I’ve had long hair for the longest time. I like the fact that I can curl it, straighten it, do an up-do, and have fun with different hair styles, but my hair had finally gotten so long that I was starting to get tired of it and needed a change. In comes the trending LOB, aka the Long bob. I knew I wanted to go with this style, because I am not yet committed to cutting my hair totally short, but I also wanted some weight taken off.
So….tada, this is the style I ended up with. I asked my stylist how much he cut off, and he said about 10 inches!! My hair feels lighter, my bun sits perfectly on top of my head with out giving me a headache, and I’ve substantially used less shampoo and conditioner!
I’m still figuring out different ways to wear my hair, but I am enjoying it so far! In fact I wish I had gone a little shorter to begin with. When I look back at photos of my long hair, I do miss it, but for right now, I’m having fun playing with my new do. Besides, it’ll all grow back eventually right?! I hope so! Haha
People often compliment me on my complexion and how well my skin looks, but the truth is, it’s not always perfect, in fact it is far from it. I, like everyone else have my own struggles and issues when it comes to my skin. I may break out sometimes, and I can see sunspots where I wish I wouldn’t. While I do believe now I have overall good, healthy skin, it’s taken time, it’s taken research, and now I can share the secret with you….Rodan+Fields.
Developed by the two most highly respected Dr’s in the Dermatology world, and the creators of Proactiv, Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields developed a premier anti-aging skin care line made available to the everyday women. I mean who doesn’t want to keep their skin looking young, turn back time, and give it the non-surgical face-lift it needs. The best part is, that it works!
Skin care is never too early to start, and never too late to begin. Starting a regime and sticking to it, is key to seeing success, just as it is in any other aspects of our lives. Some may think it is vain to care so much about your image, or a waist of money to care for your skin in such capacity, but I don’t think so. I tell my styling clients that image is the first impression you make to others; it’s just a natural human instinct. So putting yourself forth in the best way possible not only makes a lasting impression, but can make your self esteem grow, get your confidence back and make you feel comfortable in your own skin.
There are an array of products that fit each skin type and tone. The Rodan + Fields brand has been featured in Oprah Magazine, Allure, New Beauty, Popsugar and Vogue. It’s provided amazing results for me personally, and for many others that I know. I have the upmost confidence in this brand and product that I have become an independent consultant myself. As a beauty blogger you know I’m always out on the hunt for the best products out there. If you are looking to give your skin a revamp, clear up any problem areas, or simply maintain it for a natural healthy looking complexion, this may be just what you need. There’s also a 60-day money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose!

Don’t let the winter weather dry up your gorgeous locks! With the help of L’Oreal’s everpure moisture shampoo and conditioner, my hair will keep it’s moisture, looking lush and shining throughout this winter season. I don’t know if you’ve every tried a sulfate free shampoo, but it does make a difference. For one, you can definitely feel a difference in texture. It leaves my hair less of that waxy feel that most shampoos do.
I recently colored my hair, and finding hair products that will be gentle and soft with my color treated hair has been a goal of mine. This line by L’Oreal is affordable, gets the job done, and leaves my hair smelling fresh and soft for days!
My most favorite part of the line is the 10 in 1 Elixir treatment. This leave in spray is easy to apply providing the ingredients needed to keep my just washed hair shining and soft. I’m a huge leave in spray/conditioner fan and this is one of my most favorite ones! For the price and results of the products, this is a must try!
