Everyone is an expert at something. We’re all specialists in something different. A mechanic may not be able to paint a masterpiece. An opera singer may not be able to drive a semi truck. Some may even have multiple fields of expertise. Obviously these are huge generalizations, picking random professions and mashing them together. I promise I’m going somewhere with this… I feel like hair stylists should be experts in measurements and also in colors. When you say ‘take off a half inch,’ it doesn’t mean take off a half inch of dry hair. It’s being cut wet, not dry, so it should be assumed that it’s X amount of wet hair to be removed. Right?

I had really hoped it was just an issue with my own hair but it rolled over into my daughter’s hair now too. We both said a half inch and it turned into more. I watched the hair fall to the floor and it was too late. She has plenty left, but that’s not the point. I’ve had great cuts and I’ve had just ok cuts. Cuts that started out great and went downhill. And let’s not even discuss the styling at the end. Clearly I need to break up with my hair stylist. It’s a shame that I like the salon for the most part.

Moving along to better things… books! I’m still flying through books. It was a goal of mine to read a lot this summer and once I started, I couldn’t stop! One amazing book after another. I’m completely obsessed with Colleen Hoover. If you like contemporary fiction/romance, you absolutely have to check her books out. I always think, there’s no way I can move on to another book so quickly after just falling in love with the characters and their stories. But then I do, and I fall hard again, totally wrapped up in their stories. Each book has been completely different from the next, but similar in very specific ways. I’m already eagerly awaiting her next…whatever it may be!

In the meantime…

Ice cream!

Every summer I have to make some variety of strawberry ice cream. Since I’m still fully obsessed with all things pineapple, it was a no brainer to combine the two into an irresistible super fruity ice cream.

It’s basically your favorite strawberry ice cream with a fun tropical twist!

Easy creamy and dairy free!! This homemade strawberry pineapple coconut milk ice cream is a must make before summer ends!
