To balance out the disproportionate amount of bitching and moaning being done on this blog lately, I'm going to try to do a couple of happier, lighter posts to follow up on my gray monday post.
I'm a product junkie, and I love finding new things that work for me. Here are a couple of things I've discovered recently:
* Honey Almond Butter: OMFG, so good. I'm not a honey fan as a stand alone item, but combined with the almond butter it is divine. It even made my whole grain, nutty bread I bought yesterday (sigh) bearable! I can't recall the brand offhand, but I do know I bought it at Wegman's and it was not the "Justin's" brand. I did buy a single serve packet of the Justin's Cashew Butter, but I have yet to try it. I like the idea of being able to do a nut butter on occasion in lieu of an actual handful of nuts. I get bored really easily, so any variation is a plus for me!
* Pantene No Crunch Curls Whip: As a person with naturally curly hair, I have spent my life trying different products to control and maximize the potential of my hair. I've found a few things that do well enough, but my main issue is always with the crunch factor. I DO NOT want crunchy curls! I hadn't bought anything Pantene in years, and had recently been doing more Ulta type hair products for my curls. However, I am a true sucker and saw a new curls mouuse from Pantene and bought it. I love it. It smells so good to me, and it isn't crunchy at all. Seems to be working really well and I'm a fan!
* Organix Thick & Full Biotin & Collogen Shampoo/Conditioner: Bought this yesterday, tried it this morning. Not only am I madly in love with the smell, but my hair feels really soft and nice. I've been losing a lot of hair lately and I'm hoping this helps. I think it's a combination of all the exercise and dietary changes, and it happens to me every now and again, so I'm not worried, but I do want to help things improve. We'll see how it does!
One thing I do NOT love that I tried: Original Coconut Milk. Not a fan. Tried the So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk Creamer and that's good, but the plain, original milk is not for me. Can't all be winners. ;-)
Getting ready for my favorite holiday....
