Bellami had a launch party for their new wig line at the Bellami Beauty Bar located in West Hollywood. I spotted many women with amazing makeup on there and I definitely knew they were awesome at either doing YouTube makeup tutorials and/or slaying with the Instagram photos. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to try any of the wigs on but hopefully in the future I can do so. It’s a fun thought to be able to quickly change your hair style and color without having to do it permanently.
There was an open bar and small hors d’oeuvres being served. I wish there was more vegetarian options but that’s ok it was a cute space, many people, and fun vibes.
I should have felt the hair to give you a better description but I got a bit distracted with socializing =P Check out my vlog above, I also unbag the goodie bag.
After 3 years, I finally went to the dentist. I know, I know wayyy too long especially since I’m one to be prone to cavities. I’ve always had weak teeth ever since I can remember unfortunately. For my first appointment they took various different xrays (even a panoramic one) and did my molds for my customized teeth whitening trey.
Turns out I have a few cavities and need to do a few crowns. Not that surprising and I am so thankful I don’t have to do any root canals! But what was surprising is that I have a few fillings that were done a bit incorrectly where it’s making it difficult for me floss. Thanks to my past dentist….lol jk but I was always wondering why floss would get stuck so then it’d discourage me to floss!
I wanted to quickly rave about this product because I use it every day. Over the last year I have been very intrigued with using natural deodorants. I mean why do we want harsh chemicals in that area? I personally use the Bombay Rose roll-on and I love that it’s simple for me to use and isn’t drying. For those looking for an anti-perspirant the roll-ons tend to work best for most but I have also heard the creams do well too. These deodorants aren’t listed as anti-perspirant btw.
The base ingredient is Magnesium which is great for your body. We generally are deficient in Mg so this is an easy to way to get a daily dosage. Magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in our bodies. Obviously very important! There are deodorant sticks and deodorant creams also available however I immediately gravitated to the roll-on since I don’t like touching creams.
When using the roll-on it does take a minute to dry but I really don’t mind. There have only been a few occasions where I felt like I needed to apply a 2nd time but again doesn’t bother me. When it comes to using a deodorant that actually doesn’t contain bad chemicals I’m totally on board.
I have heard that different scents work better for different people so be mindful of that!
Thought I’d try to do a quick video of new products I buy or receive so that you can better see what the products look like. I’m looking forward to trying the face/eye masks and ampoules most. Thinking about doing this more often!
Here are products from the Advanced Night Repair collection from Estee Lauder.
It has been a minute since I have gotten my hair done and thank goodness one of my newer gf’s, Renee, is a pro at coloring! She also is a Wella educator 🙂 Now, I will have to say I definitely wasn’t planning on having pink hair when I first walked in to see her haha. I honestly had no idea what I wanted. I was actually thinking of freshening up the blonde but wasn’t tied down to it. She asked me if I wanted to have pink in my hair and I just said why not! I have never had pink before so thought it could be fun. Renee darkened my base color and then did pink highlights. I have to say…I’m pretty obsessed and feel a bit sassier than usual =P (See below for before & after photos)
I decided to go to Indie Beauty Expo LA, at the California Market Center, this year and really enjoyed my experience! It’s a beauty expo where you get to see Indie brands and visit their booths to learn more about their products. There were many innovative products which I’m excited about trying. If you attend in the future, you’ll find many products are organic, natural, vegan, and cruelty-free.
Hi all! I’m splitting up my favorites this month into 3 separate videos because it would be a 40 minute video otherwise. Keep on the lookout for my haircare favorites & fashion/lifestyle favorites coming out soon!

I have had a few weeks to test these out and I still am impressed as I was from the start. You guys have NO idea what a freaking hair journey I’ve had the past few years. It was like my hair was fine then idk it just has felt off the last few years and it’s been driving me insane! It’s like my hair kind of likes a product for 2 seconds and then the next day just feels wack. Sometimes just feels weighed down or still dry to the point where it wasn’t holding curl well. It’s just been frustrating because I used to never have an issue really. I mean I do have an issue with wanting to wash my hair every single day so that is something that I’ve been working to lessen since I know that will just dry your hair out more.
Btw I wasn’t asked to do this blog post but definitely found some stand out products that work for me so I had to feature them!Read More
