AVEDA be curly intensive detangling masque: Ever since AVEDA discontinued their BEST product (elixir) for curly hair, I’ve been waiting for the release of the next greatest thing. finally, the wait is over. the be curly masque softens, and detangles, leaving curls perfect. I rarely wear my hair curly, mainly because its too short, but this product might have your girl rockin curls a little more before summer is over.

1.  MAYBELLINE great lash mascara: neverrrrr clumps, no matter how many coats I apply.

2. NYX matte lipstick: any matte lipstick I use has to be long lasting, and NEVER too dry. I can’t have crusty, cracked lips. (but a way to avoid dry lips… use burt’s bees lip balm as a lip primer)

3. O! WOW makeup brush: my newest addiction! use less makeup, and blend effortlessly.

4. NYX wonder stick: I used this stick when I learned to contour. one side is for highlighting, and the other side for contouring.

5. ALMAY brown defining pencil: easy glide on for a natural eyebrow.

boardwalk empire season 5: women’s fashion

Mannnn, I’m sad this is the last season of Boardwalk Empire. Even with the deaths of some of my favorite characters, I still watch faithfully every Sunday night. It’s so draining to find great shows with great story lines these days, and I’m not ready to let Boardwalk Empire go.

But, one thing I am not sad about, is the amazing women’s fashion, and hair. From head to toe, every woman in season 5 was stunning. I mean, even Gillian Darmody who has been in jail for 6 years looked great.

Fashion in the 1930s for women was feminine, it was glamour and glitz. Shorter hair, in a bob style was a huge change from long locks.

These women did it right, and I am OBSESSED… BOB SEASON is here!
