How to Keep your Colored/Dyed Hair Roots in Check

This post was sponsored by Style Edit. All opinions and wording is my own. The photos have filters on them, but the actual hair of the models was un-retouched!

All right, so I have been blonde before and know just how hard upkeep is on dark roots. In fact, before I found this product, my root growth was one of the reasons I choose to go back to balayage instead of full on blonde! I first heard of Style Edit as the new way to achieve flawless blonde hair from a friend. She had tried the root concealer spray and boasted about getting a few extra weeks in between salon time. 


Style Edit has a root touch up powder and root concealer spray that instantly lightens and brightens to blend dark and gray roots. The color binding complex in the product with unique binding agents allow the pigments to glide over roots and locks color into place with just one swipe. The Style Edit root touch up is available for $24.50 at select salons nationwide. Blonde perfection is  available in dark blonde, medium blonde and light blonde hair colors. 

Melissa, my blonde model, didn't have any grey hairs to cover up, but she wanted more coverage on her dark roots in between salon visits. Check out Melissa's before and after transformation: before Style Edit's blonde perfection collection is on the left, and the after photo showing the cover-up and concealer is on the right! We used the root concealer spray, which is applied by holding the can 4 inches from the section you wish to cover, and spraying (kind of like using hairspray). We also used the root touch up product, which is applied the same way you apply compact powder makeup. Both products wash off after your first hair wash post application.

Are you a brunette from coloring, or maybe even trying to cover your grey hair? My mom often complains about her grey hair growth and having to go to the salon to hide the tell-tale sign of aging. In order to go to the root of the issue (see what I did there?!) and stop her from spending all of her money at the salon every few weeks, I had her come over and try out the Style Edit brunette beauty root concealer! This quick and convenient spray offers a pin point applicator allowing you to cover large areas of gray or regrowth. You use it similar to hairspray, holding about 6 inches from the area you are trying to mask with the application.  Brunette beauty is available in a range of shades, including: black/dark brown, medium/light brown, lightest brown/medium blonde, and even auburn/red. 

Check out my mom's before (left) and after (right) photos of the Style Edit's brunette collection. We used both the Root Concealer spray and the Root Touch Up compact powder. Greys be gone!

Glamour Gels Beauty Bar in Utah

Self-care, self-care, self-care. You know you have heard me talk about it before on this blog. I really believe in taking care of your self in order to present your best self. Now, I can't say that I like daily upkeep, because really, who likes doing their hair and makeup everyday? Going to bi-weekly, or even monthly, appointments to keep my beauty and maintenance in check and keep my daily routines to a minimum. I have been visiting Glamour Gels Beauty Bar for the past year and love that it is a "one-stop-shop" for what I need!

Casual Weekend Wear

Welcome to the weekend! Nothing makes me happier than Friday night because it means the entire weekend is ahead of me. Although, Saturday morning is pretty sweet, too. I am all about sleeping in! During my days off, I like to be as casual and comfortable as I can. We're talking stretchy fabric, messy hair, and shoes I can put on instantly. This outfit definitely captures all the feels of my casual-wear dreams.

I'll be spending this Friday with my intern off-loading business knowledge and shooting upcoming projects. Saturday I am heading to my friend Jacque's (from the blog Looks for Lovelies) baby shower, then out on the town later on with the girls! Of course, the over-planner that I am, Sunday is already booked with Spencer to walk around downtown in the Avenues (our new 'hood) and ogle and lust after the gorgeous homes! I hope your weekend plans are just as fulfilling. xx

Our New Mattress: Tuft and Needle Review

I was given this mattress for free by Tuft & Needle in exchange for review. All opinions are my own. I tell you exactly what I would tell my friends about it!

Honestly, I see someone ask about what mattress to buy at least once a week on Facebook! With all of the options out there, it was hard to narrow down our selection to one company to work with when we wanted a new sleeping area for our apartment! I combed through all the threads and read all the reviews online talking about different systems, pads, and beds. We finally settled on Tuft & Needle because I knew that they had two things in mind: quality and customer service. They did not disappoint in either of those areas!

Pink Off the Shoulder Top

UGH is all I can think, say, and feel about summer break coming to an end. I have loved being able to wake up, hang out in my comfy clothes, and work on my blog daily! Plus, vacation/lunch/drink/bathroom breaks can be taken whenever. I think I was meant to work from home! With school (teaching) starting up again in the next few weeks, I have been prepping everything like crazy!
