Healthy Hair Journey: Cantu 30 Day Challenge

Hey Fashloves,

I'm super excited to tell you guys about this awesome challenge that I will be embarking on for a month! If you've read my natural hair journey post (click here to read it) then you know I am all about taking great care of my hair and transitioning from getting relaxers. Since I've been maintaining my own hair lately, I'm always on the hunt for awesome healthy products that can make my transitioning process as smooth as possible while strengthening my new natural hair growth.

From April 15th to May 15th I will be embarking on a challenge to healthy hair by solely using Cantu products! This challenge is presented by Change Your Life with Beauty and Glensford Beauty Academy in collaboration with Cantu (of course!). Throughout the month I'll be providing product reviews, hair inspiration chats, and much more.

But guess what? I want you all to join this journey with me! Join this challenge by either only using Cantu Beauty products or introducing their items into your regimen and document your progress as well. In the meantime go ahead and visit to find out more information about this fabulous hair care line as well as to get tons of inspiration ranging from style to relationships.

Fashilluminous' Spring/Summer Style Guide

Hey Fashloves,

Cheers are definitely in order because it's finally Spring! While I am more of an Autumn girl, I've been loving all of the ready to wear Spring/Summer runway presentations that I've seen this past fashion week so I've totally been inspired. Click here to check out my Rachel Zoe post that shows major Spring Inspo and to understand my excitement!

Lately I've been purchasing more Spring inspired pieces (finally straying away from neutrals), so in a very Fashilluminous-esque fashion I've compiled a quick Spring/Summer style guide that you all can utilize during this season and when you're looking to purchase new pieces as well. I purchased this entire look from Charlotte Russe, which is the perfect one stop shop when needing to build a trendy look from start to finish.

1. Romper/Shorts  

Who doesn't love shorts in the Spring/Summer? I've really been into rompers lately because not only are they convenient when getting dressed (just slip them on), they are also very easy to style. When choosing a romper, be sure to take your body type into consideration. Some rompers are meant to have more of a loose fit, so purchasing it in the wrong size may result in your cheeks hanging out.

2. Bold, Vibrant Prints

Typically during the Spring season, bohemian prints are all the rage. You find these prints mostly in pants and dresses so be sure to give them a shot when shopping. I absolutely love the print on my romper in this post and also how the colors blend together seamlessly.

3. Gladiators Baby!

Simply saying that I am excited for gladiator season is an understatement. I love the strappyness of these sandals and how they draw just the right amount of attention to your legs. Gladiators typically make their debut around this time every year so be sure to snag a pair because they won't be heading out of style any time soon.

4. Shades, Please

These past few months I've literally been a sunglasses fanatic. From bold colored to sleek mirrored lenses, sunglasses nowadays can literally take your look up a notch. I paired these round sunnies with my look because it was very fitting with my subtle bohemian vibe going on. When shopping for shades, be sure to choose at least one daring pair.

I hope this quick guide can help those who plan on doing some Spring shopping soon. If you have any questions about certain pieces, current trends, or styling please feel free to click here to ask!
