30 Before 30: #26 Dye my Hair a Crazy Color

Proud to proclaim my first 30 before 30 challenge has been completed. At the beginning of the summer a very good friend of mine, who happens to also be a hair stylist, helped me complete my first challenge: Dye my hair a crazy color.


We went with pink, both because it’s my favorite color and because it was the only bold color in the salon. Happy coincidence.


I would have to say this slightly bold move out of my typical comfort zone absolutely paid off. Looking down and seeing the pink tips of my hair brought instant smiles to my face. As summer faded so have my pink tips, looking more like the faded strawberry blonde that once was. I will miss this bolder move in my life and certainly will be willing to do it again!


MIA once again

Hello my pretty people! Once again I have fallen by the wayside. I’m in the process of getting myself re-organized, re-focused, re-energized, and (re)blogging once again. Thanks to all who are still following and thanks to everyone who is still happening upon this blog! So great to see.


There are a bunch of new and exciting posts soon to come! Some items to be checked off the 30 before 30 list, way more furniture and DIY projects, and the long awaited breakdown of all the wedding details and DIY items, just to name a few.


In the interim I have been getting rather active on Instagram. For anyone interested you can check me out @makinglifepretty. I’ve also creating the [hash tag] #momentofpretty;  would love to see the beautiful moments you are all enjoying in your little corner of this stunning world we call home. There’s always something to stop and admire each day.
