It has been a little over a week since the Texas Gulf coast was hit by a real jerk named Harvey. First slamming onto land near Corpus Christi he then decided to hang out in Houston and its surrounding areas for a few days. Texans are a hospitable bunch but Harvey was not welcomed. Sleepless nights of watching your street turn into a river. Continuous news coverage of people in anguish after losing everything. Red Cross helicopters flying over your home on the way to carry out rescue missions. It has been a truly devastating situation. In any tragedy though lessons are learned. These are the things I learned while experiencing Hurricane Harvey.
Having a good skincare routine is so important. Aging is inevitable but by taking proper steps to stay ahead of Father Time one can look younger much longer. I would never lie and tell any of you that I am the poster child of healthy eating and getting my proper nutrients. I am obsessed with sugar far more than broccoli. However, one thing that I have never skimped on is skincare products. The right lotions and potions can make such a huge difference in your skin. My latest find is Jan Marini’s C-ESTA Serum. Rejuvenate your skin with the perfect cocktail!
There are quite a few stereotypes about Texas girls. One of those is that we love big hair! While that stereotype is true try having hair up to the heavens in humid Houston weather. It is not a feat for amateurs that is for sure! But you can have good hair in Texas! You just need a little help!
Day after day I curl my hair before going out and about. Unfortunately, the moment I step outside it generally falls into a sad state leaving me left with the feeling that I did all of that work in vain. I have tried product after product to get my curls to stay. Most didn’t hold up to their promises. And then came Kenra into my life!
Those of you who follow Channelling Dolly, especially on Instagram, know my obsession with my little man Barkley. I find no greater joy than that of spoiling the boy with toys, vacations, and products for dogs. Recently I had the opportunity to team up with Pet Magasin to learn about their heated dog beds! This one is for all the fur babies out there!
One year has passed today since Prince left this world. Left behind was the music, the words and the memories. Memories of Purple Rain. Memories of the most talented man to have ever graced a stage and memories of seeing him in person for the first time. Memories of the Super Bowl performance in the pouring rain when he still managed to look perfect! Knowing that those memories of our generation’s icon are all that we have now will forever be so saddening.
For the man who created the soundtrack for my life, Prince, I will forever and always love you.
