tips & advice



my family and

little ones



Raising little ones is all consuming. We worry if we are doing enough… we worry if we are doing too much… We find ourselves concentrating so hard on our littles & wonder what is left of the person we were before their arrival.

Friday Favorites | Hair Tools


Friday Favorites

Summer mode means a lot of braids and natural waves around here… but friends, back to school it looming which means back to morning routine and back to styling the hair…

And really, I don’t mind – something about fixing my hair slows me down and calms me. Maybe it’s my zen. Or maybe I’m just still trying to play beauty salon like I did as a kid…

So here we go: three of my favorite tools for gettin’ pretty…

Amika Polished Perfection Styling Brush

So I will be totally honest and say that I was super skeptical that this brush would actually work – I don’t know, it just seemed like a long shot. And while this is not going to replace you flat iron if you want poker straight locks, I do love this for making mornings quick. While I bought it for myself, I have found that I use it most on my daughter’s in the mornings. It is absolutely perfect for smoothing out their rumpled bed-head.

When you use it, you definitely want to section off your hair and then brush from underneath in order for it to work. I love the way it smooths down the frizz too. Oh, and a huge bonus, the brush feature creates a barrier between the heat and your hands – meaning I am fully comfortable letting my girls style their own hair. Which is a win-win — they get to gain some independence & take ownership of their appearance and I get one less thing to be responsible for in the mornings.
