Do you want to have a good hair day, every day? Well then you need to invest in the ghd AIR professional hair dryer. Usually, I don't put a lot of heat to my hair, but that's when I'm wearing it in its natural state. Right now, I've been really into curly and wavy styles for fall/winter, but I want this look without it being too frizzy. This is where the hairdryer comes in.
With these extensions in, I have no problem blow drying my hair to create the perfect look. The two concentrated nozzles and the AC motor allow the dryer to give my hair the look I want in less time than a normal dryer. My old dryer did not have nozzles, so I honestly have no idea how I lived without those all this time. The ionic technology lets my hair lock in moisture without frizzing! It took next to no time to get my hair from wet to dry, and it felt quite soft as well.
The ghd AIR has an ergonomic design for easy handling. The buttons--which include two speeds, three heat settings and a cool air shot--are located on the back of the hair dryer so it's easier for you to reach while blow drying your hair. It's a little pricey, clocking in at $225, but it's totally worth it over one that you can get for $30 at the drugstore. It will last longer (comes with a one year warranty) and will give you better results in less time. I spent a little time drying with the cool shot to create more fluff and body for my end results.
This is the big hair look that I was going for--on the left--or a bit more tame on the right. Next to this hair dryer, I just need a ceramic vented radial brush and I'll be all set. I think I'll give my old hair dryer to my Pomeranian. He loves a good cool shot. And I know...my dog now has his own hair dryer. Who am I?

Do you have this ghd AIR hairdryer--or another great hair product to share?

The hubs says this look is old school Hollywood meets church lady--but what does he know! I have a confession. I'm a bit hooked on quilted material. I recently realized that I have a pair of quilted pants, a quilted jacket, and I just added these quilted sneakers to the mix. Do you think I need an intervention? Me neither--these shoes are way too hot. And they made it really easy to gallivant around town snapping photos with my Nokia Lumia 635. 

As part of the #StyledByLumia challenge, I'm sharing what goes on during a photo shoot for an outfit post for the Muse. It's usually spending time trying to figure out where to take pictures, and then finding a fun place to eat instead. This time around it was a shaved ice place in Japantown (cherry/lime with condensed milk filling). Per usual, in between photos for the blog, I take photos for Instagram, so the Nokia Lumia came in quite handy for a quick shot of my sweet treat. And afterward I can store the images in Lumia Storyteller and put together something like a mobile scrapbook. Keep up with me and my Lumia challenge by following me on social!

By the way, how cute is the cross collar on this shirt? I wanted to title this post Masterchef because of it, but then I thought the shirt seemed more like a painter's smock--but then that seemed wrong too. What the hell does this cross collar remind me of? Thoughts? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Just like most everyone, I go to work Monday through Friday and get up quite early to do so. Even though I would consider myself to be a morning person, it's not easy saying bye to my comfy sheets when it's still dark outside. But one great way to feel wide awake is with my morning routine.

I don't always get to bed early (thanks to Sons of Anarchy Tuesdays and Scandal Thursdays), so it can be difficult getting a full eight hours. So when eight hours just isn't possible, Olay Fresh Effects gives me the look of beauty sleep in an instant. The Olay Fresh Effects {Out Of This Swirled!} Deep Pore Clean + Exfoliating Scrub has been a part of my morning routine for a couple weeks now. The infusion of honeysuckle and white tea is like a detox recipe for your face to keep it looking refreshed all day.

The cleanser targets dirt and impurities while the scrub uses microbead ribbons to reduce the appearance of pores. All you have to do is rub it into a foamy lather and clean in circular motions (I use my Clarisonic). The main ingredient is water, which is a big deal to me, plus it's also oil free. And did I mention that it smells totally delicious? I need a perfume, candle and drink in honeysuckle white tea, stat!

The Olay Fresh Effects products are priced anywhere from $4.99 to $12.99, and you can get the {Out Of This Swirled!} Deep Pore Clean + Exfoliating Scrub for only $6.99! It also comes in a green apple and Jasmine tea version. And if you loved the Olay Fresh Effects Dew Over Hydrating Gel Moisturizer that I reviewed back in May, then you'll absolutely love this skin care product for your morning routine, school, work and everywhere else.
