May Favorites

June 4, 2017

Hi guys!

I am not going to start by saying how quickly May went by, nope won't do it, instead I will share some of my May favorites, all under 20 bucks!!

1) Hair Mask
So, Ive done A LOT to my hair, color, keratin treatment, hot tools, you name it, I've put my hair through it.  So I am always looking for products that are gentle and can get my hair to where it use to be before all of the abuse.  I've cut out any hair straightening tools, its so damaging and it leaves my hair starved that has helped but I need a lot more help to undo years of damage.  I did some research and decided to try ArtNaturals Argan Oil Hair Mask after reading a few glowing reviews.  It isn't a leave in conditioner, its a mask that you apply generously to your hair after shampoo.  I start at the ends and work my way up to the scalp, leave on for ten minutes and then rinse it out throughly.  It smells delicious and it really has made a noticeable difference.  I have also decided to wash and condition my hair only once a week, I know a lot of women have oily hair and it is nearly impossible to last that long without a wash, but my hair has adapted to my new routine and I am loving the results.  Highly recommend it if you are looking for soft, shiny and manageable hair.

2) Skin Care
OMG, I happened to pick up a bottle of this skin care magic when I was in my Walgreen's picking up allergy meds for my youngest.  The bottle was on clearance for like $5 and I said to myself what the heck, live a little.  So what am I talking about?  It is this little Moroccan Argan Oil that can be used on your skin, hair and nail cuticles.  It is AMAZING! Ive completely replaced by Cetaphil lotion with this oil, every morning and every night.  I have pretty clear skin, but sometimes its dull, dry and blotchy depending on the season, this oil has been a total game changer for me.  It really just makes my skin glow and it allows for foundation and concealer to be applied with ease.  What is better for makeup than a bright, smooth canvas? Seriously, this is the best $12 you will spend on skin care.  In between hair washes, I dabbed just a dime size into the palm of my hand and apply to my ends to give it some shine.  A little goes a long way.

3) Pink Suede Slides
I actually added these to my shoe collection in April, but I have been wearing them every chance I get, on repeat all through May.  They are super comfy and versatile.  I've paired them with dresses, skirts and jeans.  They come in three colors (Ive got the pink) and they are under $20!!!!! Check em out, you are going to love them.

4) Rocksbox
Don't you love getting mail? When Rocksbox reached out and asked to work with me, I said YES, without hesitation!  Not only are they a reputable company but their business model is kind of awesome.  Here is how it works, you create an account and pick up to 30 pieces that you love and within a week of signing up you get three pieces to wear.  Now, you can wear them as long as you want and return them for your next three picks or you can buy them at a discounted price using the monthly subscription cost ($21).  This is perfect for someone like me, I tend to get bored of accessories, especially the more trendier pieces so holding on to them would only take up space that I don't have, being able to style a few pieces and send them back for new pieces is the perfect solution.  I styled some items here and just sent them back on Friday.  Best part? I have a code you can use to get your first month FREE, no obligation to continue, cancel whenever you want.  Just click here and use my promo code "lifestyledbyericaxoxo" at checkout.

In other news, I have a new feature on my blog, its called "Erica's Under $20 Picks". Currently I have linked some of the products I talked about in this post, a white lace skirt that I am considering and the book I am currently reading, The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood.  I am about 100 pages in and I am loving it.  I think I will work on a summer reading list for my next post.  Any suggestions?  Leave titles in the comments below.

Thanks for reading loves! XOXO

Until next time..💋
