thrift store accessory finds…

April 1, 2010

Get ready for lots and lots and lots of photos.

Here are all my lovely thrift store accessory finds! I love the black and gold rectangle necklace, the silky nautical scarf, the brown textured clutch…well actually I love ALL of it!!! The gold and blue belt was a really interesting yet beautiful find! I can’t wait to wear that with a cute summer dress!

I’m a huge sucker for thrift stores and today was not exception…especially because every 15 minutes they would announce “Today only, all merchandise 25-percent off.” How could I resist?! Three dollar belt and 25-percent off…yes, please. Four dollar earrings and 25-percent off…yes, please. You get the idea.

I will be posting my apparel finds soon! So check back for the rest of my thrift store haul ๐Ÿ™‚

sulfate-free shampoo + giveaway!

March 30, 2010

sulfate-free shampooYou may be asking: What is a sulfate?

A salt of sulfuric acid. Sulfates are used in everything from toothpaste to engine de-greasers. Sulfates are a common ingredient in industrial strength topical cleaning agents!!! Yuck! I know!

Sfree shampoo is free of all those yucky sulfates then make your hair weak and brittle. Sulfates dry-out your hair by stripping it of its natural oils, leaving you will course, dry and vulnerable locks.

A long time ago, late at night I purchased WEN Cleansing Conditioner from an informercial, because it promised to cleanse my hair without those any harsh chemicals and detergents found in traditional shampoos.

I anxiously anticipated the arrival of my WEN products. I thought the shampoo was wonderful!!! After about 3 weeks my hair started to feel weighted-down, oily and full of product. I kept using it to see if it was just a little speed bump in what I thought was a great product…it wasn’t a speed bump.

My hair never got soft and silky again after the 3 weeks of using the WEN Cleansing Conditioner. {I did a review on this product a long time ago if you want to read that entry: https://geishapearl.wordpress.com/2009/08/07/product-review-wen-cleansing-conditioner/}

The moral of the little story above is that it is relatively hard to find a shampoo without sulfates and detergents that actually cleans your hair and KEEPS it feeling clean! Sfree is a huge except to this!!!

After my first use of the Sfree shampoo I was hooked, but as you can from my WEN story I needed to be sure. So I kept using the product. As week 3 approached was a little nervous the product would stop working. I had high hopes, because I loved the shampoo! Week 3 came and went and my hair still felt amazingly clean and very moisturized….week 4 came and went….week 5 came and went…week 6 came and went…and my hair still felt absolutely amazing!

Sfree shampoo never felt like it was weighing-down my hair! My hair had bounce and felt silky smooth. I have also noticed how strong my hair felt–I have little to no split-ends, which is usual for me because of all the heat styling I do to my hair!

…Oh and the smell! It’s a wonderful assortment of citrus smells like grapefruit and hints of lemon and orange. The smell is great because it’s truly a unisex-smell. It has a very refreshing and relaxing scent, perfect for a morning or evening shower!

My overall option of the products is I LOVE IT! I will definitely keep Sfree shampoo in my daily hair routine for a long time! I would strongly recommend this product to every hair type, texture, cut, color, length, and style!

Olivia Palermo. Isn’t she beautiful?! I don’t watch The City really anymore. I’m kind of glad I don’t because I didn’t really like her, but her style on the other hand – I LOVE! Who’s your celebrity style do you obsess over?

Mine: Kim Kardashian, Olivia Palermo, Nicole Richie, and Lauren Conrad

Have a wonderful and warm weekend everyone! I’m going up north to visit some friends and see my lil sis at college!!

Forever21 is probably my favorite, must-stop-shop when I’m out shopping at the mall! They have such a variety of clothes that are dirt cheap!! I will say the quality isn’t always the greatest, but I figure you get what you pay for. You buy a trend and my the time the trend has died the garment is usually on it’s last leg. About 65% of my closet is made up of Forever21 clothes…the others are thrift stores, Target, H&M and the occasional splurge.

Above are my favorites from Forever21’s Love21 line…I love, love the floral romper!!! I want it ๐Ÿ™‚
