Today we're kicking off a new series on my channel called Spring Declutter & Get Organized where I take you through various areas of my house that are lookin' a hot mess. We're decluttering, purging, and spring cleaning to get things in order. Spring is my favorite time to deep clean and re-organize my house, and with the warmer weather approaching, it's so motivating! Hopefully this series will inspire you to tackle those problem areas in your house and simplify your home.

Even better - we're doing it all on a budget! Y'all know me. I'll be sharing tips and tricks to organize without breaking the bank.

For today's video, we're starting off in my master bath. If you saw my Brand New Farmhouse House Tour, you may remember the amazing space we have in our master bathroom. However big drawers = cramming them with more junk.

I wanted to find affordable clear drawer organizers that would fill the entire drawer and fit snug so they wouldn't move around.

Here's what I got:

Watch the video above to see how to declutter and organize your bathroom drawers, start to finish.

Tips and Tricks:
  • Measure the entire drawer, and write down the measurements
  • Draw it out on paper to ensure you are utilizing every inch
  • Line the drawer with textured contact paper so containers don't slide around
  • Remove all items, categorize, purge, and wipe down messy products
  • Place items in the compartments by type
  • Keep most used items up front

Today's video is really going back to the basics with curly hair, and I'm breaking down step-by-step how to wash naturally curly hair. I'm so excited to be adding to my Curly Haircare for Beginners series, where I simplify how to care for your naturally curly hair in a simplified, easy to follow way.

Washing curly hair is unlike regular straight hair. Curls are prone to massive tangles, breakage, more shedding, dryness, and even buildup on the scalp. In this video, I'm going over several tips to prevent these things from happening and sharing some of the best shampoos, conditioners, and co-wash for curly hair.

Achieving a smokey eye look can be challenging if you have hooded eyes, so today I am breaking it down step-by-step in a simplified eye makeup tutorial beginners.

What are hooded eyes?
Hooded eyes usually means your upper lid covers the eyelid, and oftentimes the crease is not visible and deeper set. Asian eyes are also considered hooded.

I have done a video previously sharing a more wearable look, which you can watch that here for more tips for hooded eyeshadow.

This smokey eye look is wearable, and great for nighttime or during the day. I used neutral, soft brows shadows and used a shimmery beige on the lid. I also share how to easily apply eyeliner for hooded eyes, for a smoked out lash line. I finish off with sharing how to apply magnetic eyelashes for a cat eye shape.

-Garnier Curl Treats Review & Routine

VIDEO: Garnier Curl Treats Smoothie & Jelly Review & Routine

Garnier has released its first curly girl method approved stylers - the Curl Treats line. I am so excited that there are now sulfate, silicone, and paraben free styling products from the drugstore by Garnier, and best of all - only $6.99 each. Today I'm testing out the Garnier Curl Treats Smoothie Defining Leave-In Styler and the Jelly Shaping Leave-In Styler.

How to use the Garnier Curl Treats
I started out with clean wet hair, and sectioned my hair off. I first applied the Smoothie and realized I used too much product. A little really goes a long way with these! I then applied the Jelly overtop, and scrunched my hair before moving on to each section. Next I plopped for about 10 minutes and diffused until dry. After my hair was completely dry, I fluffed my hair and scrunched with dry hands to break up the gel cast.

My Results
Since these products are designed for all curl types, from wavy to kinky curls, I think it's best to adjust the amount of product used. For fine and wavy textures, less is more. If you have thick coarse hair, applying more product will give you more hold. However, even though I have 3b fine curly hair and I thought I applied too much, the products did not weigh down my hair at all. I did have a hard gel cast, but I did not have any frizz and my style held up nicely for the next day. It think I would have gotten more volume if I had used less product. One thing I also noticed is how much shine my hair had! Crazy!

Final Thoughts
I was so so happy with my results, and for the price, amazing! You get 10.5 ounces of product for only $6.99, so they are going to last forever! I am so glad that Garnier has created products that are curly girl method approved, and even better - for all curl types. Well done!

I'm curious to test out a wash and go with using just the Jelly. I'll be sure to update you soon on those results.

There is also the Curl Treats Butter Hydrating Leave-In Styler for normal to coarse curls.

Y'all know I'm all about great skincare - it's SO important, not only for great makeup but for feeling your best without makeup! I love treating myself to an at-home facial once a week when I want to relax and unwind. Today I'm taking you through a routine I have been doing recently to help fight signs of aging and acne.

Nurysh Lyft Review

I've been testing out the Nurysh Lyft 7 Function Anti Aging and Skin Rejuvenation Device for a few weeks now, and am already seeing results that I wanted to share with you. The device has functions for cleansing, applying skincare products, anti-aging and anti-acne treatments, and facial massage. What could be better than that?!

The device claims to:
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Tighten skin
  • Reduce puffiness
  • Minimize pores and acne breakouts
  • Lessen appearance of scars

How does it work?
  • Biowave technology stimulates dermal activity by increasing new collagen production and tighten collagen fibers.
  • Galvanic ION+ function pulls dirt and debris from your pores, ION- helps push skincare ingredients deeper into your skin
  • Red LED light therapy increases blood circulation to encourage new cell production
  • Blue LED light therapy kills bacteria and prevents future breakouts
  • Green LED light therapy calms and balances skin tone
Read more about these functions here.

For my routine, I start out with the cleanse function, then the nutrition, and then I finished off with the anti-aging + facelifting function.

My Results:
After using the device about 5 days a week for 3 weeks, I already noticed an improvement in my skin's tone and texture. I actually got a new acne breakout during my last week of testing (hormonal breakout), and the device helped clear it up in just a few days. Typically, my hormonal acne can take a week to heal, and my leftover dark spots last for months. I've already noticed the dark spots fading, my skin feels softer, and my makeup is going on smoother. I plan to continue to test the device (2-3 times week), and update you in a couple months.
