Say hello to my friend the French Braid.
My hair is at that point where my bangs are so long that my left eye has seemingly disappeared and I obviously need a haircut, but for some reason I'm just too lazy to pick up the phone to try and schedule a hair appointment. This is the point in time where bobby pins become my best friend, I constantly try to recreate the Carrie bun, and I throw some gel in my hair and let my natural curl do its thing. But today I really wanted my strands out of my face so in comes the French braid. That being said, you only get one full picture of me with my Frenchie, because I was reminded that I hate how I photograph with a French braid in! Le sigh.
So what's your go-to hairstyle on lazy days? Or if you're like me and put off haircuts for wayyy too long?

P.S. I bet I could have made 5 hair appointments in the time it took me to write this blog post. Oh well, maybe I'll call tomorrow. 
I think these are the tallest pair of shoes in my closet, life is different when you're standing 5'8" instead of 5'2"
I am obsessed with this bronze-y Milani Nail polish!

50 Shades of Red

Amidst all of the '50 Shades of Grey' hype, I was somehow inspired to try and wear 50 shades of red (because grey just didn't sound as appealing). It turns out that I don't actually have all that much red in my wardrobe. So I think I only got to 7, but hey it was a fun challenge for myself :-) 

Next challenge: Read 50 Shades of Grey. I've stayed off the bandwagon up until now since it's not the kind of book I'd usually read, but my it arrived on my iPad for free and I'm planning to take the jump tonight. Christan Grey, here I come.
