This week I thought I'd shout out few PSA's of 5 things I think you should know...hair tricks I've found helpful, great deals, or fabulous products. So, let's go....
1. Who would have thought...?!?!? This is a great idea for creating volume in your hair. I haven't tried it yet myself, but it seems brilliant to me!
2. On another hair related note, I thought this was another helpful trick in eliminating that dreadful back part! I did try this one myself with success (actually I've used it several times)! I've used it just the way she shows you with a straightening iron & also with just my curling iron using the same method. My curling iron is usually out & on, so that was just easier for me.
3. I've recently found myself obsessed over Tote Bags. I often wonder what triggers these things we get hooked on. I mean, why, after so many years without, must I have like 6 different tote bags...?? I don't know. Anyway, I've heard about Thirty-One before, but have never been to a party or really seen any of their products. Well, I saw a fantastic Gym Bag they had & knew I needed it!! It was actually the Special of the Month for April, so I ended up getting the gym bag plus two other totes because it worked out to be a better deal if I did it that way. Anyway, I'd really love to go on & on about the Gym Bag, BUT they aren't currently selling it anymore, so I'll spare you (apparently it was really super popular though so I'm hoping they bring it back)! I got the two totes pictured below however, & really couldn't be happier! I first used the smaller one to haul food & such to Mother's Day Brunch & immediately got comments & ooh's-&-awes from my Mom & Sister. If you've never looked at Thirty-One products before I think it's definitely worth a peek! If you don't know a Consultant, visit Amity's page & she'd be more than happy to help you! She gave me great advice on which products best fit my needs. I'll try & keep you posted if I hear the gym bag comes back!

4. I've been keeping an eye out for colored footwear lately. I decided I didn't have enough fun colored shoe options in my closet. Sadly, I was disappointed in the overall shoe selection at my local mall. However, Nine West has some fantastic options. So many in fact, that you'll have a tough time deciding on which pair(s) to get!! I've pictured some of my favorites below. Their prices vary depending on the shoe & what sales are running, but you can generally expect anywhere from $40-$100 a pair. I personally ended up with 2 pairs that I grabbed while they were having a Sale, furthermore, I limited myself to only choosing pairs that were already on markdown.
Top: Old Navy
Skirt: Banana Republic
Necklace: Hot Mama - no longer online, but you may have luck at a retail store location (I found it on major markdown at my local store).
