Inspired By: Halloween Pumpkin

pumpkin beauty products

Fall always brings out the “hey guys, try these ‘awesome’ pumpkin product” beauty stories and, to be honest, it can get kind of nauseating.  Just because it’s fall, doesn’t mean that EVERY pumpkin product in existence is the best thing EVER.  So, after years of testing out all products pumpkin, i bring to you my favorite four pumpkin-based products.  I promise you, these are all good and won’t make you want to throw out all your Halloween candy.

Philosophy Homemade Pumpkin Pie Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath

ARCONA Pumpkin Lotion 10%

Sexy Hair Pumpkin Whipped Souffle Styling Cream

Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Facial Scrub

The Monday Rundown

The Monday Rundown

1. Rosemary & Truffle Oil Popcorn: As you know, I love anything truffle-related, and it’s just kind of genius on popcorn, with a little rosemary.

2. Sexy Hair Soy Renewal: I hosted an event with Just Extensions and Sexy Hair a few weeks back, and was given this awesome product in the gift bag.  It’s a nourishing styling treatment, made with Moroccan Argan Oil, that addresses moisture, frizz, smoothness, elasticity and shine concerns. It also protects from environmental stresses and reduces drying time.

3. Sam Edelman Genna Strappy Sandals: Every summer, with out fail, I end up buying a new pair of Sam Edelman sandals.  They’re just so versatile and I’m LOVING this silver gladiator version.

4. Z Gallerie Diamand IKAT Pillow: I’m on the lookout for new decorative pillows for my couches…this might be a little too matchy matchy (my couches are bright blue), but I still love it.




Just Extensions Launch Event, Presented by Sexy Hair, and Hosted By Me!


My love for all things extensions only grows bigger and bigger by the day, which is why I was absolutely thrilled when I was asked to host the launch event for LA’s first hair extension bar: Just Extensions.  The event was presented by SexyHair, an awesome hair product line that has a great selection of products that are safe to use with hair extensions, which is totally key for maximum wear.  Sexy Hair’s Stylist, Laura Hickenboth, gave tips to all guests on how to maintain extensions and what products were best with each specific technique, which was incredibly informative.

Just Extensions, founded by Riqua Hailes, offers extension lovers an alternative to the long application hours and over-priced services typically associated with getting extensions.  Whether you are looking to add length, volume or color, the experienced “extensionists” and licensed stylists can help you achieve the exact look that you want.  Just Extensions also allows you to choose your preferred method of application, which I love, and their stylists can help guide you on the best application for you, based on your hair’s texture.
