2 Easy Denim Styles to Try This Fall

Well, I had a consult for tattoo removal today and I’m going to do it!

I have two small tattoos, one on my ankle and one on my toe, that I’ve been tired of for years and years. I’m finally ready to start the long process of getting them removed. The technician told me to expect it to take about 6-10 sessions, spaced out about every 2 months. The actual procedure itself is very fast, but there is no numbing and it feels similar to bacon grease getting splattered on you. I’m dreading the first session but I’m motivated to get these tattoos off my body!

Did you have a good week? I can barely handle all the holiday decor that is out in stores already. It’s like the shelves are mixed with Halloween candy and Christmas trees.

I shared a ponytail tip on Instagram, click here to watch, and have a cream eyeshadow demo coming to YouTube next week!

My husband had laser tattoo removal and it definitely works. He’s on his tenth session and the very large tattoo he had on his forearm is nearly gone. Not much pain but it gets red and inflamed looking right after a session and he uses ointment and covers it for a few days. Good luck!

What kind of mascara do you have on? I am looking for a good mascara.
