Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Collection

How much do you follow hair trends? Non-traditional color seems to be very on trend now, but with my career I have to keep things pretty traditional. I mostly wear my hair straightened and occasionally I will add some big voluminous curls. No matter how I wear my hair I want it to look healthy and have movement. With the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil collection I got both of those and more.

Pretty & Polished Fall Collection (Partial)

Press Sample
Fall is one of my favorite seasons, but it starts a little later in the South. It's hard to get into the fall mood when temperatures are still hitting mid 80's. Today I have two of the six shades from the Pretty & Polished Fall Collection. I have already worn both shades more than once, and anticipate them both getting some more use from me in the weeks to come.

Refresh Skin Therapy Fruit Acid Peel Review

Press Sample
I have mentioned in past posts that around Septmeber of last year I had a very bad reastion to a skin product I was testing. That reaction included a very severe breakout and I was left with bad scarring and hyper-pigmentation. It has taken months to get my skin back to a normal state and I am still fighting with the hyper-pigmentation. and some severe dark spots. Around January of last year I visited my dermatologist for some help and she suggested I do a few chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments, in addition to some products she prescribed. I have had chemical peels in the past and although they do yield fairly quick results, there is some down time. I wasn't in the mood to deal with the monster face skin for a week or two each time after a chemical peel so I decided to forgo them this time and use other methods that don't show results as quickly.

Mia Mariu Microdermabrasion Set Review & Giveaway

There was a time when the thought of playing around with any type of at home skin treatment frightened me. Now that I am more comfortable and kowlegable about skin care I feel better diceiphering what I can tackle at home and what needs to be left to the Esthetician. With the latest products on the market I feel comfortable doing microdermanbrasion at home, and in fact it's a regular part of my routine. For the past few weeks I have been testing out the Microdermabrasion Set from Mia Mariu

Marika Magic Slimming Capri's

For the past few months I have been back into exercising regularly again. As we role into the cooler weather months it is getting hard and harder to get up early but I am staying focused.  Comfort is important to me, I invested in some new sneakers and slowly I am expanding my workout wardrobe. Depending on the workout I am doing loose fitting pants are not always the most appropriate, leggings or capri's work better for yoga, barre, pilates and even biking days.  I tested out the marika magic slimming capri's and I am happy to report not only were they comfortable, they kept all my jiggle in place.
