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…

It’s been five days and I am still on a fashion high from Saturday’s Her Campus Fashion Show.  It was a night filled with awesome style, lots of freebies, great music, loads of pictures, and most importantly empowerment.  As I mentioned in my previous post, all four of the fashion shows featured creative entrepreneur designers, including My Social Canvas, Foray, Ali & Ariel, Frill Clothing, and Bow & Drape.  I loved watching the models strut on the runway, featuring the amazing designs from the four designers.  I was so impressed with the fashion and I was so happy I got the chance to support these designers because I have a feeling they are going to make a statement in the fashion world very soon. Although, the fashion show was the highlight of my New York City trip, it was not the only thing I experienced.  I didn’t get back to campus until around 3 A.M, so that means I must have more to share.  So keep on reading for even more about my experience at Her Campus College Fashion Week in New York City.          I could not have survived this trip without my best friend, Lauren, who herself is a fashionista and the girl…
