I remember the days where I would be out with the girls 3-4 times a week. Now that I’m a mom I can count on one hand the amount of kid free nights I’ve had in the last 6 months. I wouldn’t change a thing but I do still love a good night out 🙂 Since nights out are rare, I love switching up my style each time. I’m horrible at keeping up my color so I’ve been rocking a blonde ombre for a good three years now. There’s no need to change my hair color permanetely now that I’ve discovered temporary hair color from Sally Beauty. It comes in a variety of colors, doesn’t damage your hair and comes out after one wash. I also live for the L’Oreal Paris root cover up. It temporary covers up your roots to perfection! No salon needed 🙂 For full product details keep scrolling:
