Book Salon and Spa Appointments with MyTime App

Lavish Body & Home - my experience when using the MyTime spa and salon app via @agirlsgottaspa #beauty

Time is a priceless commodity these days. When you’re trying to squeeze in some me time, it can seem almost impossible.

I recently had the opportunity to try a new scheduling app called MyTime that you can book salon and spa (and many other services) directly from your phone or via the web. I’ll be honest, I usually do all the legwork myself from searching area spas and salons, to looking up their menu’s and pricing to researching reviews. Sometimes I’ll begin the process only to get distracted among all those steps and then put it off another day. Then that haircut that I needed at week 6 suddenly becomes week 10. (I get distracted really easily.) I was willing to give MyTime a shot to see how it all worked. Read more

Best Products for Curly Hair

These products will get you the BEST curls! via @agirlsgottaspa #beauty
Looking to embrace your natural curls? I’ve been on the hunt to find the best products for curly hair since forever. Below are some amazing curly hair products that I recently had the chance to test out:

One of my favorite curly hair product lines is called The Gold System, which was developed by Oprah Winfrey’s longtime hair stylist, Andre Walker. The Gold System contains a series of products specially designed for naturally curly hair. These products work together to create gorgeous curls without having to go to a salon.  The Gold System products include; the Ultimate Moisture Sulfate Free Shampoo, TKO Ultimate Moisture Conditioner, Beautiful Kinks Styling Crème Gelee and Get It Straight Styling Crème.  Combined together, the Ultimate Moisture Sulfate Free Shampoo, TKO Ultimate Moisture Conditioner, Beautiful Kinks Styling Crème Gelee left my curls moisturized, shiny, defined, bouncy and frizz free.  I will say that a little of the Beautiful Kinks Styling Crème Gelee goes a long way. I used the Get It Straight Styling Crème to blow dry my hair and this product was also a wonder! It took my curly hair to straight with shine, body and frizz free yet still looking and feeling healthy and moisturized. Read more
