Unruly Curls


This product is a life changer from the forehead up.

Moroccan Oil has transformed my frizzy, unruly curls into soft, shiny spirals. I'd recommend it for those without curly hair too though. It's does a number on the wallet, but it lasts a long time. (I'm still using the large bottle I bought last summer and I've got a least a few more months to go.)
I've heard that the shampoo is fabulous also. Magazines rave about this brand, and now I suppose I am too.

Cuteness Cure-all

If you're having a bad day, watch this. It's absolutely the cutest baby clip. Enjoy!

tea time

This is the most delicious tea.

Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice 

I am embarrassed to say that a dear friend (and self proclaimed "tea purist") made this same claim months ago and I ignored it on the grounds that I do not usually enjoy cinnamon flavored things. Who wants to chew hot & spicy gum for example? I mean, really?

Call it spring fever perhaps, but I rebelled against my inner instinct and went for something bold, something new and
- be it a bit dramatic-
it has changed my life.  Well, my mornings anyway.

It's not 'hot' spice wise (despite the name) and it has a surprisingly rich, sweet flavor instead. No sweetener needed. SO delicious.
