For my second Throwback Thursday hairstyle with TRESemmé (remember the bouffant
look?) I picked my favorite photo of my Mom to recreate with a modern twist. I love her carefree boat blown waves, styled to wear under a giant hat, and wanted to mix it with my signature everyday side-braid. TRESemmé stylist Tyler Laswell showed me how to create this look by starting with beachy waves
, then brushing all my hair to one side. For a boat-chic touch, he suggested adding a D
utch braid (which is just an inverted French braid!). It’s the perfect windy weather look, keeping fly-aways at bay. Added bonus: the braid masks hat head, making it an all day look even if you decide to take your hat off – perfect for a day with the girls at brunch. Steps and supplies after the break. (more…)
Like I have said in the past, I somehow manage to kill every plant I come into contact with…something about watering? Always slips my mind. But succulents are the one plant I have been able to keep in my apartment (full disclosure: my current ones were a house warming gift from my Mom…who took care of the potting). So when the girls from The Sill offered to stop by and teach me how to make my own succulent garden, I could not pass up the chance to improve my black thumb. The mega bonus, if you don’t want to get your hands dirty, the The Sill will deliver potted plants anywhere in NYC and BK (way better then getting flowers, in my opinion) and they also sell some amazing planters and accessories online. So first get the steps after the break, then check out their amazing site!
A couple months back at Renegade Craft Fair, I stopped by the The Urban Smith’s booth and fell in love with the jewelry, and was stoked to find out that the designer, Molly, was just as cool as her pieces. The State Stamped Necklace, and Engraved Twitter ring were a must for me! After shopping and gabbing until closing time, we decided to set up a DIY date in her hometown during San Fran’s Renagade Fair. Fast forword to a couple weekends ago, out in Cali, I had the most lovely afternoon lunching with Molly, and got the expert tips and tricks on how to hand stamp like a pro!
Pro tip: Molly’s stamp of choice is this 36 piece TEKON set. The case keeps your letters/numbers organized for quicker stamping!
Pro tip: To get your letters to line up use tape! Details after the break…
