I spotted this gorgeous hair and lip combo on Joanna Goddard's blog and instantly decided this would be my look for the holiday party circuit this season. Since I've only got my face and hair to work with this season I thought this would class up the all black look I'll be sporting to hide my baby bump.

The instructions to this hair do can be found here and I am splurging on NARS' Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in "Cruella" (yes just like Cruella Deville!)

Let the holiday parties begin!

blow out

I love being pampered (hair done, nails done, face done whatever...) especially when I'm down and out, so a few weeks ago I indulged in a blow-out (the ultimate pick-me-up!)  I went in looking like an ugly stepsister and walked out feeling like Cinderella. My hair smelled amazing, was so voluminous and the best part is you get to skip washing your hair for days (mine lasted 4 days!).

When you go in they have a booklet of looks you can choose from, everything from the severe straight do to the "hollywood" (which is what I got). They wash your hair really well, give you a scalp massage and then blow it dry. They also use this great conditioning product called Moroccanoil.

With holiday party season just starting up check out their locations and make an appointment. You'll thank me later.
