I wanted to recreate someone’s look from the Oscars and I thought Kiera Knightleys hair was so simple and romantic so I teamed up with ghd to recreate it today and give you guys a coupon code for ghd hot tools! I used a straightener for this look and I didn’t wear any extensions since her hair is a tad shorter than mine and they are just really simple and pretty curls for everyday.

I am sure you can tell by now but ghd tools are my favorite to use, by far! They are giving all of you 20% off until March 31st when you use code ghdbarefootblonde at checkout! *only valid in US right now

I wore these curls for a day in Santa Barbara with my boys. We got a yummy lunch and hung out on the boardwalk and then headed to the beach! We are going back to NYC today and I am dreading the flight haha but I am excited to get back to NYC and see our pup! Just in time for his birthday too 🙂 OH! and in case you didn’t see on my twitter, I contacted instagram about my account being deleted and later that day I got an email that said it was reinstated! Yay!! I was so worried because I have heard of a lot of people not getting theirs back but I guess I worried for nothing!

Have a good weekend everyone! xox

  1. I LOVE your hair and have been trying to get this look down for years! Every time I curl my hair its never looks beachy and wavy. I attempted to use my straightener (although my straightener is old) and definitely failed at getting this look. It looked like I attempted to crimp my hair.

    I have two questions for you- 1. Do you happen to live in NYC / ever do other peoples hairs for events? I have a wedding in a few weeks and this is the exact style I want. 2. Would you recommend buying the ghd straighener over the classic wave wand?

  2. What is the point of any woman..let alone a mother…to wear that much makeup, fake lashes and fake hair to the beach with her family? Like…why?? Sorry…I’m sure you don’t need ALL that stuff caked on to look pretty. I understand you are blogging about fashion and beauty but just a word of advice, maybe tone it down and embrace your natural beauty…

    1. Honestly, I just became a mom and I do waay more with myself now then I ever did before. I don’t know if it’s the same for her but, I just love the way it feels to look pretty cause it’s so easy to just look crappy. It’s also nice to establish a routine where you get ready everyday. It’s hard to explain but, it’s just nice to do something nice for you.

    1. Thanks girl! So sweet! Sometimes I need photos to give me the same reminder! ha

  3. Loved watching this tutorial! I’ve heard so much about curling your hair with a straightner but was never able to get the method down. Your video made it so easy to understand and it will definitely be a go-to hairstyle for me from now on. As always, beautiful pictures and a beautiful family 🙂

    1. Really? Oh yay great! I’m glad you liked it and that it was easy to follow! Thanks girl!

    1. Thanks girl, obviously it’s hard to pull off the whole look as elegantly as she does, but I’m glad you liked it!

  6. Question. Do you use a blog planner? If so, what kind? Maybe a walk-through on YouTube showing how your blog planner works?

    1. Thanks for the question! I actually don’t but just keep a pretty detailed calendar. Hope this helps!

    1. Yes practice makes perfect! Just keep doing it and you’ll get it down!

    I’m so envious of that beach. I won’t see one for months here in Canada.
