At the beginning of 2021, I shared here on the blog how exciting it has been working with Hair Food for almost a year. You can check out the other post where I am sharing my routine and a smoothie inspired by their kitchen-crafted recipes full of superfood by clicking here.

I love that they are free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, and dyes- they work amazingly for my hair type and curl journey. It has been such a fun partnership and I get to try the new products, and these are a few that won’t leave my beauty cabinet for a while!!!

1. Hair Food’s Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. 

When I started reading about how to revive your natural curls “apple cider vinegar” was mentioned A LOT. And I understand why. Here are some of the benefits of this rinse for thick and curly hair.

- Helps bring hair’s health back into balance.

-Helps balance a dry and itchy scalp Rich in nutrients that are good for hair.
- Helps exfoliate scalp to remove buildup.

I use it instead of my shampoo and apply it directly to my scalp and hair and leave it for 2-3 minutes.

2) Hair Food’s Coconut & Argan Oil Heat Protectant Blend.

I really try to avoid heat as much as I can, but from time to time I have to curl a few strands around my face AND once every few months, I straighten it with a flat iron.

I spray section by section before applying heat and it protects your hair from heat damage up to 450 degrees and gives it a healthy shine.

3) Hair Food’s Avocado & Argan Oil Smoothing Hair Mask. 

Every time I feel like my hair needs extra hydration, I go for this Avocado & Argan Oil Smoothing Hair Mask. I leave it for 5 minutes, rinse it, and then I feel like new!

4) Hair Food’s Avocado & Argan Sulfate Free Smoothing Hair Oil

If you use any gel to hold your hair, I really recommend using a drop of this hair oil to open up the curls and break the hold.  I really like it because it helps me prevent frizz and gives it a shine kick!

Have you tried any of these?

You can shop them by clicking here and hopefully you’ll love them as much as I do.

Baby #2 IS ON THE WAY!

Thursday, April 15, 2021

Almost a year ago,  I wrote an article about "Are We Ready For Baby #2?".

We definitely have been ready for another baby for a while, but the pandemic changed our plans and we were just going with the flow. Since I haven't shared the news here on the blog,  let me just share it here too!

A few days after my birthday in October,  I found out I was pregnant. It was a bit of a shock because we weren't necessarily TRYING (not being too careful either).  You can  see Gabe's reaction in the video on IG. It was such a sweet reaction!

We waited a lot to share it, I was over 20 weeks- but I decided to wait because we had a scare at 17 weeks and just wanted to hold this baby tighter.

At the moment of this post, I am almost 29 weeks pregnant.  We have both been feeling great!

I'll continue to share more updates here, as I can write more and express myself! This has been like an open to the public diary for 10 years!

We were, and are, SO excited and happy. Nico is really excited to be a big brother and we can't wait to see them together! Leave any questions below! But you can see a few Q+A on my Instagram!
