Have I talked about how cheap I am before? I am the queen of cheap. So much so, that I scoff at most anything with a price tag above $22. My latest thrifty acquisition is this super soft button up from Urban Outfitters I got for $10 during their additional 50% off sale items sale. If you haven't yet been to one of these sales, you need to sign up for their newsletter right now and make sure you don't miss another one. Each time they come around, Dave, my sister, and I hit up every Urban in San Diego County and scrounge the sale racks like vultures.
Also, I've just discovered the miracle of putting coconut oil in your hair. I have a really crazy naturally wavy and usually frizzy dry mane. I used to hate my hair so much when I was growing up, and either pulled it back into a tight ponytail or straightened the life out of it. I've finally come to love my luscious locks and usually just let them do their thing. I often avoid brushing my hair (seriously only once a week) because that's when the frizz attack happens. But the other day I decided to try brushing it out and rubbing some coconut oil directly in. MAGIC! I don't think my hair has ever looked so shiny and tamed. Despite having natural waves, I typically have to use a curling wand just to make the curls look smoother. But the coconut oil took my natural curls and gave them life. Next I tried washing my hair with some apple cider vinegar, which is supposed to make it shiny and smooth. Well, you be the judge! These photos above are of my hair freshly washed the night before with apple cider vinegar, naturally dried, then moisturized with coconut oil, no styling what-so-ever. I've officially become the crazy person who swears by putting food on your head. But seriously, stop wasting money on expensive styling products like Biosilk and just buy yourself a big jar of coconut oil at the grocery store.Copy Cat: 1// Ecote Night Hawk Knit Surplus Shirt (Grey Button Up) - Urban Outfitters 2// Charcoal Grey Denim Shorts - Forever 21 3// Madden Girl Banterr Tan Braided Sandals - Steve Madden 4// Wool Chain Fedora - Forever 21 5// Perforated Leather Belt Round Buckle - thrifted
