What’s In My ….. hair care/styling drawer?

Hey guys! HAPPY Friday! I don’t know about you guys, but this Friday feels extra special because it’s kicking off the Christmas weekend!! We love Christmas around here…and we are just so excited that it’s here. 🙂

BUT that’s not what this post is about. Today we are doing another edition of “What’s in my….?” We are both curious by nature…and nosy…and well for us, it’s so much fun to get a peak inside someone else’s life which is why we love these kinds of posts! So anyway, today we’re talking about What’s in our hair care/styling drawers.

Ready to see? Cool…let’s dive right in.

Ashley –

I get ready in my bedroom – so all of my makeup and hair stuff is located on and inside my bedroom dresser. I keep all of my products in this little decorative birdcage thing that came from the at Home store in Gulfport. My hot tools and brushes are kept in the top drawer of my dresser.

First, please excuse the hairy state of my brushes…I attempted to clean them off but that proved to be a very labor intensive endeavor that I was not ready for at the moment. SO you get to see alllll the hairs.  Anywaay, I have a blow dryer, flat iron, and small curling iron. I’ve got two sizes of round brushes. The smaller one on the right is used for the shorted hairs on the underside of my head, and I use the larger for the longer hair on the top layer. That regular brush is for brushing my tangled locks.

And these are the products I use on a regular basis. Starting at the far left: hair oil, heat protectant cream, finishing spray for texture and volume, dry shampoo, and then two different volumizing mousses.  I need all the texture and volume help because my hair is so thin and fine.

Rhonda –

Now, let me warn you – the first picture I am about to show you is terrifying and may not be suitable for Type A audiences.

I know.

To be fair, I am in the middle of purging and reorganizing my bathroom and this blog post came in the midst of that, as did Christmas.  I will come back and show that drawer again after Christmas.

Anyway, that drawer in my bathroom holds the styling products that are just used occasionally, and most of my frequently used ones.  I did pull out the frequently used to show you better what they are.

I keep dry shampoo and flat iron heat protectant on the counter.  The blow dry cream and blow dry heat protectant stay in the drawer.

A very deep drawer in my bathroom houses all of this: Jumbo Velcro rollers, regular large velcro rollers,  a spinning dryer brush, hair dryer, curling iron, flat iron, and waver.  I love the person who decided to go for a giant drawer in the bathroom.

How do you store your hair tools and products?

 

Week in Review: Rhonda

I don’t know why, but it was the longest week ever to me.  I stayed busy and had a great time, but Monday through Thursday absolutely DRAGGED.

On Monday, I drove down to pick up the kids from their dad.  On the drive, Brett Young’s Live from NYC show came on The Highway.  It was exactly what I needed for that drive.  I sang, laughed, and cried the entire way.  His stories behind his songs are what really made the emotions connect.  When we got back into town, Claudia and I went on a last-minute hunt for Valentines, which I absolutely do not recommend.  Claudia was so excited to be reunited with her ‘Tuart, which is always nice to witness.

Tuesday was of course Valentine’s Day.  My homeschool social group held a Valentine’s party.  We find that the one thing previously public-educated children miss the most is school parties and events, so we recreate that the best we can. Our holiday party was good, but this Valentine’s party was epic.  I owe it all to the hostess, Trayci.  She did an amazing job hosting in her beautiful 100-year-old home.

When Stuart got home (at a decent hour for once!), we exchanged our simple valentines.  He gave me a beautiful card and I gave him a framed image of the day I started falling in love with him, paired with the morning after we got engaged, both taken at the same table at our brunch spot.  I topped it with part of a song by Ryan Follese that is so “us.”

But I’ve got one thing right
Here in my arms
And for once in someone’s eyes
I can do no harm
Ain’t no laws up this high
I don’t need these lucky stars
I got you
And I won’t think twice
I got one thing right

We ended the day with a delicious meal I made and some TV in bed.

Wednesday was a day to stay home in a comfy sweatshirt and get some housework and meal prep done with lots of coffee….then cocktails.

Late Wednesday night, the kids were horsing around and Quentin busted his chin.  So Thursday morning, having not had enough sleep, he crawled into bed with me while I was having coffee.  Once we got out of the bed, I got so much shit done.  I don’t know what motivated me, but I was just nonstop all day, washing sheets, cleaning our bedroom, and cleaning out kitchen cabinets.

 

I had planned to finish organizing the kitchen on Friday, but the weather was amazing and our kitchen light was out, so we hit up the playground and the grocery store instead.  Back at home, the kids watched some movies and then we of course greeted Stuart on the patio when he got home.

 

If you aren’t new to this blog or my social media accounts, you know my weekends involve lots of mimosas.  This Saturday was no different.  We started the morning with drinks and brunch at home then Claudia and I “helped” Stuart clean his bike. Late afternoon, we went to downtown Dallas for the kids to hit up the splash pad and get a change of scenery.  It paid off, because they had a great time and slept really well that night.

I had every intention to spend Sunday cleaning out my closet and doing some purging, but being lazy just felt right.  I did pull a few items I don’t wear out of the closet and purge some old photos, but I spent most of the day sipping on assorted beverages, snuggling my people, and participating in spontaneous dance parties with Claudia.  It was absolutely perfect.

I hope your week was equal parts productive and relaxing, because isn’t that the best kind?
