The Bang Conundrum…

Hey guys, Christa here. Every year around this time, when the weather gets cooler, the humidity goes away and the clothing gets cozier, the idea that *this is the right time for bangs* sneaks into my head. I did bangs once, in college (seen at the end of this post), but I just kind of hacked them myself. I’m thinking that if I actually go through with this, that I’ll set up an appointment and get them cut by a professional, ha.

Here are the photos I’ve been seeing that are making me crave bangs…

Or it might just be that I just want to be Alexa Chung…

What do you think? Should I do it?! It’s only hair 🙂

And because you were dying to see what I looked like with bangs (plus some side bang action) in college…

{Almost} Fall Beauty Trends

Guys, 2 days from now it will officially be fall! Now that things are cooling off a bit and our faces won’t be melting off, it’s a perfect time to get a little funky with fun trends in the beauty department. Some big things we’re loving at the moment  —sharp cat eyes, smudged smokey shadows, vampy lips, rose-y cheeks & puckers, minimal nail art, romantic updos, fringy bangs with piece-y ends, braids galore, and balayage highlights.

What’re you all feeling at the moment??

Happy Weekend!

So, it’s August? Where did that come from? This month has been known to bring us a bit of sorrow in the past, as we suddenly realize that summer is already halfway through. But yuh know what? We say no. No to sulking, and yes to rejoicing. Have yourself a little (or a lot) of ice cream, and embrace these warm nights while we can… #liveitupbaby
