OOTD: Stars (Heidi Klum) & Stripes

Nope...this isn't a super late 4th of July post.

Last weekend I went into NYC with some friends & we saw a bunch of paparazzi staked out in front of a little cafe called 'Bar Pitti' in the Greenwich Village section of NYC. One nice paparazzo told us Heidi Klum was in there. She was purposely seated in a blind spot behind where my red arrow below is pointing so the paparazzi couldn't get shots of her.

When she got up to leave a zoomed in as much as I could to get a shot of her signing an autograph.

We headed down to a little cafe called Vinyl for some lunch & mimosas. Super cute beachy decorations everywhere along with a bathroom dedicated with a huge mosaic tile of Justin Timberlake haha.

Made our way to Central Park to hang out and catch up on life.

Dinner & drinks after we made our way back into NJ.

I like big BUNS & I can not lie...

My new weapon of choice for a quick summer hair bun...

Spin Pins

Or if I want to wake up with some loose beachy waves as seen below...

I let my hair slightly air-dry, then I spray some Bumble & Bumble Styling spray...(works wonders for my thin, fine/limp hair)

Along with my FAV Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray...<3

And I use my trusty Goody Spin Pins to put it up in a slightly loose bun & wake up in the morning, let my hair down anddd Voila, beachy waves! 

(If I want more curl I just wrap a few pieces around my Hot Tools 1.5 curling iron)

Before I discovered these I used a bobby pin so after awhile the style would start coming apart...(cute for the weekends) but not for a polished office hair bun.

Give them a try and let me know what you think!
