Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween, everyone! I'm so excited for little Brooks to have his first Halloween. I couldn't resist putting him in this adorable monkey costume. He wasn't too thrilled, but it's just one of many costumes I will force him to wear so I can take pictures of his insane cuteness. Maybe he'll understand one day.

B is not quite old enough to trick or treat yet, so we're planning on taking him to a pumpkin patch and hay ride. I know he won't remember it, but I think he'll enjoy it at the time. 

At work yesterday, we all wore fun costumes. Danita was the Chesire Cat, Krissy was a panda. We also had a scarecrow, fox, cat, and skeleton! Of course, I had to be a unicorn. No surprise there. I'm soooo in love with my costume. I'm honestly tempted to just wear it every day. I feel like I am my true self in it. A majestic unicorn.

AVEDA Thickening Tonic Review

Since I have such fine textured hair, I'm always on the lookout for volumizing and thickening hair products. I posted my regular hair plumping regimen a few months ago. If you haven't read it, you can here! I still love that product combo, but I have recently started using AVEDA Thickening Tonic. I typically pair it with the Volumizing Tonic even though it's amaaaazzzing all by itself! This thickening tonic coats and expands each strand without feeling dirty or sticky. That's not easy to find!

Price - $28

Smell - Like every other AVEDA product... a heavenly arrangement of foliage.

How to use - On damp hair, spray from roots to ends in sections and comb through to evenly distribute. Blow-dry and style as desired.

Likes - It's very light so it doesn't weigh my hair down. It makes my hair look and feel super thick.

Dislikes - There's nothing I don't love about this product.

Needless to say, I definitely recommend this product for all fine-haired folks! By the way, *shameless plug* if you live nearby, we sell it at our salon so ask me about it at your next visit!

OOTD Featuring Rocksbox

I got my second Rocksbox jewelry set and I've been looooving it! This time, I got a gorgeous statement necklace by Sharp 9, an adorable arrow ring by House of Harlow, and a Gorjana gold V necklace (not pictured in this post). I'm obsessed! Prior to having this Rockbox subscription, I was going through a "no jewelry" phase. Aside from my wedding ring, I just had no interest in wearing any accessories with my outfits. Normally that's not like me, but I guess I was just in a rut. A rut that Rocksbox has pulled me out of! 

So far, they haven't sent me any pieces that I haven't absolutely loved! This is in part because I got to show them all the types of jewelry I like by adding them to my "wishlist" after signing up. Then a stylist from Rocksbox picks out three pieces that she thinks I'll like and makes sure that at least one of them is from my wishlist. These pieces are all lent to me so I can wear them for a while, and when I'm ready for new pieces, I just ship these back and wait for more! Also, if I like any particular piece, I can buy it at a discounted price. It's pretty neat stuff... And I'm not just saying that. I'm thoroughly into it.

Brooks Wilder: Eight Months

This evening, we stopped by a food truck, Taqueria Ferrus, to pick up dinner. This truck has THE BEST tacos in town. Hands down. If you live in Tupelo, you have to try it. Anyway, we grabbed our food and went to the park to have a little picnic to celebrate Brooks' 8th month of life. I'm a few days behind, but better late than never. 

Brooks loves playing outside, and the weather tonight was just perfect for it! We let him swing for a few minutes, which he has started to really love more and more. He just smiles and giggles the whole time! Then, we took a walk around the park while watching the sun set. B loved standing up in his stroller and people watching the whole time. He loves getting doted on by passers-by too. That little fella knows how to put on the charm!
