Big Night Out

Cate Mezyk - August 21, 2013

This past Thursday I was thrilled to be able to host a party for Ann Taylor and Birchbox, to celebrate their August collaboration. When two amazing companies like that ask you to work with them, you don’t hesitate – you just say ‘yes!’ It was a great success and I’m so glad to have been a part of the festivities. It was fun to meet …

The Crazy Lady

Cate Mezyk - July 17, 2013

The other day I came walking down my steps, all set to head to the store with my kids. I’m ready to go and feeling good. And Avery (my oldest), says to me, “Mom, you’ve got a necklace in your hair.” Blink, blink. “Yep,” I say. “I know.” “But mom. It’s a necklace.” “Yeah,” I say. “I like it! I think it’s fun.” “Okaaay,” my …

Live From My Bathroom

Cate Mezyk - July 2, 2013

I’ve been wearing braids non-stop this summer, as I’ve said before. Everywhere I go, I get asked how I do them, and in particular, people want to know how to do a fish tail braid. Thanks to my super star videographer Avery, I made an instructional vlog to show you just how easy it is (it’s been a long time since I’ve done a vlog!). …

Crazy Hair Day

Cate Mezyk - June 26, 2013

My daughter’s school has crazy hair day every year, but boy-oh-boy – those kids have nothin’ on my crazy hair in all this humidity. I would win the contest hands down with the hot mess going on up on the top of my head. The other day I thought I’d just go with it and let it dry on its own. It’s got natural wave …

Yesterday was my birthday. I love birthdays. I mean, LOVE birthdays. What is more fun than a day to celebrate yourself?! But what I love even more is giving gifts.

Jose Eber Review and Giveaway!

Cate Mezyk - April 8, 2013

A long while back, I showed you how I curl my hair each day. What I didn’t mention is that I had gotten so frustrated with my curling iron, I started using my flat iron to do it instead. The clip on the barrel kept getting in the way of the perfect curl. Enter the Jose Eber Clipless Trio. Not only does it not have …

DIY Braided Waves

Cate Mezyk - January 29, 2013

After my latest session with Emilie, I learned that ringlets are out, and softer waves are in. Well, heck – I’ve been wearing beachy wavy style ringlet curls for awhile now. I’d better switch it up, right? I’ve seen others trying out this braid and flat iron technique, so I figured – why not give it a shot? What did I have to lose? Step …
