    MANE Events: Three Day Definition

    I walked around in snow flurries. I ran a 10K. I partied all night long two nights in a row. I attended a NFL game. I even slept with no scarf on my head whatsoever.  And I know you see it… I just know it.  The definition that I got from this style withstood the […] Read more…

    MANE Events: The Filthier the Hair, The Harder the Stare

    My hair is absolutely disgusting. I don’t mean it in the sense of “I hate my hair” but more in the literal sense in that it needs a good washing or two.  I did exactly what I said I would do last Friday: I took of my turban and washed my tresses.  To set the […] Read more…

    Fashion: Fall Festival Hipster

    Fall festival outfits can be tricky to put together since you never know how the wind may blow – will it be cold or nah?! Since I knew I would be in the desert (much like AZ) I wanted to expose just enough skin to not burn up in the sun, but covered enough to combat the sudden coolness that would hit post sunset.  Read more…

    Fashion: The Modern Cowgirl

    Howdy Family! I honestly don’t know why I felt so Western during this shoot – maybe it was the hat, maybe it was the ankle boots, or maybe it was the plaid shirt … either way, I channeled my inner cowgirl and had a fun time doing so. I must admit, I own very few […] Read more…
