These salted caramel apple tarts look elegant and tedious to make but they're just the opposite of hard!

I’ve been mulling over chopping off my hair. It’s short as it is but I want the back to be shorter. Although, I don’t want it to be Kate Plus 8 style but more like Victoria Beckham style but I’m not quite sure I can pull it off. I’ve even tried Photoshopping my face onto some photos I’ve found [read: gigantic fail] but I guess I won’t really know until I do it. For those of you that know me/have seen me in person, do you think I can pull off something like this and this?

Jason is going out of town for four days and I’ve been debating whether or not to take off work Thursday and Friday to have some personal time. I have so much on my plate lately (more on that soon! Very exciting news to reveal!) that I just need to chill, but I’m worried that I’ll get stir crazy for four days just being cooped up in the house. Although I do have episodes of the new season of The Voice to watch (anyone watch it?! I love Gwen Stefani!!!) and my new favorite show is on DIY Network called Holmes Makes It Right. I remember he used to be on HGTV and I watched his show, Holmes on Homes, ALLLLL the time. He dropped off the planet for a while but now he’s back! I love watching all the mistakes he finds – it makes you really weary of contractors but it helps you figure out what to look for when hiring one!

I just chopped off my hair. While I love how light it is, I'm still reaching for the rest of it. It'll grow back, so if it's something you really want go for it!! This apple tart looks amazing! Carmel apples are a must this time of year :)

I'm always ready for an apple tart. As for the hair front - hmm, I went from mid-back length to Beckham short and then went even shorter -pixie style. If you do it, remember it's just hair, but [email protected] it takes long to grow out if you don't like it. I can't wait to see, if you do it.
