Some times,  my job can be so fun, like when I can do this:

If you click through and read the comments on Facebook, you’ll see that while friends believed that my hair was that long, I eventually unveil that I really did get my hair cut, except it turned out looking like this:

Did I trick you? I truly fooled a lot of people with the long locks. How? I was wearing Secret Extensions, the same Secret Extensions that Daisy Fuentes uses. And they are so easy to use. The extensions are attached to a thin elastic band that goes in your hair like a headband and hangs your hair under the bottom of your hairline.
Here are a few more pictures of me trying Secret Extensions.

Are Secret Extensions right for your hair?

I’ll tell you, Secret Extensions are tons of fun. A friend came over when I was playing with them and had them in a pony tail and she couldn’t get over how real they looked and felt. And they do. They require a bit of work (definitely watch some of the videos on their website about curling irons and flat irons before using). But they’re amazing for a fun and fancy night with a new look.

My hair isn’t really right for Secret Extensions, because the texture of my hair doesn’t take well to humidity and I live in a very humid environment. My hair is constantly curling and frizzing after just a few minutes outside, especially in the summer. Even when I blow it out straight (or flat), it will spring up and look less flat, more bouncy. This does’t work well with the Extensions that continue to lay beautifully, ideally, really.

But not everyone has hair that responds to the atmospheric pressure, humidity and weather like mine. (I’m looking at you, Debbie. I’m insanely jealous.) Some hair takes to a style and remains beautiful all day and night. If that’s you, then grab a few sets of Secret Extensions for new body, fullness and length. It’s SO fun.

What about color?

There are eleven colors on the Secret Extensions website, and a great video to help you choose. But even better, after you select your colors and receive them, if they aren’t right for your hair, it’s an easy exchange, no questions asked. I received a lot of samples for this post and they were all too dark. (Some of the images in the gallery, above, were way too dark.) A second batch and the match was perfect. You can also mix 2 shades for a little more drama. I have a sample of Medium Red Brown just so I can add a little drama to my hair.

How many do you need?

I’d definitely recommend at least 2 sets of Secret Extensions. The second set helps to blend the hair more. In the photos when I’m wearing the blue dresses and orange top, I have just one set in. In the photos where I’m wearing the white top, I have 2 sets.

What I love about Secret Extensions

I love that you can use Secret Extensions when you want, and take them out when you don’t feel like wearing them. They’re great for those of us who are terrified of commitment, or want to try a new look. They retail for $39.99, and a second set is $29.99. They come with a 30 day money back guarantee and they’re guaranteed to perfectly blend with your hair, or they’ll exchange them. So worth a try.

So. Did I trick you?

Enjoying summer and focusing on making every last minute left count

Enjoying summer and focusing on making every last minute left count

I just love summer!(I know. If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times.) And every year, I grow to love summer more and more with my family. I love everything from eating outside on our deck to hours at the pool to having time to read. Even more, I love doing it with my kids and husband. I love vacations and day trips and that there’s no rush after a day of school to get homework…

I’m all about wearing jewelry that not only looks fabulous, but also have fabulous meaning. So I’m really excited to share Origami Owl’s new CORE line with you (it comes out next week!) in this sponsored post.

Mom’s Back to School Checklist (free printable)

Mom’s Back to School Checklist (free printable)

All around us, friends are preparing for Back to School. We’re seeing pictures on Social Media of friends in southern and western states celebrating the first day. Stores are advertising Back to School promotions and schools are sending out teacher letters. As much as we don’t want summer to end, it’s inevitable and I’d have my family be prepared for the first day of school, then scurry around…

Video: How to apply foundation make-up

Video: How to apply foundation make-up

I must have slept through the “how to apply make-up” classes during high school. And that’s probably a good thing, because I remember friends with chunks and lines of foundation. It was much better that I just didn’t wear any at all. But times change, we age and our skin doesn’t always age as spotlessly as we want it to. It’s suddenly time to learn how to apply Foundation properly. A few years…

Favorite Productivity Apps

I’m the type of person who makes lists… and loses them. I have at least 4 notebooks going at all times, because one is on each floor of my house, plus one in the car. Which has never really made me productive. However, the one thing I’m never without, my iPhone. And I’ve worked hard to find apps that help me to be more productive, and help me through my day. Here are my top six suggestions for…
