How To Amp Up Your Hairstyle to Get Waves Like Beyonce's 2014 VMA Red Carpet Look

This post was sponsored by Global Influence. All opinions are my own.

Did you watch the 2014 MTV VMA's last weekend? I have watched since I was a teenager, but I must admit that I only caught bits and pieces of it this year.

I did get a chance to see Beyonce, though! She looked amazing! She always seems to look flawless, and I particularly enjoyed her long, loose, rockstar waves. 


I used TRESemme products to achieve a similar look for a girls/moms night out this week. My hair is super straight, so I started out with day-old hair, instead of freshly washed tresses. First, I worked some Flawless Curls Extra Hold Mousse through my hair and let it dry. 

Then, using a curling wand, I curled sections of my hair randomly, in different directions. I wanted it to be a loose, disorganized look. Once the hair was curled, I finished it off with TRESemme Tres Two Mega Firm Freeze Control Hair Spray. I especially like that this hair spray is fast-drying and humidity-resistant for up to 24 hours, since South Florida is so humid!


Add a little make-up, a dress, and heels, and I was ready for girls night with my best friend! 


Walmart and TRESemme have teamed up to help you get salon gorgeous hair this VMA season.

Happy Family Organic Superfoods - Happy Child Organic Super Nutrition Shake Review - Yum!




We LOVE Happy Family in this house. Currently, Little J is eating Happy Yogi's as I type this. 

Our newest favorite is the Happy Child Organic Super Nutrition Shake. They are available in chocolate and vanilla, and have no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. They contain 8 organic fruits and vegetables,  and contain 8g of protein, 3g of fiber, and 21 vitamins and minerals to help round out your toddlers diet. 

Little J could not wait to get his hands on the Super Nutrition Shakes when our big red Happy Family box came in the mail!


We received the chocolate and the vanilla, and a very awesome Happy Family cool-pouch to keep the shakes cold on-the-go.


Little J really enjoyed the shakes. He thought they were delicious, and fun to drink out of the box. 

As a parent, I liked that he was getting so much extra nutrition in his diet. Kids can't live on just cheese and grapes, after all ;)

So, I was thrilled to find out that one of my new favorite restaurants in Coral Springs, Nick's New Have Style Pizzeria & Bar, now offers a "Kids Eat Free" Day!

My mom and I recently were able to try Nick's before their Coral Springs grand opening, and we instantly fell in love. I had never been to their Boca Raton location, so I was really looking forward to tasting all of their amazing food. 


Nick's menu is filled with Italian delights such as: fried calamari, bruschetta, a great pasta selection, tasty salads, chicken francese, chicken and sausage scarpariello, and of course, a huge pizza selection made in their unique brick oven. 

The drinks and desserts on Nick's New Haven Style Pizzeria & Bar menu are out-of-this-world!! I could seriously just go there to make a meal out of all of the beautiful beverages and desserts they create. 

There is also a private dining room available for parties, and an extensive wine cellar.
