Keepin' Things Simple

Ooopps! It's been a while. But I have lots to tell you now so if your procrastinating something right now you're in luck. 

This is what I am wearing.. Right now! I haven't taken outfit pictures in a long long time. As you saw in my last post I'm asking for a tripod and remote for Christmas, which will, I'm sure, lead to more of those. You can see my pretty new room in the background. Unfortunately I have to leave it, but they just keep getting better, so the future is bright!

[shirt] an Italian brand that I can't read while it's on my body.. [skirt] goodwill; hemmed [belt] goodwill [tights] Wal-Mart [boots] Wal-Mart (( the ones I wear all the time ))

I have been curling my hair a lot recently. The kind of curls where you just wrap your hair around the barrel of the curling iron.. Does that actually have a name? Either way I love how my hair turns out when I do this. The 2nd day after you wash your hair is always such a great hair day. For those of you who just said "Ew, no. My hair is so greasy!" There is hope! If you want to wash your hair less it's a marginally annoying process, but so worth not having to wash everyday. It's even healthier for your hair! 1st you must suffer through a couple days of greasy hair. Just do it over the weekend, and dig our all your cute hats. I can go 3 days without washing my hair.. my sceret.. it's actually not a secret.. Which is the 2nd step, dry shampoo! I am an old school girl so I use Psssssst Instant Spray Shampoo. I can only find it at Walgreens, and it's about $5 for a bottle.

My Mom can remember this being around when she was a kid. Matt's Grandma told me she used to use it when she was still finger waving her hair (( Ah! I LOVE HER! )). It works, trust me. However I do caution you that sometimes you get a rogue bottle that seems to just randomly spray in crazy directions and ends  up all over your mirror. I have also tried the TRESemme Dry Shampoo.

I did not like it. For those of you who have not used a dry shampoo, you can either get them in the color of your hair, or, like both Psssssst and TRESemme, white. They come out in a sort of powder that you let sit on your hair for a couple minutes (( to absorb the oil )) and then you just sort of toss your hair about, or use a brush (( I'd recommend a bore-bristle bush .. I use a fake one, works fine. Don't spend $100+ on a hairbrush or you need to stop reading my blog cause you're dumbbb )) The thing I didn't like about the TRESemme brand was that it left my hair feeling really dry and dull in color. Yuck. 

There's my little review on Dry Shampoo. When I get a real job and have cash to splurge on something I am trying the Bumble & Bumble brand. It's $35 for a 4.4oz.. Yikes. But it is a colored powder and I am so curious as to how a professional dry shampoo works in comparison. If you already use dry shampoo, what brand do you use? Why do you like it?

Alright I'll be back with another post shortly!

  1. Your look amazing! Your room looks adorable too! I hope I get to see it in person before you move.

    I bought that TRESemme dry shampoo about a month ago. I HATE IT! It made my hair look and feel dirtier than it really was. I'm going to have to try the Psssst because I would really love to not have to wash my hair everyday.

    P.S. Thanks for allowing to procrastinate just a little longer.
