to save, or not to save.

I love to save money. I do. But there are at least 3 things that I REFUSE to scrimp on.

Hair care. I tried doing things a little cheaper, and it was a disaster. Dove and Garnier commercials may look fancy and promising, but they are not. Fekkai is my hair savior. It does exactly what it claims its going to do. The glossing shampoo/conditioner are so lovely. AND occasionally Target has a buy one get one free. So that's also nice.
Bread. I have noticed that you can buy a loaf of white bread for a dollar at some grocery stores. Cheap but SOOO gross. I grew up with my Mom's home made slices, so I am a little bread picky. However, while trying out the Costco samples one day, Matt and I stumbled upon "Innkeepers Bread." Its so yummy that its actually blog worthy. Take a bite, you'll be sold.


And jeans. I had never bought any pants over $40 until I met Matt who talked me into some designer "7's". I have never looked back. (minus the maternity jeans.) They last much longer than the inexpensive pairs and hold their shape and color throughout their life span. Personally, I prefer 7's and Citizens. (Side note: Not sure what kind of body you have to have to look good in skinny jeans, but I do not have it. I think my "ba-donk-a-donk" is too..."donky.")Okay, so not sure why I felt that any of this deserved to be announced, but there you have it.

I carried around the Fekkai Glossing in my cart the other day. And then the $18 got the best of me and I put it back...but every morning I wake up and get irritated. It makes my hair bea-u-tee-ful.

I only use cheap Fructis shampoo + conditioner in one. If the cleaning and conditioning doesn't happen at the same time, it's not happening.

I wouldn't have a problem with the bread, though. Good bread is really hard to come by. I'm sort of wishing that I had a Costco membership right now.

haha i don't know what it means to have a "donky" behind but I am pretty sure I was in your shoes about a year ago and so I tried some CHEAP-O jeans from forever 21 and I LOVED THEM. I am like you, I don't like to scrimp on my jeans. I admit I am a snob in that area... MY POINT is that I think you can TOTALLY wear skinny jeans. I wouldn't say it unless I really think you could. Seriously. It takes a tiny bit of getting used to but really, you could totally wear them. I don't know why I am going on and on... haha
