I don’t know about you, but whenever there is a moment for me to find a moment of peace from running around to get everything done, I like to enjoy a slightly longer shower, take my time pampering my skin, and ultimately just take in the warmth of a cozy robe and the intoxicating scent of some great smelling body products (and flowers!).

December Plans // Holiday Style in Lace & Giveaway

holiday style

Happy first week of December! There is something about the holidays that either jolt me into an abundance of activity or make me retreat under my covers and just wish it would fly by. It’s this duality of emotion that has me moving slower than usual this season. Holidays can be stressful for some people, and when I think about how much there is to do, it can be overwhelming. However, I know that if I take the time to plan and prioritize what needs to get done, I’ll be far better off in the long run and less stressed.

One detail of your December planning that can be both fun and challenging is your holiday style for all the parties and events that takeover your weeknights and weekends into the new year. And while velvet is all the rage these days (I love it too!), I actually love a classic and colorful style in lace. I have collected quite a few lace dresses this past year, and it’s one of those textures in fashion that never goes out of style. And if  you love lace as much as I do, then be sure to check out the details of a great giveaway below to kick off our holiday joy this season!

And when I wear multiple colors in my outfits in row winter, I like to keep the coats and accessories pretty neutral. A camel coat is the perfect staple that every women should have in her closet!

Five Finds // 5 Ways to Care for Winter Hair

care for winter hair

Happy Sunday! This week is filled with so much emotion, and honestly I am happy to have a little break mid-week to just collect my thoughts about many things. You can get more on that through my Instagram and Snapchat. But right now I want to talk about hair! Since I was little, I often heard “you have such beautiful hair” or “you have so much thick hair”. However, for me it always seemed more of a stress to style and it always took so long to get it done at the hair salon! Since I have long curly hair but like the ease of having it blown out (especially in the winter), it’s important for me to keep it as healthy as possible.

care for winter hair

Every winter my hair reacts to the change to cold weather from scalp to root and it can take a toll on its texture. I almost never color my hair – highlights mainly – more than once a year, and yet it’s so important for me to do everything I can to care for my winter hair more than in the summer. Of course staying hydrated is paramount (and wearing a hat!), but here are a few goodies that I’ve started to use that I really enjoy and have been keeping my hair full of life!

care for winter hair

Before getting a blow out, using Kerastase’s L’incroyable Blowdry makes my hair significantly smoother and softer. I love the light scene it gives my hair and on occasion I even use a little bit a day or two after to refresh my hair.

I’ve never been one to use dry shampoo until I came across this product. Amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo not only smells great, but it instantly bring my roots to life after second day hair. And while it’s important to brush out the product after applying to the roots only, I love that it doesn’t leave any powered residue on my hair. I also love their travel gift set with flatiron, products and decorative pouch – a perfect for a holiday gift for a friend!

care for winter hair

Now I have used several hair conditioning masks through the years, and some have been better than others. Briogeo’s is definitely one I like better! It has a great scent, it doesn’t get sticky when you apply it and dries, and most importantly, it leaves my hair silky smooth. I like to apply it on my hair after washing with shampoo, then wrapping my hair in plastic wrap with a towel on top. On occasion, I add heat for a few minutes with my blow-dryer for added moisturizing. Using this once a week is perfect for the winter and in the summer after a day at the pool. I might also start to try their curly hair products.

care for winter hair

I have tried many of Aveda’s products and these are some standouts for sure! Because I blow-dry my hair quite a bit and the cold winter can be brutal to my ends, I’ve been using the Split End Repair before I retouch my hair with a flat iron or blowdryer. It softens the ends and also protects them from splitting. And one of my favorites is their Aircontrol light hair spray. I use it to add volume to my hair without feeling like I’ve added a ton of product. This allows me to have an extra day or two before I wash out my hair without product buildup!
