Biddles Escape


To start our morning off today, Taylor and I decided we needed a coffee fix, so we headed on down to our favorite local spot. The menu there is overwhelming because there are just so many awesome options to choose from. Not only are the drinks delightful but the atmosphere is incredible. When I walk in, I feel a sense of comfort and peace; super eclectic if you will. Taylor and I decided to skip out on coffee and go for a matcha (green tea) latte, which may I add was PHENOMENAL. I love matcha for it’s amazing health benefits. You should definitely look them up sometime.

As Taylor and I received our drinks , we decided to take them outside to the coffee shops deck. It was a beautiful overcast day. I know that may sound strange to some of you, but a lot of the time , these are the days that make me the happiest. I decided to dress casual and comfy. I wore a pair of worn out jeans, a Ramones tee with a black cropped jacket , a burgundy  scarf ( in which I made myself) and combat boots to throw it all together. I had a lot of girls asking me today what curling iron I used on my hair to achieve the look that I did. I used a 1 1/2 ceramic curling iron by Revlon.

The only products I use are TREsemme Thermal Creations as a heat protectant and garnier fructis marvelous oil. WHICH may I add is the ONLY oil that I have ever found to fully saturate and maintain / manage my frizz all day! I am very impressed with that product. My hair is fortunately naturally curly, so I don’t really have to worry about hairspray and IF I ever use anything I only use One N’ Only Argan Oil Volume hair spray- which is mainly a spray to help maintain frizz and protect your hair from the humidity. I am TOTALLY against hairspray otherwise. I don’t think people realize how damaging it is to their hair. All in all , it was another lovely day spent with my darling sister.


  

Fall Days Strolling Through The City


So I am really looking forward to this week because my sister decided to come and stay with me. During the day while Caleb is at work, it has been really lonely, so I am excited to have someone to do things with. We decided since it was such a beautiful day that we would take a stroll through the city. I love checking out all the local shops ! We first stopped at a local pizzeria to get some pepperoni wraps, and Taylor got buffalo chicken rolls. They were AWESOME! We then decided to drop by for some coffee. My addiction varies between iced green tea lattes made with matcha or an iced caramel macchiato.

What I love about this city is that everything is pretty much within walking distance, and I love how many bike trails there are. There are almost just as many people riding their bikes from place to place as there are people driving! Okay… maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but it’s still impressive. In Wv,, we really have it made when it comes to the convenience of getting in and out of the stores/ restaurants we love the most. In Pittsburgh, however, parking is nearly impossible and it probably is in your best interest to either walk, or ride a bike; but I can’t complain much because it encourages and promotes living a healthier lifestyle. So it is kind of a win win. All in all, it was a beautiful , eventful day.

 
 
  
   
   
  

 Fall fashion 


This weekend, my sweet husband and I had the privilege of attending one of my dearest childhood friends wedding. 

Fall absolutely calls for the best fashion! I love that this season makes it acceptable to throw a bunch of layers together, there really are no rules for fall !
I also ended up chopping off of some of my hair ! I had to get all of the rest of the blonde out, the dead ends were just unmanageable! It was hard to part with, but I think I like this length a lot! My hair grows pretty fast, so I’m excited to start fresh!

My Magical Day in Photographs 


As A lot of you know, last Monday, September 21 at 6 PM, I married the love of my life Caleb Joseph Lough.  The ceremony was very small, but beautiful. The setting was very intimate and the church only held about 60 people. We went to Minard’s after where we cut our wedding cake and had our first dinner as husband-and-wife with our immediate family. After dinner, we were blessed with a night at Lakeview manor bed-and-breakfast. All in all it was a magical day and it went by so so quickly. From experience, I must say to those of you brides out there who stress about weddings, the only thing that matters is that you are in fact getting married and I can honestly say that when I was exchanging vows with Caleb that nobody else in the room even existed. That is how it is supposed to be, that is the only thing that matters other than most importantly making the commitment to God that you are going to spend the rest of your lives together. With that being said, here are some of our photos ..

How to tame those natural curls


curly hair

Recently, many people have asked me what I do to tame my natural curls. In the past, I rarely ever wore my hair curly because I always felt that it was so big and by the end of the day it was just unmanageable. Until recently, I came across an AMAZING product that I use religiously.

YES

Garnier Fructis triple Nutrition oil, and it really isn’t lying when it says ” miracle dry oil” . If I’m being completely honest… I need about two inches off of the bottom of my hair, but when I apply this oil you can’t even tell. In the past, I would put the crappiest products in my hair to try and tame it. Such as – gel, mousse, and hairspray. If anything those are the WORST products that you could use and at the end of the day they just dry and damage your hair more by causing more breakage and split ends.  With this miracle product, I hardly have to apply anything else!

I wash my hair, and put it in a towel for about 5 minutes so that it’s not soaking wet, and then i comb it through with a wide tooth comb, section it off from the top of my ears and apply a palm full of leave- in conditioner throughout and then apply the oil. However, I spray the oil into my hands first, and then apply starting at the roots. You have to be careful with this product if you don’t have a lot of frizz and especially around the roots of your hair because a little bit of this goes a long way, but if you’re scrunching it, then it’s easier to get away with because it just looks like luscious locks.

My hair is extremely thick and coarse so it is perfect for me because I need all the moisture/ shininess that I can get. If you’re just curling or straightening your hair, I would only recommend spraying twice into the palm of your hands and  running it through the hair starting from your ear and working your way down. If you have natural curls this is truly a life saver. I put an unforgivable amount of heat on my hair every week and was so insecure about my frizzy nest in the past, but now I hardly ever use heat because I love how much healthier my hair looks, and I can also tell that using less heat has allowed my hair to grow quicker! So what are you waiting for ? If you have any further questions about the products that I use on my hair, feel free to email me or comment below!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like SPRING!

Taylor and I definitely don’t like to pass up capturing this gorgeous weather while incorporating some fashion of the day for you all 🙂

Sorry that it has been awhile. We have been working a lot outside of school with hair and make up and it has consumed us! Oh, and we’ve been playing in the lovely weather . Yoga outside is the best idea , EVER! Alone one on one time with God , meditating in his beautiful creation!

Here we have a couple of fun, spring, bohemian chic looks!

I bought my daisy pants outfit from wetseal!

Taylors paisley top is from Tj Maxx, leggings are from forever 21

and both pairs of shoes are from payless i do believe!

Interested in Taylors Lennon inspired glasses? EBAY!

I think that the boho/ hippie look is definitely very IN this year and this excites me SO much because it is what I have been getting in touch with my inner hippie self, so I am very pleased! not to mention, the hippie / boho style is all about COMFORT, and what is better than that? Especially when it starts to warm up, the outfits are breathable ! Hope you enjoy todays looks 🙂
