Carol's Daughter Hair Affair

Carol's Daughter Hair Affair

SMYRNA, Ga. -- Carol’s Daughter held a Holiday Hair Affair hosted by TV personality Rashan Ali, along with hair blogger and Carol’s Daughter ambassador Alexis Felder.

Over 75 guests gathered at Keep It Natural Salon in Smyrna to learn tips from celeb stylist Rikya Taylor (Kelly Rowland, Lala Anthony, the Braxtons). Taylor and her team dished on how to keep your hair hydrated during the winter months, pressing and waving techniques, fighting frizz and shedding, and which products from the featured Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare line will help you achieve the latest looks.

Guests enjoyed music by DJ Uno, small bites from Zaxby’s and the refreshing fruit flavors of MYX Fusions Moscato.

ATLANTA -- Many people dream of being their own boss, but struggle to make the leap.

Twelve years ago, Atlanta native Dana Spinola gathered the courage to turn her lifelong passion into a profession and opened her first clothing boutique, fab'rik.

"I get up early. I stay up late. My mind is always working," she said.

And it's perfectly understandable. Spinola has had a lot on her plate since starting fab'rik. She has since opened 21 boutiques and franchises. Her mission has always been frugal fashion -- less than $100 -- in a fun, inviting boutique environment.

Being your own boss can seem liberating, but many who make that leap say they end up working even more.

Lost Your Work Mojo? Be Inspired by These Chic Home Offices

It's Wednesday [or Thursday for that matter] and I have no motivation. No desire to get any work done. I'm sitting in my home office, looking around my 3 floor-length windows, staring outside and hoping the sun (which has potential to melt everything inside if I didn't keep my blinds slanted) and the singing birds would give me some inspiration to share what I do and love best.

But it doesn't.
