Color from a Salon or Box? You'll Never Know..


Clairol was kind enough to send me a box of their new Professional Liquicolor Soy 4Plex hair color in Light Gold/Neutral Blonde to try. You would know that I had JUST got my hair highlighted at a local salon not even a week earlier (ugh!) so I thought, "hey, why not invite a friend over to treat her to a new, fresh 'do?!" So that's just what I did.

Said friend has a tiny 3-month-old and hasn't had her hair colored in the past year (due to 1) having been pregnant for 9 months and 2) just not having enough time to pamper herself since he's been born) so I figured she would definitely enjoy at least covering what roots were showing from her last color. This hair color is also for deep conditioning gray coverage and comes with a color serum that strengthens hair from within. Once opening the package, this is what it contained:

(I had already poured in the liquid color before I took this picture!)

It came with everything that we needed to get started and was VERY easy to do with simple step-by-step instructions on the back of the box... You basically mix everything up in the plastic bottle that's provided, shake, and start coloring away! We let the color sit on her hair for 45 minutes before washing it with lukewarm water, then with a color-safe shampoo & conditioner and blow drying. She was so happy with the results and said her hair felt extra silky and deeply conditioned after using the product. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone that wants to save money and get a color treatment that looks just as natural as if you hadn't "colored" it at all! Here is a picture of the before and after that I took... I'll let you decide for yourself ;)

(it took all of the dark "root" areas and blended them in with the natural hair color to create a natural, highlight look)

Five On Friday: Fall Feels


I can't believe Fall is here! Summer literally flew by and as much as I miss lounging by the pool with a cold drink in my hand and my favorite bathing suit on.. I'm ready for crisp nights by a bonfire with a cup of hot cider warming me up. There's something about flannel and wool socks that is so... COZY. Today I'm linking up to share some of my favorite things about fall:

1. Fall Drink:

This caramel apple sangria needs to be in my hands right.this.minute!! I can already see it in my near future.. 

2. Fall Dinner:

How caaa-ute are these, right?! My kiddos would absolutely love these for dinner on Halloween night! Simple--yet adorbs!!

3. Fall Decor:

I wasn't born with the "creative eye" for decorating so I take inspiration and tips wherever I can get them.. and this my friends, is an entrance that I would LOVE to come home to everyday! I may have to take a trip to the store this weekend to work on sprucing our porch up..

4. Fall Breakfast:

You guys!! Can you imagine pumpkin, almond milk, pecans, syrup..together in one bowl?! Oh.My.Goodness. Can we have breakfast for dinner tonight? I'm thinking YES, PLEASE. 

5. Fall Wear:

Everything about this look screams fall.. I'm loving the layered look with vest, sweater & button-up.. paired with a pair of skinny jeans? IN. LOVE.

Well, that's a wrap.. I'm off to go grab a pumpkin spice latte (#basic) before we hit up the high school football game.. have a great weekend, pretties!

So Good You'll Slap Your Mama!


Hey friends! Sorry I fell off the face of the earth for a bit... with three kiddos, it's like a circus over here sometimes ;) 

Every Sunday after church we have dinner with the family. I'm usually always in charge of dessert and this past Sunday I made an absolutely amazing one that disappeared within 5 minutes! When I see recipes that look like something we would love, I hold on to them until I have time to try them.. This one is one that I saw on The Country Cook and have wanted to try for awhile now. 

Well, let's just say this one will be on repeat... it was delicious! And talk about quick & easy... this one is perfect for a busy mama...



Your family will love you for it!
