The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You

One of the reasons I started writing Glamamom almost 5 years ago was to recapture some of the creativity and ambition that felt stifled when I became a parent.

I’m in the process of evaluating a long list of new hair care products that promise to thicken, moisturize, protect, and rejuvenate winter tresses and will report back in full detail but OGX’s new Healing + Vitamin E and Moisture + Vitamin B5 collections are among my favorites. Both contain vitamin formulas that repair damaged hair and restore vitality. My hair has new life after a New Year’s layered trim and adding these into my rotation of shampoos and conditioners.

It’s hard to believe that less than two weeks ago it was 50+ degrees and we were enjoying a balmy afternoon jog in the park. If I didn’t have these photos as proof, I would think it was all a dream.

To make winter a little more manageable for those of us moms who are unable steal away regularly for the pampering we richly deserve (wink, wink!), Panasonic has a line of beauty products perfect for an at-home spa day.
