  • The Fragrance Outlet

    Where do you purchase your perfume? I tried out the new e-commerce shop, The Fragrance Outlet, and was really happy with my experience! I don’t try new perfume often, so this was a big deal especially purchasing online. If you remember, a few months ago I was looking for new fragrance. Well, I never actually bought a new full size one because I get really overwhelmed when I think about going to a store to try them out. They last so long it’s such a commitment! Yes I’m being dramatic, but seriously it’s a chunk of money on a fragrance if you’re never going to wear it because you realize it makes you smell like your grandma. I could be scarred from that one time in college a guy I was hanging out with told me his mom and I wore the same perfume… To be fair it was Vera Wang Princess, and who hasn’t tried that one?

  • Reverse My Routine with TRESemme

    TRESemme Reverse My Routine

    I have been using TRESemme for years. I love the brand, and think it is a fantastic value for a great product. When Influenster sent me the new TRESemme Expert Selection to reverse my routine, I was so excited to try out another collection of a brand I know and love. I first attempted to reverse my routine after a day at the pool when my hair was tangled and messy. I have to tell you guys, it was amazing. I’ve never really thought about using conditioner first, but especially on a day like this, when my hair had tons of knots, I really needed to get them out before I could wash my hair.

  • Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask

    Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask

    Valentia sent me their Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask in return for my honest review, and at first I was a little unsure how I feel about it. I was very excited to try it out, but when I first put it on, it was a bit uncomfortable. After waiting for it to dry, I did get used to it and the discomfort subsided. I removed the mask and I am happy to report that I am pleased with the results. My skin felt smoother and tighter than prior to wearing the mask, and the tone seems more even.

  • HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Collection

    I recently introduced you to HASK hair products and now I am back with the HASK Bamboo Oil Strengthening Hair Care Collection. First of all, the bag they came in is adorable! “Life isn’t perfect but my hair is!” Bamboo is a natural product full of essential nutrients. This HASK Bamboo collection is rich in biotin and collagen, giving hair a stronger foundation, helping to protect against everyday styling damage. Since I do use a curling iron almost every day, I really need products that will help to protect my hair and make it stronger. In only a few uses I have noticed my split ends being repaired and less visible on the reinforcement side. On the nourishing side I have noticed my hair being shinier, softer and breaking less when brushing, which is usually a major problem for me. In addition to shampoo and conditioner, I received the deep conditioner and hair oil. The deep conditioner is fantastic to strengthen strands and repair split ends. I notice a difference in the feel of my hair and when brushing even more than after just using the shampoo and conditioner. As I mentioned last time, I am not a huge fan of hair oil, so I don’t have a lot to say about this one. I haven’t had any issues, I just don’t like using oil on my hair.

  • WHEN Mask Packs

    From an outsider’s perspective, fashion, beauty, and hair are one in the same. If you are interested in on or all of the subjects, you know that they are all extremely different and require separate skill sets to complete well. If you know me, you know that I love fashion, I love dabbling with hair, but beauty? It’s hard. There are so many products to choose from and it is difficult to tell the good from the bad from the don’t even try. I struggle with my beauty routine. I am in a rut with my make up and can’t seem to stick with a hair regime (although I have had major luck recently). Since teaming up with BrandBacker, I have had the opportunity to try out many products. I even joined Birchbox to try more samples! I tried out a mask that was a freebie in a box, and honestly it really turned me off of masks in a package. However, WHEN Mask Packs perfected everything that I didn’t like about the other one.

  • HASK Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection

    I have a confession to make. I color my hair (duh). So, not quite the groundbreaking confession you were expecting, but with colored hair comes a lot of upkeep. You have to maintain it by touching up constantly, listening to your stylist, and most importantly using the right products. I received the opportunity to review the HASK Kalahari Melon Oil Color Protection collection through BrandBacker, and I was thrilled with the results!

  • Valentia's Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum

    Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum

    Hi friends, happy spring! It is that time of year again. It’s time for bipolar weather, April showers, and humidity in the air hair. My skin (and hair) gets crazy in the springtime, so I am always on the lookout for a good product that will help keep my skin looking good throughout the season. I have worked with Valentia on a few other posts (see them here and here) and really enjoy their products, so when they reached out again and asked that I review their newest product, Clear Lift Revitalizing Serum, I was thrilled to try it!

  • MAKE up and cocktails

    MAKE Beauty and Cocktail Parties

    This week in Dallas is Startup Week. On Tuesday Social Revolt held a cocktail party at Tower Club, so a couple of blogger friends, Nataly and Crystal, and I went up to network. It’s always fun going to cocktail parties and events like these because you get to dress up a little differently than you normally do. I chose a cocktail dress, added a blazer for the chilly air, and my favorite black pumps (RIP-the puppy ate them the next morning) for a semi-professional cocktail look. OK, truthfully I was confused by the cocktail vs networking situation so I went with both. I want to thank MAKE for providing my eyeshadow and lipstick for the event!

  • RL Tender Romance

    Tender Romance by Ralph Lauren

    I have been yearning for a new perfume recently but have been avoiding going out to choose a new scent. It is really overwhelming searching for a new fragrance. There are so many options, but I don’t know how to describe what I am looking for. The funny part is you usually know what you don’t want, but narrowing down the one is really tough. So, when I received the opportunity through Influenster to review Ralph Lauren’s new fragrance, Tender Romance I was so excited! It was coming to me. I have used a few Ralph Lauren perfumes in the past and I really love them. I was thrilled for the opportunity to test the new fragrance of the brand I already know and love!
