dry shampoo

I realize that dry shampoo has been around for a couple of years now, but I just recently jumped on the band wagon, and it couldn't have come at a better time.  Seriously, this stuff is amazing!  I know there are a ton of options out there, but I love Klorane's Gentle Dry Shampoo.  It's made with oat milk which for some reason makes it feel decadent, not to mention, it smells so so good.

I'm a daily shampoo kind of girl, except on Sundays (to my husband's dismay, I make it a policy to not shower on Sundays).  I know kinda gross, but it's my deal.  Every hairdresser I've had says to wash my hair every other day, but whenever I try, it just feels limp and greasy, and by the end of the day I feel like Charlie Brown's Pig Pen.

Recently my hairdresser told me that a better way to extend my not-so-natural-red-hued hair is to use dry shampoo.  It's so simple. All I have to do now is wake up, brush my hair and throw a couple of quick sprays at my roots and voila, I'm ready to be out in public.  So now I only have to wash my hair three times a week! Another perk is that it really does volumize and makes my hair look and feel so much thicker.

Of course, these days I'm in yoga pants - let's be honest, not even that - my outfit really consists of a nursing tank, a robe and slippers with some sort of spit up or breast milk covering at least 25% of my clothes.

One more thing before I go,  everyone warns new mothers-to-be that you'll never have time to shower, but I shower every single day...I even showered on Sunday.

introducing amelia


I realize that it has been far too long since I've updated this blog, but I couldn't wait any longer to introduce the love of our lives, Amelia Hope Voris.

After a very long journey, Jeff and I are blessed to have welcomed this little butter bean into our lives on Sunday, May 5th, just minutes away from midnight. As Jeff says, she was determined to be a Cinco de Mayo baby. I 100% plan on writing more about her journey into the world, but now that I'm in my sleep deprived state,  I thought I'd share a few of my favorite family photos taken by the extraordinary Ann Molen.
