Lauren's Hourglass

Occasionally we'll share a  reader submission and today we have a piece contributed by Lauren. She sent in this cool hourglass:


Lauren explains:
 "I decided on an hourglass after wanting something to represent living your life to the fullest and realizing time is precious. After thinking and going through all the quotes I could find I decided I would get an hourglass to represent it all. Paul Anthony Dobleman at Spider Murphy's Tattoo in San Rafael, CA is a genius. He has done about 75% of my tattoos and he took my idea and ran with it. Exactly what I wanted. Couldn't be happier! The tattoo is located on my left rib cage."
Thanks to Lauren for sharing her timely tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

Skin care regimen: Pai avocado and jojoba hydrating day cream




OMG! no make up!!
Some of you have been asking about my skin. I've had some lovely comments about it so thank you! And thank you mac! Lol
I have relatively clear skin I have the odd breakout when it's that time of the month. I always wear foundation ALWAYS! But you do need a good base to start with.



My skin care regimen is pretty basic
I wash my face with simple liquid soap and use toning facial wipes am and pm
To moisterise my skin I have started using pai's avocado and jojoba hydrating day cream avacodo oil is great for black skin. I put it on under my foundation so it's light but also very moisterising and thankfully it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. I'm getting more and more into natural products but some natural companies either aren't as natural or organic as they claim or the product is completely natural but doesn't work! Pai is certified organic so no nasties! Like alcohol or parabens.


"Avocado oil is excellent at hydrating skin and Jojoba helps to improve suppleness. Thistle oil reduces open pores and promotes skin absorption."







foundation: mac mineralize foundation (NW45) lipstick: mac (tanarama) blush: sleek (coral)

Anthony's Phenomenal Marilyn Monroe Portrait

 Without question, Marilyn Monroe has appeared more on Tattoosday than any other celebrity, living or dead. You'd think I'd get tired of seeing her in ink, but I never do. Probably because there are artists out there doing this:


This portrait is on the left leg of Anthony, a photographer I met on Penn Plaza a couple weeks ago. The work is based on this famous photograph:


Anthony credited the artist as Horacio Martinez, at Golden Eagle Tattoo in Santa Barbara, California. The detail in the piece is really spectacular:


When I asked why he chose to ink the legendary actress on his leg, he said, "I was in photo school at the time and we were doing a lot of Hollywood glamor stuff and it was just kind of, on a whim. Why not?"

The piece is two years old and took only three and a half hours for Horacio to complete.

To see all the Marilyn Monroe work that has appeared on Tattoosday, click here. You can also see Anthony's work as a photographer on Tumblr here, or you can visit his website here.

Thanks to Anthony for sharing this incredible tattoo with us here on Tattoosday!

tried and tested : phillip kingsley Elasticizer extreme


hairband £3.00


Elasticizer Extreme
£25.00

since i've coloured my hair i have noticed that it has been looking quite dry and brittle, i've   been  using alot more oils in my hair to make up for the dryness. 
so i was thrilled to be sent Elasticizer Extreme from Phillip Kingsley

Elasticizer Extreme is aimed at people with very porous hair that is chemically processed or coloured. it's a pre-shampoo treatment


"Elasticizer should be applied in small sections to damp hair from mid lengths to ends. Leave for several minutes, or for full benefit, cover with a shower cap and leave for 20-30 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly and shampoo and condition as normal."

verdict

so far i've used it twice and i'm pretty happy with the results, combined with using the moisture extreme shampoo and conditioner i have noticed my hair is about 40% softer and i'm noticing much less breakage.
i've never treid a pre-shampoo treatment before and it felt like i was doing everything backwards! but the results speak for them selves so i'll be trying it again!

i think this product would be good for transitioners and it will nourish your newly natural hair and stop your relaxed ends breaking off.

again as a higher end product the Phillip Kingsley line is not cheap £25.00 150mls  but you can purchase a 500mls tub for £51.00 which is much better value for money (200mls free!!)



*i was sent these products free of charge. all opinions on these or any  products are are my own i was not paid to review this product. many thanks to ashley @ purepr
