Straight Talk offers prepaid wireless plans for people who do not want to be locked into a contract. All you have to do is buy a phone, purchase a plan that suits your needs and then activate it.
I was interested in Straight Talk because I spend a lot of time in the US. It costs me a fortune to use my Canadian cell phone in the US.
Straight Talk offers a plan that looks too good to be true. It is $45 a month for unlimited talk, text and data with no contract. You can purchase it at Walmart or on their website.
That plan is better than the one I have on my Canadian phone with Fido. So I decided that I could buy myself another iPhone and get the unlimited plan for $45 a month to use while in the US. Before I did that I researched online a bit and found that a lot of people were having issues with the “unlimited data”. I found reports that Straight Talk throttled data.
In case you are unfamiliar with throttling data, it means that Straight Talk might limit, or throttle, the rate at which it accepts data, in order to avoid overloading its processing capacity.
I decided to talk matters into my own hands and email Straight Talk directly about their unlimited data. Below is the correspondence with them. Read the rest of this entry »
China Glaze Rich & Famous is a must have colour for pink lovers! It is a beautiful bright pink colour, I would say it is Barbie pink!
I think it would look great on all skin tones and I wear it on both my fingers and my toes.
With two coats Rich & Famous is opaque, it goes on smoothly and doesn’t streak. I used Seche Vite base coat, two coats of Rich & Famous and then the Seche Vite top coat for this look.
I definitely recommend adding it to your nail polish, it is a must have for summer!
I purchase all my China Glaze nail polish at Sally Beauty Supply. I wait for when they have it on sale.

With all the warnings of tanning beds causing skin cancer more and more people are using self-tanners to get their glowing, bronzed skin. If you are new to self-tanning you will most likely encounter a few mistakes along the way. Here are some tips to help with self-tanning screw ups.
If you forget to wear mitts, or just don’t want to you may end up with orange hands. To get rid of your oompa loompa like hands, rub a lemon over your palms, then rinse after two minutes. If you have any nicks or cuts on your hands it could be painful, so beware.
If you end up with streaks on your body you can buff those out with a damp washcloth. Or grab some shimmery, bronzer and spread it over your skin to cover up the mistakes until your fake tan wears down. Another great idea to mask the streaks is to take one part of your favorite moisturizer and mix it with two parts of liquid bronzer. A good trick is to save your old broken pieces of bronzer to mix with moisturizer to create an instant glow. Read the rest of this entry »
By contouring and highlighting your face you can change your whole appearance. It is fairly easy to do and can make your facial features pop!
Contouring is used to add depth to your face. By adding a deeper colour under your cheek bones you add dimension to your face. Highlighting, however does the opposite and makes the area you highlight standout.
I found this great highlighting and contouring chart on GiveGoodFace. I thought I’d share it with you as it is a great reference guide if you are unsure about highlighting and contouring.
