This & That

So last week I consulted Instagram about what to do for damaged hair and I got some great responses! I feel like my hair has been like straw ever since going back to blonde.  I went to Target over the weekend and got the following products: 



I've had a chance to use all of the products and here are my thoughts: the volumizing shampoo and silk conditioner is an AWESOME combo! I really like the leave-in product but you have to be careful to only use a small amount or your hair will feel greasy.  I also love the iron guard to spray on right before using the curling iron because while it does kind of feel like hairspray, you really don't need to use a hairspray after because I feel like it makes the curl stay in.

While I was in Las Vegas last week I got the most amazing perfume and candles.  

The perfume is Byredo Mojave Ghost and it's a spicy yet floral scent that is very striking.  


The candle is the Henri Bendel Blush Suede scent and it's one of the best candles that I've ever smelled!  I wish they'd made this candle scent into a perfume because it smells that good!

And how cute is their packaging? They had free shipping so I just went ahead and shipped the candles to my house.

Last week I started and finished True Detective in ONE day.  It was one of the best shows I've seen ... I'd highly recommend watching it if you're in need of a new show.  It's a dark crime drama series that airs on HBO.  Seriously, watch it.

Blake Lively is one smart cookie - she announced she was pregnant last week after not being seen or photographed for quite a while.  After her announcement she was out and about in the public eye several times wearing the cutest clothes.  Coincidentally, all of the clothes she was wearing are from her new clothing website, Preserve.  

I was immediately drawn to this cloak she wore until I saw the price tag - $1300.00.  Yikes. 


I really love her boots though- does anyone know who makes them?  I've done the standard internet stalking but can't seem to find the designer.  

And this short-sleeved jacket is super-cute too which she has in several colors ... 



It's still pretty pricey at nearly 600 dollars.  Way to go for trying to market the clothes you sell on your website, but get some cheaper stuff, girl! 

Maybe everything is just getting more expensive and I'm still stuck in 2008 thinking everything should be under 200 dollars.

J.Crew has really stepped up their sale game as of late.  I remember the days when it was a good thing to just get free shipping on their website, and now they're offering 25-30 percent off full-priced items nearly every other week! 

This week they're offering 25% off full-priced items (collection excluded) so jump on that if there's something you want on the website. 

This textured slouchy sweater is one of those items that is MUCH cuter in person.  I want it in every color! 


You can't go wrong with this oversized striped turtleneck ...

Shopbop Friends & Family 2014 Picks

One of my favorite websites, Shopbop, is having their Friends & Family starting today- everything is 25% off!  This is a great deal as Shopbop has almost every brand out there, so take advantage! 

I've wanted these boots all season and now is the perfect time to grab them! They would go with anything and the small heel makes them a great option for comfort as well.  


I haven't gotten anything Milly in a while, but I love this sweater dress.  I like how it's a marled knit and the pockets add a really cute and unique touch.  


If you missed the Tory Burch Friends & Family sale last week, you get a second chance at getting Tory Burch items at 25% off! 


I love the print on this Mara Hoffman dress and I also love that it is longer in the back so that it covers up your bum! 

Those are just a few of my picks for the sale, but make sure to hit up Shopbop to see if you want anything during a great promo opportunity! 

Camo Vest


Vest: J.Crew Factory |  Dress: Old J.Crew (similar) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Booties: Madewell | Bracelets: J.Crew, David Yurman | Earrings: J.Crew


I'm sure you all have seen this camo vest before ... it's a pretty popular item this year and last year too.  Since I'm obviously obsessed with layering, in particularly vests, I just had to get this one and another pattern the last time I was at J.Crew Factory
