Fawn Barbie

Dream Angel

idk if you know this about me, but I love Barbie…a lot (not like in a ‘I buy Barbie dolls as an adult’ sort of way, but more in a ‘I love the girly aesthetic of Barbie’ sort of way). That being said, I do not often buy clothes from Barbie collaborations, usually because there is something a little off about the pieces. Occasionally, I do find something that I love enough to buy like this kid’s jacket from Target. While I think that it is cute on its own, I couldn’t help but feel like it needed a little fawn print or something. I decided the best way to add it would be to make a detachable fawn fur collar…the only problem being that I have never made a detachable collar. I looked for a tutorial online and after watching a bunch of youtube videos, I finally found one on a blog that was super easy to follow. I really love the way it turned out! Here are some pics :

Keegan Allen at Erewhon

Dreamline Alliance

Hello :) Slow Magic and I just got back from a productive week in LA (productive for SM, I kind of just walked around and listened to music) and I wanted to post a still life that I took that kind of sums up our time there. The only object I want to explain is the Erewhon receipt (for those of you who have never been, Erewhon is a healthy grocery store…kind of like Whole Foods on crack…where you can somehow spend all of your money on like three things), the reason I included it isn’t just because we went there probably 5/7 days but more because we saw Keegan Allen (Toby from Pretty Little Liars) there, which was kind of a highlight of our time.

Moving on…now we are back home focusing on getting ready to go on tour, which is honestly always so stressful. Also, I haven’t been feeling so inspired lately and that is so frustrating… I need advice, what do you do when you are feeling uninspired?

Davines Hair Masks

Dreamline Alliance

When Slow Magic and I first got engaged and were starting the process of planning our wedding, I decided to get serious about trying to grow my hair longer (and it did grow longer and it continues to, for me this is so exciting!). After researching the best ways to go about this, I realized for this to happen, I needed to have a healthy scalp and I needed to stop all of the breakage that was happening from dying my hair blonde and the constant blowouts. SO, I ordered a silk pillow case, vowed to only blowout my hair if absolutely necessary, focused on having a healthy scalp, stopped using shampoos with sodium laurel sulfate, and decided to make sure my ends were always moisturized.

…which brings me to hair masks…I have always liked and used hair masks but I started getting serious about them when I started growing out my hair. Nowadays, I am wearing a hair mask about 40% of the time….I love them. Is that maybe too much time to be wearing a hair mask? Whose to say. The point is, I have found my favorite line of hair masks : The Circle Chronicles by Davines. I have been using different ones from this line for about three months now and I am obsessed! Here are my favorite ones (the ones that I am constantly ordering off of amazon) :

The Renaissance Circle

The one I use the most is The Renaissance Circle, it is a repairing hair mask and I just apply it to washed and towel dried hair, comb it through and then put my hair into a top knot while I am at the gym or literally just all day. After, when I rinse my hair at night, my hair is so soft and it smells amazing (Slow Magic comments every time about how nice my hair smells).

Dreamline Alliance

The Purity Circle

My other favorite, if I had to choose, would be The Purity Circle mask, which I am wearing as I write this (we are in LA right now…and I cannot think of a more appropriate time for an anti-pollution mask lol). I apply the mask to my scalp before I shampoo my hair (while it is still dry) or, right after I shampoo my hair. It is a purifying and anti-pollution mask that makes my hair feel so so soft and clean.

The Spotlight Circle

The Spotlight Circle is what I use for true angel hair. It not only deeply nourishes your hair, it makes it so incredibly shiny…it is like highlighter for your hair. Idk what it is, but the product itself has a shimmer to it and every time I use it, I get so happy just looking at it (it’s the little things lol)

Valentine's Day Decorations

Dreamline Alliance

Even though I have mixed feelings when it comes to Valentine’s Day (something feels weird about a holiday that is only for people who are in relationships), I do love Valentine’s Day decorations 💕 I decided that I would set up our table a few days early so I could take a few pictures. Here is what I did :

Wall Decor

I made a heart shaped wreath out of two garlands that I bought at Jo-Anns. I bent them into a heart shape and the secured them at a few different points with pink ribbon. I also added a piece of pink ribbon at the top so I could easily hang it. On top of the wreath, I placed this ‘Love” balloon, which I found at Target.

Table Runner/Centerpiece

I made the table runner out of flannel with pink gingham print that I found in the nursery section of Jo-Anns. For flowers I just used some pink roses that I picked up at Trader Joes and for candlesticks, I was finally able to use these pink ones that Slow Magic and I picked up while we were in Iceland like two years ago lol.

Table Settings

In addition to simple white ceramic plates that we already had, I bought these salad plates with roses at HomeGoods to make the table feel a little more whimsical and delicate. I used linen napkins, our everyday silverware, and I used crystal glasses. On top of the plates, I added these pink boxes, which I bought at Target, and filled them with homemade chocolates.

We are not the plan ahead type when it comes to things like Valentine’s Day so we do not actually have any plans. How do you guys feel about Valentine’s Day and do you have any plans for it?
