This past Sunday has put me back in the groove. I find blogging a pure delight and now I’m craving to do more. What girl doesn’t love to get dolled up & take pictures?! The whole process is so much fun – preparing your outfit for the photo shoot, doing your hair & makeup (even though with this photo shoot, my hair had no chance. Wind – 1 | Adrianna – 0), finding the perfect spot to take pictures, sitting down and actually writing the blog post, etc. I’m so happy that my wonderful friend Ania wanted to take photos of me. I love them all. Now I can’t wait until we do it again – hint hint: the sooner, the better 🙂 haha

I was never sure how I’d feel about over-the-knee boots because I was always worried I would look weird because I don’t have long legs. But I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on for the first time. I fell in love with them so much I ended up getting 3 different pairs. They go perfectly with almost everything I wear. I love the look of these boots with my long fur vest – which I had the pleasure of wearing for the first time this season – well actually ever – since it’s been hanging in my closet for the past few months. I completely forgot I even had it. Funny thing is that my grey, long sleeve, fur jacket from Sunday Funday Part 1 was worn for the time as well. I will have to make use of them more often before the cold weather ends.

Thanks for stoppin’ by ♥

Hello! It feels so good to be back writing blog posts! I truly missed this. These past few months have truly been hard & it’s not over but the end is near! 🙂

During my experience with them they were very professional and friendly, they offered me fast, easy, safe & outstanding customer service & products. They make sure to take care of their clients.

  1. Timotei Golden Highlights Shampoo & Conditioner

timotei shampoo timotei conditioner

Timotei Golden Highlights Shampoo & Conditioner with Jericho Rose is infused with natural extract of camomile flower, which is known to have anti-oxidant and moisturizing properties. It’s for blonde or highlighted hair. It contains 100% natural extracts & o% parabens. This shampoo & conditioner formula brings out your golden highlights to reveal the true shine and beauty of blonde hair.

During my use of the shampoo & conditioner my hair felt very weightless & light. The shampoo is very gentle on the hair & scalp. I really loved that it does brighten up your hair & shows off your natural highlights. This product is great in my circumstance because I have never chemically treated my hair & I have natural highlights. During the summer my hair gets almost platinum blonde & during the winter months I have to struggle with my roots growing back a darker blonde – basically looks like I have ombre done. So during the time I’ve used this product it has helped lighten up my roots a bit. I see a difference. Another awesome thing was that my hair didn’t feel or look oily throughout the day. The shampoo & conditioner smells wonderful, gives off a nice shine, makes my roots lift up because of how weightless it is. I recommend this product to my natural & color treated blonde lady friends! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

Here are some photos of my hair journey:

2. Bielenda Professional Formula Oxygenating & Moisturizing Enzyme Mask Revitalizing Effect

bielenda mask

The Bielenda Oxygenating & Moisturizing Enzyme Mask is a highly effective & innovative oxygenating & moisturizing enzyme mask for all types of skin. It’s created for individuals of all ages. There was a specific task when this mask was created – to achieve results that compared to revitalizing treatments done by professional beauticians. This mask improves the most tired and insufficiently oxygenated skin – it deeply moisturizes, revitalizes the skin, improves blood circulation, improves elasticity, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, it restores the skin’s vitality & radiance, & also removes signs of stress & fatigue. After one use you truly feel a difference on your skin. This product should be applied twice a week, you apply the mask on your face, your neck & your décolleté. You leave it on for about 10 to 15 minutes until your skin absorbs it. After that you don’t wash off the excess, you just massage it into your skin in a circular motion. It truly did help my skin feel hydrated & oxygenated. My skin looks healthy, relieved of fatigue & stress, feels smooth & looks radiant. I will be continuing my use of this product for sure. This is another product I recommend to all of you & if this one doesn’t suit you they have many other to choose from on their website.
My skin is loving this mask, can’t you tell? 🙂

Hair Tips <3

Hello Everyone! 🙂

Whether you have long hair, short hair, straight or curly, dry or oily hair don’t you ever wonder if you’re taking care of your precious hair the right way? Us girls need to know/learn some hair tips so we can keep our hair healthy.

