Natural Highlights at the Beach

Lemon Do you remember going to the beach and drenching your locks with “Sun In” to achieve the perfect summer highlights?  Whatever happened to “Sun In”?  Anyways who needs Sun In when you have lemons! The secret to sun kissed highlights in light to medium brown hair is lemon juice. Take a ¼ cup of lemon juice (fresh lemons are best) and mix with your regular conditioner. Apply on your hair and bake in the sun. (Remember to always use sun protection.) Soon thereafter you will see a beautiful summer shimmer in your hair. Enjoy!

The Hills go fresh with Alicia Keyes and Dove

Have you heard about the new go fresh product line from Dove? This new line hopes to inspire young women in their 20’s with a fresh perspective – to stop pressuring themselves to achieve it all in like ten minutes – and to recognize a wider definition of success and feel beautiful about themselves. We like that. A lot!

This fragrance-driven collection comes in three invigorating scents so you can select each one to match your state of mind: Refresh (waterlilly and mint), Energize (sparking grapefruit and lemongrass), and Cool off (green tea and cucumber). I could use a little Energize right now – LOL!

Keep an eye out for Dove’s new collection on…. The Hills! Yes, Dove has teamed up with MTV to present Fresh Takes, a new micro-series, starring Alicia Keys (love her!) which follows the lives of three roommates in their mid-twenties living in New York City. Sounds perfect for The Hills, no?

Wanna see the promo?

This fab new line includes body mists, deodorants, personal wash, hand and body lotion, and of course shampoos and conditioners – yay! You can watch the mini-series, and Alicia every week during The Hills. There will be five 3-minute episodes, each one touching on a pressure point of 20-something women: beauty, career, dating, family and friends.

I love, love, LOVE The Hills. I’m totally on team Lauren….
