We’re getting pretty flooded with emails about your upcoming holiday wish lists. We thought we’d help out by making a long list with some of our personal favorites. We’ve also saved you the time of hunting by including the links. Hopefully this will come in very handy for this week of heavy shopping! Or perhaps you should just accidentally leave this list lying around for a particular someone to stumble upon… xo

HEAVY METAL

TREND HUNTING: We’ve always loved hardware detail on clothing, but what do we think about showing your pretty pins on purpose? It’s kind of cool we think. Would you be excited to see this become a trend?

FACEBOOK GIVEAWAY

In the spirit of yesterday’s bangs post, I’ve decided to do a little beauty giveaway with some of my favorites. I’m passing out 5 of these “Big Bang” bags to randomly selected people who like this post on our FACEBOOK PAGE. Inside you will find the essentials for any type of bangs:

  • Blotting papers- absorbs the oils that get into your bangs and cause unwanted separation.
  • Japanese bobby pins in your color- these are the strongest bobby pins you’ll ever use! They’re my favorite and they never slip!
  • My favorite teal comb- one swipe with the fine side of this comb while on the go, and your bangs are perfection!
  • Paddle clips- holds your bangs out of your face while you do your makeup, but won’t leave a crease!
  • Ponytail holders- because bangs look really good with a ballerina bun, fun bun or ponytail.
  • Travel size dry shampoo- a mandatory purse product for anyone with bangs. Remember the story on dry shampoo?

Good luck!!

Xx Kristin

Ladies and gentleladies… not all bobby pins are the same. This weekend, go through your stash. Test what you’ve got. If you pull them apart gently and they stay apart, you need new bobby pins. They should be strong enough to stay closed. If  they’re not, you’ll have a harder time getting your updo to stay! The stronger they are, the less you’ll need. This is a little tip that goes a long way.

Have a great weekend!
