4 Reasons I Love My Dyson Hairdryer

With the holidays just around the corner and all the shopping that goes with it, I thought it would be a great time to weigh in on my experience with the Dyson hair dryer.

#JohnnyBravorHair with Bumble & Bumble

If you could only see my bathroom, then you’d quickly realize that I am quite the hair product junkie. Some girls love makeup and lipstick colors and nail polish, well I love hair products!

3 Things I Do to Get My Hair Color to Last

I’m pretty sure one of the best inventions of this decade has been balayage hair. Am I wrong?! I not only love how it looks, but it’s low maintenance, natural, and the best part – you only need to go in for it a couple times a year. I never need it more than 2x a year and I think it’s because of a few things. One, my hairdresser does…

3 Reasons I’ve Been Using Tula & Loving It

I’ve shared that I use Tula on Insta Stories before, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized I hadn’t dedicated a blog post to it. Which is kinda funny because I’ve been literally using it for years and it’s one of my favorite skincare lines. I’ve been using them in some way or another since all the way back when they were first getting started – maybe back in…

How I Do My Loose Waves

Ever since I cut my hair, I haven’t really experimented with it much. I usually just round brush it dry, maybe do a little velcro-roller action, and then I’m done. But when I was at the beach last month with my friend Liz, she told me she is obsessed with her Beachwaver and inspired me to try mine. I’ve actually had this bad boy in my bathroom for almost 2…

How to Take Better Care of Your Hair

Y’all, I have to apologize. I’ve been promising more hair content for months, and it’s taken me SO long! Sometimes I struggle with posting beauty content until I feel like I’m a pro with the style or topic – because I actually want to share quality content instead of me figuring something out, ya know? Also, I’m just a perfectionist like that. I’ve been sharing quick tips on Instagram (like…

5 Things Keeping My Skin Hydrated This Summer

I’ll be honest that I’ve been blessed with pretty regular skin. I don’t get a ton of breakouts and it honestly doesn’t give me TOO much of an issue, but y’all know I’ve been trying to take better care of it. Honestly, it not being too much of a problem area has made me lazy with it over the years – and I thought it was time to change that.…

The Makeup Routine I Rarely Leave the House Without

Even though we talk a lot about beauty on BTD and I’m a Southern girl who loves to get all dolled up on occasion, honestly, I’m pretty low maintenance with my routine. Rarely am I into something that takes more than 20 minutes or makes me look unnatural. I’m much more into easy, effortless beauty routines or products. Because as you probably know, I’m constantly running 20 minutes behind, ha!

The Power of Learning to Accept a Compliment

Like most women reading this post, I haven’t always been comfortable (slash GOOD) at taking a compliment. I don’t know if it’s part of being female, or if it’s a personality thing, but I suck at accepting nice words face-to-face. Just the other day when leaving an industry event, the sweetest woman came up to me to shed some compliments. She was a reader of BTD (which BTW, is always…

The First Non-toxic Beauty Product That I’ve Loved

As a somewhat beauty blogger, I’m actually pretty #embarrassed to say that I haven’t dabbled much in clean, non-toxic beauty products. It’s something that’s been on my radar for personal reasons, yet it’s taken me YEARS to really start learning about the dangers in our beauty products. I’m not trying to get all Teacher Brighton on y’all, but our standards in the beauty world haven’t actually been regulated for DECADES,…
