THREE STEP SPACE BUNS

Monday, July 30, 2018

Easy Space Bun Tutorial

I know I'm about 500 years late on the space buns trend, but better later than never and now I can't get enough. My hair is finally long enough to do a good bun that I haven't been able to do in awhile. (& yet I'm considering chopping... stop me) 

BITS & BAUBLES | JULY EDITION

Friday, July 27, 2018

I’ve got a lot of outfits & posts planned out, but it’s been a doozy of a couple weeks on my brain (mental health! LOVE IT) & I haven’t been able to sit & shoot photos/ write what I wanna write. So I’m bringing July in review a little early, & hopefully next post I’ll be back with fresh eyes. And fresh coffee.

Andres Machado Shoes For Petites

There's a reason I don't feature shoes often, and why I always link ~similar~ shoes in outfit posts instead of exact.

ON MY TENDENCY TO WANT TO BE MORE

Friday, July 20, 2018


Last year I wrote a piece on a new show titled The Bold Type, about three women navigating friendships and careers at a New York magazine. Modern day Sex & The City-esque, minus Carrie, I wrote about it filling a hole in television, with its feminist message and feel good humor. 

THREE REAL WAYS TO BEAT STRESS

Active Ways To Beat Stress

Oftentimes blog posts talking about beating stress will give tips like 'take a bubble bath!' and 'call a friend'! & while those are so helpful for self care and can work wonders for a gal, it's not the only thing you can do when stressed. It's important to look at the stressor itself and figure out how to nip it in the bud, so to speak. (am I the only one who thought it was nip it in the butt and imagined someone kicking you in the hindquarters as a child?)

Forever 21 Floral Shift Dress

Let's call it the midsummer shopping itch. It's most definitely something I just made up as I sit in this coffee shop, but whatever. Go with it, shall we? I've gone a little 'add to cart' happy and obviously I'm sharing it with you because lol I'm horrible and want you to also buy the things. BECAUSE THEY'RE CUTE, OKAY? 

WHY I BEG TO DIFFER THAT BLOGGING IS DYING

Why I Don't Think Blogging Is Dying

It seems the good ole blogosphere has been split down the middle the past year or so, as there has been an increasing number of so called instagram blogs and less actual blogs. We're a want it now society, anything more than a screenshot to get clothing details emailed seeming like a daunting task. Reading 300+ words? No thank you. So the question causing debates all around: is the art of blogging dying? 

A HINT OF ROSE GOLD | TIPS FOR TINTING

Tips For Rose Gold Tint

Experimenting with my hair is the same as experimenting with clothes for me: a creative way of expressing how I'm feeling, the ~aesthetic~, if you will. (yes I do use that word too much, no I won't stop) I've always wanted to try out a fun color, but actually dyeing it lavender or rose gold is a commitment I'm never sure about. My only tousle with pink dye was one summer with my cousins, streaking the fronts hoping to get an Aria Montgomery pre missing Alison look, but just ended up looking like I had a bit too much fun in the dye. We live, we learn.

THINGS TO HAVE CONTROL OVER IN A WORLD OF NO CONTROL

Friday, July 6, 2018


Over the years the realization has hit  that a huge anxiety trigger for me is feeling out of control. We've chatted about this before, but I joke about it a lot because, oooh the irony. What do we really have control over in life? Not the way people perceive us or the change in the weather or why we just got cut off on the freeway.

Being An American In 2018

I was always taught to be proud of where you're from, and so from the time I was old enough to understand, I had a certain appreciation for America. Sophomore year of high school we dug deep into Ellis Island and the rich history of culture. It wasn't the first time I'd learned about it, of course, but the first time I truly understood. Everyone who docked onto the Island was coming here in search of a better life, the American dream. The textbooks don't always teach the not so pretty side of our history, however, nor the present.
