Oh friends. It’s been a while since I’ve treated myself to some pampering! I just had my sweet little girl Avery, shy of six weeks old! She’s a dream come true. But nights have been long and I really haven’t had much time to practice any self-care! 

To start, I made a fun DIY hair mask recipe at home!


DIY coconut milk hair mask

Coconut milk is wonderful for hair and is budget friendly. Super rich in fatty acids and nutritious oils, coconut milk serves as an amazing base for a quick and easy homemade hair mask. This mask is awesome for beauty treatments and to use on a regular basis for moisturizing dry and treated hair- which is why I made this!


  • 1 avocado 
  • 1 tablespoon liquid honey 
  • 2- 4 tablespoons coconut milk 
  • 2-3 drops tea tree essential oil


Blend Blend the avocado, honey, coconut milk, and drops of tea tree oil into a puree using the high speed on a blender. Make sure all lumps are gone. Gently massage the mask onto wet hair and scalp, making sure to cover each strand. Cover hair with a shower cap and let sit 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with cold or lukewarm water until all traces of the mask are gone. Dry and style as usual!

Which is why I was so excited to get a little “me” time today and try out a new hair color, paint my nails, plucky my eyebrows, do a mud mask, and whiten my teeth! I have found it So important to take a little time out to make sure I feel good. 


I have been long overdue for a new color!! I’ve noticed little grays popping up (ah!), and the overall color was pretty drab! Not anymore! I love my new look! I love how shiny and vibrant my hue is! I used Schwarzkopf keratin color anti-age hair color in Delicate Praline. It only took 30 minutes to dye my hair! It was super easy to use and made my hair look fuller, younger looking, and shinier in just one application. I wanted to find some professional quality hair color at home that offers flattering colors while caring for the hair. The Schwarzkopf keratin color was super fun because it cares for your hair as well as provides 100% gray coverage. I love that I experienced less hair breakage and was able to apply a pre-treatment for even color results! The intense colors that were available were really fun to choose from. My favorite part about the hair color after was how rich the color looked and how much more shiny my hair appeared!

Schwarzkopf Keratin Color offers fuller hair with up to 80% less breakage and low odor coloring experience due to the ammonia control technology. Just 3 steps: pre-treatment, color with keratin complex, and conditioner with extra keratin care complex!

Here is a quick tutorial for all of you on how easy it was to apply Schwarzkopf Keratin Color at home!

First I put on my safety gloves and did a patch test on my skin. Next step was the pre-treatment which I applied to the ends of my hair. 

step 2

Second step I added the color cream to the developer and shook the bottle gently, then applied directly strand by strand until I evenly colored my hair. I did this while my hubby watched the kiddos for me and it only took about 3-5 minutes. So easy! Then I set an alarm for 30 minutes and got some dishes done!

When it was time to rinse out my hair I simply rinsed until the water ran clear. I then did the 3rd step- the Keratin Care Complex Conditioner. The conditioner felt SO good and soft on my hair- silky smooth. I let it sit in my hair two minutes then rinsed!

step 3

I love how the color turned out! My hair before looked pretty drab and I had some highlights that needed a bit of toning up.

I also had about six grey hairs I needed to cover up!


After my hair color was darker, richer, and shinier. The highlights looked SO much better than before and were mostly covered, which I love. It had been almost a year since I had my hair done!


My favorite part of coloring my hair at home was the fact that I was done within 35 minutes and was able to get back to cuddling with my newborn. I love my new look and feel so much better!
