Lately, I’ve been really into taking care of my hair and skin but I’ve been noticing that even though I’ve tried almost every hair mask on the market, I haven’t noticed a difference in my hair. I’ve tried it all, from macadamia hair masks, argan oil, olaplex, biotin and much more but nothing gives me the results I want. My hair is very dry from being blonde and all the bleach I’ve put it through so finding something to help with the overall health of my hair is important. I’ve been doing a hair mask for a while now with just organic coconut oil but I still haven’t seen much of a difference in my hair. I decided to use an at home hair mask my mom told me about years ago. It includes a few products that you can easily find in your kitchen.
Olive Oil – 2 Teaspoons
Egg (room temperature) – 1 Large
Coconut Oil (preferably certified organic) – 2 Teaspoons
Honey – 1 Teaspoon
Plastic Shower Cap – 1
Step 1 – Beat one egg in a small bowl
Step 2 – Add in all other ingredients and mix
Step 3 – Apply mixture to dry hair while massaging it in. Once it’s all in quickly put on shower cap!
Step 4 – Let it soak into your hair for 20-30 minutes
Step 5 – Shampoo and condition as usual.
This mask is amazing and will leave your hair feeling silky smooth! The good thing about it is that you’re using natural ingredients that doesn’t include anything you can’t pronounce. I highly recommend doing this mask at least once a week for best results. After my first try, it left me with good hair for a week. If you try it out please let me know your thoughts…

Back to school, back to NYFW, and back to life. Unfortunately summer has come to an end and when I say summer I mean the days where I can take a beach day or go on a random night out. That time has come to a close for me because the fall semester has commenced and this is my last year in college. I have a ton on my plate, and although I had planned so much for summer posts for my blog and YouTube, none of that worked out the way I thought it would. I posted here and there, but my lack of consistency is very evident. I’m taking 6 classes, working and going to the gym at least 3-4 times a week which leaves little to no time to work on content. However, for some reason this is the time of year I find most of my inspiration and energy to post content for you guys.
I received a number of NYFW invites and I’m trying to squeeze them into my tight schedule, but realistically won’t be sure of my attendance until the day before. This is unfortunate, but is the same thing that has happened to me for the past seasons. I also have a weekend trip to Miami coming up in a little over a week which I am thrilled about. I haven’t been on a plane since January in the Philippines so I can’t wait. I will definitely be vlogging/shooting out there for my YouTube and blog so keep on the lookout for that.
As for what to expect in this new season… I posted a Back to School Makeup Tutorial recently, but also will be posting a ‘What’s in my School Bag?’ video, fall outfit inspirations, OOTD’s, product reviews, new beauty routines and much more!
Thanks for listening to my little rant and if you have any specific requests for posts, please leave them in the comments.

Marc Jacobs recently launched these new highlighting glow sticks and I’ve been using it nonstop since I’ve received it. I am pretty much obsessed with every item I try from Marc Jacobs beauty line. My top two favorite foundations are from this line as well as my all time favorite lipstick and mascara which brings me to the conclusion that Marc Jacobs can pretty much do no wrong. I would love to try out more products like the eye-shadows and blushes because I’ve heard some great things.
Today I want to discuss this glow stick in the shade spotlight (700). It looks like a deodorant straight out of the package and I was a little skeptical about it but after using it I think the packaging is genius, so easy to apply and glides on really smooth. The product itself is so pigmented and blends in effortlessly as you can see in the photos above. I think it’s the perfect illuminator for summer and if you wanted to glow even more you can add a powder highlighter over top but it’s not really necessary. It looks really natural and gives the perfect glow. Definitely check it out if you can because even though it’s a bit pricey I think it’s so worth it!
