When it comes to hair accessories, I’m a gal of simple tastes. I’ll do black ponytail holders and Spin Pins; sometimes I’ll even rock a scrunchie around the house (hey, they’re comfortable), but Goody’s new slew of spring headgear has me rethinking my minimalist ways.
Their Modern Organica Collection, available now at Target, features a bevy of new barrettes, headbands, headwraps and clips with an earthy theme, some of which would probably be more expensive on the shelves of a department store.
This $7 Pearlized Shell Headwrap has a non-rigid elastic band with braided fabric and shell accents (like mother-of-pearl). It’s available in beige, brown and black.
For what it’s worth, the neutral brown one seems to go well with white, pink, beige, peach, orange and blue shirts… I have a feeling there won’t be an accompanying color it doesn’t like.
Got a khaki or white dress? Pair it with one of these, add pearl earrings and gold bangles, and you’re good(y) to go.
When I wear it, this model (it’s a wrap instead of a rigid band) squeezes my head a little more than the Goody Reversible Headband I mentioned the other day, but it does have some stretch to it and doesn’t really hurt. If you’re sensitive to headband headaches, the Reversible band might be a better choice.
AVAILABILITY: Available exclusively at Target stores
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (I wish it didn’t squeeze quite as hard)
Meet me at the mango bar
Okay, have you tried these Mango Cream Bars from Trader Joe’s? Holy WOW! I only discovered them the other day and already finished the whole box.
They’re these refreshing little frozen fruit bars/Creamsicles, but they taste exactly like mangoes. Each one has little strips of frozen cream along the side of the fruity part. I thought they sounded a little weird at first, but they totally work.
And get this — each bar has only 60 calories! They’re small but loaded with flavor.
If mango isn’t your thing, I’ve also seen a raspberry version. I haven’t tried that one yet, but I hear it’s equally epic. If you run across these at TJ’s, snatch a box (or two!). Your sweet tooth will thank you.
