I am constantly overdoing it with all things beauty. Being a beauty blogger, I am constantly putting products to the test. While a lot of people think I am lucky, my skin and hair don't necessarily agree. I recently had to cut back on a lot of the harsh skin care products and engage in a more simple skin care routine; I also did the same for my hair care. The constant testing of hair care products, tools and treatments left my hair looking overprocessed, lifeless and limp. That's when I turned to a more simple hair care routine with hair care products that I have long believed in and those products are from Nexxus.Read More

The spring and summer seasons are such a busy time of year. For me, these next few months are busier than ever! There are so many events like Mother's Day, graduations, weddings, bridal showers, baby showers and milestone birthday parties to attend. I literally have every weekend booked through mid July! These are all big events that I need to plan for. I always seem to have a busy time of year like this and it stresses me out. I decided that I need to stop worrying about what I am wearing and put together a few key looks. This way, I can have fun, enjoy these events and make memories with my friends, family and loved ones and not stress.
This year, I am putting together little event looks by buying the right key pieces — dresses, shoes, jewelry, bags even planning the hair looks and makeup so I am prepared. I am going with a classy theme, so I can mix and match everything; I only need a few key pieces which saves me a lot of money.
We are seeing a lot of color this year, but when you are keeping it to just a few pieces, you can't go out and buy a pink dress and wear it five times without people noticing. This is why I invest in basic colored items, like a white, nude and black dress and accent it with gold jewelry and a bright bag or shoes for day; for night it is always black.
For makeup, I concentrate on beautiful skin both day and night. That means, flawless foundation, with a little bronzer and blush just on the apples of my cheeks. On my eyes, I keep it more natural during the day with a pop of color on my lips. At night, I am all about the smoky eye with a ton of mascara. I actually keep my favorite nighttime mascara, nude lipstick and gloss in a little makeup bag for my clutch at the ready because I know this will be coming with me every weekend.
For my hair, I wear it down for daytime events and in an updo for nighttime events. Pinterest is such a great source of inspiration for updo's and I print them out and have photos by my vanity. Having my hair in it's best condition so it is smooth, frizz-free and manageable is key. I have been using Nexxus Oil Infinite system.
Nexxus Oil Infinite system is a two part system that contains a Rebalancing Shampoo and Restoring Conditioner. Specifically formulated using concentrated, 100% pure Elastin Protein and natural Babassu and Marula Oils, this Oil Infinite regimen works to renew hair texture and restore smooth, sleek, fluid beauty.
I'm thrilled that my hair is frizz-free, smooth and manageable and looks perfect for all of my events. The Rebalancing Shampoo does a great job at cleansing my hair and never makes it feel overly dry. It is silicone-free which is a plus. The blend of oils in the Restoring Conditioner really help make my hair smooth without weighing it down.
"Nexxus Oil Infinite system smells so good and makes my hair super shiny!"
Do you have a lot of events this spring and summer? What do you do to be prepared?
Today's post was sponsored by Lunchbox and Nexxus. As always, all opinions are my own.
I know I feel better about myself when I am having a good hair day and everyone wants beautiful hair like the hair we always see in reviews. Well, that type of hair takes work and the right hair products. Think about it. Is your hair dry, damaged or dull? There are systems for each of these conditions to ensure that hair is beautiful. I often turn to Nexxus and I have been using products from their Replenishing System including the Therappe Shampoo and Humectress Conditioner to have endless good hair days.
Nexxus Therappe Replenishing System Shampoo is a silicone-free shampoo that doesn't weigh my hair down so my hair is bouncy and full of volume. Therappe Shampoo is formulated with a concentrated, 100% pure Elastin Protein and a precious Caviar Complex. It lathers up to deeply to cleanse my hair but not strip it which is so important to colored hair
Nexxus Humectress Replenishing System Conditioner uses the same pure Elastin Protein and Caviar Complex to not only nourish the hair but protect and rebalance it. It does so by re-building broken bonds of the hair. It leaves my hair so smooth and soft, but not too soft where it can be styled or manageable.
The final step in the Nexxus Replenishing System is the Humectress Luxe Lightweight Conditioning Mist. This weightless conditioning mist is vital to the process as it locks in shine and aids in manageability. I swear it adds a bit of bulk to my hair to help me style better too.
I love the way my hair felt after using the Nexxus Replenishing System. Not only was my hair fresh and full of volume for days, I had healthier, hydrated hair after just one use.
Hair was fresh and full of volume for days... I just love the way my hair looks and feels after using.
The products smell really good and a little goes a long way. I love that I don't have to use a ton of product for them to be effective either. I use about a quarter size amount of the Nexxus Therappe Shampoo, a half dollar size amount of the Nexxus Humectress Conditioner and just three or four sprays of the Humectress Luxe Lightweight Conditioning Mist. I just love the way my hair looks and feels after using.
