Product Junkie Alert: Shea Moisture's Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo

I swear Shea Moisture has the longest names for there products lol, but there items just keep getting better and better. This shampoo worked great for my dry and dirty hair. Of course it doesn't sud up like a typical shampoo but  I have grown use to that and it hasn't bothered me.

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo's claim to fame :
Our gentle, all-natural shampoo will help soften,moisturize and repair damaged, over-processed hair 

So I really do feel like this was a accurate description to what it did for my hair, the smell of course was the same as that masque that I use by this part of the line and it is a keeper. I grabbed this shampoo on sale this week at CVS for 8.99, this will be in rotation for sure. 


P.S. This is my second day ponytail I shampooed with Shea Moisture, Conditioned with Organix Macadamia Oil and used EcoStyler for hold. 


So this is a gold/green color by Forever 21, I picked this up in the store for 2.80.

DIY Makeup Vanity For Less Than $50

So as you guys know I am a bit obsessed with makeup and my collection has outgrew my space in the bathroom, so I have been searching for an inexpensive makeup vanity. I have searched everywhere and was not able to find anything that was less than 300 bucks and of course I was not willing to spend that much so I figured that I could make one for much less. I jumped in the car last Saturday and headed to Ikea, I picked up the desk for 20 dollars, the mirror for 10 dollars and a HD lamp for 10 bucks(plus tax, that brought me to a total of 42 dollars and some change). The whole desk took me about 3 hours to put together those directions are insane( lol)! Anyhoo, I was very pleased with how it turned out the jars that I keep my brushes in cost me nothing since I recycled them instead of throwing them away!

P.S. I took my mini twists out they held up good for 30 plus days and I plan on rocking a bun for Thanksgiving, my birthday is next week and I'm still not sure how I will wear my hair :(

Georgia Coast Vacation Trip

So I know I said I would post some pics last week but I had so much to do last week. Anyhoo, David and I had a great time we went to Sapelo Island which is apart of the islands of off the coast of GA. We also went to Savannah and Brunswick. I highly recommend this trip although Sapelo only allows guests when the festival is held during October unless you know someone on the island that you can stay with since there are no hotels.
