This past weekend we got to celebrate the marriage of our friends at the beautiful Ragged Mountain Resort! I had the privilege of doing the wedding party’s hair and the gorgeous bride was a show stopper! It was awesome to be part of such a special day and we had a blast! I mixed up my regular mani by adding a swipe of hot pink to every other nail to give it a little something. I used O.P.I Infinite Shine in To The Finish Lime and Running with the In-finite Crowd  (Currently buy 2 get 1 Free at Ulta)! I got so many compliments on my BEACHROW kaftan…it is my favorite dress I’ve ever worn to a wedding! It kept me nice and cool and hid the amount of beer I drank and yummy food I ate 😉 I’ll definitely wear this one all summer long! Congrats again to Marissa and Colin, warmest of wishes on your happy journey together!!

It’s different for girls when their hearts get broke, They can’t tape it back together with a whiskey and Coke

I LOVE concerts and I just had my first of the summer. I saw Dierks Bentley with my mom, aunt and cousin, which made it extra special! There was a huge downpour before the show, but it left us with a beautiful double rainbow! I wore my Frye engineer boots, thank goodness, because the ground was a little damp. I found my cute choker on Etsy and I got this cute bell sleeve, lace-up, t-shirt from American Eagle. I’m sure your tired of seeing my Ray-Ban Flash Lenses but I just love em’ so much! I’m a bit of a dork and have to buy a koozie from every concert and this time I also HAD to have the “Drunk on a Plane” snapback (clearly this was after a Bud Light or two haha)!! Do you all have any concerts this summer?!

I just got back from visiting my sister in TN and I can’t express how much I love the city of Nashville! It was so good to see Brooke again, and I got to bring my girlfriend Tori along to boot! The sunshine felt absolutely amazing, and it was so nice to throw a dress and denim jacket on to go shopping on 12South. This post’s song inspo wasn’t hard to come up with because we saw Thomas Rhett two times during our visit! It’s such a cool city because you never know what celebrity you’ll see out to eat or shopping on any old day! Speaking of eating… the food in this city is the best.  You have to visit Burger Up on 12South and get the friend pickles. Taco Mamacita in Edgehill is home of my favorite meal. Seriously, we had it twice haha! I always get a  margarita (two of them), appetizer sampler (queso is the bomb), General Homeboy Tacos with Mexican street corn…I promise you this is what dreams are made of! Any other Nashville lovers out there?

We’ve come this far, don’t you be scared now ‘Cause you can learn to fly on the way down

Happy Mother’s Day!!!

I’m so excited to watch my favorite Mother of Dragons, Daenerys, tonight on Game of Thrones! Pat and I are obsessed with show and I am such a complete GOT nerd that I had to have this pink Mother of Dragons sweatshirt I found on Etsy. I am so obsessed with Etsy, I can always find the coolest custom t’s and tanks that you can’t get in your average store! Another thing I am also obsessed with is my Fitbit. For a Mother’s Day gift we got our mum a Fitbit Alta and are so excited to challenge each other! I love the look of the Alta because it’s a bit more sleek and fashionable. You can even get gold/silver/leather straps that are stylish for everyday or even going out! It’s so cool to see how much you actually walk in a day and how much quality sleep you are getting. Anyone else on this Fitbit train?! Well I hope you all had a Happy Mother’s Day!IMG_8216

 

To my beautiful Mumma- I love you so very much! Thank you for showing me how hard work and kindness can take you far!  B and I are so grateful to have you as our mother and we only hope we can be at least half the mother you are to our children someday! Love you boo- Whitty

How cute are these Rayburn Eco sunnies from Proof Eyewear?! What’s even cooler is they are made of wood, sustainable, waterproof and a portion of the purchase benefits various causes to help others. You can’t beat being cool and kind! Hope you all have an amazing weekend!!

Its festival time again and of course I am far far away from a desert filled with scantily clad super models wearing rompers. So… I am jealous BUT when you pair a cute cactus tank and layer Mod Ammo necklaces, you too can feel festival ready! I am seriously obsessed with Mod Ammo. What is not to love about recycled bullets with turquoise and quartz?!

Crimped.

 

 

IMG_8068I have an obsession with my Bed Head Little Tease Crimper. Let me tell ya why!

  1. It’s a great way to get a funky bohemian texture without the everyday beach wave.
  2. If you have fine hair it can instantly give you volume.
  3. It’s a great base for updos and braids.
  4. It’s an awesome anchor for you clip-in hair extensions.
  5. It’s like your mom’s crimper is back and ready to party!

For a half up Coachella, look I crimped my hair and braided the front sections. Then I gently pull the braids apart to make them a little thicker. Finally, you just tie the two braids in a knot and tuck the ends in!

For a mohawk vibe, take your crimped locks and put them into three ponytails. You can totally leave them like this for a hawk-style pony or put them in three messy buns for a mohawk updo! Super Easy and a little edgy. Check out below!

Anyone else diggin crimper right now?!

Hair Tutorial: Cowtail Braid

Warning: I’m a complete dork and can think of many puns for this post, but for your sake, I’ll allow myself two! MOOOVE over fishtail, pigtail, ponytail there is a new tail in town…the cowtail! I’ve got beef with the hair industry (2 puns and done) because cowtails have not been repped. Believe it or not, one summer I worked on a dairy farm for a couple of weeks and I have been in love with cows ever since! I am a lover of “next day hair” and dry shampoo. What’s not to love?! That’s how I started what I’m calling the cowtail braid. As usual I slept with my hair in a loose braid and woke up in a hurry so I did a braid but I stopped braiding about a quarter of the way down. Leaving the ends messy and wavy gave it a bohemian vibe and I realized it reminded me of a cow’s tail! I added a dutch braid with the tutorial to give it a little something extra! So here it is friends and I hope you love it! If you do love it or try any of my tutorials please #GoldiesArrow and #cowtailbraid 🙂 Thanks for following, I appreciate it! Stay Golden!

You never felt this way. Ya you never fall this far. You never believed in love at first sight until tonight when I walked in this bar.

Happy Weekend!! A few weeks back I mentioned that my song inspiration for a post was Light of Day from Aubrie Sellers and that I couldn’t get enough of that track… WELL I bought the album New City Blues and have been obsessed with it. It’s country with some serious edge to it, garage country! I love crankin it in the car and its perfect to pregame a girls night out! Last night Pat and I had a date night and went to 3S Artspace in Portsmouth to see The Felice Brothers w/ Aubrie Sellers. I honestly had no clue who the Felice Brothers were, sorry to any fans of their fans, but I had to see Aubrie Sellers performing so close to home! She put on such a great show and I even had the opportunity to chat with her! Not only does she sound amazing live, but she’s absolutely beautiful and equally as kind. I am so pumped about last night!! Make sure to check her out if she’s in your area, tour dates are here. Hope  your weekend is amazing and you have a Happy Easter tomorrow 🙂

Hair Tutorial: Crown Braid

Hey frands! Thought I would do a quick tutorial of the crown braid I was wearing at the flea market! All you need is  some bobby pins (these are my fave because there are so many, and like socks, my bobby pins are always missing haha and they are great for holding updos), clear elastics and some texturizing spray I like Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray $44 or Redken’s Windblown 05 $19. It’s the perfect style for next day hair and you’ll be sure to get compliments!!
