Here’s what grabbing my attention this month….

The Invisibobble is my new favorite hair elastic, because it’s so much more than an elastic. It doesn’t kink your hair, or cause split ends. It replaces the need for bobbypins, by securing while holding your hair.

My hair is soft and light because I’m using Shea Moisture’s Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Creme Rinse. It’s extreamly lightweight so your hair can reach volume goals. It’s organic and filled with good stuff like dragon fruit, lychee berry, and green apple extracts.

The volume doesn’t stop at my hair, my lashes are feeling it to. My new go-to mascara is Loreal’s Feline Noir. It gives instant volume, with full lash density and an intense black color.

My makeup drawer has another addition. Skinfood’s spoon foundation brush. It is made for foundation but I use it for blending. It’s best for when I go to heavy on the bronzer or blush to really spread it out.
