Pancakes…yum!!

Pancakes…yum!!

Whenever we have pancakes, my husband makes them. Hands down, best pancakes you’ll ever eat. He really should open a Pancake House! He makes them from scratch so they take a little while to whip up. I just found a new pancake mix that is really good and will do in a pinch. My friend [...]

Shave or Wax Part 2

Shave or Wax Part 2

For those of you that can’t stand the thought of waxing, shaving is your best bet. You can check out my older posts for my favorite razor and favorite shave oil. If you’re going to shave that bikini line, below are my two must haves! First, I love Bikini Zone shave gel. It helps with [...]

Shave or Wax Part 1

Shave or Wax Part 1

Summer will be here before you know it, and you know what that means...bathing suit season. Which means it’s time to get the bikini line in shape! There’s always the debate between waxing & shaving your bikini line, but as I’ve gotten older, waxing is the best for me. Shaving started giving me awful ingrown [...]

Guilty as charged!

Guilty as charged!

Yes sir, I multitask. Every damn day! I’m writing emails, answering questions, talking on the phone and eating lunch all at the same time. How else do you get anything done??? I’ve always prided myself on multitasking. I thought doing it made me a super star. Unfortunately I’m realizing it made me a super star [...]

Just Browsing

Just Browsing

Finally after 14 months it was time to get my eyebrows touched up. I probably could have gone a little sooner but I was lazy! This time Carey and I discussed the pros and cons of microblading versus powder brows. I definitely have oily skin so the lines didn’t stay as crisp and fresh. Which [...]

Best shave ever!

Not kidding. You gotta check out Tree Hut’s Shave Oil. Seriously obsessed! It comes in three scents - Coconut Lime (what I have), Moroccan Rose, and Vanilla. It’s way better than shaving cream, gel or foam. I love that it’s a pump bottle so I don’t spill it or get too much. It’s the closest [...]

Maskne be gone!

Maskne be gone!

Yep, maskne is a real thing!! I’ve been struggling more and more with breakouts since I’m wearing a mask 8 hours a day. My Drunk Elephant skincare routine just wasn’t cutting it anymore. An old friend of mine started selling SeneGence, so I figured I’d try it out and support her at the same time. [...]

It’s working!

It’s working!

45 days in and I’m sticking with it. You guys know I have thinning hair. I’m sticking with my L’Oréal EverStrong Shampoo & Conditioner, but I needed some reinforcements. Nutrafol to the rescue!! I wanted to start with something I could do without having to see a doctor. One, COVID and two, I wanted to [...]

Really?

Really?

It’s been over 3 months since I posted anything? It hasn’t felt like that long! Had to get through the holidays and started a new adventure at work, so it has been a little busy. 😉 Quick catch up, still working on my getting healthy journey. I’m down a total of 21 pounds. I’ve stalled [...]

Piper Lou Who?

Piper Lou Who?

I’m sure you’ve seen their ads on Facebook. I love the sayings on their gear. I’m especially obsessed with their 30 oz. tumblers. I take one with me to work everyday. One of my besties got me one that says “We are best friends cause everyone else sucks.” Um, yeah! Proudly display it on my [...]

Early or late?

Early or late?

My husband and I shop very differently when it comes to Christmas presents. I like to shop early. He is content to wait until a few days before hand. Drives me crazy!!! And I swear Amazon has made it worse. When he couldn’t get stuff shipped, he had to shop earlier. Now, he can order [...]

Norwex

Norwex

Ever heard of it? I hadn’t either until my sister in law introduced me to it a few years ago. It’s a company that focuses on cleaning without chemicals. They use microbial silver in their cloth to get rid of bacteria. It’s up to 99% effective according to their testing. I love my Bathroom Scrub [...]

Small Business Saturday.

I know this post is coming at you on Cyber Monday, but I’ve been thinking. Scary, I know. But why do we only have one day where we highlight small business? I figured while you’re surfing for great deals at the big stores, you could also check out some small shops too!! I have a [...]

Comfy and perky.

Comfy and perky.

Yeah, I said it. We all want a bra that keeps the girls lifted and supported while staying comfortable; especially in this WFH era. My hands down favorite is Gap’s Live-In Pretty Bralette. It’s super comfy while keeping the girls lifted and supported. Would I workout in this bra? No, but for everyday it’s perfect!!! [...]

Matchy matchy.

