As a little girl, I can still remember going to Nordstrom with my parents in Tysons Corner. It was the cream of the crop- a perfect shopping experience that my parents loved and passed down to me. I have fond memories of dining in the Nordstrom Café with my parents, back to school shopping with my grandma, and visits to the beautiful salon shoes to ogle over designer shoes with my mom. I’ve been a Nordstrom shopper literally my entire life and I still consider Nordstrom to be one of my favorite places to shop.

While I love a visit to Nordstrom, as the time has changed, shopping has evolved and online shopping at Nordstrom has become a habit for me. In college when onlin...

This past Saturday I attended Diner en Blanc in DC for the second year. Diner en Blanc was started in Paris in the late 80s and is essentially a fancy picnic where everything you wear and bring is white, and you cart all of your supplies with you (table, chairs, food, decor, etc). Diner en Blanc is know for its over the top reputation and is one of the best events for people watching in all of DC, as people go all out with their personal style and looks.

Given this fact, I knew my outfit and entire look had to be good. Real good. While perusing the ELOQUII website for white dresses, I came across the Puff Sleeve Blazer Dress and instantly knew it was the one. I was...

Well, I finally did it. After years upon years of toying with dying my hair a pastel color, I finally built up the guts to do it. It wasn't all me though, my friends at Illusions of Georgetown played a huge roll in this and I couldn't be more thankful. Today I'm sharing all the behind the scenes and details of my temporary lavender blonde that we created, specially for my Vegas trip & wedding vow renewal at the beginning of the month.

I have been talking about coloring my hair light pink for years. I've tested it out my dying a streak or 2 of my hair pink in the past, but it wasn't enough for me. I felt if I was going to do it, I needed to go all in. I also wanted it to...

Hair care is a big deal for me. As someone who spends hours and hours in the salon to get the perfect blonde at Illusions of Georgetown, the upkeep is something that is important to me, and a must-do. I have always used hair products, but it wasn't until I started going to Illusions that I really understood the importance and necessity of using products specifically for your type or color of hair. 

One thing I can count on, is always have great products that help with the color and health of my hair, that are recommended at Illusions. Most recently, Amanda, my colorist, recommended a new shampoo for me to help with the health of my hair. Especially in summer, and the mo...

It is with much excitement that I’m writing today’s post. February marks a special relationship for myself and my favorite salon, Illusions of Georgetown. After a year of working with Illusions on various hair and event collabs, I am now the official Brand Ambassador!!! If you remember from my Hair Journey post, Illusions was the salon who fixed my hair disaster last January when my old colorist inadvertently dyed my hair brown. It was a full on hot mess. It took my hair months to recover from that screw up, and I have Illusions to thank for getting my hair back to health. Illusions holds a special place in my heart for helping me through the process and I am SO excite...
