THRIFT STORE FINDS: GROOVY BABY

The weather is getting warmer, but not warm enough for me to wear shorts. So on my way to brunch on an 88-degree day, I wore a spaghetti strap cami top with wide-leg jeans, tan suede wedges, and a cream color bookbag purse to carry my belongings. This 70’s inspired outfit was a show stopper and a great transition from a hot day to a cozy night in late spring.

Sidenote: You notice that I tend to go to brunch a lot, but that is all it is to do during a pandemic.

OH MY GOODNESS, OH MY GARDEN, THIS IS GOOD!

OH MY GOODNESS, OH MY GARDEN, THIS IS GOOD!

Recently, I went to the hairdresser this past weekend to get a ponytail for my recent photoshoot, and Boy, was it laid! My stylist used Got2BGlue hair spray to accomplish this slick look. And I did not have to worry about frizz or flyaways. Got2BGlue got the job done, but my hair was stiff, crunchy, and flaky after a couple of days. For the first time in my life, I tried out this Shampoo Bar from Oh My Garden to get my hair back to normal. Although, I was skeptical at first because I am use to using shampoo out of a bottle. After looking at the ingredients, I realize that it wouldn’t hurt to try it—Friday morning after an excellent workout. I gently rubbed the shampoo in a circular motion until it lathers in my hair and massage the ingredients into my scalp and repeat a couple of times until I felt comfortable washing the product out of my hair and following up Deep Conditioner; my hair felt squicky clean. This shampoo bar dismantled any flakiness I received from the Got2BGlue hair spray and added shine to my hair.

And Viola, my hair is back to its natural state, and I love it! I would recommend this shampoo bar solely based on its ingredients. OH, MY GARDEN is made with organic ingredients that don’t dry out your hair and gently cleanses and nourishes the hair and scalp.

My Favorite five ingredients
Macadamia See Oil – helps add shine, strengthens, and nourish hair follicles. fights hair loss
Mango Seed Butter – softens dry hair, reduces breakage, and smooths split ends.
Coconut Oil – moisturizes hair and reduces breakage.
Chamomile Extract – strengthens hair and protects it from easy damage.
Tea Tree Leaf Oil- soothes an itchy scalp, reduces dandruff, prevents excess oil production, and stimulates the hair growth.

THRIFT STORE FINDS: 80’s Baby

On Friday, we celebrated an 80’s baby birthday. While the rest of us were trying to find loopholes in hanging out during the pandemic, this 80’s baby has safely been quarantining with her family all year long. So when she said that she wanted to have a Birthday dinner, none of us hesitated to come out to celebrate her born day. In honor of this great 80’s baby prodigy’s Birthday, I wore baggy yellow high-waisted harem pants with a multicolor mock-neck crop top and block heels and added a red purse to finish the look.

Happy Birthday @kirsmedia

DERMA-E MICRODERMABRASION SCRUB

DERMA-E MICRODERMABRASION SCRUB

I can’t stress enough how important it is to exfoliate twice a week. I reviewed top-of-the-line exfoliators, and it’s safe to add Derma-E Microdermabrasion scrub to your “products to try” list. Some of you may be familiar with the benefits of exfoliation. If not, here it is; Exfoliation removes dead skin cells and promotes skin regeneration. Derma- E Microdermabrasion Scrub is unique because it buffs the skin and reduces the appearance of acne scars. This product comes in handy for those who struggle with oily skin, primarily through the warmer months when you are more than likely to experience breakouts. It’s amazing how this product includes prominent ingredients found in your kitchen cabinet, like dead sea salt to slough off dead skin cells and removes toxins from the skin, while the Grape Seed Oil kicks in to revive the skin’s complexion. After one night of using this product, I woke up the following day to smooth and silky skin. I gently apply the scrub in a circular motion to cleansed skin for one minute, then wash it off with lukewarm water, and apply Mad Hippies Vitamin A Serum to close my pores.

My Favorite Five Ingredients:
Kaolin- removes impurities from the skin and absorbs excess oil to help reduce breakouts.
Grape Seed Oil- nourishes the skin.
Sweet Almond Oil- Soothes and conditions the skin.
Jojoba Seed Oil- moisturizes the skin.
Dead Sea Salt – exfoliates and buffs away dead skin. Detoxes the skin leaving it feeling smooth and renewed.
