Less is more!

Happy February 1!!! Shortest month, but with the most goals I swear! I’ve never been obsessed over Valentine’s Day – however I wanted to at least get excited for something I love- Making less more!

Since I was younger I loved to take things from my closet and transform them. I loved DIY, and I loved to create and design my own outfits. When it comes to holidays and events 8/10 I decide to put stuff together that I already have in my closet. This way I always put my own twist on whatever I wear.

When the New Year came around I wanted to go through my closet and get rid of a tonnnn. I had the thought “less is more” in mind. Minimalism. I filmed a “Less is more with L’ange” video on my channel that I will be posting! I explain here how not only was my look simple and easy, but L’ange’s products make your look more, even only using 2 products like I did!

I have a lot of comments and messages sent to me weekly asking where I purchased this or that, or even just endless compliments saying “I love how you put things together,” “I love your outfit,” “style me.” It makes me happy knowing my creativity inspires other women.

I love to take clothes and transition them, I love to layer, I love to mix things together.

In my video I show you all how to take a simple shirt, hair style, and bold lip- and use these tips for any birthday, event, holiday, or night out!

My healthy hair journey!

I’m bacccccck! I feel that out of all social media outlets I’ve been neglecting my blog the most, and I made a promise to continue to write, write, write. So now I will start overloading you guys with posts! If you do follow my other pages/channel you probably notice how much I’ve been posting about hair, hair, hair!

I work full time for an amazing company- L’ange! I love to hop on any chance I get to share a discount with my readers, because I’m telllllling you this brand will change your life!

First and foremost I’m such a low maintenance person in general, so I have always loved at least keeping up with a funky unique hair color-but ironically the first day out of the salon was pretty much the only day I wore it down and styled- haha

I just never took time/had time to straighten my entire head, curl it, you name it. When I discovered how quick and easy L’ange made it, I fell in loooooove; and began my hair journey!

Around this time last year I had super short, bright bleached platinum/silver hair. Loved it at the time-looking back now like yikes! Although my hair was freshly chopped it looked so dead, damaged, and sad. After trying out a few products from L’ange I knew I wanted to get more involved! I began using their purple shampoo and conditioner, nourishing gloss, dry shampoo, and root booster! (Not to mention their wand that i’ll never stop bragging about). Every single one of these products has made daily & weekly appearances in my hair routine!

I noticed not only did my hair look amazing, but it felt SO soft and healthy, and was growing like weeds! You can see all of my photos on my Instagram for first-hand proof! I only decided to chop my hair again because I’m not a fan of super long hair- all I do with long hair is throw it in a bun, and if it’s down I look like I’m 12!

After collecting a ton of tools and products from L’ange, it became life changing. Having a collection with everything you could possibly need makes it so easy to manage my hair routine, in such a quick and easy way!

And I also uploaded a video of my hair journey on my Youtube Channel – Life in the Fierce Lane

What’s in my bag?

Back again, I have less than 4 days until I’m back in full-time student mode, so I figured I would squeeze in as much content as possible! Blog sets will turn to tests so so soon-sigh.

So I’ve always been a big bag woman! Not “big ‘into’ bags,” but have had a love for big  bags. I throw everythinnnnnng in it, which is such a love-hate relationship.

A few months back I was sent a diaper bag/backpack/tote from Lily Jade 

I will be uploading a video on our Youtube  Channel tomorrow with all of these items I’ll be writing about here.

Being a mom “on-the-go,” means I throw everything in my bag, this is exactly why I needed a huge bag that’s sturdy, won’t bend or break, and one that will last!

The first item that always goes from my desk to my bag is my dry shampoo from L’ange

I love this dry shampoo specifically for the way it makes my hair feel and look! Usually other dry shampoos -yes correct the greasy hair, but they leave my hair feeling dry and brittle! I swear this dry shampoo is called deja vu because it brings me back to the exact moment my hair was freshly washed and dried!

It doesn’t have a color to it, so I don’t have to worry about putting this in my hair in a careful fashion-just spray, shake, and done!

I also really love how the packaging has a tight cap, so when I throw it in my bag on-the-daily, I never have spills!

You can find the dry shampoo here —> Deja Vu

Next I talked about a few more items in my bag- these amazing, thick diapers/wipes from Parasol , my favorite mascara called ‘Grand opening’ by KB  and an amazing scar cream that I’ve been using post-surgery from CELSUS!

My last 2 items I chose to share were a few more beauty items – first the Maracuja oil by Tarte , and lastly one I’m insanely crazy over, L’ange’s Root Booster

I feel as if the Root Booster and the Dry Shampoo are the dynamic duo! When my hair goes flat and greasy, especially with 2-3 day hair, or right after a work out; I find these guys are the best solution! As I said, the dry shampoo revives my hair, and this root booster gives me so much volume and fluff! I’m obsessed with the results!

I get crazy volume when I apply it to my damp hair and then blow dry it, but just as much volume with dry, flat hair! You can see the results in all of my videos where I show before and afters!

I could go on and on about every little item in my bag, it’s huge and jam packed; but these have been my go-to’s over these past few months! I would love to hear some feedback from you all about any ideas or questions you may have!

The power of Heat Shield!

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a great 2018 so far! I’ve been up and at ’em. If you haven’t already seen everywhere I’ve been announcing our Youtube channel has finally launched! In these videos I am always featuring my favorite products from L’ange Hair!

I wanted to dedicate this post all about the importance of Heat Shield on your hair! Before blow drying, before straightening, and before wanding I am always coating my hair with heat shield. Misting your hair with protection is so important to avoid heat damage-and i’m the Queen of damaged hair-haha

A few years back I remember a hair dresser telling me not putting heat protectant on my hair is like throwing a dessert in the oven without coating the pan with butter/oil- yikes?!

