My 5 Beauty Must Haves for Winter

Hello Readers!

Here in SoCal, we are starting to get some cooler weather! The weather has fluctuated so much that the feeling of cold weather is a relief. As many of you may know, the cooler weather means less moisture. I have decided to stock up on some of my winter favorites (just a few), that I like to use to keep my skin moisturized.

I’m sharing a few items that I have purchased from Ulta.

  1. dermalogica intensive moisture balance-much needed facial moisturizer, especially in windy areas.
  2. Soap and Glory The Righteous Butter -having skin that almost feels like velvet is a must.
  3. Ulta relaxing bath bomb-I use these to wind down after a busy day of work or just to relax after all the holiday festivities (sometimes I add coconut oil to my bath also).
  4. Philosophy Hand of Hope Hand and Cuticle Cream-keeping your hands moisturized is essential to avoid cracked skin and dry cuticles.
  5. Bare Minerals all over face warmth-since the sun is limited for most of the winter, and we often stay indoors when it’s too cold, applying all over face warmth gives you a natural sun kissed glow.

****You can find these products at your local Ulta store or on****

XOXO Until next time

My Hair Mishap

Hi ladies!

So last week I went to the salon to get my hair done. I went in asking for rose gold balayage but……….let’s just say it was a disaster. My hair was literally a mixture of purple, red, gold, yellow and orange. As I washed my hair a few more times, the color faded more and more and became more and more orange!!!I was so upset but I just accepted it.

I went 1 whole week with a hair color I hated. I had to wear my hair in a bun (which is not bad) but considering I paid a significant amount to get my hair done, I should have been comfortable with styling my hair any way.

I called the manager to speak about my concerns and they kindly offered me a refund and the option of fixing my hair. However, I just no longer felt comfortable with leaving my hair in the hands of the stylists that messed my hair up. She actually also told me that the way the stylist did my hair was not right and that she should have explained the process to me from the beginning. I was so disappointed. 😔

So the moral of my story is to be very carful when letting someone style/color your hair. Ask as many questions about the process so that you are sure that the stylist will be able to fulfill your hair dreams. I have definitely learned from this experience and will be extra cautious when thinking of a hair color change. I really hope this has not happened to any of you before. It is really an awful feeling and you just don’t feel like yourself when your hair does not look right.
