Birthday Vibes

 Frank Jerky and I got together and shot two videos in a day.  It was the first time we were working together and the first time I did any video content.  We had a lot of fun and I look forward to doing more! What do you think about video vs photo content?

Anyway it also happens to be my birthday and to be honest there isn't much for me to ask for.  I've got amazing friends and family that I'm very thankful for, and can only hope to improve myself with another year of great experiences in the books.  Thanks to all who have been a part, big or small! 

Looking forward to the next. 


Thanks to Cutler Salon for giving me a Redken HeatCure treatment- if you have colored (especially highlighted!) or damaged hair, this treatment is amazing.  Hair felt like it was transformed to silk, a contrast from its almost straw-like state after all the bleaching!!   I linked above so you can read about it if you're curious.

Season's Trends: Current Favorites

Tunic Dress - Tobi 
Chunky Cardigan - Zara
Hat - Asos
Boots - Zara

Two of my favorite trends of the moment are oversize, and over-the-knee.  I guess you could say more is more right now when it comes to shapes and silhouettes! Who doesn't love the idea of a big, snuggly oversized cardigan to wrap yourself up in, through this cold, cold winter? 
Over-the-knee is really a trend that's currently widespread more in the form of the boots you're seeing everywhere, so I figured I'd put a little variation and do it with socks.  Knit ones, so nearly as warm as wearing the boots.  

I wore my cardigan over a simple tunic dress from Tobi, which I got recently (a steal at $16 right now!) and am loving because it's one of those basics that will go with everything.  I can throw it on by itself when I have nothing to wear and am rushing out the door, or I can use it as the foundation of an outfit and style it various ways.  It was the perfect pairing to my cardigan because it's a thinner, t-shirt like material (read: comfy!), and balances out the chunkiness of the knit.  I love chunky but don't want to come out looking like a marshmallow.

Trends that are functional are the best, especially when it comes to keeping warm in the winter. (And something I probably should focus on even more, since I just got over the flu.  It was pretty unpleasant.) 
What are your favorite trends of the moment?
