Distant Love…5 Relationship tips for long distant lovers!

tumblr_kwq037vyph1qak6kio1_500 Hey there beauty lovers here is a different approach to my normal posts! My boyfriend and I are almost to our anniversary of four years! We are very much in love and happy and it has inspired me to create this post! Since we started dating, my boyfriend and I have been living and going to college in different states and it has definitely been hard, but so worth it. I know many of you have significant others that live way further than an hour or two away but these tips apply to all living apart, or as just dating tips in general! 🙂

1) Be loyal. This one comes as an obvious, but there are a lot of unfaithful people out there. Treat your partner how you would like to be treated. Don’t be flirting, seeing, or talking to any other person behind your lovers back. Be faithful to yours, and be real with them. If you stray or aren’t interested anymore then break it off, cheating  just causes more heart ache on both people’s end. It is a waste of time and effort in a relationship if someone is unhappy enough to cheat.

2) Be open and honest! When there is distance between any relationship, it can call for miscommunication and misunderstanding. Through texting, talking, or whatever you can never really know what are the intentions or tone that your other is speaking with. It is always better to call, or better yet video chat and really communicate fully especially with fighting or serious matters. Let them know how you are feeling, but as well how they are. Distance can cause an emotional toll on people, so it’s good to check in with one another.

3) Don’t freak out over the little stuff. This goes with choosing your battles. If you find yourselves fighting over something positively stupid, then drop it. Ask yourself if the fight your having is really worth the tie and energy in your relationship. Fight the big ones, and loose the ones that are for nothing. Constant bickering on top of distance is a sure way to drift apart.

4) Trust them, not cause them. Trust me, this is a lesson I had to learn. It doesn’t matter how much you trust your love, sometimes when their far away and you don’t talk and see each other as much, your imagination can run wild! You think oh they will find someone better than me, or are at some girls (or boys) house and aren’t staying faithful. This can cause you to panic a little and feel vulnerable. I am saying if they love you and you can trust them then you can learn to calm down. You don’t need to constantly be texting them being like where are you, who are you with, ect. Learn to let go and trust them or it can cause you guys to fight and develop un grounded trust issues.

5) Keep Current. Don’t just text all day long. Spice things up, and loose the boring to word texts! Skype, Instagram, snap chat, late night call, anything to keep up with your loved one. Talking through type only goes so far, but seeing them and hearing them or even getting silly face snap chats really can help you both feel like they never left.

Some Extras!

-My boyfriend and I write each other letters whether they are hand written or on an email. Just knowing they took that extra time to write you something long and sappy really is sweet!

-We are both artists so we draw each other pictures! This is something very personal and thoughtful, if you can’t draw then bake them some food, or play them online in a video game! Get creative!

-Keep a picture. My boyfriend has our prom picture on his desk where he is, and I have one of us together on my night stand. Little ways of remembrance is great for relationships.

-Enjoy the time you have together. If you get a weekend or whatever to see one another, don’t spend it sleeping in late or in a bad mood. Plan ahead and do some fun activities wheat he fit is baking a nice dinner together or getting an espresso and reading some books at Barnes and Nobles the possibilities for bonding are endless!

-Look forward to something. Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, big events, vacations, all things you do together! If you have something coming up you are going to do together plan and talk about it and the time from then and the get together will fly by and get you excited! Love each other and listen and you will have a long an amazing time with whomever your heart is with. If you have any questions or comments let me know down below 🙂 Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Tips to Surviving Commuting to College!

Okay…this is not a beauty post…but in my personal experience with being a college kid commuting back and forth from home to school, these simple tricks and changes really have made college easier on me! :0 I am half way done with college and so far, it has definitely been a challenge commuting! Part of my really wishes I were living on campus, but it is not really in the cards for me and can’t reason with my self to spend 10 k extra each year to live in a 2 by 2 dorm instead of my nice big comfy room back home. I shouldnt complain it’s only a 30 minute commute, but one of the hardest things about traveling to college, is that I still feel like I am in high school. I wake up early…go to school and come home :/ I don’t feel like a college kid being all social and having fun, but hay it’s the life of a full time college commuter with 2 jobs lol. Any commuters out there finding it is hard to make friends? Sure I have many friends in my classes and I am pretty social, but it is not like I go out and explore campus with the girls, go get dinner, or what not…I go home to my family :/ But, all in all I am saving money, and really focusing on school over a social life I guess. What are you guy’s experiences with being a college commuter?

