Malie is a dream from Hawaii

Who wants to feel as though you live in Hawaii every morning you wake up? *Raises my hand* If anyone is reading this and you live in Hawaii;I’m jealous and send some sunshine up to DC! I’ve been lucky enough to be able to test out some of Malie’s products and to be honest, It’s added a little sense of sunshine during these last couple of gloomy months.

Below is just 3 of my favorite Malie products, I will be featuring more soon but couldn’t wait to share the follow:

 

SHAMPOO

Mango Nectar shampoo: Let’s just say every morning I use this I feel like I’m on vacation for 20 mins.

The aroma is amazing and it leaves my hair feeling clean and silky.

• Paraben & sulfate free
• Beneficial for daily use
• Color safe
• Applicable for all hair types
• 6 oz or 16 oz

plumeria_polish__03618_1433367669_800_1200Plumeria body polish (body scrub): I use this once a week to refresh my skin after a long work week. It’s my “me” time & my skin appreciates it.

Again it smells amazing, the hint of gardenia & sandalwood is my favorite! It gives me life!!!

• Top: Greens, Citrus
• Mid: Plumeria, Peach
• Base: Jasmine, Sandalwood

Hibiscus Soy Candle: I use this in my office at work and everyone always asks where it’s from, my boss can even smell it from hers.

It burns clean and the entire candle burns evenly (my pet peeve is when candles don’t burn right.) it burns for 60 hours!

I highly recommend treating yourself to this candle, maybe even two of them.

Made from clean-burning waxes, Malie’s petroleum-free soy candles burn from a 100% cotton wick for 60 hours. (8 oz / 240 ml)

Jeggings that fit like a glove.

As you all know, not only do I love a good deal, I love leggings (who doesn’t?). BUT I never was a fan of jeggings until I found this pair. I purchased these from a thrift store on Instagram but they are originally from Wal-Mart, for $15 you can be rocking these as well. They come in regular and petite, I wear a size 4 in these.

Dress them up for a night out on the town or dress them down for running errands.

 Above is some photos on how you can truly make these a staple piece in your closet.

Managing Breakouts

Unfortunately, it’s winter right now and my skin hates me. Who else has this issue? I know I can’t be the only one.

My skin goes from super oily in the summer to super dry in the winter. Is there a happy medium? Yes! It just wasn’t the easiest for me to find.

Currently I am using some amazing organic products that have tamed my skin for me. Nourish Organics is a company that I speak and think of, they have a huge range of products and they are affordable! (Finally, right?) The older I get, the more I am trying to understand what I use on my skin. Below is a list of products I adore and recommend trying out!

Skin Care:

1. Argan face serum (Apricot + Rosehip) – I use this when my skin is drying out. (Winter time or after being in the sun for awhile)

2. Body Wash (Almond Vanilla) – Shower daily with this. Has helped my breakouts on my shoulders.

3. Face Cleanser (Cucumber + Watercress) – Use this twice a day.

4. Eye Treatment (Avocado + Argan Oil) – Use after I shower. I might not have puffy eyes on a daily basis but after a good wine night I do!

Other products I recommend:

1. Deodorant Cream (Almond Vanilla)

2. Body Oil Mist (Rose Hip + Rosewater)

You can find discounts on Nourish Organics instagram page: @nourishorganics or go directly to their website: www.nourishorganics.com

Pure, potent and fresh – Miessence Certified Organics for health, home and body. Looking and feeling good doesn’t have to cost the Earth.

I hope you enjoy these products as much as I do!

Extend & Plump

Did I get your attention? Extend and plump what? Your lashes of course (Don’t be a perve!) To be honest one of my favorite things in this world is fake eyelashes. If you’ve tried them, you’re probably on the same boat as me. If you haven’t, you NEED to! I’ve always done my own lashes using the ones you find at the drug stores until one day my life changed forever!

I got lash extensions! I’m sure you’ve heard every story and then some about getting lash extensions but let me tell you the truth…..not only are they amazing, they save me 20 mins every morning and they look so natural. (We have all been there when one fake eye lash strip is falling off and we didn’t notice….YIKES!)

Here is a before, during and after photo of my lashes. Who wouldn’t love those? I went to “Lashes By Ricky Vox” in Sterling, Va. For all my local ladies I have a discount code for you, Get 10% off a full set of lashes when you book you appointment if you tell them I referred you!
