NeoCell Beauty Bursts Choc Chews and Keratin Hair Volumizer Supplement Review + GIVEAWAY

See How you Can Win this Hair Volumizer at the bottom of this post! 

It can be frustrating when you have thin hair or even worse, when you can't grow it out because. Luckily I've always had pretty thick hair but it always stopped growing a little past my shoulders and never got longer. That is until I started using supplements for hair growth. There are some amazing hair growth supplements out there that really do work. I'm proof, My hair is now past the middle of my back! It's never been that long in my life, but it's solely because I take a hair volumizing supplement.

I recently got to try out NeoCell's Keratin Hair Volumizer supplement.  This awesome supplement uses clinically proven ingredients that improve hair strength, enhance hair volume, and also increase shine. Just take 2 capsules a day and this all-natural, nutraceutical solution will give you longer, thicker, stronger, more lustrous, and healthy hair. 

My hair is on the dry side, and it tends to be very brittle and has a lot of damage. I also have a lot of breakage and a ton of split ends. I try to lay off the heated styling tools as much as possible but I've aways struggled with unhealthy hair. What I loved about this product is that not only does it give you thicker, longer hair, but you will notice a difference in the health of your hair. Your hair will be shinier, stronger, and much less brittle and dry.

The NeoCell Keratin hair volumizer uses proven, effective ingredients such as Cynatine HNS Solubized Keratin, Hydrolyzed Super Collagen, Amia Extract, and Vitamin C. These ingredients work together to give the hair extra strength, shine, and an overall healthier appearance.

When I got my NeoCell Keratin Hair Volumizer, I started taking the supplements right away. Over the last month, you can bet I've noticed a difference.

Where I first noticed a difference was hair growth. While it's hard to notice a difference in the length of your hair that soon, I noticed on my body. I had laser hair removal done a few years back but it still requires a few touch ups here and there. I recently noticed some leg hair coming in, more than normal. At first I was a bit annoyed but then I realized my Necoll hair volumizer was working. I also had a complete misfortunate eyebrow waxing incident during my NeoCell trial (don't ask) and luckily for me, it seemed to help my eyebrow grow in much quicker.

Don't worry, you're not going to get a furry Chewbaca body just in time for Halloween, but you will notice a difference in hair growth. You may just have to be a little more diligent about shaving and waxing while using this product, but trust me, the results are worth it.

After the last month, My hair has felt so much shinier, healthier, and stronger. I have a lot of hair so it's constantly coming out in gobs, especially in the shower, but I've noticed that has diminished significantly over the last month. I've also noticed there hasn't been as much breakage around my scalp or the ends of my hair.

My hair has also felt incredibly smoother and softer and I've had less tangles, which is a huge feat for me! I feel like this product is working a little miracle on my scalp and giving my hair the love and attention its always needed! 

Along with my hair volumizing supplement, I also got to try out NeoCell's Beauty Bursts Gourmet Collagen Soft Chews.

These chews contain 2000 milligrams of collagen,  designed to help rebuild and repair skin, as well as hyaluronic acid, which is an amazing moisturizing ingredient, and Vitamin C, which we all know is great for the body, and it also helps enhance collagen. 

The chews contain no gluten, soy, palm oil, or articial colors or sweeteners. I chose the fresh mint chocolate chews and absolutely loved the taste. They make a good treat as well as do some amazing things for your skin at the same time! These beauty bursts deliver high absorption of beauty nutrients that give you more youthful, radiant, and beautiful skin! These chews also make your skin and hair healthier too! 

I have loved using these chews and feel like my skin has felt softer, smoother, and looks more radiant. It has also seemed more moisturized as well. I naturally have dry skin and usually have to pile on the creams but it seems like I've not needed them as much over the last month while taking my NeoCell chews. I also have noticed my nails have been less brittle since taking the chews and Keratin Hair Volumizer supplement as well.

I've absolutely loved using these products. Just check out my skin and hair here! I'm very pleased with the results I've gotten from using these amazing products. My skin and hair overall look and feel so much healthier. I couldn't be happier! In fact, In Style Magazine has been raving about some of their products, and the Keratin Hair Volumizing supplement I tried here, just recently won the Best New Beauty and Spa Product at the NEOP Europe! It was also the Vanity Fair Beauty Blog Top Choice for beauty product!

