It's freebie time! I don't know about anyone else, but I love
going to my mailbox to see what freebies are there. Lately I've
been receiving a lot of K-Cup coffee offers I signed up for
about 6 weeks ago. Not just one K-Cup
either, they're four packs! Have you scored any of
the freebies offered in the Weekly Round-Up?
There are some free beauty products this week. You can get a free
samples of St.Ive's Blemish Control Apricot Scrub. Just upload a
photo and follow instructions to create a poster and then
submit it to get your sample. Dark & Lovely is offering a free
sample of Anit-Reversion Cream Serum.
I'm no fashionista- my wardrobe is typically some variation of a nice blouse with pants tucked into boots- or a belted skirt and cardigan. My hair? That's something else entirely. All my life, I've had to deal with frizzy, curly hair, trying to whip it into something manageable and slightly presentable. Regardless of my outfit choice of the day, if my hair looks good, I'm likely to be in a similar mood.
I'll admit it- I've tortured my hair in the past. A natural brunette, I've endured bi-monthly bleaching sessions at the salon for months, to make my coif a platinum blonde. There's only so much your hair can take before it rebels though, so I went back to brunette, where I battled frizz with flat irons and finally underwent a Brazilian Blowout. For only $300, I had sleek hair for three months. For those of you not familiar with this treatment, the stylist applies a chemical to your hair before sealing it with heat. The Brazilian Blowout removes all frizz, so your hair looks stick straight after drying. Of course, you're literally bathing your hair in chemicals, and recently it has come to light that the treatment contains formaldehyde (the cancer-causing ingredient used as a preserving agent). No thanks.

It's only January, but I'm already wondering what the beauty trends will be this throughout this year.

These are a few of my favorite looks for 2012 that are fun, cheap and easy to recreate:
