We all have those days where all we want is what we can’t have. Whether it be less wrinkles, straight hair, the perfect body, long eyelashes, we’ve all been there. I was one of those people who was born with extremely long eyelashes. No idea where they came from or which family member I got them from but I really never paid any attention to them until the eyelash extension craze started a few years ago. Almost everyday someone will ask me where I get my lashes done and if I love having lash extensions. Obviously, they’re a little taken aback when I say they are 100% natural and immediately want to know my lash secrets!
Living in the era of the sheet mask, how do you know which is right and beneficial for your skin? I’ve rounded up my favorite picks for all skin types that have been my personal favorites for the past year. Surprisingly enough, I JUST started using sheet masks about 6 months ago and have completely fallen in love. They are so easy to throw on and lounge around or even get work done around the house while still getting an amazing facial. I’ve tested out hundreds at this point and have only found a handful that I’ve actually seen great results with.
Since I can remember I was always someone that absolutely had to wash my hair every single day or I didn’t feel clean. Then, I started getting my hair colored more and more and realized my color started fading quicker and quicker with the frequency I was washing my hair. Once I became self employed I realized I could probably get away without washing my hair for a day and just throw it up in a ponytail. That one day turned into 3-5 days and I started only washing my hair maybe once or twice a week. I guess slathering my scalp with dry shampoo became the norm at one point. Except that every time I would go in to see my hair stylist she would have to deal with a disgusting mess that was called Ashley’s hair!
By now, most of you are very aware that I had major shoulder surgery in January of this year. With that came the realization that I wouldn’t be able to work out for months… Even after a little over 2 months, I’m still not cleared to work out. I tried to go for a run last weekend and made it a mile and was majorly paying for it over the next week. So I’m back to doing minimal walking and trying to eat healthy. Who knew my body would literally start packing on the pounds in places I never saw cellulite… Talk about depressing. Since I’m not able to do much to get in shape I reached out to Novopelle about their Novo Lipo, or Ultrasonic Lipo to see if they could help with some minimal fat reduction in areas that just wouldn’t get toned.
Do yourself a favor and don’t let your scalp end up like this guy; dead and dry!
Alright ladies, it’s time to talk about that embarrassing topic no one ever wants to admit they have. Any guesses… I’ll just throw it out there; dandruff and dry skin. In the big scheme of things its not a HUGE deal but its definitely a downer if it’s something you have to worry about everyday. I’ve partnered with Dove Hair to share my experience with their new Derma Care Scalp Pure Daily Care Anti-Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner and boy is it a life changer. Whether you have dandruff or an itchy scalp due to dry skin, you will love these products.

Hey everyone!! I wanted to share a quick tutorial with everyone on how to use the new T3 Twirl 360! As most of you know, I don’t ever curl my hair but fell in love with this curler that I had to test it out and give everyone a quick how-to! I’ve also never used an iron that literally spins itself! This curling iron utilizes gyroscopic digital technology to detect the motion of your hand, and automatically propel the barrel in the desired direction. The application of the technology, typically used in space exploration, is a first for the hair tools category. Pretty awesome, if you ask me! Keep an eye out for a Youtube tutorial soon! For now, you get photos! Here is a quick start guide for those of you who have never used this curler before. There will be photos but if you’re in a hurry and want to test the curler out without photos, then this should be helpful!
By now, most of y’all know I got another itch to chop my long locks off and actually went through with it this time. A whopping 9″ was cut off, plus a little more in the back! Every time I would head to the salon for my very predictable cut and color, I would always rave about wanting to cut my hair shorter. NOT short, but shorter! And overtime, I would chicken out and just do a quick trim. Continue Reading
