Update/Hair Stuffles!~ ^ↀᴥↀ^

Sorry for the lack of updates, Life has been a bit crazy. I hope to get more things done and stop procrastinating so much (Fingers crossed hehe). So I thought I'd leave you guys with a few new hair care products I've purchased from Anunaturals!
(I won't be able to direct link to each product sadly (; ˃ᆺ˂))

This was my hair after using the products listed below! I also twist the hair after applying products to get a more defined look and to help combat frizz. If you want more definition I highly recommend twisting the curls especially if you are going out. (Click here to see how to twist your hair.) 

Vanilla Cupuacu Daily Hair Lotion

Now this one is my favorite out of all of the things I got. It smells like candy and is a thicker consistency, which I prefer for my hair. It's easy to comb or finger through your hair. It gives you nice moisture without weighing it down and of course you smell like a gum drop which is all the more reason to try this stuff!

Murumuru Leave in conditioner

This stuff is amazing and It smells extraordinary. As you know I am all about the sweet stuff (๑→‿ฺ←๑) so when I popped this bad boy open and rubbed it in my hair I was in heaven. This product is watery but can change in consistency due to the hand made nature of the products. Mine happened to be watery. Which I didn't mind, other than the slight mess of trying to get it into my hair without it slipping out of my hand and onto the floor. Other than that it's great stuff and I recommend it for my curly haired gals.

Mint Butter

Now this product I could do with or without. I like it don't get me wrong. It has a medium consistency not too watery not too thick. It has a nice minty smell, as you might guess from the name hehe. But it didn't feel like I needed it as much as the other two products. Maybe had I not already had a leave in conditioner and a lotion It could of had more use. But it was nice to have a tingly cool sensation on my scalp from time to time, but unless you have a really dry scalp or need that extra moisture for your hair I'd say skip out on this one (Or better yet try the Cupuacu butter so you can smell like a candy factory. ʕ→ᴥ← ʔ )

So that's all for me! I'll probably show some my gift's and share in the merriment that is the holidays! Thank you for having patience with me being soooo slow to update.
~As always have a wonderful Holiday/Amazing week! Good vibes until next time.~

September Graze Box Review!~ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ

Hello again everyone! Welcome back to another awesome Graze review.

The Chili lime cashews are awesome! They are exactly what you'd think a hint of lime and a slight kick of heat from the chili. I'd love to just order these alone!! Please Graze let us buy the snacks on their own, cause these are amazing.
The other snack is Peachy Orchard. Now this has peach drops, rhubarb & pear pieces. The pear is just awful in it. It doesn't taste like a pear at all, the texture isn't the best and the after taste is even worse. But the peach drops and rhubarb are spectacular. They make up for the pear being total booty hole. The peach drops are chewy & sweet. The rhubarb is different it looks like a piece of stem you'd probably cut off and throw out. It's slightly gummy and VERY sweet I really like it! 

The sesame garlic crunch is pretty good as well. The oat bran sesame sticks are a bit bland, I could see throwing them into a Asian style salad, but alone they are a bit drying. The Multi grain soy crackers are much better than the sesame sticks. They would be bomb with a nice hummus.

Now the banana caramel dippers are another story. I'm not a huge fan of banana and it's a huge bummer because they are so good for you. If you like bananas and caramel this is gonna be amazing for you. It tastes JUST like bananas and has a nice crunchy crumbly texture. The caramel taste well. like caramel! This wasn't my favorite but again would be great for anyone who loves bananas.

That's it for this one guys and I hope you enjoy the review.

Living Libations Haul!

Hello again! I'm addicted to Living Libations after the two products I got and decided to get a couple more.

I got the Blemish bundle which comes with Seabuckthorn best skin ever, Zippity dew dab, and a Organic Hemp cloth.

The Hemp Cloth is amazing to say the least. I might buy another one so I have one for my face and one for my body. It gives just the right amount of exfoliation and isn't too harsh for your skin. I want to get a beach towel sized one it's that awesome!

I've reviewed the Seabuckthorn best skin ever recently, but to add on I highly recommend it. It's amazing for a face cleanse or to pamper your body after a shower or bath. It makes your skin feel so soft and it's a real treat! I'm so glad I found a cleanser that doesn't dry my skin out and is a multi-tasker.

