When I first saw this shirt I just knew that I had to get it! I mean C’mon, just look at it! But unfortunately for me when I went to put it in my cart the first time it was sold out. When it came back in stock I jumped at my opportunity to grab it! It is the perfect type of floral that doesn’t even sort of bother we so we will run with that! You can easily dress it up for a night on the town or throw on some jeans and call it good. Which is exactly what I did.

I just super love peplums more than most things in life. Which I maybe shouldn’t admit, but I am going to because this is my blog. Throw on some nice dark jeans, sandals and bracelets and you are good to go! If I am being honest with you I feel like I am slowly drowning with all this humidity that is slowly taking over. Ain’t no thing I guess. I just don’t know how people in the South do it.

 

Help a girl out and give me some ideas of how to handle this weather!

xoxo

When people find out I only wash my hair every 5-6 days they always ask me why. Well it is pretty simple. You shouldn’t be washing your hair everyday. And my hair is naturally super frizzy and curly so when I straighten it I want to make it last for as long as possible! I decided to take a picture of how I keep it looking clean/what I do to make it all work for so long. I plan to do the same thing when I curl my hair because it is very different. But I still last the 5-6 days.

So lets just get into it. I start by letting my hair air dry because I am lazy. But also because it is better to not use heat if you don’t need to. I alway use two different serums after my hair is damp. I will be posting about those later. After my hair is super dry I got to sleep and wait until the next morning. There is nothing worse then straightening your hair when it is wet.

Day 1: Is pretty self explanitory. I just straighten it. When it is straight I am good to go. No product the first day because I want to keep it as clean as possible for as long as possible.

Day 2: I will normally just throw in a Braid so it stays out of my face. If you want a tutorial for this braid just let me know and I will do it for you guys! (that goes for any of the hair styles) I might put a tiny bit of hairspray on my braid but again I try and keep it as clean as possible.

Day 3: This day is when my hair starts to feel a bit gross. so I normally throw in some dry shampoo and section it into a half ponytail. You can see it has a bit more texture, but that is just the shampoo. It is such an easy style to do but it is so cute!

Day 4: I make sure I put in dry shampoo the night before and I will run my straightener through it and just throw on a hat. This is probably one of the easiest days!

Day 5: Depending on the week this can normally be my last day before wash. But this time around I lasted 6. So on day 5 I normally go with a ponytail or a top bun. Either or. With this ponytail I wrapped a piece of hair around it to give it a messier look. Honestly with this one, the messier the better.

Day 6: Because my hair had been up in a ponytail it had a bit of a crimp and some texture so we went with some half up space buns. I added some salt spray for added movement. And called it a day.

And just like that the week is over and it is hair washing day. Now like I said some weeks I wash it more, some I make it the full 6 days. But I really survive because of dry shampoo. I won’t lie about that. And like I said I will be making two more editions of this with curled hair and my natural hair. So look for those soon!

Which style was your favorite?

I am going to be honest with you right off the bat. Almost 98% of the time when I purchase any type of activewear it is not to work out in. Or to do anything even sort of physical. I just want to always be comfortable. But lately I have been trying to be a bit more active. I just want to put an emphasis on a bit. Nothing crazy I swear!

Now I promise I am not going to turn into someone who only shows you my work-out gear and or pictures of my work-outs. I will never be that person. I like lounging around a bit to much. For example: I am typing this while laying in bed watching Disney movies because you know..being sick is the worst.

But these leggings from Fabletics are quite possibly some of the comfiest leggings to work out in. And by workout I really do mean Yoga. I don’t know what I would do without yoga in my life. But back to these leggings. Seriously I am so glad I got a couple of pairs. They work so perfect for what I need them for. And this Cara Loren top just adds that extra cute factor that I need most of the time to get myself to do anything that isn’t taking a nap.

I try and work out as much as my schedule lets me. But if you have any fast workouts that you love just let me know and I will give it a try. Because I have got to get a bit more active. I am in my car WAY too much! So hopefully I can get this whole thing worked out.

Well I did it! I somehow made it through my very first semester of Art school without dying! (Man I sound dramatic) For those of you who are new to my blog you might not know that I go to school in a completely different state. So I drive from Kentucky to Tennessee at least 3 times a week at night. Which also means I am constantly tired! Haha no really. I live in a state of tired.

BUT I DID IT! 1 down 11 more to go. Or I think it is 11. I could be wrong. But either way it is exciting to know that I don’t suck at school as much as I always thought I did. One of my reasons for even starting a blog in the first place was to use it as a bit of a journal for my life. (without oversharing that is)

Fun fact about Art School is sometimes you get to be the model so you have photos to blog, which is a double bonus. Check out David Clancy Photography. He is amazing.

So here is my list of things that I learned from my first semester of Art school:

  1. Always have extra camera batteries/ phone batteries. This speaks for itself
  2. My MacBook is possessed. Honestly it might get its own little post because Apple seriously has been the WORST company to try and work with ever. I mean..at one point they lost my laptop. Only to not fix it. To have it still not work how it should. Even though it is brand new. (I am talking to you Gamble/Juan/Kim/all the other agents I have talked too)
  3. Loud music is a necessity for the drives home. So it water. Always have water.
  4. Always write down your life in a planner/calendar. Organization is the KEY to figuring out this hectic life.
  5. It is okay to not know everything. It however is not okay to not questions because you are scared that you don’t know the answer when it seems everyone else does.
  6. Gas money is always going to kill my bank account. It will be worth it someday.
  7. Sometime in the future I will stop saying you are a photography major and just come out and call myself a photographer.
  8. I will figure out this whole eating thing sometime in the future. Not having dinner on school nights is the worst.
  9. I got to second shoot at The Grand Ole Opry. Whenever I am feeling discouraged. I need to remember  just how freaking cool that night was. Learning everything takes time. But it is moments like that, that make it worth it.
  10. Nossi College of Art is exactly where I was meant to go. My entire life I never knew school could be like this. So thanks Nossi for being one of my favorite places on this whole wide world.

And thats what I’ve got for now folks! I have two weeks off before I start in on school again. So I will be prepping the blog better than I did before semester 1. Promise.

I love you all!

Sometimes you just need a little TLC with some of your people. This weekend was exactly that for me. I didn’t even realize how badly I was needing to step back and spend some time with my people I love. I also had to get some homework done which was not the best thing in the world but finals are important, or so I am told. But most of it was super fun!

My family and I got invited over for an Easter dinner on Saturday night by some of our neighbors. I adore these people so much. Marsha had the whole table decked out that I couldn’t stop myself from whipping out my camera to take a couple of pictures because it was so beautiful.

 

 

 

And dinner was so good! Which was the best kind of a bonus. If dinner wasn’t enough they let us play around on their 4-wheelers. Fun fact: I had never driven one until that night. Tip: If you have tiny hands maybe don’t pick the biggest one to drive. My thumb went so numb! Which if funny to say now but boy did it hurt! Also trying new things is one of my favorite things in the entire world.

 

We even got to dye eggs which was seriously so fun! I didn’t realize how much I missed it last year! Mom even joined in on making the eggs more pretty. Although she will claim that we just made them ugly. She is wrong. We make beautiful eggs. She just won’t say that.

Tell me about your weekend! I wanna know!

I hope you have a killer day
