Odds and Ends

April 5, 2013

1. I recently sipped (guzzled) my first Paloma cocktail, and it was just about the most delicious drink in the whole entire world. So happy I found this recipe (and beautiful photos!) on Drizzle and Dip. It’s going to be my summer drink. (Yes, I’m already planning things like that.) 2. Sorry I’ve been a […]

If Pantene Ruled The World…

March 25, 2013

If Pantene ruled the world, it would be a place “where women would always shine, smile, feel and look their best.” Well, in the meantime, while planning for total world domination, Pantene has come up with its own set of fun, upbeat “rules” on the Pantene Facebook page. (Which, quick aside here, but have you […]

Odds and Ends

March 8, 2013

1. Eddie Redmayne, your freckles are beyond. 2. There are many things I love about Creature Comforts, but the Color Inspiration posts are the best. 3. I am feeling this curly, chin-length bob. 4. I must say, I’ve become relatively proficient in reading and breaking down food labels, and this post by A Dinner and […]

Odds and Ends (+ House Update)

March 1, 2013

1. Let’s talk about the house, guys. I realize I kind of left you all hanging with all the updates and then….nothing. Well, we’ve been working hard to finish the space, and we are getting really close. (Although, come on, you are never really “finished,” but that’s the fun and/or frustration of it all.) D […]

Some Hair and Beauty Fodder…

February 14, 2013

1. I’m always trying to figure out how to create a smoky eye that is more subtle/demure, less vampire/whorehouse. Love the above look, and all the products used are listed in this Glamour article. (And speaking of vampires, that actress is dating Peter Facinelli, aka Carlisle Cullen, who used to be married to Kelly from […]

Short Hair Inspiration and Thoughts

January 31, 2013

I’m still stewing over the big chop, which really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone since I don’t possess even a sliver of the “oh what the hell, just do it” gene in my body. Nope, I approach my hair decisions exactly like I approach every decision in my life — very methodically, looking at […]

January 24, 2013

You can use all the bobby pins you want, but if you want your updo to truly last all day, it’s what you do to your hair BEFORE you put it up that matters. Check out my tried and true tips at Style United.

The ‘Karlie’ Chop – Haircut of the Year?

January 17, 2013

It seems I’m not the only one feeling shorter hair these days. According to The New York Times, model Karlie Kloss’s new chop is the haircut of the year. Vogue declared it the “cut of the moment” in a four-page feature story in the January issue, saying “the season’s new hair is swingy, sexy — […]

Quick Thoughts on the Golden Globes

January 14, 2013

1. Rachel Weisz, you were Old Hollywood perfection last night. Well, at least from the mid-thigh up. Wasn’t really a fan of the bottom of this dress, but I’m boring, so there you go. 2. Mandy Patinkin, you were robbed. ROBBED, I SAY! You deserved that award, sir. (I also enjoy your beard.) 3. Whoah! […]

Anne Hathaway’s Pixie

January 11, 2013

While we’re on the subject of hair, can I express just how badly I want Anne Hathaway’s pixie cut? I’ve been thinking about this long and hard, and here are my thoughts on the matter. Reasons why I should go for Anne Hathaway’s pixie cut. 1. It is something completely unexpected for me. 2. It […]

Red Carpets are Coming! Red Carpets are Coming!

January 10, 2013

I love red carpet hair, but I hate creating red carpet hair. If you’re looking for some easy ways to fancify your tresses for an upcoming event, look no further than my Lazy Girl’s Guide to Red Carpet Hair. If I can do it, you can do it. Fist bump.

Ebooks I’m Loving Right Now

November 28, 2012

1. From Your Freezer To Your Family: Slow Cooker Freezer Recipes I don’t even know where to begin with this eCookbook because I love it so much. It’s like the perfect trifecta of slow cooker love, organization, and healthy meals. Now, if one of those three descriptors interests you, put this on your list, however, […]

Hello. I’ve Been Writing Lots of Stuff.

November 16, 2012

1. How cute is the above graphic by Style United? I loved that they used my handwriting, even if it’s wayyyyyy less cool than my husband’s. 2. Right on the tail of my bootie obsession (seriously, WHEN ARE THE MADEWELL BOOTS GOING TO GET HERE?) is my hat obsession. Here are 10 of my favorites. […]

Hair Inspiration for Little Girls

October 15, 2012

I’ve posted hundreds of photos of hair inspiration over the years, but I’ve never really done a roundup of hairstyles for the younger set. Now, as you can see above, I’m a huge proponent of the toddler bob. Nothing could be cuter! (I know, I know…I’m a little biased.) Regardless of length, though, little girls’ […]

Step Away From the Spray Bottle, Sir

August 22, 2012

Over the past few years, we’ve rarely strayed from Wito’s signature hairstyle. You’ve seen it before…the swoopy, longer bangs in the front…short, but not too short in the back… It just suits him. Not that the haircut doesn’t have its drawbacks, though. It can get a little hot and sweaty all up in there, and […]

Sideswept Bangs: Control Your Cowlicks!

August 21, 2012

The past 6 years of my follicular existence have always included some sort of bang situation on my forehead. Short, long, blunt, sideswept…you name it, I’ve done it. It seems I’ve settled on a sideswept look – mainly because they are so much easier to style (and grow out) than heavy, blunt bangs, but also […]

So Smitten With This Hair

July 16, 2012

Yet another Pinterest gem, I came across a photo of the most lovely, sun-kissed hair color a few weeks ago. I clicked through to Box No. 216  and found an absolute mecca of gorgeous hair. (Seriously, I don’t even want to tell you how much time I’ve spent on the website.) Turns out Box No. […]
