Give Your Hair the ThirsT it Needs

Sunday, December 10, 2017

The crossinnova is a fortifying quencher to lock moisture back into your hair. The formulated line of shampoo and conditioner are designed to hydrate and renew dry hair with it's blend of natural botanical and proteins. So, whether your hair is straight or curly, ThirstT Hair has your back!

To avoid your hair locks from looking brittle and dry, here are some quick hair tips:

1. Wash your hair less frequently
2. Use a Paraben and Silicone free shampoo and conditioner
3. Rinse your hair with cool water
4. Apply leave in conditioner

(Note: If you do not have thick curly hair,
I recommend to use small portions of the hair product
and increase as desired.)

As you can see, I took the opportunity rinse my hair in my bathroom sink with the shampoo and conditioner. And although it might of looked like a had a good portion control, I accidentally poured more than I needed, but I didn't let good product go to waste. After lathering my hair, I applied the natural leave in conditioner followed by two other styling products. My hair felt good during the wash, but after applying two additional styling products, it did feel a bit dull. Perhaps, next time I need to change the hair styling products, so it can work cohesively with the crossinova shampoo and conditioner.

An Everyday Cozy Style

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

Fall has finally arrived in California!! I was so excited to step outside and feel the chilly weather on my skin and see my goosebumps become visible. Even though there were no fall leaves on my yard, I still took a minute to enjoy the trees transition into fall season. So, today's inspiration was a cozy and simple look with two of my favorite items by March Fisher  and Betsey Johnson. To be quite honest the pearl shoes and artistic purse made the outfit 10x better.  The idea behind this look was to make it fashionably cozy and simple to get some holiday shopping done.

I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving break!!

Impressive Yellow Pants

Friday, November 24, 2017

Wearing yellow pants can sometimes be a bit challenging, but when you have an instinct about trying something new rather than going with the black and blue traditional pants; then I say, go for it!  One of the selections I love to wear to work are the Old Navy's pixie pants selection because it provides a variety of print and color pants that make you feel bold, confident and comfortable. Most of all, I get to mix and match the pants to create looks for work or my fashion blog. Below is a quick fall fashion inspiration look, hope you enjoy it!

Brow Lounge

Do you have virgin eyebrows? If you answered yes or no, it doesn't matter because if you're in need of a little brow self care, I have just the spot for you at the brow lounge. I recently came across the brow lounge this past Sunday and experience the services first hand. But, before I start sharing my experience; let me just tell you about a couple things I've tried in the past. Threading and Plugging.. Ouch! Yes, at least for me it was. I never got use to neither of them because of the simple fact of how sensitive my skin area is around my eyes. I often found myself with teary eyes, redness and feeling discomfort during the process. Was this right?! most likely not, but at least for me, I dreaded the idea of thinking about it.

Just recently, I was invited to go to the brow lounge in La Jolla and I was excited to try something new, but I was a bit nervous. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. However, when booking the appointment for an 11'clock, I was pretty open minded about trying a new location. So, with that said, I found myself checking in as a first timer at the brow lounge. When I arrived to the appointment, I was greeted by a lovely receptionist who explained a small consent that I needed to sign to receive the services. After I submitted the consent, I was then introduce to Dafne Ruiz, a licensed esthetician (aka a brow artist!). Dafne was kind, easy going and made the whole process a memorable one.

See the clip below for a quick glance at service.

Thank you Brow Lounge for my fabulous eyebrows!

Fall Fashion Trend

Friday, November 17, 2017

Fall has become our favorite fashion season because of the simple fact that we get to strut in booties, long sleeves, sweater and scarfs. I mean it's sweater weather...right?! Well...maybe not just yet in California, but we love to take every opportunity to dress like it. Although, we haven't hit the cold front yet, I was inspired to create a fall fashion look that involved layering a long blue dress with a long white sleeve and black short booties. Last, but not least, add two simple accessories such as black sunglasses and a belt.

Now, your ready to go enjoy the weekend!  

A Dolce & Gabbana Night

Monday, November 13, 2017

Hello Everyone, I am back after taking a long break! To be honest, it's been a transitional month for me personally with my health, work and new home. But, I am glad to be back to continue to share real life experiences as well as fashion, beauty and lifestyle tips. So, to get things started on the right note, I want to share my most recent birthday experience because I am feeling confident again.

Stopping 90 % of hair damage before it happens..

Sunday, October 1, 2017

There are so many shampoos available in today's market that I often find myself lost in the aisle trying to select which one is better. After seeing a couple of options, I decided to try out tbe Dove Intensive Repair duo, since my hair at the time was suffering from dry damage hair with no solution. After a couple weeks of using the product, I can honestly say my hair has improved in texture and it no longer feels dry and coarse.
