5 Eyeliners and a Gloss

#OOTD Rainy Plaid

It's officially fall and my favorite time of year. Today I am sharing an old #OOTD post that I shared a few years ago, to help inspire those feelings of fall and to help me get motivated to do my wardrobe changeover that I do every season. It's time to bring out the cozy flannels, warm sweaters and boots!

Update Your Hair For Summer - While Fighting the 5 Signs of Aging

With summer just around the corner I found myself a little restless with my hair color, as tends to happen every time that the season changes. There is just something about a brand new season that always amps me up for some change, very similar to what happens with my wardrobe as one season turns into another.  

Not that I'm into drastic changes when it comes to my hair color choices - I tend to stay in the brown and black arena for the most part year-round. But I did know that I wanted to go a bit lighter than what I currently had, dark brown - almost black. And I knew that I wanted to continue using the brand that I discovered just a few months ago, Zotos AGEbeautiful Liqui-Crème Anti-Aging Haircolor.

This is what my hair looked like before coloring it, it was practically black. Zotos AGEbeautiful Liqui-Crème is a multi-tasker, not only does it give me a head full of fresh, rich color, it also helps me fight the 5 signs of aging in hair. 

As we age, our hair experiences 5 signs of aging. It loses volume, manageability, color, moisture and shine. AGEbeautiful anti-aging haircolor is the first haircolor developed to fight all 5 signs of aging in your hair. AGEbeautiful Liqui-Crème contains melanin, keratin peptide, silk protein and a patented conditioning technology to replenish hair with the essential components that are lost with aging. The unique formula penetrates deeply and absorbs quickly to deliver beautiful, rich color. Hair feels instantly fuller, silkier and radiates with shine. It gives you 100% gray coverage and is sold exclusively at Sally Beauty

Shopping for Zotos AGEbeautiful Liqui-Crème is different than shopping for a regular box of color. When using this product, you are shopping like a pro hairstylist and will need to ensure you buy everything you will need for the process. 

- Go to your local Sally Beauty store and go to the Zotos AGEbeautiful Liqui-Crème section. Pick the shade that is right for you. Take advantage of the current promotion to get the developer for FREE! Keep reading for more details.

- Once you pick your shade, purchase your developer. 99% of the time 20 volume is the correct developer. Note: Mixing ratio for most of the shades is 1 to 1; meaning for every ounce of color you need an ounce of developer. 

Decide how you want to apply – in an applicator bottle or a bowl and brush and purchase those items. These are a one-time investment that you can use over and over again. Don’t forget gloves too! 

Now I'll show you how easy it is to use AGEbeautiful Liqui-Crème - and how convenient it is to be able to do your own hair from the comfort of home, in your own time. 

  • Put on an old t-shirt that can get stained.
  • Measure the developer first, then add the color

  • Mix with the brush your purchased until both products are completely combined.

  • Put on gloves and try avoid all skin contact. 
  • Apply conditioner or Vaseline around your hairline/forehead and on tops of ears to prevent color staining.

  • Apply to hair for recommended time - I separate my hair into two sections to make application easier. 
  • Rinse, shampoo, dry and style as per usual .

This is how my hair ended up after the new color, the shade I picked out, 6G Light Golden Brown, provided my hair that bit of lightness I was looking for in my hair. I started off with a pretty dark color so I knew that it would not turn out a light brown but this is exactly what I was looking for.

And because AGEbeautiful Liqui-Crème helps fight the 5 signs of aging (volume, manageability, color, moisture and shine) in hair, I know I've done well in picking out this color for my hair.

Why We Took the Purina ONE® 28-Day Challenge

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PurinaONEVisibleDifferences #CollectiveBias  

As multiple-pet parents, we take every step to ensure that all of our pets are healthy and happy. Without a doubt, one of the things that makes them happiest is when it's time to eat. But because we have so many pets, we don't look at their daily bowl of food as just something they can quickly eat to get full, we look at that bowl of food as nutrition that will help them all stay as healthy and happy as possible. 

That's why I really wanted to take the Purina ONE 28-Day Challenge. Today I am sharing our results and why I invite you to do the same. Just register for the challenge here and shop by going to Walmart or clicking the photo above!

I shopped in-store for my bag of Purina ONE® Indoor Advantage. I love how convenient it was to shop for this as I tend to stop into Walmart at least a few times a week after work. So the price and convenience of switching to Purina ONE® are definitely there for us.

Next, it was time to take the bag of Purina ONE® Indoor Advantage home to Girl Fluffy to see if she would enjoy it. Mostly, cats are pretty easy to switch over to a new food, as long as you do it gradually. But there has been a time or two where I got them a new food that they sniffed and walked away from. 

Would Purina ONE® Indoor Advantage be Girl Fluffy approved? It was a definite yes. From the first bowls that had a little bit of her old food mixed in, to her very first full bowl of only Purina ONE® Indoor Advantage, there was definite excitement and gusto to eat. 

If you have pets then you know that happiness that comes with seeing them enjoy their food. Its just like when you have kids and have suddenly come upon something they love to eat. Watching that little face dig into her bowl of food so happily each day has made me feel like I am doing a good job at providing. 

Of course, it is very important that our pets love their food because if they don't then they won't eat it. But again, the food we feed our cats has to be more than delicious, it has to be nutritious and full of good things for them. 

Why was taking the Purina ONE 28-Day Challenge so important and what did I expect to see in those 28 days?

Day 1: More excitement around mealtime!
Day 7: Extra Energy!
Day 14: High Digestibility!
Day 21: Sparkling eyes, healthy skin and a radiant coat.
Day 24: Strong immune system
Day 28: Strong teeth, healthy gums, heart, and joints!

While some of the changes are not those that I can see visibly, I can definitely attest to quite a few of them.

Great taste: From day one she has loved every bowl of Purina ONE.
Highly digestible: We've had no tummy troubles or issues since switching.
Healthy skin and coat: Girl Fluffy's coat is long and healthy which means she gets extra brushings, which are her favorite thing in the world, after eating of course. 
Healthy Energy: Girl Fluffy lost most of her kitten energy after getting fixed. This is probably what changes most after cats become adults, but it's important to their health to get their daily exercise in and I have definitely seen a more spirited side of her these past weeks. 


Take your pet from “good” to “great”! With Purina ONE®, you could see visible differences in just 28 days—like strong teeth, vibrant energy, sparkling eyes, and a radiant coat.
