CURLY HAIR CARE ROUTINE: DAY 2 STYLING



I'm back with day two of my hair care routine! How I even found time to post this video between work and holiday shopping? I really don't know. But I am so glad that it's finally up! I went through a lot of pain making this video. No really, I burned my face a little with my curling wand while filming. Obviously that part did not make it into the final cut, no one needs to see me cry like a baby.

CURLY HAIR CARE ROUTINE: DAY 1 WASH & PREP



OMG, it's been for-ev-er since I've done a video and man am I rusty! I've teamed up with my friends at SEVEN salon to create a series of tutorials on how to care for thick curly hair like mine. Here's the first out of three videos, I hope you enjoy it!

WINTER WEDDING OUTFIT

Last weekend I had the distinct pleasure of attending a dear friend's wedding. The ceremony was beautiful, I got all teary eyed during the vows like I always do. Part of me was emotional over the candid and raw display of emotions between the bride and groom. The other part of me was envious crying out, I want that to be meeee! God, I'm such a bitch. 

On the way home from the wedding I asked my boyfriend, "So, when will we be getting married?" This isn't the first time I've popped the question, far from it. I used to be all sly about it. Every day for like a month, I would leave my computer screen on with my browser window opened to my secret wedding Pinterest board. Just so he would see it every time he walked by my computer. Another time I was trying on wedding dresses -- for a photo shoot I was helping with. Wait, did you think I was trying them on for myself? I'm not that crazy! I did however, text my boyfriend a picture of my favorite dress asking if he thought it was pretty and if I should save it for the near future. 

If the idea of proposing to the love of your life, which I obviously am, wasn't stressful enough. I'm sure my constant pestering is making it ten times worse!

CAMEO THE LABEL


Sometimes I like to go for a swim... inside my clothes. Forget about all that tight, form fitting stuff for a minute. I mean, I sit at a desk all day. The only form I have is that of the Hunch Back of Notre Dame! So, I feel absolutely no remorse in hiding my figure under three layers of oversized clothing. 

The top I'm wearing is by my all time favorite brand Cameo the Label. It has all the glory, intrigue, and excitement of a circus tent. The jeans are actual men's jeans - like from the men's section.

DARK FLORALS


Holy shit balls, was it windy out, just look at my hair flying around! Anyways, I'm making an effort to wear more prints and colors these days. Because, as cool as an all black outfit is, it can get pretty boring.

ENDLESS ROSE

My layering game is going on strong I tell ya! This may sound silly but, nothing makes me feel more stylish than knowing I'm wearing way more clothing than needed. Two tops and a jacket? Hells yes.

FINDERS KEEPERS

Lord knows I love a good sale! So when I saw Fashion BNKR was clearing out some spring inventory, I went a little crazy. Why would I be buying spring stuff in the fall? I can't resist sale prices, for one. And second, Australian fashion labels are really good at making trans-seasonal pieces. Like this floral bustier from the Finders Keepers spring collection, which doubles as a great layering piece for fall. Also, I just noticed the price went down even further after I bought it - ugh, I hate when that happens!
