Mumbo Jumbo from Yours Truly

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

This is a post filled with a jumbo heap of mess so I apologize in advance...
1. Readers/Friends who are into all things beauty: Recently, I have noticed my hair is really dry--assuming due to the change in weather which is strange becaused it used to be oily, but now I am on the hunt for a DEEP conditioning treatment to help my locks get repaired and stay healthy... any go-to products that you've tried that are musts? I'm seeking your guidance on this one please!
2. Taylor's Top 2 Tuesday today is "Your Favorite Jobs"... well, considering I have only had a total of 5 jobs my entire life, that makes this an easy one and they're both positions I held while in college...
a) Sales Lead at the Limited--granted, I made zero dollars because I spent way more than my paycheck, but I loved playing dress up with clients and customers and working retail can really be fun, especially when you had a lively bunch like we did
b) Manager at Hot Spot Tanning--you all know my former love of tanning, and this was no exception... I got this job so that I could tan for free. It was right across from our sorority dorms so it was mostly college gals, but don't worry, we had our fair share of creepy visitors, too--gives me the willies just thinking about some of the issues we had to deal with, not to mention we practically worked for free--is that sad this was my fav job?? =)
3. Dear Verizon, please hurry up and get the iPhone. My BlackBerry needs to be retired as its seen its finer days and I am getting anxious over here to download all these unnecessary apps everyone keeps telling me about!
4. The Christmas decor is officially out for display in the house...yes, I know, I am a tad bit early, but if you saw my calendar for these next 2 weeks you'd know why. Plus, what better reason than to enjoy it for more than a month, right? Dont mind if I do. I thoroughly enjoyed my Monday night, listening to Sounds of the Season via Comcast Music and decorating the first of our trees--pictures to come soon!
5. This week, I get to live out my dream of being a baker/chef by cooking for so many events... Thanksgiving at work Friday, Candice's bday treats for Friday night, breakfast for guests on Saturday, and tailgating/football food Saturday night. Oh full recipes to follow I promise!

Until we meet again... I'm off working away in the dreary and cold rain--yucko!

  2. I have naturally curly hair and tend to us a flat iron/curling iron a lot so I have to use deep conditioner! My favorite is Aveda Damage Remedy- Intensive Restructuring Treatment. It is AMAZING! My hair is always super soft. I love it so much except for the price, its $26. If you're looking for a cheaper but still good product, I've heard that the Frizz-Ease products are good but haven't tried them myself.

  3. Try this stuff for your hair: Dove Damage Therapy Daily Treatment Conditioner. Works wonders!

  4. your hair might be drying out because you wash it too much. i started washing mine every other day when it got long. more hair so not enough oil to distribute. i know this is easier said than done especially when you work out most days. but even skipping a washing here or there might help. also, using a powder shampoo and a spray conditioner might help instead of wetting your locks everyday.

  8. My hair is the exact same way! It used to be VERY oily, but now (especially in the winter) it gets so dry that it almost breaks!

  9. I think its great you have your xmas decor out a little early! Why not celebrate the season :) I have dry hair too (actually dry everything - skin, scalp, face) and I use Bumble & Bumble. It keeps my hair nice. I also don't wash it every day - give it days off in between washes if you can (it's hard).

  14. moroccan oil. seriously. i also read fergie takes out her extensions and dips her ends in the stuff and puts it in a bun and sleeps like that, then washes it out in the AM. i use a little after i hop out of the shower, before i blow dry. i could tell a difference in my hair the first day i used it.
