Hair Tutorial: How I Get My Loose Curls

IT’S FINALLY HERE! My everyday hair tutorial has been the most requested post topic (by a landslide) for the last few years. I’m working on finding a videographer to film and edit a video version for you, but I recently snapped a bunch of photos for an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide in the mean time! Product and tool recommendations, too. Let’s get started…

I keep it pretty simple, honestly! When I first get out of the shower, I drench my strands with Unite 7 Seconds Leave-In Conditioner and comb it through with a plastic wide tooth comb. Then, I apply my styling cream of choice before blowing it out! Lately, I’ve been loving R + Co Park Avenue Blowout Balm and Jackpot Styling Creme. Most days, I try to let my hair air dry as much as possible to minimize heat damage.

Friday Finds || Week 2

This week was kind of a struggle for me! I kicked off the year on such a strong note last week, but I just felt off this week.

Groundbreaking, I know. We wanted to implement this series because there are six years of content within the blog and it’s not always necessary to re-invent the wheel, you know? A lot of times when I stumble upon old outfits, I feel inspired to wear the outfit again or re-create it with pieces I’m currently loving in my closet. I hope these Ten Outfits help you to do the same!

Weekend Reading >> Friday Finds

Over the last few years, I’ve sometimes (and sometimes not) shared some of my favorite things from around the web in a post called “Weekend Reading.” It’s not always things to read, though, and I hate how inconsistent I’ve been with it! Sometimes it’s posted on Fridays, sometimes Sundays, and it’s just kind of haphazard, you know? I’ve now officially got “Friday Finds” on my editorial calendar for the first few months of 2017, so let’s see where it goes. The content won’t change that much, just some of my favorite reads, pictures, products, and things to know from the last week!
