Lovelo Beauty and MOPS Pampering Day

Hey Guys! Yesterday I was blessed with the opportunity to volunteer some time doing make up for MOPS (which stands for Mothers of Pre Schoolers)  pampering day. There were some other businesses there giving their time to some of  the women involved in MOPS through massage, hair styling, make up and more..

 

I  feel fortunate to have been asked to participate.

Here’s what the website has to say about Mops,“MOPS stands for “mothers of preschoolers” – but don’t let that confuse you. MOPS is about meeting the needs of every mom of a child from conception through kindergarten. Whether you’re urban, suburban, rural, stay-at-home, working, teen, adoptive, special-needs, single or married, MOPS is for you!

 

Being moms is what brings us together and allows us to build a community. The early years of being a mom are just as foundational to you as they are to your baby, and those years are filled with unique needs that other moms instinctively understand.”

Cool Care for your Hot Tools

Hi Everyone! If you’re like me, you have quite a few different hair styling products. Maybe a curling iron, flat iron, blow dryer, etc. And, there is not really a “cute” way to store these besides setting them on your bathroom counter and creating a mess of cords. I found this holder, “Cool Care”, by AmericanBeauty and it is the perfect way to organize, and protect myself from the heat of these tools. 

I love that this holder comes in two styles, one for your bathroom counter top or one that you can mount in the wall. These can fit most hairdryers, curling irons, and hair straighteners. 

The names of the game here are convenience, safety, and functionality. These are not cute, or “pretty” but they have made my bathroom counter top look a whole lot more organized, and made reaching for my blowdryer and straightener a lot easier. I never again have to worry about the heat from the tools melting something on my counter top. 

You can look at all these products at: http://www.americanbeauty.ws/CoolCare-Curling-Iron-Flat-Iron-Wall-Mounted-Safety-Stainless-Steel.html  I really enjoy sharing with all of you my “beauty finds” and I’m dying to know what you’ve found lately!? 

Let me know!

LOVE, Lauren

I received these products from the company for consideration. I was not paid for this review, and my opinions are always completely honest. I would only share with you all the things I REALLY love.

Styles with Curl for Valentine's Day- Sultra Bombshell

Hey Guys! It's 2* Fahrenheit here and it's around 80* in Kenya... I can't seem to get warm here, so I can't wait to be there!  I was playing around with my curling iron the other day and really love the look of wavy curly hair right now. I think soft curls are very romantic for the month of February.

[slideshow]

The curling iron I used is the Sultra Bombshell. It is a single rod curling iron, 1", and does not has a clamp , so you get very even bouncy curls or you can create soft wave like curls.

Here are 3 styles I LOVE this month and you can create these with the Sultra bombshell curling iron! :) These would be great hair styles for a valentines day in or night out!

Olivia Wilde with Soft curls. Curl your hair and clip on side back with bobby pins. Leave the other side out and spritz on shine spray to make your hair look extra shiny and glamourous.

Love this slightly curly side swept braid!! Put lightly wavy hair in a side braid. Leave out sections around your face and curl slightly. :)

Curl your hair and pull it back into a low side messy bun. Make sure you leave out pieces around your face making it look a little messy. Curl small pieces around your face if you want.

Hope you enjoyed seeing these three styles I LOVE for curly hair. If you'd like to see the curling iron I used, here is the Sultra Website again, http://sultra.com/

Hair Extensions -Jessica Simpson Vs. Le Angelique

Hey Guys!! I've got a few things to say about hair extensions. I'm a newbie to putting in fake hair but I have to say...it's pretty cool! :)  I've tried two different types of clip-in's and I want to tell you guys my thoughts.

Here is my intro video from YouTube to the hair extension battle....

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FwQ_HoVFICo]

The first is the Jessica Simpson HairDo Extensions. (I am just speaking about the type I tried which is the bump up the volume all in one clip in piece.) It looks like this.

This one is great if your hair is thick and you already have some natural volume in your hair. It works well with thicker hair...and it works well if you're really going to tease and "bump up" your hair.

For me, since my hair is pretty thin... I found this all in one piece to be VERY challenging to put in and have it look natural. And the clips seemed to keep showing through in the crown of my head.

The other kind I've tried are the Le Angelique 7 piece set clip in extensions. These come in different size strips. You can choose to put a 3 prong strip, 2 prong or 1 prong..or you can put all of them in your hair on different parts of your head. I know what you're thinking (this sounds challenging) but, it's really not!  I found this one MUCH easier than the all in one piece. Reason being, these were far less visible clips when in my hair. Even though I have fine hair I could easily hide these and place them anywhere on my head. These are what the Le Angelique Extensions look like.

My conclusion is... if you have fine or thin hair go for a set of clip in extensions not just one large piece. The set's like this Le Angelique one of 7 are more pricey than the Jessica Simpson brand but , they are very worth it!

Thank you all for reading..enjoy your night.
