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!
Best,

An Interesting Wedding Dress

My last post was about how I have recently moved in with my grandmother. Well, I haven’t been on too much because I do not have internet at her house yet…or cable! Yes, living in the stone age…haha. I took some photographs though of her very interesting wedding dress. My grandfather was in the army and stationed in Japan. When my grandparents got married he had a Japanese parachute. My great grandmother designed the silk parachute into my grandmother’s wedding dress. My grandmother was only 15 years old at the time, and my grandfather was 19. Can you imagine getting married that young? They were together the majority of their lives until my grandfather passed away in 2004.
