Birthday Buys

Last weekend, I celebrated my birthday by doing all of the things that I love: spending time with my wonderful family, cutting up with my besties, and shopping for goodies for my hair. I know---I'm a dweeb and ridiculously easily satisfied (This is a #judgementfreezone though!) Nonetheless, I had a great time. Here's few of the cool things that I picked up:

Birthday Buys
  1. Carol's Daughter Coconut Shuffle- I received this body cream free with a $25 CD purchase at my exchange. Perfect for softening rough elbows and knees after a dry winter.
  2. Carol's Daughter Hair Milk (Original) Leave-in- I fell in love with the Hair Milk Conditioner when I started using it on my little ones' hair a few months ago. I think (please tell me if I am wrong), since then that conditioner was discontinued, so I picked up the Hair Milk Original Leave-In. I hope that it works just as well.
  3. Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Conditioner- I only bought this one to get to the $25 limit and get a free gift. Ha-ha! #judgementfreezone! I've never been a big fan of CD for my own hair, but one of you could win this in our first giveaway in a few weeks. Stay tuned!
  4. Nexxus Hydra-Light Conditioner- Y'all know that I've wanted to try this since January. I just refused to pay full price though. When I saw that my commissary finally had it for less than $9 and I had a coupon for $1 off, I had to buy it and I can not wait to try it!
  5. Nexxus Hydra-Light Foaming Leave In- After Keyda's review of the conditioner and reading up on the ingredients in this leave in, I thought to myself: either Hydra Light sucks or its amazing but there is nothing in between. Let's hope for the latter!  Castor oil, glycerin and coconut oil in a conditioning foam? Is it too good to be true?  I'll see in a few weeks!
  6. I love snagging a good deal!
  7. Hair accessories- May begins our 30 in 30 series where we plan to feature a new protective style each daily. It's definitely going to be a challenge but you guys keep us honest and truly motivated. Flashy accessories make updos, braids, and twists so much more fun! The silver cuff is a pony holder. (Think Madonna 90s Blonde Ambition sky high pony.) The pink band is a jeweled headband. (Think chic boho pin up) 
Have you tried any of my recent buys? Share your thoughts below!

Un mil besitos


  1. I'm interested in how you use this silver cuff lol... Looking forward to your reviews as usual

    1. I'm going to use the silver cuff to jazz up a sky high pony. I think that it would be super cute has a holder for low pony too.

  2. You made some great buys, missy! I bought the Carol's Daughter Monoi reparing gift set for one of my friend for Christmas. She has natural hair, and she LOVED it. I have not tried it myself but hope to eventually. I'm looking forward to your reviews as well. :)

    1. I've heard sooo much about this Monoi line and I think that I've bought into the hype a little. Problem is: I've tried a few CD products and I just wasn't impressed. *le sigh* Maybe my expectations were too high. But I'll give it another go!


We'd love to hear from you! Leave a note!
