Beautiful Brick Barn Aisle Stable Style Stable Style: Hemlock Lane at Valley High

 

A couple of weeks ago you were introduced to a stunning tack room belonging to the one and only Rebecca of Rebecca Ray Designs. You may view that feature here. Today I am sharing a few more photos of the barn’s beautiful interior. Welcome to Hemlock Lane at Valley High. If you want a little more background on the planning and design that went into this stable please read Rebecca’s blog post on the farm here.

The barn is home to several lucky horses, don’t you think?

Holiday Hair with Conair

Conair Infiniti Products Horses Heels Holiday Hair with ConairI’ve always been slightly jealous of girls with naturally curly hair, those beautiful and effortless waves seem so perfect. So when I had the chance to try out the Infiniti Pro by Conair 3Q Styling Tool and the Infinity Pro by Conair Secret Curl, I was thrilled. The month of December is filled with holiday parties and family get togethers so looking your best is an absolute must. I have also felt like I have been in a “hair rut” lately. I just moved to NYC and was feeling like my usual look was a bit boring.

Just a little word to the wise if you see a hairstyle you want to try for a party, do a test run. A test run is an essential for pulling off something successful especially if you haven’t tried it before. I have been “practicing” on my hair the past few days.

Holiday Hair with Conair Holiday Hair with ConairHere is my holiday hair, slight curls on the bottom with dramatic curls on the front.

I have naturally straight hair and lots of it, this means it normally takes a very long time for my hair to dry. I was pleasantly surprised by the Infinity Pro by Conair 3Q Styling Tool – it was very quiet and the overall temperature is low and does not burn your neck or scalp throughout the drying process. In fact this new technology reduces drying time by up to 70% with lower temperature and faster airflow to minimize heat damage. This also means you are not damaging your hair with high levels of heat. Another positive about this dryer is that it doesn’t cause your hair to tangle, my fine and thick hair would always tangle and knot throughout the drying process but this didn’t happen here.

After you give yourself a perfect dry it is time to work on those curls. Plug in the Infinity Pro by Conair Secret Curl and give it about 10 minutes to warm up. Once the curlers are hot and ready start wrapping 1 inch sections of your hair until you are done. Allow the rollers to cool completely before removing them. The rollers come in two sizes, 3/4 inch and 1 inch for small or medium curls.

The nice thing about the Conair Secret Curl is that it’s super fast to use. After a little bit of practice you can easily get your rolling time down to around ten minutes and this is a win in my book. The Infinity Pro by Conair Secret Curl features a sleek design which you can easily transport, it takes up minimal counter space (perfect for small apartments) and heats up quickly for fast and flawless styling.

For the Dog: Mango’s Holiday Wish List

Mango cream colored Pomeranium For the Dog: Mangos Holiday Wish List

 For the Dog: Mangos Holiday Wish List


If your dog is a highly valued member of the family, you’ve probably spend some time thinking about what they might “want for Christmas”. The reality is they probably just want the following; more food and treats, more attention and more playtime. But just for fun I consulted Mango on her list and came up with some great gift ideas for the four legged family members.

I was inspired to create this post after a few items from the Yahoo! Style Gift Guides caught my eye, naturally I browsing through their For The Dogs Gift Guide. Yahoo! Style has 19 days of gift guides so far including a guide for the cat lover and budget buys under $5.

Below are a few things Mango came up with, be sure to visit Yahoo! Style and read through the Dog Gift Guide for more ideas.

Snow & Sequins

Winter Fun Horses Heels Snow & Sequins

In partnership with Zappos I styled my new Paige jeans and Freebird boots with some sequins and a brown blazer. It’s amazing how the weather can change so much in a month. You might remember this post, Falling For Neutrals as my first outfit post with Paige Jeans and Freebird boots, that was a warm and beautiful day. 

This time Mango and I had a little snowball fight with the first snow of the year.

Mango cream colored Pomeranium Snow & SequinsI throw snowballs and Mango chases them.

Raquel and her beloved Pom Mango Snow & SequinsIsn’t she precious?

Freebird Boots in Natural Snow & SequinsIt’s amazing how much I’ve been wearing these Freebird Lasso short boots in natural, they are awesome. Freebird Boots use traditional Goodyear construction, in which stacks of leather are hammered together and carefully stitched to create a virtually indestructible sole. This technique has been used on high quality boot creation for years.

Sequined top and brown blazer Snow & SequinsZappos is a great place for online shopping, they started their business with just footwear but have expanded into clothing, accessories and more. Shipping is always free and fast so if you are procrastinating for Christmas… HURRY UP or visit Zappos online to take some of the pressure off. In fact, Zappos has a great holiday gift guide that I thought I would share with you – check that out over here.

Paige Denim Jeans1 Snow & SequinsThese zippers have been getting so many compliments lately on my jeans. I’m wearing Paige Edgemont Ultra Skinny Armstrong in No Whiskers. Paige Denim is a growing brand who only works with the best wash-houses in Los Angeles and are constantly testing their denim. Paige Adams – Geller is the only female founder in the denim industry today.
