Solid shampoo....say what?

KI have heard of shampoo bars before but never really gave them any thought because thats just weird, right?  

 Since I became a Perfectly Posh consultant ( ) I have decided to try every single product we have to offer! By doing this I can give my customers my honest opinion instead of searching for others. 

 Now let me introduce you to the BOOM Bar! 

  Now I am only on day two with this product so I will try and keep you up to date on my hair proccess and personal preferance. 

 The Boom bar is said to be vegan, safe on most color treated hair, natural, no color added, and has essential oil for fregrance.  Its suppose to be a deep clean and give mega volume.

  Day one I liked the smell of it and was nervous to give it a go. I mean who uses a solid soap to wash their hair? I figured my hair would be greasy as all get out but surprisingly enough my hair looked healthy and clean, just as if i used regular liquid shampoo.

 Now day two.... Not as satisfied as I was the previous day. My hair doesnt LOOK greasy but it sure feels heavy, greasy, overall just not very clean. In the mirror itdoesn't  look real bad but the texture isn't  what I like that's for sure. 

 I have read that your hair can go through a transitional faze when switching from a regular store brand to a bar without the sulfates and other additives. I am not 100% on this but maybe that's what my hair is starting to go through.....? I will just have to keep going and time will tell.

  Day 3: Today I decided to rub the bar along my hairline and then on top of my head instead of lathering it in my hands first then applying to my hair. It seemed to work a lot better this way. After working it in I let it sit for a bit. This time rinsed what seemed to be longer than the previous mornings. My hair still doesn't look greasy and it feels better than it did yesterday, but I still feel a small "uncleanliness"in the back, only way I can describe it. I think I will give this bar about a week to get the hang of it. My hair doesn't look as frizzy as normal so I like that.

It is now May 5th and I am still using the boom bar. I have been loving this the more I use it. My hair no longer has the weird texture and feels great! I have been using a little conditioner on my ends. I love how I wake up in the morning and my hair isnt geasy at all. I have struggled with oily hair for years! Well, no more :)

October Nail Challenge

Alright, it will be October tomorrow and as promised here is a glance at our nail art challenge for the month. Are you ready? I can't wait to see what others come up with, so remember to share what you did! (links to facebook, instagram etc.. or just add the picture in the comments below)

     I did not come up with this I came across it  when I googled and searched under photos. I liked this one because it wasn't an every day thing. I didn't think I wanted to try changing my nail polish every day for 31 days. Have fun with this, see you tomorrow for day one!
 I find I have more readers on wordpress so you will find these HERE .

My First Influenster box

    I got my very first voxbox from Influenster this last past week. I  was so excited to be selected to try something out. The best part, it was FREE!To be selected for a voxbox you have to active on the website. Influenster will send you surveys via email to qualify for their voxboxes. I had previously done some surveys and  hadn't been chosen for the boxes so this time around when I was sent the survey I wasn't sure I even wanted to do it. I thought "why bother I wont get it" I am so glad I took that survey! a few weeks later I received another email from influenster saying "Congratulation you have been selected"! I was so excited I couldn't wait to get the box, I kept checking the tracking number to see if it was any closer to arriving.

                                                       Here it is, the SlimSoft voxbox!

                     I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

   In this box I got one Colgate slimsoft toothbrush. This brush  has gliding tips that are 17x slimmer bristles than other brushes that are meant for a deeper clean. So it says on the package. I honestly have not tried this toothbrush out yet. I just bout a new toothbrush right before I knew I was selected for this voxbox. I am not the type of person to just throw out perfectly good/new items. However I can not wait to open this puppy and use it. It looks so soft and I have read some good reviews on influenster from other people who HAVE used it already.

        The other two items  in this package were samples of the total advanced whitening toothpaste and the total pro-sheild mouthwash. The I have used and love! The toothpaste  claims  to help remove and prevent stains, cavities,gingivitis, plaques, tartar etc. basically everything you read on every other brand of toothpaste. Now I don't know if it really does all that but I do know that I like the way my teeth feel after using it. You know that CLEAN feeling you get after brushing, who doesn't like that feeling? After using the mouthwash I know I will be purchasing this product because I liked how the mouthwash didn't burn my gums while using it and the peppermint flavor wasn't over powering and really did leave my breath smelling fresh.


Update (two hours later):

     I wasn't going to open it yet because the toothbrush I have was recently purchased so I wasn't ready for a new one yet. However I couldn't write a review without testing it out. I popped that baby out and I'm glad I did! It is so soft, it felt great on my gums. I also love how thin the top is I can actually get my back teeth with out opening my mouth in awkward ways just to get it back there. I will be using my previous toothbrush to  clean the cracks around the house.

Up and Coming Challenge

    I have seen over the past year or so many challenges for the beauty world. I had decided on giving it a try myself. Once I decided that I would be going with nail polish/art I had to chose what month, how many days, weeks or months long to make. I ended up going with the Halloween theme and oh man is October fast approaching. I had hoped by the time it came around to doing the challenge that I would have me followers to be active in sharing what they came up with. I will NOT let this stop me however, as I do love o paint my nails. It is the main "girly" thing I like to do. If your interested me follow, share and feel welcome to comment. I will be back on the first to share!

Too Early


      I am thinking I should go back to bed and try again in a couple of hour. I get up this morning as usual and go fill the coffee pot up,so I think. I go wake up the kids as the pot is brewing and when I go to grab a cup of my delicious coffee I find  HOT WATER! Oh my I completely forgot to add the coffee. That can not be a good sign of how my day is going to go. Please tell me someone else out there has done this before?

Nail of The Day

update: 9/19   just noticed the price has been knocked down on these!!!

I have seen all those fingernail stick on polish’s and have wanted to try them out. However, paying $10 for a one time use just didn’t seem worth it.
     Well one day as I was scrolling along on ebay I came across some for $3.99. Not only did they look similar to the sally hansen and essie brands but hey the cost was way less! I didn't buy them right away because i still wasn't sure if id like them. After about a weeks worth of consideration I decided to order some.
   Yesterday I was so excited to get them in the mail! I love them so far. They have bling! The greenish colored stones do stick out so hey, I match my bling cell phone case :)
  The process was so much faster and easier than painting my nails with polish and waiting hours for it to completely dry. Why hadn’t I tried this concept out sooner? Oh ya right, the price! Glad I found some cheap ones. Anywho, all you do is clean your nails really well, match the size of the sticker to your nails and press them on. Then bend whats left hanging off your nail over the tip of your nail and file off, its that simple. Now the true test is….will they last a long time before chipping or pealing off? Guess ill check back in, in a few days to let you know. If you have used sally, essie or any other brand of nail stickers let me know how you liked or disliked them.

for real its free?

      Have you ever heard of a site were you can get things for free? I'm not talking about all those freebie sample sites. Its more like  an ebay style site were people post their unwanted items, kind of like craigslist only you bid on stuff and a lot of times its free shipping. I just found out about this site this morning. You can check it out by clicking HERE its called listia. If you have tried is what would you say you like and/or dislike about it?
