Need Fabulous Looking Hair?…You Have to Get Got2be

göt2b oil-licious styling oil

I love the Got2b brand! They have never disappointed me with any of their products. They work great on my hair and they are very affordable. I religiously use their shampoo and conditioner, so I decided I should try out some of their other hair products I decided on the Got2be Oil-licious Styling Oil and Got2b Dry Shampoo and they did not disappoint!

Oil-licious Styling Oil has all of the essential oils for hair– argan, white grape, and marula. A combo which is great because it tames my outrageous hair. I use the oil after I shower while my hair is still damp. It turns my big, frizzy hair into glossy, sleek, curls.

göt2b rocking'it dry shampoo

The Got2b rockin’ it encore fresh Dry Shampoo has been a lifesaver! I can’t believe I have lived so long without this product! I have tried other dry shampoos and many leave residue in your hair, but not Got2b’s rockin’ it encore fresh Dry Shampoo! I simply spray the mist into my hair and rub it into my scalp and my hair looks like it has just been washed. Plus it smells great. This is a miracle product for me! It saves me so much time. I am so glad I tried it! You will be too!

Choose you favorite Got2be product today at http://www.got2b.us/got2b/us/en/home.html You can also find Got2Be hair Care products in most retail drug stores nationwide.

Choose your color and “Pencil Me In”



I was very excited to finally have an eyeliner meeting all my needs. The past twenty years, I have been on an active search for an eye-liner that does not make me look like a racoon at the end of the day. Many eye-liners look beautiful at the lighted make-up counters in the mall, however, very few deliver results at the end of the day. Pencil Me eye-liners are inexpensive, glides on without tugging and pulling your eye and are creamy but still smooth. The Me pencils have thirty beautiful shades to choose from, the frosted shades of blue and green to the metallic bronze. The eyeliners were not only beautiful but had many added features making other eye-liners pale in comparison. I never have a sharpener available when my penicl breaks or becomes dull, these pencils have the pencil sharpener built in it. The pencils are infused with vitamins and anti-oxidants helping to protect your  eyes from pollution in the environment. I will definitely be purchasing all thirty shades of this silky,  smooth, long-lasting pencil.

I can not live without my St. Ives


It’s a Glam Thing Guest Blogger, Rachel Aiello, just can’t live without her St. Ives Body Wash. She says. “I must have St. Ives Purifying Sea Salt Exfoliating Body Wash in my shower caddy. After every use my skin is always soft and never dry. Plus, it is the only body wash that I truly trust because I know that it is, paraben an phthalate-free, dermatologist-tested, AND hypoallergenic. You really can’t not go wrong using this body wash. The formula of the body wash contains 100 % natural ingredients such as mineral salt, glycerin, and pacific sea kelp extract to help exfoliate the skin while moisturizing it. And unlike most natural or organic bath products, St. Ives Purifying Sea Salt Exfoliating Body Wash is only $2.99 for a 13.5 oz bottle and $4.89 for a 24 oz bottle! So cheap! I highly recommend trying it out!”


If you don’t need an exfoliant, why not cleanse and moisturize with St. Ives Cucumber Melon Body Wash? After washing with Cucumber Melon, your skin will immediately feel soft and will smell fantastic. Imagine, cleansing with the crisp scent of cucumber melon surronding you, I can’t even describe the aroma, you really have to try this one yourself.

St. Ives carries an incredible line of affordable skincare ranging from exfoliants, body washes, facial products and hand and body lotions to name a few. You can view them all at http://www.stives.com/

Get That Sunkissed Hair That’s Soft, Curly And Luxurious




Pureology’s Gold Definer is an amazing product that gives blondes the lift, hold and shine that it needs. With a combination of Olive, apricot, and jojoba oils it helps bring out the optimum brilliance in my hair. It also uses a Keravis-infused complex that help strengthens my curly hair and makes my blonde color last longer. One of the best features about this product is the texture. It has a lightweight feel and never weighs down my hair; perfect for my curly hair and any humidity during the day. You have to be careful you don’t overload your hair with it, because you only need a little to achieve the perfect volume. You can apply it wet or dry; warm it up in your hands first then spread it in your hair. This product is especially great for people with highlights; it really brings out the golden tones in my hair.

Highlight Stylist Sea Kissed Texturizer is the perfect product for my hair. I was amazed at how well it worked! This is a product that you spray in your hair when it needs a little extra texture. It is great for my curly hair; it defines and does an incredible job at moisturizing too. After using this product my hair comes out wavy and weightless; it gives me the perfect beachy waves without being sticky or frizzy. It works great for people like me with thick hair as well as people with thin hair. I feel like I get better results when I use it with dry hair; however, it works fine with wet hair too. This is a great product to use before I blow out my hair; my hair comes out beautiful every time. If you use this with the Gold Definer and the Bodifying Illuminator, it will give your hair the ultimate boost. It gives my already curly hair a tamed beachy look with some of the salt spray while still keeping my hair hydrated.

The Bodifying illuminator is more like a mousse for people with highlighted hair. Because my hair is already curly I don’t use mousse regularly; however, it is a lightweight formula that adds body and lasts throughout the day. It creates a lot of great body and gave my hair a multi-dimensional shine. This is another product that you only need a small amount to be effective; too much might create your hair to become somewhat straw-like. It is a great product for frizz control. It is best used by dispensing a small amount into your palms and apply to damp hair before blow drying. This is another lightweight product that does not feel greasy to the touch at all and is perfect if you want more curls in your hair.

You can learn more about Pureology and purchase the perfect Pureology product for your hair color at pureology.com

keeki Pure & Simple and that’s exactly why I love it!


Throughout my life while applying nail polish on my nails and toes, I always wondered what the ingredients or should I say the chemicals put into that bottle of nail polish and nail polish remover. It cannot be healthy,  just the harsh smell knocks me dead with concern!  So I went on a mission to locate the healthiest products to make my nails and toes colorful but free from harsh solvents!!! My mission was a success!!!

Keeki Pure & Simple is a company that produces safe, pure and healthy cosmetics and body products for girls!  No harmful ingredients, and is earth-friendly and animal-friendly!  Keeki Pure & Simple nail polish is a completely non-toxic, 100% biodegradable, vegan and gluten free formula making your nails and toes the prettiest they can be!  Free from pthalates, formaldehyde, acetone, and toluene (google those words, your heart will stop beating). Keeki Pure & Simple is the safest nail care line on the market or should I say, safest on the planet!  No damage to your nails or the environment!  I AM IMPRESSED WITH KEEKI PURE & SIMPLE!



My favorite fun color is Sour Apple Slushie.  I love how Keeki Pure & Simple nail polishes glide on with no smelly chemicals to pollute your nose (or your family noses) or the atmosphere!  The nail polish is long-lasting too but with the 26 rockin’ colors that are pretty and will entertain you, you will want to change your polish everyday to match your outfit or your mood!

I am, also, overwhelmingly impressed with is Keeki Pure & Simple polish remover!  Low-odor, acetone-free, hypoallergenic, and gluten-free!  Amazingly Keeki Pure & Simple Polish Remover does it’s job right, removes the nail polish, not nail protein called keratin, from your nails. I appreciate healthy and safe products, of course that work and hold up to their standards!  Keeki Pure & Simple nail products are just what the title says……. Pure and Simple!   www.keekipureandsimple.com
