Hair
As soon as the weather starts to cool, I want to cut my hair.  It happens every autumn.  I didn't do it last year because to achieve the cut I want, my hair needed to grow.

It's been growing for a year.  It's really long and my bangs are half way grown out. Currently, it has platinum streaks in the back and is carmel colored all over.  My goal has always been something like the haircut on the left.  In between, I've been coloring it to jazz it up.  Otherwise, I would have chopped it off months ago.

Lately, I've grown restless.  I can't stand for my hair to look ho-hum.  Should I go ahead and cut it off like the picture on the right or persevere and wait till it's ready for the haircut on the left?  Is it risky to get such a radical haircut like the one on the left?  I'm a real estate agent not a fashionista but it's so bad ass.  I'm conflicted! What do you think?

novel novels

Novel-novels-september
Heading out to Wonderful by Robert Goolrick was a quick read.  His first book, The Reliable Wife  was dark, depressing and engaging.  In Goolrick's second novel, there's a similar gloomy slant. I enjoyed it immensely. It's well written, the characters are interesting and I couldn't wait to see how it was going to end.

el chucho

El-chucho
Last night, my husband and I finally tried El Chucho, the new taqueria in Columbia Heights.  It was a beautiful evening and we sat on their roof deck. Unbeknownest to us, they have a wonderful Happy Hour.

riveting rooms

White-fireplace
Yesterday's crisp Fall weather was amazingly refreshing.  It made me think of sweaters, cozy dinners and fires.  This room evokes the same feeling.  It's simple yet warm.  The stacks of white candles has been done a million times but it's still stunning.  The rest I can describe in one word: perfection.

Stocking-the-bar-cart
I've wanted a bar cart forever.  I love the way they look and they're a handy place for all your liquor and accessories.  My husband got me one for our fifth anniversary…he's the best.  Have I mentioned that?

union market

Union-market
I'm a big fan of food markets.  On trips to Philly and San Francisco, my favorite memories were visiting Reading Market and Ferry Plaza.  Therefore I was thrilled when DC decided to create something similar with Union Market on 5th St, NE.

let them eat cake

Chocolate-cake

One of my guy friends loves a classic yellow cake with chocolate icing.  His Mom recently passed away and I thought his favorite treat might cheer him up.  A cake isn't going to erase the last couple of weeks but a piece of homemade goodness can never be a bad thing.  Enjoy.
