Two Minute Hairstyles




It's no secret I like to take care of my hair and need easy simple hairstyles. I have round up some of my favorite two minute styles above. I have been using the Head & Shoulders Fresh Scent Technology collection which I love, and have been using it to get the above styles. It fights off my dandruff & makes me feel clean and fresh. Plus, it smells amazing.

Plus, Head & Shoulders is putting on the #PartOfOurFamily sweepstakes where you have a chance to meet Sofia Vergara. All you have to do is Follow @HeadShoulders on Twitter and post a photo of your gorgeous, flake free hair tagging #PartOfOurFamily #Sweeps and @HeadShoulders.

Sweepstakes will run until September 1 and the winner will have the opportunity to meet Sofia at an upcoming Head & Shoulders advertising shoot (Yay!)

Good luck!!

The Texturized (and Voluminous) Ponytail


You will need:
Garnier Fructis Texture Tease
Elastic Hair Tie



Step 1:

Separate one section of hair and spray with Garnier Texture Tease



Step 2:
Scrunch hair that has been sprayed to create more volume.
Repeat on the other side.

Loosely gather hair into a ponytail
Tug upwards at the hair right above base of the ponytail to create more volume.



Step 4:
Spray ponytail with Garnier Texture Tease for added volume and texture.
Scrunch for desired look.


Sometimes there's nothing better than a big voluminous ponytail. I'm a very simple gal and I like my hairstyles to be very easy which is why I absolutely love this look & seriously ADORE this Garnier Texture Tease! I am not really one to use a comb to tease since I'm always afraid of damaging it so this product is my savior! It's basically a backcomb in a bottle. All you have to do is spray it and scrunch up the hair a bit and voila, instant volume! Above is my easy way to get that big textured ponytail we all die to have!

Jacket: ASOS // Pants: Target // Shoes: Chinese Laundry // Bag: ASOS // Rings: Gorjana (Here & Here) // Sunglasses: Ray Ban


Who doesn't love a good pair jeans or leggings especially when they are a total steal?! I am obsessed with this pair from Target! I'm a huge fan of denim leggings (jeggings) and am always adding to my collection. I like how they are form fitting yet allow you to movie and not be uncomfortable. With Fall right around the corner I'm getting geared up and adding to my denim collection!

back to school style with american eagle outfitters

Top, Cardigan, Pants, Shoes, Bag, Rings, Necklace all American Eagle Outfitters

I'm really excited because today I have partnered up with American Eagle Outfitters to show you guys my back to school style! Last time I went to back to school was quite a while ago ::sigh:: but this is totally what I would have sported & tend to wear when fall starts to creep its head around. Denim jeans are always a must for school and the distressed look is really in right now. A long boyfriend cardigan is perfect to throw on top of a cute tank top for those air conditioned classrooms and such. For a bag, I always go for an oversized bag like this one that I could throw my notebooks and laptop in.

Summer Party Hacks

summer party ideas hacks


Labor Day is coming up and I'm rounding up some easy summer party hacks.

1. Watermelon is the quintessential summer fruit. Slice up watermelon into small pieces and stick toothpicks or larger wooden sticks in them so its easy for your guests to grab. With the remaining part, scoop out the rest of the inside of the watermelon so its empty. Use this as your party's "punch bowl." It adds something new and you can just toss it when you're done!

2. Make your own ring toss game. I like to use empty Smirnoff Ice bottles, place them in a crate and voila, you're ready for a fun game of ring toss! If you're feeling real festive, you can paint the bottles red and blue! It's the perfect game to get a little friendly competition going.

3. If you plan on serving dessert, pre-scoop the ice cream prior to your guests arriving and keep them in the freezer. That way you don't have to take time out from entertaining your guests and they are good to go!

4. Mason Jars are so perfect for summer party entertaining. They can have so many uses. You can use them to serve your guests their preferred drink in, you can use them as vases for some colorful flowers for your table setting and you can use them to store utensils for your guests.

5. If you're planning an outdoor pool or beach party, have the essentials ready to go for your guests. Roll up extra red & blue towels and have sunscreen, bug spray & more available for them to use.

6. When prepping your ice tray, add in fruit small fruit like berries prior to freezing. You're guests will be so impressed and you barely will have had to do anything extra!

Hope you guys enjoyed these hacks!
