Ulta Beauty’s Biggest Event of the year starts today!

I don’t post about beauty sales that often anymore. After a while of trying to keep up, I noticed that there are just way too many going on simultaneously. Covering all, or even just the big ones, became almost impossible for me. So now I just post the ones I think are really worth mentioning, like brand friends & family sales, QVC’s today’s special value or any MAC, Sephora or Ulta sales. πŸ˜€ The biggest sale at the moment is definitely Ulta Beauty 21 Days of Beauty for Spring 2017. It’s their biggest sale of the year: it lasts, you...

Unboxing my Influenster Fierce VoxBox

Packages in the mail…who doesn’t enjoy receiving them? I sure do! Every now and then Influenster sends me their VoxBox and I love it! This time it was their Fierce VoxBox and it had 5 items.

Mommy review: SoCozy hair products for kids (and a sweepstake!)

Both my kids were born with a full head of hair. My 4-year-old son has thick straight hair, whereas his sister (who will be 5 months in a few days) has more fine, curly hair. One thing they have in common: they both have A LOT of hair! For this reason, I make sure to use good products on their hair; products they use at (kids) salons. For Mason’s hair I’ve been using SoCozy. Mason has been using SoCozy’s Boing Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Spray. Seems like a lot for a boy who’s only 4 years old, but he doesn’t...

Guest blog: 4 awesome substances which prevent hair loss

Hair is one of the most important physical traits of any person. It is definitely one of the first things other people notice on you. Unlike some other parts of the body, hair can be easily modified and changed. In fact, it can be used to show off your character. Unfortunately, some people lose their hair too soon. Sometimes, this can be caused by a medical condition such as alopecia. In most cases, it is simply due to old age. Given that hair follicles are so sensitive, it is expected that they will start falling off sooner than later. Luckily,...

Review: Head & Shoulders Green Apple Shampoo

It’s been really busy this past week, guys. Having a toddler and a baby sure does take up a lot of time. I haven’t even had time to properly do my hair after I wash it. Instead of straightening my hair with a flat iron, like I usually do, I’ve been doing a so-called ‘wash-and-go’. Wash-and-go simply means I’ve been washing my hair and letting it air-dry. I have naturally curly hair, so that’s what I’ve been rocking. The picture below is my hubby and I on Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚ My hair has been looking beautiful. Not to toot my own...

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

Giveaway is now closed. 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...

Unboxing my July PLAY! by SEPHORA subscription box

Hi! It’s me, officially the worst blogger in the world… πŸ˜€ 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. πŸ™‚ 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 thatÒ€ℒs rounded at the back through gradual layering and slightly angled toward the front. I love it! Pictures below. Here...
