3 Ways to TRESemme Your Stagecoach Festival Hairstyle

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Happy Monday to you!

Coachella music festival has finished for 2017 and now it's time to ramp up for California's biggest country festival in Indio at the Polo Field, Stagecoach!

It's got a line up of country music legends and stars! All the fun starts this weekend, April 28-30th.
Now this festival may require a country inspired hat, whether it's Minnie Pearl's wide brimmed bonnet or a classic crush straw cowboy hat like Toby Keith and maybe even the black cowboy hat like Tim McGraw.  Remember, during this sunny event, having a hat is a good thing!

I recently received some products from TRESemme, one of the best brands available in the drugstore market category of hair products to help get a festival hairstyle.  Stay tuned for the video coming out this Wednesday!  The picture is actually me on set at the Bellagio in Las Vegas for a client - they loved trying the products!

 Season Tips & Forecasted Hair Trends from TRESemmé Celebrity Stylist, Tyler Laswell: “Sleeping in loose braids or a loose bun will protect your gorgeous texture from the pillow, saving you tons of time every morning as you get ready for the day!”
“I have said it before and I will say it again, braids are the new beach wave and they are not going anywhere. The key to these braids are the soft, fluffy texture and the
size. I love to use TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo to refresh and fluff up the hair before I braid it.”   
“I would also expect to see some embellishments in the braids like feathers, leather wraps and hair
“There is a very 90's urban vibe that is going on in the industry at the moment and bandanas seem to
be one of the big accessories that I keep seeing. I expect to see a lot of bandanas being used as hair accessories like head bands keeping that perfectly undone festival texture back away from the face.  I
love to mist and scrunch in  TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Spray to keep that festival texture locked into place and on point.”
Top 3 TRESemme Products to Help You Look Your Fest Best:
TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo ($4.99): Infused with Vitamin B12 and Keratin, this dry shampoo will keep your locks looking fresh at the roots and ready to be
styled. One spritz  transforms oily, limp and lackluster hair into locks that
look and feel freshly washed, even when they most definitely aren’t.
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum
($4.99): Sometimes freshening up your style is as simple as bringing some shine back to those dry looking mid lengths and ends. This non-greasy formula contains Keratin and Marula Oil that transforms parched strands into silky smooth tresses- a necessity when spending hours under the hot desert sun. Not to mention, it smells amazing which is always a big plus when you haven't been able to wash your hair for a few days!
TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Spray in travel size! ($1.99): Use this extra hold hair spray to keep any look in place for up to 24 hours no matter how much dancing you do! The flexible control formula is water-free, giving hair grip and control sans stickiness and is humidity-resistant keeping flyaways smooth and frizz at bay. While strong enough to hold your style through wind and rain, hair is still touchably soft and full of natural movement. 

Enjoy yourself and have fun at Stagecoach Festival

Coachella After Care with Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Today, Coachella wraps up another year of music and art. Kendrick Lamar and Lorde are on today's line up.  I went to the first year that Coachella was created and have not been back yet. I really appreciate the free passes shared to attend, though I think the event is a bit much for my son to attend at this age. I'm thinking next year, the 13 year old will appreciate the event and perhaps we will go.

For those of you who are there now, I hope you have planned your after care for the post Coachella effect.
The highs of the event are so high! There is so much stimulation to all of your senses from the sound and sights, smells and tastes.  So here's a bit of help to get you acclimated to everyday life after you leave.

Hydrate inside and out!  Now is a good time to add an electrolyte drink to your next 48 hours.
For skin, try the new Palmer's Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask with raw coconut sugar. It's paraben, phthalate, mineral oil, sulfate, gluten and dye free. Nothing but hydrating goodness in this mask and a great way to quench the thirst of your parched skin!

After the mask, which you can also use on hands or anywhere that your body has dry skin - apply the Palmer's Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer. It's formulated with ethically and sustainable sourced ingredients.  The bottle says 24 hour moisture, though I would reapply as needed.

It's a super light weight formula but packs a punch of hydration to it!

For your hair and scalp, heal the desert sun damage with the Palmer's Coconut Oil - it is marked for a facial oil, though this can be applied anywhere on the body, scalp and hair included!

