Having smooth, frizz free is also something that I love to have. So, being able to have a hair product that can fight frizz and add hold to my hair is a summertime must have. One thing that I love most about summer is the laid back, care-free time that my family and I have at the Jersey Shore. What I need is a product that allows me to go from the beach to shopping without having to wash and restyle my hair in between. Since, I want my hair to look good at the beach and when I am out shopping, it is important that I choose a hair product that will control frizz, lock out the humidity from the beach and keep my hair in control. See which product I like to use for a frizz free hair by clicking on the link, deep conditioning hair treatment .

Thanks to my genes, I was born with "wimpy" hair. I have the kind of hair that requires much TLC. It needs something for moisture, volume, texture and strength (no wonder why my bathroom closet is busting at the hinges!). For this reason is why I love using the L'Oreal Everstrong System. The shampoo and conditioner are sulfate-free which is just what the "doctor"(hair dresser) ordered for colored hair like mine. I found that my hair was soft, manageable and I had less breakage after using the shampoo and conditioner. My ends were less brittle and my hair had more resilience especially when it came to brushing and blow drying my hair. I also enjoyed the creamy consistency of the shampoo and conditioner which have a wonderful "minty " aroma to them.Click on the link to learn more about how I fix damaged hair.

Finding the best sunscreen can be a difficult ask. You want one that protects your skin but without all the stickiness and greasiness. I have found one that I would consider to be a best sunscreen because it works great AND it won't cost you an arm and leg. After reading an Elle Magazine on-line interview with the lovely Brooklyn Decker, I decided to try out the sunscreen that she said she has used. Brooklyn said that during the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition photo-shoot she used the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock Body Mist SPF 45 "because it gives a glistening sheen that actually makes you look gorgeous and glowy" (according to Brooklyn) Well, if it is good enough to protect Brooklyn's skin than it will definitely be good enough to use on my "not-so-famous skin"!
"So instead of just rounding up the best new SPF's on the market and saying, "pick one of these," I set out to find solutions to specific sunscreen issues. I enrolled the help of two top dermatologists (chiefs in the SPF police force, if you will), and sent them the toughest questions that have come my way. Keep reading to find the best sunscreens based on your specific SPF gripes. And if you're still wondering which sunscreen you should use, leave us a comment. I'll personally chime in and suggest what I think is your best match." From Total Beauty.com

"Sure, I love to experiment with makeup trends -- but that doesn't mean that I've never shown up at a June barbecue wearing the exact same look I'd tried out for Valentine's Day. You'd think that the smeared eyeliner, shiny face, and visible sweat-stains at the end of the summertime party would serve as a bitter wakeup call and force my hand into adjusting my routine to accommodate the seasons. But, somehow I never fully get it and repeat the mistake more often than I'd like to admit."
"So, how's a girl supposed to get ready, look cute, and have everything stay in place when the weather heats up? I asked the pros for their best tips for a fresh, seasonal look -- and to help me re-jigger my routine for summer so that I can feel and look cool and collected now matter how hot it gets."
"If you're tired of melting into a pool of your own goop, follow my lead and jump into this pool of cool knowledge, and get ready for your most glamorous summer yet." From Total Beauty.com
My favorite style of designer handbags are the over-sized, "never full" totes. I love how a large bag can make even the most plain and ordinary outfits look instantly cool and put together. Add to that outfit a hot pair of designer sunglasses and maybe even a scarf and you have a winning look even if you are wearing jeans and a t-shirt! So looking fashionable like a celeb isn't really all that difficult. Be sure that your wardrobe includes a great luxury bag, cool sunglasses as well as some fun pieces of jewelry to add a pop of "coolness" to all your outfits.

Like many of us, you weren't born with model perfect sleek, smooth hair. But, oh, how you long to have it. Texture, humidity and heated styling tools and products all work against us in achieving our goals of smooth locks. Don't be discouraged.
There are a few tricks that you can do to realize your dream of frizz free hair. Choose wisely. Make sure that the hair straightener you are using is ceramic. Ceramic straighteners allow heat to be distributed evenly and glides over strands easily. Use a thermal hair protector spray such as GHD's thermal protector (available at Sephora) to deflect heat away from the hair's surface which creates an invisible shield around the hair cuticle to defend against heat damage and frizz.

