Fishtail Fanatic

A couple weeks ago while watching Fashion Star, Nicole Richie had the best fishtail braid hairstyle.  It was in a high pony tail with hair wrapped around the base of the pony tail with a fishtail braid coming out. That was a little strange of a description but just look at the picture above, which by the way is the only picture I could find of the hair style hence why it has that speech bubble.  I just love the look.  It looks fresh and summery and is better than a simple high pony.  Below is a video on how to do a fishtail braid if you don't know how.  It isn't too hard but whenever I do it my arms get really tired.  Also a quick word about Fashion Star, I love it!  You guys should watch it and if you haven't been but want to start I think the whole season is on Hulu.

A Few Things

I don't really have a theme for this blog post so instead of trying to force a theme or not post at all I thought I would just post a couple of things that I am loving right now.

I love these painted feather earrings, but I think that I could make them myself and save twenty dollars.  If you are not as inclined you can buy them here.

I love these sandals for summer.  I love the beading and the color and I want them in my closet right now.

These are the cutest vintage shorts ever.  I could wear these all summer.

Smile File

This reminds me of one of my favorite Florence + the Machine songs and it is such pretty colors.  Enjoy your Monday!

I Heart It

Today I went on a heart shopping spree.  I guess two heart items does not constitute a full on heart attack (haha see what I did there) but still I am in love with hearts.  I bought a cute gold heart necklace exactly like the one below.  It is delicate and simple and I love it.  I also bought a heart sweatshirt.  I tried to find the exact one I bought because I think it is awesome, but it wasn't online.  Mine sweatshirt is grey and baggy with a huge gold heart on the front.  The one below has a similar feel, it is just a lot brighter.

Half Marathon Mania

So I ran the Chicago Marathon in October and I vowed never to run another race again, but the other day I decided it was time to get back into running.  I went outside and ran a nice three miles.  It was so great to run without the pressure of having to train for a race, but it also got me thinking about taking up the challenge of running another race.  I have decided to cut back the milage and only run a half marathon and the race I have chosen is going to be... The San Francisco half marathon in July!  I'm looking for running partners so if anyone is interested let me know!  Also to get me going I want some new workout gear.

I love the Nike Lunar Light shoes I wore during my marathon but they don't make them anymore.  I think these shoes are similar not to mention they are on sale and really cool colors.
To keep the colorful theme going these shorts by Lululemon are so cute.  I love their running shorts because the waist band is much more comfortable than on other workout shorts.  Although they are a bit pricey for workout clothes they are worth it. 

Finally, I don't really care what shirt I run it and I usually just use a free oversized t-shirt, but since it will be summer soon and I might as well get tan while running I'm planning on turning a few of my t-shirts into cool workout tanks via this tutorial.

Laura Mercier Purifying Oil Light

I just wanted to take a quick second to let you know that this cleansing oil is amazing! My roommate has it and doesn't like it because her skin is oily, so lucky for me that means I get to use it.  This stuff is perfect to remove makeup quickly and it leaves you skin feeling so soft and clean.  It is pretty pricy for a cleanser so I'm going on a hunt for a cheaper but similar product.

Capital Cities - Kangaroo Court
This song is just so catchy.

Best Bra Tops

I love this look.  The high waisted skirt and the bra top are so cute for summer and I really think it is going to be a big trend.  Most of the bra tops I found were lace, which is cute, but I really love the how structured Selena Gomez's top is.  Below I found some options, although they are a little longer, but still cute and right on trend.  You can find the first one here and the second one here
