    I loved the “Which American Girl are you?” – I got Samantha. :)

    The BuzzFeed article about shampooing was really interesting, too. I definitely need to pay more attention to what products I use in my hair.

    I really didn’t like the “8 Ways to Stop Overspending,” though. My biggest problem are my recent shift in lifestyle and retail therapy. It’s suggestion for how to not overspend with a change in lifestyle was along the lines of “You should’ve already been living below your means.” So it’s not really a fix, it’s something I supposedly should already be doing.

    The food dye thing does work depending on your problem. If you have brassiness in blonde hair, you can add blue or purple food dye to your shampoo and/or conditioner to get rid of it (I have done this before and it worked). I’ve had less success getting rid of green tones in blonde hair (using red food dye). I suspect it will work for green tones in brown hair, but in my experience you need beige to neutralize green tones in blondes. The effect is very gradual, so I doubt it could go very wrong for anyone. You’re essentially making a homemade tone-correcting shampoo/conditioner.
