Add Some Color – with Fudge!

I’m bored with my hair.  Monthly, my stylist makes my drab brown hair shine with rich mahogany hues and lovely caramel highlights. But more than once we’ve considered just a streak of something crazy.  Pink? Red?  Why not?

Thoroughly embraced by alternative culture, and worn proudly by several of our edgier celebrities, bright hair colors are slowly reaching a whole new level of acceptability. Whether you’re ready to dive in with all over color, or you’re only tempted to get one small streak of pink, we at Beauty of a Site say, “Go for it.”  In fact, we’ll hook you up with the perfect product.

Fudge Paintbox Hair Dye comes in 12 rad colors, with a semi-permanent formula designed to last up to 4o washes.  A great way to test out something edgy, each Paintbox color is 25% off for the month of March, making your experiment safe for your hair and safe for your wallet!

Sweeten Your Day with a Little Bit of Fruit!

Sweeten Your Day with a Little Bit of Fruit!I’ve always been told that eating an apple will wake you up much faster than a cup of coffee. Whether that’s true or not, nothing’s more of a pick me up than a fresh orange in the middle of the afternoon! What is it about fruit that’s so exciting?

We’re not quite sure about the specifics, but we know that when we’re suffering from mid-afternoon laziness, fruit is the perfect summer-y pick me up. Here’s some tips for getting some fruit-y wonderfulness into your routine:

  • Toss a lemon in with your water.  Not only will the little citrus improve taste, but your water bottle looks so much sunnier!
  • Wear a bright fruity nail polish shade on your toes.  When you slip off your heels in the afternoon, you can enjoy your OPI Banana Bandana pedicure!
  • Add a cherry red accessory to classic black clothes or the perfect orange accent.  Those bright, fruity shades can be truly chic- and so fun!
  • Snack on grapes at your desk.  Easy clean-up, easy to eat and necessitates no quick swallowing when the phone rings!
  • Throw on some fruity lip balm.  Agatha Ruiz’ Tutti Fruity is the perfect pick-me-up.
  • Wear a fruity lotion on your hands that is fun enough to give your cubicle, car or bathroom a little extra flavor, but not overpowering to your coworkers, dentist or students.  We suggest California Mango Natural Lotion.  Mmmm.

Orange You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana?

Knock their socks off and rock out like Agyness Deyn! Brights are making a comeback this spring –  are you ready to give it a try? Why not take a stab at wearing some orangey lipsticks?

Lip products labeled with descriptors like coral, peach, or papaya are usually a good indicator that they are orange/yellow based colors. Wondering if you can pull it off? Try using a pink lip liner first – we recommend Bed Head Cancun Crush Lip Liner. Then apply your orange lipstick to only the center of your lips. Finally, apply a pink lip gloss across both the top and bottom lips for a uniquely fresh and temptingly kissable pout! Looking for the right color combo?
