Stila Still Loves Barbie and So do I — Fall 2009 Makeup

I remember my first Barbie. What a doll! Big hair, loads of eyeliner, perfectly pursed ruby lips, legs that didn’t end, itty bitty waist with and stacked.

If I had a dollar for each anti-frizz products I have tried over the years, I would be a very rich woman. My hair is fine and curly and frizzy. Not a great combination. And with my personal summers in full swing, my hair can easily tranform in to a bush of tumbleweed. Recently on […]
