Hey guys so my friend Ashley and I came up with a cool little series we are doing once a month. We are calling it Pinspiration. We are taking a photo we like on Pinterest and styling it with outfits we have in our closet to try and recreate the look. Pinterest is the mecca of outfit inspirations. Sometimes you want to recreate the outfit but aren't sure how to do so. Sometimes the outfit is older and you can't find the exact piece. That is ok you can always find cute alternatives to the outfit. For this outfit I grabbed leggings that I had from cotton on that somewhat resembled the leather skinnies the woman is wearing. I had a chambray top, not exact to hers but similar. I had a black blazer that I wanted to put with it but I thought I would show you how to change it up with a batwing cardigan. It's not exact but it translates right :)
Check out Ashleys' page here, to see her outfit details.
Ya I am wearing black again. It is just a comfortable color for me to grab for. Especially these leggings and this top. I love tight and baggy together. It just brings a whole new lever to comfort chic. This outfit has been my errands outfit. Quick to put on and style and go. Of course leggings fit hand in hand with riding boots and a motorcycle jacket. You can never have too many boots, or too many jackets. Of course it is faux leather. I can't do real leather. I am turning into a hippie.
If you live in Utah I hope you survived the storm yesterday. That was fun driving to work! I saw on Facebook it took some of you three hours to drive home as well... Welcome to Utah winters. If you didn't have to drive in that mess your one of the lucky ones. It suppose to so this all week. Ugh what is winter good for?
Lets be honest. I am not a fan of the cold. I hate the cold. I could easily live in 80 degree weather. I don't know why I always talk about the weather, maybe some weird obsession I didn't know I had. Anyway. I enjoy strolls with my hubby. We have an amazing place up in Daybreak called SoDa row that is just the cutest place to take walks. I love my little city. It is sweater weather, so I love me some long cardigans. I wanted to throw some bold color in my day, fall in Utah is gorgeous but sometimes the snow makes things look so ugly. And we have already had a little bit of snow fall. So because the colors are seeping out I want to throw some in my life. These jeans are so flippin comfortable. I have a new found love for Cotton On Jeans. Stay warm!!!
Hey guys I hope you are all having a great week. I am so happy for the Holidays. I feel this year is full of changes and I am excited to be with Family this Christmas. I wish my sister in California could be here. I miss having everyone together. I am super lucky that my family lives across the street from my in-laws. So we never have to pick and choose what family we spend certain Holidays with. It better stay that way! :)

So I went in for my second appointment to European Wax Center. And it gets better each time I go in. It isn't that painful to start with but it gets less and less stingy. My waxing certainly slowed down my hair growth. I noticed my hair grew so much slower. The products they sell also slow down hair growth and prevent ingrown hairs.
How to prevent ingrown hairs:
-Exfoliate!!! It is always important even with shaving to exfoliate. It gets rid of the dead skin so the pores are clear and the new hair can pop through easily.
-Moisturize. Your skin needs moisture! Especially in the dry winter months!
-if you shave, shave with the grain of your hair. It's the way your hair grows the angles they grow in.
-rinse with cold water. It tightens the pores.
- use products with glyclolic or salicylic acid in it. These keep the pores unclogged. Be careful if you use it on your face however the suns reaction can damage the skin. Use it as a night remedy.
What is an ingrown hair?
We all know what they look like and how they feel. They freaking hurt!
An ingrown hair is a hair that doesn't emerge from the follicle but remains in the skin. The hair is to weak to break through the skin.
These are the products I use from EWC. If you go to the draper location, ask for Whitney for your waxing needs. She is the best! Super friendly and completely eases your mind about all things waxing.
