AdSense Account Disabled? 4 Appeal Process Tips

New Channel + AdSense Rant Banned Account Disabled

So as some of you already know. I HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM THE GOOGLE ADSENSE PROGRAM!

And I have created a NEW YouTube Channel: Glamorbelle (starting over is a B!T¢H)!!

And what for? According to them…click fraud. Really? I have read countless stories on Google AdSense forums about people loosing THOUSANDS of dollars from having their accounts disabled from the program.

Before I get into my recent AdSense ban let me explain what AdSense is. People use Google AdSense to monetize their blogs by embedding ads. If people click on your ads will generate money from the clicks. The amount of money you get is based on the traffic to your site and the CPM (click per mil or 1,000). People can also make money from their YouTube videos . By allowing YouTube to place ads in their videos they can make money. It’s all tied to AdSense.

 

So, this is what happened

Get Smooth Skin Easily with Andovia Dead Sea Mud Soap

andovia dead sea mud soap

I have never tried any dead sea soaps until now. I have always had dry skin issues. It was annoying to deal with. Always scratching uncontrollably; especially in the winter ugh. Recently I was sent Andovia Dead Sea Mud Soap from CleopatrasChoice.com to review*. As a beauty blogger I figured this would be good since I have heard so many good things about dead sea mud soap.

Some of the benefits of dead sea mud and masks:

  • Stimulates blood flow
  • Gives you GLOWING skin
  • Unclogs pores
  • Good for people with eczema, psoriasis, and acne
  • Hydrates skin
  • Firms and tightens skin

Sassy Swag Designs 100% Silk Wrap for Hair – Review

Sassy Swag Review-THUMB-2

I know it’s been a while loves!

I am back to review a Silk Wrap for hair that I received by the owner of Sassy Swag Wraps.

NOTE: This is NOT a compensated review. These are my opinions. Not influenced by anyone but me.

This wrap is designed to protect your hair and hairline at night from friction. I think it would be good to use this silk wrap to wrap hair (obviously) and preserve silk wrap hair. This is safe for relaxed and natural hair (my hair is natural). I wore this wrap on 4+ occasions.

Frizzy Hair? – How to Blow dry Natural Hair Straight

blow dry natural hair

 

If you are like me, you have thick curly hair. Sometimes it’s a beast to work with and usually ends up frizzy after blow drying straight or flat ironing your hair.  Some people think that they need a ton of products to tame frizzy hair. Yes, the most expensive or best treatment of frizzy might work. But that is not always the answer. People tend to neglect the true reason for frizzy hair. More than likely lack of moisture in the hair is the reason why your hair is frizzy. So how do you fix frizzy hair?

This is what I do:

1. I wash my hair with a moisturizing shampoo (most times it’s a non-sulfate version). Rinse.

2. Deep condition my hair with a moisturizing conditioner with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. (Adjust this for your hair type, ie: fine hair would use less oil).

3. Let conditioner sit for an hour. For better results sit under a hooded dryer for 30-45 minutes. Rinse.

4. Blowdry hair with a serum (dime size amount) and heat protectants. I use Chi Silk infusion or Garnier serums.

5. Flat iron your hair with serum – dime size amount.

In this video I  will show you how I to blow dry your natural curly (or kinky in my case) hair the RIGHT way to tame frizzy hair.

I will blowdry my natural hair straight with no heat damage. Once you get the hang of it you will be blow drying your hair like a pro. Then you can move on to flat ironing your hair without heat damage.

Stack It Up! How to Wear Stacked Bracelets

stacked bracelets gold watch

Wearing stacked bracelets (or stacking rings and necklaces) are nothing new.  Come to think of it, I have been doing it since middle school. Since it’s “IN” again I guess I will talk about it.

When stacking bracelets there are some general “rules”…well, guidelines to pull the look off. So here are my 5 tips on how to wear stacked bracelets for YOU to pull the off the look!

1. Color? – Some people like themes. I’m talking about holidays, seasons, locations (ie: beach) etc. These can work wonderfully if you’re not sure about which colors to pair together.

Some days I try to match my clothes. If it’s Valentine’s Day I wear red and pink bracelets, etc. If you are still not sure, try one color such as silver, gold, etc. The different textures of the bracelets give your arm visual interest. Very elegant.

Are You BOLD Enough to Try This? NEON Fashion Trend

Neon fashion shoes nail polish purse

 

This summer’s trend is all about NEON FASHION!!! So I ask. Are you BOLD enough to try these “crazy”, “in your face” colors? I did not think I was. It all started about 8 years ago,  wearing eyeshadow colors besides browns and other neutrals. I began to experiment with colors like gold, purple, dark blues and greens. Fast forward to now, and I am purchasing shades of  yellow and orange! It only takes getting out of your comfort zone once to get into “trouble”. 😉

I knew this LOreal nail polish review was the one I wanted when I was absolutely mesmerized when I took my usual stroll down the beauty aisle at Target. This L’Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish, Club Prive line is beautiful and reminds me of the Tiffany & Co. boxes.

I topped my nails with a color from Spoiled (a Wet n Wild company). It is a blue glitter color called “Use Protection”.
