After spending most of last week battling an acute case of bronchitis, I decided to take a week off from the blog and rest. Although I still have a pesky cough that I will probably have for a couple of weeks, there’s still plenty of summer left. This summer, when it came to my hair, I went very laid back by wearing my hair mostly naturally curly. I didn’t apply much if any heat to my hair these past couple of months. Therefore, I used this summer to experience with different products, mostly styling products for my curly hair.
From refresher sprays to curling cremes, I tried a lot of styling products for my curly hair. However, there were only a few that I used continuously this summer. Keep reading to see which products had me loving my natural curls this summer.
I’m a product girl. I love trying and experimenting with different products from different brands. Doing this has helped me find brands and products I couldn’t imagine not using. However, this process has also led me to products some of the worst beauty products I’ve ever tried. Don’t get me wrong, these products are necessarily horrible, but the didn’t work for me.
Interested in in why I would never use these products again, then keep reading.
Over the past few years, I’ve been learning how to properly take care of my natural nails. Up until I was 24 years old, I was an avid nail biter. My dad bites his nail, which caused me and my brother to bite ours. However, unlike them, I was able to eventually stop. Take it, it took me a couple of decades, but I did it. Ever since I stopped, I’ve always looked for ways to maintain healthy nails. The first step is knowing everyday nail care is a thing.
To maintain my nails, there are some things that I do everyday to my nails. I believe that these little things attribute to my nails staying strong and healthy.
Despite the record heat, I’ve really enjoyed playing and wearing makeup this summer. I was getting so annoyed looking at all of my makeup being wasted by me not wearing it. I will admit that, for the most part, I was really focusing on my skincare. However, my makeup and I are getting close again and I even carry some of it with me everyday. It’s a great time to do a makeup bag spill and show all the makeup products that I’ve been keeping in my makeup bag this summer.

For the past few months, I’ve been very diligent about not spending money on makeup, because I have enough. Even after I ran out of my holy grail, kind pricey MUFE foundation, I resisted the urge to replenish my stash. Instead, I pulled out all of my foundation and wore those instead. Thankfully, the current foundations I’ve been using are staple ones.
I’ve been saving money and space with these foundations, which is great. Keep reading to see the current foundations I have in rotation.
