I got my hair done a couple days ago and I have been wanting to buy this Oribe Smooth Style Serum for a few months and finally bit the bullet. It smells like heaven on earth and I love the way it makes my hair super soft and smooth without being greasy or adding too much shine.

My other favorite hair product that does an awesome and similar job is this one. It’s fabulous for detangling the worst knots (in mommy or kiddie hair) and leaves hair soft and smooth, detangled, and with no greasy or filmy buildup.

With food, normally I don’t gravitate toward smooth foods because I love texture. Crunchy, chewy, crumbly, layers, contrasts. Texture is where it’s at for me.


I can even hang with near jar breaker status snacks like these little peas, and I loved every tooth-chipping second.

However, I’m willing to make an exception for these smooth foods…

“Spicy Doritos” Cheezy Dip (Vegan, GF, Soy-Free)

“Cheater’s” Guacamole (Vegan, GF, Soy-Free)

Chocolate Mousse (5 Minutes, 4 Ingredients, Raw, Vegan, GF)

Caramel Pumpkin Whip Dip (GF)

Chocolate Coconut Cashew Butter (Vegan, GF, Soy-Free)

Creamy Cookie Butter White Chocolate Banana Smoothie

Vanilla Avocado Banana “Ice Cream” (Vegan, GF). Don’t knock it til you try it.

Do you like smooth foods?

Although I do love texture, sometimes smooth is preferable.

Without a doubt, I prefer smooth peanut butter to crunchy.

Any hair products that you love for smoothing your hair? Or products you love in general?

If I don’t put something in my hair, it’s straight in some places but wavy in others, frizzy and fly-aways in other places, so I need something to smooth it and make it uniform so I have one hairstyle rather than three going on.

  1. Yes, you gotta have a little crunch! Although the tooth chippers do concern me a bit. Especially Nature Valley bars- so not tasty enough to lose a tooth over. That Doritos dip- oh, my!

  2. Would love to try the avocado chocolate mouse…
    I’ve heard about it, and it looks amazing!!

  3. LOL do i like smooth foods? hmmm. I can tell you I do not like smooth ice cream. See, here’s my theory (and I know you’ll like this) if I’m going to eat ice cream, you know all those calories, there should be chunks of heaven in there. Candy, nuts, nut butters, coconut, etc… You feel me girl?
    have a sunny, fabulous weekend.
    send me some sun loveee

  4. I love the Lanza Healing Strength Serum and it smells fab.

  5. Morrocan Oil changed my life!!!
    You must try it!

  6. Oooo I want to try some new hair care products, but right now I’m loving Aveda Smooth Infusion…so nice!!


  7. I’ll take chunky peanut butter over smooth peanut butter anyway, unless it’s a plain PB&J on white bread with grape jelly- then it needs to be smooth, to recreate the memories I have of sandwiches like these at camp. Oh, and it needs to be squished, like it was at camp when I was a kid!

  8. I clicked the link for Creamy Cookie Butter White Chocolate Banana Smoothie- which brought me to the cookie butter (which I can’t get :( then I scrolled down to the fabulous photos in aruba and big, big :) Beautiful!!
    Hmm…a product I am loving at the moment- Paul Mitchell baby don’t cry, smells good, great shampoo and can be used as bubble bath!

  9. That Doritos Dip sounds incredible!!

  10. The dips sound wonderful, I still need to try the coconut cashew dip. Since I went back to naturally curly, I’ve been using a lit of cheap hair products from Target after reading Mama Pea’s post on curly hair since they don’t have a lot of the ingredients that weight down or dry out curls. So far so good, my hair has been much smoother and rocking better curls. :-)

    • Glad you’re rocking the natural wavy hair and it’s working for you. Now if you could find some fave running shoes, you’ll be all set. That sucks about your faves being discontinued. That happened to me before I started wearing Nike Vomero’s. They discontinued another old fave and that’s how I ended up with Vomeros and have been wearing them for about 3-4 years now and happy, but it was a lucky break they fit my feet well. LMK what you end up with!

  11. Averie, I finally got around to making the chocolate mousse. I thought about it every time I had a super ripe avocado, just never happened to make it. WHAT was I waiting for? Absolutely amazing! I could kiss you!
