sorta like the duty free

Hola pretty people!

One of the best things about reading blogs is learning about new things (websites, stores, products, styles, designs, ideas, etc.).  I am by no means an expert but through my own personal trial and error, I know what works for me. 

Here are my faaaavs from head to toe :


  • COLOR: My hair guy added some fun random color to my hair; but the brown? au natural. And the whole head of hair is mine too. 
  • CUT: I literally tell him "Victoria's Secret hair" (no, really, I do)
  • WASH: I only wash my hair every 5-8 days. When I do I use good 'ol Suave Daily Clarifying Shampoo & Bumble & Bumble Creme de Coco conditioner 
  • STYLING: When I do wash my hair, I do it at night and let my hair air dry. I try to stay away from the blow-dryer (evil!) And I don't really use any type of leave-in product. I find that it makes my hair sticky & heavy. I live and die by my curling iron (I rarely ever straighten my hair). I use a this 3/4 inch curling iron by Conair. 

  • HAIRSPRAY: Chi Helmet Head. Use it, it'll change your life. You're welcome.

sans makeup? don't think so.

  • FACE WIPES: I'm guilty of being a non-face washer (gasp!). I love these wipes (they're a-mazing) Lansinoh Wipes. (discovered them back when I was a nanny)
  • MOISTURIZER: I love my moisturizer. It has a 30SPF in it too so I especially love it in the summer. It's light-weight and really has helped with my face texture (good 'ol college days of fake'n bakin)
  • NIGHT CREAM: I try* to remember to put on my night cream & use Aveeno Positively Ageless 
  • UNDER EYES / BROWS: Aveeno Positively Ageless under eye cream.  You'll never catch me with fury eyebrows. (I get them threaded) but tweeze daily. 

i love picnik as much as i love all this crap

BODY: (sorry folks no picture of that, ha)
  • SOAP: I'm a bar soap kinda gal, My fav are Dove's. I love this Cool Moisturizer. 
  • BATH TIME: (me time, my favorite time) I am obsessed with Lush products. I'm a big fan of baths and go through their bath bombs like their the water. (little tip: I cut them in half & that way I get more than one use out of them!) I am not a perfume-y person. (it actually provokes headaches... bad headaches, that's another story) So these two are probably my fav (I may or may not have tried them all) because they have a light scent and aren't overwhelming. 
  • BUBBLES: The Comforter bubble bar is awesome, you just swoosh your hands around and presto! more bubbles. Really with the J&J's Bedtime bath I use it as a body wash & as bubble bath (I think you could wash your hair with it too, but I don't do that frequent enough, ha)
  • RAZOR: Shaving is not fun, but the Schick Hydro 5 is (and I use creme rinse as shaving cream)
  • DEODORANT: Dove's Ultimate deodorant. In natural. Really doesn't eliminate the look of 'stubble' (that's such a weird word)

visuals bc pictures are better than words!

  • PRETTY FEET: Life wouldn't be complete without pedicures. (I use this stuff with a pumice stone, take that dry feet)

Kinda feels like we shared a moment. Doesn't it? 
I mean when you get as intimate as a baths, soap and shaving... it's definitely a moment

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me. ;) 
(Is there where I make the disclaimer that I didn't get paid to promote/recommend any of these products? but hey! I'm not below doing so)

Totally feel like a facial now. Go be beautiful people.
