inbetween your pedi’s…soak your feet in water and vinegar for as long as possible and then wet a pumice stone and scrub it on your soles.
11.honey: apply to your face twice a week and leave on for at least 30 mins.
12.sugar and olive oil : mix together and exfoliate your legs after shaving then shave again! No strawberry skin
13. tea tree oil: can be used to moisturize your bikini line after shaving.
14.castor oil+jojoba oil: mix and store in a container, aply onto the roots of the hair only and preferable the roots that are on the bottom of your hair, you can apply using an old mascara brush. don’t wash your hair and leave it on for as many days possible, you can wear caps and hats to cover up your hair if it looks greasy. this will speed the hair growth process like black magic.
this is a first for FuckYeahDollsOfColor, but I feel I must share this with you.

#334: “I honestly think that the best couple in any Barbie movie is Eric and Clara in The Nutcracker. As I re-watched the movie I noticed how well they play off each other, and how they’re just so gentle when around each other. Their relationship grew overtime, and not in the span of a day and the end scene where they dance together is really something special. I feel like in the future, they would make amazing parents and be happy as husband and wife. I hope for a relationship like theirs.”

#401: “I never realized that Nutcracker was the first movie and that Barbie movies had only been around for 16 years. Two nights ago I watched Nutcracker with my 6-year-old sister and 5-year-old brother. Tonight is Princess and the Pauper, which is my favorite.”
#280: “The scene in Barbie in The Pink Shoes with the Nutcracker and Sugarplum Fairy really upset me. It was like they spit in the face of Barbie in The Nutcracker. They could have made it a loving homage, but instead they seemed to disrespect not only the original story and ballet of The Nutcracker, but the first CGI Barbie movie, too. They handled the Swan Lake segments so well, so why did they treat Nutcracker so poorly? Still a good movie, but that part irks me.”
