Top 5 Favorite Products

Over the past couple months, I have tested (and tossed) countless beauty products. It’s hard to find those perfect products that just work well. These five products that I’ll be talking about in this post are products that I use almost daily!

Crest Pro-Health HD

  • The Crest Pro-Health HD toothpaste is easily in my top favorite products of all time. I’m so impatient when it comes to whitening my teeth, like I want results overnight dang it. With this toothpaste, I can see results after one use. Use Step 1 and brush for one minute, then without rinsing, apply Step 2 to your toothbrush and brush for one minute. After that, you can rinse and see your results!

UNITE Hair Boosta Spray

  • If your hair is flat – even after you blow dry your hair – this product is what you need. Just spray this product onto damp hair at your roots and massage it in before blow drying. I can tell a difference from when I use it vs when I do not. Go from flat to fab with this Boosta Spray!

Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Tapioca Dry Shampoo

  • Do you want to know how many dry shampoos I have tried before finding this one? At least thirteen – no lie.  Other dry shampoos either made my hair look greasier OR made my hair feel straw-like. Gross. This product leaves my hair feeling like I just washed my hair. It is fresh and smells super clean! **UPDATE: They no longer make this dry shampoo so I have linked the new one I use 🙂

Clinique Stay-Matte Hydrator

  • Out of all the products I’ll be talking about in this post, THIS is my number one, go to, my ride or die, CANNOT live without product. My face is literally so oily – I just can’t sometimes. I have used every kind of face wash, toner, you name it, I’ve used it. I apply this product after I put my moisturizer on and before putting my make up on. It is a life saver!

Spin Pins

  • If you have read my blog post, Topknot: How to, then you know what these are. If not, this is a game changer when it comes to topknots or buns in general. These bad boys take the place of 50 bobby pins. Can I get an amen?! They are SO easy to use, and definitely worth it!

These are the products that I use all. the. time. Comment below or let me know on Instagram if you’ve used any of these products! Thanks for reading!



Happy New Year!

I honestly never make New Years Resolutions. Why? Because after the first week of January, I always break the resolution. This year I decided to make some and stick with them and I have a feeling this year is going to be the best year yet.

2017 Resolutions:

  1. Push myself to be the best I can be.
  2. Tithe regularly.
  3. Stop being lazy.
  4. Help others.
  5. Host more giveaways for my blog.

Funny story. This morning I was tired and I went to bed late last night because of New Years. I didn’t want to get out of bed, but I said “Self, one of your New Years resolutions is to stop being lazy. You need to get up and get ready for church.” So that’s exactly what I did. I got up, ate breakfast, got ready, and headed to church. When I got to church, I noticed that there were no cars in the parking lot. I was confused and then remembered two weeks ago the pastor said, “We will not be having service on Christmas Day and New Years Day. Enjoy time with your family!” I couldn’t believe it, but I was proud of myself for getting up and not breaking my resolution on January 1st!

Do you have any resolutions for 2017?