439f5080bb9d0a22159163e9f6f2459f

Here are some Tips!

  • Time Management! Theee most important tip. Get an agenda…write down all your classes, homework, assignments and get organized. There is no way you can manage college properly without having a managed schedule, especially if you work or internship as well.
  • Be Prepared. I always make sure, the night before each school day I have my clothes laid out with my backpack and purse, filled with everything I need for the day. DO bring assignments and extra paper, Don’t bring your whole room in your bag! I learned this the hard way…I would be traveling across campus on buses with a purse, lunch bag, art portfolio, backpack, plus other crap. Simplify your belongings as much as you can! If you can find a locker or are given one, use that opportunity! Store whatever you don’t need at home, and any heavy textbooks you can leave at school so they aren’t weighing you down. Remember to lock your locker, people are devious…See if you can share textbooks with your friends, this will save money, and weight in your bag! Being a commuter, you may not have time to go to your car or home, so what you have on you is what you are carrying all day long. ca934612c81b8d822b0f6021564e5b0d
  • Planning for weather can be a life saver…keeping a pair of rain boots and an umbrella in your car or locker just in case can change a day of soaking wet paints and scary hair into an okay walk across campus in the rain :p
  • Save Money. College is expensive enough already. You can really save money in little ways that add up to a lot. If you are driving in to school, consider car pooling. The parking spot fee and gas can break the bank, so see if there is a car pooling discount and drive in with your buddies!
  • Love Coffee? Skip Starbucks…Even Dunks is cheaper, or invest in a coffee maker…Trust me $7 Java Ship Fraps add up….If you love energy drinks, don’t spend $4 at a vending machine on campus, buy them at home where you can find them cheap at a store.
  • Packing a Lunch. If you don’t having a meal plan like other college kids…pack a lunch. I know it is totally middle school but buying food from your school’s cafeteria everyday will make you poor. Just throwing some fruit, chips, and sandwich in your bag and maybe a red bull will definitely be worth it.
  • Bring water and Chapstick…for some reason those are the best two things I have in my bag…I ALWAYS NEED THEM lol
  • Use your breaks wisely. If you have any breaks between your classes, work on some homework. Because I commute, I don’t want to do anything when I get home lol So on my breaks I snack and work on any homework, so when I get home I can mostly just relax and not worry about anything else! Besides, when you’re at school they have all the resources you need like the library, computers, and workspaces.
  • Give yourself time in the morning…Nobody likes being the smell kid in class who forgot to print out their paper on the day it was due….Give yourself enough time to gather your school stuff, print out a paper last minute, wash your face and brush your teeth. Trust me it relieves a lot of stress knowing you are prepared, looking somewhat decent, and have all your homework. This goes a long with sleep…driving, commuting, going across campus take energy not to mention actual class…being well rested, somewhat, is a must. 0c07a7577343de766dc0c8ee26f9aa06
  • Have Fun. Commuting and making friends can be tough…Look into your school and check out some clubs, events, and activities. Even getting a work credit, is a way to meet other students and earn some cash! Attending on campus sports events, fairs, and clubs or music groups will help you get out there and enjoy college without living at college.

I really hope these tips helped you guys out if any of you are experiencing commuting as I am! 🙂 Let me know what your tips are for college in general in the comments below! 🙂 Like for more college tips and posts! Thank you guys so much for reading, Love Pearlsnheels ❤

Better & Cheaper Dupe for Philosophy’s Purity!

wpid-20130916_190714.jpg

You must be thinking I am nuts by the title of this post…I know you are! But for real guys, I have done it! I have found the best dupe for the ultimately loved face wash out there Philosophy’s Purity. If you watch Youtube videos, go to Sephora, or are an avid blog reader…then you know that Purity is one of the most if not the most popular and sought out face wash recently. Although it is talked about, and people swear by it, I am here to tell you the price and quality of the Philosophy Purity face wash is not worth the price and time you spend to purchase it…and I have a better and cheaper alternative; Phisoderm’s Ph Balanced Cleanser.

