Hi Guys!

Today I want to share with you a little bit of advice/encouraging words for those who are considering a career in the Beauty industry, or perhaps you are already working as one.

Most parents usually encourage us to study something “Honorable” like Medicine, Law, Engineering, etc. This is definitely not a bad thing, those are wonderful careers. However, no job or career is less honorable as those I mentioned. In my case, I had a passion for beauty, fashion, and computers since I was a little girl. My parents never told me what I needed to study; they did want me to choose what I wanted. Yet, I was encouraged to study something that would be profitable and long lasting. After graduating High School, I had a few choices in mind but I decided to go with the fastest and most profitable at that time. I started College right away seeking a career in Nursing. After a few months in, I realized Nursing was not for me. Beauty and Fashion were in my mind, but I didn't think I could make a career out of them. After a few months, I decided to go with my other passion, Computers. It was definitely the hardest one, but it was something I did enjoy. Meanwhile, my passion for Beauty and Fashion grew more and more. I wanted to learn more about makeup, so I started watching YouTube Videos.

Since the first YouTube Video I watched, my passion just exploded! I was learning more and more every day. After a few years of learning about professional makeup and Fashion, I started my own Blog and YouTube channel. This is how Pink Orchid Makeup was born. It is really an amazing feeling to be able to share with others this great passion and talent. Lots of women are in great need of someone who can encourage them and lift their self-esteem. That is exactly what I do at Pink Orchid Makeup. I talk about all things Beauty, Makeup, Fashion, but most importantly Internal Beauty. Beauty starts from the inside and it is reflected on the outside 1 Peter 3:3-4.

I now have a career in Computers which I love, but I was also able to fulfill my passion for Makeup and Fashion through my blog and YouTube. Beauty, Makeup, and Fashion are real careers. Don't ever let anyone say that they are not. If you feel you have the same passion and talent go for it!
 
Some time ago I heard a phrase which has stuck with me since: Make your paycheck your passion! 

If you don’t know where to start, visit a cosmetology school website to find out more information on how to get started. I personally have heard great things about the Regency Beauty Institute and that is the reason I accepted to promote this post. Regency Beauty Institute is a Cosmetology school. This institute is one of the leading cosmetology schools in the nation. They have 88 campuses across the country and have been able to grow over the years by taking an innovative approach to learning and helping students to turn their creativity into beautiful careers. Also they started this campaign called #ShareBeauty. I think they are doing an amazing job encouraging women to make our own world a more beautiful place! Follow Your Dreams! Never quit!

PRODUCT REVIEW: Kimble Beauty Brazilian Nut & Acai Berry Conditioning Masque And Water Proof Shower Cap


PRODUCT REVIEW: Kimble Beauty Brazilian Nut & Acai Berry Conditioning Masque And Water Proof Shower Cap

*Para ver esta publicación en Español, usa el botón del traductor de Google*

DISCLAIMER: I received these products for review purposes. However, my opinion is based on my own personal experience with the product/service and it will never be influenced by a company.

Product Details:

"Kimble Beauty Brazilian Nut & Acai Berry Conditioning Masque - Restores Dry and Damaged Hair

Kimble Beauty Shower Cap - Incredibly cute shower cap from Kim Kimble is made from durable, waterproof fabric to protect styling.

About the Brand:

A Los Angeles native, Kimberly Kimble is one of the most sought after hair stylists in the entertainment industry. With dozens of televised shows, movies, and magazines under her belt, Kimberly Kimble beautifies some of the hottest celebrities today. Her work can be seen in television, concerts, magazines, music videos, film and beauty expos. Through herdedication, talent, and skill, she has worked with such high profile celebrities as Beyonce Knowles, Mary J Blige, Garcelle Beauvais, Shakira, Gabrielle Union, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Serena and Venus Williams. Hair styling was not unfamiliar to Kimberly Kimble, as she comes from a long line of hairstylists. Kimberly’s mother (Jasmine Kimble) and grandmothers (Lynette Murray and Astra Payne) all were hair care professionals. She was drawn to the art and skill involved in hairstyling and soon realized her need to create with her hands. Her natural affinity as an artist gave Kimberly a unique edge that sets her apart from other stylists. Kimberly was trained at the Universal College of Beauty of Los Angeles in Leimert Park, Culver City College of Beauty, Vidal Sassoon Academy, and Dudley Cosmetology University in North Carolina.

