how to use a curling wand

The curling wand has become quite the popular tool and I finally got myself one! Have you heard of them? It's a curling iron without the clamp. To use it, you wrap the hair around the barrel with you fingers. Before I was just using my regular curling to "wrap curl" my hair, but it would leave creases from the clamp line. I got the Enzo Milano (31MM 1 1.4" barrel) clamp-less curling iron and LOVE it. The curls look better and the wand is much lighter.  Using the curling wand is pretty easy. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when using:

  •  Take a 2 inch sections to curl. 
  • Wrap hair around barrel away from face (another option is to switch every other wrap curl away from face and toward face)
  • Hold for 8-10 seconds and release it carefully and let sit.
  • Continue to do this to entire head of hair. 
  • After curls have had time to sit, run your fingers to break up the curls and loosen them up. 
  • Finish with hair spray to hold curls. 
  • Use a smaller barrel for smaller curls or shorter hair
Let me know if you have any questions and happy curling!

Feel Your Best

Shoes // Nike via Nordstrom here

Everybody wants to look and feel their best… everybody has different ways of achieving that. It could be a simple beauty routine, a style staple or even a bubble bath at the end of the day. 

One way I continue to feel and look my best, is by exercising. What I absolutely LOVE about exercise is not how it makes me look but most importantly how it makes me feel…


Not only that, I feel it helps me sleep better, keep a schedule, and maintain healthy habits. So many great reasons to stay active!     

And that's why I do it.

Maternity Photos





Dress : Rachel Pally shop here // Sandals: J.Crew shop here
Photographer: Dan Muller

I am so excited to be sharing our maternity photos. We shot them super early on a foggy morning this past month with one of my favorite local photographers, Daniel Muller, and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out.  It's such a special time in our lives and I wanted to make sure to capture that. Sorry for the photo overload, and this was only a fraction of them! 

I am currently 39 weeks and 3 days today. Stay tuned on Instagram so you can see when I have her! I imagine I will be MIA on the blog for a few days when she comes, aside from some scheduled posts.
