Letters from the Arctic pt.2

Day 2: Valentine’s Day I woke up again from my interrupted sleep at 11am and packed my bags to now go to my Air bnb in Reykjavik. I checked out at noon from my hotel and took off. When I left the hotel there was snow everywhere. It made me a little nervous driving but I’m…

Letters from the Arctic pt.1

I’m finally back from Iceland and all I can say is just WOW. This trip was something truly unforgettable and I CANNOT WAIT to share. I’ll be breaking up the days into different blog posts because there’s just too much to talk about and I really want to go into depth about the whole trip….

The Road to Getting Home

It’s 3am and I find myself writing late at night again.. I went to pink box doughnuts earlier since Nick and I used to go allll the damn time late at night. I’ll have doughnuts and watch a movie shortly so I can start to wind down and go to bed. I have Pandora playing…

We’re only Dreaming pt. 1

  It’s 3am and my allergies have been a mess all damn day long. I’m eating chicken noodle soup and drinking the ‘Breathe Deep’ Yogi tea. I don’t know what about the tea it is, but that shit always helps with my scratchy throat when my allergies start acting up. I guess now would be…

A Star is Born

October 22nd, 2018 It’s 1am and I’m currently drinking stress relief tea in the cup Nick used to drink his tea and drinks out of that his father let me keep. Dan saw me drinking out of it and let me keep it and it made me happy to be able to sit down with…

Recreate

It’s crazy to me how history tends to repeat itself. 1 minute you think your this whole new person and that you’ve changed and then 10 years go by and you go back to that same person you were back then with maybe a few better modifications. At least this seems to be my case…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
