"I've changed my hairstyle so many times now, I don't know what I look like"

I have been loving this Talking Heads song, and that lyric is just too perfect! 

Especially because I cut off all my hair!
As inspired by Selena from Vintage Bombshell on YouTube
& Frankie from the Saturdays {pictured below via google search}

I was definitely time!
A huge thank you to my hairstylist Erin from Chapel Hill Hair Cuttery!
 She really is the best!

I love it!
So fresh and so clean!

My benefits to short hair: 
- You don't need a bun while you are sleeping {so uncomfortable}
- Not as hot and sticky
- Less shampoo and conditioner needed
- Decrease brush and dry time
- Decrease styling time
- Decrease styling products needed
- Looks better when not "clean"
- No dread locks when wearing scarfs in the fall

The list can go on and on!

What I Wore: glasses- c/o Coastal, lips- J.Cat Beauty Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain in "Blow Your Mind" via Ipsy, earrings- Rehabbed Handmade on Etsy, top- Talbots {outlet}, shorts- Antropologie, flats- ModCloth, bag- Rebecca Minkoff

While I was in town, I decided to check out Birravino in Red Bank, NJ with my mom
& get it crossed off the Beer Bucket List.

I say "get it crossed off" because no one was excited to come with me here,
we used to come to this restaurant when it was Basil T's and it was much better.
Better pizza, better experience.

I do love the rustic decor of this place

They were out of the saison, which was disappointing since that is the one I wanted to try the most,
Between me and my mom we tried all of them, none of them were really amazing or standout,
but they were good

Like said, the pizza used to be much better,
I just don't like extra cheese added to a margarita, I would add it myself at the table if I liked my pizza like that...
