What to buy during the Sephora VIB Sale 2017

The Sephora VIB Sale 2017 is here! I’m sharing what you need to buy from this sale, including my all time favorite lipstick. This is the perfect time to stock up at up to 20 percent off and buy great gifts, too. Personally, I buy so many items during this sale because I’m stocking up and try not to buy other items until the next sale. There are a couple of important things to remember so I’m breaking them down here. Read more…

Hustle :: The Power Within and How I Style My Hair

I’m a big believer we all have something to offer this world. We all have to know our value and should bring that to each day. T3 Micro asked me to be part of their Power Within Campaign and I was honored to say yes! This campaign is about sharing our unique story and experiences defining who we are. They asked me what’s my “Empoword”, aka what ignites my inner spirit and inspires me to feel confident. The word empowering me most is hustle.

For as long as I can remember, my parents taught me the best thing I can do is work hard, really really hard. Not only did they teach me this, they lived it. My whole family immigrated to the U.S. from Communist Vietnam. My Dad, a former South Vietnamese soldier was in a concentration camp. When they arrived in Texas, they immediately started working. My Dad worked at 7-Eleven overnight while attending college. My Mom worked as a tailor at the Crescent Hotel while also going to school. They both raised three kids while doing this. When my Dad was able to get a better job, his 7-Eleven had to hire seven people to replace just him. Now that is hustling. You cannot control how much raw talent you have or your abilities, but you certainly can work extremely hard to make up for it. Read more…

My Hair-Care Routine for Sleek + Shiny Hair

You may have seen Selena Gomez and Priyanka Chopra in Pantene Pro-V’s ads with ever so shiny and glossy hair. It made me wonder if the brand had something more to offer. Not to mention, when a shampoo has close to 600 reviews and almost 5 stars, you try it. So I revisited an old favorite, yet this time it has a completely new formula, the Smooth & Sleek Shampoo with its matching conditioner and added it to my hair-care routine.  Read more…
