Recent Snapshots

July 10, 2015

I got all my hair chopped off yesterday, and it feels great! As much as I loved having long hair, it's a total pain in the summertime, and the days are only getting hotter. I decided to do it on a whim while I was pulling my hair into a ponytail and realizing just how annoying it is to have to take care of mermaid-length hair when it's upwards of 90 degrees.

We've been getting a TON of rain on the east coast, I swear the weather has been in some type of mood. Even though it's been completely unpredictable the past few weeks, the skies are looking so gorgeous at sunset. One night I walked outside and the sky looked like rainbow sherbert. How cool is that?!


I also got the opportunity to try out Rocksbox*, a jewelry subscription service that I've fallen in love with! I'm not usually one to do a lot of jewelry shopping on my own (it's so tedious in the store,I can never find things that suit my tastes!) so having three pieces selected for me based on my likes is a big plus! My favorite piece is the Slate Double Strand Necklace, I've been wearing it a bunch. I think I just might keep it. What do you guys think?

A bonus! You can get a free month of Rocksbox with code: olivineeyesxoxo, no strings attached!

Lastly, I found a new home for my little succulent babies, and I'm itching to go get a few more! How many cacti is too many cacti? Am I destined to become a Crazy Cactus lady? (I would be more than okay with that, by the way)
