Surya Brasil Amazonia Preciosa Ucuuba Nourishing Hair Mask

When you have a passion for switching up your hair color, swimming in the pool and messy buns, your hair goes through a lot!  One quick and fun way to give your hair the love it needs so it looks more like silk and less like straw is to use a hair mask.  Did you know that shampoo and soaps work just as well without foam? They just put it in for psychological reasons we associate foam with clean. Most beauty products create this foam with a chemical called SLS. I am so happy to see on the Surya website that their products are all SLS free!  Say yes to happy hair and luminous skin 🙂

Yay to great hair or wigs and nay to fake foam!  Why do organic products matter? You are not eating this. But actually you ARE eating it, your skin is the largest organ in your body and what you put on your skin does get ‘EATEN’ and absorbed into your body! Think about that!

This 100% vegan, natural and organic conditioner certified by EcoCert®, strengthens and reconstructs hair from the roots to the ends. Rich in Vitamins E, B1, B3, B6, Omega-3, copper and zinc. Rich Brazilian nut oils will instantly smooth and fortify each and every strand. Ideal when used with Amazonia Preciosa Brazil Nut Shampoo and Conditioner.

Motorola MBP33 Wireless Video Baby Monitor

Guest Blog by Adalhi!

I am smack in the newborn haze, nursing at all hours, staying up with a baby who is wide awake-only to juggle the baby and chase a toddler during the day.

Mother’s day is still very new for me, becoming a mother for the first time in 2014, and now just given birth to my second child at the beginning of April. Plans this year will be low key and mellow at home with lots of toddler energy and newborn cuddles.

FullSizeRenderThere were just a few things I had to set up for baby #2. One of them being a monitor. I set up a Motorola monitor to be able to see the baby while playing with the toddler or getting stuff done around the house. Honestly it was so easy to set up, I hate to admit that I have yet to read the instructions, but it really is “sleep deprived” set up friendly.

while my husband is still on paternity leave, he has been making small gestures daily as mini “Mother’s Day.” My favorite one thus far  has been him taking the baby daily from me after the 7am feed, puts her down for a nap, lets me sleep, and preps the meals for the day with the toddler.

Those precious uninterrupted moments of sleep really help, and I will miss them when he is back at work. But for now I am going to cherish them, knowing he has an eye on the little.

MBP33S Digital Video Baby Monitor enables you to always keep an eye on baby, even when not in the same room. The monitor has a two-way audio feature that allows you to clearly communicate as if you are in the same room with your little one. Remote zoom and infrared night vision are optimal for keeping an eye on things in very low light levels and multiple camera viewing allows you to add additional cameras and keep an eye on the entire family in up to 4 rooms of your home. With Motorola’s MBP33S, you’re free to watch them dream.
Additional features include:
• Wireless Technology: 2.4 GHz FHSS • 2.8” Diagonal Color Screen
• Digital Zoom
• Two-Way Communication
• Room Temperature Display
• Infrared Night Vision
• High Sensitivity Microphone • Up to 1000ft Range*
• Out-of-Range Alert
• Volume Control
• Sound Level Indicator
• Low Battery Alert
• Rechargeable Battery (Parent Unit)
• 5 Lullabies
• Pair up to 4 Baby Units (Model: MBP36SBU, sold separately)

Nivea Lip Challenge

From a quick swipe of shimmer for a rooftop happy hour to making sure your lips are protected against the sun at the beach, Nivea has something for everyday!

20160228_181239

I took the Nivea Lip Challenge, to use all the lipbalms from Monday to Friday and the result? Super moisturized lips!

My favorite was the Mint & Minerals Lip Care. This lipbalm was not too greasy yet it kept my lips from being dry in this crazy Las Vegas heat.

  • The smooth textured balm is enriched with Shea Butter and a refreshing hint of mint.
  • Enriched with Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil, this formula soothes and helps protect lips from dryness.
  • Keeps lips moisturized all day

On Tuesday, we went out for dinner and I wanted a bit of a tint so I use the Care & Color Sheer. The coral was a bit different from my usual pink so I loved it!

The rest of the week I couldn’t stop using the Smoothness Hydrating SPF 15 Lip balm! Perfect for the sunny days and just so convenient.
