My 2016 Beauty Essentials

The past few weeks have been particularly stressful but there are a few things keeping me going: mostly BEAUTY PRODUCTS! Or as I like to call them, my beauty essentials.

Here are my 2016 beauty essentials, in no particular order.. (more…)

A Homemade Sea Salt Texturizing Spray

With my recent hair makeover, I’ve had to look at new ways of styling my hair, as opposed to the twisted messy top knot that I had pretty much perfected.

Having short and fine hair, it’s important for me to get as much body and texture into my hair as possible.

I recently tweeted about my latest flare up..
