How To Create Beachy Waves With A Straightener
February 28, 2017 at 2:56 am 0
As a Mother we don't always have the time to spend fussing over our hair. I mean I rock a top knot courtesy of a little dry shampoo way more often than I should! I am always on the look out for new and versatile tools that can simplify the process of getting ready since I usually have a 3 year old hanging off me for most of the day. Now before Willow, I used to use a curling wand and a straightener to achieve a wavy look and these days...ain't nobody got time for that! I recently found a styling iron that can straighten, curl, and create waves. Who doesn't love a hair tool that serves dual purposes and looks as sleek as the T3 SinglePass LUXE? I must admit I was a little intimidated by using just a flat iron to create waves, but the T3 has flexible beveled plates and a contoured body to glide smoothly through hair. See my steps below on how to create carefree waves using the T3 Singlepass LUXE.

1. Allow your T3 SinglePass LUXE a minute to heat up.

2. Take a one-inch section of your hair and bring the straightener up to your roots at a 45 degree angle.

3. Wrap the section around the front of the straightener, when you get to the back pull hair through the plates and clip them together.

4. Slide straightener smoothly down hair and release to reveal the perfect wave.

5. Run your fingers through your hair to separate the waves. Set it with your favorite hair spray or texturizing spray ( I love this one from Oribe).

6. Now pat yourself on the back for creating waves with a straightener and you should probably take a picture!

You can find the T3 SinglePass LUXE at T3, Nordstrom, Sephora, and ULTA

I'm all about shopping with a purpose lately, I'm trying to be conscious about my spending by finding pieces that I can style with different accessories to create several looks. I found this little floral number and fell in love with the back detail. In my mind I already have several outfit ideas surrounding this beauty. I paired it with these affordable bright flats, which are perfectly comfortable and easy to chase Willow around in. Then I saw the price...sold!!

Burning Calories at the Go Priv and Tone It Up Event!
July 25, 2015 at 9:47 pm 0
I loved this event I attended in Malibu with Go Priv and the lovely girls from Tone It Up, Karena and Katrina. They lead us through some serious exercises from their 8 week Bikini Program. The girls had us do some amazing moves that really had me feeling it the next day...and the next day after that!! I love attending anything with Go Priv attached to it!! It usually means pampering the minute you walk through the door.  Go Priv is a beauty and wellness app that easily lets you choose a service and professional of your choice. You select the date and time, and then enter your desired location! Its a whole beauty team that comes right to your door step...perfect for us Mamas that can't always leave the house for a manicure. They even have personal trainers! At the event there was a braid bar, massages, and manicures...it was any Mama's dream! See some of my pics from the event, along with some of my favorite workout gear below!
