Back in February, I took a trip to Los Angeles to visit my old roommate and very dear friend, Todd. We spent a day at Disneyland, had burgers at In-N-Out, hung out by the pool ... you know, everything you're supposed to do in LA. And, of course, I simply had to visit a spa while I was in town. I took some time out to get a pedicure at Spa Nordstrom at South Coast Plaza.

I know it's the middle of summer, so I should be painting my nails with hot pink or vivid orange, but you know what? I'm a little bored with those shades. I felt that this week needed a little glitz and glamour ... hence this week's #ManiMonday with Maalouf Nail Polish in Silver.

I don't know about you, but sticky summer temperatures make me reach for a whole different set of beauty products. And, if I'm really being honest here? They make me reach for a whole lot LESS. There's nothing I hate more than hair on my neck and makeup on my face when it's over 80 degrees. (That pic above? It's me in all my summer glory, during my recent vacation to Martha's Vineyard.) These XXX products are the ones that are getting me through this summer in style.

Throwback Thursday: My Love of Crazy Headbands

Post a comment!

This wide red fabric headband was my everything in 7th grade. Especially teamed with those huge red and white earrings.
As a kid, I had what one might call a love affair (read: obsession) with headbands. As a small child of 7 or 8, I actually had a bunch of dresses that came with MATCHING headbands, which I thought were the coolest thing ever. But throughout my younger years, my love of headbands really knew no bounds. Take a walk down memory lane with me as I share some of my favorite headband moments.

I woke up very early this morning -- apparently I was done sleeping at 5:30 -- and figured there was no better time than the present to paint my nails! I've been wanting to try Essie Truth or Flare, one of the colors from the Spring 2014 Hide & Go Chic Collection, for quite some time, and today was the day!