After falling in love with L’ange it became such a habit to throw on their heat shield, and aside from feeling comfortable with not damaging my hair, I fell in love with the smell, and how it made my hair feel!

I have noticed such a difference in my hair- after straightening it with Heat shield, I no longer have those stiff dry ends. And after wanding my hair, I don’t have those little fly aways.

 

Lastly, if you haven’t seen my video about their Purple Shampoo and Conditioner duo, you can see it here –> SUBSCRIBE!

 

Don’t forget to like, comment, and subscribe! Below are also a few photos of my results-so icy, I’m in love!!

Clarity

Tomorrow is the last day of the craziest year. I could go on for hours complaining about the goals I didn’t reach, the opportunities that didn’t work out, the “time wasted,” the tears, the downs, and that would never ever make anything better. Never beat a dead horse…right?

I began this blog years ago. I used to vent about my emotions, and it began when I was young; when I kept a journal, and my life was in a book, not on the internet. But don’t get it twisted, please..this is only a super solid glimpse at who my family and I am.

When I went through with 2 pregnancies, it was like a huge swarm of confidence came flying towards me. So I began telling my “story,” giving advice, and trying to inspire women around the world to embrace motherhood.

This past year has taught me so many lessons, I could write a book. And of course, as I said I can sit here complaining about all of it, or flip the script like I always have. No matter how hurt we as humans get, no matter how many obstacles we face; we survive. This world is ugly, but there is still so much beauty. I decided to post a “photo-free” blog tonight. This note is first for you, Kasha. You became Mrs. James Patrick Perry this year. You successfully completed a semester packed with 5 classes this year. You loved two little girls unconditionally for 365 days straight, why is that an accomplishment? TWO IS A HANDFUL!!! You made amends with old friends, you made new friends; new connections. You learned to let go, you learned to move forward. You underwent a scary, painful surgery, and still bounced back. You are strong, determined, and you can accomplish anything.

This note is for you, my reader. For some strange reason you find yourself reading this post. You may be bored, interested, nosy, but mostly you’re inspired. If you take nothing from my blog, nothing from this “year,” take this-

YOU are strong, you are not your mistakes. You can reach any goal you set. You can cry, you can be lazy, you can make excuses; but it WILL take you longer, and put you behind.

Life happens, we are all human. (This blog post is all over the place). We are breathing, and living in a generation full of lost humans. Humans confused, aiming for more, comparing, giving up, losing hope, faith, self-respect.

Don’t get lost. Although we hold our phones 24/7, hold reality closer; the little moments tighter. Text your friends, hug your friends, kiss your family. Don’t end your night angry, or start your morning lazy. Aim to inspire at least 1 person a day.

So many confuse “social media presence” to “social media absorbed.” So many “lose themselves” on the internet. So many have 2 sides. We record memories with phones, try to use your eyeballs. I did this so many times this year, and I’m proud. I’ve attended events, brought the girls to new places, and experienced so much with my phone in my purse and not in my hand; it felt amazing.

We are privileged to have technology so close to us, as long as you keep your feet planted deep down to earth, you will never become lost. I embraced all of my platforms this year so heavily, to contribute to my family finances. It felt great.

As we begin a new year, we all know how fresh it feels. We capture all of our memories within 365 days and bundle it all into a vibe. I cannot wait to run away from 2017-haha 

As 2018 approaches I hope you all have a safe New Year, and if you can take anything out of this post, take the fact that I am messy, I am human, and I am 150% relatable, so if you need advice, ask me. If you need a laugh, watch me. If you need a friend, I’m here.

We caved and made our Youtube Channel. After an insane amount of clarity, I remain humble and I am awake to reality. Making money from home is a blessing. Spending my days with my smart, growing baby girls is more than I could have ever asked for; and laying beside my best friend every night makes every day reality feel like a dream.

I cannot wait to share advice, inspiration, and a little piece of the Perry’s with you all. Our Youtube Channel is aimed towards Family, Fashion, Food, and Fitness. Life in the Fierce Lane will launch early 2018. I have insane amounts of mom advice, designs, tips, and hacks for all of you!

Have a blessed New Year!

Throw it together 

Perfect day to start a routine right? Things have been so crazy for us this summer and I’ve never been more excited to jump back into the books! Going back to school has been a huge goal of mine since my first postpartum experience, but unfortunately finding and maintaining childcare was always the biggest hurdle. 

Avynn will be entering Preschool, and I’m hoping my school schedule will work perfectly with Ivory being cared for. 

I’ve never realized how much overthinking my brain could actually handle, until I became a mom! Now that I have two daughters I’ve found ways to cut corners and care less about things I used to beat myself up for. 

With school starting, and finally being recovered from my stomach surgery, I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of blogging. James and I finally decided hey we do have some extra time to create our channel- months ago we announced our “Life in the Fierce Lane” YouTube channel; but depression is no joke.

I went through months of hating social media, deleting photos, and staying low-key with my family. I realized my blog and my collaborations with brands really gave me a creative outlet, and I missed it. I will be re-launching a new and improved brand later this month – I’ve been hesitant for 3 months now – yikes 

Getting my “ducks-in-a-row” has been like pulling teeth because our brains are so powerful, yet so damaging when our mental health is sad. 

I’ve been finding clarity, and feeling like Kasha again (so corny)!

I felt this look is my perfect representation of how I’ve been for the past few months- thrown together!

I took a men’s tee and threw a twist on it- literally-twisting my belt 

I felt comfy, and a stranger told me to wear more color! Haha
