Clairol Root Touch Up via Influenster review

*sample release*

I can remember the day I spied the enemy within my hairline, that day cookies and cream became my favorite ice cream flavor lol. Nah, but seriously, what does getting grey hair really mean tho? It definitely doesn’t mean you’re about to die, it just means you’re about to start buying some hair dye lol!!

I wanna say it has been within the last 5 years that I have been dyeing the front of my hairline, it is the only place that’s going grey for now. When I dye my hair I normally use the Dark & Lovely “natural black” color which lasts me about 6 weeks.

When Influenster invited me to review the Clairol Root Touch Up hair product I was intrigued and up for the challenge. This product is pretty much a “quick fix” hair product and I recommend this for people who are on-the-go a lot because it’s an easy carry around. It looks like an eyeshadow pallet honestly.

If you don’t want to be bothered with the messy dye all over your hands, clothes or sink then this is your girl…. it’s so user friendly you can do it with your eyes closed.

Here are my results

Before

After

It applies just like putting on eyeshadow, the formula is a powder substance and covers the grey instantly!! The cons to this is that it’s not long lasting and you should expect transfer while putting on shirts over your head as well as transfer to your pillow.

I will definitely use this in between dyeing sessions!!

Have you started to grey in your hairline? If so, what do you use as a Root Touch Up?

I’ve got plans

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a lover of journals and the freedom it allows a person to be one with your thoughts. My mother was never a fan of it because she always mentioned the possibility of it landing in the wrong hands (or eyes). I never cared about that as I would always put a “read at your own risk” warning label on the front of my journals lol. 

Planners are the same as journals but different if that makes any sense. One can still jot down their thoughts AND include daily reminders of important daily activities. I have taken a liking to planners, Create 365 The Happy Planner to be specific. I went back and forth trying to decide the best one that represents me (which you’ll see is so me). I can literally spend hours in Michael’s, Hobby Lobby & Joann’s looking at the various styles of planners. 

I tell you no lie that I stumbled upon a “plan with me” (PWM) video on YouTube and I was immediately sold! Just the way you can buy or make sticker kits to spruce up your planner set, my creative gears were set in motion. Y’all remember my paper pad post, those will come in handy too!! 

Now Create 365/The Happy Planner/ MAMBI (Me & My Big Idea) recently released a new Happy Planner Girl collection of 12 planners (along with matching accessories) exclusive to Hobby Lobby & Joann’s Fabric on October 16. From the moment they uploaded a showcase preview on their YouTube channel of the entire collection, I set my eyes on one and went on a mission. 

I managed to snag these at Hobby Lobby last Friday cause a girl needs to use those 40% off coupons (and not pay shipping).

I chose Glam Girl 

And a few of its accessories

I also purchased some sticker books

This planner is dated but I’m anticipating using this planner for a very long time…. Glam IS my jam!!
Are you the planner type? If so, what are currently using and what’s your favorite planner brand?

Sweetest Day FOTD

If you’re from the Chi there’s only a small number of excuses I’ll accept explaining why you don’t know about Sweetest Day!! 
To be fair, if my man wasn’t from Chicago I probably wouldn’t have known either lol. So yeah he schooled me about the whole “Valentine’s Day for men” ordeal. Since he moved thousands of miles here to Florida for the sake of our relationship I do try to oblige his “special occasion”. Now that I think of it, then I don’t need to get him a Valentine’s Day gift right?!

Here’s my Sweetest Day look, I used Juvia’s place “The Magic” & “Sahara” palette for this look.

I couldn’t decide on whether to wear a nude lip or a gold lip, but I ended up wearing a nude lip.

Shirt is from Macy’s.

Way Back Wednesday #4- Duck

The winner for #4 episode of Way Back Wednesday is the spawn from a comical “reality” show Duck Dynasty. Say what you want but I enjoyed watching this show. The wit of the brothers, wives, parents and kids just put me in a happy place to see a family enjoying each other.

One day prancing through Walmart clearance aisle I spotted these polishes, never knew they even existed until that moment. I did know that they had other promotional items like cups and swamp themed placemats and such, but what a pleasant surprise to see polish! I was there for it!! These released back in 2014.

I like the glitter based formula, had zero problems with the application. If these polishes was just a trial run, they should have made more for a marathon. I hope my thoughts convey to you that I’d buy more if produced lol.

Did you see these in Walmart? Better yet, did you ever watch the show?

Makeup Revolution Iconic Matte Lipstick Swatches 

Y’all I’m trying to post more, can’t you tell?! I’m really thinking about making a set schedule for posting days but then I don’t want to fail at keeping it up. If any of you have suggestions on how to come up with a good way to schedule posts let me know. 

I’m trying to get some makeup out of my “to film” pile. I figured instead of having to do the filming and editing I can just take the pics, crop, edit and upload–easy peasy!

These are matte formula lipsticks that lasts for about 5 hours. Expect transfer. They are opaque for application, but they’re not a hard matte finish. These can be purchased in Ulta for $5.00. 


For those days when you just desire a comfortable matte lipstick in non liquid form, I think these will saffice. Inexpensive, comfortable and quality, that’s what we’re always looking for right!

What are your “go to” inexpensive non-liquid lipstick matte lipsticks?

New Maybelline The Loaded Bold Lipsticks


Hey y’all!! 

So I picked these new lippies up one day last week… Haven’t gotten a chance to rock any of them yet, but I wanted you all to see my new babies. These are available at Target for now as far as I know. They retail for $5.59 and come in 20 shades, however the Target display only has 18 shades. There’s a black and white shade that are missing (don’t see those purchases in my future anyway).



Check out the ones I picked up…



These are definitely bold for any season!!
Which one (if not all) do you see yourself wearing?

Thanks for reading!
