NYE WITH THE GIRLS

This year I will be spending NYE with the girls! I love being in a relationship but one thing that I sort of neglected was time with the girls.  When you're in a relationship holidays and occasions such as NYE is spent being mushy with the other half, with other couples..which is great *back peddling* but it is always great to switch things up and to never forget about your girls!  This year will be full of fabulousness, sparkly things and girls just being girls!

WITH LOVE


I can't believe it, Christmas is already over and the new year is just around the corner.  Living in the warm Arizona valley it takes a while to get that Holiday feeling since it's so warm here and we surely don't see any snow down in Phoenix.

On Christmas Eve my little sister and I got into the holiday spirit, turned on some Christmas music and baked delicious cookies for the family.

FABULOUS INTERIOR DESIGNER



Cathy Hobbs is one that does her job of Interior design effortlessly. It truly is amazing to see someone doing what they love as a career.  I look up to women like Cathy, too many women feel that if you're not behind a desk for 10 hours, it isn't work.  Take this from someone who was miserable for 3 years doing what was absolutely wrong for me, it is mentally damaging and psychically exhausting.  Since leaving my office job, I now work 10 times harder than I did before but frankly, it doesn't feel like work because I am doing what I love.  Cathy you are a have it all woman, I am still building my empire and I thank you for putting forth what you love in an amazing way and inspiring younger women like me to continue to strive for more, embracing our natural attributes to have it all.


Looking in on Cathy Hobbs' interior design expertise, I'm going to have to play more with faux fur and mixing textures.  I loved her use of texture within the throw pillows on the bed (you guys know how much I love throw pillows)!  I'm also taking her advice on using more mirrors to open the space up.  In 2015 I will be moving into my new home and I will be taking you guys along with me for the whole journey of designing my new living space.

With its stylish looks and premium interior, the Nissan Altima is just as much as an individual as you are. Not fitting into one mold is what makes the Nissan Altima not only unique, but very exciting!

SheaMoisture 10-IN-1 RENEWAL SYSTEM



Since cutting my hair, the whole washing and styling process has been a breeze.  Today I used the SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-IN-1 Renewal System for the first time and it was a totally blissful experience, from the amazingly natural fragrance that illuminated as soon as I opened the bottle of shampoo to the gentle lather that formed on my scalp.  I appreciate and applaud SheaMoisture for their ability to create a flawless system, where each product does a superb job and provides exactly what it says it would.  I was rather excited to try it out as this was my first time using a line of products with Marula oil.

Made with certified organic shea butter and other natural ingredients, this powerful system provides anti-aging benefits, heat and color protection, hydration, nourishment, rejuvenation, shine and so much more! When used together, the four products (a shampoo, conditioner, masque, and hair & scalp serum) help to perfect and renew vibrancy due to dull, lackluster hair.

The superfruit blend of red raspberry, ketones, goji, acai, and guava extracts will leave your hair feeling soft and smelling delicious! Learn more by visiting sheamoisture.com.

Pre-wash
Hair and Scalp Serum
Shaking well before opening this serum, I applied it directly onto my scalp and worked it all the way  through to my ends (this was so quick and easy without the extra length to my hair).

A few attributes
  • Revitalizes damaged hair 
  • Protects against heat styling
  • Leaves hair soft, smooth and more manageable
Shampoo
I had quite a bit of build up on my scalp from last week's festivities, which required me to lather up, massage in, rinse and lather again (using only about a pea size amount of product)

A few attributes
  • Sulfate Free
  • Improves manageability without creating buildup
  • Nourishes and hydrates hair wile providing anti-aging and color protecting benefits
  • Helps perfect and renew vibrancy to brittle hair
Conditioner
I applied the conditioner and placed a plastic cap over my hair.  I let the conditioner marinate for about 5 minutes, using my fingers I gently removed shed hair and then rinsed.

A few attributes
  • Detangles hair while rejuvenating, leaving hair soft and manageable
  • Provides anti-aging and color protection benefits
  • Hydrates, nourishes and strengthens

* This is my hair after rinsing all of the product out, I had not added any additional product and look how lustrous my coils are-- might I add, my hair was soft and smelled amazing!

I have not gotten down to using the Hair Masque but I plan on using it next week. Be sure to keep up with me on all of my social media platforms so that you don't miss a beat!

MINIMALIST JOURNEY


The feeling of minimizing your things is very much so like the feeling you get when you begin gardening.  Placing that seed in the ground knowing that it is going to turn into something great.  Going outside in the morning to water and see the progress.

My life began to change on earth day of 2014. . . On my journey to a minimalistic lifestyle :)

#BROSIAEATS: BAYOU SHRIMP


This bayou shrimp recipe was absolutely delicious.  Although the image in the recipe was a bit more of a brownish hue than the outcome of my own,  my taste buds still jumped for joy.
