Moroccan Oil

Ever wonder why you can never get your hair to look the same as it does after you leave the salon. I bet that if you used the same high end products that your stylist uses, and technique,  you would achieve a similar result. I have lots of recommendations for flat irons, blow dryers, and hair care products but in this post I want to focus on hair care.  If you were to ask me what my absolute favorite hair product is, I would, without a doubt, tell you Moroccan Oil.  My dear friend and hairstylist Jean Jekal, from Erwin Gomez Salon in Georgetown, was the first person to introduce this product to my head. It leaves your hair healthy and shiny without looking greasy, cuts your blow drying time in half, is filled with Vitamin E, F and A, and smells AMAZING! It costs about 49.5$ and you can get it at most high end salons. You will be so glad you invested in this wonderful product. Have a happy Monday! 

Before pics and Give-a-way!!

I purchased each of these skirts for a crazy, stupid, ridiculous amount while in Kansas City. My mom and I worked on them this week to make them a bit shorter. I bought a total of 11 different vintage skirts!! Almost all of them are wool and have a lining. The most I paid for one was 5$. Yes. That is right. Most of the skirts were 2$. They are well made and fabulous. 
and here is my favorite one:
This is the before. I will post some after pictures this week so stay tuned. Oh! I almost forgot. Why did you not click the follow button?

Thanks (Oh…and for those who are already following…don’t unfollow. I know who you are 🙂

Mom Jeans

“The good thing about mom jeans is that you never have a muffin top!”
-My very own mother said this today. I don’t think I can comment on that. But YOU can 🙂

Beautiful Life

I just love the story behind this picture. The story that is in my head about this picture, not the actually story of the photo shoot. She is a strong, confident,  successful woman who is in the fashion industry of some sort. Her and her husband live in a cool flat in London. Her beloved is on his way home from a long day at the office and she is wanting a hot meal ready for him when he walks in the door. He is bringing home the wine and bread and she has some sort of pasta dish in the oven. The sink is full of dishes, all the bills are paid and her and the mister have their own closet rooms. She loves food and fashion and family and he loves life and her. 

Favorite Things

I wanted to share two of my most favorite products with you. Some years back, I had a good friend who worked for Kiehl’s and let me sample almost all of the products. Some were not so fabulous but there were plenty that were.

They have a “special” mens line (I think they just put it in blue packaging so guys will buy it) and I tried some of it just to see if the “mens” facial scrub was better than the “womens”.  As it turns out, the manly scrub is WAY better.  Exfoliating your skin is the key to having healthy looking skin (and so is not smoking, drinking lots of water, getting 7+ hours of sleep…). You can pick it up at the Kiehl’s store, Nordstrom or Saks.  Oh- and it has a great price point (17$ for a 3.4oz tube) for such a quality product. (Rub the scrub on your face for one minute while in the shower).

The second product, which happens to pair well with the first, is the “mens” moisturizer. This is the BEST moisturizer in town. Put it on after you get out of the shower and enjoy. It smells great and you can even get it with SPH. It lasts foever, as long as you use it properly and also has a great price point for the quality (25$ for a 2.5oz tube). Get it at Nordstrom too!

For the holidays, I know that Nordstom offers some great Kiehl’s gift bags with both of the products above. I have more favorite products to share, but these are a must have for the season!
