When I started working at DevaCurl a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to be given a bag filled of DevaCurl goodies from my boss, including Melt Into Moisture. I’ve been using DevaCurl for a couple of years now, but haven’t used any products besides their no-poo/conditioner and gel’s as of recently. I typically deep condition my hair every 1-2 weeks, and I’ve used Melt Into Moisture alone twice since I’ve gotten it.Read More
Hey everybody! I was fortunate enough to receive a package filled with Mixed Chicks goodies because I was one of the winners from the Andrea Lewis Mixed Chicks giveaway. I was super excited to receive the package because I used the products when I was younger, but they weren’t an absolute favorite, so I haven’t dabbled with the products since. Over the years I’ve heard increasingly great things about the products/company and was excited to try them.
For those of you who don’t already know, Mixed Chicks is made in the USA, cruelty free, vegan and does NOT engage in animal testing. Their products are also formulated and targeted for people of all nationalities and hair types. Love it! Now let me give you some background on my hair. Although it’s in very good health/condition now, 2016 was a bad year for my 3c curls. It started with damage from a flat iron in January, to then dying my hair blonde in May and then back to black in September. Since last September, I’ve been working really hard to regain my natural curl pattern and the health of my hair.Read More
Venice Beach is one of the most popular places to visit in L.A., and for a very good reason. I know I’ve talked about Venice Beach a little bit in a previous post (you can read it here!), but I’ve been meaning to blog about this area of SoCal for a while now. Venice Beach, hands down, was one of the coolest places I’ve ever been. My boyfriend and I had so much fun here. We came to Venice Beach our last day in California (March 8th, 2017) because it was the warmest day of our trip, and I’m so glad we waited, it was really like we saved the best for last.
When we first got to Venice, we kind of just starting walking up the boardwalk, stopping in shops along the way. Everyone was extremely nice, which I found somewhat surprising. Everything was so unique, eclectic, and artsy. All of the pops of color along the boardwalk radiated good vibes. Something I had immediately noticed while walking along the boardwalk was the smell of “ganja” in the air, and nobody really caring. That was something suuuuper surprising coming from Florida, although I expected it after my trip to San Francisco a few years prior.
