Books to Read This Cold Weather Season

The fall season is well underway with the leaves around us browning and the smell of pumpkin spice lattes filling the air, yet with all these fun fall things happening the main change is the weather! The weather is starting to get colder as we transition into the holiday season and for me, cold weather means bundling up by a fire place (whether fake or real) with a good book.  I love a good classic novel as much as the next person but sometimes you just need a funny, girly book. Check out some of these titles the next time you are looking for something to read:

Written by Project Runway mentor and chief officer of Liz Claiborne, Tim Gunn breaks down every item in your closet and explains the significance and history behind them. From high heels to corsets you can learn how these things came to be. It is super informative and helpful when trying to plan a great outfit for a night out.

This hilarious, satirical book written by the creators of everyone’s favorite blog “Betches Love This” is a must read. It dabbles in the topics that are of the utmost concern to typical 20 something year old women such as texting, traveling, instagram and dying your hair. If you are having a bad day this book is sure to brighten it while also actually dishing out some helpful tips!

Former “The Hills” star dishes out her love and relationship advice for all to hear. She shares her personal stories about bad dates and failed relationships while giving awesome advice on what to do so you don’t end up in a situation like that. This book feels like advice from your own sisters!

In today’s society women of style and grace are hard to come by and even the best of us can lose our way. This book is a funny yet serious guide full of “old fashioned” advice on how to be a proper lady. It covers diet, speech, work ethic, friends, relationships, manners, makeup, and fashionable yet modest clothing, showing modern ladies how they can be beautiful, intelligent and fun while retaining values and morals.

Happy Reading!

10 Curl Commandments

If there is anyone who knows a thing or two about curls, it is our It Girl, Marisa Simone. Do you want some nice curls? Or better yet, would you like to maintain them? Well, Marisa dishes with us how to maintain perfect curly hair. Just follow her '10 Curl Commandments' and you will be ready to rock some playful curls!

1. Sleep on a satin pillow case
  • It will reduce dryness and breakage and hold some of the moisture in.
2. Detangle to protect your perfect mane
  • Use a wide tooth comb; never a brush.
3. Limit heat use on your hair
  • Heat pulls out moisture from curls, makes them dry and shapeless. 
4. Shampoo less
  • It is not necessary to shampoo your hair every day, try for every other day. 
5. Condition, condition, condition!
  • The curlier the hair, the longer it takes for natural oils to travel from the scalp to the ends. 
6. Style when wet
  • The tamest your hair will ever be is when it is wet. You will have much more control.
7. Read the ingredients of the products you use
  • Limit products with alcohol in them to avoid that crunchy, ramen noodle look!
8. Leave it alone!
  • Towel or blow drying can cause a bigger mess then just letting your hair dry naturally.
9. Make sure to diffuse 
  • If you must blow dry always use a diffuser, the regular nozzle changes your curl pattern. 
10. Love your hair no matter what!
  • We always want what we can’t have, so just think about all the girls out there pining for luscious, curly locks!
