    I’m simply dying over those sandals. Wish I could justify the cost.

    I loveit all. I am desperate to go for surf spray — is Bumble and bumble really the best? What makes it so? I’ve never tried it yet.

    LOVE that hair! And I just bought the B&B surf spray a few weeks ago. I thought I would be disappointed and that it would all turn out to be just hype, but the stuff is amazing! My hair is really straight, but I spray it on damp hair and then messily toss it up in some clips and when it comes down it is effortless beachy wavy messiness!
