Easy and Affordable Keratin Straight Hair

straight hair

I love wearing my hair pin straight but it usually involves a whole lot of work. Then, if it's extra humid and hot my hair gets completely frizzed out. I regularly color my hair and on top of that, I'm constantly changing the color.  Then, there's my addiction to blonde which generally strips hair even more. That's why for the past several years, I've been doing Keratin treatments, especially when I have a special event on the horizon.  But these treatments are a good $200 to $300 each easy.  On ...

You Won’t Believe that 95% of Women Feel This Way

You won't believe that 95% of all women feel this exact way! Shocking really!

If you were to describe yourself in one of two words, which would you choose? Better yet, if you had to choose between two doors to enter, which would you choose? The door labeled average or the door labeled beautiful? Shockingly, 95% of women chose to walk into the "average" door. I personally struggle with confidence and self esteem, particularly when it comes to my looks. The video about Dove's Choose Beautiful campaign really touched my heart and made me realize that I wasn't alone in the ...

My Son is “Leveling Up”. It’s Crazy.

axe

Time really does fly. I know it's a common expression that's probably used way too much. Sorry, but it's honestly relevant for this.  It was really just yesterday that we had a kid running around here and then a couple of summers ago, we had a teen.  It happened just like that. Now this year, we'll have a teen that can legally drive.  Yeah.  This is a sponsored post by Lunchbox about Axe Hair Products. Opinions are 100% my own. You think it can't happen to you.  But it does and it will happen ...
