TGIF Rants and Random Writes

Dehydrating cookies of goodness. Topped with organic honey.

I’ve busy “baking” for Averie, the lovely winner of my Blogiversary Giveaway from last week. I love playing in the kitchen. Especially if sweet things are assembled.

Who the heck out there is ready for Friday?! Sheesh, am I ever ready! I’ve had the week from hell and I’m pretty sure my adrenals have taken a little hit with all the added stress I’ve placed on myself. And to top off my lovely, insane week, I got my hair cut and colored yesterday… first time for a coloring in about two years… let’s just say, it did NOT turn out the way I asked or wanted. And now, I’m stressing out from this. I paid way too much and got what looks like the combination of a skunk running through a rainbow. The chocolatey dark brown with a hint of redish turned into, let’s call it, raspberry redish-purple, and the carmely highlights are now larger strips of orangey-“blonde.” I’m completely not trying to ruin your Friday, but I just had to get this out in the open… I’m mortified. The cut is nice though. Ug!

Any suggestions?! Tips? Comments? HELP! I desperately need to have it dyed one dark color now (my poor beautiful brunette hair!) but they can’t get me in until next Wednesday… and do I really want to go back to them?!

At least it’s Friday and I have a long weekend and it’s a holiday and I can finally relax, but I’m not exactly wanting to make an appearance in any public place.

Rant over (although any feedback is still welcome in the comment section).

Cookies. These were a trial run of what I’m sending to Averie. My raw version of the S(tandard)A(merican)D(iet) snickerdoodle cookies that we all know and love dearly- only WAY healthier! Mine include almond meal, chia seeds, vanilla extract, Stevia, cinnamon, yacon syrup, coconut butter, and a few other key ingredients. Low on the sugar, high on the nutrients.

I’ll be posting more trial runs and hopefully a final this weekend, possibly including a recipe.

Completely random and because I think I’ve run out of new pictures to post, here’s a little taste of my desserts lately:

Simple and sweet, plain non-fat greek yogurt topped with juicy ripe raspberries and organic honey. Really, it’s delicious… and pretty. All I need are some blueberries and I’ve got myself a patriotic meal.

What are your plans for celebrating the 4th of July?

  1. […] sent me some raw, vegan, homemade cookies!! Yes, I took a bite of one before I even thought about taking a photo. Yes, it was fantabulous. […]

  2. Those cooking look amaaaazing. It was a quiet 4th of July here in the UK – just another Sunday. But the sun was shining so I can’t complain. I was celebrating in spirit. =)

  3. Geez, I am so sorry! I think we all know the stress of a bad hair salon visit. I’ve never colored my hair (for fears like this actually!), but I would go back to them and make them fix it. You shouldn’t have to pay more to another salon.

  4. I would go back to the same salon and make them fix it until you like it, that is what you paid for when you went there in the first place and that’s all you should pay for, your initial visit 🙂

  5. oh man!!! i’m sorry that your hair didnt turn out the way you wanted to! i would suggest going on and searching for a different hair salon!!! that way you can ensure that theyll do a good job.. im always soo cautious about people cutting my hair because im sooo scared that theyll mess up!

    your cookies look delish btw.

    not sure what im gonna do for july 4…… but fireworks WILL be involved =)

  6. Sorry about your hair. I am sure the color will fade out soon. When I used to color my hair I had a few episodes that I did not like the color, but over time I learned to like it. I know that does not help at the moment. But I am sure it is beautiful no matter what girl! Sending thoughts of happy thoughts your way. I wish I had some great tips to give but I don’t Sorry.

    Cookies look great though. Weekend plans are making a bunch of good food and spending time with the family!
