Have you tried Moroccan Oil yet?

July 13, 2010

Trips to the salon use to be exciting but dreadful at the same time. I love walking in with flat, dull hair in need of a good cut and color and seeing the transformation take place. But… I would always hate the sales pitches at the end for products.  I am a very simple person [...]

Sephora turns 10 with a bang!

October 22, 2008

Wow!  I was surprised to surf over to the Sephora website tonight and find out that they are celebrating their 10th birthday.  For some reason I thought they were much “older” than that, maybe it is due to their presence in the cosmetic industry over the last decade.  I am very excited about this occasion [...]
