The power of Heat Shield!

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a great 2018 so far! I’ve been up and at ’em. If you haven’t already seen everywhere I’ve been announcing our Youtube channel has finally launched! In these videos I am always featuring my favorite products from L’ange Hair!

I wanted to dedicate this post all about the importance of Heat Shield on your hair! Before blow drying, before straightening, and before wanding I am always coating my hair with heat shield. Misting your hair with protection is so important to avoid heat damage-and i’m the Queen of damaged hair-haha

A few years back I remember a hair dresser telling me not putting heat protectant on my hair is like throwing a dessert in the oven without coating the pan with butter/oil- yikes?!

After falling in love with L’ange it became such a habit to throw on their heat shield, and aside from feeling comfortable with not damaging my hair, I fell in love with the smell, and how it made my hair feel!

I have noticed such a difference in my hair- after straightening it with Heat shield, I no longer have those stiff dry ends. And after wanding my hair, I don’t have those little fly aways.

 

Lastly, if you haven’t seen my video about their Purple Shampoo and Conditioner duo, you can see it here –> SUBSCRIBE!

No white after Labor Day?!

Hey! As always, I’ve taken a huge step back from this. I just pushed through mid terms, got super sick, then came my birthday and Halloween! I just turned 26 and I feel like a grandma….seriously I was in bed by 11 that night haha 

Overall though, I’ve been so proud of myself to be able to balance. I’ve balanced two crazy girls at home, 5 classes, weddings, other events, and still finding time for workouts and blogs! 

I received this outfit that was completely out-of-my-element, I originally wore it on my birthday, and totally felt like a nun. The usual me would take the shirt and pair it with a different bottom, or vice versa, buttttt I took the leap and went all out with all-white-everything.

I’ll keep this short and sweet! You can find this set at Style We

Triple threat 

Happy Wednesday! Happy October! I say this every time but it’s seriously been forever. I’m a busy bee, 5 classes is no joke, with 2 girls is even more hilarious: but needless to say I’m killin it! 

I’m working for an amazing brand right now (from home which is ideal), so I promised myself I would blog more and have the girls involved. I’ve gotten so many requests for the girls to be in the spotlight again and honestly how could I resist?! 

Avynn loves her photo taken, but Ivory was a whole different story haha- James was a trooper he kept chasing her then putting her in her “spot” and running out of the frame quickly


Cheetah/leopard made its way back on shelves and I’m not mad. I feel a sense of power wearing it, it’s so bold. The girls are animals so this was perfect for them 


I’ve had this top for years, and also I’m loving how faux leather is back! 

I tried to dress down my look with these slippers from Simply Vera Wang

Also, I love that I can dress this skirt up or down, with a blouse or a loose tee! 


Ave was in such a good mood she kept saying “Mama remember we used to blog when Ivory was in your belly?” Haha

I used to do anything to keep us out of the house while I was still pregnant  but having 2 girls is like having 20, I swear 

We grabbed some pretty cute shots, and how cute are their matching skirts from Old Navy?!You guys will also see a lot more of this bag! I’ve teamed up with Lily Jade-this is the chic-est diaper bag I’ve ever seen- obsessed! I’ll be posting on Instagram some amazing features it has!  

I’ll keep it short and sweet today- but I wanted to throw red into this blog set to symbolize the strength and power of family. Vegas is still in my thoughts and prayers, and it’s been so hard for me to shake. Hold your family and friends extra tight, all we need to spread is love more than anything. 

Mid-week Metallics

                                Hey hey!!
I’m already half way through my second week of classes-so I have bragging rights right now haha 

Wednesday’s have always been my favorite day of the week, mid-way through, and something always made me feel so accomplished waking up Wednesday mornings! Sadly this means September is half way gone, and summer is fading. This is my time for transition outfits: where I take choices and combine seasons. This usually happens in layers- that is why I loooooove Fall; L A Y E R S!!!

A friend of mine who I actually haven’t seen in years reached out to me explaining she just opened her first boutique! I was so excited for her and she sent me some goodies! Because I under went surgery this summer I honestly think I’ve been in a bathing suit maybe 5x. 

