The Hair Color Trend I’m Seriously On Board With

karlie-kloss-babylights

When it comes to natural-looking hair color trends, first there was Ombre and then Sombre (subtle Ombre) and now it’s all about babylights. Babylights (as seen most recently on model Karlie Kloss) are very finely painted highlights that result in a stunning and super natural-looking finish.

The Hottest Shades for Fall

In sunny SoCal, the changing of seasons (or lack thereof) doesn’t mean we have to stash our sunglasses. We should, however, think about swapping the ones we’ve been wearing all summer for a pair of shades that are a little more fall wardrobe-friendly.

Same goes for our lipstick shades. It’s time to retire the poppy bright oranges and pinks for the fabulous hues we saw all over the runways — berries, reds, nudes and sepia tones.

Here I’ve paired up the newest sunnies from Warby Parker (what did we do before Warby Parker, BTW?!) with the trendy fall lipsticks that perfectly complement them. Which lipstick/sunglass paring will you choose? My fave is definitely the rose-hued sunglasses paired with sepia-toned lips.

In Honor of National Eczema Awareness Month: My Family’s Go-To Eczema Products

eczema-productsDid you know October is National Eczema Awareness Month? Yeah, didn’t think so. I didn’t either until a few days ago. It really gets lost in the hoopla surrounding Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Halloween and Oktoberfest. In my house though, eczema is always top of mind. My son has it (so does one of my sisters), and we’ve been trying to figure out a miracle combo to tame his red, itchy, sometimes cracked and bleeding skin since the day he was born. I thought I’d share what’s worked for us in honor of Eczema Awareness Month. I can’t say it’s eliminated the issue completely, but we’ve got it so much more under control.

Here’s what’s worked: Continue reading
