MY SECRET FOR A GREAT HAIR DAY WITH PANTENE INTENSE RESCUE SHOTS

MY SECRET FOR A GREAT HAIR DAY WITH PANTENE INTENSE RESCUE SHOTS

Last fall I shared about my postpartum hair changes and thankfully is has improved drastically! My hair loss has tapered and scalp is a lot healthier than it was six months ago. However, I’m convinced the texture of my hair is forever changed. I color my hair a few times a year and even though that’s not super frequent, my hair feels brittle and breaks all the time especially around my face.

SURVIVING SPRING DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME WITH A TODDLER

When Piper was four months old we started working with virtual sleep trainer, Eat Play Sleep and she was a game changer for us! Piper was your typical newborn, waking up every 3-4 hours for the first few months but month three was super tough. I’m convinced Piper was outsmarting us!

FUN DATE NIGHT GIFTS IDEAS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

The first couple years of our relationship, Trent and I only did experiential gifts for Valentine’s Day. We used to always get each other a fun card with the date night description or tickets tucked inside. To be honest, Christmas JUST happened.

DOCUMENTING PIPER'S FIRST YEAR

DOCUMENTING PIPER'S FIRST YEAR

t’s hard to believe two weeks from today we’ll be celebrating Piper June turning one! It seems like just yesterday we brought her home from the hospital. When I was pregnant I promised myself I’d do my best to document her on a weekly basis and make a photo book. To be honest, the photo book process always overwhelmed me so I never did it. Organizing photos on my phone and computer seemed like such a daunting task so until now, we haven’t printed any photos of Piper.
