Here are 4 quick hair styles that will get you looking fabulous & on your way! 

All of these hair styles can honestly be done in less than 5 minutes, making them perfect for days on the run. I am definitely guilty of hitting the snooze button a few two many times and these quick styles have saved the day too many times to count! When I know its going to be an early morning, I wash my hair at night and curl it before bed. In the morning I am left with lovely loose waves that act as the perfect base for these simple styles!

Since Spring is official here, it is time to bring out the pink pants and fruity treats!

The arrival of Spring has inspired me to come up with fun outfit combinations and I have been dying to try out some tasty new recipes. 

Here are my favorite finds of the week... What are yours?!

1. Try out this fresh & tasty lemon cake to ring in the beginning of Spring
2.  Add bright colors to your daily style to seamlessly transition from Winter to Spring.  This teal and pink combination is perfect!
3.  Looks like its time to bring to those wedges and sandals out of hiding!
4. Nothing screams Spring like a grapefruit cocktail (We can almost pretend its good for us)!

Happy Friday!

Beauty School: Vintage Waves

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

Romantic vintage waves are one of my favorite tricks to pump up the drama in the hair department!

These waves look challenging but are actually amazingly simple.  They give a glamorous vibe to any outfit and will make you look effortlessly glamorous. 

I recently styled these waves for a black tie event, and they were a big hit.  I think there is something refreshing and modern about bringing back vintage looks.

Follow these steps and add a little glamour to your life!

Style Files: Spectacles

Glasses: Warby Parker Crane | Top: F21 | Jeans: Citizens of Humanity | Heels: Ralph Lauren | Bag: Cole Haan

I have been hunting for some new spectacles for a while, but just couldn't commit to the crazy price tags at my optometrist's office, so I was super excited when I discovered Warby Parker. 

I used the at-home try on and sampled 10 different styles before I decided on the Crane in Whiskey Tortoise.  I've had these little babies for a few weeks and I have been pretty impressed with the quality, especially based on the $95 price point! The glasses at Warby Parker are stylish, trendy, inexpensive, and sturdy and they seem to have top notch customer service.  

I dont wear glasses out too often, but this new style is making me reconsider! I don't know about you, but whenever I put on glasses, I instantly feel smarter!

PS.  Warby Parker has no idea who I am, I just enjoyed my new glasses and thought you might as well!

Friday, March 1, 2013

All of my favorite pins this week have a lovely girly vibe!

Maybe it's because Spring is just around the corner or that the cherry blossoms came alive this week, but whatever the reason...I am loving these looks!

1. Try out a super feminine look this weekend with a fabulous skirt and natural waves
2. Bring new life to your home with girly books, glowing candles and fresh flowers
3. Going to a party soon?  This cake is fun, festive & original!
4. Upcycle an old tea tin to display freshly cut roses this spring! 

Happy Friday!
Have an amazing weekend!
