Mermaid hair!

Before and after

I only get my hair done once a year. That includes cut and bleach, color and style.

For my everyday hair routine, I don't use products with sulfates, silicones, or alcohols. I don't use any heat, I let my hair air dry. I basically follow the "curly girl method". This allows my hair to stay hydrated and healthy and curly. To maintain the color, I apply a deposit color made by Ion that I buy at Sally's every few months go freshen up the color. 

This after picture is from a cut, color and style by my good friend Meeka Scull from Studio M Salon in Brunswick, OH.

Updated office

This was our before picture of our office. It had gross chipping mint painted walls and ruined finish dark hardwoods. 

Here is the after. We had the oak floors refinished with no stain. We painted the walls with a nice gray color from Behr. I also decluttered the hell out of this room.

Our christmas mantel this year.

I decided to change it up a little and not go so intense with Christmas. I kept things simple by just adding ornaments to the skull's horns and adding acorns to the owls on the mantel.

Upstairs Remodeled

Spent the last month working on the upstairs of our house. We worked on two bedrooms, the stairs, a hallway, loft area and three closets. Ripped out the carpet, patched walls, sanded, cleaned, painted ceilings, walls and trim. Just had the wood floor refinisher guy sand & refinish our never touched before hardwoods from our 1929 brick bungalow. They turned out beautiful. Here are our before, during & afters.

Look at how much of a difference it is!

Xmas Decor

Here's what Christmas is looking like at my house!

Star from Big Lots (Thanks Mom!)

Tree & Ornaments from Target (last year)

Wreath from Marc's

Who's a pretty boy? Tyson!
I spray painted these deer. My mom got them from Glenn's Surplus Store in Shelby, OH. They were a brown/black color.

Ornaments from Old Time Pottery.

Davey got me this owl for Xmas!
Jar from Marshall's. Owl from Marshalls that I spray painted silver.
Trees & Bows & Garland from Marc's.
Frosted Wine Bottle w/ bottom cut out for candle. It was a party gift from our friend's wedding last Fall.
Glitter Star!

Lantern from Ikea.
Painted deer.
I love how the tree reflects in the glass of the door.

Reindeer ornaments were a gift from a co-worker (Target I think). Snowflakes were from the dollar bin at Target last year and Icicles and Glittery Acorns were from K-mart this year. M & K's were from the dollar bin at Target this year.
It's taken a few years to gather all the things to decorate my house for christmas.

Kiki's passed out on the couch sideways. Too cute.

**Update** We opened up presents early and Mikey got me a canon speedlite flash for my camera, so I just had to test it out on the puppies! You can actually SEE Dante now. Lol. Please excuse his bone guts on his chest and his wet beard from drinking water. He did not prep for this photoshoot.

The beautiful Kiki

She was being weird and wouldn't look at me.
Maybe she didn't like the flash?

Happy Holidays everyone!
