The Truth About Bleaching Your Hair

So this week I made a mistake. I bleached my hair. Now from what I’ve read this is a common mistake that many of us will make at one point or another, which is why I’m writing this post. I want to beg and plead that you avoid bleaching your hair.

So let me give you a little background on my hair. I have very dry hair and I’ve worked so hard to keep my hair hydrated. I’m talking coconut oil, split-end treatments, deep conditioners and avoiding heat on my hair when I can. I must say, my hair has come a very long way and I’ve made my hairdresser very proud.

Now let me give you a little background on my hairdresser. I am very, very picky about who touches my hair. When I say I’ve tried pretty much everyone in Gainesville, you’re probably thinking I’m over exaggerating, but I’m really not. It has gotten to a point where I just stopped going at all and began cutting my own hair for maybe a year and a half (I gave myself the cutest bangs, too). Continue reading

On the Run

Errands, errands and more errands…

Sound familiar?

It’s been one of those days, so I decided to dress according to my mood: a little bit of attitude, a whole lot of comfort.

Leggings and my little black booties makes any day easier because it is one of those outfits that you can move in. And with a day like mine, it’s exactly what I needed.

I want to say the booties are from Brazil along with the shirt. The sunwear you can find at Forever 21. They have the best selection for a pretty low price.
