why i cut my hair

For years, when I would mention anything about cutting my hair all I ever heard was “don’t do it”. Don’t do it because I’ll look younger, or I won’t be as sexy, or because my hair is too pretty to be wasted. I was flattered, but it wasn’t what I wanted to hear. 

Of course, I loved having long hair. It WAS sexy, mermaid-like, yada yada. After all, I’ve had long hair for majority of my adult life. Last time I had it shorter was in 6th grade so I kind of believed people when they said it’d make me look younger. Which is usually a good thing for women in their 20’s but I’m not there yet. 

I listened to everyone and kept my hair long. I hated every minute of it. It was heavy and would literally weigh down my head. To the point where if I hadn’t washed it in a few days it would get heavier and physically hurt my head. Whether it was in a pony tail, bun, or even down sometimes, it hurt! Having it down was impossible, you guys know I’m all about comfort so the amount of inconveniences accompanied with it being down just wasn’t worth it. 1) It was hot- I live in Miami and I’d rather not feel like I have a towel around my neck suffocating me. 2) bending down or trying to get nearly anything done with my hair in my face blocking most of my peripheral vision was just annoying. 3) I did not have time or energy to style it most of the time. I really only liked it curled in beach waves so if I couldn’t do that, up in a high bun it went. I complained about how much I wanted to chop my hair off all the time,  my friends and boyfriend can vouch for that.

Finally, last week I decided I was done. I was done inconveniencing myself for other peoples opinions. At that point, I really didn’t care if I loved a short cut on me or not I just wanted it off. Also, once I realized that for the last month of living in LA I hadn’t worn it down ONCE…I asked myself what the point of having long hair was? I was wearing it in a high bun for every occasion and when I did try to wear it down it’d go up within the first 30 minutes. Once I came to that realization, I totally got behind the idea of cutting it. 

So, I started my search on

H&M STUDIO DRESS // RAINBOW ZEBRA

April 7, 2019

Dress: HM (love this whole collection!). Shoes: Mercedes Castillo (I also got these).…

Last night, I launched my side project that I’ve been silently ideating and working on since the summer. It’s been a long time coming and I’m so excited that it’s finally in the wild 🤪 @skincontactnyc is a dinner and events series birthed out of my love for fucking good wines that are intimately connected to Mother Nature as they should be. Skin contact is a process in winemaking where grapes skins are steeped with their juice but also a euphemism for intimacy, something we could all use more of in New York :’) My hope for this series is to bring people together and breathe life into meaningful connections. To silence the noise and just be with diverse individuals over a beautiful meal with beautiful natural wines 🍷⁣ ⁣ Wine is one of those ubiquitous things that, for some reason, still remains elusive and somewhat elitist when it should really just be fun and approachable. I want to foster a community where we can simultaneously have fun and also learn about wine because we should always always always be students in some form 🤓⁣ ⁣ Thank you to these special people who made this launch dinner possible (this caption is about to be the longest one I’ve posted to date): @selrrose and @lovebymj for bringing my vision to life and for hosting me and 12 special, inspiring friends. @camilleriviereselection for being like a mentor/wine angel figure and trusting my platform to showcase your beautiful portfolio. My friends @themattkwan and @dylansprouse for your camaraderie and having @allwisemeadery at the dinner. @rachelsunae who designed these dainty and spot on florals for the dinner. All my friends who have nonstop supported me during the craziest past six months of my life. And thankful for ME for going at ideas that once intimidated me or mentally exhausted me. I hope you all strive to live a life of passion and pursuit. That’s all, kids. I love you ♥️ ⁣ Future dinners will be ticketed and open to the public so WATCH THIS SPACE @SKINCONTACTNYC @SKINCONTACTNYC @SKINCONTACTNYC. So many fun ideas brewing and on the horizon 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷 (photos by @ggorin)
