Online Resources To Help Relieve Stresses From COVID-19!

Covid-19 is a serious virus that has taken most of the world by storm. Businesses are forced to temporarily close, some permanently and millions of job will be lost. We understand that we may not be able to come up with a vaccine or go back in time to stop anyone from allegedly eating a live bat but, we can make it easier, especially for our ladies out there!

Here are a few online resources to make this pandemic a little more tolerable.

Grove Collaborative- Deliver Household Goods

Whether your city, state or country has mandated business closures, stay at home orders or even quarantines we still need our essentials, especially groceries, cleaning supplies, etc. You can order all your cleaning essentials, including toilet paper, paper towels, sanitizing wipes from this online company called Grove Collaborative. Even better, sign up for VIP for free shipping and free monthly gifts! No need to wait in line with potentially ill individuals. Skip the line, SIGN UP HERE

Shipt- Deliver Your Groceries

I barely wanted to leave my house before, let alone with a bunch of potentially sick people breathing on me but I still need to eat, I still need to feed my little family. Instead of leaving the house, I order all of my products from Shipt. I can choose which Publix I want to shop or my personal favorite, Target and someone does the heavy lifting for me! I request my items be left at my door, sanitize my items and back to Netflix. This is also a great option for people who want to make a little extra money. Unfortunately, jobs are scarce and shoppers are making up to $22+ an hour! You can sign up to be a shopper HERE

Madison Reed- Hair Color for Home

Unfortunately, along with many of our other favorite businesses, beauty salons have been ordered to close, Especially in South Florida. Madison Reed allows you to order your hair color online and offers tutorials on how to apply it. Although there are tutorials on how to highlight, I would only recommend ordering base color and overall color/ toners. This will cover up and grays and tone that brassy hair!

Nurx- Online Birth Control

Some Doctors Offices haVE been closed and are only excepting emergencies. Even the offices that are opening, you can risk getting in contact with someone with the virus.

Is Your Dirty Home Causing Anxiety?

Survey says, “66 percent of Americans say a dirty home makes them feel stressed or anxious, 63 percent of Americans claim to do the majority of their home cleaning, and Clutter is cited as the most annoying kind of mess to have in the home. Alex, from Apartment Guide, gets into detail about how dirty homes are causing anxiety.

Cleaning for A Traditional Millennial

“There are two main seasons when cleaning the home is top of mind: Spring and winter. Seventy-six percent of Americans claim to participate in spring cleaning each year, and tackling a dirty home before family visits for the holidays is a dreaded challenge for many.

Dirty homes cause stress

While deep cleaning is popular at these times, regular maintenance is needed throughout the year as well. A dirty home can not only cause the spread of bacteria and allergens, but it’s also a source of emotional tension. When surveyed, 66 percent of Americans said that a dirty homemade them feel stressed or anxious.” Read More

That Purple Shampoo From Target Tho

That Purple Shampoo From Target Tho…

Hello, my blondie’s, I’ve stumbled across the BEST Purple Shampoo from Target and it’s TO. DIE. FOR.  Let me cut to the chase, this purple shampoo and conditioner is absolutely amazing and available at Target. ( as if we didn’t have enough reason to go there.)

It’s L’Oreal Paris EverPure Brass Toning Purple Shampoo and if you think that name is extra you’re completely right. L’Oreal, really? Who comes up with these product names? Anyway, seriously, you must try it. It’s inexpensive, smells great, and truly removes brass tones. L’Oreal is also known for their EverPure Sulfate-Free Shampoo’s which are great for anyone who’s had a Keratin Treatment for the summer.

Just Because Products Are Cheap Does Not Mean They Aren’t Good.

There is a HUGE misconception about getting shampoo and skin care in a department store and I wish so much that people would just stop. I am a licensed New York State Cosmetologist and I can assure you, It’s okay to get shampoo from Target or other type department stores. I wouldn’t say they are all good, definitely do some research but honestly, the L’Oreal EverPure brand is a good one.

Miracle Oil Does Exist:

Okay, this last Target steal is Aussie Miracle Moist Intense Hydration Oil. I’m not sure if you can see but, I’m almost finished with the bottle and my hair has never felt better. I was a little skeptical about this because getting oils from a department store is kind of a hit or miss. Most of them contain alcohols and don’t penetrate the hair. Aussie’s Miracle Moist Oil on the other hand really penetrates the hair and makes a huge difference. I wouldn’t recommend this product for someone who has thin hair because it is a little thick but for someone with dry hair could really benefit from this!

Skin Fusion- Boca

My First Med Spa Treatment and I’m HOOKED.

My Trip to Skin Fusion In Boca

Photography by Amanda Maxine
A few weeks ago I was feeling pretty down about my skin, especially my face. A client of mine, Ms. Holly Mueller assigned me the task of completing some blog articles surrounding her practice. She runs an amazing practice specializing in Botox, Dysport, and other cosmetic treatments. I started doing research to fully understand her services and thought, maybe I can benefit from a little plumping and smoothing. If Holly was in Florida, she’d would have scheduled an appointment with me to see if I was a candidate but, her practice is located in Paradise Valley, Arizona.
My good friend here and client, Brooke from Skin Fusions is an esthetician and miracle-worker! She practices in Boca Raton, Florida and she is more than I can put into words. I made an appointment with her to have her look at my skin. I told her I was thinking of getting Botox or some kind of injectable and wanted her advice.
When I arrived, she had me fill out a quick form that I thought would only go into a filing box. After filling it out, she went over what I filled in and I was surprised how she actually took the time to go over the details. She’s extremely knowledgeable. Not only is Brooke an esthetician, but she’s also a registered practitioner with an RH license.
Brooke also knows I’ve been wanting to do Microblading so we had a quick conversation about that as well and what to expect. After our conversation, she got right to it!
She explained that most of my dissatisfaction in my facial lines and under-eye circles can be from an allergy of some sort, dehydration and/or poor diet, which I will agree is true. She did a quick strip PH test and said my PH was very acidic and this could also be the cause. She further explained that proper skincare, diet, and a few other things should help tremendously. Brooke has a background in holistic medicine and I truly got to take advantage of her knowledge. She truly is a jack of all trades and wants the best for each individual client.
The actual service was fantastic! My skin still feels amazing and I met with her 4 days ago! The Hydraderm Facial really made the difference. It’s an advanced technology that resurfaces the skin to create a smooth, fresh, more youthful glow! She also extracted a calcium deposit and educated me on skin regimes. At one point she noticed I was extremely nervous because I wasn’t too sure what to expect with the extractions but, she walked me through it and it was great! All her products are fantastic and smelled amazing. There is a huge difference in professional products and even my products at home I thought were amazing do no justice. My next step is to buy some products from her for home use and continue seeing her once a month.

Here are Nurx’s services according to their website:

 

Birth Control

Emergency Contraception

HIV Prep

HPV Screening

Stomach Pains

Pregnancy scares

It’s a blessing that something like Nurx has come along with an amazing concept.

Here is how it works:

 

1: YOU choose your medication with the guidance of a Nurx medical professional. Also, if you don’t have insurance, Nurx birth control starts at just $15.00 a month. Now that’s affordable health care!

 

2: A Nurx Medical Professional goes over the request and ensures it is appropriate for you, based on a quick questionnaire. Once approved they will write you a prescription

 

3: No need to pick up your medication at your local pharmacy, you get it delivered straight to you, NO SHIPPING FEE’S!
