Pink Bob Haircut

4

I’ve always loved coloring my hair but I’ve only colored the tips before. The first time was right before New Years Eve 2013 and I dyed the tips pink! The second time I used Garnier’s Color Styler (temporary) and it washed out with a few showers. This time, I went full throttle and had a professional salon dye my whole head! What a TASK!

I am naturally dark headed (the color of my eyebrows!) so Joleen at Hue Salon had to meticulously dye every root and tip of my head. After a ton of foiling (I could barely hold up my head it was so heavy!) I waited for my hair to turn blonde. It took 40 minutes! Here’s the process below:

The blonde hair was pretty cool. If I ever went that light I’d do a platinum. It really brightened up my face!

Next was the dye. I told Joleen I wanted any type of pink besides pastel (I feel like with my skin I would look washed out with pastels??) That took another 30-40 minutes but the end result was AMAZING. I had shown her a picture of Olivia Palermo’s wavy bob and she even curled/styled it for me at the end!

Valentine Chocolate Bark

1

Anytime I’m reminded of a holiday, the first thing that comes to mind is DESSERT! I don’t know why I associate desserts with holidays, but I think the best way to celebrate with family and friends is through food.

Now I’m no cook so I did not create this recipe. I actually found it on Bake at 350 blog! After reading the ingredients, I HAD TO MAKE IT. It’s not only tasty but extra colorful (and y’all know I love color!)

All you’ll need for this recipe is:

  • 2 bags white chocolate chips (I like Ghiradelli)
  • 2 bags bittersweet (or semisweet) chocolate chips (I still like Ghiradelli)
  • 2 cups Rice Krispies
  • conversation hearts or ANY Valentine Candy
  • sprinkles of all shapes and sizes!

Check out the finished product and find the recipe link at the end! I would recommend adding A LOT of rice krispies for extra crunch. I had more white chocolate than rice krispies so next time I make it, i’ll be sure to add the whole box for that extra crunch.

NYE Recap

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Who partied the night away? We totally did …and by party I mean we ate fondue in our jammies.

We. are. crazy.

I love the hope that a New Year brings. I am definitely a “resolution” setter and have a few resolutions I’d like to see happen for 2015:

  • Since we’ve been living our newlywed life in an apartment for almost 2 years, I’d like to invest in a piece of property this year! Whether it be a condo by the beach or a house with a backyard, I don’t care! I need the space before I drive myself insane! (and I’m talking about closet space here…)
  • I want to explore my city more. Living in Florida is a love/hate for me for many reasons: the weather (sunshine is not always my favorite and I want four seasons) proximity to family (6 hour drive home), and it’s very expensive to live here; however, I want to get out more and see what this city is all about. We live on the Emerald Coast in Santa Rosa Beach on the panhandle of Florida. 5 minutes from Destin and 5 minutes from 30A. Our area attracts more than 3 million tourists every year. It’s definitely a beautiful place to live.
  • I want to take more weekend trips to other cities around us, like New Orleans, Atlanta, Birmingham, Apalachicola, Miami, South Carolina and many, many others!
  • Lastly, I’d like to take 1 picture every day for 365 days. Just one picture that sums up my day. It doesn’t have to be interesting or high quality. I simply want something I can look back on to remember a specific moment of every day.
