Kasey's Cravings: Back To Cool 2014

I don't know about you but it feels like I blinked and the Summer was over! Maybe that's because they start playing back to school commercials and putting out Halloween decorations in July. Either way, it's time to trade Pina Coladas for Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, pack away the bikinis and bust out the boots! 

Granted I've outgrown the days of having the start of September mean new wardrobes, locker accessories, and trapper-keepers (do kids even call it that anymore?) but that doesn't mean I can't create a list of must-haves that will help make that transition into Fall a little bit easier! Oh, and of course I have some great deals and a giveaway for you too!

Beachwaver by Sarah Potempo

I've been asked many times how I get my hair to be wavy and STAY wavy. I'll be honest, I first figured out how to do it by accident. Back in college I would have to do my hair for our newscasts and when I didn't have time to put in a full head of rollers, I tried just wrapping my hair around my curling iron. And what do you know, it worked! 

Now, when I tell a lot of people this they always say, "I've tried that but I can never get it to work!". Well, today's your lucky day peeps. No need to spend hours in the salt water to get those beachy waves or hours in the salon for that perfect pin curl. Introducing the Beachwaver by Sarah Potempa



Beachwaver Pro - Professional Rotating Curling Iron, winner of Allure Best of Beauty Award 

This new glam gadget takes the guess work out of the basic curling wand. Boasting a short hair clamp, rotating wand and electronic settings, the Beachwaver helps you get to Sexy Temptress rather than Shirley Temple (...RIP).

I had the pleasure of meeting Sam and Nic Chapman, the ladies behind Real Techniques a few months back at a lovely rooftop soiree in Beverly Hills. We sipped on Strawberry Mojitos, noshed on fantastic finger food and chatted about the latest trends with a dozen other lovely bloggers.
