I'd rename this to It's an 11, it's that good.

Dry Shampoo, A Love Story (And Step-by-Step Guide)

Do you ever discover something and wonder how you functioned without it for so long? Enter dry shampoo three years ago. I was at the peak of incorrectly washing my hair everyday, and it was as straw-like, dull, and as knotty as a fine-chained necklace. But once I started working at the salon and picking up on pearls of wisdom, something that was mentioned over and over again was try to extend the time between washes.

Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioia

After adding Acqua di Gioia to my Sephora wish list two years ago, I finally purchased a tester back in March that is still going strong. I recently picked up a backup so I didn't have to be without what I consider one of the most universally pleasing scents I've ever come across. Notes of mint, lemon, and pink pepper blend wonderfully to create a fragrance that will give you an endless string of compliments.

I've been daydreaming about an outfit like this for quite some time. It has everything I require:

All About Argan Magic

It seems that in the past year, there were a few trigger words that would make any beauty enthusiast's ears perk up. For skincare, it was "charcoal", for makeup it was "vamp" and for hair it was "argan oil". For years I used Moroccanoil, the wonderful yet obscenely price hair care line to the stars. Even with my employee discount, Moroccanoil still cost a pretty penny, and going into college I decided to forgo the 35 dollar bottles of conditioner and begin my quest for something comparable. Over Christmas break, I came across Argan Magic on Hautelook and decided to give it a go. Want to know my thoughts? Read on!