If you have the cash, and do not have acne prone, oily, or dry skin, then sure go for it, buy the face wash that everyone has! But if you are like me and are on a beauty budget, have acne prone skin, and have combination oily to dry skin, then keep reading loves, momma is going to hook you up! :p

wpid-20130916_190736.jpg

So here we go! A 1 to 1 non-bias and honest review of the two! Pros + Cons, personal experience, and more!

#1 Purity by Philosophy:

wpid-20130916_190808.jpg

Personal Experience:

To be honest..I had been using the Phisoderm face wash for years before I tried the Philosophy’s Purity cleanser. Although it was amazing, I wanted to try something new! After getting my ear talked off by beauty gurus on Youtube, about how amazing Purity is, I decided to give in and buy my own bottle. So upon going to Sephora, I found out how darn expensive this face wash really is. I thought to myself why in the heck is face wash, something you put on then wash off, so pricey?! But…I caved in and figured it must be worth the money considering all the hype it has caused. I was too poor at the time to afford the larger bottle for $22, so I figured the 3 oz bottle for $10 would be a good investment to see if I liked it first, before I bought a larger bottle.

When getting home, at the end of the night, I jumped in the shower, and gave my face a good wash. I was certainly not impressed upon first impression. But no product is amazing, with only one try. To be fair, I decided to use most to all the product before formulating any opinions of the face wash. After trying most of the wash in the bottle, I was certain it was not for me…or my wallet. Also, to give it a fair shot I tried it in the shower, out of the shower, with cold & warm water, after exfoliating, and without exfoliating, with a vibrating facial tool, and even just my hands washing my face. Let’s just say I tried it every which way in every condition possible…my opinion has not changed one bit.

Pros:

  • Ph Balanced
  • Creamy not soapy
  • Gentle around eye area
  • Contains mostly natural ingredients
  • Residue free finish
  • Very accessible
  • Well known name brand/reputation
  • Nice packaging Design
  • Descent Smell
  • Good range of sizes (Nice to have a Travel Size)

Cons:

  • Cost (Smallest bottle sz is $10, then 22, then $33, and $41) !!!!
  • It is a pour bottle, not a pump (Unsanitary and messy)
  • Doesn’t behave like a ph balanced cleanser
  • Consistency is almost of water
  • Contains Alcohol
  • Contains Color Dye Yellow
  • Doesn’t claim to be dermatologist recommended

Thoughts: Although the packaging is very eye catching and clean looking, the functionality of the packaging is not great. The bottle would be a lot better if it were a pump, this really annoys me and wish it were changed! Although it claims to be ph balanced, it still leaves my face kind a blotchy, red, and not at all any calmer or clearer and is not dermatologist recommended apparently. It did not help any existing acne, and I felt as if my face became dryer. After washing, it feels like I still had foundation left on my skin, and I needed to wash my face again. This product did not benefit my skin in any single way. It was very expensive, and was not at all worth the cost. Although it is nice in a way that you can buy it almost anywhere, buy a number of sizes, and is natural and eye-friendly, the product contains alcohol and color dye which is pretty bad in my book considering I have very sensitive skin.

On bottom: The first pump in the picture is Purity looking weak and running…The Phisoderm is on bottom looking milky and bold 🙂
wpid-20130916_190911.jpg

 #2 Phisoderm Ph Balanced Facial Cleanser:

wpid-20130916_190824.jpg

 Personal Experience: I first bought this face wash in 8th grade when my skin was more problematic. Back then I had a lot of cystic and hormonal acne, mostly on my chin and t-zone 😦 Since the 8th grade however, my skin really has come a long way and is mostly cleared up and calm. I definitely attribute that fact to this face wash! Although I stopped using it off and on, I only tried other cleansers because I felt tempted by raved about products and brands. This however is the only product to transform my complexion and not only clear up my acne but control my oily and dry patches.

