season style

we can all use a fresh start every once in a while, right? my cleansing of choice usually comes in form of a fabulous new hair do. whether it’s chopping my long locks, rocking killer bangs or trying a little dye, i love the invigorating feeling of reinvention. every season change, boyfriend change, career change (you get the picture) is always more exciting and perhaps feels more adventurous with a fun new flair.

for the fall of ’13, i went a shade darker, took off 5 inches and added some layers. go ahead, girls, be your bold self!

currently obsessed

my most recent obsession is  KLORANE EXTRA-GENTLE DRY SHAMPOO (with oat milk).

i’m a slave to dry shampoo and i swear by its wonder. many years ago, i had full bangs and quickly embraced dry shampoo for its time-saving magic. to this day, my vanity is never without it!

all of you know that washing your hair every day is a big no-no, correct? shampoo is a soap. soaps are generally more drying than not (…you’ve all seen a dove commercial).

thus, if soap can dry-out your body and hands, it can certainly dry-out your precious strands. therefore, skip the lathering shampoo every other day and use a little dry shampoo to freshen your look on day 2 while not damaging your locks.

i’ve tried many dry shampoos and i have to say klorane takes the cake. its phenomenal oil-removing abilities, the smooth texture, and just the right amount of “oomph” from this product is unmatched.

go try it for yourself. i know i’m hooked.

snap, crackle & pop!

brow highlighter is an often over-looked and under-utilized tool by make-up users everywhere. at a young age, i learned about the magic of “opening up” my eyes by using a light shadow (usually some shade on the white/pale pink spectrum) at the inner corners of my eyes as well as under the brow. i was a dancer and then, yes, a cheerleader and the importance of making my eyes POP was essential for center stage. i’m not talking clown make-up, ladies, but a little swipe (don’t forget to blend) of highlighter under your arch adds so much life to your eyes. it’s as simple as that!

i’m currently loving the BENEFIT HIGH BROW PEN
