Pantene Waterless Collection

I'll admit, I'm not the fastest at getting ready. The struggle is always real. My biggest challenge is that each day is different and I usually find myself running from shoots, to appointments, to events. Touch-ups are a constant part of my day and need to be done quick so finding products that work is crucial. 

*cue to hair and makeup in the car*

If I had my way, I would wash my hair every day. Alas, my colored, thick locks ain't having it. I want to preserve my colored hair as long as possible but I also need a product that rids the oiliness from not washing and frizziness from color damage. 

Pantene introduced their new Waterless Collection which is all about extending your non-wash days. My favorites from the collection are the Pantene Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Foam + Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist. The Pantene Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Foam has Pro-Vitamin B5 and orchid flower water in the foam, which work to release clumped hair. The lusciously whipped sulfate and paraben free cleansing cloud dissolves oil and refreshes your style, no washing required.

The Pantene Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist is a mixture between a leave-in conditioner and a styling spray. The super-fine sulfate and paraben free mist evenly distributes its nourishing ingredients on frizzy, tangled, or just plain unruly hair, delivering 24-hour frizz protection between washes.

To make life easier (cause you know I love yah) I've listed how to use each product below!

Pantene Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Foam

  1. Shake the can well and dispense a small amount into your fingertips
  2. Section your hair and start with a small amount 
  3. Apply to DRY hair at the roots and rub it in
  4. Brush out and style as you like. Your hair may feel a little damp after you apply, but don’t worry, that’s normal. It’s just the foam doing its thing and it dries quickly.

  1. Hold the can 6-8 inches away from your hair for optimal coverage. DON’T hold the can too closely to your hair.
  2. Spray from the mid-lengths & downwards on dry hair. DON’T spray at your roots.

I challenge you to extend your non-wash days with the new Pantene Waterless Collection. This duo has seriously transformed my non-wash routine. Pick yours up the new Waterless Collections for a limited time at CVS!

In partnership with Reebok 

If there's a combo that is white hot right now it is sneakers with dresses. It's a relaxed, cool girl vibe with minimal effort. Imagine. this look with heels? Completely different!  

So happy I was introduced to this pair of Reebok Vintage Club C 85. I fell in love instantly with the vintage, 90's feel that is very on trend right now. It's the classic Reebok look with the Union Jack symbol along the side with no excess or riffraff. 

No matter how pairs of sneakers I get, I without a doubt always gravitate to ones that are simple with clean lines. 

Wear them with a dress running around town, with jeans to the Farmer's Market, or with leggings at the airport. You also can't beat the price point!

Linked this pair and other styles/colorways down below! 

Ray-Ban x Nordstrom: Proud to Belong

posted on: Monday, July 29, 2019


In partnership with Ray-Ban and ShopStyle.

No outfit is complete without a good pair of sunglasses, that is just a fact! It's pretty crazy how such a small accessory has the ability to take a look to the next level. I'm partnering with Ray-Ban and Nordstrom to showcase the iconic sunglasses brand that I have been wearing for literally over a decade. 

My favorite pair is definitely Ray-Ban's Hexagonal Flat Lenses (I have them in 2 colors and I love them!). 

This summer I am so happy to support Ray-Ban's message #ProudToBelong. 2019 has definitely been a transformative year for me thus far. I've gone through huge life changes that have really made me reflect on the person I am and where I've come. 

When I reflect on my past, I've always had an underlining feeling that I didn't belong - whether that was being a minority growing up in a predominantly white area, or working in an industry where the beauty standard is so high and not feeling like I fit the traditional mold. 

One great bonus of getting older is feeling more comfortable in your own skin (the hype is real guys)! I've been forced to really look in the mirror and confront all the insecurities that I've heavily carried on my back for years. I can proudly say I've come a long way from that shy teenager in high school or timid wallflower in college to not be afraid to walk into a room and own it. 

If I could give my younger self advice, well, I could pretty much write a whole book on it! 

We're halfway through 2019 and I have a good feeling it will only get better from here!

Denim skirts are synonymous with summer but this season I'm ditching my mini's and going the maxi route. I love that they are casual and easy but also feel elevated at the same time. 

Wear them with boots, strappy sandals or mules. They really are a basic staple you can style an infinite amount of ways.  

I've linked some of my favorites below!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pantene. All thoughts and opinions are mine. 

There are so many things to love about spring/summer- warmer temps, longer days, endless getaways, and…festival season! In the last 2 months I’ve been to two festivals ( I know, crazy) and although I had the best time, they definitely took a toll and disrupted my regular routine.  

Festivals usually equal over-styled, over-worked, over-processed hair that bear the sun for hours on end. My hair is extremely dry on a normal day, so after my festival adventures are done, it’s super important for me to repair my hair back to health.  

Pantene is the official haircare sponsor for Coachella, Stagecoach and Firefly this year so what a perfect time to be introduced to the new Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots. I’ve been using one tube weekly in place of my normal conditioner. They are SUPER easy to use. Apply to wet hair and make sure to target areas that see the most damage. The product is also formulated to prevent overdosing so no need to hold back! Leave in for 30 seconds, rinse for 30 seconds, and you’re done! Be sure not to over-rinse. 

The Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots’ single dose-tube contains a deeply absorbing blend of Pro-Vitamin B5 and other ingredients that target damaged areas to give hair the resilience and flexibility it needs to endure styling and other environmental stresses. No wonder they are the #1 selling new treatment in the haircare category. 

One problem I’ve noticed with other deep-conditioners is that they tend to make my hair feel weighed down. The quick rinsing with the Intense Rescue Shots avoids this.  

They are definitely my go-to for salon-like hair treatments.  

So ladies, enjoy the festival and let loose without worrying about your locks! Available at Target!

I’ve been a long-time fan of Olivia Culpo so when I found out she was doing a collection with Express you can imagine my excitement.

Express partnered with Olivia Culpo to design an exclusive collection that uses
bold color & modern silhouettes geared towards ambitious, empowered women everywhere - with lots to accomplish. 

I love the messaging behind the collection because it’s something that really resonates with me as someone who strives to be just that- empowered! They really nailed it with their designs. It ranges from everything from tracksuits, to cargo shorts, and knits. The variety is great and can all be easily mix and matched with each other. 

The High Waisted Stripe Track Pant and Track Jacket in red is one of my favorites. Wear it with a crop tee and your favorite pair of heels or white sneakers. The Utility Jumpsuit is also one of those pieces everyone needs in their closet. I love the neutral color - just add on a bold belt and skinny heels for an easy, chic look. 

Here I am wearing the Surplice Sequin Dress that is an absolute show-stopper. The color is so rich and the silhouette is beyond flattering. I styled it with heels but definitely will wear it again with a pair of black ankle boots and a leather jacket.

I’ve linked my favorite pieces down below and you can check out the full collection on the Express website.

Dying to hear which ones are your favs so please let me know in the comments!
