My Experience with Customized Haircare


When it comes to haircare, does this scenario ring a bell for you?  You find a shampoo and conditioner that you love and three months later it doesn’t work for you anymore.  Like out of nowhere it just stops performing and you find yourself searching for a new holy grail.  I have a theory a lot of this has to do with the temperature and humidity with where you live.  In other words, with me living in Michigan and getting all 4 distinct seasons, I truly notice I need my haircare to perform differently in the winter than in the summer.  So I find myself changing up the products regularly.

What if you could tweak an exact formula for your shampoo and conditioner based on all your hair needs?  I was recently invited to test out this type of customized haircare from a new company called Formulate.Co.  Their products are free of sulfates, parabens, dyes/preservatives and are also cruelty free.   I was thoroughly impressed with the level of detailed information that was requested of me when taking their hair quiz, I mean they even asked for my zip code!!  I was also really happy to see they offered a fragrance selection and you could customize how strongly perfumed your products would be.  Have dandruff issues? They take care of it.  Get greasy 6 hrs after shampooing? No problem.  Live in the dryest of deserts? They will make sure you get what you need.


If this sounds to good to be true, trust me I was thinking the exact same thing!  Where has this kind of customization been my life?  And can you talk to the skincare folks cause man would this be helpful in that arena too!  What I have enjoyed the most with these products is how much my styling time has decreased and I feel like I will be saving loads of money on styling products/leave in conditioners that I won’t really be needing anymore!

So in real life these products are just the gamechangers I thought they would be.  When I go to place my re-order, they will know my zipcode and the expected weather related info they need to customize my shampoo and conditioner for that specific season I will be using that order.  Want to try your very own Formulation of customized haircare from Formulate.Co?  Enter my giveaway here:

Graphic Halloween Tees and Ghoulish Accessories

Happy October friends!  Gosh this year has just flown by it seems.  Every Halloween I’m tempted to buy our family the whole matching costume ensembles but the older my kids get the more it’s just not happening.  I do like to have a little something on hand to feel in the Halloween spirit without being completely decked out in a full costume.  If ya feel me on this, check out some of these ideas…I’m all about the fun graphic tees and Halloween inspired baubles this year!

This Basic Witch shirt is an Amazon find, I sized up for a roomier feel.  You can find it linked here:

This skull sweatshirt has been restocked, I’m sure it will sell out again.  It’s a great price point, make sure to size up since it’s a Juniors fit!  I have it ordered and I’m just waiting for it to hit my doorstep!

This is another good longsleeve option, and you can’t go wrong with a little sequin sparkle!  Another juniors fit, so size up:

Another cute sparkly option:

Whether you want to rock the skeleton look as your costume or as your jammies, this two piece option is affordable and super cute!

I also love these gothic skull leggings, these are a faboolous (see what I did there?) price point!

Fall Makeup Looks

Hi all! Another rolling blog post here…as I do my new fall makeup looks I will post them all here for you with links to the products used. As always if you have questions just shoot me an email or comment on this post!

Eyeshadow palette (scroll thru to find Peach Punch version):





Brow pencil:

Spider earrings:

I’ve mentioned my love for the Stila All Day liquid lips a few times in my instastories. My favorite shade for fall is Baci a plum based nude! Get them now for $11 linked here!

The look above was done using all drugstore products! I’m a huge fan of this Rimmel palette for fall, I was happy with the color pigment and how easily they applied! If you are playing with new or trendier colors I always suggest trying an inexpensive option first so you can see if the colors suit you before investing in more expensive options!

Top Trends for Fall

Trendy is not a word I would use to describe my entire wardrobe. I’ve mentioned this before but I’m more of a classic style kind of girl.  However, I do try to pay attention to what is up and coming every season.  Generally speaking, I’ll purchase a few trendier pieces that I can mix with my capsule basics.  I’ve noticed a few trends for fall and wanted to share some finds with you that can fit into every budget.  Some of my favorite retailers to find affordable trends are Target, Zara, ASOS, and H&M.  I hope you enjoy shopping my picks!  As always thanks for your continued support of this blog and using my links for your purchases!




It seems the romantic fabric is working it’s way back into fashion.  Velvet adds texture and interest to an outfit and is easy to dress up or dress down.  Below are some affordable ways to bring some velvet into your life.

We’re not talking about nautical stripes here but more varsity/sporty stripes that give your outfit an athletic vibe.  Look for accent stripes on cardigans and sweaters. Track style pants are going to be big for fall.  Pants with side stripes will be seen not just in athleisure and joggers but the trend will also be seen in jeans and workwear.  Check out a few of my favorites below.

Blazers are always big sellers for fall.  It’s a simple way to add structure to an outfit.  This fall, look for blazers with a decidely masculine feel.  Think elbow patches, houndstooth patterns, newsboy caps!

A wide leg pant is a super flattering cut on any shape and I’m happy to see them back!  You can pair these with sweaters, blouses, moto jackets and blazers.  Basic black works for all but you’ll also see these in some patterns as well.

First it was ponchos, then blanket scarves and now for fall the way to be seen in public but feel like you are home on your couch wrapped in a blanket is to wear a cape!  I personally love this trend and think they look classy and timeless. A great layering piece for fall outdoor activities!

JCPenney Fall Dress Picks

OK guys, a little {kinda big} secret I’m sharing here…I L.O.V.E. the dress department at JCPenney.  Yes you might have to weed through a few more “mature/grandma” appropriate styles.  That said, JCP never lets me down when I’m hunting for semiformal {aka wedding guest} and work appropriate dresses.  I went ahead and scoped out the new fall lineup and I’m sharing all my favorites below.  The overall idea with a fall wardrobe is to find a dress that you can layer a cardigan, blazer, denim or leather jacket over for chillier days and nights (bonus: if it’s appropriate to wear leggings underneath and can work it’s way into winter!).  These pictures are just from my try on but I can’t wait to style some of these finds for you.  Right now there is a big online sale going on if you use the code GOSAVE9.  Happy shopping and as always I appreciate you using my links to purchase as it helps me figure out which styles my readers want more of!!

Are You Ready For Some Football?

One of the reasons I love fall so much is the start of football season!  I’ve always loved tailgating and football was a huge part of my college football experience (Go Blue even though we lost yesterday!)  We still go to as many college games as we can in Ann Arbor every year and so if you are a football fan like me, I thought I would round up some of my tailgate day essentials.  These are items that will make your game day experience a winner!  These pieces are great to have for any outdoor fall event really.  The overall idea is to layer, and wear items that will help you make it through less than ideal weather conditions while still being comfortable.  Continuing with my usual Sunday sharing theme, I’ve included some Save vs. Splurge items.


Here’s a selection of cute game day tees if you prefer a “team neutral” look:

For tailgate day shoes, I highly recommend either sneakers or a form of rain boots.  The last thing you want if there is a chance of rain is risking having wet feet all day so my usual go to would be to wear the wellies! I’ve linked a few good options below, I prefer the short length rain boots as I feel like the longer ones are a bit clunky if you have to walk far on game day.

Link for Hunters *on sale but still a bit of a splurge:

Can’t forget the socks!! Highly recommend a pair of smartwool socks to keep your feet warm and dry!! Find them linked here:


A great fleece pullover is a nice option to layer over your team tshirt, you can tie it around your waist if it’s a warmer day and you end up not needing it.


Link to Patagonia, splurge option:

A puffer vest is another great piece to have for layering when its colder, layer it over your team sweatshirt or fleece to stay extra warm, I generally size up one in all my vests to all for room for sweaters/sweatshirts underneath!

My picks for denim are always going to be either a reinforced/ minimally distressed pair or a boyfriend type jean.  I prefer a high waist in case of large quantities of chips and salsa consumption 😉

You can’t forget the “longjohns” (I seriously hate that word!) for the really cold weather days.  These lightweight leggings can be worn under jeans to keep your legs extra warm!


