Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Smooth and Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré

Ricky’s NYC is this amazing beauty store that has everything beauty related at your fingertips. From hair care, skincare, makeup, and accessories this place has it all. For anyone who is a beauty junkie this store is like Disneyland! You can spend so much time browsing through products. They carry many drugstore brands and even higher-end brands like French brand Embryolisse. I definitely recommend going to this store if you’re in New York. 
I’ve been wanting to buy Embryolisse’s Lait-Crème Concentré for a while now — since August to be exact. After not being able to find the smaller version I was finally able to find it at Ricky’s. This Embryolisse cream is multipurpose. It can be used as a makeup primer, a makeup remover, or as a moisturizer. Since the weather is getting colder I’ve been using this product as a nighttime moisturizer. After I cleanse my skin and remove all of my makeup I apply this cream all over my face. It leaves my skin soft, hydrated, and the smell is so delicate and lovely. Using this really does make me feel French!
I’m also always on the lookout for any frizz-fighting conditioners therefore Aussie’s 3 Minute Miracle Smooth conditioner was something that I definitely needed to buy. Overall, Aussie products are great and I’ve used their original 3 minute conditioner which gave me awesome results. This newer version though helps fight frizz for 24 hours! After washing my curly hair I applied this conditioner and I did not rinse it off. I left it on and then styled my hair as usual. My hair felt soft and my curls were more defined. 
I’m already making a list of other products that I want to buy for the next time I stop by Ricky’s. Have any of you been to a Ricky’s? Have you tried any of these products? Follow me on Bloglovin!

August Wishlist


The month of August is right around the corner and there are some great exciting things happening in the upcoming weeks which I will talk about later on in the blog. Meanwhile here is my wishlist for August:

1. I’ve been needing a new pair of Converse since forever. My current Converse are navy blue but I think it’s time to change things up a bit and go for a crisp white color. Plus my navy pair is so old; I think I’ve had them since I was in high school. 

2. Okay major coveting with this Rebecca Minkoff bag. I want it so bad but I keep searching and waiting for it to go on sale. The original price is not super expensive but they always have Rebecca Minkoff sales in sites like Gilt or Nordstrom. I just have to keep an eye out for it. 

3. When I was in high school and college organization saved my life. Planners were crucial for me to stay on top of deadlines and assignments. Although I’m not in school anymore this cute planner can come in handy once in a while. It comes with fun quotes, ideas, stickers and an inside pocket for paper notes. 

4. One of my favorite things is to try out new beauty products. If it’s considered a cult favorite among celebs then it makes me want to try it even more. Enter model Chrissy Teigen who recently share with Us Weekly what is currently inside of her bag. And of course this all purpose cream was among her essentials. Apparently this super rich cream can be used as a moisturizer, cleanser, and to tame flyaways. Score!

5. Jenny Mollen is seriously one of my girl crushes. She is hilarious and I love following her own Instagram. Warning: she can be a little raunchy but nonetheless tasteful. Her new book is one that I definitely have to pick up soon.

6. Saw this cute tee online and thought it was adorable. Who doesn’t like unicorns?
