Dwellbling Moissanite Jewelry For Mother's Day

 

Dwellbling Moissanite Jewelry For Mother's Day


Find a statement-making ring and other moissanite jewelry for the woman who does it all this Mother's Day!

Selecting my mom a Mother's Day gift can sometimes be challenging as I always like to change it up. This year, I am giving her something different a  925 Sterling Silver Moissanite Ring from Dwellbing.

Whether it's a moissanite ring or other beautiful jewelry to mark the Mother's Day moment, Dwellbing has some incredible designs in their moissanite collection that are affordable.

I would never be able to afford to purchase my mom a diamond as large as the moissanite gems are, and do they look as gorgeous. But what the heck is a moissanite gem?

What The Heck Is A Moissanite Gem
Moissanite is an engineered gem created to give the illusion of similarity to diamonds, with its qualities decided by the four c's. The four Cs are Carat, Color, Clarity, and Cut.

The Difference Between A Diamond And A Moissanite By Barbies Beauty Bits

The Difference Between A Diamond And A Moissanite

Hardness

  • Diamonds are the hardest known mineral and receive a ten on the Mohs Scale of Hardness.
  • Moissanite is around 9.25, so it is suitable for everyday wear.

Brilliance

  • Moissanites exhibit a different kind of brilliance than diamonds do, as their faceting pattern is different.
  • Diamonds reflect light in three different ways; moissanite has a higher refractive index.

Color

  • Moissanites are labeled as "colorless."
  • Diamonds have a natural color resulting in a dazzling, bright white appearance.

Moissanites Are Responsibly Sourced
Because they are engineered in controlled environments, there is no mining involved.  Compared with natural diamonds, the lab-created moissanite has a smaller carbon footprint and less environmental impact, making them responsibly sourced.

Price Of Moissanite Is Cheaper Than A Diamond
The most significant difference is the price. Moissanite is less expensive per carat. Hence allowing me to purchase my mom a gorgeous ring without having to take out a loan.

Top DIY At-Home Beauty Tips On The Web

Top DIY At-Home Beauty Tips On The Web By Barbies Beauty Bits

Because of the pandemic more have resorted to some at-home beauty treatments for a little TLC for our skin, hair, and body. And the best part is you can do some of these without having to go out and purchase beauty products, but instead use some goodies from your pantry with this round up of some of the top DIY at-home beauty tips on the web.

For fun we had someone scour the web for us to put together this list of DIY at home beauty tips. Some of these I've tried, some I have not. I am just sharing this for fun, so please do your research.

From a banana hair treatment to a coffee body scrub, and a dash of coconut for luscious lashes we’ve got your whole body covered.

CBD Oil

More and more people are turning to CBD oil as a treatment for a variety of medical conditions ranging from anxiety, depression, skin conditions, sleep disorders, chronic pain and more. There are some great capsules and more that are worth taking a look at.  https://cbdfx.com/collections/cbd-hemp-capsules/

Make sure to use high-quality CBD oil extracted using chemical-free processes. You can take a look at https://cbdfx.com/cbd-extraction-process/ to know more about premium CBD brands and their extraction processes. 

DIY treatments for acne By Barbies Beauty Bits

Turn To Your Eye Drops To Ease The Breakout
Nothing like waking up to an unwanted guest on your face... A pimple. One popular DIY tip is to zap that zit with some eye drops.

Simply soak a piece of cotton or a cotton pad in eye drops and place it in the freezer for about 5 minutes. Dab this cotton on the pimple, and you will notice the redness and swelling reduce.

Turmeric Face Mask
This is one I have tried as Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and is great at soothing and calming. And a bonus is it also defends skin against damaging free radicals that cause premature skin aging.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon of organic honey (anti-inflammatory and antibacterial to hydrate, heal and soothe)
  • 1 tablespoon of greek natural yogurt (fights fine lines and moisturizes) 

Beauty Benefits Of Baking Soda By Barbies Beauty Bits

Baking Soda Works Miracles For Ingrown Hair
Ingrown hair is a common problem after shaving. It can ruin the texture and cause dullness of the skin. You can use a simple body scrub prepared with baking soda to get rid of this issue.

In a small bowl, add about one tablespoon of baking soda, one tablespoon of water, and one tablespoon of ground oatmeal. Mix this into a paste and spread it on the skin evenly. Rinse the paste after 5 minutes by scrubbing to achieve smooth and supple skin.

