NYFW Looking Strands with TRESemmé Micro-Mist

This post is sponsored by Mirum. All opinions expressed are my own.


It’s officially New York Fashion Week (NYFW) where all the fashionistas gather to see what the clothing industry has to offer to the upcoming season. Hair and makeup are a major part of every show and I made a tiny resolution a few weeks ago to try and style my hair a few times a week and this next product is helping me do that and be fancy like those at NYFW.

I guess the closest I will get to NYFW is a night out with friends or to a fancy dinner, which is fine by me and these events don’t always mean an extreme updo. In fact, when I googled, “top hairstyles for shoulder-length hair,” this style I’m about to show you came up in many pictures. And I can see why. It’s simple, elegant and easy to do and I'm sure many versions of it will end up on the runways. #TresRunway2018

And I’m creating it in celebration of TRESemmé Micro-Mist Line just launching at CVS stores nationwide and @ It’s the latest from the brand that helps achieve and hold the latest styles with natural movement without the stiffness. These sprays use a superfine micro-mist that’s able to penetrate through the top layer of hair to provide deeper coverage throughout hair. This is due to the blend of duo polymers inside the spray that forms bonds to hold hair in place but still allowing it to move. Because the spray inside these Micro-Mist Hair Sprays are compressed, the cans are smaller (5.5oz) than the traditional 11oz size so it will last just as long. And look how sleek and sexy the can is! It fits nicely on my hand and I have a good grip on it.

Holiday Hair with #SamsClubHairCollection

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Mirum. All words are my own.

We are full-on into the holiday season and I have not had a chance to get my hair trimmed! What’s a girl to do? Well, improvise, for one, and since I had a huge holiday get-together this past weekend, I think my hair style came out pretty well.

Whenever I am overdue for a cut and have an event or party to go to, this wavy side look has become my go-to style. It’s dressy and hides the fact that, well, I’m due for a cut.



For this one, I start with Suave Avocado + Olive Oil Smoothing Shampoo & Conditioner that I pick up in huge 40oz bottles at my local Sam’s Club. We are in frizzy season and these hair products contain avocado and olive oil, which is known for their rich emollients, which helps keep the frizzies away. And since it’s been so hot, I love that this duo protects from frizz, even in 95% humidity!

I will be in Sam’s Club a lot this season picking up essential party supplies and I always know I can depend on their hair care aisle. They make it so easy because they carry familiar brands like TRESemme, Suave Kids, and Nexxus, to name a few. You can also see more here.

What you will need for this tutorial:

  • 1” barrel curling iron
  • Duckbill clips
  • 3 French side combs
  • Fascinator

#HolidayHairHowTos with CVS

This post is sponsored by Mirum, but opinions expressed are my own.

The holidays are pretty much upon us and last minute get-togethers will be common place so I wanted to create a cool hair style for when these crop up. I love that I can get all I need to create any style at my local CVS. Their hair care aisle is bursting with all the latest hair care products from brands you know like TRESemmé®, Suave® and Dove.


I’ve been wearing my hair in a bun lately but when I make a top knot, the bun part is kind of boring so I found a way to jazz it up with braids and what I call the braided bun. It’s really easy to do!

What you will need for this tutorial:

  • Elastic band
  • Lots of bobby pins
  • Hair spray
  • Dry shampoo

The key to this style is sleek and polished. The bun itself can be a little disheveled but the rest of the hair should be smooth. I achieved a really smooth finish without being crunchy with TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Hair Spray. It gives me max control and tames those frizzies beautifully. This is a key product in this tutorial.

After putting dry hair into a high ponytail, divide the hair in half and make a braid with each side. Before making each braid, spray some dry shampoo along the hair in the ponytail. I like to use Dove Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo to give strands some grip, which will help hold the braid longer than without.

You don’t have to elastic the ends of each braid since you will be tucking them inside the bun, but you can if you want to.


Then, wrapping one braid around the middle and then the other, pin with bobby pins as you go around. Make sure you are always holding the ends of the hair as you go around so they don’t become unraveled. Top with more TRESemmé hairspray to seal it all in, and you’re done.

Are You Down with #SamsClubHairCollection?

Disclaimer: Post sponsored by Mirum. All opinions are my 100% my own.

Where do you do most of your weekly shopping? Because I live in the city, there are not many warehouse stores nearby but I do make an effort to hit one up every other month when I visit my brother because I like to stock up on items like toilet paper, tissues, sneakers every few months, and of course hair care. They carry well-known Unilever brands like Suave, Suave Kids, Nexxus and TRESemmé. See more about the brands by clicking here


I love hair care items by TRESemmé like the Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner shown here. These protect from chemical, mechanical and heat damage and they are formulated with biotin to help strengthen strands.

And since we’re officially headed into the holidays, I know I’ll be entertaining at our home a lot and I never know who will show up at our doorstep! As a host, I need to be the three C’s at all times, calm, cool, collected, and I’m adding a word to this list, prepared! And it’s not just about having food at the ready. Keeping the guests bathrooms well-stocked is important as I always want my guests to feel as comfortable as if they were in their own home. That’s very important to me.




And isn’t it all about getting out of the store as quick as you can? Well Sam’s Club offers a Scan & Go app where you can use their app to scan the bar code of each product as you shop, pay for the items through the app and then show your receipt as you exit the store. No more long lines to wait in!

#YourStyleYourWay with TRESemme

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Mirum, but all opinions expressed are my own.

Does it seem like there are more music festivals around the country these days? I’ve been to 3 of them this summer, which is more than I’ve been to in one season ever! And living in California, there are more than I can count to attend so I have to be selective.

I totally have a go-to festival hair style too! I’ve tried a few different looks over the years and this half up/half down seems to work best for me. It’s relaxed yet fun and so simple to do! 


Parting the hair down the middle, make a braid on each side starting at the front of each side and I like to make some beachy waves under the braids. I always top it off with a fascinator I’m liking at the moment. What do you think of this look?


These festivals are quite the scene so you totally have to plan what you’re going to wear and yet be comfortable yet stylish, right? And dried out strands are just not going to cut it at these festivals so that’s why I rely on hair products I purchase at CVS/pharmacy from TRESemmé, Dove and Suave. I kind of live by the motto #BetterCareforFestivalHair so about 1 week before I go, I give my hair the super treatment with TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Instant Recovery Mask. In just 5 minutes it gives my strands an intensive moisture boost and gets it ready to handle what the desert is going to dish out. All that sun etc. really does a number on my hair.


Want to save some dough? Take the quiz at to save $2 off any TWO (2) TRESemmé, Suave or Dove Hair.

Plus, get $5 extrabucks® rewards when you spend $15 on participating TRESemmé, Dove or Suave® Hair care products. Offer valid WITH CARD 8/27/17 – 9/2/17.

So visit the “Your Style, Your Way” quiz to find a unique festival hairstyle tutorial featuring the TRESemmé Protect 7 line and share which hairstyle you will try this festival season.

5. CERAVE Renewing SA Cleanser for Normal Skin ($12.99/8oz @ – from what I’ve read, the pH in this cleanser is not in the ideal range for the salicylic acid in this but the cleanser to be effective but it’s still a great cleanser.
