Product Review: Cutler's Specialist Cleansing Conditioner with Olive Oil

Ever wondered what it would be like to find an all-in-one product that actually does it all? Well with all of these companies coming out with cleansing conditioners, I had been curious of how they actually work. In my mind, unless I see a ton of suds, it isn't clean. I never like to prove myself wrong, but when I tried Cutler's Specialist Cleansing Conditioner with Olive Oil, I did! The idea behind the product is that you massage small amounts of the product all over your head in sections, and then let it sit in your hair for a few minutes. The more product you use and the longer you leave it in, the better the results!

Not only does it cleanse and condition your hair all in one (and must better than those drugstore brand's 2-in-1's that have been around forever, might I add), it leaves your hair smelling so fresh and clean, with just the perfect amount of bounce and shine. It replaces shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and de-tangler, the price of $22.00 is quite the steal! And might I add, it is so much easier to carry one bottle of hair product to the gym every morning, instead of 4...

Luckily, you can find this product at the online luxury haircare boutique Lock and Mane, along with a version made with Sea Kelp for normal to dry hair, and one with Tea Leaves for limp, lifeless hair!

Fashion Fridays: Lauren Conrad

Now I myself am not a fan of reality TV, but I would be lying if I said I didn't watch The Hills back in the day, and dream of having Lauren Conrad's wardrobe- so today, I am featuring a few of my favorite past outfits of hers!

Yoga and Lululemon



I have done yoga on and off for years, and have recently begun rotating it back into my fitness routine at Charm City Yoga. I have no problem admitting that about 60% of me enjoying anything, is purchasing the necessary gear. And we would all be fooling ourselves if we didn't recognize lululemon as the mothership of all things yoga! Although not easy on our wallet, the clothes are so comfy and cute, and not to mention super cool, that we just must splurge on a few pieces every now and then!

My favs are:



The Wunder Under Crop


The Define Jacket

Modern Racer Tank

Celebrity Trends: Springtime Covers!

I have been seeing some of the most gorgous magazine covers out there lately, and have thought that the hair and makeup has been just fantastic! The covers realy seem to highlight the biggest hair trends this season, and I wanted to share a few favorites with you. It is clear to see that soft curls and waves, both with and without bangs are definitely in!

Loose, rippled waves with tons of shine!



Zooey Deschanel on the cover of April 2011 Lucky
Long, soft waves with a blunt bang!














 

Emma Stone on the cover of May 2011 Glamour
Shorter, piecey waves with a soft side swept bang

Now what is destined to never, ever become a trend? Well luckily for you, I have that discovered that as well. And it must be said- I am very disappointed in you, Australian Vogue.

I don't know who you are, but I don't think I like you
(and yes, it is because of you hair)

One Lovely Blog Award!


One of my favorite daily reads, WhatMissLoves, surprised me last Friday by letting me know she gave me the One Lovely Blog Award, and I was thrilled! I really love awards, because they reassure me that people our there actually are reading, and that a few of them may actually like what they are reading! As part of this award, you're supposed to share 7 random facts about yourself and award 15 other bloggers! Here are my 7 random facts:

  1. I cannot sleep at night with the help of an OTC sleeping aid (I am sure at this point its a mental thing, but still, I can't!)
  2. I take like 12 vitamin a day (no clue what half of them are, my mother gives them to me...)
  3. I listen to soft yoga music every night while I fall asleep
  4. I have a nasty addiction to fashion, beauty and fitness blogs (I literally read like 70 of them)
  5. My favorite thing to snuggle down in is my Auburn Snuggie that my daddy gave me the Xmas
  6. I adore living alone, even though a lot of people say they get lonely- I like being able to do whatever I want, whenever I want to do it
  7. I am addicted to crime TV shows (Criminal Minds, NCIS, Law and Order - all of them, etc.)

Fashion Fridays- Seersucker Delight!

I have always loved the look of seersucker, and swear by the simple fact the real men wear seersucker (I will also assume that all women own at least one piece of seersucker, because in my mind thats the way it should be!). Luckily in Baltimore there are a ton of fantastic places to buy that perfect piece to add to your collection. Just to name a few are The Quinntessential Gentleman, Sassanova and the Preppy Plates to name a few.
Below are a few fab pics of seersucker and how it should be done! Because, you simply cannot get anymore classic that some delicious seersucker in the sun!

The Good 'Ol Days

I have gotten to thinking about my beloved college days, and how much I miss them. I have been terrible at keeping in touch as well as I should, and I hate that about myself. But I had so many great times while in school, and although I am glad that the academic part of it is over, I really miss the social outlet that college automatically provided. Chi Omega really helped me blossom in ways I never thought it would (I used to be a huge sorority skeptic, yikes!), and provided me with amazing friends and incredible memories. It has also helped me meet some wonderful women in Baltimore through our alumni network, who I never would have met otherwise! In the spirit of good memories, I wanted to share some with you in photo form :)
