Argan Oil of Morocco

argan oil.jpg

My hair is naturally really dry and using oils really helps to keep my hair soft. To style my hair I usually straighten it because my hair is really curly and hard to manage. After straightening I like to use an oil to keep my hair from being too dry and frizzy. I really wanted an oil that didn’t make my hair look very oily but at the same time kept it straight and soft.

While looking through hair products I found the argan oil of morocco ogx spray. I already use the ogx argan oil of morocco shampoo and conditioner which I really like so I thought I would give it a try! After I finished straightening my hair I sprayed it throughout my hair and spread it out using my hands. It gave my hair a nice shine and instantly made it less frizzy. My hair became even more straight and soft. I also like how the spray isn’t really too oily. On the bottle it says that is a weightless healing dry oil. It really is weightless. It also has a clean smell which isn’t too strong. This is actually my second bottle in this spray! I really liked it so I had to buy it again! 

About a week ago I decided to try the non-spray oil in the same brand. I do like this one more because it is exactly the same as the spray but it seems to be slightly thicker (It is still lightweight even though it is thicker) and makes my hair smoother. I feel like since I do have thick hair it did a better job at getting all my hair unlike the spray. On the bottle it says that it is a penetrating oil for all hair types. It did a good job at smoothing out my dry thick hair and gave it a really nice shine. 

I think I would probably purchase the non-spray oil again because I just thought it worked better with my hair type! It made all of my dry hair really soft yet not too oily. I didn’t even need to use a lot of product. The spray also didn’t make my hair too oily but I felt like I had to do more sprays to get make all my hair soft which resulted in me finishing the bottle quickly. I think I will use the spray for quick touch ups!

They both are not pricey at all! Each one was about $5. They both have a clean smelling scent which I think smells really nice! Since it smells nice it’s perfect for putting it in your hair after you wash your hair or after styling! It’s affordable, smells good, and does the job… It is definitely my favorite hair oil at the moment! Which hair oil do you like to use?!

Thank you so much for reading!

Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick

lip1  I loveee Huda Beauty which is why I really wanted to try some of her products! I decided to order the matte liquid lipstick in the shade “Famous” from Sephora. I always wanted to try out this shade from Huda Beauty and I am so happy I finally did!

This shade is a burgundy/deep red color which I fell in love with when I put it on. The liquid lipstick is a little watery and because of that it feels super light on the lips. It does become matte once it dries but it doesn’t dry out my lips.  Normally when I wear dark lip colors I feel like my lips are very heavy but with this liquid lipstick I felt like I had nothing on! I actually forgot I had a dark red lip on since it felt so lightweight haha. I was also surprised to see that it lasted on my lips for a long time! All of the lipsticks I normally wear don’t last long but this one lasted even after eating soup and mac & cheese. I didn’t even have to reapply once. It also smells amazing! I love it so much that it definitely has become one of my favorites!  

Thank you so much for reading!

P.s.  What is your favorite liquid lipstick at the moment or is there any you think I should try?!

Levi’s Jean Jacket

sunset When it isn’t too cold out but still chilly one of my favorite things I like to wear is a jean jacket. I feel like it is so easy to wear and makes an outfit look so cute. This jean jacket I have on is from Levi’s. I love how the color isn’t too dark or too light. My favorite part is the collar and the inside. It has this soft material on the inside that keeps me warm. It’s the main reason why I love this jacket! Not only do I love how it keeps me warm but also love how it looks! I think it’s super cute! This jacket is sooo comfortable as well. Before I bought this I was wearing a lighter colored jean jacket. It did not have the material this jacket has on the inside and I really wished that it did. I was so happy when I found this jacket at Levi’s. As soon as I saw this jacket I knew I would love it! Immediately after buying it I took off my older and not as warm jean jacket off and wore my cuter Levi’s jacket which kept me warmer! I think I’m going to be wearing this jacket everyday now haha 🙂

Cute & Cozy Jacket

Reston .jpg

Hey everyone! It has been a while since I have done an actual post on my blog but I am glad to be back… and excited! I love this time of the year because not only can you wear cute jackets/sweaters but it also means that there are lights everywhere which is so pretty! I thought it would be nice to take a picture in front of the lights in one of my favorite fluffy jackets. I just love fluffy jackets! Not only are they super cute but also super cozy! I especially love how soft and comfy they are. I got the one I am wearing from Nordstrom a few years ago and love it till this day. I love how it is a simple cream color which I feel like makes it chic and easy to wear. Also I love how it’s so so soft!  It is a bonus that this jacket is super lightweight yet it keeps me really warm! Underneath my jacket I wore a black turtle neck that is from Forever 21 (It is a great basic black shirt which I having been reaching for a lot, having basic items in your closet really helps when putting an outfit together). For pants I decided to go with simple dark blue jeans from Express. I also decided to go simple with my purse since there is already so much going on with the jacket. I just wore a small black purse that is from HM. Last but not least I wore my favorite black boots which are Calvin Klein and from Nordstrom Rack. (Review on the boots coming very soon!)

