What I've Been Reading: September 2012

I'm back from California! We made it home safe and sound last night after 9 long days of traveling. We had a great trip -which I will recap soon- but I'm pretty exhausted and happy to be home. Nothing feels better than sleeping in your own bed when you return from a vacation. Anyone else feel this way too?

I can't believe it's October already. I really need to get my butt in gear and start nesting. Our little girl will be here in just 16 weeks!!!

Question of the month: What bath products are you currently using?
Shampoo: This month's shampoo is Herbal Essence Color Me Happy but tend to switch out my shampoo every so often because I feel like my hair gets into a rut and tends to look better if I switch things up every month or so.
Conditioner: Aussie 3 Minute Miracle. I love this stuff, it smells great, it conditions well, and it's affordable enough to use everyday.
Body Wash: St. Ives Vitamin E, Philosophy Snow Angel, and Philosophy Coconut Frosting are my favorites
Exfoliant: Homemade Sweet & Spicy Sugar Scrub. This is really easy to make, all you need to do is combine the following ingredients in a container: 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar, 3/4 cup olive oil, 2 tsp. cinnamon, and 2 tsp. nutmeg.
Moisturizer: Palmer's Cocoa Butter (great for pregnancy), Vaseline Firming and Radiance Lotion, and my newest addition is Lush Charity Pot (with Cocoa butter and Almond Oil)


  1. I totally agree with switching up hair products, and it's funny you mentioned it because I was just thinking about this the other day!! I wondered, though, if it's really the hair product or the lack of getting a haircut. I have longer hair, so I admit that I go waaay too long inbetween cuts. Everything's magically better once the dead ends are gone! Haha.

    And I totally agree about sleeping in your own bed after vacation. It is the BEST.

    1. I'm in the same boat! I only cut mine 2-3 times a year but my stylist never says that it's badly damaged when I go which surprises me.

  2. So excited your home! Can't wait to see your recap. :)
    16 weeks?! That'll go by so quickly for you. More outfits please!!

    1. 16 weeks will fly! More outfit posts are on the way...
