Nordstrom Spring Beauty Event

Now that spring has sprung, Nordstrom is celebrating the new season with beauty’s hottest trends!

Midnight Bronze

Midnight Bronze: It all starts with a flawless complexion, and bronzer adds a warm glow for an overall radiance. Hints of gold on the eye and even lips add a cool metallic touch. For a more dramatic effect, try a flash of blue on the eye or nail – a pop of aqua or cobalt is perfect for summer!

Pretty striking

Pretty Striking: Bright pink or orange lips, endless lush lashes and faintly flushed cheeks steal the spotlight on spring beauty.

jf curling iron big barrel

I have been looking for a large rod curling iron and I finally found a great one. The John Frieda Loose Curls 1 1/4″ Curling Iron is perfect for big loose waves.

The the 11 different settings  helps me get just the right heat to style without frying my hair. I love how this curling iron smooths my hair and eliminates frizz while creating gorgeous loose, curls.

John Frieda Curling Iron, Loose Curls 1 1/4″ $24.99
It has superior ionic anti-frizz conditioning and a ceramic coated barrel to protect your lovely locks. It heats up to 400 degrees F in as little as 30 seconds so you can get out of the house quicker or use those extra minutes to snooze. The high temperature is especially great for hair that normally won’t take curl. The LCD display shows the temperature. Auto shut off will shut your iron off in case you would forget to shut it off. The swivel cord helps you avoid a tangled cord. You will also have an easier time fitting the iron into a narrow drawer because of the cord. A heat mat is included.

  • Definition & Curl
  • Create voluminous waves with a 1½-inch curling iron powered by advanced ionic technology.
  • True ceramic heat reaches up to 400°F/205°C for salon quality results while 11 professional digital settings create customized style for all hair types and textures.
  • Use lower heat setting for fine hair; medium settings for medium hair; the highest settings for coarse or thick hair.

 

Available for purchase at Ulta and online at drugstore.com.

Allure’s April 2014 Cover Girl Lauren Conrad Shares Wedding Planning Tips

2la57qo

She looks amazing in these photos. One of the few MTV girls who seems to have her head on straight and used her fame to create a career.

Lauren Conrad met her fiancé, law student William Tell, on Valentine’s Day two years ago. (They were set up by a mutual friend.) “We’ve set a date, but we’re actually not telling anybody. We’ll send out the save-the-dates, but until then…” the 28-year-old says with the wisdom of someone who has been a paparazzi target for a decade. “It’ll be about 200 people, but I’m still figuring things out.” We asked her how she’s planning a wedding while her fiancé studies.

Gauge his interest. “I ask him if he cares before I start asking questions. So I’ll say, ‘I’m looking at food or flowers or whatever,’ and before I even get into it, I say, ‘I want to know if you care about this.’ Sometimes he does, and sometimes he doesn’t.”

Be fine with his answer. “I’m glad [Tell] doesn’t care about the flowers. I wanted him to see sketches of the dress, but he said absolutely not. I’m wearing it for him! But if he doesn’t want to see it, I don’t want to make him. He loves music–that’s his life–so he picked the band.”

Time yourself. “I’ll ask him, ‘Is this a good time?’ I keep a list. So when it’s a good time, I’ll say, ‘OK, just real quick…’ And I keep it short. If you don’t do it in ten minutes, then you lose him.”

Don’t stress. “One of my girlfriends got married a couple years ago, and I talked to her the next day. She was like, ‘Yesterday I was a bride; today I’m just married.’ She was so bummed. Are you kidding me?! My friends who enjoyed their weddings the most were the easygoing girls. Things are going to go wrong; not everything is going to be perfect. But at the end of the day, we’re married and happy, and it’s great.”

“Take any trend you want and relax it. That’s how California does it,” Conrad says of her beach babe style. “If it’s silk button-up shirts that are in, you probably don’t button them all the way, and you cuff a sleeve, you know what I mean? It’s almost like how your outfit looks at the end of the day.”

“Your bed is for sleep and sex,” Conrad says her busy schedule and habit of working in bed. The author and designer also has a wedding to plan, as she and former Something Corporate guitarist William Tell became engaged in October 2013.
