Hey ya'll! It's been a little while since I've posted a blog. My days have been pretty full and I just haven't had the time to sit down and write. I have tons of ideas for posts though so hopefully in the next week or two I can update more often.
Today I’m going to share some of my favorite things with all of you. When I find something I love, I really LOVE it. (I’m a love/hate kind of person. One of the downsides of being so passionate.)
In case you didn't know, I am all about the volume when it comes to hair. I like to be near Jesus, if you know what I’m sayin’. I apply Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus to my roots before I blow dry my hair.
And then after I’m done styling my hair, I spray it with Big Sexy Hair Spray and Stay. This stuff is not lying when it promises to stay. It holds everything in place for hours and hours. It also helps create volume.
I ordered Rock Your Hair Bombshell Big Hair Powder off of Amazon recently. I was actually drawn to it because of the hot pink bottle. But I’m so glad I discovered it. I didn’t really like wearing my hair straight before because I always felt like it was too flat. Since I’ve began using this product I’ve been wearing my hair straight more often because it adds body.
Suave Dry Shampoo has literally changed my life. I’ve been using it for a little over a year now. I used to wash my hair every single day. I started hearing that that was bad for your hair so I gave dry shampoo a try. I went through a couple more expensive ones before I tried this one and I wish I would have tried this one first. It’s cheap and it smells like grape fruit and I can go three days without washing my hair now.
I’m sporting third day hair in the photo below thanks to Suave Dry Shampoo. AND I had worked out and sweated that morning. I usually spray it on my roots, then blow dry it for a few minutes and then style. My hair feels so much healthier since I’ve stopped washing it every day. And I've noticed that my hair does not get as oily as it used to. Sometimes I spray it on my roots on a day that I have washed it just to add volume.
I got the look below by using all the products I just mentioned. As well as a curling wand.
This is my all time favorite mascara! Just like the dry shampoo, it changed my life. I’ve even got my mom using it.
I have to say, trying to take a photo of your eye lashes is AWWW-KWARD.
My favorite snack lately has been a brown rice cake with garlic hummus on top. I never realized all the things that you can add on top of a rice cake. This was a total accident and now I eat one almost every day.
Can you tell what my favorite water flavoring is? I wanted to make sure I never ran out. No, but seriously. Watermelon Kool-Aid sugar free sweetener with NO aspartame. AMAZING! Target has had them on sale the last two times I’ve been in there so I stocked up.
And something that I talk about a lot! Spark! I’ve tried all the flavors now and Watermelon is still my favorite. Green Apple and Strawberry Mango are tied for second. I enjoy them all but Watermelon is just so delicious. When I was on the Whole 30 it was one of the things I craved! I like to drink Spark before my workout and I reach for it if I need an afternoon pick me up.
