Without a doubt, the question I get asked the most is, “how did you grow your hair so long?”. Actually, most of the time it’s not a question it’s just “WOW, you have so much hair.” So I thought it was about time I put together a blog post on my tips and tricks to growing out and handling this crazy mane on a day to day basis. Ready?

There is something extra cozy about a casual jumpsuit, am I right? Going to the bathroom in a jumpsuit can be a major bitch, but it’s worth it for the right one. I found this cute little number at Marshall’s randomly when Rob and I stopped in to exchange a shirt for him. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular and I just stumbled on it- isn’t it awesome when that happens? And it was $14. Win Win!

Obviously it’s too cold out to wear this bare skin, so I paired it with a cute white tee and it instantly transformed into an outfit more appropriate for February. I love that it’s loose fitting and the tie details on the straps are so cute! It’s made out of cotton, so it basically just feels like wearing pajamas, and honestly, nothing is better than that.

When the weather warms up, I’ll definitely be wearing this without a tee underneath and with some wedges or strappy sandals to make it more dressed up. Or this could be a really cute, easy bikini coverup for the beach!

It’s almost the middle of January (crazyyyy) and that means we have about a month or so more of sweater weather here in LA. Actually, it might not even be that long… I’m hearing we’re about to get a “heat wave” soon. Fingers crossed!

BUT for my friends who don’t live in LA or Miami, there is still a good chunk of winter weather ahead (sorry, but it’s true) which means you can still rock the CUTEST sweaters for a little longer! And even better news? There are so many sales happening on winter gear right now, you can score some really good finds!

So I thought it would be an appropriate time to round up some of my favorite sweaters of the moment! And not your average, boring, or basic sweaters- I’m talking FUN, statement making sweaters. That’s what we all really need. I’ve seen so many adorable options lately, they had to be shared.

Here are my favs:

I was on the fence about writing this post, honestly. I made notes in my phone of what I wanted to include, and then never actually sat down to write it because I kept talking myself out of it. Do people like to read these kinds of blogs? Would people be interested to hear my reflections of 2018 and my goals for 2019? I kept telling myself, probably not. But I woke up this morning at 8:00 and started looking at Instagram (a BAD habit I want to stop doing first thing in the morning… ugh) and I was watching Kathleen Barnes’ IG story and up popped her “Reflecting on 2018” blog post link and I swiped up.

I’ve been hearing about bluelight blocking glasses for a while now, and I’m finally giving them a try! Bluelight blocking glasses are supposed to help fight fatigue, digital eye strain, and to help fight restfulness. Staring at a computer at night can lead to trouble sleeping, according to some studies. I found this report on NyMag.com that kind of disputes these glasses altogether, but I do think they’re helping. Combined with limiting my screen time in general, I think I’ll see a major difference.

I wear reading glasses, normally, but they definitely don’t have the light blocking capabilities that these do. Plus, who doesn’t like a cute new accessory?

I’ve partnered up with Vanlinker and they sent me two pairs from their line- style VL9001 and VL9007.
