2016 hair styles all have one thing in common: TEXTURE. Whether your hair is long or short, texture is where it’s at.  Most of the cuts you’re seeing have textured piecey layers, framing, or bangs. But even for the blunt lobs that are out there, tousled waves are keeping them with the trend.

There is also a big 70’s influence in hair right now which I’m loving. Middle parts and shaggy layers are very prominent.  I’ve been playing with a middle part again now that my hair has gotten longer, and I even did a little cutting on myself over the weekend! I’ll be sure to share my updated hair with you soon!

Which of these cuts is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below! I may even have the chance to make some of you over!

Happy Good Friday! I’m so grateful for this day! My family and I are going to a service being held at the  Blaisdell Arena by New Hope Oahu tonight. They will be having their Easter services there also and I’m pretty excited for all of it!

Jumping to this look I’m wearing, I’ve been looking forward to sharing this denim shirt dress with you! It’s such a comfortable and versatile piece for me. It feels very flattering on my body and I love that it can go with so many pairs of shoes. I decided to rock my new fringe heels with it here which gives a nice pop of color.

Before I sign off, I have to point out my fabulous Pisces nail polish that I bought from Julep earlier this month. Naturally I’ve had it on for most of the month. Photos do not do it justice of what it looks like in person. It has an iridescentness (I’m making up words here!) to it as the light hits it from different angles. It’s a beautiful color!

What are your plans for Easter Weekend? Let me know in the comments below!

March Beauty Faves : Sugar Shine

Happy Humpday! Get ready to be beautiful because I have a new collection of beauty faves sure to indulge your sweet tooth!

Matrix has been on a roll lately! Last month I shared their release of Oil Wonders Volume Rose, and this month they have released yet another winner to their Biolage line called Sugar Shine.  If winter has left your hair dull and lacking shine, this is the product line for you! I’ll briefly tell you about the products, so you can know what to expect.

Your path to locks with luster starts with the Sugar Shine Polishing Hair Scrub. On damp hair, divide your hair into sections and emulsify the sugar scrub through your mid-lengthes and ends until the sugar has dissolved. Think about a body scrub and how it removes all the dead skin cells to reveal fresh  new skin underneath. This polishing scrub is doing the same thing for your hair by removing all the impurities. Once the sugar has dissolved, rinse thoroughly.

Next you shampoo and condition your hair as you normally would using the Sugar Shine Shampoo and Sugar Shine Conditioner. When your hair is towel dried and ready for styling, get ready to bust out my new favorite secret weapon! Sugar Shine Illumination Mist can be sprayed through damp or dry hair to seal in shine and smooth fly-aways and has heat protection up to 450 degrees! This makes it the perfect mist to use prior to using a flat iron or curling iron.

This really is an amazing system that has completely blown my socks off. It’s like a little spa treatment for my hair every time I shower. And I must add, it smells heavenly. I don’t know what the official scent is supposed to be, but I’m pretty sure it smells exactly like a Lemon Lavender Yankee Candle. I may or may not have licked the scrub because I couldn’t help myself! I’m going to kindly advise you not do that! It’s much better on your head 😉

Never let anyone treat you like a yellow starburst. You are a pink starburst.

Fringe 2

image image image image image image imageHappy Monday loves! This week I have spring break on my mind because my girls start theirs in 2 days! Let the fun times begin!

Last week I talked about my fringe obsession with you guys, and shared a couple of my latest purchases. The crazy thing is, I did not tell my husband about my current addiction, but apparently he knows me better than I thought! When I arrived home from my shopping extravaganza, he had my birthday present from him waiting for me. He insisted that I open it at once, and much to my delight, I unwrapped these beauties. Did he do good or what?!

Me and my fringe are all ready for spring break! Do you have any plans for the break? Let me know in the comments below!

Fringe

image image image image-8 image image image imageimageI’m a sucker for fringe. Last week I was birthday shopping with my mom and I came across these heels that I’ve been swooning over. I didn’t have to think twice about purchasing them! Then I found these jeans the next day, which are now one of my favorite pairs of denim. They’re soooo comfortable! I’ll most likely be living in my new fringey finds for quite some time.

If you love my fringe, I’ve included the links below so you can get them before they’re gone 🙂

image image image image imageGood morning loves! I’m so excited to share this look with you today!

I had been on the hunt for the perfect black button-down shirt dress and was having trouble finding just the right one. Then while I was in Cali a couple weeks ago, I found this one at Nordstrom Rack. I snatched it right off the rack to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me (and to make sure no one else grabbed it first!)! The price tag was the cherry on top!

If you’re looking for the perfect black shirt dress, I promise you’ll love this one!
