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 ...

Protect Hair From Summer Activities

Simple steps to protect hair from summer activities!

It's hot, hot, hot here this summer. This week, we've been doing even more outdoor activities than usual with the kids here. We usually try to avoid the summer sun when we can. With the extra strong summer rays we're always slathering on sunblock. But, one thing that I easily forget is to protect my hair. This is a sponsored post by Lunchbox about Active Damage Resist Shampoo and Conditioner from Clear Scalp & Hair, all opinions are my own. With long days in the pool, we're also ...

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 ...

Keeping Hydrated Inside and Out for a Beautiful Summer

Summer is the number one season where skin, healthy and beauty really takeover my thoughts. How could they not? It's hot! We need to wear less clothes to keep cool and bare more skin.

Today, I want to chat about how I am thinking about how I treat myself inside and out for a more beautiful summer! This is a sponsored post by Lunchbox, ...

Pond's Cold Cream Cleaser

I'm always chatting about how busy I am. In essence, it's why I started this blog. My goal was to share easy shortcuts that can get us from A to Z faster and in as few steps as possible. Since then, I actually became even busier.  I work way more than full time hours and trying to cram in any me time sometimes seems impossible. Really impossible. I've written about how important it is to take care of ourselves so many times, but taking my own advice can be beyond tricky. Today, I'm sharing a ...

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 ...

It really feels like it's been summer forever now that we're living in Florida. We haven't even been living here for 6 months yet, so we still have a lot of firsts to experience.

Get Style That Makes Waves & #UnDoneWaves Twitter Party

Do you look for easier more laid back hair styles when the summer heat hits? I sure do. There is is nothing more icky than sweating under a hot iron after a shower. I love keeping my hair straight and sleek, but it's such a challenge in the heat. Even if I spend time getting it straight, once I set foot out of the house, I end up with a frizzy mess anyway. That's why I'm loving that the beachy wave look is totally in this year! This is a sponsored post by Lunchbox about UnDone Hair Waves, all ...
