Mother's Day at Loeffler Randall


Hope you had a great time celebrating with the Mother's Day with the special women in your life yesterday! I wanted to share a Mother's Day Q&A my mom and I did over on Loeffler Randall's blog. I am obsessed with all things Loeffler Randall lately! My Rider bag has drawn a lot of compliments when I am out biking, I've even had some guys ask me where they can get one...haha!

This August 2008 editorial from Vogue Paris is one of my all-time favorites. The editorial was called Reality Show and showed high fashion and dressed-down versions of each of these looks. I preferred the street style looks! Such a timeless editorial. Photos from I Want To Be an Alt.

A lucky day for me: the new gold cuff bracelets I've anxiously been waiting for arrived in the mail on the same day that I got the last box of ice cream bars at Kroger. I ate three Magnum Golds in under an hour, that is half the box! I'm glad all they had left was the mini sizes!


If you didn't get to check out the 24k gold dress Zac Posen designed for the Magnum gold film, you should! It was inspired by the look of melting ice cream.

This post is in collaboration with Magnum, hope you enjoyed!

Sea of Shoes: A Pretty Day to Walk a Poodle

The last picture makes me laugh so much. My mom's maltipoo Shelly had just gotten groomed and this time her haircut was a little more souped up than usual. Shelly was quite taken with her new look so my mom and I took her to lunch so she could show off. She behaved like a perfect lady! Which was a little shocking, to be honest. Shel is kind of a wild woman.

Sunday Bike Ride

So I finally get to show off my bike! Sunday was a perfect day to ride into town for brunch. I forced myself to master the biking in heels thing on this very day. It's not as difficult as I imagined.

Hello Gorgeous

Senso Shoes!
Now that is a nice shoe! I was pondering them for a while but then I saw the sizes flying out of stock. Had to get mine before I missed my chance. I can't say no to a lucite heel, plus white strappy sandals are perfect for summer. You can get them here, or here! They come in black as well.

Sexy Bedhead: the Ultimate Toolkit

How to get the perfect bedhead hairThe perfectly rumpled undone hair that you see on Kate Moss in almost every editorial is supposed to look the opposite of deliberate, and maybe it is for her. She is Kate Moss after all. In my experience, it takes a little cheating. My just-woke-up hair says something more like 'raised by wolves' and less like 'this is my three day old triple digit blowout'.

With a little help from some products, I can sort it out. I've been doing this look a lot lately and had some requests on a tutorial on Instagram. So, here are a few suggestions that I love to achieve that big sexy bedhead look!

How to get the perfect bedhead hair

How to get the perfect bedhead hair

1. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray If you have the cash to spare, this is the ticket to perfectly gorgeous messy undone hair every time. It builds crazy texture and insane volume. A little goes a long way, I spray at the roots and a little through the length of my hair. I bought my first can a month ago and went ahead and ordered two back-up cans because I would be lost without this.

2. Batiste Dry Shampoo Second day hair is the best hair. Even if you're on your first day and need to cheat, this will get you there. It won't break the bank and gives instant volume and texture!

3. Kevin Murphy Full Again Thickening Lotion Big hair is better hair, and this stuff will make your ponytail FAT. The formula contains rayon particles that attach to the hair shaft to thicken it. It's a miracle product for me, I use a dime sized amount and roughly blow-dry it through my hair for half a minute and then air-dry the rest of the way.

4. Spornette Big Wonder Back combing is the secret to Bardot height. The Big Wonder is a large teasing comb designed just for this. It's cheap, too. Back comb at the crown and a bit at the ends for big hair that is a little messy.

5. Elnett Hair Spray I go a few days between washes, and usually when I am heading out the door I spritz a little Elnett on to hold the shape. After a day or so it really helps the hair memorize shape and gives that good 'dirty' texture.

6. Jumbo Rollers (hot, steam, or velcro) You don't want a 'curl' with this style, just bend and volume. Pop a few jumbo rollers in at your crown, directed away from your face. I do a few random ones on the side as well. If you don't use them, try them, you'll be addicted. It is definitely all about the rollers.

7. Sachajuan Ocean Mist This is by far the best sea spray out there. I mist some on for texture and then mess up my hair with my hands. It's great for prepping hair for a texturized updo as well.

8. Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo My favorite dry shampoo. Not only does it prolong your style, but it gives it a lived-in feel and look too. The lemony scent is nice too.

9. Kevin Murphy Powder Puff I love to shake a little of this in at the roots when I want enormous hair. The texture is a little funny. It is activated when you manipulate the hair with your fingers. So shake, muss, and presto, you have big hair.
