L'oreal Voluminous Mascara

I just started using this mascara this week, and I LOVE it! The formula is SO smooth and the "Blackest Black" mascara is incredibly dark and makes your eyes just pop!
I also love that it's not hard to take off. I've tried other mascara's where, even though they were not waterproof, they were still a PAIN to take off at the end of the day. The thing about it is, you don't want to have to pull and tug at the area's around your eyes since it's such a sensitive area so I like my mascara's to be dark BUT not so heavy that I can't remove them. So be sure to check out this mascara in the future!

Mielle Organics Mint Almond Oil

I love using oil for my dry scalp and my hair routine. Recently, I wanted to try a new product and I found this at Target and I LOVE it! This smells SO delicious! Even my boyfriend has been loving and smelling my hair! I've been following the LCO Method, which you can check it out by clicking on the link!

Elastic QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Leave In

I believe I've shared how awesome this is before, BUT I have to share it again because it's SO fantastic! This leave in keeps my hair nice and moisturized. The creamy texture allows it to really seep into my thick hair and with the method I use, I've noticed my hair experiencing less breakage by using this leave in so I definitely recommend it! I got mine at Walgreens, so check there! (If you can't find it, you can always try Amazon Prime as well).

Carol's Daughter The Green Supreme Leave In Conditioner

Do you see a pattern? I LOVE Leave In's! haha The reason being, is that my hair is naturally VERY dry and so I have to make a concerted effort to keep my hair moisturized. Moisturized hair is stronger, won't break, and is healthier so it's important to me that I follow a strict routine. Check out how I use my favorite new leave in here.


ASMR FOR RELAXATION

If you're not familiar with this amazing technique, then you're missing out! I love to listen to ASMR videos while I'm working, relaxing, or even heading to sleep. I have several that I rely on for different things. There are some ASMR videos meant for when you need comforting, some for when you're having a panic attack, and some to even help you meditate.

This week, one of my favorite ASMRtists (a play on the words ASMR and artist) released this video and it REALLY relaxed me. I tend to react to both visual and audio cues, what about you? Let me know in the comments!
TIP: The best way to get the effects is to wear headphones while listening

Rihanna's Wild Thoughts Look

Rihanna dancing at the Grammy's 2018 was EVERYTHING! I'm not a fan of the song #WildThoughts by #DjKhaled and I can't say that I loved the audio of this performance BUUUTTT Rihanna dancing for her life and just having the best time WAS EVERYTHING! I was ready to start my week after watching her sway her hips and move her body.

I also am completely and totally in love with her weight gain. Our society tends to focus a lot on weight loss and we often congratulate women for losing weight-even if it's not healthy. Well, I'm going to mention the obvious and say that Rih Rih has gained weight and I am TOTALLY in love with it! She looks like a Goddess, a powerful woman and I am absolutely HERE for it! Then seeing her move her body like a Queen at this performance was just EVERYTHING! <3
