For The Hair

July 27, 2017

Good hair is work. I'm still bitter that I ever cut my hair back in 2012, or more recently colored it. I was strong and went a few years with my natural color, then randomly wanted a different color. Impulsive MacKenzie at her finest.

I've been "attempting" to use less heat. I put that in quotations because I said July would be a little-to-no-heat month and I feel like I'm doing OK at it. I tend to style my hair just 2-3 times a week. It's rough trying to not style it. If anyone has attempted this then you already know that dry shampoo is your best friend. Dry Bar has been my holy grail. They have a little bit of everything I need for specific days. One thing that I love is the dry conditioner. It's perfect for people with drier ends that need a pick-me-up without being forced to wash or use heavy oils.

The foam dry shampoo is a new thing, but for someone with straight, flat hair it works wonders. It gives me just enough volume and helps with the tousled look I tend to go for.

Give Dry Bar a try, You can go to any Sephora and try it out or even to a Dry Bar location. That's next on my list.

Peak Summer

July 24, 2017

The heat really prevents a lot. Thinking, functioning, or even wanting to dress up. If I get up and realize that it's going to be close to 90 degrees I grab a tee, jeans, and comfortable shoes. Shorts aren't really my forte. I rarely wear them, I'm just a jeans girl all the way.

The next few hot days will be spent inside with Netflix, face masks, a good book, and Tucker.

Nordstrom, Really?

July 21, 2017

Every single blogger is talking about the Nordstrom Sale. Why? it's one of the best sales of the year from one of the top multi-branded retailer. There was an early access timeframe for card holders to partake in before it opened to the masses, but now it's a free-for-all. I never used to shop the sale, until I discovered the great things on their website and the great prices. I'm a sucker for a steal.

I already got my fair share of shopping done, but I wanted to share a few of my picks and purchases. Everything is linked so click away! If you aren't a cardholder I highly recommend signing up. I don't use mine besides for the best sale of the year, and it is totally worth it. Just make sure if you are a shopaholic like me you pay it off right after the purchase!
