Introducing my camera : Samsung NX3000

My Samsung NX3000  Scroll to the bottom of this post to view some test shots with it!  On Saturday, I had my graduation party where I was surrounded by all my wonderful friends and the boyfriend. At the end of the party, my boyfriend and best friend asked everyone to take a group photo so as he was taking the photo, my best friend told him to grab her phone so he could take the photo. He went inside my room and suddenly came out with this beauty! I was so surprised because I was expecting my parents to get the camera for me after my graduation. Get a nice long look at this camera because hopefully you won’t see it too much (since I’ll be taking photos with it from now on!). This is my first non point and shoot camera and I couldn’t be happier! It is super light and compact – which makes it great for traveling, and for shooting vlogs!   Brandon was also sweet enough to charge it the day prior to my party, buy me …

Organic Dandelion Root Tea – Kiss Me Organics!

Organic Dandelion Root Tea – With Hibiscus & Cinnamon Time for another review! Hopefully you guys aren’t too tired of my reviews by now, I know that lately my blog has been filled with so many… but I promise, just a few more reviews and then back to blogging about other things! Now, I don’t know if I’ve mentioned before… but I am not a fan of coffee. I mean, sure, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll see that I occasionally drink coffee – but that’s only if I have a long day ahead of me or if I have a weekend all to myself. I’ve heard plenty of horror stories about people who are so addicted to coffee (aka my sister) and they get headaches if they go a day without coffee. Oh the horror!  Cue to Kiss me Organics! They have an all natural & organic Dandelion Root Tea that is also infused with Hibiscus & Cinnamon! Now, I love love love tea! If you haven’t noticed, I’ve tried both the Herbalife Tea & Tiny Tea; but …

Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum Review

Vitamin C Serum for Face 20% With Vitamin E & Hyaluronic Acid I’m a huge fan of serums. If you have been following my skincare routine, I have been using makeupartist choice’s mandelic acid serum for 2 years now. But, with almost all skincare products – your skin hits a plateau after a while. So, I was on the lookout for a new serum that could help me achieve healthy, glowing skin. So, when I was sent a bottle of Amara Organic’s Vitamin C Serum , I was overjoyed! Afterall, everyone knows the benefits of Vitamin C.

Vitamin C has been shown to be just as effective at reversing the effects of time and environmental damage to the skin.” and also… Increases the production of collagen to bring back skin’s natural elasticity and counteract fine lines and wrinkles Powerful antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals to reverse damage caused by the sun, pollutants, and cigarette smoke Protects your skin from UV damage such as age spots, …

Pura d’or Hair & Body Care Review

Pura d’or Hair & Body Care Review This was seriously a gift from the heavens! I was so excited when I was gifted three products from  Pura d’or Hair & Body Care. My hair has been falling out so much that my sister told me that she noticed it was thinning.

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion+ Review

  It was 106 degrees in Long Beach today! Summer is finally here! At a very young age, I learned to put on sunscreen; not only will it help lighten hyperpigmentation, it’ll also prevent dark spots from emerging. If I don’t apply sunscreen religiously, I try my best to wear a hat so that the sun’s rays don’t damage my skin. Did this picture frighten you as much as it scared me?   The New England Journal of Medicine article published last year showed a shocking photo of a 69-year-old man with a 28 year history of sun exposure on just half of his face. The patient was a truck driver, and the left side of his face was chronically exposed to the sun.

Clarisonic Mia – A Product Review

Ahhhhh, my all time favorite thing to use on my face. I love my Clarisonic although getting the replacement heads get annoying after a while (but, I’ve only used like 4 heads so far).. I have the MIA, so different from the picture listed above but after reading some reviews of the Mia 2, I don’t think I’ll shell out any money to upgrade mine. My sister got me this for my birthday and I’ve been using it ever since (Except when I travel or am too lazy after a night out to use it.) The Mia boasts a lot of things, on the website it lists: Clarisonic Cleansing by the Numbers CLINICAL PROOF CONSUMER PROOF 6X Better cleansing than hands alone 94% Report softer skin 61% Greater absorption of Vitamin C after use 90% Report more radiant, glowing skin 2X Daily use is proven safe and gentle Also, it is said that after using the Clarisonic to clean your face, your products will penetrate your skin more effectively as the Clarisonic removes dead skin …
