THE RETURN

Image
I'm back! And as much as everyone has wanted to know about how my experience in Europe was- the first thing on my mind after seeing everyone I love and missed so much, was: my hair! Yes! My hair!

My Euro travels will have to be an entirely separate post..there are many stories to tell. 
As I settle into my first week back home, the first thing that I wanted to do was to take out the braids that I had somehow managed to re-do and keep up for the four LONG months of my stay in Europe. 
And even after my long struggle with the drying and breakage of color treated hair, I was still debating about putting BACK color in my hair- but then I took a trip down photo lane.

IN PRAGUE

Image
I am finally in Prague and I have been making my way around the beautiful city!!! 

PRAGUE COUNTDOWN

Image
With just a few hours counting down for my leave to study in Prague, I must admit that I am still amazed by how it was all able to happen so quickly, and even more amazed by how supportive people have been of helping to reach my goal of traveling. I am so thankful for the 100+ contributors that helped me to raise over $5,000 to make this dream I had of studying film possible. The support has inspired me in so many ways. In the next four months I will be posting updates of my travels and adventures and of course I will send updates on the film I will be working on while I am in Prague. 24 hours to go...

VINTAGE HAWAIIAN PRINT DRESS

More vintage finds in my aunt's closet! This one goes perfectly with a red bag I found at a consignment shop sale. The deal was all you could fit in one shopping bag for $25! I was able to fit at least ten purses, clutches and satchels in my bag. Click here to see the purse I found.

THE PIN UP

Image
This summer has been one of the rainiest, humid summers ever in DC! This has been one of my great go to styles to keep my hair out of the way! In order to slick up my edges, I used Eco Styler Gel with Olive Oil.

DIY BANDEAU TOP

Since last summer, people have asking me to do a tutorial on how I take some fabric, or a scarf that you can find at most stores and create a summer bandeau top. Here's a sneak peak of what the finished product looks like.
