This post was sponsored by Amopé™ as part of an influencer activation for the #AmopeCrowd and Socialstars™. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, but all opinions (and sandal-ready feet) are my own.
Florals and citrus, a shorter hairstyle, light breezy dresses, sandals…warmer weather opens the doors to both shed our winter layers and reveal some skin.
Depending on how you look at it, this can be a welcomed change, or something that you dread. I used to be embarassed to wear sandals or my favorite flip-flops out in public. It always seemed that no matter what I did, I could not reign in the cracks on my heels or the dryness on the tops of my toes. (Please tell me I’m not alone.)
Sure an amazing pedicure at one of my favorite local spas would whip my feet into shape, but only for a short time. As much as I enjoy time at the spa, it’s not always in my budget and sometimes I just can’t swing my schedule. So finding the right products to get that spa-worthy pedicure at home is something I’m always on the hunt for and I think I finally found the right mix. Read more
This is likely the only time where you hear me rave about tea. I’m your coffee-obsessed kind of girl, but this hair care line by Pai-Shau based on a proprietary blend of concentrated steeped teas, is making my life right now.
Pai-Shau is a vegan and cruelty free hair care line that marries an ancient bathing ritual from Vietnam with modern day science. I received Pai-Shau’s Replenishing Hair Cleanser and Supreme Revitalizing Mask (from their Hydrating Ritual) and Biphasic Infusion (from their Enhance Ritual) to review.
Having never heard of this brand, I held no expectations – which honestly, is the best thing to have, because I was totally WOWED. Read more
I’m sharing #MyOliaStory as part of a Garnier® sponsored series for Socialstars™. All opinions and hair color are my own (well… the hair color is Garnier®.)
Looking to lighten, brighten or darken your natural hair color without the eye-burning smell of the chemicals involved?
That’s a common theme among at-home hair coloring kits that we all cringe about – literally. That toxic smell while coloring your hair.
I haven’t colored my hair in about 2 years due to pregnancies and I’ve been tired of looking at the strands of gray and dullness of my hair. (Sometimes I wear the tired mom look like a pro.) With an 8 month old as my sidekick these days, getting out to the salon isn’t easy. Using an DIY hair color is a good option, but my #1 MUST – I did not want that ammonia smell for Ethan and myself to take in.
Enter Garnier Olia®. Olia has 60% oils, no ammonia, and natural flower oils, and there is ZERO eye-stinging smell – I mean there is literally none. Read more
Smooth as silk… that’s one way to describe how I’d like my weathered skin to feel.
But what if you want to accomplish that without an ingredient heavy product (some of which include chemicals that I can’t even pronounce), is that even a possibility?
I’ve used Silk Therapeutics before, so when they asked if I wanted to try their Purely Smooth daily firming complex, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. And by the way, Purely Smooth only contains 5 ingredients. Unscented is: water, silk, Vitamin C, rosehip oil and sodium anisate (a natural emulsifier), while Lemongrass swaps rosehip oil out for lemongrass essential oil. Read more
