Love, Juliebug
There's something you should know about me. I have very thin, fine hair. Seeing as we live in Wyoming, I struggle with static electricity a whole lot for some reason. My hair also gets quite frizzy sometimes. I'm always on the lookout for a product that can help me tame my tresses without being extremely heavy. A product that works without a bunch of nasty chemicals even. Oh, dare to dream!

Recently I came across a styling cream by LuxeOrganix. It is the Moroccan Argan Oil Styling CreamBelieve it or not, it is available on Amazon. Have I mentioned how much I love Amazon? Love, love, love. This cream, by the way, works! I use a small amount on my damp hair and I can't even tell it's there. Well, other than the fact that it works. I don't have a stiff or sticky feeling in my hair and that is great because...secret #2: I play with my hair throughout the day. Ack! I know. I need to leave it be but I just can't.


Now back to the styling cream. It is a pleasant smelling, white cream. There are no harsh Sulfates, Parabens, Alcohol, Sodium Chloride, Phthalates or Phosphates so you can feel safe using this on any member of your family. Argan oil is very good for your hair, by the way. Oh, and before I forget - this cream has a built-in thermal protectant to help keep your hair safe from heat styling.

Give it a try! And, did I mention there is a giveaway? Oh yes, I didn't forget about you guys!

One day recently my husband and I were sitting on our bed talking. It was probably around my birthday. You know, the big 4-0? I was complaining about the signs of growing older. Talking about my gray hair, which by the way is insane lately. It could be that women are more prone to staring in the mirror picking ourselves apart. Oh look, a new wrinkle or two. Those bags under my eyes are deeper than they used to be. Is that an age spot?! Yeah, these are all things I've said to myself.

So, imagine my surprise when my husband dropped this "little pearl" in my lap.

"I like your gray hair."

What? What did he say? He's just being nice.

"Why do you like my gray hair?"

Cause I hate it, I thought.

"Because it means we're growing old together."

While I could focus on the fact that he just essentially called us old...I didn't. I chose to be in the moment and hear my husband's heart.

It's so true, people. We are growing old together. This is a beautiful thing. All the wrinkles, age spots, and gray hair in the world fade away in importance when compared with that.

I love this man.


 He is really good at keeping my perspective in check.
