Let your hair down and live a little

Let your hair down and live a little

Hey hi whatcha doin,

Haps Thursday my pretties! One day closer to the weekend and actually getting a decent amount of sleep compared to the nightly 4-5 hours during the week. Huzzah! I cannot even tell you the amount of times I have yawned within the last 48 hours. I don’t even notice it anymore.. one second I am fully awake and then the next my mouth is wide open, one eye is closed, and I look like I’m waiting for someone to throw a gummy bear in my mouth while also closing my eye after squeezing lemon juice in it.. I just can’t win. If that didn’t paint a pretty picture of my yawning behavior, I don’t know what will.

But anywhoooo, for all of those wondering.. my hair is pink. And not like a 7th grade emo vibe with bangs all the way across my face and me saying ‘rawr :D’ a lot, but instead like a cute little rose gold pinkish tint. I am sure my pink hair means nothing to most of you, but the temporary tint on my hair is a segway into me telling you that it is time to change up your boring hair routine. I also get stuck in a hair rut once in awhile when my hair has the same curl going for 4 days or so (may also be because I don’t wash my hair very often, but don’t judge me). Ya know that week when your hair looks like it hasn’t seen a shower, blowdry or other heat tool in ages? Well I am here to help you out and give your hair a little pizazz.

The best part about hair is that it grows back. I am going to say that one more time for those in the back, front, and middle that chose not to listen.. HAIR GROWS BACK. I really am the least attached to my hair when it comes to getting beautified. I mean in physical terms, yes my hair is very attached to me, but metaphorically I could do anything to it and remember that I can try again next time. You could dye your hair dark brown, hate it, (wait a safe 6-8 weeks to not fry it off) and add in some highlights to get you on your way back to blonde. You could chop off 12 inches and hate it the next day, but the good news is that extensions are a thing or crazy concept here… HAIR GROWS BACK. Anyway, our hair deserves some tender love and affection and a little bit of newness if I do say so myself, so here I am with my hair favorites to spice up your hair life. 🙂

  1. Plastic twirly twirl hairties – clearly not the technical term, but Invisibobble hairties have saved my gosh dang life. They don’t leave creases in your hair and I loveeee that you cant see them when up in a bun. Disclaimer: they are like all other objects you put in your hair, if you aggressively pull them out they will rip your hair.. that’s user error. 🙂 Also, they do stretch pretty quick but last forever. 
  2. Kristen Ess Rose Gold Tint – this is the stuff that is in my hair to make it pink. Ya know when you just have those days where you feel like you want a quick changeup that won’t haunt you for the rest of your life? Try this stuff out for a fun pastel look. Disclaimer: it does turn your bathtub pink, but there ain’t nothing a magic eraser can’t clean up.                                                                     
  3. Hair accessories – I am pretty sure I have mentioned these about 68392 times in the past month or so, but I guess I am really passionate about hair accesorization. There is nothing easier than throwing on a bandana as a headband or adding a bow to pretty pretty braid.                                                                        
  4. Hair masks – Do NOT overlook a conditioning treatment for your hair. Just living in this cruel world is harsh on your hair, so you need to give it the love it deserves. Split ends will never be in style, so take care of em now!                      
  5. Trim your gosh dang hair – this isn’t a product, just a suggestion.. I also used to be that person that went in and asked for 0.005 millimeters to be trimmed and was very upset when it looked closer to 0.006 mm gone. Freshly cut hair is healthy hair, so take off an inch or so and your hair will thank you.

That was a lot of hair talk, and even the word ‘hair’ now doesn’t seem like a real word.. but it is, and it’s also a real thing so take care of it! Until next time!

Heya hiya how ya doin,

It is Friday my dudes and I could not be more excited that this week has come to an end. I am a super nerd, but I love when the weekend comes so I can listen to a conversation that doesn’t involve the functions of the thalamus and best practices of X Ray Crystallography.. but never forget, science rules. Anyway, on that topic.. very exciting news – ya girl is 99.999% graduating next semester! Legit wasn’t sure this day was ever coming but thank you Jesus that it finally did. I even sprinted to my car, fully winded and all after this big revelation. 🙂

But today’s post isn’t really about me, it’s about you.. my forever boo thangs always supporting me. And to be more specific this post is about my fashion, lifestyle, and fitness posts wrapped into one to get ‘er done. So really this post is about me, who am I kidding? I kinda sorta missed the Wednesday favorites this week (no surprise there), so I am going to give people what they want and make this post an extra long favorites one to hold you over till the next one! Sit back and enjoy the posts hunniesssss. <3

