Blog Update

If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram and/or Pinterest, you may have noticed that I’ve been including more home decor related posts. When I first created this blog, my goal was to inspire others to be more receptive to natural/organic brands and to give people with curly hair the confidence they need and deserve. Although this still holds true and is something that I hold dear to my heart, I have also realized that I’m very loyal to products. I’m not high maintenance when it comes to hair and makeup, and once I find something that works for me and that I trust, I don’t continue to try and test different products. In fact, I have a pretty neutral makeup routine that is consistent from day-to-day. Believe it or not, it took me some time to realize this. This is not to say that I’ve sworn off any new brands, but for the most part, my facial, hair and makeup routines have remained the same.

I’ve mentioned something similar in the past, but to me Bashful Beauty Blog is a place for all things beauty. Beauty in fashion, home decor, travel, makeup, hair and just life in general. The reason I’m sharing this with you is because I didn’t want you to feel like I’ve forgotten about my readers or question why I don’t post more frequent makeup and hair posts. Rest assured, those topics are still important to me and will still be featured here.

With that said, I hope you guys will enjoy the new and approved blog.

In the coming weeks, you’ll get a peek inside my kitchen, I’ll share how I celebrated my one year wedding anniversary and I’ll show you the finished product of DIY project I’m currently working on with my husband.

Let me know what you think about the new direction of my blog in the comments below. Also, don’t forget to friend me on Facebook and follow me on Instagram and Pinterest.

Time to grab that camera and travel bag. And remember, live life and do what you love. 

Until next time…

Lighweight Products for Curly Hair

Today I wanted to share two new curly hair products that I’ve been obsessed with lately.

Last month I scheduled a haircut appointment at Christo NYC, home to the Curlisto Natural Curls line, and was introduced to the Defining Lotion and Protein Boost. Believe me when I say that these products are nothing short of amazing. Lightweight, while still providing results.

After washing your hair, spray some Protein Boost on your hair, concentrating on the ends. Then, section your hair into three or four parts so that you can apply the Defining Lotion to additional mini sections. This will allow the product to fully saturate the hair. Even though I have curly hair, I don’t have thick hair (believe it or not), and I still think this step is important.

Although the products are a little pricey, you only need to apply small portions to get results. I’ve had my 16 fl oz bottle for about a month and I’ve only used a quarter of it. At that rate, this should last me about 3 or 4 more months. And if you’re curious, I now have medium length hair since getting my haircut.

Here’s a recent picture, which you’ve probably seen on Facebook and Instagram, if you follow me.

Vanity Knobs and Pulls

We’re halfway through the week, guys! Today I wanted to share an easy way to test out new vanity knobs and pulls in your bathroom before officially committing to drilled holes and screws. Sometimes you find that things look entirely different from what you had envisioned, so this is a no fuss way to ensure that you like it.

The secret is removal adhesive putty!

vanity knobs and pulls 01

My husband and I couldn’t decide between two pulls and one knob for our bathroom vanity, so we bought all three to test out over the weekend. Each item was less than $3 and with Home Depot’s lovely return policy, it made sense to hold off on making a decision.

So here’s a before shot of our vanity.

Now here are the 3 different options. We realized that we placed the pulls and knob too high, but we did position the one we decided to go with a bit lower, which you’ll see in the final look at the end.

Once we picked the one we liked best, the Mr. took his measurements to ensure that everything was aligned, positioned it a bit lower, then drilled the holes.

Although each piece of hardware had something that we liked, we decided to keep it simple since our bathroom is a bit small and we didn’t want to draw too much attention to it. We wanted a clean, simple look.

So without further adieu, here’s the winner…

I hope you like it! This is a great way to try out different looks without ruining your vanity/cabinets. You can find a removal adhesive putty on Amazon, Staples, and Walmart, to name a few, for less than $5.
