A Productive Sunday Afternoon

Spring and Fall are two of my favorite seasons because the weather is just right. This spring in Georgia has been really rainy so far, which is horrible when you are trying to have a good hair day. Luckily this weekend the sun was shining and I was able to get outside and soak up the rays while getting some work done. I headed to a local cafe to sit outside and journal while enjoying a nice cup of tea.


The great thing about sunny weather is you can always look forward to having a #BadAssHairDay. There’s no need to pull your hair back into a ponytail when the sun is shining just right. Thanks to the folks at OGX Beauty, I’m now always going to have a good hair day. For their new #BadAssHairDay campaign, I’ve joined a few select bloggers to show you how to have a productive day and make everyday a #BadAssHairDay.
In order to have a productive Sunday, I have to start my day at church, followed by a yoga session, then a trip to the farmers market or whole foods to shop for the week, and then it usually ends with a dinner with my family or at home alone. I tend to overload my weekends, so sometimes it’s nice to just sit outside and mediate while the wind blows in your hair.


OGX Beauty currently has a #HairorDare challenge on Instagram, and you can be involved too! Follow @OGX_Beauty and the #BadAssHairDay and #HairorDare hashtags. Share photos of your Bad Ass Hair Days or do one of the #HairorDare challenges for a chance to win prizes.

My Style // The Leather Dress


I’m back with another installment of my style series! It’s been a long week but I’m looking forward to winding down this weekend and hitting the town for some fun. This leather dress from BB Dakota is perfect for a girls night out on the town! The great thing about this dress is that it’s figure flattering and can be worn throughout the spring. It also has a little sex appeal but it’s classy as well.

My Style // Welcoming Spring

The start of spring is just a few weeks away and we got a taste of the weather in Atlanta this week. It was sigh of relief from the weeks of snow and freezing rain. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good snow day but being able to enjoy the warm weather these past few days was great. So I’m ready and welcoming spring with open arms.
