Summer Style Heros

Happy Friday! This was one of those weeks that crawled but I’m also very surprised that it’s Friday already. I can’t explain what is happening but here we are.

We are seeing some of the smoke from the wildfires out west and it’s created a sort of haze to the sky. It’s so sad to know that so much destruction is happening from these fires.

I made Half Baked Harvest Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken Salad yesterday and loved it. While it didn’t look nearly as pretty as Teighans, the flavor was 10/10.

Questions from the Monday Morning Q&A box:

One. What are your go-to snacks? fruit, carrots + dip, hard-boiled eggs, Kind breakfast bars

Two. How do I know the difference between breakage and new growth? You can usually tell by looking closely at the end of the hair. If it’s split, white, or looks damaged then you know it is likely broken from damage. If it’s smooth and straight, that tells me that it’s more likely new growth.

Three. Favorite detangler? I love It’s a 10 and Pureology Color Fanatic Leave-in Spray.

Four. What are your favorite sneakers? I really like my Nike Phantom React for every day, but for running I prefer the Nike React Miler.
