Outfit of the Day

I love showing off my outfits and yesterday I wore this to a doctor’s appointment. I donned my rocking dark blue jeans cuffed, a black and white frill and puffy sleeve blouse, my famous six inch heels, red hoops, and a new hair flower that I had just received. The flower is my favorite part of this look, especially with a victory roll pony tail hair do.

The flower is a beautiful white lily with yellow and green stems, black leaves, and the best part, black spiders. Even with the spiders, because of the colors and design of the lily, the flower clip doesn’t look super gothic or spooky which is nice because it can be versatile with a variety of outfits and looks.

Hope you enjoy these couple pictures of my outfit of the day and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!





My Evening Outfit on Date Night

Two evenings ago my husband I had our date night. That included seeing the brand new “Stars Wars, the last Jedi,” which we loved. After the movie we went to one of our favorite sushi restaurants, “Ra.” It was a lot of fun and my husband wanted to take photos of my date outfit. I wore a black tank top with a lace heart on the back, new silver trousers, my 7 inch black sparkly heels, my fabulous tailored Calvin Klein blazer, and my sparkly rhinestone neck scarf that my husband bought years ago on the first vacation we ever went to which was New York City. I also donned my silver flower clip in my hair. It was a fun evening and I’m so grateful my husband helps and supports me when I need him too and that we get to work together a lot.



  • Hope you enjoy this date night look of mine and if you have any questions about the outfit or where I got things, leave it in a comment below. Thank you.

Look of the Day



   I decided to do this post because my look today wasn’t rockabilly or pinup. It was more of a retro, blue-eyed shadow, 60’s look, especially with my half up, half down bouffant. I experimented with this look in the morning and was very impressed with it. Here are the pictures I took today with my 60’s retro and vintage look. Hope you enjoy!

Here’s a list of the brands and colors I use.


EYE-SHADOW: Sugarpill Eyeshadow: “Tako White.” in the inner and out of cover of the eye and also underneath brow bone.

Urban Decay, Disney, ” Alice Through the Looking Glass” special edition palette: Blue eyeshadow, “Metamorphosis.” applied on the lid.

Disney, ” Alice Through the Looking Glass” special edition palette: Matte Brown eyeshadow “Chessboard” applied in crease.

LIPSTICK:  Urban Decay, cream color in “Twitch.”

EYELINER: The same as always. I always use my pinup winged liner in “Schwing,” by   “The Balm.



Back to my Bettie Bangs


I grew up having some style of bangs until I was a senior in high school where I  let them grow out. Throughout the years later I’ve been off and on with having different bang styles, from long side swept bangs, to having a vamp widow’s peak, to fringe bangs but having “Bettie Bangs,” is my favorite style. Besides the obvious vintage and pinup look reason, I also love have Bettie bangs because of the way they look on me, how they frame my face, and how they lay beautifully. Not everyone can pull off having short baby bangs so I’m very happy that I can. The lovely and talented Lizzie Sandeman from Carlton Salon in Mission Viejo did an amazing job on my hair. A huge “Thank you!,” and hug to sweet Lizzie! You can check her out on her instagram under @lizziesandeman and under @carltonhairmv

With that said, there are definitely some pros and cons to having bangs;


Cons- If you get tired of your bangs, you have to wait for them to grow out. You also have to go through that awkward “growing out,” phase if you’re wanting to get rid of them. You’ll definitely go through the stage where you can’t do much with them except let them get to a length where you can push them to the side or pin them.

The last main Con is that if your hair grows fast like mine, you’ll have to trim them frequently. If you can do it yourself, there’s no real issue. If you have to get them cut professionally, the cost can add up depending how often you need them trimmed.


Pros- With bangs, any style you do automatically looks vintage and cute. They look great with having your hair down or in an updo.

Your hair can still look polished even if it’s a mess as long as your bangs are looking good.

You can also do most pinup/vintage looks with bangs. You just have to sometimes modify them. For example, you can do your victory rolls, but they can’t incorporate short bangs and you  just have to start the rolls a little more back than if you didn’t have bangs and did your rolls on the very front of your head.

The biggest Pro is that they look absolutely fabulous!





How to Make Your Blow-Out Last Longer


I absolutely love getting professional blow outs and always want to make them last as long as possible. Even when I do my own blow outs, I like to keep them looking fabulous as much as I can for as many days as I can. If you are like me, here are some ways to maintain you do’.

1. When you first get your hair styled and blown out, whether you do it yourself or get it done by a hair stylist, don’t weigh your hair down with a ton of products like a lot of hair spray, pomade, or styling wax. Use as little product as you can so your hair doesn’t feel weighed down or greasy right away. 

  For me, when I first get my blow-out or blow dry my own hair, I only use a thermal spray or cream to protect my hair from the heat. Then I’ll use a dime size amount of shine serum at the very end to keep my hair looking shiny and healthy.

2. Don’t wash your hair everyday. My hair isn’t oily so I don’t need to wash my hair every day but even if your hair is more on the oily side, you can buy dry shampoo in either the color of your hair or a clear dry shampoo and spray a little at your roots which will soak up an excess oil. A little bit of baby powder sprinkled at your roots will work the same as the dry shampoo but if your hair is dark like mine, you might look like you have dandruff so I would recommend getting dry shampoo instead.

   A great one is, Batiste Dry Shampoo but there are a lot of different ones on the market.

3. If your blow out starts to fall limp after a day or two and want to get your volume back, there is a great product you can use to give your do’ back it’s fabulous volume without a bunch of teasing and hairspray. It’s called Thickening, “Dryspun Finish,” and it’s by Bumble and Bumble and it’s a dry spray that creates and helps instant fullness and gives your hair a great airy texture. My friend Krystal who does my hair a lot told me about this product and I love using it. All you have to do is hold the spray about 10 inches away and spray even strokes where you want the airy texture or some lift.


The other way to use this awesome product which I mainly use it for is for when blow out loses some volume, I spray at the roots then ruffle them with my fingers. I have instant volume after I do that. You don’t have to use a lot of this spray which is good and won’t way down your hair.

 4. Another great tip to keep your hair style help up, especially if you have waves or curls is to take a silk or nylon scarf and tie it gently around your head before you head out for the evening and/or definitely before you go to sleep.


5. Last great way to make your beautiful blow outs last long is to not do any heavy styling until the 2nd or 3rd day you’ve had your hair washed and blown out. This can vary because of the type hair you have, thick or thin, oily or dry, etc., but if you’re hair is freshly washed and dried, any fun looks you want to do won’t work or stay as well as if you do a fun look on the 3rd or 4th day when you’re hair produces more natural oils.

For example, you all know I’m a pinup model and love doing my victory rolls, bumper bangs, and more but I don’t do those type of hair looks until at least the 3rd day of my blown out hair. It’s easier for me to get my desired hair look.

Depending on the time of year or the weather, my hair can get a bit dry so if attempt to do a vintage style on the 1st or 2nd day, I’ll have to use a lot more product and heat instruments on my hair which can cause damage and leave your hair feeling icky. Plus it’s more time consuming but those styles can be hard to do on freshly clean hair.


Hope these tips help to keep your locks lustrous for as long as possible!
