Beauty Buzz: TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo

This post brought to you by TRESemmé. All opinions are 100% mine.

The alarm goes off. You hit snooze. Alarm goes off again.

It’s one of “those” mornings. You know, the kind where  you don’t want to get up and out of bed. You just want 30 more minutes of sleep. Don’t get me started on how long it takes to style our hair!

If you feel like skipping a day of shampooing, then you might want to try TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo.

It’s a unique formula created to absorb excess oil and remove odors. It rejuvenates hair without a single drop of water and will bring some life your unwashed tresses. You’ll love the bursts of citrus extracts in their full line of products.

Check out the line below.

Strengthening Dry Shampoo: The formula, with B12 vitamins and keratin, helps strengthen your hair and leaves it full of body.

Volumizing Dry Shampoo: This formula is made with mineral clay and citrus. It removes oil while injecting your hair with salon-gorgeous volume.

Smoothing Dry Shampoos: Here you get Vitamin H and Silk Proteins that refreshes your straight hair style by removing excess oil, impurities and odor.

Moisturizing Waterless Foam Shampoo: This formula has Witch Hazel, Citrus, and Aloe Vera. It also refreshes your hair by removing excess oil, impurities, and odor while moisturizing your hair.

Not sure how to use it? Here are some do’s and dont’s.

  • Do shake vigorously before use and in between spray bursts for best results.
  • Do lift sections of dry hair and spray lightly at roots.
  • Do spray in short burst, holding 8-12 inches from head.
  • Don’t spray like hair spray (all over and continuously)
  • Do leave in for 1-2 minutes.
  • Do use fingertips or abursh to distribute product evenly.

Introducing REAL by MYHABIT, A New Shopping Experience

Everyone’s favorite “go to” shopping site, Amazon.com has created MYHABIT. It’s one of the latest “membership-only” fashion sale sites.

And they just recently launched REAL by MYHABIT. It’s a series of online sale events offering women, sizes 14-24, the best designer and contemporary brands at up to 60% off.

The sales will last up to 4 days, unless they sell out (which can happen!). Today’s sales include dresses from Taylor Dress, denim from CJ by Cookie Johnson (some of my favorites are already sold out), and Z from Zenobia.

I’m loving the red blazer by Z from Zenobia. It’s originally $1,350 and is now $269!!

What I love most, besides the great prices, is that the site offers instant membership, free four day shipping, free returns (US orders only), and a flate rate $15 for priority international shipping.

The site is cool too with it’s 360-degree video of the clothes. That comes in handy, when you’re curious to see how an item fits.

So, check out REAL by MYHABIT and let me know what you think.

Shoe Fever: Velvet Heels

 

Why do I always find shoes I can’t have. It’s like we were meant to be together, but it just isn’t going to happen. Isn’t this always the story of my shoe life.

Today, I’m lusting after velvet heels. It all started when I saw the Rosa Velvet Heel by Juicy Couture ($225) in the color Cobblestone (right). Read more

Here’s a little sneak peek into the Just My Size fall/winter look book! I’m loving the chunky knit sweaters. As you can see, a lot of the pieces are great for layering and nothing here is over $20! Available at Walmart, this line is very budget-friendly.

Celebrate Fall with MICHAEL Michael Kors

Yay! It’s the first day of fall and I can’t wait for the weather to change. I’m already thinking about cold weather accessories! Go ahead and blame it on the new Bloomingdales catalog.

I saw this yummy-licious MICHAEL Michael Kors Twist Neck Warmer that is definitely on my shopping list.

I know it’s L.A. and it doesn’t get that cold, but it doesn’t hurt to be fashionably prepared. LOL. Me and my excuses to shop!

Here are a few more MICHAEL Michael Kors accessories that wouldn’t hurt to have.

Beauty Buzz: The Turbie Twist

Have you ever watched one of those “As Seen on TV” commercials (a.k.a. infomercials) and thought…Why didn’t I think of that?

That’s exactly how I felt when I saw the Turbie Twist commercial for the first time. And when I finally got my hands on one, it was confirmed…I should of invented this!

I’ve been throwing my wet hair up in towels since I can remember. And when you’re hair is soaking wet, it takes for ever to dry and you have a heavy towel on your head. My hair is long too!

Not with the Turbie Twist. I don’t want to sound like an infomercial, but when I used it for the first time I was kinda in love. It’s so comfortable and easy to put on, I kind of forgot I had it on in the first place. And because this new one is made of microfiber, my hair did dry a lot faster. It’s a one size fits all, machine washable, and affordable.

I will admit I haven’t washed it yet, so I’m not sure of the quality after the wash. But, for now…it’s doing its job.

Take a look at the commercial below:

Have you ever tried the Turbie Twist? What do you think?

The Black Beaded Necklace

I love when I spot a new jewelry trend. Especially if it’s one that can be worn by anyone and everyone. I first spotted this beautiful black beaded Kate Spade New York ‘cut to the chase’ bib statement necklace last month. I found a few other necklaces below that I’d love to own, they range in price from $7.80-$650. Not only could these be worn in the fall, but also into the winter with your favorite holiday dress.

How would you wear a black beaded necklace?

My L’Oreal Paris Beauty Suite Visit

Don’t tell anyone, but I think I’m a closet beauty junkie. I can’t get enough!

I was so excited when L’Oreal Paris invited me to visit their beauty suite at the Emmy’s Luxury Lounge! It was held inside the beautiful Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills, on Saturday.

Whenever I get invited to an event I honestly don’t know what to expect.

For example, I almost bumped into Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, who plays Cameron Tucker, when I exited the elevator. I also spotted Jerry Ferrara who plays Turtle on Entourage. He’s too cute!

I made my way to the L’Oreal Paris Beauty Suite and was greeted, offered a yummy cocktail, and headed to get a manicure. I was so flustered when I arrived, but the amazing Danielle from L’Oreal and Cindy from Soy Fashionista quickly calmed my nerves. Thanks ladies!!

After my mani and chatting with celebrity makeup artist and L’Oreal Paris consulting expert Johnny Lavoy, I went over to get my hair done. Johnny is amazing by the way.

Before I knew it, my hair was styled and it was time to go.  I’d like to send a BIG thank you to L’Oreal Paris for the invite and pampering. Let’s do it again sometime!!

Here’s what I wore…
