Hairspray Perfection! Raves and Reviews on Aussie & NEW L'Oreal sprays and hairspray.

Welcome back Beauties!  I wanted to share with you my NEW hairspray combo I am loving and hope and pray, *fingers crossed*, this stuff is never discontinued!!

First item being mentioned is my one-and-only go-to Aussie Instant Freeze Hairspray.  This is an EXTREME HOLD spray with the caption on the bottle reading:  "Freezes your style in its tracks".  #TRUTH Ha-ha, I am a short-haired gal, and if I'm going to be using hairspray on the 'do, I want something that will basically paste my hair in place.  I don't want it moving around, blowing in the breeze...nuh-uhh - none of dat.  Maybe if I had longer hair, my taste in hairspray might be different.
The hairspray promises the following:  "This is a strong, quick hold that'll give you the chills.  Instant Freeze Hairspray Extreme Hold sets up your look fast and fixes it in place.  Brrrace yourself."  OK - a tad dramatic ;)) but YES it does set FAST and is an EXTREME HOLD!!  So, the crunchiness is a definite with this hairspray so if you don't like that, then this isn't for you.  But if you're a gal like me that wants that MASSIVELY STRONG hold, give this a try!  Plus the smell is divine too ;))
Next and NEWEST RAVED item is my L'Oreal BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray.  This is a STRONG HOLD Back Combing Finisher spray with the caption on the bottle reading:  "Instant Lift + Fullness".  Again, #TRUTH!!  I love my hair to be B-I-G and this is, dare I say, EVEN BETTER than my tried and true Schwarzkopf got2b POWDER'ful Volumizing Styling Powder.  Love that stuff, no doubt, but this L'Oreal spray is
The spray promises the following:  "Our high-performance finishing tool now at your fingertips.  Get targeted root application with out unique fan spray for instant lift and fullness and a modern back combing effect.  Strong hold boosts body on any style for a voluptuous, textured look that lasts."  FURTHER - "Advanced Formula; Fibralock Tech - boosts style endurance; a workable, holding matric that locks style strand by strand; instant lift + fullness; strong hold; back combing finisher; heat protection."  PHEW!!  After all that is said and done, and fancy wording aside, this stuff is the best thing created next to sliced bread.  It does the job, INSTANTLY and I will continue to rave and rave about this spray!!  Again, smells good too!
Now, if you're a helmet head lover like myself (HA!! I joke) but seriously if you love good volume, try the L'Oreal spray and if you love a good, strong hold from a hairspray then give this Aussie hairspray a go!!  Both can be found any drugstore, Wal-Mart, Target, Ulta, grocery store even...
Thanks for reading and until next time, take care!!

GlitterBee Feature: Freckle Fox Boutique

Welcome back Beauties! Today I am sharing information and some items from one of my FAVORITE online boutiques, Freckle Fox Boutique.  My girl, Shannon, aka Ms. Fox herself ;)) is one of the absolute sweetest Ladies I have come to know and the girl has got some fabulous glittery taste!!  Haha, really though...she does ;))

One of the items I purchased was one of the key chains - mine is the lips monogrammed key chain.  There are SO many other designs you can choose from to create your very own key chain, personalize it with your own monogram :))  I am becoming obsessed with monograms, and that's what this boutique specializes in:  GLITTERED monograms.  Did I say GLITTER, because Freckle Fox makes GLITTER monograms...ahhh, she had me at GLITTER and MONOGRAM!!  Haha ;))
Another item(s) I ordered was this zebra print set that comes with a zebra print sports bra, and a pair of zebra print running shorts, BOTH of which have the Freckle Fox one of a kind glitter monogram!  You can choose from an assortment of colors for the monogram, and clothing!
Items you can purchase range from key chains (mentioned above) to koozies, coffee mugs, to clothing!!  You can get hoodies or tshirts, shorts or even pants to add to your fabulous monogram collection!  Another new collection they are offering are for those working on their fitness, or those simply wanting to look Foxie ;)) it's their Foxie Fitness collection, and each piece is unique.
PLEASE make sure you check out this fabulous boutique and look to get your own piece of glittery goodness!!
Until next time, take care, and remember to always leave a trail of glitter.

Champagne for Breakfast!


Welcome back Beauties!  I saw this fantastic sweatshirt from Charlotte Russe on Instagram and thought it would be great to create an OOTD showcasing my own taste and style!  Being a Mom, I like fabulous pieces but throwing a casual feel with it.  I'm also a Southern Gal who loves her Keds, and these matched PERFECTLY with this sweatshirt!  In some light the sweatshirt looks more aqua blue, in other light it comes off more like a Tiffany blue, which is a blue I need in my life! 
The dark wash denim I paired with this top I found at Wal-mart, and they were under $15!  They're super comfortable and stretchy which, again, for a Mom on the go, is a PLUS!  They're more like jeggings, and I have them in 3 washes - Light wash, Dark wash, and Black.  All of which, are necessities! (in my book)
My bag is from JustFab, however it is no longer available.  If you are not a member of JustFab, try it!!  It's FREE to join, and when you sign up, you fill out a style profile which is how your options are chosen each month!  You can skip a month, if you wish, however you can also purchase at any time!  Majority of the items are $39.95, however they have more "luxury" items, which can differ in price.  You have until the 5th of each month to skip and opt out of making a purchase.  If you don't, you are charged $39.95, and you receive a credit, which you can use to choose an item at a later date!  Easy peasy!
AAAND if things couldn't get better ;)) my shoes have glittery shoe-strings!! EEE!!  Ha-ha
I hope you enjoyed this OOTD!!  Stay tuned for more outfit features!
Take care, and until next time, remember to leave a trail of glitter!
