Everyday favorites: Hair Products

Happy Humpday! 

This week is literally flying by! 
I started blogging last week about my everyday favorites and today I am going to talk about my favorite everyday hair products! 
Now, the hair gods blessed me with my fathers hair and gave me natural curly, thick, course hair. 
{Thanks a lot, dad.}
So, I have to either straighten my hair or curl it with a curling iron so it looks somewhat tamed and controlled. To eliminate further damage on my hair I usually shower at night and let my hair air dry so I don't put as much heat on it. 

But, to protect my color {always a sulfate free shampoo} and keep my hair hydrated this is my daily regiment.

Favorite Hair Products

1. Pureology Hydrate Shampoo: helps keep my course hair hydrated and since it is sulfate free keeps my color protected and from it stripping faster.
2. Sebastian Light Conditioner: I love love love this conditioner. It gives my hair a little bit of moisture but without weighing it down and gives it a ton of shine. 
3. ENJOY Luxury Conditioner: Twice a week I will use this instead of the sebastian and go heavy on my ends with it. It smells heavenly and really just helps bring my hair back to life and does wonders for my split ends.
{Warning} if you have super, fine hair, do not use this conditioner. It is super heavy and will weigh it down like whoa. 
4. Morrocan Oil Treatment: Whether I let my hair air dry or blow dry I always, always, always use morrocan oil. Not only is it super healthy for your hair, but it smells wonderful. It helps tame flyaways and frizz as well. 
After I am done curling my hair or straightning I will take one pump of it and put it on my dry ends for extra protection. I also take the extra on my hands and rub into my arms and legs. It is a great moisturizer for the skin!
5. Morrocan Oil Medium Hold Hairspray: I may or may not use this as perfume from time to time if I forget to put some on. Smells heavenly! I love this hairspray because it gives hold but is very flexible. So, if you brush through your curls this is perfect because it doesn't take the shape out and is very flexible. 

These are my favorite daily hair prodcuts that help keep my luscious locks in place and tamed everyday! Do you have any products that you just love so much you use every single day? 
What are they?

Next up tomorrow, nail care.

Top 5 Tuesday: Favorite Closet Items!

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

I'm oh so very happy to announce that Rachel has brought back Top 5 Tuesday!
This week she chose to talk about the top 5 things worn in our closet. 
I really thought I would struggle with this one because I get very overwhelmed at times when I look into my closet, but, it was actually super easy.

Now, take your cute little but on over to her blog and link up!

Just Peachy

Favorite Closet Items!

I just realized I forgot to number these, oh well.

1. leopard loafers: i love the loafer look, step off.
I got these bad boys at taget for 20 bucks. I refuse to pay a lot for trendy pieces {like the 80.00 ones I saw at DSW} because I will most likely be over these in two months.
2. White basic tank: Old Navy.
The one listed isn't Old Navy, but I was lazy and used polyvore and that was the closest, shoot me. I wear the crap out of this shirt. I layer it with blazers, wear it alone with a scarf, pair it a bold necklace. I have so many options with a tank like that its a must in my closet.
3. AG Stilt jeans.
Now, I'm not one to buy expensive things, I'm actually pretty cheap. However, I'm in LOVE with these jeans. I highly suggest everyone to invest in at least TWO pairs of high quality denim. It does wonders for your ass, I'm just sayin'. 
4. A bright colored blazer: I have three bright colored ones in my closet. Just adds a nice pop of color when you are having a bad day, or just want to put that extra POP in your outfit. 
I mean, who doesn't like a blazer that say "I'm here!"
5. Black maxi skirt: I mean how can ya go wrong with this, ladies? You can dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the groccery, or wear it to happy hour! I have one from Forever21 that is shorter in the front and longer in back like this one and I have worn it so many different ways! It's a must!
Bonus: booties.
I'm still undecided about booties. I have a pair I'm interested in adding to my closet and just undecided about them. I have a high heeled bootie that I loved & adore, but just don't know how I feel about a low heeled bootie, thoughts on if I should add?

As you can see my favorites are pretty basic, staple pieces but that is what allows me to build everything else in my closet! Do you have any of the same top 5? 
Thank you, Rachel for bringin Top 5 Tuesdays back!

My everyday favorites!

Oh hey there.

I had a bit of "bloggers block" {aka case of the lazy's} and decided I haven't done a post in awhile about my everyday favorites in awhile!

So, for the nexy few days I am going to post my favorites in the following catagories:

Today is probably my favorite topic because I am what I like to call a makeup addict, and because well homegirl just does not, and I repeat, does not look cute without makeup. I find myself buying a lipgloss here, a mascara there, an eyeshadow quad pops up every now and then, and next thing you know my makeup bag looks like target & sephora threw up inside of it.

So, these are my make up favorites that I use everyday and don't want to try and live without.

My make up!

1. spellbound lipstick: covergirl
{everyone needs a bright colored lipstick in their make up bag, everyone}
2. Physicians formula bronzer brick 
Love this bronzer because it gives a really good natural glow, and has lasted me months.
3. NARS orgasm blush.
I die for this color. I try so many shades, and ALWAYS go back to this one.
4. Sephora Eye Palette: "In the Nude"
These shades are great! You can really build them off of one another and they match everything so well.
5. elf high definition powder.
Now, ladies, if you pay a ridic amount of moolah on makeup forever's HD powder, STOP. I think this powder works 10x better and is 6.00 bucks!! 
Thank you, elf!
6. elf volumizing and lengthing mascara.
I really can only say the following about this mascara, I die for it, and it costs me 1.00. 
We shall call that a win. I will say if you are a heavy hitter with the mascara, like myself, it is a real bitch to get off sometimes. 
But, for a 1.00 I will not complain.

Now, I do use bare minerals as a base but most days I've just been rockin' some bronzer and blush becaue I've been tan. 
However, when the summer tan fades and casper the friendly ghosts comes back out to play I will bust it back out!

Do you have any makeup favorites you use on a daily basis because you love so much?
I'm looking to dip back into the foundation world for winter time so I would love some feedback on different brands.

Have a fabulous weekend, I am beyond excited for mine.
