quick hair styling tutorial

After posting this photo on instagram, I promised I would share my hair styling routine with you.  Truth is, I'm normally very lazy with my hair and do this routine almost every time I blow dry my hair because it takes less than ten minutes total. Even though it's quick and simple, it still gives a volumized look - so it's perfect for me or any girl on the go. What makes this so easy is that I only use a paddle brush, rather than sectioning off hair and using a round brush. This video includes the products I use to prep my hair for styling, exactly how I blow dry, and how I finish off the look. Enjoy!

color craze

Another dress added to my closet that has versatility options galore. This little number by Trina Turk is something that can be dressed up with heels or dressed down with cute sandals and a denim jacket. I believe a dress is worth the splurge if it's versatile enough to be worn to church, work, and a fancy event. This dress fits that criteria, so I'm pretty much in love. It's also one of the most fun prints I've seen in a while. Double whammy!

This dress is from Mosaic, an upscale ladies clothing boutique in downtown Lake City, SC. They have an amazing assortment of lines like 10 Crosby Derek Lam, Trina Turk, by Malene Birger, Mara Hoffman, and Alice & Olivia - just to name a few. You can shop online and shipping is free within the US! 

P.S. My favorite photo from the Mosaic Spring Lookbook!
