nine / dear me…

The blog-tember challenge is a fun, daily blogging challenge created by the
lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love blog.
Today is DAY NINE: Write a letter to sixteen-year-old you. Any advice or funny stories?

sweet 16top right: friends from choir before i moved   /   bottom left: friends from choir after i moved

Hey there, sixteen-year-old me.

This is you from the future at twenty-four! So far, you’ve had a pretty great life. Yes, there are some bad things that have happened and there will be more, but things are going to better because of it.

You just moved and left all your friends at your old school…I know that seems like the worst thing ever, but it’s really not, I promise! You make more friends!! Including one of your best-est friends of life. You do fail your last quarter of English after you move…but it’s not the end of the world either! You still graduate with an honors diploma, so don’t beat yourself up over it.

You’re going to have so much fun your last two years of high school!! You’re in choir, and it’s the best thing ever. Please cherish every moment you can while you’re doing it because, even thought it feels forever away, graduation is so soon. Then you’ll be an adult, which isn’t all you think it is! You get to go to school and work and pay bills! YAY so fun! I’m just going to tell you this quote that mom keeps saying to us:
“You’ll never be as not busy as you are now.”
And it’s so true…you think you’re crazy busy now?…lol no.

I know that having a boyfriend seems like the greatest and most important thing on the planet, but it’s really not. You don’t get a boyfriend until you’re 18, and he’s the greatest guy ever and you’ve had a crush on him since you were 12. AND you marry him! Yup, the fact that you were super picky about who you had a crush on paid off!

Last but not least, PLEASE love yourself more. I know you think you’re fat right now and the lack of boyfriend thing is making you feel worse about yourself but trust me…YOU ARE AMAZING. Maybe instead of beating yourself up and not doing anything about it, do some yoga, or some sort of exercise. Building a routine now would totally help haha. Also, Stop caring about what others think. They really don’t even care about you! Just do you!


What would you say to your younger self?

six / style inspiration

The blog-tember challenge is a fun, daily blogging challenge created by the
lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love blog.
Today is DAY SIX: Share your style. What fashion trends do you love, frequent, or avoid?

 stylejacket+stripes / moto boots / leather scallop top / heeled booties / messy curls
cobalt blue / flowy top / all the stripes / stripes+skinnies+boots

I wear lots of black because of my jobs…it’s the uniform of a hairdresser! so now I wear a lot of black outside of work because it’s all I own!! I do also wear jewel toned colors, deep heathered colors, and grey.

I’ve been loving stripes lately and I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect fitting striped tees. I love semi-fitted tees and really loose tunic length ones. I love skinny pants and leggings.

I love unexpected details like leather and studs and lace. I love scoop hem shirts, split hem shirts. I have also been loving wearing nerdy jewelry like my time turner necklace from the SHOWPONY store. She makes the best stuff ever!!!

My favorite hair is curly, messy and textured. I love natural makeup with an emphasis on the eyes. I love bold lips, dark liner and lots of lashes.

I DON’T really love all these crop tops and  90’s chokers.

What makes up your style? What are you not a fan of that’s popular right now?

one / introduce yourself

The blog-tember challenge is a fun, daily blogging challenge created by the
lovely Bailey Jean of Brave Love blog. Today is DAY ONE: Introduce yourself however you like! Pics, collage, vlog, your choice!

hello there beautiful people!

I am so excited to be doing this challenge again! I have missed blogging so much *crying sad face emoji*
Last year, while doing this challenge, I became way more confident and practiced with blogging and I made some AMAZING and supportive friends.
So I figured I could expect the same things out of it this time as well.

IMG_2259(i just changed my hairs again…LAVENDER<3)

my name is britney

(if your couldn’t tell by my blog name hehe) and it is sooo nice to meet you!
I am 24 and I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and I have no plans of leaving any time soon because all my family and all my in-laws live here!
I’m super sarcastic (in a nice way), I WAY over-exaggerate, like, ever day of my entire life and I laugh at my own jokes cause I’m HILARIOUS. I’m sure you’ll think I am too   😉
I really really really love instagram and pinterest
let me follow you!! (it’s not creepy I swear!! hahahaha)

IMG_2261     IMG_2262

I’m the INFJ personality type which means that I am an extroverted introvert which makes ABSOLUTELY little sense I’m sure.

Basically, I love being around people and talking lots, but I also have to chillax and re-charge after a long day with the people.
Which is basically my job. LOTS OF PEOPLE. and I LOVE IT. but then…no.

my job(s)

I am a licensed hairstylist and makeup artist and I LOVE making people feel beautiful in their own skin whether it’s a guest at the salon with a fresh color or cut or a bride on her wedding day ❤
NOW I am also an instructor at the Paul Mitchell School in Las Vegas    🙂
So far it is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done in my life! I have such a passion for helping, inspiring, and teaching others and when a student tells me that I have personally helped them in ANY way it just makes my whole day LIFE.

my passions

When I’m not beautifying people, I’m beautifying THINGS. My main squeeze is sewing but I’ve basically tried every other craft known to man or WILL try every craft known to man.
I am a HUGE NERD. Disney, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, Unicorns, Fairies…I just love all the magical things.
I love netflix and movies (but not scary ones) and I love reading, though I’m sad to say I haven’t read an actual book for fun in a while…

my family

Family is the most important thing to me in the world.
And my hubby is at the top of that list. I have been married for about three and a half years and it has been the best thing ever. I say that a lot about a lot of things but I SERIOUSLY mean it. Being married to Brodie is the best part of my life. He is so kind and funny and he always makes me feel loved!

So that’s about it for now.
I would LOVE to get to know you more.
Even if we have or haven’t talked much please tell me about yourself! It’ll be nice to check in   🙂
AND please feel free to jump in the challenge at any time!
