My Experience With Foligain

Ever had a bad hair day? Or even bad hair month or year? That’s what it feels like when you have thinning hair. 
I’ve always had extremely long and fine hair, but over the years certain areas have thinned so much that you can see my scalp, especially if my hair is worn up and away from my face. 
I know it’s mostly genetics but also partly many years of having pulled my hair back tightly in a ballet bun. I’m also sure having long hair for my entire life has put more stress on my scalp when my hair is pulled up. Taking into account all these factors together and you have a perfect storm for thinning hair.
I feel like thinning hair is something most women deal with at some point in their lives, but I don’t feel like anyone really talks about it. I’ve never really found a solution for the areas of my hair that are thinning except for putting a little bronzer there to hopefully cover it up a bit. When I heard about Foligain’s Triple Action System for Women I knew I had to give it a try!
These are the main areas of thinning that I have. It makes it very difficult to wear my hair up because it always ends up looking patchy. 
This is honestly one of the reasons why you’ll see me with a headband on most of the time when my hair is pulled up. I began using the Foligain system exclusively at the end of May. 

It’s been six weeks total now and I feel like I can honestly tell a difference in the fullness and body of my hair!

The steps are very easy! 3-5 times a week you wash your hair with the system. It begins with the Triple Action Shampoo which you massage into your scalp and then let sit for a few minutes to soak in. 
It is followed with the Triple Action Conditioner. Lather it into your hair. Both of the products smell amazing and don’t leave any residue. They contain ingredients that are great for hair like biotin, Jojoba Oil, and Trioxidil Complex. 
The final step is four sprays to the scalp of the Foligain Triple Action Targeted Formula; massage it into the scalp. It can be rinsed out after four hours or left on indefinitely!
After the serum, I like to use the Foligain Hair & Scalp Roller to help with the massage process. It helps circulate blood to the scalp and also helps with removal of dead skin and increases the effectiveness + absorption of the solution. 
I truly cannot believe how much stronger and more full my hair feels after just six weeks of using this system! I’m so impressed and can’t wait to see where my hair is in another six weeks. 
These products are extremely affordable and are available at www.foligain.com, www.amazon.com, www.shoplet.com, and H-E-B Stores. Questions about Foligain? Leave me a comment and I’ll be glad to answer!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: My Picks

It’s here y’all! This year I’ve narrowed it down to the items I absolutely love and think will be gone quickly. Feel free to browse and shop anything you like through liketoknow.it – I’ll be updating frequently throughout the sale. I appreciate you shopping my links and keeping this little blog of mine going! Here are some of my favorites:

sweaters

Here are some of my favorite sweater picks! I already own the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan in Black (pictured above in grey) and it’s hands down one of the most amazing pieces I’ve ever felt. The most soft thing on the planet! I also own a few of the Leith Cardigans from years past (pictured in pink on the second row, middle) and they’re definitely staple pieces of mine. This year I’m really digging anything leopard or pink!

pants

These are my favorite bottoms from the sale. I already have the Alo Moto Leggings and they’re great! I get a small in them. I swear by Articles of Society pants because they’re skinny jeans fit like a glove! Of course I’m loving the leopard joggers for only $30. I’ve also had my eye on the coated skinnies by BlankNYC since my old ones are worn smooth out.

 

shoes

The shoes to me had the best selection that I’ve ever seen. I already own the grey Lucky Booties and they’re super cute but fair warning: they’re not super comfy because the heel is a lot higher than it looks. If I did’t already have snakeskin booties I’d definitely snag these. I’m loving all the sneaker choices! The pairs of Nikes are such a steal and the leopard wedge sneakers are waterproof. The black Steve Madden over the knee boots have been number one on my list because I think they’ll actually stay up on my legs without falling!

 

homeandbeauty

I always get an Antica Farmcista Prosecco Diffuser every year. My mother in law introduced me to this brand and I can’t get enough. The La Mer and Drybar sets are a fabulous deal that I’ve purchased in years past. You can’t go wrong with a set of Nest hand soaps. Both of the throws come highly recommended with the Kennebunk one for only $25 while the Barefoot Dreams blanket is splurge at a little over $100. The Barefoot Dreams blanket is definitely on my Christmas wishlist!

 

I told y’all I would keep it to the items I seriously love! Now, obviously I didn’t purchase all of these items but once I get the ones that I did order I’ll do a try on and let you know what I’m keeping! Head to the liketoknow.it app to shop any items you like in my post. Thanks for all the support y’all! Happy Shopping!

