So, I am applying to be on of the next #SallyCrew influencers for Sally Beauty for textured hair.
I came across a advertisements about the #SallyCrew and felt like I would make a great Sally Beauty influencer. One of my goals is to work with different brands that I believe in and actually use their products as a consumer and influencer.
Sally Beauty is a place I got to shop of all of my hair supplies like brushes, clips, satin hair ties, and other hair care essentials. I was even recently introduced to their COL-LAB makeup line.
Here are 5 reasons why I should be a #SallyCrew influencer for Sally Beauty.
#1 I share my HONEST experience using different natural hair brands and trying new trends to give useful tips for natural hair care.
#2 I have a organic following from the natural hair community and have become a natural hair influencer
#3 My brand “Passionista” has inspired women to rock their natural hair and be confident while doing so.
#4 I don’t just have Instagram friends, I have a community of curl friend online and in real life to talk all things curls with
#5 I AM THE BOMB, because God made me that way!
Okay, Plassionista! I need your help.

I have been obsessed with skincare products that contains Hyaluronic Acid. My go to products containing Hyaluronic Acid have been the Neutrogena Hydro Boost line of water gels, gel creams, and lotions. I recently came across a Garnier product with Hyaluronic Acid and had to try it. This Garner SkinActive Moisture Bomb is one of my new favorites in my daily skincare for my face and neck.
If you don’t know what Hyaluronic Acid is, it is a water holding molecule that provides the most hydration to your skin. It is meant to hydrate and moisturize your skin to the fullest. Any skincare products that have hyaluronic acid in it will leave you skin glowingly flawless. If your skin is lacking hydration and seems to be dry or you have dry patches, pick up a product that contains hyaluronic acid. When you are thirsty would you want to drink water or milk? Personally I would prefer water to quench my thirst. WATER is key for skincare.
I love the feel of the formula. It’s hydrating without being greasy. I see an instant glow after applying it to my face and neck. I have been using this product in my night routine, because it packed with water and no oils. So when I wake up, my skin looks flawlessly hydrated and smooth. The jar is a 1.7oz, which I agree is a great size for this product. I think it’ll take me several months before I run out of the product. It only takes a dot or two on your cheeks to cover your whole face and another dot for the neck.
I would recommend that you consider adding the moisture bomb to your summer skincare routine, or any product with Hyaluronic Acid.
Today, I have a special #curltreat to share with you. I received another Vox Box from Influenster,that is all about CURLS and treating yourself to healthy styles.
What’s in the box?
This Vox Box includes Garnier Fructis Curl Treat Leave- in stylers: Hydrating Butter and Defining Soothie.
Y’all know I love a good hair product and these styler came just in time for the holidays. I decided to do a flexi rod set using both the Hydrating butter and Defining smoothie. I normally don’t purchase Garnier Fructis products for my hair because honestly I didn’t think it was a brand for ethnic natural hair. Now that I’ve tried these curl treats I will be purchasing these products and exploring what other good styling products Garnier Fructis has to offer my thick natural curls.
Both the Hydrating Butter and Defining Soothie formulas are thick and feels very rich. You only need to apply a little bit to each section of hair.
When styling my hair with the flexi rods, I wet my hair with a spray bottle of warm water, them added the Hydrating Butter from root to ends. Before starting to roll each section of hair with the flexi rod, I used my finger to rub the Defining smoothie and a small amount of curl gel to the ends. Once my entire head was rolled and twisted in the flexi rod, I let it air dry over night then sat under the hair drier the next morning for 20 mins (just to make sure my roots were completely dry)
Natural Hair Tip: Make sure your hair is COMPLETELY dry when doing twist out, rod or roller set before untwist or unrolling. It makes a huge different in the final look and how long it will last.
I am amazed at the finished look of this flexi rod protective style. Like I said, I never thought Garnier Frutis products were for my type of hair. There advertisements always have white women with straight hair, I don’t fit that audience so I over look the brand. I would like to see more women of color with different types and styles of hair in their advertisements.
ENTIRE LOOK FOR THE EVENING

So last night I attended the really amazing FREE workshop at General Assembly at Ponce City Market (Atlanta,GA).
General Assembly hosts a variety of courses and workshops. They often host free workshops and panels that are every interactive and informative. I think I’ve attended maybe 4 workshops so far. Each workshop I’ve attended, I’ve have been able to take away something available and apply it to my career and side hustles. This event was a panel driven workshop titled, Girlboss code + digital marketing: A chat with social influencers, shakers and movers.
Most of my subscribers know that I am a full time project manager and a side hustling blogger, microinfluencer, and event planner. As I continue to grow, my goal is start my own creative business. So, I love FREE events that I can attend to teach me something new and network with some dope people.

(Tell me in the comment section below)
There was so much valuable knowledge and information shared in this workshop. It felt like a chip off my shoulder to hear the start up journeys of young successful entrepreneurs and influencers … from quieting your day job to lessons learned from mistakes. I left this workshop feeling a part of a community of girl bosses and inspired to keep pushing. The panel discussion were really a sense of insurance for me, that I am on the right track and I am making the right moves and IT IS going to happen for me and I WILL be all that I can be.
The panelist shared their best advise that no one told them, but they learned:
Have confidence in yourself. #selflove is a BIG DEAL!
Be more kind to yourself.
Get Enough Sleep!
Learn your customer based, streamline your business and stay in your lane.
Recognize when you’ve made it.
Look back at your experience, all the answer are there.
Key takeaways from the Panelist to the audience:
