Hair Food – Infused with Honey Apricot!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hair Food. The opinions and text are all mine.

I recently discovered Hair Food – I decided to end my evening last night with a good read and pampering myself and my new hair extensions to some extra love! I’m excited to share my review below and thank you Hair Food for partnering with me on this review.

Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner Infused with Honey Apricot Fragrance is the set I decided try. My hair tends to need extra moisture with all the products and heat I have been using recently.

I’m such a product junkie so I’ve been super excited to give these a try. My hair was SO happy – always remember, we take care of our bodies and skin…don’t forget your hair! I also love how the Shampoo products are Sulfate, Silicone, Paraben and Mineral oil free! That is a huge check mark in my book and the way I take care of my hair and my extensions.

I always make my shower or bath experience all about pampering myself and taking time to relax – a good 20 mins of peace is always needed. I love how Hair Food is based around pampering and hydrating your hair!

Let’s dive into the Key Benefits of the Shampoo:

  • Uniquely infused with honey and apricot fragrance
  • Moisture Shampoo is designed for system use with the Moisture Conditioner. Use together for luxurious moisture and nourishment for healthy looking hair
  • Silicone Free
  • Paraben Free
  • Mineral Oil Free

Key benefits of the Conditioner:

  • Cleansing Conditioner Infused with Honey & Apricot Fragrance
  • Lightweight Cleanser that leaves hair smooth and soft
  • A conditioning recipe that gently smoothes the hair cuticle and helps protect hair against future damage
  • Paraben Free
  • Mineral Oil Free

The conditioner didn’t weigh my hair down — which I’m a fan of and personally NEED. I only use conditions half way down my hair to my ends. I don’t apply conditioner on my scalp, only shampoo!

For under $10 each, this is a great way to try a new product and give your hair the love it deserves. They also have some other great products in the line….a few I’m going to be trying in the future as well. Here are a few to keep your eye out for:

Hair Food Root Cleansing Shampoo Infused With Strawberry Ginger Fragrance

Hair Food Renew Shampoo Infused with Apple Berry Fragrance

Hair Food Volume Shampoo Infused With Kiwi Fragrance

Hair Food Gluten Free Color Care Shampoo Infused with Mandarin & Guava Fragrance

Hair Food Gluten Free Quench Shampoo Infused with Peach & Honey Fragrance

You can find Hair Food at your local CVS. Learn more here!

Inside my stay at NYFW week with Innside by Melia.

Not only is NYC one of my favorite cities EVER — I love finding new chic and incredible places to stay that won’t break the bank. Innside by Melia is a must stay hotel — I can’t wait to share my thoughts below with you. If you’re headed to the Big Apple anytime soon, make SURE you stay here and if you’ve already booked somewhere — at least stop by for lunch, dinner or drinks at the restaurant located in the heart of the lobby. #WorkTripping

I was so excited to grab my room key and start my stay! I was a little early to check in, so I grabbed lunch at the bar and a much needed drink. Can we talk about how cute the bar is?  **warning: Don’t go behind their bar, haha**

Even in the cold temps you can enjoy their “outside” seating, it’s closed in and heaters are above! At night, this area is so romantic — a great date night or even fun atmosphere to grab drinks before heading out for a fun evening. I noticed a lot of people just came to the hotel to enjoy this area. That says a lot!

There is also their gorgeous dining area on the lower level of the hotel. You can enjoy a delicious brunch here as well. Can we also take a minute to appreciate the art? Stunning right? It looked like to be made out of artificial grass. Stunning!!

Woo Hoo!! I got my room key — time for some fun…

Does anyone else love putting on the comfy hotel robe and jump in bed? Innside by Melia had two robes and two pairs of slippers in the room. Luckily, I only needed one of each but having more is always great! I mean, doesn’t this look fun?!

Not only was the hotel lobby, restaurant and bar very clean and chic…the rooms are too. I can only image how hard it is to keep these rooms up to date, clean and on point. They did a killer job. I felt like I was at home in my own space, it didn’t feel like anyone else ever stayed in the room before me.

I stayed in the King View room — two huge floor to ceiling windows, a king sized bed, a work desk and chair, enough room for all three suitcases I brought and more. The build in was my favorite – it had a place to hang all my outfits, store my shoes below, a safe and extra space for my bags, accessories and makeup. I can appreciate when a room is designed to help you stay organized and it doesn’t make you feel crowded.

The bathroom was a decent size as well. I’m all about good water pressure it comes to taking a shower, anyone else?!! No complaints here with their shower. There was a huge drawer under the sink for more storage for hair products, makeup and hair tools! Win-win!

You can see behind me in this photo the storage I was speaking of! Also there is a cute mini fridge built in as well. All waters, juice and sodas are complimentary. Yassss!!! It always bothers me when my room doesn’t have water in stock.

Just some of the other great things they have to offer:

Located in Chelsea and in convenient proximity to NoMad, Garment District, Greenwich Village and Union Square.

Walking distance to famous New York City landmarks such as the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, the iconic Flatiron Building, Madison Square Park, and Times Square.

Modern, spacious rooms perfect for business and leisure travelers.

Unique suites with terraces featuring breathtaking views of the Empire State Building.

2 Meeting Rooms with capacity for up to 70 persons total

Fitness Center with outdoor terrace. (Talk about a view!)

I can’t wait to stay again with the Innside. It’s time to kick your feet up, enjoy an amazing stay and not break the bank during your stay. Trust me — you’ll love it!!