She sent me a few 1 pieces, and this one fit best ( although I never show the full details since I refuse to expose my stomach right now). I’ve recently also been rocking a pair of sunnies from her boutique as well, they can be seen on my Instagram in my most recent photos! At @kashaxmarie . 

Anyways, I love that the metallic one piece matched my metallic booties I snagged a few months back from ZARA . 

I feature these in a lot of photos because they remind me of a pair of rose gold metallic flats I had years ago, and I’m so glad my love for futuristic fashion is making a small spot light. 

I wore these to class yesterday and got stopped by so many girls! One told me, “this outfit is confident,” haha

You can find similar booties everywhere like Here …. Here …. Here ( I tried to give you guys some versatility)! 


Denim-on-denim will never stop (forewarning you now), so of course I took advantage of this once again as you can see. I treated the swim suit as a body suit which pictured looks like a bralette. 

You can find her boutique on Instagram at @24kclothing_ ( you will see more from her line on my Instagram)!


Next I wanted to talk about this jacket I’ve showcased a few times! Another friend of mine owns this company Jypsy! I’ve blogged about this brand in the past (I styled a red Adidas Jypsy bomber). 

I’m obsessed with this acid wash “Cotton Candy” jean jacket! I’ve been trying so hard to embrace color in my wardrobe! 

You can find/follow this brand here at @Jypsy.life 

As you can see in this photo 


my hair has some waves; I’ve been mentioning in several posts now that I’ve teamed up full-time with L’Ange Hair <—— that link gives you my insane discount code. I’ve never been the type to obsess over my hair, but it’s been so soft and fluffy! 

Feel free to ask me any questions about our products! To achieve the wavy look above I used the 25mm (1inch) Titanium blush wand! I can give you half off -like I said insaneeeee

I chose to layer my outfit to transition these summer-like pieces. My spray tan has faded, and my metallic sunnies went missing ; but overall this look was comfy and confident haha 


Back-to-fall

Hey guys!! 

Just wanted to say wowwwww it’s September 1st, and I’ve never felt happier to feel that breeze outside. Fall is my season, not just because of my birthday (October’s very own) haha 

I’m heading back-to-class in less than 1 week and it’s keeping my spirits high. It’s never too late to reach “old-goals” man. These goals are for my girls, and now finally for myself. 

Back-to-school means I’m more in a rush than usual (is that even possible?!) so as low-maintenance as I am…this means even less.

Lately I’ve been focusing on my beauty routine-I’ve been neglecting myself lately. Totally normal as a mom of two, but honestly it’s been making me feel a little down. So I decided to switch up my routine a little! I’m so used to throwing my platinum locks into a bun, and these bright blondes turned rose gold, then just a natural extreme root. Yikes

For a few months now I’ve been using products from a brand called L’Ange – one of my mom friends introduced me haha. 

After trying their products out I fell so in love with how much my hair has grown and how healthy it’s starting to look!!! I never thought it would be possible for growth and a healthy glow to take over my life again. And now my low-maintenance hair has a new life….

I’ve never favored my straight hair I’ve prayed for curls since birth haha but reallllllly.

I started using L’Ange’s 25mm wand and my hair has been even more low maintenance ( but finally with that “I-woke-up-early-and-spent-time-look.”

I still have an amazing discount code to offer to all of my readers, and ladies take.advantage.asap. 

If you want to watch my tutorial I did on their page you can head to my FB business page here 4O1FIERCE

If you don’t have an hour to watch me make a fool of myself you can make life easier by following this link to receive your special discount code and check out their site! Kasha x L’ange

My favorite go-to items for that low-maintenance schedule I’ve been boasting about are these guys:
This nourishing gloss is amazing on my ends…while my hair has been growing that dry damaged look- looks so shiny and feels so hydrated and healthy! The vitamins and minerals have literally healed my ends so I don’t have to chop my locks!

This guy has me in loveeeeeee

This is exactly how I get myself and my two girls ready in the morning-I skip morning showers haha I can literally get 3-day hair with this! 
And lastly, the star-of-the-show-this is their beautiful 25mm wand in blush! It’s so easy-to-use; I only use it twice a week and have a week of wavy hair! 

