Denim Cut offs

Denim Cut-Offs

With Summer fast approaching, I am on the hunt for my beach wardrobe. If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen how much we love the beach & how often we go. The beach is honestly my happy place (& my family’s as well).

I have been obsessed with denim cut-offs for as long as I can remember. When I think of Summer, I instantly think of a cute pair of denim cut-offs paired with a cute top & sandals. If you’re as denim obsessed as I am, take a look below for some of my favorite denim cut-offs this year!

Balayage Blonde

Hair Color Process

1024 640 Sheridan Gregory

Happy Friday, friends!

After changing my hair color a few months ago, I have had an unbelievable amount of questions. From the actual color process to the types of products I use to keep it healthy & keep my blonde from turning brassy. So I decided to do a couple posts dedicated to my hair for you guys. This post is going to be dedicated to my actual color process & what my dear friend/hair colorist did to get the color I have. (Thank you, Kadi!)

Blonde Balayage

Floral Dress (Runs large, size down!)

blonde roots Natural blonde hair

The first round was to recreate a natural looking base color by using a gentle non-ammonia semi-permanent color. We used L’Oréal Richesse. The formula was 1/2 7.01, 1/4 7, 1/4 8.13, and 1/4 6.01. (My natural color is closer to a level 7 (dark blonde))

Because my hair has a tendency to lift on the warm side, and oxidize on the warm side, Kadi formulated on the cool side (that’s the .01, but she added a tiny touch of beige in the formula (that’s the .13) as insurance so that the result wouldn’t be too drab or green.

With hair that was as blonde as mine was previously, it is very porous and can grab tones easily and VERY quickly. As quickly as it grabs it can also fade, so the 6.01 was added for that tiny bit of depth and grounding.

Kadi processed the new base color for 30 minutes total, but she brought it down lower gradually, so that it was on the roots for 30 (where she wanted the most depth), but on the mid-shaft of the hair for only about 15.

The entire time she used her hands to blend and blur the color so that there would be no obvious line of demarcation. The end goal was to recreate a base color that looked like it had grown out for many months.

She left the bottom half of the hair out and protected it with a thick conditioner while she rinsed the base, and then she toned all of the hair with a light beige gloss with a hint of gold. Clients always run away from gold, but it’s a truly flattering tone on the skin. The gloss helped to further blur the line from the new base color to the remaining previous blonde on the ends.

She then dried my hair completely and even styled it a bit before hand painting some face framing highlights. This helps her to place exactly where she wants bright pops of color. No second guessing when the hair is styled like how the client actually wears it.

She then balayaged the ends and around the face, and also some very fine pieces throughout the crown.

Kadi never likes to do any more toners at this stage. She think it’s pointless and usually ruins the dimension that she’s worked hard to recreate.

The goal was to recreate a natural looking base color. A fresh canvas. And then paint deliberate and well-placed highlights so that as my natural color grows in, it will be a similar color to my re-created base, so that I can go many months in between color appointments.

The ultimate goal, where we are now, is to use my natural color as the background, and continue only doing minimal highlights for a very natural, low maintenance blonde!

I hope this helps all of you who asked about my color. Stay tuned for another post on my current favorite hair care products 🙂

Sugarfina Century City

If you haven’t had the pleasure of trying Sugarfina yet, I sincerely hope you can try some soon! We fell in love with Sugarfina while living in NYC & when I found out that they just opened Sugarfina Century City, I did a happy dance. We took the boys on a little date & while Hendrix obviously can’t eat candy, he was completely content hanging out in the store. Kannon on the 0ther hand was in heaven! Sugarfina candy is like no other candy I’ve ever had. Just one piece is so satisfying but not overly sweet. Which means you can have 1-2 pieces & not over indulge. That’s saying a lot too because I have zero willpower when it comes to food 🙂

Hi there!

I’m about to get a bit personal & dive into a topic that so many people I know struggle with. Are you ready??

Self Confidence

SELF-CONFIDENCE

We’ve all talked about it at some point & I can almost guarantee that each & every one of us has struggled with it at one point or another and guess what, that is completely normal!

I’d say for most of us, our confidence started lacking in our early teens. At least that’s when I started thinking differently & started being a bit too judgmental towards myself. That whole transition from child to teen can be rough! Oh, how I wish I could go back in time & give my 13-year-old self a big hug! While the teenage years are hard, adulthood can take a toll on your self-confidence even more. Yes, even as an adult I still struggle with self-confidence. After having my two boys, my body has gone through many changes. I know you all might not see these changes in my photos but I promise, that doesn’t mean they don’t exist. Quite honestly, I’m not 100% comfortable showing the stretch marks on my stomach BUT I have finally learned to accept that this might be a lifelong struggle & work on building myself up each & every day. So with all of that said, I thought I would share 5 ways to help boost your self-confidence that I’ve used over the years & am still using now. The good news though? They have helped in the past & are helping again now!

How to boost self confidence Help Self Confidence self confidence help

1.) Stop comparing yourself

The saying “comparison is the thief of joy” could not be more accurate. Trust me, I have struggled with the comparison game most of my life & it is one of the worst things you can do for yourself. While I’m not 100% cured (I still have my moments, I’m human), I try to accept those thoughts & then think about all of the wonderful things I have in my life. Even if it’s just the little things, there is at least one thing for you to be grateful for!

2.) Have “you” time

Before becoming a mom, this thought never even crossed my mind because I had plenty of time to pamper myself. Now, it’s a luxury if I can use the bathroom by myself! TMI? Probably but I’m basically an open book at this point. Seriously though, make time for yourself! No matter how busy you are, find time to pamper yourself a bit. Go get a manicure (or give yourself one if you’re on a budget!), just do something that makes you happy & makes you feel good about yourself. Once again, it can be a small thing or a big thing, it’s just so important to give yourself a little something. You are important & deserve it!

3.) Accept imperfection

NO ONE is perfect. I know we all scroll through social media, flip through magazines & see those “perfect” people on our televisions. Don’t be fooled though, those people are not always as they seem & I’m sure they deal with self-confidence just as much as the next person does. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that accepting my flaws actually makes me feel so much happier about myself. Letting go of the things that you can’t change, will, in turn, change the way you think about yourself. Our imperfections make us unique & it’s about time we all start celebrating our imperfections!

4.) Get moving & get outside

Getting out & about can drastically change your mood. When we lived in NYC last year, it was freezing (I was literally miserable) & I didn’t even want to leave our apartment. Boy, was that a bad idea! Even just a walk around the block made me feel so much better & motivated me in every aspect of my life. A little fresh air & a bit of exercise can & will give you that little boost of endorphins you need to get through the day. So the next time you’re feeling down about yourself, get up, get out & get moving!

5.) Compliment yourself

Look yourself in the mirror & give yourself a compliment. This might feel incredibly awkward at first but I promise that even just one positive thought about yourself, can turn your whole mindset around. We all have something that we like about ourselves. Grab a piece of paper, write it down & put it on your fridge or mirror for a daily reminder. You’ll start viewing yourself very differently when you start being kind to yourself instead of tearing yourself down.

What do YOU do to help boost your self-confidence? I would love for you to comment below! Share any tips you have & keep the good vibes flowing!

Until this outfit, I hadn’t worn overalls since the 3rd grade. I’ll be honest with you guys, I was completely against the overall trend until recently. It’s not that I didn’t like them on other people, I just never thought that I would feel comfortable enough to wear them myself. BUT since my goal for this year was to let go of my fears & do things that put me out of my comfort zone, I decided to be brave & just buy the dang overalls! I know, a very small feat for my goal but it was a small victory for me. Go big or go home, right?

Now that I own a pair & actually enjoy this little skirt overalls ensemble, I’ve been eyeing a few other pairs. I figured I would round up my favorites & get your opinion on them, so without further ado…

How do you guys feel about this trend? Is it something you would wear (or already wear) OR are you 100% against it & think that only children should wear them? Sound off in the comments below!

My New Website!

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

Hi guys!

I’m beyond ecstatic to introduce you all to SheridanGregory.com! The idea of rebranding had been in my head for far too long & a few months ago, I finally decided to just go for it. When I originally started blogging, it was simply a way to show family & friends our life through photos & videos. Over the years, it slowly transitioned from a personal blog to a creative outlet & finally, into my career.

Around the time Hendrix was born, I felt this desperate need for a change (having a baby can do that to you :)). While I love sharing my outfits with you all, I had a strong desire to start sharing more. I wanted you all to get to know me as a person instead of just a face behind a fashion blog. I want to share all of the things I love with you guys.

Don’t worry though, I won’t ever stop posting my outfits. I love styling new looks & that’s such a massive part of my life & what got me to where I am today. I’m just saying that I want to share MORE with you all & not feel tied down to one thing. With blogging being such a new industry, it’s sometimes hard to get caught up in what everyone else is doing & trying to copy someone else because they’re “successful”. The honest truth is that we are all SO different & there is room for each & every person in this incredible online community.ASOS White Dress welcome sheridan gregory

I want to get to know all of you & have a creative space that we can all share & grow. I want us all to empower each other & feel comfortable & confident in our own bodies. We are all so wonderfully different & I just want all of us to embrace that! You all have been such a huge support system for me over the years & I really want to be that for you as well. I’ve made so many new friends through my blog & I would love nothing more than to get to know even more of you!

So with that said.. Welcome! I hope you enjoy the new site & explore a bit to see the new features 🙂

Target Date

Our Weekly Target Date

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

I’m not even going to pretend that we don’t frequent Target at least once a week. With two kids, there is always something we need (or want) & to be honest, it’s always an adventure for us!

Even though we always leave with more than we planned on purchasing (anyone else!?), Target is our go-to for all of our everyday essentials. Baby formula & laundry detergent being our most frequent purchases because we go through these insanely quick. I think that anyone that has raised a baby or child, can testify to the glorious amounts of laundry that happen on the weekly (daily?) basis. With 4 of us now, the amount of laundry we go through is almost mind blowing. Which is why we did a happy dance when we found out that our favorite laundry detergent, Persil ProClean, is now sold in Target nationwide!!

Honestly, you can’t beat Persil. We were introduced to it a couple years ago & fell in love with how well it worked and the amazing scent. Since I’m surrounded by boys, it’s necessary to have a laundry detergent that smells lovely, gets stains out AND is gentle on our clothes. Persil ProClean does all of that & now that it’s at Target nationwide, we don’t have to worry about finding it, we can just add it to our list of Target must-haves & we’re good to go! If you couldn’t tell by now.. It’s the little things in life that make me happy!

 

I hope you enjoy the video! Leave a comment below if you are as addicted to Target as we are 🙂

Jumping Bean

My Little Jumping Beans

Jumping Beans Tee Kohls Jumping Beans Jumping Beans Baby Boy Jumping Beans Toddler Jumping Beans Collection Jumping Beans Baby New Jumping Beans

These little guys sure brighten our lives! I love having adventures around LA & it’s the best when we document days like this because looking back on how much they’ve grown is the most bittersweet thing. Kids grow up far too quickly!

On another note though, how cute are their little outfits from Kohl’s!? I always love a good graphic tee & when I find them for my boys, I immediately want to purchase them (& secretly wish they made them in my size). Both boys outfits are from the newly re-designed Jumping Beans collection that just launched in-store & online at Kohl’s this month. The new Jumping Beans collection has such adorable pieces & I love how the clothing is such great quality. With two adventurous little boys, we need clothes that are going to last & these will definitely do just that! With Spring & Summer right around the corner, I’m definitely going to make a few more purchases from this collection. (I especially love this tee & these shorts!) Plus, they’re having a site wide sale for 20% off! Use code: YES2YOU for 20% off + 3x points!

If you have little ones, have you checked out the new Jumping Beans collection at Kohl’s?

TILI Box

The TILI Box from QVC

1024 683 Sheridan Gregory

I have been compensated by QVC for my participation. All opinions are my own.

QVC TILI Box QVC Nudestix QVC Beauty QVC Julep QVC Wen QVC bareMineralsDiscovering new brands & trying out new products is hands down one of my favorite things to do. The excitement I feel when I’ve found a new product that I absolutely love, is almost embarrassing.. Almost! 😉

When I heard about this TILI box from QVC, I knew I had to get my hands on one. After discovering one of my new favorite skincare brands through QVC, I wanted to try out the other beauty brands that they vary as well. This TILI box was the perfect opportunity!

TILI stands for ‘Try It Love It’ & it’s not a subscription box. QVC puts out a new box every quarter with different products from the brands they carry. The box features 8 products with 3 of those products being full size & retails for $20. Which is a total steal! & if you’re new to QVC, you can receive $5 off of your first purchase with the code “FIVE4U”.

Now for a little bit about the products in this TILI box!

NudeStix Lip/Cheek Pencil in Mystic

This is one of my absolute favorite lip products!! You can’t go wrong with this lip color & it also looks gorgeous on your cheeks.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream

This is one of my favorite beauty brands & this product is a holy grail for me.

Julep When Pencil Met Gel Eyeliner

I hadn’t tried this brand before & I was so excited to swatch this eyeliner. It goes on smooth & has great pigmentation. I can’t wait to wear this for a night out!

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser

This is another product that I’m trying out for the first time but I absolutely love the brand, Philosophy!

bareMinerals Bare Haven Cream

I absolutely love bareMinerals makeup & their skincare is just as amazing. If you haven’t tried this cream yet, you should definitely check it out!

WEN Pomegranate Conditioner

I was SO excited to see this product when I opened up my TILI box. I have heard the most rave reviews over WEN products but haven’t ever tried them.

Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream

I have QVC to thank for introducing me to Elemis. I absolutely love this brand & think they have some of the best skincare products. This cream is so hydrating; I can’t get enough of it!

Laura Geller Protective Under Make-Up Primer

Laura Geller is another brand that I have heard so much about but had never tried out. I am primer obsessed & love that this one has SPF in it!

Have you guys tried any of these products?

This sweater, these jeans & these boots are on constant repeat because I can wear them all so many different ways.
