Review: More Frizz Protection with @nexxushair

I just used Nexxus Frizz Defy Leave-In Oil Shine Treatment for the third or fourth time and I really like it. It controls frizzy hair and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling. If you put too much and it feels greasy, use less! It’ll protect your hair against dryness and won’t make your hair feel heavy at all.

It makes my hair feel softer…and also leaves my hands feeling super soft. Like the review I did on Nexxus Frizz Defy Shampoo & Conditioner, this product contains Moroccan argan oil and coconut extract. Therefore, I love the smell of this like I do with the shampoo and conditioner! My hair is staticky sometimes so another thing I like about this product is that the oil definitely helps with the static.

So if your hair needs more ‘thirst’, rub some of this into your damp hair!

@Burberry loves Bloggers for @LondonFashionWk S/S 2013

I just finished watching the Burberry Spring Summer 2013 show live from my comforts of my living room in Brooklyn online! Getting to see the show the exact same time as buyers and editors like Anna Wintour makes it extra cool – so a BIG THANK YOU for the Burberry Social Media team for hook it it up!

The collection is SUPER DUPER. With bright foils in pinks, purples, blues, coppers and greens – there is everything to be excited about and nothing to hide.  It will take a lot of confidence and guts to wear this new collection but that is exactly what looking forward to spring/summer should feel like.  Burberry is the best brand out there that does a great job involving social media in fashion week and all that they are doing. Great Facebook, real time Twitter, quick Instagram and of course high level production!

Pay attention fashion brands. Here is a great example to follow!

Here are some of my favorite looks.

Trend Alert: Faux Bangs

Bangs change up the style, shape and attitude of a haircut, which is one reason celebs love them. An easy way to shake up your style on the cheap is to get the same look with faux bangs.

These aren’t the inexpensive hair pieces of yesterday; quality fake bangs come in any hue and texture to match your real hair. Celebs who’ve been showing off this trend include Leighton Meester, Sarah Jessica Parker and Selena Gomez.

One reason celebrities might opt for fake bangs is to have a certain style or look for a role, and bangs don’t come into play. Or they might transform their style for one night for an important event, as Katie Holmes did for the Oscars and Kim Kardashian did for New Year’s Eve. Plus, any girl who’s ever had bangs knows that growing them out can be so awkward! Hair should be fun and help a woman look good. If a clip-on product can do that, why not use it?

While fake bangs give A-list divas an excuse to have fun with their hair, these pieces work just as well for real women, too. Like other types of hairpieces, bang extensions come in human hair or synthetic materials. Only human hair extensions feel like the real deal and offer the same kind of movement and texture as your natural locks. You can even cut them to a desired length to suit your hairstyle.

If you want to go incognito in bang-land for a day, spend a bit more to get real human hair. Remy hair pieces in particular are free from any chemical processing (before being dyed by the manufacturer to achieve a certain color), are cut to the same length to minimize frizz and contain hair with intact cuticles.

Popping in the false bangs is super easy. Standing in front of a mirror, hold the bangs up to your head. Bangs look most natural when placed a couple inches back from your hairline, since that’s where your stylist would cut a set of real bangs. Part the hair and comb back the spot where you plan to attach the bangs so you can attach the clip. Work the clip into your locks, then close it so it’s secure. After installing, blend your hair around the bangs and style the hair so it looks natural.

To flirt with bangs without the commitment of cutting your mane, try clip-ons. Seek inspiration from celebs in styling your ‘do and wearing this trend with confidence.


Floating Cranberry Candles

Wash and dry jars and layer the bottom with the greenery of your choice, and then add a handful or two of cranberries. Pour water into the jar, causing the cranberries to float to the top. Insert a floating candle.

Another great DIY I found on Pinterest! What a cool idea – Definitely going to do it for Thanksgiving and dinner parties.
