Stand & Deliver

Last weekend was amazing - not only did both Rye Bread's sister AND my sister come in from out of town, but I went to the most awesomest show there was (yes, awesomest IS a word, thank you very much)...NO DOUBT. So to know me is to know my LOVE for No Doubt. As in, I've been a fan for 10+ years, been to most of their concerts (in town, of course), and am somewhat obsessed with Gwen. Not obsessed like I know her birthday and favorite color, just obsessed with her style and just coolness in general. She's so cool! WHY?! HOW?! Why can't I be just 1/10oth of her coolness???

And now, I share some photos:

l.a.m.b. sneakers, no doubt shirt (from a 2001 concert)
my ridiculously overpriced souvenir ND hoodie...had to have it!

the sounds, am a new fan & will totally rock this outfit when i go out next. watch for it!

paramore killed it
no doubt was nothing short of amazing

After seeing Gwen's awesome hair, I am now obsessed with it and have been practicing it for the past few days.
All you need:
- 3 rubberbands (hair ties)
- A few bobbypins
- Hairspray / hair product

- Separate your hair in 3 sections: bangs, top crown, and bottom layer
- Take the top crown of your hair and haphazrdly tie it in a knot/bun - leave ends sticking out, but making sure your sides are tight
- Repeat with bottom layer
- Take bangs and twist them upwards and pin with two bobbypins

That's it! Great for getting your bangs and hair out of your face, but much better than a boring ponytail! P.S. I tamed this down for work - I usually knot my bangs as well, but figured my boss would give me a major

I also tried something new with my liner after scrutinizing a picture of Gwen from their program. I lined my bottom inner corners with liner about halfway. The result: a slightly different look that made my eyes actually look bigger:

Next time I'm definitely going to try to rock the red lips, but with the crazy 'do and red lips might be too much for work. =)


  1. omg, how fun!! I love Gwen and LOVE the hair!! Rock it girl!

  2. your hair skills KILL me! no doubt is superfun to see glad you had a good time!
