Happy Friday, friends! Today begins our Spring Break and we have nothing planned for the week. I can’t decide if this is a good idea or not yet. I will keep you posted. In the meantime, we are renovating our other bathroom (as we speak) and are finally getting a small taste of Spring weather. I am so thankful for both of these things finally happening. When you see the before pictures of my bathroom you will understand the sheer delight that I am experiencing at making the space actually functional. Is it also okay to say that I have been in a complete winter rut on my happy list? I hope so!
I thought it would be fun to share the 3 little things of some of my favorite friends and bloggers in the upcoming weeks. Sometimes your comments below are the highlight of the whole list. You guys have some amazing lists! In fact, if you want to be a guest poster for the happy list on Fridays, send me a list like these to email@example.com and I will feature your list for the week! You need NOT be a blogger to share your happiness. In fact, if you are a regular reader here, it is the least I can do.
Here is what is making me happy this week!
I don’t know if it makes me happy to know that my gray is now sprouting up between color jobs BUT I am happy to know that there is a quick solution for this busy mama. I decided to give the Nice & Easy Root Touch-Up kit a spin between my at-home coloring. I am going to say that if you want to get more bang for your buck out of this product, read the first review and you will see that you can really get a lot for your money with this one. I wish I would have read that before I did my hair so you can learn from my mistake. This kit made my hair look better in ten minutes flat and (the majority) of my gray disappear. I highly recommend it for a quick touch-up between colorings or appointments.
I am always on the hunt for new colors once the weather warms up and this Almay Smart Shade Lipbutter in Red is just the perfect summer red. Usually lipstick dries my lips out and don’t get me started on how hard it can be to find an ideal red that doesn’t scream Cabaret. This one is lovely and natural looking. The lipbutter (that’s how they have it labeled on their packaging although it feels like a typo smooshed together) is supposed to adjust to your skin tone. Bolder than a gloss, it’s a good one if are just jumping into lipstick or embracing the reds.
Marriage Right Side Up
Oh, you must take a few moments to watch this incredible award-winning short film that completely captured my heart. Head Over Heels is one of the most beautiful little short films I have ever seen and brought a little tear to my eye thanks to its sweet story & beauty. This Oscar-nominated film was recently unleashed online and it couldn’t have made me happier. This is one you can watch with your kids and would be particularly appreciated by any budding artists or directors in your house.
