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 recently had the privilege to attend an event hosted by Sprint & Boost Mobile and they were showing us their new goodies and deals running for the holidays! It was so fun to play with new products and I even got some great gift ideas for some people in my life. Everyone has someone on their list that LOVES the tech stuff, right? Rob is ALWAYS excited to get new gear and gadgets- whether it’s a new TV, new speakers, an iPad, etc.
Maybe your Dad needs a new cell phone (anyone’s Dad still living in the stone ages with an outdated phone?? My Dad doesn’t even HAVE a cell phone… Yup). Or maybe you’re looking to get your kids a new tablet but aren’t looking to break the bank, or maybe you want to get your Mom a new Apple Watch! All are great ideas and would definitely bring a smile on Christmas morning.
The event also inspired me to put together a little gift guide for you (including some non-phone /tablet specific tech items that I think you might like) in case you’re looking for some inspiration too!
And bonus- with the payment plans and deals that Sprint & Boost are offering this season, there are super affordable ways to add some electronics under your tree.
Happy Shopping! XO