"If this sounds all too familiar, it's time to amp up your immune system, says Monica Hershaft, MLH Wellness nutritionist at Santa Monica, Calif. Why? Turns out your immune system is at fault for your body reacting to seasonal allergens, like pollen and grass."Read on to learn more about ow to end seasonal allergies.
"While these environmental allergens are mostly harmless, a weak immune system will identify them as dangerous and overreact, says Hershaft. So what does your body do? Your immune system kicks into overdrive, fighting the intruders by triggering mucous production (so you expel the invaders by blowing your nose non-stop), watery eyes (so you cry them out), itchy throat (so you cough them out) … you get the drift. While those antihistamines may provide temporary relief of your symptoms, Brown says a much more effective, and healthy, way to ward off the allergy response is by building up your immune system.From Total Beauty.com

"Compared to its trendier cousins, lipstick and lip gloss, balm is often the forgotten friend that fails to receive any time in the spotlight. However, it's something that you'll find at the bottom of practically every woman's purse for good reason: With all the stuff we put on our lips, lip balm is a moisturizing must that preps the pout for a smooth, even application of lip color."

From ones that impart gorgeous berry colors to those that offer a whopping SPF 35, there's no shortage when it comes to the variety of lip balms available.

According to hairstylist to the Victoria's Secret models, Orlando Pita, " The sexiest hair is shiny and has a side part." Nothing high maintenance, just simple, loose natural looking waves with lots of shine and lived in texture. When it comes to the Victoria's Secret models sexy makeup " Black around the eyes is the sexiest look" says Tom Pecheux who "stroked on thin black lines" and used "Rodin Olio Lusso face oil and Estee Lauder DayWear Creme plus a dusting of bronzer and rosy blush." to give the models their sexy look.
As for sexy skin, the Victoria's Secret models always rock that quintessential dewy, bronzy glowing skin. To help you get that same kind of glow, check out the Charlotte Ronson A Summer's Kiss Face and Body Glow and skip the over-baked tanning bed tan.
You see, according to Dawn she generally find models underwhelming before the beauty teams get their hands on them. She'd gone backstage at New York Fashion Week for more seasons than she could count, and the way she would get through it without feeling horrible about herself (because of the tall/thin thing) is to focus on the negative. It sounds kind of sad, but the models' cellulite and acne makes them more human -- more likeable.
Even though Erin Heatherton and Lindsay Ellingson are Angels of the Victoria's Secret variety, she hoped that meeting them in person would reveal that they're not actually celestial beings. Wouldn't it be reassuring if they turned out to be regular women with problems just like the rest of us, Dawn thought?

As for me, I am always on a quest for a beautiful but believable bronze glow for my face. But figuring out the right amount and combination of foundation and bronzer you should be using can be a tricky thing.

As a mom I do a lot of talking with other moms about our children. One thing that I have noticed is that there seems to be an increasing amount of children that are being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I do not know if this is necessarily related to a deep health issue or a reflection of the faster and faster paced society we live in. Our kids have the numerous amounts of distractions in their lives. Whether it is Smart Phones, Ipods, Ipads, Kindles, Xboxes or the reality TV based society we live in it seems that there is no end in site.
These moms are very concerned about how challenging school is for their children. Problems range from not being able to complete school projects on time or being able to listen attentively to the classroom lessons. These seem to be common topics of discussion among moms these days and many moms are at their wits end trying to come up with solutions on how to get their children on the right track in school as well as life in general. I know how tough this maybe for parents as we all want the very best for our children. If you are a mom and you are experiencing these type of problems with your child and you are desperate for a solution don't be ashamed to consult with a healthcare practitioner. Trust me our kids are the future and they deserve our attention. So, take the first step and help your child today.

Now I know that a hairdresser friend of mine would definitely disagree with me and we constantly joke about all the hair products that we have experimented with both expensive and inexpensive. However, much to her chagrin I have been very happy with my "over the counter" shampoos and conditioners (you can't argue with success). Since I switch-up my shampoo and conditioner often it can start to get a "wee bit" expensive so I decided to give some reasonably priced products from Pantene a try. I am using the Pantene Nature Fusion Smooth Vitality Shampoo and The Pantene Pro-V Restoratives Breakage Defense Shampoo, I like mixing 2 different shampoos together for my perfect "shampooing concoction".
The other Pantene product I love is their Pro-V Restoratives Breakage Defense Shampoo which helps to strengthen your hair and prevent breakage. Not only have I noticed a HUGE difference in my breakage but my hairdresser has also noticed the difference. I have learned that a higher price tag does not always equal better results.

The problem is that "wash and wear" short hair can be really tough to pull off, says James Williams, head stylist at Canale Salon in Beverly Hills, Calif. The secret is getting a short hairstyle that works with your hair's natural texture. Guy Riggio, a Los Angeles-based Sally Hershberger stylist agrees, adding it's also important to get a cut that really works with your face shape.
Thankfully, some moms have sailed through new mommyhood without getting the prerequisite awful short haircut. Just look at Michelle Williams' youthful pixie, Reese Witherspoon's effortless layers, and Michelle Obama's chic bob. Short hairstyles don't get much better than these.
