3 Steps to Gorgeous Curls!

Fall is almost here, which means beautiful crisp weather with little humidity.. translation: Let the great hair days begin! In the summer, it’s always too hot to do any kind of heat styling to your hair and such a waste of time if you’re swimming or doing any kind of outdoor activities. But now with this great fall weather, there aren’t any excuses to have a bad hair day. Get voluminous curls like Selena Gomez.

Love this!!!! Perfection in a pre treatment thermal spray. I love that is protects my hair without weighing it down or leaving it stringy. This is a must have before using my curling iron.

First spray a generous amount of Philip B. Oud Royal Thermal Protection Spray on damp or dry hair. This thermal spray will elevate shine and prevent breakage and split ends as you style, while also adding a light, seductive scent.


If you’re looking for a great and affordable curling iron check out the John Frieda  Volume Curls 1½ inch Barrel curling iron. It’s a user friendly and creates big, beautiful curls.  I love how fast it heats up, just 30 seconds and I can start curling my hair. With variable temps I can set the iron low or high depending on how tight I want the curls.

The twist free cord, and cool tip make it very user friendly. The smooth clips means it doesn’t get stuck in my hair or pulls.  Smooth frizz free curls  and waves that last all day.  A great iron if you are looking for big loose curls or waves.


Next, take your John Frieda by Conair Volume Curls 1 ½ inch Curling Iron and begin sectioning off hair, starting with the bottom layers. Curl hair away from your face to create more volume. For an uneven, messy look, curl randomly starting at different areas on each section.

I have such a tough time finding a hair spray that works with my tempermental hair. Either it doesn’t hold the curl or it leaves it crunchy and stray like. Finally a hair spray made for my crazy hair. I  spritz  a light coat and comb through before using my curling iron. Then once I have style it finish with a quick spray. My hair stays soft and bouncy and my curls last all day.

Finish off with a light spray of KMS HAIRSTAY medium hold spray to lock in the style while allowing flexibility and movement to your hair.

Fig is the new Rose!


I love Fig! Can’t wait to check this out.

Globally acclaimed for their coveted Rose Collection, created from the lushest roses from Turkey, Fresh launches another Turkish delight inspired straight from the stalls of the bazaar, the NEW Sugar Fig Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15. In awe of the colorful spice markets of Istanbul, Fresh Co-Founder Alina Roytberg discovered the sultry, yet sophisticated fig hue.

“The vendors dry the fruit right after it is harvested so the hues, aromas, and flavors are incredibly vibrant. The fig’s rich burgundy skin sparkles with the fresh kiss of the sun. Sugar Fig captures this stunning opalescent effect.” – Alina Roytberg, Fresh Co-Founder

Crafted with the same beloved Sugar Lip Treatment formula, Sugar Fig Lip Treatment offers buildable, sheer to rich coverage with a deep purple hue, making it a must-have for fall.

One of the amazing items you can get this holiday while helping Kiehl’s campaign to Feed America is the amazing Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter.

While this is a nice whipped body butter it still absorbs right away with no residue and leaves my skin hydrated and smelling amazing. Grab one for yourself or for someone special this holiday.
