Life, New Hair & OOTD

Life, Hair & OOTD Thumb_FotorHey Guys & Dolls!

First things first; I refreshed my roots! I decided to do a little something different from my normal Pink/Purple/Black; The top portion that is normally hot pink is now sort of a pastel pink/purple and I kept a bigger section of blond in the front. Will I keep it this way? I don’t know, but it is fun to mix it up every now and then!

Secondly,for those who read my previous post about making the switch from a Desktop PC to a Macbook Pro: I LOVE IT! I’m still learning imovie, and haven’t decided to buy Final Cut Pro yet. So far I’m really pleased with how fast and intuitive everything is. Editing is a freaking cakewalk compared to Sony Vegas, and while I still have to google “How do I ______ on a MAC” several times a day, it’s getting easier, and I’m only sorry I didn’t do this sooner!

Lastly but not leastly, I talked a bit earlier this month about suffering from S.A.D. I’m happy to report that we’ve has a few sunny, warm days in the bay area. I feel like a terrible braggart even mentioning it while everyone else is suffering from record lows, but I have to say it’s lifted my spirits immensely, along with the newfound freedom of not being chained to a desk.

Since I’m all happy-pants and the weather is nice, Here’s an OOTD for you! I got this dress over a month ago during a sale at Nordstrom (It figures it’s sold out now) but you can still get it though the brand’s website, City Chic. I’m really liking this Australian plus-size line, and this dress/tunic was something that I just HAD TO HAVE! It’s really flattering and comfortable, and damn it if this thing doesn’t scream SPRING! To all my Aussie sisters who are deep into to summer- GET THIS DRESS! To everyone else-I think this would be worth getting now and saving for spring!

    I totally love the hair, but what I really want to know is… WHERE DID YOU GET THE GLASSES?! Those are so so so cute and they just look amazing on you! As an old lady (just turned 30) I just realized that I think I need glasses and those are so gorgeous!

    Oh man, you can’t know how excited I am to see you in City Chic clothing! I work for them in New Zealand and I really don’t see our clothes on American/ European women and it’s sad because they’re beautiful! You look so awesome and the colours truly are stunning on you! Yay! xo

    I really like the blond. Nova Scotia, Canada has gotten some really mild days lately as well so don’t feel bad for us…admittedly it came with rain…but we take what we can get in Halifax. PS. maybe I missed it….but where is the belt from?

    You’re absolutely gorgeous girl! I cannot get over how fast your hair grows!!! I’m loving the blonde!

    Your hair looks SO GOOD like that! I have been watching a long time on YouTube and this is my favorite look you’ve done. Do you bleach then do foils like when highlighting? I do my own foils because I like to add dimension. I guess what I am asking is how do you do that? I have really blonde hair without the dark part at the ends and I want to add a touch of color, too! Love from MO, Heather
