If You Want To Live A Happy Life, Tie It To A Goal, Not To People Or Things - Albert Einstein

I am so over my hair guys! I plan to spend this weekend experimenting with roller-sets and bantu knot outs because it's time for a change! I went out and purchased some rollers, lottabody, and a few other odds and ends so hopefully I will have a roller set video up next week. If the video never makes the light of day, it's safe to say that it was an epic fail.

These pics are of me goofing around in Vegas last week. We stopped by this really cool building called the Lou Ruvo Brain Institute, and decided to snap some quick pics. The building has a new age Alice & Wonderland/Dr. Seuss type feel. 


I got the shirt from The Boogie Den, my belt & purse from an Estate Sale, and my skirt from Goodwill. I think the total outfit was about $5 not including my shoes.

Wearing:
Top: Vintage
Belt: Vintage
Purse: Vintage
Skirt: Vintage
Shoes: Tory Burch

  10. Bantu knot outs are the truth. I rocked them for about three months. IMO, they look like a roller set. Do it, Do it. I would love to see how it turns out on hair your length. Great pics.

  13. This building is such a perfect backdrop. I love the photo of you sitting in the "L," you look so great (not that you don't always!). The outfit is great too - I've been really feeling tiny floral prints lately, so obviously your skirt is right in line with my current mindset!

  14. Nicole I happened upon your blog a few days ago and your pictures are stunning. Do you use a tripod to take them yourself or are they taken by a photographer?

  19. LOVE the skirt and bag - so super cute. And I can attest to spending pennies on clothes but investing in amazing shoes. I do it all the time lol. I've nominated you for an award on my blog!

  20. Just popped in to say your hair is the bizness! (yes I know how to spell business, I misspelt it for emphasis) :-)

    I would like to have even half your thickness. It's like I have a head full of baby hairs - my strands are so fine. I doubt there's anyone with strands as microscopic as mine...oh well...at least I have some density.

  21. The building reminds me of something by Frank Gehry.

  22. The building is thankfully bizarre. How innovative! And you hair is as bodacious as ever! Looks great!
