TRESemme Thermal Creations: how to get Oscars red carpet ready like Reese Witherspoon

 Hello Gorgeous!
Are you getting ready to recreate at home some of the looks seen on the 2013 Oscars red carpet?
I am-especially vintage waves oh so Veronica Lake look seen on Reese Witherspoon with TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer spray, Volume boosting mousse and 24 Hour Body with collagen finishing spray. All of these products can be found at mass retailers everywhere!

Now while I pull together a Reese Witherspoon Oscars red carpet how to video for YouTube. Enjoy this tutorial on how to get a NYFW look!

TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu led the team backstage at the Tracy Reese Fall 2013 Fashion Show.  To complement the designer’s collection Jeanie Syfu created a deep-side swept style which was teased and textured using TRESemmé products to mimic the fearless style of the clothing.  I've included additional information to recreate the look below and attached images for your reference.

Tracy Reese Fall 2013 Collection: The collection combines a variety of rich textures and patterns for an assortment of sexy silhouettes with an emphasis on hourglass dresses, longer slim skirts, sweater tunics and bold, meaty jackets and coats.  Black in all of its magnificence, from deep velvety darkness to textured patent refraction, anchors a palette highlighted by scarlet, cerise, teal, aubergine, tan and lychee.  
Overall Look: A quintessential NY look, the hair combines side-swept texture, polished ends and height at the crown.  A clash of black bobby pins arranged at the temple completed the look and complemented the black accents throughout the collection

Inspiration: A fearless New York girl walking home before dawn after a night out

How-To Steps:
1.     Lightly dampen hair and liberally apply TRESemmé Thermal Creations Volumizing Mousse and Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray throughout the roots and lengths of the hair for texture and volume
2.     Flip head upside-down and rough dry with fingers (pulling at the root with fingers until the hair is 90% dry). Use a Mason Pearson brush and continue drying upside-down by lifting at the roots and smoothing the ends. TIP: Use your Mason Pearson brush to lift the roots but don't smooth the roots, as this will flatten the texture
3.     Flip hair over when dry and create a "front sweep" by lightly brushing hair from the front of the crown over to one side diagonally
4.     Secure the side-sweep in place by haphazardly pinning a clash of black bobby pins at the temple
5.     Tease the crown of the head for lift.  Finish with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray
6.     Apply NEW TRESemmé Fresh Start Color Care Dry Shampoo for texture and pull out pieces for a wispy/undone soft finish

  • TRESemmé Thermal Creations Volumizing Mousse: Specially formulated to work with heat appliances to boost volume without heaviness, it helps to hold and maintain styles, while preventing frizz.

  • TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray: Sets volume with controlled bounce for 24 hours. Never stiff, this humidity-resistant spray leaves hair manageable and shiny.
  • NEW TRESemmé Fresh Start Color Care Dry Shampoo: A new formulation perfect for all hair types, which prevents dull and limp locks. The formula helps eliminate odor and extend the life of your color, leaving hair refreshed, smooth and silky.
  • TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray: Guards against heat and friction to keep hair shiny and soft, it instantly transforms all hair textures by enhancing strands’ flexibility to reform and hold shape.

 World leading patented process

Utilizing iTi’s technology, nitrogen is removed from water and replaced with oxygen. The ultra high oxygen levels are stabilized and sustained, so they can be infused into Oxygen Pur Spa Water Systems and Skin Serums. When released in a spa shower or bath, or from a bottle, the water and/or serum transport the high levels of oxygen into the deeper layers of the dermis. The skin then remains highly oxygenated for over forty minutes following the experience or application. This allows the oxygen to be utilized by the underlying cells where it is needed most.

Oxygen Pur Spa Water System and Skin Serums are unprecedented. The supersaturated level of dissolved oxygen in the Spa Water Systems is in excess of ten times that found in tap water. In the case of the Serums, it is fifteen times higher.

NB Ceutical Tolerance Enzyme Peel
Bio-sound Enzymatic exfoliant for delicate skin.

Tolerance Enzyme Peel is an exceptionally effective and gentle peel that was developed based on pure cutting-edge cosmetic engineering with a blend of ingredients that emit ultra soft vibrations.

Tolerance Enzyme Peel gently pampers the skin with a non-aggressive (granule-free) micro-exfoliation of the most damaged layers of the skin, revealing an even, smooth, soft, and luminous appearance.

Ideal for all skin types, especially the most sensitive and delicate skins, Tolerance Enzyme Peel is formulated with prickly pear (opuntia ficus) and papaya (carica papaya) extracts that exfoliate and renew the skin from within by stimulating a natural exfoliating process as well as botanical extract of chamomile that soothes, decongests, and maintains the skin's natural pH balance and sugar extract from bio-fermented Zea Mays among other dermo-soothing and moisturizing ingredients that provide a porcelain complexion.

Tolerance Enzyme Peel is a safe and effective exfoliant that renews the skin and restores luminosity without causing any inflammation or redness.

  • Non-aggressive exfoliation (does not contain abrasive particles), does not irritate sensitive and/or intolerant skins that cannot withstand other types of exfoliants.
  • Completely eliminates impurities and dead skin cells that dull the skin.
  • Allows for exfoliation in the more delicate areas of the face (eye contour and lip area) as well as other areas of the body.
  • Accelerates the skin regenerating process rapidly and effectively.
  • Increases skin's receptivity to absorb subsequent treatments.
  • Ideal treatment to alternate with GLYCO EXTREME PEEL during the resting periods.
  • Does not cause photosensitivity, but we recommend using sunscreen during the treatment (an SPF 30 at a minimum).
  • Hypoallergenic, alcohol and paraben-free.

