FBFF: Hair Care

Today's Fashion Beauty Friend Friday is all about hair care!! If you are interested in paraticipating in this networking community please contact Katy of Modly Chic.

1. How often do you get your hair cut?

I pretty much get my hair cut every 6 or 7 weeks and by cut I mean baby trim!

2. Do you go to the same stylist each time, try someone new, go to the cheap hair cutting chains or live it up in a salon?

I am one of those girls that lives it up in the salon, Salon Visage to be exact, and I have been going to the same stylish for about a year and a half now. I don't do much to my hair but I like the experience of relaxing somewhere nice and getting pampered.

3. Do you color your hair? How often? What's your natural color?

I currently have highlights in my hair but I have never colored all of it. My natural color just a draker brown than what it is now.

4. The one thing you always do to keep your hair looking great is:

I normally don't use tons of products on my hair so I will have to say my flat iron because I use it at least twice a week if not more.

5. What hair trend do you love and wish you could rock?


I am loving the feather trend right now and SO wish I could put some in my hair but since I work in a business environment, I am undecided. Maybe one day!

Gray Skies, Gray Outfit

Nothing like wearing a new dress and heels to put a pep in your step! I love that feeling of putting on a brand new item of clothing (or shoes) that has never been worn and already the wheels in your head are turning of all the different things you can wear it with in your closet to make brand new outfits.

I bought these Payless booties forever ago and today is the first time I have actually had them on my feet. They are very comfy for the heel height and the color should go with about anything so I have a feeling I will be rocking them all summer.

Jump Start!

I didn't post yesterday because I was having one of those days when I was focused on the negative...I feel fat, my hair needs trimmed and looks flat, etc. I finally decided to stop feeling sorry for myself around 5 o'clock and instead of just complaining all the time-actually DO something about it.


I joined Weight Watchers! To celebrate my weight loss goals along the way I have decided to host a giveaway for every 10 pounds that I lose. I am feeling much more positive today knowing that I am on the way to getting healthy. Wish me luck!

Wedding Attire...

One of my good friends got married on Saturday in her hometown so the husband and I traveled to Virginia to watch her tie the knot. The wedding was outside so I knew right away I didn't want any form fitting clothing on because it was supposed to be 81 degrees that day. I settled on a bright blue BCBG dress and yellow wedges to complete my look. The weather was absolutely beautiful and it was a perfect day.

Congrats to Erin and Rusty-I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!!

Too Cool For School...Err, Work!

I WISH I was still in school and could just roll right outta the bed and walk to class but alas those days are long gone for me. Now I actually have to get up (shower) and get ready but today I just felt like wearing something fun.


Why-hello new sunnies!!!!

How to Wear Brights to the Office

I love the color blocking trend this season and would love to incorporate some crazy color pairings every.single.day but unfortunately I work in a business atmosphere and cannot walk into work looking like a rainbow and expect people to take me seriously. Today I met bright colors in the middle and created a business casual look that combine's my trendy side with my work side.

I started off with my coral tank top and grabbed pieces that were in the same color family like my hot pink cardigan and orange heels. I wanted to add an extra dose of color but didn't want to overwhelm the overall outfit so I thought my yellow skinny belt was the perfect accessory.

Hot Pink and Olive Green

On Monday I wore an outfit with pink and green colors and today I surprised myself and reached for another variation of the same colors, how bout that!

I pinned this necklace as one of my favorite statement necklaces and then I talked myself into buying it and it arrived in the mail last week. I have an obsession with teal jewelry and this necklace was no exception. I think it is so unique and different from anything I have seen so it was a welcome addition to my closet.

Pink and Green

So this outfit is a (very) weak attempt at color blocking! After looking back at my outfits from the last couple of weeks, it is clear that I need to bring more color into my wardrobe. I have been leaning towards more of a nude palette with sprinkles of black thrown in and that is just no way to dress during the springtime.


Be on the lookout this week as I try to break out of my shell and incorporate more bold COLORS into my life!!
