Bless Our Belles & Beaus in Chile

Today BSB would like to bless the 33 miners in Chile and their families. We pray they will be rescued as soon as possible. Live everyday like it is your last and never take for granted the blessings you DO have.

May all God's angels watch over you.....

Christ Jesus,
when all is darkness
and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of Your presence,
Your love, and Your strength.
Help us to have perfect trust
in Your protecting love
and strengthening power,
so that nothing may frighten or worry us,
for, living close to You,
we shall see Your hand,
Your purpose, Your will through all things.

Trend Check: Two Finger Rings

We love the 80's & the two finger rings to match!!! What can I say, a girl can give in to some of the trends right? Our fav is Lauren's monogrammed ring...small and dainty, yet HOT all the same. Pick your poison belles, you can rock the ring but a matching Addidas track suit might be a bit much. Smooches:)

Tresemme Fresh Start Dry's a Keeper!

Whisk the oilies away with this super inexpensive dry shampoo from Tresemme! We've tried lots of high price dry shampoos (that shall remain nameless) and this one is just a effective as the top name brands, and it has a so-fresh-and-so-clean-scent. Prices may vary in different areas, but we found it on-line at for only $3.49!

Note: Especially handy for bang-wearers! Bangs tend to get oily quickly because the hair rests on your face. Tresemme will have you looking salon fresh in no time!

Kenra Platinum Sulfate-Free Shampoo & Moisturizing Conditioner

Sulfate-free shampoos are popping up in many of our favorite brands. So what makes them so special you ask? Sulfates are lathering agents that are found in dishwashing detergents, laundry detergents, shower gels and shampoos. Sodium lauryl sulfate is the most common surfectant found in all of the above. The detergent overstrips the hair of natural oil and fades hair color.
Kenra Platinum Sulfate-free shampoo for thick/coarse hair is an ultra rich shampoo that gently cleanses hair without over-stripping. It has a patented color-fade protector as well as hydrolyzed wheat and silk proteins to strengthen and moisturize hair.
Kenra's sulfate-free shampoo has been a top pick on many natural hair sites. Has anyone tried sulfate-free shampoos? Give us your picks!
