The Perfect Wave

Monday, March 4, 2013 128 0

Coat: Rudsak (old, last seen here). Hat: ASOS (love this similar one with jewels). Top: Zara (similar). Jeans: H&M. Shoes: Nine West (Canadian link) (U.S. link). Handbag: Balenciaga. Sunglasses: ZeroUV. Lipstick: MAC “Media”.

 

I think I’ve done it…after more than 10 years of trying, I’ve finally figured out how to achieve the perfect “not-too-perfect, rolled-out-of-bed” wavy hair.  Now, this might sound like no big deal to those of you blessed with gorgeous tresses, but I’m not exaggerating when I say that I have the worst hair ever.  It’s thick, poufy, frizzy, dry, prone to split ends and has just enough wave that I need to straighten it everyday, but not enough wave for it to look presentable…arghh!  I’ve either straightened or curled my hair EVERY single time I’ve washed it for the last 15 years…yes, 15 years!

 

I’ve always used an inexpensive hair dryer, and I’ve been using the same brand of flat iron (to both straighten and curl my hair) for many, many years.  I honestly never thought that the brand or quality of the styling tools I used would make a noticeable difference in the appearance of my hair.  When the lovely people over at José Eber offered to send me a few of their products to try, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to test my theory.

 

They sent me 3 styling tools, the World’s Fastest Flat Iron, the Trio Clipless Curling Iron and the Infrared Blow Dryer.  I’ve been using all 3 products for the last couple of months and I can honestly say that they have made a huge difference in the appearance and healthiness of my hair.  I never realized the effect that high quality styling tools could have on my hair.  I’m almost at the point where I can blow dry my hair and I actually don’t have to straighten it before I leave the house!  That is shocking for me!

 

Tomorrow, I have an exciting little something for one of you lucky ladies.  The wonderful people at José Eber have offered to giveaway one of their styling tools, and the best part is you get to choose which item you want to win. . .either the World’s Fastest Flat Iron, the Trio Clipless Curling Iron or the Infrared Blow Dryer!  I will also be posting a little more detail about my experiences with each product, along with a few beginners tips that I’ve learned.  Be sure to check back in tomorrow for this great giveaway!

Tough Edge

Friday, May 11, 2012 14 0

JACKET: Rudsak. TOP: H&M. JEANS: Topshop Baxter Jeans. SHOES: Topshop. HANDBAG: Henri Bendel Clutch. SUNGLASSES: Chanel. NECKLACE: ASOS.

 

One of the very few things I’ll miss about winter is being able to wear this Rudsak leather coat.  My style is usually very girly, but this coat gives me a bit of an edge and makes me feel “cool” (if that’s even possible).  I love the mixed materials of the leather with the sweater trim.  This is definitely one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe.

 

Do you have any winter pieces you’ll miss wearing?
