Pura d'or Hair and Bodycare Review

<img style="display:none;" src=""/>

Hi guys!!!! I'm so excited to share with you Pura d'or Hair and Bodycare products. My package came in the mail with a bottle of Premium Organic Argon Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo, a Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Conditioner in Lavender Vanilla, and a Pure and Organic Argan Oil and I can't wait to share my results.

The Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo is one of a kind. It contains 12 DHT Blockers, which creates thicker hair and prevents from further hair loss.  The Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Conditioner adds texture, shine and volume to hair. These shampoos and conditioners are free from SLS, Parabens and Gluten! The Pure and Organic Argan is great for skin! It's 100% cold pressed. It helps create smoother skin, restores nutrients to cells and reduces scars. These products are safe for daily use for all hair types, both men and women.

I couldn't wait to try out my new products. I first used the Argan shampoo. I was a little hesitant because I don't really have a hair loss problem. But I was pleasantly surprised at how great it smelled and the consistency of the lather on my fine hair. I then followed this with the Argan conditioner. I loved the smell of the lavender vanilla. When I rinsed and styled my hair, I couldn't believe how shiny my hair looked. As you can see in the pictures above, my hair looks so healthy and these products made my typically fine looking hair look and feel thicker. I was very impressed with my results.

I then used the Argan oil after the shower on my dry skin. It went on smooth and did not leave that greasy feeling after I apply other lotions and oils. My skin felt so soft. It is the perfect product for after shower or bath to keep my skin moist and soft.

I highly recommend that you try out these Pura d'or products. They are made with only all natural ingredients, no harsh chemicals, are animal cruelty free, USDA biobased certified and Dr. Trusted. 

Pura d'or offers free shipping to anywhere in the continental U.S and  are #1 on Amazon for Shampoos and Conditioners. I know that you will fall head over heels with Pura d'or!

Oscars 2015

Hi guys!!!! Did you watch the Oscars last Sunday night? It has been a tradition that I have hosted an Oscar viewing party for some of my favorite girlfriends at my house for over ten years. With the help of my amazing girlfriends, Rita Miles of Detailed Designs by Rita (follow@ritabmiles), and Laurel Weissman of Licious by Laurel, we took it up a notch this year. They, along with help of many of my girlfriends made this party an event to remember.

The theme this year was to wear something sparkly, and my girlfriends looked amazing. Rita went all out on the most unbelievable decor (with the help of Lisa Kay Designs). There were vintage movie reels, gold and black color theme, a red carpet entrance and photo wall, beautifully presented food (with the help of my friend Nikki) and Champagne galore. It was a classy environment for such an upscale evening. 

We also had an extraordinary desert table created by Laurel. She baked the most incredible desserts including her signature cupcakes, popcorn and candy bar. And once again, no detail was left un noticed. What a beautiful display. 

Rita then provided a swag bar where all the ladies filled bags with beauty and yummy goodies (including treats from Benefit, Moroccan Oil, and Maw 'N Paw Kettle Corn ). The ladies loved this special added touch.  

While we were watching the show, all the ladies took part in our annual Oscar contests. We filled out ballots on our predictions for best picture, actor, actress, etc. In addition, we voted on who of our guests had the best overall glam, best hair, jazziest jewels, sassiest shoes and most glamorous manicure. This year we were fortunate enough to have many donations of beautiful gifts for the winners of the contests. These donors included the following:

Rita Miles, (@ritabmiles) Stylist and Owner, Salon 359-- (949) 760-8359 
The Vault, Laguna Beach-- (949) 376-5000
Kim Putnam, Makeup Artist, Salon 359--(949) 760-8359

I can't thank you enough for all your donations. It meant so much to me!!!! We will be revealing the winners on my Instagram in the next few days. So stay tuned.

This was the best Oscar party ever! I had the a wonderful time with all of these lovely ladies!! I'm so grateful to have these beautiful women in my life. Thanks again to Rita and Laurel.

What Do I Do With My Hair

Denim Shirt--Gap
Topshop Skirt- similar--Nordstrom

Hi guys!!!!! I was getting ready to do errands last week at Fashion Island. I threw on my favorite Gap denim shirt, a great Topshop skirt and my Rag and Bone booties and was ready to go. My hair, however, was not cooperating. I get asked this question so often:  What can I do with my hair when I'm having a bad hair day.

I was reading Alexsis Mae, my girlfriend's amazing blog. She has great hair tips that are easy to follow. She suggested the two minute top knot. It's a version of the half bun, where you only put part of your hair up in a bun, and leave the rest down. Check out her blog and you tube channel. Alexsis gives great suggestions that solved my hair dilemma and it was so simple. It took me no time at all, I recommend that you try it too, especially on those days where you don't know what to do with your hair!!!!

David's Bridal

Hi guys!!!!! David's Bridal gave Cathy and I the most amazing opportunity --- to interview its Creative Director and VP of Design, Robert Barnowske. Since Spring is coming, I wanted to share with you Robert's tips on bridal attire, but also David's Bridal's collection of cocktail dresses, and outfit ideas for upcoming events.

Robert gave us insight on some current trends for brides. Since we live near the beach, Robert suggested a great pantsuit, or a dress with a shorter hem line (pictured above) is a great option for a beach wedding.  For a more a traditional wedding ceremony, Robert showed us some beautiful dresses from Vera Wang's line created exclusively for David's Bridal (pictured above).  A recent trend is for brides to wear a more traditional dress for the ceremony, and change into a second more hip and trendy outfit for the reception. Two dresses--I just love that idea. It's so different from when I got married almost 20 years ago. 

We also found out from Robert that David's Bridal does not carry only bridal attire, but is  where you may find the perfect dress to wear to a charity function or school fundraiser, or even prom or formal dresses for your daughters.  My girlfriends and I are always looking for different dresses to wear to these events so I loved learning that David's Bridal was an excellent option. Zac Posen does an exclusive line for David's Bridal that includes special occasion dresses, jewelry and shoes, with a reasonable price point.  Robert recommended to come in and try on different styles for your next event, and choose the best color and fit for your body type. 

It was such a pleasure to meet with Robert.  He was so gracious and I learned so much about bridal and special event dresses from his recommendations. So remember to check out David's Bridal for your next special event outfit.
