Harajuku Fashion Walk #4 Cute Kawaii Fashion Style

Image
I attended my fourth Harajuku Fashion Walk recently, so I wanted to share it with you all. If you are not familiar with Harajuku Fashion, it includes a variety of fashion styles from multi-colored hair, goth, punk, rock, kawaii (cute girl), lolita (European and Victorian style clothing), gyaru (tan dark skin & wild sexy clothing and makeup), Japanese traditional mixed with Western (traditional Japanese clothing such as kimono and yukata paired with Western clothing like jeans and heels), cosplay (dressing as anime characters), to Visual Kei styles.

This Harajuku fashion walk took place down by the Waterfront in Washington DC. The walk started at a coffee shop, and then we walked to Pralines Bakery for some macaroons 🍬.





We then started to walk again, and we made our way down to the water alongside the peer. Many people were in the area eating outside; children were playing in the water in the little water park; there were outdoor TVs playing sports games, and we even got to see a pe…

GlycerinNiacinamidePearl PowderPearl ExtractAdenosinePortulaca Oleracea ExtractSilicaMineral WaterMother of PearlShade Range: It comes in only 5 light shades: Vanilla, Petal, Beige, Sand, and Tan. I have the darkest shade, which is Tan.

Scent: This BB cream does contain fragrance but it is so mild, that if I wasn't looking for a fragrant smell, I wouldn't know it was in it; this BB cream just smells like clay to me, so if you are sensitive to perfume scents, this one won't likely bother you.

Hello everyone! It is time for another product review. The product I will review today is the: CoverGirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir liquid foundation in the shade 760 Classic Tan.

Cost: $6.99 - $10 depending on where you buy it.

Cruelty Free: Yes, CoverGirl is cruelty free; they don't test on animals 🐰.



Brand Promises:CoverGirl promises that this foundation: Will hydrate your skin, make it look flawless, have buildable coverage, be lightweight, be oil free, minimize oily shine, glide on smoothly, and give your skin a healthy luminous glow. 

Shade Range: This foundation has 14 shades. About four of the 14 shades are for darker more tan women like me. The shade that I have is the shade 760 Classic Tan, which is the second darkest shade. 



I am a little disappointed by the shade range. Normally CoverGirl is really good about having a fair shade range, but considering that there are 14 shades in total and only 4 are darker shades, CoverGirl could have done a lot better to make this foundation…

5 Mites Parasites That Live In Your Hair & Cause Balding Hair Loss Thinning & Alopecia

Image
When it comes to hair loss, thinning, and balding, the leading culprits are parasitic mites. Mites are spreading very easily, and they are hard to get rid of because their eggs get all over your body, and then they end up all over your home. They are in your bed, your brushes and combs 💇, towels, rags, clothing 👕, and furniture. Anyone who comes in contact with you or your home, can easily get them and then share them with those they live with in their own home. So it is important that we understand mites and recognize when we have them so that we can treat ourselves and get rid of them. 

In general, mites feed on you, drink your blood, and steal your nourishment. This is what can stop your hair from growing and cause thinning, balding, and hair fall out. If the mites are allowed to continue reproducing, they can make you feel anemic and tired, so for optimum health, you must be mite free.


Here are 5 of the most common mites that are found in or around hair.
