Short Hair Styling 101 VIDEO


PRODUCTS USED:

Dry Shampoo - I like to spray this onto my roots to add volume. This also helps hair look a bit more "clean" if it's been a few days since you have washed it. Remember 2nd or 3rd day hair always holds a curl way better!
Dry Wax Spray - This is the spray I like to use after curling my hair. It makes the hair look a bit more "piece-y" and I find holds the curl even better than hair spray! Make sure you only use a small amount!
Curling Iron - The exact curling iron I use is this one. It is the 1 1/4 iron! Love this size!

Spring Looks with Lyst


After initially being introduced to Lyst - a shopping site that helps you discover new designers, organize your favorite products and stay on top with the newest styles - I probably spent another 2 hours browsing the site and obsessing over everything!

If you haven't heard of Lyst, then I'm glad I'm the one to tell you all about it! Lyst is a site that basically just allows users to curate your own "lysts" and share them with your followers. You can follow your favorite brands, be the first to see the latest looks and discover more of the fashion you love. You also will be notified instantly when your favorite items (items on your "lysts") go on sale as well as stock alerts (Umm... pretty amazing, right?!). The site is SO easy to navigate, and there is an app available for your iPhone & iPad which means this app just got added to my before bedtime routine.

Seeing as how we are approaching Spring and I have been in love with the above Valentino pumps, I wanted to curate a look around them which took me less than 10 minutes using the Lyst interface. I knew I wanted a light pink dress and gold clutch (which I could narrow down by color) as well as statement earrings. It was as easy as that! I just added it to my Lyst & voila! To see my spring look just head here!

Since I was having so much fun (especially eyeing all the shoes I must say), I even curated my own Valentino Lyst below! You can check out the full lyst here!

Lyst is totally free to sign up and I can pretty much guarantee you won't be regretting your decision! 

Love, Olia

As you guys know, what I do for a living comes with countless of hours spent on the computer, my phone and tablet. That means lots of picture taking, photo editing, uploading, social media, browsing and the list goes on and on. Although I love using my laptop, sometimes I just want the convenience and simplicity of using of a tablet. Whether I'm traveling or running errands, I like to have something that I can slip into my bag that can serve me all the functions that my computer can do while on the go.

Recently I was in the market for a new tablet and knew I wanted something small and very convenient. The Intel powered Stream 7 is a 7" tablet and runs on Windows 8.1 and is SO cost effective. Really gives tablets a new name. The Stream 7 also comes with Office 365 built in which is a total plus for me because I do TONS of Office work on a daily basis and if anyone uses Office on the regular, you know it's a pretty pricey program to have on its own!

What I love about this tablet is it makes my blogging life so much easier. I can take photos, edit immediately and upload them straight to Facebook with one click. I can also log into my website, make edits as needed and move on with my day. I can even edit my outfit photos on this tablet, which is amazing. I find not many tablets allow me to do these kinds of photo edits.

Now for the thing I'm looking most forward to - When traveling I typically am lugging around my laptop AND tablet meaning my back is killing me by the end of the trip and seeing as how I'm headed on a Caribbean vacation next month I'm already thinking how amazing it's going to be to condense everything into just this one device! Yes- It will be used to work, edit and blog but when I want to tune out of work it will just as easily turn into pure entertainment in the form of movies and Netflix =) Pretty awesome, don't you think?!

I'm so happy Intel technology powers this product! Their ongoing innovative ideas for bumping up the quality of the technology they roll out to the market makes such a difference for me - not only in managing my business but in my everyday life as well!

Get Intel level performance that delivers lightening-fast web browsing and extraordinary battery life that keeps up with you and your busy life.

Plaid and Coral Pumps

Top: Aeropostale // Bottoms: Rag & Bone // Shoes: Sole Society // Necklace: Lilli & Tori // Sunglasses: Ray Ban // Bracelet: Derng

Guys -- I love a good plaid shirt. Whether worn buttoned up, tucked in or as I have today thrown over a white top and distressed denim -- it always looks awesome in my opinion. If you guys don't own a plaid button up yet, it's a total must! Especially since I feel it can be worn year round. In other news, I went to the awesome Meghan Trainor concert last night at the House of Blues in San Diego thanks to the amazing HP team. I got a little VIP access, met some new faces and enjoyed her beyond amazing show! Make sure to check out and follow my instagram feed @oliamajd to see photos I captured from the event last night including some goofy ones all dressed up -- you'll know which I'm talking about when you see! Love you guys!
