Addicted to Kristin Ess


I'M ALL FOR KRISTIN ESS!

So, this past Winter, I gave out Kristin Ess travel-sized hair products to like every lady on my list. For Christmas, and Christmas only, Target distributed Kristin Ess mini's and I was obsessed. ALL my ladies who received the mini's got their first intro to Kristin Ess and they LOVED it.

Fast forward and today, Kristin Ess has become a staple in my bathroom. I was already using her purple shamps and condish, the leave-in conditioner spray and the deep-conditioning hair mask when I decided to give the rose-gold, wash-in-tint a try.....OBSESSED.

PINK HAIR DON'T CARE!


HOW FREAKING FABULOUS IS PINK HAIR?!

Easy-peasy pink...you wash it in and it washes right out. For me, it only took one wash and it was practically all out. By the second wash, it was like it never happened. How fun is that for a temporary change?

First, I washed my hair w/ regular old shampoo. THEN, I used an Aquis hair towel to soak up as much water out of my hair as possible. Once I got as much water soaked up as possible, I sprayed in the rose-gold tint. Sprayed it allllll over, sections, underneath, up top...SPRAY, SPRAY, SPRAY! 

This is really easy to do people...don't think you need a mirror and precise sprays. I just angled the shower head the opposite direction while I saturated my hair with the tint. And don't worry, I have an ALL-WHITE tile shower and the rose-gold tint got everywhere and washed right off. No biggie.

Spray as much or as little as you want. I let it soak in for a couple minutes and then proceeded to rinse, add conditioner, rinse again and donezo!


SHOP KRISTIN ESS PRODUCTS!

Because I'm addicted I'm obviously sharing the links to ALL Kristin Ess hair products that I currently use. The best part? They're all at Target which means they're ALL affordable. As if there weren't enough reasons to heart Tarjay...Kristin Ess is the bomb-diggity baby!

It's NEW. It's TRENDY. It's AFFORDABLE. It's Macy's BACKSTAGE!


Welcome to the Macy's Backstage experience! And I am definitely here for the roll-out of this awesome concept. Macy's sees you. Macy's hears you. And now they are incorporating your needs and wants via the Backstage concept...Slowly though...not EVERY Macy's has the Backstage section just yet. So before you go, find out which of your local stores is Backstage equipped. 

So, WHAT is this Macy's Backstage?? Does anyone remember Loehmann's? Good 'ol Loehmann's had a section in the back of their stores called "The Backroom". And everything in the "Backroom" was exquisite and expensive......well, Macy's backroom is called "Backstage" and the best part is everything is AFFORDABLE. It's like the the "Backroom" but instead of everything being out of your price-range, everything in Macy's Backstage is priced to walk out the door honey.


The nice crew over at the Newpark Mall Macy's graciously invited me last week to tour and shop the premier of the new Macy's Backstage. So, for my local NorCal babes looking to shop this new concept, head out to Newark because the Newpark Mall Macy's is one of the only West coast stores to premier the Backstage experience. 

So, they invited me to shop and SHOP I did. They gave me $200 and said let's see what she can do with that! Ha! I did that gift card justice. Literally shopped till I dropped. If you watched my insta-stories that day you know I definitely took my time and canvassed every inch Backstage...I didn't want to miss a beat! And even now as I sit here typing I'm planning my next rendezvous Backstage...because there is so much product. And once something is gone, they will not be getting it back. The idea Backstage is to not only keep things in-trend and affordable, but FRESH and NEW! So they will constantly be bringing in new things to keep us coming back. I like it.


Obvi I definitely bought this denim top. And it was priced at $24.99!!! I tried on a lot and ended up with some great pieces for Spring/Summer. AND I got stuff for the house too. Keep in mind, as I show you everything I got, that it ALL came home with me for $200...


HAWAIIAN TROPIC DRESS/COVER-UP $24.99

BOTH SWIMSUITS FOR $50

JUICY COUTURE PILL CASE $6.99 (AND I ACTUALLY NEEDED THIS! LOL)

CACTUS DECOR BECAUSE DUH...LOL...$7.99

CUUUUTE CACTUS COFFEE CUP $4.99
LIVING ROOM RUG [5x8] $79


I meeeean, is this a HAUL or is this a HAAAAAUUUULLL?! Exact purchase came to 8 items for $209.92 (pre-tax) with Cali tax (ewww) my total came to $231.48. Taxes or not, I think it's safe to say I did GOOOOOOOD honey. Yassssss...

SO...let's have some fun! Shopping & Saving is more fun when you're shopping with a gift card you WON! Below you'll find a video re-capping my Macy's Backstage experience where I shopped quite literally till I dropped AND a $100 Macy's Gift Card Giveaway!!

Please NOTE: The Giveaway is open to USA entries only. The gift card will be good to use in any Macy's location and on Macy's website. But spending it at Macy's Backstage will definitely give you the most bang for your buck...juuuus sayin'.

...just a typical Tuesday



...my Tuesday. From waking up around 4ish and laying in bed, lazily checking our security cameras for anything suspicious to my riveting trip to Safeway! And the excitement from me checking my emails and doing face masks is almost too much to bare.

Sarcasm aside, this is just a fun & fast trip through a somewhat average Tuesday.

Unboxing my 1st ever FabFitFun Box!




I thought about it and I thought about it and finally I think one of the girls from Vanderpump Rules got me feelin like I needed to sign up for FabFitFun. Leave it to Instagram to hand out heavy doses of fomo.

So when you sign up in between seasons you get a box filled with the editors faves called the Editor's Box. It's pretty sweet too. The contents totaled up to a retail value of somewhere between $320-$356.00. I was impressed. GREAT quality products and brands. And mainly I was excited to try out products from brands I'd heard of but hadn't experienced yet. 

My faves from this box? The Way of Will muscle soak bath salts are insane. And I say that with the best connotations. The rose-gold, bar-chain, drop earrings I selected by Summer & Rose are so perfectly simple and chic. They make me feel cool. Winner for sure. I haven't used the body buffer by Spongelle yet but DAAAAAMN. The Bulgarian-rose scent emanating from it has me practically salivating. It smells DIVINE. Very excited about the fun gym bag from Private Party and last but not least on my faves list, the BB Dakota reversible poncho is a nice touch. It's soft and perfect for our ever-ridiculous weather here in Cali. 80-degree days drop to 40-degree nights, so this poncho is a no-brainer. 

Needless to say, for my 1st box I'm thrilled. Watch the video below as I go through the box and show you each product as I open them and check them out. Who else loves FabFitFun?? Tell me what you think in the comments! Are you signing up?