Now the Zippity dew dab I just tried for the first time and let me tell you the smell is VERY strong. This stuff will clear your sinuses and make sure everyone stays a good distance away from you. It's a spot treatment for acne, and a little goes a long way. I've been using this stuff for about a week and a half now and it seems to work great but hopefully i'll see better results as my skin gets used to it.

I also got the Dew Dab not to be confused with the Zippity dew dab! The Dew Dab is for acne scars, discoloration, acne, tiny lines, cuperose, and little bumps. This also has a very STRONG smell, but not as bad as the Zippity dew dabs. The texture of it is amazing. It feels like silk gliding across your face. As with the Zippity dew dab a little bit goes a very long way. My skin looks better my acne scars seem to be a little faded and I hope with more use I'll see greater results.

Last but not least I got the Zen Shave, which is a shaving cream. Again this has a decently strong smell but not bad like the others. It's more on the menthol side. It doesn't foam up or lather when you apply it, but I think that's a good thing. It's actually very moisturizing when you do go to shave with it. You can also rub it into your skin if you are shaving outside of the shower or bath, which I find awesome. My shave did feel easier and less cuts than normal! I'm terrible at shaving. I always find a way to nick myself so I wanted to try a product that might help reduce that. This is a nice product, a little goes a long way. The texture is nice and it does feel like it makes a nice smooth canvas so your razor can glide. My skin does feel very soft after using the Zen Shave softer than when I use conventional shaving creams or gels! The price isn't the best but not the worst, I bought the 8 dollar 25ml size and I can see myself getting a few uses out of it even though it is smaller. The hair on my legs doesn't seem to grow back in as quickly or coarse as well so another plus for this amazing product.

I hope everyone has a great week/weekend! Good vibes until next time!

August Graze Box Review!~ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ

Hello! So my awesome friend Arturo used one of my codes to receive a Graze box, and in turn I got one as well! Here's another review of this amazing box.

First and foremost let's just take a minute and take in how adorable the box is! Lil ice cream cones adorn the top of this box and it's just so cute.

The first snack in the box are the Booster seeds. It has sunflower, pumpkin, & flax seeds in it. They are plain seeds, but packed with flavor and nutritional goodness! Containing vitamin E, Zinc, Iron, and some Calcium! I love to snack on seeds so this was right up my alley.

The second thing I tried was the Strawberries & Cream Granola topper. My last box had a granola topper in it that I did like, but this not so much. I love the granola and the dried strawberries. Just not the yogurt balls that are in it. I don't hate it, but I definitely don't love it either. I will probably trash this one for next time.

The next snack is Salted Fudge & peanut cookie! This stuff is awesome! The cookies are so crunchy, sweet, salty, and have a great fudge flavor. The peanut & redskin peanuts are awesome too. Great flavor lightly salted and the redskin peanuts add a nice different taste. I don't know how to describe it but it's good to my palate. The little vanilla fudge is very different. It's almost like pure sugar. You get a slight taste of vanilla with the lil squares that packs a punch of sweetness. Very tasty snack!

Last but definitely not least, the Thai sweet chili bites. This is my favorite thing in the box so far! It's so good. Crunchy sweet & spicy my favorite combos. I would buy the baked soy bites if I could they are that amazing! Then top it with the great lil sauce and you are in heaven. The spice in the sauce isn't that hot, it's more like a kick at the end of eating it and it fades away as quick as it came. Ten out of ten would devour again!

So that's it for this box! I hope you all enjoyed the review!

Living Libations Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever Review!

Hello everyone! I've been using the Seabuckthorn Best skin ever for about two weeks now and wanted to tell y'all what I think of it.

So I'm becoming obsessed with Living Libations. It's a great company, with amazing ingredients! I haven't tried anything from this company that I haven't loved. My skin looks and feels so much better from the two products I've bought from them.

So the Seabuckthorn is like an oil, and you can apply it in different ways which is awesome. The bottle says to take a wash cloth wet it, wring it out, and then put some pumps of the Seabuckthorn on it. I love doing this after a shower on my entire body. You feel so silky smooth and clean. It has a very unusual smell but not in a bad way. It's actually quite nice. You can exfoliate with it or you can use it as a moisturizer.

