New Year, New Outlook

I only have two New Years resolutions this year: be happy and be healthy. Looking back over this past year I have decided to change my outlook on life.

#1: Be Happy. Have you ever heard the quote you can't control others, only how you react to them? I don't know why I have never really thought about it or taken it to heart but this year I am going to try to implement it in my everyday life. I look back on 2012 and remember spending a lot of time worrying. Worrying about things that don't really matter or that are out of my control. Why do I tend to be such a control freak? No clue, which is yet another topic I could discuss with a future therapist. I need to relax and just take a deep breathe more often. I need to randomly drive to the beach in Cali just to feel the sand between my toes, go on a bike ride for no reason except to see where the journey takes me, and to tell the people I love how much they mean all day everyday just so I can make sure they know. I'm pretty sure Bob Marley's songs will now be the theme songs for 2013 :)

#2 Be Healthy. As most of you know, I am obsessed with dieting. I know, it's an issue and I have come to grips with the fact that it will probably NEVER change. How long is that list of complications I have now? If anyone knows a good shrink, send me their number. Just kidding I psycho analyze myself everyday.....that position has already been filled. This year I am going to try to be healthier rather then diet. Do more athletic activities such as hiking, playing soccer with my little man, and having dance parties while watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Such an exciting life I lead these days. My life has changed so much in the past 3 years it's insane but I wouldn't trade it for the world! Along with being more athletic also comes the eating part of a healthy lifestyle. Yup, more food talk. I am only going to focus on eating clean rather then a diet. I should treat my body like a temple and all that jazz. Lots of juicing for breakfast, whole grains, and yummy ahi tuna are in my near future. Sometimes I wish I could be a hippy.....then I remember my obsession with hair products and stilettos! Oh well, a girl can dream of the perfectly feathered beach waves such as Blake Lively's in Savages right? 

Well here's looking at you 2013. I hope we can be best friends and good to each other!

Love your more positive bestie,

To Ombre or Not to Ombre?

So now that the new year has begun and we are in extreme "find a new house" mode, I am starting to dig this whole change thing. I have friends who talk about how they LOVE change it's nice to spice up life a bit but that has never been my style. I am very afraid of change most of the time. I like my same restaurants, same actors, same clothing stores, and most importantly......same color. I have been a blond my whole life except for when I had a "young life" crisis and dyed it brown. I hated it, felt ugly, and needless to say went back blond super quick. There was one good thing about being brunette though, I met my husband. He said he had always dated brunettes but LOVES blonds. Seems like it worked out pretty perfect for him :)

Anyhoo, back on track. Now that I am getting used to the idea of change I am thinking about going ombre. I love the look on other people and thinks it's totally fab but when I tried it before I had a mental breakdown {yet again} and that also didn't last. Why is it that I always freak out you might ask? I have no idea, I should probably see a therapist or something. So this is my question to all you fashionistas out I try it again and hope this time it sticks or save myself the trouble, time, and hair damage and just stay bright blond?

If I do go ombre this is the color I will be shooting for.....haha still not that big of a change I know but I'm trying baby steps

I know the words are covering it so it's hard to tell but here's another
