My book reading as of late is all over the place. I go back and forth from fiction to non-fiction and lots memoirs. The latest joy is reading It was Me Along by Andie Mitchell and the writer behind the blog Can You Stay for Dinner. It’s the story of Andie’s struggles with food. It’s […]

Last Girl Standing with Aveda Stress-Fix

Aveda Stress FIx

This week has been hectic. I’m still in Louisiana and trying to sort through my emotions on losing my brother. Needless to say I need all the relaxation I can get.

Earth Nectar Scalp Oil

  If you are feeling the dryness of winter in your hair I highly recommend Earth’s Nectar Green Olive & Lavender Scalp Oil.

  It’s National Bubble Bath Day. Can I get an Amen! So, I decided that I needed more bath products in my life. I take a lot of baths, but I tend to keep using the same products over and over. I decided to use the weekends for the true luxury products. The ones that I will […]

I’m Glossy Thanks to Oribe Curl Gloss

  My hair stylist Q turned me on this curling creme. Every time I get my haircut I bring my trusty Paul Mitchell Foaming Pomade. Don’t get me wrong. I love my Paul Mitchell, but one day she said let’s mix them together. I decided to trust her even though I really didn’t want to. […]
