Why I Quit Doing This One Thing To My Hair

Balayage is such a popular hair technique but with long lasting damaging results – something I’ve learned the hard way over the past 2 years. When I first did it, I was so happy. My hair was sort of blonde…

How to Build Confidence in Front of the Camera

I’ll be the first to admit that being photographed scares me. I’m visually impaired, have third degree burn like scars all over my body, and have a lot of other health issues which make me feel like not a normal…

  • What do you do when you want to pack light but like a lot of outfit changes? 🤔👗 Why, still pack all the outfits, of course! 😀
--
Ok, i know, unrealistic, right? But it is possible! On my last trip I packed a whole weeks worth of outfits in a carry on - new outfit each day too. It was such a great success that I decided to write about what packing tips have helped me the most. And please, none of that "get this new suitcase" stuff 😂 Any old suitcase will do!

  • My photographer thinks that this particular pose reminded them of pictures of vintage hollywood stars. Also calls this the “Princess Margaret” because it’s a pose she did that we took inspo from. What do you think?

Being timeless is not just about what you wear, it’s an attitude 💄🕶

In middle school & high school I wore berets, trench coats, and loved everything vintage. I was the odd one out. But now I embrace a really timeless wardrobe. It’s classic, simple, but still glamorous.

The dress I’m wearing here was from @modcloth - several years ago (but it still fits like a charm). The camera, however, is not reproduction. Authentic vintage circa 1930s/40s.
  • I'm all for accessories that look expensive but are in fact, such a steal. This beautiful purse for example? $24! Don’t you just love things that look expensive but aren’t?

Looked gorgeous for the rosé terrace event. I was surrounded by luxury handbags and all I could think was "oh my goodness, this purse looks even better"

  • There's a rule for the Printer's Row Lit Fest: If it doesn't rain at least one day of the Lit Fest, it's not a proper Lit Fest! And rain means good luck.

And what luck I've had meeting my new friends at @thecoopersouthbank - a new residential property opening up near the Chicago River's south branch! I just checked out their tent, learned about their amazing property (it's gonna have many amenities & things to do), and of course, checked out some books! #thecoopersouthbank #ad
--
Stop by their tent: JJ and check out all the wonderful books for sale, learn about their artistic roots in Chicago, and grab a tote so you can pile dozens of books into - believe me, you'll need it!
-
How many books do you think I'll buy today? 10? 20? Who knows....

  • The world looks better through rosé colored glasses 🕶 Happy #nationalroséday 🥂

Spent the loveliest afternoon at the Roses & Rosé Garden Rooftop party at @thegwenchicago - If you’re local (or just visiting) make sure to check out this hotel! It was the perfect Rosé party with delicious foods all made with Rosé!
—
It’s beautiful. The words I would use to describe it is simply luxurious. The interiors are sophisticated but subtle with deep colors & metallic accents. The rooftop was spacious yet very cozy. I secretly wanted to take home the chair I was sitting in! 😂 Don’t think I would have gotten too far.

I had so much fun dressing up for this event. I wanted to show you my lace dress but I ended up taking this close up instead 📸 My lace dress is linked in my bio & if you watch my stories, you can see my whole look!

26 Thoughts On Turning 26

I turn 26 on the 28th and I’m not quite sure what to think. Birthdays are not something I make a big deal about for myself, but more for other people. I love organizing parties, getting people presents, surprises, and…
