Get Your Style Fix at Walgreens!

A couple of months ago, my hairstyle changed pretty dramatically. I was able to donate 17 inches of hair and still have some to spare! This new cut took some getting used to, but once I figured out how to style it, I fell in love. It's so much easier to take care of and much cooler for summer. My hair has a bit of natural wave to it, so … [Read More...]

1 Year Spotify Premium Subscription Giveaway – Ends 7/24

It's been a rainy summer which is unusual for Alabama, so on days that we can't go to the pool, it's a challenge to keep a 2 and a 4 year old from going stir crazy and tearing the house apart.
