I recently read this book and it gave a great list of makeup duplicates that are comparative to more expensive brands. I found it so helpful that I thought I’d share it here too.

Crockpot Pulled Pork + Cheese Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Adapted from this recipe

Yields: 4 sandwiches + leftover pork
Total Time: 8 hours for the pork; 20 minutes for the sandwiches
pulled pork
1 (6 pound) pork butt/shoulder (mine was bone-in)
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cups of Dr. Pepper or Rootbeer
16 ounces of barbecue sauce + additional for drizzling
grilled cheese sandwiches
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup milk
6 ounces freshly grated white cheddar cheese
8 slices slices whole grain bread
softened butter for spreading
For pork:
Optional but yields the best result: heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add about 1-2 tablespoons olive oil. Sear the pork on every side (about 2-3 minutes per side) until golden brown before adding to the crockpot.
Add pork to crockpot with onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Add 16 ounces of barbecue sauce and 3 cups of pop/soda. Cook on high for 8 hours, tossing once or twice if desired. After 6 hours, shred pork with forks or kitchen tongs and add remaining barbecue sauce. Toss pork to coat and let sit for 20-30 minutes before serving to absorb everything. Remove bone (if bone-in) before serving.
This makes a ton of pork and can be made well ahead of time and also frozen afterwards!
For sandwiches:
To make the cheese sauce, heat a small saucepan over medium heat and add butter. Once sizzling, whisk in flour and stir for 1-2 minutes until golden and fragrant and bubbly. Add in milk, whisking well to combine, then reduce heat to low and add cheese, stirring until totally melted and smooth. Keep over low heat and stir every few minutes while assembling sandwiches.
Heat an electric skillet or griddle over medium heat. Butter the outside sides of each slice of bread. Place 4 slices butter-side down on the skillet, then top with a few handfuls of pulled pork. Cover in cheese sauce, then top with the other slices or bread, butter-side up. I cooked these grilled cheeses a lot quicker than the others I usually make since the cheese is already melted. As long as the pork and cheese sauce is warm, cook these until each side is deeply golden and crispy, about 2-3 minutes. Serve immediately!

Tuck and Cover is one of the hottest hairstyles right now.

It is really easy to do and all you need is a stretchy headband. You can now watch the video tutorial and there are also three other versions of this look including the Tuck and Cover Half! See the others at the bottom of this post!

Step 1: Begin by sliding on a stretchy headband to hold back the front part of your hair.

Step 2: Next, place a second headband over the top of your head and slightly onto your forehead; this is what will hold the hair as it’s tucked.

Step 3: Starting on the left side of the head, grab a 1-1 ½” inch section of hair and roll it up to the headband and tuck it into the band and pulling it tight so the ends stick out.

Step 4: Then pick up a 1” section and combine it with the tail of the previously tucked strands and roll it up and into the headband. Again, pulling the strand tight and letting the tail stick out.
Note: Pieces of hair will loosen and fall down. Just pull them back up and retuck them into the band pulling the ends tight.

Step 5: Continue this method of adding in hair to the tails of the previously tucked strands until you’ve tucked in all the hair.

Step 6: To finish, slide the hairband back slightly over your hair, like a headband, until it falls over the top of the first headband and hides it.
*It can also be helpful to tuck in a strand on the right and then a strand on the left, working your way towards the middle of your head.

Overall, all of your hair should be wrapped up and then tucked into the band. If any tails or flyaways slip out just wrap and retuck them. If any of them are too short to reach, hide them within the loops. Finish with hairspray.

Also, this will work best on day two or three hair or with some added product that’ll give the hair some grip. If the hair is too “clean” it’ll easily slip out of the band.
