GREAT HAIR GIVEAWAY

A woman’s hair is her ‘crowning glory’ and for a Leo like me…… it’s well, everything! It’s our mane! As you know, I love hair. Big hair. Rocker hair. Keith Urban-esque hair. Highlighted hair. Curled hair. Bombshell sexy hair. 70’s Cher straight hair. So, it’s important to keep my hair as healthy as possible with all that styling happening on a daily basis. Thanks to my girlfriend and PR beauty Ali Volk, I was introduced to the amazing gilrbosses of Dear Clark, Holly Dear and Kaycee Clark.  Their superstar colorist Bria Haworth has been doing my balayage highlights and Holly does my cut. Stepping into the salon is such like getting a great big hug. The energy is fun, supportive, loving and creative. My kind of spot for getting beautified!  I always walk out with bouncin’ and behavin’ hair. For at home care, I use their hair care and body care products. They have truly revamped my hair and I get compliments on my mane daily. Thanks girls! Their products are now available at Target.com 

DC-BOBD-2016-1024x500

Holly Dear and Kaycee Clark, uniquely talented stylists, had an idea bigger than Texas – invent a range of super effective, natural based, locally sourced hair care products to bring stressed hair back to life.

From their Uptown-based Dallas salon comes Dear Clark, Hair Care – made in Texas with natural active ingredients from the deep heart of the Lone Star State and with a signature scent crafted from pure and powerful essential oils.

For the second week of my birthday month, we are giving you 4 of the top Dear Clark products: Resurrecting Wash & Rinse, Volumizing Tonic & Revitalizing Body Lotion. ($96. Value) dear-clark-resurrecting-wash-product-shot-510x510

IMG_3470

HELLO GORGEOUS!

Over the years, many of you have asked for my hair routine, but I really thought it would be too complicated to film. There’s a method to my madness and I hope this step X step tutorial is easy to follow! Even if you have a bob or lob (long bob) these steps will apply to you. Also, we all have different hair types so you may not need as many products as I do.

STEP 1: Thermal Protectant

STEP 2: Volumizing Product

STEP 3: Blowdry

STEP 4: Set top in velcro rollers

STEP 5: Curl bottom of hair [I’m using the extended XL  1 1/4″ barrel by Hot Tools]

STEP 6: Remove rollers and curl

STEP 7: Break up curls with a texturizing pomade [My favorite is Dear Clark’s Finishing Salve]

FullSizeRender-91

 

Love to hear from you! What video topics would you like to see? We are planning to film new videos through Summer.

Also, we still have the Limited Edition #Tiffirmation Tee’s available so grab one before their gone!

IMPORTANT: I cherish you and am committed to providing info, tips, experience, insight, tools and any resources I find that will help you elevate your life and live in more freedom! Please take a moment to share this post with any of your girlfriends who need a lift in their spirit or with their hair 🙂

HAPPY JULY!  Take some time to think about how you want the month to look. We are halfway through 2016 and it’s a great time to look over the goals you set at new years. I wrote in my journal this morning and set some new goals for the month. Highly recommend!

HAPPY 4th OF JULY to my U.S. sistas!

SHOWER SOS: Winter Overall for the Bath & Shower

shower_blackwhiteHey Sistas!

Many of you on the East Coast are experiencing the first snowfall of the year. Believe it or not- it was 90 degrees here in LA yesterday, but the evenings are getting chilly and I have started to overall my bath & shower routine to prepare for the winter in Texas. It dropped to the 30’s there yesterday so I know my skin will have to adapt! Our skin, perspiration and oil production changes as the season’s change so it’s important to change your body wash, shampoo/conditioner and lotions. You know I am a Drugstore Diva and love finding great healthy products at the corner CVS, grocery store or Target.

Here’s my faves for giving your shower a winter SOS rescue: 

alba-botanica-natural-very-emollient-bath-shower-gel-midnight-tuberose-midnight-tuberose

//ALBA NATURAL VERY EMOLLIENT BATH & SHOWER GEL//

This bath gel blends aloe vera, botanical extracts and fragrant herbs to gently cleanse, nourish and moisturize for healthy-looking skin. Hypo-allergenic and pH balanced.

St.Ives_seasalt

//ST.IVES Purifying Sea Salt Body Wash//

Renew your skin’s surface to reveal healthier looking skin with the 100% natural  exfoliants. Brighten dull skin while also hydrating.  Containing mineral salt and Pacific sea kelp, which are known to  supply skin with vitamins and anti-oxidants, the purifying formula invigorates tired, sluggish skin.

EO_bubble_bath_blu_chm_lav_md

//EO Blue Chamomile & Lavendar Bubble Bath//

I am a diehard bath lover and enjoy creating a spa-like environment with great smelling bubbles. Many are too harsh and filled with alcohol and skin-drying ingredients. Do you ever get out of the bath and your skin feels tight and itchy? It’s probably your bubble bath. I love this one by EO with Glycerin, Rice Proteins, Allantoin, and Panthenol which moisturize, hydrate and nurture the skin. Naturally derived plant Panthenol (Vitamin B) restores moisture. 

SM_cond+shampoo

//SHEA MOISTURE Organice Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo + Restorative Conditioner//

An extra-moisturizing conditioner that de-tangles and repairs dry, damaged, or over-processed hair. With sea kelp, argan oil and raw, organic shea butter. Heal, grow and strengthen your hair!

albafoamshave-aloemint-web

//ALBA Natural Very Emollient Foam Shave in Aloe Mint//

Enriched with aloe vera, calendula, chamomile and vitamin E, this highly lubricating foam helps fight off dryness and chaffing.

traderjoes_bodybutter

//TRADER JOE’S Coconut Body Butter//

Before you get out of the shower, when your skin is still damp, apply a healthy oil based butter or straight coconut oil before your body lotion or use alone. I like to layer in the winter! This body butter contains Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E.

SM_bodylotion

//SHEA MOISTURE Olive & Green Tea Body Lotion//

Olive Oil exhibits a high content of healing Vitamin E and fatty acids which help to hydrate, repair and heal skin.  Green Tea contains powerful antioxidants that protect skin from free radical damage.  Avocado is rich in Vitamins A, D and E, Lecithin and Potassium which help nourish skin.

Cheers to glowing beautiful hair & skin all winter long!

END OF MAY SOS BEAUTY/STYLE/INSPIRATION

Hey Style Sistas!

WOOHOO!  It’s officially Summer and as the temps continue to heat up, here’s a few tips for staying cool and looking fabulous, plus some inspiration for the week ahead:

WRAP THAT HAIR UP!

Tiff_leopard_headscarf

Regardless of your hair length, it can get so sticky and uncomfortable, plus the humidity can have you looking like a wet mop during summer.  There are so many ways to keep it off your neck without reverting to the boring old ponytail.  This summer, the Retro 50’s look is everywhere from swimsuits, rolled up jeans, cat eye shades and headscarfs–which you all know is MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!   Channel your inner Old Hollywood actress like Sophia Loren or Audrey Hepburn and play around with scarves.  Check out my Pinterest Board on headscarves for more ideas and inspiration.

SPRAY THAT FACE!

rosepetalsrosewater

Keep a bottle of aromatherapy hydrating spray nearby at all times during the hot months.  I even keep a small travel size bottle in my purse!  When you’re skin is feeling parched, spritz it on your face, neck, decolletage and down your arms.  My favorite is the Rose Water by Heritage Products.  There are also easy DIY recipes by adding your favorite essential oils, pure aloe vera juice, cucumber or lemon to distilled water. 

 

BE INSPIRED!

‘NUFF SAID.

Whew, the month of May whizzed by!  Did you set any specific intentions for the month?  If so, please share any magical moments! 

Let us be grateful for the good times May brought, any special memories made with new or old friends, exciting experiences and opportunities then begin to set your intentions for June.

End of Summer Pampering + Your Sunday Eve Affirmations

Hello Gorgeous!

