Getting Organized for 2014

Wow where did the year go? It's that time again time to set goals, do vision boards, and get organized. I just wanted to share with you all the awesome containers I saw at the dollar store.  I went in today and saw this awesome display with a great variety for only one dollar. Just in time for the new year. Go check out your local dollar store to see if they have them and get organized!

Beyonce's Surprise Album

So I haven't honestly purchased a full album in FOREVER and then at midnight the Beyonce/ Beyhive Buzz started regarding her surprise album dropping. 

As a dance teacher I'm ALWAYS looking for great music so I figured I can trust Beyonce to deliver. So I went to iTunes and listen to every song first. Honestly at first I had a look on my face like, "what has happened to Beyonce" only a couple of songs caught my attention after only listening to the sample. Then I realized they provided video snippets for every song. I watched every video snippet and  was completely sold after that for several reasons 1) I admired her work ethic and that each video was different and visually stunning. 2) The songs made more sense and were more Beyonce than I realized! Needless to say I purchased the full visual album for only 15.99 :) Oh yea AND she had a clean version so I can teach something to my kid and teen dancers. Way to go Beyonce!!! 

So I have to share what I learned from Beyonce's release of this visual album as an entrepreneur. I was so inspired!

 1) trust your gut 
 2) take risk
 3) go against the grain 
 4) do you 
 5) create honest work

Thanks for the inspiration now I really can't wait for her to rock one of my Don't Be Shady Be Cool Tshirts that are available at ! :) 

Album available now on iTunes!

Ways to Clean Your Make Up Brushes Using Household Items

So today I decided to clean my Make-Up brushes by using a different method. I normally clean my brushes using extra virgin olive oil and Dawn's antibacterial dish soap! Thanks to Lingywashere I discovered a new way that might be even cheaper. All you need is rubbing alcohol and Pears Transparent soap from the dollar store (or any soap for that matter). I love this method as well! My thoughts extra virgin olive oil method and Dish soap is a great way to clean, disinfected, and condition your brushes. The Soap and alcohol is a GREAT way to also clean and disinfect your brushes.  I like that with the soap method you can hold the soap in your hand and massage the brush on the soap until it's clean.  Either way these are GREAT and Cheap ways to clean your makeup brushes using household items. Let me know which method works for you and check out a video below using the soap method!
