I always get asked how I get my hair to look so natural, well here it is ladies! A step-by-step how to!
I use either the GHD curling iron or John Frieda Loose Curls, both 1 1/4 inch. Every time I wash my hair, which is like once a week I apply Bed Head Small Talk which helps with the frizz and also Bed Head Big Head which is a roof lifter. The blow dryer is also GHD. These are definitely the best products in the market.
Blow dry and tease the hair with a teasing comb. Take your fingers (not a brush) and brush through it and comb down the frizzies until it looks like the below photo.
Part the hair (I do 3-4 layers depending on how thick the hair is) and run the curling iron straight down the hair 2-3 times to unfrizz and straighten it a bit. Star the curl about halfway down the hair and curl away from your face. Leave about an inch to an inch and a half out at the bottom DO NOT CURL THE ENDS! Leave for about 20 seconds and then pull the curling iron down the hair to elongate the curl. Then go back over the curl 2 times with the curling iron (straighten not curl) to loosen the curl like below.
Continue this process through the rest of the layers. Make sure to leave that piece out at the end. That is what is going to make it look more natural and beachy.
The back: everyone always asks me how to get the back of the hair. I pull it up and curl down, and then pull to the side like the below photos.
Run your fingers through the hair again. I then use Living Proof Texturizing Mist and then spray it with whatever hair spray you use. I use Sebastian Shaper Plus. I constantly pull the ends of the hair through out the day.

This dress was 3 sizes too large for me, find out how I made it work without sewing!
Hey beauties! We are approaching the warmer months here in Florida but definitely still a bit chilly up there in the northeast huh?! So this one's for you!! This is a great transitional look from winter to spring! I am wearing the heck out of these boots this season into the next!
So anyway, this year the plans and focus for my blog are going to be promoting and educating fashion lovers on how to style their wardrobe and shop smart! I do not spend a lot of money on clothing, unless it's a staple or classic piece. I buy a lot yes, but, I do not buy full price, ever! Unless something is an absolute must-have I know I cannot get elsewhere. I want to help you think out of the box when you look at your wardrobe. I want you to be bold in your styling and not afraid to wear your personality on your sleeve, literally. Accessories are always your best friend. They can make an outfit.
That being said, let's peek at my vintage look here. This was a gorgeous dress given to me by Rebecca of Vintage Modage. It is a size or so too large for me but I really really love it. I eventually want to get it taken in but in the meantime, I thought cinching the waist with a skinny black belt and pairing it with some great accessories would really make this dress perfection. (Mostly everything in this look is linked- just click on the hyperlinks!)
I styled this taupe, satin dress with a floppy wool hat, an adorable suede bucket bag from Scout & Molly's in South Tampa and over-the-knee boots!
I topped it all off with some killer Quay Sunglasses from Scout & Molly's as well. If you're not in Tampa you can go right to the Quay site to grab them!
For a Pop! of color I threw on "Creeper" by Colour Pop. It's a gloss that goes on liquid but dries matte and lasts all day and the best part is it's ONLY $6! Linked above.
The idea behind this blog is to link you to affordable accessories and help you to understand that styling is what makes the outfit! I love this black suede bucket bag too. It just really pulls the whole outfit together.
