Saudade

The feeling is like knowing that the one person you would call and want to call isn’t there to pick up the phone. You scroll through your phone book in search of people to call when you just want to call 1 person because of the things they’d say to make you laugh when you…

CASA

I sit here on my chair listening to Florence and the Machine reflecting back on how today went and just feeling so grateful for everything in my life right now.. Today was quite the emotional roller coast. Today we had the annual CASA event at Square. This was my first one working. CASA is an…

Orchestrated Moments

Today was the first Monday I’ve had off in weeks. I’ve had maybe 2-3 Mondays off in the past couple of months due to the fact I’m always in the salon working for myself on Mondays and they tend to book up fast since it’s my 1 day to myself. But today was different I…

An Open Letter of Grief

It’s overcast and muggy out right now. I’m currently sitting in my underwear eating milk and cookies like I do almost every night lol. The funny part is that I’ll literally only have like 4-5 cookies and that’s enough to satisfy me. It’s monsoon season and with all the rain and clouds I’m feeling a…

Hair Views

With most life instances I go through, I like to connect them to metaphors and analogys to help me better understand the situations I’m in and what I may be going through. As of recently I’ve decided to really break down what being a hairstylist is like and what it feels like being in the…

Continued Education

Well It’s been a lonnnnng couple of weeks assisting! Let me just start off by saying that this has been no joke at alllll. I’ve been at Atelier for about a month now. I really was in for a rude awakening since starting to say the very least. To start this post off let me…

Reach High

This past week has been such an incredible week for me. As of last week I’m officially a part of the Square Salon family in Summerlin! I am beyond happy and beyond excited about this opportunity. I finally feel like life is starting to happen and everything is just coming together so beautifully. I’ll be…

Spring Mountain Ranch State Park

The other day I was feeling very spontaneous and just really wanted to get out of the house again and go to the mountains. There’s a place here near Vegas and near my house called “Spring Mountain Ranch State Park” that was home to many people starting in the 1800’s that I was very curious…

Hidden Blessings

So today was an amazing day sort of a moment of realization for me. Lets start by saying Sunday was a shitty day. I was driving up to Red Rock because I wanted to take my nephew to go see the mountains. He’s young and a kid so he has a tendency to play video…

Graduation

Well 1600 hours and I finally graduated from Paul Mitchell the School Las Vegas! It’s been a lonnnng year of not having a life just school. It was hard, I cried, I laughed I pushed to learn anything and everything I could while in school. I walked down the hall as Garth Brooks “Friends in…

Last Week of School

This week was my last week in school. On Tuesday I graduate from Paul Mitchell the school at 4:30pm. I cannot believe that I’m graduating already. It feels like just yesterday I started school.. This feeling is very bittersweet for me because I’m going to really miss school. I feel like I didn’t get enough…

25/26

I am so overwhelmed today with the amount of love and birthday wishes I’ve received! It’s been a good birthday so far. 25 taught me a lot about myself and the way others see me. I always wondered what people saw when they interact with me and I feel like I learned that and got…

2016: The year of memories

Oh what a year this one has been! This year was amazing for me! I didn’t do things much differently but the experiences at school and with people are what really made this year worth while for me and taught me many lessons. To start I started school at Paul Mitchell in February and now…

Peter Pan

So there’s this song that’s came out recently and it really hit home for me when I heard it.. Literally the minute it came on the radio it just really hit me because I could relate to every lyric. So here’s a little back story to me in case I haven’t said anything about it…

Circle 9: Treachery

Ok so this post might be a little weird because my thoughts with voting and politicians in general is a bit strange… On a day to day basis (for the most part) I think of heaven and hell.. I was brought up catholic, I completed my communion classes and everything. Till this day I do…

Accomplishments

So Nick and I have officially moved into our new place! I can’t explain the amount of different emotions I’m feeling from this move! I’m feeling nervous, scared, excited and so on. It’s such a big step for us and a really really big one too. I feel like I’m really liking this move so…

Hair from the heart

So today I did this kind lady’s hair named Janice.. Janice is a school teacher for middle school kids and she came in today to get her hair done for her son’s wedding next weekend. She had told me when we were walking to my chair that she hasn’t done anything to her hair in…

Love Academy

Lately I’ve been reflecting on the past. The way I’ve dealt with certain situations, people I’ve left behind, how I feel about it and how I’d react if I saw these people again. I realize more and more that growing up from the ages of 5-12 were the happiest years of my life. That innocence…

Demanding Schedule and Starting School

So these past 4 months have truly been a busy blur! As many of you know, I finally started beauty school I started at Paul Mitchell back in February and have been loving it thus far. I’ve come across some seriously amazing and talented people while in school. I became president for a product knowledge…