Thank you so much for reading!

Don’t be afraid…

I am supposed to be writing a paper right now but somehow while looking for sources for my research paper I managed to open up my blog randomly. I haven’t been on here or posted for months. Probably because I have been so busy with university or I don’t know maybe… to be completely honest maybe I just got bored of my blog.

I don’t normally do posts like this on my blog sharing my feelings but it does not really matter… I am having trouble writing my paper since I just have too many thoughts. I can’t seem to be able to focus. I know I don’t have much time left to finish it (247/1,500 words) but I just need somewhere to share how I feel. I never share my feelings with anybody, not that I don’t have anyone it is just I don’t really like to talk. I hate talking about how I feel…but at the same time bottling up my feelings is not going to help. It most definitely makes everything worse.

That is my problem I never speak. It might not seem like a big deal to some people but for me it is different. It is just hard. It is hard to talk. I am scared of it. Why? I have no idea maybe I feel like people will judge me. It is really hard to say what’s on your mind when you are too afraid to open your mouth in the first place and it just leaves you feeling horrible inside.  I feel like I have lost a lot of opportunities in my life just because I was too scared to open my mouth and I am sure I won’t be as successful and happy as I want to be if I don’t make a change. It is really hard to say what’s on your mind when you are too afraid to open your mouth in the first place.  I am just tired of this.

When I turned 20 I wrote a post listing 20 goals I have before turning 21 in January. Looking back at it I realized that I was able to achieve most of those goals. I have not completed each one completely but I am getting there. Seeing that I was able to at least achieve that much gives me hope to keep going. I feel like writing down a goal and having it somewhere where you always look really helps. This is why tonight I am going to make a new goal for myself which I am hopeful that I will 100% achieve. My goal is to not be afraid to talk. It is time I made a change and started to live my life without being afraid. Who cares what anyone thinks. I just have to be myself if I want to be happy. 🙂

If anyone actually read this far thank you for reading my thoughts. Now that my mind is clear I should go back to actually writing my paper for tomorrow!

Cluse Watch

cluse watch

For a couple of weeks now I have been on the hunt for a new watch. Recently I went to Nordstrom and finally found the cutest watch! It has a super cute gold strap and a black screen. Since almost all of my jewelry is gold colored, the gold makes the watch easy to match. The watch is also easy to match with lots of different outfits. A gold watch can bring any outfit together. I feel like this watch would look cute with either a fancy or casual outfit. I love how the black screen really makes the gold stand out! I also really love the style of the gold strap. It makes the watch extra cute and different from other gold watches. I think Cluse watches are super cute in general. So happy to have found this one! Love it!

Lancôme Hypnose Drama Mascara

flower 1

Ever since I started using Lancôme’s mascaras I have been obsessed with them! I have already reviewed the Hypnose Doll Lashes (Click the link here for the post on Hypnose Doll Lashes)  mascara from Lancôme and it is one of my favorites. I decided to try their Hypnose Drama Mascara because I wanted a mascara that would give my lashes more volume. When I tried this mascara I noticed that not only does it have a big brush but that it also has a slight curve to it. The curve really helps to curl my lashes and the big brush helps to give my lashes the volume I was looking for! Just like the Doll lashes Lancôme mascara this one also lasts the entire day and you can easily remove it. I like to remove my mascara with baby shampoo. I do like this mascara more than the Doll lashes one but if you like a natural look then the Doll lashes would be a better option. I am obsessed with the Hypnose drama Mascara at the moment though. I had to buy another one since I loved it so much!

I will be reviewing the new Lancôme mascara called ‘Monsieur Big’ soon. I have been trying a sample one and have been loving it! (I think I might even be liking it more than the Hypnose drama!) I recently purchased the full size so the post will be up very soon on my blog!
