Just like our Revive shampoo I personally LOVE our Revitalize Conditioner. I go back and forth between this and our Smoothing Conditioner.

Hey girl long time no talk! I know I said 2019 was going to be different but I have a SUUUPER good reason for why I was MIA. I have joined the Monat Family! *Let me repeat myself for those of you in the back.* I HAVE JOINED THE MONAT FAMILY. Now some of you might know what Monat is, but if you are like me you probably are just now hearing about this brand. Today I am just going to introduce you to the world of Monat because there can be a lot of information and I am not trying to overwhelm you!
Well first things first. We are the #1 premium hair company in North America. I know isn’t that amazing?! Considering that Monat hasn’t even been around for 5 years that says a lot! With that being said Monat is an all natural based company. We pride ourselves on have safe products. Our products are vegan free, gluten-free, and sulfate free! I am so thankful to be part of a company that promotes safe products.
Q: How did you first hear about MONAT?
A:I first heard about MONAT on Instagram, (no shocker there) and I didn’t really think anything of them.
Q: What made you try MONAT products?
A: Funny story, because I kind of tried them on “accident”. I was following this girl named Erica (the most amazing boss babe ever) and she was hosting a giveaway on her page. Me, being me, I just HAD to enter the giveaway. I mean come on who doesn’t like free things? Well I won her giveaway and she sent me some samples to try out. So that’s how I first tried MONAT.
Q:Why did you start selling?
A: This question is so easy for me. I truly believe in MONAT products. I have always suffered from extremely dry skin especially on my scalp. I unfortunately have eczema on my scalp, so it is constantly dry, itchy, and flaky. When I used the samples the irritation I normally have on my scalp was almost non-existent. That is why I decided to start selling.
Q: Are MONAT products just for women?
A: Absolutely not. My boyfriend Justin uses our Black line which is more tailored towards men (women can use this line as well). We also have junior line, (for all the little ones in your family) as well as a Pet line (for your furry friends).
Q: What if I already love my shampoo and conditioner?
A: Keep using what YOU love, just keep in mind we are so much more than shampoo and conditioner. We also sell styling products that are AMAZING! Hate how crunchy your hairspray makes your hair? DM me and we can talk!
Q: What is so good about the Rejuveniqe Oil?
A: You mean our liquid gold? This baby has 101 uses. No I did not stutter and yes you did read that correctly, 101 uses. Some of my favorite ways to use are oil include; oil treatments, adding a few drops to my moisturizer, putting it on my cuticle’s, and I love putting it on our puppies paws.
Want to know the exact 101 uses for our oil? Click here.
Well babes, what do you guys think? I am so excited to be selling MONAT, it has truly changed my life and my hair for the better. Don’t see the answer to your question? No need to worry! Text me, call me, dm me, or even email me about all things MONAT. I promise I won’t bite you… maybe!
Heyyy gorgeous! How are you today? I had a lovely 3-day weekend and ended up spending the majority of my time cleaning. While I was cleaning the house, I also finally cleaned all my make-up brushes and giiirrrrllll were they nasty!!! So I have decided to share my all time favorite make-up brush cleaner with y’all! Girl your mind is about to be blown away!
Truly I think we all have that dirty little secret that we don’t dare to admit! Yes even I’m guilty of not cleaning my makeup brushes enough! I know, how dare I commit this crime, but I mean who has the time to sit in the bathroom all day cleaning them?! Kudos to you if you have the time to do that, I commend you! For me, I am always headed somewhere, to do something, with someone. Or maybe something along those lines! I knew I needed to clean my brushes when the application of my makeup was not as “clean” as it typically is! So it was time again to bust out my all time favorite makeup brush cleaner. Are you ready?! Here we go! *Insert heart eyes*
“This professional-quality brush cleaner is a makeup industry cult-favorite that can be used on both natural and synthetic fibers, and it doesn’t leave an oily residue. It cleans, conditions, and deodorizes brushes in one step.”
This baby is a cult favorite for a reason, its amazing! If you don’t have this, you need it. Trust me if your mom/boyfriend/aunt/grandma asks, it was definitely a need not a want. If you’ve been searching for a makeup brush cleaner that is not only affordable but also effective then oooooooh girl, this is going to be your jam! You can clean your brushes and immediately begin using them again after about 30 seconds of them drying all from the comfort of your bed! Crazy girl, I know! I was in shock too! Also,I love the vanilla scent to this cleaner but I will say it can be a little overpowering if you have a sensitive nose!
Well loves, this is my holy grail makeup brush cleaner and hopefully it becomes yours as well! I’ll talk to you girls soon!

Boxycharm has got it going on with February’s After Glow box! *Insert heart eyes* After seeing everything that was in my box this month, you are going to want to sign up! Seriously you can not beat $21 a month for 4-5 full size products. Okay, okay, okay, I know I have blabbed on long enough so let’s go ahead and dive into the box!
Every month Boxycharm chooses a theme for their box and for February the theme is “After Glow”. As soon as I found out about the theme I was super excited. I trrryyyyyy my best not to peak at the spoilers (I’ll admit I at least need to know one item I’m getting) but, sometimes they just pop up out of no where!
This month Boxycharm is giving away ONE Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara! You can enter the contest on Twitter. Hurrrrrrry girl you still have 13 more days to enter! I mean it, go enter the contest right now to win a FREE mascara that is “Better Than Sex!”
Alright I have made you wait long enough let’s dive into this month’s box!

The total value of this box was $121!! *Insert Heart Eyes* Hooooney that means I saved $100 on this box! How would you spend your extra $100? If you are ready to sign up for your own Boxycharm Box you may use the link below!!
Heyyyy girl! How’s it going today? I hope it is going fan-flipping-tastic! If you are new here, welcome and if you aren’t new, welcome back! Today I am sharing my night-time routine with you! I just started getting back into the swing of having a night-time routine and I can already tell a difference!
Without further ado, grab your pink drink and let’s get started!
I start my taking my make-up off with a make-up remover wipe. My all time favorite are from Target and they are only $2.49. Let me say it louder for the people in the back… THEY ARE ONLY $2.49. I know I seriously can’t believe it either! I love these because they are also the ‘calming’ towelettes.
Once I have the majority of my make-up wiped off, I reach for my Clarisonic. I have the Clarisonic Mia2 (linked is the newest version) and I absolutely love it! When I am using my Clarisonic, my skin looks flawless. I don’t struggle with texture on the skin or dry patches when I am regularly using my Clarisonic.
Add in your favorite facial cleanser. Personally I have been using the Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cleanser. This product really helps my dry skin come back to life and leaves it as soft as a baby’s bum.
After cleansing my face I take a quarter size amount of my FIRMx Peeling Gel Exfoliant. This is also from Peter Thomas Roth. This is my favorite exfoliant because it is not abrasive, it is so gentle on the skin. This has been the only exfoliant I am able to use daily.
Take a clean cotton pad and splash a little bit of the Fresh Rose Deep-Hydration Facial Toner on it. Rub across your face to help hydrate and soften your skin. This helps to really cleanse your skin of impurities like blackheads and pores. Love this brand for more sensitive skin.
My skin has been more dry than normal this Winter so I have been packing on the moisture. I have been finishing up my night-time routine with my Josie Maran Argan Oil Light. I specifically chose the Light over the regular because of how much faster it absorbs into the skin. Perfect before bed time!
After I finish with my argan oil light I head to bed. I don’t know about you, but this girl needs her beauty sleep! I hope you enjoyed reading about my night-time routine. I will try to update this as the seasons change. Also if you would like to see my morning routine let me know!
Hello Love and welcome back to the blog! How are you today? I know it’s Monday, but it’s a new week with new goals! I am so excited to share today’s blog post! Upon getting a home and having some more bills on our plate Justin and I are really buckling down on how much we are spending these days. So with wanting to save some money I pulled out my crafty side and got to work. Below are all the details on how to make this adorable wreath. Enjoy!
Alright ladies and gents, besides the “burlap” ribbon this project only cost me $5 to make. Yes you heard me right, it only cost me $5 to make, and I have already made 2 of these. They are extremely easy to make and it truly looks like you bought them! Below are my 6 easy steps to making my Valentine’s Day Wreath.
Head to your local dollar store and choose the flowers you would like for your wreath. Also head down the Arts and Crafts aisle to pick up a 3-d foam circular wreath.
Once you get back home start by cutting off all the flowers. Try to cut them a tad closer to the flower as you will be sticking the stems into the foam wreath.
Once you cut all the flowers, decide what pattern you want. Start poking them into the foam to create your pattern.
Once all the flowers are on the wreath take your ribbon of choice and weave it through all the flowers to cover up the foam.
