Beauty tips: The wonders of lemons!!

Hello everyone!

So recently i have had a big hair/scalp problem... 
About a month ago my mom and
i decided to stop using shampoo and conditioner. I know what you're thinking,

Hehe...I still do shower and use shampoo and conditioner, i just use more natural products now.

So the biggest reason why i stopped using shampoo and conditioner was because
my hair was super dry and it was looking so damaged. It was not because
i was straightening or curling my hair, or because i was using lots of
products in my hair. I almost never curl or use any heat on my hair so i couldn't  
understand why my hair was like this. 

So i decided to stop using ANY chemicals in my hair. And it was ruff at 1st since
my hair was so used to the chemicals, and i was used to the perfume smell.
I decided to use lemon juice as my shampoo and conditioner ( my mom read
online that it cures dandruff and dry hair).

Here's what happened:

My hair was feeling amazing after using it once, i am not kidding. And i was so shocked
because i never thought lemon juice would be the product to cure my dandruff
and my dry hair. My hair was so shiny and manageable. 

My mom has very oily hair and she uses it too, and it works perfectly well for her as well. But it took a while ( 4 days) before my mom's hair stopped being super oily. Because she stopped using "real" shampoo and conditioner the natural oil in her hair came out.

I am definitively using lemon juice for ever!

I really recommend using lemon juice as shampoo and conditioner,
because of these reasons:

1. There are no chemicals and everything is all natural.
2. You can be 100% sure that no animals where harmed.
3. Lemon juice is 100% vegan =)
4. It makes your hair super healthy and shiny!
5.Super cheap!
And more!

Lemon juice is awesome, not only because you can use it as shampoo
and conditioner, but you can use it for other things too.

Can you use Lemon juice as face and body brightener? 
Answer: YES you can ! I use it every night when i  am in the shower. My acne on my face and
back has cleared up a lot. My face is much brighter and "alive" looking. Lemon juice also cleans your body, just like soap.

Can you use Lemon juice as hair brightener/highlighter?
Answer: YES you can!! I put some on my hands before going out in the sun
and put it all over my hair. I have dark brown hair, so it will take a while before seeing  big results, but i can see some lighter streaks here and there =).

I really hope some of you try it!

Thanks for reading!

web reviews: OMGPOP

Hello fellow blogger friends!

I hope you all are doing well. Before i start this blog post i
want to introduce my new blog series that i am going to be making
a few times a month. I am going to start to make web site reviews.

I don't know if you guys follow me on twitter, but if you do, then you probably know that i am going to study at a media production school starting in August ( for about 2 years). I am going to study web designing with bonus 3D lessons. And i'm super excited!

So since i love going to different websites and exploring them, i thought it would be fun to review some sites for you guys!

I really hope you will like them and please post any website requests in the comments bellow!


OMGPOP is an awesome online gaming sites where all people over the world can chat while playing. That's probably  the best feature on the site, chatting with the people!And on all the games you play will different people, and it actually feels like you're playing with friends.

On OMGPOP there are tons of games you can choose from, here are some of my favorites:

¤ blockles : This is the best game on the site, in my opinion. I'm sure many people have played a very similar game to blockles, it's very popular in cell phone games too. 
All you are going to do it to get at least 4 blocks together and you get a point and sometimes also extra bonus points. And you can give trash to the opponents.
This game is super exciting, i promise!

¤ balloono : Love this game. But i'm not so good at it though..hehe. This game is about blowing your opponents up with water balloons. It is super fun, but there are so many great players, and it's super hard to win.

¤ draw my thing : You all probably know about this game, since it's such an popular Iphone app. I have not played the game on an Iphone game yet, but this game is awesome!
This game is actually the reason why i found this site. I was getting curious on what this game was about so i  googled it! And OMGPOP came up.

 ¤ booya : This game is super similar to UNO. I remember when i was younger my mom and i used to play UNO a  lot, so i guess i kind of have a lot of practice, haha. It's a very fun game to play!

¤ letterblox : If you like spelling/world games then you're going to love this!  This is an good game for dyslectics too ( i'm mild dyslectic), because it trains your brain to remember the spelling of the words.

Another thing i love about this site, is you can also buy things from the shop ( with the points you get while playing) and dress up your players and buy background colors and designs.

Here is my profile: beautyyummy101 let's be friends!

Thank you All for reading this!

Talk to you next time!
