My 3rd Day Curly Hair Routine With The Doux

Hey guys! So guess what, I’ve found a hair care system that works perfectly with my fine loose curls! The Doux is a hair care system for curly and straight hair. What I love about the product is how fun and full-of-life the system is. From it’s 90s inspired hip hop theme to it’s vibrant scents that leaves your hair feeling and smelling great. Check out this awesome review I did on the products and let be sure to share your thoughts with me.

Although all of their products are phenomenal, my absolutely faves were the Sucka Free Shampoo, the Fresh Rinse Moisturizing Conditioner, and best of all, the Mousse Def Texturizing Foam.

By the way, The Doux can be found at your local Target. If you’re unsure of which target near you carries it, click the link HERE to find out.

Last-Minute Holiday Gifts with Sephora inside JCPenney

Christmas is just two days away, people! With all of my wedding planning going on, I’ve completely lost focus and have fallen behind on Christmas shopping. The other day I was in JCPenney grabbing a few last-minute things and wandered right into Sephora inside JCPenney … talk about convenient. While stocking up on some of my favorite beauty items, I noticed they had super affordable last minute gifts that came in handy for some of the beauty lovers on my shopping list!

Triece, my sister, is a huge fan of fragrance and she never buys it for herself. This means that she waits ‘til Christmas and expects for someone to gift her a new perfume every year. Sephora inside JCPenney happen to have the new Dior “Miss Dior The New Eau de Parfum” … and I can’t wait to surprise her with it. The scent is so fresh and airy, perfect for every day wear! 

Next on my list was MYSELF. Haha, yes, it’s okay to gift yourself for Christmas. Call me selfish but, with my wedding being a few days away, my skin needed an emergency treatment. Which is why I scooped First Aid Beauty’s Mask Diaries. This gift set includes the hydrator Ultra Repair Cream, a redness reducing Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask, brightening Facial Radiance Intensive Peel, and the 5-in-1 Bouncy Mask. Realistically … this gift could have easily gone to someone else but, I couldn’t resist treating myself this holiday season!

If you’re anything like me, then you understand I’m probably an over achiever. This means anytime I holiday shop I like to buy a gift that anyone can use. Ole Henriksen’s Glow Away With Me is one of those perfect “extra” gifts that anyone can be gifted and can use. So, it’s perfect for that house guest who pops up when you were least expecting company. The cleaning cloths really come in handy for the beauty maven on the go. Plus it’s rich moisturizer is compact and cute making rich skin possible even on the go! So, honey this is a must on your last-minute shopping list, and it’s only $12!

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 12.52.14 AMSo if you’re anything like me, you fell into the “MAC is the best” trap a long time ago. There was one point in which I would buy a few MAC lipsticks (16 bucks a pop) a week because I didn’t believe anything else would compare… but that got old quick! Since those naive days I fell in love with cheaper brands like Wet N Wild, NYX, and anything else I  stumbled across that was just as pigmented. Here are a few of my favorite DUPES this fall… and honestly I prefer Revlon’s Shameless and Wet N Wild’s Cherry bomb over MAC’s expensive junk! They are much more pigmented to me.

Here are a few pics of me wearing the lipsticks that I love! 1Wet N Wild Cherry Bomb (I wore it lightly on top of a nude liner to make it softer)2MAC’s Velvet Teddy (Still my fave … I can’t give into the Revlon dupe)3I searched high and low for Heroine… and Then a few weeks later I fell in love with Shameless by Revlon.

Do you have any fall favorites that I missed? These are just a few, I have tons of lipsticks! Share some of your favorite dupes with me.
