my hair extensions + a giveaway! (CLOSED)

September 21, 2016

Hello my lovelies.

When I first got my extensions, I received a lot of questions.

Where did you get your hair extensions?
How did you get your hair to blend so well with the extensions?
Did you have to go to a hair stylist?
How do you put them in?

And so on.. First and foremost, I got my hair extensions from Sono Hair Extensions by Donna Bella. Sono sells 100% human hair in many different lengths and colors. They even have clip-in bangs if you're not sure on committing! Haha. I got the clip-in extensions in 16", Jet Black/Darkest Brown.

I seriously love my hair. It really helps with the awkward stage of my pixie cut. I feel SO much more confident when I have my hair in! Ugh. Srsly.

Putting in the extensions is a process, but I get faster each time! So that's nice. The first time I did it, it took me over an hour. Yeah. The way I put in my extensions is exactly like this YouTube video. Finding this video saved me big time.. And no, I did not blend my hair, or cut it in any way! Layering the clips really helps with the blending. No stylist needed!

Now, I have some AWESOME news for you guys. I'm teaming up with Sono to give away a full head of clip-in extensions to one of you! I'm seriously stoked about this.

All you need to do to enter is:

1. Follow me on Bloglovin'
2. Like Sono on Facebook

Thanks guys! I'm so excited about this giveaway.

Romper: Forever 21 // Shoes: Forever 21

We just got back from Atlanta, GA last night! We were there for a business conference. It was a short trip, but super fun.

It was my first time in Atlanta, so we tried to pack as much as we could in the few short days. We went to The World of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium, Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, and of course Waffle House.

The World of Coca-Cola was pretty fun. Coke is my favorite drink, so it was really cool to see how it all started.

Aquariums are my favorites places, ever. Whenever I travel, I make sure to go to the nearest aquarium.. The Georgia Aquarium is voted #1 in the US and honestly, I didn't agree with the rating. Monterey Bay Aquarium is by far the best I've been to.. Don't get me wrong, the aquarium was enjoyable. But not as "wow-worthy" as Monterey.. I will say though, the Dolphin Celebration legit made me cry. Dolphins are such smart and beautiful creatures. That show alone made it worth it.

Visiting the MLK Jr. site was very eye-opening. It was so heart-breaking to see what Martin had to do to pave the way for the Civil Rights Movement. I only remember bits and pieces of it from learning about it in high school. So it was great to learn more, even though I can never understand fully what they went through. Especially with the Salem to Montgomery marches.

There was a Waffle House right next to our hotel, so we went several times. Haha. I seriously love that place. Utah needs to get one, stat.

I would have taken more pictures, but I forgot to bring my camera charger. Such a bummer.. I posted more pictures on my Instagram.

I also learned that downtown Atlanta has a ton of fun walls like this one pictured.

Happy Monday everyone!

on makeup.

September 5, 2016

I started wearing makeup in 8th grade. I wore thick black eyeliner on my top and bottom lids. (And yes, I shopped mostly at Hot Topic) Haha. Then once 9th grade hit, I began hating makeup. I never put anything on my face all through high school. I'd only wear mascara on special occasions.

After high school, I decided I'd try makeup again. I always shopped for makeup at Target. My best friend bought her makeup at Sephora and thought she was insane for spending so much money.. Just last year, I complained a lot about my Target foundation and she finally convinced me to venture to Sephora with her and get my very first (what I considered) "high-end" foundation.

And that's where it began. There was no turning back.

I love Sephora so much and now understand why so many people buy makeup with a higher price. The quality, wear, and look seriously can't be beat.

I've been playing around with makeup a lot recently (and learning so much). I've tried classes they have at Sephora and have been watching a ton of YouTube videos lately. Like, I just discovered the Beauty Blender yesterday and almost died of joy when I used it for the first time. Seriously. It's no joke.

I'm really no expert, but I've come to love makeup.. When I'm getting ready in the mornings I say to myself, "I just want to stay home and hang out with my makeup." Hahaha.
