Shopping Score!

Since my hair is a natural hot mess and typical drying time is about 22 minutes, plus straightening, which could take up to another 45 minutes, I bought myself a new blow dryer. I decided to spring for the Farouk Chi Blow Dryer, which is the same one my hair stylist uses when she attacks this fro. It works fabulously! I'm able to cut back drying time by about ten minutes.

A Picture Is Worth A Million Words

My husband came home with this for me today. WOW! I have been hinting (okay, begging) for this camera. I've always loved photography. Now if only I could get out to take a class to learn about the thing!

Beauty Secrets

Over the years I have spent thousands of dollars on beauty products. Makeup, hair products, teeth whiteners, lotions, potions, you name it, I've tried it. Here are a few of my favorite.

I love anything Redken, especially Glass.. it really gives my hair a healthy shine.

Kenra makes my favorite hair spray. It doesn't make my hair crunchy or sticky and the best part of it is that it smells AWESOME!!Moroccan Oil is one of my must haves! It smells great and leaves my hair soft and shiny.

During an unfortunate hair minfortune my stylist gave me this Toger Masque.. It wasn't cheap but after all the chemicals put into my hair during a 24 hour period it really did the trick.
Awhile ago I was looking for some info on DYI hair coloring. This was during the time I decided to go Pamela Anderson and bleach my hair to a crisp. It was pointless though because my hair grows so fast that by day three I has massive black roots. So anyway, upon browsing information on the internet I came across Killer Strands. A few products that worked to turn my around around from nasty/fried/hay-like^^^

Take it from someone who has had many many babies, theres nothing better for your skin than Cocoa Butter or Vitamin E. I use Bio Oil right when I get out of the shower everyday. It prevents stretch marks and it dims the ones that you already have, some of my existing ones are totally unnoticeable after having used Bio Oil. It also works great on scars!

Sadly, I am one who needs to have a nice tan, even in the winter time. This tanning lotion is one of the best. I normally look for a new one each year but I'm sticking with this one for now since its able to give my pale complection a nice bronzed glow.
