The Start of Hair Training

So while scrolling through Instastories a few weeks ago, I came across my friend Rachel’s stories about hair training!!! I was instantly intrigued because who doesn’t want to go longer without having to wash and fix their hair?

So I started following Jasmine Hair Co and ordered all the things:

  1. light weight dry shampoo

  2. good quality shampoo and conditioner

  3. heavy dry shampoo

  4. a shine brush

  5. a wet brush

Y’all this has been amazing!!!! I already go a long time without washing my hair, but it looks like a grease pit, and I normally have to wear a ball cap for most of the days.

So what am I doing?

  • On wash days, I brush my hair really really good. Then I wash my scalp really good. Next, I wash my hair itself. Then I condition it. I rinse it out and then blast it with really cold water at the end.

  • Once I finish washing it I brush it out really good and dry it going in the opposite direction.

  • I fix it as normal.

  • Each night and morning, I brush it really good, apply dry shampoo, scrub it in, and then brush it again.

I have to say the brushing it and the dry shampoo are the two most important changes for me. I use the lighter dry shampoo the first part of the week and the heavier the later part of the week!!! This has been a huge game changer for me and can we just talk about the time it saves??!!!

Give my sweet friend @mrsrachelcox and @jasminehairco a follow!!!

I don’t know about y’all but I am so glad to see spring approaching!!! I wanted to hop on and share with y’all a fun transition into spring dress I found on Amazon recently!!!

I ordered this dress expecting it to come in and be a flop, but to my surprise it came in and fit perfectly and was great quality for the price!!!

Now that I'm a mom I look for different things when I am buying something to wear. I need it to be long enough that I don’t have to worry about bending over. I need it to not be something I am constantly having to think about whether it be length or cleavage area when I am bending over to pick up that toy or pacifier!!

This dress fit the criteria and the best part it was under $30 on Amazon Prime!!!

Also, the shoes I paired with it are a pair of blush heels from Target!!! I have had them close to a year now and LOVE them!!! I have tried some similar in a more expensive brand, and these are just as good as far as quality and comfort goes!!! They are also under $30!!!

Hey y’all I wanted to pop on today to share with you a little about our showers and share with you some really unique gifts that we were given that I will always cherish!!! Now don’t get me wrong every mom to be needs diapers and wipes. I promise that gift never got old!! Madi Walker is almost 6 months old, and we have just now had to start buying them ourselves!!

Now on to the unique gifts that we received…

  1. Is a gift I actually asked for from my mom. She wanted to get me something special, and I knew just what I wanted. It is a gold necklace with Madi Walker’s heart beat from one of my ultrasounds engraved on it. It is something that I wear just about daily and something that I will always hold close to my heart. I am not a big jewelry person but just about each piece I wear holds a sentimental meaning and this necklace is no different!!!

  2. Is a blanket that belonged to Brandon’s cousin that passed away, Steve. It was one of his baby blankets. It also came with a note written to Madi Walker from Steve. It was such a sweet and thoughtful gift that we will always cherish.

  3. Is a little footprint kit. It came with a cute little canvas and an ink pad. Once we got home from the hospital we did her footprints on it and have it in our living room. It was such a unique gift that we absolutely love and will probably love even more as she grows up.

  4. Things passed down from our family. My mom passed down my Christening dress, lots of my childhood books, and many more things. Brandon’s mom passed down lots of things also. One of my favorites is her baby bracelet from when she was little and Brandon’s rocking horse. We are both very sentimental and loved each and everything that was passed down to us.

  5. Handmade gifts. These gifts were so special because we know there was so much thought and time put in each one of them just for our little girl!! We received several handmade blankets, shoes, and outfits. They were each very different but each so special!! Not only are they beautiful but just knowing the thoughtfulness put in each one makes them even more beautiful.

  6. A postpartum bath. This was something I had never heard of but something I enjoyed more than anything. I was not expecting all the crazy emotions and feelings that come right after giving birth. That’s the good thing about friends that have children and already know what you need!! Mandy and Ashely with Made on Acorn Hill have 11 kids between the two of them. So they knew just what this new mama needed. They make some amazing natural products but I think the postpartum bath will always now be my favorite!!!

  7. Lastly is a lifetime hunting license. This was by far the men’s favorite. Being from the south and from a family of avid hunters, this was an amazing gift!!!

We were blessed with four amazing baby showers and are actually still getting gifts weekly. The outpouring of love we have been showered with has been nothing short of amazing!!! Like I said earlier—— you can absolutely never go wrong by buying a mom to be diapers and wipes, but I also wanted to share a few out of the box gifts we received that we absolutely loved.