hair

  1. Make sure to trim your ends (split ends) every 3-4 months. This is an essential part to get beautiful and healthy hair because it removes the damage from your length and makes it look alive.
  2. Since your hair is most fragile when wet, try to avoid excessively brushing it until it’s mostly dry. This will help avoid breakage.
  3. Find a shampoo that is best for your hair type. It’s essential in order to have healthy, manageable, strong and shiny hair everyday. Some shampoos lather your hair up too much and then leave build-up in your hair which makes it look greasy and dirty.
  4. After you condition, make sure to rinse your hair with cold water. By doing so you seal the cuticle which makes it harder for moisture to enter your hair. This stops the frizz! It actually works ladies! I mostly do this during the winter.
  5. Once you get out of the shower, automatically squeeze out any excess water and let your hair air dry for about 10 minutes before you blow dry. If you wrap your wet strands of hair in a towel this WILL cause your hair to be frizzy.
  6. Stop using bad brushes that just rip out your hair and cause breakage. I found a perfect brush for myself which I believe you should all try. It’s called The Tangle Tamer by Ti Style. It’s “professionally designed to prevent the usual pulling and snagging you get from a normal brush. Perfect for those early morning brushing episodes.” It truly works wonders. I’ve compared my old brush to this one and there is a significant difference in the amount of hair that’s pulled out. I recommend it to everyone. IMG_7810
  7. For the people who don’t have that much time in the morning to wash and style their hair, there is always dry shampoo. This really works wonders. If you need a quick refresh and have no time to shampoo use this product, it’s really the go to product. A great bonus is that it gives your hair volume! Another method is using baby powder but you have to make sure you rub it in so your hair doesn’t look white.         psssssst-dry-shampoo
  8. For those that use blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons every day make sure to apply styling products that protect your hair against heat damage. Also apply the product 5 to 10 minutes beforehand for it to fully absorb into your hair strands so you get the full effect.
  9. If you are one of those people that gets oily and greasy hair easily then avoid directly conditioning your roots. Just condition your hair from your ear down to your ends for the best result.
  10. And like I said in my last post don’t forget to try using Manuka Honey it will moisturize, condition, and protect your hair!

Manuka Honey <3

Happy Monday! Hopefully you are all relaxed after this past weekend and you all enjoyed yourselves!

unnamed

Today I’m going to tell all of you about a product that my boyfriend’s mom told me to try out. She is a health advocate and basically buys everything that is organic and healthy for you. The product is Manuka Honey. It’s produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. Manuka Honey is one of the most famous honeys in the world and it’s known for it’s natural healing methods, it’s delicious flavor, dark colored honey with high antioxidant properties which help increase immunity and vitality and remarkable anti bacterial healing powers. Most people that buy Manuka Honey simply just put it in their tea or on their toast but it’s known as the “Healing Honey”. Advocates say it treats wounds, infections, burns, eczema, and dermatitis. Also, honey is ideal energy food since it helps improve physical endurance. We all know that for many many years honey has been used to treat many conditions, since it has natural antibacterial properties. By eating honey, it can protect against damage caused by bacteria without damaging your body tissue.Some honey even has an anti-inflammatory action that reduces pain and inflammation once it’s applied. It’s also famous for being used medically in hospitals to heal ulcer active wounds.  Not all honey is not the same though. It all depends on how and when it’s harvested. Some kinds of honey may be 100 times more potent than others.

Some different ways to use Manuka Honey are →

  • You can apply this honey to your face for about 10-15 minutes and it’ll leave your skin soft and smooth. It helps in the reduction of inflammation and helps avoid pimples. Which I know us girls worry about.
  • It can also be used to condition our hair to make it softer and get rid of dandruff.
  • It’s an awesome substitute for sugar especially for those looking to lose weight.
  • Manuka Honey doesn’t cause bacteria resistance unlike antibiotics.
  • It can be applied directly to the skin to treat skin infections, wounds, bites and cuts.
  • You can eat is as you would any other honey product you have at home to maintain general health.
  • It can be taken orally to help soothe the throat and digestive tract.

So as all of you can see Manuka Honey can either be used every day for beauty, for your drinks or can be used for medicinal purposes; either way you look at it, the benefits are amazing! I truly recommend all of you to try this product. You can find this product in Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and any Health & Vitamin shop.
