My Hampton Inn & Suites Santa Monica and Beverly Center Shopcation!

I am always traveling, which can get exhausting! That's why I had so much fun on my "staycation/shopcation" at The Hampton Inn & Suites Santa Monica and Beverly Center!

I started off with a fun shopping spree at newly renovated Beverly Center! It's absolutely gorgeous!! There were so many amazing stores and new restaurants!

After all that shopping, we had an amazing lunch at Farmhouse! The restaurant is not only delicious and fresh, but so gorgeous! And the burger is one of the best I've ever had!!

And now checking into the super cute Hampton Inn & Suites in Santa Monica after a fun shopping day! How cute is this neon sign in the lobby?! I'll take sunshine too!

After relaxing in the hotel for a bit, I walked over to one of my favorite places in LA, The Santa Monica Pier! I love how close the Hampton Inn & Suites is to the Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade! Literally just a 10 minute walk or so! So fun and so convenient!

So refreshed after a comfortable sleep and fun staycation/shopcation! I loved the complimentary breakfast in the morning and my favorite was the waffle maker!!!!! But, before check out I had to go up to the gorgeous pool deck for a dip in the pool and to lay out for a bit! I had the best time!! Check out all of the great deals that can be had at these SoCal Hilton hotels here!

My Pantene Pro-V 14-Day Challenge!

I have been using Pantene Pro-V since I was a teenager, and I love that they have always focused on healthy beautiful hair to support the boldness of women! It’s been so much fun to take part in and see the results of the Pantene 14 Day Challenge! I have been coloring my hair since I was 15 years old, which has really taken a toll on my hair. Because of that, the Pantene Repair & Protect Collection Shampoo and Conditionerwere the perfect products for me to try during the challenge! I also loved using the Ultimate 10 BB Crème on my hair after styling for a silky, smooth finish! Follow along with my journey below!

Day 1:

I was so excited to try out the Pantene Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner because my hair was so ready to be repaired from all of the coloring and hot styling tools I use on it! Honestly, I could feel the difference immediately, which makes sense – this collection promises to repair six months of damage in just one use! It has concentrated moisturizers and conditioners which reduce hair friction and tangles (who else’s hair gets crazy tangled all the time!?) while smoothing the hair, resulting in visible reduction of damage!

After taking part in the challenge, I have some pro tips for you! When shampooing, focus on the scalp and roots, where the most build up of scalp oils, dirt and product residue come from. When you are conditioning the hair, you should make sure to condition the full length of your hair. You may have been told (like I was!) that you should condition just the tips of your hair, and that is not the case! Your hair needs conditioner wherever it is exposed to heat-styling, color, sun and anything else that might damage it! Also, make sure not to over-rinse the hair! It shouldn’t take more then 30 seconds to rinse out the conditioner so make sure to run your fingers through the hair!

Day 7:

This was my hair at day 7! My color has been enhanced with more shine and vibrancy, and I can feel the difference even more! The Pantene Repair & Protect Collection’s Shampoo and Conditioner also protects the hair between washes by smoothing the hair cuticle and reinforcing your hair’s outer layer.

Day 14:

Yay! It’s the last day of the challenge and I am seeing so much less breakage, less flyaways, and my hair just feels stronger. It used to be super stiff and brittle because of how damaged it was, but now it flows and feels so silky. I am so happy with the results!!!!!!!!!

It might sound silly to some, but all of the women in my life feel this way – a bad hair day can really ruin your entire day, and a great hair day will do the opposite! Only 1 in 10 women experience a great hair day regularly, and Pantene wants to change that!! When I know my hair looks healthy and amazing, I feel amazing!

Are you ready to take the Pantene 14 Day Challenge!? You won’t regret it!!!

Xoxo,

Emily Men

Pantene Charcoal Collection

I am so excited to be partnering with Pantene!! Pantene is an original in the hair game, and I’ve been using their products forever! I love that Pantene has always focused on not only beautiful hair, but super healthy hair to support confidence and boldness in women – they have known about the benefits of pro-vitamin B5’s for your hair since the 1940s!

I know there are so many products on the market right now that it’s hard to decide which product to buy, so I wanted to share with you that I recently discovered Pantene’s new Charcoal Collection, and I love it!!

The Pantene Charcoal Collection’s shampoo and conditioner uses activated charcoal, which gently purifies your hair by absorbing impurities, like magnetic attraction! Unlike your skin, your hair does not have a built-in purification system. If you are like me and go three or more days without washing your hair, then all the scalp oils, styling products, dry shampoo, you name it result in dirt build up! That build up can cause your hair to gain 4% of its own weight!

Pantene’s Charcoal Collection specifically addresses this issue with activated charcoal, which is a purifying ingredient that you may have noticed has become a major player in several health and beauty products! Activated charcoal works to detox hair by attracting impurities while simultaneously releasing antioxidants, which helps your hair look refreshed and clean with tons of body and shine!! The formula is also super lightweight!

Look at how amazing my hair looks after using the shampoo and conditioner! My hair feels super clean and looks bright and fresh because of the activated charcoal. My hair also looks way more shiny than it does when I use other shampoos and conditioners.

I can’t say enough about how much I love the Pantene Charcoal Collection Shampoo and Conditioner! You have to try it, and right now there is a great promotion going on – for a limited time, Target is having an in-store and online promotion, where you receive a $5 gift card after purchasing a select number of Pantene Charcoal Collection  products.

When your hair looks good, you feel good. After all, nothing gives you the confident boost that a good hair day does!

I love Pantene’s products because they make it so easy to have beautiful hair.  I don’t know about you, but having a bad hair day will put a damper on my day, but when my hair feels great I feel like I am ready for anything!  Pantene helps me have more great hair days and feel ready to take on the world!

Have you tried the new Pantene Charcoal Collection!? I would love to hear about your experiences!

Xoxo,

Emily Men
