L’Oréal Extraordinary Oil Review: Oil or Not to Oil ?

Oil or Not to Oil- That is the question   I’m back with yet another L’Oréal Paris hair care system, this time with the new L’Oréal Extraordinary Oil. This three-part system was right up my ally. Just wash, condition, and leave-in. Any more steps then that I can’t remember to do them consistently. This smells absolutely FABULOUS (a.k.a. Girly) and that makes me actually want to use it more than I should. While it looks like an oil, but it totally isn’t greasy. How does that even happen? I have no clue but I love it.

My first thoughts about this when I was approved from Crowdtap was (see Freebie sites & there breakdown): hmm maybe I should not apply this leave-in to the top of my hair which is extremely oily. BUT in order to test properly, I always try several ways in which you can apply it and with or without styling products. . INSERT PICTURE & ADD CAPTION FOR DISCLOSURE Testing First day: wash, conditioned, and added the leave into damp hair.  NOTES: Softness when washing, g…

Depression: the Ugly Truth

The Darker Days  What your about to read may take you by surprise, or it may be something you can relate to, or it may remind you of someone who has went through similar. This is not meant for a cry for help or a form of self-pity, it is meant as a form of release, a form of empowerment, and to give some light to a situation you may not have seen. It is also documentation for my own insight on how much better I have become in my journey. Read further at your own risk. This had been taken from my journal………    First day in such a long time, that I felt the urge to cut. It totally sucks not knowing who you are from one day to the next. Pain can overcome every emotion I have and I just have to snap out of it. No matter the good in my life, no matter the good I have to look forward to, the demon known as depression will find a way back into my life. Stealing every joy, every goal, every good thing I’ve accomplished. He turns his ugly cloud over my head and makes me want to give up or go bac…

Pure Vital Beauty:Natural Polish Remover *Review

The Natural WayHave you ever thought I wish there was an alternate to the horrid smell of polish remover? I mean basically we all have, right? I simple chalked it up to being one of the many unfair things we as women have to deal with. Beauty is pain so they say but should also include something pertaining to smells since there are many other things that we smell foul, think Nair. I had seen this “natural” version on Amazon and been contemplating the purchase but was so fearful that it would be a waste of money. But as a product tester and reviewer I just could not resist it any longer and made the purchase.

I waited to redo my chipped glitter polish nails till these arrived. As I read the instructions I was even more skeptically if this would work. It said to leave on your nails five minutes, which I did. When I went to wipe the polish off, I could see that it took away the shine but NO POLISH.  I chalked this up to maybe I didn’t leave it on there long enough. Then I decided to put i…

Influenster VoxBox Review*L'Oréal EverPure Repair & Defend

L'Oreal Lowdown Those of you who read my blog regularly already know how I am going to start this review: THE SMELL. Sadly, I have to say this smell isn’t for me. Don’t get me wrong isn’t bad just not what’s the word I’m looking for, “girly” maybe. The smell is crisp and clean. Best way to describe this would be a unisex smell.  Men would totally steal this in the shower and not think twice about it. First ImpressionOk, so the first days I tried it my hair went into a rebellious stage and continued this for the first few uses; frizz was out of control, it was unmanageable, and I wanted to seriously cry. This was common when I switch shampoos and conditioner but I couldn’t help but wonder if this was the formula itself. As with any product testing I write details on the things I did while testing. Which lead to the realization IT WAS ME. I know what you’re thinking: how can I create frizz? Right?  Here’s how, those days I left my hair twisted up into a towel till it dried.  Ugh, …

Gymboree New line

Newborn Gifts
This company is a mom's dream come to true. I was introduce to them some time ago and fell  in love with the prices and the quality they provide in these children clothes. Not to  mention the absolute cuteness in design selection. Mom's if you are not familiar  you are definitely missing out. So get to the point right? Haha
I am happy to inform you that they now have a newborn line.When I got this email, I literally  could not wait to post and let you know and of course do some shopping for my new nephew,  Clark. I kinda wish he was a girl, although I have three nieces already. Just let me show you  why. (this post contains affiliate links) Are these not the cutest thing ever? What I wouldn't give to have my nieces be little again. But wait there's more.
They have the whole entire matching set for both girls and boys. What are you waiting on head over to Gymboree and check them all out. Come back and tell me which is your favorite in the comments or what did you ge…

Amber Small Glass Aromatherapy Bottles * Review

As someone in direct sales, I actively search to find ways to reach my customer in new ways whether it is in communication or suiting a need. It is necessary to stand out in this business with rapid growth of people signing up. With growing companies this can be hard. You have to develop relationships, continue to build them, and make sure that you are constantly creating new ones. Which also means I have to find creative ways to sample my products so that others take the initiative to use them and creating that connection with my customers. A few months ago I found some bottles to send my scented oils in so that people can smell the scent prior to buying it. While there was not anything wrong with the bottles I just felt they was plain and did not describe me as the other samples did. For example, instead of cutting my soap samples as simple square pieces, I cut mine in the letters M and L representing my company name, Macee Leigh.  In doing this I have left an impression, a mental a…

Down Payment on a home a boss

The New House
I was super anxious to add to my timeline the great new of us putting a down payment on the house. I sense of pride that I cannot begin to describe. Was it because of the fact that my whole life I have been told I will never have or amount to anything? A big part of it was. All those years of feeling inadequate was lifted like the sun shining on a summer day. No one could tell me nothing. I was on cloud nine and everyone congratulating us was icing on the cake. However, those feelings soon subsided and I realized that with every new venture comes a new set of concerns. While we have eagerly and anxiously awaiting them to bring it to our land (which has been delayed), we both realized that we just might have to look at the beauty for a while before we actually get to move into it.  But I should still be happy right? Excited? Yet I am overwhelmed with many thoughts and even dream about all the things that need to be done. MAIN CONCERN: where is all this money going to come …
