• Red Carpet Looks for Less

    I love red carpet season! The stars, designer dresses, hair, makeup…. ah I can’t get enough. Never did I dream that these looks were possible at home, but I was proved wrong after finding these look-a-like dresses at VERY affordable price points. Don’t believe me? Take a gander at the gowns Lupita Nyong’o and Jessica Biel wore at the Oscars next to the almost identical David’s Bridal gown.

  • Putting My Best Hair Forward this New Year

    There is no doubt that this has been a hectic month! I have spent so much time shopping, decorating, and entertaining I that I’ve hardly had any ME time! Getting to the salon is so time consuming this time of year so I decided to give the Rowenta Inspiration Pro Auto Sensor Hair Dryer a try. Without having the time and energy for the salon my Rowenta gave me a great blowout that lasts all night. Ladies it’s time to look your best, strut your stuff, enjoy a cocktail and celebrate the holiday’s looking your best! Cheers!

    Shout out to Anne and J-Law for scoring their statues!!! Thanks to these lovely ladies, we’re obsessed all over again with pulling off the confident glam look required to successfully strut with red carpet purpose. Bottom line?

  • THE Beauty Tool: Q-tips

    Not just for your ears, ladies. I seriously use Q-tips for all things, beauty related. DIY manicures, applying eye makeup, lip stain…the list is really endless.

    I did a polka dot mani the other day and the Q-tips were ESSENTIAL. Super cheap and always around the house, amaze.
