Wednesday Confessions


Okay - here we go with my first ever confessions post!  I'm always laughing out loud while reading these each week so I thought it was finally time I did one of my own.  Let's get right to it!

I confess I'm down to only washing my hair once or twice a week now.  There really is something behind "training your hair" to not need to be washed everyday.  I used to have to wash it every couple of days because it would get greasy but it was just so.much.work.  I bought a bunch of different dry shampoos to try out until I settled on Batiste's Original and then I cut out a bunch of the styling products that weren't doing anything to my hair except making it look greasy.  Best thing I ever decided to do.  Honestly though, I barely even need the dry shampoo anymore - my hair just doesn't get oily at all.  You can do it, too - here is a great article about how to train your hair!


I confess I'm the most hypocritical driver in Chicago.  This is usually the scene - I'm merging onto the freeway on my way to work and no one will let me over.  I'm getting annoyed, I have my blinker on, traffic is moving at about 5 mph and each car just gets a little closer to the one in front of so I can't squeeze in.  Finally some poor soul from out of town finally lets me in and by the next exit, I'm the jerk that won't let anyone merge because "I've got places to be!"  This similar situation also occurs when changing lanes, driving the speed limit (that doesn't exist here), and trying to get off the highway.  I do feel bad about this, I really do.

I confess I didn't get sushi on Sunday (even though I was craving it) because of the show, Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.  This is an embarrassing one to admit just because I actually watched this show.  I'm a pretty paranoid eater to begin with - I'm looking at you chicken - so when Dorothy mentioned that "you can't eat sushi on Sunday's because the last fish delivery is typically on Friday's so the fish isn't fresh anymore by Sunday", I took that very seriously.  My husband thinks I'm crazy but never again sushi on Sunday, never again.


I confess I am super OCD about my Instagram.  Like a certified freak about it.  I've been known to post a picture and then delete it 5 minutes later because something about the pic is driving me crazy and I can't let it go.  I need all the lines to be perfectly straight, I can't post similar pictures too close to each other, the lighting has to be decent and I like my profile page to be all different pictures of different things if that makes sense.  This picture I posted on Saturday night killed me after over-analyzing it.  The entire picture is crooked, it looks weird with the top of the wall cut off in the back only showing the wainscoting and I just posted a picture of flowers 2 pictures before this one.  I KNOW.


I confess that I absolutely suck at online shopping.  It's just the unknown - I have no idea if I'm going to like it in person or if it's going to fit... so I just don't do it.  Not to mention that I hate the post office so the idea of returning a package gives me the shudders.  I don't really mind this though because I save a lot of money!

I confess that I found season 1 of Scandal to be beyond cheesy.  I started watching it this weekend because I mean, everyone and literally everyone is obsessed with this show.  I could NOT get into the first few episodes.  I found myself cringing through some of the scenes because it just seemed like the actors were trying way too hard.  I'm glad I hung on though because I've since started season 2 and I think it's so much better!


I confess that I'm not a big fan of GIF's.  I'm almost scared to share that because I think I'm going to get a lot of hate from it!  I just can't focus when I'm reading a blog with like 20 of them in one post... it hurts my head.  I definitely know I'm in the minority on this one!

That feels good to get off my chest!  Thanks to Kathy at Vodka and Soda for hosting!

  1. SUPER jealous of your hair, it always looks fabulous and I can't believe you've trained it to only need to be washed a few times a week. *I wish*... my hair gets so gross after a day even :-P

  3. GIRL - good to know about the sushi!!!

    And I am so with you about the GIFs... Not into them! Some are funny, but a bunch in one post is too much sometimes!

  4. Love your confessions! I'm with you on the hair thing - and it is a HUGE time saver not washing it every day!! Batiste is always my go-to dry shampoo! Dorothy is so wise - no sushi on the weekends!!!

  5. I've heard about the hair thing. My hair is thick, so I can get away with washing it once a week, which is good because blowing and flat ironing this hair more than that would NOT be fun!

    Omg on the sushi comment - I had no idea! I don't blame you.

    I've learned to love online shopping because it's just easier with the kids, I only shop at the stores that I can return in-store because I'm not going to pay postage or go to the post office #nothanks

    And I hate GIF's too lol - I don't like all of the pictures moving while I'm trying to read - it's a little annoying!

