Showing off the signature bangs of my childhood, circa 1983. Also, I really loved that dress.
Until I turned 18, I had bangs. Really and truly ... I had them for my entire childhood and young adult life. Now, this might not seem like such a big deal -- but because my hair is the way it is (curly, wavy and straight all at the same time, all while being thick and coarse), bangs were a CHALLENGE.
My latest obsession over the past year or so? Overnight face masks. I love slathering them on and waking up to clear, soft, radiant skin. And when it's the First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Overnight Mask? Well, that pretty much means I'm guaranteed to fall immediately, head over heels in love.
Okay, WOW. To be honest, I wasn't expecting to love the Zoya MatteVelvet Collection just as much as I do. I typically am not a fan of matte nail polishes, but this collection? STUNNING. I started playing around with all of the colors last night and was immediately blown away. It was honestly very difficult to settle on one color to use for my manicure today, but I finally went with Zoya Matte Velvet nail polish in Veruschka.
The summer after my freshman year of college, I worked at the Bath & Body Works in Cleveland's Golden Gate shopping plaza. I had long been a fan of the shower gels and lotions from this self-perceived beauty mecca -- I was that mallrat girl who went in every Saturday during junior high and high school and just HAD to buy something -- so it was a dream come true to actually be able to WORK there.
So here's the thing. I typically only wash my hair once a week. Okay, twice if it's really starting to bother me. But I can go a good four or five days before my hair gets oily or greasy, even at the roots -- so I don't really even use dry shampoo! If I want to try and extend my blowout at least one more day and I'm really feeling lazy, though? I reach for TRESemme Fresh Start Renewing Dry Shampoo.
