You ever felt like you were on the cusp of something new? Something big? Something fun? As we finish up the first half of the year this month, I can’t help but be optimistic for the rest of the 2018. Maybe it’s the slew of vacations I have planned or maybe I’m just manifesting the change I want to see? Whatever it is, it’s definitely coming threw in my wardrobe choices. I seriously can’t tell you the last time I bought an ankle length dress, but this one from Urban Outfitters was so darling I couldn’t pass it up—especially since it was on sale. Actually everything I’m wearing was off the sales rack.

Word of advice: Never sleep on the sale section, especially in between seasons.

OOTW: Lady In The Red Dress

I’ve finally gotten around to editing these photos! I’ve been so excited to share these with who ever actually looks at this blog. Besides being crazy busy with a new Assistant Editor job at Associated Publications and just running around doing odd paying tasks for the family, I’ve been exhausted. It’s late and I need to get to bed soon, but before i go I want you guys to take a glimpse at these lovely shots my friend Tatiana, from the blog B.L.I.S.S. For Singles,  took of me at the Garfield Park Conservatory. Blooper shots are mixed in. Enjoy!!

#OOTD: Denim Overalls

I just really wanted to show off my new overalls my sister got me for Christmas last year. She works at HM so she has the hook up with that discount. Every dollar saved counts! I’m excited about this particular pair of overalls, because they’re a replacement for the pair that was lost when Megabus lost my suitcase, found it, and then donated it. That is a long and angry blog post for another day.

I hope this post inspires you to wear more denim this year. Start by buying yourself a pair of cute denim overalls. You’ll thank me later.

3 Easy Tips For Faster Hair Growth

Getting your hair to grow can be a frustrating process, but it doesn’t have to be. One of my old coworkers commented on how long my hair had gotten on Instagram and asked about my hair regiment. I replied that I really don’t do much and that’s true. I firmly believe that the less you’re in your hair the better. But to get more specific and to create a writing sample for this hair magazine I’m interviewing with, here are three simple tips to help you reach your ideal length.

Tip 1: Use little to no heat.
It doesn’t take much for hair to get heat damaged if you’re using too high of a heat setting or not using a heat protectant when styling. Put the flat iron and curlers down and try to use heat as little as possible.

Tip 2: Trim your ends monthly.
Your ends are the oldest part of your hair and when not taken care of they tend to split. Getting monthly trims will help get rid of dead and damaged hair, which will lead to healthy hair growth.

Tip 3: Don’t over manipulate your hair.
Putting a lot of stress on your hair from over styling will cause your hair breakage over time. Work low maintenance hair styles into your daily routine to put less stress on your hair.

Hope this helps! What do you do to maintain length? Let me know in the comments.
