Post image for 4 Ways To Beat Hard Water Hair

UPDATE: This post originally ran August 1, 2012, but we wanted to share these helpful tips with you again! As the weather gets colder and drier, you may notice your hair drying out along with it, so make sure you follow these tips if you’re a victim of hard water hair!

When I first moved to Philadelphia, I anticipated a lot of things. I was ready to start a completely new life; to start my first “real” job; to move into an apartment on my own; to make an entirely new group of friends. But there was one thing for which I wasn’t prepared:  hard water.Read More

Really good ideas. I would also add cleansers such as soapnut (reetha) and shikakai work really well in hard water.

Post image for What’s On My Beauty Shelf?

A girl loves to have a beauty shelf in her bathroom, a little place where she keeps things that she likes to pamper herself with. I’ve always liked the simple things when it comes to beauty.  I’m a little scared of makeup and have never been all that good at applying it either. Read More

mason jars (i purchased a bunch at Walmart.. SHHh.. hate shopping there!) make perfect spot to hold q-tips, odds and ends, hair ties & bracelets! I also love mixing them in with old antique bottles and perfume bottles with a single little flower! OoOO and finding them washed up ashore along the bay is always a treasure. thanks for the cool post FP

I swear by Lush tea tree water toner. I live in Florida and have oily skin, and this stuff saves my life. Also, as goofy as it may sound, I only recently discovered the magical powers of tinted moisturizer. The only makeup I use is Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, nars the multiple on my eyes and cheeks, and mascara. I thank the lovely girls on downton abbey for inspiring my makeup-lite look!

Post image for Pastel Shades And Pretty Braids

Light hair decorated in pastel tones is a look we love, softly twisted into sweet braids. The colors are subtle and dreamlike – My Little Pony comes to mind. We’re huge fans of colored hair here at Free People, whether its dip dye, streaks or full color. So when we saw a lot of inspiration tears showing pastel-colored hair twisted into braids, we fell more in love.Read More

love all of the fall colors from Essie. We will be wearing the oxblood color and dark greens and blue. We've also been wearing a lot of matte colors with glam details like our shattered glass mani below:
Olivia -Sep 24, 2012, 12:42AM
I have "miss fancy pants" by Essie and I adore it! The color is neutral but not boring. It suites my personality which probably explains why I have it on so frequently! Loving dark & seductive for fall.

Post image for Fall’s Most Essential Lip Color

UPDATE: This previously ran on August the 14th, as we’re now shopping for Fall we wanted to bring it back to inspire you and your Fall wardrobe

The colour for fall for is deep and romantic and is perfect for your lips. The signature red lipstick we usually opt for takes a romantic and mysterious turn. Make your fall look more dramatic this season with a colour that’s not too far from a deep red bottle of wine with a plum tinge.  Read More
