3 Simple Products for My Winning Hair Combination

**Bought It**
Since I took the dive to go dark a couple months ago, I have had to totally change my hair care routine. In addition to that, I have made a promise to my hair that I would lay off the heat... or at least use less heat. While this is a tall ask, there are so many products out that that makes it totally possible. 
First, I usually shower at night. I am a gym rat and I only do a full head wash every 4 days. In between, I rinse with water and use dry shampoo... come on, I'm not a gross ball. I usually let my hair air dry. With super thick and curly hair, this creates a whole slew of problems when I wake up if I don't use any products. 
After my shower, I usually wrap my hair up in a towel for about an hour and then apply all of my goodies. The first product to go in is:
Briogeo 
Once I comb through the Briogeo, I spray in:
L'Oreal- Air Dry It It's a wave spray that has a de-frizz in it. I picked this up on a whim and I fell in love. It keeps my hair feeling …

Our Top 4 Destinations for THIS Summer- Exposed

Image
This year has been such a stressful year for me and I promised myself all year that I was going to go big this summer. I deserve a reward for this years test of perseverance and strength. Pretty much every week, I was making a list of a place we were going to visit. Before I knew it, I was waaayyy over budget and waaayyy over time. So, here I sit to finalize my list and I would love some feedback! Tour de Ohio Last year we talked and talked about going to visit Sandusky, Ohio. It borders Lake Erie and is right in the middle of Toldeo and Cleveland. We were looking at doing a 4-5 day trip where we did a day in Sandusky to check out Cedar Point OR Kalahari Waterparks and then move over to Cleveland and finish up with a scenic ride back to Pittsburgh. Cleveland would be the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland Museums and Zoo and either the Maritime Museum or Police Museum (kids pick).   Philadephia, PA Both myself and my husband grew up on the east coast of PA. We took Philadelphia for…

6 NEW GlowsStix Colors to Jesse's Girl that You HAVE TO See!

Image
**Press Samples**
 I am a huge fan of Jesse's Girl products and I am an even bigger fan when there is a new release from an already great line up. I was proud to share the original collection of GlowStix a good while back and when I found out there were new colors coming out, I was so pumped! I thought these were the coolest things to hit lip color in such a long time.  I was sent 6 new colors and 2 old colors and they come in a new packing with more product. Twice the amount than the original packaging. I have a little video comparison of the old version vs the new version so that you can see the difference for yourself.   As you can see the colors are not only amazing in the bottle, but also on the skin. In the video, you can see I swatched these over some brighter colors and then over some darker colors to see all of the options you have!  GlowStix are a true holographic gloss. This means they are on the thicker side and will build rather quickly. So, while you may be excited …

Spring Ahead with these 5 Products from Sephora Play! Box

Image
**Bought It**
This month was a great staple refresher for me. While most of these products were not new to me, they were products that I have had in my Sephora shopping cart for quite some time that just kept getting pushed off for the newest palette or lipstick. So... thank you Sephora for restashing me!! Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12hr Wear Waterproof  I have this same pencil in the same shade- Flirting Game. I love it because it's not your typical black or brown. It's a perfect alternative to a full eye look on my lazy days. One of my favorite ways to use this is to line on the outer top and bottom and then use a smudge brush to pull it inward and blend. It creates a very subtle smokey eye. Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Ginseng + Biotin Volumizing Spray I am a huuuuuge fan of everything Briogeo these days. From their shampoo and conditioner to their finishing creme. I love this spray. I've been using it on towel dried hair after my shower. I put it in a braid and …

 Spring is in the air... finally! After this atrocious snow storm we had a couple days ago, I see grass poking out again, birds chirping and sun shining. I am soooo ready for Spring! To help me dance into that warm weather are some warm colors from Zoya for their Spring collection- Thrive! Check them out!
Darby
Darby is a dusty gray-blue metallic color. It is truly the perfect blend of these two colors. It does't lean too strongly either way.
 When I first saw the description of this color, I was worried that it was going to be too drab, but this color is not anywhere near that. As a matter of fact, I wore Darby all last week and I love it! It's so dainty and refreshing.

Brandi
Zoya describes Brandi as a pink blush creme. When I saw this color, I thought in my mind that this color belongs in what I call the "the Zoya watermelon" group. All of those perfectly creamy pinks that have just that little bit of summer in them.
 Brandi is beautiful and when …

MY Favorites from the Sephora February Play! Box

Image
**Bought It**
For me, February's Play! Box from Sephora was awesome! I love every single product I got and I have been using almost all of them daily. Almost all just because I have this thing with wearing the same lipstick two days in a row. It's just a Brigitte thing... ignore it! FARMACY Green Clay Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm This.. this is my new cold cream. When I am wearing heavy makeup, it's such a pain to take off unless I remove, wash and repeat 3 times. With the Farmacy remover, it gently removes and it really takes everything off. Some ingredients in this Cleansing Balm include sunflower oil and ginger root.  FRESH Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 in Rose This little awesome-in-a-tube is now a staple in my purse.  I put it on throughout the day for protection and to keep my lips feeling moisturized through the stress and end of winter dry. This also has a slight tint that gives your lip a little color.  LAURA MERCIER Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rose Gold This i…
