A Must-Have for Everyone: Healthy Human Insulated Water Bottles (Giveaway)

shop with kendallyn bottle

Be a Healthy Human. Stay Hydrated!

Being a water fanatic, I always keep a bottle of it within arms reach at all times. For most of the summer I’ve been using plastic water bottles that inevitably get warm just after an hour or so once taken out of the fridge. That’s always super annoying considering I can’t stand the taste of luke-warm water. Yuck! Thankfully after Discovering Healthy Human Insulated water bottles and cups, I haven’t had to worry about my water going warm. In fact, I’ve noticed I’ve been staying more hydrated since discovering their brand.

Healthy Humans has created water bottles and cups that keep liquids cold or hot for super long periods of time and are made out of materials that don’t contain any chemicals that can get into the liquids we drink like some bottles on the market. I have the beautiful blue 21 oz Stainless Steel Bottle in the color “Glacier” and it has been my newest obsession that I cannot leave the house without.

The first time I used it, I decided to take it on a beautiful 15 mile hike up to Mt. Hood. The hike was so gorgeous! It was very tiring because it was mostly up hill, but it was so easy to take my Healthy Human bottle because it clipped right onto to my backpack with a little caribiner. Throughout the day, we stopped to take some water breaks and every time I went to take a sip of my water, I was pleasantly surprised with how cold it was! The ice cubes didn’t even melt whatsoever!

shop with kendallyn bottles

There’s simply nothing better in this world than ice-cold water that actually stays cold all day! Healthy Human water bottles not only keep liquids cold or hot all day, they also have some other pretty cool features.

Features:

  • Double Walled Vacuum Insulated
  • 18/8 Stainless Steel
  • Keeps Liquids Hot for 12 Hours
  • Keeps Liquids Cold for 24 Hours
  • Keeps Original Liquid Flavors
  • Sweat Free Design
  • Leak Proof
  • BPA Free, No Toxins
  • Includes Caribiner

Another thing that I am very impressed with that isn’t mentioned too much is the incredible durability of the bottle. During the hike my bottle got bumped around a lot on rocks and trees and when I got home I realized there are literally no scrapes or scuffs on the bottle whatsoever! I am just blown away at the quality of each Healthy Human bottle.

shop with kendallyn bottles

Healthy Humans has made it their mission with helping people to stay hydrated, safely. I love the commitment they have made to providing people with a high quality, chemical-free, reusable alternative to potentially cancer-causing plastic water bottles. I highly recommend these fantastic bottles to anyone and everyone. It is so important to constantly stay hydrated and healthy human bottles make it all the more easy! They are absolutely perfect for the adventurer, traveler, or simple water drinker. It’s a little early in the year, but I also think that these would make the most perfect gift for a loved one this upcoming holiday season. What a perfect gift to give someone-the gift of endless, healthy hydration!

shop with kendallyn

Being someone who has naturally really wavy hair, I find it nice to have sleek, straight hair once in awhile. Good thing my old straightener is just about done for, because I got the wonderful chance to review a beautiful straightener from Cricket, a one stop site that has everything a hair stylist or enthusiast could ever dream of!

Among all of the high-end brushes, blow dryers, and even professional hair cutting shears, I got the chance to review the Chrome Beauty Hardware Pro-Styling Iron, and let me tell you, it is absolutely amazing! Look at how pretty and sleek it is!shop with kendallyn sleek

After seeing how gorgeous this iron is in person, the second thing I was extremely happy to see when the Beauty Hardware Iron came in the mail is that it heats up to 425 degrees. Having thicker hair means I always have to crank up the heat a little bit, so it’s nice this straightener heats up that much!

shop with kendallyn sleek

Another thing that I love about this glamorous hair iron, is that it has cushioned metal plates so when you straighten your hair, each strand glides through the plates without tugging or snagging on hair.

Here are a few more awesome features that the Beauty Hardware Flat Iron has:

  • 1″ ceramic plates
  • Tourmaline & Ion Technology
  • Heats up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Floating Cushion Plates
  • Rapid Heat Up
  • Beautiful Faux Chrome Finish
  • Turns off automatically after 30 minutes

The Beauty Hardware Iron is seriously one of the best flat irons that I’ve ever tried. Not only does is straighten my hair extremely fast, it makes my hair look healthy and super soft! My hair went from a frizzy, wavy mess to super sleek and shiny! I highly recommend this straightener to anyone who loves straightening their hair.

