My hairstylist did an amazing job and got exactly what I wanted - I am so happy with it! She thinned out the bottom of my hair, too, which is really nice because it always gets super thick and at the ends it kind of explodes if you know what I mean.
I haven't had bangs since I was a lot younger but I'm glad I took the risk and decided to try something other than the same haircut I've had for years. :)
In other news, I went to this place called Vitality Bowls yesterday that I've been meaning to try out. They make a bunch of acai smoothie bowls and top each with a different combo of fruit, granola, nuts, goji berries, and honey.
I got their original bowl which was acai, banana, strawberries, flaxseed, soy milk, and apple juice, and then it was topped with banana slices, strawberry slices, granola, goji berries, and honey. It was so good!! I never thought to top a smoothie with even more fruit - but I loved it! Definitely worth the $8 it cost.
I loved the bowl so much I considered going this morning and getting one for breakfast - when I realized that I could probably make a bowl that was almost as good (and one that had more protein) at home!
Here's what I came up with:
Banana Pineapple "Vitality" Bowl
Prep Time: 5 min
Ingredients (1 bowl)
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1/2 frozen banana
- handful fresh blueberries (optional)
- 1 1/2 scoops vanilla protein powder
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/3 cup milk (add more/less to desired consistency)
- 1/4 cup granola or other cereal
- 1 cup fresh fruit (I used blueberries and raspberries, but any fruit will work)
- drizzle of honey or coconut butter (optional)
blend ingredients for the smoothie base until desired consistency is reached. since it's a smoothie bowl, the thicker, the better!
top with granola, sliced fresh fruit, and any other desired toppings.

I would've added spinach to the smoothie base (which I would highly recommend! easy way to get your veggies in early in the day!) but I ran out of spinach since I've been using so much for my 7-day Green Smoothie Challenge. This bowl's going to have to count for today since I don't have time to run to the store - but tomorrow I'm probably going to make another bowl like this for breakfast and I'll make sure to include spinach!
what's the biggest risk you've taken with your hair?
ever topped a smoothie bowl with fresh fruit?
