DIY hair removal using Strip It Sugar Wax

When I became a mom, I lost tolerance for waiting in line for my turn inside waxing salons.  Though I enjoy the convenience of having someone else do all the “dirty work” for me, I’d rather spend the precious minutes cuddling with my baby or doing some other mommy errand.  So I looked for hair…

Happy Skin Moisturizing Lippies

I was a beauty product noob.  When I was single, my kikay kit was so spacious. It only housed a pressed powder, a lip balm, a comb, and a bottle of cologne.  I did a lot of attempts to use trendy lippies, facial creams, and other beauty stuff my kikay friends raved about, but sadly,…
