Summa Summa Summa Time

I was always really jealous of summer birthdays; bbq's, pool parties, beach parties, bonfires...all things you can't do in April when the weather COULD be hot...or COULD pour on you. One of Rye Bread's best friends just turned 30, and had a fiesta-themed pool party. Arriba!

romper from nordstrom rack ($20!), haviana sandals, f21 belt, h&m hat
Since it was a pool party and there was a (high) chance I'd go in the water, I made sure to wear lots of waterproof make-up (in the form of purple gel liner & waterproof mascara). Beach waves were achieved by only curling the top 1/2 of each section & leaving the bottom section straight:
I'll be sure to do a tutorial on both, so definitely stay tuned! In the meanwhile, some pics of the party:
a couple that drinks together, stays together. (and we drink a lot!)
birthday boy: brett, fit with his sombrero & corona
P.S. Thanks to everyone who's been so patient with me. And I love the idea of doing a "travel-themed" post!

On Tour Now..me!

Oh hello there! Surprised to see me? Me too. As my good friend Rhona said, "I know you're busy, but your blog needs updating." And that is true. Not that I don't think you wouldn't believe me...but this literally was my schedule over the past 3 weeks (seriously, you might think I'm on tour):
5/9 - LA to NY
5/10 - NY to Chicago
5/12 - Chicago to LA
5/23 - LA to Chicago
5/25 - Chicago to Cincinnati
5/26 - Cincinnati to Chicago
5/27 - Chicago to LA
5/31 - LA to NY
6/1 - NY to LA
6/6 - LA to Chicago
Needless to say...I've been around. So I haven't been able to do any tutorials (sads) or photos...but to prove my adventures...PIKSHURES!

First up, MOAR Chicago:
view from a condo balcony in lakeview, chicago
wangs - an "asian-inspired" bar
fiorentinos, my friend''s family-owned restaurant
target knitted vest, old navy over-sized tank, h&m bracelets
my good friend rhona (see above), who happened to be in chicago at the same time - at the roof at the wit hotel
old navy oversized tank, citizens jeans
Next up: Cincinnati! So close to home to Columbus, but so far...
downtown in the 'nnati
view from the millennium hotel (hint: do not stay there)
my senior creative, sarah & i at bootsy's
using me as a mock-up for one of our programs, lol
target shirt, martin + osa skirt, h&m scarf
Well as you can see, I've been around the block a few times, so I'll do my best to keep up with everything as I travel. Be forewarned that it might be a bunch of touristy pictures; sorry about that! :X On the bright side, I'm officially GOLD on American Airlines.
