Signs That You Don’t Want to Be Happy…


unhappy-940x300


  • You keep becoming involved with emotionally unavailable men.
  • You keep taking on the role of being The Side Chick, The Other Woman, or whatever the kids are calling it these days. LOL
  • You go out with the Ass Hole Or the “Bad Boy” because you think they are more exciting.
  • You keep dating the same ‘type’ that makes you feel miserable and sometimes less than.
  • You meet a, “nice guy” who wants to treat you right and invest time in you and you say they are “Too Nice” or claim that it must be a front.
  • You want to be in a steady, committed relationship but keep sleeping around or being used sexually by guys, which eventually just breaks down your self esteem even more, which in return stops you from getting the relationship you may want (and deserve).
  • You get the opportunity to break up with the guy that is mistreating you, but you eventually take him back because you don’t value yourself enough and think it’s better to be with him, than starting all over.
  • You truly believe that it’s better to settle with anybody, than be alone.

Knappy Hair Extensions Initial Install (feat. Kinky Coarse 18″ Clip-Ins)


HairExtensions Install

Hey guys!!

So I got the opportunity to try out some hair extensions from Knappy Hair Extensions. I’ve never used clip-ins before so I was excited to see how I would use these.

To start off this set came with 9 clip ins:

  • 4 – with 2 clips
  • 2 – with 3 clips
  • 2 – with 4 clips
  • 1 –  with 5 clips

The set also came with 2 additional clips you can sew-in, if additional support is needed, weft sealer (which I did seal the wefts) and care instructions.

 

IMG_2135

I decided to use these clip-ins and install them all over my entire head, and have a little bit of leave out. and this worked out great. The style that I got was the Kinky Coarse 18″. Which was perfect. because it was just as long as my natural hair, so it was believable and not exaggerated, as you can see from the picture below.

 

Being that this is the first time I’ve used clip-ins, I was pleasantly surprised. If you want to see how I installed these clip ins, make sue to check our the video HERE.

Go check out these website for KRS Hair group: https://fbit.co/2ENl. They also offer wefts that you can sew-in, as well as closures, so you are bound to find something that suits what you are looking for.

Shielo Smoothing Anti Aging Scrub Review


Hey Guys!!

I’ve never to so excited about a skincare review…LOL But I am back with another quick review on the Shielo Smoothing Anti Again Scrub. I’ve used a lot of Shielo products over the years, they actually have my favorite moisturizer, which I did A review on back in 2014 (CLICK HERE TO SEE THAT REVIEW).

complexionscrub_2

Not this scrub did not disappoint AT ALL, and to be honest I didn’t expect it to. Shielo has always had great quality products. This anti-aging scrub is a clarifying exfoliant for all skin types (FYI, I have Oily Combination Skin). It has Aloe Vera Juice, which refreshes the skin. It also feature Jojoba Oil whcih contain fatty acid that revitalize skin using microspheres which are small and delicate. This is the main thing I look for in scrubs. I don’t like very large bead because they are too harsh and rough on my skin

This has quickly become my new favorite facial scrub to use before I apply makeup. It makes my skin very smooth and I feel refresh when I use it, which is the perfect condition for my skin when I want to apply makeup.

This Product retails for: $22.99

If you interested in trying this product out make sure you check out the Shielo website.

 

Sheilo Leave In Protectant Review


HEY GUYS!!

So I am back with anther review from Shielo!!

This time it is on there Leave In Spray Protectant. I’ve actually used this product in the past and just revisited it recently.

For me this is mainly to protect my a=hair during heat styling. It is a really amazing spray to use when I want a very light and fluffy blow out, and won’t weigh down my hair like creamier products tend to do.

I also like using this spray when I am doing some kind of roller set, where I sit under a hooded dryer. It offers up a nice shine while protecting my strands.

Here are the products claims: This antioxidant rich leave in protectant is designed to fortify every strand of hair, creating texture, as well as protect your hair from the stress of heat styling. Our unique protective complex with pro-vitamins, proteins and amino acids infuse hair with vitamins while providing UV protection. For deeper natural and color-treated hair color. Excellent in controlling frizz and detangling.

Which I must agree it does fully live up to their claims.

If you are looking for other uses for this products besides heat styling, I would recommend spray on your hair before going out in the summer to protect your hair from the UV rays, especially if you have color treated hair.

If you interested in trying this product out make sure you check out the Shielo website.

GlassesShop.com Review


Hey guys!!!

So I am back with another quick review. Today I will be reviewing a site called GlassesShop.com. This site offers prescription eyeglasses. I picked up a pair of their  sunglasses. Which I LOVE!They offer several different styles and they are available for both men and women.

IMG_0194Retouch

This is a great site to get cheap glasses . The also have a big campaign going on right now where you can get your first pair free (Just pay for shipping & handling).

Also keep in mid you can also get prescription sunglasses. This was actually big plus for me, because before I got my PRK Surgery (Lasik), It was so expensive to get prescription lenses (or lenses in general), so I glad that there were inexpensive options for eyeglass and sunglasses. Fernando will definitely be taking advantage of this site.

