Summer Faves

Summer Faves 2015



This summer I picked up a lot of beauty and non beauty products that I have been loving this summer. For the non beauty products I recently have been loving my pink Camelbak Water Bottle its perfect on the go and I can just toss it in my car or bag. Also I have been loving my Starbucks cup not only is it a funky bright color for summer but it also keeps my drinks cold for a long time. Bath and Body works products have been my go to scents  I especially love the Hawaii scented lotion and since school been out I now have time to take long relaxing baths. At night I like to use the Sleep with chamomile and vanilla from Bath and Body. The smell is divine and puts you in a more relax mood. At Walmart and Target I found these cute little bracelets that you can stack or they were only a dollar. They had different animal shaped beads that came in a solid color or multi-color. I choose to get the elephant , turtle , and owl in white ,grey, and lilac purple.  Also you have to keep your legs shaved I have been using Nair  and EOS both are great products and I will defiantly recommend to people who have sensitive skin like I do. My last favorite is the Dove Cucumber Deodorant where I live its super hot so you have to a strong deodorant that can mask the smell while also preventing you from feeling sweaty. I hope you enjoy my summer faves.

Fall Natural Hair Must Haves (Blogtober 17)

Lately I have been experimenting with different hair products to provide the right moisture for my hair. Today I will be discussing some of my favorite natural hair must haves for fall. And with the weather changing I normally keep my hair in a protective styloe for the most part. 
1. Coconut Oil - I love to seal in the moisture with coconut oil .  Its affordable and last a long time , a little goes a long way.  2. Castor Oil- Every night I love to massage my hair with castor oil , to promote hair growth and stimulate my scalp. 
3. Conditioning Grease- I use a small amount to add moisture to my hair and my hair stays soft and moisturized.  4. Gel- I use the Shea Moisture to lock in the moisture and this gel does not flake up either. 5. Conditioner- For conditioner I use the Tresseme brand  , its affordable and does the job.
I dont like to use a lot of hair products in my regimen and I normally will wash my hair once a week and moisturize daily . What are your favorite hair must haves…

Blogtober 12 Fall Bucketlist and Aspirations

Here are a couple things I want to challenge myself to do this fall. I really want to get into the habit of making goals(bucket list ) of things I want to achieve and vision myself doing it. So without further ado here are some of my ideas for my fall bucketlist and aspirations :
1. Have a Disney Halloween throwback marathon of all my favorite childhood movies. And if you want you can do it with friends while baking or crafting.
2. Go to a pumpkin patch , I know this is kind of cheesy but I really want to take pictures in the pumpkin patch. And also go through a corn maze and pick out pumpkins. Here in Arizona we have an Apple Annie's and during the fall they have a variety of fall festivities going on.
3. Get into the habit of reading more, I feel like majority of the time I spend way to much time on my cell phone or to much watching tv. Its a nice treat every once in a while, and I feel like reading help you to be intellectual because you are learning new words.
4. Go for eveni…