Au Naturale Cosmetics: Natural Makeup Look + Review

shop with kendallyn makeup

“Just Wing it. Life, Eyeliner, Everything.”

Have you ever taken a moment to look at the labels (if there even are any) on any of your makeup products? It may shock you that a lot of makeup brands, even well-known brands, use ingredients that can be bad for our skin and health over time. Lately I’ve been more conscious about what goes on my face and its been extremely easy! Thankfully Au Naturale used all-natural ingredients and is conscious with every single ingredient that goes into their makeup- that’s why I love using their products!

Today I wanted to share my top favorite products from Au Naturale and show you my finished look using all of their products! I want to show you that all-natural products work just as well as any!

shop with kendallyn makeup

Organic Cream Foundation in Porcelain, $38

First thing, I am actually very surprised that Au Naturale makes a foundation light enough for my skin, as it can be difficult at times trying to find a shade that doesn’t look like I’m wearing an orange mask. It’s wonderful to be able to apply foundation and have it blend in perfectly with my skin.

Infused with skin loving ingredients like jojoba, lavender, and other light oils, this foundation nourishes the skin while providing a nice creamy finish. I like that it doesn’t feel too heavy or greasy. Another nice thing about this foundation is that since it is so highly pigmented, a little goes a long way, that way not a lot has to be applied to achieve full coverage.

shop with kendallyn makeup

Organic Cream Bronzer Stick $32

Made with shimmery mica, this beautiful bronzer stick gives the skin a perfect sun-kissed glow any time of the year. My favorite thing about this bronzer is that it has just the right amount of shimmer and blends into the skin effortlessly. I personally like to apply it to the areas of my face that get the most sunlight like the top of my forehead, below me cheekbones, and nose. You can never go wrong with wanting a little sun-kissed glow- without having to damage your skin by traditional sun tanning!

shop with kendallyn makeup

 

Lip & Cheek Tint in Parisian Pink, $22

This highly pigmented lip and cheek tint is a keeper because it’s pretty and so versatile! Infused with skin-loving oils like jojoba, pomegranate, and avocado, it glides on smoothly while giving the face some extra nourishment. I like blending a small abound on the apples of my cheeks and also dabbing it onto my lips for some added color.

I like it because it isn’t too over the top with pigmentation and look super natural on any skin tone! It’s the perfect rosy pink.

shop with kendallyn makeup

The Mixologist Lipstick, $25

Now this lipstick is a game changer. Made to wear alone or over any lipstick, the Mixologist transforms any lip color into a shimmery pearlecent pout! And what’s even more amazing about the Mixologist is that it doesn’t just stop as a lipstick. This stuff can be used to create dimension to not just your lips, but also as a highlighter for the cheekbones, eyebrows, and anywhere that needs some extra highlighting! This is probably my favorite product from Au Naturale!

shop with kendallyn makeup

This is my finished “natural” look using all of Au Naturale’s products:

I love Au Nautrale’s wonderful products and highly recommend them for anyone who wants to take a few steps closer to living a healthy lifestyle. All of the products that I’ve tried work amazingly and just as well as a ton of other brands of makeup brands I’ve used in the past- maybe even a little better! It’s truly a great feeling knowing that everything that goes on my face is healthy and natural. Thanks Au Naturale!

Revive Brittle Hair with Mixed Greens Hair Care from MOP (Review)

shop with kendallyn mop hair care

The Seasons are Changing and so is My Hair

As it’s slowly getting colder, it seems like my hair is going crazy! I constantly give my hair tender loving care, but it seems like this time of year my hair goes through phases of becoming really dry and brittle towards the end of summer. Does anyone else have this problem?! Lately I’ve been trying out products that seem to be helping with my dry strands, and so I thought I would give MOP Hair Care a try to see if it helps my hair out as well!

