For as long as I can remember, I've been obsessed with earrings -- the bigger, crazier and more attention grabbing, the better. In fact, I was coined the "Pin and Earring Queen" of the 7th grade because I was always wearing the most out-there pieces, like shoulder-length houndstooth danglers (I even spent one month of that year documenting and cataloguing my jewelry looks so I wouldn't repeat them). So when I discovered jewelry designer Jennifer Loiselle, whose signature statement pieces -- especially the ones crafted in perspex -- are colorful, bold and, most importantly, FUN, I fell in love immediately. I snapped up five pairs of her earrings -- yes, five -- during one shopping spree on ban.do and haven't looked back since. So I'm beyond thrilled to bring you my interview with the truly fabulous Jennifer Loiselle today! Read on to find out how she got her start as a jewelry designer, where she gets her inspiration and so much more.

If you're like me, you're extremely fascinated by the beauty products people use up on the regular. Seeing people's beauty empties is so interesting to me, because not only do I love seeing how many products they were able to use in a short amount of time, but I also love learning about new products and brands to add into my beauty routine! I will admit that I don't use up too many products super regularly, because although I have my tried and true standbys, I do tend to keep introducing new products into my regimen as well. But alas, I do finally have a new beauty empties post for you! Check out all the products I (finally) used up.

Post a comment!

The year was 2009. My hair hadn't been colored in almost 10 years. I happened upon hairstylist Jan-Marie Arteca, who was at that time working as a colorist at the Ted Gibson Salon. And, from the very first instant she laid her hands upon my hair, magic was made. We started small -- a highlight here, a lowlight there -- and then, as the years went on, started experimenting with blondes, reds and ombres. Jan-Marie is beyond skilled -- her color technique is masterful. She knows exactly how to make every color look like you were born with it, no matter how crazy or out there it may seem. I'm beyond thrilled to bring you my interview with Jan-Marie today. Read on to find out what led her to become a hairstylist, her tip to avoid hair breakage and so much more.
