I have decided to continue the theme of having song lyrics as the title of my blog posts.
I was lucky enough to preview the Miss Me Jeans Spring 14 collection, hosted by Lucky Magazine. Here I am in one of their embellished sweaters. I like that this sweater reminds me of the Golden Girls but with a funky a edge. It’s definitely going to be a staple in my closet this holiday season.
Here are some photos I took while I was at the Miss Me Jeans showroom:
How perfect is that dress on the right for Spring?
GO USA with red, white and blue. Perfect in time for the Olympics!
Thank you to Miss Me Jeans for a great event and the lovely romper that I got as a gift.
After talking about it for months, I finally bit the bullet and got bangs! I was a bit nervous, since the last time I had bands they were more like “fringes” and took forever to grow out. This time around I wanted heavier bangs a la Alexa Chung.
I went to the amazing Maeven at Salon Eleven and this is the magic she came up with:
It takes a lot of skill to make my super damaged hair look this good. I was so happy after the haircut I gave Maeven a huge hug!
Now for maintenance. Here are the four hair products that I cannot live without.
Full disclosure: I brush my hair about ONCE month. Here’s how I get away with it. After washing and drying my hair, I spritz Bumble and Bumble Sun Spray generously everywhere and scrunch it. I then tip my head over and use a diffuser to lightly dry my hair. I then set the crown of my head in rollers and spray with Joico Joimist Firm. When day two comes around I run Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo though my hair and then tease the crown after spraying it with Oscar Blandi Proto spray, which gives you instant volume. There you have it. Secrets of a lazy person.
On an impulse this weekend, I bought these UGG Ansley slippers to wear while walking my dog. Well, I put them on Sunday and didn’t want to ever take them off. Aesthetically pleasing? Not so much, but warm and comfy, OH YES.
These are great to rotate in between my Jimmy Choo Whirl Snakeskin Ballet Flats, which I pretty much have been wearing every day since the weather cooled down.
I’m obsessed with my Choos but I can’t wear them EVERYDAY, even if they are super comfy. And they are really great quality.
No budget for Choos? These Sam Edelman Black Leather Felicia ($90) flats are a great alternative.
What are your favorite black flats?
If you are a beauty junkie like me, you are probably always looking for the next best thing. I am always looking for a facial cleanser that doesn’t leave makeup on my skin after I have washed my face. I usually have to go over my face with a cotton ball swabbed with toner just to get any residual left.
Enter LIFTLAB: Purify & Clarify — I think I may have just found the solution to my problems. Lather it up and use it as a cleanser, keep it on and use it as a deep cleansing mask. I love the duality of this product. And it keeps my skin clean and hydrated. What’s not to love?