The last few times I’ve washed my hair I’ve been using the MOP Mixed Greens Hair Care System, and I’ve been really happy with how soft and healthy my hair has been feeling! The amazing Mixed Greens Hair Care system includes the Shampoo ($20), Conditioner ($22), and Leave-in Conditioner ($22). All of the products are formulated to moisturize and soothe dry, brittle hair.

shop with kendallyn mop hair care

The Mixed Greens products are like the perfect “dressing” for the hair. Each product contains hair-loving plant derived ingredients like olive oil, cucumber, and apple cider vinegar. After using the hair care system a few times, I’ve noticed a huge difference with how soft, shiny, and clean my hair has felt. The shampoo lathers up like a dream while the conditioner soaks deep into the hair making it feel like silk. After washing and conditioning my hair, applying a small amount of the leave in conditioner seals in moisture without weighing down hair. The products each have such a sweet, light scent that leaves my hair smelling clean all day long.

I am in love with the results of using MOP’s wonderful Mixed Greens products and recommend them to anyone whose hair needs a little extra tender loving care!

Keep Color-Treated Hair Vibrant this Fall with ABBA Hair Care

hair shop with kendallyn

“Invest in your hair. It’s the crown that you never take off.”

Fall is sure creeping up fast! I can already see the seasons transitioning right before my eyes! Another thing I’ve noticed lately is that a lot of people are “transitioning” their hair color! It must be that time of year where a lot of people ditch their light summer hues to darker tones for the colder months!

I’m sure you all know that transitioning to deeper, darker tones or any hair color means switching up your traditional shampoo and conditioner, right? In order to keep darker hues vibrant, it’s important to use a shampoo and conditioner that are gentle on color treated hair. So for all of you ladies and gentlemen that are out there looking for a hair care duo that locks in lasting color, I highly recommend ABBA’s Color Protection Shampoo, Conditioner and Smoothing Blow Dry Lotion. This stuff is amazing and keeps hair looking beautiful all season long!

shop with kendallyn

Color Protection Shampoo ($17) and Conditioner ($18)

Being someone who has color treated hair myself, the color protection shampoo and conditioner has literally transformed the quality of my hair-without lifting the color. Made with 100% pure botanicals including coconut, sage, and ABBA’S special ProQuinoa Complex, this shampoo and conditioner deeply cleanses and nourishes each strand of hair without lifting or fading the color.  My color treated hair went from being dry and brittle, to extremely soft and shiny. I can’t stop feeling my hair whenever I use it!

Smoothing Blow Dry Lotion ($18)

Now this yummy smelling Blow Dry Lotion is the perfect sidekick to the Color Protection shampoo and conditioner. Infused with mango extract, ProQuinoa Complex, and barley protiens, this Blow Dry Lotion smoothes even the curliest of hair. I  have honestly always dreaded blow drying my hair, but this stuff makes it so much easier.

smoothing-blow-dry-lotion-150mlI seriously never knew my hair could look and feel so amazing! Having been around for around 25 years and knowing a thing or two about what works best for hair, ABBA’s products contain nothing but the purest ingredients that are 100% vegan and gluten-free. These ABBA products really have transformed my hair for the better and are honestly some of the best hair care products I have ever tried. I highly recommend this stuff to anyone who is trying to preserve their hair color this season because you can’t go wrong with ABBA!

The Best Hair Products that Tame Wild Curls: Ouidad Professional Hair Care (Review)

shop with kendallyn hair

“Embrace what you were born with because it’s beautiful.” -Shay Mitchell

 See the Full Potential of Those Beautiful Curls with Oiudad

Being someone who ALWAYS styles their hair to be either stick-straight or curled, you’d probably never guess my natural hair type. Truth is my hair is naturally fluffy, frizzy, and wavy. I remember growing up and always hating my hair, wishing that it was straight. It seems like we always want what we don’t have, right?!

Now that I’m 20 and have been styling my hair for some time now, it seems like it’s harder to wear my hair natural because it just looks even more frizzy and damaged. Good thing I got the opportunity to test out some products from Ouidad, because it has sure changed my outlook on the natural hair I was born with!

shop with kendallyn hair

Ouidad is a professional hair care company that has products for all kinds of different textured hair types from loose waves to kinky-coiled curls. After getting to try out a few of their products, I am above and beyond excited the share which products worked best for me! Here are my favorites:

Curl Essentials Trial Kit, $36.00

shop with kendallyn hair

This wonderful trial kit is absolutely perfect if you want to test out Ouidad Products but aren’t sure if you want to buy the full size products. This specific travel set contains everything you need for your curls to look and feel their best. It also comes in handy as perfect travel sized products if you are one who travels frequently!

