Sephora/Urban Outfitters Haul

Image
A nice vignette of my Sephora and Urban Outfitters haul. I will be returning some stuff to a different Sephora.  The one on 14th was horrible.  I'm not even going to go there. It's unfortunate that one of the most prestigious beauty companies in the world have people working in them who belong in a McDonald's.  I've been to many locations in Manhattan that I would not shop at again. Very sad. Especially when you are spending a lot of money.  Any who, I loved Urban Outfitters natural beauty line. Their clothes are way too west coast hippie for me. But the perfume and sprays were all organic so I was in heaven! Can't wait to go back. The one in the city is actually open 24 hours a day.





I'll let you guys know when I exchange my Sephora items. I will be switching exclusive to Ulta.  Nicer people.

New Target Bistro Set

Image
Happy Tuesday all. I'm currently cycling as I'm writing lol. My birthday was Saturday so I been a but M.I.A. I wanted to catch up and share a beautiful Target Bistro Set I found for my balcony. It was part of my birthday present. I have been on the hunt for years for the perfect set. One that would be sturdy. I'm 6 flights up and it gets very windy up here. One that looked visually appealing. One that was waterproof. Rust proof. As well as comfortable chairs and a big table to eat on. I have a very big balcony. Its pretty much an extra room. Usually the sets i would find were small and flimsy. Well this one was all of those things and more. It is so comfortable.  The table is big. I can't wait to use all year long. I want to get some new lights for outside as well as a new outdoor rug.You can order online if interested.  Hope you all have been having a good March.

Garnier Whole Blends Hair Care Review

Image
Happy Thursday all. Sorry it's been so busy here this month. I hope you are all doing well. I have new reviews to catch you up on.
I received samples from Crowdtap and Garnier for their new Whole Blends hair care line. There are three different varieties that I was given to try. All of them are healthy formulas with good ingredients for your hair as well as being paraben free which I love.

1)Coconut water & Vanilla Milk (Hydrating). This one was my favorite. I absolutely LOVE the scent first off. It is so good it lasts all day. The shampoo made my hair so smooth, which never ever happens using a shampoo I was shocked. Nice foaming lather but didn't feel stripped like usual. The conditioner was the perfect consistency. Not too thick and heavy, but not thin either. Definitely my hair felt nourished. Quenched. Revived. I love this combo. I am definitely buying the full size bottles. I give a 5 out of 5 coffee cups.

2) My second favorite was the Honey Treasures shampoo (Rep…

L'Oréal Paris Advanced Oil Hair Review

Image
Hey guys. Hope you are all enjoying a cold Thursday afternoon. I have another review for you guys courtesy of Loreal and Influenster. I received the shampoo, conditioner, and serum for free. I was really excited to try but unfortunately this one was no good for me. As you can see in my before and after the shampoo does smooth your hair. For me it was too much "oil". I first just tried the shampoo/conditioner/serum. Then without either product to produce better results but no luck. It completely weighed my hair down. So much so I barely could do anything with it styling wise. Forget about using the serum. My hair turned really greasy as the day went on. I always have had good luck with Loreal hair care products so this was a downer for me. I guess the oil was just too heavy for my hair. I will be giving this away. The shampoo literally feels like you are putting oil over your hair. There is no later. The conditioner was okay. It didn't really get my hair that smooth whic…

Secret Outlast X-tend Review

Image
Hi guys. Another review I have is for the new Secret Outlast X-tend deodorant.  If you have a busy active lifestyle like I do, you will love this deodorant.  Keeps you protected all day. No white residue on your clothes. Solid bar. Fresh light scent. I give it 3 coffee cups out of 5. Try it out and let me know what you guys think. My only criticism is new different scents. **I received this product free for testing purposes from Crowdtap**

Amope Pedi Perfect Wet&Dry Rechargable Foot File Review

Image
Happy Tuesday all! It's the first day of March. I can not believe that. My birthday month. My 30th birthday is on the 26th. Not sure how I feel about that one lol. It's exciting and scary at the same time. I feel like I will blink and then I'm going to be 50. I always put so much pressure on myself so I try and take it one step at a time and just be thankful I am well. I am healthy. I have accomplished a lot at my age. I am married to a wonderful man. I have a great family. And just leave it at that right. Who knows what the future holds?

So one of the benefits of being a blogger, is belonging to amazing websites such as Crowdtap.com. I was able to receive a free Amope pedi perfect wet/dry rechargeable foot file to review for free. Say that ten times fast lol. I wanted to do a review because it is absolutely amazing. I will try to compose my thoughts the best I can since I am excited!

Ok. First things first. It is completely easy to use. Upon un-boxing it already comes wi…
