Growing Out My Pixie Cut- Month 8

Growing Out My Pixie Cut
We have now arrived to month #8 of the growing out my pixie journey and my hair is still wild. By now I've surpassed my ideal hair length which means that I desperately need to cut it. It's been funny to see everyone around me notice how long my hair has grown. My co-workers will sometimes just tell me out of the blue how long my hair has gotten since I started working with them. I never knew that my hair grows this quickly because I always assumed that I wasn't patient enough to grow out my hair. I cannot emphasize how many times I failed to grow out my bangs, so for me to grow out everything is sort of a big deal to me. In this latest update I'm going to show you how my hair currently looks and also share two new hair products that have been working really well with my hair.

The Dry Shampoo for Dark Hair

Salon Grafix Play It Big Volumizing Dry Shampoo
I've had a love/hate relationship with dry shampoo for the past few years. As a lazy girl with curly hair, I don't like washing my hair very much. Washing it daily only causes my hair to get really dry and frizzy, so I like to go two days without washing to keep my hair as healthy as possible. In between washes I love using a dry shampoo to absorb the oil near my scalp and also add some volume to my hair, the problem is that most dry shampoos leave a white cast on my hair. If you have dark hair then you know my pain but I finally found the solution- a clear dry shampoo. This is revolutionary stuff! In this blog post I am going to introduce you to my latest hair obsession, the Salon Grafix Play It Big Volumizing Dry Shampoo.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream
As you all may know by now, it doesn't get too cold here in San Diego but that doesn't mean that my hands don't get dry. Something that people tend to forget is that California is a desert and our climate tends to be pretty dry, especially if you don't live near the coast. In recent weeks the air has become extremely dry which is confusing my oily skin a lot and also making my hands uncomfortably dry. I first heard about the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream thanks to my brother who has been a huge fan of this highly moisturizing and lightly scented hand cream for about 3 years now. I know, the beauty blogger discovered a product thanks to someone who doesn't care much about beauty products. The hand cream that I'll be talking about today is a spin-off of Neutrogena's much-loved Norwegian Formula, but does it live up to the original version?

Makeup for Work

Makeup for Work
I've been extremely busy at work the past few weeks and I honestly haven't had much time to play around with makeup. Last week the place I work at opened their second location. I know that doesn't sound like a big deal but when you're talking about a small business a second location is a huge deal. I've been taking a lot more shifts and responsibilities which has in turn slowed down my blog and YouTube just a bit. Since I've been busy I decided to film a quick tutorial right before I left to work on Tuesday. This tutorial is great for any working woman, student, or busy mom.

Topshop San Diego Launch Party

Topshop San Diego Launch Party
Pssst... I have something to tell you. San Diego finally got it's very own Topshop/Topman! It took a few years but now San Diegans won't have to drive up to Los Angeles or shop the limited collection of Topshop clothing at Nordstrom. I first went to Topshop back in 2011 when I traveled to Manchester and I remember specifically telling my friend Sofia to take me to a Topshop after hearing so much about it on YouTube. Fast forward a few years and now I'm getting invited to the launch party which was a bit hard to believe. Me? Going to the Topshop launch party? But I'm not even cool enough to be there! Which was true but at least I got to meet Devendra Banhart, one of my favorite musicians since high school.