I have some more favorites to share with you guys, but that will be another post-this was all about low maintenance and my hair transformation!

No more roots! Ft. #Nutrafol 

Since I was younger Wednesdays have always been my favorite day of the week, I think mostly because I was halfway done, and felt accomplished! Looking forward to the weekend was obvious, and telling myself I ‘got through’ the beginning of the week made me confident! 

Who doesn’t love feeling great about themselves right? It’s very rare these days, but let me tell you, although a lot of confidence focuses on outer appearance and outer imagery; I feel true confidence has to excel from our inner! 

I’ve been so happy lately, landing a dream job, enrolling back in school, and becoming so proud that I am soon to be a mother of a 4 year old. Guys A FOUR YEAR OLD, haha – We did it! 

A few months back I was given the opportunity to review a supplement from a company who noticed how platinum my hair was. Being blonde is the biggest addiction. The most damaging process is usually followed by a HUGE smile though! 

After keeping up with my bold-platinum-look throughout my entire pregnancy with Ivory, I unfortunately (but obviously) had to chop my locks! 

The outcome was bright, crisp, and chic! Here is what it looked like! 


I decided to start the Nutrafol hair vitamins as soon as I had fresh hair, in order to track my hair growth results! 

As the bottle indicated, I took 4 capsules a day with food! I feel it’s always most important and beneficial with food, as I did with my Prenatal vitamins! 

I received 2 bottles and just two weeks into the first bottle I noticed insane results! My nails were super hard, long, and had the whitest tips! But most importantly my roots started peeking through-I was so shocked! 

Don’t get me wrong, everyone’s hair grows at different rates but after finishing my capsules I was growing strong, smooth hair! 

I could not be happier with my results look at this!!! 


                           ROOTS.FOR.DAYS!!! 

I had to go visit my favorite girl Alexa! She’s given me my perfect shade since over 3 years ago when I decided to go platinum-silver! 

You can see all of her work and give her a follow over at Complex Beauty !! 

After we discussed all of my hair goals I’ve never left the salon more satisfied! 

 Look at this length! And can’t forget to brag about how beautiful this icy shade is! 


These results are from 8 weeks, taking 4 capsules a day as I’ve mentioned! My hair did justtttt touched my shoulders before!! 

​Healthy hair, skin, and nails are the top necessities that make any woman happy! My nails look like acrylics without the damage and cost! 
Head over to Nutrafol to start your journey with confidence! 

All Black, always 

I don’t think even 90* weather will ever phase me to stay away from rockin all black-all day! Today was another gorgeous one here in the 401! 

Avynn was a crankster all day, so we had to get her out of the house (terrible 3’s are at the ultimate peak)!!!!! 

A few days ago I received a beauty in the mail! A company called PoppySeed Clothing was nice enough to let me blog for them! When they found out I was expecting another little girl they introduced me to their “Zipper Dress.” What I love about this dress is the length, stretch, and the versitility! You can un-zip to give the dress a more casual feel, or wear it right to the ankles, tight-with a little mermaid flare!

   
 

   
Also, if you haven’t noticed I chopped 2 more inches off of my hair! Lightening it and always keeping it in a tight bun has really put some damage on my locks! I went over to JK Hair Salon which is right in North Kingstown-literally 3 minutes from my house! I went to see a friend of mine (who does 💣.com work) and I told her to give me the “Hilary Duff!” I’m so so in love with the choppy look + of course how healthy my locks feel now! To see more of my friend Alexa’s work, you can follow her on Instagram ➡️ Complex Beauty and don’t forget to give her page a 👍🏼 on Facebook ➡️ CompLEX Beauty !

    
    
    
    
^^ And as you can see above, Avynn was too much of a diva to jump in photos with mommy today, she wanted to capture me instead 😂

I am obsessed with the story behind the making of this dress, and how they named their company! Your baby is usually the side of a Poppyseed when you find out you’re pregnant, and this dress was especially designed for my fellow mommas!

This dress comes in Black and also in Navy! Check out Poppyseed Clothing and make sure to follow them on Instagram ➡️ Poppyseed Co
