My new hurr cut

A dude cut this hair. Isn't that strange? Maybe not, I'm just not used to that at all. But he did a great job! I love it! Nothing feels better than having hair only an inch long.

I'm starting to wonder if I'll ever grow my hair out again. I tried when I first got to school, and I didn't make it through the awkward stage. I just had to cut it again! I don't think it's a bad thing if I always have short hair... Grandma always had short hair, and I like the idea that I'll always be like that, too :)

I bought these shoes today. Are they too ridiculous? I think you could classify them as "super wedges". Well, even if they are a little crazy, they add 3 inches to my height, and that's what I like most about them.

Hair Show

Today was our Hair and Makeup show that Aveda puts on every year around Earth Day. The theme is always the elements, and mine was specifically water.

 My team member, Lauren, came up with the idea. This piece was created by teasing the heck the out of her hair, and then using cheap synthetic hair balled up in a hairnet and pinning it on her her head. We then covered it using her own hair.

 I know it's a stretch, but our inspiration was this sea shell. It's supposed to be creative and artsy anyways, so it doesn't matter if it just looked crazy.

For her makeup we used dark blue eyeshadow on the lids, and silver foil over the eyebrows. It looked pretty cool in the light.

Lots of hairspray. That's the key to all hair shows.

This one was definitely one of my favorite pieces that another group did. It represents air. I wish I had asked what it was made from!

I don't know what they were going for with this one, but it looked cool!

Here's our model looking amazing…


My apologies. I'm a terrible blogger! To be quite honest though, nothing is new! But I think that's going in change here in the next couple weeks...

 Here are some pictures from the most recent hike that I went on. Can you believe that the trail head is literally a ten minute drive from my apartment?

 This is called Rock Canyon, and it's the canyon just to the left of Y Mountain. It's super close, moderate hiking difficulty, and it's pretty!

 It is also very popular. I ran into a few dirty hippies on my way up, but after about 30 minutes of straight hiking, the pavement stops, and the trail turns into a very nice dirt trail, it's farther back in the canyon, and it literally feels like you are in the middle of nowhere!

 It's a new favorite hike of mine :)

 School is going just as well. I have graduated from Water Phase, and I am now in Fiiiiiiiiiyaaaaaa! We are excited to move on in the program and actually learn some things (Water Phase was mostly a re…
