The trouble with BANGS

Ya know what's really difficult?


I've been a bang girl for the last two years. I love myself with bangs. I love the way others respond to my bangs...but I've since grown to HATE them.

Here's why....
#1 New York is WINDY. I leave my house with my bangs perfectly styled, sprayed and ready to go. The second I walk out the door of my beautiful NY apartment I get hit with a blast of wind that makes my bangs look like this:
The wind catches Duchess Kate's hair, as she leaves Hillsborough Castle in Belfast, Northern Ireland
And while she is always beautiful...this look is NOT. At least not for me. It drives me nuts, and I always have to have a damn comb with me. AINT NOBODY GOT TIME FA DAT.

#2 Let's face it. I'm a sweaty lady. And the first thing that sweats is my HAIRLINE. Great, huh? Even after a shower while I'm blow drying my hair (which is necessary with bangs...or else it can be disastrous) my head starts to sweat. Not a good look people...

#3 It's cold in New York. Which equals a winter full of HATS. I love hats. My bangs do not. I don't know how people make the whole "hipster hat with bangs" look work....but I definitely did not master it this winter. The hat pushes your bangs forward and covers your eyes. So I felt like a goober and sometimes didn't wear a hat which I immediately regretted after I stepped outside. 

So after some serious thinking...I think it's time to say goodbye to the bangs.
We had a good run, but it's time to move on. Please don't make this difficult for me.

Oh. And if any of you ladies have some tips for me on how to make this difficult time a little easier, I'm open to any advice.

Yes Please

One cool thing about living in New York is that you live in a city that people want to come to visit! We've had many visitors in the last two months: Ally Berry, BJ Whimpey, Trent Cox, Katie Jones, Kelcee Toyn, Tasha Kunzler, Josh Valdez and Sam Cook. Tonight we welcome two new visitors to share The Leaky Cauldron (our apartment) with....Lauren Rathbun and Stewart Fullerton. I cannot wait to have these goofy girls with us. It truly is like a little piece of home is with us.

People visiting also gives me a chance to see shows! Like THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME, which is one of the best plays I have ever seen. I could truly see it 5 more times. 
Life is great! I am busy trying to find a full time job! I have had three interviews in the last four days! So we will see if something awesome comes out of that.

I have also recently started working out at MFF!!! I LOVE IT. I have lost an inch from working and I've TOTALLY changed my diet. It honestly hasn't been that difficult, you just find healthy foods that you like. 
I've also discovered a love for cooking. It's so much fun to find recipes on pinterest and see how it turns out!

I also started re-watching One Tree Hill and it's taking me back to Junior High days.
That Peyton + Lucas love is all I want.
