Mornings are an important part of my day. I like to wake up early and wake up slow then fill the early hours with things that make me feel good: a cuddle session, hot water with lemon, a short walk, nutrient packed smoothies and an extra hot shower which is where I set my intentions (Pharrell and Paul McCartney do the same). What does that mean? Simply put, it’s like mapping out my thoughts and and actions for the day.
I’m not the only one who prioritizes a hot shower. Herbal Essences recently did a ‘Shower Power Survey’ and they found that nine out of 10 American women agree that taking time to enjoy their morning shower transforms the rest of their day AND that it is one of the few times during the day where they get to truly “escape.” Furthermore, 65% of American women think skipping a shower would have a worse impact on their day than skipping breakfast. They discovered that after an enjoyable shower experience 69% of women feel relaxed, 56% feel prepared for the day, 52% feel happy and 50% feel attractive.
Because the shower experience is such an important part of my day, the products I use are too. So, when Herbal Essences challenged me use their Wild Naturals shampoo/conditioner over the course of one week I was game. I had used Herbal Essences products in the past and loved how rejuvenating and energizing they made me feel.

You know what’s fun? Heading to Palm Springs for a photo shoot with WhoWhatWear and essie to shoot my favorite summer nail polishes. That’s what!
A few weeks back we did just that and today the editorial hit the WWW. Dressed in some of my favorite pieces, we played with this summers must-have hues ranging from saltwater blues to bright yellows and classic summer peach. These unexpected colors add a great punch to summer outfits, don’t they?
To accompany the editorial I did a little interview and talked about my summer packing tips and tricks – you can check it out here. Hope you enjoy! More of the photo shoot after the jump!
