My 3 Fave Kids Hair and Skin Products

I always say it's a good thing I only have one girl because I am really not good at doing my kids' hair.  They have all hated getting their hair washed and brushed and it is such a pain!  I really dread doing it.  I wish I would have found these years ago, so if you struggle like I do, don't wait to try some of these!!

1.  SoCozy Professional Hair Collection for Kids

I have been using the Styling Cream and Styling Gel for Macsen and the Detangling Spray for Allie and I love them all!  They all smell really good and the Styling Gel and Cream aren't really sticky and gross like other ones I've tried.

The Detangler isn't oily and thick like others that I have tried and it works really well on Allie's hair!  Saves her so much pain and me so much time!  I am also VERY happy to have the Lice Prevention Spray since we had 2 outbreaks this year at Allie's school.  Gives me peace of mind!

2. Tangle Tamer Max

I bought this at Sally's Beauty Supply on a whim and I am SO glad I did!  Allie has the most sensitive head ever so this has helped a lot.  I am not sure how it compares to other brands because I haven't tried any others, but I love it.  I think it is a bit cheaper at Sally's, but you can also find it here

3. Cetaphil Baby Line

I have tried a few baby lotions and washes and this is definitely one of my favorites.  I love that the lotion is very light and doesn't smell strong like other brands I've tried.  It isn't as oily or thick as the others too.  I usually put it on Jensen and myself at the same time- makes life easier for me!  I also really like the washes they have- especially the wash that doubles as shampoo.  Like I said, anything that saves me time and hassle and kills two birds with one stone is my best friend these days!

Duelette for Moms

With Mother's Day fast approaching many of you are looking for some gift ideas.  I was recently sent the Duelette from Chilly Jilly and had to share.  These are bracelets that double as hair-bands- perfect for moms on the go!  These high-quality bands adjust to any size so they won't ever be too loose or too tight for your hair or wrist.  They come in white or black and options of 14k gold, silver, or both colors of beads.  I have been wearing mine in gold and white all the time!  

Check out the other combos and buy the girl in your life one at their website Chilly Jilly

Please Get Here Spring!

Anyone else in a funk lately?  I just really don't like the months of Jan-March.  They are boring and cold and make me stir-crazy.  Lately I have been daydreaming of my dream house- not that I am not grateful and don't love our house now- more of just a thing to look forward to creating.  I think I just always need to be doing something creative.  Maybe when I am doing more photo shoots soon I will settle down a little bit haha!  Anyway, I just had to share some of my favorite dream kitchen/living areas I've found on Pinterest these days.  Because we all know the kitchen/living area is the most important space in the house amiright?

As you can see, I am a big fan of the white kitchens with a mix of rustic, modern and traditional structure and accents.  A big, white farmhouse sink is on my wishlist and of course marble/ marble look-alike counter-tops.  All image credits can be found on my Pinterest board.
