joico-blonde-life-violet-shampoo

During my drastic cut and color, I blurted out, “I need to get purple shampoo. First thing in the morning.” I was experiencing what I will call “brass anxiety.” My hair has red undertones, so whenever I go lighter I fear my strands turning tawny.

The Best Drugstore Scar Treatment

Scar Away Silicone Sheets for C Section Scars

I am one of those people who do not scar well. This definitely scared me when I realized I would most likely opt for a c-section with my second and third babies. My first scar wasn’t looking great, so I was relieved when my doctor told me they would remove it when I had second c-section this past March. I tried a few scar treatments the first time around, but it wasn’t until my surgeon recommended a particular brand of…

A judgemental woman approached me as I was getting ready in a swim coverup in the gym locker room after my workout, “you’re putting on makeup to go to the pool?” she asked, adding that she goes bare faced. Yes, I have a poolside beauty routine. We all should. First and foremost, even the lowest maintenance of us MUST protect the delicate skin on our faces. “To each their own,” I told her.
