This hair is on Fire!

Wednesday was my hair appointment with my sister, the one and only, most amazing hair colorist in all the land… Nicole Lawrence! Many know her from the Desert Rose Salon in Upland, CA, as Beauty by Nicole Breanne! <You can see her page here> My hair appointments are one of my favorite things because for one, who doesn’t love getting their hair done? Two, I love waiting to see the finished result, and three, I get to spend time with my sister. I had decided I wanted my same color still, but I wanted to add a little something more. The last two times I got my hair done Nicole had been using this new color line she had just got called Jack Winn Color. This has been my favorite that she has used on me so far and she has been doing my hair for years. I love how vibrant the colors are especially my red, and it is so shiny.

Now following the Jack Winn Color Instagram, I found the little something more that I wanted. They posted a picture of long brown hair with just a few blonde balayage pieces. I had a balayage before I went back red and it still shows through a little, but I had never thought of only having a few pieces. I showed Nicole the picture and of course she delivered. I am so in love with what she created, we keep calling it fire. Now I am the girl on fire.

Underdressed Phobia

I recently became an advisor for my sorority and Sunday evening we had our first meeting of the semester. It may have been the first meeting of the semester, but it was my first meeting as an advisor ever. It was only going to be for an hour and at a brewing company, but my first thoughts were “What do I wear?!” I figured it had to be casual since it was so short and where it was being held at. I asked my friend who was going earlier last week and she said she was going casual. But the day of I asked her again because things change, but she didn’t respond! I was left on my own! One of my fears is being underdressed. I just picture myself walking into a place and everyone staring at me thinking “She came wearing that?!” and laughing to themselves. Biggest fear! So I always try to be a little overdressed, but in that “I’m not overdressed, I always dress like this” kind of way… did I even just make sense?

Anyways with no confirmation I just picked a casual and cute outfit (which I did not take a picture of… my bad) of jeans, a purple knit sweater, a white, cream, and tan statement necklace from my last post, and my new tan booties that I posted on Instagram but not on here I just realized! (they were only $21.99 from G Stage!)

I thought it all looked cute and when I got to the meeting I fit in perfectly, everyone was casual. Thanks goodness!

Oversized Blazer!

Sorry this is a late post, I have been a little under the weather, but feeling better now! Anyways, I was just talking to someone last week while wearing my oversized tan blazer, about wanting a gray or a black oversized blazer. Well over the weekend I went to G Stage with my sister and saw one on a mannequin! It was love at first sight. I tried it on and was instantly sold, and get this… it was only $17.99! I was even more sold after seeing the price tag. I can’t wait for all of the other outfits I can create with this! This one is just the beginning!

Haute Hat

I see so many cute hats all over Instagram and I finally got my own! When I bought my favorite sweater of this season at Target I passed by this hat and just glanced at it, and later kept thinking about it. I decided that it would go great with my new sweater, figures I would convince myself to buy it, and when I went back to buy it, it wasn’t on sale anymore! I was so bummed but didn’t give up hope, it was after Thanksgiving so another sale was bound to happen. I couldn’t stop thinking about it though and kept envisioning my outfit wearing the hat with my new sweater. I checked online and it was on sale online only. I ordered it and picked it up in store.

A majority of this outfit is actually from Target, except for the jeans and the necklace. My jeans are from Abercrombie & Fitch and my necklace is from Charming Charlie. Also please admire these heels. I think they are so adorable. I had been wanting pointy leopard heels and of course found them at Target, because Target has everything. I love how they can be dressed up or dressed down, like wearing them here with distressed jeans.

Take a look…

Hello Novel, Long Time

So today I opened my novel for the first time since November. After National Novel Writing Month ended I meant to just take a break, but then the holidays happened and I stopped writing. That is going to change now. Working on it today got me motivated to work on it all over again. My go to background for writing is Sex and the City so I started the entire show over again from season one and worked on my novel for four episodes. I think I like to write to it not just because it’s my favorite show, but because I want to be Carrie Bradshaw. So here is to writing again!

Blanket Scarf, Shift Dress, Over the Knee Boots, OH MY!

This outfit I have been waiting to wear forEVER! Even before I bought all the pieces I was still anticipating wearing it. I saw something similar on Pinterest and was so determined to make it my own! Looking on Pinterest, I pinned this 14 weeks ago! That is how determined I was!


When I have an outfit in mind, it tends to just fall into place. I know what I want so I will not settle for something less, so if it takes me a little longer to find it then it is all worth it for it to be perfect. I finally found the right dress when I was in Old Navy looking for a dress for Thanksgiving. The dress in the picture is more of a bodycon, but I wanted something looser. I found the perfect textured, black shift dress with three-quarter length sleeves, and was loose yet somewhat fitted. The kind of fitted where when you walked it would form to your body rather than flow. (It was also 40% so what other convincing did I need).

Next I got the boots. I have been seeing these over the knee boots all over Instagram and I wanted them! My go to is Macy’s because I have a Macy’s card (seriously so dangerous). I looked up Steve Madden and there they were, the GORGEOUS, but only black! I wanted the gray I kept seeing. I tell you I stalked the Macy’s website almost everyday. Finally when I checked for like the 50th time, they had another color! The picture looked gray but the description said taupe. BUT THEY ONLY HAD SIZE 9! Someone must have returned them. I didn’t give up though, I kept stalking. Finally they had all the sizes, yet the picture still showed gray but the description said taupe. I knew they were different because I did my research on the Steve Madden website, fashion is serious, some research required (lol!). I ordered them anyways, and if they came in and were actually taupe and I didn’t like them, then I could return them. Again, these were on sale too or I probably would not have bought them. Well they came in and were the perfect color, I was actually glad they were not gray because the tone of taupe they are can go with pretty much anything!

Lastly the blanket scarf. I remember Audree from Simply Audree Kate, said last year I think that she got one from Amazon. I searched and found one for $7! It kind of took awhile to come in but once it did, my outfit was complete! I just needed a place to wear it, when the perfect opportunity came, my roomie’s birthday (which is actually today- Happy Birthday!) but we went to brunch yesterday at the Saddle Ranch in Orange. It was a hit! Check it out…

Dress: Old Navy

My Favorite Things

I want start a new thing where I share some of my favorite things with you all. Please feel free to share back your favorites so we can all learn about new, well new anything!

The first two things I want to share are my new Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the color Patina, basically a lip stain, and let me tell you, it is amazing. It literally stays all day, even after drinking and eating, I still come home from work with full color on my lips. I have been curious about the Stila lip stains since my friend Amanda, from Glitter it Gold, started wearing the red one. Her lips always look so flawless when she wears it that I was completely convinced that I wanted one. Now I wear mine almost everyday. The color Patina goes with almost everything and is a great warm color for fall and winter. I will definitely be looking into a brighter color come Spring. I bought mine at Ulta and although it was $24.00, it is totally worth it since you just need to put it on once and you are set for the day, so it will last a long time.


My second favorite thing is False Lashes Mascara by MAC in black. I got this mascara as part of an eye kit where I got a cream eye shadow in dusty pink, a plum gel eyeliner, a double sided brush for the liner and the  shadow, and this amazing mascara! The first time I tried it I was amazed, it worked so well! Even after using it for a month it still looks great! You know how sometimes after you have been using the same mascara for awhile it gets a little dry and doesn’t have the same wow effect? So far this hasn’t done that! For a pricey mascara, $22.00, this is my new go to (other wise I stick with my Maybelline which I will talk about it in a later post).


If you are looking for a new lip color or mascara definitely check these two out.
