YOUTUBE // Boise Music Festival & Hair Talks

Hello everyone and happy first day of July!

So sorry I missed Music Monday this week (I know, I know, for shame...), but I'll make it up to you today with a fresh new track I've discovered. It's Joy William's "Before I Sleep." Its more chill than the tracks I've been picking lately, but still has a nice beat to it. Take a listen and let me know if you like it.

Another update would be what's in the video below. I went to my first music festival over the weekend, AND I dyed my hair! It's a fun shade of purple, magenta, and orange/pink....
 So basically, my ends are the color of a summer sunset.
Yeah, I'm never trying a fun color on my hair again. It's ridiculous.

But the longer I've had it, the more used to it I'm getting. I like it! 

If you haven't already, check out my YouTube channel (HERE) and subscribe! I try to update it weekly with fresh new videos, and you never know what I'll be bringing you. Have you seen my comical Disaster In the Kitchen video? Tell me what you think! 

I'll be sharing more local spots from Idaho here soon, but I've picked up another shift this week, so work's been keeping me busy. Stay tuned!

And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

YOUTUBE // 3 Ways to Rock A Sports Bra

It's summer. It's hot. I'm wearing a sports bra as a top - would you?
Haha, I put together a short little video showing 3 different ways I'd wear a sports bra out. From dressy to casual, I've got you covered. Please give it a view, visit my channel (HERE), and give it a big thumbs up!

Oh, and don't forget to subscribe if you haven't already ;)

Also, are there any types of videos you'd be interested in seeing? What would you like me to make next? Let me know in the comments!

PS: Have you heard about the Eddie Borgo collaboration with Target? You can read more about it here, but just take a peek at a couple of the pieces below. I'm so eager to get my hands on some of these bags and charms!

WISHLIST // Summer Picks from Dressin

Hello everyone!

Ever just plop down at your computer and slowly disintegrate into a pile of wishful dust that just wants to buy everything you see? You start browsing the Forever 21 clearance section and next thing you know, you've clicked over to Nasty Gal and are drooling over $100 shoes.
Oh yeah, that's me everyday. 

Well today I clicked over to check out this site called Dressin.
Not gonna lie, it's cause they reached out to me. However, I'm intrigued by this company and may have the chance to test drive their products for myself. 
Until then, here's my top 4 picks from the site:

Naturally, all the prices are ridiculously cheap. Like, RIDICULOUSLY cheap. Such jaw-dropping prices, I had to include the price of each item above. Now, the question is: "How good is the quality of each piece?"

I'm not expecting top notch stuff, but hey, I'd like a simple piece that'll at least last a good summer's worth of wear. Plus, that sheer romper just looks so gorgeous. I'm all about the shoulerless trend too, so that black flouncy top is a siren call to me! And gah, don't get me started on my obsession with mirrored sunnies

EXPLORE // Yellowstone Day 2

 I previously wrote about an excursion I took to Yellowstone a few weeks ago (read more on Day 1 here), and I'm back to recap Day 2! We spent the night at an affordable but pleasant motel and woke up early to grab breakfast before heading back into the park.

For the second day, we headed the opposite direction and ended up hiking Bunsen Peak. Poor Ruth...I'm the one who pretty much dragged us up the mountain, although I'm about 90% sure she ended up appreciating the achievement at the end. The other 10% probably wants to kill me, but ya know, you live and learn! Haha, at least the views along the way were spectacular. Repeated promises of "We're almost there, I'm sure of it," kept us climbing up the 8,000+ elevation until she finally shook her head and admitted it was closer to just climb to the top than go back.
 Now, the snow ridden photos above deserve some explanation, because this is probably my favorite memory from the trip. The trail had been covered by snow and piles of rocks ready to slide away. However, we nit picked our way to the top, all the while wondering: How the hell are we going to get back? The answer, my friends, is to plop down on your butt and slide down. There was a good sized hill where a mixture of euphoria and panic intermingled as I raced down, losing a touch of control and feeling uncertain as to whether I'd stop or not. I dug my elbows and heels in, however, and was able to come to as graceful a stop as possible under the circumstances.
Lesson learned? Bring snow shoes next time.
 Once we dragged our sweaty bodies back to the parked car, we slumped into our seats and drove the rest of the way to check out Mammoth Springs. Sadly, the springs weren't in full force, and we were met with a less than impressive trickle. Ah well, it was still a fascinating sight!

Our two day trip to Yellowstone was a fun time, and I'm glad we managed to make the drive! Sadly, since then, Ruth has moved and I already miss having a fellow adventurous soul to go exploring with. However, I'm planning on visiting her at the end of summer (which I'll definitely create an "Explore" post for if it happens), and until then, there's plenty more to discover on my own!

What did you think of this post? Have you been to Yellowstone?
