This deficiency usually goes unnoticed but even a slight change in the body’s vitamin levels can effect the growth of hair. Vitamins important for hair growth include vitamin A, B, C and D. Other important nutrients include niacin, biotin and zinc.

Stress is a very important factor that effect s hair growth. Increased emotional stress causes release of large amount of oil from the glands of the scalp. Loss of moisture makes the growth process slower. Stress also leads to less oxygen intake which may lead to death of scalp cells.

How To: Makeup Organization

To say that my makeup drawer is messy would be an understatement. It looks like a hurricane went through there. I had a really hard time finding things and it was taking way too long locate anything. I finally reached my breaking point and chose to organize it. I got this clear container from Target and reused an empty old box for dividers. The lid is perfect for storing eye shadows and eye liners while the deeper half of the box works great for bulkier products like foundation, blush, and bronzers. The result speaks for itself, like night and day! 

My Winter Closet Sneak Peek


Leopard jacket and Orange Jacket-French Connection, Scarf-Gifted

With winter quickly approaching, I decided to go through my closet and pick out some of my essential pieces to wear this season. Being from San Francisco, we pretty much experience the cool temperatures year around so it is no surprise that most of my closet is made up of coats and light jackets (perfect for layering). I have been seeing a lot of jewel tones in magazines and was pleased to see that I already have a few items that fit the trend. One of my absolute favorites is my blue scarf. I wear it all the time for its versatility and for the colorful impact it gives to any outfit. Seeing my things laid out actually makes me a little bit excited for the fog.

Skirt-Forever 21, Top & Ring-Bananna Republic, Shoes-BCBG, Headband-JCrew, Clutch-Ambiance

Ok, so this is officially my first outfit post. Posing for the camera was a little awkward but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it over time. I must have taken over fifty pictures (most of which I immediately deleted). It is not as easy as it seems. I only hope that one day I can have images as amazing as those taken by some of my favorite bloggers (Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere, Jessica from What I Wore, and Kelly from the Glamourai). In fact the only easy part to this process was picking out the outfit. I’ve been looking for a striped skirt for a while and finally found this one at Forever 21. Bright colors make me happy so I decided to incorporate them into the rest of the outfit being that the skirt was black and white. I can’t wait to wear the skirt again in the spring with a denim jacket, fedora and cute strappy sandals.

Love Want Need: Burgundy Bag

I have really been wanting a burgundy bag like this ever since I saw this ad by Louis Vuitton a while back. The color is perfect for fall and goes with just about anything. It’s a nice alternative to a neutral black or beige. I’m really drawn to the classic lines and structured look of it. I love keeping it simple and classic and by doing so know that any one of these could last me for many fall seasons to come.

I love sequins. I love them even more when I find them on a cute clutch. An evening bag is an essential accessory during the holiday season and a clutch is my favorite way to go. They dress up any outfit and can make a statement on their own. With fun patterns, great colors, and pretty details these six are a few I’d love to get my hands on.

Weekend Purchases

This past weekend was so much fun. I spent it in Palm Springs with my boyfriend and we enjoyed spending time away from the rush of daily life. We pretty much played everything by ear and it’s starting to become a favorite destination (you can see our last visit here). We definitely wanted to relax and enjoyed a day of pampering at The Spring day spa. I highly recommend spending an afternoon there if you are planning a trip to Palm Springs any time soon. A soak in the mineral hot springs and a massage worked wonders. I also knew I wanted to do a little shopping. We made a stop at a few shops and I picked up some amazing deals. Take a look at these stylish finds that made it home with me…
