My curls have always been crunchy...🤦♀️all the mousses i used would be so sticky. i also had to use way more products to get the look. until now. i’ve found my favorite curly hair products.
how i did this look 👀
i washed this morning.
ran a comb through my wet hair.
added a dime size amount of curl cream.
three pumps of mousse and 3 drops of rejuvenique oil.
then i used the diffuser for about 3 minutes.
such an easy look. if you are fighting wavy hair, try this. you might have beautiful beach waves and not even know it!
dm if you want more details.
Today is a trip....
morning was crazy...
work was c.r.a.z.y...
finished the second half of my workout. now to work my side hustle, make egg cups... then go sit in the stand while the weather changes from summer to fall🍁🍂 thankful my mil is in town to hang out with my runny nosed kiddo.
sitting in a tree for a few hours is going to be a beautiful time to clear my mind!
Bridger told us that he had the best day of his life on saturday.
we drove 3 hours he asked at least 50 times if we were there yet. we got to annarbor and it was raining. we brought raincoats so we were ready. but then as we walked to the stadium about a 2 mile walk from where we parked a heavy storm cell came through with thunder and lightning. we had no shelter to hide under. we just kept walking. jeremy didn’t have a raincoat so he got soaked.
when we got to the stadium we found out there was a 1hr rain delay. so we walked around just taking in the experience.
experiences are memories and memories make up some of life’s greatest joys.
sometimes you have to just let imperfect things happen... roll with the punches and you will have the best day of your life.
i hope i can give this boy thousands of “best days of his life!!”
I was a new mom , a daughter to a parent with cancer, a new wife because let’s face newborns make you different, and new to this social media thing called facebook. time changes so many things.
i remember venturing out in the snow alone to take pictures this day. i felt so good doing my own thing, thinking my own thoughts, and just being brooke for a little bit.
my life has settled down a lot since then. my parent is cancer free, my son is 10, i’m happily married for over 15 years, and social media is part of life for everyone now.
think about life a decade ago for you? #transformationtuesday
My sister in law handed me down the jeans she grew to small for. she’s the most stunning sister!! lucky me!
as i’ve gone slowly and steadily from a 12, to a 10 to a 8 and now a 6. she has supplied me with the next size!
honestly saying i’m in a size 6 feels like crazy talk! i’m stopping here...
i’m happy, content, and loving right where i’m at.
the journey of maintaining your weight and fitness level is just as involved as getting here. but it feels good knowing when you have gotten where you wanted to be!! it’s taken me years. any good change does take time. because it means it’s was deliberate and intentional. never give up...invest in yourself... you are worth it!!! #confortableinyourownskin#selflove#confidentwomen#confidencecrusade
Cheers to the #last90days
just finished another program and it feels amazing to say i haven’t given up on myself in a solid year and a half.
what are you waiting for?
by not starting you are telling yourself and everyone around you that you aren’t important enough.
but you are!! it’s possible you are the glue that holds your family together and you are worth investing in.
start....i promise you it’s worth it!
Happy birthday to my side hustle!! i am blown away at how generous they are!! do you have eczema or psoriasis?
postpartum hair loss?
does your baby have cradle cap?
do you have an itchy scalp?
this little bottle has little bottle has literally 101 uses.
it’s value is $99 and they are giving it away free!
ask me how you can get this amazing product!
My hair is wild y’all!
i get this question more than anything else. how do you do your curls?
the picture on the right is a fresh wash and b**w dry. picture on the left is using a 1.5 inch curling iron. set at 300 degrees and curled in layers, 2 inch chunks, and away from my face. i will post a quick tutorial later today. #hairtransform#fromwildtowavy#confidencecrusade#tgif
Real life....this week has been a mess. all of our dogs have had some sort of issue. multiple trips to our vet. although dogs are lower maintenance. being a working mom with 2 senior dogs and 2 younger dogs all with issues in different days has worn me out this week. i don’t know where the day goes. and by the end of it i exhausted. i keep reminding myself it’s always about mindset. if i feel exhausted and mentally drained it probably because i am. but wait a minute i’m in control of my feelings. if i want to feel those feelings then i will allow myself to feel them. if i want to feel like i’ve got it all under control and i’m multitasking like a champ. and i feel like a champ then i can feel that way too.
it’s always a choice!
so today i’m on day 4 hair... thank god for the champ dry shampoo and a braid. i got my workout in which is always centers me, showered in my shower cap😂... because who has time to wash and do their hair....and i’m out the door for work.
