Twist and Curl Tutorial

Hey hunnibees,
I haven't done a hair post in awhile so I think one is fairly due.
I've been rocking my hair like this lately since I don't like messing with it a lot and have done it two different ways. (wet and stretched by heatless blowdry)
The first time I tried this style I did it wet and these were my results:
It came out okay, but for the wet hair and this style I prefer using Shea moisture curl and style milk and melted shea butter for better results instead of moisturizer and wrap lotion.
Sadly, two days after I got caught in the rain and had to rock it in a puff/bang. Thankfully this style looks great as an updo (=

The other way I do this style is with pre-stretching my hair a bit with a heatless blowdry (note: recently put another purple rinse in my hair so yayyy no more tri color hair lol)

It came out great and lasts longer when its stretched ,which keeps my hands out of my hair (this is always a good thing). My edges have thickened up within the time that I've had this hairstyle since I haven't been messing with it!) 

Have you tried this style? Do you do anything differently?

Dr Song 50% Lactic Acid Face Peel Review

Hey hunnibees! I've been busy with finals lately and wanted to try this product out for awhile so I could see longer term effects to report to you all (=

 "Dr Song Medical is a medical cosmetic laboratory that originally manufactured natural based products for professionals, doctors, and medical facilities. Dr Song Medical products are made in the USA and is FDA compliant and a provider of professional products that focus on natural ingredients".

 They have a collection of different facial care items including serums, oils, and peels. The one I chose to try was the Lactic Acid peel because its a great intro peel, more gentle than the other selections.
During my first session I was surprised by how quickly my skin tingled, I can't imagine how the other peels feel- I highly recommend this for beginners.

This helped me achieve more even skin and is helping fade dark spots.
I use this weekly now instead of the 4 weeks at a time since I have oily skin. If you have dry and or sensitive skin id advise their recommended 4 weeks at a time until you see how your own skin reacts to the peel.

Glowy skin
Helps fade discoloration
Makes skin smoother- easier makeup application (=

I am looking forward to trying more peels from the company, especially their salicylic acid peel since I have acne.
I will do an update on this with before and after pictures when I finish the whole bottle, but my dark marks are definitely fading ^__^

Much love,

InstaNatural Stretch Mark and Scar Cream Review

Hey hunnibees!
I have become a huge fan of Instanatural because of their amazing ingredients and so happy I can review their products. I received their Stretch Mark and Scar Cream (For Prevention and Reduction) which I was excited to try.

I do sadly suffer from stretch marks so lately I've been trying to up my water intake but this came as a great addition. The more you moisturize your skin, the more elastic your skin is. I.E moisturized, hydrated skin= less wrinkles, stretch marks, scarring etc. This has been doing just that for me lately! My skin is super supple because it is being drenched with a list of amazing oils (I kind of want to try this in my hair-lol)

Product Claims:
InstaNatural’s Stretch Mark & Scar Cream is an effective treatment to minimize the appearance of current marks, while also preventing the forming of new ones. Stretch marks and scars are created when collagen is weakened and skin is stretched or torn beyond its limit. Our cream heavily moisturizes affected areas – such as hips, stomach and arms - delivering nourishment and hydration to enhance elasticity of your skin and help restore a youthful look and even appearance.

Key Ingredients:
+ Vitamin C (15%)
+ Cocoa Butter
+ Rosehip Oil
+ Mango Butter
+ Grapeseed Oil
+ Evening Primrose Oil

This product gets a 5/5 for me <3

InstaNatural Vitamin C Facial Toner Review

Hey Hunnibees! I have another Instanatural review(and will have more oncoming- their stuff is awesome!) This is on their vitamin c facial toner.
First off, I must say I really like their new design <3. Anyways onto the product. 
The Product states: "Our Vitamin C Facial Toner is the perfect way to tone and hydrate your skin while still delivering the powerful benefits of Vitamin C and other anti-aging elements. First, the sulfur in each spray will drive deep down to penetrate your skin and increase elasticity to maximize results. At the same time, the Witch Hazel present in the toner will gently purify your skin and pores, even helping to reduce their size and appearance. Simultaneously, Vitamin C renews and strengthens the skin to reverse the signs of aging and help prevent future damage. The Vitamin C Facial Toner is a great all-in-one hydrator that preps your skin to absorb serums and moisturizers more efficiently and effectively and is the perfect staple to add to your beauty regimen."

