HASK Chia Seed Oil Volumizing Collection

*Powered by Brandbacker*

I think the first time I've heard of chia seeds is from a Dr.Oz episode. He mentioned how this is a great superfood. Superfoods are foods that are nutrient powerhouses. They're fully packed of nutrients, vitamins and minerals, and chia seeds are fortified with proteins, antioxidants, calcium and nutrients like Omega-3 fatty acids. 
I hate taking vitamin supplements, and since these were tasteless, I easily just add these seeds to my oatmeal or sandwich or make a yummy chocolate pudding with it. A few years back, I had put myself on a strict diet (not now, not anymore), and I read how this will help with weight loss as well. It helps you to feel full, eat less and shed pounds! I still am adding this to my oatmeal or any meals I have but not as often as I did before. I do like how this keeps me full so I'm not craving for an unhealthy snack mid-day.
Besides the great health benefits chia seeds have, I was very excited when I found out one of my favorite drugstore haircare brands, HASK has incorporated it to their new haircare collection,

HOURGLASS Ambient Edit Palette

Every year, every month, days and every second there are always new makeup products coming out! I surely can't keep up with all of them. I don't follow trends but if it's a very raved product from all the beauty bloggers and beauty editors, I start looking more into it, and see if I really WANT it. I don't just want to buy it for blogging purposes but will I be really using it a lot? 
In the case of this product, I know I love the brand already, and it's very raved about, and so
during the SephoraVIB 20% Off Event, I treated myself to this beauty.

BEYOND at Liberty View

*This post is in partnership with Bed Bath & Beyond.* 

My trips to Bed Bath & Beyond (BBB) are the kind of trips, I come in with a list and come out with more than what's on the list. Yes, I do need that cherry pitter and that "Coffee before talkie" mug, and those laundry drying balls, and oh yeah more straws besides the blankets from my list. And so, when another BBB in Brooklyn opened which was closer to us, I couldn't wait to check it out! I had no idea
BEYOND at Liberty View
will be so huge, and offered more than one store!

Lee Stafford CHoPstick STYLER + GIVEAWAY!!!

When it comes to hair, I keep my hair style to a minimum like in a bun or a high pony or a half bun or a hat or plain ol' bed hair. I can't do those Pinterest-worthy braids either, I keep it simple with a fishtail braid on days I can't have my hair flying all over the place. I like the beach wave curls but I hate applying heat on my hair too often. I'm definitely not the girl you go to for hairstyle tricks, but if you're like me and like styles that are quick and easy then keep reading because the
Lee Stafford CHoPstick STYLER
is a great way to change your look dramatically without all the fuss.