Link to thermal pants, save option:

Important tip: You’ll want to make sure and carefully review the handbag policy for whatever stadium you’ll be visiting.  Even if I’m not bringing a bag into the stadium I like to have a crossbody bag on me for tailgating festivities usually.  See some great options below, the clear bag is intended for use in NFL stadiums.

Thanks for taking a peak at my picks!! I hope this round up was helpful and you pick up some goodies for your next tailgate!  Happy (almost) Fall!!




Sephora Insider Sale Picks

It’s no secret Sephora is the mecca of all things beauty products!  This time of year, their reward program Insiders are treated to a no holds bar sale on everything Sephora stocks.  It’s a great time of year to try a few new products and stock up on some holy grails.  It’s free to join their rewards program and is simple to sign up online. On August 30th, the sale will open to VIB members – use code “YESVIB” to get 15% off your total purchase. Beauty Insiders get 10% off with code “YESINSIDER.” Below is a quick rundown on what you’ll find in my cart during the sale.  Sephora has an excellent return policy, so if there is something you aren’t sure about it’s totally okay to try it and take it back if it doesn’t work for you.


The 3 products shown below are staples in my regular makeup routine and have been for several years.  I recommend this CC Cream to anyone as it is a buildable coverage and contains your SPF.  It has never failed me and has a cult following!  Speaking of cult following, the Stila liquid eyeliner applies the best of any liquid liner I’ve used.  It also doesn’t smudge off or run on you as it wears.  Another Stila fave of mine is the All Day Liquid Lip, highly recommend the shade Baci for fall – it’s a pretty neutral with just a hint of plum to it!

The following products are items I will be trying for the first time.  I’m super excited to try the new Glow formula Setting Powder from Laura Mercier, it is a highly anticipated new product to the already well loved lineup of setting powders from this brand.  Another new product I’m excited to try is the Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow.  I have a few formal events lined up for fall and I think this shadow will be perfect for them!

I’m also trying the Tarteist Pro To Go palette from Tarte.  This palette has a lot of warm colors in it that are great for fall but is more of a travel size option.  I have similar colors but they are all in very expansive palettes that are not the best for travel.  If you haven’t tried the shadows from Tarte before I highly recommend them, they are super pigmented with very little to no fall out.

Two of my holy grail hair products that I added to my cart are the Olaplex No.3 treatment mask and the Living Proof Dry Shampoo.   If you buy nothing else from this sale, try the Olaplex mask!! You’ll thank me later, seriously summer can really do a number on your hair between the sun and chlorine from pools.  This reconstructor mask works wonders after just one use and makes your hair soft and manageable.   I use a variety of drug store shampoos that I do like, but I’ve found this Living Proof version actually WORKS the best.  It is a little pricier than I would like to spend on a dry shampoo which I why I only buy it on sale!

Two of my favorite fragrances are included in this sale.  If you regularly wear perfume you know it does not go on sale very often, so now is a great time to stock up.  My go-to fragrance is Amazing Grace by Philosophy.  I wear it because it’s light and not overpowering, it’s a very clean scent.  I notice that it’s not aggravating to those who are sensitive to perfumes and so it’s a great choice for a work environment.  My other choice especially for fall is Flowerbomb, this scent is a little warmer and heavier so I don’t wear it to work but it is a great date night fragrance!

Amazing Grace:



Two products I’m excited to try for the first time are the Watermelon Mask from Glow Recipe and the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. I’ve heard great things about the overnight Watermelon mask, it is supposed to really help with hydrating your skin which is something I need at the moment.  The lip mask I think will be perfect for preventing the dreaded chapped lips that come with Michigan winters!

And that concludes my round up!! If you guys end up taking advantage of the sale I’d love to hear what you tried!  This sale will run until September 4th and products do sell out so don’t wait if you have your eye on something. Happy Shopping!
