Hope everyone had the happiest Thanksgiving! If you’re in a Turkey coma and looking online to find the best Black Friday deals to latch onto this weekend, I made it easy by bringing all the hot deals to you!
For all my international readers wondering what Black Friday means and why so many Americans go crazy over it here in the United States – it’s basically the day after Thanksgiving and the first day of traditional Christmas shopping. Tons of retailers offer major exclusive discounts in-store and online. Following Black Friday is Cyber Monday. This is the same concept except it features sales and discounts online only. The cool thing about Cyber Monday vs. Black Friday is you don’t have to wake up extra early and wait in those long lines. Instead you can enjoy the sales in your cozy PJ’s at home! (my kind of shopping)
Below I’ve shopped for you some of my favorites. Happy Shopping!

Remember that one time I temporarily colored my hair purple withGarnier Color Styler? It may have been a short-lived experience, but I had such a blast changing up my hair game. Today I decided to re-live the experience with some post-pics and tips, shall we? Have you tried Color Styler?!? If so, why haven’t you taken a selfie yet!? I’m sure you took plenty afterwards (I know I did) so read on to learn how you can be Garnier’s 72 hour spokesmodel! Woo Woo!
Here are some selfies I took in case you need a little hair-spiration for your upload!
So let’s rewind back to the day I decided to give this product a try. I was a bit hesitant (I mean it was only my first time!) but thankfully the process was really easy! After following the easy how-to guide, I was able to add purple to my hair in seconds. I love that it comes in 5 different shades. I admire seeing tons of girls trying all of the shades at once for a cotton-candy look.
I created this really easy how-to video below as many of you saw. Feel free check it out in case you missed it. <3
How You Enter: Grab some Color Styler & try out a new look. Instagram a super-fun selfie that shows off your personality and new hair (no brands or logos they ask). Tell Garnier why you’re totally awesome (duh!) in the caption and use the hashtag #FunnestGirl. You could be the next 72-hour spokesmodel. (Winner’s pic will be featured on their website and social media for 3 days)
“No Shave November” is an annual tradition where guys can basically get away with not shaving their beards for the entire month of November. They take a bunch of #BeardProgress selfies on their Instagram and get all the buzz (pun intended). Not shaving for a month?! Sounds like a dream come true if you ask me. This had me thinking though, what if ladies went an entire month without grooming themselves? *GASPS FOR AIR* Can you imagine walking into work with hairy legs and peach fuzz on your upper lip? Suddenly, all the attention is on you. If you’re a dark-haired girl like me, your boss might mistake you for a man. hahaha
Okay I’m a little dramatic but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t last a day. I know I’m not alone in this. I recently had a funny convo with some of my girls and we all agreed that men’s razors are better than women’s. Why is that!? Anyways, I thought it would be funny and kind of serious to share my take on No Shave November from a female stand point. Hope you enjoy the video and will share your comments.
Update: Okay so I’m getting tons of questions on social about how in the world I shave it without it growing back thicker? In the video, I mentioned I shave my mustache and my uni-brow. Correction! For my eyebrows, I do tweeze the fine middle hair out but I don’t tweeze out the hair in the brow. I’ll trim it with my brow razor. (full routine video here) However, I do use these thin razors to shave off the ‘stache! It works for me and the hair doesn’t come back thicker – that is such a myth! Always remember what works for some may not work for all. (P.S did you know shaving is an amazing skin exfoliator? hehe)
Today I’m showing you how you can heat up your winter style by adding super cute sunnies into your wardrobe mix. I am always blogging about the warm weather here in Los Angles and how much I wish it felt like winter! As many of you who visit my blog are probably experiencing extremely cold weather right now and thinking I’m crazy – I am here to help you fight off the winter blues! You guys have inspired me to whip up today’s outfit of the day to share my winter style. Thankfully I didn’t embarrass myself too much since the weather in LA has gotten chilly in the afternoons.
I think the key for maintaining your personal style during the dreary and cold winter months is to incorporate your favorite accessories and play up your eyewear game! It’s all you can do sometimes if you’re experiencing below zero weather conditions. I got these new shades from Coach and love how they look on my face. Instantly my outfit feels super stylish and chic.
Happy Friday! Today I’m putting my interview skills to the test as I spotlight YMI Jeans Founder and President, David Vered. I was especially excited to meet with David because he is not your typical company Founder. His passion for denim lead him to found YMI 14 years ago with a vision that has now turned what was once a small dream into a mega-successful denim manufacturing company.
As many of you know, I recently announced my blogger in residency with YMI last month and as a part of the learning experience, I have been granted the unique opportunity to go ‘behind the seams’ of a denim manufacturing company to learn how it operates. I had a few ‘fan-girl’ moments during this interview to myself thinking back to the year 2000 when I bought my first pair of YMI Jeans (I basically grew up on YMI!). Flash forward 14 years later, and now here I am sitting in the President’s office picking his brain about the company. Such a cool little moment.
I hope you guys will take the time to watch this interview! I had such a blast hanging out in Mr. Vered’s office and discussing the success of YMI with him! NOTE: Pay attention to what Mr.Vered has to say in the video – I may quiz you for a chance to win some really cool YMI gear.
