4 Creative Ways to Style Silk Scarves

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today, we’re talking scarves!  I love me some scarves!  Most of the time I just wear them around my neck and call it a day.  That’s only scratching the surface, though, especially when it comes to silk scarves.  Let’s see how we can step up our scarf game, shall we?
Purse Strap Cover
Want to step up your scarf game and your purse game?  We can do that.  Simply take the silky scarf and wrap it around the strap of the purse.  That’s it!  So easy and such a fabulous way to update the look of your purse!
This is probably something we’ve all seen, but it’s worth mentioning here.  Silk scarves are such a great way to tie back your hair.  I love letting the tail of the scarf hang down my back for a fun, unexpected look, too.
Purse Bow
Again with the purse, but it’s so easy!  Simply tie a bow on the bottom of the purse strap and you have a cute and easy accessory for your purse!
Flight Attendant Inspired Necktie
This is a great way to wear scarves in the summer.  Just tie the scarf around your neck a la flight attendant and that’s it.  
What are your unconventional ways to style silk scarves?

The Secret to Fabulous Hair

Fabulous Finds Friday

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Hair beauty tips product review

Today, let’s talk secrets again.  We’ve been sharing a lot of secrets lately.  Last week it was the Secret to Soft Hands and this week it’s the Secret to Fabulous Hair.  To all the fine haired girls out there, this one’s especially for you!

Today’s secret was discovered a few months ago at my sis-in-law’s wedding.  I was getting my hair done and the stylist asked if my hair holds a curl.  My hair stay curled?  Ha!  No way, man!  Then, she pulled out a magic potion.  No joke, my hair stayed curled for 3 days!!!  I’ve never been able to hold a curl for 3 hours let alone 3 days.  What is this magical potion you ask?  It’s a texturizer!  I can’t believe I’ve gone 30+ years without knowing this secret!  My favorite so far is the Garnier Fructis Texture Tease Spray (find it here).  I’ve also tried and enjoyed the Not Your Mother’s Double Take Texture Spray (find it here).  I’m so happy the stylist that day finally showed me how to do my hair.  I’ll never leave home without it again!

2017 Talk Fabulous Awards

Fabulous Finds Friday

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Can you believe 2017 is over?!?!  I certainly can’t. I thought it might be fun to start off this year by reflecting on my favorite things from last year.  Most of these I’ve talked about in a previous Fabulous Finds Fridays.  Hopefully, this will help you make easier decisions when purchasing beauty products.  These are listed in no particular order.  Let’s get into it!

Jazzy Jasmine will be helping us out today!

This is my favorite dry shampoo!  It works great without leaving that annoying white cast.  Plus, it’s inexpensive.  This girl is living on dry shampoo these days, so having a cheap option that works great is the best of both worlds!  Check out my full Dry Shampoo Review here.

This moisturizer is amazing for my oily skin!  It’s hydrating without being overly oily.  The pump is awesome and allows for some serious control over how much product you’re applying.  One pump is perfect for me during the summer.  Two pumps are just the right amount during the spring and fall.  In the depths of winter, I use three pumps.  It looks flawless under makeup and it’s just fabulous! Check out my full review here.

Every time I try a new concealer, I always find my way back to this one. It’s just so good.  The applicator is pretty much foolproof as it’s just a puff that you slide over your face.  Easy and fabulous!  Check out my full review here.

This mascara is on point!  The formula is so easy to work with and leaves your lashes looking full and voluminous.  If you haven’t tried this yet, get in your car, drive to your nearest drugstore, and pick this up!  Check out my full review here.

Don’t be fooled by the low price tag on this stuff.  I avoided this for a long time thinking “Can a foundation that’s $6 really be good?”  The answer is yes, yes it can.  The finish is truly flawless and leaves your face looking bright and healthy.  I get so many compliments on my skin when I wear this product.  When you’re at your local drugstore picking up the Lash Paradise, pick this up too!  I talked about this foundation in my Beauty Favorites post here

These lipsticks are simply beautiful!  The formula is matte, but not drying.  They’re comfortable to wear and don’t budge (unless you’re eating some oily food).  Some of my favorite colors are Rebel Rose, Berry Recognize, and Missy and Fierce.  Check out my full review here.

Just like the Wet n Wild MegaLast lipstick above, this nail polish has some serious staying power.  Want your nail polish to last for days on end without paying an arm and a leg?  Cool, me too!  This is the nail polish for us!  Check out my full review here.

That’s it for the 2017 Talk Fabulous Awards!  What are your favorite products from 2017?

Thanks for stopping by!  See you in my next post!

Fabulous Finds Friday: Dry Shampoo Review

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today on Fabulous Finds Friday, we’re reviewing dry shampoos.  Dry shampoo is a staple in my hair routine in the winter.  I have extremely oily hair, but I don’t like to wash it every day during the winter. This is partly because I don’t want to dry it out and mostly because I’m lazy.  Dry shampoo is also great for adding extra volume to flat, lifeless hair.  This is primarily how I use it during the summer. When considering my reviews, please remember I have oily, flat, straight, blonde hair.  Just because these products work well for my hair type, they may not work for your hair type and vice versa.  All the products today are in the $3-$5 range and can be found at any drugstore. With that, let’s get into it!
First up is the Dove Refresh + Care Volume and Fullness Dry Shampoo (find it here).   This is one of my favorites.  It leaves the hair nice and refreshed and has a subtle scent.  This product does leave a bit of a white cast, so for my brunette girls out there, be careful.  Although, I have heard girls with dark hair give this a glowing review.  At any rate, it’s worth a try.  I can usually find this at Target and I would highly recommend it!
Next, is the Suave Professionals Refresh and Revive Dry Shampoo (find it here).  This is another favorite of mine.  It’s very similar to the Dove dry shampoo as it also leaves the hair nice and refreshed with a subtle scent.  This product has a major white cast so I would steer clear if you have darker hair.  Finding this one can be a bit of challenge.  It’s hit or miss at Target.  I can almost always find it at Wal-Mart.  I can always find it at my local grocery store, and who doesn’t love a little one-stop shopping! If you have light hair, I would highly recommend the Suave dry shampoo!

Let’s talk about the Pantene Pro-V Blowout Extend Dry Shampoo (find it here).  This is another favorite.  For all the dark hair girls out there, this one’s for you!  This product has no white cast, so it is suitable for all hair colors.  This also leaves the hair feeling nice and refreshed with a subtle scent. I can usually find this at Target or any major drugstore.  If you’re looking for a dry shampoo that will leave your hair feeling refreshed without leaving a white cast, I recommend this one!

Next up is the Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo (find it here).  I actually had a hard time finding this online, so I’m not sure it’s available anymore.  The link is to Target and it lists this product at $9, which is not what I remember paying for it.  No matter, because you don’t need to go out and find it anyway.  It works okay, but it has an extremely strong scent.  The hubby thought I had rubbed alcohol on my hair.  That’s not what I was going for in my scent that day.  This is a pass.

Finally, let’s talk about the TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo (find it here).  I love TRESemme hair products.  This one, though, was not a win for me.  It felt overly wet when applying and didn’t dry down quickly.  Maybe I got a bad batch?  If you’ve tried this and had better luck, let me know in the comments below.  Otherwise, this is a pass.

Do you use dry shampoo?  What’s your favorite?

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!  See you guys in my next post!
