I’m Moving!

Since this blog is all about beauty, style,¬†and life, I thought I’d give a quick update on what’s going on in my life. I’m happy to say that I’ll be moving this weekend!

But, no worries, I’m not going far. I’ll be moving closer to town to be nearer to work and other fun kinds of stuff, and I’m very excited! I’ll be living in a townhouse for the summer (with a nice-sized walk-in closet), and if I like it, I’ll continue to live there for as long as I want.

If you have any new home/decorating/moving tips, feel free to share them with me!




Product Review: Batiste Dry Shampoo

Happy Sunday everyone! I don’t know about you, but Sunday is one of my favorite days of the week. It just feels like such a relaxing, carefree day and I never feel guilty if I don’t do anything productive on a Sunday. However, a few people asked about the Batiste dry shampoo that I featured in my last¬†“Ulta Haul” post, so I thought I’d be a little bit productive today and share my thoughts on it!

newmedbrunette_detailsI’ll admit that I’m a bit of a dry shampoo-aholic. My current favorite is Suave’s Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo. I love that it adds volume to my fine hair but also controls oiliness when I don’t have the time (or energy!) to wash my hair. One thing I don’t like about most dry shampoos (my beloved Suave one included) is the white color that can get deposited into my dark hair. To hopefully avoid this little annoyance, I decided to try out Batiste’s Hint of Color line of dry shampoos.

I picked up the dry shampoo in the color Medium/Brunette. I’m not sure if my hair is actually darker than I think it is, but I did notice a light-colored cast to my hair once I sprayed this dry shampoo. It wasn’t as bad as my normal dry shampoo, but I was slightly disappointed in the results. Also, when I went to rub the product into my hair, my fingers turned a little bit brown from the dye used in the dry shampoo. The color did come out easily when I washed my hands though.

One thing I did like was the smell. While a bit strong, it’s much more pleasant than my Suave dry shampoo. I felt more comfortable spraying it because I didn’t feel like I needed to hold my breath to avoid the smell (not that the Suave one smells bad, it’s just not my favorite).

Overall, I don’t think I will repurchase this dry shampoo. I wasn’t blown away by the results, and the fact that I have to wash brown gunk off my fingers every time I use it isn’t very appealing! I think I’ll be sticking to my Suave dry shampoo in the future–it’s a much better price and the results were about the same.