If you would like to learn more about the NeoCell brand and try out some of their amazing supplements for yourself, be sure to check them out today at They also have topical products if you would rather try a serum or moisturizer! You can purchase their products at your nearest CVS, Walgreens, or The Vitamin Shoppe.

No More Panic When Your Phone is About to Die: Lumsing 10400mAh PowerBank Portable Charger Review

I've recently written about Lumsing and their amazing PowerBank Portable Chargers, and that's because I'm obsessed with these little life savers  (See my review on the Lumsing Portable Sleek Powerbank Here).

When I say It's a lifesaver, I completely mean it. How many of us feel completely naked or even anxious and stressed when we realize we've left our phone at home or we look down to see that we only have enough charge to last for about ten more minutes?

I've unfortunately put myself in this situation one too many times, and it feels like an extension of me is missing. I really do feel my heart beat faster, my body tense up, and my stress level rise as soon as I realize my phone is about to die and I'm no where near my charger or an outlet! 

It's insane to think that we've become a generation so obsessed with our phones that it really puts a lot of us into instant stress mode when we realize we may not be able to use if it we need it! But that's just the way our lifestyles have become, at least for most of us. With smart phone capabilities, we are able to do EVERYTHING from our phone now, so when the battery is about to die, it really does put a lot of us into an instant panic!

Well like any good preparedness plan, why is battery back up not at the very top of most of our lists yet? I know it hasn't been for me, mainly because I didn't even know battery backups existed, but they do! Now that I know this, I keep my Lumsing portable charger charged and with me at all times. This way, if I notice my phone is almost dead, I just plug my Lumsing into it, and ta da! My phone is charged and ready to use!

I recently got to try the 10400mAh Portable Charger from Lumsing (shown here). And have absolutely loved it! It is super easy to use, light weight and portable, not to mention it looks fabulous too, and most importantly, it puts your mind at complete ease! Keep it charged, then when you need it, you just plug it into your smart phone, tablet, or mp3 player, and you will get instant charging! 

I used it on my iPod as soon as I got it, just because I hadn't tried that out with my Lumsing yet. It charged it in full within a couple of hours, and my Lumsing still had enough juice to charge up my iPhone and tablet as well. 

With this awesome device, you can usually charge 4-5 devices with it in a single charge. (You can get more charges out of a smart phone, but for bigger devices like a tablet, you will be able to get about 2 charges out of this). You just plug your Lumsing in and let it charge for most of the day. Take it with you, and you will be able to charge 4 or 5 of your devices on the go, when your phone or tablet battery is about to die.

Once your Lumsing runs out of juice, just charge it again, and then it's ready to go once again for when any of your devices need to be recharged.

Also what is really impressive, is that you can get over 500 charges from your Lumsing over the life of it's battery! That is absolutely amazing to me! It also comes with this nice carrying case to keep it safe and clean, and keeps your cord with it, so you have it when you need to charge your phone.

If you would like to learn more about the Lumsing 10400mah PowerBank portable charger, or pick one up for yourself, then be sure to check them out HERE on Amazon. Regularly $59, you can pick it up right now on SALE for only $19! 

ALSO, right now you can win this Lumsing Powerbank for yourself! Like them on Facebook, follow Lumsing on Twitter,  and enter their GIVEAWAY HERE.

A Much Easier Way to Detox the Body and Rid Yourself of those Nasty Toxins!

Although I mainly write about fashion and beauty, I'm hugely passionate about health and fitness, and have been for over a decade. I believe that diet and exercise is important, but there are things we can do to help aid weight loss as well.

I have always been very against diet pills and I don't ever buy into new fad diets. I never have. I have just educated myself on eating healthy, as well as cutting out animal products out of my diet. I did this mostly from a humane perspective, but also because when I read more into it, I found that a plant based diet is actually so much healthier AND you can still get plenty of protein without eating meat, contrary to popular belief.

Upon changing my diet up about 4 years ago, by cutting out meat, I have become more open to weight loss aids. I've found there are great supplements out there that can aid in weight loss. I've also only recently started learning more about detoxes.

When I first heard about food detoxes, I was beyond skeptical. To me it was silly. As soon as you go back to normal food a week later, you will put that weight back on. duh! But what I didn't realize is that the detox helps you lose some weight sure, but it's done to help cleanse the body. Believe it or not, it really does serve the body a good purpose.

As I started researching more into detoxes just this last year, I found notable and credible documentaries, articles, and books on how the body actually does need a good detox every so often. The reason is, our American diets are horrible. Most of us eat a TON of processed foods and are even regulars at fast food joints.These foods are so unhealthy. We already knew that, but what I didn't realize, is that they contain a lot of toxins (especially processed foods) that build up in our systems for years and years, and its wreaking havoc on our bodies and making it so we are completely unable to shed those last 10 pounds, no matter what we do!

With this information in mind, I decided it was time to try a detox. I did my first one this May, and what I found was astonishing, I lost about 6 pounds in one week, sure (I have gained it back, because I was already at my ideal weight) but my body felt so much better, I had so much more energy. And the biggest difference I noticed, sorry I have to take it here, but I was much more regular. I've always struggled with this my whole life and in one week, the difference was amazing. I realized that my body must have really needed a detox!

Detoxes can be hard to endure for a whole week. It's hard to deprive the body of most foods, and some detoxes require only juices or smoothies. I actually did eat some whole foods in mine, but the meal plan was very strict. I've been meaning to do another one but it's hard to get motivated to do one.

This is wear TruSol Colon Detox comes into play. For those of us who really struggle with a food detox, because lets face it, it's really hard to do! This is a great alternative that can provide your body with the same benefits.

I got to try out this product for a week and I was surprised to see that I received some of the very benefits from using this product as I did while going through a 7 day food detox. I had more energy, my body felt better, and just like the name, my colon was getting a good cleansing! I was much more regular once again (Again, sorry!)

Like a food detox, TruSol Colon Detox should only be used for a week at a time, but you WILL notice some health benefits from using it. I felt better. I was also more motivated to eat a little better too during the week since I knew this supplement was working hard to give my body a good cleanse, I didn't want to weigh it down any more than I had already.

Stuff builds up in our bodies all the time! Unhealthy food is continually adding some nasty toxins that sit in the digestive tract and these toxins build up and sit there for years! It's important to be giving our body a good cleanse to keep it running smoothly and feeling it's very best.

If you find it hard to do a food cleanse for a week, then this is the product for you! You will get the same benefits without having to have the motivation to extremely restrict your diet for a whole week. Your body will be healthier and you may very well lose some weight in the process as your body rids itself of those toxins that have built a home in your body!

If you would like to learn more about  TruSol Colon Detox, you can find and purchase them on Amazon. Get a 60 capsule bottle for only $18! Also be sure to check out other customers reviews while you are there, and see what everyone else is saying about this amazing product too!

Happy Cleansing!

How to Get the Rodarte-Inspired Messy Braid

All photos and text are free to use with a proper credit and link back given to guest contributor Steph Brinkerhoff.Other photo tutorials & hair tips available upon request. Happy sharing!
"It’s a lot easier to recreate than you think," explains guest contributor Steph Brinkerhoff. "It’s best to start on wavy or second-day hair to give the look added texture. It also doesn’t hurt to spray a little hairspray or spray wax in it beforehand to add a little grip and grunge. Here’s how to get the look…"

1. Beginning on wavy hair, take a medium to large section (depending on how thick your hair is) close to your right ear.

2. Braid the section going from the front to the back.

3. Repeat on the opposite side.

4. Bring both braids to the back and secure them with an elastic.

5. Loosen and mess up both braids by pulling on them gently with your fingers.

6. Take one braid and wrap it up and around itself, creating a small braided bun. 

7. Secure with bobby pins.

Adfilic Bluetooth Portable Stereo Wireless Speaker Review + GIVEAWAY

Although I don't often write a lot about technology, truth is technology has become so advanced, we all use a lot of it, including our grandmothers. Being a blogger of any type of niche, it's hard to not stick some technology posts in there somewhere. Technology is incredibly thrilling to a lot of us. New wonderful products are always flooding the market, each making life so much easier, more comfortable, enjoyable, and are often also saving us more time as well!

ENTER TO WIN this bluetooth speaker for yourself at the bottom of this post! 

I'm a huge fan of music, in fact I dare say long with fashion, and animals, it's one of my biggest passions in life. Even as a a very young girl I remember borrowing my older brothers' cassette tapes to listen to their music (yes I just completely gave away my age there). When CD's hit the market when I was in high school, I remember thinking the way we listened to music would be changed before. But CD's were just the beginning (and are all but obsolete now). Then came MP3's, with that iPods and portable music playing devices (well at least not the horrible bulky walkman or CD player anymore). 

