Shampoo Review & Calendar Idea

I wanted to take a while before reviewing the product, but I at least wanted to talk about it so here goes...
The shampoo is watery so at times it takes more than a pea sized amount to cover all of my hair. The color of the shampoo is pink, the way a grapefruit looks like from the inside AND it smells like grapefruit.
I think it is making my hair grow because it does feel longer, but I never measured it so I can't really be sure. I have been alternating my horse shampoo with a regular shampoo so as not to damage my hair.
It is pretty hard to remember when I used what shampoo so I have started a planner where I write what shampoo I used each day and in that small planner I am going to write what outfit I wore each day so as not to wear the same thing twice at least until I use everything in my closet. I just thought of the idea yesterday and I would love to share a picture, but the camera isn't charged and I have no idea where the charger is, since it isn't my camera. Let me give you a visual it is a pocket sized planner, with enough space to write things in on each day, and it is already pretty colorful because I use colorful pens. I have a calendar on my closet door and I don't know why I don't use it, but it's this one...
I need to think of how to use it because it's separated to add more than one person on it and the squares in each day are pretty small. If any ideas come to mind, let me know.

Shower Caddy & Hair Update

Yesterday I mentioned that I was tired of carrying my shower caddy into the bathroom and I noticed that some people might not know what that is, so I will explain and then showcase what I have in my shower caddy. Basically, there is one bathroom in my house so it's shared with everyone and I have some of my shower products stored in my room, which I take to the restroom once I am going to take a shower. I have all of my things inside a small basket....
So here are some of the things that I keep in my shower caddy...
My shampoos and conditioner, my styling creme, my paddle brush, my detangling comb, and a wide tooth comb.

Honey Apple Body Wash
Apricot Scrub
Mint Chocolate Flavored Lip Balm

Shower Caddy Process:

I use my lip balm after getting out of the shower just to add moisture to my lips. 
Before getting into the shower I use my Apricot Scrub although I don't use it all the time. I am about to run out. 
My body wash is actually Johnson's Baby Wash, but that doesn't mean an adult can't use it. I love it because it lasts a long time and it has a pump so I can easily put it on my net bath sponge.
I use my wide tooth comb when I get in the shower right before washing my hair so that every piece of hair can get wet and because my hair might be tangled a bit. Then I add the shampoo that I am using that day and spread it throughout my hair with the detangling comb then I wash out my shampoo and add my conditioner and again I spread out the conditioner with my detangling brush
Once I get out of the shower I brush my hair out with my paddle brush, but if my hair is too tangled I add some styling creme to remove the knots. 

Yesterday I went to the store and bought the conditioner that I included in the pictures above and I used it later that night. The conditioner is awesome, I added some throughout my hair and I couldn't feel it in my hair at all, it felt as if my hair absorbed it. Once I washed it out my hair was so soft and there weren't as many tangles as usual. When I got out of the shower and brushed my hair I didn't need to add any styling creme because my hair was so soft that I didn't even need to brush it. 
Here is what my hair looks like as of today...
I made a weird face so I covered it with this beautiful leopard.
Notice that my hair is naturally curly and you can see how short it is on one side of my head. I grabbed some hair on another side of my head and held it to show how long it is if straightened. My hair hits right above my chest area as you can see in the picture.

Horse Shampoo: Two Day Update

As I said before I am going to be using my new Horse Shampoo and updating how my hair is throughout the process. I started using the Shampoo on Sunday and I heard that instead of using it every time I wash my hair I need to alternate or else it can damage my hair, so, I used Albeto's V05 Shampoo (the family shampoo) last night because I didn't want to take my shower caddy into the shower with me since it is pretty heavy with all my shampoos and body wash.
We just bought the V05 shampoo and it works for my hair, but I have my own that I want to finish before I start using the one above. Tonight I will use the Horse Shampoo again and then tomorrow I will use my shampoo which is the Suave Professionals: Almond+Shea Butter bottle. 
Anyways, back to the 2 Day Review...
I take showers at night and always clean my hair so, I'm already used to using shampoo daily. I used my Hairvitalize: Horse Shampoo Sunday night and after taking a shower I dried, brushed, and braided my hair. I usually put my hair up in a bun to go to sleep, which I will do today to test out which method is better. Before braiding it I added Sunsilk's Hydra TLC Styling creme because it helps smooth out my hair and removes knots and tangles. 
 The thing that I did notice was that my hair was dryer than usual, but I didn't use any conditioner which I need to buy this weekend so next week I'll let you all know how that goes and if there is a difference after using the Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. When I woke up the next morning I noticed that my hair was a bit frizzy, I'm going to see if that was because of the braid by wearing a bun tonight. When I braid my hair after showering my hair dries faster and makes my hair too curly. 
I hope this helps and I will keep updating everyone.

