Guys I love my shorter hair!! I know I only cut around 3 inches off but it just feels so good. Remember a while ago when I dyed my hair pink? Well the pink wouldn’t fade out so I had to bleach it back – and it really damaged my hair in the process. It felt so dry and dead on the ends. I gave myself a little trim then and have been really good to it since but I still needs those three inches gone and I am so glad I finally did. In addition to cutting off my ends I decided to challenge myself to a little summer hair rehab. I was telling my sisters about what I have been doing the last few weeks and they were like, you should make it a challenge and tell your readers! And I thought it was a cute idea so here I am!

A week or so ago I colored my hair a shade darker! I wanted a more natural looking blonde that could grow out easier and could look richer. So here it is! For as long as I can remember I have had blonde hair and will probably always have blonde hair. This is probably the darkest I will ever go and I still consider this really blonde. The thing with my blonde color is it always pulls really yellow, which I don’t love! Purple shampoos often make my hair so dry so I was excited when Kérastase launched their advanced new color correcting system, Reflection Chromatique! This is a personalized hair care system that works for each woman’s unique color. Using the system will help your color stay rich and vibrant while keeping unwanted shades away.

The collection has two shampoos (one is sulfate-free and one is for drier hair), a conditioner and masque.

Since being in Arizona, David and I found ourselves saying “the heat isn’t that bad!” We would look and see that it was 102 or so and think, this doesn’t feel as bad as I thought. I grew up in Arizona so I am used to it but haven’t lived here in 9 years. Anyways, today we were totally eating our words haha! I think the temps were around 116 and it definitely felt 116. It was rough even walking from the car to the ice cream shop! Am I dramatic? It really was! Ice cream was for sure necessary today. The kids were pretty cute eating their ice cream and I love that it takes them like 30 minutes to barely make a dent in it haha. *also side note: did anyone notice that the otter pops at Costco are now made with no artificial flavors OR colors/dyes?

Happpppy Birthday Atticus!!!!!! I cannot believe he is three!!! I remember being a new mom with him and just napping and snuggling our days away. I loved our time just us together so much and I think every mom has a special bond with the first because of that special alone time you get. My sweet boy is insanely enthusiastic and isn’t afraid to show it! He gets incredibly excited about dogs and babies. If he sees your baby he will come up and hug and try to hold them ha! And make funny faces to make them smile. Oh and he will go get anyone in sight to make sure they come see the baby too 🙂 That is one thing I love about Atticus, if he is enjoying something he wants everyone to experience and enjoy it too. When he pets a dog he always asks me to come pet the dog too, or if he is eating yummy food he has to give everyone a taste.
