Red Carpets are Coming! Red Carpets are Coming!

January 10, 2013

I love red carpet hair, but I hate creating red carpet hair. If you’re looking for some easy ways to fancify your tresses for an upcoming event, look no further than my Lazy Girl’s Guide to Red Carpet Hair. If I can do it, you can do it. Fist bump.


Ebooks I’m Loving Right Now

November 28, 2012

1. From Your Freezer To Your Family: Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes I don’t even know where to begin with this eCookbook because I love it so much. It’s like the perfect trifecta of slow cooker love, organization, and healthy meals. Now, if one of those three descriptors interests you, put this on your list, however, […]


Hello. I’ve Been Writing Lots of Stuff.

November 16, 2012

1. How cute is the above graphic by Style United? I loved that they used my handwriting, even if it’s wayyyyyy less cool than my husband’s. 2. Right on the tail of my bootie obsession (seriously, WHEN ARE THE MADEWELL BOOTS GOING TO GET HERE?) is my hat obsession. Here are 10 of my favorites. […]


Hair Inspiration for Little Girls

October 15, 2012

I’ve posted hundreds of photos of hair inspiration over the years, but I’ve never really done a roundup of hairstyles for the younger set. Now, as you can see above, I’m a huge proponent of the toddler bob. Nothing could be cuter! (I know, I know…I’m a little biased.) Regardless of length, though, little girls’ […]


Step Away From the Spray Bottle, Sir

August 22, 2012

Over the past few years, we’ve rarely strayed from Wito’s signature hairstyle. You’ve seen it before…the swoopy, longer bangs in the front…short, but not too short in the back… It just suits him. Not that the haircut doesn’t have its drawbacks, though. It can get a little hot and sweaty all up in there, and […]


Sideswept Bangs: Control Your Cowlicks!

August 21, 2012

The past 6 years of my follicular existence have always included some sort of bang situation on my forehead. Short, long, blunt, sideswept…you name it, I’ve done it. It seems I’ve settled on a sideswept look – mainly because they are so much easier to style (and grow out) than heavy, blunt bangs, but also […]


So Smitten With This Hair

July 16, 2012

Yet another Pinterest gem, I came across a photo of the most lovely, sun-kissed hair color a few weeks ago. I clicked through to Box No. 216  and found an absolute mecca of gorgeous hair. (Seriously, I don’t even want to tell you how much time I’ve spent on the website.) Turns out Box No. […]


Odds and Ends

July 13, 2012

Duchamp’s Answering Machine – best colors ever 1. I completed Couch to 5K earlier this week. (Ran 3 miles without stopping at a 10:30-minute mile pace. Woo!) So, in honor of that little achievement, I posted a newbie’s running guide at Babble. It barely scrapes the surface of things I would like to talk about […]


Odds and Ends

June 20, 2012

1. Drumroll, please! The winner of a fabulous pair of Salt Optics frames is #40, Jenna. Congratulations, Jenna! You will be rocking some frames very shortly. 2. Last night, I attended the launch of Wendy Bellissimo’s new line of clothing and accessories for children. I die. The end. (I also stood next to Sharon Osbourne […]

A Mini-Hair Thursday Makeover – The Toddler Bob

April 4, 2012

I love Whoorlita’s hair. It’s finely-textured, perfectly straight and has the loveliest natural highlights. However, it’s been looking a little, um, straggly lately. Case in point. Sweet little toddler mullet. If you don’t mind, let’s digress and briefly chat about the photo on the right. You see, as Wita approaches her 2nd birthday, it seems […]


Odds and Ends

March 31, 2012

The Hair Photo a Day Project

March 30, 2012

Have you all heard of Fat Mum Slim and Pantene’s Photo-a-Day Collaboration? Obviously, I’m a fan of Fat Mum Slim’s Instagram challenges, and I think I might need to join this one a day late. The best part about this particular photo challenge is that it leads up to April 27th, when Pantene and Seventeen […]


My Pantene Commercial: Behind the Scenes (The Finale!)

March 29, 2012

Part one here. Part two here. Part three here. I know, I know. Don’t cry for me, Argentina. My behind-the-scenes series is coming to end. (Wait, are those tears of sadness or utter relief that you don’ t have to read this stuff anymore?) So we’ve covered the fitting, the sleepless night beforehand, the 5:45 […]


Hair Tutorial Love

March 22, 2012

I don’t think I’ll ever see the day when I’ll be able to post a video tutorial without cringing the moment I hit publish. You are your own worst enemy, right? So you can imagine how excited I get when I see photos of you all rocking the latest hair tutorials. Here are some great […]


My Pantene Commercial: Behind the Scenes (Part Three)

March 21, 2012

Part one here. Part two here. Let’s just rename this post to The Swish. Isn’t that what it’s all about? The infamous hair swish. You guys, I did a lot of swishing. A LOT OF SWISHING. Like, approximately 3 hours of non-stop swishing. Here’s how it went down. I stood on a specific spot in […]