I really want to grow out my hair, so I decided to buy some horse shampoo because I  heard it works. So, tonight I am going to try it out and see what it does to my hair. I know my hair isn't going to grow right away and this is probably not going to make my hair grow any faster, but it's worth a try. I got this shampoo for $1, so I'm not really wasting a lot. I will try to do weekly updates and a small review about it at the end of this week.

Thrifting Wednesday

Hello everyone, 
On Wednesdays one of the thrift store near my house has a bunch of items that are 50% off. I really wanted to go today, but I have work to do and it is too hot to walk there. So instead I went to one that is near my house and next to the bus stop that I got off at. I had gone the day before and I found 2 plastic hands (a purple one and a green one) that holds your rings for $1.50 each, but decided not to buy them that day. So, today I went back to get them and they were gone I was so sad and the lady that sells there isn't much help. I hate that thrift store because of her lame customer service and the fact that she watches you until you actually like something and charges you a high price. So, I ended up looking around and I got a pink hard shell case for a pair of sun glasses that I have for $1. 

The inside is a light skin tone color and the outside is a lighter pink. I think the picture above adds dark shadows to it. 
And I found a beautiful necklace while browsing the shelves. It was inside a small Ziploc bag and it is pretty dirty and is missing a stone, but I couldn't leave it. It  looks like something off of Jewel Mint, but it was only $1.  I can't wait to wear it.

Lavender Hair

I know that the last time I came on I wanted to cut and dye my hair which I did, but it wasn't what I wanted so know I finally figured out what I want to do to my hair although it isn't going to happen for a while. I want to let my hair grow out so it can look something like Demi Lovato's long layered hair, which I love. I also want to dye my hair an odd color, but none the less very me. I love purple and lavender is a nice pale shade of that color. If I could I would dye it right now, but I know that I won't be allowed to do it and it wouldn't come out right. So, here are a few pictures of the hair I want and a video that makes me want it even more...Enjoy!
I found the picture below and I thought it was pretty and I would love to do that hair color as well....

And finally the video that i might use one day...


At the Moment...

TOMS have been a huge trend for a couple of years now, and I do think that they are my style and a good cause, so, this weekend my sister wanted to go buy herself a fake pair since her old ones had gotten ruined due to the rain. I tagged along and after walking into Payless and seeing a cute pair I bought them. So, now I'm obsessed with them, even though they are not going to last a long time, I can already tell. So here they are my new pair of shoes...

Update...Coming Back!

I have stopped writing on my blog for a while and that is because I don't have a camera to upload OOTDs and I am finishing my Winter quarter at school. This upcoming week I am going to be dedicating my time to my finals which means that I get to come back online really soon. Other than school I haven't done much these past weeks.
I go to school really early and the time change made me even lazier, but I have not been dressing up as much as I'd like. I have been wearing a lot of t-shirts, sneakers, and at times I have worn sweats. So, I am into make-up right now more than clothes. I have been doing my makeup as much as I can because every day I am inspired by something totally different and I like to express myself with eyeshadow. i really want to do my make-up like Demi Lovato because I currently saw her MTV documentary (if you haven't watched it yet go watch it online, she is now my idol) and loved how she looked...

 Also, yesterday I was sorting my jewlery and saw all my old bracelets and I am going to bring them back. I wore them to sleep last night and all day today, but took them off a few hours ago because I could already feel the bands digging into my wrist.  Below are a few old pictures of me wearing them...
The bracelets from above ripped so I only have the one in between the other two... I just have to fix it.

There are others that have been added to my collection so my arm is almost fully covered. I love the way bracelets look when they are stacked, do you?

Hope to come back online soon,

Hello Everybody!
I'm sorry for being MIA, but it's midterms and I am hard at work. Please excuse me if I don't post daily. On the bright side this weekend I dyed my hair a nice Cool Black since brown was not working for me. And on Monday I cut my hair so pictures will be coming soon.

Thrift & Gift Haul

Hello Everyone!
I made a haul video yesterday and uploaded/edited it on YouTube today. So, I'm sorry for the wait. As you can see on the video my hair is the same and that's because I told my sister that I wanted to cut my hair and she decided to tag along and cut hers as well, so I'll be doing that sometime today or whenever my sister and I have free time. I didn't want to disappoint my followers and so I went to the thrift store to give everyone one of the things I had promised to do. I went to a local Vintage Thrift store and looked through the dollar section only and I found a bunch of cool clothing. I tried some on and ended up getting 11 shirts. I plan on going again sometime soon because they restock this Monday. But for now I'll stick with what I have. Enjoy my haul...

