Lulu Lust List

Here were are with another Lululemon post. I swear I could live in their clothing 24/7. OH wait..... I already do

Wunder Under Crop
To me, this light grey screams spring! I do have a pair of crops and several Wunders but no WU crops. I think that needs to change....

Nice Asana Jacket

I am sure you can tell, I mostly wear grey and black I really need to get a life and add more color but we like what we like. And this jacket is so cute that neon orange is just the perfect pop of color I need in my life.

 Energy Bra
Kinda ob...sessed with their bras and this color combo is a must for my closet! This one got great reviews online so I am going to try it on next time in the store :)

My Hair Care Routine: UPDATED

 So if you all remember this post from 2012 >> yikes << its been a while since I have written about my hair care routine and it has changed a bit. My hair is darker now as well as much longer. I still cant get over that it was 2012 when I wrote that. Definitely one of my more popular posts so I thought I would update you all on what I currently do for my hair. Still very simple.

SO I have worked at a salon now for over a year and pretty much that entire time I had them wash my hair about 2-3 times a week for me because of our insanely horrible water pressure and my small shower head. When you have this much hair, it takes like 45 mins to completely rinse everything out. I ain't got time for that!!!!

So things that are the same: I still wash my hair 2-3 or maybe more times a week. It depends on how nasty I get during crossfit ;)

Things that have changed: I am now addicted to this vegan hair care line Framesi
I use the 'color lover' pink ones because that was recommended to me by the ladies at my beauty supply store. I don't think they sell this line in stores but online and at cosmetology professional beauty supply stores. It is the best shampoo/conditioner combo I've ever used! Makes my hair so soft and shiny. I get so many compliments on my hair. So go get ya some here! and thank me later!!!!!

Now that is what I use IN the shower, now after I get out all I do is spray in some of the best leave in conditioner ever..... the original It's a 10! Literally, the best leave in conditioner ever. If you haven't tried it you need to.
After I spray and de-tangle with this amazing brush I put my hair in a topknot and sleep in it.
Prior to blowing out, I put some CapriClear from my last post, or my favorite Redken product Diamond Oil. Depending on what mood I'm it, I'll switch between the two. And of course, I finish my hair with the oils as well for a silky smooth look.

Below are some recent shots of my hair haha
It's funny, when I started this blog I had short blonde hair and now it is long and dark, my how things have changed!

I think the key to the health of your hair is minimal product use and minimal heat. I only blowout like twice a week and curl once and fix certain pieces throughout the week. Less heat and more products without silicones and sulfates is key to long, healthy hair!!!!

Product Review: CapriClear

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend, I am here with an amazing product review.

I am sort of majorly obsessed with products that do double duty. I mean....anything to make my life easier right?!

This is a product designed for people with super sensitive skin or eczema. I have neither BUT, if you have read any of my previous posts you know how much I love coconut oil and all of it's amazeballs uses. The reason I love this product is because it is 100% fractionated coconut oil!!! It is called CapriClear

WTF is fractionated coconut oil you ask?!
Well it is literally a 'fraction' of coconut oil. To cut out all the scientific mumbo jumbo, it is the medium chain triglyceride oil because it is primarily the medium-chain caprylic and capric acids that make up the bulk of the oil. Also, the coconut 'smell' is eliminated and the shelf life is greatly increased due to this process.

So why is it good for me?
First of all, it is a ONE ingredient product { hallelujah!!!! } and it is good for sensitive, dry flakey skin, stretch marks, scars, etc! Being an Esthetician I am helping people with all kinds of skin conditions on a day to day basis and this is truly an amazing product that I use and recommend to all kinds of people. With the great price point, it is affordable to most everyone as well.

How do I use it?
Here's the fun part, I literally use it for everything!! From a nighttime oil treatment for my face, to a lash and brow growth serum, to my hair!! Yup, my hair, it has replaced my Moroccan Oil. But more on that in another post.

Get your paws on it HERE!

Garage Games One Overview

 { Some light packing for GG1 }

These past few weeks have been crazy busy getting ready, and competing in the Garage Games One Crossfit competition.

It was my first one and it was an amazing journey. I have only been hardcore crossfitting for about 5 months now and I had heard the comps were crazy and that's really when you figure out if its something you truly want to be competitive in. I was in awe of the other athletes. There were people 1000x stronger than me and it was truly amazing to watch. Crossfit is not only a physical journey, but more of an emotional one. And those of you who crossfit know what I am talking about.

It made me want to take my training to a whole new level. Have any of my readers been to or competed in one of these events???

I have added some recent photos as well as photos from the event. Blogger was not working on my comp for the longest time so forgive me for the delay!!!

Below are some pictures and moments from my journey....

SS picture of the amazing oly lifter Jon North. He is crazy strong and youd never guess it.
Everyone from my box family was so excited to see him lift

Candid shot of a good friend, fellow athlete, and WINNER of the female scaled division and I cheering on our fellow athletes or as I like to call them family!

 New Wonder Woman converse I wore during two of the WODs
Super cute :)

One of my favorite pictures because for one, I had done this very same WOD twice before and had not finished. And I finished it with time to spare at the competition. SO very proud and thankful for my xf family and all of their support.

Go out and grab your dreams by the balls!!!!!
