My kids are home from school today due to the holiday, but I’ve still been up and working since 6am. The difference is that today I didn’t have to take a two-hour break to shower, get dressed, make breakfast, pack lunches, and get them to their bus stop on time. I may not look presentable yet today, but I’ve been focused and making that $$$. Oh, and there’s been coffee. Always lots of coffee. 😂 #dirtyhairdontcare#amediting#coffee#freelancerlife#workathomemom
This week I started a new workout program. It’s a step cardio program. Let me tell you this is NOT your Jane Fonda, 1980’s type workout. It is tough!! . This week was challenging. The workouts are only 20mins long but when I’m done it feels like it’s been and hour plus. I’m sweating like I just came in from a rain storm and completely breathless. It’s been awesome! . I soooo freekin excited to see where the next few weeks is going to take me physically as well as mentally! I am 100% result driven and after 6 workouts I can feel my body changing.🤗 . If you wanna give this program a try I can totally hook you up. Click the link in my bio and let’s transform our lives together!!👊🏻💪🏻😘
Here’s a quick tutorial on how I achieve textured waves for all of my beach babes out there ☀️ . This style can be achieved on short or long hair. Clean or dirty. I love my @verbproducts dry shampoo because I can skip the blowout & still have clean looking hair with lots of volume! . I’m also using verb’s ghost oil to keep my ends healthy & hydrated during these frigid winter months. . I’m curling with a 1” wand & curling in a different direction with every section I pick up. I find that this gives me a more textured, messy look. If you’re looking for something a little more polished, curl each section going away from your face! . Lastly I finish off the style with quick bursts of @kenraprofessional volume spray! This helps piece out those curls with enough hold to keep my style all day without leaving my hair crunchy or sticky! .

You know those days where you just feel so good in your own skin?! • It’s crazy that I’m so aware of these days more than ever before. I focus so much more on these days because there are so many days in between where I will criticize every little thing and just have so much negative self-talk going through my brain. • It took me a long time to realize that no matter what size I am or what age I am that I’ll always have days that I feel “less than.” • It also took me a long time to realize that EVERYONE goes through this. Even the people we perceive as “perfect” have days where they feel like they are less than everyone else. • This is exactly why I believe it’s so important to really emphasize the days that you’re feeling awesome and focus on that feeling because it’s what will keep you grounded when you’re in the depths of self-doubt. • So the next time you’re “feeling yourself,” embrace it, take that selfie, dance around your kitchen, and tell yourself how bad ass you really are... never apologize for feeling amazing 👊🏻 • • • • • • • #hoopearrings#petiteheatpalette#urbandecayheat#hairfordays#dirtyhairdontcare#mtlmoments#familyof5#momof3#selflovery#imperfections#embraceyourself#innerbadass#confidenceissexy#fableticsootd
DIRTY HAIR 🤷🏻♀️ . Thanks to @plantsandbalance and @natmedlife for pushing me to NOT wash my hair everyday...I finally decided to try it to see what would happen. 🤔 . Here are my takeaways: ▪️My skin definitely broke out the first week of not washing my hair, which I tried to balance by being vigilant about my skin care routine & eating cleaner ▪️Not washing my hair encouraged me to do something different with my hair everyday ▪️My max number days without washing right now is 2-3, and that’s with working out . Overall, I’m gonna keep this habit going because when I do wash my hair it feels so 👏🏼 much 👏🏼 healthier 👏🏼
***FUN FACT FRIDAY*** On average women spend 1 hour & 53 minutes blow drying & styling their hair a week! By the age 65, they will have spent 7 months of their lives on their hair!🤷🏻♀️ I don’t think I fall into this category since I only wash my hair twice a week! What do you think? Is this you? #funfacts#isityou#dirtyhairdontcare#lovemyhairproducts#goodhairdays
#truth Sometimes I don’t wash my hair for dayyyys.....sometimes I let my 12 year old son play on the computer or IPad for way too long so I can get something done....sometimes I eat an entire family size bag of peanut M&M’s by myself.....sometimes I make super delicious healthy meals and sometimes I just snack all day long on whatever I can find. (Or even eat my kids leftovers😬🤷🏼♀️😂) I hate doing dishes. I love doing laundry. I hate watching tv. I love working out. I hate the feeling of being late for things and when I am-I get super anxious. I love making people food....AND I love eating food. 😂🤷🏼♀️🥰😘🙏🏼 Nobody is perfect. Nobody has it all figured out. We’re all here..and then we’re not? So why not spend our time loving and supporting one another through all the funk? “So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.” 🙏🏼♥️🌱🌳 #whynot#momswholift#strongwomen#mama#singlemom#singlemomlife#reality#snack#support#thursdaythoughts#goodvibes#selflove#yoga#momlife#onelife#liveitup#bikinicompetitor#growth#parenting#truthbomb#sweat#dirtyhairdontcare

This brought me back, way back. I can remember a time when I worried about where I was going to live and where my next meal would come from. I wanted a comfortable place to live with air conditioning/heat. I wanted to be able to pay my bills and still afford to eat. I wanted to not have to choose between putting gas in my tank or food in my stomach. I am thankful that my younger self pushed me to make those things something I don’t even THINK about today. The things I wish for today are much different and my old a$$ self won’t let me rest until they are a reality!
Mama REALLY didn’t want to wash the hair this morning...but i put my big girl pants on and did it. #smallvictories - - Introducing the raglan sweatshirt 🥰🥰🥰 It is as amazing as it looks! Dm me to order $34!
Still recovering #hysterectomyrecovery with a slight complication. My hair is so dirty #dirtyhairdontcare. My orchids have been producing more shoots than ever #orchidwhisperer and I believe it’s because I’ve been here since Dec 19th. Inflated sense of importance? Perhaps. #orchidmomma
This is my 7 day old hair! . Heat Used: 3 times Dry Shampoo: 1 very generous application Braided Days: 1 Other Products: heat protectant and hair oil . . This is my hair after 7 Days of not washing it!! Now if I needed to today, I could totally grab out my curling iron and some elastics and make this into such a cute 7 day hair but that’s not the reality of my day off!! Honestly, this is what my hair will look like today! And it doesn’t look like I haven’t washed it in 7 days!! I have so much volume and not a lot of greasy up top due to the dry shampoo I am using and how I am using it!! . If you want all my dirty hair hacks, go to my IGTV and watch my video on Dirty Hair!!
