The Holiday Season & A Starbucks Obsession : The struggle IS real.

Tis the season for all the delicious treats you can get at starbucks for a limited time. My favorite happens to be one that you can have ALL year round. Cinnamon Dolce Latte. YUM. I don’t know about your but the baristas definitely use too much syrup (just my opinion) SO when I order a venti I usually get the latte with half the amount of pumps they do for flavor… Its usually 6…I do 2 1/2 -3. Another favorite is a Cafe Miso which is just coffee with steamed milk, made however you want it…then I sprinkle cinnamon on top. I just love cinnamon.  If you don’t want the calories of the latte you can always get a americano or coffee with 1-2 pumped of flavoring in it!! plus you feel better about your healthier choice!

Not only is it the season of yummy delicious starbucks treats but it is also the time of year when all of my friends get together for our “Friends Christmas Holiday Party” which happens to be THIS SATURDAY!!!! How did this come up so fast????? I love this time of year. Friends, family, baking, decoration, shopping, gifts, and memories! All of us are bringing something different.

You only live once, so live it BLONDE

I don’t know about you BUT … hair appointments happen to be one of my favorite things. Every six weeks I look forward to fresh color and sometimes a trim (if I have to). I have always been the girl who always wants something new done with my look. I can get very bored with my look so the first thing that changes is my hair. I have been Brunette, black (never again), redhead, dirty blonde, platinum blonde, ombre, you name it I have probably done it. Within the passed 2 years I have stuck with the blonde…lightening it…darkening it…and ombre. I have never loved and stayed with a hair color so long and I’m quite proud of myself.

Here are some pictures of todays masterpiece :

Once you find that dream colour there is no going back. 


Some things I have come to realize becoming a blonde:

1. Being Blonde is addictive. 

2. The thought of dying your hair any other colour is scary. 

3. People always ask if your a natural blonde. (no, no I am not) 

4. Sure…some people think that blondes are dumb BUT you know the truth. 

5. There will always be haters.

6. We pretty much can pull off any colour.

7. They say blondes have more fun…it might be true.

8. Guys might say they prefer brunettes but you know what? they don’t really know what they want. 

9. Blonde goes with everything.

10. If you can keep your blonde healthy – hold onto it forever.


^ When it comes down to it…do what makes you happy.

Be blonde, brunette, red, back or even purple. Stay confident and beautiful.



What is your favorite thing about your hair?


Baby steps … first blog post!

I have decided to make a blog that will follow my lifestyle, the things I love, my work, my friends and family and everything that comes with it. A few of my friends and family members have blogs which have inspired me to begin my own blogging journey! I understand now that life gets very busy and can be hard to stay connected with everything and everyone…so a blog is one way to stay connected and be able to look back on life events and memories!  and I am a rookie to this world so bare with me for a while when it comes to posting but excited to begin my blogging journey!


Until then! Pinterest has been very helpful on my journey to my first step, which was…creating a blog 🙂
