Fashion Week Friday.

To be completely honest, besides a few blogs and articles on Fashion Week, I don’t really follow the event all that closely. But, you see all these “street style” photos of people hanging out between shows and I can’t help but wonder “How much did they PAY for that outfit?!” (sometimes critically sometimes out of pure envy).

Well. This article from Yoodot asked a few attendees that question and here are some of the answers:






“Priceless”  – I LOVE that answer! For more outfits and prices, click the images above or here. Thank you, Alison at Brown Eyed Style for the link!

… THEN there’s Jimmy Kimmel’s prank … So funny!

Treat yo’self.

Last week, I was just not happy with my hair. It was one of those weeks. So I made my first blow out appointment!

It while I’ve heard about them through blogs, etc, I have never been to a blow dry bar. They’re actually kind of rare in Northern VA! I ended up going to FLOW in Reston… and of course I picked the day that it was monsooning outside. Fail.

When I first walked in, I was barely greeted and was kind of sat in the chair for a few minutes without knowing how this was going to go down… but then my hairstylist, Shantelle, showed up. She was super cute and we had some nice conversation while she washed and blow dried my hair. They offer a few different styles and services. I opted for the “F.L.O.W.” blow out which is their namesake look. Basically straight with some body at the bottom. The whole thing cost $35 before tip.

she doesn't even go hereI was very happy with my results and would definitely go back and recommend to friends! Here’s an awkward selfsie of me after running with my hood tied all the way tight – like the guy in Mean Girls (“She doesn’t even go here!”)

Tuesday Dudesday: Real Men Swear

RealMenSwear – or is it RealMenSwear – it’s like PetSmart – is it Pets Mart or Pet Smart!? AH!

The Repeller of Men.

This blogger is amazing. She  just exudes confidence and creativity! I totally want to be friends with her.

Don’t you love the concept behind the name “Man Repeller”? I feel like every girl has a few items/outfits that their boyfriends (or men in their life in general) just don’t get.

Share Your Space.

From what I’ve observed, people usually love or loathe Ikea. I happen to be on the love end of the spectrum but also lose a little respect for someone whose apartment is ENTIRELY from their catalog.

But… did you know that Ikea has its own website for customers to share their room designs ?! I think this is genius. Its called Share Space.


It’s fun to scroll through and take a small peek into other peoples home  (I happen to really love this – to the point of slowing down as I drive by a home that has their blinds open and lights all on… sorry if that’s creepy. I feel like its partially their fault…). You can see how people have utilized their space and Ikea products used – then save designs that you really like (after creating an account – takes two seconds) and even upload your own submission.

I think my favorite part of this site, though, is their blog. The blog talks about featured photo submissions, new products, trends, before-and-afters (my favorite!) and more!

Want to spruce up your place in 2013? Stop by Ikea’s Share Space for some inspiration.
