I do have to say, that after I cleaned my face and applied the day lotion, my face felt so clean and silky. In fact, it was a lot easier for me to apply my makeup, with a much smoother canvas.

Five things you probably didn’t know about me!

The digital world makes it harder for people to get to know you better. That’s why today, I wanted to share five things you probably didn’t know about me. 1.I’m a singer! – Yes, ever since I was ten years old, I would sing my lungs out to Celine Dion and had high hopes of pursuing it as a career. Now, I’m blogging, and I couldn’t be happier…….but, if Usher or The Bieb’s asked to sign me as an artist, I’d be down. 😉 2.I’m CPR Certified – I’ve recently got my CPR Certifiation, and it’s probably the best thing I’ve done this year. My boyfriend Matthew was an EMT before, and he talked about the importance of knowing how to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It is a valuable skill to know in case you ever do need to help someone. People, you are safe with me 😉 3.I love History- Something I’ve always been fascinated about was learning everything about the world before us. Anything from Alexander the Great, Columbus, Julius Caesar and Albert Einstein, …

Schwarzkopf Review

People always ask, “Dawn, what type of hair products do you use?” Well, I’m very lucky because I have a sister that’s a hairstylists. 😉 She’s always telling me about all the latest and greatest hair products on the market. Today I wanted to share some of my current favorite products from Schwarzkopf. I teamed up with Schwarzkopf to talk about three of my favorite products. I’ll list all of the products down below with comments telling you why I LOVE these items. Number one has to be Schwarzkopf’s Biotin + Volume. For the longest time, I’ve searched for the perfect product that would give me that extra volume. I’ve tried hairsprays and other texturizing products, but none seem to do the work. After trying the Biotin + Volume, I was in complete shock! This stuff works!! Now I can look like those hair models on Vogue Magazine 😉 How to use it: Lift hair and sprinkle onto the scalp in sections. Just like the dry shampoo, just work in the powder into the roots for instant volume. …
