It's really hard to describe how beautiful the view is at the Enchantment's restaurant in Sedona. We loved sitting underneath these red rocks so much that we came back for dinner a second night to watch the sunset cast colors the danced on the rock walls. One night it was a little chilly and we cuddled under a blanket while we watched the sunset and the stars come out over the rocks. It was such a special trip and so romantic!

Write Me a Letter

Nov 23, 2014


Usually around this time of year I'm drafting my letter to Santa, but when L'Oreal asked me to write a letter to my hair, I couldn't resist putting it in poem form...

Dear Hair,

To my hair, I wanted to say thank you.
I haven't necessarily always been kind—sad, but true.
Like that time in 2004 when crimping was in style
We grew healthy ends again, but it took a while.
Or when I went through that phase where I curled you every day
You never complained, but boy did I pay.
My ends were so dry
I wanted to cry.
But we got a trim and started anew
My ends felt so much better, too.

Now that I'm older, I'm trying to take better care
And of the blowdryer, I'll always beware.
I know it sucks the moisture right out of you
And with that delicate balance, I'd rather not screw.
I've made some new friends that I think you'll really love
You can check them out in the photo above.
L'Oreal's Advanced Hair Care Collection
Will have us doing some inner reflection.
The Total Repair balm, conditioner and shampoo
Will get you feeling back to brand new;
Before all the chlorine, salt and bad weather
And you were soft and light as a feather.
So are you ready to go on this journey with me?
I promise we'll head into the holidays with glee!

Xoxo,
Elise

Orogold

Today I'm sharing some new finds from Orogold! I've been experimenting with my skincare routine lately, because I felt like it was time to shake things up, and because theknot.com spurred me to with their wedding checklist—one of the first action items is to kick your skincare routine up a notch.

When Orogold asked me which of their collections I'd like to try, I was immediately drawn to their Bio-Brightening Collection. I have very active and combination dry/oily skin, so I like trying products that brighten and even out my skin tone.

The brightening moisturizer (pictured above) glides on so smoothly, and I love the mild scent. Just by looking at the photo above you can practically feel how light and smooth the product is—it looks like whipped cream! With gold flakes in it of course...did I mention Orogold's products are infused with 24K gold? 

After trying the Bio-Brightening Collection for a couple weeks, my pores look smaller and my skin tone is certainly more even. Next up I'd love to try the 24K Multivitamin Series!

After returning from the frigid cold icebox that was Seattle last week, California's weather felt like summer time to me! God I love California. Even though it was a little gloomy out, I was happy to be able to wear my new, sheer maxi dress from 1802 without freezing. To make it fall-appropriate (it wasn't that warm, after all), I added a leather jacket, warm scarf, and my favorite fall booties. 

I'm also loving this nail polish color from Sephora! While we were shopping around Seattle my coworker wanted to stop in Sephora to try some different lip colors. While I was waiting for her I got sucked into the nail polish aisle, and ended up giving myself a manicure—complete with base, color, and top coat! I got a little carried away. Every time a store associate walked by I half expected one of them to say, "Ma'am, those colors are for samples, not full on manicures." But no one even raised an eyebrow and I left with a five minute mani. Too bad I had to wear gloves the rest of the day because it was so damn cold in Seattle!
