Sexy and Eatable…Halloween!

OK, so many cats I hear this halloween, so if you haven’t gotten your costume ready yet, think no-cats (unless you’re going to a cat party).

We’ve done nurses, fairytale characters, movie characters, cheerleaders, naughty school girls….. Right, sexy ladies. Not to be a racist, but when I think about halloween costumes for women, it’s either sexy or funny/clever. I’m thinking both together this year.

Food is always great attraction for either women or men. Who would resist sexy food?

Halloween is all about having fun. Let’s be smart and clever, and don’t drink too much. Too little or too much is not good for having fun.

10 Ways to Use Vaseline for Your Beauty

I’ve been hearing about unusual ways to use Vaseline (Petroleum Jelly) for so many things. I regularly use it as skin softener or moisturizer, but other than that, apparently I’ve been missing out a lot! Here are some tips to use Vaseline for your beauty:

FACIAL MOISTURIZER: This is probably the most common way a lot of women know and use for their beauty. Because it’s non-comedogenic, petroleum jelly is perfect for locking in moisture without risking breakouts.

EYEBROW TAMER: Control errant hairs and shape brows by brushing on a tiny dab of petroleum jelly using a toothbrush.

LIP BALM: Use it on your lips for  moisturized lips. Also, during winter apply it on your lips before going to bed to wake up to soft, smooth lips.

EYE MAKEUP REMOVER: Just a dab instantly breaks up the toughest mascaras and waterproof liners, while leaving skin around the eyes moisturized.

NATURAL EYE LASHES LENGTHENER: Petroleum Jelly applied to lashes with a clean lash comb or mascara wand will help moisturize your lashes and help them to appear thicker and healthier. The increased moisture may help stimulate the follicles and help those lashes grow. Not to mention, you can use it instead of mascara for more natural look of longer and thicker lashes.

LUMINIZER: Petroleum jelly can be used on its own as makeup to add a little shine to eyelids cheekbones or lips, creating a surprisingly luxe looking sheen for such an affordable formula.

OVERNIGHT HAND & FOOT SOFTENER: Avoid having to constantly reapply hand lotion throughout the day by slathering your hands and feet in petroleum jelly and wearing socks and gloves to bed. By morning, they’ll be soft and smooth—and will stay that way.

NAIL POLISH HELPER: Before applying polish, trace petroleum jelly over cuticles and the skin around your nails using an eyeliner brush or pointed cotton swab. If you then accidentally paint a little outside the lines you can just wipe off the mistakes after lacquer dries.

PERFUME PROLONGER: Smooth a bit of petroleum jelly on your skin wherever you’re going to apply perfume, and spray as usual. It will help the scent to stick.

BODY SCRUB: Make your own at-home exfoliator by mixing Vaseline with Epsom salt or brown sugar.

Calling for All Coffee Lovers in LA

I found an amazing list of coffee shops in Los Angeles a few days ago. I was glad to see a lot of names I recognized, but it didn’t list some of my favorite shops I go to, so I wanted to introduce them here.

If you ever watched K-dramas before, you should’ve noticed that there are an unbelievable number of unique coffee shops in Korea. Korea town in LA is not strange to the exact culture. Individual and unique small coffee shops seem to be in almost every block and every shopping malls in K town.One problem I have with them would be the expensive price for drinks.

My Favorite Coffee Shop

my favorite coffee shop – caffe bene

I pick these two places often because when I go, I usually stay there for hours working on my plans and writings. I need wi-fi, a big enough table, good coffee or drink (or snacks), and most importantly spacious room to breath and possibly good lighting.

Caffe Bene in korea town offers great selections of coffee and tea. Their amazing waffles and huge Bing-Soo series (shredded ice with so many stuff I can’t even count) are always popular and great to try. Their interior is very modern with bare cement wall and high ceiling. The music is a little too loud for my taste, but pretty interesting along with their music videos projected on a wall. The second floor in Wilshire branch is a definitely quieter setting and great for people who come to study. Great meeting place for groups too. Open til midnight everyday.

Tom n Toms Coffee is a Korean version of  Starbucks or Coffee Bean. The place is hip and casual and also has unique varieties of snacks and drinks. They do have a lot of branches throughout LA, but I like the one in little tokyo for the spacious room.

Which is your favorite coffee shop in LA? Please share with us, so we can check it out too!

Although these bold statement jewelries are great fun to wear, for petite women, it could be a disadvantage to have them on because these might emphasize your short and petite stature. That’s right. That means, the awesome looking necklace a super model wore on TV or your BFF is donning may not look good on you.  That does not mean petite women can’t wear bold statement pieces of course, but it is important to find the right sized jewelry according to your heights and sizes.

Having scaling them down a bit (from what you see on super models) in mind, try Long Fringed Earrings to add a nice vertical touch. Long Necklaces that fall above the waistline or Bold Chokers that are made with high-shine metal would be also great compliments to show off for petite women this fall.

Also, just like the actress Kerry Washington from TV show “Scandal’ suggests – ‘having a tailor is a must’ – for all women for their perfect fashion style, try to find jewelry that is customizable for your pleasure. No matter what value of the jewelry you purchase,  that bold statement jewelry you wear should not be too big, too long, or too heavy on you. Remember, it has to flatter you, not overpower you.

What is your bold statement jewelry you will be wearing this fall? Please share your picture with us on Instagram with a tag “#pinkixxjewelry” You’ll be automatically entered to our surprise giveaway!

 

Think PinK This Month!

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.,:

  • One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
  • Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  • Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women.
  • Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die.

While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages.

Early detection of cancer can save lives. We encourage all of our PinKixxes to make time to see their doctors and check it out as soon as they can and remind others about National Mammography Day, October 17, too, so they can make their own plans to visit doctor’s.

To spread the words of breast cancer awareness and help out breast cancer non-profit organizations, PinKixx is donating a part of every sale from PinKixx.com in October. If you are shopping online this month, please look for the online shops that make donations from their sales to the breast cancer non-profit organizations. Also if you wish, there are a lot of fundraisers you would be able to find to make donations to and help others for. Every little bit helps!

How are you helping to spread the words of breast cancer awareness and why? Please share your story in the comment with us!
