Pantene Giveaway/8 Questions Tag

Jul 8, 2010

I've been really behind on blogging lately, not to add  that there was a heat wave here in NYC (it was 104 degrees on Tuesday!). Just thinking about that hot laptop on my lap was making me sweat so I was being really lazy these past couple of days. I do apologize for that and I've already drafted my future posts so I can post regularly.

I won Rai's Pantene Giveaway at her blog Glam-Morena a few weeks ago. I was super excited because it was my first time winning something via blogger. I got my prize super fast, a little less than a week! So thanks again Rai and Pantene! Here's what I received:

from left to right: hair wrap, Goody brush, Secret deodarant, Pantene "Curls to Straight" shampoo, conditioner and hair ampoules, CoverGirl lip gloss, lip stain and Lash Blast mascara.

I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that they included non-Pantene items which was pretty cool. What was also cool was that I was going to wash my hair the same day the package arrived so instead of using the products I regularly use, I decided to give the Pantene a try. And I must say, I really liked it. I didn't feel anything special with the shampoo but with the conditioner, my hair felt smoother and it it didn't take so long to de-tangle. My favorite are the ampoules, I used one in the shower and Wow! My hair felt super soft and silky. My neighbor set my hair in rollers and she also told me that my hair felt really soft. Usually when I don't do my hair at the salon, i just do a roller set and flat iron the roots. This time, it didn't take long to flat iron the roots and I didn't have to do a lot of flat ironing either which was great for me. This is how my hair looked after they came out of the rollers:

(in case you're wondering..tank-H&M, skirt-F21, sandals-Classified)

So I would most definitely recommend the Pantene ampoules to all my curly-haired girls.

I was tagged by PureBeauty (be sure to check out her blog!) for an 8 Questions Tag. I answered these while I was at work, it did help with making the time go by faster lol. the rules are that I have to answer the 8 questions that the "tagger" asked and I in turn have to tag 8 people and ask them 8 questions..So here are the answers to the questions:

1. where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Working as a nurse, providing a nice life for my son and working on getting published. Or hopefully being published already.

2. what are you addicted too?
Ice cream, mocha iced coffee and shoes.

3. who do you look up too and why?
I look up to my mom because she taught me the importance of being independent. I also admire Audrey Hepburn for her glamour and her great contributions to charity.

4. dream car?

5. favorite drug store makeup?

7. do you exercise...if so, whats your favorite routine?

  2. Glad you enjoyed your prize! :D

    Thanks for the tag, I'm definitely doing this.

  3. I so want to be tagged for something next time. I love Pantene. I use their "Relaxed and Natural" line meant for African- American girls that perm their hair or wear it natural and similar to you, I don't care for the shampoo but the conditioner feels awesome.

    I'm really glad you won!