    Happy Humpday! xo

  6. Ok, I'm gonna need to try your dry shampoo! I wish I could only wash my hair 1 or 2 a week! That would save me so much time! And I am the same way with my IG photos!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yay that you joined confessions, this will become your favorite post all week! I need to get my hair trained like yours - my problem is I ruin it during workouts!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Haha I totally do the not letting people over thing too! Unless you catch me on an overly nice day then I'll let someone over. I'm definitely a total hypocrite there, oh well. I keep saying I'm going to try to be nicer when driving but it never happens! And I'm totally with you on the hair thing!

  9. Too funny about the GIFs - I know what you mean about instagram...sometimes my photos aren't even as close to pretty as half of the people that I follow and that drives me insane!! The sushi thing is a little weird...not gonna lie I'll eat it any day of the week - and RKOBH totally watch the show and love it!!

  10. I'm glad you are watching Scandal!! I love it!

  11. So glad you stuck with Scandal! I'll admit it can be cheesy, but that is my show and Olivia Pope is my girl. I mean, can't we all be her? And have her wardrobe? And my little sister is the first to call me out on my self-proclaimed road-rage, and the Charlotte-metro area is notorious for terrible traffic. P.S. I love your instagram!

  12. LOL. I was going to say I think that instagram picture looks pretty good! I see flowers and am easily impressed :) I have food anxiety (I'm not sure if that's a thing, but that's what I call it), so I will probably never eat sushi because it's raw... but if I ever DID decide to eat it, I will make sure it's not a Sunday, haha.

  13. whew where do I start here- agree with the GIFs thing when it's overdone (I get ADD) haha, Don't watch Scandal, love your Instagram OCD (and now I'll think of it every time I see a pic from you) and I def agree with you about the hair!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I am dying laughing about your RKOBH Sushi confession. I don't eat Sushi, but I specifically remember Dorothy saying that on the show. Don't worry, you're not alone in watching that one. I'm glad you finally got into season 2 of Scandal! I promise it gets better.

  15. TOTAL hypocritical driver here myself too. Especially in Chicago. It drives me crazy when people use the express lane to jump in front of the line or when people are merging and speed to the end of the ramp to get on up there when we are crawling. Man, I don't miss it. I'm sure people up here in Wisconsin don't like my Chicago driving ;)

  16. I like gifs but I agree there is a point of overkill. Your sushi thing made me laugh. And if you really are that way about your IG you might really be the perfect case study for a Type A personality!!

  17. Batiste is my absolute favorite dry shampoo! I've been using the Blush scent but that Diva one looks interesting. I only wash my hair twice a week and use very little products other than the dry shampoo.

    ReplyDelete
  18. yay! i love confessions. that is so true about training your hair, i used to wash every day, now i can almost go monday-friday which sounds gross but its not. and i dont use dry shampoo, because i am too cheap to buy it.
    omg yes the driving? me exactly. i'm all like im not letting you in! and then why wont someone let me in? just get over it people! lol.
    hahaha instagram. i am not a good instagrammer, though i have deleted photos before but i dont think i am as OCD about it haha. that picture is cute ;)
    i havent watched scandal, maybe i need to start!

    1. and now i feel bad about my usage of gifs. im sorry for hurting your head :(

  19. gifs all the live long day!! i love them :) i know some people can't stand them and that's ok.

    i only wash my hair about 2-3 times a week as well. i don't even use dry shampoo between days...since i switched to all natural shampoo, i don't even need to wash every day and my hair never gets gross/oily either. i really do think that the chemicals and shit in regular shampoos sold at the drug stores make your hair all gross so you're forced to wash it every day.

    thanks for linking up!

  20. I am SOOO glad I started skipping washes, it's awesome!! I think it's great you can go that long, I am at every other day, 2 at the most. Working on it. Um, you are not alone on the GIF's. I can't concentrate focus either haha!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm the same with my hair... Although I feel like dry shampoo doesn't work very well for me. Maybe I need to visit that link...!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I get the GIF thing. I try to keep it at a minimum or keep some that aren't too SPASTIC - if they are on a repeat that's so quick, it makes me nauseated a bit.
    That's funny you get so critical over IG - I tend to it that sometimes but then just know I want to save memories :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm with you on the hair washing. I can't go long because it gets greasy quick, but it's long and takes fooooooorever to do. I've been using batiste for a few years and absolutely love it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I dont wash my hair every day either seriously no time for that!
    ew I am definitely taking that into consideration when buying sushi now!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't wash my hair much either!! Never have. Totally grossed my husband out when we were married due to lack of washing it! Ha! It's so much easier!!

