Not Your Mothers Sea Salt Spray Review

"It adds sexy, tousled waves and a light matte finish to any hair type. Infused with natural dead see salt and sea kelp this salon formula has you and your hair on the boardwalk all year long."

I like this product, can not say I love it, but its a good product overall. First of all, it will not give your hair curls, or waves really for that matter, if your hair is straight like mine. But, I did feel like it gave my hair an overall nice texture and slightly more volume. It also has a really lovely coconut smell to it which has to be my
favorite thing about it. The directions say to brush it through to apply it evenly, I've found that if I use a brush, any texture or waves I had totally go away, so I only finger brush when I have it in. I spray it in while my hair is damp, and spray a little more while my hair air dries. Also, I wish it sprayed a finer of a mist for more even application

The Verdict : Overall I like it and I use it semi-often, but I think I will only buy it again if its on sale, I think it would  work way better on someone who has hair that is already a little bit wavy.

Lolita Blog Carnival : My First Lolita Item

I remember I was in the 9th grade with my friend Kirsten. We were both rather artsy (ahem..goth) and into J-rock bands like Malice Mizer. One day she brought one of the GLBs to school, I was fascinated with it, I had never seen clothes like that before. Lolita clothing was much more unattainable then , as none of the
brands, except Metamorphose shipped over sees. On a trip to San Francisco, at a Kinokuniya Bookstore, I discovered they had them, I was so excited I picked up two issues! They came with posters which I of course had to hang on my walls. I used to draw designs of the dresses I saw in my sketch book, it definitely had a big impact on me. Even now, I’ve found I’m more drawn to old school designs.  Two years or so later, I bought my first dress from Metamorphoses. The posters are down now, replaced by “grown up” framed art. The magazines are worn now, with pages falling out, seldom flipped through. But whenever I come across them I get filled with warm nostalgic feelings. ~~*```

Lolita Blog Carnival : Next Item on my wishlist

The next item on my wish list is Juliette et Justine’s Cecil Robe! I don’t think I will ever find it, though still listed on the web shop, it is out of stock. I emailed them about restocking but they never contacted me back, unfortunately…… Now that I think about I can not recall ever seeing hardly any of JetJ's items being in stock

I have always admired JetJ’s painting dressing, but none of them were quite right to me… some were cut weird, some just had downright ugly paintings on them. However, Cecil Robe is absolute perfection!

Cecil Robe’s is based off of Waterhouse’s painting of a sleeping St Cecilia. ( Random Fact: Andrew Lloyd Weber, the creator of The Phantom of the Opera musical, purchased the painting for 6 million British pounds! Luckily, Cecil Robe isn't quite that much)

Pre-Raphaelite is my favorite art movement, I also think the bodice is super elegant, without being to over the top.

Juliette Justine's web store can be found here, where you can see more beautiful designs...that are all out of stock Lol
