1 1/4″ Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Iron, I have natural curly hair and this curling iron will enhance those curls. 

Miss Spa Face Mask

Favorite brand of sheet masks, usually leave them on for 20 – 30 min. Detox is my favorite one to help clear my skin

I have a wall plug in wax melter, but it takes up one of the only wall plug in’s in our current home. This one will be nice to sit on top of my dresser. I also got a few scents to go with the melter (Mandarin Berry, Raspberry Peach & Red Pomegranate)
