Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

I may have not washed my hair volume 2

 Yep. She’s at it again. Sleeping late just sounded so much better to me this morning. 
Instead of the braid, I just left hair down in front and pinned back for a little side swept bang. Go forth, and side bang it girls. 
In other news, turns out I got in trouble with Carol’s husband for posting an unflattering pic of Lucy the Diva yesterday.  See convo below. 
LMAO. And that is why I love Carol. and Kevin.
Lastly, big sis left this little surprise for me on her vanity. Note said “have a great weekend, I love you!”

Now how sweet and thoughtful was that?? I had mentioned to her that I loved this perfume. Made my day 🙂
My brain is fried. 😉 to happy hour I go… who wants to go with?!

    love your hair, looking fab as always! Had such a crappy day, I always look forward to reading your blog 🙂

  2. Candace says:

    When I see how awesome your hair looks every day it makes me sad that I am hair retarded!

    Also happy hour? I'm in. As long as you take my phone from me when I begin tweeting:)

  3. Raven says:

    Big sis seems pretty freakin awesome.

    and it UNCANNY how much you look LIKE just Carrie in the second picture of you on here. I bet NO ONE would guess it wasn't her if they were shown that pic. Beautiful!

  4. Hannah says:

    You are too cute! You know I always get a good laugh checking out your blog. Um, my question is how does your hair not get greasy? All of my hair would be ok to go a few days without washing, but the part that comes across my forehead gets gross. Please tell me your secret. XO

  5. Lindsey says:

    My hair is in a very similar fashion. I tried to text it to you this morning but my phone failed to send it and said the file was too large. Probably best you didn't see my greasy hair anyway. Haven't washed in a few days myself. As you know, I had to spray it with dry shampoo mid-afternoon even after spraying it in the car on the way to work. I am the definition of grace and class ladies and gents.

    I see the coral anddddd now I have to go restock my perfume this weekend so I can get the wine cooler before all the other boozebags scoop it up and Ulta's out of it.

    I'm off to happy hour in t minus 30 minutes. Buzzed texting to commence shortly.


    oh p.s. ask Caroline about the email she sent me! I totally thought I offended her about the haggard/scraggly cat comment because i thought that was some legit rabid stray cat trying to attack you outside your home. WHOOPSIES. Lucy really is presh!

  6. Heather says:

    Okay, I need to get a three way mirror and practice doing my hair!

  7. I WISH I could be this creative with my hair on non-wash days…It normally just looks like…it hasn't been washed.

  8. Holly says:

    Your hair is gorgeous! I wish I had hair like yours!

    Happy Friday 🙂

  9. Mighty Burns says:

    Happy hour sounds so nice right now! EEEck and it is only 2:50pm here lol yowzah.
    Your hair is adorable even when you sleep in and think your taking the easy way out.. girlfriend if you could see my hair when I dont do it, and put it in a bun thing at work.. youd freak trust me lol. not cute.

  10. Darling Diva says:

  11. Jenn says:

  12. Lex C. says:

    Wow I wish I could just whip up my hair like that. It looks great!


  14. Love it! Looks great! For the record, I only wash my hair about 3 times a week and rely heavily on dry shampoo! It's not good for your hair to wash it too often… it dries it out.

  15. Your hair is always gorgeous! I have to wash my hair daily, otherwise it looks like a hot mess. I am jealous of everyone who can wash less!

  16. Marjorie says:

    New follower! I tried your last updo and it turned out great. Thanks for sharing your tips!

  17. Emily says:

    What a sweet sis! Cute buns are the best! I love using dry shampoo for second day hair. adds volume when you wear it down and removes some of the grease.

  18. Tickled Pink says:

    I seriously don't know how you do it- you look fantastic even with dirty hair! And your sister sounds amazing… lucky girl! 🙂

  19. Since I have been working for 13 hours….I DO! I need happy hour!

  20. melissa says:

    My hair and makeup never look as good as yours does on a sleep in late day! I'm green with envy sister. 🙂 have a great weekend pretty girl!

  21. Katy says:

    Love that perfume, that was really sweet of her!

  22. Sophie P says:

    Your hair looks gorgeous
    Miss Loulou. I swear by dry hair shampoo- the lie in is totally worth it. Next time I go out I am doing my hair a la Loulou stylee xxx

  23. Kendra says:

    Your hair looks absolutely fabulous, looks freshly did!!

  24. Delaney says:

    your hair looks really great! I am going to have to try that 🙂

  25. Gina says:

    Waaahhh…why doesn't my straight fine hair ever look like yours? :*(

  26. Heather says:

    Love your hair! Picked up the TresTwo yesterday and I get it! I LOVE IT! Thanks!

    P.S. I also have that Juicy perfume and it's one of my faves!

  27. French Lover says:

    I love your hair like that ! You look so cute !! I have very long hair and only wash it every other day to avoid damaging it too much. It works well for me and it never looks dirty ! In a pinch, dry shampoo is fab, too. I use the Klorane one, although I don't know if it's available in the US..

    Bisous !

  28. Veronika says:

    i am SO jealous of your hair and wish I had the confidence to wear mine like that! it looks beautiful 🙂

  29. Katie says:

    Love the hair chicky!!!! I have the perfume too and I lurveee it. especially the cute bottle and pink bow on it 🙂

  30. JAJ says:

    I love your hair style and totally agree with the "I want so sleep later, so I will just wear my hair up" feeling…I do the same thing like three days a week. Bad? Yes. Do I care? No.
    I have to ask, what eye shadow are you wearing this day? I love, love, love it!

  31. shay says:

  32. Kori Donahue says:
