Ext. Home - Dusk
Almost out of sight, the sun dimly lights the street with traces of grey and pastel giving a creating a sense of magic in the air. Fingers intertwined they walk until they are are standing out front of the white fence. He lifts her chin to have her face meet his, as they slowly disappear. 

There's hardly an outfit I love more than one that is pink and accented with pearls and fur. So luxurious, no? Even though my pearls aren't real but yours probably aren't either so whatever. This particular ensemble lead my mind to the olden (there is no red squiggly line so I'm assuming that's a real word?) days when dates consisted of being met at the door with flowers and dropped back off at the same place with a kiss. This stunning chiffon The White Pepper dress gave me the opportunity to play pretend as a ghost couple from the past who are unable to let go of this moment. All done up in their finest outfits they relive their last date over and over. For those of us who are living breathing humans, I would recommend something like this for any upcoming holiday parties you might be attending. The dress is such a dreamy piece on its own, just pair it with an expensive *looking* fur jacket and something sparkly and you're good to go! Also, random, but ignore the weird indent in my chest, I wore some strapless bra thing that I didn't realize would cut what little boobs I have off in such a weird way, but alas I took the picture from my memory card and now that's all I can look at. I waited to post these for several days now because I was hoping to retake the photos since I'm not 100% happy with them, and because iPhoto corrupted half of them making them unusable. In the end, I just couldn't delay any longer. At least the dress looks good!

Goody Clean Radiance Update and Giveaway!


Int. Suite - Day
A heap of outfits that "just won't do" lie at her feet in front of the full length mirror. She steps into a shiny pair of black heels and twists from side to side.

RISING UP

As she twists she begins eyeing her look beginning at her shoes and ending at the top of her hair. She runs her brush through one last time before nodding satisfyingly and reaching for her keys.


Err, hope you guys don't mind looking at my mug for a bit because there's quite a few photos of it here. Normally, I try to avoid taking face only self portraits because I have found when I start editing them that I'll notice some "issue" with myself and wind up blowing the whole thing out of proportion  until one night I'm standing in front of the mirror with 50 different creams ready to perform some sort of Princess Diaries type ritual.  Also, because there are much more interesting things to look at such as the clothes I'm wearing or the styling of the photograph. In this case, I was trying to capture my good hair day, and well, face kinda had to go along with it. I mentioned previously in THIS post that I had begun using the Goody Clean Radiance brush and was experiencing very good things. Today I'm back to gush about it a little more...and give you beautiful people a chance to win some major hair swag! If I could reverse the roles right now and see YOUR faces I would like to imagine they are filled with joy. 

After having continuously used the brush from the first time I posted I've noticed even more of an impact that it has made on the (ugh I hate to say this word) greasiness of my hair. Dry shampoo used to be a without fail every day thing for me, but thanks to Clean Radiance I've been able to cut down to using it more like every two days while still keeping  the same fluffiness, or I guess volume is the "proper" word for that. Certainly, I intend to keep it as part of my daily routine forever and ever and everrrrrrrrr. It's you and me until the end, kid. Ride or die.

Now, for the moment we have all been waiting for. Yes, all of us. You get a chance at some bomb a prizes and I get to play Oprah. Today, I have teamed up with Goody and Acorn Influence to bring you the chance to enter 
1. A Chi Straightener and CROC blowdryer (valued at $200)
2. Goody Basket (valued at $100) *2 winners*
3. $25 Walmart Gift Card *25 winners*

Let the angels sing.

Ext. Parking Garage - Day
The sound of car doors slamming and revved up engines echo throughout the garage. Headlights circle down through the levels searching for the way out. Quietly, at the exit, she waits.

I'll go ahead and apologize for all the evil glares that it looks like I'm giving throughout these photos. It's not you, I promise, it's me. During the time that I took these I was experiencing a splitting migraine and was doing all I could to just keep my eyes open. TMI,  but, as soon as I was finished I ran inside, puked, and slept for like 10 hours. I know, so cute... 

Aside from what I just mentioned above, I was actually having a pretty great day up until that point. Not to mention, a great hair day. I mean hellllloooooo I got like six inches in that bouffant bishhhh. As for my body, it was happily wrapped in this new dress from The White Pepper, which is a brand I've been a fan of for a LoOoOoOoOnG time now. (Exhibit A) I knew when they said they were sending me some new pieces that I would not be disappointed. Actually, I was so excited I had to take a short dance break to be able to resume life as normal. Fast forward a week or so and I'm looking at reflection in the mirror wearing this dress and thinking "well, they've done it again." If you haven't already checked out their new winter collection, I highly recommend popping over to their site for a minute and scrolling through. Probs gonna find yourself another Cyber Monday buy. 

Speaking of, I finally ordered a new lens today after dropping my 50 mm and then drowning it in tears and apologies. It's been a pretty good sport about me shoving it back together and pretending nothing happened, but there's no denying that it's focus has been really out of whack. Soon, we should be back to high quality y'all. Get excited. Or at least pretend.

Ext. Lacma - Day
Two kids weave in and out between the lamp posts laughing as one almost catches up to the other. Turning her attention to the other side of the exhibit she begins to move down the row glancing between each opening only to stop suddenly as she sees him.

Heads up, I'm about to start talking about my trip to Los Angeles again. I know this is an ongoing thing, but just bare with me. I had fun and I want to talk about it ok?! Before going to LA my friend Clare (a native of the sunny city) asked Monica and I to start filling a Google doc full of things that we wanted to do the weekend we were there. The end result was something along the lines of tacos, Hollywood, and more tacos. In our defense we really didn't know what all we should do there, and thought we were safe leaving a lot of the planning in her hands. Turns out, we were right. Clare was awesome in coming up with cool things to do including visiting Lacma and its extensive collection of vintage lamp posts, which is obviously right down my...alley. Whew! Jokes! Anyway, I was in love with it immediately and had to remind myself several times that I'm a grown adult and do not need to try the Singing in the Rain pose on every one. I also saw pictures of Kim Kardashian standing there, so its practically holy ground. LOLZ. One last shout out to Clare for snapping these pics of me, I can only imagine how uncomfortable the tripod ordeal would've been there in that crowd of tourists. And shout out to Asos for making this unitard which is so cute and comfortable it must be woven with unicorn hair and sent to their site straight from the heavens. Think of it as yoga pants for your entire body, but stylish AF. In hindsight, it would've made the ideal outfit for today as well since I am about to stuff my face with turkey and dressing. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone celebrating, and happy Thursday to anyone not :)
