Short Hair Don’t Care. (okay, maybe I do a little)

May 20, 2015

Some of you may remember my nightmare of a hair situation awhile back. While I didn’t go into details then, I will tell you now that, long story short, my hair did not react well to color that had been applied to it and instead of it remaining blonde, it turned a hundred shades of GREEN and GRAY. (No exaggeration.) Now, I know that gray hair is “very in” right now (although I’d like to meet whoever claimed that fad…

My Style: Daytime Face

January 20, 2015

If I had to choose my daytime makeup celebrity inspiration (because that’s a thing, right?!), it would be Julianne Hough. I love the “fresh face with a pop” look during the day and prefer a minimal/light eye, light blush, and a bright lip. So my daytime makeup routine typically looks like this: under eye concealer, mascara, blush, and bright lipstick.  I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself ‘adventurous’ when it comes to makeup, in that I use the same items each time,…

My Style: Eyeglasses

January 13, 2015

Some of you may have noticed something different about me in last week’s post. The truth is, I have needed to wear eyeglasses for quite some time now. Like, how about since high school? I actually did have glasses (and wore them), until they broke my freshman year of college and I wasn’t about to wear them in public, what with only one “arm”, the correct term being: temple. (Alright, so maybe I did try to secretly wear them while on…

Anything’s Possible (when you’re on a boat)

July 12, 2014

I don’t know what it is, but anytime I’m on a boat and out on the water, I feel like royalty. (I also kick myself for not having made friends yet with someone who has a boat and can charter me around all summer.) (I also always think of the song “I’m On A Boat” which then, of course, makes me think of Michael Bolton as Jack Sparrow.) (I mean, RIGHT?!) But where was I. Oh yes, so on Thursday,…

Sky Zone: Time to Fly (+ a giveaway!)

July 10, 2014

So basically, X and I went flying on Tuesday. I mean, it was the closest thing to flying that I’ve ever done. I’m talkin’ about SKY ZONE, all. Sky Zone is an indoor trampoline park that offers a huge space with nothing but jumping room and lots of options and programs to get your jump on. Christian and I made the short drive to Sky Zone Elmhurst for a morning of jumping fun, which also quickly turned into the best workout ever. (We are…
