do you have a favorite sss mixtape?
What follows is sponsored and also very honest content:
Last year I went extreme. Well extreme for me. A hair virgin for most of my life, I went from an always long always natural dark brown hair color and length to well — blonde bob. See here, here, and here.
The processing was so brutal on me. As I came to learn, my hair has a lot of red pigmentation so turned brassy almost immediately, and that led to more and more bleaching and toning. I kept my blonde struggle up for the summer months, then finally couldn’t take it anymore. I needed an out. I have more fun when I’m not blonde thank you very much.
While my stint lasted only 4 months, the damage has lasted much longer and continues today. I’m constantly on the hunt for hair care systems that will take me back to my pre-blonde glory days, and as you know the trial and error can be pricey and frustrating.
Cue hair angels. Neutrogena must be reading my mind and brittle damaged head because they sent me their new triple repair line. I’ve been trying it out this week, and so far it seems to be working. So far, I love that it smells like lychee gummies. I also love that the leave-in treatment is a heat protectant for styling. And from what I understand, this line is reasonably priced and available at any drugstore. Nothing is more satisfying than a quality drugstore secret find.
Will keep you posted on the results, but also want to know if any of the girls out there have suggestions on hair masques, shampoos, conditioners, treatments, that you swear by?
I enjoy controlled loneliness. I like wandering around the city alone. I’m not afraid of coming back to an empty flat and lying down in an empty bed. I’m afraid of having no one to miss, of having no one to love.

Urban Outfitters has been on tour all month launching Without Walls, their fitness lifestyle initiative that is of course accompanied by a cool selection of apparel and gear for any outdoor enthusiast.
I’ve been along for some of the ride too! I played their NY party, and a week later played an equally fun LA party. In LA, Sammy Jo Alonso played equal parts hostess and drill master. And in equal parts made a planking contest feel like a raging night out with the girls. This is part of her magic.
If you’re not already familiar, check out Without Walls. My favorite part of this campaign is that they highlight local brands and the local terrain of each city their in. Every location is uniquely curated. We love that.
