Jason Wahler Is Going To Be A Dad

Val and I love hearing about baby stories. As a TTC couple, we get excited when we hear pregnancy announcements just like when we heard that " The Hills” star Jason Wahler and his wife Ashley, are expecting their first baby!  Though the funny thing is, Jason and Ashley found out they were expecting on the same day that Jason's ex and former Hills co-star Lauren Conrad  announced that she was pregnant .  Source: https://www.instagram.com/ashleywahler In an even more interesting twist, the pregnancy announcement news was preceded by some crazy marriage timing as well.

And this is not just about our love for our special someone but our love for everything and everyone including ourselves.  This February, take time to take care of your own appearance and since our hair is on top of our body, it is pertinent that we start with it.  Here are a few tips in maintaining a healthy hair. ·          Observe good hygiene all the time – regularly wash your hair to remove dirt and grimes ·          Be extra careful whenever combing your wet hair – your hair is vulnerable to breakage during this period. ·          Use towel to dry off your hair after shower – Using hair dryer can cause damage to your hair; if you must use the heat then do so sparingly. ·          Eat the proper nutrition - Our hair is also dependent on what we eat.
