Happy June everyone! I’m so relieved that finals are finally over and I can finally have some down time to relax and enjoy the California sunshine.
A few months ago I purchased a Groupon for a Brazilian blowout & haircut from Ginger West at Victor Paul Salon. I’ve been wanting to go shorter and donate my locks for quite a while now, but I have been so busy with work/school/life that I just haven’t had the time. (Side note: if you’re interested in donating your hair, click here for a list of organizations and more information.) I ended up chopping off 8 inches and donating to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Campaign since they’ve started accepting color treated hair. Ginger did an amazing job with my cut and blowout, I’m so happy with the results! If you’re looking for a new hairdresser, please go see her – it’s quite a long waiting list (I booked my appointment almost two months ago) but it is definitely worth the wait. It feels so much lighter, healthier and perfect for withstanding the summer heat. I love the way she cut my soft layers into the most flattering lob *aka long bob* ever!
After spending my morning at the salon, I met my friend Shannon at Fashion Island for lunch and some shopping at the Nordstrom (I got the cutest heels from their half-yearly sale!) The other highlight of my day was playing with a baby frenchie pup while he attempted to chew off my jacket strings.
My everyday style is pretty comfy and casual, which is always a good idea to wear when you know you’re going to be out and about the whole day. I love a good simple white tank and denim shorts, along with a neutral lightweight jacket just in case California weather starts acting bipolar as it usually does. And how cute are these metallic Steve Madden sandals? They’re sold out online but I picked this pair up at TJ Maxx for only $25! #savelikeamaxxinista 😉
