Fashion Fix for 2015

There is nothing quite as disconcerting as spending an entire morning trying to pull together just the right look for a particular event, only to show up at said event to find that you keep getting mistaken for the wait staff. I just hate it when that happens. After all, I know that black is the go-to fashion essential for all occasions, be it a classically tailored pair of trousers or a slim pencil skirt. And a feminine take on the crisp white blouse is always chic. My mistake was allowing myself to get distracted by a long awaited and much anticipated phone call from my soon-to-be beau (thinking positive here!) and rushing out of the house without properly accessorizing! All it would have taken to differentiate me from the caterers was the gorgeous scarf that I left draped over the back of the sofa. And maybe if I hadn't dashed out the door in such a hurry I wouldn't have forgotten my fabulous new artisan bracelet either. And I'm quite certain that had I been properly accessorized, I wouldn't have ended up being handed a tray of hors d'oeuvres by a very cranky man in a chef's toque, along with the admonishment to "stop chattering to the guests and get these crab puffs out there missy!"

Anyhoo, lesson learned darlings! And speaking of accessories, do you know what the best thing about them is? They are completely size independent! No matter how much weight, you have lost or need to lose, no matter what your fitness level or even your income level, when it comes to accessories a girl can always find the perfect accent. I just love the fact that the gorgeous pair of platform skyscrapers I bought to celebrate the first ten pounds lost will look equally stunning with the designer jeans I bought to celebrate meeting my weight loss goal. Which is why I always use accessories as rewards for whatever it is I am trying to accomplish.

So here are a few of the fabulous items I am going to reward myself with for making my New Year's Resolutions a reality — even if it takes me the rest of 2015 to accomplish said goals!

Leather gloves. What a great way to add a little color and style to your cold-weather wardrobe! From brights and bling to pretty patents and fun animal prints, luscious leather gloves are a great treat.

Snappy wallet. For the girl who adores handbags, a nifty new wallet is a real treat indeed. It's a quick fix at a fraction of the cost of a handbag, but just as much fun to acquire! So many colorful choices in an abundance of fabrics and styles.

Great wristwatch. I know, I know, who needs a wristwatch when she can always check her cell phone for the time? But can you strap a phone on your arm and make a fashion statement with it? I think not! Watches are fashion accessories darlings! Which is patently apparent in this season's fantastic selection of sleek styles, watches with a feminine flare, time pieces in bright and bold colors and the always classic tank.

Desert Booties. These are going to be my go-to shoes for spring. They are so very versatile — will work as well with a flirty flouncy skirt as with a pair of boyfriend jeans. From felts to sleek leather to brushed suede and in a great selection of colors and heel heights.

Crossbody Bag. I absolutely adore the crossbody style! It is ideal for casual weekends and perfect for toting along on professional outings. I love being able to toss the strap across my shoulder and over my head, knowing that the bag is safe and secure, and both of my hands are free! Just be sure there is plenty of room for all you girly goodies! It also helps if there is a handle or shorter strap for grab 'n go.

Twister is so easy to use! I have a LOT of hair – long and thick and impossible to dry and style on my own. My arms are absolutely exhausted after trying to hold a hair dryer in one hand and a round brush in the other. But with the Twister I was able to dry and style my hair in half the time and with a lot less struggle. Loved the soft curls I ended up with! I would recommend this to anyone with mid-length or longer hair. You won't be disappointed!.

 


Evo Winter Tips - Hot Tools

Evo International Creative Director, Lauren McCowan, offers advice and tips on how to manage and use hot tools during the upcoming winter months.

  • The most important thing when using hot tools on the hair is making sure you have a good base to start on.
  • Using a good shampoo and conditioner to build moisture and strength in your hair is the most important step. You need to fill in the gaps in the hair's health and then use your hot tools to seal that in. It will make your style last longer and give better shine and quality hairRitual Salvation Shampoo and conditioner from evo have a repair and hydration factor as well as a UV/UVB factor without being heavy or greasy. 
  • Once the hair is prepped, a good leave-in conditioner will create an even porosity and also an extra layer of moisture to counteract against the heat. Day of Grace leave in conditioner spray is totally weightless and will give an extra UVA/UVB protection for all hair types.
  • Icon Welder by evo is one of the most versatile heat protectors on the market. While giving the hair amazing protection from hot tools, it also has a hold and shine factor that will keep your style in place as well as being completely brushable. Spray over the whole head wet and dry in or spray in dry and brush in before heat styling.
  • One of the major mistakes that women make when using hot tools is to spray the section with hairspray BEFORE putting the hot tool on it. Hairspray contains alcohol in its formulation and when you apply heat over a layer of hairspray it dries the hair out even more and can create static as well as causing your curls to drop.
  • When the hair is dried out, it will attract what it needs on a base moisture level from the atmosphere around it - hence the reason hair that has had too much heat applied to it 'drops out'. By building a good foundation with product and using your tools on moderate to medium temperature, you will essentially 'seal' the moisture in the hair and your hair will look better and last longer. 
  • Set the hair first and spray with hairspray after to  set the style you have created.Evo's Helmut Light is a strong hold hairspray that is completely brushable and will leave an invisible finish in the hair so you are never stuck with 'crunchy' curls.

Step Up Your Skincare Routine in 2015! Flawless Looking Skin with the AMBI 3-Step Regimen

The New Year is a great time to implement positive changes in your life. While some goals are lofty, like kicking a reality TV habit or clocking in 8 hours of sleep each night, sticking to a simple 3-step skincare routine can be achieved without a lot of effort, if you are using the right products for your skin’s needs. Try adding AMBI® to your skincare arsenal. In three easy steps, you can turn dull skin into glowing skin.*

  STEP 1: CLEANSE
Cleansing is not only recommended as the first step in your beauty routine, it’s essential. Begin your beauty regimen with AMBI® EVEN & CLEAR® Exfoliating Wash to effectively clear skin and prevent breakouts, while helping maintain an even complexion. This creamy exfoliating wash contains 0.5% salicylic acid to help improve the look of skin by eliminating dead skin cells, leaving it smoother and more radiant.
 
STEP 2: MOISTURIZE
Moisture is key to helping maintain the skin barrier and in preventing skin from becoming dry and flaky. After cleansing, moisturize with the AMBI® EVEN & CLEAR® Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30. It’s advanced, oil-free formula is hypoallergenic and gentle enough for sensitive skin. It won't clog pores or leave skin looking shiny. This “multi-tasking” moisturizer evens out complexion to reduce the appearance of discoloration and provide protection from the sun.
  STEP 3: TREAT
Apply AMBI® Fade Cream to treat uneven skin tone and dark marks (SRP $6.49/2 oz.). This unique treatment was developed and designed with skin of color in mind. The active ingredient, hydroquinone, has been shown to decrease the overproduction of melanin and when applied regularly it delivers visible results.
