color change & arm candy


Well since I was born a blonde, it looks like that's what I'm supposed to be.  I have tried every color in the book, recently 8wks of ginger status, but I kept thinking about the light side and how much better I felt about myself with blonder-ish hair.  So a marathon coloring sesh in my bathroom & kitchen (24 hrs & 10 color applications later) resulted in developer overdose, delicate tresses, stained towels, and a sensitive scalp.. but a happy Heather.  I'm still debating on adding dark to the top and doing a subtle ombre, so this might turn into 11 color applications by the time I'm done.



Enough about my head.. Arm candy is everywhere and I might as well jump on the wagon and giveaway a couple pretties for you.  Lately I've been rocking wraps - a custom made silk wrap by jessicaNdesigns and a tribal print wrap watch by Feral Watches. And I'm going to offer up some goodies from both of them just for you.. but first I want to share a little more about each of them.




Megan Hollenbeck of Feral Watches has been wrapping wrists since 2011 when she lived on the north shore of Hawaii. Sandy toes, salty hair, and sun kissed faces inspired her to create a unique design that reflects personal style. Combining her love for creating handmade accessories and having fun, feral watches was born.


Jessica is living her dream as an Indie Shop owner of jessicaNdesigns creating lovely hand stamped keepsakes & personalized jewelry.  She is a Wife, Mommy, Romantic, Dreamer. Lover of Jesus, her family, vintage, country music, coffee, books, lip gloss & DIY projects.

  28. Okay so my answer to my favorite arm candy is going to be so lame.... but I always have like 50 hair ties. It is much needed between myself and little ones. Wearing a hair tie like an accessory is a lot easier than cleaning pizza sauce from the hair
