New Year, New Hair!! [Pic Heavy]

Hey everyone! Long time now post! One of my new year resolutions for 2015 is definitely to blog more and post more on YouTube! I've never done anything dramatic to my hair but I wanted 2015 to be different! I wanted a change and decided to go all out with changing up my hair. I've had long hair my entire life and wanted a fresh look so I decided to chop off 18 inches! Here are some of my progress hair pictures from 2014.  

This picture was taken in August 2014. Since it was still the Summer time I wanted to go a little lighter for the season so James lightened my hair!

This pic was from October 2014. You can see from the previous picture that the color is a little darker. I didn't change up my hair much besides trimming the ends, thinning the inside of my hair and darkening/toning up my hair!



As you can tell from the pics I was having a little to much fun taking pics that I ended up giving myself a little hair photoshoot! haha


This is the shortest my hair has EVER been and am sooo in love!! I don't know why I was so hesitant chopping off my hair! My hair feels so much lighter and it makes me look more mature and less weighed down! If anyone is ever in the West Hollywood area & is in need of a haircut/color change, James is your guy!! <3

Love With Food Box (Flower Power Edition)

Hey everyone! This is going to be a review on the April Love With Food subscription box. Love with Food is only $$10 a month and you get 8 yummy snacks.  For every box spent, they donate a meal to a child in need. I really enjoyed this box as everything in it was gluten-free and low in transfat. Because of this box, I was able to try out so many variety of snacks that I have never even heard of! 

Check out the Love For Food website: Click Here

Here is what was included in this box:
 MELI Honey Waffle

 RIGONI DI ASIAGO Fiordifrutta Organic Fruit Spread

 BUMBLEBAR Organic Energy Bar



 sENSIBLE FOODS Orchard Blend 

 sAHALE SNACKS Almonds with Cranberries, Honey + Sea Salt 

 VINTAGE BEE Creamed Honey with Chocolate Mint

What do you guys think of the Love With Food box? Would you guys get it? I couldn’t think of anything I didn’t like about the box! I love the concept of getting yummy treats every month! I’m pretty sure I’ll be purchasing another box very soon. : )

Much love,

Nail Shop Paris Episode 7 Nail Art Tutorial ♡

Hey everyone! I truly apologize for neglecting my blog, but I am back and I'll try to post more often!! A month ago I was contacted by Dramafever asking if I was interested in doing a collaboration between them and fellow nail bloggers. They wanted me to create a nail tutorial that was inspired by an episode in the Korean drama Nail Shop Paris. Being a fellow kdrama addict and nail art lover, I quickly took up on the opportunity. My design was inspired by two manicures featured in episode 7 and the main reoccurring hot pink nail color. This nail design turned out to be really pink and girly and I really like the outcome of it! This episode was one of the most touching out of the drama as the manicure was suppose to be for the halmoni (grandma). Hope you guys enjoy! ^^
