Cymbidium Orchid Wedding Invitation

 Yesterday I was searching for more inspiration for the Soiree coming up in September. I cam across these cute wedding invitations by Blossom Accents. There are so many things I love about this invitation.

I love the change in color to the Orange that you find in the center of the Orchid.
The color selections is perfect. Plus...Purple is my favorite!

 The frosting paper adds the right touch on top of the Orchids to mute the color of them. 
The Font is the right color so it can be read clearly.
You have to wait and see if I place any of these inspirations in the upcoming invitation!

Tea Tree Oil - What can it do for you?

Tea tree oil is used as an antibacterial and antiseptic agent. These properties make it ideal for keeping hair healthy since it will thoroughly clean your hair and scalp by deeply penetrating into your skin.


  1. Adding tea tree oil to your shampoo can eliminate dandruff since the oil kills the scalp fungus that causes it.
  2. Cradle Cap

  3. Although its safety in relation to use in infants is debated, some people add the oil to baby shampoo to treat cradle cap, with is a flaking, yellowish rash that appears on babies' heads.
  4. Baldness

  5. Tea tree oil can potentially help those suffering from thinning hair or baldness: it cleans your hair follicles of residue, which can impede hair growth.
  6. Moisturize

  7. The oil has a moisturizing component, which can improve the texture of dry or frizzy hair.
  8. Lice

  9. People of all ages can wash their hair with a shampoo-and-tea-tree-oil mix, as well as comb the oil through their hair, as a daily treatment to kill lice and their eggs.
  10. Natural

  11. Because the oil is a natural product that is free of chemicals, dyes and other artificial ingredients, it is a healthy alternative to using chemical shampoos and conditioners.

Hair Update

So I have been very busy lately. I know all of you are thinking where in the world has she been? Well I had two big events I hosted (I will post pictures as soon as I get them), running from here to there. NOW I am here :) Sorry for the unusually long delay, but I'm BACK!!!
Hair Update:

I have been using the Kimmay-Tube Leave In. Which has really stretched the Knot Today, so happy about that! Also I can see that my hair likes it, especially when I refresh my hair in the middle of the week, it bounces right back! What I have learned though is that I need to cover my hair thoroughly with the mixture but not overdue it. This leave in does not set my hair in a style, I still need an additional product/s to set my hair.

I'm still washing my hair once a week. I have been shampooing my hair more then I use too. Now its every other week if not every week. I'm shampooing with the same bottle of Organix Shampoo heavily diluted. Can you believe I am still on the same bottle. I'm telling you this is the best, long lasting shampoo I have ever had, and it was FREE. Definitely a keeper for me. I have been deep conditioning every week, protein treatment every other week (with Mayo, Honey Egg). Protective styles have been my friend last couple of weeks, though I have been doing a lot of Twist and Curls. I finally mastered the Twist out which is exciting!!! So I have many new do's to add to the LookBook!

I have been trying some new products including the products from the Product Swap. I will definitely post my hair reactions, and results. I'm looking to do a couple more Product Swaps, if any one is interested. Also I would love for people to show their hair reactions and results!

Tomorrow would be my length check day....but I have to post pone it. I will be going to the BEACH so there is NO WAY I am going to do all that work for it to just get messed up. So I will stretch my hair so you can see how long it is, or straighten a couple of sections. Summer is a very difficult time for me to keep my hair straight. If I go through all the work to get it straight I expect it to stay straight. So I won't be straightening my hair until the 2nd week in September, for the Soiree :).

Hope all is well!
