Keratin shampoos and conditioners, hair masks, styling cremes...in my quest to tame my tresses, I gravitate towards anything with the words "moisturizing," "smoothing" and "frizz-fighting" in the name, but all these formulas have resulted in product build-up that leaves my strands dull and my roots limp. Luckily for this beauty blogger, LUSH Rehab Shampoo ($13.95-39.95, various sizes) is just what the hair doctor ordered.

I never wake up motivated or organized enough to apply eyeshadow as part of my daily makeup look. It's just too much work, and frankly, I'd rather hit the snooze alarm one more time. One way to make eyeshadow less of a hassle is to get a goes-with-everything neutrals palette that corrals together primer, tools, shades, and liner; the other way is with an eyeshadow crayon, like the newly launched ILIA Siliken Shadow Stick ($37 each at BeautyMark).

Since I KonMari-ified my life and stopped outfit blogging regularly, I've been doing more closet-purging than shopping for new clothes. But one piece I couldn't resist picking up was a floral print shirt dress which I spotted at Dynamite's press preview earlier this fall. One of Dynamite's reps told me it was the bestselling dress of the season, and it was easy to see why. The wintry floral feels seasonal and a bit dressier than plaid or a solid colour, plus it lends visual interest to any outfit; the silhouette is loose yet flattering; the sleeves keep chilly arms covered.
