Summer Hair Care Routine with Hair Food



This post is sponsored by Hair Food. All opinions are my own. Thank you for the supporting the brands that make BentleyBlonde possible!

Hi Beauties! 

I hope you all have been staying healthy and safe! We just entered 'phase 2' of our Coronavirus Recovery Plan here in Maryland, and the feeling is surprisingly bittersweet. As thankful as I am that our state is seeing lowering infection rates and beginning to reopen many non-essential businesses, this precious time at home with my family has been a blessing in disguise. I am so thankful for this opportunity to "slow down" and soak in all of these moments together. No crazy schedules or commitments to keep, just long summer days at home with my boys.
During this time at home, I've also rediscovered the importance of self-care. Being a busy wife and mom means sacrificing a lot of "me" time, but the one essential thing I do EVERY single morning is enjoy a shower and wash my hair. When you look good, you feel good .. am I right?! Because I do wash my hair every day, it's extra important that I use products that are sulfate free, color safe and healthy for my hair.

Over the past couple months I've been using a new shampoo and conditioner combo from Hair Food. It's their Tea Tree & Lavender Water Shampoo & Conditioner and guys.. IT'S. SO. GOOD. This combo contains a lightweight recipe that nourishes your hair, while leaving it manageable with body and bounce! All Hair Food products are also free of sulfates, dyes and parabens. Hair Food's mission is simple, feed your hair like you feed your body



My hair looks, feels and smells amazing after using this duo, and I feel good knowing that my hair is getting the nourishment it needs!

Easter Entertaining Table Decor

This post is created in partnership with Christmas Tree Shops andThat!, a brand I love. All opinions are my own.

With the early arrival of warm weather this year, my mind is already on all things spring. I've been daydreaming about planting a new garden, enjoying loads of sunshine, and best of all, celebrating Easter! Today on the blog, I will be sharing our simple and festive Easter table and decor in the dining room. 

You guys know I absolutely love decorating for every season and holiday, so I was beyond excited to team up with Christmas Tree Shops andThat! to give our dining room an Easter makeover! If you've never visited a Christmas Tree Shops location, what are you waiting for? For every season, and every reason - they've got you covered y'all! With an ever-changing assortment of products, every trip is like a treasure hunt, and who doesn't love that?!

 

The store was brimming with the cutest Easter goodies and decor;  egg laden wreaths, rabbit adorned dinnerware and festive figurines were catching my eye at every turn! After way too many bunnies hopped into my cart, I headed home and got started decorating with my new spring goodies.


This year, I decided to go with a muted color palette for Easter by incorporating shades of cream, baby pink, light blue and yellow. A few sweet little bunnies had to make an appearance of course, as well as touches of greenery and speckled eggs to breathe life into the space.


For table settings, I simply couldn't resist these floral bunny plates, wooden bunny napkin rings, eyelet napkins and milkglass-esque goblets. I mean, how cute are they! 


For the centerpiece I used a doughbowl that I already had in storage, and filled it with a gorgeous floral candleholder and eggs I had picked up at Christmas Tree Shops. This was a really affordable option that adds a fun pop of color, and is even pretty at night when the candle is lit!


On my tiered tray, I added this adorable wooden bunny sign, glass bunny figurines and a lively succulent, along with a few wood pieces I already owned. I also attached this lush spring greenery wreath from Christmas Tree Shops' stunning 'Petal and Stone' line to our antique window.



I hope you enjoyed this peek at our Easter table and dining room. Be sure to check out Christmas Tree Shops andThat! for more fun seasonal finds, and share this post with your spring lovin' friends! 




Happy Easter,
Wendy

Our Halloween Decorations with Christmas Tree Shops!


This post is created in partnership with Christmas Tree Shops andThat!, a brand I love. All opinions are my own.
A peek at our Halloween home decor, including neutral halloween mantel, front porch, outdoor halloween decorations, and fall entryway.

Happy Fall Y'all!
Whose ready for the spookiest time of the year?
I must admit, this is my first year decorating for Halloween. I just couldn't pass up all of the awesome decor at our local Christmas Tree Shops! Halloween is also our 3 year old's favorite holiday, so of course he was thrilled to see the new spooky-scapes on our mantel and front porch.



Have you ever shopped at a Christmas Tree Shops or andThat! store? They are like a treasure trove of affordable goodies! They always have an amazing assortment of seasonal decor, specialty foods, household and beauty products, furniture, and SO much more! Take a peek at some of the fabulous Halloween decor I spotted in-store...








After browsing through endless aisles of ghoulish goodies, I felt inspired to create a black/white themed mantel and a more traditional orange themed front porch.



I loved the antique feel of this light-up Poison sign, how spooky are those glowing skull eyes?! 





From posing skeletons to pumpkin luminaries, Christmas Tree Shops definitely has the coolest selection of candle holders for Halloween! I just couldn't pass up the creepy spider and skeleton; I added glittery black tea lights inside of each, they flicker beautifully! Glass poison bottles, and stacks of antique books add to the spooky feel. For added height, 2 wrought iron holders with LED candles balance out the mantel.



This fun Halloween bunting is the perfect touch!


To add interest at the base of the fireplace, I hung a glittery BOO sign from the ladder, tucked a spider pillow into the basket and leaned a cinnamon broomstick against the hearth- it makes the entire room smell delicious!



And because it wouldn't be Halloween without a little DIY, I cut these fun bats out of construction paper and placed them in staggering flight above the mantel.
I think it turned out Boo-tiful ;) how about you?


Our front porch is ready for trick-or-treaters thanks to a lush pumpkin wreath, Hello Pumpkin welcome mat, the cutest boo pillow and pumpkin patch sign. I'm loving the pop of traditional orange color in this outdoor space!



Of course, the front of our halloween home wouldn't be complete without this fun hocus pocus inspired stake sign!



This same decor can also transition into the entryway! I love versatile pieces!


I hope you enjoyed this spooky house tour of our Halloween home decor. Be sure to check out Christmas Tree Shops andThat! for more fun seasonal finds, and share this post with your halloween loving friends!
