As some of you may know, I don't really care for holidays once Halloween passes. The only thing that excites me this time of year is the fact that I get to give everybody I love presents...

Ignorance Isn't Bliss

I have always admired my younger sister, Carina. We are 3 years apart but have always been very close growing up. Our friendship strengthened in high school and we've grown exceedingly closer after the death of my dad two years ago (continue reading below)

She is basically the polar opposite of me; she doesn't care about dressing a certain way or doing her makeup all that much. She is extremely intelligent, got the book smart genes, an outgoing personality, and the ability to talk to strangers with absolute ease. She is overflowing with confidence and I can't think of a time she has ever shuttered from embarrassment. She is always up to date on current events and very open-minded. Not to mention she is one of the most mentally and emotionally strongest people I know for only just turning 20. She has always had her shit together, and now, on top of her being a full time student and working 40 hours a week, she has decided to start a blog! Unlike mine, she will not be sharing what she's wearing or what products she's currently using but her personal thoughts and feelings (of which I agree with) about the world and its many imortant issues. If you believe in awareness, gender equality, women's rights, bettering the future of our educational systems and environment, I guarantee you will enjoy her blog. Here is her second and most recent post shedding some light on the word SLUT

My Hair Journey

If you've followed me for a while now you know that I have just recently undergone a major hair change. I never expected to leave my black locks because I felt like lighter hair, and colors in general, don't suit me well. Although, I had thought about taking the plunge for over a year before I actually did it because there were so many things to consider. Like which hair stylist could I trust to actually get the job done without damaging my hair or dragging out the process. I was reluctant until I spoke to Brittney Conkle of Lillie Monroe Studio in Huntington Beach, California. My natural hair color is dark brown, close to black but not close enough for me to have avoided box dying it black in high school. I wanted the process done quickly, mostly because I'm impatient, and because I wanted to blog about it! She started off with a strand test to make sure my hair would cooperate and it did so we took the plunge! After 3 visits (in about one month's time) we did it and I walked out of there with nothing but a trim. Since then, I have undergone multiple hair changes with Britt and will continue to do so. She's my forever hair fairy, I'll never trust anyone else with my hair ever again. If you want to get your hair done by Brittney (and trust me, you do) you can book an appointment by emailing Brittneyhallsb@yahoo.com

Below is a little breakdown of what the process looked like up until my most recent color.
