Beauty

I’m looking at feedback from my reader survey and many of you have wanted to know what I really use each day, not sponsored, not promoted, but legit what I use for my face, body, hair, and makeup. My beauty routine is often changing; I get bored and well, I get paid by a brand to try something new. These are my favorite beauty products right now, and nope, this…

Since I wrote my post last year about dealing with hair loss when over 40, many of you have asked me to write a follow-up with what I am using now.  I just re-read that post from April 2017 and my routine has changed and I have tried many products since.  A recap of what I have tried and whether they worked or didn’t.

Summer Summertime Essentials

Beauty shopping tips

Summer is here, and boy did it slam us here in DC. Less than a week ago I was shivering in a coat and today it’s 85 degrees. While I transitioned my wardrobe from winter to spring/summer a month ago, we’re now heading into weather where jeans and short sleeved sweaters sound like utter torture. It got me thinking about my summer essentials, pieces I go to every year that…

My Favorite Hair Products and Tools

Beauty

Since cutting my hair above my shoulders last January, I’ve found my hair easier to manage, look fuller, and more fun to play with. However, it took a while to get used to shorter hair and I realized my old styling products weren’t cutting it.

That mascara that dreams were made of, the moisturizer that truly did transform, the hair product that finally made tresses manageable. Many moons ago, I spent a ton of money at Sephora, CVS, and Nordstrom looking for my own personal HGs but rarely gave any product the time…

Friday Favorite: Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

Friday Favorite

Years ago, there was a big difference between drugstore beauty products and that of department and specialty stores. Consistency, longevity, ingredient list… you got what you paid for. No more, when many drugstore brands have better ingredients, better manufacturing practices, and make their products often in the same factories as their more expensive sisters.
