Dream Big. ✨


Dream big. Have you ever had a dream of something you wanted to do, but you still haven’t ever done it? I’m, unfortunately, one of the biggest offenders of that. Somethings I’ll work toward and achieve big milestones, but somethings- the things that I am the most excited about I put off for some reason. 

I find myself coming up with subconscious excuses like- I don’t have time/money for that right now. (You could always say that.) I’ll start that project next year. (Next year will never come.) I don’t know how I would even get started. (Hey there’s this cool thing called Google.com) I’d have to reach out to other people. (Cool. You get to build more relationships.) Or even worse… what if no one likes what I do? (Who cares?) What if I am not good at it? (As long as you’re improving, you’ll be growing and that will make you happy!)

My mom gave me this cute little sign for Easter this year. I brought it with me to California not only because it’s pink and gold, but also because I hope it reminds me to throw all of those excuses out the window and start doing the things I’ve told myself my whole life that I’ve wanted to do! The more I think about what I haven’t done that I’ve always wanted to do, the longer the list gets… but it’s exciting!

Does anyone else have this problem? Or is it just me? What excuses do you tell yourself and how did you or how do plan to get over it? 

XOXO,

Best of Blondeography 2016-2017

Blondeography turns 1 year old later this week. I’ve been reflecting about this past year of blogging and remembering all the amazing places that I’ve been able to go, and the people I’ve been able to meet. This past year, my love & I have been blessed to be able to travel around the WORLD. We’ve been able to go to

These are just some of the places that this last year took us. Seeing the world opens our eyes & our hearts, enriches our minds, and builds stronger relationships. I hope that travel will always be a part of our lives.

Food is the second thing that I wanted to highlight, obviously. I honestly should have solely focused on food because I am obsessed with it, but I was trying to play it cool. Food brings people together, and in some cases, we have planned entire trips around food.  Anyways here are the links to some of my favorites:

May we continue to find, eat, & create good food in this world.

And, of course, some of my favorite hairstyles of this past year. I’ve created 6-7 tutorials. All of which are embarrassing haha. Maybe I’ll get better at tutorials this year. Maybe I won’t. But I’ll continue to find or create fun and easy hairstyles to share! I love doing hair because it’s basically free and you can create!

Most of all, thank you to all you lovely readers. This blog is no Vogue or National Geographic, but I love creating, photographing, collaborating, writing, discovering, & sharing. Please continue to give me ideas & reach out to me! What have your favorite posts been? What would you like to see more of?

I can’t wait to see where this next year takes us! I love y’all.

XOXO,
