Feeling the rainbow stripe

Happy Wednesday, friends, and thanks for dropping by That Blonde Rebel!

This week is dragging on, am I right? I thought yesterday was Thursday, but it was only Tuesday (insert perplexed emoji face here). I think I’m just ready to head to San Antonio for the weekend and then Monday head to the rodeo back in Houston for Kacey Musgraves! I am beyond excited to see this angel perform IRL!

I thought because it’s pretty dreary in Houston right now, that I would share a colorful look that makes me happy and smile v big!

How I really feel about HUM Supplements

Happy Friday, y’all! We’ve made it another week and it just feels like time is flying!

I wanted to pop on and give y’all my review of some HUM products I’ve been taking over the last month. I truly wanted to test these and give you my honest review. I’ll start by giving you a baseline. I’m a very picky eater so I am sure I don’t get the right amount of vitamins and minerals from food, so I wanted to see if I could balance that out with some supplements from HUM. With so many weddings come up over the next few months, I wanted to focus on my skin and hair, and because of my suppressed energy from thyroid disease, I wanted to give myself a boost. My review is below!

The one I have seen the most results from is the Red Carpet supplement. This is supposed to support skin and hair and oh my gosh, my hair is longer and feels shinier after a month of taking these! Y’all know I cut my bangs back in July (*cringe*) and in December I was bummed to see they hadn’t grown out as much as I would have liked. I started popping these around noon every day with my lunch, and bam, the bangs are almost framing my face! My nails are also strong and growing faster. I am extremely pleased with these and will be keeping up with them!

The other supplement I’ve been taking daily is the Uber Energy. This supports your energy levels by support your adrenals. Your adrenals have so much more power in your body than you really think. Because I suffer from thyroid disease, my adrenals become suppressed if I don’t take my meds regularly or if they’re off. I’ll be honest and say I’m not good about taking my thyroid meds at the same time every day and this may have skewed the benefits of Uber Energy. On the days that I consistently take my thyroid medication and the Uber Energy, I feel better; more clear headed, with some increased energy.

Another HUM product (that I bought myself) are the Glow Sweet Glow Gummies that have hyoluranic acid and are supposed to help your skin. I popped two of these every single day and my skin has never felt better. Even in winter. I got so many compliments when I was home for Christmas on my skin and because I was doing nothing out of the ordinary with my skincare routine, I knew these were giving me a boost. Shop them here.

The Sisterhood of the Busy Schedules

With it being the week of Valentines AND Galentine’s, I think it’s time we talk about the F word. Yea, that’s right. Friendship.

Now that I’m 30, my friendships have changed. Some have ended, some are stronger than ever, and some are new and still growing. The season that we’re in doesn’t allow for lounging with the girls very often. We have to plan (often way in advance). We’re busy, we’re working away, and we’re blooming into the adults our parents hoped we’d be. AND WE ARE TIRED (no one tells you how tired you’re going to be).

I went to lunch with three of my gal pals on Sunday and it got me thinking. As the days of our lives go off in various directions, how do we stay connected? Invested? One of us is about to have a baby, another is engaged, and the third bought the cutest fixer upper. Yet here we are, catching up over wine (and a mocktail for mama) and laughing about jury duty horror stories and talking through what the next few months look like.

Here’s just a few tips for staying connected with your bests at this stage of life:

  1. Give yourselves something to look forward to! Is it a girls getaway? Maybe a spa day. Okay, let’s settle on brunch. A study just recently came out that said women with a friend group that spend time together IRL live longer.
  2. Snail mail. I think letter writing is becoming a dying art. My friends and family know that I LOVE TO SEND MAIL. I have a drawer full of cards for whatever the next occasion is going to be. Let your friends (both near and far) know you’re thinking of them.
  3. Call me, beep me, if you wanna reach me. We’re so quick to send a text, comment on the latest Insta (yes, keep doing those things), but when was the last time you called your best friend to check in? FaceTimed? Hearing someone’s voice or seeing their face gives another layer to your communication, your connection. You can hear the tone in someone’s voice, see the expression of laughter on someone’s face. It’s a beautiful thing. Pick up the phone!

Above all else, find ways to support one another, even when you’re in bed by 9 with a facemask on.

And for that next meet up with your besties? I’ve got the PERFECT look!

Blue Valentine

Happy Monday, y’all and thanks for stopping by the blog!

It is the week of Valentine’s Day and I’ve got so much pink and red coming your way!

This first look I’ve dubbed “Blue Valentine” because, yea, you guessed it, it’s got blue in it. This wrap dress is super flattering and has bright pink hearts and lippies all over it. To say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. I also foresee myself still wearing this well into Spring and Summer. Big plus: this dress is available in xxs-4x!
