We spend our lives chasing the perfect way to keep our hair in top condition, and using oils like tea tree oil for hair care seems counter-intuitive. I know you’re probably thinking we should be trying to reduce oils so we can avoid greasy hair, right? Actually, there are a number of reasons why using oils in your hair care is a great idea. Below I’ll share why, and how best to put them to use.
Why should you be using oils like tea tree oil for hair care?
Hi friends! Ever since a friend DM’d me saying she thought a certain housewife whose name rhymes with “Smile” got a PDO thread lift, I’ve been FASCINATED by the procedure. Today I have a guest post in collaboration with aesthetics-dentistry.com all about a different kind of thread lift – Silhouette Soft. Enjoy! xo Lindsay
Thread lifts are the latest revolutionary development in non-invasive facial aesthetic treatments for the reduction of sagging facial skin.
Hi everyone! We have an amazing guest post today all about a procedure that I find incredibly intriguing – PDO Thread Lifting! I posted about a certain Real Housewife on my Instagram stories who swears up and down that she has never had a facelift. She says when could I have done a facelift- I have no downtime! A friend replied and said that’s probably because she did PDO Thread Lifting! I hope you enjoy!
From the bachelorette party to the dress, the venue to the catering, planning a wedding is enough to drive anyone mad. A bride-to-be must learn how to let go of some things, knowing she can only control so much. But there’s one domain where she has complete control and ought to take the reins sooner than later. Every bride wants to look her absolute best on her wedding day. The event itself takes a lot of planning, but your skin should be a priority. Be kind to yourself and invest in that picture-perfect skin you’ve always wanted.
Joana Teixeira was sweet enough to write another guest post for us today! For better or for worse, I actually highlight my hair at home (are you gasping? lol). I was inspired by hair legend Jessie James Decker and talked about it in my Jessie James Decker Ombre Blonde Highlights at Home. Highlights = bleach though, which = damage so I asked Joana to help us with the after care to mitigate that damage and here’s what she said (with my comments in italics):
Last year when I went home for the holidays I had so many friends and family members say “Wow you look GREAT!” Want to know my secret? I got Botox a week before going home for Christmas so it was in full effect! My forehead looked smooth, I looked more relaxed and youthful, and it looked really natural and not frozen.
I also had less issues with my makeup getting caked in my wrinkles (the worst). I loved the effects SO much, but then it lasted about 2 months for me and it by 3 months it was completely gone! I was so sad because that stuff is expensive.
Recently I’ve been hearing more about Dysport and some people have been saying it lasts longer than Botox. I was curious if that was true and John Stuart was nice enough to write up a guest post all about Botox vs. Dysport.
Hey everyone- We have another guest post by Joana Teixeira today- hair care tips for busy mornings! I totally need this because as I’ve stated before in my Instagram story, I literally spend like 45 minutes on makeup, 3 minutes on hair and 30 seconds on my outfit in the morning. TG Joana is coming through with the tips!! I love the leave-in conditioner tip, I’m so curious to try it!!
As much as we’d all love to sit around each morning drinking fresh coffee, eating avocado toast and endlessly styling our hair, most of the time that just isn’t possible. Mornings tend to be a rush of putting on our clothes and finding something for breakfast before heading out the door as soon as we can. While it may be difficult to ensure your hair looks alright in these circumstances, there are ways to guarantee yourself a good hair day despite the rush. Here’s a rundown of useful hair care tips to make sure your locks look their best even if you don’t have much time.
and she was nice enough to write up the following tutorial! Enjoy!!
Heading into the autumn months it can feel like all the possibilities of summer are slowly seeping away. Those long, sunlit evenings, days by the beach and summer holidays abroad… When we think about the dark, gloomy weather that is about to come our way it can all feel a little bit depressing.
But it really doesn’t need to! There are lots of ways to maintain the spirit of summer even in those dark, wintery months. Why not pay homage to the god of all things beachy and sunny by re-creating summer hairstyles this fall? Get yourself some sun kissed locks and a casual sea-salt look. To keep the essence of summer alive why not try out a beautiful beach waves style? This classic occurs naturally after you’ve been in the sea, but it’s also recreate-able from the comfort of your own living room even in the depths of Fall.
To help you get this look here’s my own handy guide. I’ve got everything covered whether you want to know how to curl short hair or long hair, whether to use curling tongs or just a simple overnight twist. Continue reading →
I was born and raised in Toronto. I lived there for a full 25 years. On the eve of my 25th birthday, I decided to pick up and relocate to our big neighbor below, the land of opportunity. 9 years later, I can honestly say that the city that I once knew is no more. My friends and family are scattered across the town and world. The city has grown in population and popularity (thanks to Drake and the like.) And so when someone recently asked me for some ideas of places to visit while they were visiting Toronto, I drew a complete blank. It was actually quite upsetting. I love Toronto. I miss Toronto. My fondest memories were experienced and lived there.
Nonetheless, I still took it upon me to inquire and discover the city I once called home and here is what I came up with:
