Blo Blow Dry Bar Leaves Your Hair Sexy and Sleek

Share Button

Received hair services free of charge. Images and opinions my own.

Last week I walked into Blo — North America’s first blow dry bar at their Dupont Circle location in Washington, D.C. with dry, frizzy, over hair sprayed and unwashed hair.

I had been invited to experience the WASH, BLOW, GO concept (blow out and style) to celebrate the opening of their latest blow dry bar in Gaithersburg, Maryland and I wanted it to be worth my while.

What is Blo Blow Dry Bar? It’s a no cuts, no color hair salon. Just WASH, BLOW, GO.

I know, it sounds simple and so obvious. Sometimes you just want to have your hair properly dried and styled by someone else and sit back and relax (I’m the kind that lets my child play with my hair or bribe him to brush it!) Or you need your hair to be on its best behavior — especially on the go.

Blo makes it easy to pop in before a work meeting, before a date or just to look fabulous for the evening.

Right now the big news is that actress Gwyneth Paltrow and hairstylist to the stars David Babaii have joined the Blo family as part of the creative team with plans for growth and brand strategy.

With their partnership, Blo will be able to spread red carpet glamour to women with quick, convenient and affordable blow outs. So basically you can get sleek and sexy Gwyneth looking hair at any time. Like her or not, she does have gorgeous hair!

Blo has a hair menu with different style options and I ended up with the “holly would” which involves plenty of curls and bounce — AND I even changed up my part. I know, I went crazy! The next day my hair looked EVEN better; I really rocked the messy waves look.

Will I be back? YES.

The new location is at 317 Ellington Boulevard, Gaithersburg, Maryland and the D.C. location is one block from Rock Creek Park at 2126 P. Street, NW.

WASH, BLOW, GO mamas!

Brush Longer with the Disney Magic Timer App by Oral B (VIDEO)

Sponsored by Oral-B. Cute kids and video ideas are my own. “brusha brusha brusha…” Okay, I admit, I had no idea you are supposed to brush for 2 minutes. Did you? Either way, the Disney Magic Timer App by Oral B (which is free) makes brushing fun by letting you — I mean your kids — create a profile, scan the chosen tooth brush, keep track of how many times a day they have brushed (something I need to work on) and gives them cool {Read More}

Bringing Sheer Nude Tights Back in 2015

This post is sponsored by L’eggs Sheer Energy® Sheer tights. Styling ideas are my own. Call me crazy, but right after deciding to show the world what I look like in a swimsuit I opted to wear sheer, yes sheer NUDE tights (or is it panty hose?!) for a TV appearance. I have no idea what they are called these days because it’s been AGES since I’ve worn them. Related Post: Loving not Loathing #MySwimsuitStyle Colored and textured tights for me {Read More}

Up and Away: Safe Medicine Storage in your Home

Share Button

This is a sponsored post in partnership with KnowYourOTCs. Summer means fun in the sun, cannonballing into the pool, jumping waves at the beach and… kids spending more time at home which can lead to trouble. Their natural curiosity leads them to open cabinets, drawers and more often than not finding medicine bottles, eye drops, sun creams and lotions that are dangerous when swallowed. Therefore safe medicine storage is crucial to ensure safety in your home. I cannot tell you how many {Read More}

LOVING not Loathing #MySwimsuitStyle this Summer

For years I didn’t wear a swimsuit. I refused to because I despised the way I looked. We are intelligent, beautiful women who have started our own business ventures, have endured hardships, many of us have given birth, we have gone above and beyond what was expected of us —  yet we cannot bring ourselves to wear a swimsuit. I want ALL of you to enjoy the summer and to accept and love yourselves. Trust me, it’s not easy for {Read More}

I don’t like to wear shorts — I prefer dresses and skirts during the summer, BUT my motto is TRY IT ON and well, with these group of stylish mamas, how could I say no?