Matchy matchy.

Yep, it’s gotta match!! I’m one of those annoying fools that the the tree has to match the house color/decor, and the paper has to match the tree, and the stockings...and so on. I know it drives some of my friends and family crazy. Before I was all about blue, silver, and white. Now, it’s [...]

‘Tis the season.

‘Tis the season.

Time to start thinking about holiday cards!!! How is that even possible? The time goes by so freaking fast!! We typically don’t pose for our Christmas cards. It’s usually a picture that we got taken as a family at some function - you know, wedding, birthday, etc. My absolute favorite one was taken by a [...]

Get in my belly!! Part 4

You gotta have snacks. You can’t live on meals alone. I typically like a snack between lunch and dinner. Some days I like salty, other days I like sweet, just depends on my mood.

Get in my belly!! Part 2

To continue from yesterday’s post, here are some typical lunch meals. Again, it gets tracked on the My Fitness Pal app. Shakeology. I like the Chocolate and Vanilla. My one caveat for these, have to be blended with unsweetened almond milk. I can’t do them with water or just shaken up. Sometimes I add a [...]

Get in my belly!! Part 1

Get in my belly!! Part 1

Lately I’ve been asked what I eat in a day since I’m counting calories. I track everything I eat in the My Fitness Pal app. I stick to 1200 calories a day, unless I’ve worked out. Then I’m closer to 1400 calories a day. As I mentioned, I eat what I want. I don’t do [...]

Don’t touch that dial.

Don’t touch that dial.

Since COVID started we’ve gotten into a routine of playing marbles and then watching a show together after dinner. We’ve enjoyed the family time. We’ve watched every single episode of Survivor, the Blacklist, Cobra Kai, Prison Break, How to Get Away with Murder, and we’re finishing up Chicago PD. Now we need another show. We [...]

Game Changer!

Game Changer!

I’m serious!! I thought milk frother wand thingys were stupid until I got one from Amazon. Holy shit Batman!! I just upped my tea game to a whole new level!!! I got the Zulay Milk Boss based on Amazon’s recommendations. Why didn’t I get this sucker sooner?????? I made myself an almond milk chai tea [...]

Red or white?

Red or white?

It’s officially that time of year where I stop drinking white wine and move to red. I don’t like white when the weather turns colder. Not sure why, but I don’t enjoy white when it’s cold outside. Instead I enjoy a nice full bodied red. 🍷🍷 I like Zinfandel, Malbec, Cabernet, and blends. Some of [...]

I scream, you scream,

I scream, you scream,

We all scream for ice cream! Have you noticed the new, healthier versions of ice cream out there??? They range from keto friendly to low calorie. I’m sorry but I’ll stick with good old fashioned ice cream. I’ve tried Halo. I’ve had their Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Sea Salt Caramel, and Cookies & Cream. They [...]

Bum Bum Cream

Bum Bum Cream

Worth the splurge...hands down!!! Sweet baby Jesus this cream is the bomb!!! I got it to try with my 20% discount during the Sephora holiday sale. I wanted to try it because it promised better elasticity for my skin, which I totally need as I get older. Plus losing weight has made my skin a [...]

Ummm, socks.

Ummm, socks.

It’s been a looooong week so I can’t say I’ve got much juice left for anything too exciting. While I was sitting here trying to come up with an idea for posting my daughter asked about my socks. She’s like, “what are those?” Of course I respond with “umm, socks.” After much back and forth, [...]

Slowly but Surely Update 4

Slowly but Surely Update 4

I think it’s number 4. I was too tired to go back and check. I can’t believe I’m still on this journey. Who’d have thunk!! I’ve lost 20 lbs. since I started on July 20th. I’ve lost 15 inches overall. 😳😳 And I’m still eating what I want 🍷🍪🍦, which is super important to me. [...]

The unkibble.

The unkibble.

In case you haven’t noticed I’m a sucker for good Facebook advertising. My latest purchase, dog food. We tried the unkibble. We ordered the two-week trial of Spot & Tango’s Unkibble. We got to try two recipes of their air dried dog food. We got the Beef & Barley and the Chicken & Brown Rice. [...]

F@$k Foundation.

F@$k Foundation.

Yeah, I said it. I haven’t used foundation in almost a year and it has nothing to do with Covid. I’ve tried the majority of them and haven’t found one I liked. I’ve used bare minerals, Estée Lauder, Lancôme, Cover FX, Makeup For Ever, It Cosmetics, Laura Mercier, and the list goes on. I’ve tried [...]

