"No Poo" Update: I'm Shampoo Free

I have been meaning to post this update for quite some time. Especially now that I have lived in a totally different climate for over a year.

I have not used shampoo in 4 1/2 years... Let that sink in... No, my hair is not stinky, greasy, or dirty and I am not bald. I have long curly color-treated hair and it has never been better! Not using shampoo was the best thing for my hair!

Granted this method will not work for everyone, because we all have different hair types. My hair is not oily at all, its dry, this may not work for someone with oily hair.

My hair used to be frizzy with lots of static and when I wore it down I had to use a lot of moose or gel. Now all I use is conditioner, two different types in the shower and a leave-in conditioner after! I only wash my hair every other day and I usually rinse it in the shower if I'm not washing it. My hair is healthy, smooth and soft!

I don't have before and after pictures, but if you're familiar with the Harry Potter movies, think of the transformation Hermione Granger's hair had from the first movie to the last!!!

You can read my first post with more details and other methods I tried here: http://www.testingtrisha.com/2012/10/no-poo-for-me-no-more-shampoo.html

Canvas Factory Giveaway!

I was given the opportunity to do a review for Canvas Factory and received a 16x20 inch (40x50cm) canvas that I could design myself with any picture I choose! Also I will be giving away another canvas of the same size for one lucky winner to customize for their very own!!






Since I do not have a recent family photo to use I went with a picture of a beautiful city view with an inspirational quote!


I must say I am very happy with how it turned out!






The Canvas Factory website is super easy to use, simply select "Create a Canvas" and it walks you through all the various options to customize your very own work of art!

During customization there are three options as to what wrap style you would like, I chose the Gallery Wrap, which has the image continue over the side of the canvas. You can also choose a solid color on the edge or a Mirror Image Wrap.


My canvas arrived nicely bubble wrapped to ensure it was not damaged during delivery! I was happy to discover the canvas already included a hook for hanging on the back!

I have bought canvas prints from stores and even painted my own that did not have a hook which then requires either trying to purchase and attach a hook or simply balancing the canvas on a nail which does not always work well.

I really like all the different creative options that Canvas Factory offers! Also, its not just canvas, you can also put your favorite prints on Acrylic Glass and Aluminum!

Summer is winding down to a close

I can not wait for Autumn to begin! I am over the summer heat and ready for the beautiful fall colors! I only wish it lasted longer, Autumn is over all too quickly and then the snow will begin and freeze my toes... 
Facebook is covered with "back to school pictures" my kids have not started yet but the beginning is just around the corner. Then the homework madness will ensue. 


We have had a good summer! It was difficult having my kids gone for three weeks but also a nice break for me, which I don't get too often. I missed them like crazy and cried the moment my children were back in my arms again.