This Cocnut Oil is a blend of extra virgin coconut oil, tahitian monoi oil, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil, argan oil, grapeseed oil, maracuja oil, sunflower oil, apricot oil and sesame oil.  The smell is delicious and the oil is nourishing! Your dry braided tight hair with the glitter roots will drink this up!

Put a dropper full of oil in your palm, rub them together and then smooth over your hair and work from the ends to the scalp!  Let it sit for a as long as possible before washing out.

 This cleansing balm that is new from Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula reminds me so much of the Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm. It melts into your skin and gives a good deep clean but gently. This product thoroughly removed long wearing foundation and long wearing mascara. If that sounds like your Coachella weekend makeup, get some of this to help remove the desert dirt from your skin.

After all of the hydration of your skin, inside and out, you will feel refreshed and ready to reflect on the memories you made during Coachella.

You never know, I just may see you out there next year!

How to Charm with the Charm Vox Box by Influenster

Hi ya Gorgeous!
It's Palm Sunday! Oh the joy of this season! My family is busy packing for our annual Passover trip as well as planning some celebrations for Easter before we leave. Phew!

In the meantime and middle of all the fun activities and planning, I received the Influenster Charm Vox Box full of samples that are perfect for a Palm Sunday into Passover with a bit o' Easter celebration!

Below are some photos of the products I was sent as free samples for an honest review. I did make a video, and in trying out the new Chrome and editing software, it was eaten. Gone. All of it. I do not know what happened and I did not have a back up of the original video files - so when I loaded them all into the new editor - they vanished in a crash and nothing could be recovered and now there are no samples or time left to re do it! Arggh! But I digress...  So let's take a look at these goodies!

First up, there were two mini samples of the new scents from Vera Wang. I'm a fan of her fragrances to begin with and these two definitely do not dissappoint!

 This new collection of fragrances are to evoke the intimacy and emotion of Vera Wang and capture moments in time to be cherished and embraced.
 Sophisticated. Intimate. Romantic.  Oh, and I love anything gardenia scented, so this yellow card is my fave of the two. The rose and vanilla scent is nice, but again, gardenia!

 I met this brand, EVA NYC  at the first Generation Beauty event by Ipsy and I have been in love ever since! I'm definitely taking this with me to the Passover celebration in Texas because I know it will care for my hair through travel, too much coffee, too much wine and too many early mornings and late nights!  I have both the EVA NYC Therapy Session hair Mask and Clean It UP shampoo.  These can now be purchased in liter sizes from Costco stores nationwide.

I've been a long time fan of the fun, function and affordability of Wet  n Wild brand and this new 1 Step wonder Gel that is cruelty free and does not need a curing lamp to get a lasting manicure at home is perfect for my upcoming travel and your spring break and Coachella festival nails!

 It was such a sweet surprise to see PEEPS in my Charm Vox Box! I have been dodgin' these lil sugary goodies for decades now. These were a staple in my Easter basket growing up and I put them in my son's Easter basket too - it's funny- because in general I do not like sweet stuff or candy. Though this particular peep is a combination of two of my most favorite flavors, coconut and dark chocolate!  What's your #PEEPSONALITY ?  Find on Twitter and Instagram @peepsbrand

Motts pouches have been a staple for my cub since he was up and moving! Fast and easy snacks on the go when traveling that make very little mess!

Mott's portable applesauche pouches are the perfect, healthy snack for on the go lifestyle!  @Motts on Twitter and Instagram  #TryMottsPouches #startstrong

Tacos are a staple in my household and normally I season the meat myself - but this new packet of spice from McCommick Spices is organic and when I read the ingredients I could pronounce and spell each and every one! The flavor was amazing and something the whole family enjoyed. Just enough spice for the cub and me!  Find it at mass grocery stores nationwide.  #McCormickSpices 
Twitter and Instagram @McCormickSpice

Ok, now all I have to do is finish this packing and be ready for an amazing Passover week of fun and celebrations! What are you and your family doing to celebrate?

Influenster sent me the samples free for an honest review and posting on social media. All opinions are my own.
