#curlygirlmethod update: it’s been a struggle. I think the Giovanni isn’t moisturizing enough. So I’m still thinning about what to try next. While I do get good ringlets (photo n.1), it’s still hit or miss volume wise. I used to get more curl and volume near my roots. Instead, it dries fairly flat (photo n.2).
I’ve stopped leaving some of the conditioner in my hair when rinsing. I’m learning I need it completely rinsed out for any leave-ins to do their best work.
Since my hair was shiny but a little limp, I decided to have fun and brushed out alll the S waves, then pinned it back 40s style. Looooove it this way! ( 🤫 I really enjoy brushing my curls out!!)
My aloe gel is nearly gone. So...Thinking of trying Kinky Curly’s curl custard as my next styling product.
Also sometimes I miss the frizzier dryness of pre CG days. It seemed to give my hair some volume. Still trying to figure out how to have moisturized softness+volume. Or am I chasing a 🦄 on that one??

Post workout snuggles in my hand knit (by me) silk and mohair sweater. 😍 .
I am really craving gorgeous things to wear, even during TILT. (Though I save the silk-mohair sweater for after workouts, otherwise I would roast alive 😂) So I have decided I want and need dance tights and leotards for my practice. I’m over athletic wear and want something more feminine and elegant. 💖
Any other ladies else feel this way about athletic wear? Or is it just me?

Sharing birthday love and giggles with my little man 💕
This year I honestly couldn’t think of what I wanted for a gift. Yes, I have a list, mostly practical housewife stuff: some organizing containers, new bedding, a loaf pan, pants (somehow I only have couple pairs of pants to rotate through 🤔), maybe a bottle of perfume or a new tea. And I confess, some anti-aging cream and such. Hehe. :) (my lips are feathering, my eyes crinkling—here’s to aging gracefully!)
But I just couldn’t bring myself to even ask for any of it. It felt selfish, empty, shallow. How asking for a loaf pan and organizers is shallow, idk. But it felt that way. I realized the real reason I didn’t know what to ask for is, my heart is full and I am grateful. Material things are indeed needful, nice, and appreciated. But they simply don’t compare to the long-awaited-hoped-for-prayers-answered blessing of being the wife and mother to my Dearest and Little Man ❤️ God is so good and trustworthy. I am so often humbled to think I have been granted to live my life serving and loving them, especially after so many years of being single and watching with a bit of a heavy heart while others married and had children. Starting married and family life a little later has made it all the richer to me.
That said, my Dearest surprised me big time by gifting me with a day off this weekend, to relax, shop, and be alone. It will feel strange but I am looking forward to a little break as well. 💝

It’s my birthday tomorrow ☺️💕 To celebrate, I’m gifting two @tiltbyoriana streaming memberships💝 Comment below with why you want to try TILT. (Must have valid email; streaming good for one month.)
Maybe you’re a mom short on time. Maybe you’re really into the gym and want to try something different. You’re curious about TBO. OR perhaps you’ve tried other barre workouts and didn’t like them.
Comment below and try 30 days of TILT. Lots of birthday love from me! xo 💖🎂🍫🍾🌸🌹☀️✨

#tiltbyoriana time! Be still my heart 💗😌 I am finally getting some sleep (how long will it last?? 🧐😆). I’m starting back with Foundations as I rebuild my strength and flexibility after inconsistent practice these last few weeks of #nosleep. Feels so good to strengthen, stretch, breathe, and move again. 🌸

What a day. 💕 Mama life. You embrace it. You embrace them and their little hearts. This season is a gift. Sometimes you feel you’ve lost yourself and found yourself all at the same time. It’s confusing, exhilarating, frustrating, sacrificial, and beautiful. It takes a lot of trust in Christ. It takes grit. Compassion. Wisdom. Deep breaths. Long laughs. Many prayers. Some questions. Never enough sleep. I feel my lack and need so often. How in the world do you do right by God and child? I often look to the wisdom of mothers from days gone by, as well of some loving mamas young and old in my own life to help me along way. And most days, I am learning to do the hard things. Sometimes the hard thing is setting aside the list of dailies and the unpacking after traveling to lay on the couch (still in your pjs), watching The Yorkshire Vet, while cuddling your really tired and out of sorts little man having a rough day adjusting to home life again. 💕 Despite my desires and intentions, my house doesn’t yet look like a Pinterest photo, and I haven’t exercised today. One day it will happen. Nevertheless, I am blessed and grateful to stay home.

I haven’t practiced any #tiltbyoriana for a couple weeks or more. Mommy life has really been rough and I’m only now getting some sleep again. I’m just going for it. With bedhead, in my pjs. Not beating myself up. We all need breaks and mamas need to be as patient with themselves as they are with their sweet little ones. No need to rush! We can be intentional and have goals and still take a break. ❤️

Happy Reformation Day! For me this day is both solemn and joyous. The Protestant Reformation begin and spread like wildfire through Europe, influencing generations for centuries afterward, all because a monk stood upon the Word of God and nailed 95 Theses to a church door. Because of his faith in Christ and His Word, the Church and Western culture were forever changed. ✝❤️

So...I broke my new rule about finished a project before beginning a new one 😂 Little Man's envelope sweater is getting snug. So I need to hustle and get his new @frogginette #boysweater started. He won't freeze without it. But he certainly looks so cute in sweaters that I can't let him go un-sweatered this Christmas! PS look how fantastic @mountainmeadowwool Laramie wool knits up! 😍

Greet the morning with determination and you can expect to end the day with satisfaction.

When your neighbor lady says, "Wow, you look beautiful," while holding a baby wearing crooked lipstick 🙀you snap a selfie to commemorate the moment 😂 (Though I'm willing to admit it might have been the baby casting his cherubic glow on me and not the makeup ha!) Makeup exclusively by @gossmakeupartist tutorial 💕 His advanced eye shadow placement tutorial is the most beautiful and classic feminine eye makeup ever. I didn't even tightline or use liner, though I skipped the light shade under brow bone this time.
💄Lipstick is the gorgeous (and only 93 cents!) @wetnwildbeauty Just Garnet.
👁Eyes are private label loose mineral taupey beige lid, @maybelline Made For Mocha in crease, #wetnwild Silent Treatment dark crease shade outer v. and outer third of bottom lashline, and @lorealmakeup Carbon Black Voluminous mascara.
🔥 @maccosmetics Fever blush to finish. (I've owned Fever for 4 years now; it's so concentrated I still haven't hit the pan.) Giant PS: I have come to love my hooded eyes. I've stopped trying to disguise them and just go with it.

First -- I MUST get a haircut soon. The flat side is driving me nuts. 😝 Okay...
Post-refresh Day 2 hair. I used the flax gel after refreshing with water. While I love how soft my hair was this morning (it was glorious!!) upon waking... I am not loving it now. Limp with no volume and no curl definition. I'm trying to soldier on with flax gel. But...??? Maybe I used too much? I did kinda pack it on there. But I would do that with any hair gel for a good cast. Maybe flax gel can't be used quite the same?? Maybe I should have refreshed and NOT added more gel?? 😕🤔🤷🏻‍♀️
Feel free to chime in fellow curlies 🙏🏻➰ cause I'm starting to feel little frustrated...
For reference: Still pretty simple, just using Giovanni Triple shampoo and conditioner, t shirt, and gel of some kind.

Flax gel results. Thus far I like it. This is on Day 2 hair after refresh and flax. I didn't gel yesterday and slept on a cotton pillowcase. So I am quite impressed!! Definitely need new layers cut. So ignore that ☺️ My hair has been extremely dry and rough feeling when I wash it lately. My guess is maybe the aloe gel (couple CGs mention it can strip moisture for some) plus heading into colder weather is drying it out. So hoping the flax gel makes a difference. I also am thinking of trying Giovanni 50:50. But is it too much for low porosity fine hair? Also thinking of trying Raw's wavy line or Innersense. Thoughts??

This sweater from #froginette #lisachemery is up next for Little Man. I love how smart and dapper it is!
--> What are your favorite kid-friendly yarns?? I'm trying to decide on a yarn. Needs to be superwash wool, or wool-acrylic blend so I can wash it easily. I have a couple in mind, and admit to preferring cheaper yarns at this age. But I'm open to suggestions. 🤗💕

Finally got the buttons sewn on, and only 6 months after it was knit. 🙄😆 The @ysolda #weeenvelope is still one of my favorite toppers to pop on Little Man, especially on chilly mountain mornings. 💓
