How Often Do You Wash Your Hair?

DSC01193

Hi! I am at a cross roads with my hair! I am wanting to grow it out so badly, but it is at this awkward middle stage. Some days I consider chopping it off to a cute bob, but then I remember how long and pretty my hair was just a few years ago. Why did I ever cut it?! Oh yeah, because it was terribly damaged. The sad part of this story is the last time I grew my hair to the middle of my back it took about seven years!!

I am hoping my hair will grow faster this time around. I am not coloring it. This says a lot, since I am rocking more grey hairs then I would like! I am also trying not to use heat more than one time a week. I am also trying not to wash it as often. How often do you wash your hair? My usual wash routine was every other day. Now I am trying to only wash my hair one to two times a week, unless it gets extra dirty.

Does anyone know if not washing as often can lead to faster hair growth? I like that I can rock a hair style for an extra day, but I am having to use dry shampoo more often. Does dry shampoo have any negative effects on hair growth? If you have any tips or tricks for growing your hair quickly I would love to hear them! I am also going to start taking a multi-vitamin regularly!

It Still Holds True..

Tony and I will be married three years this summer. The last three years have been filled with waves of highs and lows in both our relationship and personally. We have had job changes, big moves, financial struggles, financial gains, we’ve disagreed, we’ve changed, we’ve grown, but even at our worst, I still wouldn’t pick anyone else to do life with.

One of my friends is getting married this summer and it has me feeling all sentimental. Since I am feeling sentimental I had to go back and listen to the song we played for our first dance as Mrs. and Mrs. It still holds true. The lyrics still say it all, so I thought I would share it with you all. My husband has always been the calm to my storm. He is my peace.

“When I look at you I see forgiveness. I see the truth. You love me for who I am, like the stars hold the moon. Right there where they belong and I know I am not alone.” No words could ever be truer. He knows more of me than anyone. I am not a perfect being. I am not always easy to be with and yet he always chooses to love me unconditionally.

Dear Tony, “Don’t you know you are beautiful.”

This Lipstick is Extra Special!

DSC01220

Hi!! I know I am not alone in this… I am totally one of those people who can hear a song and be taken back in time. I can smell a smell and instantly drift away in thought about a story linked to that exact smell. Since I am a makeup lover there are times that even makeup can bring me back to a certain time and place. The lipstick in the above picture is definitely one of those items for me!

Why is this lipstick so special? Well first let me tell you a little about the product. This is the Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick by Stila in the shade Fiore. When I went shopping for this lipstick I had some strict criteria. The lipstick had to be long wearing, transfer proof, and BOLD. These three things were all on my checklist for must have qualities! What was the special occasion? It was for my wedding day!!

I know there were people who thought I must be crazy when I told them I wanted to rock a bold and bright pink lipstick for my walk down the isle. Well, they were the crazy ones because it was perfect. This lip totally made my entire bridal look. I don’t regret going bold for even a moment. I also do not regret picking Stila for my bridal lip. I went to Sephora multiple times to get samples and ask for everyone’s opinion on the best long wear and transfer proof lipstick. This was definitely the best choice!

When the priest said “You may now kiss the bride,”  I had no worries and neither did my new hubby! This lipstick seriously stays put. If you are married you know how long your wedding day really is. If you aren’t married, let me warn you that your wedding day is really really long! This lipstick stayed put and was also comfortable. My lipsticks never felt overly dry which is impressive for any liquid lipstick. It did wear off as the day went along, but it wore off in a pretty way, not patchy!

This is not the only great liquid lip I have ever worn. There are other greats out there, but this one forever holds a special place in my makeup collection and heart! I don’t wear it often, but when I do I cannot help, but smile remembering the best day of my life!

…obviously I have to insert a wedding pic to show it off! 😉 Xoxo! Talk soon!!
