Last week I discovered an innovative new nail polish concept, Nails Inc. Paint Can Spray On Nail Polish... yes, really! The concept is simple-- it's a spray on formula that applies evenly to nails, especially for those on-the-go who need a quick polish change. Pretty cool, right?

Short Shorts + Good HUES-Day Linkup

American Eagle Outfitters Shorts

Ugh, tomorrow I will wake up and be 31- yikes! I guess it's not so bad though-- to kick off my birthday week, we went down to Newport Beach for a craft beer festival this past weekend and I couldn't pass up the chance to head over to the harbor for brunch. It was gorgeous out, super blue sky, sun was shining.. and then the clouds came in. Good for pictures, not so good when you're wearing short shorts!

A Very Good Hair Day With ghd

Product was provided by ghd for review purposes, however all opinions are my own. 
ghd Platinum Styler

Let's be honest- I spend WAY more time on my makeup than on my hair each morning. If I'm actually going to style my hair-- as opposed to throwing it up in a quick bun or letting it air dry-- I tend to gravitate towards simple hair styles, basically ones I can style using a flat iron. Since I'm constantly using heat on my hair, I need an exceptional and quality styler that won't destroy my hair. Whether I'm creating boho, beachy waves or super straight strands, the  ghd Platinum™ Styler has become my go-to for getting these cute styles in no time, without frying my hair. Read on to get all the scoop on this must-have tool >>

How to: Beachy Waves

John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Visibly Brighter

A couple weeks ago I posted  about how excited I was to try the new John Frieda Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ In-Shower Treatment, which instantly lightens up to one shade for sun-kissed brunettes, along with the Visibly Brighter™ Subtle Lightening Shampoo,  Visibly Brighter™ Subtle Lightening Conditioner that I picked up at Walmart (FYI- if you can't find the products at your local Walmart, they are also available at Walmart.com). Not only was I super impressed with how the products have visibly boosted the brightness of my hair, I was able to brighten and lighten my hair color without the pricey salon visit. You can learn more about the line and each product in my last post here.

Below is a before/after showing how dull and blah my hair looked before using these products. After using the Visibly Brighter™ Treatment just once, my hair instantly looked lighter, brighter, shinier and all-around healthier. I followed the treatment with the Visibly Brighter™ Shampoo and Conditioner and have been using these two or three times a week when I wash my hair.
Before and After with John Frieda Visibly Brigher

To show off my gorgeous, brighter hair, I like to create soft, beachy waves which not only looks super pretty with sun-kissed hair, but the waves really help to show off the multi-dimensional color. This has become my go-to style, which is so fun for spring and summer- it's so easy, taking less than 15 minutes and it's all done with a flat iron. Really! Here's how to get these soft, beachy waves:

How to: Beachy Waves

Step 1: After using the Visibly Brighter™ Treatment, followed then by the Visibly Brighter™ Shampoo and Visibly Brighter™ Conditioner, let hair air-dry. My hair is more on the straight side and I find that it holds the curl better when air-dried as opposed to blow drying. Prior to styling, spritz with a heat protector spray to prevent damage.

Step 2: Clip or pin half hair up (or 1/3 if your hair is on the thicker side) to start on the bottom layer closest to the nape of your neck.

Step 3: Using a heated flat iron (I use a 1.25") clamp about 1" of hair in the iron and in a single motion twist away from your face and pull down through hair. It's important to do this in a single movement so you don't create funky dents in your hair. For a modern look, leave about 1" of the ends straight. Do the same with the next sections of hair, alternating between twisting away from face with twisting towards face.

Step 4: Let hair down from clip and continue curling, being sure to start the curl from the hairline and working down.

Step 5: Finish by running your hands through your hair to break up the strands and create loose waves. Add a spritz of hairspray, or my pick, sea salt spray, to ensure the style holds and you are good to go!
