@JohnfriedaUS Porcupine Brush

Since I have been growing my hair long, I have tried an array of brushes.  The latest is the John Freida Porcupine Brush

  • Deep-shine silicone strips create shine, smooth flyaway hair and help reduce frizz.
  • Silicone lasts for the life of the product.
  • Tourmaline – 100% crushed gemstones release natural IONS for intense shine.
  • IONS help flatten hair’s cuticle layer, leaving hair looking shiny and reducing frizz.
  • Use with the John Frieda® Full Volume Dryer to increase benefits.
  • Combination of nylon and boar bristles distributes the scalp’s own natural oils for added shine and smoothness.
  • Use to straighten curly or wavy hair or add volume and curl.


Cooking with @GoOrgreenic

One of the things that I don’t like about cooking is the cleaning up process.  I love my new orGREENic cooking pan because it is simply the easiest pan to clean I have ever used!  It is a ceramic pan that is designed to cook with little to no oil for something wayyyyy healthier.  It works because it’s non-stick and perfect for stir fry veggies and cooking chicken!

I decided to make Chicken Pineapple Pizza and I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try out my orGreenic pan!  The food never sticks.

I love TV gadgets but this one has worked better than other I have used.  Here we go… look at this.
1st: Cook the Chicken

2: Spoon the chicken onto the crust (I used a pita!)

And Voila!
Look how easy it was to clean.

Skinny Girl Body Wash by @Bethenny

Ever imagine having a cocktail in the shower?  Now you can!

Check out this new line available at Wal-Mart. Skinnygirl Face and Body products is perfect for pampering yourself with a straightforward and natural face and body regimen. Proper skincare is all about being consistent; this whole collection is simple, yet luxurious and will fit into your everyday skincare routine. The gift set includes: nourishing body lotion, cleansing body wash and invigorating body scrub that leaves your skin supple, healthy and refreshed.

My thoughts: The smell is so fresh and different than anything I have in my bathroom!  I really love the scrub especially because there are not big grains or beads but a very smooth yet effective bits in a gel like consistency.  The scrub works better than most I have tried and a little seems to go a long way.  The shower gel works best when you put it on a wet loofah.  I would definitely get this for all friends!  This is a great bachelorette goodie or a housewarming gift for the girl who has everything.

New Fragrance by @Rihanna

Rebelle is the second fragrance by popstar Rihanna, to be launched this Spring2012. Although I’m not a fan of celebrity fragrances, I was pleasantly surprised by the fruity/floral-y scent of Rebelle.  A brighter scent than its darker, deeper counterpart Reb’l Fleur, this perfume hits undertones of strawberry, ginger, plum, cacao, coffee and musk. I love the fresh smell of it that lingers as you pass, and it’s the perfect go-to scent for this season!



Say GOODBYE to dry skin with @VaselineBrand

When it comes to skincare, I like to keep it simple, but I’m also VERY particular. My routine consists of black soap and raw shea butter, however, I recently ran out of shea butter, and haven’t had much time to go pick some up. Lucky for me, I received the new Vaseline Total Moisture Lotion, so my worries of becoming an ashy larry were put to rest! The new Total Moisture Lotion is a multi-vitamin moisturizer, that replenishes 100% of daily hydration, along with the essential nutrients that skin needs to be vibrant and feel healthy every day.

Key Ingredients

  • Vitamins A, E, & minerals – essential skin nutrients
  • Conditioning moisturizers – provide 100% of daily hydration

I have really sensitive skin so I have to be careful about the products that I use, and this lotion has been really good to me. My skin stays moisturized, soft and smooth all day long, and I definitely wasn’t expecting that. I love the Cocao Radiant (helps even skin tone), and adore the freshness of the Aloe Fresh (perfect for the summer!)


It definitely kept my skin RIGHT during fashion week! No ashiness in sight!

peace and love


ps: Thanks to Vaseline for saving me from becoming an ashy larry!!