Daisy Fresh.

Daisy Fresh.

My girlfriend Cate always talked about razors helping you feel daisy fresh. It was an inside joke that started a million years ago. You know the crazy, feminine based commercials for tampons and crap, where the chick is running through the field? That’s daisy fresh! 🤣🤣 Any time we found a razor we loved, we’d [...]

Best Kept Laundry Secret

Best Kept Laundry Secret

Weirdly everyone always comments on how my laundry smells. I keep hearing that my clothes smell so good. I’ll take it but I couldn’t figure out what I was doing differently than most people. Before we were married, my husband loved when he left clothes at my house and I wash them. Teachers at my [...]

CFO

CFO

That usually stands for Chief Financial Officer. And while that title definitely applies to my husband when it comes to the family budget, it should also stand for Creative Financing Officer. Dude, this guy is a freaking genius!!! He’s so good a keeping our finances balanced and in check!! He’s also really good at looking [...]

Face Routine

Face Routine

I’ve been obsessed with a skin care routine since high school. I’ve tried tons of products and through the years I didn’t deviate from my routine much. I was always a fan of Clearasil face wash with Seabreeze toner and either moisturizer from Neutrogena or Clinique. Then I hit 35. None of those seemed to [...]

Must Reads…

Must Reads…

Do you get a ton of junk emails? I do. I’m not even sure how some of this crap appears. 🤷🏻‍♀️ While unsubscribing and deleting crap, I always make time to read two emails in addition to the Skimm. First up, T&L Just In. I’m not sure how I ever got started on this one [...]

Tea darling?

Tea darling?

Tea is my go to hot drink. I enjoy coffee too but drink tea more than anything. Of course I have my favorites. I usually drink English Breakfast or Earl Grey but I enjoy different flavors as well. My favorite tea brand is Twinings. I use their k-pods for my Keurig. My go to’s are [...]

Opinions Wanted!

Opinions Wanted!

I need to get a new fleece. I’ve had my current one for over 15 years and it’s done. I got it at Target years ago. It’s also magenta. Not sure what I was thinking but older me doesn’t want something that bright. I can’t decided if I want an actual fleece or the new [...]

Daily Dose

Daily Dose

I’m not a huge TV watcher. I love sports and watch a few shows, but you’ll find my nose in a book more often than you’ll see me in front of the TV. I also hate the news. Nobody just reports anymore. It’s all freaking slanted one way or another and drives me nuts. I [...]

Coffee or tea?

Coffee or tea?

Both please!!! I love tea and drink it every morning, but I also enjoy coffee. Sometimes I want something a little stronger than my usual tea. And it’s even better if you add Bailey’s. 😉 To make life easier we got a Keurig years ago. Best choice! We can both make coffee or tea on [...]

Meh.

Meh.

I mentioned that my daughter got the Function of Beauty shampoo & conditioner awhile ago. She wanted to try them desperately. After months of asking, I caved and she placed her order. functionofbeauty.com She has curly hair like me but tends to wear it straighter than mine. She also inherited my oily scalp. Have I [...]

He loves them.

He loves them.

Not exaggerating one bit. He loves the Vuori Ponto Shorts. He picked & bought them himself. I get home from work, barely step in the door, and he’s like “They came. You gotta feel them.” Of course I had no idea what he was talking about. Available at vuoriclothing.com He pulls these shorts from the [...]

Tag, you’re it!

Thanks so much for keeping up with the blog!! Today, though, I’m asking you to write it. 😊 I started blogging because I wanted to create a community with people who wanted to share their thoughts. I’d love you to comment & tell me you want to hear about or discuss. I love hearing your [...]

Write that down…

Write that down…

Seriously has become almost a mantra for me. If I don’t write it down, I’ll forget about it. I didn’t used to have that problem, but you know, getting older. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’ve always been obsessed with penmanship, writing and pens. I used to sign my name over and over again growing up. Ask my parents, [...]

Rosy Cheeks

Rosy Cheeks

Best ducking blush ever - NudeStix Nudies All Over Face Color in Bare Back!!!! Not even joking. Available at Sephora.com I heard somewhere that as you get older you should switch from powder to cream blush. I found one years ago by Make Up Forever but they stopped making it. 😢 Everything else I tried [...]

