After Baby Hair Loss

So my hair's falling out now.... 
I had the baby four months ago and like an alarm, my body is shedding all that hair it didn't lose naturally while I was pregnant. It's totally normal but it's utterly gross. 
And I guess I'm just curious how many of you out there have experienced this?

According to Babycenter it's totally normal but it's starting to turn up in places I would rather it didn't. I find it everywhere... on the pillows, counters, in my buttcrack, in the diapers! It is just RELENTLESS. It stops at about 8 months or so, at least in my case it has with each of the kids and I for one, can not wait!

There's the little culprit.


Anyway while it's annoying it's mostly just a nuisance except in the case of hair tourniquet syndrome which I have actually had happen with one of the kids before and it's really scary! Basically a hair because wrapped around a finger or toe and it is hard to realize at first because of all those little rolls and in some cases (not mine - ours was easily solved at home) they have to cut the skin. YIKES!


But anyway.. was just curious if any of you guys experience / have experienced this?

O! Fudge Subscription Box Review + Unboxing

*product was received free for review
O! Fudge is a monthly subscription box that sends you an assortment of fudge.
There are different subscription options available. For instance there's the classic subscription which includes four 2 ounce cups and can include flavors like Dark Chocolate and Butter Pecan. Then there's the quirky that also includes four 2 ounce cups but has flavors like root beer, and key lime pie.  Each is $10 plus a $4.95 shipping fee. But maybe you can't choose so you get both -- the medley includes all 8 and is $20 plus shipping.

The Business of Being a Bride


Yeah... that pretty much sums up how I feel today.


Let me tell you guys this story.

I mean you all already know firstly that I am married. Secondly, that I am doing my ceremony this September.
So, we bought the house and had the baby all in this year too and it's kind of left us tired, ragged, and pretty unprepared to plan a wedding. 
Not that you ever are since it's usually the first and hopefully only one you'll plan for yourself.

Beauty DNA Review + Unboxing

*post contains affiliate links
*Product was received for review purposes
 

Beauty DNA isn't just a monthly subscription - it's an experience


For $25 monthly Beauty DNA sends you ONE product that is tailored to YOU

Upon registering your subscription you go through an EXTENSIVE survey about your hair and skin.
Not just your face either - everything. You go over nails, health conditions, and  a plethora of chemicals that you may or may not have heard of. This is the perfect monthly subscription for someone who has very particular needs. Their very unique assortment of products is definitely not something that you would find in the standard beauty boxes.

My Sort of Absence

You guys may have noticed I'm not as present, or maybe not. I know I feel less present. 
A few weeks ago my son dumped an ENTIRE cup of coffee right onto the keyboard of my laptop.
I really quickly unplugged it, powered down, and flipped it over and after two days it was running. It ran pretty wonky but it ran. Now... it's not powering on. I do have a spare... however it doesn't have a webcam and it just doesn't have all "my" stuff. So, I've had to Dr. an at home tripod because the one I bought at Target totally didn't work.

Anyway, I am hoping that it miraculously starts working again so I can be blogging back at 100. I just wanted to keep you guys posted. I really like blogging at least once daily but it's been far more sporadic than I like. 
Send out those positive vibes for me!


Also, I received some Pasta Chips as a Klout perk which was pretty sweet.
