Gordman's is Growing......







Gordman's in Dyersburg, TN is officially open!!!  
They just opened 72 new locations - check HERE to find a location near you, so you can have just as much fun as I did!

The prices at Gordman's are amazing!!  I found amazing deals - can you believe I got all of my stuff for $100?!  There is something for everyone at Gordman's - home decor, Christmas decorations, Clothing, Shoes, Household items, and SO much more!

I personally was shopping for Fall home decor!  I'm about to get married and I have a whole house that needs decorating.  I plan on putting the "hello fall" sign and orange and white pumpkins on my fireplace mantle!  They had the cutest little decorations perfect for any kind of mantles or side tables!

I fell IN LOVE with the "Thankful" pumpkin!  I love the rustic vibes..still deciding on where I want to put it!  I'm thinking on my kitchen counter!  It does have the option to hang on the door, too!  I'm definitely planning on putting the "welcome" sign outside!  I styled it above with the small pumpkins and Lola!  It's going to be the perfect addition to my outdoor decor!

The metal tin container is a mail holder!!  I'm hanging this on the wall in our Laundry room!  It will be the perfect place to keep our keys and mail organized.  They had a TON of stuff like this!  It was so hard to decide what I wanted.

I walked past the faux grass several times and just kept staring at it!  I originally wasn't going to buy it because it wasn't too "fall", but I think I'm going to put it in one of our bathrooms!  It's something that never goes out of style!

I also got a candle! They had a large selection of candles - and most of them had super cute decorative jars!  I went with this navy jar in the scent "midnight fig"and it's soooo good!

And last but not least, I got a pack of Apple Cinnamon bread mix!  They had a ton of these in different flavors, also mixes for protein pancakes, scones, dips, soups, and more!  It was so hard to pick just one! 

What I shared is just a SMALL portion from the home decor section!  They have everything!!  Throw pillows, wall decor, decorative chairs/benches, hampers, containers, lamps...you name it, they got it!

Hair Care - All the Products I Use.....











I'm beyond obsessed with this top!  This smocked style and square neck is sooo flattering and I literally want to by all the things with that fit!  It runs a little small in the arms, so I suggest sizing up!

HAIR CARE - ALL OF THE PRODUCTS & TOOLS I USE!

Okay, I've been meaning to get this post up!  Can't believe it's taking me this long to write it lol.  I get questions all the time on what products I use on my hair - answering them now!

My Salon uses the best products ever, and most of what I use on my hair comes from there!  You can shop the entire line of products HERE.


IN SHOWER PRODUCTS:

1. Shampoo - THIS ONE is my favorite from the line!  They are all really good though!  Just depends what you are personally wanting/needing for your hair.

2. Conditioner - THIS ONE

3. Hair Mask - I usually only use it once a month, but when I do it's THIS ONE

WET HAIR PRODCUTS:

1. Leave in conditioner/detangler - HERE

2. Serum - I've been using THIS BRAND - it is expensive, but I bought it in September of last year and I still have a good amount left!  Given, I only wash my hair about once a week.that makes a difference too!
When I run out of it, I'm going to try THIS ONE from Unite!

3. Setting Lotion - HERE - this stuff helps my hair hold curl!  I apply it right before I blow dry, roots to ends!

4. THIS STUFF is a miracle worker!  It makes your hair soooo silky smooth!  You must try this product!! It does require you to blow dry your hair though - worth it!

5. Hair Brush - HERE

 
DRY HAIR PRODUCTS:

1. Glossing Spray - HERE - I use this as a heat protectant + it makes your hair super shiny!  I spray it when my hair looks a little dull too!

2. Texturizing spray - HERE - I've tried several different ones and this one is the best!  I spray it before and after I curl my hair!

3. Hair Spray - THIS ONE hold so well!  I only use it on my roots when I tease my hair! I usually just tease it at the crown!  I also tease my hair around my face when I put it in a pony tail and use this hair spray then too.

4. Dry Shampoo - HERE - and you can read about how I use it HERE

5. Curling Iron - THIS ONE - It's expensive, but worth the investment! 
THIS ONE is cheaper and amazing too!  My hair salon uses this brand!!

6. Teasing Comb - HERE


That was a lot of info - hope it was helpful and not confusing!!

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!
