Monday Obsessions: Blogs and Hair Products

Well, I made it back from Wedding Weekend alive.  Really tired, but alive.  After dragging myself out of bed this morning at 9:30 (seriously, I never sleep this late!) I made my coffee and began catching up on all my blogs when I remembered that I had my own blog that was in dire need of an updated post.  Today is Monday after all, so you know what that means...time for an update on all the things we are obsessing over. 

Lately I am completely not obsessed with having to wash my hair every single day. Especially in the summer since when I do wash it and dry it and break out my fancy curling iron the humidity here in Georgia absolutely kills any dreams or illusions I may have had about having a good hair day as soon as I walk outside.  The best bet I have for even holding curl is the day after I have washed my hair when it's dry and starting to get a bit of texture.  Aside from my general use of baby powder to dry my scalp a bit since it basically functions as the cheapest dry shampoo ever, I have sought a little help from my favorite product line - Big Sexy Hair.  I can't always afford it, but all of their items work wonders on my super fine hair.  

Little A introduced me to this one. Just a bit on your hair kind of dries it up and allows me to get some extra volume on the top of my head.  It can kind of give you that "2nd Day" hair feel on day one, or you can use it on a day when you aren't going to wash it.  It's not crazy expensive and it will last you a while. 

If you have more money than me (most people do) then you can also try this Aveda Pure Abundance Hair Potion.  Our hairdresser for the wedding put this everywhere on my hair for volume and I'm tempted to spare $24 to go and grab some. It just makes your hair follicles swell up magically.   

Also, I am sure you all already know about both of these blogs, but I am behind the times (as usual) because I really don't make a ton of time to just sit on the computer and read unless I am wasting time on Pinterest.  I am a new-comer these but I am completely obsessed with  The Everygirl  and  Wendy's Lookbook!!!  

Why I love {The Everygirl} -- It seems to be for just what it says -- every girl.  And, they are always featuring items that are budget friendly and elements for all parts of your life. Not just fashion. Not just stuff to decorate your home with. Not just entertaining ideas and etiquette.  They address every part of your life and they seem nice and cute and I feel like we are friends.  


Why I love {Wendy's Lookbook} -- Even though I read a lot of "fashion" blogs just to see what people are wearing, I am not that in love with, well, any of them. Except this one.  First, this girl is seriously beautiful beyond belief, but I follow her on Twitter and she seems incredibly kind and giving. She does some charity work, makes fun YouTube videos, and while she loves fashion, it doesn't seem to be the only important thing in her life.  While most of her posts are clothes, she also writes a bit about other things in her life, but keeps a central focus while doing this.  It's kinda hard for me to explain since I am still not quite awake -- but check her out if you haven't seen her stuff. Impeccable style. I want every outfit she wears. For real.  Most of the fashion bloggers seem like they are just trying too hard in a lot of the posts I see.  Except for Wendy. She is as effortless as Kate Middleton. 

What blogs do you love? What can't you live without when you fix your hair?

Happy Monday! Here's to a great week for everyone.

Love you. Mean it.

  1. I haven't tried those powders, but I love the Osis Dust It!

    1. I may have to check that one out, too! Lots of good reviews! Ended up grabbing the Aveda, so I am trying to practice with it so I can get it to work how I want it to. Summer humidity is like a death sentence for my hair.
