When it Comes to Hairstyling, Pink Out Loud!

Who doesn’t love being stylish for a cause? More importantly, what girl doesn’t love PINK?

Paul Mitchell has brilliantly combined these interests in their fabulous #PINKOUTLOUD campaign, a partnership with Bright Pink which focuses on prevention and early-detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.

paul-mitchell-limited-edition-pink-out-loud-express-ion-dry-hairdryerIn support, they’ve released a bunch of fab new styling goodies including my favorite, the official Express Ion Dry+ hairdryer. Not only is it the best hairdryer I’ve ever used (hello, LCD display and FIVE temp/speed settings + diffuser and cool shot), but it’s sups-adorbs and for a good cause to boot!

How can you help support this stylish and generous effort? Here are a few easy ways (2 out of 3 won’t cost you a dime either):

  • Capture your best pink lipstick selfie, leave a mark on a lover or snap a pic of a friend blowing the world a kiss, and share the images on your social channel with #PINKOUTLOUD to help create social buzz and inspire the women we love to be proactive and seal their long-lasting wellness with a kiss;
  • Donate at Brightpink.org’s page; or
  • Text PINKOUTLOUD to 59227 to sign up for Bright Pink’s monthly Breast Health Reminder™ text with tips to be Breast Self-Aware, and encourage the women in your life to do the same!

Nexxus Oil Infinite Hair Care Review: Hollywood Edition!

I love my red locks, but I was looking for more of that shiny hair-commercial look on a daily basis. Along came Nexxus’ new Oil Infinite line, and I was lucky enough to get a chance to review it myself in a video we filmed for Nexxus at Walmart. Boom!

Dip Dye Reverse-Ombre DIY Haircolor


This post is sponsored by Bigen.

If you’d asked me a month ago, I’d have said I’d never change my hair. In fact, many SD fans bemoaned the idea at all – my lion-clown mane is my signature, they said. Alas, I’m first and foremost a beauty blogger, and we all must grow and change.

So I did it all by myself, like a big girl and in the My Little Pony parlance of our times decided to do a dip dye, reverse-ombre kinda look. To clarify for those interested (and to soothe the OCD colorists out there), let’s talk about what these terms actually mean and the difference between them: Continue reading “Dip Dye Reverse-Ombre DIY Haircolor” »

All too often, subscription boxes can leave us feeling – well, boxed in. I don’t know about you, but I like more than just beauty, or just fashion, or just fitness products. But I don’t have unlimited funds to get subscription boxes each month for all the kinds of products I like.

FabFitFun Summer 2015 Box ReviewEnter FabFitFun, a sea­sonal sub­scrip­tion gift box with full-size fash­ion, beauty, fit­ness and lifestyle goodies. Since it’s a mix, I wasn’t sure if all the products in FabFitFun’s box would appeal to me, but as soon as I opened the Summer 2015 box, I was delighted. They just GET me. It felt like Christmas in July, and I didn’t even shop on Prime Day. Continue reading “FabFitFun Summer 2015 Box Review” »
