Perm is a 4-letter Word

Perms. I know what you’re thinking: Giant bangs, teased out hair, scrunchies on your wrist and Lisa Frank trapper keepers in your lockers. Well there will always be that perm and no one can take that away from it. But I’m here to tell you about the new perm, now referred to as a texture service at a salon near you. I have wanted curly hair for about 10 years but it was a sort of longing that I never dreamed would come true, like being a cat for a day or taking a bath in macaroni and cheese. But look at me now! My dear friend Devan at Bombshell Betty’s gave me a beach wave perm. There are countless things I love about it but here are two: 1. I don’t have to brush it and 2. it’s curly straight out of the shower but it also does marvelous things when prompted with a little help from my curling iron wand!

Okay, I’ll stop gushing about my hair. For now.

Des Moines is in full bloom these days, and I can’t get over these trees! So so so so so pretty! I wore this little yellow lace top under my strapless dress (did you see it has a MUFF for pockets?! sold) because I didn’t think it was quite warm enough for a strapless dress. Turns out I was wrong, but I’m okay with it. Remember these glasses? Yeah, I gave them to Jessi for her birthday but I just couldn’t not own them. I mean, hearts AND mint?!
