You know, I just love trying new products. Stuff that I wouldn't necessarily try unless it just so happens to appear in a cute little box, in sample size, once a month. Which is why I love BIRCHBOX! **I get Ipsy too...but that's for another post on another day** I typically drool over skin care and fragrance products however the hair care products I have been receiving are AWESOME!
In April I received Love Shampoo by Davines and Conditioner. This particular product is for wavy or curly hair--which I have bone straight hair but I still loved it!! My hair and scalp felt super clean and soft after using. This month, in my May Birchbox, I received two hair care products. At first I was like, "really?? I don't need two hair care products!!" But I take my thoughts back!! After using Beauty Protector: Protect&Detangle and Protect&Oil--I am SOLD. My hair feels salon soft and has a pretty shine!! And lets just talk about the scent of these products....OH. MY. GOSH! Heavenly. Sweet. Intoxicating.
In other exciting new (besides loving my soft, salon like locks) The past few weeks have been crazy busy and awesome for many different reasons. I've squeezed in visits with two of my favorite girl friends! Good medicine for the soul. One visit was action packed excitement and catching up at an Angels baseball game while the other was over a late night into the wee morning hours talking "girl talk" followed by a homemade breakfast and trip to Sephora for a total makeover and beauty haul!
Alright, can we just talk about these manicures I've gotten over the last couple of months? (seen in product photos above) First I am a total copy-catter. I admit it. I see something cool on IG, FB or Pinterest and I copy it. LOL. The first manicure, with the gold foil strips...I saw a similar version on IG.The IG-er had vertical strips across her nails. Some nails had one strip while others had multiple. When I showed the lady that did my nails she asked if she could change it a little bit. I was like, "why not?!" I love her "spin" off the picture and the cool designs she created on my nails. Simple and cool. The second mani look was a copycat from IG too!! Okay, so i'm not super original when it comes to nails!! Awk!! This one was inspired off a picture posted on Peek Beauty's IG. I copied it identically...it's so simplistic and pretty and perfect for super duper short nails like my own!! And those cute little gold grommets!! Where do you get your nail inspiration?
Finally, just for a random close...I have to share my Trader Joe's find this week. Mint Watermelon Tea. I made a sun tea out of it and I was obsessed for three days straight!! Even after I realized it's a BLACK tea--which means it's caffeinated. I was wondering why I was still wide awake at 1am on a Monday night still sipping on my iced tea!! Yikes! That was not a fun Tuesday morning for me!! Still, the tea is perfectly flavored with hints of watermelon and mint. I don't sweeten my tea but even if I did, this tea does not need anything added to it. I'd pour myself another glass right now except that it's already after 8pm and I really shouldn't drink caffeinated beverages after 2ish--especially with my sleeping problems!! Ugh! But seriously, do yourself a favor and get the tea. You can thank me later :) So from hair to besties to prom to manis to iced tea...this has got to be one of the most ADD posts I've written. Thanks for reading and hanging in there with me!
