Waterfall Braid for Curly Hair

No, you shouldn’t go chasin’ waterfalls, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put one in your hair! Waterfall braids are so incredibly beautiful on all types of hair, but my favorite is definitely on curly hair. I get asked A LOT about my daughter’s hair when I do it with a waterfall braid, so I decided to make a video with step by step instructions on how to recreate a waterfall braid for curly hair!

Coconut Avocado Face Mask

There is just nothing like having a nice, relaxing evening after a long day. This doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it makes the next few days feel completely different because I am refreshed and energized. One thing I like to do on nights that I get to treat myself is I like to put a facial mask on. They can get a little expensive, but thankfully there are tons of great homemade options that are totally affordable and easy to make. One of my favorites is a coconut avocado face mask. It is packed full of moisture and makes my skin feel great!

Vanilla Rose Salt Scrub Beauty and the Beast Blog Hop

If you don’t use a scrub while you are in the bath or the shower, you are seriously missing out. I am obsessed with scrubs! I use a scrub every single day and I love how soft and smooth it makes my skin feel. I have also loved creating my own scrubs and finding scents that I love together. This vanilla rose scent has quickly become a favorite of mine!

I was three years old when Beauty and the Beast was released when I was 3 years old. As any three year old would be, I quickly became obsessed with the movie. I even sang a song from the movie in a talent show with my best friend in kindergarten! My lifelong love of Beauty and the Beast is why I am so excited for the upcoming release of the new Beauty and the Beast movie! That is why I decided to share this vanilla rose salt scrub with all of you that is inspired by Beauty and the Beast!

Stress Relieving Bath Salts

We all have stress in our lives! It is an unfortunate part of life, but it is something that we all deal with. One thing that helps me when I am starting to feel overwhelmed is taking a nice, hot bath. I have been adding a few different essential oils to my bath. I have found that when I mix lavender and grapefruit essential oil together, it creates just the right stress relieving bath for me. I decided to make stress relieving bath salts that are infused with lavender and grapefruit so that I can have them on hand when I am in need of a stress relieving bath!

Surprising Beauty Upgrade I Made

I am willing to bet that when you think about upgrading your beauty routine, you don’t think about upgrading your deodorant! A deodorant upgrade is just the upgrade I made recently and I am so glad I did! When you are thinking about what beauty upgrade you want to make next, you should think about upgrading your deodorant too.

All Natural Skin Exfoliant for Less Than $1!

I hadn’t ever used skin exfoliant until I was in beauty school. I struggled with clogged pores all through high school and when I found out that all I had to do to make my skin look about 1,000 times better was by exfoliating, I was thrilled! The problem was that the skincare line that was used at my beauty school was quite expensive and I hated spending that much money for an exfoliant. After I started working in a day spa, I learned a trick to creating the perfect skin exfoliant for less than $1!

Valentine’s Date Makeup

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Know Cosmetics. All opinions are 100% mine.

Valentine’s Day is one day each year that I look forward to getting dolled up. Busy moms don’t get the opportunity to get dressed up very often, so I like to really embrace the experience when I have the opportunity. However, getting ready for a date doesn’t need to take as long as it once did when I was in high school or college. Thankfully I have discovered a few products that make doing my makeup easy and it looks a whole lot better than my makeup did in college!
