When using the shampoo and conditioner, apply it to the ends and comb through with your fingers. Let it sit for 3 minutes, and then rinse. You will notice a huge difference in your hair after a week.

I have to share how amazingly happy I am with what I do! 3 years ago I came up with the idea to start my own blog! Wow! How I’m glad I did! I love the saying.. Do what you love with no regrets! That’s so true except I regret not starting my blog earlier! I can’t believe what my blog has accomplished in 3 years, and SO much more that I want to do. The best part? The relationships and the campaign partnerships that I have made along the way. The best aspect? It keeps growing. I’m loving it, and am so thankful for all my friendships I’ve made! So many amazing things coming. Thank you for all your support!
The season for giving is here and I wanted to let you know on some amazing stocking stuffers that are perfect for your beauty minded friends. It’s always great to get those last minute pick me ups to add a little fun to any stocking. These are some of my favorites that I just can’t live without.
Nars concealer- NARS concealer is the perfect concealer. It controls the under eye area from dark circles and is great to use around the nose and above the lips for some more coverage. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love a great concealer. This is the perfect size that you can throw in your purse.
Tom Ford Patchouli perfume- Awe how I love the smell of this. I get compliments on this all the time. It is light enough to where it gives off the perfect aroma. It’s not too much or too little. Tom Ford has always made everything he touches classy. This is no exception. They make this in the perfume roller too that can easily be useful for travel.
Bare mineral foundation powder- I can’t tell you how much I love this foundation. It’s so light that it feels your not wearing anything on your face and gives you a very natural glow. The new packaging is gorgeous and comes with a cute little red bow around it. You can’t go wrong with this foundation.
Becca pore less refining creme- Becca products are amazing. I found this out when i attended workshop with them last year. Their products are made very well and this creme literally looks as if you have not one visible pore. Who wants pores right? Why not cover them with the best?
Tarte palette- I can’t tell you how great it is to find a great palette that you can work with everyday . This palette comes with some gorgeous eye colors, and a blush and bronzer. Palettes save you on time and money. You can travel with multiple makeup items in one.
Buxom mascara – Buxom got their name right with their products. This mascara makes your lashes look lush and as if you are wearing fake lashes. The miniature samples are great.
VIktor and Rolf perfume- I have this perfume as a mini so I can travel easy with it. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer. This also comes in perfume roller.
These items can be picked up online or at any ulta or sephora store!
