Salon Row Grand Opening

Salon Row Salon Suites Long Beach
Salon Row is officially open! Tenants actually were able to move in and start taking clients October 1st! In case you missed it, I talked about Salon Row in this post. It’s the reason I’ve been MIA from the blog the last few months (which I plan to change now that the space is done/open!!) Basically, we partnered with friends Louisa Lawless and Ever Chapa to plan/design a salon suites concept. It’s a place where…

Tried and True – Favorite Hair Care Products

5 Products I Love | Hair, Skin, Natural Deodorant
I’m SUCH a creature of habit, and SO loyal to the products I love. I’ve said this before, but as a result it takes a lot for me to add products in to my lineup. Bad for business as a blogger, but I like to think it’s good for my hair/skin ;). I LOVE my current regime for my hair and realized I’ve never fully shared it – so here it is!    Washing Shampoo –…

There’s a Delivery Service for That

Favorite Grocery and Diaper Delivery Services
When we found out we were having twins, I immediately went to work planning. I wanted to be ready, and have systems in place when they came that would make life as easy as possible. Blake helped a lot with this, and we’ve had a few conversations lately where we pat ourselves on the back for the things we’ve done well in this area. One thing that’s been a HUGE help is organizing deliveries of…

Molekule Air Purifier Review (getting rid of Mold!)

I heard about the Molekule Air Purifier from a friend who worked on the production side of a commercial project with the company. After working on the project with them, he was completely sold on Molekule and got one for himself. He also (obviously) told us about it, and I was really intrigued. Our Mold Problem Fast forward a few months, and we discovered we had a massive mold problem caused by our AC unit…

Kopari Coconut Deodorant | Silky Tie Front Navy Dress | Shoes | Clutch That being said, remember that one time I wore a long-sleeve, silky dress to an event in…

5 Products I’ve Added to My Lineup

5 Products I Love | Hair, Skin, Natural Deodorant
I’m trying to be better about posting about my favorite products, so here goes some effort in that direction! These are a few things I’ve recently added to my product lineup. I’ve said this before, but I’m a HUGE skeptic and very resistant to change (not a good thing but I’m working on it!!) so it takes a lot of convincing for me to adopt new products. The products below all made the cut, and…

Making the Switch to a Natural Deodorant | Kopari Coconut Deodorant

Kopari Coconut Deodorant | Palms to Pines
Let me start this post by saying that I’m SUPER sensitive to smells, and VERY picky about my deodorant. I’m always paranoid of smelling weird – like, I have to go into hiding right after getting a spray tan. When I met Blake, he was pretty passionate about not using deodorant with aluminum. For those who are like me back then and don’t know, aluminum blocks your sweat glands, preventing you from sweating which you are…

How I got my Body Back After Twins…for the Most Part ;)

L*Space Yellow Swimsuit | The Shop Laguna | Palms to Pines
Ok guys, you asked and I’m answering. Here’s how I’ve (almost) got my body “back” after having twins. Let me start by saying that I’m NOT an expert. I’m actually notoriously horrible at sticking to anything, have way too many weaknesses, and way too little will power. But I do think I’ve gotten in to my own little groove that’s worked for me, so I don’t mind sharing it with you on here. I also…

The Big Fix

Dr. Scott Harris | Dental Before and After | Impacted Tooth, Receding Gums
So I think everyone has that one thing they’re the most self conscious about, right? For me, it’s always been this one stupid tooth! I literally think about it every time I talk to someone, and it’s the first thing I notice in photos of myself. At work, I would find myself trying not to smile unless my head was turned to cover that tooth! This Freakin’ Tooth… I’ll spare you the long story, but…
