November Sahshe Box

Posted by Starlett Approved at 12:30 PM 0 comments
Hey Babes!!  Sorry for the late post I was suffering from a Thanksgiving food coma lol.  I hope all my American followers had a beautiful Thanksgiving, I sure did (she said staring at her gut).
Todays' post is the first of a monthly series I'd like to start doing.  I'll be going through and  sort of reviewing the contents of my monthly beauty box from Sahshe.
Sahshe was founded by best friends Carron White and Ruth Fombrun, targeted for women of color.  It's $12 a month and I love it.  On its site they describe it as getting a birthday gift from your best girlfriend every month and IT IS!  I get so excited when my mailman hands it to me and I love their packaging, so cute!
Once a month my product junkie monster is appeased with sample items ranging from candles to curling creams.  This month was all about battling the cold and keeping your body and hair moisturized.  So let's see what I got.

The first thing I used was the Sienna Naturals Baobab Oil Moisturizing Hair and Body Shampoo, and I like it.  It has a light pretty rose water scent and it left my skin feeling soft and clean. 

Keeping with the soft and sexy skin theme the box also included the Sienna Naturals Baobab Oil Moisturizing Cream.  OMG this stuff, my skin just soaked it all in.  It left my skin soft and glowing, favorite combination ;-)

The next item was the Kiss My Face 4 in 1 moisture shave.  It was okay, I didn't think it was any more moisturizing than my usual shaving cream.  I do think it's perfect for sensitive skin and shaving those sensitive areas.

Last but not least was by far the thing I was MOST excited to try, Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Invigorating Conditioner.  I've seen a few hair girls mention the Conditioner on YouTube and was looking forward to trying it.  I used it to co-wash my wash n'go and I loved it.  Lots of slip for easy detangling and the minty tingle during the scalp massage, so refreshing.  It's definitely on the list of hair product favs.

Each month there's a bonus item.  For November it was a cute orange makeup bag, that I'm using to hold the makeup I plan to use that day/night.  Makes my life so much easier having to bring all that makeup to the bathroom.
I hope you enjoyed this post.  I'm looking forward to doing more.  Can't wait to get my December box :-D If you're interested in subscribing to Sahshe here is the link!

My Hair Journey

Posted by Starlett Approved at 10:23 AM 0 comments
Hey loves! I hope you all had a good week.  I actually had a little me time, a mommy time out.  I saw a really good movie, The Best Man Holiday.  Did any of you see it?  I loved it, it will definitely become a holiday time staple right next to Love Actually :-) I can't believe the holidays are here, Thanksgiving is next week!! Where did the year go?  Anywoot, it's Friday and as you noticed by the title it's not a nail post...It's about my hair!

I mentioned to you last week that during my hiatus one of the things I spent my time focused on was my hair and getting it healthy.  To share my journey thus far with all of you I put together a little hair journey video.  I'm excited about it because I LOVE watching these types of videos, it kept me so motivated to put the work in for healthy hair.

I hope you enjoyed the video.  I mentioned in the video I watched YouTube videos that inspired me on my journey and I will link those ladies below.  I definitely plan on doing more hair posts, such as favorite products and my hair routine.
Thanks for Stopping By!

Hey There Loves!!

Posted by Starlett Approved at 12:59 PM 0 comments
Hey there loves, it's been a long a#$ time.  Damn, that was some blogging break lol, but definitely needed.  During that time I focused on fitness, my healthy hair journey, skincare and of course my family :-) I've been missing this and all of you <3.  So starting today I will try to have at least one post for you a week,  every Friday.  Oh wait, it is Friday...let's get down to the good stuff.  I got some nail art for ya!
Today I have for you a sort of gothic cross pattern mani.  It's such a simple design but I love it so much.  I'm also LOVING the texture polish trend.  It's a really cool accent to any mani.  As a naturalista, we're not friends lol.  Finger detangling SUCKS with texture polish.  I have to take it off on wash days. 

Polishes Used:
Sinful Colors Go Go Girl
Revlon Black Magic
Sinful Colors This Is It
Sephora by OPI I Found A Pot Of Gold
Sally Hansen Lick-O-Rich

I'm really excited to be back!!  Look out for more nails, beauty and even hair posts ;-)
See Ya Soon

Thanks For Stopping By
