HELLOFRESH IS THE ULTIMATE DINNER HACK

The Ultimate Dinner Hack: HelloFresh

This post is sponsored by HelloFresh, but all opinions are mine. We truly love this service!

As parents of 2 under 4, and the owners of a successful social media business – Dave and I are super busy each day. Cooking dinner is usually the last thing on my mind at the end of the night – and that’s because we subscribe to HelloFresh. I don’t think about what’s for dinner because, first of all – I’m too busy to think about it but also because I don’t have to! HelloFresh’s fun and easy to make recipes will change the way you feel about cooking.

HelloFresh’s menu is constantly changing so you always have new dishes to choose from each week. What I love most, is that the recipes take around 30 minutes to make, so you aren’t spending all night in the kitchen.

The recipes come with super clear, step-by-step instructions with pictures, too! Gracie loves helping me make dinner because she actually can read the recipe with the photos!

Another awesome perk about HelloFresh is that the ingredients are all pre-measured. So you only use what you need and there isn’t any waste! This also makes the clean up like 200 times easier. We always keep the HelloFresh bag on the counter and throw in all the scraps right there. It’s super convenient.

PANTENE INTENSE RESCUE SHOTS // THE QUICKEST WAY TO REPAIR HAIR

Pantene's Rescue Shots // The quickest way to repaired hair! www.gracefulmommy.com
 
Living in South Florida is amazing! However, it does a bit of damage to my hair. I am constantly swimming with the kids and that definitely takes a toll on my hair. It’s also been a while since I got my hair colored or cut, so basically my hair needs help. I started researching something to help my color-treated, rough, and dull hair and I found the perfect solution. Have you guys heard of these?! The Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots are amazing.

Okay, so I don’t know about you, but I tried a few hair masks and honestly they didn’t work well for me. The thought of keeping my hair tied up for a day “soaking” in stuff was not cool. That’s why I love these Intense Rescue Shots. Because you leave in for 30 seconds and rinse for 30 seconds, but it still works wonders. These just hit the shelves in January of this year and they are Pantene’s most potent repair product yet! The idea for these actually came from a Brazil secret! The single dose-tube contains a deeply absorbing blend of Pro-Vitamin B5, strengthening lipids and natural glycerin that targets the damaged areas to give hair the flexibility and resilience it needs to endure styling and environmental stresses.

I decided to try these for myself and see if they really worked! And wow, I was blown away. The damage to my hair was NOTICEABLY repaired – it honestly felt like I had just gotten done at the salon. I actually put a little more focus on my ends of my hair with the product so my ends were more resilient and strengthened and it really worked.

The best thing was that my hair was so soft and smooth that I didn’t even need to style it after I blew-dry it. It laid so perfectly.

Okay, so here’s exactly how you use it:
1 // Wash your hair with a Shampoo – I really like Pantene’s Sheer Volume Shampoo.

2// Use Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots once a week instead of your normal conditioner.

3// While in-shower, apply generously to fully saturate hair, root-to-tip.
 
4// Consider where your hair sees the most damage and be sure to target that area.The product was formulated to prevent overdosing so unlike other hair treatments, no need to hold back! It is single use!
 
5// Leave in for 30 seconds
 
6// Rinse for 30 seconds (don’t over-rinse!)
I will definitely be incorporating Pantene Pro-V Intense Rescue Shots into my routine because I loved the way it made my hair feel. I also think these will be perfect to use after a day in the pool or at the beach!

Holiday Gift Guide 2017 || FOR BABY

Holiday Gift Guide For Baby 2017 - Great list of items perfect for Baby's First Year

We have been busy getting ready for baby #2 – who happens to be due Christmas Day! So this is kind of a combo Baby Registry + Christmas List for baby! These are some of our favorite items + must haves for baby’s first year. A Holiday Gift Guide for Baby:

Holiday Gift Guide For Baby 2017 - Great list of items perfect for Baby's First Year

1+ Dockatot // I did not have a Dockatot when Gracie was a baby, but I cannot wait to try one this time around! I’ve only heard great things about this product!

2+ Newton Mattress // We are so excited about this mattress for Donovan! It’s a mattress that allows air to flow freely through it, as the middle is made of 90% free air! You can actually WASH it, too!

3+ Hatch Baby // We LOVE the Hatch Baby Rest sound machine. It hooks up to an app on your phone so you can easily adjust sound and lighting right from your phone. The lights can change colors + you can set timers! White noise is a must for baby’s first year – and this is the best sound machine out there! Read my review here.

4+ Zooby Car Monitor // This baby monitor rocks! The camera is actually inside the stuffed animal. It hooks on the headrest of the car so that you can see baby in the car without turning around. You just look at the screen on your dashboard that it comes with! Genius! + way better than those car mirrors. Plus, you can bring it inside or when you travel!

5+ Delta Crib // We love this classic white crib from Delta. We just got ours + still have to build it, but the reviews are awesome!

6+ Pacifier clip // We love the Loved By Sophia Claire’s leather braided pacifier clips. Perfect for keeping baby’s pacifier close by + off the ground. These are so great to stock up on!

7+ Smart Noggin Toys // I just found out about these amazing toys and they are a MUST-HAVE for baby’s first year. Each of their toys encourages baby’s early milestones (even from birth!) and guides parents through activities that promote healthy brain development!

8+ Baby Bullet // This thing is genius! You can make + store fresh and healthy food for baby so quickly! I loved making Gracie’s food + I can’t wait to make Donovan’s food when he’s big enough!

9+ Como Tomo Bottles // I plan on breastfeeding baby #2, but it’s always great to have bottles on hand. We plan on stocking up on these Como Tomo bottles because they prevent colic + mimic breastfeeding!

10+ Cresent Womb // This baby hammock looks awesome! I plan on getting one for the new baby. It supposedly reduces factors associated with SIDS + creates a safe sleep environment.
