new hair!

Like always - It has been crazy busy over here in the studio, but I can safely say it is now the weekend for me! Sunday's are usually my Monday. I had so many projects going on last night that I almost had to cancel my hair appointment and I'm so happy I didn't! (My hair was a mess! my boyfriend told me I had beast hair from beauty and the beast! I couldn't really disagree either ;) I was just the weirdo sitting in the middle of the salon working on my laptop drawing with my tablet while my hair was getting dyed. I must say I love how it turned out - I have never had this much color in my hair before so it was a big change for me. Any local peeps should check out Moxie Salon and get your hair did by Courtney - She's the best! On another note I found some time today to work on some new art for my etsy shop so check for it soon! I'm going to unwind from this crazy work week tonight with some dinner with one of my best friends and a walk around grand ave to do a little shopping :)

some new books / currently coveting on ModCloth

ack! I have been trying to write this post for the past few days now! So like I said really trying to get into the home makeover spirit! I bought Modern Vintage Style for some inspiration and it is filled with tons of great photos! I would suggest picking it up - plus it looks really nice added to my constantly growing book collection. I also picked up Practically Raw for it's amazing smoothie recipes - I haven't gotten around to making any yet, but when I do I will be sure to tell you about it.

And of course I am always loving everything from ModCloth. I check their website multiple times a day checking for the new arrivals! I love ordering from them and rarely end up having to return anything - which I don't know is a good thing or a bad thing ;) Anyways the above items are some things I really wouldn't mind adding to my closet.

All can be purchased here!

"me time"

So, I have been pretty much non stop working for a while now. This week especially got crazy work wise for me and it is only tuesday - well technically wednesday - I just haven't gone to bed yet :/ But, I am trying to make it a point to be posting on this blog, and to make some more "me time" - i'm sort of a work-a-holic. Some things that I have been doing for my "me time" are cooking more! I have to say I am actually really starting to enjoy it too! I have also been working out on a pretty regular basis for around a month now and surprisingly I am really starting to enjoy that too! I found out I really like yoga by taking my first class at corepower yoga. It was fantastic! I felt so re-energized after my first class I was actually excited to go home and work some more. That being said I really want to make this blog about my "me time." So, get ready for a ton of posts people! :)

patch nyc @ target!

Like the previous post stated we are finally doing some painting / and decorating to our home. I must say it is going VERY slow...haha. Chris and I just can't seem to get into the groove of it yet. Our work, social life, and rare chance to relax seem to keep getting in the way (which honestly hanging out with friends is way more important then painting trim white) - I mean if I have the rare chance to lay around on the couch all day watching netflix I will take that over decorating and painting any day! I am happy to say that I did snatch up the above items from Target's website today and I can't wait until they arrive! maybe they will give me the needed push to get some more things done around our house!
