April 2013 Wishlist

After giving shopping for lent, I definitely have a shopping itch that I cannot wait to scratch! While finding the cutest sundress, the zara bag, and really anything from Dimepiece LA are at the top of my list, here are a few of the things I will be on the quest to find next month after Easter.

I also really really really want this Dimepiece Bralette top! This just might be my first purchase.

I swear I am completely and utterly obsessed with sunsets and sunrises. Unfortunately, I am normally only awake for one of the two. There is something hella beautiful about the way the different colors combine as the sun goes down and the fact that the color combination is never the same. 
I really appreciate this view every single day.

How-To/DIY: Big, Curly Hair!

I tend to get a lot more compliments on my hair when I wear it curly. People want to know where I got my hair, did I buy it that way, and how do I get it to stay that way.  So, I decided to do a post about how to curl your hair and most importantly, getting that curl to hold! My secret?! 
PIN CURLS!
Right now I have Virgin Indian hair in but this method works with almost every kind of hair.

I’m gonna show you how I went from this:

to this:
and my final look of the night:

What You Will Need:
ONE hair brush
ONE hair wand or curling iron
ONE bottle of hair lotion/light holding spray/light mousse
(I use something called “Curl Activator” made by “Twisted Sista”)
LOTS of bobby pins
Step 1: Brush you hair out thoroughly.
Step 2: Take a section of your hair to curl.  Use dime sized amount of your hair product and apply to that section of the hair. 
Step 3: Take some hair from that section to curl and wrap around wand or curling iron.

Step 4 (THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART): Take the curled hair and use a bobby pin to follow the curl pattern and pin to your head.

Step 5: Repeat steps 2-4!

 The end result should look something like this:

Step 6: Wrap hair in silk scarf and leave for a few hours. (I did mine at night and went to sleep with them in.)
Step 7: Take out bobby pins and…..
VOILA! Big bouncy beautiful curls! 
For more volume and sexiness, simply run your fingers through the curls to tease it a big and get that “big and sexy” look!
I use this method quite often:

It’s so easy and works wonders! Have you ever tried pin curls? How do you normally curl your hair?

Stop and Smell the Roses

I’ve been trying to find time to just chill out and do things that I enjoy and want to perfect. One of those things is photography. I am still an amateur and never taken a class but…..practice makes perfect right? Here are some shots I took at the lake near my house.

What I wore that day:
