Healthy Hair Habits with Hair Food

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Hair Food. The opinions and text are all mine.

I have been all about healthy habits lately, especially when it comes to my beauty routine! It’s so easy to get off track, especially in the spring when life tends to get a bit busier. It’s so important to have a healthy haircare routine, and I thought I would share a few general guidelines I’ve been following to ensure my hair stays strong and healthy.

Hair Food


Not all hair products are created equal, which is why we need to pay attention to the ingredients in these products before exposing our hair to them. One of my new favorite haircare brands that uses natural ingredients is Hair Food! Their Nourishing Collection is one major reason why my hair has been so healthy lately.

Hair Food’s Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner with Coconut Milk and Chai Spice is full of nourishing ingredients that leave my hair softer and shinier than ever! It’s free of parabens, sulfates, and dyes (aka: all the bad things that will wreak havoc on your hair). The coconut scent is AMAZING and not overpowering like some scented shampoos and conditioners. Absolutely perfect for spring and summer!


I know I have mentioned this on other beauty posts, but this is such a huge reason that my hair stays healthy. I used to blow dry my hair every other day, and as a result I constantly had dry and brittle hair. There’s only so much your hair can take, and as soon as I started easing up on the heat styling my hair health started to take a turn for the better. My hair is soft, shiny, and strong, and I’m able to grow it out longer now that the breakage is under control.

This one is hard for me to stick to for some reason, but I am starting to take it more seriously. I used to go years without a haircut because I desperately wanted my hair to grow longer. Turns out I was sabotaging myself!  Getting a trim every 6 months or so is important to prevent split ends from spreading up the hair shaft. Keeping your ends in tip-top shape means hair will be overall stronger and fuller, leading to the long luscious locks you’ve always wanted.


Hair Food Shampoo and Conditioner goes a long way in providing nourishment, but we also need to think about the actual food we are putting into our bodies. In reality, all food is hair food because your diet can affect the health of your hair. It’s important to eat lots of nutrient-rich foods, including foods high in Protein, Iron, Vitamin C, and Antioxidants. Your hair will thank you!

If you want to kick start your own healthy hair habits this spring, definitely grab some Hair Food Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner at your local Walmart. Let me know what you think after trying it!

It’s been a little quiet here lately, but I’ve been busy working on some fun projects that I’m hoping to incorporate into the blog! I’ve been wanting to get into floral photography, so I headed out to The Dallas Arboretum to capture some of their new spring blooms. The tulips and daffodils did not disappoint!

If you didn’t already know, Garrett and I also have a photography website with our portfolio of images we’ve taken over the years. We will be adding more soon, along with some fun film projects we’ve been working on. If you’re interested in photography, head over to GTDennington and check it out!

Pretty Spring Nail Colors from Londontown

If ever there was a nail polish brand that was made for me, Londontown is IT! As a self-proclaimed Anglophile, I am obsessed with everything related to England (as seen here and here). The moment I learned about Londontown and saw all of their cute nail color names, I knew I had to try them out! Their new spring nail colors are so dreamy, and I am so excited to share them with you! Luckily, their colors aren’t just gorgeous. They are super high quality and long-lasting as well.

Londontown Spring Nail Colors


A delicate, subtle pink, Afternoon Tea is probably my favorite spring nail color from Londontown. It reminds me of a color that Meghan Markle would wear. Perfectly royal, yet sweet and springy!


I always think of peach as the ultimate pastel spring color, and Peach Please is the perfect shade! It’s not overly orange like some peach nail colors. Just the right amount!

Londontown Spring Nail Colors          Londontown Spring Nail Colors


If you’re looking for a slightly brighter pop of pink than Afternoon Tea, Lemonade Pop is the one to get. Talk about the perfect spring nail color for Easter!


Is pink not really your thing? (can’t relate) Dainty Daze is the prettiest shade of periwinkle blue I’ve ever seen! I very rarely wear blue nail polish, but this greyish-blue shade is becoming a new favorite of mine.

Londontown Spring Nail Colors          Londontown Spring Nail Colors

Aside from Londontown’s beautiful nail colors and high quality formulas, they are also vegan, and cruelty-free. Their nail polishes are 9-Free, meaning they are free from toxic ingredients like formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate.

One other major thing that stands out for me is their thick brushes. There’s nothing worse that applying nail polish with a thin brush that doesn’t hold product well and creates a streaky finish. Londontown’s brushes are the best I’ve used in all my years of painting my nails. Glides on smoothly and perfectly every time!

The shade I have been wearing most recently is Peach Please (seen in the photo below). It gets me so excited for warm, spring days!

I know you guys will LOVE these spring nail colors as much as I do, and Londontown was kind enough to give TPP readers a discount code to use on future purchases! Use code “polishedposy” for 25% off at Londontown, and be sure to let me know which shades you pick up!

Nurture Your Hair and Body with the Waterpik Hair Wand

This post is sponsored by on behalf of Waterpik. As always, all opinions are my own.

I know I can’t be the only one out there that gets frustrated with the whole hair washing routine. It’s pretty much the same experience every time, and goes a little something like this. Get in the shower. Lather up with shampoo and conditioner. Struggle to get all the shampoo and conditioner out. Get out of the shower with a tangled mess and most likely a little bit of soap still lingering. Guess what? It doesn’t have to be that way! Babbleboxx sent over the Waterpik Hair Wand Spa System for me to try out and let me tell you, it is a total game changer!

Waterpik Hair Wand


When I am looking into a new gadget or device, one of my first thoughts is how much trouble it will be to get up and running. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to install the Waterpik Hair Wand and how quickly my shower experience was transformed. I just had to follow a few simple steps and it was ready to go in less than 5 minutes.

