One of the craziest fashion red carpets of the year, the VMAs happened this past Sunday and included a slew of interesting fashion choices. While a lot of them were admirable, these are my top 5 from the event.
Jennifer Lopez in Versace
J.Lo slays again on the red carpet in Versace. The recipient of this year's Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, she did it in perfect style.
Amandla Stenberg in Prada
Amandla definitely stayed away from the crazier fashion statements that the VMAs are known for. I love this pared back Prada look that is perfect inspo for the upcoming fall season.
Chloe and Halle Bailey in Iris Van Herpen
The sister duo Chloe x Halle rocked coordinating looks that represent a classy version of the 2018 naked dress.
Millie Bobby Brown in Rosie Assoulin
The Stranger Things star never fails to impress on the red carpet. This look left me wondering where I can get my own jumpsuit like this to wear once I have my pre-baby body back again.
Cardi B in Nicolas Jebran
All I can say is that this is a glorious return for new mom Cardi B. While she didn't perform, she accepted her award for Best New Artist with as much grace as I'm sure I would (see below).
Thanks for tagging me in that tweet, Lexi. I feel seen.

Much to my mother's dismay, I only wash my hair once a week. I started doing this about two years ago and haven't looked back since then. But this means that the products I use on my hair are really important to helping maintain semi-decent looking hair for a full seven days. Today I'm going to run through some of my haircare favorites for the last several months.
Living proof No Frizz Nourishing Oil
Naturally, your hair can start to look a little dry and brittle on the ends when you don't condition it more than once a week. If I'm not going to do a bun and my ends are looking a little ratty, I'll smooth some of this hair oil from mid-shaft to the ends of my hair to revive it. My favorite thing about this particular oil — and all Living proof products for that matter — is the smell. But it also works great as well.
IGK Trust Fund Thickening Foam
So IGK apparently doesn't make this product anymore. Trust Fund is now a scalp rebalancing treatment which is pretty much the exact opposite of this product, but they have Sunday Funday Texture Foam which I'm assuming is similar to this. I first discovered this product/line when I cut off all my hair in December (still crying about this, tbh). I didn't want my new Dakota Johnson-inspired bob to fall flat so I went on the hunt for a mousse to keep my hair voluminous and textured. This was the winner. It even gives my hair a little bit of a wave when I use it and scrunch while I blowdry. I do find, though, that this product doesn't work as well on my hair now as it did when it was shorter.
Living proof Perfect Hair Day In-Shower Styler
So I can be incredibly lazy when it comes to my hair. I mean, I only wash it once a week because it's a chore, so I need products that do the work for me. This product is the last step I take before getting out of the shower if I want to air dry my hair that day. It helps dry my hair quickly and doesn't make my hair stick flat to my head (driving with the top down on my car helps that problem as well). If you're looking for the perfect lazy girl hair product, this is it.
Living proof Full Dry Volume Blast
My holy grail volumizing spray. It does not get better than Full Dry Volume Blast. I used to be obsessed with Triple Sec 3-in-1 from Drybar, but Living proof's version is my all-time favorite. My hair is HUGE when I use this. It makes everything from ponytails to buns to curls look voluminous when I really don't have that much hair normally. If you're going to splurge on any hair product, I recommend this or the last product on the list.
Living proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo
You had to know that a dry shampoo was going to be on this list as soon as I talked about my hair washing habits (or lack thereof). I've tried everything from TRESemmé to Drybar to Batiste (still a drugstore favorite), but I always come back to Living proof. I really love their full range of products and it all began with this dry shampoo. It smells great and make my hair look like it was freshly washed even if I'm on day 5. Completely worth the $23, in my opinion.
