The Selfie Social Media Cleanse

Monday, September 29, 2014

I would like to start off this post by saying that I, Laura, am a social media addict. My parents have always loved to tease me about how I'm not able to survive without my phone or social media, and for the first time I saw that they might be right. In honor of the new ABC comedy, Selfie, I was challenged to take a social media cleanse. There were four different categories and I qualified as a "mobile maniac." What that means is that my phone and I are attached to the hip and if I don't have it with me well... Then I get a little anxious. In this blog post I will be telling you about my social media cleanse and also a little bit about Selfie, a show about a young woman who loves social media even more than I do.

Growing Out My Pixie Cut- Month 6

Growing Out My Pixie Cut
We are now 6 months into this "growing out my pixie cut" journey! I can't believe how fast time has gone by and how much my hair has grown. I've never been the most patient person when it comes to growing out hair, in fact I failed countless of times to grow out my bangs over the past few years. I've always gotten tired out the growing out process and cut them back into blunt Zooey Deschanel inspired bangs, but look at me know! My hair has gone from a short pixie cut to a curly bob, and my bangs can cover my eyes when they're curly! Check out what's been happening with my hair in my latest update.

September 2014 Playlist
While I'm not in school anymore, part of me still thinks of September as back to school month. This month I've been listening to a lot of music that I used to listen to in my high school and early college years (aka the MySpace days). Don't you miss the days when you would spend minutes (or sometimes hours) trying to find the *perfect* song for your profile? I know I would spend so much time browsing the music section on MySpace trying to find obscure European bands that many of my high school peers had never heard about. I still love and listen to some of bands and singers I discovered on MySpace like The Bird and the Bee,  Feist, and Nouvelle Vague. This month's playlist is inspired by MySpace and the music discoveries I made during those years.

Face of the Day | Lykke Li Concert

Face of the Day | Lykke Li Concert
Last night I went to see Lykke Li right here in San Diego and I decided to dedicate a little post to what I was wearing. Since Lykke Li is a fan of dark eye makeup I decided to ditch my soft makeup and embrace a smoky eye. I've been such a huge fan of Lykke Li since 2008 when her debut album Youth Novels was released. That was one of those life changing albums that I will always hold close to my heart. You might not know this but I used to run a Lykke Li tumblr fan page a few years ago so I'm not kidding when I say that I'm a huge fan. I'm hoping to recreate a Lykke Li makeup look very soon as a tutorial, but for now here's what I wore for the concert!
