Indulge these holidays with @MaijanBeauty

For the past two weeks I’ve been treating my hair to shampoo and conditioning treatments from Maijan. This dynamic company uses pure Argan oil in all its products to provide hair and skin with complete hydration and luxurious healing powers.

I was intrigued by Maijan because of their commitment in delivering all natural products. Their shampoo and conditioner combo protect hair with natural antioxidants, are sulfate- and paraben-free, 100% vegan and safe to use on colored or keratin-treated hair.

But the greatest thing about Maijan shampoo + conditioner is the hint of mint! Both products contain peppermint oil that adds a refreshing scent in and out of the shower. Plus, key ingredients such as aloe leaf juice, grape seed oil, apricot kernel oil, and hemp seed oil, make hair extremely silky smooth and so easy to manage.

Both the Maijan Pure Argan Oil & Mint Hydrating Shampoo + Condition is available exclusively on and during the holidays you can take an extra 30% off Maijan products.

So it’s a great idea to check out their entire line because it includes everything from essential oil treatments and all-natural facial kits to shimmer shine spray for those locks!

Winter Hair Remedy: ER Fusion Hair Treatment

Since my hair has been growing, I have taken more attention to tend to the dry ends. The winter dryness has not be helpful in my already ombre ends. They have been exceptionally dry recently.  I was so tempted to cut it all off but White Sands has a new product called ER Fusion that temporarily stopped me!  The path to Victoria Secret Angel hair is a long and strenuous path…
 It is a treatment that improves the hair from the inside out!   It comes in a tube similar to a leave-in conditioner.  It has a soft and pleasant smell.  The most important is that you leave the ER Fusion on your hair for 20 mins and ideally under heat.
My ends really really needed this Intensive Reconstructor badly! (works INSIDE the hair)
  • Brings hair back to a youthful condition
  • Weightless feel
  • High gloss shine
  • Contains hair color enhancer’s
  • Results last up to 30 days following each treatment
  • Needs 20 minutes of heat to activate
  • Skin care delivery system
  • Holds moisture in so your hair won’t frizz out
  • Increased flexibility, softness, shine and volume

It is really important to use this product exactly as directed to get the results you are looking for:
** Comb ER Fusion through clean, damp hair. Apply heat with a blow dryer to the scalp area for 20 minutes and then rinse. For enhanced results, shampoo your hair and rinse, then shampoo and rinse a second time then apply.

3 New Cold Weather Dog Treats @ilovemyk10 @preschoice


The weather outside is frightful!  I mean it isn’t THAT cold compared to seasonal norms but it is cold enough for you to say brrr and cut your walks short and make sure your naps are long. We are all in hoodies to stay cozy… With the change in weather, here are a few treats that can help you and your dog make it to the muddy spring!

1. K10+ Calming Formula – You mix this with water!  Similar to EmergenC for humans, this is a supplement to calm your dog (cabin fever anyone!!) of any anxiety. This is great for extended nap time, before unfamiliar guests come over, travel and just to relax your dog.  It comes in small little packets and they are easy to use. Just open and put into the water.

I put 1 packet in this water bowl. You can see the water turns a lemony yellow with bits floating. My dog drank it no problem… Vitamin Water for Dogs!

K-10+ is a line of soluble water vitamins where different formulas address various purposes in dog health – This one is calming but there are also ones for senior dogs, multivitamins and Glucosamine.

2. Betsy Farms Natural Chicken Jerky – Betsy Farms™ offers a line of high-quality jerky recipe treats that dogs love. Each product is made in the U.S.A. with wholesome ingredients sourced in America (all poultry is raised in the U.S.A.). The delicious treats are available in three varieties, including chicken, duck and turkey. Each product is made with real meat and provides protein that all dogs need. Theline is available exclusively at Sam’s Club and Walmart.

*Chicken, Barley, Tapioca, Chicken Liver, Vegetable Glycerin, Pea Protein, Corn Protein Concentrate, Dried Whey, Poultry Fat, Potassium Sorbate (preservative), Salt, Lactic Acid, Hickory Smoke Flavor, Mixed Tocopherols (preservative), Rosemary Extract, Colored With Annatto Extract”

As you all know, Jacob is really picky with treats and he LOVED the Betsey Farms Natural Jerky.  It is nice to have a hearty treat during the winter instead of a cold dry dog biscuit!  They don’t  I give one of these to him before bed and it sends him right off to puppy dreamland.



3. PC Nutrition First Dog Chicken Strips for Heart & Eyes –  My mom brought these for Jacob on her last trip and they have lasted a long time!  You can get it at any Superstore or Loblaws. They are real chicken strips and made in Thailand. There are only 3 ingredients: Chicken, Vitamin A Acetate, L-Carnitine.  The shape of these look just like a piece of chicken and none of the pieces are identical so I know they are not mass produced.  Jacob loves these too!

The @Puma x RIME Gold Sky Wedge @RIME_NYC

Greetings from your favorite party crasher!


So let’s just jump right in to it, last Friday there was an official Sneaker release party for Puma that went down in Brooklyn’s own Rime NYC! The party was for Puma’s new golden wedge sneaker for all the ladies out there, and I must say they are a really beautiful sneaker.


The party was great, the music was perfect and everybody was partying and having a good time. They even had a table where you can get your nails done for the ladies of course. Excellent event I must say oh and I can’t forget the free drinks all night!

Our good friends over at Rime NYC have been in the lab with Puma creating absolute golden perfection.  The colorway says it all: Gold Foil and Vanilla.  Absolutely delicious design, the Puma x Rime Women’s Sky Wedge Lux combines classic luxury and athletic styles.  The golden foil leather is met perfectly with a gum sole.  Look closely at the inner workings of the shoe, and you will see a creamy vanilla zig-zag pattern (via
