Tipped Out all photos: Kristin Ess + thebeautydepartment.com post designed by kristin ess Lots of emails this week asking for a tutorial on Lauren’s temporary bright colors. Here I’ve replicated the process for you in 7 steps on an extension. TOOLS: highlighting comb, clips, foils, color brush, hair bleach with the appropriate volume (always seek a professional when using bleach), light pink color, dark pink color, light blue, dark blue, clear gloss. Step 1 Highlight the tips of the hair using hair bleach with the correct volume. Step 2 Fold up your foil and let it process until it reaches a pale blonde. Step 3 Shampoo and lightly condition bleach out of the hair. Step 4 Blow hair completely dry. Step 5 Place the hair on a foil. Step 6 Next, paint the light blue (or whatever color you choose) on the entire bottom 2/3. Step 7 Paint the very tips (or bottom 1/3) using the darker version of that color. This is such a fun summer trend and I hope everyone finds their own fun way of doing it.

Instagram Bans Connected Apps From Using 'Insta' Or 'Gram' Instagram has updated its Instagram Brand Guidelines to ban connected apps from using “Insta” or “Gram” in their names, as this could suggest that Instagram sponsors or endorses their product, TechCrunch reports. The company started sending out emails to existing apps with “Insta” or “Gram” in their names, asking them to make the relevant changes “within a reasonable period”. One of them was Luxogram. In a published email sent to the Luxogram team, Instagram says the use of “Insta” and “Gram” for an app that works with Instagram is harmful to the Instagram brand, and it is important for the connected app to develop its “own distinctive branding”. ➤ TechCrunch: Instagram Cracks Down On Connected Apps Using “Insta” And “Gram” Image Credit: Josh Edelson via AFP/Getty Images

How To Make Your Own Nail Polish In Any Color Pregnancy insomnia can be a little bit of a blessing (depending on how you look at it). Sometimes when I can't sleep I randomly get these ideas that just pop into my head. I quickly jot them down into my phone and revisit them when I am coherent in the morning. I would say only 30-40 % of them actually turn out like I imagined. Take this little project for example. I tested it out over the weekend to see if it would even work...and it worked! What you will need: Clear nail polish.Cheap eyeshadow. Take out the eyeshadow you want to use. Empty a small amount of clear nail polish out so you have room for the eyeshadow powder. Use the toothpick to mix up the color into the bottle. You now have you own custom shade of nail polish!
Making Bath Bombs | I’ve been making bath bombs for a long time. Once you get the hang of it, they are very easy to make. They make incredible gifts and cost a lot less than buying them from LUSH! Here is my simple recipe for you: 1 cup baking soda 1/2 cup cornstarch 1/2 cup citric acid (try your winemaking store for this) 1/4 cup thick sea salt (optional) 1/4 cup grated cocoa butter (optional) Extras: Food colouring, herbs, essential oils or fragrances. Witch Hazel in a small spray bottle. In a large bowl, combine baking soda, cornstarch, citric acid, cocoa butter and salt if using.

Thanksgiving Breaks Instagram Records: Over 10 Million Photos Shared 23 November '12, 06:07pm Follow Instagram saw a new record set during Thanksgiving 2012 in the US: 10 million photos shared at a rate of 226 per second during the peak at 12:40PM PST. For several hours on Thursday, its users posted more than 200 photos about the American holiday every second. In fact, the day broke all Instagram records, making it the busiest day for the mobile photo sharing service ever. The numbers are huge if you remember that Instagram typically sees over 5 million photos uploaded each day, and that Facebook averages about 300 million daily. Unsurprisingly, the two-year-old company is very happy about the news: We’re thrilled to see people use Instagram to share their holidays. In April 2012, Facebook announced its plans to acquire Instagram, but the social networking giant only officially welcomed Instagram into its family in September, right as the app passed the 5 billion photo mark.

Carried Away Triple Moisture Body Cream "I went into a Bath and Body Works shop with no particular lotion in mind, i just finally wanted to smell everything i could get my nose on and was hoping that one of the many lotions would stand out to me. This along with Pink Chiffon were the final winners of my sniff roulette game. The scent, carried away is described as how love sweeps you off your feet, i smell it as a scent that makes you feel like you just want to chillax after a morning bath. It has more of a fresh scent to it and I love it (If you are looking to buy the sea cotton island lotion as a fresh scent or as a lotion at all, you will have a horrid time with it.). 4 Outils pour Vendre des Produits sur Instagram Destination de plus en plus populaire, les détaillants utilisent Instagram pour montrer leurs produits mais aussi pour les vendre.
