New Year, New Hair + Formulate Shampoo & Conditioner Giveaway!

New Year, New Hair + Formulate Shampoo & Conditioner Giveaway!

Hey everyone and happy new year! 2018 went by so quickly, as I am sure some of you agree. I am looking forward to the new year and everything that is in store. Just a few things to reflect on in 2018 that happened to me:

  • I started the year with a major career switch. It was a rough start, to be completely honest. I didn’t know what I was going to do, but I knew I needed a change. I am so happy to say the risks I took were well worth it, and I’ve learned how to make the most of an opportunity.

  • I started over with my blog. This was half an accident as I lost all of my data from my last blog and couldn’t upload old posts. I was a little devastated at all that lost work but couldn’t be happier with the new look of my website!

  • Luckily, I have had the chance to take little vacations throughout the year. This includes: Portland, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Newport & Laguna Beach, & Cabo. Definitely want to keep this up in the new year.

  • Lots of time with family and friends. This is important. I know I can get carried away in life but time for family and friends is so important to me. Also, I realized the friendships you make when you are older are much more meaningful.

  • Last but not least, I changed my hair right before the new year! I went shorter, darker, and added a little bit of burgundy. I know you are probably thinking it isn’t that big of a deal, but you’ll see why this is important later ;)

I am excited to start the new year off with a giveaway for you all! I have partnered with Formulate, a company who produces customized shampoo & conditioner. As one of the first customers, I got to try their product out towards the last half of 2018 and have been using it for a few months. What makes Formulate unique is that each bottle is made specifically for each person. In order to actually get a shampoo and/or conditioner, you take a quick survey that asks questions about your hair goals and needs. The answers you pick determine the formula for your product!

*Formulate sent me a complimentary set of shampoo & conditioner, but all thoughts & opinions are 100% honest and my own.

I mentioned I changed my hair earlier.. now you’ll see why! I began 2018 with very blonde hair. It takes a lot of maintenance to keep it blonde for someone with naturally dark hair. I have never had a problem with having dry, unmanageable hair until I continually bleached it after 2 years. With Formulate, I restored a lot of moisture back into my hair making it very manageable and also have had noticeably more volume in my hair, which was one thing I mentioned I wanted in my survey. Also, I picked the ‘Green with Envy’ scent, and it smells amazing!
