New Candy Apple Red & Dandelion Yellow Hair

New Candy Apple Red & Dandelion Yellow Hair

Hello! I absolutely busted a gut when I saw my featured image photo because it is the honest to god truth. My hair stylist, Anna, has been my go to gal for well over a decade and I would never trust anyone else to even look at my hair. I recently decided that I wanted a change and Anna created what we coined as “convertible hair”. AKA half blonde and half red, expertly designed to be able to move the different colors into a whole new style:

We both loved the blonde but we both knew that the colors weren’t exactly what I wanted. When I think red I think red red and when I had blonde in mind I wanted it to be a super bright pop. This first style was a great first crack and the second go at it was just as good. But was it what we had in mind? Not quite.

However, as the old saying goes, the third time was a charm. Anna ordered Pulp Riot colors special for me and I finally got the candy colored hair of my dreams. Check it out:

To achieve my light bright hair, Anna bleached it for about twenty minutes. And, I’m not going to lie, I kind of like how I looked all blonde! After washing out the bleach and drying it, she applied Pulp Riot’s Fireball for my red and Satire for the yellow and we let it sit for thirty-five minutes.

Obviously the end result is Skittle colored vibrancy but the dye in itself was the exact same color as the finished product and as soon as she put it on we had a very good feeling about it. Not to mention that the Pulp Riot dye smells like Sweet Tarts – very appropriate for hair that almost looks good enough to eat, lol!

As soon as Anna washed the dye out, we were freaking out before we even dried it because the colors were that bright soaking wet. Anna told me that she has never done color like this before and I am so thankful that I was her guinea pig. My request was, admittedly, a tall order and she did her research and her absolute best to give me the results I wanted.

The results? Hair worthy of a cartoon character and off the charts self-confidence. We both had such a blast with this quest for candy colored hair and now Anna knows how to get my locks just right every time. The next color I have in mind after I grow bored with the blonde? Hot pink, of course!

What is the craziest color of hair you ever rocked? How do you experiment with bold colors in your personal style? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

NYX Fireball Eyeshadow Swatches

Hello everyone and happy first day of August! So as you guys know, I’m not the biggest makeup girl in the world. I am the most undaring, untalented makeup applier that there is – and the thing is, is that I don’t really care. Makeup is and always has been my older sister’s territory. She’s absolutely phenomenal at all manners of makeup application and has been since we were teenagers.

Kristen loves to shop at Sephora and lives for her monthly Ipsy subscription. Meanwhile, I live for her semi annual makeup clean throughs so I can get the odds and ends that she doesn’t want. Kristen’s makeup clear outs can rid products that she might have doubles of, doesn’t care for, or is simply bored with. This is how I acquired an NYX eyeshadow that she got from her Ipsy subscription that I’m looking forward to trying. Take a look at Fireball:

^^^ Lol AYYY. And as always I have no rights to this song or video!

^^^ The first heart is the eyeshadow dry and the second one is when it’s wet, which is how I prefer wearing my shadows.

I was a bit worried when this NYX eyeshadow came into my possession, because with a name like Fireball, you’d expect for the color to be fairly red. And the color does look it in its container. But, upon applying it to the back of my hand, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the color was a far cry from the Fireball red that I was expecting. Rather, it looked more like a rusty bronze – which I LOVE.

Fifty shades of bronze/gold is my preferred eye makeup color. I love how it looks with my skin, eyes, and hair and I feel like it’s a shade that looks good on everyone. When this NYX shade is dry, it has more of that orange-y bronze look to it. But while wet, it gives a gorgeous, metallic, rose gold aura and I live for it. It takes me a minute to warm up to trying a new shade of makeup – at twenty-three, I’m just now growing comfortable with experimenting more while painting my face. But, when the time is right, I’m totally hyped for this NYX eyeshadow to make its debut!

So there you have it, my NYX Fireball Eyeshadow Swatches! What is your preferred makeup brand? What is your favorite color of eyeshadow to wear? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

I Have Returned!!

I Have Returned!!

