Some Pillow Talk with @brandonliberati

23 Sep

PILLOW LOCK(s)

Are frayed ends leaving you broken hair-ted? Let’s talk about silks! A silk pillow case can reduce split ends, bed head, skin irritations and leave both your hair and skin looking orgasmic! This is because it helps you retain moisture. It has the lowest absorption rate of any fabric, especially cotton. And that means less products like moisturizers and leave-in conditioners that you need to apply on your body. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic with a natural resistance to dust mites, fungus and molds. And is made of common amino acids found in your hair and skin. Which means less wrinkles… ON YOUR FACE! Plus it’s machine washable, so tell me just one thing before you go… was it good for you?

WET BAR

If you are always traveling to other far away kingdoms and lands, it is easy to forget some of your magical product potions!  If your shape is shifting into an unrecognizable animal, this  mystic trick will transform your hair back into the divine “do” it was born to be! Just “raise the bar”… a wet bar of soap!  Use it to sculpt and style! Men also love the matte finish it gives their strapping styles.  Now that’s a look you can wear…woof!

Pearly whites

One of the biggest signs of aging is teeth discoloration, you will literally look years younger to others just by whitening your teeth. I am told all of the time how white and bright my smile is and yours can be too just by this simple home made remedy. I avoid puting traditional harsh chemicals in my mouth that are used for teeth bleaching. We all know about baking soda and salt, or baking soda and hydrogen peroxide mixtures for whitening, but this one works just as great. Orange Peels and Bay Leaves! That’s it! Make sure you dry the orange peels out ( vitamin c can be harsh on your teeth), and the bay leaves should be dried and crushed finely. Put the bay leaves on the white part of the orange rind and gently rub against your chops. The combo of these will leave your smile sparkling. Caution- too much teeth brightening, even if it’s home made, can be harmful to your enamel.

 Anyone who know me knows that I love a great bag! I wanted to share this HIPP designer with you and encourage you to support these creative small business owners that are bringing us amazing products that have heart and soul. HIPP & Kirk founder and designer Lauren Milroy’s journey is hardly typical. Born and raised in California, she first studied mechanical engineering and worked in the aerospace industry before attending Stanford University’s graduate program in Product Design. She honed her skills as a designer at an outdoor gear company, creating bags and researching color trends. On her time off she started her blog, Hippanonymous, where she shared her favorite finds in design, fashion, cocktails and travel. Her designs are heritage classics with a twist of color. They are inspired by the sunkissed glamour of Manhattan Beach, where the designer once lived, and by L.A’s laid-back, fun loving lifestyle – from barbecues to rooftop parties and Bikram sessions. Lauren prototypes new designs from her home studio using a 40-year-old industrial sewing machine. All her bags are manufactured in California using high-quality canvas and metal hardware. They are made to last a lifetime. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! To order  for the holidays or just for yourself go to http://hippandkirk.com. Head into this New Year with style!

PAWFECTION

Grimy grippers are just plain gross. Clean, white nails are attractive no matter what gender you are! This tip will whiten and buff those pincers. Men, try adding this to your regimen when you cut your nails (hands AND feet!). This will also remove any yellow discoloration caused by nail polish ladies.  Gently scrub them with toothpaste and a recycled, soft toothbrush or buffer. Gentle men, don’t overdue it. Do not use gel, use paste!  Now add a few drops of lemon juice and your clutches will come alive, instead of  looking dead as  door NAILS!

(PRE)TEND SKIN

Are you tired of faking flawless skin? Shaving shouldn’t leave you with road rash. This is your recipe for baby bottom realness. A homemade, good-for-you, version of an expensive and harsh product called Tend Skin. A product used for getting rid of ingrown hairs and razor burn. All you need is a clean, empty glass bottle, ½ cup rubbing alcohol (70% kind),1 teaspoon witch hazel and 20 uncoated aspirin! Mix everything up in your container. After you shave you just rub your concoction on the area and let it soak in. Make sure to shake well before each use on your face, legs, underarms, bikini line or wherever you decorticate.  Because it’s natural, the mix should last about a week. If it starts to smell like funk, it’s time to junk and make a new batch. Don’t you just love being comfortable in your own skin!
