beauty obsession: invisibobble

screenshot153

I’m super particular about the products and accessories that I put in my hair now that I’ve gone blonde. I need to be very careful not to cause any additional breakage or damage. One thing that I definitely do on a daily basis is put my hair up into a pony tail — spin class, BodyPump, yoga — I am just not one of those girls who can workout with her hair down!

Traditional hair ties leave marks and dents in your hair and can cause extra pressure and breakage on your strands — but not the invisibobble! I’ll be honest, I spotted this cute little product at the checkout counter at Sephora while I was waiting in line.  I was struck more at first by its tiny little packaging and threw it in my basket on a whim.

I must say — I am a total invisibobble convert!  They don’t put dents in my hair while I sleep or workout, and they don’t cause any damage on my thin strands.  They also have really good grip and don’t slip out of your hair mid-spin class. I use the standard size, but they also come in a “power” large size, and in a teeny tiny “nano” size. And there are a ton of colors to choose from whether you want to match your own hair or have a fun, bright color like “Pinking of You”. PS – this is not sponsored, I just totally love these hair ties! 

Find them at Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom, Sephora, Beauty.com, and more below!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Its the most wonderful time of year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I wasn’t as excited about this year’s sale as I was last year, but after perusing the website and visiting the store over the weekend, I found a few things that I wanted to share with you!

I tried on this windowpane print dress in store and ended up ordering it in my size online. It has a detachable collar and I know it will look super cute with tights and boots this fall! I also loved this sweater with the open back and attached pleats but they didn’t have my size in store or online. Hopefully it comes back in stock before the sale ends! I’m still mulling over the grey cape — its just so cute!!

I have this tote in black and just love the nude color! Its super roomy and is so lightweight. I also love these stone earrings — they are ridiculously affordable and come in five different colors!!!

Nordstrom cardholders can shop the sale until July 17th — and then the sale gets opened to the public. If you’re a cardholder you better start shopping!! For those of you who aren’t card holders, you can still “window shop” the sale and create a wishlist while you wait!

A walk into town

One of the things I really missed this winter was the walk into town to work in a coffee shop for a few hours. Working from home can get a little tiresome day after day, so its nice to have a place to go when I need a little change of scenery.

Its still a bit chilly, but I am so over wearing a jacket, so I layered up with a chunky sweater and scarf. One of my favorites parts about walking into town is all the steps that I get on my FitBit! At home and working out I wear the standard silicone band, but when I go out I’ve upgraded to Tory Burch’s new leather wrap bracelet. I am obsessed with my FitBit, but I just didn’t like how it looked with some of my outfits — now you can’t even tell that I’m wearing a fitness tracker!