Exfoliation Is The Key To Healthy Skin
Removing the dead skin debris that forms on the top layer is crucial to improving skin texture, reducing pore size, and eliminating the risk of breakouts and excess dryness.

You can choose from chemical exfoliators like BHA, AHA, or other enzyme-based formulas. They are known to cleanse the skin and remove dirt and debris from the pores to increase glow. You can also use homemade scrubs or exfoliants such as sugar and olive oil for excellent results.

Try Almond Oil For Under Eye Bags
Under-eye bags or puffiness is a common problem that could make you look tired. Massage a few drops of pure almond oil under the eye before going to bed. It will help in toning the skin to give a healthy and refreshed look.

Best DIY Hair Masks By Barbies Beauty Bits

Beat Up A Banana For Shiny Hair
A banana hair mask can lock in the necessary moisture to control frizz, dryness, and dullness of the hair.

Add one mashed banana, one tablespoon honey, one egg, and ½ glass of dark beer to a bowl. Mix into a smooth paste and apply to the hair. Let it rest for about 4 hours and wash off with a mild shampoo. Your hair will feel silky smooth and nourished within a few weeks.

Use Coconut And Lavender Oil For Luscious Lashes
I've used another oil for this, so I am excited to see how the coconut oil and lavender oil can help you achieve thick and long eyelashes. Especially if the lavender is scented? Not sure about that near the eye. 

Add ½ teaspoon of coconut oil and four drops of lavender oil to a small bowl. Dip a Q-tip in this mixture and apply it to the lashes before going to bed to get fabulous results.

Coffee Body Scrub
There is a great brand I love that has an amazing coconut coffee body scrub. Coffee grounds are a great exfoliant in homemade beauty scrubs. The grounds work to gently remove dead skin cells, which helps to rejuvenate and boost circulation.

Choose fine grounds, as the coarse kind can be too harsh for sensitive or delicate skin, and mix with 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 a cup melted coconut oil and mix.

Foot scrub made with listerine By Barbies Beauty Bits

Listerine And Apple Cider Vinegar Foot Soak
What?  We ran across this Listerine and vinegar foot soak idea, I figured we'd share this too!  I know vinegar is great for a lot of aliments so it was an interesting share

To start, add one part original Listerine, one part vinegar, and two cups of warm water to a foot bath big enough to fit two feet.

So there you have it, so great DIY at home beauty tips. Do you have any DIY beauty tips that you love? Any of these sound interesting? Let me know by commenting below!

The Best Ways To Get Your Body Summer Ready

 

he Best Ways To Get Your Body Summer Ready By Barbies Beauty Bits

The summer is almost here, and I do not know about you but I need to get my body summer-ready, especially because of this darn pandemic. It’s about time to undo the shackles of these past 14 months and enjoy ourselves at the pool or in the surf. But do you feel comfortable enough to wear that bathing suit or summer attire? If you feel you need to get your body ready for summer, I've put some tips together for you.

The good news is there’s still plenty of time to sort it out. You can put together a training plan combined with a healthier lifestyle. Or you can opt for a more quick-fire method, such as body sculpting. Body Sculpting is the latest in weight loss technology and doesn’t require much effort at all. Find out more in the article below. 

Creating A Baseline Weight-loss Plan
If you want to go the traditional route to "Getting Your Body Summer Ready" then it’s time to get training. A combination of training and eating healthy can get you going in the right direction, with the correct mindset. As to maintain a certain weight, whatever that number you have to create a lifestyle and stick to it. Diet fads do not work. Furthermore, the word diet sets us up for failure as well, as this needs to be a lifetime change, not a quickie.

One way to get started is by establishing a baseline. This starting position will act as your measuring stick to help you keep track of results and motivate you to go the distance. In a diary, make a note of your starting body weight, body fat, workouts, the reps, miles you racked up, and do not forget to include a food diary, filled with healthy foods as well. Always think calories in calories out and work towards your goals.

Embrace Fasting
When people aim to get that summer body, they usually think about changing their eating habits. Obviously, nutrition plays a key role in your fitness regime and its potential success. But don’t think you abandon all your favorite food entirely when putting a meal plan together. A popular alternative is intermittent fasting.

Intermittent fasting works very well to reduce your weight and support muscle growth and toning. The 16/8 method is a popular form of the diet. With this approach, you fast for 16 hours and eat moderately for eight. This allows your body to adjust to periods without food and helps burn more calories.

Train Smart For Weight Loss This Summer  By Barbies Beauty Bits

Train Smart For Weight Loss This Summer
There are alternative ways to achieve the summer-ready body without daily workouts. We’ll cover these in the next section. But if you’re a traditionalist, or you want that feel-good factor to go with your new body, then make space every day for a bit of strength training.

Your summer body workout doesn’t have to be intense every day but do try to train smart. That means you should work for different muscle groups on different days so that you get a full-body workout by the week’s end. With this approach, you will avoid that weight loss plateau.

Body Sculpting And Fat Removal With truSculpt By Barbies Beauty Bits

Body Sculpting And Fat Removal With truSculpt
There are times that no matter how much you diet or workout, there are always problem areas where you can't see to get rid of that unwanted fat. Those stubborn areas of the body can be resistant to diet and exercise! So what is a solution? Body Sculpting, with truSculpt® iD Body Contouring. A revolutionary, non-surgical, body sculpting and fat removal treatment designed to help you achieve your ideal summer body.

The body sculpting method is a fast body sculpting and fat removal method approved by the FSA. It uses non-invasive fat removal and radiofrequency laser energy (rf energy) to eliminate fat cells to permanently banish at least 24% of stubborn fat cells in each session to that specific treatment area.

Treatment time is fast with truSculpt, some can even see results after each session.

Best green superfood supplement by barbies beauty bits

Juice It Up
Speaking of healthy eating, how can you make sure you’re getting enough vitamins and nutrients into your diet while keeping the calorie count down? One way is definitely the supplement route, but taking supplements isn’t always the healthiest option for your body.

A great alternative is juicing and this worked well with the fasting diet approach as well; they have very few calories and pack a punch when it comes to vitamins and nutrients. During your eight-hour eating period, have a juice drink made of apples, carrots, beetroots, and peeled lemon to give your vitamin A levels and massive one up.

The downside to this is juicing can be really expensive. I know I would cringe over the prices at the juice bar, but the truth is it is just as costly at home. A great alternative without juicing, shopping, or blending is with Lady Boss, Greens Superfood Powder that contains ingredients from 35 superfoods and the best part is it tastes like apple pie, it really does!

Red Light Therapy At Home
One solution I've found highly effective to help reduce fat in my stomach is red light for fat loss. I had terrific results in the past with this by going to a physician. But with the pandemic, I needed a more at-home approach to red light therapy.

This is where the Lipo Wrap from Nushape comes into play, which offers the same "Red-Light Phototherapy Technology" used in a professional med-spa and weight loss clinics, but in a portable belt, you can use from the comfort of your home for a fraction of the cost in just as little as 15 minutes.

Yoga for weight loss By Barbies Beauty Bits

Embrace Yoga
Sometimes achieving that much-desired summer body is as much about the mind as it is about the body. Yoga can help you out with this. Yoga isn’t just a set of poses you do in the morning; it’s also a lifestyle that incorporates meditation, healthy eating, and mindful living. Yoga actually means “union with the divine” in the ancient Sanskrit language, so there’s that.

A yoga lifestyle can help you to lose weight fast and achieve a beach body because it puts you in the mode of healthy living and regular exercise. It’s a lifestyle really, so you have to live it. The more you do, the faster the weight will fall off, and you get to look the same way you feel. 

Replace Prepackaged Foods For Healthy Proteins
The body is kind of a learning machine; right, it starts to learn what you put into it through the various digestion processes. It then quickly starts to expect these inputs and knows what to do with any available nutrients. If it needs these nutrients, it starts to crave those things. If you feed your body sodium enriched repacked food or unhealthy takeouts, guess what? That’s what you’re going to crave.

It might be tough at first but getting rid of those foods is the best way to reach your beach body goals as quickly as possible. A great alternative is to look for foods high in protein.

Our body burns more calories digesting protein than carbs. More importantly, protein also helps you to stay full longer, as the biggest reason for failing a diet is feeling like you are hungry all the time! But not when you have a diet high in protein, combined with a good balance of greens, and minimal carbohydrates, you should not feel hungry. Oh, and do not forget about portion sizes as a 16-ounce steak, while protein is not included!

Tips for portion size:

  •     Eat from small plates (smaller plates = smaller portions)
  •     Calculate your calories with a nutrition app
  •     Always measure your portions
  •     If you are eating out. Split a meal or as soon as you get the meal place half of it in a box.
