My New Hair Mists

Have any of you used hair mist before? I used to spritz my hair with my regular perfume, but I don’t know if it’s because of my age, my hair has been so dry. I’ve also noticed a lot of greys coming in *scream face*. So, I’ve stopped spraying my hair because of the alcohol in the perfume, I don’t need to be drying it out any more than it already is. Enter my new obsession….

For Christmas I got a bunch of gift cards including those for Sephora and Bloomingdales. I would usually purchase perfumes with the gift cards to cut the price coming out of my pocket, but I already gifted myself 3 new perfumes for Christmas. In the end I ended up buying the hair mists to go with my perfumes. I’m loving them!

This is how I usually wear my hair at school. For those who don’t know, I work at a high school in the SPED department, so I like to have my hair up in a messy bun almost everyday. When I get into my car after school and take my hair down…. it smells soooo good! Like I just applied my perfume. How I apply it to my hair is by spritzing between layers before putting it up. It seems to lock the scent in until I take down my hair.

I also like that it works well as a body mist too. Sometimes I’ll take a shower a little early in the evening and will give my body a mist. It’s a lighter version of the perfume with less alcohol. Perfect for after a shower. I may start buying the hair mist over the actual perfumes. They’re way cheaper than the perfume and come in bottles better for traveling with.

Give a hair mist a try and let me know your experience! I’m always looking for suggestions on new scents to try, so please let me know what some of your favorites are.

A new business venture…

For so many years I’ve had friends and co-workers try to get me to jump in on businesses like Amway, Mary-Kay, Avon… and I was never interested. The thought of ordering products for someone and then having to deliver it to them never sounded fun to me. It actually sounded like too much work. I vowed to myself that there was no way I would fall into something like no matter how much someone built it up to me, it just didn’t sound fun at all.

I’m super excited to start using this product

My cousin got into Rodan & Fields, I want to say a couple of years ago, and tried to get me to join. I refused for so long, and one day during quarantine she asked me if I wanted to join at that time because she was still making a lot of money even though we all were at home. I said I’d think about it. She sent me the link that evening inviting to a zoom meeting where I could hear some of the stories from those who are selling the products and how they’re making out during quarantine. I could not believe when my cousin shared with everyone that the money she makes from selling this product practically paid for her daughters PUNAHOU tuition. That’s an expensive school… you may have heard of it… Barack Obama?! When I heard that, along with stories of those who actually were able quit their job because they were bringing home more money selling these products and how all the payments and shipments would be taken care of through the company!!!… I was interested.

I guess my cousin felt she had to announce my arrival on board… no pressure at all 😉

So I did it! I bought my business kit and set up my account. I’m going to be real with you all and say that I’ve only tried a few of these products. I also want to say that I will be totally honest in my posts about each product. There have been so many times that I’ve gone on a website and read about a product and bought it only to find it’s crap. I know that every beauty brand will have their good products and not-so-good products. I’m on a mission to find the products that work best for me and my family.

Just to gain your trust a little… I actually worked as a esthetician for about 10 years before having my oldest daughter. Some brands that I’ve worked with, that I hold pretty high up there are… Yon Ka, Aveda and Dermalogica. Working at some popular spas like Abhasa Spa at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel and Serenity Spa at the Outrigger Reef, both in Waikiki, I’ve had to attend MANY skin care classes. So yes, skin care has always been really important to me. Because the R&F products are pretty pricey, I want to make sure that I can promote the products that I feel are really worth dishing out your hard earned money for. So please if you are interested in checking out my site for now please click here.

L’occitane Arlesienne

t1003tatin-loccitane_feat3_1
My co-worker introduced me to this scent last week and since then I’ve been wanting to purchase it.  Well yesterday I finally went down to purchase it only to find that on me it’s very different than it is on her. I ended up not purchasing it and instead purchasing this La Collection de Grasse mini set. P.aspxEach of these smelled so nice when I first put them on different points of my skin- but faded to a very powdery scent (which I don’t like).  In the end I found myself getting a headache, so I’ll be returning them.  However, the Arlesienne faded to a very pretty scent that I loved.  Funny how that worked out huh?  So what I originally went to purchase I will be going back to get and returning the other.  This is some good advice when it comes to fragrances- try it on your skin and wear it for a while and see how you like it before purchasing it.

Weekend Pics

Not too much happened this weekend. On Friday night we went to Maui’s football game and that was pretty much the highlight of the whole weekend- the rest of the weekend was spent vegging at home in front of the T.V. A nice relaxing weekend is exactly what we needed 🙂 Here are some pics from the weekend.

Spa Date With My Daughter

I love hanging out with my daughter. The two of us can spend an entire day with each other without a dull moment. On Sunday we went shopping at the mall and decided that it would be fun to get pedicures at this beautiful nail spa called L’mour. It’s such a pretty place and they have so many different pedicures to choose from.  Téa got the Bubble-Licious pedi- it came with a fizzy bubble-gum soak and a sugar massage.  I got the Pomegranate Berry Pedi- crushed pomegranate and blueberry scrub and a pomegranate smoothie creme wrap.  Everything smells soooo delicious in there. photo 2BeFunky_nails1.jpg photo 1 photo 4 photo 3 photophoto 5

Like Mother Like Daughter

Over the weekend I shared with my 6 year old daughter that I’d be getting my nails done.  She begged me to let her get fake nails too.  She was so cute about it that I took her to Claire’s Accessories store to by some press on nails.  She chose Marylin Monroe nails, I tried to talk her into Audrey Hepburn (my favorite), but she really wanted Marylin.  Of course she ended up ripping them all off after about a half hour, and then wanting me to reapply them the next day.  I love having a daughter, I know we will be best friends forever 🙂  Just look at how beautiful her fingers are.  They look like the hands of a woman, they are so much prettier than mine.  #Jealous
