After I had Piper, my hair went through a major self destruction discovery period. Postpartum was rough on my locks. I lost so much hair, and it started to become dull and brittle. I quickly realized my drugstore shampoo was not going to cut it anymore, and it was time to invest in some quality hair products. I switched to a couple higher end shampoos, conditioners, masks, and serums that worked wonders on my hair.

The Alterna Caviar Collection has been on my list of products to try for quite some time. I was so excited to get to spend an afternoon at Wilson’s on Washington to finally try them out. I started off talking to my hair dresser, Taylor, about my hair so she could decide on the best products to use. Since I use a fair amount of heat styling on my hair, and have had a lot of trouble with breakage in the past, she decided on the Caviar Repair Instant Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner. It has strand building proteins that help repair damaged hair, so not only is it preventative, it’s restorative as well! We paired it with the Caviar Style Luxe Shape which might just be my new favorite styling product. It is so smooth and lightweight, that it doesn’t even feel like anything is in your hair. You can put it in wet hair before styling to help protect from heat and smooth your hair, or you can let your hair air dry and it’ll help tame fly aways. My hair isn’t naturally curly, nor naturally straight (I call it ‘naturally confused’), so this product really helps manage any frizziness. Not to mention it leaves my hair feeling like silk.

There are so many wonderful Alterna Haircare products, depending on exactly what your needs are. I’m also hoping to try the Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner in the future as well.

Taylor was so helpful in teaching me not only about the products she was using, but about the type of hair I have as well. My experience at Wilson’s on Washington was tailored perfectly to my hair needs and was such a wonderful experience. I left feeling pampered, and completely refreshed. The salon is absolutely beautiful, and everyone is so friendly. I highly recommend it if you are in need of a hair cut, color, or blow out. I already can’t wait to be back!

Greenville has really upped the anty on their coffee situation. It’s about time I updated my “6 Must Visit Coffee Shops in Greenville” post. It’s more like…12 now!! I am recently loving Caviar and Bananas. The decor is on point, the cappucinos are delicious, and their food is out of this world. It’s the perfect little spot to grab a cup of coffee and get some work done, or meet girlfriends for salads or sandwiches, and a glass of wine in the evening. If you live in Greenville, you must check them out! And if you’re local to Charleston, they have a location there as well.

Pregnancy turned me into a smoothie lover, so I recently tried Southern Pressed Juicery. While they are known for their organic, raw, cold-pressed juices (which I’m sure are delicious!), I tried their dragon bowl. I was initially drawn in by its vibrant pink color and was delighted to find that it’s flavor is just as vibrant! It was super filling, and I felt refreshed and like I was glowing after eating it – kind of like I had just run a 5k. Which is probably just me trying to make myself feel better for my lack of 5k’s lately ;). If you’re from the Greenville area (or visiting!) be sure to try them out.

Vann and Liv is the cutest little children’s boutique there ever was. Not only are the clothes and accessories unbelievably adorable, but I cannot get over the beautiful decor. Major design crush over here. From the little dots on the ground to the hanging ice cream cones, it’s just so precious I had to share it on the blog.

We have been borrowing the rocking chair in Piper’s nursery from a friend, and are about to invest in our own. I am torn between dark gray or bright blue. After visiting Vann and Liv, I might have to go with the bright blue! We’ll see if I can convince Scofield ;)
