As we transition out of winter and into spring not only does the weather change but so does our hair and skin. Winter was dry and harsh on our skin but as spring comes around the warmer weather is also bringing a little humidity with it. As spring is sneaking up on us, I have a few products that are going to be my go-to spring must-haves. With spring comes floral everything. This year my go-to floral will be rose. Not only are roses beautiful and have a pretty scent, but they are also extremely beneficial to the skin and hair. Roses have anti-inflammatory properties which can help with acne. Roses also help with hydration and irritation in the skin. For the hair, rose can help with frizziness, dryness and can help soothe any scalp irritation. 

For my spring beauty, I have compiled a few products I will be using this season. The products include hair care, skin care, makeup, and perfume. This season I would like to focus more on the health of my skin and hair rather than the makeup. Havi...

You've probably heard the phrase "dress for the job you want" more times than you can count, either from mom, "fashion forward" aunt or from some inspo Tumblr page and quite frankly it is spot on. If you are ever unsure about what to wear to work or an interview you ALWAYS want to dress more business than casual. Your boss or whoever is interviewing you would much rather have you be overdressed than underdressed. For example, do you think a hiring manager is going to take someone who wore lulu lemon leggings to an interview seriously? The answer is no. From working in retail sales as well as growing up with a mother who works in the corporate world I have grown to understand the most appropriate things to wear in the workplace that is sophisticated, comfortable, affordable and classy. The absolute last thing us millennials want is to be dressed like someone's grandmother in work attire. I have added some of my Polyvore sets containing my favorite items that are appropriate and stylish...

This product instantly caught my eye. After reading about the product and reviews, I just had to try it. Function of beauty is made in the USA & is a tailor-made shampoo conditioner duo based on your hair type, scalp type and goals for the hair. On top of that, you can also customize it further to add a specific fragrance you like as well as the color of the product. Not only is this product completely personalized (they put your name on the bottle - SO cute) it is also cruelty-free, paraben free, sulfate free, toxin-free and the bottles are 100% recyclable. This product sounds amazing, right? The only question left is "does it work?" 

I purchased my product and received it about a month later since they personalize each shampoo and conditioner by chemists for each person who orders it. From the quiz, it was determined that I have straight hair with medium hair structure and a dry scalp. My goals for my hair were to soothe the scalp, add shine, volume, hydration and to take away frizz....

Life is stressful, and we all need a break now and then. Not only do we need it but we DESERVE it. A lot of the time our personal needs get lost in the shuffle between work, school, family, friends, etc... and it's up to ourselves to make time for some R&R. Personally, I have pretty much exhausted everything a person could ever try to calm down, relax and just take care of myself for a moment. From meditation to deep tissue massages there are a bunch of different things you can do for yourself. R&R in a way kind of falls into self-love which is one of the most important things for your mental and physical health. There are many aspects to self-love, but I'll save that topic for a different post. If you don't take time to put yourself first and relax now and then, who will? 

The first thing you should do is clean your damn room. It seems silly but our personal spaces are a reflection of our mind, and if you have a messy room, chances are your mind is cluttered as well. You can't rela...
