Seaside Crew Life + Kaylyn Weir Collaboration

I had the absolute honor this past week to collaborate with Ansley, the owner of the Instagram account @seasidecrewlife. If you don’t know what Seaside is, it’s a small coastal town off of the panhandle of Florida with the cutest pastel colored houses straight out of a beach dream! Ansley fell in love with Seaside as a little girl and grew a strong connection to it over time, thus creating the instagram account inspired by her many memories and trips made there!

Ansley reached out to me and asked me to take over her account for a day, showing what I love to do around this town (I’m only 5 minutes from it!) My amazing friend, Autumn Beury of Hello Miss Lovely photography, took these awesome photos that couldn’t be more ME! for the occasion and we had a blast. So blessed to have these two in my life!

Thank you to Ansley and Autumn for allowing me to express myself through your work and platforms.

Pink Bob Haircut

4

I’ve always loved coloring my hair but I’ve only colored the tips before. The first time was right before New Years Eve 2013 and I dyed the tips pink! The second time I used Garnier’s Color Styler (temporary) and it washed out with a few showers. This time, I went full throttle and had a professional salon dye my whole head! What a TASK!

I am naturally dark headed (the color of my eyebrows!) so Joleen at Hue Salon had to meticulously dye every root and tip of my head. After a ton of foiling (I could barely hold up my head it was so heavy!) I waited for my hair to turn blonde. It took 40 minutes! Here’s the process below:

The blonde hair was pretty cool. If I ever went that light I’d do a platinum. It really brightened up my face!

Next was the dye. I told Joleen I wanted any type of pink besides pastel (I feel like with my skin I would look washed out with pastels??) That took another 30-40 minutes but the end result was AMAZING. I had shown her a picture of Olivia Palermo’s wavy bob and she even curled/styled it for me at the end!

Valentine Chocolate Bark

1

Anytime I’m reminded of a holiday, the first thing that comes to mind is DESSERT! I don’t know why I associate desserts with holidays, but I think the best way to celebrate with family and friends is through food.

Now I’m no cook so I did not create this recipe. I actually found it on Bake at 350 blog! After reading the ingredients, I HAD TO MAKE IT. It’s not only tasty but extra colorful (and y’all know I love color!)

All you’ll need for this recipe is:

  • 2 bags white chocolate chips (I like Ghiradelli)
  • 2 bags bittersweet (or semisweet) chocolate chips (I still like Ghiradelli)
  • 2 cups Rice Krispies
  • conversation hearts or ANY Valentine Candy
  • sprinkles of all shapes and sizes!

Check out the finished product and find the recipe link at the end! I would recommend adding A LOT of rice krispies for extra crunch. I had more white chocolate than rice krispies so next time I make it, i’ll be sure to add the whole box for that extra crunch.
