embroidered

boho gingham dress





So everyone on Instagram has gone crazy for this outfit and honestly I was running so late I was lucky to come up with something cohesive!
I'm in love with this dress and I bought for a transitional fall piece but like always I can't keep myself from wearing something new! 
I get too excited!!!
So I've tried to link similar items or the exact ones below. 

The event I attended was hosted by @itschristinemarie and @paulmitchellthesalon_ and I got to meet so many new girls and had my hair done by two of the sweetest girls there!
If you are from the Naples area or just stopping by, they will treat you like a princess!!!
Did I mention how TALENTED they are??? 
I have already tried to recreate this look on myself... and failed.
I'm going to keep trying but I think I will have to leave it to the experts for any big events! 

For the dress click Here. It is still available in XS-M and it's on SALE!!!
The earrings can be found on this website search

ABACOS TASSEL EARRINGS

For similar items I've linked them below to find them easily.

Citrus shades








Lately, I've been drawn to brighter colors, I bought this fabulous vintage skirt at a thrift store and never wore it.
I finally paired it with this cute little floral top from H&M that i've linked below.
I've found that wearing bright colors isn't as scary as I originally thought!

Ever since I saw one of these round bags from Bali I've been obsessed but after seeing so many of them I didn't want to like them anymore!
Seeing this one in person made me change my mind and I just had to have it!
Now my next project is to make more storage for my bags!

Nice and Easy



For those who don't know I'm a photographer.
I work at weddings and events where I should be slightly dressed up but I have to be able to move.
I often travel for these occasions and the less items I have to pack the better!
Honestly,  I guess I'm also justifying the fact that I love jumpsuits these days!
They are just SO easy and I've worn this one twice and everyone always stops me to say how much they adore it!
Dressing for myself has always been a rule of mine, it's not about what other people think.
Getting showered with genuine compliments however is always nice!

Also I'm getting the hang of living in Naples, It's pretty nice down here!

I've linked this bag which is SUCH a good deal!

The Jumpsuit  can be found Here!

Hair Rescue

 I was once asked to do a hair tutorial... I laughed.
Not in a rude way but in a dumbfounded "I can't believe anyone would want to know how I get this mass of horse hair to look somewhat normal" way.
 Yet here I am a probably about a year later, surprising even myself!
 So what is the tutorial? What changed my mind?
A home remedy hair treatment that gave me super soft hair/less frizz for once!!! 
So of course, in honor of this miracle, I thought I would share!

Let's get started!!!  
On dry hair I applied about three tablespoons of coconut Oil and three pumps of Macadamia's Healing Oil Treatment, from root to tip. 
I have a LOT of hair and I took small scoops and mixed it in my hand as I went so you may not need as much as I had to use.
I left it in my hair for about an hour and I washed my hair three times to get all of the treatment out.
AS SIMPLE AS THAT!!!

 I've used coconut oil by itself and I've used the Macadamia oil by itself and never received the same soft results so I thought it was worth a share!

The coconut oil doesn't have to be a special brand and you can buy a large tub at Target FYI.
 I'll still put links below incase you want to order it fast.
Now for a side note in honor of my Rescue boy because he loves to crash into photos.

It was National adopt a shelter pet day recently and I just wanted to add a photo of our rescue baby.
We can't imagine life without our silly, sweet, handsome boy.
He brings so much joy and entertainment into our lives but he is also a big responsibility.
Many people buy pets only to realize AFTER that it's a life altering commitment that they don't want.
We chose to look for a shelter dog after talking about it for a very long time, before we were even married!
In the end I think Anubis chose us and we chose him.
I can't believe this but I'm actually getting a little emotional writing this!!! 
He's sleeping on his chair behind me and I can honestly say he's a huge part of our family.
So I'm not asking you to "adopt a pet" or to "not buy a dog" that's your personal choice.
 I'm just telling you about my experience with a pretty darn cool rescue who became my best friend.

I hope you guys are having a fantastic day and let me know in the comments your favorite hair home remedy or if you have an awesome animal friend! ;) 
I'd love to hear about it!
