The Best Detangler Brush Just Got Better!

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Hair

My favorite detangler brush now comes in a SPARKLY version! Could this brush get any better?!

I love my sleep and at night after I shower, I barely blow dry my hair. So, when I wake up in the morning it is so tangled. I had a really hard time brushing it. It hurt so bad! Then a friend bought me the Michel Mercier Detangler Brush for Christmas and it made detangling my hair so much easier!

Sparkly Michel Mercier Detangler BrushIt is not completely pain free, but it is such an improvement. I think that as long as you start at the bottom and work your way up, this brush works perfectly. I like that the handle is long and easy to hold. It work great whether my hair is wet or dry and it never slips from my hand.

I use it on my niece too (who turns four today OMG). She hated having her hair brushed before we bought this and now she sometimes will fall asleep while I’m brushing it that’s how easy it is.

Did I mention how much I love the new design? It is so cute and I love that it’s sparkly!! These will make great gifts this year for Christmas for anyone.

I will be placing my order today + will post pictures as soon as I get my new sparkly brush!

I’d love to hear what you think of the new design, or your thoughts on the brush overall!!

The Best Colored Hair Clip-Ins

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Hair


Lately, I have really wanted to experiment with color in my hair!

I have always had super dark brown/black hair, which I love, but sometimes it can be pretty boring. I don’t want to dye it because I can’t have brightly colored hair at work. I’m also too afraid to do something so drastic.

Well, while I was on Pinterest the other week, I saw that Demi Lovato endorses colored hair extensions now. They are called Secret Color Hair Extensions. Of course, I ordered them! They finally arrived and I really really love them! They make me wish I could dye my hair. ):

They come in several colors and they are super easy to put in your hair. It literally takes seconds! I had to cut mine because they were too long, but now they blend perfectly.

I also bought some other colored ones from Etsy. They have the best stuff on there. I could spend ALL day looking at the beautiful items on Etsy.

Anyways, I just wanted to share how much I love colored extensions now. If you are thinking about trying them, I would definitely go with Secret Color Extensions from Demi Lovato or …… They are inexpensive and I really loved them. Plus, they look super cute!

I’d love to answer any questions, or hear what you think about either of these colored extensions.

Sally Hansen Gel Nails Review

Posted by at in Favorite Products, Nails

I absolutely love nail polish and having my nails painted, BUT I hate when they scuff right after I paint them or chip the very next day. So, I would spend tons of money on gel nails every month. Then I realized how much I was actually spending and went back to regular nail polish.

Sally Hansen recently came out with a Gel Nail Polish Kit, but I didn’t really want to do all the work involved with it. I didn’t want to buy the light, or have to use the tin foil to get the polish off. So, I never tried the kit that comes in the box from Sally Hansen.

The other day I was in CVS though, and saw that they had a Top Coat that you could buy that would give you instant Gel Nails. So, obviously I had to try it. I bought the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat  and a super bright color to end my summer with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Tidal Wave.

This stuff is amazing! It goes on super smooth and easy because Sally Hansen Nail Polish has the best nail brush. It is thicker then other brushes so you only need a few swipes on the nail. It dried really quickly and I had an amazing no-chip manicure in no time at all!


I put two coats of the Tidal Wave polish on. Then I used the Miracle Top Coat and I was done. I didn’t use a base coat because it said that I didn’t need it. I have now had my bright blue nails for 6 days and still no chips or scoffs in them. I won’t be using anything but Sally Hansen Gel Nail Polish from now on. It would be a waste of my time to go back to regular polish and have to do touch ups all the time.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this incredible nail polish, or any tips or stories you may have!

The 5 Best Tips for Wearing Hair Extensions

Posted by at in Hair


Tease Your Way to the Top!

Extensions are the easiest option when it comes to adding volume. You simply put them in and head out the door. But in order to get that much needed extra volume on top, you will definitely need a teasing comb. It’s a good idea to tease the back of your head and also wear you are going to lay the headband. This will make your hair less smooth, so the extensions stay in place for all day wear. It will also help to cover the headband, so no one knows your secret!


Make it Match!

To make your extensions blend in better, add a little shine serum to your hair before applying the strands. This will make your hair look super soft and silky, which will match the extensions perfectly! I really like Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum. It penetrates deep into the hair, makes it smooth, and cuts down on drying time.



Turn Them Upside Down!

If you are using extensions with clips, then place them n the direction your hair will be going. If you’ll be rocking a ponytail or updo, then place the clips upward. They will go the same way as the hair then and look super natural. It will feel weird and look weird if you place them the other way. My favorite clip-in extensions are from Luxy Hair. They feel natural and are so smooth and silky.



Length is Crucial!

Make sure your extensions are only slightly longer then your hair or at the same level. If they are too long, they don’t look good. You have to blend them well to have longer extensions. You could try layering them yourself or even go into a salon and they will do it for you. I like cutting them myself because I know what looks best in my hair and don’t have to worry about someone else cutting them too short.



Go Au Naturale!

On a more day to day basis, you can still wear extensions for a relaxed look. Make sure you wet them the night before and let them air dry. This will get rid of some of the shine, and give you a more natural look. You can also use foam rollers to give a nice lose wave to the extensions for a more natural beachy look.

Burn 200 More Calories Everyday!

Posted by at in Workouts


It’s totally possible to burn more calories everyday. You just have to make the decision of whether or not you are willing to take the small steps towards a healthier lifestyle.

Your body naturally burns calories all day long, but who wouldn’t want to lose more? With these easy-to-follow daily routines you could burn 200 more calories everyday!

Walk everywhere you can!

If you are going to eat lunch at work, and are within walking distance of restaurants, just walk there. If you need to stop at the post office and it’s just down the road, then take a brisk walk. Make sure you always have a pair of sneakers in your car, so that when the option to walk presents itself you can do it. You’ll be saving on gas, helping the environment, AND burning more calories.

Take the stairs!

I know how tempting it is to take the elevator everyday, but the stairs will get your heart pumping and burn a few more calories each day. No matter where you are, the mall, work, school, opt for taking the stairs everywhere you go. You’ll be burning big time calories in no time with this step!


Play outside!

Many of us have children to keep us on our toes. So, this is an easy way for us to burn more calories. Take the kids on a bike ride or go for a walk with the stroller. You’ll be spending more time with your kids and burning tons of calories at the same time.

Park far away!

It is such a pain to try and find spots close to stores or work anyway, so this is the perfect time to squeeze in some additional exercise. If you park farther away from work you’ll burn extra calories on the way in and out everyday. You could even park on the total opposite side of the building to make your walk even longer.

Walk the dog!

Your dog probably needs a certain amount of exercise each day to get that hyper-ness out of his system. So, a walk would be great for both you and him. If you make it a routine, you doggy will love you and so will your body.


Laugh more!

Laughing burns calories too! What better way to burn calories than by having a good laugh. You could go to a comedy show or stay at home and watch a funny movie. Find something that makes you laugh and enjoy every single calorie-burning minute of it!

Secrets to Achieving the Perfect Ponytail

Posted by at in Hair

Perfect Ponytail Secrets

Secret 1

Wash and shampoo your hair. Unlike many updoes, it is more beneficial to have clean hair when attempting to create the perfect pony. It also helps if your hair is wet so that the rubber band holds tighter and keeps those wispy pieces down.

Secret 2

Prevent a baggy pony by putting your head back. This will give place natural tension on the rubber band and help it to leave your hair with a smooth and finished polish.

Secret 3

For that super long ponytail that we all dream of, pick yourself up some tensions. If you don’t already have some, these would be my suggestions. Secret Extensions are very low maintenance and take seconds to put in. Luxy hair has super great quality, but is a little pricier and takes more time to put in, but definitely worth it.

Secret 4

Find the perfect height for your ponytail by drawing an invisible line from the direction of your jaw line to the back of your head. That level is where your pony will be most flattering.

Secret 5

Straight hair makes for the perfect pony. So, be sure to blow your hair out straight with a round brush. That way it still has some volume on top, but will be super smooth and silky throughout the rest of your head. I use the Brushlab Jumbo Hair Brush because it works great and my hair always feels silky afterwards. Plus, it’s like the best round brush out there!

Secret 6

Placement is everything! Your perfect placement is dependent on your hair type. Thinner hair is best placed lower on the head. This will flatter the jaw line and look best. Thicker hair works best higher up on the head. It will create the perfect looking cheekbones (along with a little blush).

Secret 7

Pull a piece of hair from the ponytail and flawlessly wrap it around the pony. This will give you a seamless and classic look in the quickest way possible!

Secret 8

Use friendly elastic to secure your pony. Never use any rubber bands with no special coating. These will rip your hair out upon removal and, of course, really hurt! Blax Hair Elastics are seriously the best and they won’t leave your hair damaged.

Fall Hair Ideas For a Fresh New Look

Posted by at in Hair

Red is always a daring style to try in the fall. I died my hair red in the beginning of September and I love it. It was so worth the risk! If you are going to get it done though, go to a stylist and get it done right. Red is a hair color you don’t want to mess around with, especially if you don’t know hair color. I like to use Roux Color Refresh Mask to keep my color in too. I mix the red and burgundy because I have dark hair and I love the hint of purple it gives.


Make it Shine!

You may not even know it, but summer months do some serious damage to hair. To help restore hair, try using a deep conditioner. The Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask is what my hairdresser uses when I get my hair done and it works great. It’s a little pricey though. A cheaper version that I really like is It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Conditoner. Leaves you hair feeling so soft and smooth and I’ve noticed that it greatly helps with my split ends.


Do Something Bold!

Try something different. If you have never tried extensions, fall is the perfect time to start….just not on a windy day! I love extensions. I have multiple sets for different purposes. My plain old everyday extensions are from Secret Extensions. I have to wear two of them because they are a little thin. My favorite for special occasions is Luxy Hair. These are super thick and come in separate pieces for perfect placement. If you dare to try something REALLY different then try Jessica Simpson Clip-In Bang. They are great for totally changing your look!


Be Totally Sheek!

If you have not yet tried a totally pulled back bun or a pin straight pony, now is the time to do so. Blow hair out straight and be sure to use heat protectant. When you are done wait a few minutes for your hair to flatten a little. Add a dime sized amount of smoothing serum and pull your hair pack into a sleek bun. A very fine-toothed comb can help you to achieve that sleek look. If you have awful flyways like me, don’t forget to use some hairspray. It really works if you apply it with a toothbrush.


Don’t forget the Accessories!

I always feel like my hair is slightly boring. Even if I style it and it looks great, I still feel like something is missing. Well that’s because we often forget about accessories. They can totally change your look and revamp your style. So, don’t forget those headbands or headpieces during your next night out with the girls….or even just tomorrow at work.