Now in the last few years, bluetooth speakers have hit the market. Paired with your smart phone, MP3 player, tablet, computer, or anything with bluetooth capabilities, listening to music could not get any easier.

I recently got to review this adorable little blue portable, wireless, bluetooth speaker by Adfilic. First off when I got it, I was already in love with the color. This is one of my favorite shades of blue! (If you aren't a fan of blue, you can also pick this up in black!)

I love the size, it makes it so easy for packing it around everywhere, especially if you travel for work and want some extra great sound while watching a movie on your laptop. (This baby fits right in your hand!)  I personally stuck mine in the bathroom and used it every morning while getting ready for the day. The size is great for not taking up much room on the bathroom counter, and the volume you get out of this bluetooth speaker is perfect for a large bathroom or room. (But please note that I do like my music loud, and others may find the volume level perfect for anywhere in the house).

I love the ease of turning my music on, on my iPhone, then just simply turning my Adfilic bluetooth speaker to ON, selecting the Bluetooth mode, and voila! My favorite music is playing! You also have the option to use AUX input, and the speaker comes with an auxiliary wire, so you can plug your phone in to if if you rather.

I used my speaker for the last few weeks and the battery power is amazing on it. I accidentally left the power button on all day one day, so I did have to recharge it that night. If you use it for an hour or two a day like I do, you can use it for about a week before you need to recharge the battery. Recharging is also extremely simple. The speaker comes with a USB wire, you just plug into your computer or a USB outlet if you happen to have one of those plugged into your wall.

While all of this stuff is wonderful to hear about, it's time to get to the most important part. The sound! I'm extremely picky about speakers, I have been my whole life. I refuse to drive a car that doesn't have an amp and a subwoofer. I've been this way ever since I could drive. In my home, I require the best surround sound possible, and if I'm buying anything to do with music, I'm making sure it's top quality. I'm completely bugged when music isn't crystal clear and has no bass.

I've tried a few portable bluetooth speakers, usually much bigger then this, and when I turned this baby on and tried it out for the first time, I was extremely impressed. The high quality sound coming out of such a little (and very inexpensive) bluetooth speaker is absolutely AMAZING! The sound is indeed crystal clear. I can sing along to songs and actually get the words right because I can hear them perfectly. (Yeah I'm that person that sings along to everything, and before sound quality increased so significantly in speakers over the last few years, I was constantly singing the wrong words). Well you won't have to worry about that with this fabulous bluetooth speaker. You can hear the words perfectly, and the bass! Oh the bass! I played some Drake when I first got it and the bass, especially heavy bass in hip hop, sounds wonderful on this speaker!) I also played a range of rock, pop, alternative, and some dance while trying out this speaker, and ALL varieties of music sound great on this portable bluetooth speaker.

The only drawback I have with this speaker is I wish it was a bit louder, but like I said, I like my music loud. Actually really loud. I'm also that annoying neighbor driving down the street with the bass thumping. But honestly for the size of this speaker, it actually puts out a lot of volume. Most people would probably not need more volume then what you can get from this innovative bluetooth speaker.

Also, this speaker also has built-in speakerphone and microphone for incoming calls, when you happen to be listening to music or it streaming from your phone. I actually didn't get to try out a call while using it, in fact I didn't even realize it did that until just now when I read that on their site. What an amazing feature I had no idea you could even get on a bluetooth speaker, especially one this small and portable!

Overall, I've been absolutely loving this wireless bluetooth speaker and have been using it nearly every day since it arrived! I love that because of it's small size, it sits on my bathroom counter and takes up virtually no space. I love the ease of turning my music on, on my phone and just having to hit the ON button on the bluetooth speaker, and just like that! I've got music! I couldn't be happier with the sound quality you get out of this speaker, especially the bass!

I'm wondering how I ever lived without this speaker before! I know you will too, and for only $24 on Amazon, you absolutely can't go wrong with purchasing one for yourself! Even if you're not a big music fan, this is great for adding better sound to your laptop when watching a movie!

If you would like to learn more about the Adfilic Portable, wireless, bluetooth speaker, or buy one for yourself, you can purchase them HERE on AMAZON Right now for only $24!

ALSO, the lovely people of Adfilic are letting me GIVEAWAY one of these amazing portable bluetooth speakers to one of my wonderful readers!
