I can’t believe that it is already Wednesday.  Although, I’m totally fine with that.  I need the weekend to recharge!  It felt like last weekend flew by and I didn’t really get a chance to rest.  That will not be the case this weekend – I will be living in my comfies (that’s what I call my jammies) for a full two days!!!  I won’t have to worry about achieving this goal either, the boyfriend will be too busy watching The Masters.  All. Weekend. Long.

What I have really loved about creating my blog is the freedom to do whatever the hell I want to do.  That is a real stretch from my Monday through Friday, eight to five routine.  Don’t even get me started on that.  I think that is why I love blogging so much, I can finally let my creative side out.  It has been so nice to try things out and if it doesn’t work – no worries, I’ll just try something new next time.

Today, I am going to start a new category for a series of blog posts.  The Powder Room.  This is where we are going to talk all things beauty, Bombshells.  I am no makeup artist or hair stylist.  I have never had any training in the fields whatsoever, but one thing is for sure I am damn good at achieving my own Bombshell look.  I have quite a few years under my belt working on it.  I, and possibly you, can thank the 1990s Pam Anderson for inspiring my inner Bombshell over the years.  Seriously, best import from Canada, well, her and Tim Hortons.

As most of you witnessed via the gram this past weekend, I did a little shopping at Ulta.  It really is a slice of heaven on earth.  I went there for one item that I needed to buy.  One.  I walked out with a huge bag full of things that I “needed”.  That is what really motivated me to create a new series of posts.  I try a lot of beauty and makeup products out all the time and want to share my honest opinions with all of you!!  So, let’s talk about two new products that I am currently using on these blonde tresses.


The first product that I am currently swooning over is by Maui Moisture.  I am using their Nourish & Moisture + Coconut Milk Shampoo.  I absolutely love this shampoo!!  My hair has normal everyday and every month stresses that I put it through.  You know the blow drying, the curling, the straightening, the bleaching – if I were my hair I would hate me.  How I picked up this product was totally random.  I thought the bottle was cute.  Yes, that is how I buy things 9 times out of 10.  I also took a look at it because it was formulated for dry hair.  I quickly found out that I absolutely love this shampoo.  I use it as my daily shampoo and I do wash my hair every day.  I have noticed that my hair feels softer and definitely looks smoother even right after blow drying.  Sometimes you find moisturizing shampoo will weigh down your hair – not the case with this product.  I also love the smell of this shampoo.  It makes me feel like I am on a tropical island all day.  Maui Moisture is also wallet friendly too, you can find this at Ulta for $8.99!!! The brand has six shampoo formulas, check out their website to find the best match for your hair type.  They also offer conditioning, styling, and treatment products.  I will be checking those out soon!!

Final Rating: 5 out of 5 hair flips 💁🏼


The second product that I want to share with all of you Bombshells is: The Sheriff – Firm Hold Hairspray from Drybar ($27).  I’m going to stop for a second and just say that the people over at Drybar are complete geniuses.  Fabulous idea and the product names to support their brand are just marvelous.  This hairspray is also marvelous.  I have tried so many brands of hairspray over the years.  Most of the time I end up disappointed and just use the damn can until it is gone then move onto the next brand.  This is how I ended up trying this product this past week.  I have truly loved all of the products I have purchased from Drybar, so I figured that it was time to give their hairspray a whirl.  I am so glad I did.  Now, I admit that I have only been using this product for a few days, but I feel that my search for the perfect hairspray has finally come to an end.  You will love how this product feels in your hair.  It has the perfect amount of hold, but does not feel stiff or sticky.  My hair stays put and looks great all day long.

Final Rating: 4 out of 5 hair flips 💁🏼(will probably change to 5, but this is a new relationship)

That is all for this session of The Powder Room.  Bombshells, make sure to follow my blog and Instagram to keep up to date on my new posts.  You never know what I’ll be talking about next!

xoxo,
