Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Last week, BellaSugar recommended this Fab Hairband Elastic Ball from Forever 21, for you gals who have major probs keeping track of your hair elastics. At $3.50, it’s definitely a cheap and chic way to stay organized. But here’s my tip (and it’s free)…

You know that mini hairbrush that lives in the bottom of your handbag? Wrap, like, 10 hair elastics around the handle; you’ll never be caught in a bad hair situation, without a way to reign in your mane.

You’re welcome.

zannclip ZannClip Giveaway!!!I am a giveaway fool.

Since When Can You Sleep Soundly In A Hair Clip?

Posted on by daneen in Hair Accessories, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

zannclip Since When Can You Sleep Soundly In A Hair Clip?If you asked me, a week ago, to name my favorite tried & true hair accessory, I would have said my trusty hair elastic. Old elasty and I go way back and we’re thick as thieves. 99% of the time, I’m pretty unimaginative when it comes to my hair; Monday through Friday, then again on Sunday, my hair is pulled back into a ponytail – and my hair elastic does a pretty decent job of keeping my uninspired style in place.

But I’ve changed my tune, since being introduced to the ZannClip – an ingenious accessory that functions as a ponytail holder, barrette and hair clip…and looks sophisticated and chic whilst doing so. And here’s the kicker: one night, I fell asleep wearing the ZannClip – and awoke from peaceful slumber to find it still perfectly in place. At night, I’m all Princess and the Pea – the slightest noise or discomfort keeps me awake into the wee hours. Yet the ZannClip didn’t affect my quality of sleep. Plus, when I took my hair down, it didn’t leave any crimps or dents in my hair! So I could quickly re-style my hair without fussing or fighting the texture. How many hair clips can make those claims?

The ZannClip is available in three sizes and 14 shades…but I say, go for the gold (24 karat, that is) or platiunum plated. Play the video below to watch the ZannClip in action, then try NOT to buy it.
