Mastering french braiding and selfie photography

Well, it wasn't rocket science learning how to french-braid, but photographing my own turned out to be much more difficult to master. I spent the previous 21 years of my life without ever learning how to french braid my own bangs. I tried a couple times and failed miserably, and gave up after that. I don't know what I found so difficult about it now, because I finally sat myself down with a YouTube tutorial and figured it all out. Turns out, it wasn't rocket science after all.

Here's the video I watched that helped me do my first few braids. It's an adorable new mom whose cats keep meowing in the background, but nonetheless a very good braider and explainer.

And now, some miserably failed selfies. Enjoy.

Oh hey, forehead!

Looking forlornly down my own top.

Closer, but more a macro shot of my pores and sunspots...

Did I tell you I got new earrings? Also, what's up, armpit?

Har har. Happy Tuesday tomorrow!!

First thing's first...

Well, I got the job! Looks like I will be relocating to New York City in a couple of weeks.. So naturally, I started with the most important part of going to a new place. NEW SHOES! I blame my mother for my constant need for new footwear.. Anyway, here are my three newest obsessions for my feet.

Found these at Macy's for just $30! Rampage. Skirt: Ruche

I finally got these from Ruche!! (pants - Zara) They've been on my wishlist forever.. Only $36.99

The beauties above are also from Macy's, c/o Vince Camuto and bought during the Memorial Day Sale for a STEAL! :) :) :)

More updates on my pre-moving shopping/relocation craziness coming soon!
