How to Bag Beach-Chic Hair

We love the beach and the ocean; but we love the look of fresh out of the ocean hair even more! Not all of us can take a dip in the Atlantic to get the waves we want, so here are our top 3 favorite products to get that mermaid look, without salt water.

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray gives you a fresh out of the ocean look, even if you're miles away from one. Just spray throughout damp hair and get ready to be wavy.

Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray is an affordable way to make your hair look like everyday is a beach day. Spray in damp hair and style with fingers to create textures and waves.

Getting tousled waves is easy with Charlotte Ronson's A Perfect Mess Beach Hair. Spray in damp hair to get the perfect waves. Marine botanicals give hair bounce, flexibility, and long-lasting hold.

What are you waiting for beach babe? Don't forget your sun screen ;)

A Website that Literally Shrinks Your Bills!

Every now and then comes along a little gem of technology that makes life just a little bit easier. Paying bills ranks at the top of our "No Fun" list... luckily we have found a website that makes the monthly chore a little less painful on your pockets!

Billshrink is a FREE website service that will literally analyzes your current bills and tells you how to save money!

According to the website, 8 out of 10 people overpay for cell phone service and minutes they don't use. Want to find out if you're paying too much? Billshrink will measure your usage, your calls, and find a more suitable plan... even amongst your current provider!

Other ways the website can save you money include finding the cheapest gas near your house on your commute, telling you the best television service deal for your area, and finding you credit cards that actually suit your needs and spending habits.

We put the website to the test to analyze my own cell phone bill. Currently, I pay $130 a month for unlimited voice, text and data with Verizon Wireless. After logging in through my Verizon Account, Billshrink checked out my minute usage, who I call most, etc and gave me some great data:

By changing my plan to 900 anytime minutes plus one add on, Billshrink informed me that I would be able to save $648 over a two year period! That's for doing absolutely nothing... except changing my plan with Verizon:

Billshrink is certainly something to call home about!

This Spring is all about pastels. Throw your black and blue skinny jeans to the side and switch them up for something brighter and more fun.

Pastels look great in skinny jeans. Pair them with a white flowy top and you're ready to conquer the April showers while still looking fresh. Your GRACESHIP bag will be the perfect finishing touch adding a bold and sophisticated statement piece to a soft outfit. The pastel colors don't have to stop at your wardrobe. Pastel nail polish is also all the rage.

Something new to try this season is to paint all your nails the same color but your ring finger; paint that finger a darker hue, or switch it up completely with glitter. This look is sure to catch you some jealous stares.

It's time to take "pretty in pink" to a whole new level. Brighten up and have some fun with color this Spring!

Kiss Tired Eyes Goodbye

Here at GRACESHIP we love simplicity. Who wants or has the time to spend hours trying to cover up dark circles? No one! It's 3 AM and you're finishing up that business report, or just getting in from a girls night out; we've all been there. Waking up the next morning is a task in itself, getting ready shouldn't have to be. Here are a few go to products for covering up tired, dark eyes and making you look as fresh as you did the night before.

Benfit's Erase Paste is a lifesaver. The creamy blendable formula comes in three different shades to perfectly conceal and camouflage dark circles. The melon undertones cancel out dark circles, giving you the perfect bright eyes.

Bobbi Brown's newly reformulated Creamy Concealer is foolproof. The yellow based concealer instantly camouflages dark circles. The new formula gives you the perfect amount of coverage with one swipe to last you all day. This concealer is also infused with skin conditioners designed to protect the delicate skin under your eye.

Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage isn't a secret anymore! The two shade system is perfect for camouflaging dark circles and minor imperfections on the skin.
