I can’t believe I went three months without a blogging break! By the beginning of March, I started feeling weirdly stressed out, and I couldn’t figure out why until I looked back and realized that the last time I took a week off was around Christmas.
I got to do some nice, de-stressful things, like:
-taking Moxie for a long hike. It would have been longer, but we came across a small group of deer, which scared the pants off Moxie.
-dyeing my hair brown. I’ve been blonde for the last decade, so it was time for a change! I like this color a lot, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the new color affects my makeup and hairstyles. Already I’m getting tons of inspiration from Christina of New Darlings. I might be doing an adapted tutorial of her signature bun soon.
-getting ice cream. My friend Nic and I have a little sugar challenge going. Every time one of us has a sweet, we have to pay the other $10. However, if we have a sweet together, it cancels out. So we got some good, good ice cream from Jeni’s over the weekend. I’m still thinking about my Roxbury Road sundae.
-watching the new My Brother, My Brother, and Me show. I’m a little late to the game, but I finally watched a few episodes of MBMBaM’s new series. Two things: it’s hilarious and I’m now super attracted to Travis McElroy…or maybe just his beard.
-shopping with my mom. We spent a day at the mall, mostly at Lush. That place is a hell of a sensory experience. I never want to leave.
-inventing games for Moxie. I tried making an obstacle course for her in my tiny studio apartment, but she didn’t really understand the concept. I also tried hiding treats all over, but she just sat in the middle of the room until I took them out for her. Brat.
What have you guys been up to?

First of all, I LOVE your new hair color! It looks awesome with your skin tone, and turned out super cute!
Second, I for one would love an adapted tutorial on Christina’s bun. She has the best hair ever, and her bun is totally bun goals. However, my hair is much shorter, and I’m guess not nearly as thick as her’s, so I am always left with a tiny baby bun when I try things like that. I have tried to figure out how to make a big beautiful bun, but have mostly failed miserably.
Thanks! it’s quite close to my natural color so I think it suits me a little better than bleach blonde did!
And this week I’ll be putting up a tutorial! My hair is really fine (thanks to a year of bleach), but it’s still possible to get a really big, full bun. I think I’ll have the post up Wednesday.

Really cute top! Where is it from?
Thanks! I thrifted it a while back, but it’s originally from H&M.

I love this lace top and black tie combination! So preppy, yet pretty and feminine too. Also- I’ll say it again- your new hair colour suits you really well.
Thank you! I found the idea on Pinterest and now I’m obsessed!
I love this top, white lace is one of my weak spots. Also, I love Jeni’s ice cream! They opened a location near me and I loooove the Brown Butter Almond Brittle, but lately the Gooey Butter Cake flavor is my favorite.
Oh man, they didn’t have Gooey Butter Cake here! That sounds amazing!!
Love your outfit…It looks awesome on you 🙂
