    Best Life Livin’

    Hi there ‘Lysse on Life readers,

    I’m so glad my pal, Alysse, has given me some space to scribble a few things down. This is an affirmation, a reminder, and a declaration to live my best life. I’m writing it for myself but hope that you can take something away from it too.

    The concept of living my “best life” popped up on my radar within the last year. Since then, I have asked and been asked by peers and friends countless times, “are you living your best life?” The question is typically posed as a wake up call, when it is very clear that some aspect of my life is not together. Unfortunately, I didn’t really know what living my best life looked like for me. It was easy for me to evaluate my life using the standards of best life livin’ I thought society expected of me.

    Pajama Sets To Make You Feel Like You Have Your Life Together


    Welcome to my first new post on the new rebranded site Lysse On Life. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know how excited I am for what is to come and I am most thankful to all of you who read the blog and support what I’m doing here. Today’s post is all about pajama sets!

    When I was growing up my mom always tried to convince me that I needed matching pajama sets. I convinced her that sleeping in a t-shirt and spandex would suffice, and it did for a while. But then one day I decided to indulge in a couple pieces of clothing that actually came from the sleepwear section and my life was changed. Oh how good it feels to climb into bed after a long day and change into some cute and comfortable pj’s. I know it sounds like a small thing, but it makes me feel like I have my life together, ya know?

    I don’t know about y’all, but sweating in the middle of the night is #gross. Here are some of my favorite sets for the spring/summer to keep you cool and cute!

    Deva Curl Styling Products: A Review

    Hey everyone! I have another product review featuring Deva Curl, coming at all my curl hair chicks!

    About a month after receiving a Deva Curl product from Influenster, I was asked to joining the Deva Curl Social Media Influencer team! It has honestly been a dream to work with a brand I whole heartedly believe in. With that being said, every product is not for everyone and everyone is not going to think they are great, and that is okay! I also want to preface this by saying that I have 3B hair. My curls are decently loose, the width of a small grape and my overall hair texture is not very coarse.  Before using these styling products, my hair product list started and ended with a bottle of olive oil. My hair screams for moisture and the olive oil does just that and leaves it looking shiny and healthy. I can only speak from my experience with my hair type, but I hope my descriptions will help you decipher if it could work for you!