I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good all in one product! It's good to moisturize, exfoliate, and as a after shower oil. I like it because unlike other products that you can use all over, it's not drying. It leaves you feeling & smelling great and smooth as I don't know what!

If you are on the fence about trying Living libations, head over to the site and look around for products that may fit your needs!  Click here to view it!

I love the smell, I love the way it glides onto skin, but best of all I love the ingredients!

Ingredients: Seabuckthorn Berry Oil, Golden Jojoba OilVirgin Coconut OilTamanu OilLavender, Vetiver,  Grapefruit, and Palmarosa.

I hope you guys loved the review! Have a great week and as always, good vibes!

Silky Skin Custard Review~!

 I've heard a lot about Silky skin custard from various sources. So I wobbled over to their website and ordered some! I'd like to share with you what I thought about it.

First and foremost it's an amazing product. When it arrived in the mail it was melted, which was to be expected it's been around 88-94°F with 50-88% humidity where I live. I promptly placed it in the fridge so it could solidify. Once I had showered the stench of the day off, I grabbed my skin custard and applied it to areas I felt needed a little extra love. The smell isn't the best. It's earthy and not in the best of ways, but you can tolerate it. It glides onto the skin and absorbs so well its just heavenly to rub into your skin! Boy when I tell you I've seen results, I mean I'VE SEEN THEM! It's only been a week and It's insane to say the least. I want to scream from the top of every mountain for everyone to try this product. It's that great. Now it is a smaller jar, and a bit expensive. It's 20 dollars, but with how much my skin loves it, i'll have to grin and bear it! It does sell out rather quickly sometimes, I had to wait a month to finally order mine.

I know a lot of men and women don't like to talk about it, but we all have imperfections! Stretch marks are quite normal. This custard works wonders on them. So if you are unhappy with the appearance of your stretch marks or have a few new ones coming in, this is great to try out. I'm really happy with how it did on my stretch marks and how it's made any part of my skin feel so supple and soft. It works great for your elbows as well!

I think everyone should give this product a try. It did wonders for my skin and my lil feeties too! The ingredients are awesome and no animal testing! One of the ingredients is even love he-he :3.

Ingredients: Love, Raw unrefined african shea butter, Organic coconut oil, Pure vitamin E, Cold pressed olive oil, Green tea extract, Essential herbal blend
Organic/No animal testing

Until time next  <3 have an amazing day and as always good vibes!

Discount Shopping! Sorta...~

So, I'm not the savviest person in the world, but I do shop way too much online and would like to share some of my favorite websites to snag a decent deal on!!

My favorite site for clothes is usually Asos! You can find just about any style or brand on Asos, and for a reasonable price most of the time! You can also shop for your spouse, friend, anyone and everyone! They have almost every brand even high end, which means when things FINALLY go on sale you can nab some higher end goodies for a good price! If they don't sell out that is. (★ゝω・)b⌒☆

My second favorite site is Gilt! I think most people know about Gilt but if you don't.. SHAME!!! It's the BEST website for ANYTHING. You can find things for parents to be, home decor, bath essentials, desinger bags&shoes, and even food deals. If you haven't already go make a Gilt account, you won't regret it. Even if you don't buy anything, you'll have fun seeing all the insane things that pop up everyday.

My third site is going to be Myhabit. Myhabit is just like Gilt, deals everyday dealing with women's, men's, home, and even food deals! Myhabit uses your amazon sign in as well, which makes it so easy to sign in and use. So many gorgeous items and a lot of good sales. Just like Gilt you can get awesome deals depending on the sales for that day! Definitely check out Myhabit!

The last site I will leave you with is Tobi. Tobi is a site I've just recently discovered. The sales are ridiculous, things ranging from $1 to $117. Now obviously the $117 is out of the question, but what I do is set it to Lowest to Highest price. I'll stop looking when I reach a certain number, say $40-50 dollars. It makes finding a deal quick and having a price point will help you from staring at the expensive items and knowing when to close the site when you've reached your budget point. There are some gorgeous items for dirt cheap, $1 accessories and $10 tops. What more could you ask for?

I hope you find this helpful and find some amazing deals! Always remember outlet stores are great, but be careful! Some items are made specifically for the outlets and are cheaper quality. Also check the sale racks at Macy's, Dillard's, Nordstrom, Nordstromrack, and Bloomingdale's. For they can also be your best friend.

