After years without, this blog finally has some direction.
I have decided to use my blog to share what's going on in my life. So this my post that is in-between me not really knowing what I wanted to do with my blog and now having a clear understanding on how I want to communicate with the world and express myself through my blog. Allow me to tell you just a little bit more about me.
Sometimes I WORK:
I am a hairstylist who decided to open my own business this year. So I'll be including lots of exciting news from my hair salon and helpful hair tips here on my blog! So far everything is going great! I am really enjoying owning and operating my own business. I look forward to sharing more about my work adventures! My Salon Website
Being a hairstylist is actually my second profession. My first career was working in Landscape Architecture, but I am happy to have changed career paths knowing mine will always be green! :) While studying and interning (really hard) to become a Licensed Landscape Architect I learned a ton about horticulture and computer aided design. I also managed to learn a little about environmental sciences and sustainable technologies and practices.
Since then I strive to utilize that knowledge in all that I come to do. Being green is cool! So in an effort to keep cool at work, I continue to look for new ways to ways to implement sustainable methods in my business as a stylist.
Sometimes I CRAFT:
Many of you already know me from my handmade, Eco-friendly candle company: Brandywine Design. I am still making, selling and burning these beauties. They are now available both online in My Etsy Shop and at my salon! So it is quite likely I will intermittently (a word I learned in college studying LA) post about candles here and there.
In fact, it is likely that I will make lots of posts sharing crafty, DIY type projects as I love art and am always getting into something!

Sometimes I PLAY:
You know it's true! Sometimes we just need to play harder than others so we can let loose of all the heavy burdens we hang onto in our everyday lives. For me that means traveling, camping, concerts and outdoor music festivals! The best times I've known were spent outdoors somewhere beautiful with plenty of good friends and good live music, drink, food and vibes... Lots of smiling, hugging, dancing, gettin' weird, learning, laughing, loving and celebrating-life going on in that scene! My scene! ♥ FESTIES! ♥
