Unif is Enough

SEE WHAT I DID THERE? I know, I just ruined it.

Unif has always been on my radar…butttt… I never made the jump. I’m one of those stalker admirers that follow from the distance and just swoon behind a bush. But I think I may just confess my love soon by offering them $$$ in return for its loving embrace. 

Here are some items that be catchin my eyeballs:

1. Nevermind Cardigan/Duster $118 – http://unifclothing.com/womens/nevermind-duster

Oversized? CHECK!, Plaid? CHECK!, pockets? CHECK!!!

So it confuses me a bit because I prefer the more ‘vibrant’ red over the pale flannel color. 

2. Pyramind Clutch $98 – http://unifclothing.com/womens/pyramid-clutch

This kind of reminds me of the ‘triangle’ clutch Cheap Monday had awhile back. I think I liked that one more because it had a crossbody strap but this one’s got the details stitched on, which I like.

To be honest, the price is steep for a vegan leather clutch  – then again you won’t find this design anywhere else.

3. Reverb Boot $172 – http://unifclothing.com/womens/shoes/reverb-boot

OH these are SO BEAUTIFUL!! You may or may not have noticed, but that suede cuff ish part at the top of the shoe is ..*drool. That detail plus the silver zipper in the back is what separates it from all the other lace up chunky platform booties out there. For me I have too many other shoes lined up right now that these will have to wait. Not sure if I’ll actually purchase these since I have about 100 pairs of black booties already but dayum are they sexy!! MM MM MM!

Transition Weather Lookbook

LOOKBOOK numero dos!
Well technically it was the first thing I ever filmed…but coachella took priority.
I think I need to get a new camera for filming…I’m experiencing some quality issues, are you guys?

I’ve decided I need to figure out a style that fits me and is more interesting. And I hope to work towards even more professional looking ones. AHH not enough timeee so much I want to do!

I hope you enjoy! And I hope you can take these concepts and apply to whatever weather you are experiencing!

COACHELLA!

I wanted to put together as many clips as I could of the weekend! (Wow I took a lot of video). Hope this will suffice for now..the editing (sorry 😦 )is not the best but I wanted to get this done ASAP. I tried to make this shorter but there’s just so much content…I got it down to 7 minutes lol.

I will upload the raw files sometime soon so you can actually hear Kid Cudi, Chvrches, Ellie Goulding, Pharrell, MS MR, etc!!!

old OOTD

Hellewww!!

Wanted to post an old OOTD that I never got up. This was back in the fall, which explains the scarf. Although the weather lately has been random enough and windy that it’s totally acceptable.

As usual, I wore almost all black so I decided to pair a blue/white striped button up over unbuttoned to add some interest and texture. Then I added a red scarf for more color (and it was coldish that day).

Button Up – Hong Kong

During the fall/winter months I was obsessed with this faux leopard “pony hair”. I got this bag in my business trip to China. It was so cheap!

I kept my jewelry minimal, kind of wanted to just throw on something quickly –

Watch – Urban Outfitters
Necklace – (crap I forgot)

Happy Friday!

Festival Lookbook (Coachella)

I did it!!!! I finally did it. I did something completely foreign to me. I made a VIDEO! A LOOKBOOK!!!

If you didn’t know already, I’ve spent the past few years watching other vlogs and reading other blogs wishing that I could do it. Then a year passed with all this wishing and I never did anything about it. I always thought to myself that I wouldn’t be able to… that I could never do what those girls do. Fortunately I came to my senses and realized that I was being super silly in completing shunning it without even giving myself a chance!! Why would I predict the end without even having a beginning?

This took a lot of courage from me and I’m so happy that I did it. Of course I want to produce content that others do want to watch & will take interest in. Of course it’s going to take a lot of work. But at this moment I’m just so unbelievably surprised at how far I got. I’m just happy I actually made a video. I’ve met my goal! I made my own wish come true! If it doesn’t work out, at least I can tell myself that I tried & that I enjoyed every second of it :). (Ok maybe not the seconds that gave me ridiculous final cut pro errors…) BUT NEVERTHELESS, IT IS OUT AND I AM PUTTING MYSELF OUT THERE!

It would mean the world to me if you took a few minutes out of your day to watch this video. EVEN if you know you don’t like it by 3 seconds I’ll just be terribly elated that you took the time to press play! If you happen to like it, I wouldn’t mind a little thumbs up like or if you subscribed 🙂

Thank you for all those who encouraged me to get this far!! Thank you for all your kind wonderful words of faith even when all I had was just an idea in my head. Thank you!!!!

EZ-PEEZY SURF-Y BEACHY WAVES

ImageMy face is sexy huh.

Alrighty so what have we here? The lazy girl’s guide to effortless messy wavy hair.

From what I know there are currently 3 ways to achieve that sexy BAY WATCH hair.

1) Curling Iron w/ heat protectant
2) tie/pin/loop/twistytwist your hair when it’s wet & sleep with it. “no heat tutorials”
3) Using an amazing product “Oribe surfcomber mousse”

ImageI tried the 3rd option and I think it’s AMAZING! And here’s why

1) No heat required (unless you want to speed it up in which case you can use a diffuser/blow dryer)
2) Can do it when your hair is wet you don’t have to towel dry if you don’t want to
3) Very few steps

And here were my results!

ImageHere’s how you do it:

1) Wash your hair or get it wet
2) Shake & Spray Oribe Surfcomber Mousse into a golf size and from the bottom up, SCRUNCH it in.
 (palms up from the bottom of your hair, scrunch hair upwards & repeat in multiple sections to get the mousse all up in there)
3) Repeat on the other side
4) Let it air dry & try not to touch it
5) If you want to speed it up you can use your hair dryer or diffuser and dry it while you scrunch your hair with your hand

I was skeptical at first and this product is on the pricier side but I’ve gotta say I’m super happy with the results! Also if you’re wondering about the photos…I put sunglasses on because it was morning and I hadn’t put make up on yet. I also thought the mirrored lens with my bathroom mirror would be kinda cool. Then I gave up and just made creepy faces. by myself. in my bathroom. with a camera.

I’m just really cool.

You can get it from Amazon, or BlueMercury. (FYI Amazon price does not include the shipping so they both come out to be the same price…I got mine from bluemercury)
