Tree Hut & Me

Summer time means making extra sure you’re on point when at the pool, wearing dresses and shorts!!

Thankfully @treehut sent me this set to help me shave/wax and look my best.

I used the shave prep in the shower before shaving, it helps remove dead skin cells and lift up the hair as well. It’s one of my favorites because of the sugar scrub, yes it smells like you can eat it, but please don’t. (haha you never know!) The shaving oil you can use after shaving but I used it during, personally thats how I like to use it. You can do either! The body butter helps minimize how often you need to shave, I have been using it for two weeks and I love it. It does take up to 4 weeks to see results but I personally have thin hair so it’s been working faster for me. I use in on my arms, legs, bikini area. I haven’t used the wax kit yet, not brave enough…haha. I will be trying it in weeks to come and will give you an update on how it went. So, I’m glad I was able to review these products and take some time to give you some feedback as well. Remember, #BaseSkinIsIn & @treehut can help you stay summer fresh all year round. Below I’ve posted the photos of each item and also links to purchase!

PB&J Boutique and Me

Hey Ya’ll,

 

I’m so excited to share this amazing boutique I found! PB&J boutique was great to collaborate with, their customer service was very responsive via email and direct message on Instagram and their items I received were great quality as well. Their price ranges from low to high, which I honestly like because they have a little bit for everyones budget. Somedays you want to look at the sale rack and maybe it’s a Friday and you’d like to treat yourself. I also adore the vintage/boho look and they have it all and more. What’s great about finding boutiques is not only supporting small businesses that want to grow into larger ones, you find unique pieces as well. Below I will show two looks that I own and also some I found to be perfect for future looks. You can also shop using my discount code of “Tonyamichelle” & get 20% until July 18th!

Beyond the Beauty & Me!

Hey Hey Ya’ll,
I’m back with some goodies I want to share with you, thanks to Beauty the Beauty! (They are pampering my hair and it’s been much needed.)
beyondtheB2
I got these hair products in about a week ago, and the hair gods have been good to me since. I blow dry, straighten or curl my hair 5 days a week and lately my hair has been screaming “Help Help!” I know I shouldn’t do so much to my hair, but I can’t help it. Dry shampoo is also one of my best friends, which will be coming in a blog post later. I live by it. So let’s get into how these products are helping me get that extra sass in my hair!!
The Olea hair mask is great for my hair because sometimes I use box dye.  I know, I know, it’s not good to use box dye but sometimes a girl gotta do what a girl gotta do! This hair mask has helped put some moisture and shine back into my hair and who wouldn’t want that? The E Serum has also helped me keep my locks shiny and under control during this summer humidity. I use this product probably twice a week and already I’m noticing a little bit goes a long way! I swear, in Virginia we skipped spring and went right into crazy temperatures. Thankfully, this shampoo and conditioner has helped with hydration, leaving both my hair and scalp feeling regenerated – no doubt due to the Olive Oil in them both, which I personally love. I’m that girl who only uses conditioners on my ends and probably only twice a week. The shampoo I use every day or every 2 days. These products range in price from $0.75 (for the samples) to $20-$120 for the complete set.

If you use the coupon code “tonyamichelle50” you will receive 50% off of your order and FREE shipping.
This code is only good until Tuesday, so treat yourself to some “beautiful locks” over the holiday weekend!

I also received this complete set!
hairsetThe set includes a regular sized straightener, a mini sized straightener, and a volume curling tool.
The complete set retails for $499.99 but again you can use the coupon code “tonyamichelle50” for 50% off! What I love about this set the most is the mini. It fits perfectly into your purse, work bag, gym bag or carry on. If you’re anything like me – you’re always on the go, and might need to touch up that do! Haven’t had the chance to play around the volume tool yet but that is on my agenda this weekend while I get ready to celebrate the 4th and eat everything possible. Any diet companies reading this? Email me! I’m gonna need a good workout after this weekend. Ha Ha.
