Hair care favorites

Do you ever think about doing something and later realize you didn’t ACTUALLY do it? This happens to me all of the type, I think about texting me mom back or I think about how I need to get back to an email and somehow the thought becomes a memory of something I didn’t really do.

If this has never happened to you then…oh come on, it happens to everyone! This is one of those things and with blog posts I’m guilty more often than not of photographing something with the intent to share but then life happens and you forget that you didn’t follow through. Sounds like na organization problem or maybe it’s mom brain, keeping everyone else’s life straight I tend to put my own on the back burner. Which is a great segway to share this hair & skin brand from New Zealand who, I may have forgotten about for a second, but is exactly what I need when I’m thinking of everyone else’s needs. My hair is naturally somewhat curly, loose curls but they’re definitely more than waves, which means my hair is also naturally dry. Sans [ceuticals] lets you fill out a profile that customizes products for you, so if you have dry hair like me or even if you don’t, they suggest products that suite you specifically.
It’s been a few weeks and I love what I use, the tube I even keep next to my bed and run a little dab of it through my hair before braiding it and falling asleep. Also, let us not overlook their lovely packaging, functional product and beautiful packaging is the formula for my affection!

favorites from the week

Yesterday was my 9 year wedding anniversary. Of course I didn’t Instagram any of it, so did it really happen? ;) Actually we spent the day alone without the kids and my husband planned the day with breakfast then paddle boarding and later a movie. We saw The Lobster, which I liked except that there was a man sitting directly in front of us with a laughing problem and he would laugh at every little thing and very loudly. There were a few tragic scenes and the entire theater would be hushed and he would just belly lough so loudly. Other than that it was a really nice day.

/I thought I’d share a few favorite newish things floating around the house this week. The dress I wore last night is a micro pleated metallic dress from Zara.
/I have also been searching for a good make up remover/cleanser for a while and a friend recommended this cleansing water by Korean brand Dr. Jart and so far I love it. Even after I washed my face this removed more dirt/makeup so my skin feels super clean!
/Ikea’s Viktig collection, a collab with Swedish artist Ingegerd Råman, is selling out but I really like these glass bowls. They’re sort of a soup or cereal sized bowl but I’ve been using them for fresh berries with breakfast. Their shape is so nice and the glass is thick and crystal clear, not at all tinted like some glass.
/A couple days ago I also picked up the latest copy of OAK magazine and to be entirely honest I haven’t managed to get through the whole thing yet but from what I’ve seen so far it’s full of great material. You can find the previous issue #4 here.
/Lastly, I’ve started yoga & barre classes and needed a new yoga mat so I ordered this extra long white one, though I’m already second guessing my ability to keep it clean! Also, now I need a good strap for it. I’m thinking I might DIY one from leather…?
