Getting Model Hair – Effortless Textured Waves

Ok, so here is the product to get that je ne sais quoi cool factor for your hair. I love that model-off-duty bedhead look but can’t quite achieve it by air drying my hair alone. (So much for effortless, right?) Enter Show Beauty. They generously sent over two products to try out and let me tell you… they’re amazing! Besides having the most glamorous bottles to ever grace your counter, they smell beautifully of caramel, vanilla, soft white musk and coconut milk. It’s a subtle scent that’s lux and sophisticated.

I’ve tried regular beach sprays before which were great, but these take it up a notch. The combination of volume and texture did wonders for my hair. Since my hair is long and thick, I never put any kind of volumizing product in it. But when I air-dry for waves, it kind of falls flat and gets oddly weighed down with it’s natural thickness. The volume lotion gave it a little oomph, which is exactly what it needed. And the texture spray gives it a really cool matte bedhead look. It doesn’t take much time to apply the products (lotion when damp, spray when dry), so a tiny bit of effort goes a long way. Pretty effortless!

Summer Nail Stickers

Kara Endres, breakfast, palm leaf, elephant, chevron, color gradientI had the chance to test out these cute nail stickers from Zazzle. They were kind enough to send over four designs (one of which I designed) and the first one I just had to try were the breakfast stickers. I mean, it’s mini eggs, bacon and toast—how adorable! They have a custom option where you can upload your own design and have that printed, so I chose my palm leaf print. — Links to all the designs shown are below.

The Boho Nook // Decor Style

Pinterest is my favorite place to find inspiration for everything from style and decor to illustration ideas. I found this photo and instantly fell in love with the clean lines and minimal style. The pop of teal and bold stripes really got my attention. I decided to illustrate this outdoor living space, but to put a bohemian spin on it; as if it was the perfect little boho nook to spend the afternoon.

I found a few pieces to really bring this scene to life:
