EOTD - Pretty Browns :)

I love the look of brown/shimmer shades on the eyes!  Brown shades are great because you can create a neutral look for brown eyes, but with the shimmer brown shades, its' kicked up a notch!  

Here is an eye look I did that is a great look for a girls night, weekend brunch or dinner with the family.  Check it out below:

TRESemme - Heat Tamer Spray - Review

Now I have always struggled with my hair being pin straight ( I know, cue the violins), but as it is true in life, you always want what you don't have.  So, growing up, I wanted curly hair and was never quite able to figure out what to do with my boring straight hair or achieve curly hair that would last and look shiny and healthy.

Thankfully, I was finally able to make peace with the fact that I have super straight hair and now, along with my flat iron, I use the following product to keep it looking healthy and shiny which is TRESemme - Heat Tamer Spray!

Whether I want it curled or super sleek straight, this protective spray keeps my hair looking and feeling great!  I find I don't need to use additional hair serums or products thereafter, as this product does such a good job.

  • Controls Frizz
  • Adds Shine
  • Allows for a beautiful finish to curled or flat ironed hair
  • Protects your hair from damage

  • The nozzle/handle feels a bit awkward
  • Hope it will come in a larger size

If you use a blow dryer, a flat iron, a curling iron or hot rollers, this product should be a MUST in your personal hair kit.

Let me know if you have tried it and how it works for you!
