Summer Hair Care with Sassoon Salon

- Beauty, Collaborators

    With everyone ditching the hair ties and letting their hair flow loose in the summer, it’s super important to make sure we’re keeping our hair healthy and happy. Sun exposure and pollution strip your hair of essential oils, leaving hair brittle and dehydrated. Naturally radiant and silky hair is something we all strive for, and achieving it may not be as hard as you think. The experts at Sassoon Salon can be your saving grace.   For the past…

  Ugh.  Aging.  Am I right?  When I turned 30, I started to realize that even if I was using the same makeup techniques, the end result was different.  Probably the most noticeable difference was the creasing.  I had to make some changes and I’m sharing with you my top 3 tips on doing your makeup over 30.   First, everyone’s face is different.  You might not notice aging until your 40… good for you… *insert sarcastic thumbs up here*…

ColourPop Cosmetics

- Beauty

I think I speak for all of us when I say online shopping is amazing, except when it comes down to color matching makeup. You might be looking through the screen and think you’ve found your go-to new lip shade, but when the package arrives to your house, the color was just not what you envisioned.

Aging in Reverse

- Beauty

I turned 30 this year and like most women, I was determined to not let it show on my skin.  Since college I’ve used a litany of moisturizers, eye creams, cleansers, and even treatments on my skin to keep it looking like, well, like I was still in college.  Just in the last year or two, I have to say, my skin looks better now than it did when I was in my 20s and I’m excited to share my nightly routine with you!

Curly Hair Talk- My Daily Routine

- Beauty

Like most curly-haired girls, I grew up hating my thick curls and envying the girls with the straight hair that could run their fingers through it- (my life goal). It wasn’t until I learned how to properly take care of my curls and find the perfect products that I learned to love them! All together my routine takes roughly 20-25 minutes factoring in and out of the shower styling. I’ve experimented with techniques and products over the years and have found…