IMG_0200Retouch

And you guys know I can’t leave you with out a coupon code. Use Coupon Code GSHOT50 and you can get 50%off on eyeglasses or sunglasses with free lenses (sale frames are excluded from coupon). That is a great DEAL!!!!

So that’s it guys! Make sure to go check out the site!  The have glasses for everyone and every style you can think of. Don’t forget to tell them who sent you!

DevaCurl SuperCream Coconut Styler is Here! (+ Giveaway {Closed})


11379218_1025771354114815_1857442484_n

Last month I had the pleasure of attending a product testing along with other influencers for a new and exciting product from DevaCurl. I’ve used DevaCurl products briefly in the past, but I hadn’t use their products in a LONG while, not for any particular reason so I was very excited to hear and learn about their new product that was geared towards coilier textures, plus this was the first time a major company reached out to me for me to work with them!!

I had the chance to personally test and use the new SuperCream Coconut Styler, which was release on July 7th, and I must say I was really impressed. This NEW rich, coconut oil infused styler contains key ingredients like coconut oil for healthy-looking shine and moisture, jojoba protein to boost elasticity and strengthen curls, and corn starch for touchable hold and frizz control. As with all of Devacurl products, the coconut styler does not contain any sulfates, and is paraben and silicone free. Now you guys know anything with coconut I am willing to try.

I did arrived to the testing event with a fresh wash n go BUT, I really wanted to see how well this product worked on freshly washed hair and do a style that I would normally do, as a wash n go is not a hair style I do often so I asked to have my hair washed. Isabella Vasquez quickly No Poo’d my hair and told  me  she wanted me to use the SuperCream as a detangler instead. I was instantly taken back, I was like OK?!? I usually detangle with a conditioner and NOT a styler, so I was so nervous. But I did managed to detangle and twist my hair in under 30 mins. NO COMB.

I sat under a hooded dryer for about an hour or so, since I obviously couldn’t really let it air dry overnight, Unraveled  my twist and fluff up and picked the roots. I had shiny, soft, and a defined  fluffy twist out. Super Cream is EVERYTHING!!

DSC00914

It’s nice to see  Devacurl creating products for us 4 type textures because I was never drawn to DevaCurl because their products always seemed to be more geared towards looser textures and I just never really worked for me as my hair got longer, but now that they have this, They’ve gotten my attention. And I actually revisited some of their No Poo products and and Conditioners since trying the SuperCream and I must say I wonder why I stopped using their products, becasue they are really amazing.  I am definitely going to be trying this product out more and more and in different ways. I highly recommend you Guys try it and let me know below what you think!

They do have a few more products coming out in the fall that are all about moisture! So make sure to follow them on Instagram for upcoming products announcements @mydevacurl

GIVEAWAY TIME!!!  would like one of you guys to have the opportunity to try it SUPER CREAM. Here are the Giveaway Rules:

That’s it!! I will select a winner randomly.

Citrus Clear Review


image

Hey guys!! I am back with another review for the Citrus Clear Line. I’ve reviewed their products before, so it is a brand I am VERY familiar with the line. So let me jut jump right into the review.

I am going to start with the Natural Tahitian Lime Sensitive Wash. I used this was before in the past, and I LOVE it. the smell is so potent but in a good way. The lime scent is so divine. I like How my skin feels very smooth but not stripped.

The next item is the Grapefruit Acne Spot Treatment. Now I know grapefruit is rich with antioxidants and vitamins, so was very excited to try this out. Now I don’t frequent breakouts, but when I do I like to have a spot treatment on hand. This one is actually really nice. It dries up my pimples really fast which makes it a lot quicker for them to go away.

The Tangerine Tingle is a 2 for 1. You can either use it as an exfoliating cleanser or as a mask. I used it both ways. As a cleanser, its great, it is  exfoliating so it is stripping, but it is expected. As a mask, it wasn’t ok. It is more of a hydrating mask if you do it while you are in the shower, so it really helps open up you pores and get deep into the skin. Did I forget to mention the smell?? Well, it is bomb.com! Out of everything this one smells THE BEST!

Now I love a good mask and the Pore & Blackhead Extracting Mask is EVERYTHING! This is a DEEP mask, so I would not recommend doing it the day or week of a special event or wedding, because this literally pushes everything that is deep in the skin to the surface. So I will caution you on that part. The smell isn’t amazing, but it performs as it says.

Lastly is the Pink Grapefruit Sensitive Moisturizer. I have been enjoying this one. It is very lightweight so it is great under makeup. Even though it is lightweight it’s still moisturizing. Grapefruit is also high in Vitamin C and has anti-aging properties so it has amazing benefits as well.

Overall, Citrus Clear has yet to disappoint and this review is no different. The products are great and the price point comparable to other lines. Their line is free from harsh chemicals. Please make sure to check out Citrus Clear for some amazing natural skin care products .
