My Favorite Things: Textured Waves

So lately, having long hair, I have had fun experimenting with hair products and styling!

I have not had hair this long since I was little…. so this is big for me!

Here are some of my favorite products and one of my favorite styles I use them with:

Happy Wednesday! ❤ Amy

an evening with the family: Happy Birthday Jonce!

As much as I can, I try and spend time with my sister (Katie of Katie Jean Designs) and her amazing family. Last night we got to celebrate her husband Jonce’s birthday! I love getting some practice with my camera, and loved even more getting to capture this great night. Katie and Jonce will soon be moving along with their two little boys, Caden and Clive, so I am trying to soak up as much time with them as I can. 

I decided to help Katie out and make dinner and a cake for the evening. We made raw vegan tacos (one of our faves) from My New Roots. This recipe is amazing… you can find it HERE.

Then I found this AMAZING new blog called This Rawsome Vegan Life. While drooling over all the recipes, I found a raw, vegan, carrot cake! Super simple to make and came out delicious! We topped it with lavender, pistachios and walnuts. The lavender added such an amazing flavor. You can find that recipe HERE.

And the rest of the night was full of impromptu portraits, blowing out candles and chess….
