When it comes to coloring hair I can say I’m one of the many that had a pretty traumatic experience. It was a bleach gone wrong kind of experience…I’m talking about 8 inches of hair falling out in the shower and sudden new found 2-inch bangs kind of trauma. All of a sudden I had 4 layers of stringy blonde hair that will break at a gentle pull. I know it’s kind of dramatic and its just hair but I couldn’t help it. I must have cried for days every time I looked in the mirror.

After many years trying to nurture my hair back to life with every product on the market, I always, always go to a professional, but this weekend I felt impulsive and picked up a hair dye from a local store. A girl just never learn I guess (lol). Even though I love my ombre hair, I just kind of grew tired of it so decided to go dark for winter. Well, luckily no trauma or accident this time (whew) and I love the fresh new darker shade of black with hints of leftover brown.

P.S. I have many asked before what I used to curl my hair: I used Caruso’s steam rollers which is amazing because it’s less damaging and is the best tool I’ve used for  long-lasting curls. :)

Maxi skirts are not only one of the most comfortable, flattering and favorite item in my closet, they are also so versatile! During the summer I love pairing them with tanks and crop tops. During the fall, I’ll style them with sweaters or jacket & scarf. What I  really love about this particular maxi is, well other then the color is perfect for transitioning into fall, the leather waist trim & thigh high slit just gives it an extra something something.

I’m all about midi skirts lately. They are so sweet, elegant and can be styled in so many different ways. I made this in three of my favorite colors (blue, green and fuchsia) but this color and styling is probably my favorite of the bunch, a close tie to the blue and the green I think…I just can’t decide!! Which color is your favorite?
