“Roses are red violets are blue.. how about a little rose gold for you?”



Rose Gold is the hot new shade this year not only in jewelry, makeup, and shoes but for hair as well!  Whether you’re a blond, brunette or red-head a little pop of rose gold goes a long way!  I wanted a touch of rose color in my hair so my hair stylist Amanda Meyer from Stem Hair and Body Salon added a subtle rose color.  She gave me Surface Pure Blonde Rose shampoo as well to deepen the rose color as needed.  This shampoo can be purchased at your local salon or click on link I provided above.  The color washes out so you can try it for a few days and see how you like it or use on a continuous basis.  So Ladies and Gents “Roses are red and violets are blue, now go get some rose gold on you!”

“Gray Matters!”

“Gray Matters” indeed especially to me and my family. My sister, mom and myself are headed to Washington D.C. in a few days to advocate for more funding and research for brain tumor survivors with the National Brain Tumor Society and honor my late father AJ Kotich who died of a brain tumor in 2015.  We are “heading to the hill” to meet with representatives from our state of Kansas to tell my Dad’s story and how there is a need for more funding for research and treatment for brain tumor patients.

I wanted to get ready and “gray up” so I had my nail tech and friend Jade Brown at Stem Hair and Body Salon do my nails in two shades of gray. Jade used CND Shellac Color in “Silver Chrome” and CND Shellac Color in “Asphalt.”  She created the gray ribbon with the “Silver Chrome” color.  The colors are pictured below.  So friends remember “Gray Matters!”
