How To Tie A Sarong Part 2

Hello Divas!


Well it is summer time and that means swimwear!!! When you get out of the water and want a little bit of a cover up then you might need to wear a sarong. Last week we learned How To Tie a Strapless Dress Sarong and today we are going to learn how to tie a Halter Style Sarong.


I know some of you ladies are a bit afraid of wearing a sarong because you are not sure how to tie it and not end up looking like a frumpy old lady.

I am going to show you how easy it is in three simple steps:

Step 1: Position the sarong at your back, just under your armpits and bring the edges forward in front of your body.

Step 2: Cross the two ends between your breasts, pulling the material tightly so that you get a snug fit and ensure that your sarong will not fall off.

Step 3: Twist the ends once more and then bring them up around your neck and tie in a knot.

Enjoy walking around in your halter style sarong dress and don't forget to check out last week's post on how to tie a strapless dress sarong so that you have two looks for the beach.

How To Tie A Sarong Part 1

Hello Divas!


Well it is summer time and that means swimwear!!! When you get out of the water and want a little bit of a cover up then you might need to wear a sarong. Today we are going to learn how to tie a Strapless Dress Sarong.


I know some of you ladies are a bit afraid of wearing a sarong because you are not sure how to tie it and not end up looking like a frumpy old lady.

I am going to show you how easy it is in three simple steps:
Step 1: Hold the sarong at your back and bring the front ends together in front of your chest. The back of the sarong should lie just comfortably under your armpits for the best fit.

Step 2: Tie the ends of the sarong overhand once in between your breasts. Adjust the tightness as this is what will keep the sarong on you all day.

Step 3: Tie the ends once more to form a secure knot and fluff the ends so that they look pretty.

Enjoy walking around in your sarong in your strapless dress style. Come back next week for How To Tie A Sarong Part 2, as this will be the halter style of dress.

Review: CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain

Hello Divas!


I am not a big fan of heavy makeup as I prefer the natural, sunkissed look. However, sometimes it is good to make a dramatic statement with a bold pop of color.

I was looking for a lip color that was in between a gloss and a lipstick so that I could have a vibrant color, while not having a heavy look.


I was in Walmart and stumbled on the CoverGirl Outlast Lipstain and I must say that I have fallen in love. The lipstain combines the best of two worlds and then makes it EVEN better.

The lipstain is like a marker for your lips that goes on smooth and pretty. I used in on my lips after completely taking off any residue of anything else. You simply press the applicator tip to your lips and it fills in the color.

It gave me a deep color that did not feel heavy like lipstick or sticky like gloss. The lipstain has a lovely sweet scent and when you press your lips together it renews and refreshes the color.

One word to note is that you need to allow at least ten minutes for the stain to dry and 'set' or it will come off very easily.

Also, it tends to come off with water, such as drinking from a glass or even with licking your lips. I found that it made my tongue the color of the stain so be careful when using.

My advice to you is that you apply at least 20 minutes before you go out and let dry. Then lick your lips a couple of times to get the bit that is going to come off and then reapply. This way you get a true stain that says on much better.

I found this out after experimenting with it a bit so try it out and see if it works for you. If you click the Amazon link above to buy then you get a cheaper price (it cost more at Walmart than online) and I get a referral for you buying through my link...so we BOTH win!!!!

Get Pretty And Long Lashes AND Save Money

Hello Divas!


I recently gave away some mascara (congratulations Ana!!!!) and that got me thinking about how we can save money and still look fabulous.

I read recently that the formula for most mascaras is the same and the difference really lies in the brush. So if you have splurged in the past on an expensive tube of mascara and it all done you can save money by simply reusing the brush in a cheaper tube later on.

IMPORTANT!!!!!!
Be sure to wash and disinfect the brush THOROUGHLY before putting it into the new tube of cheaper mascara because you do not want to raise your odds of getting an infection.

How To Remove A Bandage Painlessly

Hello Divas!


I am sure that you ladies have gotten cuts and scrapes before and you know to cover them up immediately to prevent infection.

But what about when you need to remove the bandage? We all know how much those little things can hurt as they pull and tug at your sensitive skin.

Well here is an easy way to remove your bandage without all the pain.

  • Step 1: Get some baby oil and apply to the edges of the bandage.
  • Step 2: Allow the oil to sit for about one minute
  • Step 3: Slowly peel off the bandage starting from the edges.

The oil helps to dissolve the adhesive on the bandage and lets it slide off your skin easily!!!

I know it works because I have tried it myself with great results. Bonus: the oil also removes that nasty sticky stuff on your skin so there is no bandage mark left on your skin!!!!!

What else do you use baby oil for?
