Big Hair Waves with the HerStyler Wand

  I’m teamed up with HerStyler for this post and I’m introducing their 3 part curler styling wand. A styling wand has been on my wishlist for awhile. I had one a few years back but I didn’t use and I eventually sold it on PoshMark. If you don’t know what PoshMark is hop on over and check out my post about my favorite resale sites (here). I don’t know why I didn’t use the wand but it was probably because I didn’t know how. Well, times have changed and I really wanted a wand. My hair is the longest…

Dry Shampoo by HASK Hair

How cute is that bag and little poem? So cute. I’m teamed with HASK Hair for this post and I’m introducing their new line of dry shampoos. I’ve teamed with HASK before on a few really great hair products and I knew this product would be great as well (posts here and here). Most of the time I’m a wash my hair every day kind of girl. My hair is super oily. I envy women who can go more than a day without a shampoo. There are times that I wash my hair at night and the next morning my…

Vibrastrait Flat Iron and Cloud 9 Styling Products

One thing I’ve discovered over the years is all hair styling tools are not equal. There is truly a difference between quality levels when it comes to hair tools. In my opinion, you get what you pay for. Especially in the world of flat irons. Over the years I’ve tried a ton of flat irons and they have been a mix of great, good, so-so, bad, and absolutely terrible. Some took forever to heat up, didn’t heat up enough, or felt like they got stuck to my hair. Let me tell you, that is the worst feeling ever. I don’t…

Summer Loving

So you know I’ve been on this huge “I don’t want to be only surface deep” kick lately. Which isn’t really a kick, real is a lifestyle folks. All of that was meant to be sorta funny. Seriously though, I feel so much better emotionally for saying something so simple as – I’m going to be me on my blog. I don’t want to be superficial, share only the good, and I don’t want to be fake. I just want to be myself – Regina. My last few posts have been fun to write and fun to post because I…

It’s All in the Details

Even though I’m adding color to my wardrobe these days I still love (and I mean LOVE) a solid color outfit. My favorite being, an all black outfit. I feel like I can take over the world when I’m wearing an outfit I feel great in. Doesn’t everyone? Give me a great outfit and I’m ready to conquer the day. I love an all black look because I feel sleek, polished, sexy, and confident all at once. I try not use language on my blog but I would go ahead and insert bad a** in that list as well. Simple…

HydroPeptide Nimni Cream

  I’ve been talking serious skincare on the blog for quite some time now. I’ve also had the opportunity to try some great products that have really changed the way I care for my skin. I recently tried Nimni Cream c/o of HydroPeptide. This little jar packs some powerful claims. Nimni Cream contains an amino acid patented technology designed to improve the appearance of the skin’s tone and texture. The creme works to boost and optimize collagen production. Collagen production rejuvenates skin to lessen the look of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the appearance of fullness and elasticity. Nimni…

Pocket Tee Dresses and OTK Boots

It has been absolutely gorgeous outside for the past few days. Bright blue skies and perfect temps have me loving being outdoors. I’ve been been craving easy outfits on these gorgeous days. Specifically, dresses that are easy to wear. One thing I love almost as much as my OTK boots are lightweight and easy dresses. Dresses that can be worn basically any way you chose. If you want to get dressed up – add some boots or heels. If you want to dress down – throw on sneakers or sandals. Yeah, those kind of dresses. Light summer dresses and sneakers…

Exuviance Microdermabrasion Face Polish

Microdermabrasion, this is a new topic for me on the blog. I’ve collaborated with Exuviance before on a couple different face products and I’m excited to collaborate again on a new product. Exuviance recently sent me the Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish to try out. This face polish is their latest anti-aging product. It works through a triple action approach to skin renewal with a unique blend of physical, chemical and enzymes exfoliates. These ingredients work to deliver instant skin resurfacing benefits. Now, I’m not going to lie. Microdermabrasion scares me a bit. A year or so ago I was really…

Jan Marini Hyla3D HA Activating Complex

   You probably know by now I’m really focused on improving my skincare routine. From my previous posts, you may remember I learned about hyaluronic acid through my skin care esthetician. I’ve been getting professional facials done over the last several months and I love it! She always uses a hyaluronic acid containing product on my face. The results have been awesome so I’ve incorporated a few hyaluronic acid products into my home skincare routine. After using products with this ingredient my face looks visibly hydrated and refreshed. My makeup applies smother and my makeup free natural skin glows afterward.…

Rodial Lux Makeup and Skincare

Hello Weekend! I’ve been super motivated this week and my to-do list is almost complete. There is such enjoyment in a complete task list. Ah, beautiful. My to-do list today is super easy, write and create. This is such a fun post for me because it is in collaboration with one of my favorite beauty brands. I’ve partnered with Rodial three times and each collaboration has left me with products that have been game changers in my beauty routine (previous posts here and here). For this collaboration, I received c/o of Rodial, The Smokey Eye Brush, Nude Eyeshadow Palette, Snake…

A few months back I posted about the HASK Greek Yogurt Shampoo set. You can check out that post here. HASK has some great products to chose from and they’ve launched an exotic oils line of shampoos and conditioners. Each set is formulated for a specific hair concern. I enjoyed using the previous products and I’m excited to try the new Blue Chamomile & Argan Oil collection c/o of HASK. Blue Chamomile & Argan Oil Collection The Blue Chamomile & Argan Oil collection is formulated with blue chamomile & argan oil. The blue chamomile nourishes and the blue violet hue…

Ordering Glasses Online Made Easy with Coastal

This post is sponsored by Coastal and they’re changing the way you order eyeglasses. In fourth grade, my mom took me to the eye doctor and I picked out my first pair of giant glasses. The best part of it all – I could see clearly! I had no idea I needed glasses until I could finally see clearly. I wish I could rewind time and see my little kid face light up! Flash forward and guess what? I still love a great pair of giant frames! What to know what I don’t like? Sure you do! I don’t like choosing…

Short Skirts and Long Jackets

I want a girl in a short skirt and a long jacket. Come on, you remember that Cake song, right? When I see these photos I want to sing that song. It was a great song! Just like the song, I do love pairing short dresses and skirts with long jackets (previous looks here and here). I’ve been doing it every season and it feels so glam! I love no fuss looks but sometimes I want to glam things up a bit! Instant glam is easy to create if you have the right pieces. In my opinion, a longline coat…

Mix things up with ROMWE

How beautiful is it outside lately! If you don’t live in my area I’ll go ahead and tell you – It’s fantastic! Spring is in full bloom and I’m loving it. I have such a love for Springtime (check out why I love Spring here). Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different wardrobe textures, colors, and looks. I love to mix lux and more affordable pieces into my daily work looks. Some of the most simple yet polished outfits can be made by pairing a simple wardrobe piece with a lux item. For this look, I paired this cardi with a…

Meet Ms. Pompadour!

I love having long hair and I love how confident and feminine I feel when my hair looks great. When I’m having a great hair day, I feel like I can take over the world. Nothing beats feeling confident. I’ve been growing my hair out over the last couple of years and it’s finally the length I love. I have one hair goal – keep it healthy. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, great hair requires great products. I recently had the opportunity of trying some great new hair products that are set to launch at the…
