I never meant to leave you this long. A week turned into a month and here I am feeling like I’ve completely neglected all my beauties who I’m sure are thirsting for the latest Spring Beauty Trends. The past month has been a little bit of a whirlwind and all of my free time (I use “free” very loosely) has been tied up in something exciting and a little exhausting and I can’t wait to tell you all about it…. next month 😉 Continue reading “I miss you…”
If you have a breakout, or feel one coming on here’s how to stop that little Devil from ruining your day. After washing your face, take a q-tip and get it wet under the faucet, then add 2 drops of Tea Tree oil to the q-tip and dab your breakout. The best time for this treatment is before bed. When you wake the breakout will be gone or almost gone. If it’s still lingering, repeat a second night. I am not well versed in essential oils, this is just something I’ve used on my clients (and myself) for years. I won’t lie to you- the smell is VERY ….outdoorsy but it works! Bye breakouts!

I’ve been writing this post for over a year. I’ve been writing this post since before I was an actual blogger when it was just random sentences and thoughts and bits of information saved to a document. I’ve been writing this post waiting to share it with you, waiting for March. Waiting for you to read it, today. Continue reading “Spreading Awareness…”
You’re gonna LOOOVE me! Ok, this one is for shoes. I grew up in a house where shoes where shined daily (no really- I made a killing in spare change for shining Dad’s shoes with polish and brushes and I loved doing it!) so I can appreciate a well-kept pair of shoes. If you’re unlike my OCD dad, who had a trunk full of every color wax and special buffing tools, this tip is for you. For your patent leather heels and shoes, use a soft cloth and Windex to shine them right up! Your shoes will be the envy of mirrors everywhere.

When a girlfriend of mine who has the most gorgeous, super long, thick, and ridiculously healthy hair told me about a hair product she loved, I knew I had to shout it from the roof tops. Curly hair gals know the real struggle; the beautiful-natural- curls us strait haired girls lust over, often become frizzy and unruly. Enter this magic, great smelling curl defining serum. My girlfriend says “It’s so cheap, smells great and is honestly the best product I’ve found to smooth curls.” I’m telling you girls, she has tried it ALL and spares no expense to find the “best” for her curly hair, do yourself a favor and take her word for it, $7 well spent! . Here’s to happy, well-kept curly hair!

ps- To everyone who sends me emails, FB messages, tags me on IG and those of you who i’m lucky enough to call my friend and text or call me with beauty products or tips that you know I would love or “just have to share” with me- I love you. It means so much to me that you all think of me and I LOVE passing along all the beauty goodness!
Today’s quick tip comes from a girlfriend of mine who was modeling her jeans for me after I did her hair for a Country themed fundraiser. It was too good not to share. She says: If your jeans are too tight in just one area (waist, booty, legs) but fit everywhere else, do NOT size up. Instead, get the area that you need to be a *tiny* bit looser with warm water, then wear the jeans until they dry. They will be stretched in just the right place and fit perfectly! Nothing better than a great fitting pair of jeans. XxOo Spoiled Gal

Getting ready in the wrong light
It’s true, lighting can play a HUGE part of how your make up looks. How many times have you put on your make up only to get in the car and see that you need a complete do over? Here’s where things go wrong: Continue reading “THE BEAUTY IN…Fixing your common beauty mistakes”
I have a confession. I have absolutely no business writing about any sort of fitness. However, I was recently let in on a little secret that I have to share! I joke that I am “skinny fat” because, well, I am. I don’t make time to work out, I’m very Continue reading “Monday Quick Tip…”
I’ve been slacking a little on my Friday Favorites..but for good reason. I can’t bring myself to tell you to go try something that I don’t absolutely love, so I figured i’d take a break until I found something worthy. I found it, and you HAVE TO get it! The Macadamia Oil Flawless Cleansing Conditioner is over the top amazing. This product takes the place of shampoo, AND conditioner, cuts on blow dry time and is paraben/sulfate free. Here’s how it works- it comes out almost like a dense mousse, you apply to your wet scalp and massage through your hair. You can feel the foam cutting through the oil in your scalp. Treating your ends last you leave on for 5-10 mins and wash out. After you blow dry your hair will have so much volume and feel strong! There are other similar products out there, but this is by far the easiest to use. Happy Saturday…

Ok Spoiled Gals, let me tell you the quickest, cheapest and easiest way to change your hair. This doesn’t involve any scissors, chemicals, or new products. Switch your swoop. That’s right, literally parting your hair in a different place will give you just enough of a different look for someone to say “your hair looks great today!” but not think “what did she change?” It’s a subtle move that is low commitment and so simple. Most of my clients have a side they part their hair, maybe their hair naturally falls to that side, or has been trained to be parted on that particular side, I’m simply suggesting you part your hair on the opposite side or even in the center. The proof’s in the pudding, look at my friend Kim K… completely differently looks, all by switching her swoop!
