some saturday mornings, i wake up yearning for scrambled eggs & croissant french toast from my favorite brunch spot in town. today was one of those days. so i quickly pinned up my awkward-length hair, wrapped myself in a comfy cardi and headed to brunch!
this is my life. i’m happy with it :)[ps - i've been on pinterest a lot recently! if you're on it let me know, click HERE

i was so excited to be featured as one of nashville’s 25 most beautiful people
in nashville lifestyles magazine. i must say it is slightly awkward posting this, but my parents would kill me if they couldn’t show off this post to all of their friends! anyways, i’m beyond flattered and thought i’d share the clipping with you:
the shot they used was my favorite, but here are a couple outtakes (i shot these photos a few weeks ago before i changed my hair color):
whenever i wear my hair pulled back like this, i always get a lot of questions about the products i use to achieve this look. my hair is really curly naturally, so to straighten it out i use this hana
flat iron. it’s seriously the best flat iron
ever and the only products i use are moroccan oil
and a whole lot of hair spray :)
hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
i get emails and comments asking what beauty products i use, so i thought i’d share my beauty picks!
i am a self-proclaimed MAC addict. it was hard for me to find foundations/powders that matched my skin tone and i finally found the perfect match at MAC. from there i ended up loving pretty much everything else! for a casual everyday look i use studio tech, powder, blush, mascara, and a little gloss. i didn’t picture all of my lip products as most of them are floating around in my handbags!
for skin products i love aveeno. their products are affordable and you can buy them at any drug store!
i spent most of my teenage years trying to tame my curls and finally found that chi products work best for me. i also love using chi heating tools – their blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons are the best!
in college i quickly found out that a $40 bi-weekly mani/pedi was out of my budget, so i learned how to do my own nails. to this day i always do my own nails and try to keep them short, manicured, and painted. clearly i have an obsession with opi polishes:
what are your beauty must-haves?
