My CHI-tah, my friend


My last CHI was a hand me down from a friend. It came to me in good/fair condition but during the time I put a roof over its head it decided to start a slow death. A very sad, slow, miserable death. One that required tape to hold the ON switch in place, one where the heat started to generate slower and slower than ever meaning I had to crank up the heat notch all the way. Since I don't straighten or curl my hair and require its uses every day, I'd been able to survive. I know, such a troublesome life I lead.

Per usual routine in our house, Hunter and I have the hardest time holding off from gifting whatever we purchased for one another for whatever holiday it is intended for. Exhibit A is the pictorial evidence above. My Hunter Bear, bless his heart, couldn't contain himself more than 2 days once he made the move to get a hold of the neon CHI-TAH. I will say my Bear knew, with so many events upcoming and reasons to actually do my hair and look more presentable, the early gift would be appreciated. Not only by me but the many who must interact with me and may prefer to look at good hair.


This is a quality tool. I do not simply say this because of the shameful state my previous one came to be in, but really and truly this CHI gives you the opportunity to create stylish hair and look fabulous while doing so! Win-Win, my friends. As always, the heat generates quickly and evenly, and you're able to style your little heart away. I just L-O-V-E this fabulous design more than anything. My hand me down was a basic black CHI. Anyone who knows me well (aka my Bear :)) knows I'm much more wild and wonderful than that ;) Also, the cord on this thing is fantastic. It is quite long and even more so from my previous one. If you're someone like myself who likes to post up in front the tv with your mirror and tools to get it done sometimes, then this is something to get happy over. It extends so far that if you're also trying to do a couple last things around the house whilst getting glammed, you are set. Of course don't do too much while holding a hot tool; no one likes singed ears, fingers or hair.

Just check out the sleekness starting right at the roots. It lasted all day through travel, heat, humidity-aka the devil's breath, and several other factors/ wannabe obstacles. Boommmmm.

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Change Has Arrived

New adventures lie ahead.  I've left my full time job in college admissions and am now full time into mine and Hunter's business.  I'm working on a few other ventures so when I know more I'll follow up on that.

I spent 6 years working at my last job and while I always knew I would go to my business full time eventually, it hasn't truly hit me that I'm not just taking some vacation time and spending a few days away.  I'm ready for my new normal though.

It's times like this I love having a lifestyle blog.  I'll look back on this post at some point and the thoughts had, the feelings felt will all come back.  This is a big milestone, leaving a corporate type job and going full speed as a small business owner.  Yay!!

I've got big plans for the next.  Excited for what's to come.



Let's meet again,

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:
