Hey, guys! So recently I was feeling a bit spontaneous and decided to chop 5 inches off my hair. I mean it was already pretty short but now it’s even shorter and I’m absolutely loving it! Here are some pics I recently shot of my new ‘do!
I also decided to add more blonde to my hair in anticipation of summer. It took three very long hours (especially since my hair appointment was right after my SAT exam,and yes, it was just as bad as everyone says) but in the end it was worth it.
Let me know what you think about my hair in the comments and also let me know if you’re planning on changing up your hair for summer!
Happy Friday! Friends, let’s climb into the Wayback Machine and turn the dial to 1996, where we will experience the finest in bitter social satire, jangly pop hooks and fantastically skinny British boys. Put on your dancing shoes and check your class issues at the door—it’s time to get down with the common people.
Many of Clare’s and my friends have asked us about our experience getting our first tattoo. Although Clare and I both follow many beauty gurus on Youtube, and have found a ton of videos that explain a tattoo’s meaning or how painful a piercing is, none (that we have watched or found) give a first-timer’s point of view. So Clare and I made a video for you (and our friends) explaining the process and pain level—and we threw in some helpful tips, too.

Every year, my mum and I wake up bright and early for the Beauty Trend Show at our local Nordstrom. The tradition continued this past weekend, and it was awesome—as always.
We arrived around 7:45 am, received pink gift bags, filled up on some much-needed caffeine, and grabbed some seats for the show. Before the show started, we filled out raffle cards, hoping to win something. (My mum ended up scoring some Smashbox goodies!)
Spring was in full bloom this year, and pink was definitely the theme color. We saw gorgeous new looks from YSL, Estée Lauder, MAC, Clarisonic and more.
I absolutely loved hearing about all the new beauty and hair products, then trying them out after the show.
After lots of sampling and shopping, we took lunch break at the Nordstrom Cafe.
Crab Mac & Cheese and Earl Grey tea. So good… So, so good.
Before leaving I had the opportunity to get my hair done by Morroccan Oil stylist Michelle. Michelle was so sweet and showed me all the tricks and tips to get that relaxed wavy look.
So it’s been H-O-T here in SoCal, and in an attempt to escape the sizzling heat, I took an impromptu trip to Laguna Beach. Although I didn’t manage to spot LC or Kristin (“Laguna Hills” references, haha) I did manage to wear a supercute outfit, so of course I had to snap some pics!
I struggle with wearing color—I tend to wear black, grey and white the most. But every once and a while I try to step outside my comfort zone.
This skirt is totally out of my comfort zone, especially with the neon floral pattern and the peachy-pink background color. But since there is navy in the floral pattern, I paired it with my navy top with white striped sleeves, and my white Air Forces.
It’s been a while since I did a post on music, and I’m way too obsessed with the new Mumford & Sons album to not talk about it.
I’ve always been a fan of Mumford & Sons, and their new album, “Wilder Mind,” continues to amaze me. They just keep getting better and better. “Wilder Mind” has a different feel from their previous albums (less banjo, more electric guitar), but it still stays true to their folky/rocker style.
Here are two of my favorite songs from the album. I’m not gonna lie, it was really hard to pick just a few. Be sure to check out the whole album—it’s crazy good.
One thing I love about Mumford & Sons is how, in most of their songs, they just start rocking out. You know what I’m talking about. It’s that climax and you start rocking out, flipping your hair back and forth… Yeah, it’s jam time. In “Snake Eyes,” after 2:12 jam time is non-stop.
Tompkins Square Park
I’ve got “Tompkins Square Park” on repeat. I can’t stop listening, but I’m not sick of it, either. I think this song perfectly captures the new, more electric sound of this album. It def shows how musically talented they are, too.
Are any of you guys fans of Mumford & Sons? What do you think about their eccentric album? Let’s talk music!
Prom is right around the corner. You’ve got your dress, but how are you going to do your makeup? My best friend, Kenya, is a great makeup artist, and she volunteered to show you how to do a glam gold eye that’s perfect for prom.
Happy Friday! It’s a gorgeous day here in Seattle, sunny and warm enough that the whole city seems to be outside celebrating. Today’s song has nothing to do with any of that—except that it’s a really good song by someone we hope to hear a lot more from.
Now get out there and shake your tail feathers, friends. Let’s keep this dance party going all weekend long!
