Pop, Fizz, Clink, Hello 2015

Pop, Fizz, clink That one blonde chick Happy New Year peeps! Writing 2015 out is weird. With the New Year comes all kinds of New years resolutions! I think resolutions are sorta lame and we all know statistically they fade out by February. This year I’m not doing resolutions I’m only making goals. long term stick to it or die trying goals!

For starters No more excuses! I am master of excuses. I can talk myself out of anything. Not this year! Im going to stop making excuses and just do things! Along with that No more feeling insecure. Its just not allowed. There is way too much pressure associated with being a woman. whether its about your parenting, clothes, hair, make up, fitness, marriage, spirituality blah, blah, blah, the list is endless! We need to own who we are love it and rock it!

Have more patience. Specifically with my beautiful little girls. My babies are amazing and I love them so much. However sometimes the tantrums, non stop screaming and yelling from Kate and never ending questions from Joslyn sometimes it just gets to me and I lose my cool, and I yell! I hate that I do that cause it hurts their perfectly tender hearts. No more! This year I’m gonna be cool as a cucumber.

Health & Fitness.I feel like lots of resolutions are gym/fitness/health related. So let me just tell you guys I have been doing a class at the gym called No Limits circuit 3 times a week. I LOVE it! My goal is to keep consistent doing that and stop drinking Coke once and for all!!!! I think maybe if there were a rehab for Coke addicts such as myself, this would be so much easier! Dah I just love it so much! If anyone has advice on how to kick this habit please tell me!

Become a newlywed. I know. I know, I have been married to my Claude guy for 5 wonderful years. We have 2 little girls and busy schedules. We do have a top secret high five sequence we do after we tag team getting the girls all buckled in their carseats, its awesome and he is literally my best friend. We do get a little together time after the littles go to sleep. We sprawl out on the couch and watch some Netflix. I mean don’t get me wrong, its hot and all.  This year I’m gonna start dong the little things I used to do when we were newlyweds. Leave him an inside joke on the mirror in dry erase marker to make him laugh before work. etc etc. I just wanna be the wife my guy deserves. He works so hard and puts up with a lot from all of us girls. He deserves a freaking medal. Which we will give his this year in the form of hugs and big wet ones (kisses you perverts!)

I would love to hear your goals for this year! Bring on 2015!!! I hope everyone has an amazing year, filled with love, happiness, health, ambition, and most of all fabulousness!!! Outfit details below.

Stay Golden,

Christine

Mini Dutch Side Braid

Mini Dutch Side Braid

Mini Dutch Side Braid That One blonde chick

If you’re like me and you leave all of your important Christmas stuff to the last minute. You leave little time to get yourself all gussied up for your big Christmas Eve bash. Luckily I’ve got you covered with a really fast and lovely solution. It’s a mini dutch braid folks! I’ve called it a mini braid cause its on the small side of your part. This way you get to have pretty swoopy fringe on your face and the added detail and texture of a pulled apart braid.

After this quick tutorial I have included my new favorite beauty finds. Everything is under $20 and most of it can be found at the drug store. If you’re in need of a last minute stocking stuffer for your sister/friend/mom/self any of these would be great!! Merry Christmas, hope you all enjoy your holiday!

Stay golden,

Christine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dutch into fishtail side braid tutorial

IMG_0221

I finally have the tutorial for the dutch into fishtail side braid up that I did when I was chosen as the winner of the instabraid challenge: dutch braid edition. When they posted my photo and said I was the winner I can’t even begin to described how hard I geeked out!! I sprinted over to my husband shoving my phone is his face. He say my photo and said so confused “Okay?” I started repeating “I won, I won, I won!!!!!” a braiders dream come true!! Long story short it rocked my world!!! Shout out to Fave4 hair Texture Takeover spray . You guys you need to try it, its a braid changer!! See what I did there? It is especially awesome if you have fine slippery hair that doesn’t stay in braids very well.  Hope you all enjoy the tutorial. If you do make sure to give it a thumbs up on youtube! If your recreate the look tag me on instagram cause I would love to see it!! or you can also use the hashtag #thatoneblondechickhair.

Stay Golden,

Cozy Sweater and Holiday Lips

Cozy sweater That One Blonde Chick

Who says cozy sweaters have to be casual? I’ve got a few tips for dressing up your comfy warm sweaters!

1. Get them cropped! Like this one I’m wearing and layer a flowy blouse underneath. This way it adds a soft feminine detail and covers your bum so you can get away with wearing leggings in public its a win win!!!

2. Wear black jeans. I don’t know what it is but they really do dress up any outfit. Plus they are super slimming! this pair of Joe’s are my go to! I never spend lots of money on jeans but this pair I highly recommend.

3. Wear a heeled bootie. These boots are also my go to! They are a low heel and super comfy so I can look fancy while doing my mommy gig and doing unfancy things like scooping my screaming tantrum throwing toddler off the ground of the super market. I know its not what the boots are for but I think that Steve Madden could have a major ad campaign on their hands. I’ll just need a 30% royalty. *Wink*

4. Add a bold red lip! I love the Christmas season cause its the magical time of year when everyone busts out the red lipstick! Oh you’re invited to a last minute holiday function? Slap on the red lips and Bam instant holiday look. You might be saying to yourself ” But Christine, are all reds created equal?” I’m here to tell you my friends thats just not true. There are blue reds, orange reds, basically just lots and lots of different reds. They are all lovely but when Christmas rolls around I ALWAYS reach for my slightly pinkish red  Maybelline Are You Red-dy I love this shade but even more than that I just love a good pun. So thanks for that Maybelline. Its a crisp color with a creamy satin finish. It will stay put while you gorge yourself with the cheeseball and crackers. Tried and true peeps! you’re welcome! haha

5. Throw on a beanie. This doesn’t always make it dressier per say. It does finish the outfit.  If you’re heading out to diner with friends or a casual setting and you think to yourself “To beanie, or not to beanie?” ALWAYS BEANIE!

Outfit details at bottom of the post. Thanks for stopping by!

Stay Golden,

Christine
