hair mask

Guys I am so excited to try this! While in Australia, I decided I wanted to give my hair a break. I’ve pretty much been dying, bleaching and styling my hair since…well I don’t even know when, probably since middle school. Especially when working full-time, I always woke up, showered, blow dried and styled my…

desummber thoughts

OMG! I have been neglecting my “blog”. Oops. I started working part-time so I have less boredom time to spend on fancy blog posts! The job is great, and working downtown (Aussies call it the CBD – Central Business District) is very festive with Christmas approaching. It is still so strange to have Christmas during…

dandenong

This is going to be a short post, because I just want to share images. We visited the Dandenong Ranges this week, which are just an hour north of our place. From the gorgeous Sanctuary of William Ricketts with beautiful sculptures, to a hike we did afterwards in the forest. It was filled with birds; scarlet-colored…

We’ve had a fun couple of weeks. We did the Melbourne Cup – which was the fanciest race with most insane fashion I’ve ever seen! We also did a Halloween night (Aus doesn’t really get into Halloween like the USA does) and went to a theme park that was having a haunted night. Aaaand then this…

Still in awe…just the overall feeling of this country is so exciting and positive (which is refreshing coming from election time in the USA!). We’re loving it here. This weekend I planned a…

3 worth-it hair products

*insert Fifth Harmony – Give It To Me, I’m Worth It* A lot of the time, I’ll see a product online or on instagram and think I NEED it, and I usually end up talking myself out of it because it’s too expensive – which is actually the majority of the time. “What if I…

lots of firsts

Well it’s been quite the haul, but we are finally in our new apartment. Believe it or not, this was Robbie and I’s first flight(s) together, ever! We never really traveled back in the USA. There is so much that is so different about living here. Then again, sometimes I don’t even feel like we are…
