We are starting to feel a bit of the crisp cool weather of Fall and along with school starting September means New York Fashion Week! I’m looking forward to all the new Fall trends and checking out the hair and makeup looks that will be trending this Fall and Winter.

Did you know TRESemmé is the official hair care sponsor of New York Fashion Week? This year celebrates their 15th consecutive season as the official hair care sponsor of the New York Fashion Week! To celebrate this milestone, the #1 styling brand in the US will have a few distinct spaces at NYFW. Both spaces will feature custom-built salons to offer guests complimentary styling inspired by past and present runway hair looks, using TRESemmé’s diverse portfolio of products! How great is that?



In addition, at the Moynihan Station Salon, the brand will have a co-branded VIP lounge with E!, marking this the third season collaborating with the network. TRESemmé’s sponsored show lineup includes a mix of existing and new designer partners. These brands include Rachel Zoe, Rebecca Minkoff, Marissa Webb, Banana Republic, Diane Von Furstenberg, Carolina Herrera, BCBG, Hervé Leger and Misha Noonoo, led by TRESemmé Lead Stylist Jeanie Syfu and Orlando Pita.

Walgreen’s Has Everything To Start a Happy, Healthy and Beautiful New Year! #STARTSHERE


Jocelyn and I have been friends for 29 years now and part of that long term friendship is sharing our goals with each other. We both sat down to pick our top two resolutions for 2015 and wanted to share them with you. Walgreens gave us some fantastic products to help us achieve our goals and even better they are letting us give one of our lucky readers and AMAZING prize package. So keep on reading to see what is on our resolution list this year and make sure to enter the contest!

Erin’s New Year’s Resolutions:


#1 Drink more water.

I think health in general is dependent on getting enough water something I have been lacking. So I have the Contigo Autoseal Grace Water Bottle to help me with this goal.  This BPA-free water bottle features a one-touch AUTOSEAL lid that automatically seals between sips to eliminate spills and leaks. Since I started using it I have already doubled my water intake!



#2 Move More.

I like working out but I can be prone to a hard workout in the morning then getting locked into my desk all day. I am excited to be trying out the  Walgreens Activity Tracker which is way better that  your momma’s old pedometer. This cool little bracelet tracks my steps, calories burned, miles per day and also tracks my sleep. On top of all those nifty features it also shows my texts and phone call so I can keep in the loop even when racking up the miles. My kids loving checking to see how many steps I have gone and its a great reminder to get up and move.

Jocelyn’s New Year’s Resolutions:


This has been on my Resolution list for years, and this year I’m finally doing something about it! Erin and I started a book club we call “My Book Club Has a Wine Problem.” We decided it was high time we start reading more – and this year I plan to read, READ, READ! We’ve knocked out a couple books already, and I’m currently tackling the 500-page “Marie Antionette: The Journey” by Antionia Fraser. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds for me!


This is a huge problem of mine. My day-to-day life is currently 70 MPH. I need to take a step back, and slow the heck down. I fill my days with so many activities and unnecessary things that I’m not taking the time to slow down and enjoy my life. Enjoy my husband, enjoy my kids. My boys are 12 and 14 and life is happening way to quickly. They will be gone before I know it! I need to really try and tone down my activity level this year and spend some time really focusing on the things that are really important. I think as adults we all get so swept up in our day-to-day lives that we really forget to slow down and enjoy what we actually have. With my kids getting older, I need to grasp onto as much as I can – while I still am able! Soon they won’t want me interfering with anything (but I’ll still try!).

Sponsored Post: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley teams up with Moroccanoil to celebrate six inspirational women!

The amazing beauty brand Moroccanoil has launched an all-new series that examines what it means to lead an inspired life. Who better to examine a beautiful life than British supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley!

Morrocanoil followed several inspiring woman to celebrate their breakthroughs in beauty. The six women, who include Rosie, tell their story in a mini-series directed by actress Bryce Dallas Howard.

Moroccanoil is honored to present INSPIRED, a film series that celebrates the lives and work of inspiring women. Here, they introduce them all: Rosie, Chrissy, Jessica, Rebecca, Kavita and Allyson—the six women whose extraordinary stories we’ll follow in the episodes to come.

Here is Rosie’s video. Dang, could she be any more gorgeous??

I have used Moroccanoil on my hair for over a year now, and I am OBSESSED. I have this product on hand…. always….. and it just completely transforms my hair.



Moroccanoil® Treatment’s versatile, nourishing and residue-free formula can be used as a conditioning, styling and finishing tool. It blends perfectly with other products and even speeds up drying time. This treatment for hair completely transforms and repairs as its formula transports lost proteins for strength; fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine; and antioxidants for protection. It absorbs instantly to fill gaps in hair created by heat, styling and environmental damage.

I’m not alone – Rosie also swears by it! “I love all Moroccanoil products—I’ve actually been using them for many years, even before I became a face for them. The signature hair oil has to be one of my favorite products. It’s very easy to manage, and the texture is just amazing. I apply it to my hair after I shower and then I dry it. It’s just so great for shine and keeping [hair] healthy in general.”

Never heard of Moroccanoil before? Here’s more from the brand!

“At Moroccanoil®, our passion is empowering beautiful transformations. We started with the original Moroccanoil Treatment which revolutionized the haircare industry. We built our reputation on positive word of mouth from runways to salons to editorial spreads. Our antioxidant infused, nutrient rich, innovative formulas are unmatched and provide dramatic results. That is why salon-exclusive Moroccanoil is preferred by professionals and consumers alike — because our products simply work.”
