Turning heads with Joico Hair Care at a Pre Golden Globe Beauty Bar

Again, I will never turn down a blow out, especially from a brand like Joico.  The Golden Globes, and really ALL of the award shows, means that I will be getting pampered for pretty much the whole weekend…sorry, I don’t mean to brag, but you guys, I live for a good blow out.  Here’s the gossip:

  • Ashley Tisdale chatted with salon stylists about hot boys on Instagram 
  • Shenae Grimes admired her fiancé, played the Joico pinwheel and chatted about how she’s still obsessed with her engagement ring
  • Krysten Ritter looked poised and turned heads while getting her hair styled at Colgate’s Beauty bar with Joico’s Power Spray (which I LOVE)

Golden Globes: L’Oréal Paris’ Colour Riche Lipstick Turns 21 (and a giveaway!)

You know how I love me some awards season and, to kick it off, let’s start with The Golden Globes.  My first event of the weekend was a 21st birthday party, funny enough, for L’Oréal Paris’ Colour Riche Lipstick!  The iconic product is finally old enough to party with me and, to make it even more interesting, the party was hosted by two awesome people: L’Oréal Paris Makeup Artist Billy B. and actress Beth Behrs from one of my favorite shows, 2 Broke Girls.

Now, on to the good stuff: in honor of Colour Riche’s 21st, I’m giving away 21, yes, TWENTY ONE, lipsticks to 21 winners at random.  And, cause it gets better, I’m also giving away one of the CC Skye rose gold bracelets (pictured below) to one lucky winner at random!  All you have to do is follow me on Twitter and tweet me why you want a lipstick and/or the bracelet!  I’ll pick winners next Tuesday, January 22nd at 3pm PST.  Good luck and happy 21st birthday to Colour Riche! xo

THE Hospitality Suite at the Nivea For Men Mansion hosted by Pascal Mouawad


So living in LA, I do get to attend some pretty cool events…and THE Hospitality Suite at the Nivea For Men Mansion was no exception.  The party was held at famous jeweler Pascal Mouawad’s house in the Hills in honor of the Golden Globes…and seriously, there were some crazy star sightings.  Not like Brangelina or TomKat sightings (or even Speidi) but celebs who I didn’t even realize I actually liked.  Vince from Friday Night Lights, people!  I mean, come ON.  FNL is only my favorite show EVER.  Besides Vince (aka Michael B. Jordan), Jenny McCarthy, Milla Jovovich, Nicole Scherzinger, Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and and even Ali Fedotowsky from The Bachelor, my most hated show on television.

Besides the celeb spottings, the suite was pretty fab.  I got to catch up with George Papanikolas, who recently did my highlights, and get my hair blown out with the amazing JOICO line while chatting with friends.
