Ride The Wave 

Texturized hair will never go out of style. Add a little bounce and effortless looking glam to your day by giving yourself loose beach waves. 

 
 Some of our favorite celebs: Ciara, Beyoncé, and Khloe Kardashian are known for their tousled locks. Who knew such minimal work could look so darn hot?! 

 

Whether you’re really going to the beach or you just want to give off beach vibes I have the perfect product for you! Beach Babe texturizing sea salt spray from the Not Your Mother’s product line.  

   

Infused with Dead Sea salt & sea kelp which holds the hair in place, a few sprays and you’re ready to go. For maximum results, I’d recommend using this product on CLEAN, DAMP hair oppose to dry hair. Salt can absorb the moisture out of things and sea salt on the hair is no different. (After all, we’re going for loose volumous beach waves here not hair that feels like a hay stack.) With Beach Babe a little goes along way. Lightly mist a couple inches away from hair, begin from the ends upward NOT spraying directly at the scalp. 

 
 Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray along with the entire Not Your Mother’s product line can be found at Ulta Beauty stores. Want to hear something awesome… This product retails for under $10.00! Talk about a beauty steal! Get your hands on Beach Babe and you too can ride the gorgeous hair wave! Surfs up 🏄🏾

5 Things I Learned From A Girl Boss💄🎨

   
1. Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you. Ask them for advice. 

2. Fortune favors the bold who get sh*t done.

3. When you believe in yourself other people will believe in you too! 

4. If YOU believe what you’re doing will have positive results– it will. Even if it’s not immediately obvious.

5. You can’t act like you’ve arrived when you’re only just receiving the invitation. 


 – Ms. Sophia Amuroso, Founder & Chief of Nasty Gal and author of #Girlboss.  

   I had the opportunity to meet with this beauty last night. Legit an entrepreneur icon in the fashion industry. Raking in a networth of $250 million dollars by age 31 which happened in just a couple short years. ANYTHING is possible when you work hard and create your own path! 

   
   There is no way I’ll forget about the makeup! Last year Nasty Gal teamed up with MAC and released 3 limited addition lip colors. These lipcolors can now only be purchased on Amazon or Ebay and go for about $50.00USD per lipstick. The shade “Runner” is the perfect shade for fall and is a great addition to any makeup kit if you can get your hands on it!
