The sun has been shining here in LA but it has gotten “cold,” and I love crisp fall sunshine! Although I guess cold is relative because when I say cold I mean between 50-65F. Since there isn’t much humidity here in LA, when the temperature drops and the wind picks up, it can get rather cold! I am definitely a California girl now, but the other day when it was 65 and everyone else was complaining about how cold it was, I was in short sleeves and was fine! haha!
Work has been no different, if anything I am more stressed, but I am looking forward to the holidays as I am going to take a week and a half off to go visit my parents in Boston! And the boy is coming with finally! 😀
Well, anyway, to combat this cooler weather, I have been wearing lots of sweaters to work; sweaters are nice because in the morning it is cool and in the middle of the day if I am getting lunch on campus sometimes it reaches 70-75 degrees, and then at night time when I am leaving work (it gets dark at like 5 now, so anytime I leave work it is already cold and dark), it is so cold! I found this cute little sweater that I bought from Kaitlyn Clothing, a little boutique store near UCLA. I also just wore a simple white t-shirt with jeans from Zara and heeled boots that I have worn before on the blog! I forgot about these boots and I forgot about how much I love them!
I also got my hair highlighted and cut on halloween – it had been 2 years since I did anything with my hair! I hadn’t even gotten my hair cut! It was super long (longer than my waist), and super thick – the pony tail I would make would feel so heavy! So after talking with Samira, my blogger friend from Stylemesamira.com, I went to her hair stylist and got my hair done! I fell in love with it, even though it is fall my hair is lighter and seems super fun! I got a few colors in my hair to have it all blend and look lighter! At the same time I received my hair extensions from IrresistibleMe.com, and decided to put them in. I had never tried hair extensions before and have always had my eye on them, wanting to try them to make my hair even longer and fuller. I never could qualify buying them when my hair was already long and thick, but it was a great opportunity to try them finally! I have always wanted to dye extensions a different color as well so I could change my hair look without damaging my own hair! I ordered them in the Silky Touch Chocolate Brown, 20 inches, and I received them the day before I cut/dyed my hair! My natural hair was the same exact shade as the extensions, which I was amazed at how well it matched! And my hair was just as long if not longer than the extensions, which shocked me and was when I realized, yes, I need to cut my hair!!! After getting my hair done I added the extensions into my hair (they were clip in), and I curled my hair as I normally would, and I LOVED how the look came out! Since my hair was now a little lighter, when I added the darker extensions it looked like a reverse ombre, where the ends were darker! But it wasn’t too drastic as it matched with the rest of my hair! It looked and felt so natural, you couldn’t tell that it wasn’t my hair! They also added a lot of volume to my hair, which was great since I could have the volume but not feel the heavy weight of my hair always! Before I got it cut, my hair just felt so heavy, so it was a breath of fresh air when I could add them in and take them out at the end of the day!
Take a look at the look below! I fell in love!

The hair extensions came in a pretty box with a complete set, and depending on how much hair you order (100 g, 140 g, or 200 g), you get more clip in pieces! I got the 140 g, and it came with 1 big piece with 4 clips, 3 pieces of 3 clips, 2 pieces of 2 clips, and two pieces of 1 clip. They were more than enough for me, as when I styled them I only put in half of the pieces, since I already have so much hair, but if my hair was shorter and I wanted a longer look, or if I had thinner hair, I would use them all. Overall I was super satisfied with my extensions and so glad I finally tried them! And they are really affordable, the price changes with the length but they are completely worth it! You can also get 20% off your first order just by going to their site!
I loved my accessories – I matched some simple gold pieces to accentuate my plain but chic outfit I wore to work, and I finally wore this necklace I received from Urban-diva.com, which was a great touch! A longer necklace was the perfect touch of chic to accentuate and parallel my new long hair! I loved the comfy stylish look I put together, perfect for a Friday work to night out transition!
