TRESemme Dry Shampoo Review

Have any of you ever tried dry shampoo before? I LOVE it! I try not to wash my hair everyday to help preserve the color and health usually stripped by detergents in shampoo. Dry shampoo helps me get by with an extra day or two without washing it. If you’re new to dry shampoo, it is a wet powder that you spray into your roots that dries to soak up excess oil and makes your hair smell freshly washed. If you have thin hair, its great for adding a little texture.

One of my first reviews was for Salon Grafix Dry Shampoo. At the time, I thought it was the best thing ever, until TRESemmé sent me a bottle of their Fresh Start dry shampoo. I’m going to compare the two so that you can get an idea of what to look for in a dry shampoo.

  • Sprayer: My main problem with the Salon Graffix dry shampoo was the sprayer. I got a buy one, get one half off deal and the sprayer on both bottles was broken. Luckily I was able to return them for replacements, but even the sprayers on the new bottles were spitting at me. The TRESemmé sprayer offers a super-fine even mist of dry shampoo. Who wants clumps of thick powder on top of unwashed hair?
  • Color of Powder: The Salon Graffix dry shampoos come in a variety of colors such as brunette, black, and blonde. I loved this idea at first, but after a while, I found brown overspray on my floor and in my ears lol. Dry shampoo gives your hair a matte finish, so I never spray it on top of my hair. I always spray it in sections under my part and push it through the rest of my hair. Therefore, I prefer the clear/white of the TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo.
  • Availability: I couldn’t find the Salon Grafix dry shampoo anywhere in town, so I had to purchase it online. I have seen the TRESemmé in all drugstores, WalMart, and Target.

Missoni For Target Sold Out Ebay Fail

Missoni for Target – Was It An Epic Fail?

So I’ve read a few posts around the web from disappointed bloggers about the Missoni for Target #epicfail. The much awaited collection sold out in stores and online in a day, give or take a few scarves and socks, and according to some sources, Target has no plans to restock. If the fab fashion landed in the hands of true fans, then that’s fair – you snooze you lose; however, for the most part, it did not! True indeed some people were able to hit Target stores at 9:00 on a Tuesday morning and racked up, but it’s looking like the vast majority of the collection landed on Ebay within hours (30,000 items post launch and 42,869 as of a few minutes ago)!

Hollywood Fashion Secrets Review Contest

“Keep Your Clothes On!” – Summer Tote Giveaway

If Hollywood Fashion Secrets is good enough for Rachel Zoe’s red carpet starlets, I assumed it was “too-good” for an everyday fashionista such as myself. What the heck was I going to do with essentials usually kept in a “stylist to the stars” kit to prevent wardrobe malfunctions? Surprisingly, Hollywood Fashion Secrets sent me a goodie bag of their favorite “little secrets” and I immediately knew what I was going to do with each style solution.

A gapping sweater in need of closure inspired the product that started it all, Hollywood Fashion Tape. Now every clever, problem-solving product Hollywood Fashion Secrets has added to the assortment is designed to help women feel their most confident everywhere, anytime – at work, on the town, even at very special events like proms and weddings.

Missoni For Target – On Sale Now!

Have any of you shopped the Missoni for Target collection yet? My friend Ursula was beyond excited and sent me these pics this morning. She tweeted that she must have looked like a hoarder running through target. I’m pretty sure she was there right after dropping the kids off at school lol. Can you imagine what a tease it is to see what she picked up as I’m stuck at my office desk???

Ursula has a 4-year old daughter that I refer to as “my neice” and I can’t wait to see her in the skirt and poncho! That little girl has personality for days and will wear it well. Ursula is also an amazing interior decorator, so I love sneaking a peak at what she picked up from the home collection.

Make Your Own Flip Flops Havaianas


Who knew Havaianas had such a wide variety of flip flop sandals to choose from? I’ve loved their women’s sandals for years, in particular their graffiti-style beach flip flops, but they offer so much more!

Had I known 3 years ago that Havaianas carried bridal sandals, that would have made my search for the perfect beach wedding flip flop so much easier. They also expanded their collection to include university flip flops! These are a must have for fall and they’re adding new schools to their line-up often.

What I was most excited to discover about Havaianas is that you can make your own flip flops starting at $25! It’s such a fun and easy 4-step process! You start by selecting your sole and strap colors, and then finish the sandals off with up to 4 embellishments of your choice including crystals, initials, starfish and more. They even have a gallery of famous creations – flip flops designed by celebs for inspiration.

Designing your own sandals is the perfect way to color coordinate with your favorite team, sorority, or just to mix and match your own personal favorite colors. Check out the video below on making your own Havaianas. Is this something you’d try out? If you already have, let us know what you think about your custom kicks.
