almost another year...

I found this awesome website the other day!

It's pretty cool, you can set goals online, record your progress, talk to others who want to do the same things, find out how people accomplished them, and all sorts of stuff like that! I found all kinds of goals I never would've thought people would have, and was definitely inspired to try some different things, set some goals, make some REAL resolutions for this next year,
this BRAND NEW decade. (Is anybody else slightly intimidated that this it's going to be a new decade?)
What are your new years resolutions my loves?

bam, sham, glam!

Easiest cute hairstyle ever!

Part your hair on the side

From the side with more hair, separate a section

Hold the section along the side of your head

Start braiding the section backwards,
towards the nape of your neck

If you can, pull in bits of hair (not from the section)
to the braid as you go

When the braid reaches your neck, pull the rest of your hair back
and tie it all into a messy bun

You look gorgeous,
and your hair isn't in the way of your adventures!

Sleeping in Style

Can you imagine when you're
on an airplane over the holidays
and you whip this one out for your nap?

Pretty freakin' cool.

P.S. For more ways to be like Holly Golightly, check out this awesome list

On a side note, I'm finally living up to my name as a "gypsy", and going on a pretty big adventure with one of my friends tomorrow. We're going to the Netherlands to stay with one of our friends who moved there! It's my first trip alone out of the country (I went to France, but that was with my school a few years ago), and I'm super excited for everything that's to come. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to share when I get back! (:
One of my friends recently put a quote up on her tumblr that read

"I don't know what I want, but I know I need to see the world"

I think that's so true.

Breathe, Just Breathe

This video is pretty old, but I'm still always inspired by it!

What inspires you?

Glamour Queen

Sequins, frills, one shoulder,
& stacked bracelets
who says you can't have it all?
