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

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.

Favorite Products :)

Happy Hump Day Everyone! Don’t worry Friday is almost here, we’ll get through it! 🙂

Today I want to share with you a few of my personal favorite beauty products I like to use. I recently stocked up on them and thought I would share, just in case any of you are looking to switch it up.

1. BIOSILK

I have been using this product for years now. It does a marvelous job making my hair look amazing. My personal favorite is the Silk Therapy. It’s a leave in silk replenishing & reconstructing treatment that helps smooth, protect and strengthen your hair. This product fills in any voids in the cuticle layer, helps prevent split ends from occurring and leaves your hair looking shiny. It can be used on either wet or dry hair. I personally just use it on my ends because my roots get greasy very easily. The Silk Therapy Shampoo leaves your hair looking amazing- it gives a soft, shiny, and luxurious feel. The Silk Therapy Conditioner leaves your hair looking shiny, healthy and manageable. It also has UV filters that protect your hair from damage. Both the Shampoo and Conditioner contain botanical herbs and extracts. I definitely recommend these products!

2. HEMPZ

This amazing HEMPZ lotion is enriched with 100% natural hemp seed oil and is blended with natural extracts that provide hydration and nourishment to help improve the health and condition of your skin.This lotion leaves your skin feeling smooth, soft, and relaxed. The Ginseng, Shea Butter and other natural extracts help calm, soothe and hydrate your skin. While the Vitamins A, C and E protect your skin from natural and environmentally-triggered oxidants. And yes for anyone wondering, this product is THC drug-free. 🙂 My personal favorites are the Vanilla Plum (smells soooooooo wonderful, I’m hooked on it) and Pomegranate.

3. NIVEA LIP BUTTER

If you’re looking for a product to make you have the best kissable lips ever, I found it for you! The Nivea Lip Butter is absolutely great! (my personal favorite is the Raspberry Rose). The vitamin enriched formula moisturizers your lips with Nivea’s Hydra IQ technology to create a light, protective layer of nourishment for smooth, soft and healthy-looking lips. The hydrating formula is filled with Shea Butter, Almond Oil and Vitamin E which moisturizes and soothes your dry lips leaving them kissable. Don’t believe me? Well try it for yourself and let me know what the results are! 🙂

index4. BIOTIN

Every female should be taking this vitamin. Biotin supports the metabolism of carbohydrates but is also important for healthy hair, nails and skin. That’s the main reason I use it and I actually do see results. My hair and nails have gotten stronger. I personally recommend this to everyone.

Have a wonderful day! 🙂

Crop Tops & High Waisted Skirts. <3

unnamed1

Hello Gorgeous People! 🙂 ❤ Hope you all had a wonderful weekend filled with fun and excitement because I know I did. 🙂 This weekend I went to my friend Jola’s bridal shower.

This is the outfit I put together for that occasion. A crop top & a high waisted pencil skirt. The crop top gives us ladies an opportunity to show a bit of skin while still keeping it classy, sexy & updated. For a chic and clean look pair a crop top with a high-waisted pencil skirt, you just can’t go wrong. Crop tops are daring enough as is, so you don’t have to amp up the sex appeal. Do not & I repeat DO NOT pair a crop top with a mini skirt or regular shorts.You’ll look very tacky. Remember ladies, crop tops don’t need to bare all. A crop top doesn’t mean a bared belly button, it’s meant to show off a hint of skin- the bared midriff look– and not your whole stomach. Crop tops are meant to show 1 to 2 inches of skin . They look best with skirts (pencil & flowy skirts) and high waisted shorts! I personally wouldn’t choose this look for a day in the office, so remember to play it safe and leave it to casual/elegant outings.They may not be the easiest trend to style & pull off but when done right, it’s the perfect look. A high waisted pencil skirt is the epitome of the sophisticated and chic look. It can be perfectly paired with a crop top. You have to make sure your pencil skirt looks smooth and doesn’t have any bumps or extra material creating rolls/bulges in the wrong places because it won’t look nice. The perfect fit for a high waisted pencil skirt is essential. High waisted skirts emphasize a woman’s curves. When it comes to high waisted skirts I believe heels work best – they add length to your legs so you look taller while also creating a slimming silhouette. I paired my crop top & high waisted pencil skirt with my Tory Burch clutch & Zara heels.

