I was lucky enough to be selected for Influnsters L’Oreal Paris VoxBox. In this VoxBox I received the complete 4 step line of L’Oréal Paris Ultimate Straight.

AGR Faternity Formal

Saturday I went to my boyfriend’s fraternity formal. He is in the fraternity Alpha Gamma Rho and this year was the third formal of his that I have been to. It was definitely bitter sweet with this being his last formal since he is graduating this year. With this being the last hurrah, I decided to go all out with my dress and hair.

My dress is Sherri Hill and my favorite part about it was the all open back. I got my hair done at my usual salon called Studio 7.

Before heading to formal we stopped at one of Michael’s fraternity brother’s house, that was on the way to the hotel and did some trap shooting. It was an interesting way to start off the day to say the least, but it was very entertaining. After that we headed to the hotel where the event was held and we all checked into our rooms. We all got situated in our rooms and did some exploring to figure out who was all there and to get a feel for where everything/everyone was in the hotel. As it started to approach the time for dinner, we all started to get ready and into our dresses. Before we all headed to the meal we of course has to take some pictures!

After we were all done eating we did some dancing, went swimming, hung out, and of course had to go on a late night run to Perkins. I would definitely say my last AGR formal was a huge success! I’m going to miss all the graduating guys and all the great times we have had together throughout my time in college so far! A huge shout out to my boyfriend Michael for being a great formal date throughout the past few years!



What’s in My Shower? [Michelle]

Hello!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Mine was wonderful, but of course it went by way too fast like always.  Since Mondays are usually a bit of drag and a lot of people’s least favorite day of the week (I know it’s mine), I decided to share with you a fun beauty video to hopefully make your Monday a little brighter.

I don’t know why, but I really like seeing what others keep/use in their showers.  This is a  popular video on YouTube so it’s very easy for me to get caught up in watching tons of these videos at a time.  If you would like to see what’s in my shower, then watch the video below!

If you have any questions about the products I mentioned in the video, please comment below and let me know! I will definitely get back to you with an answer! Rachel and I would also love to know what some of your favorite products are that you keep in your shower as well.

Hair Growth Treatment Product: Love it or Leave it?

Both of us are currently growing out our hair.  With that, we are trying to take better care of our hair so it grows faster and is healthier.  We’ve been cutting down on heat, as well as trying out new products that help with hair growth and/or improve the appearance of our hair.

There is one hair product that we have both been using for a few months (Rachel a bit longer) that we knew we had to share with you because it’s now one of our holy grail hair products!  (spoiler alert: it’s a love it product) Here’s the product:

Hair Growth Treatment by Lee Stafford


Description from Ulta’s website:
“For girlys growing their hair but never getting the beautiful long locks they desire. Your hair never reaching its maximum, glorious length is a frustrating, disappointing, upsetting nightmare! As hair grows it can get damaged and break, meaning more hair cut off, more often so your hair can never reach its glorious growth potential. This gorgeous, thick intensive treatment with Pro-Growth complex gives your hair strength from within by fertilizing your follicles, creating a healthy environment on your scalp to help hair grow faster and reach its maximum potential length. Its soothing formulation reduces irritation and moisturizes the scalp, helping to keep it healthy and improving the volume and feel of your hair. Remember if the earth’s not nourished you¿ll never grow beautiful flowers!”

The container says to use it once a week for maintenance, but we use this product every time we wash our hair, which is every other to every two days.  After you have shampooed your hair, take about an egg size amount of this product and work it into your hair from roots to ends.  Leave this product on for five minutes and then rinse out.  Condition your hair as you normally would afterwards!

Where to Buy:
Ulta: $11.99
Target online: $18.99

Our Thoughts:
We both absolutely love this product!  It has definitely made a positive change in our hair growth.  Since starting to use this treatment,  we have both noticed that our hair is growing quicker and better.  Before using this product,   Rachel tried many other products to try and get her hair to grow because it wasn’t growing at all.  Nothing seemed to be working.  Now since using this hair growth treatment, Rachel’s hair is actually growing to where you can tell a major difference.  This product smells great as well, which is always an added bonus.  It has a sweet, “Lush” like scent.   We highly recommend this product to anyone who is having trouble growing their hair out.  As you can tell, this is definitely a “love it” product for us.

If there are any specific beauty products you would like us to review and give our thoughts on, please comment below and let us know!  We would also love to hear your thoughts on this product if you decide to try it out!

Have a great weekend!
Michelle & Rachel
