There’s nothing better than a good quality shampoo & conditioner!

A lot of people do not understand how IMPORTANT it is to use good quality shampoos and conditioners on your hair. I do like to switch up my hair products but have always stayed loyal to a few brands such as: It’s a 10, Kerastase & Matrix Biolage.

Recently, I got to try It’s a 10 Miracle Silk Shampoo and Conditioner. What I like the most about these products is that even after blowdrying and straightening my hair, my hair still smelt so amazing and not like a burnt oven! I am firm believer that it’s important to not only keep your hair healthy, but smelling as good as well. After using these products, my hair felt super soft and smooth. It works great to detangle and control frizz! I finished the conditioner in a month, and my hair is already dying to get my hands on more! I highly recommend trying these products.

Miracle Smoothing Brush? It’s a 10!

Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 4.20.50 PM.png

I know this may sound a little crazy but I am completely obsessed with my Miracle Smoothing Brush by It’s a 10 hair care. Yes, you read that correctly…I am obsessed with a BRUSH! I’ve never had a favorite brush before. Just a few average go-to’s from target, walmart, sally’s, but nothing special.

I take a lot of pride in my hair, but there is one basic beauty tool that is overlooked when it comes to our hair’s appearance and condition, and that my friend is a GOOD QUALITY BRUSH.

From the shampoos and conditioners we choose, to the styling products we purchase for heat protection and shine, there is no denying that we spend a lot time and effort maintaining our hair.

But when it comes to the hair brush we use, most of us rarely think twice about the what we brush our hair with, and it could be what’s causing you a permanent bad hair day.

I’d like to introduce to you the all new Miracle Smoothing Brush. This brush was introduced to me recently and I couldn’t be more obsessed with it. MSB is a salon quality professional tool now available for sale in the retail world, and I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU BUY IT ASAP!

I absolutely love that it’s curved and conforms to the shape of your head. I love the mixture of bristles that easily brush through your hair wet or dry. AND I absolutely love that I don’t feel my hair ripping out of my head! Trust me, your hair will thank you for it.

It’s A 10 Miracle Smooth Brush Has 10 Benefits (of course)

1. Porcupine (tufted) bristles of natural, soft, flexible boar intermixed with nylon material for grip.
2. Naturally conditions hair while improving texture and shine, creating ultra smooth looking hair.
3. Creates stronger styling capability while significantly decreasing frizz.
4. Bristles gently grips strands to make it easy to style, while also adding amazing smoothness.
5. Curved paddle feature conforms to shape of head.
6. Excellent for controlling fine hair, as well as for thoroughly brushing thick hair right down to the scalp.
7. Gentle, but exerts a good hold on the hair.
8. Soft touch coating for comfort of use.
9. Vented structure makes it easy to cleaning.
10. Ergonomic handle.

How To Clean Your Make-Up Brushes (Why You Should And How Often Should You Do It)

Do you have any idea how important it is to clean your make-up brushes? Most dermatologists will tell you to soak your tools, especially foundation and concealer brushes, once a week — at minimum — to prevent product buildup. Because these brushes are used on your face, the cleaner, the better, says Bobbi Brown. “Brushes that are used around the eyes should be cleaned at least twice a month,” she says. “All others can be washed once a month.”

Why it’s important to clean your make-up brushes:

1. Acne prevention: Whenever you use your makeup brushes, they are collecting everything that is on your face — namely, oil, dead skin cells, dust, and anything else clinging to your skin. This is a recipe for disaster (or rather, acne). Every time you use a dirty brush, you are wiping this disgusting combination all over your face, clogging your pores as a result.

2. Better color application: Dirty makeup brushes are also ineffective for applying color precisely. With old makeup caked on your brushes, you are unable to get the look you’re going for, whether that is naturally blended contour or a dramatic eyeshadow.

3. Maintain soft brushes: Dirty brushes become more abrasive and dry as they become more caked with product and debris from your face. In turn, this irritates your skin. Cleaning your brushes regularly keeps them soft enough to not cause damage to your face.

4. Avoid germs: Dirty makeup brushes are also a breeding ground for bacteria. Not only is this terrible for your face, it also is bad for your makeup products. Transferring all this bacteria to your products taints them, and what should have lasted you a year will spoil within months.

5. Longer lasting brushes: When you clean your makeup brushes regularly, you are preserving them. The more frequently you clean them, the longer your investment will last.

Always remember you should be buying new brushes every three months if they start to shed, smell or are discolored.

Follow these seven steps for cleaner, good-as-new brushes and blenders.

  1. Wet the bristles with lukewarm water.
  2. Place a drop of makeup brush cleanser or soap into the palm of your hand. I like to use Sigmagic Brush Shampoo.
  3. Gently massage the tips of the bristles in your palm or use your Sigma Spa Cleaning Mat.
  4. Rinse the bristles.
  5. Squeeze out the excess moisture with a clean towel.
  6. Reshape the brush head.
  7. Let the brush dry with its bristles hanging off the edge of a counter, thereby allowing it to dry in the correct shape. Never let your brushes dry on a towel — the bristles can become mildewed.

What To Wear: Bra Life

The hunt for the perfect bra seems like a never-ending battle that women around the world struggle with on a daily basis. For awhile, I stuck to sport bras because the under wire and the overly padded just weren’t for me. I had to ask myself, what qualities does a good bra have? Well, one is support, two is comfort and three is versatility. I finally have found a bra that has all three, and that is the Meer Bra! The Meer Bra feels like a sports bra and works better than underwire. When I first put on my Meer Bra I couldn’t believe how good my boobs looked. They were perky, high up and I felt comfortable!

meer2.jpg I looked at myself in the mirror and said: “wow, I could even wear this as a really cute bathing suit top.”

I am not somebody who likes to sacrifice my comfort for anything, so that’s why I love the Meer Bra so much. The Meer Bra can easily replace any other bra I have in my drawer and meets all of my needs!
