See you soon!

Hello ladies!

Just wanted to let you know I will be taking a break from blogging for 2-3 months
to devote my spare time to a little personal development.

When I’m back, I’ll be able to devote more time to the blog regularly
and provide better content.

I will still be periodically updating my social media pages.
If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me because I’ll still be checking it (lacy@beachblondeblog.com)
Thanks for your support!

Easy Valentine’s Day Eye Look

Step 1: Start with a primed eye, like Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Step 2: Apply an ivory shadow on the lid & under the brow. Then work a taupe contour color into the crease.
Step 3: Apply a purple/brown eye shadow (I used MAC Heritage Rogue Pigment) to the outer-V of the eye, avoiding the inner lid. Blend well.
Step 4: Apply black liner to the upper lid and blend with black eye shadow.
Step 5: Apply your lashes. I used some I bought from kkcenterhk.com
Step 6: Apply black liner to the inner waterline and smudge the purple/brown eye shadow below the waterline.

This is the perfect eye for Valentine’s Day. It’s soft and romantic, while still being dramatic enough for a date night.

If you like this look, be sure to “pin” it!

How I Clip In Hair Extensions | Sweet Extensions Review!

Sweet Extensions are 100% human hair, so it can be curled and styled like your hair. They ship internationally and accept returns within 7 days if hasn’t been opened.

Sara was really great to work with because the first set I received was a bit too platinum blonde for me. She let me return the extensions and select a different shade. I was pleasantly surprised when I received the Sara’s Blonde Highlight shade because it is the perfect match for me right after I tone my hair. I tone my hair after I lighten the roots with Redken EQ Toner in Irish Cream (09NB), in case you were wondering.

Sara had sent me the 160 grams of hair, which is more than enough for me. If you have thinner hair like myself, you may find yourself only wearing a couple wefts and saving all of them for big nights out.

The quality of the actual hair is fantastic. My only issues is with the clips. The one-clip wefts need to be the size of the clip so extras on both sides don’t poke out of your natural hair. I would have also liked a thicker silicone grip on the clip for a more secure fit. 

I have tried Foxy Locks Extensions and another brand from Sally Beauty Supply. While the Sally Beauty Supply extensions were not that amazing, I absolutely love Foxy Locks Extensions. I would definitely compare Sweet Extensions to Foxy Locks Extensions. So far, they are both my favorite. Sweet Extensions offers free shipping in the US for orders over $99, so that may help factor which extensions are a better deal for you, depending upon where you live.

Hey ladies!

I’m the kind of person who gets completely overwhelmed with all of my thoughts, ideas and a to-do list that doesn’t seem to ever get smaller.

It’s vital for me to have a planner with me. I’ve been using a notebook so far this month because my other one is now outdated with the new year.

Here are my favorite planners for 2014! The MNB Diary is my favorite. I “plan” on getting that one. Get it?
