It isn’t a party without …

Pixie Dust Sprinkles…

I recently discovered on Instagram a Florida owned company that offers these Pixie Dust Sprinkles in a variety of hues. Some of my favorites are: A luxurious Sea Glass that gives me a walk on the beach or mermaid vibes. a gorgeous mix of metallic and patriotic themed hues of God Bless America and a blend of sophisticated hues of Luxe Vibes.

I LOVE ๐Ÿ’— anything that sparkles,glows or is color filled. I also love to throw a party in my home or business. Even if it for a party of two. Every day we wake up is a reason to celebrate. Right?

Not your ordinary sprinkles they add FUN to any kitchen creation. I have played with my little nieces and nephews and test drove them on my husband. All passed with flying colors! This weekend I am going to dip some champagne flutes and celebrate something bubbly in style. The kids will love a pretty glass of pixie dust rimmed glasses too. Why not try them embellishing a glass of Aloha punch or yummy pink lemonade for the kids.

I also like them on:

Mini Cupcakes

A slice of banana topped with whipped cream or peanut butter or honey

Cake

Waffles

Pancakes

French Toast

Pies

Sprinkle on top of a bowl of popcorn

Or simply placed them a decor on the plate when serving dessert like gelato or ice cream.

The skies the limit. Use your imagination and have some fun with your family and the kids.

Let’s have fun and create some pixie dust magic in our kitchens this long beautiful weekend!

Lucky you I have some great tips from a hot stylist just for you. I never know how she is going to look. She is like a rainbow of hair personalities and hair cuts. ISN’T SHE GORGEOUS? Now enjoy her simple mane secrets and trends she wants to share with you.

What do you think is the secret for shiny fabulous bombshell hair?
1. I Always recommend you use a good conditioner or leave in treatment and a heat protectant before styling hair with heat. Then a great shine spray to top it off.
What’s hot for fall in hair this year?
2. The latest hair trends this season are the ombre and the long bob. The ombre is great for those clients who don’t want the hassle of coming every 6 weeks for a touch up. It will grow out and still look beautiful. The long bob gives you a classic look with out all the weight of long hair.
What colors rule and are rocking on the runway?
3. Red is in this fall . Auburn, reds, and mahogany colors are a great fall trends. They also work well when blended into an ombre.
Is a deep conditioning treatment for everyone’s hair?
4. Depends on client and environment conditions . Dryer environments and hair more frequent.
What products do you LOVE and are you professionally recommending for hair?
5. Chocolate Blonde highlights shampoo is a great highlight shampoo for blondes to keep brassy highlights at bay. Followed up with Color Artistry protein conditioner as a leave in treatment.
