Herbal Essence Set Me Up Gel Review

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Hey Beauties,

I'll admit I have a roaming eye when it comes to hair products and even when I find one I love...I'm always looking for the next best thing. Yep, I've been cheating on this next product for years but I always come back home. I love me some Herbal Essences Set Me Up gel...and (I hope) I always will!

Herbal Essences Set Me Up Gel ($3.50 for 6oz.) is described as a "humidity-resistant, max hold hair gel with a fusion of cactus flower & bamboo" that "will shape any which way with luscious shine" and "maximum strength hold so your style won't stop until you drop." I LOVE this gel. It's super slippery, has a nice medium hold on my curls and smells wonderful!

I've got the flu...and some exciting news!!


Hey Beauties,

Sorry for my absence...I've got the flu and it sucks! But, I do have a bit of happy news...

I just scheduled my first curly cut at Devachan salon! Yaay! I have heard great things about this place and I can't wait until my appointment next month. I'll keep you posted on the results.

Later Beauties!

Reshma Femme Henna Review

Thursday, April 10, 2014





















Hey Beauties,

I try to do a henna treatment every three months or so to keep my hair color vibrant and my curls smooth and strong. My henna day was fast approaching and I needed to replenish my stock, so when I received a big box of goodies from Reshma Femme it could not have come at a better time.

Complete Henna Process in Pictures!


























Hey Beauties,

I've been a henna head for years and today I wanted to share my process in pictures!  If you're thinking about trying henna, click HERE for an excellent and in depth e-book from hennaforhair.com. Let's get started!

What is henna powder and why use it on your hair?
Henna, lawsonia inermis, is a plant that grows in hot, dry climates and has been used for thousands of years to color hair and make it healthy. Henna powder is the finely milled leaves of the henna plant and it's used to make a paste for hair treatments.


My mix:
300 g body art quality henna
3 cups green tea (3 tea bags)
1/4 cup lemon juice (bottled)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

What you'll need:
plastic bowl w/ lid
rubber spatula
Saran wrap
plastic caps

Maybelline Color Elixir By Color Sensational Review - Nude Illusion, Fuchsia Flourish, Signature Scarlet

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

 Hey Beauties,

I'd been eyeing the Maybelline Color Elixirs since they were released last fall...so when I saw them on sale I had to snag a few. These are the drugstore cousins of the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stains and Maybelline promises "the color of a lipstick, the cushiony care of a balm, and the glass shine of a gloss."  Let's Review!

First off, Maybelline really showed-up with the selection...a full range of 20 colors including creams and shimmers! I settled on a nude, a fuchsia (my go-to) and a red to start.

What's For Dinner?...Brussel Sprouts!

Wednesday, March 26, 2014






















Hey Beauties,

I know brussels sprouts are the quintessential hated veggie, but I LOVE 'em! I eat them at least once a week and I'm gonna show you how I serve it up.

What you'll need:
8 large brussels sprouts
1 tbsp light butter
Salt & pepper to taste

Hey Beauties,

When I first started my healthy hair journey, natural hair blogs were extremely helpful, but navigating through countless sites was time consuming and a bit overwhelming. Enter The Natural Hair Blog Directory!

This site was created as a guide for the newly natural and long-time curlfriend alike. Curly blogs are compiled and organized according to curl type and texture, so you can read all about natural haircare from curlies who know your hair struggles...and joys!

If you're a blogger, you can join the site to increase your readership or just connect with other bloggers and readers. Love it!

It's an awesome site, so check it out and tell a friend, tell a friend!

Tipsy Tuesday! - Quick & Easy Moisturizing Hand Treatment

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Hey Beauties,

Keeping my hands and cuticles moisturized has really been a challenge this winter, but one thing that's worked for me is this quick and easy treatment. It's so effective and uses items you probably already have in your cabinets. Let's go!

What you'll need:
Petroleum jelly
Plastic gloves

What to do:
Wash your hands with soap and warm water and pat dry. While your skin is still damp, smooth on a thick layer of petroleum jelly paying special attention to your cuticles. I love the Vaseline Rich Conditioning Cocoa Butter version, but any petroleum jelly will do.
