Invest In Your Hair, It Is The Crown You Never Take Off

Back to the blondest of blonde balayages and I’m absolutely in love with how it turned out. It makes summer just that much more fun.

May Reading List

May Reads

#GirlBoss: After just finishing the Netflix series…. This is obviously the first priority to finish reading. AND because I can’t write anything about this book without including another quote from Amoruso because she’s AWESOME, “Dive headfirst into things without being too attached to the results.” There ya go.

The Beautiful & Damned: I’m absolutely obsessed with Fitzgerald, the “wonderboy of the twenties,” as he was so dubbed. There’s something about the midwest values that quietly manifest themselves in his big city dreams.

$100 StartUp: Ok, so first, Christ Guillebeau has a really amazing blog. Second, you absolutely need to check out this post here. It answers that big question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Inside of placing your focus in one area… It shows the benefits of exploring many and really dives into how we can become more innovative. I’ve also been trying to understand what makes people well-rounded and diverse in all sorts of different life aspects. It was fascinating to read that those individuals with infinite interests and professions “had all designed lives that provided them with three common elements: money, meaning, and variety—in the amounts that were right for them.” Just read the post.

I grew up in Cincinnati. 17 years later and I still hadn’t wandered down to Findlay Market. Every other thing that you’re supposed to cross off your hometown bucket list was complete. Sometimes it takes a trip back home and a weekend as a tourist to see a city in a completely different light. I’ll save that hometown rant for another day… 🙂

Cruisin’

Taking on #PlaidNation decked out in blue. I’m pretty sure no one would let me near the RBC Heritage with the amount of holes in my jeans and shirt. Not golf appropriate. Jeans, purchased the pants with tears in them. Shirt, notsomuch… That bad boy didn’t have a rip in it at the day of purchase. It did, however, have a crease. A crease that needed to be ironed. Did you know that you aren’t supposed to iron silk? Take it from experience that it doesn’t work. I had to iron out the other side to make it match so it would look like it was intentionally purchased shredded. 

Lesson learned. Read the care instructions.

North is Just a Direction

The South is home. Or at least it became home. I think I’m still too born and bred midwest for all y’all southerners to claim me. However, home is the place where your family lives. Mine just happened to get smart and migrate towards warmer weather. Clearly I wasn’t born with the brains.
