Caffeine Overload

I have had three sodas and a caramel latte today. I am wired!!!!!

The response to this hyperactivity is of course a post of me getting ready to go get coffee with my friend Laurie.

I have naturally curly hair. When I wear it curly, I get out of the shower and wrap it up turban style in a towel. I let it dry a little and then use a leave in conditioner and product in it. My favorite curly products are from Redken. I flip my head over and dry it on low about 80% dry with a diffuser.

Do I have any curly friends out there? What are your styling tips or favorite products?

Wet and clean (no products):

Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of yourself drying your hair upside down?


Dry and volumized:

My arsenal for the day:

Degree Deodorant
Philosophy Hope in a Jar Spf 15 Moisturizer
Sunsilk Captivating Curls
got2b Guardian Angel Blow Out Lotion
Soap and Glory Girligo Moisturizing Mist
Vita Fusion Prenatal Vitamins
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil and Kabuki brush
Victorias's Secret Fall Face Palette and Lip Gloss
Michael Kors Very Hollywood Perfume
Also, do you like my shot glasses as bobby pin and jewelry holders?  Or my snowman who now has hair ties on his hat?

The end result:


  1. thats my routine too. I have wavy hair. Plus not washing it for a few days helps. haha. Really it does!

  2. Yes, I agree about not washing. I have shocked some friends in the past, but I think only curly/ wavy people can understand going days without washing it. That's why they invented shower caps, right?

  3. I have to wash my hair every day because I work out, and my head can get very greasy. Sometimes I wish I had hair like yours because I can't think of a way to make it nicely wavy because my hair is stick straight and thick.

    Thanks for the comment you left on my post about the school pressures, etc. I didn't think anyone would comment on that one, but it seems like people related to it...

  4. I have natural curl and I would wear it curly all the time, but then I had kids and for some reason my curl went crazy. I doesn't looked good curly anymore, so I must straighten it.
