*This review was made possible by a sample received from Zenwise Labs through Brandbacker, all reviews/opinions are my own* Now you all already know how I am about my hair, while I may not style that sucker on the regular with runway styles I do take extremely good care of my hair.

The secret to my long shiny hair has always been vitamins. While I was doing fertility treatments I took prenatal vitamins nightly and saw a tremendous change in my hair and nails.

*This review was made possible by a sample received from Monat Global through iFabbo Shops, all opinions/reviews are my own*Thanks for the fabulous ladies over at iFabbo shops I was able to score a sample of Monat Global Rejuveniqe™ Oil Intensive.  My hair can be an insane mess, I'm not really good at doing my hair. My routine basically consists of shampoo and condition twice a week, most days it's mouse and go. On the rare occasions I feel up to it I flat iron, or curl. Do not ask me to blow dry for some reason I cannot get the hang of it. In any case my hair gets extremely damaged. The alcohol in the mouse/hairspray plus the direct heat of the curling iron and flat iron ...

Product Review: Spa Sonic
Tuesday, November 04, 2014

*This review was made possible by a press sample received from Spa Sonic, all opinions are my own* I have always been a huge Clarisonic Mia fan, my husband bought me one as an anniversary present a few years ago and it has been a staple in my skin care routine ever since. However this isn't something I would have purchased on my own because the price is just too high to justify it. Which is why I jumped at the chance to receive this sample for review. Many of the questions I know I will be hit with is does the Spa Sonic equal to the Mia. There are a few key differences:The Spa Sonic is battery operated, the Clarisonic requires a plug charger with a base.The Spa Sonic brush head physically ...
