The spring and summer seasons are such a busy time of year. For me, these next few months are busier than ever! There are so many events like Mother's Day, graduations, weddings, bridal showers, baby showers and milestone birthday parties to attend. I literally have every weekend booked through mid July! These are all big events that I need to plan for. I always seem to have a busy time of year like this and it stresses me out. I decided that I need to stop worrying about what I am wearing and put together a few key looks. This way, I can have fun, enjoy these events and make memories with my friends, family and loved ones and not stress.
This year, I am putting together little event looks by buying the right key pieces — dresses, shoes, jewelry, bags even planning the hair looks and makeup so I am prepared. I am going with a classy theme, so I can mix and match everything; I only need a few key pieces which saves me a lot of money.
We are seeing a lot of color this year, but when you are keeping it to just a few pieces, you can't go out and buy a pink dress and wear it five times without people noticing. This is why I invest in basic colored items, like a white, nude and black dress and accent it with gold jewelry and a bright bag or shoes for day; for night it is always black.
For makeup, I concentrate on beautiful skin both day and night. That means, flawless foundation, with a little bronzer and blush just on the apples of my cheeks. On my eyes, I keep it more natural during the day with a pop of color on my lips. At night, I am all about the smoky eye with a ton of mascara. I actually keep my favorite nighttime mascara, nude lipstick and gloss in a little makeup bag for my clutch at the ready because I know this will be coming with me every weekend.
For my hair, I wear it down for daytime events and in an updo for nighttime events. Pinterest is such a great source of inspiration for updo's and I print them out and have photos by my vanity. Having my hair in it's best condition so it is smooth, frizz-free and manageable is key. I have been using Nexxus Oil Infinite system.
Nexxus Oil Infinite system is a two part system that contains a Rebalancing Shampoo and Restoring Conditioner. Specifically formulated using concentrated, 100% pure Elastin Protein and natural Babassu and Marula Oils, this Oil Infinite regimen works to renew hair texture and restore smooth, sleek, fluid beauty.
I'm thrilled that my hair is frizz-free, smooth and manageable and looks perfect for all of my events. The Rebalancing Shampoo does a great job at cleansing my hair and never makes it feel overly dry. It is silicone-free which is a plus. The blend of oils in the Restoring Conditioner really help make my hair smooth without weighing it down.
