Friend Friday: Hair Care

1. How often do you get your hair cut?

Not often enough...heh.
2. Do you go to the same stylist each time, try someone new, go to the
cheap hair cutting chains or live it up in a salon?

I cut it myself, haha. Because it's curly, it's super easy to cut...no worrying about straight lines.

3. Do you color your hair? How often? What’s your natural color?

I've never dyed my hair. Thought about it a couple of times, but never taken the plunge. I'm a natural brunette.

4. The one thing you always do to keep your hair looking great is:

Tons of conditioner. Tons.

5. What hair trend do you love and wish you could rock?

Pixie cut! À la Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Portman...but It would never work on me.

paint your nails blue day

[shirts and jeans: Target; belt: hand-me-down from a friend; shoes: Converse]

Oh my gosh, you guys. The saddest thing happened. So I had these Star Wars temporary tattoos(I kinda have an obsession with temporary tattoos....) but they're really old and when I tried to put one on today, Anakin's head didn't transfer! It was a headless Anakin. The poor little guy...

On a lighter note, today is paint your nails blue day! Always one to celebrate random events, I painted my fingernail blue. They look awesome.

Friend Friday: blog pet peeves

This week's friend friday topic is pet peeves. I really only have one, but it's an important one!
Bad spelling/grammar. I immediatly lose respect for people with spelling or grammar mistakes in their blog posts. Oh, and your and you're are two DIFFERENT words, everybody needs to memorize the difference and use these words properly!

green eye shadow

Got my boyfriend shirt by raiding my brother's closet cuz I don't have a boyfriend or any money to buy a "real menswear-inspired shirt" =p

Also, I'm wearing green eyeshadow. I love it.

breaking free

This van broke down several years ago and has been sitting in our backyard since then. One day I thought to myself, "hey, wouldn't it be cool to use it as a prop in a photoshoot?" So I did. The end.

Today's outfit is inspired by Drew Barrymore! I'm wishing I'd remembered the hat now...but I almost forgot to participate at all today, so I guess I should just be happy about that. =]

Go to two birds to see the other participants.

Ugh, I don't like this picture, but guess what? Imageshack(and Photobucket and Flickr...) wouldn't upload any of the other pictures of this outfit! Only this one...in which I'm tilting my head to a REALLY weird angle and who knows what on earth I'm doing with my arm. Sigh...c'est la vie, right?

Oh man, everybody. When I found these glasses lying around the house, I just couldn't resist wearing them for these photos! They're just some plastic frames without any lenses. They make me think of Indiana's anatomy of a fashion blogger, haha.

Awkward/Awesome Thursday


~Not really hearing/understanding what this guy said and trying to bluff my way through the rest of the conversation and not succeeding.

~My left eye hurting and itching and basically making me miserable all night.

~Hitting a car while trying to park. I'm so embarrassed/annoyed at myself right now. The car's owner was sooo sweet about it though and his car wasn't damaged much.


~Babysitting several adorable kids.

~Girly email exchanges with a friend. ;]

~Rediscovering how adorable Nick Jonas is, thanks to this post...."Won't you fly with me?"...

heehee, yeah....

I only almost killed myself on the swing...it's been a while...

Inspiration Monday: Katie Holmes

[jeans, cardigan and shirts: thrifted; shoes: Converse]

Today is Inspiration Monday over at two birds! I so excited that I actually remembered today, I usually forget to participate.

I love the high-waisted, flared pants Katie Holmes is wearing in the picture. I wish mine were as flared as hers, but I don't own any bellbottoms....yet, haha.
