Using clip-ins may seem scary at first, however, the process is not the most challenging thing in the world. Sometimes I need to change my look for a photo shoot, or I enjoy using the extra length of hair for my night shift at the bar. Recently my coworker at the bar gave me Kylie Jenner extensions since it matches the teal highlights I have in my hair. My face glows immediately once I held the Kylie Jenner’s extensions in my hand because it’s been challenging to find good quality ombre clip-on extensions. To help keep up with the premium, quality of the extensions I use Kenra Professional Haircare.
From trimming my split-ends, getting a blowout and dying my hair, my beautician always knows how I like it. I even requested her number, to schedule appointments. Nobody enjoys waiting hours on end to get their hair done, and she always follows through in our appointments. There has been a couple of horrifying situations where a hairdresser cut my hair too short or dyed my hair the wrong color. To not relive my hair traumas, I make sure to stay loyal. During our last hair session she blurted out June 25th is National Beautician Day and she truly deserves a lovely gift. I curated a wish list from My Gift Stop in her absolute favorite color PINK! All I need for you to do is help me pick one.
Tomorrow marks the first official day of summer. I wish I were making my very own slip and slide, reality strike I’m stuck in the office. On a brighter note, I’ll be heading to Puerto Rico within a month. Traveling to the motherland means shopping for new summer clothes. Or I’m just as guilty as any other shopaholic, coming up with reasons to spend my hard earn money. It’s even more tempting when online retailers like Zaful are having a sale. To help with my shopping addiction, I decided to give in and help celebrate Zaful 4th Anniversary sale by coming up with a summer wear wish list.
Summer officially starts on June 21st, however, it feels like it’s already here in NYC. With the hot weather, that means for me to try and get the chance to dip in the pool. Or catch some rays laying on the sand. In reality, it sounds great until I start filling up my vanity with waterproof makeup. I try to use the waterproof makeup to cover up my hasty dark spots. I’ve had these annoying dark spots as long as I can remember. Although I don’t have as many dark spots as I did growing up, they still exist.

If you been a long-term reader here at She Is Melrose you know I worked with the natural hair care brand Treasured Locks in the past. I tried the Super Natural Curl Tamer, and now I can’t wait to try their BioChooz Chewable Vitamins. I’ve taken chewy hair vitamins in the past. However, I wanted to give the brand a try since I had so much success with the Super Natural Curl Tamer. The BioChooz Chewable Vitamins has so many haircare benefits you will see a transition in no time!
Mermaid hair trend is not going out of style anytime soon. The launch of Garnier latest dye at home boxes are here to prove it. Garnier COLOR SENSATION collection carries along the basics such as black, blondes and reds. Then they have made you look twice, vibrant colors.

About a couple weeks ago I received a shipment of Revlon latest photo ready collection. I reached out to my followers on Instagram Stories and Snapchact. I asked them what makeup look I should create with using the photo ready beauty items from Revlon. A fellow vlogger named Trae Trae suggested to keep it simple by doing a highlight and conceal video. I took her suggestion and decided to roll with it!

Hey, it’s your typical New York City living girl. Here I am working multiple jobs,, barely catching “ZzZ’s”, after all, is the city that never sleeps. To add “icing to the cake” I recently realized my lease is up by the next month. Therefore, my skin switch is on to full out stress mode. Before I start screaming and kicking, I told myself to relax, by having an at-home spa day using Jan Marini Zyme Collection.
