Swanky Scrunchie

Scrunchie – Whenever I’m chillen in my sweats, there is a 99.9% chance my hair is in a scrunchie. It’s the epitome of hang-time, the grungiest of grunge looks, and the cloudy with a chance of never leaving bed kind of spirit. Swankyadj. 1. A person or object that is posh, high-class, glamorous, classy, upmarket, etc. Paired side-by-side I consider this the godfather of oxymorons; quite frankly it is the paradigm that runs not only my life, but also my fashion style.

Fiesta






            I’m jetting off to Mexico in just a few days so I decided to spice it up a bit by adding hair and nail tips. Usually I’m boring and my manicures are routine; I get the same color every time. But hey, if I’m going on spring break my nails should get a little fiesta action as well. Go big or go home, I chose to go big with blue. Each nail is a different shade, fading from darkest to lightest. Hop on the ombre trend and try it yourself at home! Nothing is worse than straightening your hair with humidity levels higher than the Empire State building. In weather like this nix the iron and let your hair go au naturel.  Next, add some Pocahontas braids and you have yourself sexy seductress beach hair. My inspiration was the first picture I posted, however I altered it a bit and made my own version. It’s quite simple if you know how to French braid. I French braided horizontally, and when picking up the next strand of hair, I dropped some along the way, causing a cascading effect. Sorry in advance for the lack of posing this upcoming week, unfortunately I will be reading a book on the beach in Puerto Vallarta (ha-ha).
