Well, today is the day that I am no longer in my 20s.  I know some people have very strong feelings about turning a certain age, and 30 tends to be one of them.  I really haven't had any major thoughts one way or another about today, though. 

About 6 months ago, I set a goal to have my interior design business up and running by the time June 23, 2010 rolled around.  Thanks to so many of you, that dream has become a reality!  I thank you all for your support.

I think I am going to do a list of 30 things I've never done before that I want to do this year (well, maybe not all of them this year, but all of them in my 30s?).  After I think about this a little more, I'll update the list and share it with all of you.

All of my friends who've turned 30 before me say it's the best - I believe them!


Cupcake FAIL

After this happened to me a couple of weeks ago (I took it as a sign that someone did not want me to eat this cupcake!):

I treated myself to this for lunch today.  It was delicious.

This was my first vegan cupcake from Swirlz - it was delicious! 

What is your favorite flavor of cupcake?  Clearly, mine is chocolate on chocolate :)


Hollywood Hair

After reading a post by my lovely friend P, I knew I had to try out Hollywood hair.  You see, I've had straight, blonde hair my entire life (except that one ill-fated mousy brown/red during swim championships - sorry mom!) and I've always wondered what I'd look like with a different style.  I love how stars have those long, loose curls and know that I could never, ever pull it off because my hair only holds curl for about 4 minutes.


First up, Blondes!  The picture with the short blonde bob is from Reese Witherspoon's lovely head.  I'm glad that it looks good on me, as it is from the picture I took in when I did my PWC (post wedding chop)!  Is it sad that I am kinda obsessed with MKO's hair (when it's clean)?  And finally, Lady GaGa, I am not.


Strawberry Blondes & Red Heads - I have always loved Jennifer Aniston's hair (POST Rachel, FYI).  As I get older, my hair gets darker, which requires me to spend quite a bit of $$ for upkeep.  Think I should go with Jen's middle style??  Kate Walsh?  Out.


Or, should I channel my inner Ashanti & JLo and go brunette?  Brown-almost-black does nothing for my skin tone, but I do like the lighter shades!


Lessons learned:  90% of women in Hollywood have the same exact hairstyle - middle or side part with loose curls.  & apparently, they walk behind a fan that is pointed at them all day long.


Happy Birthday, Bubble Wrap!

Bubble Wrap turns 50 today - Happy Birthday!  A little known fact:  this sealed-air that protects our valuables  & offers hours of endless entertainment was actually a failed attempt at creating plastic wallpaper!  How ridiculously 1960's, no?  Imagine it paired with wall to wall shag carpeting - groovy, baby! 

We'll stick to grass cloth & large scale graphic prints, thank you. My google image search yielded only one (poorly executed) , thereby solidifying the notion that this isn't a trend likely to catch on anytime soon...

Aside from packaging, I found one other genius use - a pop-a-day calendar!  I can imagine this uber-trendy, fun calendar in both a graphic design office and a kids room.  What do you think?

Start of your day with a bang, err, pop!~kristin