Sorry for the length of the videos and my lack of combining the videos, but YouTube didn't allow me to have a video longer than 15 minutes.

1st Outfit of the Day Video!

Hello everyone,
I am so excited for tomorrow I have been looking forward to go thrifting and going to the salon all week. I am going to try to do a thrifting haul so look for that tomorrow. Today I did my OOTD via video to try out the camera for tomorrow, it worked, but I found out that my sister's computer does not have editing software and I don't want to download anything. So, please excuse tomorrow's haul if you see a lot of errors/bloopers. I edited today's OOTD with YouTube's video manager, but it took me a while to fix it so I might end up posting the haul video late by hours or days.For now I will leave everyone with this video. This was one of the shirts my mom's friend gave me.
Wish me luck.

New Clothes

This Friday I am going to go thrifting after getting a haircut and I have decided that I want to do a collective haul afterwards. I don't know if I can videotape it because I am using my sisters camera to update my OOTDs and it doesn't have any space left because she has pictures from our vacation on there. I will try to make a video since I have clothes that I received recently. My mom's friend gave her two big bags full of clothes for my sister and I. I want to share what I got although I waited to show the things because my mom was washing them for us. Expect to see a lot of Betty Boop t-shirts. Also, I am going to buy some clothes at the thrift store so I will include that. I saved up and am planning to look through the dollar section in my thrift store since they have nice things hidden in there. I might wear one of the shirts I was gifted tomorrow, if so I will do an outfit of the day.

Can't Wait Friday

This weekend I was going to cut my hair, but I didn't have time so I decided to go this Friday and I am going thrift shopping afterwards. I looked for a few more pictures of models with beautiful hair because there is a Beauty Salon near my home that has a poster with the exact cut I want but I can't find the picture online. I don't want to go to the salon that has the poster because I have never gotten my hair cut there and would rather go to a salon that I trust. So, again I will bombard you with pictures and hope to find the poster I have been looking for, if not, you will have to wait until Friday to see what I got.
Looks somewhat like the picture below but the bangs are not side swept bangs...
Hairstyles I would like to do include...

Make-up by Gucci: Meow Entry

MakeupbyGucci was hosting a contest for her subscribers and I entered in her Facebook contest which was to do an inspired Hello Kitty makeup look and take a picture. I need people to vote for my entry since mine is one of the plainest pictures and all of the other contestants went all out on the look. I actually went for a light pink color throughout. I wore pink lipstick/lip gloss, light pink eye shadow, pink blush, and I finished my eyes with mascara and white eyeliner on my waterline. I also wore gold bow earrings which you can't see on the picture and I wore a pink heart necklace and my pink Hello Kitty name necklace to complete the look. Thanks to everyone and I hope everyone has a great day!

My Hair Diary

This past year I went to Mexico to visit my grandparents. During my vacation I wanted to get a haircut with a lady that cut my hair once and did an amazing job, but I didn't get a chance to visit the salon. So, this weekend I am going to cut my hair and I searched for a few looks that are similar to what I want and I wanted to share them...

So, I know that I just bombarded everyone with a bunch of different pictures. As you can see I want bangs that's for sure and I want my hair to stay long, but I don't know how/if I should cut it. I looked for models with curly hair since my hair is naturally curly, but I just can't tell how to tell the people that I want it. I hope I get to cut it and if I do I will share pictures to let everyone know what I decided to do with it.

OOTD: Colorful Fringe

Hello Everyone!
Today was a pretty warm day so I wore a new shirt that my sister bought me last week. It looks as if string was threaded together to make the shirt and looks translucent so I wore a pink spaghetti strap shirt under. I wore my purple vans which I took off right when I got home, but I show my colorful socks which ironically match my shirt. I also got time to do my make-up, but I failed to catch a good quality picture of it. Enjoy the pictures...

I posted that I wanted one of the 3 in 1 animal hats and I ended up buying one and here are my pictures. I love it and all the magic it comes with...

TGIF: Hair & Make-Up

So today I took extra time to do my hair and make-up and I wanted to share two different hairstyles that I came up with...
 I let my hair down (on the picture above) and combed it all to one side then I got bits of hair from the side not shown and twisted it so that I could clip it at the back of my head in order to make a small bump. I have curly hair already so I just added a bit of mousse at the top to add volume.
Then I took of the clip and tied my hair to one side (this hair-do made me feel like a child).
Today I just wore some mascara, and lightly added some purple eye shadow, and finished the look with The Color Workshop lipstick which looks similar to Mac's Lady Gaga- Viva Glam.
