I'm In LOVE!

I have been searching all of my life for the right one. Some work only for a temporary time. Some completely turn me off from the start. Others led me on to believe that they would be the one.

I truly <3 this stuff! I have to start from the beginning...

About two years ago, I was in a store called "National Wholesale Liquidators" looking for some random items. And I realized I was out of shampoo. I ACCIDENTALLY picked up two bottles of Herbal Essences Hello Hydration 2-in-1 Shampoo/Conditioner. I've managed to use up both bottles and it must have been because of the smell because I certainly was not impressed with the results. I simply do not like 2-in-1 Shampoo/Conditioner combinations. But that's for another post. a random lurker on and, I read a lot of people ranting and raving about Herbal Essence's "Hello Hydration". I was thinking in my head **Been there, Done that**. Since I was turned off by the 2-in-1, I figured, how much of a difference can the Conditioner be as far as results?  So I went to Target in the beginning of the summer and picked a bottle of Hello Hydration and Totally Twisted Conditioners. I have been using Totally Twisted as a combing conditioner and I haven't been impressed. I kind of forgot that I bought the Hello Hydration until I noticed it was collecting dust for most of the summer. So I tried it last night and...


I feel like one of the women on the initial Herbal Essences commercials with the orgasmic sounds that they make in the shower when using these products. It had the elements of EVERYTHING I have been looking for in a conditioner:

1) Slip - I could run my fingers through my 3b/3c/4a hair....EVEN WHEN ALMOST DRY...which is almost an impossible task especially since my hair is 4a in the back. 

2) Smell - I had already established that I loved the smell with the 2-in-1, but since I will be using this often, it's nice that I can tolerate and become exhilarated with the smell.

3) Less work - The detangling experience was amazing. Less broken hairs and minimal frustration! Since I do braidouts in the form of 8-10 cornrows (which can cause soooo much breakage if my hair isn't untangled), I found this to be heaven sent!

4) Light + Fluffiness + Moisture - Honestly, for 2.99 a bottle...I managed to get this too!?!? I wouldn't be mad if I got this for Christmas wrapped up in a bow.

So there you have it. My (hopefully) endless love :)

Damn Those Kardashian Girls!!

Ok, I'll admit it. I'm hooked.

I've been watching "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" for over a year now, I don't know what "season" I started with, and I've even been watching the "in-between" show: "Kourtney and Khloe Take On Miami". I cannot believe how addictive this show has become. So in justifying my new addiction, I am going to try to break down why I am glued to the screen every Sunday night at 10 PM. (And interestingly enough, Kim is not one of them!)

3) Rob Kardashian - He is majorly sexy. I think I should write to E! Network and ask that they give him some more airtime on this half hour show. I was hoping things would've worked out with him and Adrienne Bailon. Unfortunately it didn't. Maybe this is a sign. <3. Haha!

2) Scott - I cannot stand this guy. But what would the show be lately without him. From his Hugh Heffner esque robes, to the florescent colored one-size-too-tight suits, to his wild and drug (seemingly) infused antics...lately he has become somewhat of a "star" in his own way. Yes, it is sad and disheartening having to watch Kourtney put up with his behaviors...but it makes great TV!

1) Khloe! Khloe! Khloe! - This girl is insane. She is my alter ego. If my conscience was a person, it would be her. She doesn't bite her tongue for s*#@! Out of the three sisters, Khloe is my absolute favorite. I enjoy watching her bash Scott (Kourtney's Boyfriend) every week. It is like her mission in life is to not only properly label him as a "sociopath" but to bring him down. I also like the fact that Khloe is nothing like Kim or Kourtney. She even refers to herself as their "step sister". But underneath the craziness lies a big heart. And that's very evident at least every five or six episodes. lol.
