My Hair Dye Experience: The Good, Bad, and Ugly

Hair is a touchy subject. It’s something we want a lot of control over, but we ultimately have to give up that control and trust a stylist to give us what we want – I don’t know about you, but I always get a little anxious when I have to cut or color my hair. We’ve all had our fair share of bad haircuts. We go in expecting one thing and we come out looking like a hot mess. But this post isn’t about haircuts, it’s about coloring your hair. Like most people who have colored their hair, there are both positive and not so positive experiences. In this post I go through my hair journey and how I eventually took the plunge and dyed my (almost) black hair to a silvery grey.  Continue Reading

Turning 25

Well, it’s official. I’m in my mid-20s. Some may say that when I turned 24, I had already entered my mid-20s, but I still identified as someone in their early-2os. Now that I’m 25, it’s hard to refute that statement anymore. There are some benefits with being 25. I can now rent a car without paying a huge insurance fee…and that pretty much sums it up. In this post, I talk about how it feels to be one year older and how life is like in your mid-20s.  Continue Reading

I wanted to keep my look casual and comfortable, so keep reading if you want to see my go-to comfy, but still presentable outfit.  Continue Reading

Spring Layers

Spring isn’t officially here, but it certainly feels like it here in California! It’s finally sunny and warm and with Daylight Savings, it’s bright until 7:30 PM! Leaving work while it’s still sunny outside is one of the best feelings – it makes the 45 minute commute home so much more enjoyable. With the warmer weather, I’ve been shedding my usual coat for some lighter layers.  Continue Reading

Two-Toned Jeans for the MoMA

I’ve been wanting to go to the MoMA SF since it reopened last year, but never got around to it until a few weeks ago. I wasn’t aware just how big the MoMA, but it is huge and you can easily spend a whole day wondering around the museum and not see everything it has to offer. Since I was on my feet the whole day and walking around, I wanted to wear a comfy outfit.  Continue Reading