    And online shopping-- I want to so badly but I'm there with you. It has to had a bajillion reviews and be specific so it's like I actually shopped it myself.

    And the driving- love!

    ReplyDelete
  26. You are so on top of your non hair washing game! I'm so jealous. I can't go that long without washing mine, not because it gets dirty but because it is curly/wavy and I will look like a homeless person. Your hair always looks so fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I am totally OCD about my instagram photos!! They have to be perrrfect! lol!!

  28. Love these confessions! I WISH I could train my hair. That is a gift! I'm with you on too many gifs too!

    ReplyDelete
  29. On the hair thing, I think the products we apply are what weights down our hair so that it "feels" dirty. However, my hair is baby fine and I need the volume the products offer. Otherwise, my hair is perfect, it does what I ask it to do, but I'm finding I am lacking patience to sort it all out 3-4 times a week. And, on the GIF's...yuck. Driving in any big city is a challenge, I just blame it on all the international people who don't know our politeness. Funny post, totally enjoyed reading it. xx's

  30. Your Instagram confession cracks me up! Which makes me think I am not following you! What's your insta name?

  31. The Batiste for Brunettes is my favorite dry shampoo ever. I will never stray from it.
    I have to agree that the first couple episodes of Scandal were pretty bad, but I pushed on and I'm SO glad I did. I love that show and I don't want it to end.

    1. RHBK is the best. I need Dorothy (and no-sushi Sundays) in my life hah. Is it still on?? I hear you on the gif's. I totally love them (sometimes), but it's like wandering through an amusement park when it is gif overload. Happy hump day!

  33. Don't worry - I watch Rich Kids too, it's actually hilarious and I think they have really good / sarcastic senses of humor which I love ;) And I'm the same way about my Instagram!! Totally obsessive about it - has to be perfect! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ok I really really need to learn more about training your hair. I really can't go more than 2 days without washing it because it's fine, thin and looks greasy. Oddly, it makes it a day or so longer if I curl it...doesn't get as greasy for some reason. You're the second person to mention "training" it lately so I have to try it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh my gosh I'm the SAME way about IG pictures!! Helene In Between did a post about Instagram that is hilarious and I totally relate to almost all of them, I def suggest reading it for a good laugh! :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I over analyze the pics I do and don't put on Instagram, too! I'm glad I'm not the only one :-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oo yes dry shampoo is the best! And that's actually the same brand I use and love! The only reason I wash my hair every other day still is b/c to me dry shampoo doesn't help with sweaty hair after a hard workout.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Man, I WISH I sucked at online shopping! And I'm a driver hypocrite too. Although every now and then I decide its good karma to let someone merge.

  39. I am totally with you on the GIFs, I mean I love a good one every now and then but I defo suffer from GIF overload in some posts! I swear by batiste as well, although it's mainly because I'm too lazy to wash my hair most mornings.. Training your hair sounds genius though!

    Molls xx

  40. I'm obsessed over my ig too, so much that I don't post pics of me, except my profile. Don't know why, guess privacy who knows...yet ill post on blogger and ig is more private than that!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh my I obsess over instagram too! It's a real problem... I don't like to overwhelm people's feeds, so if I'm going to post, I want it to be good!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't do a lot of online shopping either because I feel like I have to try on clothes before I buy them. And I've heard so many good things about the Batiste dry shampoo, I've got to try it! It's awesome you've been able to train your hair {which seems completely weird to type, btw}.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I hate GIFs too!! And online shopping, well I'm the queen of putting things in my cart and never making the purchase. There is just too much that can go wrong and then I'll be spending way more time fixing the problem (returning, exchanging) than if I just went to the store in the first place.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Hahaha. I honestly don't understand how people buy things online and they always fit. Online shopping and I don't go together. And I died laughing through the whole sushi and instagram thing. That's awesome!
