A million suns won't fill you up

Wednesday, October 4, 2017

I've been so busy that I completely neglected getting my hair done and let me tell you, when you have a platinum blonde pixie cut -- you cannot miss your monthly hair appointment. My roots were four inches long and the side/back were completely devoid of color. I was feelin' like a wreck. Even if that looks is rather trendy.

While I was off hating my hair and wishing it was cold enough to wear beanies, I had been trying out a new Tea Tree Oil Shampoo that made me not hate the current state of my hair. I've somehow never found a shampoo that I love. But I have to say, I love this shampoo. It's chemical/parabens free and it's not tested on animals. With platinum hair, it's easy to have dry unhealthy looking hair, but this makes my hair soft, shiny, and healthy. As an added bonus, it smells amazing. You can thank the shampoo for my extremely good hair day I'm having in these photos.

This is a new(er) dress that I need to start wearing. Blue isn't my go to color, but the print is undeniable. I love a good strange print. Especially when pink is involved.

It's been forever since I've written one of these posts. Mostly because I haven't been watching much television, but hey, it's almost fall and all my shows are coming back and I'll have EVEN more to discuss!

I had no interest in this show beyond it had eight long seasons and Troian Bellsario's (Spencer Hastings from Pretty Little Liars)husband. I was pleasantly surprised by how well done every aspect of the show was. It's an overly dramatic drama set in a law firm where one of their top junior partners ins't even a lawyer.

We did it when we were young

I still have some photos left from my trip with Elana. These were taken on the day of the Solar Eclipse so, naturally, I had to wear this dress. These were taken at a coffee shop that I fell in love with. It was called Dripp and if I lived out in California, I would be a regular here. The shop was beautiful, the staff incredibly friendly, and this drink was unlike anything I have ever tried.

I don't think I've ever taken a set of photos sitting down, but Elana and I were feeling adventurous. We loved the setting of the outdoor area and the lighting was top notch. Plus this is such an old dress, y'all know what it looks like.

It's been really warm for the past week, but it's almost officially Fall! This weekend, my friends and I are kickin' Fall off with a trip to the Orchard. I cannot wait. Every single year we have tried to plan a trip, but something always happens. It snows, it rains, the apples are no longer able to be picked, it closed early, SOMETHING. So, this year, we decided to do it as soon as it was officially Fall. We are cliches!

No Control

I've been lusting after this dress for months, but I couldn't bring myself to drop $119 on a single item. My boyfriend surprised me with a ModCloth gift card for my birthday and I instantly knew I was going to buy this dress. Even better? I had a 40% off coupon and I scored this dreamy dress for under $45. It wasn't quite the material or colors I was expecting and I thought about returning it. But then...then I put it on and this dress was made for me. I would like to wear it every day.

I'm also wearing my very first pair of prescription sunglasses. I had no idea how great these would be! The sun is blocked and I can see! This is completely new to me. I really wish I had splurged on this before now.

We've been having pretty perfect fall weather and I am so here for it. In fact, I'm drinking a Pumpkin coffee right now. This dress won't be wearable for long, but I will be eagerly awaiting next season.