  1. James Michelle Jewelry – so I am not too much of a jewelry gal, but a super cute ring reallyyyyyy gets me. I feel like an edgy girl that studies witchcraft or something when I am all ring-ed up, but in such a gosh dang good way! Photo-Aug-18-3-42-04-PM-1_900x.jpg
  2. Trader Joe’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups – These things are DANGEROUS. It is almost impossible to eat the entire box in one sitting because they are that good. Heaven in a small package.
  3. Functional training – so there’s workouts that build muscle and then there are ones that tone muscle and build a stronger core. The latter of the two helps you in everyday tasks to get be a better, more well-rounded person. Try slow and controlled movements using a bosu ball or glider once or twice a week!
  4. Essie Fall collection – my nails give me a headache on a weekly basis because I either take 3 hours to paint them only to have them get smudged in my sleep, or I paint em in two minutes and they stay on for weeks! This new collection of colors are fun fall shades like olive, navy, and burnt oranges. They look super badass with a layer of matte top coat over them too.                                       
  5. Black leopard Adidas – these shoes make me question every decision I have ever made in my life because I think they say ‘Ciera Farley’ even more standing in front of you in the flesh. Size down a half a size! Also plus – you don’t even have to know how to tie your shoes. 😉                                                                                  
  6. Every single gosh dang fall scent at Bath & Body Works – 3 wick candles may be my obsession during the fall & winter months and I ain’t even mad about it. Pro tip: Bath & Body Works has a special every weekend on the candles from now until Christmas, so don’t you dare pay full price for those babies!

Welp I guess that wasn’t as long as I would have imagined.. but ya know, double the favorites = double the fun this week?? I may have a post up tomorrow with a full Sunriver recap so stay tuned. K lots of love.

The answer is always yes

The answer is always yes

Hey gal pals & boy toys,

I have another post coming to you at the correct day and time, so if you could just get a little excited, maybe send me a congratulatory cake, or transfer $10000 into my bank account that would be super cool.. but I guess as long as you read on in this post and keep coming back to the blog, I will take that as a token of your gratitude. Tokens of gratitude get you nothing beside having to read more of my chatty chat 2-3 times a week.. you’re welcome.

Today is a Wednesday (if you are not previously aware of how a calendar works, that means it is a Favorites post.. the Mayans wrote that in, I promise). And the topic of today’s favorites post is to always say yes. You are about to become your own personal yes wo(MAN) this week when it comes to all things I really like.

Also starting this week (because I just decided this) I will now be including more categories in my favorite things than ever before. I will now be adding songs, artists, movies, accessories, and maybe even dog breeds with lots of cute pictures. Now don’t say I never did anything for ya. 😉

But I will get us goin on my favorites today because ain’t nobody got time for all of this nonsense I have a-brewin, Without further ado, my favessss of the week.

  1. So as I was online shopping I thought to myself, Ciera do you really need another water bottle.. especially one with spikes on it? Immediately I answered no in my head, but I decided to form that into a yes by asking myself, Ciera do you need to drink more water and look cute doing it? YES. So I purchased this adorable bkr glass bottle to keep me looking cute while hydrating. WIN WIN. It doesn’t get a funny smell like some water bottles do and is surprisingly well insulated. 
  2. Next question for today was, Ciera are you try to listen to that good good or just some mediocre hood sh*t? I decided to go with that good good, and I will bestow upon you the musical innerworkings and beauty that is Billie Eilish. She’s got a kinda creepy vibe to her that I sorta dig. Start with ‘Ocean Eyes’ then ‘You Should See Me in a Crown’ and then you will be ready for the rest of her jams.                          https://open.spotify.com/user/cierafarley1/playlist/5WV2Y5CpkoXLPbxKuzZD8B
  3. And finally I have asked myself countless times, Ciera would you like to bring back all of your childhood accessories like scrunchies and hair bows? No question here, most definitely yes. I love a good ponytail hair bow because it says I’m girly, cute and could be 12 in a good way.. if there is a good way to say that?? Who knows, but I think they make a boring outfit fun.                                                 

Well dear friends, like I said.. always say yes. Live a little. Have some fun. Until next time.