As always, Positive vibes! Till next time.

Curly Hair products!

What's up everyone! I'm back to go over a few products I've loved for my curly hair and some I've absolutely hated for my hair as well.

First and foremost, everyone's hair will like something different! Just because one product doesn't work for me, doesn't mean it can't work for you! So always experiment with what works best for YOU.

At $20-24, Paul Mitchell's The Conditioner has a lot of product coming in at 33 ounces! It's a leave in for pretty much every hair type. It claims to put a protective coat on your hair and moisturize as well. From what I've experienced with this product, it will leave your hair crunchy and smelling pretty good, but doesn't put any moisture into your hair. I liked it because for one you can get a big bottle of this stuff for the same price you'd pay for a tiny amount in another brand. Secondly while it does make your hair crunchy, I live in a humid place, so having a little hold in my hair helps with frizz. This will always be a go to if I can't find other products or want to spend a certain amount, it lasts a LONG time even with me plopping half the bottle into my palm.

At $20 the Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner is pretty pricey and you don't get a whole lot of product. It's 10 ounces for almost the same price as the 33 ounce Paul Mitchell. It's a creamier product that goes into the hair well. It's been better than the Paul Mitchell as the product doesn't crunch up my hair as bad, which is pretty great considering I have no clue what i'm suppose to do with this wild mane I have on the top of my head. I don't know if I can tell you to go out and buy this product, for it's VERY expensive for such a small amount. But if you have shorter hair I can see how it wouldn't be as bad. My hair when wet is down to my bum, so I need a decent amount of product and it needs to be a good size bottle, so I don't run out in two weeks.

At around $10-14 the Shea Moisture Jamaican black castor oil hair serum isn't all it says to be. This wasn't the best oil I've ever tried nor the worst. It made my scalp itch a bit when I first used it, which was strange. I don't feel like it really helped moisturize my scalp, help my hair grow, or strengthen it for that matter.

At about $12 the Shea Moisture Jamaican black castor oil lotion was another product I picked up. Now first things first the smell is pretty good, it's like artificial vanilla. It's a cream sort of like Mixed chicks and like mixed chicks it's not bad but not amazing either. I like this a bit more than the mixed chicks. I'd say nab this before trying the mixed chicks. This is 8 oz compared to Mixed chicks 10 oz. So it's a better buy and around the same consistency, the Shea moisture is just a little more watery.

 Coming in at $43 is the Moroccan Oil treatment. This is probably the best product I've ever used in my hair. If you need some moisture to your scalp & hair this is great stuff. It is a bit greasy, but I don't mind because for one it's an oil, and another; it smells great, and leaves my scalp and hair moisturized with a nice shine!

Also I recommend Moroccan styling cream! This stuff is awesome. It is a bit expensive about 33 bucks for the bigger size. It has a nice consistency, smells lovely, and goes in the hair well. For 10.3 oz it's an ok size, I wish these products were a bit cheaper because I'd buy them all the time if I could afford to.

 Kinky Curly Knot Today comes in at $10-13 depending where you buy it. It's a very strange product. It's like a clear gel but doesn't apply like one. I don't think it helps with de-tangling, at least not in my case. It also leaves the top of my hair crunchy if I do apply it all over. If I focus it in the mid section of my hair to the tips it leaves my hair soft and smelling pretty good. The smell is also strange it's almost lemony but not overpowering by any means. It's not that bad and it does make my hair a little bit smoother.

I also tried the Miss Jessies curly pudding and it's horrible... It's also $22 for 8 oz which is just a giant rip off. I don't know what else to say. It was horrible to put into my hair, it provided me with 0 benefits and felt cakey on every part of my hair. I got this as a gift from an old co-worker of mine she also gave me a few samples from Miss Jessies, but after trying this and two other samples, I just didn't bother with anything else in the bag... I don't recommend any of the Miss Jessie products.

 At $9 Luster's Pink Oil Lotion. My mom used this in my hair when I was a kid and I continued to use it up until I was around 19 years old. It's not a bad product at all! Now it did weigh my hair down, but it was never crunchy or dry! I just repurchased this and it's just like old times. Not the best but not the worst by all means. If you need a go to you can find all of the time, I do suggest trying this!

