DIY Sea Salt Hairspray

By |June 27th, 2012|

One of the most amazing perks of my new job is that I’m often in the ocean.  I have to admit, the transition from stay-at-home mom to Naturalist Attendant for The Ritz-Carlton’s Eco-Adventure Center has been… well… SO MUCH FUN!!  

Other than getting paid to go on Eco-Adventures and teach people all about the sea, another added benefit to my work is that most days of the week I am sporting beach hair.  What exactly is beach hair, you ask?  It’s those luscious, wavy locks one gets after a day of paddling through the waves.  Used to be that the only way to get said locks was to go to the nearest pier and dunk your head into the ocean.


Pinterest Challenge: Summer 2011 Edition

By |August 4th, 2011|

You may have noticed I’m now on Pinterest, and I’m totally addicted.  I can’t stop pinning things!  I find myself drawn to Pinterest a lot more than the other social media because by nature, Pinterest is a lot more personal.  When I make a friend on Pinterest, I’m not just looking at pictures of them smiling at the camera; I’m seeing all kinds of things that inspire them.  It’s a whole new level of knowing someone, and it’s wonderful.  You can check my Pinterest boards out here – I’d love to see you there!

I first read about the Pinterest Challenge while browsing around The Lettered Cottage, and was instantly curious.  Plus, it was nice knowing there are others out there (like me) who can barely pull themselves away from the computer because they’re too busy pinning everything in sight.

Once I watched this hilarious video (I was giggling enough to make my husband walk in and ask what I was doing), I was hooked.  ^_^  I mean c’mon, how cute are they?  And by they I mean these girls:

Sherry, Katie, Emily, and Lana.  And yes, their blogs are all totally adorable and fun, so go check them out. […]

How fun is that?  I mean seriously, when was the last time you poured all your heart and soul into a handmade gift for a perfect stranger?
