Taylor and I test out the KISS InstaWave...


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
KISS was generous enough to send me their super cool curling wand, with a twist ;), the InstaWave. Taylor and I thought we'd test it out and let you guys know what we thought...
What's really cool about this curling wand is how it automatically winds your hair around the barrel, without tangling it, which keeps your fingers from getting too close to the barrel (and if you are me, burning them) and also means that you don't have to wrap your hair around a barrel at an awkward angle. There are left and right curl buttons so that you can create curls in different directions and frame your face perfectly. It has 2 heat settings, the highest being 420 degrees so you can adjust the temperature based on how hard your hair is to curl. And it automatically shuts off after 90 minutes and, coming from someone who has left her curling wand on and left the house, this is a very good thing :) I think the price of 59.99 is also very reasonable and consistent with the pricing on higher end heat tools. Overall, I was really impressed with the product. It curled my hair very nicely and the curls lasted all day. It definitely takes some playing around with, but once you get the hang of it, it's super easy to use. I recommend using small sections of hair because that seemed to work the best for Taylor and I. For more information on the product and to purchase it...
*The InstaWave was sent to me by the company but as always all opinions are 100% my own :)*

It's My Blog's Birthday!!

Today marks the third year that I have had this blog! I can't believe that it has been that long and it has definitely come a long way in those 3 years. When I first started my blog was just called Morgan's Blog (yeah I was really creative and original with my naming ;)) and I mostly just wrote it for a few of my friends to read. Several design changes, a name change, and a lot more readers and now I'm where I am today! I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who reads and supports my blog, I've had some really cool opportunities because of it and I've connected with some awesome people. In honor of my blog's birthday I wanted to share some of my favorite and most popular posts from the last 3 years....

My Top 5 Fall Nailpolishes

 
Today I wanted to share with you the 5 nail polish colors I often reach for in the fall. I tend to gravitate more towards rich, dark colors instead of the brighter colors I opt for in the warmer months.
 
 
Purples, reds, and burgundies really complement a lot of the colors in my fall clothing.
 
 
1. Merino Cool // Essie   2. Close your Eyes // ORLY   3. Terra Mauve // ORLY   4. Tweed // Avon 
5. No Text Red // Sinful Colors
 
 
Which of these colors is your favorite? What are your favorite nail polishes in your collection for fall? Leave a comment letting me know :)

Get The Look: September NYLON Magazine Cover

Today I have a tutorial for you that is inspired by Aubrey Plaza's makeup on the cover of the September issue of NYLON. I wanted to make my look a little bit softer so that it would be more wearable, especially if you have fairer skin like me. If you want the same intensity that she has, just build up the colors a little bit more. Overall I was really happy with how this turned out and I would love to do more recreations of magazine looks so if you would like to see more be sure to leave a comment letting me know :)
