Having a super retro swan swag moment. My family thinks I am certifiably insane, but I am positive that they are just jealous.

Basically, my lake hair routine consists of three steps: condition, condition, condition.
No really, that’s pretty much it. I have super thick hair that I usually wash every 2-3 days, but while I am in the mountains, I try to forgo shampoo completely. Giving up the suds gives your hair a break from being stripped of the natural oils that help keep it healthy. I also give up all heated tools for the week, which is a pretty serious sacrifice for a curly-haired fool like me.
When I know I am going to be in the sun all day, I usually coat my hair with John Frieda Sheer Blonde Conditioner to protect my color in the heat. I apply it to damp hair using a wide-tooth comb and then sweep it all up into a bun or a hat. After a day on the water, I usually just rinse my hair and then apply a dime-sized amount of my favorite Living Proof No Frizz Conditioner. If you have thick/frizz-prone hair, this stuff is like liquid gold. Post-shower, I just apply Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream, braid my damp hair and sleep like Rapunzel.
Are we all still alive after a Star Spangled Hammered weekend? Recovery is imminent and there is no better place to do it than the lake. I woke up in DC this morning, tonight we are flying back to ATL, and from there I will be making the three and a half hour drive up to NC to spend a few days of our annual week at Lake Summit. Basically, I am family hopping from the BF’s to mine. Put me in a lounge chair on the dock immediately. I am exhausted just talking about this day of travelish things, but in preparation for the most relaxing and carefree few days of the year, I couldn’t resist sharing a few of my lakeside essentials:
If I had my way, my entire home would be styled in ZGALLERIE. It’s actually well on it’s way to being just that, and I only have 700 usable square feet. The struggle is real. This lust-worthy store has caused many a manic shopping encounter for me personally, and I feel like it’s only right to share the wealth with you.
ZGALLERIE is having a mayj sale for the 4th and these are my wish list picks. You only have until Monday to snag these deals, so don’t let the fireworks blind you. What is more Patriotic than a mirrored side table on which to rest your apple pie à la mode? Nothing, that’s what.
