JEANS AND A TEE...

Putting together this look for Michelle was as easy as 123. A T-shirt, distressed jeans, and an amazing pair of booties are three things that every woman needs to own. If jeans and a basic tee are your daily go-to's, you already know theirs nothing basic about them. Finding the perfect fit takes time. If you haven't discovered CHASER brand yet, you're missing out. They are hands down my favorite brand to buy t-shirts from. The fabric, the cut, whatever it is just seems to fit any body type perfectly. In this specific case I was instantly attracted to this tee because of the exposed cut-out in the back. This added detail gives you the option to continue wearing it right into the night! Personally, I feel the sexiest on the days I keep my look simple and effortless. it's a no-fuss take on fashion! XOXO-H

LIFE.

HELLO BEAUTIES! IT'S BEEN TOO LONG SINCE I LAST POSTED, BUT NOT WITHOUT GOOD REASON! THE SALON HAS BEEN WONDERFULLY BUSY, LOGGING 10-12 HOUR DAYS BEAUTIFYING MY CLIENTS WHO ARE ALL WANTING TO GET THEIR HAIR FRESHENED UP FOR SPRING! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! (CHECK OUT SOME OF MY RECENT WORK ON INSTAGRAM @BORNTODYEHAIR). 
IF I'M NOT WORKING, MY DAYS OUTSIDE OF THE SALON HAVE BEEN SPENT 1 OF THESE 3 PLACES; WITH MY LITTLE SISTER AND BRAND NEW BABY NEICE, BENTLEY (NO TIME TO WRITE BLOG POSTS WHEN YOU HAVE A SWEET LITTLE BABY IN YOUR HANDS)! THE GROCERY STORE- SHOPPING AND PREPPING MY MEALS FOR THE WEEK (FINALLY KICKED THE BAD HABIT OF EATING OUT FOR EVERY SINGLE MEAL), OR ENGAGING IN SOME TYPE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY. I'M BACK TO WORKING OUT WITH MY TRAINER AT LEAST TWO TO THREE TIMES A WEEK, AND IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE TRAINING AGAIN! CASEY AND I DESPERATELY NEEDED A MOVIE/ KETTLE CORN INTERVENTION AFTER THE PREVIOUS WINTER MONTHS, SO RECENTLY WE'VE GOTTEN REALLY INTO HIKING! IT'S SUCH A HEALTHY ACTIVITY WE CAN DO TOGETHER AND WE FEEL SO MUCH BETTER AFTERWARDS! SPRING IS HERE AND THIS TIME OF YEAR ALWAYS MOTIVATES ME TO GET MY SHIT TOGETHER AND BACK ON TRACK! I LOVE IT!!!
