    June 2020 Favorites

    Can you believe it’s already the end of June? This has been the weirdest year ever. We’re more than halfway through 2020 and we’ve been in lockdown or in some sort of quarantine for almost 4 of those months. I have a few favorites from this month to share. It’s actually a pretty short list. First, I’ve mentioned this before and if you follow my Instagram Stories, then you know I’ve been trying to go for daily walks whenever the weather is good. When I was working from home during the last 3 months of school, I knew I had to get out for walks. It was good to get…

    How To Decide On Your New Haircut When You Are Unsure

    Image Credit Pixabay.com License CC0 Choosing a new look for your hair can be difficult. You may be caught between a few different styles, and committing to one specific option can be tough. Having a completely new look to your hair is a big decision to make and you may be concerned that if you choose the wrong option and you don’t like it, then you will be stuck with it. Getting your hair back to the way that you do like it may take some time. If you are worried about getting wrong and cutting too low or dyeing your hair to a color that does not suit you,…

    Splurge Gift Guide

    If you didn’t have a budget and could spend as much as you want on your Christmas gifts or for a gift for yourself, what would you get? I thought it would be fun to put together a splurge gift guide because maybe you’re working with a higher or limitless budget or maybe you really want one of these items as a nice gift for yourself. Each item I’ve picked out here is something I really for myself, but haven’t gotten. The prices range from just under $200 to over $1,000 so it’s a wide range, but more than I want to or am able to spend right now…or any…

    New & Improved Finesse Restore + Strengthen

    Have you ever used shampoos and conditioners from Finesse? I’ve used the brand on and off throughout the years. A few years ago I was sent the Finesse Restore + Strengthen Shampoo and Conditioner and I really liked it. Well, now Finesse is coming out with a new & improved version! I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the hair products. What’s new about it? The new version will feature a hair reviving beauty boost of Camellia Oil and Active Proteins. Camellia Japonica Oil (also known as Tsubaki Oil) — formerly a Japanese beauty secret — is a J-Beauty and K-Beauty favorite, typically found in high-end skincare…

  • Lob - Beach Waves


    Styling My Lob

    If you don’t know what a “lob” is it’s a long bob. I’m not sure if having a long bob is an oxymoron, but whatever it’s a thing. Anyway, since cutting my hair short I’ve been wanting to perfect a beach wavy look that I see so many people on Instagram with. Like really cute beachy waves on short hair. When I cut my hair I told my hair stylist about how I wanted to do a beach wave/bend in the hair look and she showed me (with a cold iron) what to do. Basically curl your hair as usual starting from high up (With long hair I always started…

  • Shu Uemura - Color Lustre


    Shu Uemura Hair Products

    The first time I heard of Shu Uemura, the famous Japanese beauty brand, was when I saw The Devil Wears Prada and Giselle mentions something about Shu Uemura eyelash curlers. Despite having heard of the brand many years ago, I just tried products from the brand recently. I was sent 3 hair care products from the brand: the Color Lustre Brilliant Glaze Shampoo for Color Treated Hair, the Color Lustre Brilliant Glaze Conditoner for Color Treated Hair, and the sheer Lacquer Micro Fine Finishing Spray. The Color Lustre Shampoo “is infused with musk rose oil and goji berry extract. It lathers into a luxurious foam to help nourish hair and…

    Fall Haircut: Lob

    If you keep up with me on Instagram stories then you’ve already seen my haircut! So it’s been a few years since I’ve chopped my hair. I get a trim (1-2 inches) every 2 months or so, but it’s been a while since I’ve cut a significant amount off. I have been planning to chop it off for a while now. When I last went to get my hair trimmed, in August, my hair stylist told me that I might have enough to donate the next time I came. I was really in to the idea of donating my hair, but that proved to be more difficult that I thought it…

  • Bombay Hair - Rose Gold Wand


    Bombay Hair Curling Wand

    I hope your week is off to a good start! I was so tired at work yesterday I felt like I could just fall asleep at any point. But after work I felt much more awake (go figure). I stopped by my condo to see the new appliances that were delivered, went to Home Depot to pick up my light fixtures, and did some other things and didn’t feel nearly as tired as I did during the day. Hopefully today I will not feel so sluggish at work! If you follow my Instagram Stories then you may remember me saying that I’ve been playing around/practicing with a new hair tool for…

    Knotted Headband

    As many of you probably already know, knotted headbands are super popular right now. I love the look on other people so I wanted to try it out for myself. I didn’t want to spend a ton on a headband since 1) it’s a headband and 2) I didn’t know if I’d like it on myself. And you might be surprised to find out that some headbands are expensive! So I found a company on Amazon that sells sets of 3 knotted headbands. I saw one or two people post about them on Instagram and they said that the headbands didn’t hurt their heads at all, so that sounded good…
