Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! 

A couple of months ago, Love Beauty & Planet sent me a few products to try out, including their argon oil and lavender smooth & serene shampoo and conditioner duo. I've never heard of the brand before, so I was excited to test them out. I was immediately intrigued by the beautiful packaging, the fact that it was suited for frizzy hair (which I have), and the fact that they don't contain parabens and other harsh chemical ingredients, which as you know I really try my best to avoid.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I mentioned in a recent blog post how I love what a bold lip can do to the most simple outfit. It can dress it up and make you look more put together without much effort. Not only do I love it for that reason, but I also think it's a great way to add that summer flare to an outfit as well. We often embrace color much more this time of year, so why not smear some color on our lips? It allows for us to go rather simple with the rest of the makeup look as well. What I've been doing lately is skipping the liner and piling on the mascara. It's one less step you have to worry about and we all know that it can take near to forever to try and match each eye when it comes to that wing. Add some blush, a little bit of highlight and you're good to go.

Happy Tuesday friends!

If you follow me on Instagram (you totally should ;) and happened to watch my IG story on my Sephora sale haul, then you'd remember me sharing this Caudalíe Deep Cleansing Exfoliator. I was in need of a new exfoliator because the one I'd been using wasn't doing the job for me. I have combination/oily skin with larger pores, so I need an exfoliator that's gentle, yet still abrasive enough to clean everything out and help minimize my large pores. 

Today I want to share what my experience has been since using it for the past month or so, as promised.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends! 

For Mother's Day, I was contacted by Pai-Shau, a tea infused haircare brand, and was kindly gifted a trio gift set containing two products from their hydrating line and an infusion product to review. I was so intrigued by their innovative concept of infusing an assortment of teas, vitamins, and antioxidants. I've never heard of a brand that's done this before, so I was eager to try these products out to see what they'd do for my hair.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

As many of you know, I've been testing a few moisturizers for the past several months and for the most part, I've been quite satisfied with the results I've noticed with each moisturizer I've tried. As I was nearing the end of the one I've been recently using, though I loved that moisturizer, I was thinking about testing another brand, but I didn't know which one should be next, so I kept holding off. I typically like stock up on a product when I notice I'm nearing the end, so that I don't run out and have absolutely nothing to use. I still had some time to think about which product I'd like to try, so when I received the Influenster Vox Box with the OleHenriksen C-Rush Brightening Gel Creme to test out, I was very excited and eager to try. So much so that I didn't both finishing the one I'd been using, instead keeping it on stand by should this one not work out for me.

Happy Wednesday my lovely friends! 

Today I'm sharing my thoughts on two products I received back when I was a few months pregnant with Aviah from Aveda's Pramasana collection. I didn't use them while pregnant because I was super paranoid about trying new products. I began using them a few weeks postpartum and they've been staples in my haircare routine ever since. I tend to use them at least once a week becasue my hair is fine and oily by nature, so the fact that they provide a deep cleaning to the scalp is perfect for me.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

About a month ago, I received the L'Oreal Elnett vox box, courtesy of Influenster, which contained the extra strong hold hairspray for dry/damaged hair from the collection. As you all know, I predominately use organic or all natural beauty products, so I was a bit reluctant to give this hairspray a try. What persuaded me was that it contains argon oil, which is what my shampoo and conditioner set contain (see that post here). I don't really use hairspray because I haven't found one that I truly love, perhaps until now.

Happy Thursday my sweet friends! 

Today, I'm brining you yet another review on a skin mask I've been testing out for about a month courtesy of Alya Skin. I've mentioned a number of times how much I love using clay masks and how I use them nearly every Sunday in preparation for a new week (see my last post here).

Happy Thursday my sweet friends!

Today, I'm reviewing a straightening brush from HerStyler. When the folks over at HerStyler provided me with the opportunity to review one of their hot tools, I immediately took the opportunity to try out their straight brush pro. I'd been hearing a lot about straightening brushes, but had never tried them before. I either blow dry my hair or use a flat iron (which they also offer) so I thought this would be a great time to try one out and see how it works. Keep reading for my thoughts on it, as well as a step-by-step tutorial on what I did to achieve the finished look.

Happy Tuesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're having a great day so far. Today, I'm sharing my current morning skincare routine. As with anything else, the use of some of these products may change at some point, especially since I like to try out new skincare when I'm out of a particular product. I enjoy reading what products others' use. In fact, this is how I'm often introduced to new brands and products. Some, I've come to know through former collaborations.
