Kim K, Please Go Away

Personal Rant: Is anyone else just so increasingly and abundantly sick of her? I mean, how many times can they play her freaking wedding? I’ve had to avoid E! for weeks in order to miss seeing her all the freaking time. Does she ever have any personal time when the cameras aren’t around (save the 3 hours (estimate) in the morning when she’s being put together). Seriously, what is so pleasant and fantastic about her and her family that the people of America (neigh, the world!) cannot get enough? I’m really not trying to be hateful. I’m just exasperated with seeing her on all of my favorite gossip sites and EVERYWHERE.
Doesn’t this hat just piss you off?

I was inspired by this ever-so-polite post by the fuggirls.

M is for Monogram

While I do have a few preppy tendencies, I wouldn’t consider myself or my style “preppy”. Why then am I tempted (attempting) to monogram everything from beer glasses to bed sheets?

I’ll tell you why, because it’s adorable. Annnnd I might be a little excited about our monogram: PBR.

My Outfit + Go-To Hair

Dress: Vintage, Sweater: BCBG, Pumps: Jessica Simpson, Sunglasses: Forever 21, Earrings: White’s Jewelry

Lately I have been totally into the high bun. It has always intimidated me a bit because I don’t like to rat my hair. But once I figured out how to do it, I can’t stop! It’s so easy and it can prolong a hair wash for 2-3 days! It also turns any outfit from humdrum to posh. The best tutorial I’ve found is from Beth Jones (here). Do you like these outfit posts or are they annoying?

Top Knot Tutorial

Lately I have been really into topknots, buns, chignons (a la @OscarPRGirl below) and have been looking around for relevant instructions. The easiest way I’ve found is to either use a hair piece or place a clip around your pony tail and wrap the hair around that to make it fatter. I still haven’t grasped the whole teasing concept.

I’ve found two helpful instructions for you (and me). From Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere here and below from NWA’s own Anna of TulipLouise and StyleBy.Me.

I’m hoping to add my own eventually!
