Jenny Lewis

January, gone already?

Wow, I can’t believe the first month of 2015 is over already!  I’m another year older, but I feel like this month has ended on a very positive note for me.  I may not have the perfect everything yet, but I’m so happy with my decisions these days.  That’s a feeling you can’t summon on command.  I’ll savor it while I’ve got it.

Most of my pictures went into my belated birthday recap, but here’s what else went on!


[1] January started with the remnants of Christmas decorating Boston Common. [2] My waffle maker got a lot of use this month!  I love making uneven shapes for some reason. [3] I’m not sure if hat hair is a problem or a solution. [4] The cold would never stop me from strolling down my beloved Boylston Street. [5] Yes, you’ve seen my record player before!  I bought the new Jenny Lewis album, The Voyager.  I’m on the lookout for more vinyl to add to my collection. [6] Browsing the paper shops on Charles Street in Beacon Hill, I found this adorable stationary the perfect way to say thank you for all the birthday love! [7] Juno hit us hard here, but I had the best day working from home.  I read two books and didn’t leave my bed. [8] Sadly, I had to go to work the next day.  Check out all this snow in Cambridge! [9] A new, weird hobby I’ve taken up: teaching myself hiragana!  I’ve wanted to learn Japanese forever, so why not take some steps toward that.

I hope you all had a lovely start to this year!

It’s a brand new month to make wonderful!


Seeing Red

My hair’s been every natural shade from black to strawberry blonde, but I took a roughly six year break from hair dye and accepted my natural color.  A couple weeks ago, I broke my hiatus and went blonde for summer!  If you follow me on instagram, you’ve probably seen my new tresses.  I’m loving being blonde again, but my true desire is to be a redhead.  Here are my hair idols.

My girl Jenny Lewis rocks a very natural shade of red, subtle but still lovely.  She’s my true hair idol, but I’m not prepared to take on bangs.  I think this is likely my future color!  This whole look is actually perfection.

Karen Gillan had gorgeous, long, red hair.  She cut it all off for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  Luckily, they made her a wig of her own hair… which she wears for Selfie.  Can I borrow that wig?

Christina Hendricks

Christina Hendricks as Joan Holloway rocks a vibrant, attention-grabbing red.  This is a red that makes no apologies.  It’s nice to see that Christina Hendricks can rock a coral lip with this hair color.  Very encouraging for me.

Bonus: Gillian Anderson


The X-Files

She’s blonde now, and I’m pretty sure I can blame my going-blonde again on her.  Back when I first fell in love with Gillian Anderson, she was Dana Scully, and a redhead!  I could definitely transition with this strawberry shade.

So, red’s next!  Maybe for fall.  Who are your hair idols?

WCW: Jenny Lewis (The Voyager)

My Woman Crush this Wednesday, and everyday, is the amazing Jenny Lewis.  I picked her today in honor of her newest solo album, The Voyager, which debuted yesterday.

I’ve loved Jenny Lewis from her days in Rilo Kiley, but I’ve known her for a lot longer than that.  She also delighted me playing Shelley Long’s daughter in Troop Beverly Hills!  I’ve gotten the opportunity to see Jenny in concert only once, back when Rilo Kiley was still together and she and Blake were magic together on the stage.  She’s so adorable and has a fantastic spirit about her when she performs– look no further than her flawless appearance on Jimmy Fallon with her first single, Just One of the Guys.

I’m already absolutely in love with this album.  It’s perfection.

What do you all think of The Voyager?
