A while back I was in ULTA and I saw that güd conditioner was on sale. After hearing so many naturals rave about it I picked it up. I REALLY didn’t like it – it didn’t have any slip imo – so I gave it away. Then I picked up some Suave conditioner which also gets a lot of raves in the natural hair community. Continue reading

I hope everyone is wrapping up a wonderful week (I sure am)! Tuesday I hosted Curlfriends Swap Party and it was so much fun! (Recap next week.) I was nervous – like I always am lol – but it was great. The ladies all said they enjoyed themselves and were so amazing. Continue reading
As some of you may remember, the first week of 2013 was Wealth & Wellness Week here on the blog. We talked about setting and reaching goals, creating a vision board, saving money and getting organized. Today I’m here to check-in and update you all on how I’ve been doing and I hope that you will update me as well (leave a comment).
This year I have hosted four Curly Card Nights, one Let’s Thrift and one Curlfriends Swap Party. I have attended one blogger conference, one women in business conference and several panels. In addition I have been drinking green smoothies more regularly, I am slowly switching transitioning my hair and body products to all-natural/organic (I’ll talk more about why in a later Continue reading

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I’m getting ready for Curlfriends Swap Party next week and I’m so excited!

A few weeks ago I received a box of Mary Kay products courtesy of Influenster to review. Influenster is an online community of influential people. Your influence is measured by your social media presence. You gain points and badges by answering questions, reviewing products you’ve tried and completing brand challenges. Essentially the more you participate the higher you rank.
This is my 3rd or 4th box (check out my last Vox Box here). I was surprised when I was contacted because with my schedule I’ve been too busy to interact as much as I used to. But, I was definitely excited. I completed the survey and received the tracking confirmation a few days later.
We received mascara, eyelash primer, gel eyeliner, lipstick and a brush that can be used for eye shadow or concealer. The items are all really good quality and came beautifully packaged.
Did you receive the Mary Kay Vox Box? Which was your favorite product? Check out Influenster here, if you’re interested.
Happy Friday, beauties! For the past few years I suffered from adult acne. Up until my early twenties I rarely had a pimple – so it was quite devastating for me. Now that I feel like I have gotten it under control I want to share what has worked for me. These aren’t the ONLY products I use but these are the Continue reading

Julep Maven is a monthly nail polish subscription service. I’ve been a member for a year and a half now. While I love the service and customer service I DON’T order a box every month. What I love about Julep Maven is that you can skip any month without penalty and resume the following month if you like. Continue reading

Welcome, July! This year is moving really quickly and I’m loving it. Still a lot to do but I’m also getting a lot done! I hope everyone enjoyed the Holiday.
Starbucks Phone App. To know me is to accept my coffee addiction (even if you don’t understand it). I never liked coffee. I mean I hated it. And then Continue reading
