D's outfit

wore this last week.
outfit details - AA tank dress, h&m skirt, baker shoes (my new favorites), really old scarf on my head,  double finger ring i made.
and that's all i gotta say about that.


after a lot of internal debate, i FINALLY decided to get a devacut.
well, i kinda had to be pushed a little to do it from my sis but still. i did it!

but i didn't have to go far downtown to get it. i actually found a devacut hair specialist right here in my hood at salon zoe.

this was, by far, the BEST hair cut experience i've had in a really long time. 
my stylist, angela, started out with a consultation and asked me to take her through my hair regimen. if you know me, i have been trying to perfect this for some time. she actually told me that my routine is fine...and sent me straight to get my hair washed.

she checked out my hair again and told me i had beautiful curls. i've been feeling insecure about my curls for a while now and it was nice to hear a specialist tell me how nice my curls are. (happy dance).  she did some cutting, then sat me under the dryer to see how my curls looked, and then cut some more.

and VIOLA.


i was so happy with the result, i have been convinced to buy the devacut shampoo. it's magical. and i've been searching for a really good shampoo for some time now. so regardless of price, i think i am seriously going to add the devacut shampoo to my regimen.

i'll stick with my conditioner, giovanni, though. i like it. and i am still going to do my avocado conditioner treatment once a week but without the added olive oil. she told me that too much oil will dry up my hair.

but i am in the market for a new leave-in conditioner. all suggestions will be taken into serious consideration (if the product is ALL NATURAL!).

besides my wonderful salon experience, i also got a tattoo this weekend. if you follow me on twitter, i twitpic'd it. check it out...

happy monday, folks!

my dad

what has my dad taught me?

Standing makes you grow taller.
It's ok to make mistakes.
Sometimes it takes a mullet and a playboy earring to make your spouse happy.
When your muffler rolls down a hill after picking up your daughter from field hockey practice, you laugh and say, "there goes the muffler!"
How to be both brave and strong.
It's ok to give your daughter $20 on her 22nd bday and say, "have a drink on me."
At times, advocating for yourself means walking out on your job.
When the mood hits, sometimes you just need to make a drink, throw on headphones and your old records and sing at the top of your lungs-offkey.
The best and most effective way to put the lights on the christmas tree is always up and down, not around.
It's ok to let your spouse dress you up as peewee herman or a woman for halloween. That's love.
Pizza before a bbq is a smart idea since you never know how bad the food might be.
Men should always cook dinner.
Even though the yankees are the greatest baseball team ever, you don't need to convince the whole world.
How to love. Hard.

RIP, dad. 
i miss you already.

D's catch up

i totally dropped the ball on blogging over the weekend. sorry folks! being in virginia for a wedding kinda kills any and all attempts to blog.

hope this pic makes up for it! 
it's me and the boo at the wedding we attended over the weekend. you can't tell, but i was SWEATING in this dress all day. it was so freaking hot. and my hair--don't even get me started on how my 'do was so inappropriate for a bus ride to the wedding with all of the windows open. EKK.

somehow, this pic still looks super cute.

outfit details: dress and belt from my sister's closet. 
oh--and this week is FLYING by. how is tomorrow friday already?

D's bday

I'm unenthusiastically waiting for my bday but these shoes I will be wearing on saturday night at my "birthday thing" make up for it. They are...perfection.

Oh and btw-yes, I am overdue on a 4th of july post. If you follow me on twitter, you probaby already know I drove down to virginia for a wedding. When I'm less exhausted and not blogging from my phone, you'll get a post about it.

For now-enjoy the short week!

D's outfit

i'm exhausted. and whiney. and not sleeping as well as i should be.
blah blah blah. whine whine whine.

and even though i've worn some cute outfits this week, i wake up way too early in the morning, i always take too long getting ready so i end up running out the house, and when i get home the only thing i want to do is take off my clothes and lay in my bed.
so, really, you're lucky you're even getting this end of the day pic:

outfit details - shirt: h&m, skirt: AA, headband: from italy (gift from my sis)

it's no longer as hot and humid in nyc as it was earlier in the week. hence the 3/4 sleeve shirt. this is seriously i love cool and breezy yet warm weather.

btw--been in a weird/terrible/whiney mood all week. lack of sleep really takes its toll on me and my mood...i MUST work on this. i bet the boo would be happy to hear me say that. :)
