My Weekend In Short...

Ah, Krispy Kreme doughnuts!

Dunkin Doughnuts Double Chocolate Cake Doughnut. Yeah, it didn't occur to me that I had two doughnut trips this weekend until now.

Gap tees on the cheap!

Red Canvas Women's Classics
Got some new red TOMS. I like my other TOMS so much, I had to get another pair.

Sunshine all weekend long!

This isn't the swing set I used this weekend, but close enough. I forgot how fun swing sets are.

Paul Newman Pineapple Salsa is AMAZING! I recommend this to everyone!

Thursday Has Come!

Most of  my Thursday was pretty uneventful. Well, that is until I got my Vera Bradley shipment in the mail. Now, I'm not a mega Vera fan, but I do like some of her stuff. I'd been searching for a well made wallet that could fit all my stuff but was having no luck. My luck changed and Vera saved the day! Both Vera items were on sale, plus I had an online coupon deal. Gosh, I love stuff on sale. :)
Eye glass holder

Wallet- it's accordian style on the inside, so I don't have to worry about stuff falling out!

They bought us Starbucks at work. I'm not mad at that! Vanilla beans are tasty.

Happy Thursday!

It's Time To Tease...

The Beauty Department website could not be cooler. They have beauty tips on anything and everything you can imagine. For me, I appreciate how easy they make their tutorials. If you have visited them, check them out at www.thebeautydepartment.com .



If Adele doesn’t make you want to get your teasing brushes out then I don’t know who does. She’s become such an inspiration in the beauty industry and we think she’s doing a great job at keeping her looks fresh + new. Lately her hair has reached perfectly epic heights. So let’s discuss a few things that are vital for volume.

1. Teasing/smoothing brushes we’ve all seen versions of a teasing brush, but the reason I love the ones by R Session Tools is because they’re made in different sizes. You know when you finish teasing and you have that one little dip? This is the perfect size to go in and perfect without having to brush out and start over again! Another plus is that when you’re finished with an updo and it looks too “done”, if you brush ever so slightly in the opposite direction (toward your face), you’ll loosen up the look and get those romantic whispy pieces. These ones tend to sell out sell fast. If you can’t get your hands on them, THESE are also great!
2. Ocean Spritz you can use whatever beach spray you like. I prefer this one because after washing the hair never feels dry, and that happens a lot with salty beach sprays– they can suck the moisture right out of the hair. The main reason for using this in conjunction with a teasing brush is to build up resistance. Sometimes when you put mousse or styling spray at the root, it dissipates because that’s what it’s supposed to do. Then you go to tease it and it slides right through. With a little bit of beach spray, you build up a texture on top of each hair that doesn’t soak in and go away. I do it when the hair is about 50% dry. I spray 2-5 pumps into my hands and then rub it in to my roots. This helps your brush or comb get a better grip on the hair it’s supposed to tease.
3. The Rat Roll Sometimes, no matter how hard you try and how long you keep your arms over your head, you’re just never going to get the as much volume as you want in your hair. Enter the rat roll. This thing looks freaky but if you get it in the color closest to your hair color, hiding it is no big deal. It’s also amazing for vintage styles.
4. Teasing comb these are visibly different from the teasing/smoothing brushes, but the main difference is that this comb is pretty INTENSE. In my opinion, this is more for your short haired grandma. Using this on longer hair can be really hard and could result in a tangled disaster. If you’re confident that you can be the boss of this comb, just use it to start a good teasing base. I will say, this Once you get going you shouldn’t use this.
5. Large Bobby Pins I just found this super cool combo pack, which I’ve never seen before. Typically, I use large bobby pins to “anchor” my client’s hair. I do the finishing touches with smaller ones, but when you need to hold serious weight (like when you’re trying to secure the rat roll) you need a more supportive bobby pin.
Last but not least, if you want a one-stop-shop, we’re kind of living for THIS KIT! It has the rat roll, bobby pins, teasing brush and all kinds of other goodness in one kit! Amazing, affordable holiday gift for the bestie.

Barrel Weaver

I had been wanting to get a barrel weaver for awhile. My hope was it would give me  effortless looking beach hair. So far, I'm pretty pleased with the turn out. It looks like my hair after I get out of the pool, which to me, is pretty cool looking. I have pretty thick, wavy hair, so it holds pretty well.
I got it at Sally's Beauty Supply while there was a deal going on and I got a curling iron with it for free! I made sure to get the Deep Waver because it makes the waves not so tight. I didn't want the crimped hair look, just a nice loose wave.

Tis The Season For Shorts!

It's so hard finding shorts that aren't basically panties or that aren't frumpy looking. The right shorts can be worn during the day and then out for a night on the town. The shoes options are endless for shorts: heels and wedges will elongate your legs and without a doubt will cause heads to turn, get a pair of flip flops and stay casual, or even pull on some tennis shoes and still look stylish.

Crafty Fashion!

Who doesn't love some crafts? I do!

Framed shopping bags

I have no idea who came up with this but it is quite clever. If I ever shop at one of these stores, I'll for sure be framing it. It really classes up this little makeup area.
Sweet Verbena's cute bracelet idea!
They show you step by step how to make these bracelets. It's super easy to make. Great gift idea.

These hangers would spruce up any closet. Hangers, ribbon/fabric, and glue and you've got these delightful closet decorations.

Pinned Image
Because I'm Addicted came up with this idea and I love it.
Ok, so this idea is brilliant. You can make your own printed shorts! I don't have a lot of shorts I'm willing to write on, so I think I'm going to find a a pair at the thrift store and try this out. Worst case, I only spent a couple of dollars.

Bethanny Ever After is about to come on. I love Bravo sooo much.

Love the orange heels with this pink dress.
