Dove Hair : #LoveYourCurls

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Dove Hair, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #LoveYourCurls #pmgdove

When was the last time you looked at your hair and said "hey hair, thanks for being you!" Not often I'm sure.  It took me years to truly understand and appreciate my hair for all that it is. I always had wavy/messy curls that never looked right, and for years it frustrated me. I have never been the girl who can get out of the shower- and air dry with no issues. It's always been a work in progress for me. I would constantly wear my hair up because I couldn't deal with how my hair handled humidity or any kind of rain situation.

I finally decided to start loving my hair and realizing that there are so many great things about it. I love how thick and wavy it is, and I also love the wavy curly ringlets that come along with it. Even though they aren't tame like I want them to be- I wouldn't have it any other way. I know most women want what they can't have, but it's time we all start embracing what we were born with. Loving something about yourself can seem difficult, especially when you don't feel like it's what you want. My best advice? Learn to roll with it. If your hair is wavy in the wrong ways- start using products that help keep it looking shiny and great. 

In the last few years I have learned how to tame my waves, and it's made so much of a difference for me. Although my hair may not be perfect- I think it's pretty perfect for me, and that's all that matters.

I am so excited to be teaming up with Dove Hair today, and to be able to share that they have an awesome Dove Love Your Curls Emoji keyboard! It's so awesome to be able to customize what your hair looks like in emoji form! Curly hair for the win!

First Home Must-Haves -- The Best Vacuum You'll Ever Need

When moving into a new place, one of the most important things  to have, is something that is going to help clean up all the messes. Prior to moving into the house we live in now, I grew up in a home with hardwood floors. I never really understood how to deal with carpet, or how dirty it can get. Between us, Oliver, and everyone coming in and out when they visit, I always try to make sure that our home is as clean as it can be. 

I am so excited to be teaming up with Hoover today to talk about their Air cordless vacuum. Before going cordless, it never even crossed my mind that there would be such a lightweight vacuum that got the job done, and did it all so quickly! I can clean my house in half the time, I can pick up every piece of dust and fuzz in the carpet, all while doing so- cord free! You don't realize how convenient it is to go cordless, until you try it. Once you go cordless- you can't go back!

What I really love about it is how easy it is to push around the carpet, how it slides easily around turns, and how it fits under places like the couch, and tables! The battery charges, and last long, and there is a light that shines from the bottom of the vacuum so you can see exactly what you're doing- day or night. This line has 4 cordless cleaners—3 vacuums and a hard floor wet cleaner.

I truly feel like this vacuum is a game changer in the home. I've never felt so confident about my clean carpet, and overall clean feeling in the house.

I'll Be Napping

Naps are great aren't they? Unfortunately sleep has not been the top thing on my priority list as of late mostly due to the fact that there are too many things to get done, and not enough hours in the day. You feel me? Although I struggle to find time to do things some days, I try to stay as positive as I can. This shirt really says it all. It's super comfortable, and can be worn with so many different outfits. I like this casual/edgy look with the higher boots, but it's also a great shirt to lounge around the house in. 

I look pretty angry in all of these pictures, which is actually the opposite of how I felt that day. It just so happened that when we stepped out to take these, the sun decided to take turns peeking out. It varied from warm to chilly, so the face I am making is mostly due to the wind, not my actual feelings that day! 

Bloggers have the best time of year during summer-fall. Once the Fall is over, photographing outfits becomes more difficult. Not only is it pitch black by 5 pm, but it's hard to look cute with 30 layers on, a hat, a scarf and gloves. Although I love the winter, I find myself becoming a hermit more and more.  I avoid leaving the house, and enjoy rearranging furniture, decorating, baking, and just making our house feel more like a home. (I guess this means I'm getting old right?)

For now, I am enjoying the last bits of warmer weather, all while secretly wishing for the cold to set in so I have a reason to make a fort out of blankets and lay with Ollie all day.