At $15 is the Fekkai Essential Shea Conditioner. It's one of the best conditioners I've ever used. It left my hair so soft and manageable for once I was in utter disbelief when I first tried it! My friend Amber sent me a sample of it, and I was hooked. It smells almost like bubble gum, and feels amazing in your hair. I HIGHLY recommend this. Especially if you haven't tried it out yet!

The Fekkai Shea Butter Moisturizing Hair Conditioner is also a product my friend Amber sent me! It is also amazing! Either one of these conditioners is going to be lovely. I favor this one a bit more, on account that it did help with my frizz especially with it being summer time! Definitely try this one out, you won't regret it.

$16 Dr. Bronner's Fair Trade & Organic Castile Liquid Soap. This is another product you'll hear everyone talking about. I just picked this up and, it's pretty good. I don't really care much for the peppermint scent after you've washed it out of your hair. It leaves a weird after smell that i'm not too fond. All in all it's a decent cleanser. It leaves my hair a bit weird feeling, but I think i'll just use mainly on my scalp! For the price it's not bad, seeing as you get a ton of product. A little goes a LONG way. You only need a small amount and it will lather up like crazy. I recommend this for when you have a lot of build up in your hair and need to cleanse well.

Last  but not least is the Curls Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste. Now I've heard a lot about this product from a lot of curly haired girls on youtube. I'll start off by saying THE SMELL IS AMAZING!!!! I smelled the Blueberry scent as well and it to is lovely. Now it's a jelly like consistency not quite like gel but close. I used it to smooth down new growth and some frizzier parts of my hair. And I have to say for being almost like a gel, my hair isn't crunchy at all. I think this is a good product if you are looking for a decent amount of control for certain areas. Now it doesn't keep your hair where you want all day like a gel does, but it does keep them managed and soft!

So that's about it for now! I hope this has helped any of you curly haired ladies out there and hope you can find some products that work well for you as well. Also if you have any product suggestions I'd love to hear them!

Until next time. Positive vibes everyone!

Living Libations Rose Cellular Renewal Firming Fluid review

Hello! I'm back to tell you about a great product from Living Libations!

I've been using the Rose Cellular Renewal Firming Fluid for about two weeks now, and it's made my face feel softer and helped when I get acne flare ups. It's calmed the redness from the acne flare ups and general skin irritation that I get with having sensitive skin.  It absorbs VERY quickly into the skin which is amazing, because most products I've tried don't absorb well. It smells very earthy, you get a lot of the frankincense and rose -- which, at first, I didn't like; but after two or three uses I started to enjoy the scent. When you apply this fluid your skin is going to DRINK it up! You will be shocked at how fast it goes straight into your skin. It does sometimes feel a bit sticky; not horribly so, but you can feel it just a tad.

I use it every night after cleansing my face. Depending on how my skin is, I will use either the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser or Neutrogena complete acne therapy system Cleanser. Both of these cleansers are a bit drying for me and I'm still on the hunt for a great cleanser, but I digress. After washing my face I apply around two pumps to my face and neck area, I tried one pump but I felt like it wasn't enough product.

I don't see a huge improvement in any of my acne scars, but hopefully with more use I will! I do, however, FEEL the difference in my skin texture. It's smoother than before and doesn't feel as oily after I apply this. Also I've seen a huge improvement in my pore size around my nose! That to me is already a winner winner chicken dinner.

So if you're wondering about trying something new, like I did, this is a good product to try out! Depending on what you are looking for, and what benefits you want out of a product. Also, I'd like to say when it arrived at my mailbox it was very well packaged! Included is a protective cap on the pump of the bottle so none accidentally spills out on it's way to you!

It contains - Organic fresh aloe vera, rose hips; jojoba herbal infusions: calendula, comfrey, grapefruit, roses, horsetail, rosehips; cell revitalizing essences of: Frankincense, immortelle, seabuckthorn, rose otto, schizandra berry, geranium, roses over geranium, ylang, neroli, grapefruit, carrot, lemon, tansy, tea tree; sage, rosemary antioxidants

I'm looking forward to trying more products from Living Libations! I will definitely do more reviews when I have another chance to splurge!

As always, have a lovely day & Positive vibes for now!
