Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Review + Giveaway!!

Joico's Mission:
We eat, sleep and breathe beauty. We develop innovative, top performing products. We design artistic imagery that inspires creativity. We surround ourselves with the most gifted artists and educators in the industry. We are 100% committed to the advancement of the global salon community. Why? Becausebeauty isn’t our jobit’s our passion.

Joice's Core Values:


We value our people most, so we aim to create an environment that is challenging yet positive. We reward a job done well. We believe that a good idea can come from anywhere, and encourage everyone to have a voice in what we do—no trash talking later about a “better idea.”


We show respect for every individual, regardless of title or office size. We embrace each other’s differences and believe we’re richer as a company as a result of our diversity. We know no one likes criticism, but if at the end of the day it means a better product will be produced and our business partners will get better service, then we’re open to it.


We keep our expectations high yet within the realm of reality, because results speak louder than hype. We subscribe to a good and fair business process. We don’t promise what we can’t deliver, and we don’t expect more in return. We believe in preserving and protecting our shared planet, and ensure that our business practices don’t negatively impact on her well-being.


We play well with others. We understand that growth and profit for our partners equals growth and profit for us, so we put them first and try to understand their needs when making decisions. This isn’t lip service; it’s how we really operate.


We don’t make junk. Our products contain the finest, most beneficial ingredients in the world; shea butter from Africa, orchid oil from Asia—if it’s the best, no continent is too far! We also don’t collect antiques, so we constantly update our technologies and develop new ones to uphold our reputation as the leader in beauty innovation.


We mean business. When we set our sights on something, we do it! We try to be perfect, but when we’re not, we respond quickly and soundly. Playing the blame game and throwing people under the bus wastes valuable time that could be focused on finding a solution.


We don’t break promises. We exist to serve the salon community, period. We do everything within our power to ensure our products stay in professional hands. We don’t say one thing and do another by expecting our partners to uphold the professional code while we conduct business out the back door. That’s not our style.

Etsy Review: Barbara Allen- Fanfare

Barbara's Profile:
Earned a BFA in drawing and painting from UGA. Took major ceramic and sculpture classes as non-degree candidate prior to becoming a potter and co-owner of Second Apple Pottery with 2 friends. Studied metalwork with Barbara Mann from 1996 at UGA evening classes. I love wire and Alexander Calders work. My current focus in metal is etching copper and silver, chasing and raising metal. I have a new series of baskets I'm playing with and boxes are next on the drawing board.

Silver Crochet Bracelet
This is one of the most unique bracelets that I own!
It's amazing how much work really went into it.
The crocheting detail makes it so funky and fun!
Yet it's very wearable as an everyday piece as well!

Revlon Fantasy Lengths Falsies + Shades of U Giveaway!!!

REVLON® Fantasy Lengths™ Maximum Wear eyelashes are a revolutionary way to go from Plain Jane to Naturally Fantastic instantly. Without messy glue to fumble with - you can have perfect lashes that stay where you want them to - even in water!
So I have been reading that the self-adhesive band can be a little tricky...
If you mess up the first time, it loses it's "stickiness"- making it harder to adhere to the skin.

Love the natural gradation of height in these lashes...
Very pretty and natural!

Glamorize your eyes! Instantly get beautiful sexy lashes in a snap with REVLON® Fantasy Lengths™ Maximum Wear Glue On eyelashes. Glue included.

Again, nice and natural!


See how they aren't molding to the form that well?
This means before you apply these, you need to really bend and shape them so they don't do this on your actual eyes!


These are individually separated, I think it's an awesome idea, so you can place them where needed- can't wait to try these!
