This is How to Get The Most from Your Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

Hyaluronic acid has become the darling of the skincare industry over the past couple of years. Ever since we learn of its moisture-enhancing abilities we've pretty much all integrated hyaluronic acid serum into our daily routines.  But are we using it in the most optimal way possible?

Chances are we're probably not applying highlight acid in a way that fully enhances moisture levels in the skin.  But don't worry, because I'm here to tell you how to tweak your hyaluronic acid application technique so you stay moisturized.

People Are Using Gua Sha Massagers on the Scalp to Promote Hair Growth


I was bored so I spent a little time checking out study papers about healthy hair growth.  Little did I know that I would stumble on a document that details a 5 Step Scalp Detox Program and its effect on hair growth.

Spoiler alert-- the 5 Step ScalpDetox program was shown to improve the scalp and increase hair growth.  Knowing that this a proven method made me pay closer attention as I reviewed each of the individual steps.

The Milk Alternative that Supports Healthy Skin & Hair.


Prior to quarantine, I enjoyed checking out local coffee shops in the area in search of the perfect chai latte.  After placing an order, I was often asked what type of milk I preferred.  As long as it wasn't cow's milk, I pretty much didn't care which of the remaining options they use. 

 It's all the same, right?

While plant-based milk is often a better option than dairy, they aren't all created equal.  

I learned today that one milk, in particular, supports our beauty goals and I'd like to tell you all about it.

Nikki Hall Introduces Us to this "Life Changing" Lip Exfoliator.

 I have a few lip scrubs that I barely use.  Something about rubbing microbeads across my lips with my fingers doesn't really appeal to me.  I felt like I could never master the technique. Should I scrub really hard? Should I lightly exfoliate? 

Once mask requirements became a thing, I pretty much gave up on exfoliating my lips altogether.  

But now I'm inspired to create soft, supple lips again thanks to an Instagram beauty reveal by Nikki Hall. 

Hemi-Squalane Might Be the Most Lightweight Beauty Oil in Existence.

 A couple years ago, I was introduced to one of my favorite hair and skin oils, squalane.  The moment squalane entered into my life, everything changed.  This oil is phenomenal because of its lightweight texture and its ability to feel silky and non-greasy.  

Once squalane came into my life, I thought nothing else could be better.  But perhaps I was wrong. 

There's A Japanese Hair Dryer That Shoots Collagen Directly Into Your Hair.

If you're a long-term reader of this blog, you know that I'm a massive fan of technology in the beauty industry.  I'm particularly interested in the progress and development of beauty tools.  Especially since, when it comes to hair, most styling tools inadvertently result in damage. 

Manufacturers understand that creating a healthier version of a flat iron, curling iron, or hairdryer, is a key to success so they're constantly trying to outdo themselves.  Enter a Japanese beauty supplier by the name of Tescom.  They are the originators of healthier heat styling.  And now they've outdone themselves by developing a line of styling tools that could potentially create healthier hair.  

Here's the kicker, they have a blow dryer that claims to "promote hair growth" and "protect the hair" via the power of collagen.

Temi Otedola Shares Her Fat Burning Morning Tonic


I've been thinking a lot about how I barely drink apple cider vinegar anymore.  I keep telling myself how I need to get back to drinking it again but haven't followed through.  Thankfully, I just so happen to come across some much-needed inspiration that will help me get back into an ACV routine.  

 I've veered away from drinking ACV because it sort of felts like a chore.  Vinegar is not exactly easy to drink.  But thanks to Temi Otedola, I'm ready to try again.   

Temi is a Nigerian actress and influencer with over a million followers on Instagram.  Her feed is filled with professionally shot images and promotions for her acting roles.  But her recent IG stories revealed a behind the scenes glimpse of her favorite apple cider vinegar drink tonic.

Stop being Heavy Handed & Start Smoothing the Cuticle for Deeper Deep Conditioning

Last week, I experienced one of the worst wash days of my life.  The whole ordeal was mostly my fault.  I initiated my wash day routine as normal. After shampooing, I stepped out of the shower to start the deep conditioning process.  Once my hair was saturated with conditioner, I placed a plastic bag and proceeded to do a few chores.  

Time flew by and I realized that I didn't have time to finish up the rest of my wash day routine so I made the worst decision of my entire life....I went to bed.  The next morning, I thought I'd awaken, rinse away the conditioner, then easily pick up where I left off.  

Instead, I found myself having to deal with tangled, unhappy hair.  It was a disaster.  I thought saturating my hair with ample amounts of conditioner would shield me from this horrible outcome but I was sadly mistaken.  Days later, I was reminded that putting a ton of product on your hair isn't the key to proper conditioning.  In order to achieve smooth, well-conditioned hair, I had to do exactly the opposite.

Why Saying "I need to" is a Form of Limiting of Self-Talk

This year, I didn't create a ton of resolutions.   Instead, I decided to simply to observe my behaviors in real-time to determine what areas I needed to make a change.

My main focus this year is maintaining a high level of vibration as often as possible.  This means carrying around positive energy that helps me to attract more of what I desire.  

Last week I experienced a breakthrough.  I uncovered a limiting habit that was holding me back.  On the surface, this habit doesn't seem all that bad.  We probably do this without even a second thought.  If you have a tendency to say to yourself "I need to do xyz," I invite you to alter this habit slightly, and here's why...

Kayla Nicole Reveals the "Serum Stack" that Creates Her Flawless Skin.


As you all probably know, my favorite thing to discover on Instagram are the beauty products loved by semi-celebrities.  I'm obsessed with unsponsored, behind-the-scenes glimpses of what the girlies are using to create amazing skin.  

And I love sharing the beauty secret reveals with you.

Model & tv-hostess, Kayla Nicole, has been glowing lately.  Perhaps it might have something to do with a recent reconciliation with her NFL beau Travis Kelce.  Or, maybe it's because she discovered a routine that makes her skin look unreal.

Mascara Cocktails// The Makeup Artist Trick for Creating Spectacular Lashes.


Wearing a mask every day has really brought my attention to the fact that I've really neglected my eyes.  I didn't really notice the tiny fine lines forming until I started covering half my face.  Now that I know, I've decided to take immediate action.  

My first plan of action is to smooth out and brighten my eye area with the help of Peace Out Retin A Stick.  

Phase Two of my plan involves paying a bit more attention to making my eyes appear more captivating.  Unfortunately, I was cursed with small eyes and even tinier lashes so I've got my work cut out for me.

Peace Out Created a Retinol Eye Stick and I Must Have It!

 I own a lot of beauty products.  A lot. But there's one critical ingredient missing from my collection that I can no longer be without... retinol. 

If you're serious about slowing the signs of aging, retinol is a must-have.  

Retinol is basically a skin super-hero with the ability to do all of the following:

-Clear Acne

-Face Discoloration

-Brighten Skin

-Eliminate and Prevent Wrinkles.

Is there anything retinol can't do?  There's this woman I stumbled on Youtube years ago who looked waaayyy younger than her age.  Her secret? Retin A on a nightly basis.  Retin A is a prescription-strength version of retinol that sometimes causes visible peeling and irritation.  Those with sensitive skin prefer retinol to avoid the undesirable side effects.   I have a tube Retin A that I use from time to time, but I'm never consistent because of the excessive dryness and peeling.

Instead of giving up on Retin A altogether, my alternative is to incorporate retinol somewhere in my daily rotation.  Most brands offer a retinol creme but I'm already in love with Kiehl's Ultra Nourishing Creme and I don't want to let go. 

Thankfully, a new retinol product came along that is literally a dream come true.

Let's Talk About What Happens When You Step Out In Faith.

Not long ago, I wrote an article sharing the story of a woman who manifested her dream home in Bali. Within days of writing the article, an old friend reached out to catch up.  During our phone convo, I asked her to fill me in on what she's been up to for the past year. 

It turns out that her life has been on a positive trajectory for the past year.  When we last spoke, she was trying to gain her footing as a new entrepreneur and decided to move back home with her family to limit monthly expenses.   At one point was contemplating even selling her car. 

Fast forward to 2021 and her situation has completely turned around.  She has multiple clients and is ready to move into her dream apartment next month. I bet you're wondering how she went from crashing at her parent's place to moving into an apartment near downtown.  

Simple.  She followed the exact same formula as I shared just days ago. 

Let's discuss.

Weekends are the perfect time to experiment with new makeup looks.  With only a month or so left in winter, it's not too early to start fantasizing about warm summer afternoons.   I long for the day where we can expose our entire faces in public again. When that day arrives, I'll be rocking a cheeky glow.

You might ask yourself, what's a cheeky glow?  It's a state of existence where you appear to be blushing and glowing all at once.  It's absolutely mesmerizing and I'm going to tell you exactly how to do it. 

Watch This Manifestation Video and Learn How to Create Your Future.

This year,  I really wanted to hone in on my ability to manifest.  Whenever I want to improve a skill, I seek out others who've achieved what I desire.  Today we're going to study the manifestation testimony from a young lady who lives in her dream home in Bali.

I love drawing inspiration by the experience of others. Being inspired essentially means that we're "filled someone with the urge to feel or do something (creative)."  So let's learn from her story and be inspired to create our own manifestation success.
