Weekend Update {InstaLOVE}


Y'all it's Monday again...boooo hissss! I hope you guys had a loverly weekend and you're ready to tackle this work week. I have an terribly insanely busy week at work but I will try my best to stay connected. Especially since all next week I will be out of town (for work, not pleasure) and you will be hearing from some lovely guest bloggers.

For now let's focus on my awesomely relaxing weekend - You can find me  here on Instagram and keep up or just search me by {nikkib918}.

Can I just go ahead and tell you that the best part of my weekend was the discovery of 2nd day hair?? OH MY GOSH WHERE HAVE I BEEN?? How did I never know the baby powder on greasy roots trick before now? My mom failed me by not teaching me this when I was in high school! I've been washing my hair every.single.day for my whole life. 2nd day hair is amazing, I'm kind of obsessed with it now. I ALMOST attempted 3rd day hair today, but decided I'm not that brave yet. I'll save that for a weekend. Thank you all who gave me great hair advice last week! I can't wait to try all them all!

Goals for this week: get my workout on at least 3x, eat clean, only wash my hair every other day, cook dinner every single night, keep it all together despite my insane work week.
My stylist gave me this Biolage conditioning treatment back in June & I hadn't used it. Used it Saturday - love it!

Me & this lazy bum took a 3 hour nap Saturday - ahh so refreshing!

Thanks to all your awesome advice last week on my how to fix damaged hair post, I attempted 2nd day hair for the first time ever. LOVE it! #babypowderup

It came hell & high water yesterday evening when I had to run errands with my 2nd day hair, but it managed to stay in tact. #winning!

My Sunday night ended with more cuddle time with this cute lil furry face. She's mama's best pal when daddy's at work.

2 and 3 day old hair are the best! Baby powder is my best friend! Sometimes if I am feeling uber lazy I will go for 4 day old hair if I am not leaving the house! LOL

Hi Nikki!

i found your blog via Brie over at Sophistifunk! I love what I see so far :) I'm your newest follower so I just wanted to say hey!

PS: 2nd day hair is the best! I also recommend dry shampoo (I actually just posted about dry shampoo on my blog!). Good luck!!

But baby powder in dark hair wouldn't work :( It would make me look grey and what not.

Dry shampoo works just as well! ha

I use Psssst brand dry shampoo from CVS and this stuff: http://www.amazon.com/Schwarzkopf-Osis-Dust-It-10/dp/B001CN5S4C

It is a total life saver and gives your hair amazing volume and zaps the oil right out of it.

Shampooing everyday is a pain in the butt anyways :)

Stephanie @ bourbon and glitter said...

Look at that little fox face. Too cute. 2nd day hair, yes! My hair is just too long and thick to wash and dry every day. Yours looks great! Good luck on your goals this week.

Alicia Marie said...

Gotta love a good cuddly pup! And yea, second day hair is always the best, but by the night of the 2nd day I'm washing mine before bed cause I swear my hair turns into an oil slick. BLAH. Yours looked super cute!

Elle Sees said...

girl, you need to start reading my blog archives! i've got so many second day hair tutorials and reccs for dry shampoo, if you ever wanna skip the baby powder.

jes @ twosmuppies said...

i've heard about the baby powered tip but i have dark hair so i've always been hesitant to try it!

Lindsey said...

I need to try the baby powder tip!

Tamaras Blend said...

Your 2nd day hair looks amazing, you really look beautiful. I haven't tried the baby powder yet, but it's on to-do list!

Emilie said...

That'a girl! You rocked that 2nd day hair. <3

Stephanie said...

Oh I try to do second day hair but I just can't pull it off! I swear after 12 hours it already looks like I dumped bacon grease on my hair. =( You on the other hand look fabulous!

bmwalsh said...

Second day hair all the way girl! I NEVER wash mine two days in a row and it's amazing what it can do for your hair.

Tilly is looking so cute!

Sami said...

So proud of your second day hair! I am a big fan and on the weekends I definitely rock 3rd day hair all of the time! Tilly is a cutie, as usual! Thanks for linking up :)

Meg {henninglove} said...

tell me more about the biolage treatment what does it do? maybe i need to look into that and yup baby powder to help with the greasies, and cheaper than dry shampoo too

Alisa Marie said...

Sounds pretty similar to my weekend! Pretty relaxing! I need to try that Biolage treatment!

Makaila said...

You look so gorgeous girl! You rocked that 2nd day hair!

Lindsay said...

2nd day hair is the best! I really only do it when I straighten my hair and it makes all that effort I put into it worth it. Also love, love long naps like that. They are just the best. Popping over from Weekend Update!

Brittany LeSueur said...

Your hair looks great...going to try that baby powder stuff!! I have plenty of it around these parts

oldernawtwiser said...

I can't believe you weren't doing 2nd day hair! There's dry shampoos that are awesome too- I hear GREAT things about the Suave brand, but I cannot. find. it. whenever I look. I use the Tresemme kind, and it's amazing!

mHe said...

Okay maybe this is bad buuut I can go 3 to 4 days without washing my hair. I have long and very thick hair, I have to basically schedule an hour to dry and style it. So I basically wear different hairstyles depending on when I need to wash. Ponytail at work = just washed. high top knot at work = washing it that night. hahaha oops! well we all do what works for us :) xox - hope

Ash Louise said...

Haha :) Second day hair. Oh yes, I know it well. When I was a little kid I HATED BATHS. I mean really reallyyyyy hated them. My poor mom. Sometimes before I would go to school I'd be all upset that my hair looked so greasy, and she'd always tell me its my own fault and when I would get home I HAD TO take a bath. But then she'd throw some powder in my hair so I wouldn't be embarrassed. Such a good mom.
And I got away with a bath only every other day. AHahaha!

See we bloggettes wouldn't let you down and you look gorg!

Tricia said...

Baby powder huh? For some reason I just imagine myself walking around with white clumps in my hair that I missed. It sounds like it could be very messy!

tiff@thecoffeehouse said...

umm, you are adorable and so is that cuddle time. really makes me want to leave work and go home and cuddle. blah.

Niki said...

YAY for second day hair!!! I love your cuddle time and he looks like a fantastic cuddler!!!

Courtney B said...

Baby powder is the best trick ever! Such a life saver for blonds!!

TracyZLesh @ Then I Got To Thinking said...

haha - glad you found out about the 2nd day hair - I have the opposite problem. I have to go at least a day or two with out washing or my scalp dries out!!

Kelly { MessyDirtyHair } said...

Just came across your blog, too cute! New follower here :)

Dana @ five30three said...

No one taught you the baby powder trick? You poor thing! I bought one in college and my friends were all like "what the heck?" Little did they know it would change their lives too. That was back in the day when you could still smoke in bars, so we'd stink of smoke but the powder helped take the stench away.

Thanks for linking up :)

I go every 2-3 days. I can sometimes make it 4 but it isn't pretty...
