Holiday Hair Wishes Come True With Hair Products From Folica

Sometimes I love my hair. Sometimes I don’t. Fair to say I have a love hate relationship with my dark brown locs. A few years ago I wouldn’t go a few months with the same do, I was constantly changing it up with colors, processing, hair products,  and chopping without caring much about the health of my hair. When I finally stopped with the ever changing dos I realized my hair wasn’t in the best shape and I had been stressing it out. So last April I chopped off most of my hair and started fresh, with a new hair care regimen and new hairstylist with the mission of growing strong and healthy hair. It’s been hard to prioritize health over new fresh hairstyles, but it’s important to ensure I’m keeping my hair protected and happy.

In between visits to the hair salon, I’ve had to rely on my hair styling products and tools to get the look I want. Sometimes my hair listens to me and other times it doesn’t! One thing on my Christmas list is a new set of tools to style my hair! Enter Folica! Folica knows hair is our most important accessory.

{Season of Giving} $25 Walmart Giftcard Giveaway



This year I put a limit on the amount of gifts I would get my daughter. More often than not I get her extra stuff that she doesn’t need! Case and point: her birthday was almost 3 months ago and she has about 6 gifts she hasn’t opened yet!! So this year I focused in on a handful of items I know she needs and has talked about multiple times. I have cut myself off from buying her more presents and I can’t afford any more!

Soooo in the giving season (and to avoid me buying more) I am giving away a $25 Walmart gift card for you to spend on your loved ones…. or yourself!!

Entering is a breeze, use the widget below!

There is something so special about the holidays. Doesn’t matter if you celebrate Kwanza, Hanukkah, or Christmas there is no denying people tend to have pep in their step around this time of year. It doesn’t look like we’ll get a white Christmas here in MA but we don’t need that to know that the holidays are in full swing. Storefronts are decked out with special decorations. Lights adorn trees and bushes. Christmas trees hold tightly to the top of cars. Ooohh the holidays!

Since my daughter was one we’ve created holiday cards for our friends and family. It’s always been such a fun process, getting photos done, choosing the photos, and designing the card. I have been so busy at work securing my promotion (which happened Friday!) that I have been slacking heavy on our holiday cards this year!! I usually have pictures taken in November and I always like to aim to have the design done by December 1st. Well not this year!! Time has slipped out of my hands and I’m scrambling to get everything together!

This year we’ve decided to send New Years cards (which gives us more time) and I think it’s a great alternative! I’ve gone through our address book and we’ll be sending a little over 60 cards this year – ahhhh. So I’ve got my work cut out for me, and will be designing our cards this week!

I am so happy to be partnering with Pear Tree this year! Not only do they have fresh designs but I stand 100% behind their story:

There is a moment, it happens every day, that makes us feel like kids on Christmas morning. The anticipation of something unexpected, something special. This moment happens just before opening the mailbox, hoping for the envelope that’s a little thicker, feels a little softer, and isn’t branded with bulk mail bar codes. Wishing for a card, just for you.

We at Pear Tree believe in this moment. We believe that lives should be shared, with style, at prices you can afford. We believe in the power of connection. We believe in that magic moment, the pause, that makes us all just a little giddy.

The story is in all of us. The story that bonds us. The story of You, Shared.

These are a few of my favorite designs from their site:

For those of you like our family that has yet to send out their holiday cards or need to send out birth announcements, invitations, or anything in between Pear Tree is giving you a $50 credit!! Enter today!