I have oily skin so I tend to use toners and astringents like witch hazel and seabreeze. Seabreeze can sometimes be overdrying depending on the day and this is great for when you want calm skin that is clean but not overly clean( if that makes any sense.) When you remove all of the natural oils on your face it actually causes overproduction of sebum which just makes you into even more of an oil slick- ugh! 

This product was great for an in between product and very refreshing. The smell was citrusy but something you'll slowly get used to .Instanatural never seems to fail with their ingredients. I found it cool that the toner had oils as well to balance your face without overstripping. I experienced softer skin and love that I can use it on more sensitive areas like around my eyes.
Rating: 4.5/5

Yumi Beautiful Rose Hip Oil Review

Hey hunnibees!
I recently got to try out Yumi Beautiful's Rose Hip Oil.
I've been seeing a lot on this oil so was excited to try it out.  RHO is filled with antioxidants, vitamins, and fatty acids. It acts as a great nourishing and hydrating treatment for your hair, skin and nails. Yumi's RHO being cold pressed means that you get more nutrients as well since they haven't been altered. 
The only cons for me was the product lasting only four weeks and having to be stored in the refrigerator- but that's not a big deal to me. (:
I can't speak for the effects on my face since I didn't want to break out but it worked great on my hair, lips, and nails!
It definitely helped me stretch my haiyr while it was straight. 
Also, this could just be me, but it smells like tea which added to me liking it.
I give this product 5/5 
Have you tried RHO if so how do you use it?

Victoria's Secret Sport Review [Courtesy of Influenster]

Ahh, are these possibly two of my favorite things? Why, yes they are, thanks to Influenster I was able to review the new Incredible by Victoria's Secret Sports Bra! 
 I also got an amazing pair of VS Knockout tights and 25% off coupons to share with friends and family.<3

I flipped when the box came and my face lit up! The bra design is amazing and it has this cute back design that is really unique ( I'll probably add a picture of it here). 
The straps and material are comfy but sadly I got a 36 D instead of my usual 34 D/DD. I advise if you're getting one of their sports bra's that you go in for a fitting (=. I can't fully rate this since it wasn't my size but it held up well despite the fact, the only thing I would change is adding adjustable straps to this one! I'll decide if I want to break up with my sports bra once I try on an Incredible that is my size. All in all, I love cute workout clothes that actually function well so VS Sport is definitely on my list now. 
I will be wearing the sports bra under a shirt of course (too much up top right now lol.) I highly recommend you try their sports line for yourself.
Cute and fit for the win!

This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria's Secret products to test and review as part of a contest.

Beauty By Shea Review& Giveaway CLOSED (=

Hey hunnibees!
I'm back with a review i've been looking forward to, thanks to Beauty By Shea I was able to try out 100% raw organic unrefined shea butter.
This was new for me as I had never used shea butter, surprising right? (except trying my sisters on my skin once.) 
Shea butter has numerous benefits and has a great mix of emollients with Vitamins A, E, F & K.

  • Natural SPF, great for skin and hair protection from UV rays
  • Great for irritated skin and scalp problems, whether your scalp is itchy or you have dandruff (shea absorbs into the scalp and doesn't clog your pores)
  • Amazing sealant to lock in moisture and produce softening effects
  • Natural heat protectant ( can't wait to try it next time I straighten my hair.)

There's so many uses for shea butter that it's pretty much an all around great product
  • Caring for your cuticles
  • Lip balm for soft, moisturized lips
  • Healing of scars
  • Eyelash/Eyebrow growth
  • Helps to lay down edges
  • And much more! (=
I recently used the shea butter for a twistout instead of my usual coconut oil and must I say...I LOVE IT. The shea butter gave a natural stretch to my twistout and the shine was gorgeous. This will definitely become a staple to my twistouts.