Def Con Level 4

Def Con Level 4

Anxiety is at a level 10!!! I’ve haven’t felt this way in such a long time I almost forgot what it was like. Hardly sleeping, completely on edge, slightest thing sets me off, and just anxious all the time. I’m pretty sure I know what the problem is but I don’t want to really acknowledge [...]

Slowly but Surely Part 3

Slowly but Surely Part 3

9 weeks. I’ve stuck with this program for 9 weeks. Holy shit Batman! That never happens. 14 lbs and 13 inches gone...say what?? 😳 I credit it to the fact that I’ve got a great coach & I’m being realistic this time. My coach keeps me accountable & helps keep me going. She’s there if [...]

Think Dirty.

Think Dirty.

Dude it’s not what you think! It’s a clean product app. No joke! I mentioned in the natural deodorant post I did product research. This app is one of the places I go before I buy any products. It tells you how clean a product is. The lavender & rose Native came up as Zero. [...]

Dolla, Dolla Bills Y’All!

Dolla, Dolla Bills Y’All!

I don’t ever carry cash. I haven’t for years! My husband on the other hand, he always has some cash on hand. As such, he’s always carried a money clip. And I’ve never seen him with a wallet, just a card carrier. He can’t stand having anything in his back pocket. He just bought himself [...]

No aluminum here.

No aluminum here.

I’m finally got on the bandwagon and checked out natural deodorant. And the verdict, no thanks. I get all the positives, but it wasn’t for me! As always I did research before I bought anything. I settled on Native and Each & Every. Can you say sticker shock?? I was not expecting natural deodorant to [...]

Three fluid ounces.

Three fluid ounces.

Anyone else dread those words? Pre-Covid, I traveled a ton for work. So much so that my first thought with any beauty or hair product was can I get this on a plane? No joke. I packed my toiletries before anything else. I mentioned before that I only travel with a carry on, so if [...]

Open wide…

Open wide…

It was that time again - off to the dentist. Let me just say, growing up I never hated going to the dentist. I loved my dentist and hygienist. They were both so nice, super gentle and patient. I never had any issues. Then I graduated college & moved to Maryland. Dude - awful experience [...]

Let me introduce you to…

Let me introduce you to…

Marks & Spencer. It’s one of my favorite stores. They’re headquartered in London. It’s sort of Europe’s version of Target, or a cross between Target & Kohl’s. I go there when I want excellent quality at a great price. My favorite flats are from M&S. I discovered this store years ago on a trip to [...]

Keeping it real.

Keeping it real.

On Monday, I had another virtual session with my therapist. I was thinking about our visit while getting ready for today. It’s so much freaking easier to meet virtually!!!!!!!! I save an hour in drive time, I don’t have to put on makeup, and showering is optional. Score!!! Although I do usually try to have [...]

Diffuse those curls!

Diffuse those curls!

When it comes to my curls, I air dry about 40% of the time and the other 60% I use a hair dryer and diffuser. I air dry when I have the time, but I don’t typically leave the house until my hair is completely dry so I don’t always have time to do that. [...]

Less Shedding

Less Shedding

I went looking for my usual shampoo & conditioner but Target was out of it. However, they had the new Hers collection. It’s supposed to be good for hair loss and thinning hair so I figured I’d give it a shot. I’ve used the combo for almost two weeks. First off, freaking love the smell [...]

My new, cozy uniform!

Thanks to Target, I’ve found my WFH fall uniform! I’m always cold so I think this outfit will keep my toasty while I’m doing my Zoom meetings & conference calls! Love the tunic length! And this sucker has pockets! That way I won’t lose my phone. This sweatshirt is the perfect weight...not too heavy so [...]

It’s a bright idea!

It’s a bright idea!

Grabbed the Bliss Bright Idea Vitamin C serum on a whim at Target. My dermatologist had recommended adding Vitamin C to my skin care routine, so I had been using Drunk Elephant’s Vitamin C Serum, but wasn’t in love with it. I didn’t like the smell and it was super sticky. I felt like it [...]

Not only for the ladies!

Not only for the ladies!

Anyone watch 9-1-1 Lone Star? Saw it last night for the first time. Rob Lowe’s shameless product plugs cracked me up, but it got me thinking. Most men truly don’t take care of their skin. I’m lucky because my husband does. And for those of you who’ve met us, you know he looks younger than [...]

