BUCKLE UP

BUCKLE UP

Dress- Forever 21 // shoes- DSW

Hey! Long time no see! I hope you are all well! It's starting to finally feel like summer here for me as I am settling back into the swing of things in ol' RVA. I'll tell you what though, I do miss traveling around Asia a whole lot, that's for sure...

But I'm home for the summer and ready to make the absolute best of it! On my drive home from babysitting earlier this week I noticed this car, it was too cool to pass a photoshoot with it up... It's for sale, but luckily we were able to shoot with it free of charge!
 So when I was in Forever 21 the other day and tried this dress on I KNEW I had to shoot with the car. How PERFECT are they together!? It's all the right old Beverly Hills, color pop, art deco vibes thrown together in the dress + car match made in heaven. Did that make sense? You get the vibe, you get it...

Anyway, I guess this post is just to show off my new dress, this cool car, and some funky poses. I hope you like the photos as much as I do! Huge thanks always to Ally, my best friend, for taking them :)

I'm heading to the beach tomorrow for the Fourth, what are your plans for the holiday?? xo, O

SAUNDERS IN HONG KONG

SAUNDERS IN HONG KONG

Hello! It has been a month now since Saunders came all the way across the world to Hong Kong to visit me. A month!! How wild is that, it seriously feels like just yesterday. We had the absolute best time, from swimming at Shek-O at night, to having soup dumplings spray into our noses, we did the most and I'm so happy we did.

Having Saunders in Hong Kong really encouraged me to get out and do things that I wouldn't have otherwise. We were going on new and exciting adventures everyday, sweating our insides out in the Hong Kong heat, and loving every moment. I could go deeper into it, but honestly, so much fun happened it's difficult to put it into words, so here is the vlog from that week, and some fun photos :)
enjoy! xo, O

Good Morning! Now that I am officially home for Summer I am excited to start getting into a good workout routine. I've never been huge on working out, pumping iron, or getting "swoll", but I still love to get active and get moving! So whether that's yoga, having a dance party, or just going on a nice walk with friends I'm looking forward to getting on my feet and being more active this summer.

And the best part is that I can look good while doing it! Thanks to Old Navy! Old Navy has the best activewear, perfect for any type of work out and any type of body, it's comfortable and cute! Just wearing this cute set makes me want to get up and go! So what are you waiting for? Get movin' with Old Navy this Summer :) xo, O

GOING PINK WITH IMMORTAL BELOVED

GOING PINK WITH IMMORTAL BELOVED

HEY GUYS!! This past week I did something that I have wanted to do for who knows how long, I went PINK! Thanks to the WONDERFUL Beth and Drew at Immortal Beloved Salon here in Richmond, they also have a salon in Washington, DC if you are interested!
So let's get into it!
As most of you know, I have had my hair bleached for almost a year, I did it myself and damaged it myself. My hair is not as brittle as you may expect with bleached hair, yet it was quite dead. Drew was able to give me some tips though on how to bring it back to life.
The process began with touching up my roots, and making me all bleached all over.
Next up was the COLOR! My favorite part! I had some inspiration pics picked out and decided that we wanted to do all over pink with different tones and hues. Drew was the color master, he mixed all of these colors himself and they turned out so lovely.
Also, you can see in these photos how BEAUTIFUL the salon is. It is spacious and bright with lots of plants and room for clients! I loved the atmosphere, when we first came in we were offered various drinks, the employees really make sure we were comfortable which was so nice.
After the color was finished processing it was time for a trim! I didn't want to take off too much length so the majority of the cut was just thinning and layering. Beth is the queen of cut, she did an excellent job! Seriously you guys, she is the sweetest, and does a really fantastic job! My hair feels so much lighter and healthier after her cut :)
And finally the styling! Because what's a new do if you can't glam up and show it off! Beth did lose curls and braids for some photos.
I absolutely LOVE my new hair. It is so much fun, literally my personality on my head, what's better than that!?
A HUGE thank you to Beth and Drew. Beth did my cut and Drew was the mastermind behind the coloring! I couldn't be happier :)
