My New Hair Tools From Remington Wet2Style Pro

Thursday, December 10, 2020

The holidays are looking very different this year, there are no Christmas parties to attend, dinners to host or cocktails with friends. But even with the lack of face-to-face social interaction I still feel inspired to get fully ready most days. As you have probably noticed I typically keep my make up pretty simple and light and mostly play with my hair {and a few hair accessories!} to change my look.

Whether straightened out with a smooth blow out or curled in beachy waves, long loose hair is my preferred style. I was very excited when Wal Mart reached out for a collaboration with Remington’s new hair tools, the Pro Wet2Style collection. I had not used this brand before and was blown away by the results. 

Typically I let my hair air dry after my shower for a bit. After applying a heat protecting cream I then blow dry quickly while combining it with my hand. This is to ensure the low part of my head is dry before I bring in other hot tools. It is a bit time consuming but regular curling irons require it. Luckily the Wet2Style collection works with damp hair! Saves so much time. Remington's Wet2Style tools are made with ceramic and ionic technology to protect against damage and frizz. 

The blow dryer is the perfect size for the job. It is very light and powerful without getting too hot.

Presentation and packaging are huge for me, and that includes my hair tools. Loved the soft lavender color of this collection along with the clean modern look

This hot air curling iron is the tool I was the most excited about. I had seen the high-end version {that comes with a prohibiting price} and was very curious about the results. It curls the hair just like a regular hot tool but provides a smooth bouncy result that lasts all day.  It was surprisingly fast to do my entire head!

To curl my hair evenly I divide my head into three sections and star curling in layers {bottom, closest to my neck. Then middle section then the top of my head}. Once my head is fully done and the curls are cool to touch I give it a good shake so they loosen up and provide a soft beach wave look. 

Finish off with a glossing cream and cute hair accessories and I'm done.

Blow dryer comes with a range of great accessories. You can purchase the tools here, here and here

It's been ages since I last owned a flat iron but I really loved this one. The ceramic plates were very gentle to my hair. I was able to get soft smooth straight hair in no time. Make sure to always use heat protecting spray!

Thanks for reading, until next time!

Thank you Wal Mart for sponsoring this post. 

My Happy Fall Dress

Thursday, November 19, 2020

Dress // Shoes // Lipstick // Bag

Moody florals for fall is a trend that comes back every year; but I had never seen bright pink prints for autumn done so well. I'm obsessed with this casual dress!  It is technically listed as 'brown' on the website and it does have some of these earthy tones, but the pink hues it's what really stands out on this adorable piece. Fits true to size and it's very comfortable. The waist does sit a bit higher but it is not quite an empire style cut. I also purchased this top and seen here, can't help myself with all these gorgeous prints! Since Austin is still quite warm for November I paired it here with my Castaner flats, one of the most comfortable shoes I own. Do size up on this one as they run small. Finished my look with an old favorite, my Chloe Drew bag. I have owned this for years and love the soft rose color for every season. 

Hope your Thanksgiving prep is going well! We will be doing something super small to make sure we continue to socially distance and do our part during this pandemic. 

Talk to you soon!



Fall Floral Jumpsuit

Jumpsuit // Bag // Jacket {similar} // Shoes {similar}

It's been quite a while since I last did a style post on my blog. It was very difficult to try to find my mojo to work on content during this pandemic. Much like everyone else I felt confused, tired and a bit scared with everything happening around me. Styling outfits and going out for photoshoots was the last thing on my mind {and the fact we were mostly wearing lounge clothes around the house}. It's been 7+ months since we started our quarantine and it looks to me like the next few weeks and 2021 won't be much different, so I'm going to work with what I got and get back to my little blog because I love it so much and makes me happy to work on creative tasks. 

Here I am in this lovely and very comfortable Rebecca Taylor La Vie Larkspur jumpsuit. I purchased it a few months back and it's now on sale! Technically it's not part of their fall collection but the navy blue background and florals make it appropriate for the season {in Texas anyway, where fall is 90 degrees HA!}. Runs true to size but if you are on the taller side I would size up. I am a size 2 but I usually grab an S in Rebecca Taylor jumpsuits because I find the XS is not long enough for my torso. Paired with a denim jacket and flats it's the perfect outfit to run around town doing errands with my toddler. Since winters are very mild in Texas I'll probably be wearing it later with a baggy navy sweater on top and white sneakers. 

That's all I got for your today, talk to you soon!

Happy Birthday Eloise!

Thursday, August 20, 2020

Before I had my first baby I remember hearing people talk about how fast time passes and how quickly children grow up. Didn't click in my head until we started preparations for Eloise's first birthday. Where did time go? When did she get so big?.

We are very excited to see her grow into a VERY active toddler but it's also a bit heartbreaking to no longer have that newborn baby that would snuggle against my body all day. Makes no sense when I put it into words but I miss that tiny baby while I'm excited about the one-year old screaming next to me.

Our original preparations were for a much bigger party. Parents and siblings were planning on flying in, we were going to have a dessert bar and a big cake. But COVID changed our plans and we ended up with a small five person party and a DIY balloon arch. I sure wish we could have had the party we originally imagined but this tiny quarONEtine birthday was just as lovely.

Eloise loves pasta so we had it catered by North Italia. Had mimosas and cocktails for our friends and a delicious lemon lavender cake from Sugar Mama Bakery. Guests arrived around noon and we enjoyed charcuterie boards and mimosas while Eloise opened a couple gifts and played with her new toys.

The balloon arch for her cake table is a DIY! That's right! A few people messaged me on Instagram asking about the local vendor and I was sharing with them that I made it myself the night before, took me about two hours and it was $25.00 dollars! I did spend an extra $20 on an electric pump which I highly recommend since it makes the process much easier. You can buy the balloon arch kit here and the pump here.

We ate, danced, opened gifts and played with Eloise until she happily went to bed exhausted. I still cannot believe how big she is. A week before her birthday she started taking her firsts steps and now she is full on speed walking all over the house. Love this nugget of mine!

And here's the monthly shots I did for her, they got increasingly harder as she got older, but it was so much fun to see how much she physically changed from month to month. 

Thanks for reading me, hope you're staying safe and healthy. 
xx, Nicole
