Things I’m Loving: April & May Edition

Since I missed April due to an editing spree, I thought I’d share the things that I have been loving throughout April and May. It sounds like there should be a lot… but there aren’t. And I truly have loved both of these items through the two months.

Boy Meets World

I’m sure that by now you have all heard the amazing news that there will be a sequel to Boy Meets World! (And if you haven’t, what rock have you been living under?) In fact, I think that I wrote about it right after it was announced and twitter was abuzz with excitement. I haven’t watched Boy Meets World since it was actually airing so I decided that in preparation for Girl Meets World I should watch it again. I think I love it just as much as I did back then!

Leave-In Condition & Argan Oil

Have you ever introduced a product into your skin care or hair care regimen and wondered if it was actually doing anything special? That’s what happened with these products. I work hard to take care of my hair. I put it through a lot coloring it every eight weeks so I like to give it as much love as possible in between. I drink a green smoothie (nearly) every day, which I think has done a lot for my hair and I rarely (pretty much never) use heat. I’m a big fan of overnight buns for curling, braids for crimping and air drying. But I was looking for something else to do to my hair, I just didn’t know what it was. Then, I accidentally picked up these products. For some reason I thought the leave-in conditioner was hairspray (even though their hairspray comes in completely different packaging) and the guy at the salon convinced me to buy this combo pack for only a couple dollars extra. When I realized what I had I almost returned it but thought that I would give it a try. Like I said, I wasn’t sure if it was actually doing anything at first and then I didn’t use. And I knew that it was actually doing a lot for my hair. It felt so different when I didn’t use it and I didn’t like how it felt. I use both of these products after I wash my hair. I let my hair sit for a little bit right after I wash it and then I spray it with the leave-in conditioner. After that I brush my hair with my wet brush. I know I’ve talked about my love for my tangle teezer before, and that brush is amazing! I’ve heard that you can use it on wet hair, but I prefer my wet brush for that as its bristles seem to be a little bit sturdier. After that I put on the oil and brush my hair again. And that’s how it works.

Best Book of May

And since we’re already almost halfway through June, I thought that I’d talk about the best book that I read in May in this post, too. Surprisingly, the best book that I read last moth was non-fiction. That doesn’t happen often, believe me! The book is Honor Bound: My Journey to Hell and Back with Amanda Knox by Raffaele Sollecito. I’m not going to go into any speculation about whether or not they were or were not involved in the murder, but seeing as how this was one of the first big cases that I tuned into I wanted to read Sollecito’s and Knox’s books as soon as I heard about them. Though I knew what the outcome would be, this book had me turning pages. I almost read the entire book in one sitting but eventually decided that I should get some actual work done around the house. I’m currently reading Knox’s book.

    I'm obsessed with those hair products! I use the "sexy straight" I think it's called.. it's a spray to tame the frizzies… I think. I use it because it smells good and makes my hair shiny, haha.

    Do you have your e-mail enabled on your blog? I can never seem to respond to your comments! And I can't find a way to follow your blog! (Unless that's intentional, in which case, that's totally fine, haha)

    I should look into that product! Sometimes my hair feels a little unmanageable because it can be a little frizzy! I love the products too! 🙂

    I don't think so. I need to look into that this week or weekend. Also, I need to look into allowing people to follow my blog because that is not intentional. 🙂

    I desperately want to read both those books surrounding the Knox trial!!

    I recently started using Argan oil as well, and I love it!
