Coloring your hair is all the rage now. Bright colored hair is not just for punk rockers or circus clowns; instead women of all ages are experimenting with new color dyes for their hair. The bright colored hair trend is especially popular among celebrities, like Kylie Jenner, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Nicole Richie. Celebs are embracing beautiful shades of pink, blue, and purple. These beautiful hues are soft and fun and can make anyone look like a mythical unicorn or a mermaid. Who wouldn’t want to look like a mermaid, especially for the summer months? Color looks great with every skin tone and hair type. Anyone can pull off bright colored hair. The trend is all about being confident and not afraid to flaunt some color. After reading more about this trend, I noticed that blondes tend to rock more pink and lilac shades, where as brunettes favor blue and turquoise. If you’re ready to say yes to color, I recommend starting off modestly and dying a few strands of hair. The peekaboo streak of color is perfect for those who want to be trendy but have the option to hide the color for those days you aren’t feeling…

Last week was a crazy week to say the least. I finished my sophomore year of college, packed up my college dorm room, moved back home for the summer, and left my teenage years behind. I celebrated my 20th birthday on Sunday, May 10th. Sunday was a day of celebration because it was not only my birthday but it was also Mother’s Day. Shout out to my beautiful, amazing, and inspiring mom. I was so happy to share my special day with my mom.          I can’t believe I’m no longer a teenager. It’s so weird to be in my 20’s now. It feels like just yesterday I was the little girl with the “mushroom” hair cut. Now it is time to embrace adulthood.          Since my birthday fell on a Sunday, I had a weekend full of celebration surrounded by my family and friends. On Saturday, my older sister, her boyfriend, and my two best friends from college, Jennie and Christina (thank gosh they live close to me, so we can see each other a lot during the summer) took me to my favorite Chinese restaurant for dinner and then we went bowling. The bowling alley was so much…

It wasn’t until rooming with Liv this past year that I began to gain more interest in the world of makeup. Whether getting ready in the morning for class or getting ready to go out on a Friday night, I am always calling Liv over for her beauty and fashion advice. Living with a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle blogger can be summed up in two words: personal stylist. I could not be more grateful for all of the makeup and fashion assistance Liv provides me with. It was an honor getting the chance to attend The Makeup Show in New York City this past weekend with Liv. With makeup artists and beauty experts crowding the aisles, this show was unlike anything I could have imagined. It was truly an experience I will never forget. Beauty experts from various companies were not only welcoming, but also extremely helpful when answering all of my amateur questions. From eye shadows to fake lashes, there was something to cater to anyone’s beauty needs. At first I took in my surroundings, and eventually I felt like somewhat of a pro as I swatched eyeliners and shadows on my hand. This was the first time I…

On Sunday, May 3rd, I was able to take a much-needed break from studying for finals and took a trip to New York City. Most of my adventures to NYC are special, but this trip was extra special because I was attending my first ever The Makeup Show with my best friend, Christina, by my side. Coffee in hand, we both boarded the train at 9 A.M. and arrived in the city an hour later. The entire train ride, it felt like I had ants in my pants, or in my case my romper. I was so excited not knowing what to expect. Although this was my first time attending The Makeup Show, this was not my first makeup trade show. Many of my readers know that I have been to IMATS (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) three times, so one thing I knew I could count on would be cosmetics galore and meeting countless cosmetic lovers at The Makeup Show. We really lucked out with the weather on Sunday. It was a beautiful, sunny day with temperatures in the mid 70s. I took advantage of the warm weather by wearing a romper, wedges, and sunglasses. Rompers are my must-have for…

Where did the time go? It’s hard to believe that I finished my last week of classes of my sophomore year of college. It’s been a good semester, filled with lots of fun and of course hard-work. I want to capture one last stylish outfit for what to wear to class before finals begin this week because then I will be living in leggings and t-shirts. For the most part, I like to look nice for my classes. Although, I am up early for my classes, I still get excited going through my closet and putting together outfits for the day. When I feel stylish, I feel more confident, and more motivated to take on my busy day. On sunny days with temps in the mid 60s, I enjoy wearing a pair of skinny jeans, a short-sleeved shirt, and of course my Converse sneakers. An outfit like this is casual and comfortable for class but not as basic as your typical sweatpants look. I’m a huge fan of Madewell denim, so naturally I have been enjoying these new jeans from their spring collection. I can’t get enough of their skinny jeans they call the painter editors because of their artfully…