today i’m choosing to feel like a champ! 🤸♀️
Place i like to go. day 1 of #diblasiophotochallenge
northern michigan in the middle of the winter! ❄️ it’s been a few years and i wasn’t a 🎿 then, like i am now. i can’t wait to get back up there for another winter adventure.
this is a snowy lake leelanau, ice caves on lake michigan, and a quiet fish town. the ice caves in the lake are a natural formation that happen with wind and cold temps. they haven’t formed to this size since we were there a few years ago. definitely a special thing to have gotten to see them!
i feel like it’s time for an #fridayintroductions it’s been a little while since i’ve done one.
🌀i’m a mom to a spunky kind hearted boy, and 4 bird dogs. 🌀i’ve been married for 15 years, to a man who works so hard for his family and i swear can fix anything!
🌀i was born in the inner city of detroit.
🌀i have an associate degree in travel ✈️ and tourism and ecotourism. i don’t get to travel enough. i’m working on that...
🌀i’ve lived in ohio longer than anywhere else. it’s a great state with wonderful people.
🌀fitness/nutrition 💪🏻has become part of my life. about 1.5 years ago my coach came into my life and really helped me get committed and stay focused. 🌀i work for an excellent chiropractor. i love my job! 🌀i’ve lived on two islands🌴 🌀i love water and the beach 🏖 but the mountains also speak to me.
🌀i want to visit all of the national parks in the 🇺🇸. 🌀i love college football and sports. but i never played a team sport.
🌀i love my friends like they are my family. i’m a total people person. 🌀i was a photographer 📸 for many years, but being a mom came first so i set that aside to focus of raising our son. 🌀i am a huntress, i’ve harvested many deer to provide for my family. 🦌 my husband helps and supports me doing this with him 💯 🌀i have an entrepreneurial spirit i can’t help it. 🌀i am a business owner. my business allows me to feel like i’m able to help and give back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
if you are new thank you for the recent follow!! if you have always been here you rock and i appreciate you! i will continue to provide you with a glimpse of my life!
Can’t stop smelling it!!! our new line features restructuring of damaged hair...today my hair feels so smooth too. could be because i haven’t worn it straight in ages but i don’t care. what i do know is i love it! 💕 i checked in with my clients and friends who also used theirs for the first time today. and we are all hair sniffing over here today. 😁💁♀️
it’s 1/2 off today and tomorrow! won’t be available to the public besides these sales for a little while longer.
When i see this portrait of myself i see 40 years of wisdom, miles of smiles, a sense of peace, these are the marks of a girl becoming a confident woman.
my story is what makes me unique and strong.
my dream is mine and no one will ever care about it as much as i do! do you dream? dream about owning a home, dream about traveling, dream about finding your life partner, dream about having children, dream about paying off debt, dream about owning a farm, dream about being thin, dream about owning a business? or do you look at someone who has those things and say i wish i could be like them?
as this year nears an end i can definitely say i have never focused so h*****n my dreams. why did i wait so long???
i hear all the time at work. don’t get old.... but i also hear “my 40’s were the best years of my life.” i have to say i’m beginning to know what they mean by that. a sense of wisdom kicks in that reminds you you have lived 40 years. that’s a lot of years of learning life, and realizing that your happiness is up to you. i think it’s easier to see through to your true self, and yet you gain perspective on how short life is.
moral of this post is don’t rush life away and don’t fear age. it’s coming no matter what! embrace it a dream a lot!

Today was my first am workout in weeks. why? because i’ve just been adjusting to our new schedules.
in this last month i’ve had more “off” days than i can count. last week i realized it was because i wasn’t starting my day with my workout. i love having ahhhh ha moments! 🤸♀️
of course i didn’t come to this realization on my own. i’ve got this amazing tribe of women in my life. it’s a game changer you guys i may workout alone but i’m actually never alone. ladies find your tribe and love them hard!💕 because you never know when it will be your turn to need them!
I mean not everyone believes in god like i do and that’s ok. but when you see stuff like this i find it extremely hard to not be in awe of what he creates for us.
anyone know what butterfly this belongs to? we decided to leave this log alone.
I shot my first dove.
not your traditional shot..
ripley retrieved it. bless her heart! she is 16 and deaf but she watches your body language and goes after the birds still. she amazes me!!
wasn’t a really active night but we had fun anyways! not sure why i haven’t done this before?