Who is excited to celebrate the official end of summer this holiday weekend?  Perhaps many of you are sad to see summer go. I have mixed feelings because I love the long days of sunshine, but this heat has got to go already. It has been fun to read all the comments by you mom’s on Facebook about the kids going back to school and getting more time to yourselves.  This is the PERFECT time to focus on YOU and start sprucing up your skin, hair, nails, energy level and wardrobe for Fall.  Sounds like a hefty job, but YOU ARE WORTH IT!  If you have spent too much time in the sun + chlorine, nibbling on your kids packaged snacks, exercising less and enjoying that extra summer cocktail on a regular basis– then there are a few simple tweaks we can do to get back on track!

BOOK A FACIAL:  Because we sweat more in the summer, you may notice more breakouts and blackheads.  It is great to have a professional esthetician perform any extractions, deep clean and hydrate your sun-parched skin. Plus, even if you are diligent with your sunscreen you probably picked up a few new sunspots and hyperpigmentation which can be helped with a light glycolic peel, microdermabrasion or my fave, the Hydrafacial.  You know I adore at-home facials, but I also firmly believe in treating yourself as often as you can to a professional facial. (I have to give a shout out to my amazing esthetician, Trisha Gilbert at Motykie MedSpa.  She gave me an off-the-charts end of summer Hydrafacial last week.  If you are in the greater Los Angeles area, book an appt today)

HAIR HYDRATION:  Does your hair feel like the scarecrow from Wizard of Oz?  Then it’s time to do a DEEP CONDITIONING TREATMENT.  There are several great ones on the market, but I love KERESTASE MASQUINTENSE FOR THICK HAIR the most. They also have a formula for fine hair.

EXFOLIATE + HYDRATE SKIN: There are a few different ways to exfoliate the skin which are super effective.  I just started DRY BRUSHING a few months ago and love the difference it has made in my skin. There are many important health benefits to it other than just getting the dead skin off. Dry brushing also helps stimulate the lymphatic system. You do this before you get in the shower.  Scrubs are also a great way to exfoliate and the essential oils leave your skin hydrated and feeling so soft.  There are many fantastic products from Neutrogena, Philosophy, Archipelago and even Trader Joe’s makes a great scrub!  If your skin is extremely dry, I recommend slathering on coconut oil or olive oil after showering. Use sparingly so you don’t feel like a piece of chicken ready for the frying pan!

MANI/PEDI PLUS PARAFFIN:  Remember a woman’s hands can show aging before her face, so it’s vital that we take care of them.  Treat yourself to a mani/pedi with the works (paraffin wax, hot stone, extra massage and callous remover) to get your hands and feet feeling like they belong to a lady and less like a mechanic!

DETOX/ CLEANSE:  With the fun BBQ’s, picnics and vacations, we tend to eat more snacks and drink more alcoholic beverages during the summer.  This really takes a toll on our energy, our waistline and our metabolism.  I don’t go overboard because detoxing can become stressful.  Instead we need to look at it as a form of self- love and nurturing our body and organs and not as a “diet”.  A few simple things we can alter is the obvious: Lay off the alcohol, additional sugary drinks + snacks, any processed/ packaged foods, excess dairy, wheat, meat.  Implement juicing into your daily routine.  It does wonders for your organs and energy levels.  Eat more fresh raw foods.  You should be drinking a protein shake daily, but if not- I highly recommend starting the day with one filled with super greens, antioxidant supplements and either blueberries or strawberries. (REMINDER: If you have specific health issues like heart or thyroid problems or diabetes– you must consult your physician before trying any diet or cleanse)

WARDROBE DETOX:  Plan an afternoon to go through your wardrobe and determine what needs to stay, what needs to go and what needs to be moved to another closet.  I did this last week and it felt awesome!  I was able to see what items I needed to get for Fall and what I what I needed to give away.  Then I hit a few of my fave stores and strategically purchased what I needed. This really saves time + money.  Here’s my webisode on the topic in case you missed it: 

Your Sunday Eve Affirmations.

THIS WEEK I WILL…..

  1. Pamper myself.
  2. Follow my bliss.
  3. Smile more.
  4. Love + Laugh harder.
  5. Try a new workout class.

DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY plus Beauty + Haircare Answers

Hey Happy Hotties!

