[via weheartit]

Happy Friday! Have you ever tried a Moroccan Oil treatment in your hair? I swear by it. Currently, I’m using an Argan Oil Treatment, which is a little cheaper than Moroccan Oil, and from what I can tell, probably not that much different, just not name brand. I use it every few days, which may seem like an oil-treatment overkill. I’m really reluctant to ever recommend oil in the hair, however, the great thing about this oil is it’s lightweight. You wouldn’t even know it’s oil. It leaves hair smooth, lustrous, and protects against heat and environmental damage. I also have a shampoo and conditioner, which I’ve yet to use. I have tried a Moroccan oil hair mask, but it seems that the oil is more effective, so save some money.

I can only vouch for my hair type, which is a dry, hot mess of tangles. But the product description claims “for all hair types.” Now, I’m really interested in trying it on my skin.

Here are some links for your weekend:

Do it yourself:

- An elegant d.i.y. fabric bow belt.
- d.i.y. gold leaf your fingernails – a glitzy, fun look.
- I’m loving this embellished capelet, perfect for the upcoming spring nights.

Food:

-A healthy pumpkin pie ice cream recipe without sugar. I just wish I liked pumpkin. It looks so creamy and delish. Also, no ice cream maker required.
- And a fairly healthy fudgy roasted banana cake with walnuts and chocolate chips. Roasted banana? yes, please.

Home decor:

- My friend Cait over at Hernando House does a gorgeous kitchen revamp. And she shows you how she painted those trees.
- I got a Silhouette Digital Paper Cutter for Christmas, and finally decided what I’m going to make first – these beautiful bird pillows.
