Making Caramels with Mom

I’m winding down from a busy few months and feeling very grateful for this holiday season to be upon us. I’m looking forward to more time with family, looser schedules, and lots of fun.

Miranda Frye launched a fine jewelry collection and it is gorgeous!

This is a pretty color of these stretch, beaded bracelets.

Cute and comfy jumpsuit with a unique sleeve detail!

If you’re looking for a very discreet nylon sock to wear with booties or any shoe in the winter that may show some skin, these are great!

My MIL has very short fine/thick hair that she velcro rolls with no heat. I am looking for product advice; rather than using a “can” of hairspray a day to keep it in place, is there a styling product or type that she could apply to her wet hair before rolling that would help with the hold and avoid the need for her to use soo much hairspray? TIA!
