Hair Care with Essential Oils // Hair Extension Safe

FullSizeRender IMG_2841 First off, let me give you a little bit of my hair history. I got my dads hair (grrrr) my whole life it was thin and straggly. My pony tails were like ¼ inch thick, if I was lucky. Every hair dresser that I had always made a comment about how thin my hair was. So when I started using the doTERRA Salon Essentials line, you can image how surprised I was when my hair girl said my hair was feeling really healthy and then, about 6 months later even said my hair was feeling so THICK….THICK! What?! I had never heard that in my life. Salon Essentials had completely changed my hair.

Now, I don’t only attribute this change in my hair to their Salon Essential line, I also attribute it to religiously taking the vitamins in doTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Pack every single day. We will talk more about the Lifelong Vitality Pack later (I need like a whole separate post for how amazing those vitamins are). This was my personal experience with the Salon Essentials line but I know personal experiences can only go so far…so this post is to help you see more of the science behind their products so you can understand WHY my hair improved so much. Their Salon Essentials Hair Care line has four steps to it; Protecting Shampoo, Smoothing Conditioner, Root to Tip Serum, and Healthy Hold Glaze. You can use them all together, which is what I do, or you can use them separately. No matter how you use them, these products promote healthy, soft, and shiny hair. Today I am just going to focus on the shampoo and conditioner. Screen Shot 2015-07-26 at 10.27.46 PM Side note: I wear clip in Laced Hair extensions (the best extensions ever) and I wash my extension with these products. They are hair extensions safe and keep my extensions in perfect condition. That’s what I love most about this hair care system, it is ALL NATURAL, 100% good for your hair. If you have hair extensions, this is so the way to go. I have yet to find a product that works as good as this one.

Summer is HOT// My Tips On Staying Cool

IMG_0720-1 This Summer has been the hottest Summer in Utah for a very long time. Now, I am a huge fan of Summer time (who in the right mind isn’t??) but when it’s this hot this early into Summer, it definitely make things interesting. I am going to share with you how I stay cool without sacrificing style or modesty. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and we believe in being modest, especially after we have been endowed in the Temple (even though that is what I believe, it totally doesn’t mean I don’t love you all the same if you don’t feel the same way… I promise!). Thus, I have always had a hard time when Summer came because its so HOT and when it’s so hot the only way to cool down is to wear less…right? WRONG! Here are my tips on how: Skirts, dresses, and sandals, oh my! 1. Dresses- I LIVE in skirts and dresses in the summer time. Lately I have been obsessed with Baseball tee dresses. There are so many amazing midi dresses out there that are so comfy and so BREEZY. Yes breezy, I feel way cooler in a midi dress than I even do in capris. Sometimes I have the problem with dresses not being quite long enough, when I run into this problem I always size up. More baggy and less fitted is definitely in right now so its a win win 🙂 Here are links to some of my favorite summer breezy dresses: Moxie and Threads (remember to enter in “whitjmoxie” for 20% off your purchase) Mindy Mae’s Market, and Sonnet JamesIMG_0637 IMG_0824 IMG_0634 2. Sandals… let yo feet breathe!! Lets also talk about how amazing sandals look with skirts and dresses. Here are some of my very favorite sandals right now: PS I Adore You, Target (they have a promo going on right now, save 20% on shoes and accessories), and Piper and Scoot 3. Skirts with graphic tees, lets be honest here… graphic tees are all the rage and I am SO HAPPY ABOUT IT! Just like dresses, skirts give you that easy breezy feeling in this summer heat. It is the perfect way to stay nice and cool. Graphic tees are so cute and are completely effortless, you honestly can’t go wrong with a graphic tee. Add a graphic tee to any skirt and I promise that you will be rocking it. Here are some of my favorite summer skirts: Modest Pop, and Laurel Sherbert (you know getting two for one is like my favorite thing…look at these skirts and you will totally know why I love them. Enter in code “SUMMER15” for 20% off your purchase). Now for some of my favorite graphic tees: Arsenic and Lace, and Sweet T’s Design. IMG_0591IMG_0812 4. McDonalds Diet coke….nuff said- keep yourself hydrated! I know this isn’t fashion related but I think my veins bleed diet coke so I had to add it in here :). I would LOVE to hear how you stay cool in the Summer, comment below and let me know! Thanks for reading! FullSizeRender

Never Enough Floral

IMG_0777

There really is no such thing as enough floral in my book. I really wouldn’t mind wearing it every day… and I just about do. It’s one of those things that makes my day brighter… like chocolate. Thus, my conclusion, wearing floral is very similar to eating chocolate 🙂

I got this beautiful floral tee from my fave La Belle Vie. I love this tee because you can dress it up or dress it down and its floral… need I say more? They only have a few left in stock so RUN on over and grab yourself one of these beauties! Remember you can get 25% off by entering in “whitjoxo” until July 15th. 

My pants are from Mindy Mae’s Market…yes this is like the tenth time I have styled them, they are absolute perfection. Keep an eye out on their Instagram for great deals and flash sales going on all the time! Sweater- Taipan Trading, Shoes-Target

Laid Back Summer Lovin!

IMG_0732 So my cute hubs is like amazing at long boarding. On one our first dates we were just chillin in Provo canyon and he pulled out his longboard, he knew that I had never long boarded before so he thought it would be fun to teach me how, I thought it would be fun too! I mean, I consider myself an athletic person. So I channeled my inner scooter riding days (you know the Razors? I had a red one, I was such a cool cat) and gave it my best shot. FAIL! Ultimate fail you guys, like the kind of fail that you really don’t want anyone to see on a first date, let alone the man you are head over heels for. Thank goodness he decided to look past my long boarding fails and still put a ring on it. So we pulled the longboard out again for this fun laid back photo shoot and it was a whole new kind of fail. At least I have this gorgeous baseball tee from White Plum on while I am failing, right? I LOVE this shirt, it is so versatile, it can be dressed up or dressed down Stay tuned, next week I will show you how you can style this tee to look perfectly, classically, fancy. I love White Plum’s shop they always have amazing deals on Jane.com which if you decide go look on Jane.com, I’m going to apologize now for the extreme amount of addiction that you will soon experience. I think I have gotten a dozen or so people hooked on it. Aside from Jane deals they also give you a 30% coupon in the mail with everything you order! Which gives you the perfect excuse to order something else, but good luck picking just one thing to order on their site :). Happy shopping and thanks for reading!
