Hair Care 101: Healthy Strands

Let’s face it ladies; we love our hair. Whether we’re flipping it, pushing it behind our ears or using it as a weapon in the dating game, it’s our best accessory. But ironically enough, we don’t always take the best care of our strands. Between dye jobs, infrequent cuts and countless dates with our flat irons, we are left with dry and damaged hair. So girls, I would like to introduce you to your new best friend: hair masks. Whether you’ve gone too long without a trip to the salon or decided to go blonde when God intended for you to be brunette, there is a mask out there for you.

And because I love playing with my luscious locks as much as the next girl, I have rounded up my top picks. Check them out below..

There’s nothing I love more than lathering on members of the red, blue and gray family. If you’re on the hunt for the perfect autumn shade, here are my top picks I recommend wearing all autumn long..

Behind the ‘Gram: @sweetmagchic

For those of you who may or may have not noticed, fashion bloggers have taken over Instagram. Try scrolling through the popular page and count how many fashion photos you see.. Lost count right? Hashtags like #ootd and #fashion are one of the most popular to use when wanting to gain exposure to an outfit photo. As I’ve mentioned before, I love the app. I think it creates such an amazing and creative community, one where everyday I am finding new bloggers to follow and admire. Because of this, I have decided to start featuring some of my favourite bloggers on Instagram.

First up is Marcy Jock Broussard of Sweet Magnolia Chic. Marcy’s blog, and insta, are unbeliavble. Not only is she gorgeous but she also has a killer sense of style! I have been following Marcy for a while and honestly, her blog and insta are so fun. When scrolling through her pictures or reading her posts, I feel I can hear her distinct voice- even though we have never met. To me, she is the perfect example of what a good writer/blogger is. I asked her a couple questions about her Instagram habits and she happily indulged in her favourite filter, plus how she feels about selfies!

And don’t forget to follow Marcy on Instagram @sweetmagchic..

Adorable & Affordable: Celebrity Designers

I don’t know about you, but I love it when celebrities try their hand at designing. It is the easiest and cheapest way to catch a glimpse into their closet and personal style. While many celebs have entered the fashion game, there are truly only a handful of celebrity designers that have the ability to make a lasting and successful brand. I absolutely love Rachel Zoe’s line for Shopbop, but the price tag? Not so much. But after conducting some in field research (aka mall trolling), I have found a few celebrity lines that are adorable and affordable- a win-win in my books!

So, here a few of the celeb brands I love to shop..
