I cannot believe that the wedding is only 2.5 months away! On Sunday my mom and family friend threw me my wedding shower and I had so much fun! I am not usually a fan of wedding showers but if all showers were like mine I could attend one every singe day! I cannot express how much Howard and I appreciated everyone who attended and we are so thankful for all of our gifts.

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!

On Saturday Howard and I went into the city to go to the field museum and the auto show, even though it was cold we had a fab time! Being there for the day has me very excited for the spring and summer to spend the warm days downtown shopping or just being a tourist!

When I am going in and out of places when it is this cold out I like to wear a lighter jacket because otherwise it is too difficult carrying around. I am over winter and cannot wait for spring, I have been daydreaming of my spring wardrobe. What is keeping you sane on this cold days?

I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Currently Craving: Basics

Currently Craving - Basics

Lately when I am getting ready for the day I stare at my closet and think I have nothing to wear even though it is packed full. I have been wanting to go on a shopping spree but with planning a wedding and saving for a house my budget cannot handle that right now. I am looking for some basic pieces that I can mix and match to wear with multiple outfits and multiple ways. I also love to accessorize so anytime I am looking to add to my closet I try and pick a few new statement pieces to change up my looks. When you are not loving your closet what do you do to mix it up?

I hope you all have a fab Wednesday, Happy Hump Day!

Dirty Hair Days

Fishtail Top Knot How to

 

Step One: Spray your favorite dry shampoo (I love Big Sexy Hair)

Step Two: Tie your hair up in a high ponytail (using a strong ponytail holder)

Step Three: Slide your donut in and make sure to leave a small section out (Need a new Donut?)

Step Four: Wrap your hair around the donut and secure with a PT and bobby pins

Step Five: With the small section of hair left fishtail braid it

Step Six: After you secure the fishtail pull small sections to make the braid thicker (repeat steps until braid it full)

Step Seven: Secure fishtail around pun with bobby pins

End Results! 

 

 

 

 

Top Knot Fishtail Braid

 

I absolutely hate washing my hair because there is so much of it and it takes FOREVER to style, even when I wear it curly. When my hair seems to be getting a little dirty it doesn’t look the best down, so I will usually style it up in a top knot of some form. After I spray some dry shampoo, up it goes. I also love fishtail braids so I wanted to wear the two of them together. I hope my how to steps help you on your dirty hair days.

Have a fabulous Monday!

Can you believe that Valentine’s Day is already next Saturday? I don’t know what your plans are but I always love to dress up if I am going out to dinner with my valentine, my girlfriends, or just celebrating at home. Even though many people believe that Valentine’s Day was made up by the card companies it is another day to show your loved ones how much they mean to you. What are your plans for Valentine’s Day?

I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!

With this nasty weather that we are getting right now, all I can do is daydream for spring to be here. When I was out shopping this weekend so many stores are starting to have spring clothes and accessories out and ready to buy. It was so hard to not buy especially since we just booked our honeymoon so all I am craving is spring and summer clothes! What are you looking forward to buy for your spring wardrobe?

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!
