..Free Blowouts & a Bubbles Grand Opening!


Girls. Let's get serious for a second. Who doesn't feel their absolute best after a fresh blowout? When your mane is in check the rest of your body just seems to follow suit, am I right? What if I told you that you could get hooked up with one for FREE and on a FRIDAY no less (a.k.a the BEST day to get one so you can stay fresh and fly all weekend)? Well you can! Bubbles Salon at Pentagon Row in Arlington (previously Colorworks) is giving them away for their grand opening on October 24th! Schedule one and come hang out with me this Friday. If you can't make it then, go ahead and get your appointment scheduled anyway as those freebie blowouts are redeemable until Halloween!

When: Friday, October 24th, 2014
Where: 1101 South Joyce St. Arlington, VA 22202
Appointments: 703-416-1102

Also - be sure to RSVP to the event here.

..Fancy Faux Fur

The deets: J.Crew chambray; Baublebar necklace; BCBGeneration booties; AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans; Allen Schwartz faux fur vest (old, but here is a great selection of fur vests); Steve Madden bag.

Sometimes when it's finally Saturday and you have plans to go out with some friends you just gotta let your inner rockstar come out. It's nice to ditch the pencil skirt and really glam it up once and a while, which is exactly what I did for a night of drinks, dancing, and a really great live music at a local watering hole.

..Cozy Sweater Four Ways

..Cozy Sweater Four Ways
As the temps begin to drop, I start going into straight cold-prep beast mode. One item everyone needs in their arsenal is a neutral colored cozy knit sweater. Of course you can pick one up basically anywhere this time of year but I am a girl that likes to take traditional things and put a spin on them. For this reason, I am really digging Shopbop's selection of chunky knits with a twist. Here are four ways to make this basic piece seem fresh.

4. Trendy: JOA Cropped Sweater

..Four Favorites: Fall Sweets


I figured it's officially the season of pumpkin spice, (seriously they should change the name from "Autumn" to "PUMPKIN EXPLOSION IN YOUR FACE"), so why not share four of my favorite fall recipes that I can attest are delicious and feasible. 

1. Apple Pie Crumble, WHAT! So good. Turned this non apple pie-loving girl into a true American.

2. Three Ingredient Pumpkin Chip Cookies. So easy your girlfriend that uses her oven for sweater storage could do it (how I miss SATC, sigh).

3. Pumpkin Chip Bundt Cake. Be an office hero and make this cake. It's one of those weird things (like really, a bundt?) that actually tastes like heaven.

4. Fall Foliage Cupcakes. AKA pumpkin cinnamon cream cheese cupcakes, but still, yum.

..Neutral with a Pop

The deets: Old Navy top; ALDO shoes (similar) Francesca's necklace (this one is pretty); Elizabeth and James sunnies (25% off with code FAMILY25); J.Crew skirt.

1. Like I have been saying, Old Navy has been killing it recently. Just another top that I grabbed, this one is now less than $10!

2. If you were ever going to splurge on these cute E+J cat eye sunnies (or any designer sunnies for that matter), now is your chance! Shopbop has them on sale for 25% off! I don't normally shop there, it's a little out of my everyday shopping budget, but it's wonderful during the sales for investment pieces you can wear all the time.

3. I have said it before and I'll say it again, if I had a signature style it would be this: mostly neutral with a pop of color. It just feels like me.
