My Hampton Inn & Suites Santa Monica and Beverly Center Shopcation!

I am always traveling, which can get exhausting! That's why I had so much fun on my "staycation/shopcation" at The Hampton Inn & Suites Santa Monica and Beverly Center!

I started off with a fun shopping spree at newly renovated Beverly Center! It's absolutely gorgeous!! There were so many amazing stores and new restaurants!

After all that shopping, we had an amazing lunch at Farmhouse! The restaurant is not only delicious and fresh, but so gorgeous! And the burger is one of the best I've ever had!!

And now checking into the super cute Hampton Inn & Suites in Santa Monica after a fun shopping day! How cute is this neon sign in the lobby?! I'll take sunshine too!

After relaxing in the hotel for a bit, I walked over to one of my favorite places in LA, The Santa Monica Pier! I love how close the Hampton Inn & Suites is to the Santa Monica Pier and Third Street Promenade! Literally just a 10 minute walk or so! So fun and so convenient!

So refreshed after a comfortable sleep and fun staycation/shopcation! I loved the complimentary breakfast in the morning and my favorite was the waffle maker!!!!! But, before check out I had to go up to the gorgeous pool deck for a dip in the pool and to lay out for a bit! I had the best time!! Check out all of the great deals that can be had at these SoCal Hilton hotels here!

My Pantene Pro-V 14-Day Challenge!

I have been using Pantene Pro-V since I was a teenager, and I love that they have always focused on healthy beautiful hair to support the boldness of women! It’s been so much fun to take part in and see the results of the Pantene 14 Day Challenge! I have been coloring my hair since I was 15 years old, which has really taken a toll on my hair. Because of that, the Pantene Repair & Protect Collection Shampoo and Conditionerwere the perfect products for me to try during the challenge! I also loved using the Ultimate 10 BB Crème on my hair after styling for a silky, smooth finish! Follow along with my journey below!

Day 1:

I was so excited to try out the Pantene Repair & Protect Shampoo and Conditioner because my hair was so ready to be repaired from all of the coloring and hot styling tools I use on it! Honestly, I could feel the difference immediately, which makes sense – this collection promises to repair six months of damage in just one use! It has concentrated moisturizers and conditioners which reduce hair friction and tangles (who else’s hair gets crazy tangled all the time!?) while smoothing the hair, resulting in visible reduction of damage!

After taking part in the challenge, I have some pro tips for you! When shampooing, focus on the scalp and roots, where the most build up of scalp oils, dirt and product residue come from. When you are conditioning the hair, you should make sure to condition the full length of your hair. You may have been told (like I was!) that you should condition just the tips of your hair, and that is not the case! Your hair needs conditioner wherever it is exposed to heat-styling, color, sun and anything else that might damage it! Also, make sure not to over-rinse the hair! It shouldn’t take more then 30 seconds to rinse out the conditioner so make sure to run your fingers through the hair!

Day 7:

This was my hair at day 7! My color has been enhanced with more shine and vibrancy, and I can feel the difference even more! The Pantene Repair & Protect Collection’s Shampoo and Conditioner also protects the hair between washes by smoothing the hair cuticle and reinforcing your hair’s outer layer.

Day 14:

Yay! It’s the last day of the challenge and I am seeing so much less breakage, less flyaways, and my hair just feels stronger. It used to be super stiff and brittle because of how damaged it was, but now it flows and feels so silky. I am so happy with the results!!!!!!!!!

It might sound silly to some, but all of the women in my life feel this way – a bad hair day can really ruin your entire day, and a great hair day will do the opposite! Only 1 in 10 women experience a great hair day regularly, and Pantene wants to change that!! When I know my hair looks healthy and amazing, I feel amazing!

Are you ready to take the Pantene 14 Day Challenge!? You won’t regret it!!!

Tatcha Holiday Gift Sets!

I'm so excited to be partnering with Tatcha for the holiday season! I have been a huge fan of their products for years, and am obsessed with their famous Rice Polish enzyme powder face wash!  I love the gift sets they have come out with this holiday season, which will be my go-to stocking stuffer.  The gift set contains all of my favorite Tatcha essentials, and is the perfect introduction to this amazing skincare brand for anyone who hasn't tried their products yet!

Also, not only are Tatcha's products amazing- how beautiful are they?!

My favorite gift sets are below!...

The Pure Skincare Delights Gift Set, which is the four-step ritual for normal-to-dry skin that nourishes and hydrates for youthful radiance! These essentials are the heart of the Tatcha collection! The Rice Polish is what started it all for me!

The Blushing Lips Duo Gift Set, that has the Kissu Lip Mask with the new, limited edition Peony Blossom Silk Lipstick (I am OBSESSED with this color!) to impart the appearance of healthier, plumper lips and a flattering wash of youthful color! The Kissu Lip Mask is magical for those of you that suffer from dry lips like me!

The Purifying & Pore Perfecting Trio Gift Set, which are the three essentials for a pure and poreless complexion from morning to evening! It's powered by natural Japanese ingredients that purify and hydrate skin while reducing the appearance of pores. My absolute favorite is the Water Cream, its life-changing!!

The Japanese Blossoms Mini Silk Lipstick Trio Gift Set, which is a collector’s set of three hand-crafted lipsticks inspired by their love of Kyoto. Made from pure silk extracts to nourish lips and 23-karat gold for a touch of glamour!! They are also the perfect size to run around town with! I love all the shades, but my favorite is the BeautyBerry!

Happy Shopping!
