summer 2014 trend: pineapple

I've been seeing pineapples everywhere! I'm down for a summer piña colada, but these are not the pineapples that you eat. We're talking about pineapple fashion, accessories, art and things for your home. I've been invaded by pineapple dreams so I designed a geometric pineapple this morning!

You can get my geometric pineapple design on shirts, tote bags, coffee mugs, phone cases, clocks, pillows, framed art and more! I love my modern pineapple art, fitting for guys and gals. Here are more pineapples!

7 Reasons to Clean Your Makeup Brushes

My 3rd article for is live! It's called 7 Reasons to Clean Your Makeup Brushes.

I wrote this article for myself. I know that I'm supposed to wash my makeup brushes, but I always forget or find an excuse to do it later. So here's a little tough love to get scared straight to clean those makeup brushes in the regular!

1. It can make your acne reoccur.
I'm almost 40 and I still get zits. Using dirty makeup brushes can create a never-ending cycle of breakouts.

2. It can irritate your skin.
Have you ever used your blush brush and it feels like your getting poked in the face with tiny needles? That's because your brush has old product caked on it. Your cosmetic brushes should feel like a soft cloud on your face.

3. It can give you diseases.
Dirty lip gloss can get you herpes and sharing mascara can give you pinkeye. YUCK!

4. Don't cross-contaminate your brushes.
Having a separate brush for each cosmetic to avoid contamination between them.

5. It can give you the wrong color.
Have you ever put on an eyeshadow and it's not as vibrant as you'd like? That's because your cosmetic brush is dirty.

6. It can trash your cosmetic brushes.
Not cleaning your brushes can destroy them.

7. Don't use your hands.
Dirty makeup brushes are just as bad as using your fingers. The oils on your hands spread bacteria around your face much more easily than brushes.

Do you feel like washing your makeup brushes yet? Or just start over with some new ones? You can get quality professional makeup brushes from 40% off at We're talking $15 for a set of 12 brushes!
