1. Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics| 2. Listerine Whitening Restoring Mouthwash|3. Secret Outlast Deodorant| 4. TRESemmé Heat Tamer Protective Spray
Goooood morning! I know most ‘must have’ lists include designer bags and expensive clothes but I wanted to share some great products that are affordable & can improve the rest of your week!
The ribbon elastics feel so much better than the basic elastic hair bands. They don’t pull or tug while you wear them. They do cost a little more but not by much.
The Listerine mouthwash is a new addition to my teeth cleaning routine but it’s exactly what I needed. My teeth are cavity prone and not as white as they could be thanks to my daily cup of jo. I’ve tried whitening strips before but they left my teeth super sensitive and did nothing to help my enamel.
48 hour deodorant is aaaammmmaaaazzzziiiing. No, I don’t go days without reapplying and I’m not exceptionally smelly Lol but I’m usually out of the house for long periods of time doing a million different things. This stuff lasts through it all. And it’s so much better than having to carry a deodorant around with you. I shove enough stuff in my purse so the less I have to add, the better.
I stopped buying heat tamer to save a few dollars and my ends started splitting and my hair became rough and dry. This is not the area to make budget cuts in! Lesson learned.
These basic products will definitely improve your week!Plus you can get it all for under $20, maybe even under $15 if you find a sale. A new deodorant may not be as chic as that handbag you’ve been eyeing but when the holidays come around and your rushing from one gathering to the next, you’ll be glad you spent a few dollars on some of the little things.
I am so happy to share my new online boutique with you!
I’ve been wanting to open up an online shop for awhile and I get super tingly at the thought of finally having it all set up. Take a look and let me know what you think! Is there anything you’re hopping to see added to the shop soon?
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts <3
After my birthday back in September, I became more aware of the signs of aging on my face. I’m only 25 but you can see the little wrinkles forming and a bit of dullness setting in.
One day, after a long & full life, I’ll be much more okay with looking like the cute grandma from the Up Lol but I’m suppose to be in my prime right now! The universe must have also had a hard time looking at me because it sent a wonderful company my way, Enza Essentials.
Most products seem great initially so I wanted to test my new skincare kit out for a couple weeks and give you girls the best possible review.
I can sum up my thoughts in two words, it works! I have nothing to gain from giving you a phony story about how great this stuff, trust me. Enza Essentials will provide you with the results you’re looking for.
My skin tone is more even and my fine lines are being softened and erased with each wash. And for the occasional breakout, I’ve been using their spot extractor which can significantly reduce blemishes in a day or two. That impressed me. Once a blemish shows up, I normally have to wait a week or two before it disappears.
I’m using Enza’s extraction system but they can help you find the right system for your skin. I highly recommend this skincare line (which was created by a plastic surgeon!) to anyone looking to get clear, youthful, and healthy looking skin. If you’ve been searching for products and have been trying to figure out what works, take a chance on Enza, you won’t regret it!
Let me know if you have any questions or want to know more about my experience with Enza Essentials!

Throwing it back to last week’s adventure. Pfeiffer beach was beautiful! It lived up to and then surpassed all of my expectations. I owe you more photos of it; I’m still sorting through everything. I did find a great shot of the coast that Will took. Pretty awesome right?

Tomorrow morning we’re heading out of LA and up to Big Sur! I was blessed with a Mini Cooper Convertible for my 25th birthday last month and what’s the best way to break in a convertible? A long coastal drive through beautiful redwoods.
I still can’t believe my Nina & Tio Joe got me a car…I thought this type of stuff only happened in movies! Lol
The trip takes about five and a half hours but we’ll be making a few stops for food and… Hearst Castle!
I’ll be a M.I.A. for a few days but don’t worry, I’ll come back with lots of photos to share and hopefully more videos :)
Follow me on Instagram @MsLoveNiki and Twitter @MsLoveNiki to watch as our adventure unfolds!
I have gone through “it’s time for a change, I need a bob haircut” cycle quite a few times. And after the new haircut high wears off a few weeks later, I find myself desperately looking for ways to make my hair grow as long as possible as quickly as possible.
I’ve definitely learned a few things and accepted some difficult truths about hair and growing it out. Here’s what you should know:
1. Stop cutting it. Sounds silly to say but it’s the only way to start adding length. I had a hard time giving up a visit to the salon. It feels awesome to have someone wash you hair! If you have damaged hair, you can stop by the salon for a trim but be sure to space out your appointments so that you’re gaining more than you’re losing.
2. Be patient, it’s going to take YEARS. It’s true. Go ahead, cry. If you want long flowy hair it takes A LONG time. You get about 6 inches a year and that’s before deducting anything you may have trimmed off.
3. You don’t look like her. You know that pinterest photo of that girl with long, sexy, thick hair you stare at daily? Well that’s not you or your hair. That was harsh…sorry…Lol But seriously, very few people warn you that when you grow your hair out it might not look anything like you expected it to.
I was expecting loooong luscious wavy goodness once I got my hair down to my mid back but instead it’s heavy, straight, and a little stringy. I have to rely on styling tools and products for thick looking voluminous hair
4. Massage your scalp. Get the blood flowing to your scalp! A gentle massage increases circulation which aids your body in delivering nutrients to your locks which is a must for optimal hair growth.
5. Eat your carrots! Your diet shows. And I don’t just mean on your waistline. Hair tends to reflect your health (both mental and physical) so eat well and take time to combat stress with relaxing activities.
Hope this helps! Let me know what hair struggles you’re currently dealing with!
