Today I decided to push through with bleaching my hair. I didn’t have my whole head bleached… just a few streaks here and there. I must admit that at first I was pretty skeptic given that I’ve never had blonde hair ever in my whole entire life so I wasn’t sure how it would look on me. I think it turned out great. Mercedes did a wonderful job!

Thank you for my hair, Mercedes! I LOVE IT!

Surprisingly, Jaybee loved it. I didn’t expect a positive reaction from him because he likes the classic look and this is nowhere near classic. I felt even better about my hair when he told me he loved it.

I think I’m ready to bleach my whole head next time. It’s not as painful as others made it out to be. I’ll need to remember to bring my Kobo next time. I can’t sit down for long without doing anything.

I have great news that is totally unrelated to my hair. Terzetto is going back in business but this time our team is equipped with more experience and is more prepared. We’ve decided to do some rebranding because we realized that our initial vision for Terzetto has changed. We’re currently working on a new collection entitled “Renaissance” which we plan on launching on the 2nd or 3rd week of October.

I’ve been stagnant for months and these changes have definitely brought me back to life. I’m glad things are finally falling into place.


And here I am again with another attempt at blogging. This has been my 4th time to write another first entry for the year 2014 alone. I always tell myself that I’ll start writing to document whatever happens in my everyday life and to sort out the jumble of thoughts raging inside my head. I start blogs but then I give up by the 4th or 5th entry. I don’t know if I’ll give up again but I will try my hardest not to. I just turned 25 a couple of weeks ago and I can’t even remember what happened to me these last few years. When I think of yesterday, I think of myself as an 18 year old Fashion Design and Merchandising major slaving on patterns, sketches, and dresses due the next week. Time is flying by far too fast and I’m having trouble looking back and appreciating all the things, all the moments, all the people that brought me to where I am today. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for every little blessing that has happened to me but sometimes, when it’s been far too long, we tend to forget. And I don’t want to forget. This is the reason why I want to write down my thoughts and my feelings… so that I will always remember. 

How about I give you all an introduction? From the many first entries that I’ve written, I introduced myself only once. My name is Janel Gutierrez, 25 years old, freelance fashion designer, 5 feet 1 inch tall, and 140 pounds heavy. I haven’t been considered healthy for a couple of years now. I’m working on getting back to my 25 inch waistline. It’s going to be hard, like writing a decent blog entry everyday, but I’m going to do my best. I love reading books and I cannot survive without music. I have been with my boyfriend for 4 years now and before him, I only had one other relationship that lasted 11 months so I’m not a professional when it comes to love and dating but I’d like to think that I am. I love the beach and I am fascinated with weddings. I think that’s all for now. You’d get know more about me and my life as we go on.

I’m not really good at ending entries. I’m going to have to work on that but for now, let’s end it here.
