Rebecca Minkoff HEARTS mark. Release Party!

Livingaftermidnite - Rebecca Minkoff HEARTS mark. Delight Bag Release Party
AHHH this just happened (well a week ago it happened). When mark. invited me to their super exclusive Rebecca Minkoff mark. Delight Bag Launch in the Mondrian Soho I nearly died.

She was one of the most genuinely nice people I've ever met & I loved hearing her story of how she made it as a designer, branded herself & got where she is today! She is a true self made entrepreneur. She really inspired me and is a true testament that if you put your heart into what you are doing that the sky is the limit!

Check out below some of my favorite words of wisdom Rebecca shared during her interview.

Insta-Vegas

OMG what a whirlwind of days...I seriously feel like I haven't sat down in a week.
& of course that translates into my blog being neglected!!! I pretty much gave you a run down of my busy schedule last Monday and now looking back I literally can't believe everything I got to do in just a few short days!!!

This (and probably next) week will be filled with posts that I've been dying to share with you & even a pretty sweet giveaway!!!! But for now here's a few fun pics of my mark.Vegas trip via Instagram (jackiegiardina)

New Season, New Hair

Picnik collage
It was definitely time for a change...while everyone is going lighter for the warmer months I went darker!

I've been super blonde for about 5 years now & it was getting boring, washing me out & honestly I was just tired of having to dye my roots so often. Coming from the girl who's hair has been every color of the rainbow the fact that its been one color for so long is crazy. So going slightly darker was an easy decision (it doesn't hurt that one of my best friends is a hair dresser). I love the ombre effect with a lighter ends than roots, might even go just a tad darker at the roots (similar to my eyebrows).

So what do you think!!! I'm pretty obsessed with it!!! 
& before you ask...I have ZERO clue what my natural color actually is...I've been dying my hair since I was in sixth grade. The last I remember is a strawberry blonde/dirty blonde color, but who knows!
