Hi there! It has been a minute since I've been on here. I hope you have had a good start to your summer so far. Things definitely have been different in terms of summer activities, haven't they? I'm not sure where you are located, but here in Southern Pennsylvania lots of things are still closed down. We are fortunate enough to belong to a camp ground where we can social distance, hike around and go to the pool. They limit the hours you can swim, and there's "social distance seating"..ie bring your own chair, etc. I am thankful for the little things, and just happy that we can still go at all. All community pools here are closed this year, and let me tell you it has been HOT! 90's most days.
I put together a few summery pieces that have been on rotation for me in my wardrobe. I love a nice swim suit cover up. Something to keep the sun off my shoulders, and they just look classy!! I've also been using it as a kimono to go along with everyday outfits as well. So versatile!
The lace cover up is from Walmart, very affordable and the quality is pretty good too. It can be worn so many ways, with swimsuits, cutoffs and a tank like I did, over a maxi dress or even a mini dress too. I have to keep snagging it back from my daughter because she likes it as well!
I found one on Amazon that is almost identical to mine, and theirs is also available in black, which is great too.
I am loving this black side lace swimsuit from Amazon as well. I think the textured fabric really kicks it up a notch. This one comes in black, burgundy and a couple blue variations. The sizing also goes up to XXL.
Hey there, how are you? How's your week going so far? I'm still in shock that we are in July NOW!
I spent the better part of my week organizing some of my Poshmark items I’ve picked up and working on revamping my website here! I still have some tweaking to do, but progress is good right?!
Today I wanted to tell you about my new hair care journey. A quick back story about my hair..ugh, where to begin? Well, about a year and a half ago I got sick of my long red,curly dry hair and cut it off into a wedge. That was a huge mistake for me. It was an adorable cut, but for my lifestyle as a Mom and School Bus Driver it didn’t work for me.
As my hair has grown out, I have noticed just how much thinner it has gotten, and it scared me!! I've always had very thick curly hair and it seriously felt like I had a tiny baby pony tail at this point!
There are a number of factors that can contribute to hair loss. For me, it’s menopause. I’d say the last 6 years my body has been all over the place with the hormones, and it’s taken it’s toll on my hair, as well as lightening it to this blonde shade. If you are concerned about hairloss too, whether you are going through the change of life or something else, just touch base with your Doctor to make sure that you are in good health!
I had heard of Monat from other You-tubers but was skeptical to try it. Finally I found a distributor on Instagram and thought I’d give it a try.
I chose the Renew Shampoo for Medium dry hair. It smells really wonderful. A nice light floral scent. It helps hydrate and thicken my hair!
I picked up the Intense Repair Conditioner too. It has a great menthol tea tree smell. Both are infused with Rejuvenique. One major factor that made me decide to try Monat is that their products non toxic and cruelty free as well as Paraben, SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) and Phthalate free.
Though it’s only been a month of me using this line, I’d definitely say from day 1 my hair has felt fuller to the touch, shinier and cleaner too. Often times two days after a wash my hair is looking greasy at the scalp. Curly hair can’t be washed everyday or it will become a dry mess.
Here’s some pictures of my thin hairline, and what I'm working with...don’t mind those gray hairs hahaha!!
I decided to join Monat VIP program so that I could benefit from their awesome discounts. Plus in my order I received a full size Lash and Brow Serum for FREE, and I believe it is valued at $59, that's a steal!
I will be updating you here and there on my hair journey. Let me know what you think, if you've experienced hair loss and if you have products you would like to recommend. If you would like to experience Monat for yourself I have a code for you to use when you sign up as a VIP you can get $20. off your next order.
