self care : facial at home

As I wait to meet my second little girl, self care has really become a priority. I know I'm up against many sleepless nights ahead so I'm taking advantage of all the resting time available to me now. Of course I love to treat myself to a pedicure or massage here and there, but taking care of my skin is a daily ritual that I stick to religiously. Here's a quick rundown of my skincare routine with l ...

roots update ii

This April will mark TWO years since I've colored my hair. You probably don't care, but it's record breaking for me and I'm feeling pretty proud lately. I mentioned earlier that my main goal was to get my hair back to healthy and find out what my natural color really is, but I've also been loving all the extra time and money I'm saving. I've considered trying summer highlights after baby is born, ...

roots update

It's now been 7 months since I've color-treated my hair. Even after two trims, my ends are still feeling pretty dry, but the new growth at my roots is super soft, strong, and shiny. Knowing this encourages me to keep going until ALL the blonde is grown out. I've stuck to my healthy hair routine religiously, recently added more oil treatments and started using a boar bristle brush. Please let me k ...