Each time I would try another type of face wash, or the latest brand, my face would end up irritated, broken out, super dry and flakey, or more oily. After I abused my face each time by trying something new, I would always end up using the Phisoderm wash, to fix and repair my skin! Now, I only use this bad boy, and will never go back. I wash my skin with this every day, and most nights when I remember to :p I exfoliate 3 times a week or whenever needed with my facial vibrating brush as well. This is all I am doing for my skin now, and it has been a fool proof routine for beautiful skin! I pair the cleansing with an occasional toner, and everyday face moisturizer with SPF and I am in love with my skin now! 😀

Pros:

  • The Price! I got mine for $5 for 6 oz. (Double the size of the smallest Purity bottle, and half the cost)
  • Creamy milky wash, not harsh or soapy
  • Leaves my skin calm, glowing, and happy (Acting how a ph balanced cleanser should!)
  • Contains all kinds of natural ingredients exactly the same as the Purity’s: Mineral Oils & Leaf Juice (Plus this one has Chamomile and aloe to sooth skin! Also Flower Extract and Vitamin E wish moisturizes your skin)
  • Dermatologist Recommended
  • After washing, my skin doesn’t feel tight or dried out
  • PUMP BOTTLE! The bottle has a nice and easy to use pump, no mess, spilling, or wasting…and is more sanitary!

Cons:

  • Accessibility…I got mine from Bed Bath and Beyond, you can probably find it at Target or Walmart, but may take some searching
  • Not as well known brand
  • The smell is very soap like smelling
  • Only comes in one size bottle
  • Not fun to have in mouth or eyes! Lol…

Thoughts: As far as a facial wash, this is a 10 out of 10. I love it and will not buy another face wash anymore! This is so worth all the money you spend on it, and when I say that I mean it’s amazing for $5! Even though it should be more expensive than the Purity, for how amazing it works! It is creamy and healthy feeling on my skin, and one wash is all I need. It is gentle, and my go to product. It has made my face clear, calm, and fresh looking. It doesn’t leave my skin dry, but still controls my oil buildup. Apart from being dermatologist recommended, and full of amazing ingredients, it even takes all my foundation, powder, primer, and what not off! Although you can’t find it just anywhere, and it tastes like dirt and stings a bit if you get it in your mouth or eyes…but why am I getting it in those places in the first place?! Only changes I would say is to the outdated packaging design, and smell…but hay it is better than alcohol and dyes being in the formula, and getting it everywhere like the Purity.

A Final Word: Obviously I gave both of these facial cleansers a try. I was not biased and  I tried both, and gave a good length of time to form an opinion and see how my face adjusted. I really did want to love the Purity, and wanted to see what all the hype was about. Although it cleans your skin some what, it falls short in price, handling, and results. It is a waste of your money, and time. I am not being harsh, these are just my completely honest opinions, and I will not buy the Purity cleanser again. There was nothing special about it besides its’ amount of fans. I am not being paid nor sponsored to say anything or promote anything, I just figured I would help you guys out and let you know what’s up with facial washes! :p I love the Phisoderm, and one hundred percent recommend it to anyone whether you have acne prone or clear skin, it works great for my family and I who all have different skin types.

Please give it a try if you are a non believer in the  so called magic of the Purity like me! :p Let me know what you think of either of these products, whether you love one or hate another. Leave me some love in the comment section 🙂 or let me know if you love Purity and think I am just bat sh*t crazy 😀 ha ha…

DIY Cute Bow Back Shirt! So Easy! No SEW!

