1. Pixie Cuts-

I have been OBSESSED with the idea of cutting my hair super short again. All I ever want is hair that's cooler than I actually am. Is that too much to ask for? 

My hair Pinterest board has basically become a shrine to too-cool-for-school pixie cuts!




I've had a haircut scheduled for a few months now coming up at the beginning of May. You just never know what I'll do! #loosecannon

2. Tessa Violet is the Tops-

And this video proves it! 

3. Current Drink-

It's spring here in Colorado & in our house that means it's time for Toddy! I've been making iced coffee with a splash of unsweetened almond milk & just a squeeze of agave syrup. Perfection! 

The striped straw is the perfect finishing touch! 

4. Giant Days-

I found both volumes at my local library, but if you're more of a buy-before-you-read reader, both of these are definitely worth owning! I HIGHLY recommend! 



5. I Need to Make a Few of These-

Maybe just one in every color & pattern.

1. March Playlist- 

This might be one of my favorite monthly curated playlists that I've ever made! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! 

2. I Don't Know How I Missed This-

This came out almost a year ago, & I had yet to see it! I'm so glad I stumbled across this nostalgic gem! John Cryer will always remain the Duck-Man! 

3. Serial Podcast Season 2-

If you didn't hear about Serial when season one started picking up momentum, you would have had to be living under a rock, frankly. It is quality journalism & radio at it's best. Season one, covering a murder mystery from the late 90's was a sleeper hit. It resonated with so many people and when it ended, it sort of left everyone asking, "Now what?" 

Season 2 was announced and released at the end of 2015, and I knew there was no way they were going to match the level of success of season 1, but I was excited to see what the Serial team had to offer. I know some will disagree with me, but they didn't disappoint.

Season 2 follows the story of Bowe Bergdahl, the American Army sergeant who was captured by the Taliban & spent 5 years in captivity. He was rescued in 2014 but there is so much more to this story than meets the eye.  To avoid spoilers, I'll just say this is a program you'll want to hear. This is a podcast that discusses the nature of war, American military & politics & the human condition. 

Though it doesn't pull you in as quickly as season 1,  it is definitely worth it! Season 2 is a slow burn that will get under your skin and, if you're like me, have you questioning a lot of what you believe about American military & politics Listen, enjoy & ponder. Trust me. 


4. Words to Live By-


5. This Swimsuit-

This baby will have you feeling like a 1940's bathing beauty in no time! 


I think I'd pair it with this straw cloche hat & just call it a beautiful, stylish day!

- I finally got to see Crimson Peak & I really liked it! But beware; it's not for the faint of heart. Check out the trailer here
