A Weekend to Remember...

This past week I've been awful at blogging - apologies!

Lets start with last weekend...Some of our friends from CT came down to Richmond to celebrate RBD's 30th birthday. We dined at the Blue Goat with some of our Richmond friends as well to kick off the festivities....

Last Saturday, we also took our friends up to C'ville to go wine tasting. The weather was amazing and so was the wine!!!

We had such a blast having them in town that it was hard to see them leave :(

Weekend Recap...

What an amazing fall weekend we had. It started off on Friday night when we joined some friends at a block party and then finished the night at the AT&T store where I got my iPhone4!!!


On Saturday, we had quite the day ahead of us. Myself, RBD and another couple started our day off at Carter Mountain Orchard to go apple picking.

After apple picking we headed to Jefferson Vineyard for some wine tasting

 Then we headed to the UVA homecoming game to tailgate and watch the game

What a day for a football game - and they won!

Hair Repair - Day One

Over the past month, I've been noticing my hair breaking in the most random parts (it's mostly in the front). I would literally look in the mirror and be like, "my hair dresser did not just chop off this much hair!" So, yesterday I did some research and found some helpful products and ways to keep your hair healthy. Here's what I'm going to try....

1. Try not to wash your hair everyday

2. Vitiamns

3. Use a brush with boar bristles

4. Use Aveda Damage Repair and Smooth Infusion
The Damage Remedy will add protien to your hair to help straighthen and protect any damaged ends. I used it this morning and it's really light and doesn't make my hair greesy or weighed down. It's suggested that for 2 weeks you use this product every time you wash your hair. Then after two weeks only use it once or twice a week.

Smooth Infusion is a product I've been using for months now and you can use it on top of the Damage Repair to help protect your hair from heat damage. Once again, I used this product and Damage Repair this morning and my hair feels smooth without looking greesy - YA!

My other goal is not to staighten my hair as much - so wish me luck!
And I'll keep you posted on how my hair looks after two weeks.

Happy October!

I can't believe summer has come and gone and now there's a cool breeze in the air...ugh. It's hard to accept at first but then I tend to enjoy spending my nights curled up on the couch having a glass of red wine and a nice fire....mmmmm. I also love fall fashion! The idea of turtleneck sweaters, deep red lipstick and layering, kind of makes me smile......
