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!

Hot Pink Lips

Aside from the colors yellow, coral or turquoise something else I have been seeing a lot of this summer is hot pink/fuchsia lipstick.

I found this on InStyle

Emma Stone wears a redder lip above, and then with her hair color change wears a brighter pink. Gwen Stefani and Olivia Munn prove that the pink can be worn on both a blonde or brunette.


I love Sephora brand makeup because it is not as pricey and you still get good quality. The Love Test lipstick looks like a good shade for just $12.

Be bold, try on a new shade for summer! If you’re worried about choosing the right shade, have an associate help you – they are great! I know I hope to make a trip to Sephora soon 🙂

Smooches,

Sunny Summer Solution: Dresses

Dresses are simple. You don’t spend extra time trying to find the right shorts, jeans, tops, etc to match each other. The only thing you have to pair it with are shoes and accessories. It is a great foundation to build upon for an outfit. Living in Florida during the summer, there are days where you just can’t even bear to think about pulling on a pair of skinny jeans. Here are a few dresses I’ve found online that I think are perfect for summer.


A great everyday dress – Forever 21 $27.80

The mustard yellow color is definitely IN this summer! I’ve been seeing it everywhere. Forever 21 $13.50

Sweet Summer: Lolli Swim

So, needless to say, I am beyond ecstatic right now! I never enter contests, and on a whim I entered Swell’s “Win It Wednesday” contest to win this ADORABLE bikini!

I WON THE GOLDEN TICKET! 🙂 The suit was just too cute to not try and win. I am a lucky girl! Check out Lolli Swim – they have some delectable suits. So glad this contest has helped me discover this Cali-based swim suit shop! How can you not love that bow? I have some shades that will go with it perfectly 😉 Check back to see some photos once I receive it!

They also have the bottoms in these cute colors:

Don’t forget to check out one of my all-time favorites Swell (I have shopped with them since high school and they never let me down!)
Happy Thursday!
