This post was sponsored by Revlon Hair Tools as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

One of the number one questions I get asked all the time is how I curl my hair. Today is your lucky day because I’m sharing all of my secrets, well…not all of them, just my hair secrets ;)

A little background:

The team at Revlon Hair Tools reached out to me & introduced me to their Perfect Heat Long Lasting Curls curling irons. I was already familiar with the brand (DUH, I LOVE REVLON HAIR TOOLS) and was super excited to try out their curling iron for myself! I have been using the 1” curling iron for two months now, and I’ve been absolutely loving it. I used to own three curling wands and two curling irons and several other hot tools and now I can honestly say I just use this one! It is such a great price point as well, and I found it at my local Walmart!

Now, are you ready? Let’s get started!

STEP 1: The first step is to prep your hair. I like to put some styling cream/heat protectant on my wet hair, brush it and apply a little bit of hair oil to tame the frizziness. I use the Revlon XL Paddle Brush to help tame and detangle my wet hair, this helps it to dry more easily as well! I let my hair air dry, because my hair looks best when I use the least amount of heat on it! Once your hair is dry, start by sectioning it off. I only separate my hair in 2-3 sections. This helps the waves to look more loose, and more natural!

STEP 2: In order to get effortless waves, you need to do 3 things: 1. Curl your hair away from your face. 2. Lay your hair flat against the curling iron. 3. Don’t curl the last 1-2 inches of your hair.

STEP 3: Once you lay your hair flat against the barrel, hold it there for about 10-15 seconds.

STEP 4: Once your finished curling your hair, DON’T TOUCH THE CURLS! Let your hair cool down! Once it is cool. spray some touchable volume spray/hairspray, and use your fingers (NOT A BRUSH) to loosen up and release some of the curls.

Thats it! Easy Peasy!

OMG ITS 2019!!!!!!!! I seriously cannot believe how fast the past year has gone by, and I’m still working on the goals I made in 2018....anyone else?

My goals for this year are pretty simple. I want to be more in control of my life, and simplify EVERYTHING. I want less things & more memories & moments made with my kids. I want to spend less money, and be more mindful when it comes to groceries & purchases. I also want to get into the best shape EVER, and work on more targeted exercises that break out of my typical routine. Here is my plan for all of that, and a little insight to what my year will look like.


LESS CLUTTER-
I am a total minimalist. Things don’t bring me happiness, and honestly I get more stressed when I have a house full of junk. After Christmas I cleaned through the girls’ toys & clothing, and I plan on getting everything I saved organized better! I also want to have NO JUNK DRAWERS in my home, and instead have a place for everything. I hate clutter & want to reallllllly focus on spending money on things that are absolutely necessary, and less on things that bring temporary happiness...(aka decorative pillows, rugs, random home things lol)


FAMILY TIME-
I want to spend more time doing fun & adventurous things with my kids and Colten. I really want to break free from routine more & get out to explore the beautiful state we live in. It can be hard traveling even a few hours in the car with kids, but I want to do it anyway! It’s good to get out of our comfort zone every once & a while. 


ORGANIZED WITH MY BLOG-
I am not the most organized with my blog, because I am a FULL TIME mama & this blog is a FULL TIME job. I want this year to be about organization & doing more projects that test the limits of what I am used to. I really want to start a YouTube Vlog & jump into promoting my blog/facebook/twitter as much as I do with my IG. :) 


HOUSE RENO-
Since buying a home, there have been so many projects that I’ve been wanting to do to our house. We started on our guest bathroom months ago, and it still hasn’t finished. I really want to be better about finishing one project before starting another LOL. I am queen of having ten projects at one time, and I can’t live like that anymore! So when’s our bathroom is finished I’ll be working on getting new floors throughout our whole house! And then hopefully tackling getting my office completed!

BABIES-
I don’t have any plans or desire to get pregnant this year. I plan on nursing Sorel for a few more months, and getting my body back to myself...before I even think about pregnancy! If I do get pregnant, it’ll probably be the very end of the year or next. But who knows....haha


GROCERY SHOPPING-
I am a weirdo that loves to grocery shop, but I am not mindful with my purchases & often waste a lot of the food that I buy! Starting this month I am budgeting better for groceries & I plan on only going to the store 2-3 times a month!!! I want the food we buy to get used, and this way I spend less money too! Win win! Although I will miss my grocery store runs...especially at the stores with Starbucks inside! ;) I plan on making a big Costco run once a month, and 1-2 grocery store runs minimum!


BEAUTY & STYLE-
I initially started this blog because of my blog and passion for clothing and beauty products. But of course it has changed as I have added kiddos to the mix. I honestly love sharing about everyday mom moments & baby/kid products...but I want to incorporate more fashion & beauty posts as well! So stay tuned for more of that, and possibly some Youtube videos to go along with it!


BACKYARD-
I want to do a lot of yard work this Spring & Summer to make our backyard a better more functional and fun place for the kids! I want to plant a garden/flowers, and get a play set for the girls! I love spending time outside, and want to have a space that will be perfect for spending outdoor time in—all Summer long!


TRAVEL-
I have some fun travel plans this year and can not wait to share more with you guys!!!!! Traveling with my family is when I am most in my element! I plan on visiting Europe for my FIRST TIME this year too!!! I want to travel more fun places in beautiful Washington, and even driving just 2 hours south to explore Portland!

It’s ten days before Christmas Eve....The trees are twinkling. Christmas music is playing. The house smells like gingerbread & sugar cookies. The Christmas pajamas are ordered

and...I have a confession.

 

 

I am not done shopping at all!

Truth be told... I have hardly even started shopping. If you’re anything like me, and still have a list people you still need to buy for, and holiday parties you need to bring gifts to....I’ll tell you my favorite place to go for last minute gifts! SEPHORA inside JCPENNEY!


I love doing my holiday shopping all in one place! I can get all the other holiday items I need at JCPenney, after stopping in at my favorite store....Sephora inside JCPenney.


I stopped in there the other day, and found some amazing gifts for some people on my Christmas list. They are stocked with amazing gift sets, holiday palettes, and everything beauty & hair!


Some of the items I picked up include: the new Kat Von D - Lolita Eyeshadow Palette (available exclusively in-store), the Silver Mask from Sephora Collection, the Two Lil Mattemoiselles set from Fenty Beauty By Rihanna , and a bunch of other amazing gift sets!!!

 

I can truly find products for anyone on my list, at Sephora inside JCPenney. They have such a wide variety of products, and the latest in beauty and skincare. Head to your local Sephora inside JCPenney to find some awesome gifts for your family + friends, and a little something special for yourself too! You deserve it!

 

Now that I visited my local Sephora inside JCPenney, and got some help from the knowledgeable staff, I can relax while cuddling my babies, and wrapping our gifts at home!!!
