cosmetics-1022059_640Because I keep my hair short (think Pixie style), I have to go get it cut every 5-6 weeks. That means I have a pretty steady relationship with my hairdresser.

Last week when I was getting my hair cut I mentioned to her that my scalp has been extremely dry this winter.

The first thing she asked was the dreaded question, "What kind of shampoo do you use?"

Of course the "cure" according to her was going to be buying more expensive shampoo from her salon instead of using anything I could buy at Walmart, even though I do stick to the pricey end of the aisle there.

I don't know about you, but it just about killed me to see that the shampoo and conditioner set she suggested would rid me of my dry scalp was going to cost $40! (I'm sure there are even more expensive options out there.)

When it comes to beauty products, do you really need to splurge on some of these things?

brush-791306_640One of the main things I was looking forward to when I quit my full-time job to work from home was not having to get up and stand in front of the bathroom mirror for an hour before leaving for work everyday.

Luckily, there are lots of ways you can save on beauty products so you can look like a $1 million without spending that much! Here are 4 easy ways to save on beauty products.

lv bagsLouis Vuitton handbags are a coveted brand of handbags that women of all backgrounds would love to own, from celebrities to the average woman. Louis Vuitton is one of the best known and most loved designers in the luxury fashion market and the brand’s designs can be found in upscale department stores and boutiques around the world. But if you can't really afford a Louis Vuitton bag and you are looking for a less expensive alternative, the options are to buy a used bag or a replica.

Used Bags vs. Replicas

Used designer bags can be found on websites and at yard sales for less than the original designer brand name bags. The drawbacks can be the condition of the bags or the price, as some can still be quite expensive, if they are in good condition. The other option is to purchase a replica. High Replica offers quality LV replica bags in many of the most popular and
loved designs.

Save Money on Style

The main reason replica bags are so popular is the affordable price. Women who want designer style, but lack the financial means to purchase LV bags often purchase a knock off to enjoy the beautiful bags they want. When shopping for cheap LV purses, be very careful, as the quality can vary widely. Ideally, you want to find a replica that is a good approximation of the original brand name bag. Sometimes if it's cheap, it probably looks cheap too. ...continue reading
