This was such a cute idea from community contributor (and brand new blogger) GiGi. She sent us her list of beauty resolutions, which is brilliant considering New Years Eve is quickly approaching. Check them out!

What’s a girl to do with a banged up table? Here’s my new favorite answer. We saw this gorgeous vanity by famed interior designer Ryan Korban and it made us swoon!

Hello pretty people! We’re trying out a new feature on TBD. It’s called “Inspiration Station”. Every now and then, we’ll compile a video inspiration board for you with videos that we think are fun and inspiring in the world of beauty. We love when our beauty besties share these things with us and we think you lovelies might too. Please let us know your thoughts via comments. And maybe even request certain tutorials from a particular look in a video!

A lot of you ladies have been writing in and asking what is the best way to communicate with your stylist about what you would like done with your hair.  This is especially important if you are making a drastic change.  We suggest that you always bring at least one photo in with you because pictures are a universal language. Want to go shorter? Change up your color? Try out bangs? Then get online and print out some photos or start flipping through magazines.  When your hair stylist has only “sort of reddish – brownish, but not too dark. Ya know?” to go off of then things can easily get lost in translation.  So reduce confusion on your next visit to the salon and bring along a visual.
