So I recently cut off more than half of my hair. I have approximately more than a foot to donate but I haven't decided exactly where yet. It was something I have been wanting to do for a while. The length looks so good on the likes of Alexa Chung and Freja beha erichsen but once I discovered the blog Gary Pepper Vintage I fell in love. Nicole warne is basically my style idol and the cut won me over. I do the winged liner everyday and everything, but that actually started before I found her. The actual experience at the salon was utterly liberating. Everyone was so shocked that I would cut away my long tresses and they all screamed "no!"as my hairstylist, Kimberly, performed the deed. To be honest, I had to keep myself from giggling! I was so sure of my decision that I was laughing at everyone else who told me it wouldn't look good. Not in a mean way, just the kind of way in which it was a symbol of my own confidence. Confirmation from others or not, I was going to live for myself. I have hid behind the length for so long, truly believing that I wouldn't look pretty without it. But I understand more than ever that as long as I am pretty to myself no one can tell me different. Well they can but just smile at them and maybe kill them with a little kindness. When I can back to school, the reaction I got was overwhelming. People would stop me telling me that they loved it or it looked so good; I know the reason why might have to do with a little self assurance boost. So ladies, I hope you all decide to make your best accessory a glowing smile!

Well we all know who has been an utter sloth now that school has ended. Yours truly that's who. Anyway these pictures are from Memorial Day weekend when I was in Vegas. Memorial Day is around the time when everything feels like summer, and we spent the weekend like it was. We cooled off in the Marriott pool and gorged ourselves on Thai iced tea boba. The weekend was ridiculously gorgeous and it was great fun to pretend it was summer already. I will be posting a heck of a lot more often now that I have all the time in the world. I will be leaving for the Bahamas very shortly and expect some tropic takes up on the blog!
