Summer is the perfect time to incorporate florals into your wardrobe and my favorite way to do that is with hair flowers!

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I find the holidays extremely stressful! Traveling, family, and trying to find the perfect gift for everyone (without going broke) can all add pressure to what should be an otherwise merry time of year. I decided to make things a bit easier for myself this year by creating homemade body scrubs to give as gifts. This simple 4 ingredient scrub keeps your skin… Keep Reading

I wanted to call this the Creature from the Black Lagoon mask because it’s kind of what I felt like running around with this on my face!

My hair is naturally stick straight, which might sound great to everyone else, but not when all you want is curly hair for just ONE night and you’ve spent an hour curling it only for it all to fall flat 10 minutes later!
