Smooth and Shiny Hair with Texture Tame plus Giveaway!

You all have heard my hair complaints time and time before. If you can't recall from previous past posts, here's a quick refresher; I hate my hair! Okay, hate is a strong word, perhaps difficult and hard to manage better describes it. Basically, my hair is thin, frizzy and wavy. The three worst hair types rolled onto one head and that's why you often find me hiding in a hat. When I was a young girl, I would dream of thick, shiny, straight hair where washing and going was the dream scenario. Alas, years later, I've learned to accept what god gave me and rely on good hair products to do it's job. 

Today, I've collaborated with Dermstore and their at-home frizz eliminating system called Texture Tame. After just a few short weeks of using the 3-step at home treatment, I've already noticed a difference. My hair has less frizz and is smoother and shinier. Here are a few before and after pictures where I've noticed a difference:
Picture taken 3 months ago prior to using Texture Tame. My hair is frizzy and dull.

Picture taken three weeks ago when I just started Texture Tame. I had just gotten my color re-done plus a conditioning treatment so the frizz is a bit tame here. 

Picture taken yesterday after using Texture Tame for 3 weeks. My hair is noticeably smoother, shinier and frizz free.

Here is Texture Tame's 3 step at-home process to permanently eliminate frizz and dullness: 

Step 1: Eliminate Treatment. This step takes 30 minutes and only needs to be applied every 3 months. Locks in shine and smoothness.
Step 2: Moisture Lock Treatment.  This step takes 15 minutes and can be used once a week to keep hair looking shiny and soft.
Step 3: Finish Treatment.  This step can be applied as often as needed to dry or damp hair. It helps enhance shine and protect hair from any additional damage. 
I want to give you the opportunity to try out Texture Tame and change your hair forever! Enter the giveaway below and become hooked on shiny, smooth hair!

Today I’ve partnered with Simply Stylist and Dove to talk about my new favorite antiperspirant. I’ve been using deodorant for as long as I can remember and I’ve noticed Dry Spray Antiperspirant cans on the shelves. I've always been curious to try it but thought, what if I don’t like it? Why change what works for me. Fast forward to now! I was asked to give it a try and got excited because here was my chance to do a little change in the new year.

I was given two options to try; one was the Cool Essentials and the other, Nourished Beauty. They both have refreshing scents which got my approval right from the start. My days are consistently jammed pack from working an 8-5 job, to anything in between, to everything after work. I tend to perspire frequently so it’s important for me to stay fresh, dry and smelling good throughout the day. The Dove Dry Spray made me instantly dry, gave me 48-hour protection and left my underarms completely moisturized. Most importantly, it left no visible residue on my clothes.

I’ve now added the Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant as a daily necessity, even carrying it in my bag as my morning go-to.

My Daily Retreat with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite

Life can be hectic for me on a daily basis. From work to blogging and everything in between, I cherish my moments of solitude. Since I was a little girl, there was nothing I enjoyed more than laying in my bed with a good book. These days, I've replaced the old fashioned hard covered book with the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite. When I'm at work, I dream about the moment I can pick it up, crawl into bed and read the latest book I picked off the Amazon website. 

The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite has a lot of great features, my favorites being the lightweight design, the long lasting battery life, and a front light that's easy on your eyes. I also love the huge selection of e-books you can download from fiction, to autobiographies, to romance novels. The options are endless! 

I hope I inspired you guys to take a few moments to yourself this holiday season. Get away from the stress, put your phone down and pick a great book to read on your Amazon Kindle Paperwhite.
