Bad Hair Days? Never!


We’ve all had those days where we are just not happy with how our hair looks! Especially if it’s been a day or two since you washed it, it’s easily tempting to throw on a baseball cap or toss your hair in a messy bun. As a serial over-washer, I have to make a conscious effort not to wash my hair so often! It’s really easy to overwork your hair, especially if you’re using heat tools on top of that.
I recently started using Bed Head styling tools (the Morning After collection) and the heat settings that they have are so unique. It makes me feel so much better about using heat on my hair! It has settings for wash day, second day, and third day. How genius is that??

3 Vegan Recipes to Kickstart Your Morning

Guest Post by Caroline Vass of AttVaraVass.

Hi, I’m Caroline Vass and I run a food blog called AttVaraVass. My passion is food – real food – and I want to show the world that it’s easy to make great food at home in your own kitchen. It doesn’t have to be complicated nor does it have to be expensive, and your body and mind will thank you for it! 

I want to share my top three favourite breakfasts, vegan style. I recently started to take out dairy from my diet and I find so much fun to experiment with all the non-dairy products available out there. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

The Best Pitaya Smoothie Ever

Pitaya Smoothie

This is literally my favorite smoothie EVER! The best part is that it is so easy to make.
Pitaya (AKA Dragonfruit) is so delicious! If you haven’t had it before, it is somewhat similar to watermelon but milder. It’s full of iron, magnesium, fiber, antioxidants, and so much more! I am convinced that it kept my immune system strong throughout the last holiday season, as I never got sick and I was drinking these multiple times a week. It’s my go-to ingredient now!
