Natural Hair How-To: Fix Your Wack Conditioner Fix Conditioner 1 (1)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.

Wealth & Wellness: Mid-Year Check-In Wellness Check-InAs 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.

First Impressions: Mary Kay Vox Box #MKGlam

Vox Box - Mary KayA 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.
