in giveaway

hi! before i get started, i would like to share an email i received from a reader (hi, jenna!)

“I have been reading your blog religiously for the last couple of years, and LOVE it.

I am a member of the Sandy Hook, CT community and I deeply appreciate your day of silence. Now is a time for healing and remembering, and it touches me to see that you are recognizing those who lost their lives on that tragic day in my town.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.


Here are two of my old classmate’s fundraisers that are currently accepting donations if you or anyone you know would like to help out even more:




thank you, jenna, for letting us know how we can help!!



i cut bangs in april of 2008 and never looked back. I LOVE HAVING BANGS. i will scream it from every rooftop. i can’t tell you how happy i am that my hairdresser (hi lisa! at taylor d’shaw!) talked me into getting them.

the only drawback of having bangs is that they get in the way during a workout. luckily certain things–like bobby pins (who is bobby, anyway?)–can remedy that. headbands are a good way to manage bangs during a workout, too.. but i usually have bad luck with them falling off my head. i think my head has problems.. there is, like, NO headband that will stay put on my noggin’ during a workout! well, no headband, except the lululemon bang buster.

i originally learned about the bang buster from my friend katie. she’s to (blame?) thank for my collection of pricy headbands. but, i have to say, $15 for a bang buster is WELL worth it. this headband stays in place and keeps my bangs out of my face. i absolutely love it. i wear it often–to the gym, hiking, boating, during tough mudder, and even just out and about when i am too lazy to wash my hair. what? don’t act like that doesn’t happen to you! ha.

i thought i would share the bang buster love with you guys. i bought this bad boy with my own dollar bills and will ship it anywhere in the world.


it’s beaming blue and polar cream in the new fun laceoflage pattern. i hope the winner loves this headband as much as me!

The best decision of my life was participating in the hanky panky that brought me my Baby Belle! :)

Debbie (Accidently Delish) December 19, 2012 at 8:57 am

best decision i ever made. hands done to go on that first date with my fiance. i was SO resistant to date again, but he was very persistent. i’m glad he was. i’m glad i did. best decision ever. i can’t picture my life with out him.

Christina December 19, 2012 at 9:02 am

The best decision I’ve ever made was to try to learn how to love myself instead of hating my body. That decision changed everything else for the better as well

Ps. I have to thank you for getting me hooked on the bang buster. I have 2 of them, and I wear them all the time since its the only headband big enough to hold back all my bangs. Love it :D

Marrying my husband. BEST DECISION EVER!

Ashley S December 19, 2012 at 10:29 am

Best thing I ever did was marry my husband, having a child we adore and moving to Colorado!

Maggie J December 19, 2012 at 10:45 am

One of my best decisions was to go gluten free. My migraines are GONE. While it was hard at first, it has totally been worth it!

Cole December 19, 2012 at 10:53 am

One of th best decisions I have ever made is moving to Florida with my current boyfriend. It made me mature, grow and make lots of (great) decisions for myself!

Cheri Z December 19, 2012 at 7:57 pm

The best thing I ever did was to sign my 3 year-old up for ballet. It was instant love, and it has remained her passion for the past 11 years. How lucky is that?

Tough question – best decision ever? I’d say going to NYU for law school despite it being ridiculously expensive and having a full scholarship to another school. The experience I’ve had these past three years is worth the crazy debt!

Grace @ Eat Sweat Sing December 20, 2012 at 3:58 am

The best descision I ever made would first be deciding to follow Jesus. Second would be deciding to go on a date with “that weird guy from school,” because now I’m married to him! ;)

Deborah December 20, 2012 at 9:11 am

Best decision i’ve ever made was choosing to go to the high school i went to instead of another! it’s a big thing in Malaysia, and i think it set me along the right path! i just finished my degree, i’m a dentist;)

Olviya@servingsisters.com December 20, 2012 at 12:22 pm

The best decision I have ever made is to give my heart/life over to the Lord.

Maren December 20, 2012 at 2:06 pm

Best decision I ever made was dating Nate! Because now I get to marry my best friend in two days! Yippee!

Amanda December 20, 2012 at 2:27 pm

The best decision I ever made was marrying my best friend and having 2 adorable energetic little boys! Never a dull moment!!

Megan December 20, 2012 at 10:28 pm

Best decision of my life was to move west to be near my BF!
