Emma Stone, gorgeous and so funny!

I was THIS close to dying my hair dark red because I loved this look so much, but in no time she went blonde again. Emma has always been an inspiration in the hair department. She and I share a few of the same facial features which makes asking a stylist for her look more realistic than say, asking for Kim Kardashian hair. We both have green eyes, naturally dark brows and fare skin. I feel that if she can pull it off, so can I. Now, thanks to this hot new photo of her as a blond bombshell, I think I too am leaning a little more to the lighter side.

Which look do you like?



  1. I do love the red on her, but then I really like her as a blonde. Its a hard choice. Do both. lol.

  2. I have always had a soft spot for Gingers! Go for it!

    I bet the G-Unit would love it!!!

  3. She can wear both, and so can you. You are beautiful either way.
    Your sister,
    hugs and kisses

  4. Love both looks and both of looks will look fab on you!

  5. I know blonde is her natural color, but I've always preferred her darker. Makes her eyes and freckles pop so nicely! I love to play with haircolor. But fall and winter seems to call for some warm chesnut reds! My sister just went red actually!

  6. I think both hair colors look good but I'm more partial to red. But I've never gone blonde so I can live through you if you do!

  7. I am loving the white over here lady. Sorry I have been slacking... but I do enjoy stalking you on Instagram!! :) Oh and dark red... it's wonderful... I wish I had to guts to do that because I LOVE the colour... however, I do enjoy like your goldilocks too... hmm... tough decision... xx Love Elle xo

  8. I tried every color and I went back to my dark brown. It's hard to keep up with the maintenance and it costs a lot of money...

  9. I'm a blonde but I toy with the idea of dying my hair brown or deep red constantly. I don't think I'd ever be able to do it - I've never dyed my hair so I feel like I'd be a traitor to it if I started now, at 26 years old hahaha. I think she looks amazing with the blonde hair! Maybe it's the photo, but it gives her face a great shape and glow

  10. I'm kind of in the same boat; fair, green eyes, natural brown hair (a medium color, definitely not dark brown), and while I spend most of my time blonde, how I feel most "me", I do enjoy going a nice, dark chocolate brown every winter, or every other winter. Change is nice, and when you suit both ways, why not?! She looks great any color.

  11. damn she looks good as a blonde!

  12. There is more definition with the dark colors contrasting the light skin! God dark red! :D

I hate to request word verification - but I'm over spam comments like I'm over Kim Kardashian.

It's Written In Stone.

I visited her grave yesterday for the first time in a long time. It was August 8th, her Birthday, and I had spent the entire day thinking about her and working up the courage to pay her a little visit. It's hard for me to go there, but I knew it would be a good place to be alone with my thoughts and a safe place to talk out loud.

Standing over her grave, I thought about all the things we would have in common if she was still here. Her being twenty-three and me twenty-six, I know we'd be the best of friends - no different than before. I thought about how she would celebrate her big day and knew it would start with Eggo Waffles soaked in syrup while she watched A Baby Story, A Wedding Story and then What Not To Wear. She would have come up to our pool or gone down to the beach where she'd sit with her favorite book, a bag of Munchies and a cold can of Nestea. She'd be listening to her favorite music in her van and dreading any kind of party Mom was planning because she h…

Mornings. The Struggle Is Real.

He wakes up before his alarm clock and instantly rises to his feet. He doesn't wait for the alarm just so he can hit the snooze button three times, or stretch, rub his eyes or take a few minutes to process that it is now morning. He jumps out of bed. No matter how little sleep he had he appears rested, energized and ready to tackle the day. He lets OB out for a pee, throws the lazy dog back into our bed and hops in the shower. He makes a trip downstairs to freshen his clothes in the dryer and comes back upstairs to iron his outfit. He may pack himself a lunch, make a cup of coffee, and may even sit in front of the television with a bowl of cereal.


For the life of me I have tried to rise and shine, but I just can't. I have even set the alarm on my tablet to wake me with a motivational message. Good morning, Rachel. It's a new day! Get up, make coffee, exercise! I have prepared a lunch the night before, gone to bed early, set out clothes, pre-set the coffee pot to brew…

Our Kitchen Makeover - Before & After

What I am about to say, I say with great certainty. If you and your spouse can get through a major home renovation project, you can get through just about anything.

Back in early November we set out to create the kitchen of our dreams. I had pinned enough ideas to design ten kitchens combined, all the materials were purchased, the job was quoted and within our budget, and finally all the more important home projects were behind us. This took having to accept that insulating our basement and installing an energy efficient heating system was more important than new cabinets and more counter space - which wasn't particularly easy for me. 

The goal was bigger and brighter. The original kitchen had only one tight corner you could work on, a low hanging microwave and one sink. It consisted of thirty year old hardwood floors that were scuffed and damaged by water among other spills, oak cabinets that aged to an unpleasant shade of yellow, warped laminate counter-top with a dated wood de…
