This hair product will have you breaking out with chemicals. Part 2

Yes, I have finally found natural hair products that work and that helped me to break out with the chemicals!

In my last article I promised that I will recommend another great natural, vegan, hair product. Something that you can buy trusting that it will actually work. And not just that, but something that will not damage your hair – nontoxic.

If you’re concerned about using too many styling products on your hair like gels, mousses, hairsprays etc., then I am not telling you to stop being concerned and continue to use them. No, they are actually very damaging to your scalp and hair.

You need something like this Evolvh Ultimate Styling Lotion. I am recommending it because it’s like an does-it-all product that doesn’t let your hair greasy.

The formula is super light and you can apply it on dry hair as well as on the wet hair, after taking a shower.

 

Boosts shine »

Reduces frizz »

Manages curls »

Adds volume »

 

All of these ↑ depending on how you choose to use it (this is how I do it)

For volume → Apply formula to damp hair at roots and then blow dry away from scalp

For styling curls → Apply to damp hair and work the lotion from roots to ends

For giving an extra boost of shine → Apply to wet hair and let it dry

Reduce frizz by → Applying the product on dry hair on the sections that need to be tamed

 

There you go! This is it, a cruelty free, vegan, natural product that saves you space in the bathroom (you can get rid of all the other unnecessary styling products).

Breakfast in bed. Wood tray set review.

Everyone that really knows me is aware that I looove to decorate. I could stay in an interior design/furniture/homeware store for hours without getting bored. I know exactly what I like and when I find “that something” that is awesome (design, quality, price), I am not keeping it for myself. That’s the case with these pine wood set of trays.

I love when I can use a product for multiple purposes, and even though these trays arrived in my mail just one week ago, I cannot stop using them!

 

Seriously, I use them all the times. Below are some examples:

When I want to have some time for myself and enjoy reading a good book and a glass of wine. Did I mentioned that these trays are processed with a smooth surface finish which repels any type of liquid or moisture? Even if I spilled some wine on the wood tray, still I could wash it off and the tray looks like new.

When I want to enjoy one of my favorite lunches. These trays are very easy to carry. So, if I just want to move around the house with my plate, fork, glass etc. they makes it very easy!

Perfect for breakfast in bed (for the same reason I mentioned before, even if they are 100% natural wood – they are sooo light!)

I use the middle serving tray when I want to indulge a little snack while watching my favorite show, SURVIVOR!!! This one is a perfect fit for my ice cream and my remote control, hehe. I like to keep the remote close to me in case something needs to be “fixed”.

The smallest one is perfect for my decorations!

Whenever we have guest and I want to serve them with something, these trays always come in handy! They make the job easier because I can carry, move around, and serve.

Last but not least, I found these trays very helpful for displaying all of my fun cupcakes.

*You can find the recipe here → Nutella and cream cheese cupcakes with a twist.

 

In conclusion, if you want some real wood, qualitative, nice looking trays, this is the way you should go! I will definitely keep an eye on Ripe Collective brand.

I am sure that you also have items that you use for basically everything. Isn’t it nice when you find something that can do that for you?

From ZERO to HERO. Comfort Works slipcover review.

Do you want to add some personality to your couch/loveseat?

Are you looking for a new sofa?

 

Whatever might be the reason – here me out!

The couch in the photo below is the first couch my husband and I ever had. Hard to believe, right? Well…we were living in a small apartment and back then we needed a small couch that could turn into a bed – a small sleeper sofa. So, this “Solsta” IKEA blue navy sofa was a good choice. It might not look like, but this couch becomes a pretty good size bed.

 

Here is how the couch looked when we just bought it

So…being our first couch and having multiple functions I had a hard time trowing it away. Plus, I have always liked to give a second chance to old objects, restore them or make the best out of them.

 

 

Here is how the couch looks like after 2 years of being used

Yiikes! You can notice how the blue navy is not so blue anymore, haha. The material looks very worn out creating an overall sad look.

I thought about different options in order to transform this couch. I wanted a material that will match with the fabric of our living room couch, which is a rich luxurious velvet indigo blue. I was having in mind to place this couch in my daughter’s bedroom. I looked around at different materials but I couldn’t find anything that I really liked.

Searching online and reading some interior design blogs, I discovered Comfort Works. They are offering custom made sofa covers and replacement slipcovers. My first thought was “Ok, this site looks pretty cool, they even have free worldwide shipping but do they have a slipcover for my poor looking sofa? And if they do, there is no way that I could find a velvet material.” I was going to find out that I was completely wrong !

On their site I was able to find exactly what I needed. You just have to pick the type of couch that you own and they make sure that you get what you want and need.

Below there is a video in which I show you how simple it is to pick the perfect slipcover for your couch.

 

Also, if you desire a specific material or color, if you want to feel the material and see how would it go in your room, comfort-works.com can send you some fabric samples.

Did I mentioned that this handmade slipcovers are coming with a 3 year warranty?

My sofa cover arrived on time (the estimate delivery takes between 1 and 2 weeks). It was packaged in a very cute way.

I was very excited to put it on. For some reason I was thinking to set apart some time in my day for this process. I don’t know why I was thinking that it’s going to take me some time to set everything into place. In reality, everything was very easy because the covers come with labels, like this one:

So my slipcover was on in less than 3 minutes. I made sure that everything was in its place and then I was ready to throw some pillows on and make my small couch look comfy and chic.

 

Voila! Here is the final result:

Disclosure:  This is NOT a sponsored post. Comfort Works did not provided the slipcover in exchange for my review. I bought it with my personal money. I really like the product so I decided to share this article with you. Maybe your couch needs a transformation and this solution may sound tempting (instead of not giving any change to your old couch and thinking to get rid of it).
