Happy Friday, friends! I missed sharing this post last week with you, but it was nice to take a break over the 4th of July weekend. There has been so much happening over here that I can’t wait to share with you. If you are following me on Instagram, you might have caught a few sneak peeks- this whole ’60’s home is going through some major transforming this year. We are putting the finishing touches on some home projects that will completely blow your mind. I can’t believe this is my house. I can’t wait to reveal all of that to you soon! In the meantime, here are some things that are making me happy this week!
I Finally Have Frizz-Free Locks
I have the coarsest hair and in the summer months, it frizzes up in the heat and humidity.
I don’t want you to be wondering what that might look like. It looks just like this. I bought this awesome L’Oreal Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray and I finally have frizz-free locks. It was one of those things that I picked up on a whim and decided to give it a try, but had no expectations that it would work well because it was only around $5. The first day I used it, my girlfriend asked if I had done something different with my hair. It works that good. Although I have never been able to go three days without washing my hair, it holds for that long and does a great job straightening your hair with just a blow dryer or can be used dry with your hair straightener. I highly, highly recommend this for your arsenal of hair tools.

Liner That Stays
Ever since I first started wearing make-up, I have always worn Cover Girl Eye Liner. I have found though that in the summer, within hours it had faded or had moved under my eyes in other places. I decided to try to find a new eyeliner to help remedy that and discovered Revlon ColorStay Eye Liner. It is the first eyeliner that I have tried that stays on until I go to bed. It goes on creamy, stays on all day, and is easy to remove with a little eye make-up remover. I can’t recommend it enough. Perfectly lined eyes in the summer months are definitely making this girl happy!
Tea That’s Just Right
Have you ever had Honest Tea before? This has been one of my favorite treats since I gave up my soda. It’s the perfect summer drink and has just the right amount of sweetness in it. I have been a longtime fan and the company emailed and asked if they could send me a box of tea to enjoy this summer- no obligations or anything (which is pretty rare when you are a blogger.) I absolutely love it and I have had so much fun trying all the different varieties. The Pomegranate Blue has been a big family favorite and I have enjoyed the Peach White Tea and Honey Green Tea at the pool this week. I like that these aren’t overly sweet and that the real flavors pull through in these drinks. If you love tea, you will love these. Honest.
And for a bonus happy this week, you can check out this fun dance routine that I got to do with my dance teacher Abbi, from Tu Sei Bella, that was so much fun to do for her YouTube channel. What says summer more than Gettin’ Jiggy Wit’ It? I mean, seriously. Who wants to go to dance class with me? You can learn all the moves on her channel! They also happen to be running a Groupon this week for the classes so you don’t have to spend very much to try it! Just type in “Tu Sei Bella,” and the current Groupon should appear. And saving money always makes this girl get jiggy wit’ it!
If you saw me in dance class, you would witness one of the happiest moments of my week every week. It has been a life-changer for my spirit and confidence not to mention my favorite things to do with my girlfriends.