Apply a layer onto the area to be exfoliated, leave on a few seconds and then massage until its texture is modified. Remove excess with sponges moistened in warm water

Hormonal skin aging and how to fix it with Murad

Hello Gorgeous! I wanted to share a brief guest blog post of information from Dr. Murad on how hormonal imbalance can age your skin. It is a short and sweet piece of information so read and enjoy! Go to to get your skin regime in spring time shape!

Did you know?
Hormonal aging happens to every woman— it starts as early as the late 20s and continues through the remainder of a woman’s life. As a woman ages, estrogen production begins to decline. It is this lower estrogen level that affects skin's texture, tone, elasticity, hydration and clarity. Skin becomes fragile and thinner; there is an increase in facial hair, breakouts, and ultimately reduced water content in the cells, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles.
Can You Reduce Hormonal Aging?
There are three main things we can easily do to slow aging and lessen Hormonal Aging’s effects – applying the right topical products, eating the right foods and taking the right supplements, and taking care of ourselves emotionally. Dr. Murad refers to this three pronged approach as Inclusive Health.
  • Topical Care: To rejuvenate the skin and regain a youthful glow, use products with phytoestrogens (plant-based estrogens) and other plant-based ingredients, like Soy, Wild Yam and Clover Flower Extracts. Such powerful ingredients are proven to combat the visible effects of Hormonal Aging skin aging and will result in a notable difference almost immediately. Murad’s Age-Diffusing Serum is a clinically proven skin formula that helps improve elasticity, inhibit degeneration of collagen and deliver essential moisture to plump and reduce sagging, restoring skin’s youthful glow. Age-Diffusing Serum increases skin firmness up to 42% in 10 minutes.*
*Individual results will vary. Study results on file.

How it works:
    • AHAs and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 work together to reduce the appearance of medium to deep wrinkles
    • Phytoestrogens naturally improve elasticity and deliver essential moisture
    • Glycosaminoglycans strengthen skin’s barrier to protect from aging damage
  • Internal Care: “Eat Your Water,” is one of Dr. Murad’s most notable pieces of advice. One of the chief side-effects of Hormonal Aging is a decline in cellular water. As dried-out, aging cells lose their ability to renew themselves, their functionality slows down —similar to a used piece of equipment that doesn’t work like new. Start adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet which will help infuse your cells with water and build stronger cell membranes to lock in hydration and ward of disease.
  • Sense of Self/Emotional Care: Mood swings are a part of hormonal aging and every woman will experience one or all of the following: anxiety, irritability, depression, and indifference to a certain degree. Support groups, exercise classes, family bonding time or even the unconditional love from a pet can boost a person’s mental outlook. Encouraging wellness through aromatherapy, massage and involvement with others will help ease the transition through menopause. The skin is connected to your brain, our nervous system, our hormones, and our immune system so the mind-skin link reflects our health as well as disease.

Moms-has this school year flown by for you too? I can't believe we have a week of surfing and fishing coming up next month-I've got to get into my wet suit!

I did the 3 day detox program with Kaeng Raeng created by Lindsay Reinsmith ( you get this online or at Whole Foods) and it's 3 things in my experience: delicious tasting, bloat moving and refreshing!

The orange packet of Glai Roong is mango peach and pineapple and my favorite. So if you need to squeeze into a dress for the red carpet, get bikini ready for spring break or just move the holiday sludge out of your system-try some Kaeng Raeng!

As New Year's resolutions are in full swing and Valentine's Day celebrations behind, you  will want to recover from post V-Day splurging, returning to their healthy living regimen.

To get back to feeling our very best, high quality products such as Kaeng Raeng that promote healthy living are available at Whole Foods or online and can be delivered quickly straight to your front door - including vegan cleanses for jumpstarting healthier eating.

Products like Kaeng Raeng, a freeze dried, preservative free, gluten free cleanse was designed to provide fresh ingredients to consumers at a low cost - shipped and delivered in just 2 days.

Kaeng Raeng is one of several natural products now focused on the direct to consumer sales channel, which enables entrepreneurs (like the one who created Kaeng Raeng, Lindsay Reinsmith) to offer lower prices and thorough customer service over the pricey and formal protocols associated with mass distribution.

 In our growing age of Amazon Prime, streaming content, and at-home fitness, cleansing and weight loss diets are still largely a time consuming process, plagued by several trips to the grocery store. Kaeng Raeng provides the benefits of cleansing in the 21st century - all you have to do is add water!  You'll receive 3 packets per day (9 or 18 total) of the detox program you choose.

Lose Baby Weight Like A Celebrity

This is a health article

When it comes to Hollywood’s starlets, the cycle is always the same: The tabloids notify us of a bun in the oven, we start to see baby bumps on the red carpet, and after the unique (read: bizarre) name of the child is finally revealed, we see the same celeb emerge with a flat tummy and svelte figure. The turnover time between being 9 months pregnant and having an enviable post-baby body is so minimal that it’s downright hard to believe. What’s the secret behind rapidly dropping the baby weight? We got the dirt on the health and fitness regimens of our favorite celeb mommies. And while we can't afford a live-in trainer or personal chef, there are a few tactics that everyone can try.
