The Hookup On: Rootie The Rootlifter

I’m not gonna lie guys, I don’t wash my hair a lot. Mostly because it’s not good for my hair, my hair is dry enough as it is, and I kind of hate showering so I just want to get in and out as soon as possible.

My second day hair often falls flat. It already has some dry shampoo in it and is just not feeling the love. That’s when I use Rootie the Rootlifter that was gifted to me from Voloom!

The Rootie essentially looks like a straightener with checkerboard type plates. It works almost like a crimping iron – I know some of you might not know what that is and have never crimped your hair in your life time. Yikes. But, you crimp the under layers of your hair and bring the top layer over it, adding some awesome volume!

This would work great with really thin hair or hair that is often flat at the roots. It works perfectly for my second day hair and I’m thrilled with the results. I also might try it to crimp my hair – we can bring it back into style right???

The Hookup On: Fall Fashion Wishlist

Before I write my fall bucket list (because it’s still summer to me!), I want to talk about my fall fashion and all of the cute dresses I’ll be needing.

I’m a big fan of amazing style for cheap and I am also 100% an online shopper, you’ll never catch me in a mall if I have any say in the matter. So I chose to do my wishlist shopping on Rosegal.

I’ve been meaning to update my closet and try to wear more than jeans and a sweatshirt all the time. Most of my style inspo for the fall includes wearing dresses, cute jackets, and booties. And I’m determined to get some of these items in my closet! The below photo shows all of the cute items I’m looking at specifically.

  1. Long sweater dresses just look sooo cozy.
  2. I have to admit, I have a lot of knee high socks already, but they are necessary for fall!
  3. I love bomber jackets, I can’t believe I don’t already have one! I may or may not have a closet full of this color green, but it’s just such a great color!
  4. Stacking rings are just too cute!

Blush Voxbox Review

I received a box from Influenster this month for free! It was filled with all types of goodies that could come in handy for wedding season – which is perfect for me because I just so happen to be a bridesmaid this summer. I was super excited about getting some cruelty free products as well!


Cruelty free:

Simple Make Up Remover Wipes

Is there anything better for a lazy girl than make up remover wipes? I have pretty sensitive skin, so Simple is a great brand for gentle products that won’t be too harsh on your skin. Plus they’re cruelty free so I 10/10 recommend 🙂

Ardell Lashes

I’ve never used fake lashes before!! But I was super stoked to receive these, they look SO natural and aren’t too chunky on my eye lids. They can be a little sticky, but this was also my first time applying lashes and I wasn’t great at it. They are also cruelty free so I would 9/10 recommend 🙂

Not Cruelty Free:

Pantene Expert Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve made the switch to sulfate free shampoo and conditioner for the most part, as far as I can tell these are not sulfate free. I don’t wash my hair often so using a sulfate product every once in a while won’t kill me, but Pantene is also not cruelty free. Did it get my hair clean? Yes, but I didn’t notice a huge difference. 4/10 recommend

Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant

I have not made the switch to better-for-you deodorant products. I know I need to. Secret is not a cruelty free company. It worked, it kept me dry and nice smelling – but I am also not one of those people who need extra strength deodorant. It was an okay product. 4/10 recommend.

Bonus****

Perfect Details

Perfectdetails.com sells jewelry and accessories for brides and the wedding party. I received a 15% off coupon, but didn’t buy anything because I’m pretty broke. I might pass it on to my family. The stuff on the website looks cute, unique, and fairly priced for fancier products so I would sort of recommend it.
