Some call it trendy, I call it classic, but there’s no denying that these royal blue babes are raising heart rates all over.  With Mother’s Day on the horizon, my thoughts have turned to a most natural & familiar place: handbags.  After pulling through that cold & dreary winter, isn’t it time for a bright & refreshing treat?

51a5e94a5d277f34d9fdeebffb5eae27This photo of Lily Aldridge at the Save Venice Gala stopped me dead in my pinterest-prowling tracks.  Does she not look STUNNING?  I am most intrigued by her neutral yet powerful makeup.  Here’s a breakdown:

Nude lip:  Chanel Rouge Coco in “Grace”

Light Bronzer:  Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Color (match your shade)

Easy Lashes: Chanel Le Volume Mascara

Strong Brow: Le Metier de Beaute Eyebrow Pencil

Add a sleek center part, a sexy lace shirt, a flowery headpiece and POOF, you’re in a Dolce & Gabbana ad.

ps: I currently use all of these products (among many others) and ADORE them.

Hi guys and welcome back to TBF!  These days I’ve got a lot going on.  Next week I’ll be five months pregnant (I KNOW!), I’m working part-time and in my down time I’m entertaining (playing with, chasing, singing & dancing with to Frozen) my little guy!  I don’t have a ton of time to worry about my hair, so when L’Oreal asked me to review their new Advanced Hair Care Thickening Shampoo, Conditioner & Amplifying Concentrate, I jumped at the chance for more volume.  Isn’t that what everyone wants??  As I mentioned before, my alone time is scarce, so I’ll keep it brief:

1.  The whole line is fabulous.  I swear, my hair has not looked better.  They promise volume and YOU GET volume.  No moose, no rollers, just big, happy hair.  The BIGGER THE BETTER.  Am I right??

2.  I found that the longer I left the conditioner in, the better.  They recommend 1-3 minutes for thicker, more voluminous hair.  I left it in for four.  No joke.  It helped!

3.  It smells great (very important to me) and is very well priced.  Now let’s let the photos do the talking.

Thank you, L’Oreal!  I am so happy to meet you, added volume!lmsunnies 2

Proof is in the “after” shot.  I SLEPT ON THIS HAIR, HELLO!!  Dare I say it looks even better the next day??  Does that ever happen?  So voluminous even after a sleep and I did nothing to it the next morning!  I’m one happy mama!   Do your hair a favor and go grab these products up!
