DIY Heart Print Pattern Dress

Hey girl, whatcha doin’? Hey girl, where you goin’? Who’s that girl? Who’s that girl? It’s me, knockin’ off Zooey Deschanel’s red heart print dress. The adorable New Girl wore an adorable red dress with adorable white hearts during her SNL monologue last year. Well, I also have an adorable little red dress from H&M, but it was missing something….those little white hearts! So I went to the craft store, bought some white fabric paint, and went to town on my little red dress. It was a success, and I’m going to share with you how to do it! You can paint those hearts anywhere- dresses, jeans, shirts, whatever floats your boat!

Garnier Olia Hair Color Review

Hello! This morning I decided it was time to eliminate those pesky little gray hairs of mine and make a change from a subtle ombre to solid color. I’ve been sporting a modified ombre since November, meaning that I lightened my tips to a caramel shade, but only on the underneath panel of my hair. I enjoyed the look, but I’m ready for a little change back to normal. I decided to give Garnier’s new oil-based hair color a try in 4.3 Dark Golden Brown. Continue reading

Lately…On My Plate

1/2 medium cucumber, grape tomatoes, 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese, 1/2 Haas avocado, black pepper, dill

Hi peeps! I’ve been obsessed with this simple, nutrient-rich salad lately. That, and I may have a little avocado addiction (avocados = nature’s butter).

I probably don’t need to tell you about the health benefits of avocados, but in case you were wondering, click here. Bon appetit!
