I have started to become braver in my fashion choices. These are earrings that a year ago I would have never worn. I was at the mall picking something up and walked past these. They instantly made me think of my older sister Kira. These are something she would wear. I thought they were great and thought, I could pull those off if I wanted to. So got them. Isn't it funny how something like a pair of earrings can make you think of someone?
I was super bummed when I had to sell my Snap Conference ticket. I just ended up having SO much going on that weekend. Thankfully though Queen Bee Market was at the conference and let it open to the public. I was able to go with my friend Jenna and we had a blast running into bloggers and friends. We met the sweetest lady named Ali from Sage & Harper - seriously the cutest girl you ever met. She hooked us up with some of her adorable leather bracelets!
Aveda held a Trashion Show last month in support of Earth month, and let me tell you, it was a pretty spectacular show! The students were able to participate and not being biased or anything, but they were THE best! This dress was my favorite, you can't see all the detail but the corset top was made from bottle caps and the entire dresses bottom is made up of folded magazines. It was gorgeous. Some of my favorite girls from the school put this one together, so proud of them :)
Sometimes you just need a cupcake. And when that cupcake has pistachio in it, you HAVE to have it.
I have always loved nose piercings. All I wanted when I was 18 was an adorable little diamond on my nose. I put a fake one on once and everyone loved it, even my parents admitted it looked "cute" on me, which was a total shocker seeing that they would keel over if I had done anything like that. But I believe we need to treat our bodies like a temple, and not deface them if we can help it :) But that didn't stop me from joining in on the fun at work when we started making fake nose rings from staples. I would have never thought that I would like a hoop nose piercing, but I would totally rock this :) It was fun for the day. Oh and just a testament to how clueless boys can be, Trevor didn't even notice the whole night I had it on... *shakes head*
Speaking of crazy things that go on at work, last week they made me do THIS. They tinted my eyebrows. Let me give you the background. If you read the blog you know my whole life people have told me I have no eyebrows and they are always wanting to draw them in or dye them. Well that only got worse once I started working at a beauty school. Every week someone would ask me if they could just do my eyebrows. Finally I had a weak moment and caved into the pressure. FINE do what you want with them. Well, that isn't totally true, if they could have done what they wanted I would have black eyebrows right now. I told them they had to be LIGHT. To be honest I think they are super dark but no one else does. It is strange seeing eyebrows on my face. I am noticing the most random things now, like how much they move! Who knew I had so much expression?! They are growing on me. We shall see...
After my segment on the Daily Dish last week I figured I would take advantage of the fact that I was in Salt Lake City where my adorable brother Alex lives. Trevor had come up with me since he is in between school and his summer associate position, so we had lunch with Alex and his even more adorable girlfriend Wendy. Oh have I mentioned that I am obsessed with Wendy? I think she is a bunch of perfection wrapped up into this tiny adorable girl :) I am usually pretty judgmental of who Alex dates, I am a bit protective of him. But Wendy passes my test with flying colors. I think we will keep her around.
