Hi beauties! I hope you're all doing well. I've been using this hair product for a while & my mom keeps asking what perfume I've been using. It smells that good. It's a hair oil serum used to maintain shiny hair & to tame frizz. After I blow dry, straighten, or curl my hair I press the pump & one dot is all I need. I rub my hands together & massage it into my hair. I'm sure most of you have seen this product at the's called HerStyler Hair Serum. It costs $80 and only contains 2 fluid ounces. Pricey right?! I didn't pay that much for this product though! I bought mine from Guess how much I paid for it? $9.00 ;) You can get yours for $9.00-$11.00. It has given my hair some life, shine, & smells incredible. Go get yours before it's all gone!! xo

Too Faced Amazing Face Foundation +Free Goodies

Hi beauties! So the other day I was running out of my favorite foundation :( Although I love love love my lancome foundation I decided to try a new foundation.  I spoke to a beauty consultant at ULTA Beauty and she took me to the "too faced" aisle. She tried a sample of the "too faced amazing face" foundation on me & I was sold. It felt to light on my skin and it gave my skin this beautiful natural glow. Coverage is build-able so that is one of the great things about this foundation."Real skin technology adjusts to skin for flawless, undetectable coverage; even close up. Bio Transformed Botanicals soften and relax the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Light Refraction Technology visibly reduces the appearance of pores and fine lines by diffusing and reflecting light." It really feels like you're not wearing foundation at all. I mean who wants to have a heavy cakey looking foundation on their skin? no one. It blends in so smoothly with your skin. It's healthy makeup you can wear all day. I have really oily skin and I'm so happy that this foundation is OIL-FREE woo hoo! It contains natural bark extract, multi mineral complex, Vitamin A,C, & E balance skin for healthy glow. Guess what? I received FREE goodies with it too. ;) By limited time you can get a Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer and a too faced Lip injection lipgloss (which makes your lips look luscious & full) so what are you waiting for?  You are getting $44.00 worth of free gifts! Go grab this foundation before it's all gone! xo

Olay Total Effects 7 in One Foaming Cleanser- Amazing!

Hi beauties, I hope you're all having a wonderful day! So the other day I stopped by at CVS because I was running out of facial cleanser. I decided to try something new & I spotted this cleanser by Olay that won me over. It's called "Olay Total Effects 7 in one revitalizing foaming cleanser" "Total Effects Provides 7 Benefits: Deep cleansing, skin rejuvenation, fine line appearance reduction, pore appearance refinement, nourishing moisture, healthy- looking radiance, and skin softness" It really does what it says! First of all, it has an amazing smell to it. Second, my skin does not feel tight. It still keeps my skin moisturized and glowing. A little goes a long way! I love it so much I bought a second tube of it. Sometimes with other cleansers my skin would almost feel dry and tight. But this cleanser is amazing!! You have to give it a try. My friend tried it and she was hooked! Let me know what you guys think about this cleanser.  xo

Protect your skin from pre-mature aging, wrinkles, & excessive sun damage!

Hi beauties,

lets get serious here...when we take off all our makeup & look into the mirror what do we see? healthy beautiful skin or damaged & dull skin? Bottom line whether you've baked your skin in the sun or you're trying your hardest to keep your skin beautiful & healthy looking you should ALWAYS wear sunscreen. Here's a very sad but awakening picture to make you realize how critical it is to wear sunscreen all the time..

This unidentified 69-year-old trucker (pictured above) who has been on the road for 28 years has accumulated lots of exposure to ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation. 
The right side of his face had been protected from being inside the truck, away from the direct sunlight. He also experienced extensive skin thickening and sagging due to the destruction of the elastic fibers on one side of his face. It's no secret that lots of sun damages the skin. Too much ultraviolet radiation from the sun has been tied to premature aging, more wrinkles and a raised risk for potentially deadly skin cancer.

My absolute favorite sunscreen is by Aveeno. Unlike other sunscreens which feel heavy & oily on your skin Aveeno's Active Naturals Protect + Hydrate Lotion SPF 70 leaves your skin feeling smooth & glowing. I bought my sunscreen at CVS. Go get yours now! Taking care of your skin will prevent skin cancer, pre-mature aging, wrinkles, sagging and a lot more. 

Watermelon Yogurt Face Mask

2 Tablespoons of Watermelon Juice
2 Tablespoons of Plain Greek Yogurt

Prep: Mix the two ingredients together in a mixing bowl until blended well. Apply to your freshly cleansed face & neck. Leave on for 20 minutes then rinse off with warm water. Apply to an oil-free moisturizer all over your face and neck to prevent breakouts and for added moisture to balance the pH levels of your skin.


Plain yogurt is great for skin because it will leave your skin glowing due to the low amount of acidity in it, which will restore your natural pH balance. It's also great for adding hydration to the skin & is ideal for soothing sunburns or irritated skin. The yogurt will also help to gently exfoliate your skin due to the enzymes & lactic acid it contains. The watermelon juice is similar to an astringent & can help with your skin's appearance by adding a glow to it & evening out your skin tone. Fine lines & wrinkles & sun damage from the sun and acne are minimized due to the antioxidants in watermelon. It repairs your skin on so many levels and soothes your skin at the same time.
