Clear, Glowing Skin with SheaMoisture Mud Masks

In the skin department, Summer usually means oilier than normal skin for me. Which also means clogged pores, and at times, acne prone skin accompanied by dehydrated and irritated skin thanks to time spent in the sun and insane amounts of sunscreen. One of the best ways that I deal with summer skin Read more

Revlon Luxurious Colorsilk Buttercream Haircolor Review



I’ll be straight with you, I haven’t had the time in my schedule to cut my hair since September or October of last year. While I desperately need one, the one trick I know that makes people think that I did cut my hair, is to color it. Have you ever done this? I know I can’t be the only one!

I tried to capture the complexity 0f this polish but my camera skills are lacking. Suffice to say the bar glitter, sparkle and density of Ruby Ribbon is stunning and it definitely looks like a much more expensive polish.  Read more
