Over the past week I’ve been detoxing. It’s not what you think! I’ve been detoxing my hair! It was so easy Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo.

Now that fall is here, I want to make sure my hair is healthy and prepared for the season. This weekend I am traveling back to Minneapolis to see family, friends and check out Envision Anniversary Fashion Show. I need my hair to look and feel good, just one less thing for me to worry about! The great thing about Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo is that it’s a product you can use as a weekly hair shampoo treatment and is safe for color-treated hair. I simply added this shampoo in as a part of my weekly hair care routine, and was very surprised by the difference. Funny thing is, I’ve always noticed this product in the store, but never tried it, until now.

I feel like I’ve been detoxing a lot, or trying to, lately. From my 3 day cleanse, to cleaning out my closet and getting rid of things and stuff that doesn’t make me happy, to updating my beauty routine, my move to Milwaukee is starting to feel more and more like a fresh start!

The cleanse kick is here to stay. I’ve been eating healthier (a lot of vegetables), working out more (free gym membership is probably one of the best perks I get at work), staying positive and happy (surrounding myself with positive people), using new beauty products (like the Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo) and reorganizing my wardrobe (more solid, neutral colors that are timeless).

If you are a hair obsessed 20 or 30 something, you will appreciate Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo. It helps remove all residue caused by other shampoos, conditioners and styling products. Thanks to its mild formula this shampoo is suitable for all hair types, and minimizes chances of causing irritation. My hair ends up feeling so soft and looks shiny every time I use this product!

I have a new once a week rule in my house:

Once a week I clean out and organize my closet, my beauty products and my apartment.

Once a week I wash my makeup brushes, my towels, my sheets.

Once a week I use the anti-residue shampoo by Neutrogena.

My Anti-Residue Moment: Is staying organized and tidy in all areas of my life.

Beauty Brunch: Nails and Lips and Detox Drinks

beauty-brunch

Welcome to beauty brunch! Today’s post is all about nails and lips. Remember the teaser I posted last week featuring Sinful Colors Nail Polish? Today we are going to talk about those, as well as some of the other products that I have been using to keep the polish on my nails for more than a day.

Left to right: Solar Flux, Matte About Blue, Red Tired, Rubber Ball, Rain Rubber, Pipaya

These nail polishes have a very interesting grainy texture and remind me of a color my friend Luchessa sent me from Germany, but that one was specifically advertised as Sand Finish, while these say absolutely nothing on the bottle.

Of course the colors are brilliant and vibrant. I love the look and feel on my nails. As you may have guessed I wore blue and red ones for July 4th, and the color is still lasting. I am glad it didn’t chip on the first day. I have been making sure to use a top coat every time though. My new favorite is Sally Hansen base and top coat, as well as the Big Matte Top coat.

Another summer beauty must-have I want to talk about today is lipsticks, glosses and tinted balms. I have been using a lot of different products lately, and wanted to share my thoughts, looks and opinions on.

These two babies by NYX (Strawberry Milk and Narcissus) have been my go-to this season. I love the pale lip look, it compliments the tan.

A couple other lip favorites have been Maybelline Baby Lips in Oh Orange ($3.99 on Maybelline.com)

And Sigma Lip Gless in Get Ready ($10 on SigmaBeauty.com)

And finally I want to share a couple detox drink recipes with you. If you are like me, plain water doesn’t taste good, so  that will help you stay hydrated and feel good.

Bring 72 oz of water and 4 tablespoons of stevia to a boil, add 4-5 stalks of rhubarb cut up into 1 inch slices, and let boil for 5 minutes. Let cool, add ice and enjoy!

1 thick slice of lemon, 5-6 freshly picked mint leaves, 5-6 freshly picked lemon balm leaves. Pour boiling water over everything, steep. Drink cold.

I hope you all had a great weekend! Thanks for reading!
