Hi, friends. As the year passes, I feel that more than ever routines have become vital to my self-care regimen. I wanted to offer some tips on how I’ve been managing this new normal we all have found ourselves in. Whether you live at home with family, a significant other, a furry friend, or alone; these are some ways that can help you decompress at night.

1. Night shower/ wash & condition hair for next day 

My bed is a sacred space so I like to enter it fresh and clean. In turn, I have always been a night shower person (I also love avoiding a blow-dryer). For shampoo and conditioner I am currently using the Hair Volume Multiplier with Bamboo- part of Pantene’s new Nutrient Blends Collection. 

The stand-out benefits from this collection for me are:

- Moisture
- Volume
- Free of silicones, parabens, mineral oil and dyes
- Strengthens hair

After shampooing and conditioning, I apply a bit of hair lotion or oil while my hair is damp. This helps to tame any flyaways while my hair air dries. 

2. Face mask and chill

My favorite thing to do right after a shower is put on a face mask. Since this gives me about 20 minutes to kill, I like to either check my final emails of the night or watch short videos on Youtube. Once the timer goes off, make sure you have a cold jade roller nearby.

3. Prep for tomorrow 

The best way to ease any anxiousness about the next day is to be ready for it. Make a list of what you’d like to complete for that day, prep meals, and pick out an outfit. Wake up with a plan! (even if that plan is taking it easy at home)

If you happen to be on a non-wash day I like the Pantene Waterless Collection, specifically the Mist Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist. I’ve been using products from this collection since this time last year. Ultimate way to reset and refresh. 

- Fine mist and easy to apply
- Rids of flyaways and frizz
- Moisturizing and lightweight 

4. Disconnect from tech
At least an hour before bed, switch your phone to DO NOT DISTURB. Turn off the news and shut that laptop. This is your time to tell your body it’s almost time to sleep. Once I’m in bed I like to read. Getting lost in a book versus constant scrolling has been the ultimate distraction for me these days.

5. Breathing apps

The last thing I do before I fall asleep is guided breathing exercises. There are tons of great breathing/meditation apps that can help you do this. It’s a simple way to alleviate any anxiety or a racing mind at night.

I truly believe that routines are so important to help keep consistency and calm in our lives. We may not always be able to check every box each night, and that is completely ok. Find what makes you happy whether that be adding an extra 15 minutes to your skincare routine, journaling, or having fun trying new products like Pantene’s Hair Volume Multiplier with Bamboo which is available at CVS! Sometimes the smallest things help us smile the most.

Oh Paris. You really are special. 

This was my second time visiting this beautiful city and if I learned anything it was that no matter how much you plan you really can't see it all. I went with a list of things to do, places to visit, and a restaurant list as long as a CVS receipt. 

But between squeezing in shows, events, meeting up with friends + my desire to go vintage shopping, there really wasn't enough time in the day. 

Oh did I mention I had severe jet-lag the ENTIRE time? That was super fun. **note to self: melatonin is not your friend** But even with the dreary winter weather it's hard not to be in complete awe at all times. 

As I mentioned before, I really wanted to go vintage shopping during my visit. I was able to dedicate one day during my week there to accomplish this and in my next post will be sharing exactly where I went- STAY TUNED!

Sony provided me the XB32 EXTRA BASS Portable BLUETOOTH Speaker to try out and it absolutely blew my mind! It's like taking that festival feeling with you with big party sounds that truly feel like you're hearing live music.

First thing you'll probably notice are the party lights. Yes, I said it, party lights. The SRS-XB32 has multi-colored flashing lights that sync to the beat and a flashing strobe. You can change the color of the line light that goes around the speaker to suit your mood.

Battery life is important to me because I like to bring a portable speaker with me when I travel, go on shoots, and when I'm having a dance party in a hotel room. 

Other things to note about this speaker if you're in the market for a new one is the the USB port for charging and the Fiestable app6 fthat allows you to control the lighting on the SRS-XB32 as well as being able to use motion control gestures on your smartphone screen. 

So excited to FINALLY have a portable speaker. I made a new playlist to celebrate >>> HERE

Time to turn the volume up on my Sony XB32 EXTRA BASS Portable BLUETOOTH Speaker!!

I love a good reason to get dressed up. 

Had an amazing night at the 3rd annual Revolve Awards surrounded by badass, inspiring women. So lucky to call a bunch of them my friends. 

I felt like a million bucks in my look completely from Revolve. Links below! 

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!
