I love me a Friday!!
Today, I'm sharing some of my favorite things from the week and linking up with Narci, Andrea and Erika too! Happy Friday friends!
I'm going to start with hair.
A few weeks ago, I mentioned how I have been using apple cider vinegar in my hair before I shampoo and condition once a week or so to get the gunk out (you know...all of that product build up like dry shampoo that gets on your roots). Well, well, well, several people mentioned that baking soda mixed into your shampoo does the same job. The other night, I added about a 1/2 a tablespoon of baking soda to my quarter sized amount of shampoo and made a paste in the shower (yes, I took a ramekin of baking soda into the shower with me...) before shampooing. And ladies, this worked so well! Dare I say, it worked better than the vinegar??? I think I liked it for two reasons, one it really made my hair feel super clean (especially on the roots!) and two, I only had to wash out two things (the shampoo paste and then my conditioner) instead of three (vinegar, shampoo and conditioner). Try it! It really worked!!
Speaking of hair...I found us a new hair product!! I was at Sephora last week buying me a new bottle of Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray (remember me talking about it when I shared my favorite hair products?) when the nice girl working there said I should try their new formula instead because it's not as drying and crunchy (which even though I love the regular Surf Spray, I can see how it might be a little of both). This new Surf Infusion is kind of like the regular Surf Spray mixed with a hydrating oil, so it's very moisturizing, smells so good and totally gives you the same beachy waves texture. Love, love, love, love! If you normally buy the Surf Spray, you should go out on a limb and try the Surf Infusion next time!
One of my favorite things this week was to read through your comments on names! I love reading about how you got your names and why you picked the names you did for your kiddos. If you're a pregnant mama out there needing ideas for baby names, you should read through these comments. This makes me want to have 10 more kids just so I can name them :).
Sheaffer, Mel and I are excited to share with you our new link up beginning next Wednesday! The last Wednesday of every month we will have a What's Up Wednesday link up! Mel and I have already done two of these over the last two months. You can see mine here.
Here's what you do...on the last Wednesday of each month, you do a What's Up Wednesday post and answer these questions...
Each month, we'll also have an extra seasonal question. This month, the question is...
What are you getting your mom (or what do you want) for Mother's Day this year?
Add this question to the end of your post after you answer the other questions. Then link up with us on Wednesday morning.
We want to know what's up with you!
