Product Rave: Joico Daily Care Leave-In Detangler


I used to swear by Wella's leave in conditioner- but ever since my beauty supply store stopped selling it I had to find an alternative. Lately I've been hearing good things about Joico so I figured I'd give it a try....

Introducing Joico's Daily Care Leave-In Detangler.

I'm pretty sure it's the best detangler/leave in conditioner I've ever used. It makes brushing through my curly mess after a shower a breeze. It's also a thermal protectant- so if I decide to make my hair straight I'm covered too!

Kohl's Summer Outfit


Oh Kohl's- you've done it again. Sucked me in with your irresistible sales. Luckily I got a cute outfit out of it.

Paisley Peasant Blouse (much more vibrant in person, also it comes with a matching camisole- I plan to cut mine out and wear a white camisole underneath) via

Denim Boyfriend Shorts- It's so hard for me to find shorts that fit just right and aren't too short. These guys are a perfect fit. via

Bead Hoop Drop Earrings- These earrings were too cute to pass up. They would look perfect with this outfit & my messy curly hair in a bun. via

I also picked up a white camisole to wear underneath the peasant blouse and my total only came to $42.72 (after I used my Kohl's card to get 20% off and factored in the $10 Kohl's bucks I can spend tomorrow). Seriously- if you have a Kohl's near you it almost pays to have their credit card.

Anyways, could you see yourself wearing this outfit this summer?! I know I will be!

UK Swap with Sophie Is Made Up


So I'm kinda 2 months late on this blogpost BUT its finally here! While on twitter I noticed that Sophie tweeted that she wanted to do a swap with someone from the US. I was quick to respond because I definitely had a mini list of things I wanted from the UK. We sent each other lists and Sophie had a little more wiggle room with what she could get me (I couldn't think of enough stuff!!) so a lot of what she bought me was a complete surprise-but luckily this girl knows make up!

Here is a picture of everything out of the box.

Since there is so much I figured I'd highlight my favorites so far...

Bea-utiful Colors. All very light and shimmery.
17 Vintage Love- Perfect Pastels

Kinda clumpy, but the color will bring immediate attention to your eyes.
Collection 2000 Extreme Coloured Lengthening Mascara #4 Teal

In love with this liquid eyeliner. I don't know if its the brush or what- but it definitely beats my L'OREAL liquid eyeliner.
Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eyeliner

This blush screams way too bright - but (with a light hand) it honestly is so pretty on the cheeks.
Blusher By BarryM 2 or 102?

From left to right...
BarryM Lipgloss- 18 Toffee (smells & tastes like toffee for REAL. aanndd its a nice beige color on the lips)
Natural Collection Juicy Lips- Fondant (milky pink/coral)
Boots 17 Mirror Shine Lipstick- Peace (this color looks intense but it is very sheer and perfect for summer)
BarryM Lipgloss- 12 (not sure of the name- but it smells like candy- milky baby pink)
BarryM Lipstick- 129 (lavender awesomeness)

Overall this swap was a success! I'm really happy with what Sophie picked out and I'm glad to have these additions to my makeup collection. She also picked me up 2 Sleek palettes- but I'm sure you've already seen plenty of pictures of them!
WARNING--if you do a swap with someone from the UK--shipping costs are highhhh! I paid $52 to ship my 5 pound box to Sophie (I know, I know, what the heck made it 5 pounds?!) Oh, and Royal Mail likes to take its time.

Be sure to check out Sophie's blog- its awesome. Trust me!
