HASK Beauty Orchid & White Truffle Hair Care System

Right before the summer is the perfect time to start a new hair care routine!  Why?  Well, many of us get a new 'do and usually it tends to be shorter to help stay cool and refreshed during the summer months.  It's been a minute since I've given my hair a much needed, more than usual trim.  With summer fast approaching, I want to make sure I take care of my cut and color from the UV rays and salt in the air and water 🌊

 During the summer, you can usually find my family out on the boat enjoying the beautiful ocean or on the sand catching some rays pretty regularly.  Well, I also happen to color my hair every month and the ocean and hair color really don't mix!  Keep reading for 5 tips on how I keep my hair healthy and vibrant with the help of HASK Beauty and their Orchid & White Truffle Hair System 🌞

My 2nd Stitch Fix Box + The Perfect Fashion Gift for Mother's Day

Friday, May 12, 2017

I'm sure you are all wondering how Stitch Fix has been coming along!!!  If you didn't catch my 1st fix you can check it out here 😍 I have really been trying to step up my fashion game and after meeting Stitch Fix at the We All Grow Summit in California, I really wanted to give this styling service a shot!  In a nutshell, Stitch Fix stylists curate five wardrobe items based on a style survey you take when you set up your account.  The five items can be anything from shoes to jewelry, bags, and clothing.  You can actually set it up to receive the types of items you prefer.  When the box shows up, it is honestly so exciting!  From there, you can opt to keep or return the items and provide feedback on your decisions. This feedback helps your stylist to curate the next box.  You also have the option to receive boxes, or fixes, biweekly, monthly, or even seasonally!  

My first box was kind of like a starting point.  I ended up only keeping one item, a necklace.  Why?  Well, there were a few different was the biggest factor.  I would say style was a major factor as well.  I decided to continue with Stitch Fix as I knew it would take a few misses before my box was finally a hit.  Keep reading to see if my 2nd fix was good enough to fulfill my #fixobsession! 👚

Buffalo Exchange Magazine

One of my favorite things about living in Hollywood, FL is the eccentric shops, restaurants, and cafes.  Our downtown area is a local's paradise with a food truck night, monthly art walk, and different events held in the central Young Circle Park.  A must do is to sign up on the city's website for the What's Happening newsletter!

Thanks to this newsletter I learned about Buffalo Exchange opening up in the downtown Hollywood area, literally like 5 miles away from my house!  Keep reading to learn all about Buffalo Exchange and how I was able to trade clothes in my closet for some new pieces I would never find in a regular department store 👗👒👜👢

My Favorite Vegan & Cruelty Free Brands Celebrate #EarthDay with Savings blog title

Personally, I think we should be celebrating Earth Day 365 days a year, but I am thankful that there is definitely more awareness being brought to such an important cause.  After all, we live on Earth and owe her so much!  It still boggles my mind how we, as humans, can take such advantage of something so important.  After all, without our Earth we are nothing!  

In an effort to bring awareness and celebrate products that promote an Earth-friendly lifestyle, many brands are celebrating Earth Day with amazing savings and initiatives.  Keep reading to learn about some of my favorite vegan and cruelty free brands, and how they are sharing the Earth Day love 💚
