Any time I want to feel pulled together I throw on my favorite blazer! While shooting this outfit I had to stop by The Gallery because I set eyes on their beautiful staircase. The owner and stylist working were too nice and let me shoot in the salon. If your in the area I recommend going in!
I was so excited to get a curlformers tutorial up for you all but I put them in and when I went to take them out it was a total fail. Since I was shooting a fashion post for the blog, that will post later, I had to deal with a pony, so I thought I would still grace you with one of the best curlformers tutorials that I learned from. I absolutely love Naptural85. Hope you love the video it taught me how to achieve the perfect curlformer set. Next time I’ll just stick to my normal products instead of trying something new!
Summer always calls for a great book, the beach, and a relaxing moment. In the summer I want to just get lost in a book and make is my alternate world. Either be it comedy, mystery, or drama all I want is a good book. These summer reads are guaranteed to have you wanting more and more!
I have been saving the products that I’ve used up over the past couple months and wanted to share a quick review of all of them for you guys. I try out a lot of new things, mainly because I’m a bit of a product junkie, but also because I want to tell you all how good/bad they are. So lets get this party started!
Trader Joes Refresh Citrus Conditioner: This is a great conditioner if your looking for something thick and super moisturizing. Definitely my winter conditioner.
Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deep Treatment: HOLY GRAIL hair product for me for sure. Since I co-wash twice a week it’s an extra added boost on top of my deep conditioner treatments.
Trader Joes Tree Tree Tingle Conditioner: Great slip, great Co- washing conditioner and maybe my favorite.
Crest Pro Health Complete Mouth Wash: This mouth wash was OK. Really nothing special stood out to me. One thing I didn’t like it that it left my mouth and teeth feeling like I had a film left over. I won’t repurchase this.
Eden Bodyworks Coconut Leave in Conditioner: I’m still on the search for a great leave in product. This wasn’t my favorite. It smells great, great price but just not as moisturizing as I would of wanted.
As I Am Leave in Conditioner: Another leave in that I’m not in love with. This leave in is another one that is a great price but, I found if I used a little to much it made my hair overly greasy. If I used not enough my hair would still be dry.
Simple Oil-Free Makeup Remover Wipes: I picked up these wipes because I thought I’d try something different other then my Nuetrogena wipes. WELL, never again. These were dry, felt really scratchy on my face and didn’t remove much makeup at all. Won’t repurchase!
Covergirl Lashblast Length Mascara: My favorite drugstore mascara hands down. Lengthens my lashes and doesn’t clump. It also gives me well needed definition to my sometimes none looking lashes.
Covergirl Lastblast Fusion Waterproof Mascara: Total fail mascara for me. I didn’t notice I picked up the waterproof mascara and I’ve found out that waterproof mascara is just to heavy for my lashes. They fall and the formula clumps.
Benefit They’re Real Mascara(sample size): Hm when you say full false lashes this hands down makes your lashes look fake. I do love this mascara but it is not my holy grail.
Laura Mercier Full Volume Mascara: HOLY GRAIL mascara! My lashes look full, long, don’t droop, and is the perfect formula. If you haven’t tried this mascara go pick it up!
NYX Push-Up Mascara: NEVER AGAIN! I couldn’t even get past the smell of this mascara to fully like it. It was also a very wet formula and don’t even think about crying. It runs bad!
Trader Joes Coconut Body Butter: Great body butter for the winter. I’m so in love I’m trying to replicate it for a DIY.
Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea Body Lotion: My favorite all year scent from bath and body works. I will always repurchase this. The lotion I prefer for most the year.
Bath & Body Works Country Apple Body Lotion: An oldie but goodie. This scent always brings me back to my childhood! You can order it online or hope to find it during the semi-annual sale.
Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea Body Cream: As I said before it’s my favorite scent. The body cream though is my favorite in the winter. Very moisturizing and leave skin feeling great.
Bath & Body Works Hawaii Body Lotion: My Summer must have for sure. This scent screams summer and I’ve stocked up like crazy on it. I will definitely have enough for next summer.
Bath & Body Works Amber Blush Body Lotion: I like this scent. When I need a break from my Sweet Pea. Very fresh and lingers through out the day.
Bath & Body Works Secret Wonderland Body Lotion: Before sweet pea was my favorite this was my FAV! A total holy grail, but unfortunately they discontinued this scent. This was my last lotion.
Bath & Body Works Forever Midnight Body Lotion: The scent was great but the lotion was a little to greasy. This product has been discontinued from in-stores.
Dove Fresh Deodorant: Now I don’t stray to much from Dove deodorant. The fresh scent is my favorite though.
