To Cut, or Not to Cut? Short vs Long Hair

Short vs long hair
I’ve had so many people ask me about my haircut – questions like: How did you decide to do it? How did you decide who to go to? Do you miss your hair? Are you glad you did it? (the question I get the most!) So, here are my thoughts on cutting my hair.  First of all, I’d had the same hair for like, literally 10 years. The color fluctuated a bit, but for the most…

Best of the #NSale Makeup | Makeup Artist Carly Campbell

Guys, I’m pretty excited about today’s post!  It was SO fun to prep for, and I learned so much.  I asked my friend and amazing makeup artist Carly Campbell (currently up for NAHA Makeup Artist of the Year) to review her favorite products from Nordstrom.  Some are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and some are just plain classics, so that you know exactly what’s worth stocking up on.  I always say Carly is a product guru…

Sephora | Beauty Class

This past weekend, I was lucky to be invited to attend a class, the first of its kind, at the brand new Sephora store located at the new Pacific City.  The new store is beautiful, the staff was amazing, and I learned so much! First, about the class – “Perfectly Paired Lip & Cheek”.  This class was perfect for me, because I have very limited knowledge on the subject!  I rarely use liner, lipstick, or blush, but…

L’Oréal Professionnel | Ramirez Tran Salon

This week I was lucky to be invited to a special event at a special place – a styling event with L’Oréal Professionnel at Ramirez Tran Salon in Beverly Hills.  The event was in honor of the new partnership between L’Oréal Professionnel and celebrity stylists (and salon owners) Johnny Ramirez and Anh Co Tran.  The salon itself is amazing, and the event was so fun.   I had my hair styled (and actually chopped again!) by Sal Salcedo.  Sal specializes in…

Everday Makeup Bag | Natural Look

For some reason, everything seems to break/fall apart/run out all at the same time in my makeup bag.  This last time, my actual bag that I’d had forever even got a huge hole in it!  My cute little brother got me this new makeup bag for Christmas (with a little help from my Mom) so I decided to do a big reset.  I cleaned everything out and restocked on the things that had run out.…

Favorite Wearables | iFit Vue

I’m totally a numbers/data person – I love seeing results stated clearly in numerical form, because that’s so measurable and tangible.  So needless to say, I’ve become a little obsessed with tracking my steps/sleep/heart rate with the iFit Vue.   Northface Vest | White Long-Sleeved Shirt | Leggings | Shoes | Gold Rings | iFit Vue Aether Sweatshirt | Reign Storm Jogger Sweatpants | New Balance Shoes | iFit Vue There are so many wearables out there these…

Girls’ Night | My Favorite Things

We are finally getting settled in to our new place, so I decided it was time to have a girls’ night.  My brow-genius friend Sarajane offers brow parties (so genius!) where you can actually invite some of your best friends over, and everyone can get their brows done together! THE GIFTS Of course, everyone got their brows done – threaded and spot filling/shaping with Sarajane’s extensions.  Because I love her brow work so much, I…

Eyebrow Extensions | Brows by Sarajane

First of all, let me tell you – I am SO picky about my eyebrows.  If I was only allowed to use one makeup item, it would be my brow powder (I use this with this, everyday!)  I started off with this massive unibrow as a kid, and due to over-waxing in the 90’s and laser hair removal in the 200o’s, my once caterpillar eyebrows were left pretty thin and patchy, and refusing to grow…

Girls’ Night Out | h2blow [blow dry bar]

Whenever I’m in Utah, it’s usually for a short amount of time and Blake and I are running around like crazy trying to work while seeing our friends and family.  My family is also so busy with their own crazy lives, but it means the world to me that they find a way to accommodate me every time!  This last trip, I decided to plan a little girls’ night ahead of time with my sisters to…

Tea With Me

I’m a dork, but when I envision the person I want to be, it somehow always involves sipping tea throughout the day.  I love tea, but I also love the process and atmosphere that comes with it.  I just want to be the kind of girl that offers people tea when they come over, and as a result has long meaningful talks about life with her nearest and dearest.  So basically, if I ever offer…
