completely exhausted, but ready for change!

Wow, I can't believe so much time has gone by since I last posted. As you can imagine, things have been really hectic around here. Today is the big day- time to move! My flight is at 5 PM this evening. I haven't been posting any outfits because, of course, all my things are packed up in boxes and actually on their way to Germany as I speak. I can't believe I'm really doing this! Once I get settled down in my new apartment, I'll get back into the swing of blogging. Until then, cheers!


Hot Hot Heat

It was so unbelievably hot today- 98*! I found this adorable necklace hiding in my jewlery box. I love finding things you totally forgot you had! It's like shopping in your own room, and for an unbeatable price too. I still need to find a better place to take pictures. Everyone always has such cute backgrounds, and you all get to see my laundry basket. I'm really sorry!

I had a coupon for Urban Outfitters, so I couldn't resist ordering all this cute stuff!
zipper bracelet, cropped peach top, tshirt dress, black blazer, acid wash jeans, hoops, and studded belt
I'll be sure to post pictures when I get my package!



I'm always really interested in what beauty products other bloggers are using, so I'm going to take the oppurtunity to share mine! Aussie is always my choice brand for haircare. I wash my hair at night, about an hour and a half before I go to bed. AND I NEVER USE HEAT!

I just use plain old head and shoulders for my shampoo (not pictured) because I tend to get dry scalp. Then I use the Burt's Bees and apply it only to my scalp. I use the Aussie Deeeep on the ends of my hair. The smell is to die for- coconut! Actually, all Aussie products smell amazing (and they're dirt cheap too).

My hair is naturally wavy, but unfortunately really poofy. When my hair is damp (not dripping) I apply a good dollop of Aussie Catch the Wave mousse- it's also a leave-in conditioner, which is great! I take it one step further by spritzing my hair with Aussie sprunch, and then SCRUNCH. I let my hair dry a bit more and then put it up in a bun before I go to bed. Sleeping on it gives your hair extra wave.

In the morning I use a bit of Tresemme tres two hairspray to get rid of any fuzzies I might have. If my hair is really dry, I use just a teeny bit of Bed Head Ego Boost on the very ends. Then I repeat the process again in the evening. If for some reason I don't have time to take a shower, I'll just pick up some baby powder on a big fluffy brush and apply it to the scalp, which helps to soak up any excess oils. My hair looks so much healthier now that I don't use heat anymore! Hope that helped if anyone was interested in what I use on my hair!


San Francisco

I just flew out to SF today to visit some friends of mine and I've already adjusted to the Cali life. If Germany doesn't work out, then I'd be quite content to move here instead! Everything is just so beautiful and I love the fog...In case you were wondering, no, this isn't my first time to visit the great SF. I've been here 3 times before, but regardless, it always takes my breath away! Oh how I love to be able to wear slouchy beanies in the summer.

This picture is from a few days ago, but I did my makeup exactly like this today.


Weekend Goodies

Went to Nordstrom Rack this morning in search of a new watch and wallet. Found just what I was looking for!

Coach Watch (please ignore my hairy arm...)

Dooney & Bourke Wallet- the plate is gold, not silver

The "Bella" Jacket (bella wears it in the twilight movie). thought this would be perfect for germany, although I felt a bit silly buying a coat in July!


I just had my wisdom teeth pulled on Wednesday (!), so my face is still pretty puffy. Because of that, I will kindly spare you a full face shot in this post. I decided to include some pictures of my EOTD (eye of the day), enjoy!