Through her experience working on film and television, Kimberly realized a need for styling products that would allow her to style hair that had endured the long hours of filming and keeps it looking fresh and healthy. Kimberly’s latest development is a hair product line called “KIMBLE BEAUTY™,” a full line of shampoos, conditioners, scalp treatments, styling products, pomades & hair/body soaps for both men and women.

Because of Kimberly’s expertise in extensions, she has included products for extension care in her line as well. She has put together a complete line of hair specialty goods from hairpieces, clip-in weaves, wigs, falls, ponytails and extension hair. Her line of hair care will procure and process the highest quality hair from the international market. Kimberly also provides a line of maintenance products to care for the hair. With her successful West Hollywood Salon and a new product line, Kimberly Kimble continues to beautify the world one head at a time."

My Opinion:
Amazing Amazing Amazing Products! I totally loved both products. The Brazilian Nut & Acai Berry Conditioning Masque feels like one of those conditioners you get when you dye your hair at home. It leaves my hair so soft, silky, and shiny. This masque is definitely amazing. I have tried other products with Acai Berry, but I never tried Brazilian Nut before. The combination of the two work amazingly for my hair. After using the mask for a couple of weeks, I noticed a great improvement on my ends. This mask helped me repair the damage I had, as well as helped mend split ends.

The Kimble Beauty Shower Cap is literally the BEST SHOWER CAP I EVER tried! Yes! It is that good. I never knew what a good or bad shower cap was until I tried this one. This Shower cap is definitely waterproof.
Not even 1 single hair gets wet with this shower cap. The material feels very durable and solid. The elastic band is hard enough to keep the shower cap in place, but it does not hurt your head. I also loved the design! I definitely recommend this one.

Kimble Beauty Brazilian Nut & Acai Berry Conditioning Masque

PROS: Leaves hair shiny, silky, soft, repairs damage, repairs split ends.
CONS: NONE!

Kimble Beauty Shower Cap

PROS: Waterproof, Solid Material, Washable, Secure.

RECAP: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami 2014 + Allure VIP Lounge #MBFWSWIM

RECAP: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami 2014 + Allure VIP Lounge #MBFWSWIM

*Para ver esta publicación en Español, usa el botón del traductor de Google*

Hi Guys!

As promised, here are the details of my experience at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim Miami 2014 + Allure VIP Lounge.

The event lasted from July 17, 2014 to July 21, 2014 and it took place in South Beach, Florida.

I was only able to attend 1 day which was Sunday July 20, 2014. I could not get tickets to the actual show, but I was invited to the Allure Magazine VIP Lounge at the SLS Hotel in South Beach. I went with my friend Frances from www.trueunfadingbeauty.com. We arrived to Miami Saturday night, and stayed at the Cambria Suites Miami Airport Blue Lagoon. I really enjoyed my stay at this Hotel. It was modern, clean, great location, and the bed was very comfortable! I totally recommend it.

The day of the event, we stopped by the Dolphin Mall on our way to South Beach. The Dolphin Mall is one the most popular Malls in Miami so it was very packed. The weather was very bad that day :( It was raining and extremely hot at the same time! Thanks God the rain stopped when we got to South Beach.

The Allure VIP Lounge event was very nice. They had different booths setup for the brands sponsoring the event. They also gave us a goody bag worth $102.24.

The contents of the bag were:

Catwalk By Tigi Session Series Salt Spray $19.99
Covergirl Mirror $4.00
Allure Magazine $3.99
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes $2.00
Tweezerman Harajuku Lovers Design Series Slant Tweezers $38.30
Simple Protecting Light Moisturizer Spf 15 $9.99
Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Spf 40 $8.00
Shiseido Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Spf 42 $8.00
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion Spf 50+ $8.00

Value: $102.24

Pictures of the items are listed below!

Overall, I do not recommend going on a Sunday unless you have tickets to the actual fashion show. Even then, I think the best stuff happen on Fridays and Saturdays. My expectations were to meet other bloggers, see some Street Style Fashion, interview some people, as well as take pictures. However, we did not see many people outside the event area. Regardless, I used to live in Miami so it was nice going back and taking a mini vacation. We really had fun with everything we did :D
