U by Kotex Ponytail Tutorial For Fine Hair

Tampons and hair elastics: two things that you will ALWAYS find in my purse, no matter what.  And, naturally, I like to add a little color to whatever I’m doing, which is why I’m a big fan of U by Kotex when it comes to picking a brand to use.  Sure, tampons aren’t exactly a sexy topic but it’s something that, as women, we can’t avoid and I have to tell you…I get a little happy when I see the bright U by Kotex colors.

Make sure to watch my video above to check out my go-to ponytail, which is especially awesome for girls who have fine hair.

AND, I have a present for you:

Get FREE Goody hair elastics when you buy U by Kotex at Target!  All you have to do is text “KOTEX” to TARGET (827438) on your phone and you’ll get your coupon!  Don’t forget, this is good at Target only.

Jelly Sandals/accessories: welcome to my childhood

jelly sandals for adults

To say that I was a child obsessed with jelly sandals would be too mild a statement to make.  I was beyond obsessed.  I wore them in the winter…with socks…in New York.  Yep (see photo below). Then there’s that.  So yeah, I have to be honest and admit that I kind of love that the whole jelly sandal/jelly accessory look is still chic.  Here are my favorites:

1. Nasty Gal Light Bright Bag: This bag reminds me of the purse that I had to use when I worked retail.  You know the one…it proved that we weren’t stealing anything from the store.  Somehow, I love the pink version more.

2. MARC by Marc Jacobs Jelly Dots iPhone 5 Case: Green is my favorite color, truth.  I’m really into this iPhone case for many reasons, which I will let you just assume.

3. Old Navy Jelly Sandals: A chic, yet affordable version, of the 80s staple.

4. Stuart Weissman “Jealous” Sandal: These are probably the closest to the 80s version that i’ve seen in awhile…and yeah, they are pricey, but I can’t tell you that I wouldn’t buy them, purely to re-live my youth.

5. Target Xhileration Clear Jelly Wristlet: The perfect beach essential. I’ll use this to hold my ID, credit card and cell phone when I’m at the beach and/or pool.

6. C. Wonder Logo Jelly Tote: This jelly tote just exudes summer to me.  I’m obsessed.