Are you a worrier? Or are you a happy girl, naturally? Of course, at different seasons in our lives we may tend to be one over the other.  Really, we all have so much to be happy about in the grand scheme of things, but why is it we so often battle with unnecessary worry which drains us of energy, vibrance and joy.  When I’m worried, I feel as if I have a dark cloud over my entire life.  NO THANK YOU!  Bring on the blue skies and sunshine please!  Which sounds better to you? HAPPY(adj.) enjoying or characterized by well-being and contentment. WORRY (v.) to torment oneself with or suffer from disturbing thoughts; fret.  It is truly a conscious choice to stop worrying and choose happiness.

P.S. You girls who have won the AHP limited-edition EP, my hubby wrote a song on this very subject called “Nothing But Blue”- Enjoy!

There’s been lots of talk of HAPPINESS lately and Oprah’s even launching a “Celebrate 30 Days of Happiness” campaign to get us all focusing on our happiest moment of each day.  I love this and I’m joining in! I have to admit, I’ve been pretty lazy with my journaling and this is exactly the kick-in-the-bootie I need to get back to it. I know myself and I am much more peaceful and joy-filled when I write down happy moments and things I’m grateful for. Some people think journaling is just a venting session and a cathartic vomit of the negative junk in our heads. Ok- yes, someday’s that is what’s required to keep our sanity, BUT for the month of August– let’s all join Lady O and celebrate the things that make us happy. I want to see some comments below and on Facebook saying YES, I’M IN TIFF!

ARE YOU ALREADY SICK OF THE HEAT?

Growing up in the very hot, muggy + humid city of Houston, Tx– I know all about how uncomfortable extreme heat can be and how it puts a damper on our beauty routine! Here’s a few tips I’ve found to stay comfy + feeling clean during this time of year:

1. Keep the chaffing under control with a cornstarch based powder: GOLD BOND Medicated Powder and/or JOHNSON’S Cornstarch w/ Aloe + Vit E.  Apply a light dusting of the powder on inner thighs, under arms and under the edges of your bra.

2. Cooling spray for overheated or sunburned skin. Make with distilled water, a few drops of tangerine essential oil, aloe juice and a few drops of vit E oil. Keep in a spray bottle in the fridge.

3. Best workout gear to keep the outdoor fitness junkie’s cool + comfortable during the summer heat: ATHLETA’S “hot yoga” line of workout gear is designed with breathable fabrics for Bikram yoga- they style of yoga where the heater is cranked up for an added benefit to the body.  Perfect for staying comfy outdoors during summer too.

4. Many of us are in a swimsuit most of the summer. The pool chemicals plus a tight elastic band around the groin will create a rash, razor bumps and an all around uncomfortable feeling in your bikini.  Reduce razor burn and bumps with Bikini Zone (with lidocaine, salicylic acid, and aloe) to stay comfy in your bikini all summer long.

5. Tiger Balm or Icey Hot for staying comfy + cool in the heat.  Apply a dab or spritz on the inside of the wrists, back of neck and back of knees.   The menthol + eucalyptus has a lasting cooling effect.

6. Keep your feet comfy in sandals during the heat of summer by wearing sandals without a rubber insole.  Plastic or rubber flip flops add to the heat problem by making your feet sweat more.

7. Inbetween shampoos, use a dry shampoo to keep your hair smelling great and the extra sweat +oil under control.  I like TreSemme FreshStart and the one by John Freida. They’re both great and easy to find at most drugstores, target or walmart.

8.  My fave antiperspirant is Secret’s Outlast Clear Geland for women who prefer a natural brand, “Tom’s” is great too.

9. During summer switch from your usual alcohol-based perfume to an essential oil.  Our body chemistry changes during summer due to the heat so I HIGHLY recommend checking out my sister’s line of body oils called Corpus Dei .   She can even customize a personalized scent that works with your body chemistry.  Made with organic essential oils.

10. Stay hydrated! Drink more water than normal. I love to add cucumber and lemon slices for added nutrients.