Esutra's Golden Flaxseed Review

Hey hunnibees!
I've always wanted to try out flax seed and I finally had the chance to review some (=
These flaxseeds are by the company Esutra's (this company has amazing stuff by the way)

Also the flaxseeds are so pretty, this picture does no justice. If you haven't heard much about flax seeds here are some benefits:
  •   source of Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and lignans that exhibit a number of properties that are essential to good health.
  • Fights Heart Disease, High Cholesterol
  • Fights Cancer, Diabetes, Constipation
  • Is a Brain food and helps with ADHD + Memory Loss
  • Anti-Inflammatory -Helps decrease inflammation
  • Helps with Weight Loss
  • Great for PMS + menopausal symptoms -including Hot flashes
To yield these great benefits you should grind the flaxseed, but, alas I haven't been able to grind them. I've ate them sprinkled on salad but you wont get the true benefits without it being ground down. Luckily there has been something i've been wanting to try forever..FLAXSEED GEL.

Hair Benefits:
  • Encourages hair growth
  • Supple, moisturized, shiny hair
  • Low price for lots of product yield
  • Nourishing for the hair 
  • Great definition without the crunchy feeling

You'll be seeing my post on the hair gel soon, stay tuned.

How I Achieve A Heatless Blowout

Hey Hunnibees (=
I loooove doing hair posts, maybe this will become a weekly thing since i'm always trying something new whether it be a style or product.

This post is going to be on no heat blowouts,
this is my favorite method for quick stretching of natural hair and maybe it'll be yours soon as well.

What I Did:
1. Washed my hair with ORS HAIRepair Invigorating Shampoo
2. Conditioned with Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist
3. Applied Cantu Shea Butter Leave In on soaking wet hair
4. Coated hair with Vatika Coconut Oil ( I love this oil but I will be finding another coconut oil to replace it)
5. Sectioned off hair while in shower and twisted it
6. Let hair dry while wrapped in t-shirt
7. When hair is still damp its time to blow dry(I have a blowdryer with a cold setting, if you don't use your coolshot button and use a heat protectant.)
8. Mid way through blow drying I apply Carols Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey which makes their hair more smooth and set.
9. Optional- twist while blowdrying for soft, silky twistout.


Note: Tangle Teezers work great for heatless blowdrying, if you want your hair to be smoother follow up with a denman or paddle brush.

The Outcome:

No styling

Light Styling


What's your favorite? Have you ever used this method on your hair? I love the versatility of natural hair (:

Canvas HQ Review

Hey Hunnibees!
If you know me you know I love drawing whether it be by hand or by digital pen.
Lately I've had the chance to review a company called Canvas HQ's high quality digital prints
I chose one of my old digital pieces and it came out beautifully, vibrant and rich (=

The company also has great customer service and makes it more personal. I highly recommend their services whether you want your art work, family pictures, or wall art to add a spice to your room displayed.

Wash Day (=

Hey hunnibees!
Personal post time, awwww yeah (=

I'm trying to shorten wash day more and more and have nailed two key products that are essential to just that.
These two products are

As I Am Cleansing Pudding: OMG, I've been using this for awhile now and it is love! Such an effective cleaner and it doesn't leave my hair stripped (=
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle MOIST: This is what changed the whole game, this makes detangling a breeze. I'm going back for a million and the regular conditioner as well. <3

Sidenote: I use coconut oil to detangle as well.

If I ever feel like I have buildup from this and that the cleansing pudding wont be strong enough I use ORS Hairepair Invigorating Shampoo which cleanses without drying.

My hair brushed out post wash (I cant wait until all of my curls get to shoulder length)

Where do I go from there?
Twists, lots of them (if im not lazy or in a rush lol) I part my hair in 4 sections and do 5 twists for each section with cantu leave in and coconut oil andddd tadahhhh

A cute, shiny, defined twistout that I can wear for 2 weeks plus ( Because who on #teamthickhair wants to wash their hair every couple of days? Nononono)

Happy Wash Days, let the odds be ever in your favor!

<3 Hunni
