I got ombre and I love it!

I finally got my ombre touched up after last year’s grew out. I scored a pretty good deal on Lifebooker Loot and visited Christina Quillen.

See the results below! I actually like this better than last time (more subtle). What do you think? The entire thing plus 20% tip came to around $135 which is less than I paid before. It may not be Jared Leto, but you know… Pretty close.


P.S. If you haven’t used Lifebooker, use THIS LINK so I’ll get a referral treat!


Pharrell (and Pharrell’s Hat) perform “Happy” at the 2014 Oscars

One of the highlights of last night’s Oscars was Pharrell (+ his Arby’s hat) performing “Happy.” The feel-good number from Despicable Me 2 is my go-to song when I’m feeling emo. How can you NOT feel happy listening to this? Even Meryl Streep couldn’t help shaking it. I see you, Meryl.


Shooting for TV! #Selfie

I was back in the studio today shooting for a cool, upcoming TV special. I can’t tell you just yet what it is (but I totally want to) but let’s just say, it’s full of awesome celebrity stuff.

As a journalist, When you shoot commentary for TV, they either do your hair and makeup on site (which is the best) or touch you up. My makeup artist today was ah-mazing. She did touch ups but totally transformed my look. I love love love the bronze glow she added and the false eyelashes are delicious. The selfie below was taken with no filter. I repeat: No filter! Seriously, I really need professional lighting everywhere I go.



Throwback: My First Rapper Interview Ever!

I’ve been lucky enough to interview some of the biggest names in hip-hop over the years, but I recently stumbled upon my very first rapper interview ever. Back in 2008, I was asked to interview Juelz Santana around his Bad Santa mixtape. As a huugggge Dipset fan I was thrilled. Shout outs to Aqua and All Hip Hop for my very first byline and Juelz, who sang me Christmas carols and called Sarah Palin “a slut” during our phone conversation.

Peep the full interview here!
