    Pinkish.

    This last week has been a crazy busy one because we were planning Asa’s first birthday party (pictures coming tomorrow!) and as a result my husband and I didn’t ever get a chance to grab outfit shots over the weekend. Not that I really dressed up much. I have basically been wearing the same dress all week (thank you, all-day pregnancy sickness and laziness…) But I did make one effort today to up my style game… and it failed miserably. Before I go back to dark brown, I wanted to try one crazy color in my bleached-over hair. I had thought I would do purple, but after Googling a certain…

    My Week on Instagram

    The two biggest things of the week, obviously: I started writing again (and subsequently kept forgetting descriptive words and just marking my place with “WORD” so that I could go back and replace it. Hopefully I remember to actually do that…) and I went blonde. I am shocked by how big of a difference it made to go blonde! So many people didn’t recognize me. Because of the blonde-ness, I also updated my makeup routine. Which you can see in full here. I’m loving the new colors I can get away with now having blonde hair. It’s amazing how changing your hair color can open up  new possibilities that you wouldn’t have…

    How to get away with blue eyeshadow, and some quick hair ideas.

    Being a green/hazel-eyed person with rosy skin, I’m not really the type who is supposed to wear blue eyeshadow. Many times, it makes me look like I’ve got black eyes, and it makes the whites of my eyes look yellow. But I was determined to do a  blue shadow look, and Ashley sweetly emailed me for some advice on her makeup and hair for her prom. Perfect timing! So here we go. 1. Start with a good foundation and blush. Preferably a more peach blush, as it’ll go better with your blue eyeshadow. 2,3: Highlight your brow bone down to the inner corner of your eye with a neutral light…

  • 30 Day Challenges

    Instagram Outfits

      After taking an inventory of my closet (yes, I do that…) I realized that of the 35 (plus… cuz I bought more like… I shouldn’t have…) skirts in my closet, I wear… oh, probably about ten of them in rotation. Given, some of them are not year-round skirts (wool, or very light summery fabric), but for the most part probably 75% of my skirts are skirts I should be able to wear right now. So I decided to do a 30-days-of challenge that I may actually finish! Skirts are to me what jeans are to most people– comfortable, easy to style, flexible, appropriate for most occasions. I’ve had a…

    Because I’m bad at keeping surprises.

    So you know that post I wrote a long time ago asking you all to vote for what color my hair should be? Yes. That one. I finally did something to my hair. And I think I have finally found my favorite haircolor. (Ignore the messy hair. I blame the curtains.) I absolutely love it. I think it makes my skin look better, it makes my eyes stand out, it’s kind of funky, and it’s… just… perfect. Also, that’s the real color of the shirt that I talked about, that usually looks more yellow in my pictures. I was going to wait until tomorrow to s how you all the…
