Love These Locks

Have you ever felt like your in a rut? As women there are certain things we like to have done to feel "cute" like nails done, hair done, maybe a new outfit. About 3 months ago I was feeling so self conscious and insecure- I feel like it's ok to open up and admit that because we have all felt that at one point or another in our lives, where I just felt so 'blah".  And what do girls do when we feel this way? We change our hair- I think that is partly embedded in our DNA. I randomly found a salon called Twiggs in Wayzata, MN after Google-ing "Best MN Salons" (lol), and they popped up. I called and made an appointment with Alexia, and after we talked I felt like I could trust her to drag me out of my rut. When I left the salon you guys I legit almost started crying because she did such a good job, and I felt like myself again. I don't want to say she's some type of hair wizzard but... I'll just leave that there. 

FF a few months, and I've never loved my hair more than I have now. I'll give you guys a little background on my hair- I'm Greek so naturally my hair is very dark. I tried to embrace the natural darkness, but you always want what we can't have, right? I have always wanted highlights, but every time I get them done they turn out so brassy like halfway on my head- that in-betweenie color you all know I’m talking about. Not to mention they have the best products, which I’m sure helped the color and the integrity of my hair. After I went to Alexia a few times, I wanted to share this experience because she genuinely cares about you and your hair.

I hope this post helps you guys on your hair journey, and that you give Twiggs a try! For first time clients they offer a $20 off new client discount which is amazing (that’s about 4 Starbucks… just sayin’). You can get this on their website here.

My First Microdermabrasion Facial

Hey guys! So I have an amazing collaboration with Pure Lux in Minneapolis that I can't wait to share with you. I did a microdermabrasion for the firstt time and the results are amazing. Vanessa used a diamond tip to exfoliate my skin and neck area, and for almost 2 weeks my skin has been soooooo extremely soft. What it does essentially is remove all the dead skin off the first layer of your face, and allows your face to more easily absorb your products. Vanessa is so sweet and runs such an amazing business, she genuinely values her clients. She met with me and we had a very successful consultation prior to our appointment where she asked me all about my skin and what results I was hoping for. These are very personalized appointments and she is so passionate about what she does it really makes you feel comfortable and eager to better your overall skin. I am already super excited to go in for my next facial! One of my New Years goals is to put more time into my skin, and using great products that natural and hydrating; along with services like different types of facials. 

I encourage you all to think about your skin a little more about your skin and checkout her website to see all the other services she offers as well!

The product that I have been obsessing over for about a month now is the bareMinerals Ageless Genius trio: the serum, moisturizer, and the eye cream. I've been testing this product for about 3 weeks, and with the combination of the facial and all these products have had wonderful results.

Fab Fit Fun Winter Box

Hey babes! I am so excited to share with you all the winter Fab Fit Fun box!!!!! I have loved every box and my partnership with them for about a year now, and they never disappoint. 

I actually got this box awhile back, but I have been so sick with my asthma I had to take about a month off from blogging to recover. Now that I'm feeling better I'm trying to catch up on a million things. Anyways, let's get started! 

First of all I am obsessing over the fact that Kate Somerville (middle) is in this box because I absolutely love all her products. This one is a green exfoliant for all skin types. I love love love the way this smells and feels on my face, it is so essential in the dry and cold weather to exfoliate daily. The Nelson Beverly Hills, "Moisture Healing Mask" is a perfect remedy for dry and damaged hair as well as the AHAVA "Mineral Hand Cream", it is super thick so a little definitely goes a long way.

Next up we have a cute poncho/scarf, fuzzy socks and a coffee mug which is the perfect combo for chilly winter- and finally I can say that to the majority of my followers since it's cold just about every where not just Minnesota, so you will all benefit from this! This mug is from Ayesha Curry's new home and kitchen line of recipes and decor, and I think the saying is so funny and perfect for my morning coffee or late night coco! What girl doesn't love fuzzy socks? These are also infused with aloe, so again really nice in this dry weather to hydrate cracked and damaged feet. This BB Dakota poncho is super cute for winter fashion, I belted mine at the waste or you could let it flow. 

And lastly, there is an amazing pallet from DOUCCE in nude. One of my favorite thing to get is a new pallet, I just think you can never have too many pallets! This one is nice because all the colors are neutral so you will get a lot of use out of this "everyday look". Also included was a Fab Fit Fun TV fitness ball (below, pink) with videos available from Jillian Michaels online. I can't wait to blow mine up and try some of her workouts!