This set includes four 2.5 ounce bottles that include the following:

  • Water Works Clarifying Shampoo
  • Moisture Lock Leave in Conditioner
  • Botanical Boost Curl Energizing & Refreshing Spray
  • Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel

I’ve found that all of these products work absolutely amazing for my hair type. Each product goes hand-in-hand to help revive and replenish each and every damaged strand of hair. I noticed that is leaves my hair feeling super soft and actually separates my usually frizzy, tangled curls when my hair air dries. This kit is definitely a must-try for anyone who wants to help tame their natural textured hair!

Wave Create Texture Putty, $26.00

shop with kendallyn hair

A little goes a long way with this deliciously-scented hair putty. I love that it effortlessly creates beautiful texture and waves without the stickiness, weight, or stiffness of some products I’ve used in the past.

Benefits:

  • Molds and shapes curls without leaving residue
  • Super-pliable formula
  • Created textured looks

After washing and conditioning my hair, I like to put a small amount onto my hands, and lightly scrunch my hair encouraging more wave formations. I then let my hair air dry leaving beautifully formed waves without the residue of a gel or crunch of a mousse!

Wave Create Sea Spray, $26.00

shop with kendallyn hair

It is so simple to create perfect beachy waves using the Wave Create Sea Spray. Containing completely natural sea water and salt, this spray effortlessly creates gorgeous wind tossed waves without leaving the hair stiff and feeling dried out.

Here are some of its benefits:

  • Creates waves while keeping curls soft and nourished
  • Won’t leave curls and waves crunchy and stiff
  • Locks in beachy style

Honestly, I was a little hesitant to try out this spray at first fearing that it would make my hair feel super dry and brittle like some salt sprays have done in the past but after trying it out, I am in love! I simply spritz it on my damp hair after showering and it somehow makes my waves even wavier!

Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel, $26.00

shop with kendallyn hair

This is probably one of my favorites from Oiudad because it works so well! My hair is always so frizzy and huge so this really does wonders!

Benefits:

  • Prevents frizz, unwanted volume & flyaways
  • protects curls and hair color
  • gentle, sulfate-free formula

I like to put this in my hair on the days that my hair looks extra frizzy or when I know it’s going to be a humid day-which is almost everyday considering that I live in rainy Oregon. I simply squeeze a small amount out and run my fingers through my hair gently to separate and smooth each curl. I like that by just using a small amount, this gel locks in moisture and softness all while keeping the frizz away. It’s definitely a lifesaver for people who live in humid places and struggle with combating their unruly hair!

Curl Last Flexible-Hold Hairspray, $20.00

shop with kendallyn hair

A lot of the hairsprays I’ve used in the past either left my hair feeling crunchy, stiff, and me feeling like I need to wash it out immediately because I couldn’t stand how my hair felt. With this Flexible-Hold Hairspray, it is the complete opposite.

Key Benefits:

  • Isn’t sticky, flaky, or crunchy
  • Allows hair to be customized and layered, yet breathable
  • Adds healthy shine and movement

Most hairsprays just lay on the outer layer of hair leaving it crunchy, but this Oat Protein and Sunflower oil-infused hairspray sets deep into the hair working each individual strand from the inside out. My favorite thing about this spray is that it leaves my hair feeling soft and touchable all while doing its job of securing an all-day hold!

 

Remember: Always Embrace What You’re Born With!

I’ve honestly grown to love and embrace my textured hair thanks to Oiudad. It has made it so much easier to wear my hair all natural. I really appreciate that Ouidad specifically formulates their products for so many different hair types. I highly recommend giving Ouidad a try so people with textured hair can see their hair’s full potential! Thank Oiudad!

