Time to get back into blogging 🙂 What can I say, it’s been an unplugged/lazy summer.
1. Relay Foods
I first tested out Relay Foods after finding their table at a local farmer’s market last year. They’re a virtual farmers market with pickup locations and delivery during the week. What brought me back recently to ordering through Relay is their meal planning function, they have a variety of meal plans and recipes. You can also take any recipe you find (Pinterest) and plug it into their site to get all the ingredients added to your grocery cart.
This is my favorite summer recipe from Relay:
|Zucchini noodles with Shrimp
Ready In: 45 mins | Prep: 40 mins | Cook: 5 mins | Servings: 4
So I’ve been dying my own hair since high school, this may seem strange, but growing up in West Virginia and Ohio meant it was more affordable and convenient to grab a $10 box of hair color and do it yourself. Other than some rushed highlighting jobs, its worked out well for me. Now there is a mid-level option between the drugstore hair color and the $200 salon dye job. From their site “Our hair color is crafted, one-by-one, with the exact formula your eSalon colorist feels will best attain your goals.”
I ordered a Dark Chocolate Brown permanent hair color last week along with uploading a photo and answering some hair care questions. eSalon ended up tweaking the hair color based on my picture, the colorist felt the shade I picked was too dark. The box I got in the mail also had two different color bottles, one for roots and one for ends. The color process itself wasn’t that different from using a box color, but I’m hoping to see this color lasting longer on my greys.
So the first photo is the one I sent to eSalon, the second is after applying the hair color. Almost identical…. but I do like the color.
So far I like, but time will tell. I’ve only shampood the hair twice, four-five weeks from now will be the real test. They are giving $10 off to new customers if you are interested, mine shipped for $20. Here’s my referral link, check them out!
3. Omni Mist
Discovered at the Baltimore Downtown Farmer’s Market, great scents and all natural ingredients. I have this one and a Lavender mist. I use them both as body mists and room spray. Perfect for summer!
I want my next rescue to be a pit mix, just not sure on the timing. I need a bigger place but don’t know if I can wait. My Facebook feed is full of pit mixes in rural Ohio shelters that need homes.
I love this post by Patina and Purl on getting her dog.
If you can’t be at the beach, bring the beach to you 🙂 Or forest, or stream, etc. Great way to unwind before bed and forget the day.
Have a great weekend!!
