want – long hair

I have had short-ish hair since I started college. sometimes shorter and more styled – other times more casual. but I have now been trying to grow my hair out for forever (post college). and it is the least rewarding idea ever. it never seems to get longer and I am constantly tempted by cute short looks.

I will probably want to learn how to curl hair. it just seems like there are so many more options with long hair.

is it possible that my hair will ever make it to this length? at least there is also a lot of long hair inspiration, to keep me motivated!

favorites – make a statement

big necklaces are everywhere.

I love how bright they are – perfect for adding a punch to a neutral outfit.

why are all these awesome necklaces so expensive. and why can so many people afford to spend this kind of money on a necklace? yes – they are awesome and I would love to have any one of them, but really?
my mission find more reasonable substitutes.

I have had the same standard pair of ray bans since softmore year of college, well over a few years. while I still love them I felt like it was time for an update.
I found this pair of vince camuto’s when I was in new york and instantly loved them. they fit well, nice lenses and they we’re only 75$.

for your girls

next friday we are hosting a holiday party for the girls. I am so excited I can’t stop myself from mentally planning. being in our early 20’s we rarely do a formal party with food and decorations and specialty cocktails – blah blah. it’s going to be awesome.
one thing for sure – we are going to do white elephant. it’s where everyone brings a present and grabs a number. in this game number one is the worst – because everyone after the first person to open a gift can either steal an open prize or grab a new gift. therefore, the last person is the luckiest because they can choose from all the open gifts or go for the lonely last wrapped gift.
for your girls
some people play this with tacky gauge gifts. this is funny, however, we will be playing with cute things at about the 25$ price point. I love gifts like this, I think it’s the perfect opportunity to splurge on something that you would never pay so much for. like a candle that smells awesome but is just crazy over priced. or an awesome lip color.

while everything is not making the cut – the chambray is a must. I’ve been eyeing the selection for a while and the jcrew option is up there with the best of em. I think it’s the perfect medium between the bottom end and the crazy expensive ones. the ivory bangle will also make a nice addition to my current collection, not to mention that it’s on sale before the 30%. But seriously after this I have to buckle down and exclusively shop for presents.
