I’m heading out to get my hair cut after six months since my last appointment. It has grown out all the way down to my… chin? Not even my chin. The bangs can be pulled down past my nose, but in back I’m sporting the most fabulous shaggy mullet style. I’m trying to stick with this whole ‘growing out the pixie’ thing, but blech to the in-between stage! I’m hoping I’ll dislike it less once it’s cleaned up a bit.
This DIY card-making kit (spotted here) is brilliantly funny.
Apparently people can’t tell Bubly and LaCroix apart in a blind taste test (with a very small sample size). I’ve only tried two Bubly flavors and I think there’s a weird aftertaste, but the cans are cute, so…

Did you think we’re all eating stuffed or deep dish in Chicago every time we order pizza? That’s tourist pizza. I’ll take my thin crust cut into squares, please.
Experimental plastic furniture is beginning to drip, bulge, and burst.

You are so sweet! And thanks for making art that speaks so clearly to my pixie-growing-out soul.

ugh, so true about chicago pizza! I grew up on chicago thin crust, cut into squares. Tried deep dish as a teen and never understood what the fuss was about.

I sent my friends a screenshot of one of your IG stories a few weeks ago telling them I wanted your haircut! They all agreed it was adorable. I didn’t even realize it was an in-between and not the style you were going for. :D

I moved to NYC from Chicago recently and I am a convert to Polar sparkling water. Their coconut doesn’t taste like sunscreeen (and I really liked LaCroix’s coconut!), their vanilla is to die for – and they constantly have new seasonal flavors that are amazing.

I was going to comment on your Instastories the other day that I thought your hair looked very cute! I think you had the bangs pulled back.

Currently rocking the Conan O’Brien here. Next Wednesdays trim can’t come soon enough. I hope I resist the temptation to just cut it all off again.

I’ve been growing a pixie out for 2 years. It’s excruciating. Agonizing. Embarrassing. 2 years of “meh” hair and i’m finally just past my chin (I did cut it a lot in between)…I hope your cut goes well!
