SUNDAY SKINCARE HEROES

skincare

I don’t know about you guys, but Sunday’s are for #selfcare.  And lots of it.  A huge focus for me too after a weekend (which typically includes a ton of eating and drinking) is my SKIN.  My sunday skincare routine has become a sort of non-negotiable.  As in, husband, please do not bother me between the hours of roughly 6-8pm on a Sunday as I will be in the bathroom meticulously going through my skincare routine – face and hair…

BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN

The start of Spring always signals a little hair refresh, ya feel me? And for us blondes out there, this usually means lighter LOCKS.  I was in the states last week, so the timing worked out perfectly to pop in and see my hair stylist (Nacar at Laicale in NYC).  Below are before and after shots of my hair – needless to say, I was in need of some major TLC – cut, color, the whole shabang!

HAIR OIL 101

Ladies and gents, I have a recent hair product discovery that I neeeed to share with you.  And that is HAIR OIL. Now, to judge whether or not hair oil is for you, let me start by telling you that I have fine hair.  My issue with a lot of hair oils that I’ve used in the past, is that they had a tendency to weigh my hair down.  So mainly, I’d refrain from including in my hair routine. Recently,…

NOSTALGIC HAIRCARE

There are very few beauty brands that make me hella nostalgic. My sister, mom, and myself all used Pantene Pro-V when I was growing up. And how can we forget the tagline "hair so healthy it shines"!? I can remember the commercials perfectly. It was like when one of us was having a good hair day, we'd say we had 'Pantene hair.' Shiny hair was serious #hairgoals back then.…

#NYFW TIDBITS

Hi Ya'll! Fashion week was a complete whirlwind.  I had SUCH a blast seeing all my blogger girls and all of the incredible models and designers that I look up to in the fashion industry.  Fashion world and blogger world are actually quite different, but this #NYFW, I felt like these two worlds completely collided.  Although I felt like a chicken with my dang HEAD cut off all week, I had the best time.
