Design Essentials Coconut & Monoi Review & Demo

Hey luvs!
Tonight I want to share a review and demo I did for Design Essentials. They sent me some products from their Coconut & Monoi line and I had a lot of fun styling my hair with them. 


Check out this gorgeous hair I achieved with their Deep Moisture Milk Soufflé and Deep Moisture Oil Treatment.


I wore these curls for a casual day out with my sister and nieces who came to visit last week. They were pretty much EVERYTHING!

Bantu Knot Out With My September curlBOX

Hey luvs!

I hope you all are doing well.  Late last week I dove into my September curkBOX which was full of products by Lottabody.


Four full size products plus some other goodies all for just $25!! The value of this box from month to month is seriously amazing.

I decided to go for a bantu knot out using most of these products and of course filmed a demo and review. Before we jump into the video, here is a look at my bantu knot out results. 


I achieved the perfect balance of texture and curls! Click here to see how so got this look.

Planner Power

Happy Monday Beauties!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Outside of some family quality time and an amazing church service, I spent a lot of my time planning for the week with my new planner by   ban.do.

I’ve been looking for a really cool planner to help me keep track of life and I found it during my NY trip in Macy’s!  I am loving this planner. Every time I open it, I get excited about planning. It has tons of fun stickers, a secret meaningless but super cute code, and lots of motivation! Take a look at all of this coolness.


From, upcoming blog posts, YouTube videos I need to film, Zavien’s baseball games to date nights, I’m putting everything in this planner. The idea is to be productive and not just busy. So, here’s to being more organized and having more fun getting there! 

You can find this super cool planner here.

XOXO,

Argan Oil Wash & Go

Happy Friday luvs!

I just wanted to share the deets on a wash and go I did earlier this week that was everything! Here are the products I used.


Seriously, I discovered a new way to obtain a bomb wash and go using these products but the star of the show was definitely this product right here.


The original leave-in conditioner by Cantu has been a staple of mine since the very beginning of my hair journey so when so saw this Argan oil version, I had to try it.  I am so glad so did. Look at this hair!

So in love with this hair. If you want all the deets on how I achieved this wash and go, click here


Have a great weekend!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

Good morning Beauties,

Today I wanted to share a beauty product that I’ve recently tried and am loving!  If you’re anything like me and do not clean your makeup brushes every day (I clean mine weekly) finding a brush to apply your foundation daily without a ton of product buildup can be tough. I know all about this struggle! From the standard flat foundation brushes to the round flat foundation brushes, the product buildup in the brushes just makes the application process thick and not at all smoothe. That’s what lead me to Walgreens in search of something else. 

And because Walgreens never disappoints me, that’s where I came across the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. The #1 branded makeup sponge!

  
I hadn’t previously tried a product like this so I was anxious to see if I experienced the same thing.  I am so excited to say that despite applying my foundation every day for a week without cleaning the sponge, my application process does not at all feel thick or cakey with this product. It’s also super easy to clean. I just use soap and warm water.

Although I primarily use this product to apply/blend my foundation, you can also use it to highlight & contour.

  
The flat edge side also works really well for perfecting. 

   
 
I am seriously loving this product! Of course I have a demo for you. If you’re interested in seeing how I use the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge click here
