I am just not a fan of doing my own hair. In fact, I loathe it. I want it to be a quick situation- like snap my fingers Cinderella style & everything falls together kind of quick. Is anyone else like this? I can’t be the only one on the planet who dreads doing my hair- I mean, if I have a good podcast to listen to it’s ok BUT it still has to be quick. In & out.

Anyway, leave it to me to find a random hack. A HACK THAT WORKS. This is one of those things that I fully recommend because I know when you guys use it, it will work for you too. HOW DO I KNOW THIS, YOU ASK? Because I used it on myself in 5 minutes & it looked like I spent an hour on my hair. There’s nothing I love more than recommending a product that I know you guys will take home, use, & love over and over again. Really nothing is better.

So with that, I have broken down how to use this very quickly in a video I shot on my phone- I’ve noticed you guys like these at-home tutorials. So OF COURSE I’ll do more.


Here’s the deal: this gadget is selling time. That’s all we are looking for lately. I see it everywhere. Postmates, Uber, Amazon- what they’re selling is simple: TIME. Which is another reason I love podcasts– they save time. You can paint your nails, do your makeup, cook, clean the kitchen- while you get knowledge in. TIME.

I am always looking for time in whatever I do. I call this ( & made this name up, mind you ) PASSIVE MULTI-TASKING. This is where you do something passive…that doesn’t require focus ( like doing your makeup ) while doing something effective ( listening to a podcast on finances ) so you’re getting shit done while learning.

Is anyone else like this?

So ta-da! That’s how I fake a blowout all while listening to a 5 minute inspiration podcast. Just make sure you use some hair SPF after- ha!

Hope you guys had an amazing weekend.

I’m off to bed to watch Billions– have you watched it? Such a good show. Also doing my full-on night routine tonight with a serious wind down. Think: CALM tea, CBD drops ( should I do a post ), a nighttime watermelon mask, lots of lemon water, my Kardashian blanket, & blue light glasses. Anyone else?

See you tomorrow- hope you all kick Monday’s ass.
