Liven Up Your Hair This Spring

As a busy consultant, blogger and fiancée planning a wedding, life can be busy.  Add in one daily commute into the heart of Washington, D.C. and a love of yoga and I am left with little time for a lengthy beauty routine. Ultimately I have to make every minute count in my daily beauty ritual.

Head and Shoulders made my hair smooth and manageable.

Make no mistake… hair is a big part of my beauty ritual, for beautiful, healthy hair is important to me.  When my hair looks good, I feel good.  So even as I have been embracing the no-makeup makeup trend (which Marc Jacobs declared by the way as already over) there can be no debate to maintain fabulous hair every day. Since my hair is naturally wavy and frizzy, it’s important for me to have smooth locks to define my style and give me a polished appearance so I look put-together from a morning meeting to an after-hours get-together with friends.

Recently, I was invited to try Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky formula Shampoo and Conditioner and I can say I have been very pleased with the results on my hair.  The scent is light and refreshing and my favorite part is the special formula that contains a unique 24 hour frizz control that tames stray hairs.  So when I wake up at the crack of dawn, my hair is frizz-free and I save time to spend on other important things like a cup of coffee for breakfast.

Head and Shoulders made a noticeable difference in my hair.

Head and Shoulders is available at Target, my new favorite beauty stop, which is great because I eliminate a trip to a special beauty store and make a smart and savvy purchase on my budget. Now at Target if you buy 3 bottles of Head and Shoulders, in special limited edition bottles, you get a $5 Target gift card so everyone can make the switch to be frizz-free.(http://pubads.g.doubleclick.net/gampad/clk?id=151829163&iu=/5485/sugar.pop/track)

This offer ends May 16th so hurry over! So here’s to the start of a beautiful spring, with more time on our hands and gorgeous hair. “Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Head & Shoulders at Target through their partnership with POPSUGAR.

Pacifica Beauty Arrives at Target

I have been a big fan of Pacifica fragrances for a long time. Indian Coconut Nectar is my favorite scent and so I always carry the little fragrance tin in my purse for quick touch ups.  So recently shopping at Target I became pleasantly surprised to discover the Pacifica line in the beauty section.

The hunt for the perfect Mascara is always on my mind, so I had to purchase Pacifica Stellar Gaze in Black Supernova. It makes my lashes full and long and conditions them, and is Paraben free; all in all a good purchase. I have since noticed online there is a waterproof version of the Mascara called Aquarian Gaze that is available only online which I would like to try so Target if you are listening please put it in your stores.

 I couldn’t pass up the Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Butter.  Free from Paraben’s, Phthalate’s and Petroleum, the scent is divine and the colors are subtle.  Phthalate’s are a family of chemicals that have been used for decades to make plastic more pliable and cosmetics smoother in case you were wondering. I purchased the Light Pink and since the color is subtle I use it when I use little makeup on the weekends or am working around the house.

I also had to add the Indian Coconut Nectar “Take Me There” set to my shopping cart.  Well it is my favorite scent and the kit contains a roll-on perfume, full-sized Color Quench Lip Tint and a mini body butter.  All sizes are TSA friendly so they can go on all of my travels, and there is nothing better than refreshing yourself with a friendly scent after being on a long flight.

There is much more to the Pacifica line including: Mineral BB Cream, an Ultra CC Cream (with SPF 17), Mineral Lip Tints, Eye Shadow and more. 

And if you are wondering what is the difference between a BB, CC and DD Cream check out my past post to find out what formula is perfect for your skin.

 

 

Top five eyeshadow picks for Hazel eyes

Did you know Hazel eyes are one of the least understood eye colors and are semi-rare?  But never fear, for finding a perfect eyeshadow shade for Hazel eyes can be tricky but many options are available. s1550318-main-heroBecause Hazel eyes often appear to shift in color from brown to green the color is often hard to define, and since the unique color often reflects nearby colors, those of us with Hazel eyes can change the appearance of the color by the choice of makeup that we wear.  Shades to consider include: Browns, Gold, Pinks, Purples and Green, but remember to stay away from any blue shades which do not enhance Hazel eyes in anyway.

Estee Lauder Pure Color Instant Intense EyeShadow Trio in Gilded Chocolates is a nice set complete with a soft light pink champagne hue, soft gold and a medium copper shade that can go to the office and be used for going out for after work drink.

The look of Holly Golightly

The look of Holly Golightly

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is the beloved romantic movie featuring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard set in New York City.

Complicated, elegant and perfectly charming this movie has remained an enduring classic and now the stage adaptation of Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s heads to broadway. 

Opening on Broadway on March 20 in a limited engagement,  Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, has collaborated with long-time Target partners Sonia Kashuk and Umberto to create the signature Holly Golightly makeup and hair look for the show.

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke will be playing Holly and this adaptation shows a much darker character complete with a fresh makeup look that is iconic of beauty from the 1940’s.

The great hat

In the Broadway version, Holly sports a style suited to the 1940s—the actual time period in which this iconic novella is set.

This new Miss Golightly is styled with polished, porcelain skin, refined hair and a bold, bright lip. It’s a look that never goes out of style and is as timeless as the character herself.

You can achieve the same stunning look for yourself using Target’s exclusive beauty and hair care lines.
