Lover.ly Collab + GGG “Brides Just Wanna Have Fun” Makeup

I have been super lucky to get to attend not one, but two of my close friend's weddings this year.  At each wedding we danced all night and gave the bartenders a decent workout.  Both weddings were beyond fun and so memorable in different ways. Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration and planning site, reached out to me ...

DHC Head Oil: Your After-Hair-Color Savior

I love the name of this product from DHC:  Head Oil.  It makes me smile every time.  Head Oil.  So utilitarian. DHC is a skincare, hair care, and high end food company from Japan.  I've sung the praises of some of their products before (their Face Cleansing Oil is life changing and I'm not exaggerating).  This ...

Have you ever done your makeup and tried a new product in a new shade and thought this looks a little off but Time Waits For No Man so you just stick with it and kind-of-not-like-it all day?  Me too.  But I've also left the house in makeup I loved so much that I never ...

Boxycharm September 2014 Unboxing

I love beauty subscription boxes.  I do.  The surprise of new makeup every month is amazing, along with discovering brands I've never heard of and trying shades I'd be too scared to try on my own. This month's September Boxycharm was an awesome combo of all of these things.  A TRIFECTA.  I like that Boxycharm also ...

Connie Britton “Nashville” Spiral Curls Hair Tutorial

Every single episode I watch of the tv show "Nashville" is spent half engaged in the drama and half wondering how one woman's hair can be so gorgeous. Seriously, Connie Britton's hair in the show gives me life.  The curls, the color, the hair.  One of my favorite looks from the last two seasons was this ...
