How to go a week+ without washing your hair......








Happy Friday!!

I'm always telling yall on Insta stories how I wash my hair MAYBE once a week...I can usually go 10 days!  I've gotten tons of messages about how I do this!  Sharing my tips and tricks in today's post!

I will say that having extensions makes a HUGE difference.  I think it is one of the main reasons why I can go so long without washing...so crazy!!  I highly recommend the extensions I wear - will talk more about them in another post in a couple weeks.
 

Tips and Tricks:

1. Obviously, dry shampoo is going to be discussed lol!  HERE is the brand I use!  But the real trick to dry shampoo is blowing drying it in!
I generously spray it on the areas I need, let it set for a couple minutes, and then massage it into my scalp as I'm blowing drying it!
GAME CHANGER!!!

2. You can train your hair!!  Do you wash every other day because it just gets to oily??  You can train it! 
Start with every other day, and do that for a couple of times.  Then, push it an extra day and do that a couple times....continue the pattern until you reach you goal! (lol, goal)  Your hair will get use to it and will stop producing so many oils.  Soon, you will be able to do it once a week!
I hope I explained this good enough!

3. Sleep with your hair up!  I usually use a scrunchie and put it in a loose top knot!  Personally, it doesn't make creases in my hair.  I got my scrunchies from HERE

4. Do not be afraid to wear your hair in a pony tail.  This one might sound silly, but I wear mine up probably 50% of the time and I swear it helps.
I'm a dental hygienist, so naturally I have to wear my hair up at work!  I work 3 days a week, so my hair is up on those days!  If I'm at home, my hair is usually in a pony tail or bun.  For the most part, if I'm going somewhere that day, I wear my hair down but sometimes I do wear it in a pony tail or braid!! You can def make pony tails cute!

5. HATS - lol.  I love my hats, and they hide the 10 day hair!!  I just ordered THIS ONE for spring!

Okay that's all my tips!  If you try any of them, try #1!!  It makes all the difference!

Three Looks for Valentine's Day.....







This is probably what I will end up wearing for Valentine's Day!  This is my "casual" haha!  And I'm loving the bright hot pink!!  Size down in top - that brand always runs big!









I actually wore this skirt to my b-day dinner!!  Gimme all the sequins this time of year - even for Valentine's Day!  Love it paired with a chunky sweater like the one above!!  
The sweater would also be cute with jeans and boots for another casual V-Day look!








ADORE this skirt!!  I've been wanting a leopard maxi skirt for the longest, but haven't found one I loved - until this one!!  You could also pair it with a red or pink top for a pop of color!!
Size down in the skirt!

Favorite Items from 2018......




Finally getting my first blog post of the year up!

I have kinda taken a break from blogging and Instagram the past couple of months, and I'm so glad I did!  I've really been focusing on the people around me instead of worrying about how many likes I get on a photo.  
If you are a blogger reading this post and suffering from the comparison game...TAKE A BREAK.  You do not need any kind of negativity in your life...especially from Instagram.

Okay, now back to the reason for this blog post!

My FAVORITE things I have purchased in 2018!

1. Old Navy jeans - My favorite pair are these!  But really any of the mid-rise Rockstar jeans are the best!

2. Quay Sunglasses - my all time favorite sunglasses..I always get asked where they are from!

3.  The whole Tula skincare line!  I have a full blog post on everything I use HERE.
This stuff has seriously changed my skin, and I know a ton of other people who use it too!
Be sure to use code SIMPLYMORGAN for 20% off your order!

4. OTK Boots - I had a hard time finding ones that fit right, but finally found a really good pair!  I will say that I do not have super skinny legs..I would say mine are average, and these are stretchy and actually stay up over your knee.  They come in 3 colors and usually go on sale for 30% off so I recommend waiting until they are on sale AND make sure you get express shipping or it will take forever for them to come in. Linking all 3 pairs below.
Grey 

5. Basic Tee's - These are my favorite!  I wear them year round.  I have them in several colors, but I do recommend sizing up!  They shrink a little when you wash them.

6. Self Tanner - If yall have followed me for a while, you know that I absolutely loathe applying self tanner!  Because of that, I was determined to find one I didn't mind applying.  I tried I think 4-5 different ones and found one I really love!! The color is so good and lasts about 6-7 days.  Linking everything I use to apply it and exfoliate below.

7. Gold Hoop Earrings - I wear this pair almost daily!  They are so light-weight and go with everything.
P.S. - I do not make commission from this link.  I truly love these and wear them daily so I wanted to include them in today's post.

8. Lipstick - I'm so glad I came across this brand!!  It is officially my favorite lipstick.  It is a little drying, but still looks so smooth!  My 2 favorite colors are Honeycomb and Sake!

9.  Hairspray - This stuff is THE best...holds for daysssss.  I used the Tresemme extra hold hair spray for years, but I'm officially converted to this one now!  I usually only use hair spray on my roots where I tease my hair.  I use this texturizing spray to hold my curls.

10.  Express hoodie - I'm so sad that this is no longer available, luckily I snagged it in 2 colors!  I did find one that it very similar here and comes in some really cute color options.  By the looks of it, I would size up for a more oversized fit.

11. Wedges - I wore these all last spring and summer!  They are so so comfy and come in new colors and a slightly new style for Spring 2019!  Highly recommend!

12. Buff City Soap Shower Oil - Okay I'm really obsessed with this stuff.  It leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth + it smells amazing!!  I recommend the "Love Potion" scent!!!  It smells just like Victoria's Secret "Love Spell" that we all wore in middle school!  I apply it right before I get out of the shower and slightly rinse it off.
Once again, I do not make commission from this link, I just really love the product!


4 Holiday Looks......















Happy Wednesday, again!!!

I wanted to get a few holiday looks together for any girl and occasion! 

Look #1 - Metallic Midi Dress:  Loveeee the rose gold metallic!  It's even prettier in person..I was shocked when I opened it!!  The black midi boots are sooo good too!  They make your legs looks leaner and longer!  Love this for a cocktail attire look!

Look #2 - Fur Cardigan and OTK Boots:  The coziest cardi ever!!!  The fur makes it EASY to dress up!  I have on a simple tee underneath and I would still consider this "dressier", just because of the fur!  And these are seriously the best OTK boots!  I've been raving about them on instagram!

Look #2 - Red OTS Sweater: If all else fails....wear RED to your Christmas party!  You really can't go wrong with it.  This sweater is like $25 and it actually stays off the shoulder and doesn't slide up!  If in between sizes, size up!

Look #4 - Lace Peplum Top and Leopard Boots:  This top is SO good!!  I was obsessed when I saw it online, it comes in red too!  The pleated detail gets me....it's my favorite style ever!!  This one runs a tad on the short size, so be sure to wear a high waisted skirt or jeans!

Also, these boots are some of my favorites!  Love the leopard print and they are actually pretty comfy!
