Long Time, No Post (Why Am I Awake?)

It’s been a whirlwind of a summer so far and things are starting to calm down again. I’m finally settling in at work and I’ve been testing out a ton of products. There have been a lot of hit and misses and I’ll go into more detail about those at the end of the week in my catch-up postings.

Although, I do have to say that I’ve gotten a bit…lazy in terms of hair care. I haven’t been wearing my hair out because I just don’t have the time to work with it first thing in the morning anymore. So I bought a wig! I still stick to my normal wash regime, only now I keep my hair in two-strand twists during the week and re-moisturize them once a week. I did have a trim done at the end of May and I cried a bit on the inside but it had to be done. The split ends were getting fierce from the previous winter.

I’m also trying out a few non-hair products, including two different spot-treatments for my hyper-pigmentation, body scrubs, waxes, and post-waxing/shaving treatments. All-in-all, I went on a lot of shopping trips and my product junkie tendencies have sky rocketed. >_<

I will be “officially” recording my skin’s progress with the spot treatments and taking an “official” length check with my hair. I haven’t really seen it in almost 2 months so I’m curious to see if I’ve regained the length from my trim. My hair grows slowly but I’m getting close to the length that I had before I burned it all out with a relaxer back in college.



Exciting Week Ahead!

Just a few updates to catch up with before I start a new week. I’ve updated the Beauty section with a review the products I use on a daily basis for my skin regimen. Every product was paid for by myself and I do not sponsor any of the companies reviewed. The opinions expressed are based off of my own experience and may not be the same for everyone. You can read about my skin care regimen here.

I’ve also update my favorite make up products in my product reviews section. This week focused on a few foundations that matched my skin tone well, both partial coverage and full coverage. You can read more about my favorite products here.

Also, good news!!! I’ve been checking my CurlKit account all week and my April Kit finally made it to Pittsburgh (YEA!!). Now I’m just waiting for my daily mail delivery and I get to open the goodness! I’m hoping that after close to 3 weeks of waiting, everything is intact so that I don’t have to contact them again to have items replaced.

I’ll also do a review of my favorite facial masks and make up looks in celebration of Spring. Hey, look, it’s still cold in Pittsburgh so we’re celebrating spring a bit late, don’t judge. I’m just happy that I don’t have to chip ┬áice off of my windshield anymore.
