The reopening date is getting closer and closer and I can’t wait to be back in the studio transforming hair. As we work to get all of our ducks in a row, it’s starting to feel more like we’re preparing for a grand reopening event! It’s crazy to think we’ve been closed for two whole […]

A few weeks ago I shared my list of the top 10 things I’m most grateful for. Gratitude has been a part of my daily routine for so long that it felt pretty much unshakeable. Then this quarantine happened and my business was shut down and I turned into a homeschool teacher all at once. […]

I say May Day… because we’re leading into may, but also… Send help! Surrender! White flag! It has definitely been a very tumultuous month. A month of stillness, but also a month of high anxiety. My emotions have been all over the place. I’ve been pouring myself into projects that typically bring me so much […]

I’m taking you guys on a home tour and sharing some gratitude for the process of making my house into a home! When I first found out I was going to be spending at least a month in my house, if not longer, my first thought was man, I have so many little projects that […]

Let’s be real…nobody really saw this coming.

But also attacks my allergies… The struggle is real. Spring is one of my favorite seasons because it’s not quite hot yet and there’s still a little bit of crispness in the air. It’s all about newness as we roll out of winter into the warmth. The first touches of spring always make everything feel […]

This Sunday launches the next Garnish Your Growth episode and this week Niko and I are talking about superpowers and how to monetize them. Are you wondering what the heck a real life superpower is? Your superpower is something that you do that you’re naturally (or trained to be) really good at. It’s something people […]

I just had to let you all in on a little secret about me… Music is my WHOLE mood. I am such a creature of vibes and music and need it playing pretty much all the time. If the playlist at the salon stops for more than 5 seconds it completely throws me into a […]

February marks 4 years since my mommy makeover. I get a lot of questions from other women about my experience so I thought I’d take a moment to answer ALL your biggest questions. A little bit of backstory first… I had my two babies back to back. I had Kingston and then at my postpartum […]

February 14, 2020

This is my second Valentine’s Day holiday inside of being single. It gives me an opportunity to make “self love the new relationship goals.” This Valentine’s Day I wanted to do something a little different. I wanted to treat myself to something that I rarely ever do—which is to actually take a pause. Instead of […]
