Shave The Fluff

We live in a society where beauty rituals and procedures are part of our everyday routine. For better or for worse, we are always seeking faster and easier solutions, with the hopes to save time and look better. One of my biggest annoyances is hair fluff around my cheeks and the top of my lips….

A Fresh Start

Taking care of my facial skin has always been a challenge. Although I’m widely known for looking younger than my age, I still struggle with other things such as sensitivity and dryness. As I may have mentioned on previous blog posts, my skin is so sensitive that many products marketed for sensitive skin actually make…

No More Tap

Water consumption has always been a hot topic among health enthusiasm, self-aware people, and even politicians. Many countries, including Norway and France, spend a great deal to provide the highest quality water for their citizens, taking care of sanitation and the protection of the groundwater system. In the United States, the situation is a little…

Smooth Operator

We all have that one random cosmetic procedure that we are dying to try, but we put it off… either because it’s painful, too expensive, or simply too much work. For me, it has been laser hair removal. A professional hair removal service (on legs, for example) can cost an average of $500, and you…

Saving My Eyes Part I… or II… or M

I’m back with another amazing eye solution! If you have been following my blog from its beginnings, you may recall a few posts where I shared my burdening experience with chronic dry eyes. After my last post on the topic, a lot has happened. For example, I used Xiidra for 6 months, experienced many side…

Major Nail-Over

New year, new saving strategies. I’m always at par with latest beauty trends, but since the economy doesn’t always scream “happy,” I had to figure out a few tricks so keep my budget on track. There’s nothing better than getting my nails done at the salon… I simply don’t have to worry about doing them!…

Just A Little Aid

We all have something annoying that we have to deal with – in my case, it is my hair. In fact, I have a love/hate relationship with it. When I get my hair done, I love it, but the process into getting it to look great is a nightmare; it encompasses 1000000 styling products and…

Hair Madness

This week I’m totally focusing on my hair. Although I’ve done a great job growing it long (with diet, vitamins, hair masks, less chemicals, etc.) I still struggle with a few things, such as frizz, dryness, and bleakness (you see the relationship here?). This week I invested in purchasing new styling tools to aid in…

Smoothing It Out

It takes me a lot of have a “good hair day.” My hair is very wild and very dry, so in between the split ends and the frizzies I have quite a difficult time looking like a decent human being (it is possible, but it is hard). I have to use 5+ products to style…

Fall Must-Haves

It’s the first day of October, and for the first time this fall, we had a nicely chilly day, which is bittersweet. With the changes in season also comes new beauty routines, and one of the things that is always affected by these changes is my hair. The colder weather makes my hair stay in…

My Salon At Home 

Let’s face it, most of us can’t go a week without straightening our hair. I have frizzy and wavy hair, so not straightening my hair means that I’ll go a day looking like I got caught in a very humid tornado. I have found some products to help my hair stay in ultimate shape. But…

Shopping for 4K UHD Smart TV Round 5

I’m a tech junkie. I always have to buy the latest gadgets, and when it comes to technological upgrades like 4K UHD TV’s I can’t fall behind. Early this year, I purchased an LG 4K UHD TV, which is seriously one of the greatest out there. The image quality is fantastic, and the Smart setting…