Hellooooo everyone and happy Friday! After a two day MIA hiatus, I have returned to deliver the latest and greatest! Honestly nothing too exciting has happened, I’ve just been busy with school and being a bad ass…the usual. 😉 I had a beautiful wasteypants night yesterday with my sister and a lovely group of friends. It was wine night at a nearby restaurant so we all indulged, and I threw back a bottle of white wine to get white girl wasted like NOBODY’S BUSINESS! It’s a very exciting thing to not get carded while ordering booze, let me tell you! Here’s a few pics of the festivities:

sisterrrrrwahhh

^^^ Bar lighting sucks! My bedroom lighting is better though! (Obviously, because I look pale and flaming red, not grainy and beige!)

I’m shockingly not hungover, I’m just really tired. After the wine night outing, I had the pleasure of reuniting with someone very dear to me before he moves forever away to Florida, so it was an all around fantastic night. It’s a bummer how much I’m going to miss him but maybe our paths will cross again eventually. Fingers fucking crossed. I also have a case of the sleepies because we have some renovations going on at casa de la Lil Red. We’re getting our entrance way and hallway painted, and unfortunately the repairman has been coming in bright and early these past few days which means no sleeping in for me. I would be furious if it wasn’t looking so fabulous, so prepare for some before and after pics soon! Ya know, yesterday was great in general actually. School in the morning was stupid, but after that I got to spend the afternoon having girl time with my sissy. I met her up at the nail salon after class while she got a pedicure, and I got to soak my feet and enjoy the massage chair while Kristen got pampered. The massage chair had a “Buttock” setting on it, so it was definitely a treat getting a butt massage! My beloved nail tech Vinny also gave my talons a little bit of loving even though I just got them filled a week ago, so that was super sweet too. After Kristen got the princess pedicure treatment we went to Target to get some shopping done. We originally went so Kristen could find a new dresser for her room, but we ended up leaving with a shirt for her, a floor length kimono vest for me, hair dye, and mascara. The essentials. I’m pretty obsessed with my new flowing kimono vest! Kristen actually talked me into buying it, and I’m so glad she did! Here she is:

So cute! I got this little beauty for $24.99 and if you like it, it should be available in stores and online for purchase! (www.target.com) For my evening outing I threw this on over a pretty simple David Bowie crop top and black short combo to spruce things up. (Fun fact for ya: I got my D-Bo crop at a Goodwill in Cleveland over six years ago and I still love it! Such a great find!) To finish off the out and about look I put on my go to pair of black lace up Vera Wang wedges and I was off! Annnd now I must be off….to take a nap!

I hope all of you guys are having a fabulous Friday! What are you all up to this weekend? Any fun plans? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

New Year’s Celebration!

Hello one and all and Happy New Year!!!!! Whatuppppp 2015! I had a hell of a time bringing in the new year with my sister Kristen, her boyfriend Ramon, and a great group of friends. Best believe that white girl wastedness was a very real thing last night. I thought I’d upload some pictures of my new years fun, while nursing a slight hangover. -_____-

Unfortunately all of the other pics that I have from last night are of me doing a keg stand which is not about to go up on the internet any time soon! I was actually really hyped on that because it was my first time keg standing (Do people say that? They do now.) and I lasted a whole EIGHT SECONDS! Not bad, right? Maybe? I don’t know! Best of all, I had a whole crew of people holding my dress while I was getting my keg stand on…like a real lady! 😉 Either way, it was SO MUCH FUN!!! There’s nothing that I love more than a night of frivolity with a bunch of my favorite people. I’m so thankful for the wild and safe time that was had last night. I’m especially thankful that my sister, my BFF, my one and only was my New Year’s kiss!!!

sissy

^^^^^ Speaking of my one and only!!!! I made this fun little Pic Stitch sister collage! :)) Love her!!!

I hope all of you guys had a fantastic time bringing in the new year in whatever way you chose to celebrate! If you’re stuck with a hangover like I am, I feel your pain all the way from Akron, Ohio. How did you guys welcome 2015? What were you drinking on? Who was your new year’s kiss? I want to hear all about it, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Laterrrrrrrrr. -Sarah