Love,

Megan

June Best Sellers

I cannot believe June is almost over y’all! Where has this year gone?! Today, I’m sharing my best sellers for this month on the liketoknow.it app! You can shop each of these items easily with the link below each photo.

The two piece set is SO good for $24. I’m wearing a small and hit it with a steamer before I wore it. The top runs a little big if you are smaller chested but I safety pinned it to make it work.

https://rstyle.me/n/dm4nuvch37p

This swimsuit is so comfortable and it would be perfect for 4th of July. I’m wearing a small and it runs true to size. It’s $27 and the quality is incredible.

https://rstyle.me/n/dm9q5nch37p

The comfiest summer sundress. I got a medium for length but would’ve been fine with a small. The straps are adjustable and it is lined underneath. These wedges have also been extremely popular this month for only $24. True to size, I’m wearing my usual 6.5 in the gray.

https://rstyle.me/n/dnjzqkch37p

https://rstyle.me/n/dkszt9ch37p

This romper feels like pajamas! Love the pockets and wearing a small. The waist is adjustable and it’s a good length even for someone like myself with longer legs.

https://rstyle.me/n/dnjzrkch37p

I love the fit of this suit. I’m wearing a medium and it is so flattering! Not too cheeky or high cut. I was afraid the underwire in the top would be uncomfortable but I’ve worn it all day at the lake it wasn’t at all.

https://rstyle.me/n/dm36efch37p

Last but not least, this stunner! Wearing a small and only $28. I cannot believe this dress. The quality is unreal. It comes in many colors and my eye is on lavender next.

All of this month’s best sellers are available via Amazon and most are Prime shipping. Have fun shopping y’all!

Aspen Travel Guide

Today, I’m highlighting what to see and do in Aspen, Colorado. We went in the off-season which means it wasn’t ski season or summer peak season. It’s called off-season because the weather can often be unpredictable. More about that in a moment.

Just a few days before this photo was taken it was in the 70s in Aspen. It started snowing the first evening we were there. It ended up snowing so much that they opened the skiing back up through June. We definitely were not prepared clothing wise.

HOW TO GET THERE:

We flew into Denver and got on a short 20 minute flight to Aspen. The runway is extremely short and only a few pilots are certified to fly into here. We got to Aspen above the airport and had a mechanical issue and had to go back. Apparently this happens a lot because of weather or winds that the plane can’t land and gets rerouted. Just keep this in mind if you fly in. We were supposed to arrive Thursday at 7 pm and did’t arrive until Friday at 9 am which was fine for us because we didn’t have a hotel to cancel or plans set in stone. The drive from Denver is 4 hours if that is something you’d like to opt for but the roads can be difficult at times.

WHERE TO STAY:

We stayed at a family member’s place but if we hadn’t done that I would recommend using http://www.airbnb.com or http://www.vrbo.com to find a condo rental. The St. Regis Hotel is another great option although can be pricey depending on the season you choose.

HOW TO GET AROUND:

We took a taxi from the airport and scheduled a car to pick us up for our departure. We walked everywhere we went. Ubers are almost nonexistent in the office season. Bike rentals are also available. If you stay in downtown you won’t need a vehicle.

WHAT TO DO:

Visit Maroon Bells. Unfortunately, there was an avalanche the week we traveled to Aspen on the road going out to Maroon Bells so it was only accessible by bicycle and you’d have to carry your bike hundreds of yards over the snow mass. We decided against that since we’re not in that great of shape. I highly advising calling the local park rangers before you visit to see current conditions. If I had done this before the day we actually wanted to visit I’d have known we couldn’t. That was a huge bummer but honestly all on me since I didn’t check before we got into town. During the summer you can actually take a bus out t

Visit shops and museums in downtown Aspen. There are so many places to explore and are an easy walk. The plus about off-season? You have virtually the entire town to yourself.

See a show at Belly Up. We saw Boombox perform one night. The reserved tickets allow you to sit in assigned seats and a waitress will come and serve you food and drinks. This is such a cool venue because literally every famous person has performed here. Their pictures are all over the walls and the date they performed.

WHERE TO EAT AND DRINK:

*Matsuhisa Sushi was good! We made reservations via the Open Table app before and shared everything we ordered.

*HOPS Culture was a lunch stop one day. They have tons of local beers on tap and great bar food. The wait staff here was very nice and enjoyable to visit with!

*Jimmy’s Bar & Restaurant was a stop one evening for crab cakes and drinks before dinner. We sat in the front part in the bar area. Great view of the mountain! (Pictured a few photos above with the drink)

*Mi Chola was dinner one night. Great Mexican food and Prickly Pear Margarita’s!

*Ryno’s Pub & Pizzeria was recommended by a local. We had lunch here one day and played games in the arcade. A fun place to hang out and eat. They do pizza by the slice here and it’s huge!

*Silver City is probably our favorite bar in the town. We accidentally happened upon it too! We were leaving the concert and heard country music playing from underground and discovered it. There’s pool tables in the back and country vibes all around. We actually came here two nights because we liked it so much!

*St. Regis Hotel Bar for appetizers and drinks. It has the coziest ski lodge vibes with couches and fireplaces everywhere! The boys enjoyed an old fashioned while the gals sipped on St. Germain Spritzers. Such a nice place to relax and keep warm while it continued to snow outside!

Hope you got some great ideas for your upcoming Aspen trip! Questions about anything we did? Feel free to leave a comment so I can answer! Safe travels!

Amazon Swimsuit + Coverup Roundup

Sharing all my favorites from Amazon today! You can shop all these items via www.liketoknow.it/whenpigsflyblog This palm coverup is under $20 and I’ve worn it so many times since I got it last year.

This scalloped suit comes in a couple of colors! I’m wearing a medium but it’s plenty stretchy and I could’ve done the small as well.

My hat isn’t Amazon but it’s definitely worth $45 since I’ve worn it SO many times. Linking a similar one for $15. My cover up is a couple of years old but I found the same one for $13 except its white. https://rstyle.me/+U9SeebOBQD4xd8pA87aOqQ

Snakeskin is everything right now and I’m loving this for $20. I’m wearing a small.

 

This one piece is so cute as a body suit or swimsuit. I got the medium since I have a long torso but the straps are adjustable.

This was my top selling item of April. I’m in a medium and this two piece is only $15.

Another cover up that’s a few years old but still available for $13! https://rstyle.me/+r-aZRIam0jSFwE5vhpW1yw

 

Love this set and it comes in a ton of different colors and patterns. Sunglasses are also available via Amazon.

Venice Travel Guide

Venice was our final stop on our trip to Italy. It’s truly a city unlike any other.

HOW TO GET AROUND:

Arriving by train will put you right where the Vaporetto (Water Taxi) stop. We bought an unlimited ticket for our time there. Fortunately most of Venice is extremely walkable and we did not need to use it much. Schedule and tickets here.

WHERE TO EAT: 

We had dinner one evening outside on the canal at Trattoria da Roberto. I had the delicious lobster pasta shown above in the photo. Our other favorite dining experience was actually a to-go lunch. Baci and Pasta opens at noon and you should be there prior to that to insure a spot close to the front of the line. He has pastas of the day that change but are all delicious. I had a ravioli in butter and sage sauce and a mini bottle of prosecco for under $10 USD. It’s one man cooking and serving which makes it a truly local experience. I highly recommend.

WHAT TO DO:

Drink a bellini! No, but seriously you should. They were created here originally and they are available in every restaurant and gift shop. We visited Doges Palace and it was unbelievable. The history and architecture must be seen in person to truly be appreciated. After our visit we explored St. Mark’s Square which is full of restaurants, shops, and the best people watching. We also toured Teatro La Fenice which is the opera house. It has been burned down and rebuilt several times. Unfortunately the opera was not in session when we were there. If you are able I would get tickets to a show and attend in this gorgeous theatre.

DAY TRIP TO BURANO ISLAND:

We took the vaporetto to Burano Island which about a 45 minute trip each way. It is a gorgeous and colorful town. We walked around exploring for awhile and had Nutella crepes at a local shop that were delicious. One of Burano’s biggest claims to fame is their lace. There is even a Lace Museum. I highly suggest going as early as possible because it does get crowded later in the day.

 

WHERE TO STAY:

We stayed at Hotel Rio and the location was perfect for sightseeing and close to many great restaurants. They will also hold your luggage on your check out day until you leave Venice. I highly recommend for safe, clean, and A/C included rooms!

 

Our trip to Venice was two days and I felt like that was plenty of time. The only thing we didn’t do was a gondola ride but it was so hot that we decided against it. Have you been to Venice? What was your favorite part? Leave me a comment and let me know!
