Love or Loathe

It’s 10:00pm and it’s freezing tonight. It’s 40 outside and I almost feel as if a cold is coming on. I figure I should have a cup of chamomile tea in order to keep my body warm from the chill tonight. Definitely can’t afford to get sick right now. I worked today and did a…

26

26 Before I start I don’t want anyone to be reading this and feel like it’s a low blow or me calling anyone old. This is just me trying to express how I feel about age as freely as I can without hopefully not offending anyone. With just a little bit of time left of…

NYE 2017-2018

For NYE Nick and I decided to go downtown to Fremont for it and I was honestly a bit disappointed by how dead it was! The streets were pretty empty and the bars were pretty dead… By dead I mean you were able to walk around and it was fine. No one was stepping on…

2017 Review

I can’t believe it’s already the end of the year! I seriously feel like this year just flew by me so fast that I can’t even really recall anything I did besides work! It was all a blur! I took so much on this year with work because of my ambition and wanting to get…

Sincerely Saying Sorry

Forgiveness is not something that can be easy to do when you’re angry and for someone like me it can linger for years as it did. I’m a pro at holding grudges and I wish I wasn’t but when I’m so wronged, there’s no way for me to let go until I’m ready. There was…

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…

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…

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…
