Well gang, today I got a Coppola Keratin Express Blow Out (I think that's what it was called at least.)

My friend Julia was going to get it done, and we have quite similar hair, and I've been hankering for a change, so I thought I'll go to!

So basically it just straightens and smooths the hair for a few weeks. In the summer especially my hair can get pretty wild and frizzy and out of control.

I took a before:


You aren't supposed to get it wet for up to three days. or sweat. or put your hair behind your ear. or put it in a point tail. or use any type of clip. so that should be easy!

Anyway, that was my day so far! And a bunch of other stuff. Also, Ben wrote an amazing article about going hunting in Florida with a congressman, during which he killed a boar AND scarred his head with the gun. Check it here!

Hey! I hope your Memorial Day Weekend was just lovely. It's quite warm here in DC. I am always that person who is sitting in the dark living room eating fruit salad when everyone is sweating it out on the deck for a bbq. I just would rather be cool, that's all!

Anyway, this little piece ran about me last week on Huffing Post DC which I figured I'd share!

And that's really it! I bought a hat from Target that looks just like one from Anthropologie for $10, and I'm still not sure I pull it off.

And since we're on the topic of me, I loved wearing my new drop earrings about town this weekend, which you can get here!

hey hey hey!!

I went to Florida this weekend with my mama, daniela, and her mama. Some photos: (mostly of daniela)

My dear old mumsy.

We went on a hilarious pirate ship booze cruise.

I got this shirt from TJ Maxx that I'm absolutely obsessed with. Also, I want Daniela's sunglasses from Anthropologie. 

One of these houses is Hulk Hogan's ex-wife's. And one is Sylvester Stalone's mom's. hahahah.


This place had the best coasters!

So that's about it. We went on a fake pirate ship, and drank a good deal. 

Now I'm back and it's rainy and I'm drinking my luke warm coffee and about to pack up a bunch of bike necklaces! What are you up to this monday?

I haven't posted in so long, the layout for blogger is totally different!! I DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS IS.

So. What's up. Pillows. That's what. And jewelry. Basically pillows and jewelry. It's insanity. All I do is pack pillows and cart them to fed ex. Sometimes I split them up between two different fed ex's in completely different directions so they don't get annoyed with me. Someone (other than my dad) tell me that's silly!

Anyhoo. I've devised a new bundling plan that will involve some sort of tightening straps that I squeeze the pillows with into columns like a newspaper stack! And then I will toss those babies into the zip car! and toss those babies into the Fedex! Yeah?? are you as excited as I am??

Anyway. I'm drinking white wine and blood orange san pellegrino and have been watching hours upon hours of Parenthood on Netflix. Do. You. Watch. This. Show.

I just started last night and keep alternating between tears and laughter. So emotional! My god! I've watched an embarrassing amount of it since last night.

Please, someone (Emily, other than you. We already have plenty to discuss) say you watch it so we can gab in the comments about it!

In other news, Ben has been off in Florida covering some congressmen for his magazine. He went boar hunting with one. And then he cut his head on the scope of the gun.

He gets home tonight, so I'm sure I'll hear all kinds of stories. I'm pretty sure he ate an alligator burger and said it was amazing. 

Also I just painted my nails:

And earlier today I drank this:

And look! My favorite postal worker at the post office gave me a few of these monstrous dirty mail sacks for me to bring packages in! 

And then I made all of these.
