Remember a week ago when my hair magically turned darker? Well, thank you Clairol! You guys followed me through my Instagram account as I took a little jaunt from Vancouver to Toronto for less than 48 hours… yep, LESS THAN 48 hours. It was exhausting but well worth it.
A major thank you to Clairol and Hair On The Avenue for having me pop by to shift a shade and go darker. Do you remember my hair before I went a little more blonde? That was my natural color. Although I only had my blonde for less than a year it was definitely enough time and I was ready to go back to my darker roots (Ayo! I can’t deny a good pun.)
This shade is a little more lighter and on the chocolatey side of my natural color but it’s a definite keeper.
I sat in the chair with Luis Pacheco of Hair On The Avenue and off we went! Luis used 4/120 Natural Dark Brown and the whole process was about 30 minutes. Thank you to Photographer Peter Tamlin for documenting my time in the chair(s).
I had a wicked team on board for this transformation! The whole look couldn’t have been done without them. Thank you to Luis Pacheco for my hair color, Jan for the styling and Robert Weir for my makeup with CoverGirl (post to come.)
So, what do ya think? I love it! Do you also use Nice ‘n Easy by Clairol? Let me know in the comment section below.

This fall I’ve been experimenting with my outfits a little bit more than usual. I don’t think you’ve ever seen me in a midi-length skirt before… actually, I don’t think I have either! I’ve been seeing a few girls around the city in a pleated leather skirt and have played with the idea of styling one myself. The minute I saw this one I knew it was my chance to try it out. I gotta say, I’m kinda hooked. Besides this outfit I’ve paired it with a basic black tee and converse as well as flat boots and a leather jacket.
This outfit was super easy to style with the chunky knit – it can easily be worn for most of your day and be appropriate for whatever you have going on.
