Beauty Brands: Hair Cut + Conditioning

I just love Beauty Brands Salon. Julie takes care of me and my hair while I’m there, and I always leave refreshed and looking/feeling great!

Yesterday was my trunk show for my men’s clothing line, Stag Harbor. I knew I wanted to get my hair done, and I knew Julie would do a great job. I also needed a hair cut, because my hair was getting a little too long and it was taking me forever to blow dry it!

After my deep conditioning treatment (which was awesome and only took about 10 minutes), I asked Julie to cut 3 inches off my hair. It seemed dramatic, but it was much need and I was still able to put my hair up in a ponytail to hit the gym. Julie made it look phenomenal, and then she curled it up for my big evening ahead.

Y’all, if you’re looking to get your hair done for the Holidays, Holiday Parties, etc- you should go Beauty Brands. The people are so friendly, and there are only 5 chairs so the experience is really imitate and the conversations are discreet.

Black IKAT

Black IKAT


Today, I’m showing off another gorgeous top from Jules Reid. I love how easy these tops are, and the material y’all: the material is just FABULOUS! I went with this simple black and cream/white IKAT top, because it’s the perfect now and later top. When the temperature starts to drop, I can throw this on with a little jacket, a black mini skirt, tights, and boots, and be styled up for the fall and winter.


Neon Tassels


It was so fun shooting in the River Market Park! They recently put up some multicolored flags to entice people to utilize the park during these gorgeous days that we have been having lately.
This dress is so fun for summer! I love how the front is pretty simple, but the back has a fabulous dual layered cutaway that is lined with tassels on both sides. This dress would be perfect for a little summer dinner party or a trip to the beach. Go scoop up this dress for under $50. Also, this crescent moon pendant necklace from Ukiyology is such a fun item for summer outfits. I loved wearing it with this dress, but I can see it on REPEAT with jeans/jean shorts and basic tees for the summer. It has such an effortlessly cool vibe that I totally dig, and it’s about half the price of a very similar Lucky Stars necklace.
I hope you all have a great day, and thanks so much for stopping by!

bareMinerals x Beauty Brands Event

The Event:

This weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the launch of bareMinerals makeup line hitting the shelves at one-stop beauty destination, Beauty Brands! Upon arrival, my friend Nicole and I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast bar and I was custom color matched by a makeup specialist. (Thank goodness I was, because the tinted moisturizer that I had been using was not the right color for my skin!)

The Makeover:

First she started out with bareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer Cream in Light, which smoothed out my skin and prepared it for additional makeup. (For quick jaunts the the grocery store or for au natural day makeup, I could easily wear this alone)! After she custom color matched me, she decided on bareMinerals Original Foundation in Ivory 06 she used that to even out any imperfections on my skin and even used it as a brightener under my eyes! After we were done with that, we moved on to eyes (the fun part!) She used the bareMineral Eye Primer on top of my lids to prepare for eyeshadow, and we were both impressed with how the shadow never creased on top of the primer. She finished off my look with the bareMineral Ready Eyeshadow Palette in The Posh Neutrals. #myBBlook

The Takeaway:

It was so fun getting a mini makeover, enjoying the company of other Kansas City Bloggers, and exploring all of the fun new products that bareMinerals & Beauty Brands have to offer! You should go to a Beauty Brand close to you or go online and check out all of the new bareMinerals makeup. Be sure to hashtag #myBBlook on your social media pages!
