A Lovely Bit of Muffin.

Get your mind out of the gutter, silly gooses.

The title refers to a scene from the Ricky Gervais/Stephen Merchant comedy “Extras.” (Watch it if you haven’t. Not as good as “The Office,” but still sublime.)


Why all the muffin talk, Bree? Because I found a leave-in hair treatment that smells EXACTLY LIKE POPPY SEED MUFFINS.


DermOrganic’s leave-in treatment leaves hair soft, shiny, is a heat protectant, and repairs damaged hair. You can find the entire DermOrganic at Ulta or online here.



The Best Smelling Hair Product in the Entire World.

No, I mean it.


It’s called “Healing Oil Treatment” by Macadamia Natural Oil.

You know when a guy walks past you in a store, and he smells so good that you end up (inadvertently) following him around? He doesn’t smell like strong cologne or body spray. He just smells….yummy. Like it’s a mix of his shampoo and laundry detergent. This is that smell!


And it doesn’t hurt that this product leaves your hair super soft, super shiny, and cuts your blow-drying time in half.

However, I don’t recommend standing in the aisle at Ulta, with your eyes closed and your body swaying back and forth ever so slightly while you deeply inhale it. You may get some odd looks. Just sayin’.

$13.50-$39.95 at Ulta and Target.

Double, Double OIL and Trouble

Ok, so you all know that argan oil is the new black, right? It’s in every beauty product these days-shampoo, foundation, lotion, lip gloss, etc.

Some companies like to jack up the price when it comes to this special ingredient. (FYI, argan oil is an aromatic oil from the seeds of the argan tree- native to southwestern Morocco.)

Let me first say that I’m not opposed to expensive beauty products-at all! If it works, don’t break it. And a lot of the stuff out there is worth the high price! But if you can find something for less, that works just as well, (or better), why not use it?

Dove is a great, affordable brand. And their argan oil hair product line is awesome-no bull.

My favorite item is the Nourishing Oil Care Detangler. Like I’ve mentioned before, I have very fine hair, but lots of it. I get knots and bird nests galore. AND my hair gets dirty very fast-it needs to be washed every day.

Dove’s Nourishing Oil Care Detangler leaves my hair super soft and it doesn’t weigh it down or make it greasy. Sold! (For $4 at any drugstore.)
