LOOK OF THE DAY: SNOWY WEATHER CHIC FEATURING ZAFUL & ROSE GAL


Happy Wednesday, Everyone!

This weekend we got some snow followed by a gorgeous, sunny day with bright blue skies.  I was traveling for the last month and was glad that I didn't miss all the snow back east.

Plus, I finally got to bring back out my beloved Hunter boots, a Christmas gift from my parents a couple years ago, and am sharing the look I sported while running a few errands before some time in the city. The mix of sun after the freshly fallen snow truly made me and my heart happy! 

I've fallen in love with this warm, zipper accented, coat sent to me from Rose Gal, an affordable online boutique, which made my chestnut brown bag from Zufal pop.  I've started seeing a lot of zippers in fashion and think they add that extra something to give a classic black coat a chic edge.

Enjoy, and I'm wishing you all a lovely rest of the week!

REVIEW AND STORY TIME: HAIR TALK WITH COVER YOUR GRAY + PROMO CODE


Happy Friday the 13th, Blogland!

I happen to love Friday the 13th, how about you?  

I'm jumping into the weekend with a new Story Time feature talking about something that can be a little scary when you first discover them and tying it into a review.  

When I do reviews this year, I'm going to try and tie in a personal, relevant and true story from my life.  All in hopes of making them more relatable and sharing more of myself with each of you, just as so many of you have with me over the years.

Plus, I plan to share more of the things I use in my daily life that I love, along with those that don't work so well for me, since I love those posts and videos by other bloggers.  

Ok, here we go . . .

❯   story time   ❮ 



I have naturally blonde hair, with a strawberry undertones, that gets lighter in the sun, but leaves those parts underneath a darker, more honey, caramel blonde. 
Therefore, I'm pretty lucky that any gray or white hairs don't really show, and if they do they appear light or platinum blonde. 
However, about 2 years ago, while pulling my hair halfback, I discovered what I now refer to as by "skunk stripe."  Yes, that's right, think Peppy Le Pew
By the length of the white section, it had to have been growing for years, but I never noticed it since it was in an under section.  All I could really do was laugh. after the shock of first realizing it was in fact a grey streak (eeek!) wore off! 
Followed by taking a picture of said skunk stripe to send to my sisters, of course! ;) 
Also, I have a major cowlick, so I have always parted my hair on the right side, or my hair would simply bounce back over.  If I parted it on the left side my white streak would shine.
To this day, I still send random check-in pictures of it to my sisters for a good laugh and always let it make an appearance when visiting them because we get a kick out of it and why not! :)



When Cover Your Gray, a line recently featured on the Today Show, reached out to try their super affordable products, I wanted to give it a shot to see if I could say farewell to my "skunk stripe," which sometimes peeks through when I wear my hair up.

They were extremely generous and sent me the entire line, and then some!  After trying each, my Top 3 from their line for blondes are featured below, along with before and after pictures + my pros and cons for each.

Overall, I think the powder based products are the best and the price simply can't be beat. Plus, I discovered my new favorite face contour while using their Fill-In Powder, which means you can get 2 uses for the price of one. Yay! 

Enjoy, and I hope you have a great holiday weekend!
