Poll Results 1

A component of the new blog layout includes a poll!  I recently asked where do you shop for makeup? The majority of you said at the department store.  I would say Nordstrom is my favorite department store to shop for makeup, the sales associates are usually very friendly and knowledgable.  However, I really do love a good deal so you'll find me browsing the shelves of my local CVS quite frequently.  I love to coupon.  I prefer CVS because I usually have the best luck couponing there!  Actually the other day I used multiple coupons and received two Maybelline concealers (retail price $9.99 each) for about $5 for both!  My favorite brands at the drugstore are Revlon, L'oreal, and Maybelline.  Check the right column for the next poll now!

Part II: Current Hair Care Routine (No Heat)

Click here for Part I!

Part II:
Deep Conditioner:  Aka time for super smooth hair!  I like to deep my condition once or twice a week.  It really depends on if I have been using any heat on my hair.  I deep condition my hair with Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque ($25).  A little goes a long way!  I take a small scoop of the product and just work it into the ends of my hair.  I turn off the water and shave during the 8 minutes that I let the deep conditioner soak into my hair.  Once the 8 minutes is up, I rinse out the deep conditioner with cold water.

Leave in Treatment:  When I get out of the shower I like to gently towel dry my hair and then run a large toothed comb through my hair.   I squeeze about a dime to quarter size amount of Andalou's Smooth Hold Styling Cream ($9.95).  This product really helps me to achieve a smooth texture with my hair and fight frizz.  I then let my hair dry naturally!

Finishing Touches: Once my hair is dry I like to spritz a bit of Rene Furerer's Extreme Shine Gloss Spray ($23) on my hands and then apply it lightly to my hair.  It really keeps my hair shiny and in place.

Clarifying Shampoo:  Because I use a few products, product build up tends to accumulate on my scalp eventually so I like to shampoo my hair about twice a month with clarifying shampoo to get rid of this build up!  I use Suave's Daily Clarifying Shampoo ($1.49)  because it isn't as harsh as some other clarifying shampoos out there.

So that's my haircare routine for now!  It's pretty simple and not too expensive.  I'll keep you guys posted when I change it.  What hair care product can you not live without?

Searching for the 'It' Bag

I'm sure you are all familiar with Celine's Luggage Tote.  You've probably seen it on every celebrity. Previous 'It' bags have included the Alexander Wang Rocco, Mulberry's Alexa bag, and the Proenza Schouler PS1bag.  But don't you ever wonder what the next "It" bag could be?

When I first saw the Smythson 1887 bag, I knew that it had the potential to be an 'It' bag.  The bag was launched this year.  It was named '1887' to commemorate the founding year of Smythson, a British brand of luxury leather goods. 



The timeless bag features a clean shape and roomy interior.  It's no wonder it's been seen on celebrities including January Jones, Jessica Alba, and Poppy Delavigne!

Who knows if the 1887 will ever receive cult status a la Celine Luggage Tote, but I think it's a pretty fab bag!  What do you think will be the next 'It' bag?
