CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN: SEPHORA

When in doubt, go Sephora! I don’t know any girls who don’t like makeup, but there is always an exception! That’s fine, b/c Sephora carries a ton of other products such as perfume, body washes, creams and shampoos; in a nutshell, it’s a pull proof Christmas shopping destination!

NIUCOCO

Best.Shampoo.Ever! Here’s the deal-O: I wash my hair pretty much every day b/c its super thin & gets greasy fast. But washing hair so often dries out the scalp so I’ve been having a sort of love/hate type of relationship with lots of shampoos I tired. Yes, they provided volume but at the cost of dry scalp – but then I discovered this NIUCOCO trio and I must say I am impressed!  NIUCOCO Hydrating shampoo: Finally something that really works! As the name says, it hydrates the hair & scalp!!! I washed my hair everyday for two weeks and no signs…

SUMMER SHADES

New Season = New Makeup! Light & natural colors, that’s what Summer is all about, and this new collection from Jouviance is right on trend :) Jouviance Due Bonne Mine (color Tendresse): Perfect combo of terracotta bronzer & fresh pink blush! It’s hard for me to find the right bronzer, they usually look orange and uneven on my skin tone, which means I only have 1-2 that I like and hold on to for dear life, lol!  This will be my 1rd for sure! The bronzer blends it perfectly with my skin and the blush adds that needed flush. I…
