Ricky Care Giveaway and Discount Code!

Update: Congratulations to Michelle Amos on winning the RickyCare goodie bag!

I don’t know about you, but the only time I’ve ever think about Ricky’s in NYC is during the Halloween season, as Ricky’s is the go-to spot for fantastic Halloween costumes and accessories. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered that they have an entire hair and beauty line! This week, Diana and I had the privilege of visiting the Ricky Care show room to chat about all things beauty with Private Label Manager, Jillian Jaques. As it turns out, the Ricky Care line is filled with a ton of innovative products. Some of my favorites include their line of combs infused different things from Argan oil to create bounce and shine to olive oil for fighting frizz,

and their no-crease bow clips.

Ricky Care was nice enough to give us a goodie bag filled with some great products and we want to give it away to a loyal reader! The mesh goodie bag includes:
Argan+ Rat Tail Comb
Set of 4 No-Slip hair bands
Self hold hair styling strip
Mini Bobby Pins
And 4 No Crease Clips.

Color Trend: Neon – Colorphobe style

I have to admit that when I saw that neon was going to be a big trend this spring, I cringed.  My mind immediately went through a montage of blinding 80s fashion.  And while some may adopt this trend in that very way, I’ve decided that I’m just going to dip my toe into the neon pool.  I’ll probably pair these with some neutrals, whites, and navy blues.  Here are the neon pieces I’m craving for this spring (and probably even before then!): Spring 2012 Neonsource | source | source

So, how do you feel about neon this spring?  Are you going to go head-to-toe highlighter blue? Or will you be dipping your toe like me?
