I’m Katie, owner and creative mind behind KasuallyKatie.com. My blog is all about trying new things and incorporating my favorite pieces and products into everyday looks for the perfect style. My style is very casual, neutral (except when it comes to Lilly Pulitzer!), and comfortable. I’m also an avid coffee drinker and foody. More recently, I have become obsessed with makeup and trying new products. When I’m not blogging about lifestyle and fashion, I am fulfilling my duties as a full-time marketing communications assistant, hanging out with my friends and family, teaching skating lessons, or working out.

I was surprised by the results of using L'Oréal Elvive Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm! It is very easy to use and used it as I normally would when using conditioner. Once I got out of the shower it was very easy to comb through my hair. After drying it my hair felt very soft and looked more tame, healthy, and moisturized. I didn't use any other products. I usually straighten or curl my hair for work and I bleach my hair every six months. I did notice my hair looked healthier and less damaged.
As someone else said, the only reason I didn’t rate this product 5 stars is that I noticed my hair became oily more quickly than it normally would. I usually only wash my hair every 4 or 5 days and usually don't have to use dry shampoo until the 3rd day. With this product, I needed dry shampoo by the second day.
Overall, I was satisfied and will probably use again.
I will always and forever love neutral eyeshadows and this palette was one of my most used makeup products this year. Every morning it was my go-to palette to create natural looks for work. I also used the darker colors in the palette to create night looks on the weekends. It is also a great palette to travel with because you can create so many looks with just one product, plus its small and the case is protective. I like that there are more matte colors, but there are also a few shimmery colors included. I've hit the pan for several of the colors and will be repurchasing soon!
This is the best rum and the flavor is so good! I like to mix it with peach carbonated water and it is the perfect mix. It is affordable. This is my go-to flavor of rum and I will always recommend it to my friends.
This shampoo is great for blondes wanting to keep their color light and bright! I noticed my hair was getting a little brassy and yellow so I picked up this shampoo at Ulta and it has been great! it smells good and my hair feels very clean after using it.
These cookies are the easiest and best sugar cookies for the holidays. They are bite size pieces and are perfect for holiday parties. I typically buy them at my local grocery store. Another great thing about these particular ones is they don't have Red 40 in them so I can eat them!
I recently stopped picking my nails and got gel done at a salon, however, I didn't want to spend money every two weeks to get my nails done. I ended up buying this kit at Target and I love it! This kit cost me $24.99 and I got a few additional colors. If you aren't patient enough for your nails to dry with regular polish, I highly suggest this because your nails dry so fast! The only reason I am giving this four stars instead of five is because the Red Your Profile color does not match the color shown on the outside of the box or the label. I was expecting this to be more of a wine color and it is bright red. Bright red is definitely not my color and I would much rather have a darker red for fall. Other than that, I highly suggest this product!
I was really excited to get this product from Influenster, but the texture of this primer felt powdery and it made my dry face feel even drier. I tried it a few times and I really just did not like it. If you have dry skin this product is definitely not for you!
My Naked 3 palette is my favorite eye palette I own. I have had it for about a year now and use it very frequently and it still has plenty left! I have mostly run out of the two lightest colors since those are the colors I use the most, but all of the colors are beautiful. They are very pigmented and are perfect for a rose gold look.
I love these makeup wipes! They are the best wipes I have used to remove makeup and they last a while. I actually use one twice before I throw it away if it doesn't have too much makeup on it, so I get twice as much use out of it. These are also great to take off waterproof mascara and matte lipstick.
