Not only do Summer Friday’s start this week, I’m going to visit my amazzzziiiinnggg best friend Alexis in Minneapolis for Memorial Day Weekend. I can’t contain my excitement!

I Love My: Cricket Flat Iron

I’m more of a curling iron and curling wand kind of girl when it comes to my styling tools, but I finally feel like I’ve found a flat iron that straightens my hair and maintains that volume I like. I actually hadn’t heard of Cricket’s line of beauty and styling products prior to receiving their Hardware Pro Styling Iron ($65.70) and this definitely made me want to learn more. The Cricket styling iron goes up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and has…

Recap: My Jamaican Vacation!

I’m back! So sorry for the long hiatus, I was on a beautiful vacation in my home island of Jamaica.

Beachy Summer Waves with my Red by Kiss Curling Wand

About a month and a half ago, I cut my hair into a bob with bangs – which for now will be my transitional summer lewk. However, prior to the new ‘do I had been religiously using this curling wand that I bought one day on a whim. To be very honest, I was persuaded by this wavy look Khloe Kardashian was giving and had to figure out how to do it for myself. So after searching the net to…

Maintaining Moisture with Davines

Fortunately, for my friends and I who live in NYC, this winter hasn’t been nearly as excruciating as last year– minus the record breaking blizzard back in January. Nevertheless, maintaining smooth skin against the wind chill and under layers of clothing is pretty daunting. Personally, I’d prefer not to have to run into the bathroom and lotion up my ankles before getting cozy and taking off socks at my boyfriend’s house (not that he’s any less ashy, but you know what…