TMI…Underwear

TMI…Underwear

I know this isn’t a subject we normally talk about, let alone discuss openly but I have to share my favorites!! I’ve tried everything from expensive brands to grabbing the cheapest pair at Target. Hands down favorite for underwear...Love by the Gap!! They have the softest cotton, they last forever and they’re super comfy. What [...]

Blend it baby!

Blend it baby!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve used everything to blend my foundation. I’ve had regular makeup sponges, a Beauty Blender, a regular foundation brush, my fingers...you get the picture. I’ll stick with one thing for awhile and then move on to something new, but not this time. I’ve found my favorite tool!!! It’s the [...]

Slowly but Surely Update

Slowly but Surely Update

Started Week 6 of this getting healthy journey this past Monday. I’m happy to say I’m down over 8 pounds. The weight is staring to come off a little slower, but the important part is that it’s still coming off. That helps to keep me motivated! Non-scale victories help too! I can wear my favorite [...]

Warm & Cozy

Warm & Cozy

I’m starting to think about fall. After posting about the candles, I’’ thinking about what else I’ll change in the house to make it feel warm & cozy as it starts to get colder. I usually add more pillows in warmer colors to the sofa and add cozy blankets for snuggling. We decorate for fall [...]

Burn Baby Burn

Burn Baby Burn

I love burning scented candles. I burn them while I’m working, in the evenings when we’re binge watching tv, or just cause. I love them! Just like my perfume I switch up my candles based on the weather and season. 🕯 During spring and summer, my favorite candles come from Capri Blue (capri-blue.com). The absolute [...]

Covid Broke Our Dog

Covid Broke Our Dog

I’m not kidding! So our youngest got a mini labradoodle puppy for Christmas. Best parents ever!! So we we’re home for winter break then Bam!...here comes the ‘Rona. So this dog really hasn’t ever been alone. She doesn’t think she should ever be by herself. The dog, otherwise known as Nova, spends the days following [...]

Road Trip Part 4

Road Trip Part 4

Finally the clothes are going into the luggage. I started planning my outfits by writing out the days that I would be gone and listing what I would need each day. I did it in the Notes on my phone Saturday - Car: jeans, T-shirt, sweater, sneaks Sunday - in laws: church clothes, bathing suit, [...]

Road Trip Part 3

Road Trip Part 3

Since I don’t have little kids coming with us, I don’t have to worry about entertainment. My husband and I will trade off driving and my daughter will sleep & have her phone, so we’re set. That means the last thing I have to pack are staples for the condo. We’ll go to the store [...]

Road Trip Part 2

Road Trip Part 2

So we’re going to be stuck for at least 10 hours in the car on the way there and on the way back. I need to figure out snacks for the trip. As I’ve mentioned I’m working on losing weight and getting healthy so I don’t want to blow it with junk food on the [...]

Road Trip Part 1

Road Trip Part 1

For our vacation this year, we’re driving not flying 😳 We’re splitting the drive up by stopping to see family on the way there and the way back. Hopefully that will keep us from killing one another 😬 I don’t know about you, but when I’m not flying I have a tendency to over pack. [...]

Once upon a time…

Once upon a time…

So I don’t need a fairytale but I do need some book suggestions. I’m out of reading material at the moment (that very rarely happens) and need some ideas for some vacation reads. 📚 I’ve also read BA Paris and just finished The Guest List by Lucy Foley. Now you kind of understand my taste [...]

Spray & Slay

Spray & Slay

I don’t leave home without putting on perfume. I blame my mother ☺️. She always smells fabulous and never leaves home without at least a spritz. 🌺 I seriously have a mini panic attack if I’ve left the house and realize I haven’t put any on. I feel incomplete without it! Weird...I know. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Obviously [...]

Water is your friend!

Water is your friend!

While that is definitely true when it comes to your health, it’s even more important for your curls!! I’m not kidding, while we typically hide indoors while it’s super humid out, one thing that can help is more water. Wait, huh? You read that right!! It took me years to learn this trick. I’ve been [...]

This little piggy…

This little piggy…

Thanks to Covid it’s still hard to go to the market let alone to the nail salon!!! I posted the other week about Color Street nail strips. Love those for my nails but I go the old fashioned route for my toes. I only occasionally go for a pedicure. I’d rather do them myself. So [...]

