So nobody every warned me, and now I am going to warn you… Red hair is TOUGH to remove guys. This is not something you should do on a whim (like i did)!! It is expensive and time consuming to try to go back to my original color of dirty blonde 🙁 It’s okay, being a strawberry blonde/ redhead is V fun, but i feel…

The weather has been just glorious! It always feels like I’m missing something without having a coat to carry, but i DO NOT miss it! I spent the…

Casual Mint W/ Claudie ♥

There’s nothing greater than rediscovering spring clothes – especially since mine were once my “year round” clothes. It’s much easier to dress cute when it’s warmer outside, that’s for sure. I’ve been feeling really sick lately, I am hoping it’s just seasonal allergies, or a cold that’s going to pass. What do allergies even feel like, and do you guys get them? We snapped these…

Fruity Spring Feels

WOW is Spring incredible. I’ve never really felt it before in my adult life – maybe a few years back when I lived in Brooklyn, but I don’t remember it. It’s like… one day you just KNOW, now it’s Spring, and everyone ditches their jackets and wears sweaters and dresses and walks around outside for hours and hours. I truly feel like a little kid…

They just don’t get…

Beachside Sunset Coffee

Daylight savings is a good investment, in my opinion. You feel extra sleepy for a few days and waking up is more of a struggle but the trade off is huge. A full two hours of sunlight after work!! It feels quite delightful to walk around my neighborhood and watch the sunset… and will be wonderful for the blog as well 🙂 Matt brewed us…
