I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend!  Every spring I treat myself to a new perfume.  I look for a scent that is fresh, light and happy.  Daisy by Marc Jacobs is just that.  It has a really pretty, subtle floral tone that isn’t the least bit overwhelming.  Daisy is classic and a favorite of mine, while Daisy Eau So Fresh is a little bit more playful and fun.  It’s fruity (I love the hint of raspberry, grapefruit, pear and plum) and bubbly with notes of violet, apple blossom, musk and cedar wood.  Both scents are so refreshing and perfect for spring!

Happy Friday!  I wore this outfit earlier in the week to meet a girlfriend for lunch.  This shirt is made of the softest denim fabric and has quickly become one of my favorite chambrays.  I paired it with this distressed denim skirt and my new bag which is currently sold out, but I’m really loving this one.  Bucket bags are so classic and great for the spring/summer.  They’re ideal because they can go cross body and are roomy enough to fit everything; wallet, cosmetic case, lip gloss, cell phone etc.  Enjoy your weekend!

Beachy Waves Hair Tutorial

I am so excited to finally share this hair tutorial with you!  Loose beachy waves look great on everyone and are so easy to achieve.  It usually takes me about 10-15 minutes to curl my entire head of hair.  I always use a 1″ curling iron (if you have shorter hair you may want to try a 3/4″ iron.)  The Joico products I used are all linked in the video – simply click on the product name and you’ll be directed to their newly launched e-commerce site.  (The K-PAK Reconstructor was my absolute fave.)  To celebrate their new site, Joico is running a sweepstakes called “Picture Me On Vacation” where you could win a fabulous trip somewhere exotic – make sure to enter here!  I’ve loved collaborating with Joico over these past few months.  Their amazing team and products made it so fun to create videos and posts like this.  Let me know if there’s a certain hair tutorial you’d like to see in the future…I’m thinking maybe a sock bun or some kind of updo? :)

Special thanks to Joico for sponsoring this post.
