 I have a friend that travels a lot. And I find myself being really jealous of her. I mentioned how envious I was of her and she commented that its all in where you decide to spend your money. That traveling is her ONE thing. And I started thinking…
“What is my one thing that I don’t mind spending money on?”

I live to thrift shop/garage sale, so spending even $15 on a shirt sometimes seems excessive, but I hardly ever blink an eye when it comes to my hair. I LOVE to get my hair done every other month and am beyond lucky to have an amazingly talented stylist (who I also am blessed to call a friend). Whether it is hair products, bobby pins or hair tools (curling irons, crimpers, wavers, etc…I have them all), I want the best money can buy. Those things are not the items that I will end up buying at a thrift store.

So what is your one thing?

Pounds of Hair

I’m losing weight, which is awesome, although I’m starting to suspect that all of those pounds lost are just from my hair falling out. But seriously, at what point do I get concerned that this amount of hair loss is not normal?! I would have thought that after four months of having a baby my hair would stop falling out. It’s getting scary seeing handfuls of my hair EVERYWHERE. Has this happened to anyone else? I’m worried I’m losing too much hair.

My hair sometimes gets dry and brittle and needs a little extra attention. When this happens, I deep condition it with coconut oil. It’s cheap and easy to do. All you need is some coconut oil and a shower cap. You could also use a towel and blow dryer. (continue reading over at Life As Mom…)

How to Make the Best Out of Your Visit to the Salon

Everyone loves going to the salon and being pampered. Sometimes though, it’s overwhelming and terrifying going in for a new cut or color. Here are some tips on making your visit to the salon a satisfying experience.

1. Use Pinterest or magazines for inspiration.

Tear out pictures from magazines of cuts or color that you like or create a Pinterest board to save styles you’re interested in. Always take in a visual with you to show the stylist. This helps to convey the look you are going for because everyone has a different idea of what color blond or brown is. Hairstylists speak a different language than most people (“brassy”, etc.), so a picture will cut down on the confusion and communicate exactly what you want.

2. Find A Great Stylist

If you see someone whose hair color or cut you like, ask them who did their hair. Finding a fantastic stylist that can tell you what looks good on your face shape, goes with your skin color, etc. is an amazing discovery. Once you find a skilled stylist, trust them and ask them for advice on what kind of cut works with your hair type or if the cut/color you picked out works for you. (continue reading…)

There is always that time period after giving birth when your hormones are out of whack and getting back to normal. The worst thing that happens during this time is that your hair starts falling out in droves. You should see how much hair is all over the floor of my home. It’s absolutely ridiculous. I’m pretty sure in the next couple of weeks I’m going to be bald. Anyone wanna go wig shopping with me? ;)

6 Easy Hairstyles To Do While Running Out The Door

Easy-Hairstyles

I know how it is to run out of the house and realize that you haven’t brushed your hair…or your children’s hair for that matter. (Maybe there’s a reason God has blessed me with little boys….)

I also know how tempting it is to hit the snooze button two, okay…five times before you’re rushing out the door with only enough time to make sure you have the same shoes on. But I know that any outfit, no matter what you have on, will look that much more spectacular if you have your hair done.

Here are six easy hairstyles that can make you look incredibly put together, but only take a couple minutes to accomplish. [Continue reading over at lifeasmom.com...]
