Quick Beach Wavy Hair Straight from the Bottle

Summer Friday’s have this Busy Momma on the Go, Go, Go! This happens to create some serious #hairstruggles post morning work out. As you can imagine after a hour of Zumba followed by another 30 minuets of a shoulder lifting my hair is a sweaty drenched mess.

A shower is a MUST!

Being that my Friday’s have been crazy busy these past couple of weeks, running madly outside of my home on various errands, leaves me a very small window of time to grab a quick shower. Yes, the wet hair slicked back in a pony or bun can come in handy, but I have found a super easy way to create Beach Wave locks, in minuets!! (quick shower included)

I have to share this picture with you so you can see just how STRAIGHT my hair is. I have very fine hair and volume just does not come natural for me, even with color on my hair! Go, Figure!

This would probably be a good time to post a picture of my sweaty post work out hair, but I will spare you for today! 😉

Here is my hair after a quick shower. Check that volume out! You would have never guessed that I was a sweaty mess just 30 minuets prior to this photo!

Get the Look

Now here comes my favorite drug store find of the season………………….Walgreens!

seasaltspray

 

I have tried several sea salt sprays to get this look with much disappointment.

I LOVE this spray!

Wash your hair , towel dry, then comb out any tangles.

Pick out something fabulous to wear and get dressed.

Go ahead and apply your favorite bronzer, blush, eye shadow, mascara, eye liner, and lip gloss. (If you desire!)

Shake your TXT IT spray and spray all over your tresses. Starting from the bottom of your hair, start scrunching your locks from the bottom to the roots. (As much hair as you can hold in your hand.) Squeeze a handful of hair and release.  Repeat until all of your hair has been hand scrunched.

*Feel free to spray in more spray and scrunch some more until desired look is reached.

Now to my favorite part:

Let it air dry and Go!

You will notice that the bottle says “All day (un)dressed Look. If you are going for something more put together, then I suggest skipping the spray, blow dry out, and roll with wand.

Remember we are in a hurry and on the go, that’s why we are opting for the messy beach waves look!

L’Oreal Paris did not give or ask me to review this product. This review is strictly of my own personal opinion.

How do you achieve quick beach waves? I would love to learn other ways as well! Comment below please!

Coconut Banana Bliss Pop Recipe

Cool, Cold, Refreshing

bananacoconutbliss

I love Fridays!! Nothing feels better then to start your day off with some heart pumping cardio, samba dancing fun! Last night I decided to throw some ingredients together in some new pop cycle containers I purchased at our local Wal-Mart. After I got home from the gym, I was thrilled to remember I had prepared these last night so they would be ready for today. They were the perfect refreshing snack after a hot and sweaty work out! These were so delicious I just had to share them with you guys!

ingredients

 

Super EASY and FAST to whip up!

What you will need:

1 banana

coconut milk (I used unsweetened vanilla)

Freezer pop containers (Mine makes 6)

Freezer

Easy Prep:

Slice banana slices thinly into the freezer pop containers, then add the coconut milk. Secure lid that holds the freezer pop stick. Place in your freezer to freeze. When completely frozen remove from Freezer and run the top under warm water until lid comes off easily. ENJOY

mm

Very smooth coconut and banana flavor! I will try using a few drops of vanilla abstract next time to enhance the sweet flavors of the coconut milk and the banana slices.

It was blissful and the kids enjoyed them too!

I hope you enjoy my Banana Coconut Bliss Pop recipe! Feel free to share with others!!

We don’t Sweat, We Sprakle

Well it’s Friday and we have all survived another work week! YEA! I love Friday mornings because I get to hook up with a few girl friends to get our SWEAT on in Z U M B A class! (Missed you Jamie and Amy) I guess I just had a hunch this morning when I woke up that this class was going to make me sweat my tail off. I had to pull out my I don’t Sweat I SPARKLE tank top!

The class was pretty intense today! We had a fill in Zumba instructor and she kept our heart rate sky high what felt like the whole hour. By the end of class we were a hot sweaty mess! This was definitely a day where I was glad that I had my facial cleanser wipes on hand in my gym bag! I ended my work out session alone working my back and shoulders.

I had to hurry back to my home town to pick up my kids from school! LAST DAY of school for the 2013-2014 school year. Where does the time go? We loaded the car with gasoline and headed to take my step kids to their Mother’s for Summer break!

On the drive home we went through a rain storm, nothing serious, and I ended the day right with a yummy delicious fresh oriental salad at Applebee’s.

It was a crazy busy day, but I enjoyed every minuet of it!

What did your Friday look like?

Zumba with girlfriends

I am so excited this morning! Four girlfriends and I are going to go take on Zumba with a fierce vengeance! One of them is a Zumba newbie!! We will shake it, swing it, roll it, and sweat what motherhood has graciously given us off! I can promise you we will not be in sync, nor will we be ready to join the So you think you can dance cast, but we will laugh and we will have fun!

Nothing motivates you more then a friend! If you are too afraid to start something new, just drag a friend along with you!

I love these girls!

It’s Friday!!
