Collage by Gisell DeJesus

This post is not about beauty but it is about a new book release that I want to share with you all. Happy Release Day to me!!!! Collage is live on amazon as of today November 16, 2018. It is a 90k novel full of romance, crime and mystery.


Jack Wharton is an “Old Philadelphian.” That’s the name given to people whose families can trace their roots back to the origin of the City of Philadelphia, well before the United States became a country. He left that life of privilege long ago to become a homicide detective on the Philadelphia Police Force. When highly educated call girls begin to turn up dead, Jack soon realizes that he is connected to the murders; he just doesn’t know how.
Dr. Emily Dawson has left her practice as a Clinical Psychiatrist to accept a position as the Dean of the Psychology Department at the University of Pennsylvania. When she meets Jack at a party and they hit it off, neither one of them have any idea what they will go through together before the semester even gets underway.
Set in the beautiful City of Philadelphia and on the sandy beaches of Cape May, New Jersey, “Collage” is a story of love, trust, revenge and danger, and how everything is connected.

Here is the amazon link: Happy Reading!

My Honest thoughts:
I have been blogging since 2010 and also I have been a hairstylist since 1999. It is safe to say that I have tried gazillions of hair products. Let me start with the packaging. It may be a big deal to some or none. As for me personally I love me a good design. These products look simple but yet classy. It is a see through bottle so the colors of the shampoos design the bottle on its own. Do you get what I mean? Love it! 

Ok!!! Let's talk about the inside. The real TEA!!!! I used all of these products in a month or so period. The smells are divine. I used the Dew with the Nourish on my curly hair client. I blew dry it straight, I wanted to actually see it work as oppose to leave it a curly look. Let me tell you it worked wonders. It provided her with a long lasting moisture and I finished the look with the sleek spray. You don't need much just 2-3 sprays so this product will also last for a long time. Super concentrated which means you more than your money is worth! Saving is a must!! The prices are insane. They are so affordable you can stock up in one shopping trip!

I also want to root for the root lifter, no pun intended ha! I used it on my self on those hot and humid days that I can not blow out my hair. It gives a hold and a lift. You will love it for volume. Holds but did not stiffed my hair like all those gels do. yay! I love, love them all. So worth it. Go and try it and come back to talk about it.

All products are safe for color treated hair. Thanks for reading.
