Hiatus

I know, I know.. How can I take a hiatus when I'm not even that active still in the blogging world.


Things just haven't gone the way I planned them so I'm having to improvise for now. I titled this 'Hiatus' because I'm not coming back to blogging until I can really focus and put forth as much effort as I once did. By then, I plan to have a brand new look, name, and feel to my little home on the web.

I finally am enrolled for my personal training certification. I'm going to try and get it done as soon as possible so I can finally start on the career path I have been dreaming about. My blog will more than likely turn mostly into fitness (but don't worry, I'll still put in some fun stuff too). Hoping I can somehow manage to get my hands on a computer, for myself, sometime in the near future, that'll make this job a hell of a lot easier.

For now, I will continue to read up on my faves, but unfortunately I won't be posting for at least another month or so. If anyone wants to help a sister out on a blog design, that would be awesome! If not, I'm sure I can figure something out :)

One more thing, I am officially retiring the name OneHaoleGirl. I am no longer a haole living in beautiful Hawaii, so it only makes sense. I will now switch all my social networks to taroleannnnn.

Happy Holidays blogland, I sure have missed you. I'll be back soon, promise!

Happy Halloween!

It's Halloweeeen! And one of my favorite holidays! What do you have planned?

I wanted to give some insight on my costume this year, but I haven't taken the pictures and it's just too complicated trying to use someone else's computer to do exactly everything I want/need. So I will be talking about years past and this year.

2012

I usually have to work Halloween and this year was nothing different. The bar I worked at wanted to do a "punk rock" theme but I thought that was boring, so naturally I spruced mine up a little bit and went as a...

Zombie Punk



2013

This year I basically got two Halloweens. The bar I worked at was closing and our last day open was the Saturday before Halloween. Since it was a Mexican restaurant/Tequila bar, it only made sense for all of us to dress up and play the part. It was a huge success..

Day of the Dead



Which meant I was unemployed for the real Halloween later that week. The boys (I lived with at the time) and I decided to throw it back all the way to the 90s...

2014

This year it seems like I have two Halloweens again. Back in April (while still living in Hawaii) the restaurant/bar I worked at decided to throw a "Halfway to Halloween" party. I waited last minute to figure something out, but came up with...

I have to work tonight, like usual for Halloween, so I chose something that is going to be easy to walk around in and hopefully make me some good money :)



I plan on going as Luna. I will wear her collar and everything. I know it's a lot more simple compared to years past but I think it will still be fun.

I wanted to do extravagant makeup to really pull the look together, but I don't see that happening this year. Here are some of my favorite looks from Pinterest...

The Facts About Me

Ok, I know it's the second to last day of October, but I'm joining in on the fun with Taylor and Helene for today's #Blogtober14 post. I've always loved "about me" posts. I know it seems like an easy out when it comes to writing, but it's fun to learn more about the authors of the blogs I follow. So naturally, I'm participating!

The Daily Tay Blogtober14


If you've been around a while, or are brand new, here are some facts about the real Tarole Ann...


-I have a huge passion for yoga. I believe it is a beautiful way to center, understand, and truly respect yourself and how your soul connects to your mind and body. It's also an incredible workout.

-I spent the last 4 years living in beautiful Hawaii (hence the name One Haole Girl). I followed a boy there, learned a ton about myself and life, and am now on a new journey in California.

-Hiking is one of my favorite activities and I'm always down to go, no matter who, what, where, or why.


-I am an aspiring personal trainer and sports nutritionist for women. I have yet to pursue the certification process due to budgeting but will get there eventually. In the meantime, I work in the restaurant industry as a server/bartender. It's hard to walk away from that kind of immediate cash.

-I've never been out of the country and have a blank passport. The number one item on my traveling bucket list is to spend at least 30 days trekking the Himalayas in Nepal.

-I have the most cuddly fur-child, Luna Lovegood, who I adopted from a nearby animal shelter soon after moving to CA. I don't know what I would do without her.


-Speaking of Luna Lovegood, I am completely obsessed with anything Harry Potter. It is on my bucket list to visit the Harry Potter world not only in Orlando, FL but in England as well.

-My dream job is to be a sports broadcaster, and I'm not talking about the pretty face down on the field.

Coming up with facts about yourself is pretty hard so I'm going to move into some of my favorite things (copied you Allie)

Favorite food - Fried okra, but only my Grandma or Dad's.

Favorite movie- Any of the Harry Potter films (but mostly 4, 6, or both 7s)

Favorite color- Purples, blues, greens

Favorite music- Any kind, depends what mood I'm in. My go to is Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds Live at Radio City in 2007.

Favorite football team(s)- College: Arkansas Razorbacks, NFL: Kansas City Chiefs

Favorite Starbucks drink- Iced Venti Triple Shot Soy Chai

Favorite season- All of them in moderation

Favorite accessory- Earrings

Favorite Social Media app- Instagram

Favorite time of day- Dusk

And I'm all out of creativity for now. Thanks Taylor and Helene for the link up!

Saturday Style: University of Florida Gators & Union University Bulldogs

Saturday Style is BACK!

Thanks so much for all of your submissions, I'm loving having this back and running and I hope you love the styles I pick out for you. I had a couple requests from way back when that I haven't been able to fulfill, so naturally I started with those.

The first request comes from my good bloggy friend Logan over at Logan Can. Logan was one of my first friends in blog land and is a a beautiful momma to a handsome little boy named Hampton. Although I'm not a fan (AT ALL) of the team, University of Florida Gators, they are SEC so naturally I will make them first on the request list. Hope you enjoy Logan, thanks for requesting!

The second team requested was unmarked territory for me. Union University Bulldogs out of Tennessee was requested by Jessica of Southern Ramblings. I always love playing around with red and whites, I think they go very well together. It's always fun to have school requested that are unknown to me. It helps me learn a little more about the variety we have to choose from. Thanks so much Jess for requesting! I hope you like what you see.
