We love love. Yes and we love valentine’s day not because we only need a special day to celebrate our loved ones , we should celebrate them always.  We love valentine’s day because it reminds us of the beauty of love and how much it is worth to people who have had to fight for it.

Valentine is a day marked with gift giving and special memories. It is a time to express our deepest thoughts and so let the gifts roll.

This year we have got the perfect gift for you.

Say hello to  Curlifornia. The blissful bottles of perfect beach hair and lingering memories.

A box of memories:  The Curlifonia way.

Happy Holidays everyone! Here in Los Angeles, we're still enjoying bikini beach days, so sometimes it's hard to get into the Christmas mindset. Store windows with fake pine trees in them just don't really mesh with the Palm tree lined sidewalks outside. 

One place in Southern California that does make me feel like Christmas though is the Disneyland resort. Each land is decorated for Christmas in it's own unique way, and Characters and cast members are in holiday garb. They also have a holiday parade and Santa meet and greets in both parks and in the three different Disney hotels. Oh, and did...

Last week S and I celebrated the arrival of the Holiday Season at Prism Boutique's after hours party! We went straight from work to Long Beach and left in such a rush I ended up having to change and do my makeup in the car on the ride over (something I'm used to after so many campsite shoots). 

    I honestly used to skip store parties because the time crunch didn't leave much room for hair styling... and my hair was aways such a mess afterwork. If I let it airdry before using My Curlifornia, it would be a ball of poof. If I tied it up during work it would have a huge kink in it by the end of...

Sky Brown (Professional Skater) Courtesy of Instagram

I love this picture of Sky Brown because it shows her drive, strength and perseverance for a sport that must bring her so much joy. I first came across Sky Brown, a now 9 year old skater from Japan, on my Facebook. Her skate skills are just so entertaining! She makes It look so easy and effortless and I have much respect because skating and I are like oil and water. To me, it’s one of the most intimidating sports, although you’re only a few inches off the ground. No, she’s not just good for a girl, she is just plain good. So, when I read tha...

SEPHORA’s Beauty Insider Event –


 Our recommendations of worthy buys at Sephora

When I received Sephora’s discount code for VIB Rouge members in the mail, I have to admit I did let out a screech of excitement lol. Seeing that Sephora hardly give out discounts, and with the holiday shopping already on full blast, I thought this would be a great time to spread the joy…!

Having a Rouge status at Sephora means I have spent way too much money 😉 but it also means I have tried plenty of products and if you’ve been in a Sephora store...

Getting photo ready hair while traveling has been one of my biggest blogging challenges in the past.
    I used to schedule all of my hair appointments the day before each road trip to maximize my blow outs. I'd  then carefully wrap up my hair at night so it wouldn't tangle before delicately brushing in a handful of dry shampoo in the morning. Too much dry shampoo would leave my hair feeling more like a wig, and not enough gave my hair uneven textures (dry at the ends, and oily at the roots). 

       I've also tried letting it dry naturally on the road with different hair curli...

Looking for a Halloween costume that'll show off your amazing mane?
Look no further than the woman who's had everyone talking about her hair for over two thousand years... Medusa.

​With my new favorite hair product I was able to create a modern take on Medusa's famous mane in just four simple steps! 

For those that don't know, Curlifornia is an amazing beach hair treatment that I've been using since June. It's the only hair product I use now (I used to use three to four products daily!) because it perfectly tames and relaxes my crazy "muppet hair".

It detangles my knots, leaves my hair smelli...

How does a company who just launched in June get invited 1.5 months later to THE famous Doris Bergman’s 8th Annual Emmy Style Lounge & Party @ The Hollywood Hotspot – FIG & OLIVE in West Hollywood you might ask?

I credit it all to God and His divine appointments. Curlifornia received a Facebook message from Jennifer Spilsbury, a client who bought Curlifornia at Just B’ Cuz (local boutique in San Clemente, California). She loved it so much, she pitched it to Doris Bergman to have us be a part of the gifting suite. To say I was elated and nervous would be an understatement but I was also so g...

OWN IT : Surfing has helped me to be more comfortable in my own skin. It washes away all makeup and helps you feel like yourself and embrace the real, authentic you. It reminds me to not shy away from my own individuality and uniqueness. To also look for that in others. Every one of us is special and has something beautiful to offer to the world. Being different isn't bad, it's interesting, full of color and beauty.

COMMIT : Surfing reminds me to not always allow fear to dictate my decisions. When I paddle out on bigger days, I get nervous and sometimes feel intimidated especially when I get ca...

"Less is More" - My "Mane" Routine

Sometimes we put too much product in our hair which causes build up, hair loss/weakening of hair follicles and irritates the scalp so I like to keep it simple so that my hair is as healthy as possible.

The Aussie shampoo and conditioner is better for thick hair because the 3 minute leave in conditioner might be too heavy for thinner hair types. The Suave is good for all hair types. I use the wetbrush to brush my hair carefully in the shower and it works perfectly, combs through all my knots. The Aquis hair towel is lightweight and is absorbant. I use Curliforni...
