Happy Friday! This week has randomly been all about the link hops for some reason, so I figured I would finish it out with a bang… and another link hop!
Welcome to the Photography Friday Blog Hop! This is a blog linkup that focuses on photography, at any skill level or experience. Each week we want to encourage you to get out and take some photos! It doesn’t matter what camera you have – an iPhone, a DSLR, a film camera, an instax – just get out and press that shutter! Blog about your photographic awesomeness and link up here to share it every friday. If you’d like feedback on something, leave a comment asking what you’d like to know and your host will be happy to provide you with some.
Here are the three photos I’m linking up this week! They’re from the archives, but some of my absolute favs back from when I was a full-time concert brat. In order: Nine Inch Nails, Hedley, and Hot Hot Heat.
Each week we will choose a new Photographer to be featured! To be considered for next week, please link up your photography post below and make sure you are following your hosts & co-hosts. These two things will qualify you for being a featured photographer!
Jana from Tea Time Blog shared some incredible macro photos of a butterfly she happened across a while ago. I am just blown away at how intricate and detailed a butterfly is! And the story of how she happened across it is cute as well. Thanks so much for sharing, Jana!

So thanks to Influenster, I got the opportunity to review the new Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser line. I’m pretty rough on my hair – as evidenced by my long history of bleaching and dying the absolute crap out of it. My daily hair care routine is super simple, and basically consists of shampoo, conditioner, and a bit of moroccan oil.
A few weeks ago, Influenster sent out this super scientific looking mystery box, with three different types of unlabelled hair product. The idea was for everyone to review the samples without knowing what brand name they were. I used them all a few times over a week and actually really liked it – I was wrong in my guess of what brand it was, but whatever, so were a lot of bloggers!
After the mystery box was reviewed, Influenster sent out this mega box of full-size Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser products as the big reveal. I was surprised it was Garnier, but impressed with the product itself. Over the next week I replaced my usual shampoo and oil with the Garnier Damage Eraser shampoo, conditioner, split-end repair and hair bandage products.
One week later, my hair looked like this:
Super shiny and soft looking! It’s kind of a crappy Instagram photo, but you can see my split ends are back under control and my hair looks a lot healthier in general.
One thing I didn’t love about the Damage Eraser line is that there were so many products – four in total, which is a lot for me.
I usually spend five minutes in the shower doing my shampoo and conditioner thing. Using all four of these products easily expanded that to ten minutes, and I didn’t even leave the hair bandage product in for as long as it recommended.
Oh and PS: When I received the Vox box last week I did an unboxing video, which you can check out in all of its awkward glory below!
