7 Quick Takes Friday #33

No poo update: Irritatingly, my dry scalp flared up again early this week and I was *thisclose* to going back to shampoo just to use medicated shampoo on it. Instead, I decided to massage tea tree oil into my scalp before bed and let it sit overnight then wash it with just water and the apple cider vinegar rinse in the morning. Much better! I used tea tree oil a few more times instead of the Aveda oil this week to continue to work on the scalp issue. I think I’ll do that a few times week to ward it off. Still haven’t used shampoo since Christmas!

This week’s successful Pinterest find: more natural cold prevention! I’ve had a bit of a runny/stuffy nose since we returned from a trip to a friend’s lake house this weekend and I tried this simple mixture of honey and cinnamon.

Not sure if this alone was responsible for me not getting sick, but so far I haven’t got any worse! Plus: YUM!

You might remember that I’m testing out a new meal planning system, Food on the Table. So far I’ve made one of the recipes this week and it was really yummy!

Food on the Table Meal #1

I have a crockpot meal planned for one day this weekend. If you’re interested, you can sign up for free any time. The Premium version costs around $5/month. I think after trying it for another week I might sign up for it!

I found the most adorable little girls’ boutique here in Richardson, Little Lam Boutique. Got some really cute presents for some upcoming little girls’ birthdays and Sip N See’s!

But then I messed up big time and let the sweet owner talk me into spending way too much on my own little girl. In my defense, I’ve never actually shopped for her and never really bought her new clothes – we rely almost exclusively on hand-me-downs, which I love! So when I was surrounded by super cute new stuff I got really confused about how much I should be paying. $70 is too much to spend on a dress for an 11 month old, Jenny. I think we can all agree on that. MY dresses don’t usually even cost that much.

So I will be re-selling at least one of the purchases on Craigslist or Ebay, New With Tags, since the sale stipulated I can’t return them. Here’s the one I think I’m going to part with:

It’s a Giggle Moon brand Abby Gigi outfit set with matching bow. I’ll sell it for $55. If you know anyone who is interested, pass this info on to them! I’ll mail it and take PayPal!

After I spent all that money, I saved some serious money by buying Valentine-themed decorations and cupcake trimmings at Walmart for Little Lady’s birthday!

I am currently interested in essential oils and thinking of signing up with a company that sells them just so I can take advantage of their educational information on how to use the oils most effectively. Would you readers be interested in hearing about what I learn?