Waterpik Hair Wand


One of the most annoying parts about taking a shower is the process of rinsing all the shampoo and conditioner out. I have a lot of hair, so this is never an easy task! On top of that, my hair tangles VERY easily when I wash it. With the Waterpik Hair Wand‘s PowerComb feature, the water streams comb my hair as it rinses while also revitalizing my scalp. This means less tangles and less fuss! It also rinses more thoroughly than your typical shower head, leaving behind super clean and tangle-free hair ready to be styled. Exactly how it should be after a shower, right?


Regular use of the Waterpik Hair Wand will contribute to the overall health of your hair, leaving it more vibrant and luminous than ever. Aside from nurturing your hair, it will also provide therapeutic benefits to your body. You know those days when you come home and everything hurts? I have those days every once in a while. There’s nothing like hopping in a hot shower and letting the Hair Wand take over. I just aim the stream on my neck and back muscles and the relief is almost immediate. In fact, a recent study showed that 90% of users experienced muscle tension release within minutes. The PowerPulse Massage setting is such a soothing way to end the day!

You can customize your shower experience with the various different streams and modes that the Waterpik Hair Wand provides. There are 3 different wand streams and 9 different shower head modes to choose from, depending on your preference and needs at the moment. Since the shower head and hair wand are all one system, you can easily switch back and forth from the shower head to the hair wand throughout your shower.

Get Red Carpet Ready With These Beauty Essentials

This post is sponsored by As always, all opinions are my own.

Are you ready for the Oscars this Sunday? Although you are probably like me and won’t be walking any red carpets this weekend, that doesn’t mean you can’t get red carpet ready! These beauty essentials will help you get glam for your next night out, and you could actually WIN all the items in this post! Babbleboxx is giving away their Red Carpet themed box to one lucky winner. Keep reading to learn why I love each of these products and be sure to enter the giveaway here.

Get Red Carpet Ready with these Beauty Essentials


There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get after having a luxurious, relaxing facial treatment! It’s always a good idea to get a facial before a big event because you know your skin will be looking its absolute best. Hand & Stone offers a Glow & Go treatment that will give you a radiant, youthful glow in just 30 minutes! The treatment involves a combination of red LED light therapy and a NuFace microcurrent lift. As a result, new collagen is stimulated and the skin becomes more firm and contoured. It also reduces the puffiness around your eyes, which is always one of my major concerns! The lift maintains 24-72 hours, so this is perfect to get right before a weekend getaway. I’ll be getting my Glow & Go facial next week, and I can’t wait to share my experience with you. Keep an eye out on Instagram to see how it went! Use code “RedCarpet” for 50% off the Red LED upgrade at Hand & Stone through 2/28/19 (valid at participating spas).


A good serum is essential for maintaining a healthy glow, and Dermalogica‘s Biolumin-C Serum is one of the best. It’s packed with Vitamin C, which helps to brighten and firm the skin. With consistent use, it also reduces the appearance of fine lines and unbalanced pigmentation. Sounds too good to be true, but I assure you it’s the real deal! It’s so easy to add into your current skincare routine. Just use morning and night after cleansing and toning (before moisturizing)!


Aside from being obviously adorable with their pretty gold handles, these Moda brushes are so soft and make applying makeup a dream! This is the 7-piece Total Face Flip Kit, which includes 6 brushes (for eyes, face, and lips) plus a super convenient flip case. They work great with both wet and dry products. The high quality fibers apply makeup so smoothly, you are sure to see instant results! I love that they’re easy to travel with, and can be stored or displayed in the case when not in use. Use code “MODAXBABBLE” for 20% off your Moda order (through 3/30/19).

I love (and need) a good moisturizer for my hands, and The Gold Q Restoration Hand Cream has officially become one of my beauty essentials! My skin gets so dry in the winter, and this hemp-infused hand cream absolutely brings it back to life. It exfoliates and nourishes my skin, while also preventing the appearance of unsightly veins. Let’s not forget that one of the first places we start to show our age is our hands. I have made it a priority to apply hand cream twice a day, and I can definitely tell a difference in how my hands look and feel!


Another one of my beauty essentials from The Gold Q is their Topical Relief Cream. This is such a great all over moisturizer that immediately makes your skin feel revived and hydrated. Like the Restoration Hand Cream, it’s hemp-infused, plant-based, and paraben-free. If you’ve been eager to try out hemp skin care and cosmetics, The Gold Q is definitely the brand to go with! Use code “GOODASGOLD20” for 20% off your first purchase at The Gold Q (through 3/25/19).

When it comes to getting all glammed up, the first thing that comes to mind is LASHES! I don’t have naturally lush lashes, so I am thankful for serums like GrandeLASH-MD that help me grow longer, thicker lashes. The total treatment time is three months, but you’ll start seeing results in just 4-6 weeks! Plus, it’s ophthamologist approved and safe to use with contacts and lash extensions.


You can’t get fully glammed up without lipstick! I absolutely love the GrandeLIPS Plumping Liquid Lipstick because it does more than just add color. It actually plumps my lips and keeps them hydrated (unlike some liquid lipsticks that are drying). It applies so effortlessly, and I always see instant results! The shade I’m wearing here is the “Semi-Matte Strawberry Rhubarb”. Use code “BABBLE10” for 10% off your Grande Cosmetics order.


I am always on the look out for a nail polish that actually improves the health of my nails. Perfect Formula‘s Gel Coat Colors are not only gorgeous, but they also strengthen, seal, and protect your nails! I’ve always struggled with maintaining healthy nails, and wearing this gel coat has actually helped prevent my nails from splitting. The shade I’m wearing here is “Elegant” (also pictured above is “Dazzle”). Although it is a gel coat, it can easily be removed with any nail polish remover. Use code “redcarpet” for 20% off your Perfect Formula purchase through 3/31/19.
