My mom has told me stories about me as a little girl and how I wouldn’t leave the house without my hair styled and all my pretties on. It’s really funny to think about a 2 or 3-year-old really caring that much. Until now, because I have a 3-year-old that recently threw a tantrum because she hated the shirt I pick out for her. She screamed as I was trying to put it on her. I was getting so frustrated but then I had to stop and laugh because it made me think of all the stories my mom told me about me being this exact fussy little girl! To save time and to avoid a screaming fit I have now learned to give her choices and let her pick her shirt. Little sassy, girlie Althea is so much like her mommy it’s actually kinda scary.
With that being said its no wonder I grew up holding onto that girlie girl instinct and loving all things pretty! Make-up, hair products, and “pretties” are definitely on the top of my list. It’s such a rush to find new make-up I love or sample new shampoo’s, and hairspray. Ask my husband, I certainly have my share taking up space in our cabinets.
Here are a few of my top favorite girlie things right now:
I recently started using Paul Mitchel Awapuhi Wild Ginger shampoo and conditioner and cannot get enough of it. This line took 30 years to create and it certainly was well worth the wait. My hair has never felt, or smelled better!
My love for mascara has me in a constant battle of trying to find one I really love. Right now I’m really loving the new Maybelline Rocket Mascara. It’s no joke and certainly provides full lashes and I cannot get enough of it.
This statement necklace sure is a fun and pretty accessory, it will add that wow factor to any classic top! I recently stumbled upon this lovely piece, and had to add it to my collection. It definitely falls into that “pretties” category.
These few “pretties” are sure to make you feel pretty too!!
