Favorite Sea Salt Sprays + A Hair Trick

Today’s post includes reviews of my favorite sea salt sprays, as well as a trick for making scrunched curls or waves turn out great every time!

Happy Thursday!  I hope everyone’s surviving the heat.  They keep it nice and frigid in our office, so I’ve been managing my wardrobe for the fifty-degree temperature difference between my desk and the other side of the door I set ten feet from.

The Five Products I Can’t Live Without

Today I wanted to take a step back and type out my biggest takeaways from my first six months of blogging (technically I purchased my domain back in October, but I didn’t start posting regularly until December) as part of my continued effort to stop doing things just to do them.  I’ll use this post to reflect on how I can improve; you might find it useful if you started blogging in the last 24 hours.  Some items on the list are technical, while some are more general musings.  Here goes 🙂  cup of joe 2
