Today is THE day. Clean day. Back to non lazy Sunday cleaning Sunday day. And this includes the Jackson! It’s not tough cleaning the puppy though, he loooves showering with me. He will whine and push his way through the bathroom door when I’m showering, and try to jump in the shower.. but he’s still too small. So I lift him up into the bottom of the tub while I’m showering and he just loves it. He’ll lick the water on the bottom of the tub (he eats sand. nuff said.) and when I move out of the way he will sit right underneath the shower stream with his eyes closed. In the past having doggies and bathing them was not too hard, but getting their face.. forget about it! With Jackson I don’t even have to do a thing. Maybe today I will try and get him in for a mop chop because he is one shaggy dog. It is hilarious watching him try to run on the hardwood floor though!

So as I never really was a girly girl growing up, when I started modeling I jumped into a world of beauty and secret tips and tricks that were just astounding to me! Well not all of them, but I decided to start sharing some of my beauty tips I’ve learned through modeling because I know I’ve got some lady fans too! But these are for you boys as well, because although I do like a rough around the edges kinda guy, I do like it when ya’ll take care of yourselves a tiny bit too
So first up is my hair saver, without this my hair would probably be breaking off and a dingy shade of brown yuck. Extra virgin olive oil hair treatments! A lot of salons have hot oil treatments, and honestly I’ve never been in for one because I’m not a big fan of hair stylists :lol Plus throughout life I’ve found that most at-home things are way better than anything “professional”. Anyway, what I do is in the morning after I wake up I’ll grab my bottle of olive oil and pour a bunch into my hands and work it into the ends of my hair, about from my ears down. The hair from my scalp to my ears is always soft because my natural hair oils reach down to there, so don’t worry about putting the olive oil above your ears. Guys you don’t generally have to worry about this beauty tip because your hair is so short usually! From curling my hair all the time for photoshoots, the ends of my hair gets fried so this saves it. I’ll wrap my hair up into a bun and go about my morning and usually shower it off around noon. Some women leave it on overnight for 8+ hours with a plastic bag over their head to keep the heat in, plus they’ll microwave the oil right before they put it on to get the “hot oil” part of the treatment but I just skip it. When you go to wash it out, make sure you put shampoo in your hair BEFORE getting it wet or you’re hooped! :lol
For variation you can throw some honey in there, or some conditioner but I just go straight olive oil. I use this stuff for body lotion as well, it’s like natures baby oil! I do the olive oil hair treatment about once a week if I can remember, to keep my hair in good condition.
LOL yes that’s the sound I make when I am annoyed. Jack’s been driving me nuts lately, if it’s not the allergies because of him it’s trying to work and him trying to play. It’s gotten to the point where he will drop his ball on my chair when I’m working! He used to simply pick his ball up then drop it continuously right under my chair because he knew that would get my attention, but he’s getting smarter. So I took him outside for a walk today and he tore up the grass and loved every second of it. Right now I really don’t mind because I’m feeling very unmotivated towards work (computer stuff) and I just don’t want to be on my computer! At least tomorrow I will be able to get a workout in since my legs are feeling better and not super stiff anymore. I think it’s about time to do something weird and spontaneous so break up the monotony, life has all been about work the past couple weeks and I’m going bonkers guys! Any suggestions on something fun and different to do?
Today we went for a nice long walk, to get out of the house and get some fresh air and exercise and along the way Jack had his first encounter with some cows. Thankfully I had my video camera on me!
