Need Energy?

1/4 Hydrating Lotion
"whoa!" Invigorating beads that act as little wake-up calls for your skin. The sparkling scent of grapefruit & lemongrass. An ultra-light hydrating gel formula. A get-it-going boost in the morning? Big Time.
Wake Up. Go Fresh.
That's the product description! I'm a sucker for these kind of products! With this one I'm really not impressed :(. It smells great but it seems to have more lotion in it than soap and that's definitely not a good thing for me. I ended up having to re-shower with my trusty Oil of Olay. now If you are the kind of girl that needs that extra moisture this would be great for you. I like getting out of the shower feeling clean not slippery! I rather add moisture by lotion.

Pantene Texture Collection

This little can brings me so much joy! Its from the Pantene Texture Collection and its the BOMB! I was really having problems with my hair curling up around the edges when I workout. Its so annoying to have straight hair every where except the hairline. I put a little of this around the edges and work out, when I comb my hair down it looks exactly the same! The formula is creamy so it doesn't take a whole lot to get results. It is not hard or flaky either!
I got it at Target for $5.99.

Makeup Remover for the Lazy Woman

Sometime when I go out and don't feel like washing off my makeup instead of keeping it on to get a zit I use these soft Neutrogena towelettes! They even magically remove waterproof mascara and you can forget about an oily residue! I even use them before I cleanse my face at night to make sure all the makeup is gone. Price 5.99

Need Cooling Off?

I'm always looking for things that don't contain dairy because my son cant eat it. He wants to be like every other kid and have ice cream!! Yesterday I found this Italian ice at walmart and I just let him try it and he loves it! With 12o calories a serving I love it too!


I had never tried any Burt's Bees products before but I'm glad that I picked up this little kit on impulse at Borders Books of all places. The healthy glow part caught my eye, and for the price of 11.99 I said why not!

Mini Exfoliating Body Bar
(.80 oz.) - Haven't used this yet!
Exfoliating Body Wash (1 fl. oz.) -Smells divine!
Mini Body Lotion (.50 fl. oz.) - It leaves your skin shimmery after use
Day Creme (.25 oz.)- I use this after I cleanse my face in the morning and its really creamy and moisturizing.
Night Creme (.25 oz.) - I didn't think I had a need for this because I have a nightly regime but I tried it anyway. I don't know if it will replace my night cream but I will use it from time to time.
Eye Creme (packette) (.067 oz.) - Now I'm 27yrs old and I don't have wrinkles so I don't see the need for eye cream at this time. I do however have small lines where the skin is tender under the eyes along with hereditary dark circles. So after about a week I realised that the lines were minimized and my eyes seemed brighter.
Full Size Lip Shimmer (.0975 oz.)- Just regular old Lip Balm :)!
Now let me remind you that everything here is trial size!

Big Pores are the Devil!

I recently noticed that my skin was a lot clearer Im guessing from increasing the amount of water I drink but for about the past week I had these unsightly black heads on my nose! I used this Clean ad Clear Blackhead Eraser and they were removed almost instantly! It opened my pores and cleaned them out but the next day I noticed my pores were HUGE! I began my search for another product that will minimize them and i decided to try Oil of olay pore redefining scrub. It comes in this tube with a twist off cap and the product leaves your skin feeling clean and tight. It did close my pores after a few uses.

Weight Loss Journey

Okay I know that I havent updated you guys about whats going on with the scale but Ive been so wrapped in life that I lost the urge to write. Im excited to say that since starting this journey Ive lost 21 pounds and Im still going strong! I have more energy, my skin is clear and I just love myself more for making this lifestyle change.

Smooth Away

I recently got this product from walgreens and I absolutely adore it!!! I hate shaving and wax tends to irritate my skin but I have found the perfect solution. All you have to do is rub in a circular motion and the hair definitely comes off immediately. Its even a small one for the bikini area included. The price? $9.99

Whats your skin like?

I always get compliments on my skin (even with no makeup) from strangers and Im always flattered by it. So I often wonder how long will my complexion be this way.
Do you know the saying just look at your mother? My mom is In her 40's and her skin is flawless!! She doesn't really wear make up other than lipglass and/or eyeshadow. Now that I have an active twitter account I've been talking to my beautiful blogging sisters everyday and one of my favorites the creator of "luxetips" gave me some knowledge. She let me know that its best to start taking care of my skin while im in my 20's!!!! She suggested that I try Lumene Beauty Drops. They are these little capsules that contain vitamin C.

Im so AMAZED by this product for several reasons but Ill only share a few. My face is so much softer and My skin just looks brighter. My man even said I looked Radiant. My main concern was I had no wrinkles and I didn't want to get any by using anti-aging products. But this is perfect if you just want a softer and brighter look then this is for you. For 22.00 at CVS you cant go wrong!

Diet Journey

So I'm finally finished with my slim quick cleanse and I must say that it may have worked! I say my have because not only was I taking 8 pills a day (too damn many) but I also changed my eating habits and actually did some exercise! I lost 10pounds this week and I'm happy about that but I will see this week if I just exercise and watch my food intake will I get the same kind of results. So please stay tuned!

Hair moment

Since I had a hair crisis on my birthday back in august and didn't know what to do I went into my local beauty supply looking for a solution. I purchased a half wig for about 65.oo and I wasn't disappointed! It blends in with my hair very well and Ive got a return on my money plus some by how many times Ive worn it. In the mean time my natural hair is getting a rest from chemicals, weaves and braids! I'm getting to know my "hair" again and I'm loving it!

New Year New Diet

I have started this 7 day cleanse to jump start my new years resolution to drop some pounds. I kinda hate that I committed to it! I saw it on a commercial and decided to try it and after reading the directions when I got home and realized that I have to take 8 capsules a day! I wasn't so pleased. But I'm a soldier so I can hang Ill keep you posted!
