2012 Favorite Hair, Body, & Face Products

If you're reading this, you survived the Mayan Apocalypse!! Yay for you! But on a serious note, we find ourselves at the end of another calender year and it's a time to reflect, and a time to grow! I always say, make each day better than the last so lets make next year better than this one. Looking back over the past year, I went through a lot of changes and started caring more about the ingredients that were in the products I was using. I sort of experienced my quarter life crisis!

The following are my favorite products from 2012 that survived my first purging of my more "toxic" products! In the new year I will have plenty of product reviews for you all as I racked up on natural hair products during Black Friday and for Christmas; I have also been looking into more natural body and facial products to test out. If you have any suggestions of "natural" chemical free products, or brands you can suggest for the categories below, please leave a comment and let me know! I love trying and testing out new products!

2012 Glam bag favorites

What a year 2012 has been! There are so many subscription services out there that I feel the originals must really stay on top of their service and continue to wow their subscribers or be replaced! As far as beauty subscriptions, I have been a subscriber of My glam bag, which is now known as ipsy, from the beginning. January 2012 was my first bag and I was very impressed! Pictured you see 10 of the bags from the past year because one bag broke on me and the other had spilled powder in it and I'm a neat freak so it had to go. The following are my favorites from the past year as well as some buzz worthy products that I have not tried but plan to do so and I think you all might like them as well. These products will have an asterisk (*) next to them. Hope my year in review presents new products you may not be aware of as much of them were new to me until I received the monthly glam bag. The subscription is $10 a month; you receive a cute makeup bag with 5-6 products. For more information please visit

November Ipsy glam bag Review!

You're invited... To a season of soirees with ipsy.. beauty by you! That was this month's theme and I couldn't have been happier with the products that were included this month! Get ready to be "Party Perfect" with the November Glam Bag.

bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip gloss
-I like this gloss and it wasn't too sticky or drying. It gives the lips a nice light hint of color but would look great if worn over a dark wine colored lipstick for added drama. I chose to wear it alone for a more natural look.

November curlBox Review

Curl-friends!! So sorry for the delay of this review! Holiday season is pretty busy with family and shopping and planning events! Any who I have had the opportunity to use the products that were included in this month's curlBox and I hope my review will be of some help to someone!! November's theme was "More Moisture" say sayonara to dry tresses & hello to super sexy soft hair!
