Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue

I recently got the privilege of trying out Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue shampoo and conditioner thanks to Influenster! My hair was in need of this shampoo and conditioner very badly because of the constant usage of a curling iron and straightener. This shampoo has a great smell which is described as a light peach scent. I have seen a difference in my hair since using this shampoo and conditioner and I have only been using it for a few weeks. You can pick up these at your local drugstore for around $5-7. Head & Shoulders offer several different scents if this one is not for you. But I have really enjoyed this one and plan on repurchasing it.

If you have not heard of Influenster they are a great company who send out free products based on the badges that you earn by filling out surveys on their website. It is free to sign up and if you are chosen to try out products you are not charged for anything then either. So I encourage you to sign up! You have nothing to lose.

July Favorites 2012

Hey everyone long time no blog huh?! So sorry for not keeping up with things but to be honest I have either been busy or just not motivated to write. But I am going to try to get back on track again! :) Here are some things I have been loving this month!

Left to right:
Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish in Delicious- I love this color for summer! Its perfect and if I haven't had it on my nails I have had the one beside it. If you can't find this one it's also a dupe for an Essie polish called e-nuf is e-nuf.
The proof

 Wet n Wild's Mega Last Sugar Coat- This color is such a light baby pink and I'm obsessed with wearing it too. These polishes are so amazing for the price. They are around $1.99 and last longer than more expensive brands.

 Elf Kabuki Brush- (sorry I had just used it) but I love this brush and truth be told all of Elf's brushes! I think they are so soft, never scratchy, just overall great quality for the price.

Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel Moisturizer- This moisturizer is so refreshing for the summer months. It has a bit of a cooling effect on your face after you apply it. Plus it doesn't leave your face feeling greasy.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Lovesick- I jumped on the bangwagon! I couldn't resist trying it but I do love this product. It's long wearing, has a minty smell when you first put it on, and is just a lip product that you don't have to really think about when putting on.

More blog posts to come!! What are your fav's for the month of July?

June Favorites 2012

Hey everyone well June was a long crappy month for me but here's hoping for a better July! :) Here are a few of my favorites.

Remington curling wand- I curled my hair a ton this month and I love this wand! It heats up really fast, and I find that I curl my hair faster with it too! Plus I kinda think its pretty.

Elf Mist and Set Spray- Now this sat in my drawer forever because I wasn't that crazy about it at first, but now that summer is here again I decided to give it a try. I love it now! The trick is to spray your face and then get a tissue and lightly pat the areas that are still wet and your makeup will be set!

Ulta Duet in Precious pink lipstick/ Princess lip gloss- Not sure if Ulta still has these shades because I got this in a set of 5 for Christmas. But I seriously LOVE these shades together. I am really impressed with Ulta lipsticks because they are long wearing and although they fade it still leaves a stain on your lips. I will be hunting these shades down when I use these up so I really hope they still have them!

Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer Palette- This concealer palette is amazing and covers my acne scars and blackheads well. It comes with 3 concealer shades and one setting powder.

A few things I've been loving so far..

Hey friends! So I have never been much of a reader. I always admire those people out there that can breeze through books! It takes me forever to finish just one! But last week we had a few rainy days here and I just got in a mood where I wanted to read. So I went to my local library and had a few books in mind. Well on my hunt for a certain book I stumbled upon Betty White's book called If you ask me (And of course you won't). I love Betty White and am a huge fan of the Golden Girls so i had to check it out! This book was such an easy read. It's filled with pictures, and advice about life. I finished this book in two days! Which is a total record for me. I loved it so much!!

Yesterday I went shopping with my neice. We went to Walmart because I wanted to get a new candle because I wasn't really feeling the candles that I have. So I picked this new one up by Mainstays in Apples & Berries. I burned it last night and the scent filled up my whole room!! I love it.  Also while I was picking out a candle I decided to pick up the little bars (similiar to the scentsy bars) to burn in my warmer. They are only $2! I picked up this one in Fresh Air. It smells kinda like laundry detergent.
(p.s. Do you spy my warmer behind the bars? I got it at Walmart too for $15.00 check them out if you can't afford the Scentsy ones that are $30-$40)
I've been using Avon Foot Works beautiful overnight cream for my feet. I have really rough heels gross I know :(  but this cream has helped my heels a ton!! And it is almost always on sale for 2.99.

Lastly I also have been using the Avon Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield. I use it everytime I wash my hair and put it on after my shower. I really feel like this has helped my hair. Before I would need to put some type of smoothing cream after I straighten my hair now since using this I don't have to!

What are some things you have been loving? Also if you have any questions about any of these items feel free to ask. Have a great week everyone!
