crown braids


I love crown braids. They look like they are hard to do but really they are SO EASY. And perfect when you decide washing your hair is just plain overrated.  Because it totally is. Who even washes their hair anymore?? (jk guys I do, please be my friend still)

Anyways, IT IS FRIDAY. TGIF am I right? This week flew by for me (thank heavens). Which means only 7 more days till we go up to Utah. Mostly that trip is what I am living for because J & I get to visit my best friend, Shaney + her husband Christian. Seriously they are the best people.

 Utah actually has seasons (because Arizona kind of skips seasons but it's cool) So like, fall will be nice to see and all the leaves and I'm sure I'll see a good handful of basic girls running around in boots and scarves with fresh pumpkin spice lattes in hand. I've never even had one before, I literally just googled how to spell latte.

In other news I just got these extensions and they are coming today and I can't even wait. I've heard soooooo many good things about Laced hair extensions!! You probably don't even care but I'm just soooo excited to get them, you don't even know!!

K I'll leave you with a funny work story. :)
So I'm a receptionist and I get a lot of random calls from solicitors trying to sell our company their services. Here's how it went:
*Phone rings*
Sales guy: Well hello! This is Dave with a company. How are you today!!!?
Me: I'm good thanks, how are you?
Sales guy: Well I, wow, I am so glad you asked that, you'd be surprised how rare it is for people to ask me that. I'm doing so great. Wow thank you so much for asking, so polite!!

*proceeds to try to sell me something our company doesn't need.*
*transfers him to someone else because he won't take no for an answer*

Literally 5 minutes later
*Phone rings*
Sales guy: Well hello! This is Dave with a company. How are you today!!!?
Me: Um I'm good thanks, how are you?
Sales guy: WOW. Well gosh, thank you so much for asking that! You'd be surprised how rare it is for people to ask me that. You are the *FIRST* one to even ask me that today! Thank you, wow, so polite!!!!!!!!!!!!"

*proceeds to try to sell me something our company doesn't need.*

Me: Um haha uh I think you just called here about 5 minutes ago actually, remember I transfered you to ****?"
Sales guy: Oh uh ya know what? Yeah, I do remember that! Your company must have multiple listings in the white pages, I'm sorry. You have a blessed day.


hahah so yeah. There you go! I promise I was polite when I told him he already called. I get calls like that a lot where people try to sweeten me up and act like we're pals before the try to hook and sink in some sale. It's great. And I really do like my job :) it makes for some entertaining stories!

  7. I wish I had enough hair for crown braids. I just don't have thick enough hair to do it! They are so pretty though. I'm so jealous of your extensions too, I have been pining for some for ages now (because of the before mentioned lack of hair). I can't wait to see what you think of them. Happy Friday!

  20. Your hair seriously always looks amazing. Every daaaay. Also I love that that guy was like, "You're the first person to ask me how I am!!!!" when you asked him minutes before. Hahaha. I used to cover the receptionist's breaks sometimes at work and would get some annoying calls. The worst was people who wouldn't take voicemail for an answer and would keep calling. I was like, "Yeah I can't make someone answer their phone."

  24. Your hair looks so pretty like this! Posts like this make me miss my long hair.
    We don't have a receptionist at my job but I'm usually the first person to answer the phone and I get to deal with people like this a bunch too! It's so annoying when they won't take no for an answer! That's a really funny story though! How embarrassed he must have been! Especially after telling you the second time around that you were the first person to ask how he was! Haha.

    1. Thank you!!! My hair is actually just past my shoulders, I just have to braid a little higher to make it work! :) That's awesome!! You totally know what I deal when then haha seriously sales people are so funny when they call. When he said it was the FIRST person to ask him that I couldn't help but laugh a little on the phone :) oops!

    And that call sounds hilarious. I really dislike when people butter me up to get me to buy something. Just tell me what you want to buy
