2 Natural and Easy DIY Hair Masks

This post is sponsored by Northgate Markets.


No excuses guys! I have found 2 of the easiest and natural DIY hair masks possibly ever. I know that’s a bold statement to make. I was inspired by a tour of Northgate Markets here in Southern California. I blame it all on the fresh veggies and fruits that caught my eye with their stunning colors. I’m hoping the next time you walk into your local market, you’re going to look at your produce department a lot differently. Read more

As the fall leaves tumble into the days of winter, one thing is guaranteed to happen—dry skin. I don’t know about you, but I am not a fan. In fact, I hate it. This is when I bust out my beloved body butters. One that I have happily added to my winter skin regime is the Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter in Be Comforted Warm Apple Crisp. I really wish this was a scratch-and-sniff kind of post, because this stuff smells amaze! But does it work? Read more

Beauty Buzz / WEN Cleansing Conditioner


We’ve all seen the WEN Hair Care commercials with founder Chaz Dean—haven’t we? He’s a Hollywood celebrity hair stylist with a booming salon. Seems like an awesome product.

I have a little blogger confession. Sometimes, I have a little bit of a problem reviewing beauty products on time and in season. For example, I was gifted this ColourPop In Bloom collection ($39) by Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg in the spring. It is now the middle of summer and I’m just getting around to trying it out. Oopsie…I don’t really follow makeup trends anyways, so I guess it’s no biggie. These shades are always in season for me!
