Ombre Round 2

Greetings, bloggers!

I recently got my hair done again at a different salon, and I am so happy with it!

I got a great recommendation to go to Number 9 Salon in St. Pete. The stylist there most definitely knew her stuff. I finally got the ombre highlights I wanted.

They are natural looking, with just the right amount of blonde. I’ve found my new salon and stylist!

I have been pinning more than blogging as of late, in case you were wondering where I have been. Yes, I have become a Pinterest addict. It got me. Seems to get everyone eventually.

Something that I have been obsessed with recently is hot new nail colors for summer. My favorites right now are Tart Deco and A Crewed Interest by Essie.

I wore these two colors to a wedding, where my boyfriend was a groomsman. It was a beautiful ceremony with black, ivory and purple colors.

[Only mobile phone quality photos were taken, sorry!]

I can’t really come up with a name for the color of my dress – almost a burnt orange/coral color? (Hard to tell with this picture too.) I wore gold accessories and nude colored sandals. I figured I should have somewhat of a tan to rock the gold accents. In my attempt for a bronzed look, I used Jergens Natural Glow & Protect, which smelled pretty good and actually worked really well!
I like the fact that it has SPF in it too. Has anyone else tried a gradual tanner that they loved? Or hated? What are your favorite color trends for summer? Let me know your thoughts!

Femme-Punk Polish

While I consider myself to be sunglass savvy, I am also a total product junkie. Be it makeup, hair product, skin care, or polish – I collect it. The fact that Sephora employees know me by name will prove it.

A trip to Walgreens is also tempting as well. After picking up my latest issue of Elle, I also nabbed some nail polish. I was looking for some softer colors and ended up picking out some feminine Essie colors. I had also been on the hunt for the new OPI “Shatter”, but it had been sold out wherever I looked.

I found Sally Hansen’s Crackle in “Ink Splatter” instead. It was around $6 and seems to work just as well. It also comes in several colors including hot pink, silver, etc.

Normally one would pair the black with some neon colors, but I wanted to try a femme/punk mix. I used Essie’s “French Affair” on my fingers, and “Lilacism” on my toes, sans Crackle.
