Bring Me a Unicorn!

Sammy, my 12 lb baby brother, has an assortment of toys. This morning he decided to destroy a pink fluffy treat. I know that eating horses seems cruel but when it's mythilogical and stuffed with cotton... Well, maybe just this once.

Never Too Much

Growing up internationally, I remember my mother going out to several Naval events. Her look was always put together but never overdone. Her hair coiffed perfectly into an understated beehive she carried on her the perfect accessories; a matching belt, pastel angora sweater, dainty charm bracelet, grapevine earrings and, of course, a fabulously chic clutch. With the resurgence of 50's style, due to Mad Men obsessed women turned ladies, I think this is the perfect photo to reflect on this Mother's Day. Take a tip from this original fashionista, my mama.

Shine On!

Take Frizz-Ease® Hair Serum Original Formula's super slippery hair serum on your next vacation! It's the perfect size, 1.69 fl. oz., for no-hassle security when traveling on a plane. And you won't need much, one pump was plenty for my extra long locks! I applied it before blow-drying my hair for extra shine and a natural look. It's perfect for sunny weather because it blocks UV rays and takes care of frizz when you are in foggy or beachy locations. If your traveling with a sweetheart, I am sure he will love the fruity-floral scent the formula leaves behind.

I took along John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shine Shock Leave-On Perfecting Glosser for that extra glamorous hit of polish for after I straightened my hair. It added a finished, sleek look and made my brown hair color richer and more saturated! This gelish-textured glosser has a soft, muted scent that's not too overpowering. Once again, the 2.4 oz. size is perfect for traveling and you won't need much to make a big shine wherever you are!

Get both for the perfect combination in hair care and sexy shine for at home or when you are on the go.

A Butter Way to Start the Day

It's a grey day in Seattle, but don't let that get you down. Grab your comfiest tank (for me it's my crossback Stylemint in heather) and laquer up your nails with a creamy smooth dove-grey. I love Butter LONDON Billy No Mates! The title may say, "loser" but you definitely won't be with this combo.
