Everyday Products

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about this concept I’ve come to cherish: celebrating the everyday. I want this online home of mine to be a place to find inspiration and real life ways to do just that. And by creating and curating content to that effect, I myself am inspired to look at my life in a different way…coming from a place of gratitude.

I’ve slowed down. To stop and look and see.

And share.

I have many little things, including products and brands that have become a part of my everyday routine. So I took a little walk around my home thinking about these things and taking pictures to really see my everyday. Today I’m sharing a couple of my favorites products that I use almost daily.

Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo: $2.79 Spornette Little Wonder Teasing Brush: $4.70.

If I’m not having a shower, I am using my dry shampoo. And the cheap Suave brand is my go-to. I love how it smells, kind of fruity, and it does the trick for me getting rid of the grease, especially around my hairline. And then I use my teasing brush to get volume on the crown of my head and make my bangs do what I want them to do when I’m not blow drying them. And I’ll admit it, I wanted this brush because it had pink bristles! But it works really good and I feel like I have more control than I would just using a comb.

I’m not really one to spend big money on beauty products. My cousin (and hair stylist) Hannah just cringes when I tell her I use Suave shampoo and conditioner too! Gasp! But I like cheap, and it works good for me. So my little “Everyday Products” features won’t really be expensive products or anything. Just the little things I go back to again and again and love to use. Perhaps you’ll find something new to try with these posts. Or maybe they’ll inspire you to stop and look at what you use, and think about why you like it and how it makes your life better, or smell better, or feel better.

Here’s to loving the lives we have and celebrating each day!

What is a hair product you buy again and again?
Have you tried dry shampoo yet?

  1. Dry shampoo is my friend!! My hair is so fine, and it gets oily SO fast! Lately, I have been trying to break my years-long habit of washing it every single day. I still wash it *almost* every day, but when I do skip a day, I use dry shampoo. It's a lifesaver!! My favorite brand so far is TIGI Bed Head Rockaholic Dirty Secret. It's pricey though, so I usually only buy it when it's on sale & I have an Ulta coupon. Right now, I have some odd brand I got on clearance at CVS...I can't think of it at the time. It does OK, but I'd like to get some more of my TIGI. I do need a teasing brush for those rare occasions where I actually *fix* my hair. I'll have to look into the one you have! Thanks for sharing!

    1. I used to wash my hair everyday too. But I've managed to break the habit. Its harder in the summer for sure. So glad I have my dry shampoo for those days. And I hope you have luck finding that teasing brush. Its pretty killer! :)

    1. Hehe! It is true that professional products last longer because they are a higher concentration of higher quality, but with my budget right now, its just not gonna happen. Suave it is! ;)

    1. The smell is my favorite part!! I've heard that other brands smell pretty nasty and toxic, but I just love the fruity smell of the Suave. :)
