What's in my shower?

Nothing says beauty blogger fail like standing in my shower (with the water not running, mind you) trying to get a legit photo of what's in my shower and all the iPhone filters in the world won't to get a good picture. So much for trying to get a "hey, this is how I roll with my awesome shower goodies" photo. Womp-womp.

 So here's the break down of what I use to be Lindsaylicious...

T.I.G.I. Catwalk Fashionista Shampoo (pictured all the way on the left but really not visible) - I scored a nice liter size bottle at T.J. Maxx recently. It seems that T.I.G.I. updated their packaging to this but I am not sure if the formulation is the same.

The color of the shampoo itself has a slight violet tinge to it but I'm not 100% sure if affects my hair color or not. All I know is it safe for color treated hair and leaves my hair soft (I've accidentally forgotten conditioner before so I know this doesn't leave my locks brittle). I wash my hair "as needed" - it usually equates to every few days or when it starts to look dingy (#blondeproblems).

H20 Plus Hair Repair Seaweed Masque - Another TJ Maxx find... Love that you can use as a conditioner (leave on for 2-3 minutes) or as a masque (leave on for 5-10 minutes)! I tend to reach for this more as my conditioner when I do shampoo.

L'Oreal Advanced Hair Care Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm - This stuff is creamy golden goodness for my hair. Love love love. I grab this stuff any time I color my hair or any time I know I will have to blow-dry vs. letting it air dry as much as possible. Any time I've done a complete bleach out, I leave this stuff on my hair overnight for some extra TLC.

Confession time, I use a combo of cold cream and head-to-toe baby wash to remove my makeup and cleanse my face. Sometimes I remember to use my Clarisonic, sometimes I don't. Which reminds me, I need to charge that thing up! The cold cream breaks down my mascara/eyeliner really well and the baby wash cleanses without stripping my skin yet still leaves me free of residue. Winning!

Ivory Soap - Sometimes I prefer to not go the body wash route and go plain and simple.

Suave Naturals "Everylasting Sunshine" Body Wash - Smells yummy, the scent isn't too overpowering and sometimes you need a little sunshine in your day. Also works well as a bubble bath when you wanna get your soak on!

And hold up, when did T.J. Maxx start the option to shop online?!? The two T.J. Maxx's near me are sort of meh in their collections so kind of stoked to see what's new online! Are you a Maxxinista? I love a deal for sure!

Falling in love with fall... And mad for plaid.

There's something lovely about fall... The colors changing in the leaves, the crispness in the air, and of course fall fashion. Autumn is awesome, y'all. I often identify fall as a new beginning and there's something in me that yearns to walk around crunching leaves with my Frye Carmen Harness Short boots, wearing plaid, and holding hands with my sweetheart (perhaps with a soy pumpkin spice latte in my other hand).

I'm a little mad for plaid as of late... I've added two plaid shirts to my wardrobe and realizing their both of the green color palette but one pops more than the other. Plaid is that perfect mix of punk and preppy which I tend to blur lines with regarding my current wardrobe choices.

This Cloth & Stone plaid shirt from South Moon Under was my first plaid addition to add to this year's fall wardrobe. I love the longer length and that I can also pair with leggings or tuck it into a skirt. I personally wear mine with the sleeves rolled up. I cannot wait to add a cardigan or a sweater when the weather gets cooler. The color palette could either go more punk or prep with this one. Definitely a favorite item of mine!

Oh UNIQLO, how I love your well made yet affordable pieces. I had a last minute wardrobe malfunction of sorts this week and needed something appropriate to wear. So here we go... A green and fuschia plaid shirt with a touch of sky blue. This is totally preppy McPrepperson but I kind of dig it. The flannel is super soft yet lightweight on this one.

I'm still having issues with getting my domain back, it is a big ol' pain in the booty. Can I pay my $10 and get my domain again?! Too much work, perhaps I shall become TheRetailista.net or something along those lines? I am not a happy camper with Google Apps and Enom. Womp womp.

And last but not least, I am in the market for new job opportunities... Business is business and I'm living in the fashion capital of the East Coast so why not embrace it?
