10 Pinterest Beauty Hacks That ACTUALLY Work!

Let's face it, we have all attempted at least a few Pinterest hacks that had a disastrous end! For some reason when scrolling through Pinterest, some wild spark of inspiration hits me, and I suddenly feel like I can do anything.

Sometimes, even the twisted up-do hair style that has 24 steps seems totally plausible to me when I'm Pinterest crazed! Pinterest can be misleading, but can also lead you to some of the best discoveries! Here is a list of some of my favorite beauty hacks that return great results! I have tested all of these, and they actually work!!

1. Gelatin and Milk Blackhead Remover!

Ok, if you have bad blackheads then this is for you! This is the most simple and effective way to remove blackheads (plus it is super fun to remove after it dries)! Warning: this peel off remover has a terrible scent, but the results are definitely worth it! I also made my Dad do this on his blackheads, and wow, what a difference!

2. Quickest and Fullest Curls Ever!

I am so lazy when it comes to my hair, but this look takes almost no time and leaves my hair with tons of bounce! I have very long hair, so curling my hair used to take me forever until I found this! Just throw your hair into a high ponytail and curl small or large sections, then take your hair out of the ponytail and shake the curls out a bit! This is now the only way that I curl my hair. Absolutely life changing!

3. Nail Polish Mess, No Problem!

Did you drop the nail polish bottle on the floor and spill paint everywhere? Me too! The next time this happens just grab some sugar and pour it all over the accident. The nail polish will clump up, and then can be swept up effortlessly! I was so shocked that this actually worked!

4. Chic Newspaper Nails!

I have tried tons of nail ideas from Pinterest, including the marble nails, and ombré nails, but these newspaper nails actually work! This manicure is so easy to do, but looks so complex. All you need is a light nail color (base color), some newspaper clippings, and rubbing alcohol! This is easy enough for someone without much nail talent to do too.

5. Thicker Lashes in Only One Minute!

If you want your lashes to look instantly thicker and longer, then try this tip! Before applying mascara use a spare mascara wand with some translucent or baby powder, and coat the lashes with this! Then move on to your normal mascara routine, and BAM you have the thickest eyelashes ever!

6. Smooth Legs!

Yes, you heard me correctly, silky smooth legs that last for days! I was a skeptic of this hack at first, but now I am a believer! All you have to do is mix some sugar, olive oil, and lemon juice together and exfoliate your legs with it! Then you shave your legs, and repeat this process! This removes dead skin and makes all those little tiny hairs on your legs pop up so you can shave them! This silkiness lasts for days!

7. Cold Spoon Hack!

During allergy season my eyes and sometimes nose can get very swollen, and this trick reduces the effects of my allergies! When i wake up I put a spoon into the freezer and leave it there until i get ready! Then I will wash my face and moisturize, and I grab the cold spoon and press it down on my under eye area! This takes away most or all puffiness, and is great on dark circles too!

8. How to Fix a Crushed Powder Product!

Dropped your favorite blush? Cracked your go-to eyeshadow? No fear, rubbing alcohol is here to fix it! Just add a couple tablespoons and mix, next smooth over the top of the product with a spoon, then let the product dry overnight!

9. Coffee Filter Oil Blotting!

Oil blotting sheets can be expensive, but this hack does the same job for way less! Just use some regular coffee filters as oil blotting sheets, and it can work wonders!

10. Coconut Oil Hair Repair!

After your hair is damp from the shower, just work some coconut oil into the hair, focusing on the ends.Then, put your hair up and secure with a clip or shower cap. After about 20-30 minutes rinse it out, and enjoy silky hair! P.S.: This stuff can be difficult to rinse out, so if you have any trouble just try to shampoo it out! This can also be mixed with olive oil!

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning. You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret. So here are 20 tattoos where you can't go wrong. Here are 20 small tattoos with big meanings. (But don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!).

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.



2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."



3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.



4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."



5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."



6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."



8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)



9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.



10. The Greek word “Meraki” means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.



11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.



13. “Lux in tenebris” means “light in darkness.”

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora” is translated literally as “Towards greater things.” It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.



16. A glyphs means “explore.” It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."



18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower’s first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

3 Ways My $400 hairdryer changed my life

Money can't buy happiness, but it sure did buy me confidence.

I am going to start out by saying, this is not an ad for the Dyson hair-dryer. This year for Christmas, I was gifted with a Dyson hair dryer - you know, the ones that are $400 and created by that vacuum company. Anyways, when I opened it, I was shocked and a little bit annoyed. I asked myself, "Why do I need such an expensive hair dryer? Won't my $30 target hairdryer suffice?" Well, it turns out, this hair dryer changed me. Now before you go judging me or thinking I am a shallow person, I want you to continue reading as to why and how this blow-dryer did so much for me.

Here are a few things that I gained just from this silly blow-dryer...

1. Confidence

Not only did I like the way the blow-dryer made my hair look, but it also gave me something to look forward to doing in the morning. I would set out 10 extra minutes every morning to blow out my hair to my own liking. By doing that, I was able to style my hair and overall improve my appearance. With that, I became a more confident person. Studies show, that when you look good, you feel even better. So for me, taking ten extra minutes to boost-up my daily confidence was a no-brainer.

2. Maturity

$400 is not really something anyone should just throw around, no matter how much money you do or don't have, so when I was gifted the expensive blow-dryer, I promised myself that I would take care of it. By taking care of my "big girl toy," I built up some maturity. I don't just throw it in my suitcase when I travel. It sounds weird to even be writing, but by having this expensive toy, I felt myself grow up a little bit.

3. Daily excitement

I began to have something to look forward to every single day. I am someone who loves to spend time getting ready for any type of event.

I know this entire thing just sounds like I value expensive things - but that is far from my point.

My point for this article is that it is so important to do things for yourself. Whether that be taking an hour of your day to read a book, buying a new dress just because, or in my case, having an expensive blow-dryer. It is crucial in this social media day and age to take time away from your phone and focus on yourself.

I constantly find myself scrolling through social media and comparing myself to various different people. This in return has heightened my anxiety. I started to take minutes away and attention away from my phone and do more things for myself. My favorite thing to do for myself is involving my $400 hair-dryer. I hope whoever is reading this takes a second and decides a new thing that they will do for themselves today.
