Short Hair Don’t Care. (okay, maybe I do a little)

May 20, 2015

Some of you may remember my nightmare of a hair situation awhile back. While I didn’t go into details then, I will tell you now that, long story short, my hair did not react well to color that had been applied to it and instead of it remaining blonde, it turned a hundred shades of GREEN and GRAY. (No exaggeration.) Now, I know that gray hair is “very in” right now (although I’d like to meet whoever claimed that fad…

Friday Ramblings with a side of sass

February 20, 2015

Wow, is it finally Friday?! It’s been quite the week down here in TN, what with the 248720 inches of ice that fell for what felt like 2937652 straight days, and another storm brewing as I type this. Christian and I will most likely continue to be stuck indoors, as this city doesn’t seem to own any salt trucks or shovels. (I know. I’m incredibly dramatic & sassy today. The Chicagoan in me is all, “C’mon, Nashville! Get it together!…

My Style: Daytime Face

January 20, 2015

If I had to choose my daytime makeup celebrity inspiration (because that’s a thing, right?!), it would be Julianne Hough. I love the “fresh face with a pop” look during the day and prefer a minimal/light eye, light blush, and a bright lip. So my daytime makeup routine typically looks like this: under eye concealer, mascara, blush, and bright lipstick.  I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself ‘adventurous’ when it comes to makeup, in that I use the same items each time,…

My Style: Eyeglasses

January 13, 2015

Some of you may have noticed something different about me in last week’s post. The truth is, I have needed to wear eyeglasses for quite some time now. Like, how about since high school? I actually did have glasses (and wore them), until they broke my freshman year of college and I wasn’t about to wear them in public, what with only one “arm”, the correct term being: temple. (Alright, so maybe I did try to secretly wear them while on…

My Style: Vacation Attire

April 17, 2014

Well speaking of vacations and sun and warmth and how this blog will never* be a fashion blog …  😉 No, I haven’t gone all fashion rogue over here but I did put together a little vacation attire inspiration! X and I will be going to Florida next month with my family and considering it’s still in the 30s here in Chicago, warm weather is all I can think about. (Plus, I’m a huge fan of countdowns in general.) Sunny…

Why this will never* be a fashion blog

February 25, 2014

  *Well, never say never, right? So let me rephrase. This blog will most likely never be a fashion blog. Why? Do I have something against style? (Perhaps, yes, on days when I’m wearing all gray sweats with no makeup and dirty hair. Perhaps I have a problem with style. But sometimes comfort rules style, I’m sorry.)  (And I hear you fashion bloggers who might be reading this, “You can do both comfort and style!” No. No you can’t. Not…
