My Head Itches!

Shea Moisture African Black Soap Hair Masque

Of all the minor issues and annoyances I have, I would say that my scalp problems are the most irritating. I’ve struggled with a scaly, itchy scalp since childhood. I remembered being scared because my head would itch all the time; I always feared I had head lice. When head check days would happen at school, I would squeeze my eyes shut …

Memebox: Superbox #26 Snail 2

memebox: superbox #26 snail 2

I remember the first time I saw a snail product on Memebox’s site. My first thoughts were something along the lines of, “Ewwww! That’s disgusting! I’m not putting that on my face!!” I had no idea how snails were incorporated into beauty products. Did they grind them up and put them in facial cleanser? Would I find juicy bits of …

NYX Cosmetics Haul

For the 4th of July, NYX Cosmetics offered all of their products at 40% off. I was more than happy to take advantage of this deal. Ulta had a similar NYX sale during the week of Independence Day, but palettes were excluded from that sale. This was really the only reason I decided to order from the NYX website. Both were …

Anticipating Autumn

This is nothing more than a gratuitous photo posting. As much as I like summer, I love the fall. There’s something about that ease into cooler weather. I love warm sweaters, boots, and watching the leaves change. I always like to take some sort of trip when the leaves are changing to take pictures. Photography is one of my favorite …

The Lust List: Coastal Scents

Coastal Scents - Lust List

Coastal Scents is one of my favorite cosmetics companies, though I feel like their products are probably not on a lot of people’s radar. The feature budget-friendly items, with quality that is comparable to much more expensive brands. I have loved all of the products I’ve purchased from this company so far, and there are still quite a few products …

New York Color (NYC) Haul


Last week at Rite-Aid, NYC was on sale and there were coupons on the display in the store. This led to some very cheap items, so I couldn’t pass it up. It’s certainly not an expensive brand, even when paying full retail price. NYC isn’t a drugstore brand that I tend to make purchases from, other than nail polish, so …
