Product of the Week and a little blue

I'm linking up for POTW

a couple weeks ago, I started looking at my hair. First of all I don't LOVE my hair color but I refuse to deal with coloring or highlighting it because a) it is expensive and b) the upkeep is more than I care to have to remember to do something about.
My next observation is that I want my hair to be shinier and look healthier. I did some research and read tons of reviews and information about various products. THEN I looked at cost because let's be serious, I know you get what you pay for but at some point I have to publicly admit I don't "ball so hard" and have a budget. So I went with something that is pretty inexpensive. I picked up some Organix shampoo and the Moroccan Oil.

I am so in love with both products! The oil was about $8 and the shampoo I can get at Walmart for $5.50! I noticed a difference immediately in my hair - both in the shine and how clean it felt. The products are sulfate free and I am thinking that has something to do with it. AND it smells really good =) It is weird that I think $6 for the shampoo to be inexpensive because I kind of get ruffled when I buy Pantene for $10 for a giant bottle. Ha what a weirdo!!!

You have probably noticed that today is March 1st. For some reason, I have been feeling a little down and out. I have a very happy life but today I'm a little grumpy and a little down.

I have amazing friends and a too-good-to-true husband and family.
We are gearing up to celebrate our SECOND wedding anniversary in a couple weeks and we are taking a four day weekend to spend time together at the end of the month.
March is going to be awesome!

But somehow, this morning, I woke up cranky. I feel anxious and I KNOW for certain, without a doubt, it is because there are things on the horizon that I am anticipating. I am finding it a little difficult lately to live in the NOW, the present. I look forward to weekends beginning on Monday. That is just silliness!

To top it all off, the last two morning I have ended up with headaches - yesterday, it didn't matter what I took, I had a headache until I went to sleep! This morning I woke up with a minor headache and it is being persistent. SO annoying! Thankfully it is duller and I think the meds I took are FINALLY starting to kick in.

I am trying to get out of this funky, eeyore-esq mood. Blogging helps me and reading all your positive comments and your amazing blogs/posts lifts me up. Thank you guys so much for being amazing and supportive and sharing with me when I share with you! Y'all rock my world =) Maybe a little Mexican food and ice cream are in order tonight =)

how do you get out of your funks?

Awesome products! I love the coconut milk... makes me think I'm some place tropical. I want to try the argan oil too.

Thanks for sharing.

I use this shampoo and conditioner (the pomogranite version) and LOOOOVE it!! I like the price too :-) I'll have to check out the oil-- did you get it at Walmart as well? Thanks for sharing!

I was like that for a while yesterday too, just grumpy. Surrounding yourself with bubbly happy people definitely helps - anything to make you laugh. :)

Ok, I am a beauty junkie and I have never tried this. I'm ashamed in myself!!! Going to pick some up, after Lent, of course, since I gave up shopping.


Thx for linking up!!