For the Adventurers: Delicious Nut Blends from Setton Farms (Review)

Shop with Kendallyn Nut Blends

When I think of nut blends or trail mixes, I automatically think of my favorite places to hike. When I think about hiking, I also think about all the delicious trail mixes I’ve eaten!  Since I’m a pretty simple woman, I usually stick to the classic mix of cashews, peanuts, raisins, almonds, and chocolate candies. Recently though, I got the opportunity to try out other nut blends that are far from any trail mixes I have tried before. I got the wonderful opportunity to try out different nut blends from Setton Farms-and I’m a little obsessed!

Setton Farms is located in Terra Bella, California and known for their phenomenally delicious pistachios. Aside from all of their pistachio products, they recently came up with some seriously addicting trail mix or as they call it, “Blends”. Here are all of their delicious combos:

Pistachio Berry Blend

Delicious and addicting! This phenomenal mix of tart berries and nuts are the perfect combination! The white chocolate is one of my favorite parts about this blend because it really satisfies any sweet tooth craving!

Bold Summer Nail Colors that POP

This summer, I’ve been all about rocking bold nail colors. Life is simply too short to have boring ones- at least that’s what I say! Today I wanted to share some thoughts about my newly discovered favorite bold nail colors by Morgan Taylor that are sure to make a statement! Enjoy!

Street Beat Summer 2016 Collection

This gorgeous eye-catching summer collection is one of my absolute favorites because they are perfect for the fun-loving soul! All six of the stunning colors were inspired by the vibrant street art and hip hop beats that fill the streets of New York, NY. Aren’t they to die for?!

A Very Nauti-Cal Girl 2016 Collection

These four bold colors were inspired by summer sailing in the deep blue sea. “This collection was developed for the beach babe who is the captain of her own style and enjoys expressing her personality through her nails.” says CEO and Founder of Morgan Taylor, “Each shade will help her cruise through the warmer seasons!”.

Here are the new gorgeous Naut-Cal shades:

I love the Nauti-Cal collection because they are so bold and go so well together! I really am beyond impressed with Morgan Taylor nail lacquers. Morgan Taylor really has one of the best kinds of nail lacquer formulas I’ve used because it dries fast, doesn’t chip as fast like most nail polishes I’ve used in the past and are extremely vibrant.

A Summer Essential: Circle Beach Blankets from B.L.I.S.S. Review + GIVEAWAY

shop with kendallyn

Round beach blankets. Where have they been all my life??? I’m not exactly sure how long they’ve been around, but it seems like I’ve never heard of them until recently. I guess I have just been living under a rock. Ever since discovering them on Instagram and Pinterest, I have been wanting to get my hands on one of those gorgeous pieces of heaven for my trip to Oahu, Hawaii! Now since I have one, I have labeled these beach blankets as a major summer essential!

Thankfully before my trip, I found Beach Life is so Sweet, a company who not only sells these gorgeous beach blankets at a reasonable price, but some of the money spent on them go directly to different charities. That means you can feel good about shopping while contributing to different causes. How sweet is that?!

I got the wonderful opportunity to review the beautiful Shibori Blue Tassle Beach Blanket ($65) and let me tell you, I am SO in love with everything about it! Look at the beauty! Measuring about 6 1/2 feet across, this beauty is big enough to fit a few people on it. It’s perfect for the beach, picnics, concerts and more!

shop with kendallyn essential

Made with 100% handwoven cotton from India, each blanket from B.L.I.S.S. is hand selected and a unique work of art. There are SO many different patterns to choose from. I chose the gorgeous Shibori blanket because it’s just my style. My favorite thing about it is the long white tassels because they give it that care-free boho look! So pretty!

shop with kendallyn essential

My Shibori blanket really was such an essential on my trip to Hawaii because it made the perfect little spot on the beach to relax, protected me from the super hot sand, and made a nice towel after I was done swimming at the beach! I am in love with my B.L.I.S.S. blanket! An even cooler thing about these blankets is that they not only are perfect for various outdoor events, they can make a gorgeous bed throw, wall hanging, and even towel! Here is me sitting on Waikiki beach on the last day of my trip. It went by way too fast!

shop with kendallyn essential

All that I have left to say is that I adore B.L.I.S.S. for their massive selection of stunning blankets and especially what they stand for. Their motto is “Pay if Forward” which really says a lot about their company. It is such a cool thing that a part of the blanket purchase goes to different charities, schools and families in need. It really is worth every penny!
