6 Weeks of Schwarzkopf: Biotin Hair Spray

Hairspray is not a product I typically buy. In fact, I can't really remember the last time I've owned any — or at least not your typical hairspray. I usually buy moisturizing sprays with water as the first ingredient and a variety of oils and other goodies that give my hair some extra bounce and hydrate it. So when I [...]

6 Weeks of Schwarzkopf: Wax Powder

I've been using Schwazkopf's hair products for three weeks now courtesy of Walmart, and I admit that I was a bit worried this week. Using the shampoo and conditioner, and the curl defining cream were pretty straightforward, but I wasn't sure what to make of the next product: Styliste Ultime Wax Powder. My first thought was "Why the heck would [...]

Last week, I shared with you that I'll be using Schwarzkopf hair products for 6 weeks, courtesy of Walmart, and sharing my results. Last week, I used the shampoo and conditioner. This week, I'm trying a product I was surprised to find in their lineup: a curl defining cream. Washing and conditioning my hair is just the start of my [...]

Outfit: It’s Maxi Dress Season!

I'm Wearing: Faded Glory belted maxi dress, $12.94 | Faded Glory sweater shrug, $12.94 I admit it. Winter puts me into a lull that makes me lazy and less likely to get up and get dressed up for photos. This is especially true because I work from home, and therefore do not have to get up and get dressed. Which [...]

6 Weeks of Schwarzkopf: Shampoo & Conditioner

Over the last 5 or 6 years, I've become very particular about my hair. This shift happened when I decided to start wearing my naturally curly texture, because the change necessitated a new hair care regimen that took my texture into account. Over the years, I've found products that work well, and I've stuck with them. So when Walmart offered [...]

Review: Huggies Snug & Dry Ultra Diapers

Over the last several months, I've tried a lot of diaper brands. A LOT. And my initial instinct is that they would all work equally well. They'd catch what they were supposed to catch and that would be the end of it. Well, that's somewhat true, but I've found that some brands definitely work better than others — and Huggies is [...]

Better Skin with Burt’s Bees Renewal Products

One of the compliments I've gotten most often over the years is that I have great skin. But what those folks don't know is that my secret is...wait for it... Nothing! That's right. I am notoriously lazy with my skin care regimen. And I get away with being lazy because of good genes. Aside from the cursory wash while I'm [...]

Shea Moisture Baby Products are Our Faves

Remember how I recently said that I tend to be very brand loyal when it comes to the products I support? Well, if there's one brand that could be a case study for that, it would be Shea Moisture. For years, they have been my family's go-to products for our hair and skin, because we can trust them to be [...]

Shopping for Baby, Part 2

A few weeks ago, I shared that I was trying to break out of my habit of buying the same products over and over again by trying a few new baby products, courtesy of Walmart. There is beauty in being able to go to one store and get pretty much everything I need for baby Juliza, but I never know [...]
