M’s Weekly Love List

weeklylovelist_1010

This week has zoomed right by and I’m kind of freaking out that we’re already a third of the way through October. In all honesty, I feel as if I’ve put my personal to-do list on hold this week and dove deep into the work to-do list, and now I’m wishing I had balanced things out a bit more. But I’m hoping a relaxing weekend at home will do the trick. Shawn is leaving on Sunday for South Carolina to visit family and for his annual hunting trip. As much as I’ll miss him tinkering around the house for a few days, I have to admit, it’s much easier to get things done around the house (read: crazy cleaning lady here, I vacuum around him) when it’s man-free. Right? Regardless, I will miss that funny, distracting, handsome and laugh-inducing fiancé of mine. Happy weekending everyone!

I stumbled across the Artful Desperado’s gorgeous recipes this week for the first time. How have I not been here before? Food heaven!

Beyond Work/Life Balance: Living the Life You Want

(I owe credit to Shawn for finding this link) We just bought a Go Pro last week, but before we did, we came across this beautiful and awe-inspiring video in our research. 

The game-changer shampoo & conditioner I’m loving.

Loving this idea for our wedding cake, simple and sweet.

Healthy Hair with Living Proof

livingproof1

I’m a firm believer that what we put into our bodies and our nutritional practices weighs heavily on the well being of our hair and skin, not to mention our entire body and our energy levels. But what we put ON our hair and skin matters in a big way too. If I’m being completely honest? I’ve always been one to change up my shampoo and conditioner every few months because I’m always looking for something better, something wow. And I can easily say after just a few short weeks of using this product, that Living Proof is exactly that and so much more.

I first heard of Living Proof from the ladies at The Luxe Bar, the awesome style bar that fancied me up for our engagement photos in August. They love Living Proof so much that it’s the only product they carry. Not only did I love the smell of it during the shampooing, but my hair felt so smooth after the blow dry—with no styling products used. Amazing! Gina, the owner went on to tell me that LP was born in Cambridge, MA (hey neighbor!) and was developed using technology and new molecules by biotech scientists at MIT. It’s sulfate-free, silicone free and oil-free too. And one more little push that made me have to try it? The lovely Jennifer Aniston with her amazing head of hair, is a co-owner.

Ive been using the Full Shampoo and Conditioner for just a short few weeks, but I’ve truly felt a difference in my hair. A bigger difference than just switching up brands—it literally feels and looks healthier. As most women probably do, my hair is something that I worry over constantly. I have lots of it, but it’s much thinner and finer than it was ten years ago. So to have a product that I finally feel confident using (that won’t strip away all the good things it does have), makes me seriously happy. And I’m sharing it for that reason—because I stand 100% behind it. So if you’re a ‘change your shampoo and conditioner every few months kind of woman’? Give Living Proof a try, I have a feeling you’ll love it.

Leopard Love

leopardlove1

There are a few iconic patterns that every girl should have in her closet. And leopard? It’s definitely in the top five. Personally, I love it year round, but tend to bust it out during autumn more than usual. It all started with a button up I bought about four years ago from New York & Co., and ever since, I crave leopard, I pin it like crazy and slowly keep adding pieces to my wardrobe. Here are a few lovely leopard looks that nail it and some of my picks below! Happy leoparding! xo