Coral & Lace <3

Image

Hello 🙂 Happy Tuesday Everyone! Hope all of you are having a great week so far! ❤

I’m beyond thrilled to share with all of you the outfit I wore for Father’s Day. This look is all about coral & lace. I truly think coral is a perfect color for the summer. It shows off your tan perfectly, which is always a plus. Coral is certainly a color of choice for spring/summer fashion. It’s a color that’s full of life. And who doesn’t love lace – especially on a pair of shorts! Lace is very feminine & has a romantic feel to it. Lace is versatile, it also can easily make a transition from a day time to night time look. It’s a timeless piece which can be used as an overall look or simply just as an accent.

This fun & flirty outfit would be perfect for a date with a special guy or just going out with your girls to go shopping or to grab some drinks. If you want to make the look more casual then you can always wear sandals or flats as well. I personally think wedges look amazing! 🙂 The greatest part about this whole look is that it’s inexpensive! Everyone needs to remember that you don’t need to buy high end clothing to look good. If you have great fashion sense you can put together an amazing outfit by just buying from stores like Zara, H&M, Forever 21, Express, Necessary Clothing, TopShop, Nasty Gal, etc. Don’t have the mindset that if you spend more money on an article of clothing, it must be better because that’s not true.

Enjoy my pictures!

Especially for my fellow Blonde Bombshells <3

Hello Beauties! 🙂

I’m on to my next post which is strictly about BLONDES! People always ask me about my hair & how I get it to be so blonde. Whenever I let people know that I have NEVER dyed or highlighted my hair they are in complete shock. Ever since I was younger I would always ask my mom to go with me to the hair salon so I could get my hair lighter but her answer was always NO! I was always told by mom & hairdressers not to mess with my hair because I have natural highlights from the sun. Now that I think back to that I am SO HAPPY that I listened to them.

I get many compliments about the color and texture of my hair which usually gets followed by questions regarding what products I use. So this is a perfect time to share with all of you what I think works best. Whether you were born with blonde hair or you’ve decided to get it done at the salon, blonde locks require a certain routine to maintain them.

Let’s start off with shampoo’s & conditioners:

  • In my opinion, John Frieda has very good products for various types of blondes. Whether it has to do with lightening, renewing your color, strengthening the hair for triple breakage protection, or preserving the color (mostly for color treated blondes)- they all work wonders.
  • AVEDA also has a great shampoo and conditioner to enhance the blonde color.
  • Klorane has a Camomile shampoo and conditioner for blonde highlights.
  • For the platinum blondes, Paul Mitchell has a shampoo for you.
  • The RedKen used to have the Blonde Glam shampoo but they discontinued it unfortunately. The new product is Blonde Idol Sulfate-Free shampoo. It’s a daily cleansing shampoo for all types of blondes.

Besides the shampoos & conditioners you can also use John Frieda’s Go Blonder Lightening Spray. I use this product mostly during the winter when I’m not able to be in the sun and get my natural highlights. I use it just at the roots to get rid of the darker blonde color. You just spray the product and use a blow dryer, it’s very simple & you see instant results. Obviously if you want your hair very light you’ll have to use it 3-4 times. Also during the summer it’s perfect for when you are at the beach. You can just spray your hair and lay out in the sun catching a tan. The results will be amazing, I guarantee it. There is also a cheaper version which works well – Sun In Lightening Spray which can be found in any convenience store/pharmacy like CVS, Rite Aid, Wallgreens, etc. If you are the type of person that doesn’t like to use sprays and rather try a more natural route then you can always use lemon juice. It works the same way.

Lastly, another great product is It’s a 10 Miracle Leave In for Blondes. It meets the needs of natural & color treated blondes. It tones your hair color, adds shine, reduces fading & extends the vibrancy, detangles & defrizzes & is also a UV protectant.

I truly hope this will help my fellow blonde bombshells, especially since it’s the summer & you all want to show off your beautiful blonde locks! And remember everything I’ve posted is my personal opinion. Make sure to leave me comments & let me know what you think! I’ll love to hear your feedback! 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

Remember ladies,
