Hair Emergency

I need a change. I made it all the way to my 24th year of life before dyeing my hair…. less that one time in high school I used a semi-permanent red hair dye out of box. Doesn’t count. Now into my 25th year of life (I don’t know why I’m talking like this) I’ve dyed  my hair 5 times and I love it. I wish I was more adventurous with my hair but I’m always scared if I cut it, it won’t grow back or if I dye it too much, it will become a gross texture. The struggle is real.

Here is a fun little timeline of my hair:

1. boring, brown hair

circa 2005. I was 15.. and had a fat face.

2. The first dye job was a pretty severe ombré. I LOVED it. Mark, not so much.


We were at CMA fest, don’t judge the country overload

3. I wanted something more classic for our everlasting wedding pictures than ombré hair. I’m picturing my future preteen seeing pictures of ombré hair and asking “Mom, why did you let your roots grow out so bad before fixing them. Especially for your wedding.” Not interested in dealing with my future mini-mes antics. Went for a deeper brunette.

Now the dark brown has faded back to regular brown and I’m over it. I scoured Pinterest and came up with the following:

Should I try one of these styles? Or just let it go and let the sun lighten it however it wants.



Who is Cocktails & Confetti?

This is also my “about” page, but for those of you who have stumbled upon this site and are wondering what the heck it is supposed to be! Look no further!


Hi Everyone! I’m Rachel Jenney, formerly Rachel Bosyj but as of May 10, 2014 I’m a married woman! My hubby and I are doing something a little more unique for our honeymoon. We bought an RV and are going to travel the US over a few months. I’ve always wanted to blog and figured this would be the perfect opportunity to start. I started blogging on (check it out if you want, I’m pretty proud of it thus far) about 2 months ago just about the prep work for the trip and about our upcoming wedding. I have enjoyed blogging so I decided to start another one. This one much more broad and universal. And so, was born!

I’m a 25 year old Pinterest Fanatic who enjoys cocktails, being a little over dramatic, reality TV, making messes and crafts. I’m a lover of Pure Barre, the beach, my Kindle and my family and friends. I love social media: Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, Blogging, Twitter (in that order, sorry Twitter, I just can’t get into you no matter how many times I try) I also tend to think I’m sarcastic and funny in just the right way (that is to be determined however). I feel just as at home when I am alone or when I am in a huge crowd. I love spending 2 hours+ getting ready and dressing up and I love rolling out of bed and running errands in sweats and no makeup.

This isn’t a fashion blog or a recipe sharing blog. It isn’t a travel blog or a current events blog. It isn’t about working and/or exercising. I am most certainly not an expert in anything nor will I try to get you to love everything I write about. But I will share my thoughts and opinions on anything and everything. You will see a little of everything I mentioned above and a wide variety of other things as well.

I’m not über passionate about any one specific topic but I am passionate about LIFE. I hope that you find something on that falls in like with a passion of yours or that this helps you find your passion!

As always, comments, suggestions or critiques are always welcomed and appreciated!
