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



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?

Planner Layout week Nov 13-17

Hey people,

I’m still loving my new planner hobby, but what I’m not liking is the time frame I set out to create my layout. I’ve been setting time aside for Sunday afternoon and it’s not working. With me having to clean & prepare dinner I hate multitasking for that aspect. I feel rushed when doing my layout and anxiety takes its toll on time and I want my layout to be perfect or my vision of close to it. I know it’s just a planner but I love the weekly layout creations to be lively and represent me!!

With that being said, follow my new IG account dedicated to all things pretty and planner related. Follow me @planzilla_

Way Back Wednesday #6

Guess what day it is!! 

Yes, you guessed it! Not just hump day…. WAY BACK WEDNESDAY!!

Welcome back to the 6th episode, today features a polish collection circa 2014. I actually did not hunt these girls down, I just happened to spot them on a random stroll down the beauty aisle at Kmart. The display caught my attention, I googled them but weren’t able to find out much just that they are textured finish.

I liked these because the colors weren’t the common colors that brands were releasing like the reds, oranges, pinks. I remember these being semi sheer on the first two coats, but the third coat covered it opaque.

Here’s Rimmel’s 2014 textured finish polish collection “Sweetie Crush”.

Were you able to nail these?

Stay tuned for next week’s episode 7 of Way Back Wednesday, thanks for reading!

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 #6- Nails Inc.

I hope y’all are as proud of my dedication to the WBW posts as I am, I’m excited to see how far I can go in my collection!

So in front of the camera lens is episode 5 which features some throwback polishes circa 2012! The first time I saw swatches of these polishes was by The Polishaholic (see post here). I didn’t really frequent Sephora at the time, I mostly bought my lacquer from drug stores. After I purchased all 4 I felt bad because they were a bit pricey ($9.50), but once tried the formula and like it; the results began to override my buyer’s remorse! 

Do you remember (Michael Jackson voice)

My favorite shade is Topping Lane (pink one).

Thanks for reading and stay tuned to episode 6.
