My New Haircolor {It’s RED!} + Oscar Fashion & PEOPLE Magazine 2013 Oscars Double Issue

Target gift card giveaway

If you know me, you know I am a sucker for beauty and fashion.  I love being a woman and all the fun things that go along with it!  I was a hair stylist in a salon for over 10 years and even though I no longer work in that industry I love to stay up all the latest styles.  Now that doesn’t mean I’M up on the latest styles, but it does mean I like knowing what they are and at least trying!

One of the ways I do that is by reading PEOPLE Magazine, and on March 1st, PEOPLE Magazine 2013 Oscars Double Issue will be out on stands. It is only available between March 1st & March 18th.

I’m super excited to get my copy! This is THE issue I look forward to each year.  There is just something about seeing all the fun gowns and hairstyles.  Color is the big thing right now, and I’m eager to see if  the gowns are going to reflect that.

Target gift card
I’m happy to tell you that we are giving away a Target $20.00 Gift Card so one of YOU lucky readers can go buy your own PEOPLE Magazine for FREE!  Keep reading to the end so you can enter to win!

As much as I love the gowns, my MOST FAVORITE thing to look at is celebrity hairstyles.  I love looking at what color their hair is this season and who wears it up and who wears it down.  I’m especially interested in RED hair color this year.  I recently changed my hair color up and I am now a red head.  What do you think?  I think redheads have more fun!!

Amy Bowman Red hair
With this new red hair color, I will be looking for celebrity red- heads and noticing what makeup colors they are wearing.  I’m feeling pretty clueless about makeup with such a big change in my hair color level & tone. It just so happens that 2 of the Best Female Actress In A Leading Role Nominees are red heads, or at least have been, so I’m eager to see what their makeup entails on the red carpet!

Jennifer Lawrence
 Jennifer Lawrence, Nominated for her role in Silver Linings Playbook
Love this deep brown with hints of read.  Love her ruby lipstick!

Jessica Chastain
Jessica Chastain Nominated for her role in Zero Dark Thirty
Love her goldilocks.  Red hair color fades easily, so I’m hoping when mine does it will fade into something pretty like this!  Amazing how great red lips look with red hair.


So, will you be watching the Oscar’s on Sunday?  I know I will be.  As we wait, here is a fun way to pass the time. Head over and test out your PEOPLE trivia skills for a change to win!  You can enter each week for a chance to win one of hundreds of rewards cards.  Just click the link to play now!