Slowly but Surely Part 3

Slowly but Surely Part 3

Time for the last post about what I’m doing to get healthy and lose weight. I’ve added some supplements to my daily morning regime. I already take a probiotic and biotin with my morning meds, but I’ve added Elevacity’s Happy Tea and Xanthomax supplement. I always have hot tea in the morning with breakfast. I [...]

Slowly but Surely Part 2

Slowly but Surely Part 2

The next part for getting healthy is my diet. I didn’t eat horribly before but I had no sense of portion control. I’d eat until I got full but my sense of full was almost painful. I needed to get my portion sizes and calories under control. I’m using the My Fitness Pal app to [...]

Slowly but Surely Part 1

Slowly but Surely Part 1

I’ve mentioned a couple times about losing weight and getting healthy. I figure it’s time to elaborate. I’ve always been on the chunkier side. Never been a size 2 and never going to be. However as I’ve gotten older the weight keeps adding on and it is getting harder and harder to lose. Sound familiar [...]

What’s for dinner?

What’s for dinner?

Kill me now!!!! I hate that ducking question!! 8:30 and my daughter hasn’t even had breakfast and wants to know what’s for dinner. 🤯 Since COVID, we now cook every night. We’ve gotten take out maybe 3 times, So it’s a legit issue if there’s nothing to make for dinner. I don’t know about you, [...]

Chapstick Everywhere

Chapstick Everywhere

It’s true. I have it everywhere...my desk, my purse, my computer bag, nightstand - you get the picture. And I have different types for different places. Am I the only one??? I don’t go anywhere without my chapstick and hand sanitizer. 💋 Let’s start with my purse/computer bag. There are always at least 2 in [...]

Bottoms Up!!

Bottoms Up!!

I may be working on losing some weight and getting healthier (post to come!) but I’m not giving up alcohol! I love a glass of wine (or 2...okay, okay sometimes the whole bottle) with dinner or a drink to relax with while chillin’ on our patio. I’ve been experimenting to find some low-cal drinks. I’ve [...]

Did you say sale?

Did you say sale?

It’s that time of year...Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale is upon us. Everyone is commenting on what they want and what’s best. I’m lazy so I scoured The Mom Edit (themomedit.com) and then The Mother Chic (themotherchic.com) to see they’re favorite picks. There were a lot of similarities. Going through their sites paired down what I wanted [...]

Slip ‘n Silk

Slip ‘n Silk

Where the hell did my 20’s go? I’d wake up back then with no pillow creases, a lot skinnier and full of a lot more energy. While I’m working on the weight and the energy, I was able to quickly get rid of the creases!! I started using a Slip pillow case (slip.com) a month [...]

Easy Peasy Nails for Days

Easy Peasy Nails for Days

So...I don’t paint my nails a lot; 1) it’s time and effort, 2) it never lasts, and 3) I don’t want the keep up. Yes I’ve tried gel, dip, acrylics and everything else out there. It’s just not for me, although sometimes I do want to the look. Enter Color Street. In 15 minutes my [...]

Holy Cauliflower Batman!!!

Holy Cauliflower Batman!!!

It was pizza night last night. My husband makes the best pizza!!! We tried something new instead of our usual crust. Wegman’s Cauliflower Pizza Crust for the win (wegmans.com)!! It was so good even my cauliflower hating husband loved it! He made each of us a pizza - margarita for me and chorizo for him. [...]

Summer Beverage

Summer Beverage

With a name like Tipsy Curls, my next post has to be about one of my favorite summer drinks...Ramona Wine Spritzs!  Could it get any easier? Pop the top & pour!! The original Ruby Grapefruit Spritz got me hooked. I loved it the first time I had it at a restaurant in VA. I had [...]

Hair Towels

Hair Towels

Curly girls know a regular, terry cloth towel can be disasterous to our curls. It actually took me until I was in my 30's to learn this tidbit. Ever since, I ditched my regular towel for a microfiber hair towel. BIG difference. Way less frizz with the microfiber towel. And, my hair dries much faster...those [...]

Curly Hair Products

Curly Hair Products

Those who know me will not be shocked that my first post is about hair products! I have crazy, thin, curly hair (3A/B curl type). I refer to my hair as the Poodle - friends have even created a number scale for it. Today, I'd say a it's solid 6 even with the humidity (the [...]
