As a bleach blonde, I’m often prone to having yellow tones in my hair. Purple shampoo has been a lifesaver the many years I’ve been coloring my hair blonde. But, sometimes purple shampoo is too harsh on my hair and just isn’t enough to get the job done. I was super intrigued when I received the opportunity to try Bond Angel Thermal Blond Anti Frizz Leave-in Spray.

I love memoirs. Even if I’m unfamiliar with the person prior to reading their memoir, I always find the story of someone’s life fascinating.

The mid-twenties to early-thirties is a confusing time. Some of us may be looking for homes in Indianapolis, while the rest of us don’t exactly know what we’re looking for.  If you fall into the latter category, you may be suffering from a quarter-life crisis.

Thankfully, my cat seems to be aging gracefully. He’s playful, curious, and still relatively active for his age. However, just like with people,

As a blogger first and an influencer second, I’m always looking for information that will help me master the art of influencer marketing.  And, let me tell you… there’s A LOT of information out there. Unfortunately, not all of the information is accurate, helpful, or easily accessible. That’s why I was intrigued when I heard about Joe Sinkwitz’s (the CEO of Intellifluence) book on influencer marketing. The Ultimate Guide to Using Influencer Marketing is for the newest and even the most clueless bloggers,

blog anniversary

July 29th, 2018 marks the two year anniversary of my blog. It’s crazy to think it’s been two years since I nervously hit that publish button for the first time. I’ve really stepped out of my comfort zone since then. This blog has given me the courage to open up in ways I’ve never imagined. You’ve seen my vulnerable side through posts about getting ghosted and finding ways to be happier.
