Bewitchin' Projects Block Party | Rustic Autumn Decor for Any Home

Happy Fall, everyone! 

It's starting to really cool down here in Phoenix, and starting to feel more like autumn here in the desert. I am SO stoked, though, because I will be visiting my mom in Alaska this week and will be able to enjoy some really cool weather. With that in mind, I wanted to share my favorite autumn decor submissions from last week's block party with all of you! 

Come check out these beautiful home accent ideas:

Old Wives Tail | Hair Mask Review

Since moving back to Arizona almost 2 years ago, my hair has suffered from a lot of sun exposure and dry heat. I already have fine hair, so whenever it feels stringy or dry it is absolutely noticeable. For the longest time, I've been considering investing in a hair treatment that will help alleviate this hair damage, and I am happy to say that I've found a hair mask that has made all the difference!

Old Wives Tail hair mask is fantastic! It is 100% organic, and 10% of the proceeds go to charities that save animals from being tested on. The Organic Cinnamon & Almond Oil for Hair Mask smells incredible--the cool part about this treatment is it requires minimal effort on my part. When I do my treatment, I coat my hair in the hair mask and then wrap my head in a clean towel for about 1 hour--once that time has elapsed, I take a shower and rinse the product from my hair and it feels great! I had a noticeable difference in the softness and shine in my hair for a solid 3 washes after I used the product, and then I reapplied more the next week and noticed another big difference in the health and shine of my hair. 

If you or someone you know is looking into investing in a hair mask, I highly recommend Old Wives Tail! You should for sure check it out--oh yeah, and it's free international shipping! And that's awesome!

How to Wear a Plus Size Kimono | Alight Plus Size Clothing

Alright ladies, let's get real. Some plus size clothing just isn't flattering am I right? Sometimes kimonos aren't the cutest thing a busty gal with a bigger waist can wear, and there is a fine line between plus size and moo moo. So today, I am going to talk about some stylish ways to wear a kimono! 

Kimonos are fun and flowy, and can be a really fun addition to your closet that can help diversify your wardrobe and your outfits for all seasons. Check out some of these other plus size kimono looks:

Saying "Cheers!" to 300 Blog Posts! with Zazzol Wine Aerator

I can't even believe the blog is over 3 years old and this is our 300th blog post!!! It's so exciting to celebrate our achievements with Our Mini Family and the opportunities we've been blessed with because of it. 

Tonight, we are CELEBRATING!

Adam and I just want to take a moment to thank all of you who read our blog regularly, and welcome those of you who are newer to our blogger family! We wouldn't be here and keep doing posts each week if it wasn't for your love and support! We appreciate you!

We thought we'd begin the festivities with a glass of red wine!

Admittedly, Adam and I normally drink "cheap" wine, so of course when we found out that we can use our Zazzol Wine Aerator to make even the cheapest selections taste better--we were all about trying it! 

I was a little hesitate at first, to be honest. I thought "this contraption looks like a joke!" And we were kidding around that it was just going to make the air taste fancier. We're a bunch of goofs! It REALLY works! You can definitely taste the difference, at least, with this particular (generic) red wine we were enjoying. We had a sip of course before we tried the Zazzol wine aerator and then had a taste after it went through to compare--it is hard to explain why it tasted better, but the best analogy  I can come up with is it was essentially like drinking water from the tap (and then trying filtered water). After doing a bit of research, we realized we didn't know as much about wine as we thought we had! Turns out, wine aerators are the next big thing!

Here are some of the images that Zazzol has shared with us to demonstrates the aerator technology:

I am excited to buy a Zazzol Wine Aerator for all of my family who drinks wine--I know it will make for an awesome Christmas gift! And we're happy to provide you all with a 20% discount if you're interested in buying one for yourself or a wine lover you know! The discount is good until 10/15/14 and the code is:
