$100 off Natural Hair Extensions!



Let's talk hair. It can make or break your outfit. Frizzy, flat, snarly, greasy...we have all been there! Not only can a bad hair day ruin your outfit, I'm usually vain enough that it can put a damper on my day. I'm going to share a little secret with you. My hair is naturally: shoulder length, thin, and not at all voluminous. So here it is: I have hair extensions. Another secret: most people with perfect hair have them also. Here's a list of celebrities that partake in being  un-be-weave-able (hair extension joke - haha).

I've recently had the pleasure of working with Natural Hair Extensions owner Barbara Fleet. Her hair extensions are are extremely unique to the United States, the only other products I've seen that are similar are sold in the UK and are of far less quality. Natural Hair Extensions Halo Style extension is made with an invisible micro-filament headband that slips right into your hair and is invisible. You can't feel a thing and the halo takes 30 seconds to apply. The first few days it took a bit of getting used to, but I've been getting compliments every since on my celeb status hair.

Right now the first 50 likes on Natural Hair Extension's Facebook page get $100 off their first order of 18inch hair (that's the length I have)! The color can be matched perfectly to your own hair and the investment is completely worth it.

Why is the Halo Style different:

  • No damage to your scalp
  • No hair loss 
  • No balding
  • No pain
  • No pulling
  • Natural looking hair that works with any length
  • Is real hair of the highest quality (European, Indian, and Asian)
  • Can be matched to any hair color
  • Can be curled, colored, and cut

This is what the Halo looks like:

Lovely locks!

So true. We want to be skinnier, prettier, more like her, less like me. Sometimes it's just better to let go, be yourself, and be thankful. It's so much easier to say than do, but I'm going to try and live my life by these words. I encourage you to do the same.

all my love - m

{Meet Henry} The newest addition to the Dixon & Grimm Household!

Love at first sight!
Little Bear.
Henry and father. 

Meet Henry (previously known as Teddy) our new puppy! He's a German Shepard & Huskie mix.

He's a rescue dog that Adam and I feel completely in love with. He was left on a reservation with no immunizations. By state law puppies must get their shots by a certain date, if this is not done, they are given 10 days to get the pups up to code - or they are euthanized. That's where Andrea's Angels stepped in and saved our little man and his bother and two sisters. He is mild mannered and loves to cuddle - I can't wait until we get him on Monday - he's have his male parts taken care of today.

Adam and I have taken some bigs steps this week! A puppy and he is graduating from Physician Assistant Grad School tonight, he starts work at the Mayo Clinic in July! He will have plenty of time to coddle our little bundle of joy!

Have a beautiful weekend!

Thanks to for the info!

Spring Palette {color love}

Majorly feeling all of these pieces right now. I'm all about coral, mint green, and neon. Think it might have anything to do with the fashion industry deeming these colors on-trend? I'm also working on blogging over at GuiltyStar and have become OBSESSED with the Onilee Necklace. It's the perfect mix of summery, chic, and timeless.
