The Power of Olaplex

I've been coloring my hair since my early teens. Shocker right?! I've had every shade of blonde possible and every color in between.  During my early twenties I even changed my hair back to my natural color which is light brown.  This was only for a couple years. Each time I looked in the mirror with brown hair, I had a hard time recognizing myself.  I was blonde as a child and only had brown hair for maybe a decade before I started coloring it myself.  I just feel better blonde and feel lik...

You ARE a Glamorous Mom

When I'm out and about (especially during the school year) another beautiful mom usually compliments me and likes either my heels or my outfit and graces me a few sweet words to let me know she loves my outfit.  I'm not perfect, but I do try to leave the house looking like myself and that's usually done up with great hair, make up and shoes to remember.