Once you have successfully weaved the ribbon through the entire wreath, take an additional piece of ribbon and tie it on the wreath to hand on your door.
Finally, hang your new wreath on your front door!!
That is it my loves! It was that simple to make this wreath! Of course you can use any flowers and ribbon that you choose. I specifically made mine for Valentine’s day, and I also plan to make one for St. Patrick’s Day.
Alright that is it for my DIY wreath! I truly hope you found this fun and exciting! If you would like to see some more of my current DIY projects let me know by leaving a comment below!

The tradtional Boxycharm is $21 and is typically valued around $120.00. To upgrade to BoxyLuxe costs an additional $28, bringing you to roughly $50.00 for the box. So you decide… is it worth it?!
Welcome back girly, long time no talk! Too long that is! I swear my life didn’t used to be this crazy (at least I don’t remember if it was! I am so excited because today we are finally talked about my Winter FabFitFun Box!! Oh my gosh girls, was this an amazing box or what?! I couldn’t believe all the goodies in there this quarter! So I will stop blabbing on and dive into the box! I mean that is why you’re here right?
Alright ladies, there were so many amazing choices this season. What poison did you choose? Or were you more like me this season and couldn’t make up your mind so you chose both, or maybe even all of them?! Whatever you decided on I’m sure you will love it. Here are the options I chose…
The first decision for me was easy. I didn’t need anymore gloves or head wraps, and honestly hair products are just a no brainer for me. So I chose the Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Mask
The Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Mask helps to “Seal split ends, strengthen hair, and make your tresses more manageable with this fortifying blend of argan oil and keratin components” $49.00
“Tip: After shampooing, leave mask in hair for 5 to 7 minutes, then rinse.”
This product is so amazing and I have already started to notice a difference.
The next decision was not easy for me at all!! I absolutely love jewelry and girl we know I love my hair products. So I ended up getting two out of the three choices. OOPS!
“How gorgeous is this necklace? It’s a minimalistic yet statement-making piece with its dainty, silver-plated brass chain and chic, silver-plated circle pendant.” $49.00
This necklace is the perfect gift for any working woman’s wardrobe. Honestly a must have statement piece.
Like I said earlier I love my hair products so I HAD to HAVE this dry shampoo. Besides I have had a travel size of this, its pure gold! I mean it should be for $44.00
“It’s so easy to achieve lust-worthy locks. Use this sulfate-free dry shampoo to absorb product buildup, oil, and impurities while soothing the scalp and restoring strength and softness.” with the Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo
“Tip: Spray 8 to 10 inches from scalp, then massage into scalp until product is completely absorbed.”
The next option was sort of easy for me as. I loved make-up whole heartedly, but I had so many eye-shadow palettes already. I also didn’t really want or need over the knee socks. So I ended up choosing the Sherrie Mathews Acupuncture Jade Stone Roller.
I was pretty excited about this roller! I have been into anything and everything anti-aging lately!
“It’s no wonder this anti-aging beauty tool has been used by empresses for centuries. The jade roller helps stimulate qi (energy) and promotes a feeling of facial relaxation.” $45.00
“Tip: Gently wipe clean with an alcohol pad after each use.”
Next were the items that you didn’t get to choose, but FabFitFun chose for you! The first items you could receive were Bite Beauty lipstick, Chic & Tonic 4-piece coaster set, or Brooke Burke Body Sliders.
I loved getting lipsticks, but I love getting them more when I REALLY didn’t want coasters or body sliders lol! “A high-impact lipstick in a peachy-nude shade, this lipstick is handcrafted to deliver intense moisture and creamy wear.” $26.00
“Tip: Exfoliate your lips beforehand to create a smooth base for the lipstick.”
Okay, so that one was good! The next item I could receive was either Way of Will Elevate Essential Oil Set or the Anthropologie X Mer-Sea & Co. Body Cream. If you knew me, you knew I did not need anymore lotion OR body cream so I was hoping I got the essential oils!
I received the “Natural/Ivory” one in my box this season and I love it! “Cozy up with this woven throw, which features a stripe design and cool fringe detailing.” $49.00
“Tip: Hand wash cold and lay flat to dry.”
This season my box totaled (without my extra add on) $335.00 and all I pay is $49.99 every season! Are you ready to sign up for your own FabFitFun Box? With code ‘WINTERFUN’ you can save $10 off of your first box!! Just use the link below to sign up!
