don't you worry ABOUT A THING

Hi everyone! I wanted to show you my new diary/planner for the coming 2015 year. 
I'm not exactly a girly type of gal, but I just couldn't resist this cuteness when I came across it. I believe the name of the company that makes these is PonyBrown. It's sort-of a combo between a diary and planner which is why I love this thing. It also comes with a clear cover to protect it. 
It includes a yearly at-a-glance planner to jot down things. So far I've only added some holidays, but will definitely add birthdays later. 
Best of all its undated! You can start it whenever you want. I've decided to wait and start until the new year. This is the monthly view, good for adding special dates, appointments, and major events you want to remember.
And here is the weekly view. This is where the 'diary' part comes in. It's where I plan on elaborating more on appointment dates, maybe add to-do's, and write a small diary entry of that day. I'm the type of person that likes to write on a diary but likes to keep it short. I will also be decorating it with cute washi tape...
...and stickers! How cute are these!? These stickers were included as well. I'm afraid I'll use them all up before next year is over. Sticker shopping is definitely next on my to-do list.

Have a lovely day!

Not Your Mother's® Beach Babe™ Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

Via Walmart

Lately, I've been trying out Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Spray. What I really like about this Beach Babe is that it allows me to add texture to my hair without the use of heat. But just to let you know, if you're going to spray your hair like crazy, just in case I would sure you use a good hair moisturizer or conditioner beforehand especially if you have dry hair. If your hair tends to be on the oily side like mine you should be ok. Other than that, it smells beachy and worked for me.

However, I do have one complaint. I did a preliminary report on EWG's Skin Deep Cosmetic Database and unfortunately it scored a five. I tend to only use items with a score of two or less. One big factor for this score is the fragrance since it is not known whether natural or synthetic ingredients are used for the fragrance part if the product. Depending on this, the score could in reality be lower, but idk. There are also a few ingredients that I think could be omitted from the product.

Bonus: For those who are concerned about animal testing - Not Your Mother's claims that it does not test on animal and that they ..."do not claim this statement on our packing though, because we are currently in the process of registering for all legal and official certifications and logos to go on the packaging and in our company literature." This is definitely an added bonus.

Do I recommend it? Yes if you don't give a care about ingredients and what not. And sure I guess, if you are ok with a Skin Deep score of five which is in the average zone.

Product received complimentary for testing & review purposes from Influenster.
