i posted these pics on my instagram, [aligenny], and thought they were so cute so i decided to do a little blog post on it. 

i believe it was last spring that Chanel came out with a packet of temporary tattoos featuring chains, charms, and little swallows- SO cute. but for $50 something dollars... i passed. THEN, over a year later, while perusing the nail aisle in my local drugstore, i spotted these little babies and my mind immediately went back to the Chanel tattoos, and i thought, DUPES!


the kiss tattoos come with two sheets of temporary tattoos and two sheets of stickers- this is my only complaint. i would have preferred to have all tattoos and no stickers. i did make a super cute ring and bracelet combo, and i also placed a big crown charm on the side of my neck!

Blondie... and alotta makeup!

just a few late night mirror shots documenting my transformation to blondeness...

my hair has never been anything but dark brown- a few months ago i decided i wanted a change. i did research and put a lot of thought into this, as well as talking to my amazing stylist, Ashley. the hair color i have in these pics is after 2 full foils.

my third color process is coming up this week, and after that, i will be doing an in-depth post with before, during, and after pics of my journey from almost-black to super-blonde!
