Letting my hair down with Formulate


Today I am letting my hair down for you. Who knows me for a long time remembers me with black hair – it was a long way to become a blonde from that and finally now my hair is nice and long …

My natural hair color is brunette, I need to get my hair colored every month and I do have very fine hair. Not the ideal starting point for long blonde hair, I know, so I do have to be super extra careful.

So when I got approached by Formulate to become a launch partner for their new hair product I was intrigued and said yes right away.

A Shampoo & conditioner, perfectly engineered just for me – based on my characteristics, goals, lifestyle, and environment. And it is Preservative free – Sulfate free – Paraben free and Cruelty free.

When I moved from Florida to California a few years back, the first difference I felt right away was the change in climate, water and humidity.

As a result my hair started to get brittle and dry and broke off. I had to cut it back to a long bob and regrow my hair until it was nice and long again. Climate is definitely a huge factor and Formulate takes this into consideration.

So this is what they made for me:

I wanted Color Protection, Deep Conditioning, something to mend split ends, something anti frizz and something to make my hair glossy and shiny.

And voila – here it is – my own Shampoo and Conditioner – made specifically for me!

So if you are as excited and curious about it – I have great news – I have a GIVEAWAY for you!

Enter now and the winner will receive their very own Shampoo and Conditioner! Excited?

Then enter right here by clicking this link: (Open until 10/26/2018)


If you would like to get your own products right away, Contact me and the first 10 emails will receive a special Invitation Code to Formulate.

Hi Ladies,

I have some amazing Beauty products to share with you today that I have been trying out for the last few weeks. Karina Smirnoff, who most of you know from Dancing with the Stars, teamed up with LA Splash Cosmetics and brought out a great line of lipsticks and make up, The “Karina Collection”.

I love the fact that all of their products are cruelty-free and gluten-free and are made only of FDA approved, domestically purchased ingredients.

In my pictures I used the “Karina Catwalk Mascara”, the “Art-ki-tekt Waterproof slim Eyeliner” and the “Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick” in “Creme Brulee”.

I also tried the “Karina Smirnoff Liquid Lipstick” and the “Diamond Dust”, a loose pigment with very fine sparkles.

If you are a lipstick person this is a great product to have. I loved how the lipstick stays on the whole day, no smudging or coming off at all. I can use it for dancing and performing or for every day. It is perfect for a girls night out or dinner in a great restaurant – no worries about lip stains on the wine glass.

I usually do use lip liner if I wear a stronger lipstick because I feel it adds definition and prevents color bleeding, but with this product I feel I can go without. The applicator make it easy to define and contour the lips and the lipstick dries in quickly without dehydrating the lips.

What is your favorite lipstick? I would love to know and hear what makes it your favorite.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day,
