RenPure saves my Curls

Having curly hair is a blessing and a curse, as the old saying goes. Finding products that don't leave your hair feeling too oily or crunchy is one of the reasons our spiraly locks are tough to deal with.
This Ren Pure curl collection has saved my life. I feel that my curls are more manageable, still soft, and more bouncy. The leave in conditioner provides the moisture I need (I dye my hair quite a bit), and the gel holds my style in place. I have found this product at TJ-Maxx, but it can be found at several places, including salons. The best part is that you most likely won't pay over 20 dollars, and each bottle can last awhile. Well, not for me, because my hair is long and impossibly thick, but even using it every day, I can make each container last two weeks.
Ren Pure is not sponsoring me for this post! I just really enjoy their products and want to share with the world!

Finding The Right Cactus

Look at this pretty pink poker! I found her at a local grocery store and instantly fell in love. She is bright and comes with a ceramic bowl that looks a million times better than an old classic indoor pot. She isn't very big, but she is lovely and thriving. At least until I take her home... I'm not sure if I have it in me to adopt and keep her just yet.
Growing and maintaining the health of a cactus can be a real pain. They require a certain amount of water, heat, and sunlight, and you have to make sure you will get it right or you'll have a dead cacti baby on your hands. In 2014, I was huge on buying these pokey little plants, but my cat insisted on eating them. That year I think I owned seven different plants. I managed to completely neglect and forget about one!
However, this year I want to try again. With my husband and I deciding on slowly working our way into gardening and being more self sustainable, I feel this is the right time to start over. Hopefully I will have some success, and be able to share tips and pointers with the world through my blog. So, if you are reading this, which type of cactus is your favorite? Do you have any tips on keeping them alive? Feel free to share in the comments! Also, be prepared for more plant-oriented posts and photos as we put our green thumbs to good use!
