Tried & Tested

after testing many hair products through the years- we find ourselves always coming back to kerastase products. we all go to salon buzz for our hair cuts and treatments... and they use kerastase products as well. it's just one of those (many) things that we let ourselves justify spending a wee bit more on since they really work (real hair magic happens when you mix some of these together too)! have you tried them? here are some of our favorites. in this case salon buzz told you so...#sbtys-

you can mix the exilir (above) with the lait vital pre blow dry and put it on your ends while your hair is still wet... helps tremendously with a fab blow out!
s's go to for color treated hair. must use both the shampoo and conditioner!

c has curly hair and this masque helps to the extreme to put moisture back into the hair to help with dryness and frizz.

Add An Avocado

who doesn't like avocado? we're not sure we trust people who don't like avocados (kidding, sorta). but a couple weeks ago we were intro'd to this new product by kiehls. it's been such a customer hit that it's been tough for them to keep it on their shelves. luckily c snagged a pot of it last week. we all got the chance to try it this past weekend when we had a sleep over for mother's day. we've gotta tell you, this is the best eye cream we have found yet! it's non-greasy and super moisturizing. it's difficult to put it into words, but it feels like you are putting a concentrated water under and around your eyes. it's creamy to touch, but then turns into almost like a liquid when you are smearing it on.

trust us and add an avocado!

Three For Mother's Day Gifts

mother's day is next weekend, and what better time to treat your mom to something she wouldn't normally do for herself? whether it be a unique gift, a bouquet of her favorite flowers or something you can do together... the important part is letting her know how much you appreciate her. here are a few gifts we've been thinking about...

c's pick - winifred grace necklaces

we've blogged about wg's jewelry before, but i am quite in l.o.v.e. with her designs. perfect personalized gift for your momma!

s's pick - flywheel chicago
the skinny buddha has always inspired us to stay fit and workout,
no better gift for mom than a gc to flywheel, spin it out together this mother's day! :)

k's pick - bliss chicago
the skinny buddha introduced us to bliss a few years ago, which immediately
became one of our favorite escapes for a little r&r. nothing better than their triple oxygen facial followed by a massage and mani/pedi! perfect gift for mother's day.
