Beauty box giveaway! I’m decluttering and giving away beauty products

Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a good weekend! I have something fun for you today: with the baby on the way (only a little over a month to go), I decided to go through my beauty product stash and do some decluttering. I have way too much stuff and the ‘worse’ thing is: most of the stuff I have, I’ve never even tried. So most of it has never been opened. I think I can literally open a drugstore tomorrow if I wanted to… LOL! I now have a box filled with (full-size and deluxe size) beauty products that...

Unboxing my July PLAY! by SEPHORA subscription box

Hi! It’s me, officially the worst blogger in the world… 😀 I haven’t been updating my blog, because I’ve just been way too tired. This baby is kicking my butt! Also, I’ve been feeling slightly overwhelmed: being pregnant and having an almost 4 year old at the same time, is hard! I’m sure most other moms can relate… Finding a comfortable balance between ‘resting’ and spending time/entertaining an active toddler isn’t easy. Anyway, I received my 3rd PLAY! by SEPHORA today! Like I mention all the time: I love subscription boxes, simply because I love trying out new things. I’m...

My updated hair care routine, using Nexxus New York Salon Care products

This post is sponsored by Nexxus New York Salon Care, a product of Unilever, as a part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. Last time I paid a visit to a hair salon was back in April. I gave the hair dresser ‘carte blanche’ and ended up with a stacked A-line bob haircut: layering at the back and long front locks. I loved it then and I still love it now. No regrets. 🙂 You can see pictures of my cut here. With every new hairdo comes a new hair care routine. At least for me! I swapped out...

I cut my hair! I’m all about that “bob” now :-)

I cut my hair! Yes, again – see my hair ‘before’ here and here. This time I went much shorter. I was going for a simple bob, but the hairstylist I went to at the A Salon Paul Mitchell in San Diego had a better plan. She gave me an A-line bob haircut that is ‘stacked’: meaning there’s layering at the back and long front locks. The back view is basically the focal point of the look: it’s a bob that’s rounded at the back through gradual layering and slightly angled toward the front. I love it! Pictures below. Here...

Unboxing: my ESSENCE BeautyBox

Back in February I received another ESSENCE BeautyBox that is too good not to share with you! 😀 The ESSENCE box is a monthly subscription box with 5 makeup, skincare and hair products from big (black-owned) brands. The difference between this box and any other subscription boxes is that this one is targeted at women of color (WOC), which is pretty cool, especially when relating to hair products. In these boxes you will not find any products for ‘naturally straight’ hair, for example, or ‘blonde’ hair, products that I wouldn’t use anyway. The products are selected by the people from...

Guest blog: will my laser hair removal be permanent?

A beauty treatment I’m considering doing in the future is laser hair removal. After doing some research I noticed that one of the most common questions people who have had laser hair removal ask is: will my results be permanent? Laser hair removal costs a lot of money and of course people who’ve had it, want to know if the removal will be permanent. While it may seem like an easy ‘yes or no’ answer, it’s not. There are several important factors that determine whether or not you will achieve permanent hair removal. In today’s guest blog Kevin DiCerbo will...

My current hair care: Dessange Paris Purifying Clay Collection (available at Target)

This post is all about my hair care. 🙂 Last time I mentioned my hair was when I talked about what I do before, while and after straightening my naturally curly hair. You can find that post here. After I cut my hair at the end of October I was looking for new hair products, because my new, short hair was looking super healthy and I wanted to keep it that way! The timing couldn’t be any better, because right around that time I was approached by Dessange Paris. Dessange Paris has their flagship store on one of my favorite...
