Fab & Easy Manicure with Jamberry Nails! [GIVEAWAY CLOSED]

I love me a good manicure but when I'm on a tight budget (can't go to the salon) or don't have time (husband rushes me out the door) - I end up going out feeling less than fab with my plain nails.

Drybar Pairs with City of Hope*

I remember how fascinated I was to learn that it is not ideal to wash your hair with shampoo everyday because it strips away the natural oils in your hair thus making it weak and brittle. I would have an oily scalp if I didn't shampoo my hair every day and so when I was in the process of training my hair, I discovered my love for dry shampoo which kept my hair at bay in between washes.

I wish I WOKE UP LIKE THIS everyday - lol!

I'm so excited to share with y'all something that I've been wanting to try for so long! I don't talk much about hair since I don't really do much besides using my awesome BEACHWAVER by Sarah Potempa (check out my review on that here).

Review: StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner*

It seems that I can't stress enough about pores lately because today I'm going to share a new retinol moisturizer I've been using in my skincare routine.

Seriously, why stress about pores? Reducing the size of your pores really helps protect the skin and allows it to appear firmer and healthier. Retinol combats early signs of aging and also corrects existing damages. It is a beauty must have in your skincare routine for those who are cautious of aging complexions or dealing with complex skin issues.

Review: Dr. Brandt Skincare PoreDermabrasion™ Pore Perfecting Exfoliator*

One of my biggest skin concerns are with my pores. I have noticeable pores in the t-zone area of my face, especially on my face right next to the sides of my nose.

Why are pores so controversial? Okay, I'm exaggerating just a tad bit (lol) because it's not a controversy but seriously though -

Not only is it desirable to have clear and flawless skin but having minimal pores is essential for a healthy complexion. We don't want dirt and bacteria to get down and under our skin which can further cause complex skin issues.

September Beauty Favorites

I can't believe that it's the first of October already! I don't have a whole lot to share because when I really like a product, I'm usually stuck on it until I'm done using it lol.
