True Grit Fall has officially arrived, and what better to tackle it than in style? Today I'm giving away my favorite fall piece from True Grit!

This hooded jacket is softer than literally anything you've ever felt, and looks just as cute on! It's tough for me not to keep this one for myself.

Retailing at $140, this bad boy could be yours! To enter, just @YourStylistAJ on instagram and leave a comment below this post with what your favorite thing about fall is! Mine is definitely new layers of cozy, and grande non-fat lattes at 130 degrees. Yes. (Entries must be in by Tuesday 9am CT) 

Good luck!

Update & Giveaway!

Beauty Box Giveaway Well to say it's been a while since my last blog post would be stating the obvious. I miss you guys!!

June and July kicked my butt! I had six weddings in June alone, and worked overtime in the salon, traveled to see Sammy, and the blog just naturally fell to the back burner.

As I gear up for August, I'm implementing healthy changes. I'm excited to say that I will no longer be working more than 40 hours in the salon. Between weddings and the salon, I have been logging in 60-80 hours a week, and though I LOVE my job, with it comes physical stress. That physical stress has left me waking up in tears from joint pain, and with little to no time left over to fit in exercise.

It's time to make myself a priority. I don't want to get burnt out, I want to work as long as it makes me happy, and I doubt that time will ever run out, IF I take care of myself.

One of the blogging perks, that hasn't slowed down even though I haven't been posting, is smell-good-snail-mail! I am blown away by the generosity of the beauty industry! I've finally taken the time to try out a bajillion products, and would love to share what I think of them with you! But first, I'd love to give you some to try yourself!

I'm psyched for this Beauty Box Giveaway! In it one lucky lady will receive:

  • Color WOW Shampoo and Conditioner (HOW have I never tried these products before. Just wait 'til I share they're Root Cover Up with you!)
  • Real Chemistry Luminous 3 Minute Peel AND Environmental Rescue Mask (The best face mask I've ever used. Period.)
  • Muk Argan Oil Shine Spray (Fancy!)
  • Murad Refreshing Cleanser (I'm jealous of whoever wins this.)
  • Soften Her Exfoliating Pads (Ingrown hair - beware. These lady exfoliant pads are magic.)
  • Aveda Energizing Body Cleanser and Volumizing Tonic (Lovely little travel buddies.)
  • Crest 3D Whitening Mouthwash (Fresh breath AND whitening. Double. Whammy.)

Stay tuned for my full reviews and tutorials coming soon!

Getting Organized ...(a giveaway)

photo  

Owning a business, working 40 hours a week for someone else's, and working for the family business, all while dating long distance, AND wanting a social life... um. what. 

Here I am, admitting, I have felt a bit unorganized lately. The frustrating part was not being able to pinpoint what wasn't working. I follow a structured procedure with my business and lifestyle, but I'm human, and was overlooking e-mails and rescheduling dinner dates with girlfriends.

I realized that no matter how dated it seems, I needed an old school planner. I tried keeping track of my life with my iPhone, iPad and iMac, and you'd think those three powerful tools would make me feel on top of it. Wrong. I really tried to think back to the last time I felt 100% on top of everything, and it was last year, when I kept everyyyything I needed to know written down. SO, I ordered a custom planner.

There's something magical about physically crossing things off a to-do list, and don't even get me started on post-its!

How do YOU stay organized?

Please leave a comment below spilling your best tip, and one person will win a complimentary BLOW OUT & KERASTASE DEEP TREATMENT, ($95 value) with me at Thomas West Salon!
