half up twist on the plaza

You guys I have some thick hair and am currently  in the process of trying to grow it out so lets just say doing my hair sometimes is not fun! Lately though I have been really getting into styling it more, rather than just curling it or straightening it! I found out that by curling it so often I was damaging my hair so much. Because it’s summer time I know we all like to throw it up or do something simple but yet cute to make a statement! This is been  my favorite go to summer hair style. To accomplish those little wave curls I simply used my straightener!

Today my hair still had some curl it in so I am now wearing it in high pony! I don’t wash my hair that often… I know it sounds gross but I notice my hair way healthier after 3-4 days not washing it! I use a really awesome Dry shampoo I shared with you guys a few posts ago!  I know some of you are thinking well does she shower?! OF COURSE! I just put my hair is a cute cap and do my thang! ( I follow plenty of other bloggers/ friends that also don’t clean their hair for a lot longer )

I am thinking about starting some tutorials on hair and just simply sharing more videos on my blog! What do y’all think?! Let me know what you want to see!!

Off the shoulder, chunky heel trend

White off shoulder shirt (similar ) : Versona // Tan Over coat: Versona // Chunky Heel DSW

Happy Friday Night! I am loving this off the shoulder trend and chunk heel trend!! This is the perfect transition outfit from Spring to Summer! Not going to lie, getting use to this heel took a while and after a few hours my feet were killing! The shoe is comfy but totally need to break them in before planning on wearing them all day long! How great is this background ?! Andrew’s family home is right on a Lake in Michigan and theres the cutest house and beautiful front yard with this big tree and I insisted on stopping!

What’s everyone doing this weekend?!! We have some plans, but tonight we are staying in to relax drink some wine and watch some movies! Theres something about staying in on a Friday that makes the weekend last a little longer! I hope you all have a safe, fun and beautiful weekend!

Gunlake Pleated Coral Romper

Coral Pleated Romper: Versona

This past weekend was such a quick, fun and exhausting time in Michigan. We left late Thursday night after Andrew got out of work, which helped Luther sleep the entire way and arrive to the Mitten around 8:30 AM its safe to say we didn’t sleep once we got in! We had plenty of places to stop and see everyone and show off Luther, of course! When we arrived to the lake we got us some lunch and let Luther meet is Uncle Charlie ( Salt & Pepper 11 year old Miniature Schnauzer ) and relaxed. Later that day we went to make our visits and ended up at the end of the night at my mom and step dads for a yummy home cooked meal.

This Dock is right in front of Andrew’s family home. I have to say it really never gets old. Coming out here and being able to sit right on the lake and enjoy some cocktails and family time. I knew this outfit would be perfect for the day on the lake. This is Gunlake a smaller town in Michigan near Kalamazoo and the Grand Rapids area if you’re not familiar. My hometown is about 30 minutes from Gunlake.

Our Weekend Recap:

Saturday: We woke up and set up for Al’s Retirement Party ( Andrew’s Father ) and relaxed as much as we could until that night we celebrated his dad’s retirement party! It was a hoot, practically a family reunion for Andrew! I absolutely adore his family, not only are they are so sweet and beautiful on the inside and out  but THE FOOD! I am such a foodie. I love when I know they are going to cook because I always arrive on an empty stomach and have 3 plates full!

Sunday: Mothers Day, I planned a nummy brunch for Andrew’s family and my mom and step dad at the Waldorf Brew pub and bistro a local brewery in Hastings, Michigan. I loved spending the day with my mom and loved being a dog mom. We knew we were heading out Monday AM so we went to bed super early!!

Monday: We headed back to KC! And I received some really really great news regarding my blog, and my photography business!! That I cannot wait to share with you all VERY SOON! Other than that, Luther did so good until we got about an hour away from our apartment and totally wanted out and wanted to play. Poor thing, as much as we should have stopped we wanted to get home so we just pushed though! He did so good I can’t complain. Yesterday I stayed home to regroup, clean, grocery shop and do laundry! It felt so good … meaning I wish I was still in bed right now! Ha.

NOTHING feels better than being home! Let me tell ya. I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day weekend!
