DISCLAIMER: This post is not sponsored, I was sent this product in exchange for an honest review and demo.

Hello Beautiful and welcome back to my blog!

I was supposed to get this post up a while ago already, but I was having issues with my wifi. Today I’ll be talking about the BaByliss Twist Secret and showing you 4 different hairstyles which you can create with it.

To be honest, when I was sent this product I was not sure what to make of it as I’ve never seen something this creative. I think the last time I braided my hair was when I was in high school, which was 2 years ago. I took it as a challenge to get back into the groove of beautiful braids but trust me, it was NOT an easy task.

Firstly, the product is very small and convenient for travel. The only problem is that the product is battery operated. This is a downside due to the fact that should your batteries die, it’s a hassle to go out and find batteries. I personally would have liked if it had a cord, but the product does have batteries in the box which is a bonus.

Next, the battery cover has a screw on it. I was very unhappy when I wanted to play around with it and found that I needed a screwdriver in order to get the product to work. This is another inconvenience because nobody carries a screwdriver with them when they travel (or is it just me that doesn’t?). Crisis averted, I just called up my dad and asked him to open it for me.

The product has 2 levers which you need to push in order to insert your hair into the strands. The portion which holds your hair is very small which means that you can only work in small sections and is not convenient for bigger braided hairstyles. Other than that, you insert your hair into the product, push the power button up to twist the strands and push it down to braid it.

It is a pretty complicated little tool, is it worth it though?

For people who love experimenting with hairstyles, it’s a pretty cool gadget! The only things to consider is the screw, the amount of hair you can work with and the fact that it is battery operated. Other than that? I’d rate it a solid 7/10.

Here are the 4 hairstyles I created, feel free to watch the video to see exactly how to re-create them. If you watch the video, please don’t forget to like and subscribe!

My Night Routine ft. Lux Body Wash

Hello beautiful and welcome back to my blog!

–video is still loading, I will come back to insert it here. I was just scared I was going to miss my deadline–

I thought that I’d share my night routine and what goes into my relaxation process. I am a home body and I really enjoy coming home after a long day and simply winding down. Let me know if you enjoy being at home too!

So after a long day the first thing I like to do is get inside and change into some comfortable clothes which include: boyfriends hoodie and leggings. I then like to curl up on my couch and watch some TV (if there isn’t a bunch of nonsense playing) and allow my brain to unwind.

Then often times hunger strikes so I like to opt for healthy meals at night, I very rarely eat meat because I feel that it makes me sick. Some of my favourite foods to eat include: mac and cheese with a side of vegetables or seafood paella. If I feel like eating out then I opt for the Cobb Salad from Kauai, no egg.

Bath time is my favourite time of the night and I love using the Lux Body Wash. Rubybox was kind enough to send me a bunch of these (As I mentioned, I am having a giveaway.) and I love both scents. The purple is Sheer Twilight with fragrance pearls of Black Orchid and Juniper oil. I love using this when I go out because I always get complimented on the fragrance. If I’m staying home or cuddling with Matthew for a movie night then I opt for the pink which is Soft Touch with silk essence and pink floral infusion. It leaves my skin noticeably softer and always makes me smell so fresh and soft.

After a bath I like to make myself a nice cup of tea for when I watch YouTube videos in bed and then I like to turn off all my electronics at least an hour before bed (I have the most vivid dreams and if I watch something weird on YouTube I will be dreaming about it later that night).

And that is my night routine! As I mentioned, there will be a video which I will come back to insert but I did have a deadline and could not risk missing it.

-DISCLAIMER: This post was NOT sponsored, these products were sent to me by RubyBox Beauty in exchange for a review HOWEVER I have been using Lux already, so it was already incorporated into my night routine xo.
