It’s Still Winter

Monday January 27, 2014 comments   

I’ve started craving a little more color in my wardrobe and went shopping for pastels this weekend. A challenge right now as every store is trying to get rid of their thick wool and black pants which is beyond tempting. So much so that I bought a new pair of black slacks for work. But I also got a light grey sweater (light grey it counts!) and a pastel blue blazer similar to my old mint colored blazer. Though it’s surprising I’m thinking about spring when it’s still below freezing most days and snowing constantly.

I got a few Elence 2001 products recently including this above hair mask. This line of hair products is all about a healthy scalp and breaks their line down by hair needs (such as volume.) This mask smells really good and fruity. It doesn’t weigh my hair down as much as Essential’s does but I want to try it a few more times before I decide if I like it or not. :)

Also I was looking at Artifact Uprising earlier and felt really determined to put together a 2013 book! But like many past attempts at creating these online photobooks I wonder if it would just peter out. Currently I only seem to accomplish putting together old-fashioned style photo albums with printed photos and album sleeves. And then I’m also like, “is this something I want to haul around with me if I move?” I don’t know. Sometimes I feel I’m the only person who could ever talk themselves out of documenting wonderful memories!

Liese Hair Styling

Liese products

Tried out two of the 3 Liese products I received courtesy of Yesstyle. One for an airy style and the other for permed styles. Both are used on dry hair as “fixes!”

Liese products

Liese Airy Style Blow-Dry Water

Gives an airy volume without greasy texture
Easy to use
Dries quickly with hairdryer

Does add a slight hairspray texture

I really liked the Airy Style Blow-Dry Water spray. It does exactly what it says. The texture it leaves behind isn’t too bad. It’s similar to a hair spray texture but with more give. I would recommend this for anyone with thin flat hair like mine

Liese Wave Style Defining Foam

Easy to apply
Fast drying
Weightless texture

Best for permed hair

The perm I got in the summer is about 99% washed out however I found this product to be pretty useful in adding waves. I applied a bit of the Wave Style Defining foam to my un-styled but dry hair. I then put it up in a ponytail bun (where you create a sort of bun from only pulling your hair halfway through the tie) and I took it out about an hour later when I got to work and had these great waves that lasted all day! Usually when I do this the waves fall out throughout the day but this product added a little extra hold to them.
