So it only seems appropriate that I tell you all my about my Holy Grail product since that’s just what every beauty obsessed girl does! The Aveeno Nourish + Condition leave-in-conditioner is my hair’s bestie. For real. I spray the product all over my hair as soon as I step out of the shower. It makes me hair feel extra soft and it smells amazing. This product is comparable to It’s a 10 leave-in-conditioner, except it is a lot less expensive! The price ranges from $5-8 depending where you get it. In my area, it’s available in CVS, Shop Rite and Target. I definitely would recommend this to anyone! Love it so much!! Give it a try. Hope you are all having a great week!

Hey cheekies,

So it’s that time again to whip out the knit sweaters and boots because Fall has officially arrived!  I LOVE everything about the fall. It reminds me of good weather, football games, cute clothing and of course, dark nail polish. The only thing I hate about Fall is that it reminds me winter is on it’s way (my least favorite season.) Everything is just dry and depressing during the winter, which is why I must begin to prepare for my extremely dry, pale and sensitive skin that comes along with the cold weather. Ew. Anyway before I start to cry…here are a few of my most reached products for the Fall season! 

St Tropez Bronzing Mousse: This stuff is a miracle! Although I am Spanish, I still get extremely pale in the winter and this is perfect for when I don’t have time to go tanning before a special occasion. I’ve tried many self-tanners before and I love how this one in particular works instantly. The smell is bearable, unlike many others. It also does not give you an orange tone to your skin nor does it leave you with any streaks.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser: Cetaphil is always a brand I can rely on no matter what is going on with my skin. This is my savior in the fall and winter because this is the time my skin starts acting up. What I love about this cleanser is that it leaves your skin clean yet it doesn’t take away any excess moisture or oils, leaving you with balanced, moisturized skin.

Keratin Complex Shampoo & Conditioner: Towards the end of the summer I got a keratin treatment done (which I strongly recommend to any crazy haired chicas out there) and in order to get long lasting results, I’ve been using this shampoo and conditioner to keep the treatment in as long as possible. Though it isn’t my favorite, it’s what I have to use in the meantime. 

Essie’s Sexy Divide & Seche Vite Top Coat: OBSESSED with this color for this season. I think dark nail polish is just an absolute must during the cold weather. I love the purple and blue undertones in the polish and to top it off, I use Seche Vite’s Top Coat to make my polished nails all nice and shiny :)

Hey cheekies!

Welcome to my beauty blog! My name is Melanie and like many other girls, I am in love with all things beauty : ) Seriously though I have a sick obsession with it. I can spend all my hard earned money within ten minutes at Sephora and leave without a penny in my pocket. I can spend hours and hours on Youtube watching tutorials on how to perfect the smokey eye look or researching the next best thing for my crazy curly (more like wavy, crinkly and messy) hair. It’s actually pretty sad how much money and time I spend on beauty products however it makes me happy. Make-up can make anyone feel pretty and that’s what I love so much about it.  So, here is where I will give you my personal opinion and outtakes on all the beauty products I can get my hands on. If you are interested, stay tuned!
