Anne Hathaway is looking even more fabulous than usual in this photo. I can’t remember if this was the SAG awards? Or maybe some fashion event? Either way, she’s stunning.

And Drew Barrymore’s overall look from the SAGs is too cute. I love her messy updo and her soft makeup. And the Monique L’Huillier gown is one of my favorites from the recent awards season.

Product Rave: Stila Smudge Pots

Girls, I have a new crush, and it’s the Stila smudge pot. In a variety of shades, it’s like the most perfect gel eyeliner or creamy eyeshadow. I like using it with a fine brush like this one, also from Stila — I bought two different shades this weekend at Sephora – the Grey is just perfect as an eyeliner, but my most fave is the Kitten shade. I’ve worn Kitten for a long time in their eyeshadow version. It’s such a gorgeous shade and is perfect for day or night. In the smudge pot version, it’s creamy enough to apply with your fingers. Too fun!

YIPPEE! I love getting my hair cut. The past few months I've been letting my crazy mop grow, uninhibited, but I was getting really sick of it. My hair is very thick, and wavy in the back. This makes for a constant (hot) fight. Especially in the summers here in Oklahoma when there's lotsa humidity. 

I knew that it was time to cut it all off again. So when I was perusing new fave Hair Thursday, I stumbled on this photo below and promptly fell in love. So I emailed it to myself and then showed it to Linda, my stylist, today. She loved it – this girl has such a cute cut and such pretty color. And while I didn't tweak my color today, I did let her cut away!

I don't have any really great photos yet of my hair — it's hard to grab a good angle of yourself w/ an iPhone.

Volume 3.6 : Hair Thursday.

More photos later — next week, I'll be back with more tales of straightening crazy wavy hair!
