Another Update Post....

I know, I know, its been a while....Ive failed yet again at being a consistent blogger. Its getting to the point where I feel like i'm not allowed to even call myself that anymore. But for the sake of being positive, maybe its just a great opportunity for a kick ass come back. 

So....whats new? LOTS

BYE  BYE PURPLE HAIR!

My hair is white! Im officially a "blonde" and i'm loving it! I will eventually go back to purple but I wanted white for fall time, its also easier maintenance and because I can get it wet more often I get to start taking my weekly baths again. Which I needed to bring back after how this year has gone. 

I originally went purple because I needed some excitement in my life after my grams died. The purple was a fun distraction, it was something I could focus on, have fun with, and the never ending compliments made me feel better about life. If you're interested in info on pastel hair, I filmed a video all about it > HERE <

For those in Utah looking for a kick ass hairstylist who will instantly become your newest best friend, go see Cookie at the Sugarhouse Lunatic Fringe. He is seriously the greatest.  He's changed my life for the better, Cooks I love you.

HALLOWEEN! 

For Halloween this year, Josh was "Harry" Potter and I was his patronus. It was actually Cookies idea, so fun! We needed something cheap, I had already been Harry Potter from a previous year (cause hes a bad ass) and the white hair worked for the patronus. It was also a really great excuse to wear a flower crown and buy this adorable poncho which ive been obsessed with ever since! 

A TRIP UP TO THE MOUNTAINS. 

It was one of the best moments ive had this year. Gorgeous scenery, fresh air, a little rain, a long drive, rad music, and the greatest poncho...

AND...A TRIP TO THE HOSPITAL! 

Long story short, stress finally knocked me on my ass this year. After a night of throwing up, my heart rate at 135, a fever, and severe dehydration I landed in the ER Thursday 11/5/15. It was scary and intense and I never want to do it again. Heres to endless amounts of water, meditation, and letting the pain of this year go. 

A TRIP UP TO THE MOUNTAINS AGAIN! 

We have created a really great tradition with our friends to get together every month and do something as a group! 

This last weekend we made a trip up Millcreek Canyon and spent half a day in Brians family cabin playing games and having sarcastic conversation.

We started the day with brunch at Roots Cafe which was pretty good. The coffee was amazing! And after the cabin fun we finished the day with sushi at Happy Sumo. 

YOUTUBE GIVEAWAY!!!!

This cutie is the lucky winner of the Lorac Pro I did on my YouTube channel last month for hitting 500 subbies. Congrats to Kristeen!

My first giveaway was smooth sailing! No drama, no fake accounts, and no spamming. I seriously have the greatest followers. 

I say it all the time, but YouTube has been the greatest outlet for me. ESPECIALLY this year! 

My subbies have been so supportive and loving, I cant thank each and every one of them enough.

I wish I could give you all Lorac Pro pallets! 

I'll be doing another giveaway when I reach 1000 so stay tuned and if you dig my channel, share it with your friends! 

 


In other news...ive started working on my year end video which I know will be a really incredible healing process for me. Josh and I have started a ritual of meditating every Sunday after my very relaxing spa nights. My new work comes with Yoga classes I partake in on (most) Fridays. We're looking at another Disneyland trip. Our basement flooded. Im really excited for Christmas this year. Things are rolling. Life goes on. 

I think thats about it. 

Much love!

Denim Jacket OOTD

Denim jackets have recently become a new favorite of mine. Ive had this one in my closet for some time now but until recently I didnt really know how to style it. 

Denim jackets have had a pretty consistent run fashion wise. They seem to be a pretty basic staple piece that most of us have in our closets but often I hear gal pals say they dont know what to do with it, and for a while I felt the struggle. 

After some messing around I have discovered a new favorite outfit of mine. Its easy, comfortable, casual, and a little "WILD". I hope you enjoy this denim jacket OOTD (outfit of the day).  

This denim jacket is from Target. I prefer to wear my denim jackets open because they tend to be pretty tight with not a ton of flexibility. 

The WILD shirt is from Jc Penneys MNG line. I love how free flowing this top is, its super comfortable and I like that it adds a little bit of sass to any outfit. I paired it with some basic black skinny jeans. These ones are from Old Navys rockstar line. 

As for Jewelry I added a fun staple necklace from H&Ms Divided brand.

I think big statement necklaces go really great with denim jackets. Its a really easy way to spice up the basic-ness from the denim jacket. 

In the winter time I will button the denim jacket up and add a scarf. Its again a really easy way to change it up and make it your own. 

This watch is one of my absolute favorite pieces I own in my closet! Its from Nixon, I believe its called "Kensington".

 

For shoes I have on these ankle booties from BooHoo. I love these, although one of the buckle ends fell off on one of the shoes. They arent the best quality but they are adorable and they are fairly comfortable. BooHoo is pretty hit and miss, and its pretty comparable to Forever21 or H&M as far as price and quality goes. 

What do you pair with your denim jacket to make it your own? Leave a comment below! 

Much love to you!
