Beachy, Lived-In Hair Tutorial


Happy Friday! Today, I’m dishing up a hair tutorial that I filmed yesterday on Facebook Live in collaboration with Folica. It was my first time to film a live tutorial, which was an interesting experience. (I enjoyed it, actually! Might need to start filming more.)

One of the perks of Facebook Live is that viewers can ask you questions live, however, for some reason, a glitch occurred and the comments didn’t come through – so the second video in this post is me addressing the questions that I saw after the fact. Hopefully, this won’t happen in the future.

The tools I am using are the Sedu Revolution 4000i Hair Dryer and the Sedu Revolution 1″ Black Onyx Titanium Styling Iron.

Hair products mentioned are Josh Rosebrook Lift, Josh Rosebrook Styling Cream, and One Love Organics Dry Shampoo. All green, of course!

And here are some of the viewer questions answered.

Giveaway time! The lovely folks at Folica are generously providing one Sedu hair dryer and one Sedu styling iron for a lucky winner! Please see below for details on how to enter.

And! If that wasn’t enough, starting this Sunday (June 19th), you can get 30% off Sedu styling tools with the code HEAT3025. Now, that ain’t no measly discount, folks. 30 PERCENT. Thanks, Folica!

Odds and Ends


1. I can’t deny it, you all. I love Snapchat. And it seems I’m not the only one.

2. OMG, please watch this video. Hilarious. First Child vs. Third Child.

3. High-functioning depression. We can’t overlook the overachievers.

4. Tweets that will ring true to married folk.

5. I’m in love with this dad. And that baby?! COME ON. So cute.

6. I’m currently en route to the Riviera Maya – will be wearing this the majority of the time. This too. Okay, and wishing I had these.

7. WHUT. Netflix will start streaming every Disney movie in September. My kids are going to freak.

8. Font geeks will love this. Arial – “wishing you had Helvetica.” Ha.

9. Why sitting is bad for you. Take note, fellow computer-starers.

10. Do you have two conflicting sides of yourself? This hit home.

11. WHOAH. What a wonderful gift for classmates. So lovely.

Happy weekend to you all. I’ll be soaking up the sun in Mexico with Dustin – our first trip away in many, many years!



Summer’s Here: Get Glowing with W3LL People


I recently tried some new (to me) products by W3LL PEOPLE, and was really, really pleased. My first impression of the products was great, but what clinched the deal was when my husband mentioned how “glowy” I looked. At first, I figured it was a coincidence, but when I used the same combination of products a few days later, he mentioned the glow factor again.


Here’s what I am wearing in the above photo, all by W3LL PEOPLE. (Adore this company… they are all about natural ingredients + advanced performance + social responsibility. Doesn’t get much better.)


Narcissist Stick Foundation in Shade #2 – I’m a sucker for anything in a stick, and this foundation is fantastic. The #2 shade is a perfect match for my skin, and it just melts right into the skin, blending beautifully while leaving a really nice luminous finish.

Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer in Light – Great for covering undereye circles, as well as an eye primer on the lids before applying eye shadow. No creasing!

Bio Brightener Stick – Just wrote about this highlighter a few weeks ago in my Green Beauty Highlighter Showdown – this one won the top spot for me.

Bio Bronzer Stick – Perfect bronze – not too orange, not too red. I would imagine it would look great on almost all skin tones. Love to put a bit just below my cheekbones. (I also put a bit of the Vapour Aura Multi-Use Blush in Spark on the apples of my cheeks for a pop of peachy color.)

Nudist Colorbalm in Shade #3 – This sheer cherry shade is always in my bag. It’s my no-brainer lip color.

Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara in Black – This is a top mascara in the green beauty realm for me – consistency is great, length and volume are great, however, slight downfall in that it smudges a bit underneath my eyes.


A bit of smudging won’t keep me from their new mascara colors, though. Brown, Purple, and Blue are the new additions, and they are super fun. Check out the blue!


(Taken before the mascara dried fully. When it does, the color is not as intense, and I felt, more wearable for the day.)

I’m really taken with these W3LL PEOPLE products, and if you’re interested in one or a few, Pharmaca has some great discounts right now. Save 15% when you sign up for the newsletter or save 10% with the code TENOFF, and, as always, free shipping on orders of $35 or more. They have a great selection of green beauty brands. Happy Summer!
