Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and I have the perfect Valentine’s treat for all you mamas out there. I was so excited to get to partner with Organic Tan Face and Body to experience their Valentine’s Day Signature Pedicure, the perfect way to treat yourself this Valentine’s day. Getting a pedicure is one of my favorite ways to pamper myself and relax, and I am all about a little spa day and self love. It’d also be the perfect way to prep for a big date night! And let’s be real, at 32 weeks pretty toes is about the only thing I have going ;).
A couple of months ago I visited Charleston for a girl’s trip with my mom, P, and two sisters. We stopped by Sugar Bake Shop one morning for coffee and pastries, and were completely struck by it’s charm. Of course, every little nook in Charleston is so cute, and I’m obviously dying to go visit again. Click through to see more photos from our morning!
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!
