Jennifer Lawrence Everyday Hairstyle

Jennifer Lawrence is starring in the upcoming movie: The Hunger Games (out on March 23). 
Here is a how-to on achieving Jennifer's effortless beachy waves. 

 Beachy Waves 

1. When hair is still wet, apply a texturing spray. 
2. Let hair dry or blow try. (Works better drying naturally)
3. Take a wand and curl any pieces that need to have added waves. 
4. Spray with a seasalt spray. 

Hope you enjoyed! Will you be seeing the movie?

February Favorites!

It's already March- so crazy! February went by so fast, and the year is slipping already. I wanted to share my February favorites because I have some new ones! 

 Maybelline One by One Volume Express
I just got this new mascara recently and I love it! It makes my lashes dark, and long! Ever since I started wearing this I have gotten compliments daily on how long and thick my lashes look. It is not clumpy whatsoever and the waterproof version that I have has kept its hydro-proof promise! I like this mascara over LashBlast only because it has a darker formula, and the brush is easier to get the inside corner lashes. 

Secret Wonderland Body Mist from Bath & Body Works
I received this in a giveaway. I love the scent! It's a mix of strawberry and jasmine. It has a fruity/floraly scent without over doing anything. This is definitely not a "airy" scent, but I recommended to check it out or try out the matching lotion. 

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm
I have been loving Burt's Bees lip products lately. I have the lip balm, and tinted lip balms and adore them both. The regular lip balm is smooth, nourishing, and feels cool and minty on your lips. The tinted lip balm glides on really well, and the color shows.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I have finally gotten around to reading the Hunger Games, and fell in love with it! It is very addicting. I can't wait to read the rest of the series and see the movie (coming out this month!). I have an entire blog post about The Hunger Games which you can view here.

Quaker Oats Lightly Salted Rice Cakes
I have started eating rice cakes lately. I find that they are a great substitution for bread (in some cases) and still taste good. I like to top them with peanut butter (add some bananas/apples), jelly, or salsa. They are also nice to crumble up and use them in recipes. Quaker Oats has several different flavors as well including Apples and Cinnamon, Caramel Corn, Chocolate, White Cheddar, and Butter Popped Corn. I haven't tried all of them, but I hope to soon. 

What's your February favorites? Hope you enjoyed! TGIF! XO Charlotte

Fruity Smoothie Recipe!

Hey Everyone! I've been lately making smoothies for snacks or breakfast, and I thought I would share one that I really like! 

Ingredients (makes 1 serving) 

6-8 ice cubes 
1/2 banana
1-2 scoops cottage cheese* 
2 scoops low calorie/low sugar jam (whatever flavor you prefer) 
1/4 cup water 
additional: toss in some fresh or frozen berries if you'd like! 

*I promise you, you cannot taste the cottage cheese! Ever since I tried using it, I loved it. It makes the smoothies thicker and creamier. I used to never make consistent smoothies until using this ingredient. I definitely recommend it. Plus: it adds a great source of calcium! 

This recipe is great for a snack, or part of breakfast. You can easily add protein powder to it for a pre/post workout snack. The smoothie is very healthy, and tastes delish! 
Enjoy! XO Charlotte