Hey there girlies! Here is something new to my channel! Do it yourself stuff! Although this is my first one and I will include instructions and pictures of what the results came out looking like, but my next one I will add some picture by picture tutorials for my next DIY posts! So please bare with me 🙂 In this DIY idea post I will show you how my t-shirt came out, the front and the back. Plus the video that inspired me to make it, so keep reading! :p

wpid-IMG_20130816_185036_237.jpg

wpid-IMG_20130816_185131_579.jpg

I got inspired to create this look because I had so many large t-shirts lying around, and I love the print on them, but I wouldn’t wear a plain large t-shirt, it is just not my style :p I definitly like flashier clothes, and have been really into shirts with cut outs and that have been hand altered. I love fringing, bow back, bowl neck, and more styles you can do with scissors! So I set a side all my cool looking t-shirts that were way too big for me and decided to look up some Youtube videos on DIY t-shirt cutting. There are so many out there, so I would suggest looking through them because there really is a million ways to cut a t-shirt lol :p

I used my Thor shirt….Of course! I love Thor, and this shirt, but the neckline was too high for me, and the bottom was baggy so I never wore it :/ SO, I grabbed it, some white chalk or white eyeliner pencil (both wash out in the washing machine) some scissors, and your body! 😉 haha. The best way to figure out how you want your t-shirt to look is by wearing it first! This way you know exactly how it will look when it is all cut up and finished.

For this look in particular, the bows, I used the video below by Salina Siu. Although the girl talks for a bit in the beginning, it is a really easy and good tutorial to follow! This is a no sew video, which is nice if it is a last minute creation before you run out the door for the night. But if you want something more secure, that will last being washed, without being worried about things coming undone, just grab some black thread and a needle. Hand sewing is so easy, even if you have never done it before! Just putting a couple stitches here and there on this shirt will be quick and ensure that the ties are secure, but without sewing it will work just as fine 🙂

I added my own variations to my shirt after the video! I wanted to dress mine up a bit more, so I used four bows in the back because my shirt is larger. I also, wanted to make it into a smaller strapped tank top so I took some left over cloth from the sleeves and tied it around the top of the straps and pinched it together with the inner neck hole and held it together on each side with strips of the left over fabric like you do on the bows on the back. I also used some extra strips of cloth from the other sleeve and cut a hole in the bottom of the t-shirt on each side of my waist and tied a little bow. This brought in the shirt two inches so it was more form fitting on the bottom and less baggy 🙂 and made it look a bit cuter! 🙂


I hope you guys enjoyed this post and it was helpful for you! Let me guys know if you like DIY posts and I will do more of them, but with picture by picture directions! :0 Thank you so much for reading and Love always Pearlsnheels ❤

Green Makeup for Green Eyes…Another big eye look!

Hello there green eyed girls! Or other eye colored beauties! This look looks great with whatever eye color you have and if you are just wanting to use up some green eyeshadow! This look is intense and mystical looking. I had a lot of fun creating this look, and if you want to re-create it on your own eyes keep reading! 🙂

image

 

As you can see below, this look is made up of different hues and finishes of green eyeshadows. I used a light gold on my brown bone and inner corner of my eye to open my eyes up and make them look bigger and brighter! I then applied dark mossy green color to the inner corner (above the gold) and the out corner then blended the colors out to look smooth and smokey. I glammed up with look with a dab of gold eyeshadow pigment on the ball of my eye, on top of my lid. This is well will give the appearance of larger eyes, because the light will reflect off of your eyelid.

image

 

Here you can see I added some mascara, but skipped the eyeliner. Eyeliner can take away from all the work you put into your shadows on your lid. Besides, kipping the eyeliner can give your look a fresher appeal and enhance the length of your lashes! Using these green eyeshadows, with darks and lights, can connect with your own green eye shade, and make your eyes look greener! My eyes always jump in the intensity of their color when I use green shadows. I used a white eye crayon, as I usually do, on my bottom water line, this really pushes the look and makes your eyes pop and look huge!

I finished the look with my foundation, concealer, and pressed powder to make my skin look pale and flawless. Then I combed my eyebrows and added some matching colored eyeshadow on them in order to fill them in and shape them. I also set them with clear eyebrow gel, which is nice when I don’t want them going anywhere! lol :p I used a red lip liner in a punch color to fill in my lips and then added a clear gloss on top. The light red shade works great for this look, because it is not too bright so it does not compete with the eyes, but the red is a contrasting color of green so they work in a very interesting and pretty combo!
