I was sent the January 2017 POPSUGAR Must Have Box. Take a look…can you believe my good fortune? It’s hard to pick a favorite product, but this @glade candle smells soooo good…like the tropical vacation I wish I was on right now. Want a POPSUGAR Box too? Use the code SHOP5 to take $5 off your first box.
My 5-year-old’s name is Westley. I affectionately call him Wild West because he’s, well, wild—as most boys his age are. And like Westley, his mane has a mind of its own.
It’s thick and curly, grows at an enviable rate (we ladies should be so lucky) and Westley has this swirl pattern in front that creates one crazy cowlick. So when it comes to cutting his hair, the stylist needs to really know what she’s doing. This can’t be her first time at the proverbial rodeo.
For a while, I was taking him to my hair stylist. But as Westley got older, my husband, Graham, took over the task. On the one hand, I’m grateful to Graham for helping out—since most child grooming responsibilities land on my plate, by default. But on the other hand, Graham was taking him to a whole bunch of random barber shops/salons – so there wasn’t any consistency. Sometimes the cut/style would be good and sometimes it would be really bad (like once when he brought Westley home with a buzz cut).
So a few weeks ago when Hair Cuttery contacted me about writing a review (as part of their #MyHCLook campaign), I immediately thought of Westley. It was perfect timing too because his hair was at an awkward length and he desperately needed it cut for spring school pictures. Hair Cuttery provided a gift card to try their services—so Graham took Westley to the closest location and a talented stylist named Debbie gave him a great cut.
Though I didn’t accompany them to the appointment, Graham relayed to me what a great experience they had at Hair Cuttery. Debbie took her time, was very patient with Westley and I am really pleased with the end result. I would definitely take Westley back there again. (more…)
Want good hair every day? Then get ghd, which literally stands for ‘good hair day.’ I first discovered their Gold Professional 1″ styler in 2011 – and besides my beloved blow dryer, it is honestly the only styling tool I’ve used in the five years since.
In November, Sephora sent me ghd’s limited-edition Arctic Gold Professional Styling Gift Set, and I’m equally obsessed. It’s like the styling iron of my dreams, made real. I love that it heats up to the optimum styling temperature of 365 °F in less than 60 seconds, and beeps to let me know it’s time to do the do. And the contoured plates allow me to create straight, wavy and curved styles. It never snags as I run it over my tresses, and it imparts the most amazing shine.
Once upon a time, I needed this rug. But thanks to ghd and their handy automatic shut off feature, I don’t worry about my house burning down.
It also shuts off after 30 minutes of inactivity so you never have to worry that you’ve left it on and your house may be on fire. Perfect for traveling, the gift set also includes a heat-resistant roll bag with a protective plate guard – so go ahead and throw your hot-as-hell styling iron into your bag (or wherever) without fear that it’ll melt all of your stuff. Love that!
I will admit that at $225, this styling set costs a pretty penny. But if you use your iron on the regular, it’s definitely a worthwhile investment.
Cute hair + less damage – risk of burning your house down = what are you waiting for?
Noodle & Boo, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…
Noodle & Boo Newborn 2-in-1 Hair & Body Wash gently cleanses Arwen’s hair and skin without stripping its natural moisture. It’s tear-free, clinically-tested for sensitive/newborn skin, mild enough for daily use and suds up well despite being sulfate-free.
Noodle & Boo Baby Balm is a nourishing cream for face and body that soothes, pampers and provides long-lasting moisture for dry, irritated skin.
