INTRODUCING…Acai Brazilian Dry Oil!

Acai Brazilian Dry Oil by Brazilian Blowout is an amazing new nourishing, non-greasy and residue-free formula that can be used daily to smooth, reconstruct and improve the health of ALL hair types.

I’ve been using this for about a week now, and OMG what did I do before it? I rub a small amount on my damp hair before blow drying, and after my hair is styled, I can FEEL the difference. I love the stuff. It makes my hair softer, shinier and feel more healthy. I can’t imagine how long this bottle will last me – it takes so little each time! It’s amazing!

I’m not the only one in love with it – ‘Twilight’ actress Ashley Greene loves it too!

We have long envied her glossy, long locks for quite some time now, and just recently discovered one of her newest hair obsessions.

Turns out, the adorable actress coats her hair in Brazilian Blowout’s Acai Brazilian Dry Oil, a hydrating mix of annatto seed, Camu Camu berry and (you guessed it!) acai oils.

Not only does this nourishing combination help heal fried follicles, but it also protects hair from oh-so-harmful UVA and UVB rays, which are just as bad for your hair as they are your skin!

So, if you’re anything like Greene who’s constantly trying out fancy new styles that can wreak havoc on your hair, try this fancy formula to strengthen your strands!

Here’s more about this product!

  • Features a blend of Acai Berry Oil, Annatto Seed Oil, and Camu Camu Berry Oil that
  • Penetrates the hair shaft to heal and hydrate dry, damaged hair
  • Strengthens hair, enhances elasticity, and locks in moisture to create lustrous shine

Our hearts are breaking…

I’m sitting here trying to work, and I’m having a hard time focusing on anything other than what’s happening in Connecticut. My heart is breaking for everyone in Connecticut. What has happened to us as a nation? From what I’ve seen, they’re saying almost 30 people are dead, and half of them are children. Early reports suggest it was the father of a child who attended the school. Unbelievable tragedy. Unbelievable.

I am praying so hard for each and every single person involved.


UPDATE: I’m gonna take a break from posting for a bit. It seems horrible/wrong to continue talking about fluff and entertainment on such a tragic day. We’ll be back shortly…

Mini Makeup Maven Talia Castellano Becomes an Honorary CoverGirl

Talia Castellano, a 13-year-old from Florida who is battling two forms of cancer, has become an internet sensation with her makeup tutorials.

CoverGirl has made the young girl an honorary CoverGirl, which was announced on the Ellen Degeneres show this afternoon.

The current roster of CoverGirls reads like a who’s-who list of Hollywood beauties: Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore, Sofia Vergara, Ellen DeGeneres, Queen Latifah and more.

The freshest face to represent the cosmetics brand, however, isn’t a leading lady you’ve seen on the big screen or on the stage. But maybe she’s inspired you — either to switch up your eye shadow routine, or even just smile.

Love it!
