5 Things you didn't know about Crazy Colored Hair

5 Things you didn't know about Crazy Colored Hair

I wish someone had told me

Everyone love the beautiful mermaid hair, and pastel colors, but here are some things to think about before committing to it!

1. If you have dark hair you will have to bleach it

It isn't that big of a deal but split ends and damaged hair are sure to ensue

2. The color will fade in DAYS

I had read that the color will fade in days, but I thought surely mine wouldn't. IT WILL, and IT WILL SUCK.

3. The dye gets all over the shower

Every single time you wash your hair, the dye will stain the shower. It can also get on clothes and pillow cases- thankfully that hasn't happened to me.

4. To keep the color, you have to wash your hair in cold water

I can't live without my warm shower, but every time it comes to washing my hair I like like the girl from the exorcist trying to keep my body out of the cold water.

5. It is so much fun

Despite the color being a little bit of a hassle, I love it. And the color isn't going away anytime soon.

22 New Things That I Want To Try Now That I'm 22

A bucket list for my 22nd year.


"I don't know about you but I'm feelin' 22," I have waited 6 long years to sing that and actually be 22! Now 22 doesn't seem like a big deal to people because you can't do anything that you couldn't do before and you're still super young. But I'm determined to make my 22nd year a year filled with new adventures and new experiences. So here's to 22.

1. Go sky diving.

What's crazier than jumping out of a plane? (Although I'll probably try indoor skydiving first.)

2. Go cliff jumping/diving.

I must be the only Rhode Islander who hasn't gone to Jamestown and jumped off a cliff.

3. Ride in a hor air balloon.

Up, up and away.

4. Try out skiing.

Cash me in the next Olympics, how bout dat.

5. Try out snow boarding.

Shawn White, I'm coming for you.

6. Go bungee jumping.

Because at least this time I'll be attached to something.

7. Go to Portugal.

I mean I'm Portuguese so I have to go at some point, right?

8. Go to Cape Verde.

Once again, I'm Cape Verdean so I have to go.

9. Vist one of the seven wonders of the world.

I mean hey, Egypt's on, my bucket list.

10. Try out surfing.

It's only natural that somebody from the Ocean State knows how to surf.

11. Learn a new langauge.

Because my little bit of Portuguese, Spanish and Latin isn't cutting it anymore.

12. Travel to a state that I've never been to before.

Fun fact: I've only been to 17 of the 50 states.

13. Go paddle boarding.

Pretty boring but I've never done it.

14. Go scuba diving.

I'm from the Ocean State so I guess I should see the ocean up close and personal.

15. Learn how to line dance.

There's actually a barn in my state that does line dancing, so this one will definitely get crossed off.

16. Go kayaking.

All this water around me and I haven't done a lot of the water activites.

17. Stay the night in a haunted hotel room.

I bet if I got my friends to come with me, it would be like the Suite Life of Zach and Cody episode, minus the ghost coming out of the wall but you never know.

18. Get my palms read.

Because who doesn't want to know their future.

19. Go to a medium.

Like a medium that can communicate with people that have died.

20. Take a helicopter ride.

Air plane: check Helicopter:....

21. Sleep under the stars.

Because sleeping in a tent is more like glamping than camping

22. Just to try new things in my everyday life.

Whether it's trying a new restaurant, getting something different at my usual restaurants, changing my usual style, going on the scary rides at amusement parks, and bringing things I used to do back into my life now.

I hate Getting haircuts

It's okay, to be honest about if you like your haircut or not, but I never speak up.


Yea cutting your split-ends off and getting a fresh new haircut can be a great thing and a super fun experience if you enjoy it but for most of the time, I hate getting haircuts. The last time I got a haircut was a months ago... I was basically forced to go by my sister because I hadn't gone in a whole year. Why didn't I go? Because I always have the worst experience at salons.

This is everything I hate about getting haircuts:

1. Small talk with the barber

This is one of the main reasons I HATE going to a salon to get a haircut. I hate small talk with strangers who I know nothing about, it's very awkward and full of fake laughs and smiles.

2. They always cut shorter than you ask for

This happens to me every single time. I ask for one or two inches off, and I'm left with a bob I absolutely hate. I wish they would actually listen to what you want instead of doing their own thing.

3. I don’t know what style to ask for

I'm an awkward person in places like the salon, I don't like telling people what I want because most of the time I don't know because I can be picky and regret it.

4. I feel like the people at the salon are judging me

Sometimes they can be rude to you for no reason and make you feel like they're talking about you or judging you and it's the worst feeling.

5. Hate having to pay so much for a quick trim

My last haircut cost me $40 to get one to two inches cut off… while they only charged my sister $20 because she has shorter hair. I think that was ridiculous. They even charge for every extra thing and they don't even tell you till you're paying at the register.

6. My hair grows out slowly

Once I get a haircut, my hair looks shiny and healthier but it takes forever to grow back!

7. They always try to convince you to do something you're not there for

They say you should get your eyebrows done because they look a mess and they keep mentioning it after you've said no already or say you should get highlights which cost so much, and sometimes they end up convincing you.

8. Waiting

Some of the times, if the salon is too busy, they make you wait for such a long time, and yes, I know being busy is not their fault but whenever it's busy, the salons I got to seem to do nothing about it. They have stylists just sitting there on their phones or gossiping and not working when there are a lot of people waiting. It gets frustrating.

9. I hate it for the first two weeks

Doesn't everyone?

10. You pretend it’s ok when it’s not

It's okay, to be honest about if you like your haircut or not, but I never speak up. Mostly because I'm scared and they cant fix it if its too short or the style is not what I want.
