Lifetime Movie Review - Kept Woman

Goodness, Lifetime, what is going on here?

I've seen way too many movies on Lifetime with this premise:

Couple moves to new town. Neighbor seems nice. Neighbor not so nice after all. Neighbor is a psychopath. Wife tries to warn her husband that neighbor is not so nice. Husband gets mad at wife and calls her crazy. Wife comes up missing. Wife is in the neighbors basement, being held against her will. Husband doesn't know where wife is. Now wife has to find a way to escape.


I give this movie 1 out of 5 stars because this concept has been done to death. I can't be the only person who realizes this...

Vasanti BrightenUp! | BIRCHBOX | Product Review

I received a sample of the Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator in my December 2014 BIRCHBOX. Just the name of the product had me anxious to try it. Face it ladies, we all have skin problems and are looking for the next thing to try to help relieve/prevent breakouts. So I tried this exfoliating cleanser and it was awesome! It contains coconut, aloe vera and papaya. I'm all for natural ingredients and this product is 99% natural. No parabens. No sulfates.
The directions say to wet your face then massage in a circular motion. I have to tell you...the micro-crystals rubbing against my face made me feel like I was in a spa, getting a professional facial. Awesome! I would highly recommend this product. It left my skin feeling smooth and clean.

Product Review - Beautiful Textures (Texture Manageability System)

So with all the buzz about the Beautiful Textures, Texture Manageability System, I decided to pick up a box of the product from Walmart. I've been natural for 3 years and since I am a 4C natural, my hair is tightly coiled, so I thought this would be a nice alternative to natural hair to be able to wear my hair straight for 4 - 6 weeks without having to get a relaxer.

So I followed the instructions and shampooed my hair with the shampoo in the kit. Then I followed up with the leave in conditioner. I blow dried my hair then I flat ironed my hair. The first day I flat ironed it, it was beautiful. The second day, my hair was completely frizzy and poofy. I was so disappointed being that I had an event to go to and the hair didn't hold up like the produce claims it would. Maybe it works for other hair textures, but not 4C hair. And the shampoo really strips all the oil out of your hair. It leaves your hair very dry and brittle. I would definitely not recommend this product and I will not try it again.
