Review: Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner by Hask

October 8, 2015
Hask Argan Oil review shampoo conditioner

I’m really, really lucky when it comes to hair. Like incredibly lucky. I might gain weight easily and I might have flat feet, but my hair never lets me down. It’s hard for me to find a shampoo or conditioner that I don’t like. When Hask kindly sent over their Argan Oil Shampoo, Conditioner, Oil, and Deep Conditioning Mask I was a little skeptical about how it could possibly improve what I’ve got going on. I’m happy to say that this hair care system impressed me very much.

I don’t explore the city much. I’m obsessed with exploring outside the city lately. I’m pretty jaded by the actual city: the cost of everything, the craziness trying to get somewhere, and the experience as a whole is not something I appreciate anymore. I’d rather be upstate or in an outer borough supporting a small business. But every once in a while I’ll explore some new places. This past weekend I had dinner with one of my favorite people, followed by drinks and treats and roaming around the Upper West Side. Continue Reading…

instrumental beauty home spa treatment

It’s funny – when I first started this blog I was all about makeup. My how times have changed! My need for reasonably priced products has not gone anyway at all, but my love for skin care and understanding for its importance has increased. Both of these things have led me to this bad boy right here: a complete home spa treatment for body, face, and feet. Continue Reading…

Desktop Wallpaper Favorites Part 3

October 5, 2015
Free Fall Desktops 2015

I literally do not understand where September went. I just realized that all of a sudden it’s October and things just got serious. I still have yet to get all my heavy sweaters out of space bags, but our feather/down duvet just went into our duvet cover this weekend and our bedroom window is no longer open 24/7. We’re going to try to go apple picking very soon and I am going to do my best to not fail at pumpkin carving this year (no promises, though). 

I’m still working my butt off at work, plus I’m revamping (coming so soon!) , amping up my blogging by writing more than ever before, hiring some much-needed assistance (more on that later), and still hustling hard to get my clients amazing work that matches their brands. I am so happy to be doing what I do and to be helping who I help. The weather definitely inspires me to keep things going, and a desktop wallpaper refresh doesn’t hurt either. I’m working hard to reap the harvest!

I hope that joke didn’t Fall flat… Continue Reading…

Weekly Wrap Up no. 2

Excuse me October, but HOW DARE YOU. I was just getting used to the idea of Summer being over and all of a sudden it is 53 degrees outside? Not. Cool.  I can’t believe how quickly time flies… so I’m trying to buckle down and get my projects in order. There’s something about working full time, freelancing part time, planning a wedding, and trying to lose weight all at the same time that makes me feel a little frazzled. I mapped out the next six months of my professional future with a simple FREE list. Here’s what else I’ve been up to this past week… Continue Reading…
