L’Oreal Paris Color Vibrancy Intensive

Hi everyone!!!!! Happy heart month and the month the holds two wonderful days close to my heart….I was talking about National Pizza and Bagel Day duh! Haha anyways being that this is the unofficial official month of everything pink, red and love I wanted to share one of my newest loves with you all! I recently highlighted my hair during my break from nursing school and naturally I needed to find products for my hair that helped restore it to its original lustrous form. Let me just tell you this line from L’Oreal is my current hair obsession you guys. My friends over at Influenster so kindly sent this my way and it couldn’t have come at a better time 1. I had just run out of my current shampoo and conditioner and 2. I just colored my hair! This first thing I noticed when I used the shampoo and conditioner was how AMAZING it smells, truly just like I was getting a wash in the salon. I know its kind of odd to some but when a shampoo or hair products smell luxurious I just fall in love with them. However, not only do these products smell wonderful but they left my hair so incredibly silky and hydrated I almost couldn’t believe it. The masterminds over at L’Oreal developed this Color Vibrancy Intensive line that seals in your color for 60 days and helps to repair the damage to restore your hair to its pre-colored state. I found myself obsessively touching my hair in class that everyone thought I was nervous haha, I just couldn’t get over how soft it was.

Now the hair mask is something entirely of its own my friends. It smells just as heavenly as the other products but it is so thick and creamy that it almost feels like custard in the jar. A little of this goes a very long way for me, mostly because I put it only in the ends of my hair so it doesn’t get too greasy. I have very fine hair so a lot of product in it will kind of overwhelm it. You leave it in for about 5 minutes and it will feel as if you are brand new silky hair fast then it takes you to style it.

After using it for about a month now I will say that the L’Oreal team has really knocked it out of the park with this line and I may or may not have already stalked up on several bottles of it. I mean you never know when Target will run out of your latest obsession or there is a shampoo shortage… stranger things have happened! Thank You all so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed!

XOXO Val

February Julep Maven

DSC_1173Doing my nails has to be one of my favorite things to do. Wether I am treating myself and getting them done or enjoying a night in with a new color and Sex and the City reruns I just enjoy the me time.  Thankfully each month thanks to my Julep Maven boxes I get to try some new colors every month and they never disappoint. Since February is the month of love this months box featured a line of Dramatic colors that really speak to the emotions. Since I get the Classic with a Twist box I got the colors Greta, a striking  shimmery berry lacquer that gives just enough pop of sparkle to any manicure. Then there is Octavia a sultry indigo that will make any nail polish fanatic drool. And because little gifts of love are featured this month Julep gifted mavens with a beautiful glittery glam polish in a perfectly pink color with gold glitter specks and when it hits the sunlight it looks like a pink aurora borealis! Its truly magical and I am completely in love with it.

With all Julep Maven Boxes they send a full sized beauty product and this month was their featured Julep Eye Sheen shadows. This cream based eye shadow go on smoothly and dry with a beautiful and dramatic eye color. It takes the hassle out of applying powered shadows and little speckles of the shadow falling all over your makeup.  In a nut shall its simply amazing!!
