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 :)

Pity Party


Int. Studio - Day
One arm, then the other, she slips into her most valuable fur. A record spins blasting music into the confetti covered room. With a sigh she falls backwards onto the bed.

Humans! How are you?! I'm back from my trip and already missing it like crazy. For those of you who don't know, a couple of days ago I hopped off a plane at LAX with a dream and my cardigan, and two of my best friends, and we spent a little over a weekend running all over the sunny city, visiting the beach, string up at palm trees, and driving around Hollywood. The atmosphere there truly is identical to the one that is portrayed in the movies. Ultra cool and laid back, dirty, but unmistakably glamorous. I already can't wait until I can go back. 

While I was gone, Abby, from Lace and Lilacs published the winter edition of her online magazine and was kind enough to feature me :) Form more pictures like these and some dialogue to go with just follow this pretty little link.

Goody Clean Radiance


 Int. Vanity - Morning
As the sun rises, so does she. Sleepily, she makes her way to kitchen, turns on the coffee pot, and grabs the paper from outside the door. After scanning the front page she drops it on the table and places her self in front of the vanity. With ease she powders her face and paints her lips reminding herself that she is nearly out of her favorite red. Turning her attention to her hair she grasps her Goody Clean Radiance brush and begins to tame the tangly mess into a clean set of wavy curls as the sound of a firetruck passes by on the street below.

If you were ever curious about my morning routine, take the above story as a little insight, minus all the snooze button repeating and shaking an empty box of Lucky Charm's hoping there's at least enough left for one more bowl type of issues that I often run into. However, the makeup and hair section of that is spot on as every morning I find myself staring into the mirror and putting my face on one fluffy brush at a time. As for my hair, it varies day to day how I like it done. From curls to bouffants to its natural pin straight, depending on my mood which means there is also the occasional messy bun, I do it all. Scroll through the archives of my blog and you'll notice that this short little hair style I've got going on is actually quite new. For most of my life I've kept my hair rather long, at one point it nearly touched my hips, which in hindsight was probably a little too long considering I do not have the hair of a Disney princess. For years, I wouldn't let the hair stylist cut off much more than an inch at each visit so I could hold onto my length as much as I could. I felt so feminine with it, I wasn't sure how I would feel, or as silly as it might sound who exactly I would feel like without it. Time passed though as it always does and I started to wonder what I might look like with short hair. I have to give Taylor Swift a lot of credit for sparking my interest, as well as Betty Draper. It took some convincing, I wanted to be sure I wasn't abandoning my aesthetic or blindly making a decision I would regret as soon as the scissors took their first snip. Isn't it strange us humans can be so afraid to change something that will easily grow back? Like cutting it would be crossing into some point of no return or something. After many pep talks with myself and some encouragement from my friends, I decided it needed to be done. How could I ever make big changes in my life if I was unable to find the courage to simply cut my hair? With this thought in mind, I had it chopped off, and I haven't looked back yet. In fact, I start getting antsy when I think it is ready for a trim because I don't want it to get "too long". As silly as it may seem having short hair has really helped me to embrace who I want to be, grow my aesthetic, and give me a new confidence I didn't know I had until then. One excuse I used to use for keeping long hair was because you can do so much with it, but I've found that I haven't lost that with short hair like I feared. With my short hair I have explored several different ways of curling it, retro inspired up-dos, and even a better bouffant since it doesn't have as much weight on the ends pulling it down. Through all of these YouTube tutorials and random experimentation, I've kept the Goody Clean Radiance brush as close as possible. Being that it is made with copper bristles it helps to reduce natural build up that your hair produces over time leaving it looking cleaner, healthier, and more radiant. Ya'll know I'm not the type to shampoo everyday or my hair will lose any volume it may have, so the Clean Radiance brush is the best way for me to give my hair that just washed clean shine that I like, while still leaving it strong enough to style. Plus, I know it goes without saying, but the white and copper design is seriously chic and fits so well amongst all of the other items kept on my vanity. If you're wanting to try it for yourself, good news, Goody Clean Radiance is sold at your local Walmart. So, while its good enough to want to travel far for, you don't even have to!
