Get Ready With Me

We usually stay in on the weekends to catch up on errands or watch a movie, but this past Saturday Luis & I decided to hit the town for a fun date night. I normally wear something casual and comfy, but tonight I was in the mood for an LPD (Little Pink Dress). I found this dress stashed in the back of my closet and realized I hadn’t worn it since I bought it (maybe 4 years ago).

When getting ready one of the tasks I enjoy the least is drying my hair. As you can tell I have a lot of hair and it usually takes about 20 minutes to dry it all. That’s how long it takes for me to do my hair and makeup.  Over the years I’ve tried many different dryers from drugstore to designer brands but none noticeably reduced the amount of time it took to dry my hair. Recently I was given the ghd Air dryer to try and I was blown away. It takes just 5-6 minutes to dry my hair. It’s such a time saver.

My favorite part of the makeup routine is applying blush. I love Sonia Kashuk® blushes. They’re so pigmented and lasting. A little goes a long way for sure.
