June 21, 2013
tastykake kandy bar kakes

Heyyyy! So, to add to my Influenster review series, I wanted to share something sweet! In my Spring Fever Voxbox, I received a Kandy Bar Kake. Totally new to me but I figured it was worth giving a try instead of allowing someone else to indulge in it. 

According to TastyKake, they are "The Best of Both Worlds! The taste of a candy bar, the freshness of Tastykake! Light and fluffy chocolate enrobed cakes with a delicious créme filling in a unique kandy bar shape. These delicious kakes are made with real Hershey's flavors and will grab you by the taste buds. "

They come in three assorted flavors and I had the pleasure of indulging in the "S'mores" flavored TastyKake.

Straightening Type 4 Natural Hair | Heat Usage with Iron [VIDEO]

June 14, 2013
straightening type 4 natural hair
Yay! I was finally able to share this straightening type 4 natural hair upload and post with you fabulous people! I recently flat-ironed my hair for the very FIRST time since big chopping back in 2011. So for my two-year natural hair anniversary (March 2013), I decided to celebrate by straightening my hair. Don't judge me! I know many people question, "Why go natural just to revert to straightened hair?" ...Well, for the sake of switching up style. 

I've always been the type of person to have so many different hairstyles. You should check out My Natural Hair Journey and My 2011 Hair Growth videos. Blue hair was even in the bunch, lol. You may have noticed my blog's banner, with the green lips and straightened hair. It's a staple now. Don't worry natural hair lovers, I'll have an updated natural hair journey video soon. My hair has grown like wildfire these last two years. Watch the straightening type 4 natural hair video below to find out one of my methods to straightening my natural hair WITHOUT losing my curl pattern. 

Compulsive Polish Lover| Broadway Nails imPRESS Press On Manicure Review

June 9, 2013

broadway nails imPRESS press on manicure

Whew! It's been a while since I shared some nail love on here. So I was given the opportunity to test out and review a set of Broadway Nails Impress Press On Manicure product. Let me first give a disclaimer before digging into my review. I do not have children and throughout my day I'm mostly at my laptop, typing up a storm. The only time water or lotion hits my hands is when I shower and wash my hands. Basically, my day is wear/tear-free from hard labor. 

Now, onto the information you're wanting to know about the Broadway Nails Impress Press On ManicureI haven't worn press on nails in FOREVER. I can remember trying them when I was a kid for the fun of it. Since I didn't know any better then, I thought they were cool up until I got deep into my love for nails and color. Thus, acrylic and Youtube came into my life. 

U by Kotex™ | Sponsored Review

June 7, 2013

Hey lovers, I'm back with an updated review for you! This post may give just some "extra" information about me physically in general BUT, that's okay. I love to be thorough and we're all ladies here reading this post...right? lol. 

u by kotexAnywho, I was selected to be apart of the U by Kotex™ campaign and with that came free samples! I received a box of U by Kotex™ Click compact tampons in "Super" to "Do The Demo". In other words, to try out. Previously, I used the tampon and reviewed them for "early day discharge". It's not to be used for that for an entire day or daily period. You can risk getting an infection by doing so for long periods of time/daily. You can learn more here. I was able to really "Do The Demo" and test out the product while on my cycle. 

Before I get into that, let me give you a little background information on the Kotex™ brand. I've had the pleasure of using them several times for my own feminine hygiene.
