I am currently crashing from the high of the Katy Perry concert last night. I was seriously on Cloud 9 the whole entire night. Let me just say, I have been in love with Katy since the first time I heard her song play on the radio. I knew the instant I heard her that she wasn’t going to be just a one-hit wonder, she was going to get big and fast! I saw her at Phooson in December 2008 and then two months later for her “Hello Katy” tour at the Marquee in February 2009. Tickets to Phooson were free and tickets at the Marquee were around $40. Crazy right? I didn’t go to her “California Dreams” tour in 2011 because I couldn’t get anyone to go with me and I didn’t want to spend $200+ for tickets. But I totally regret that and should have forced my husband to go with me! I went with Krystal to her “Prismatic World Tour” and we had so much fun! She put on such a good show and had so many different outfit changes and both of her opening acts, Ferras and Tegan and Sara, were amazing! Go check out our Instagram, @thedesertmermaids, for pictures from the night!

So remember how in this post I said I wasn’t really sure about my “Sweet Experience” MAC lipstick? Well consider my mind changed. For some reason I just wasn’t digging the way it looked on me. It clashed with my skin tone and made my lips look dry and was too sheer. But for some reason when I put it on with this post… it just worked! Maybe because I had a primer on underneath and I had on a different colored lipstick earlier that day? I’m not really sure but my opinion is a complete 180 from what it was before! It’s so weird how that happens but I’m glad the girls at the MAC counter convinced me not to return it because it was a limited edition and is now sold out everywhere!

This hat totally makes me feel like Jessica Simpson. You know how they say if you have blonde hair you shouldn’t wear a cream/beige/camel colored hat? Well, I disagree! I think it looks gorgeous together. Yes, darker colors do pop better against lighter colors… but that doesn’t mean if you’re a blonde you can’t sport a beige hat! If it’s good enough for Jessica Simpson it’s good enough for me.

I am totally loving my hair right now. It’s so funny because people ask me, “Is your hair blue?” or “Is your hair grey?” I even was told I had unicorn hair which I’m pretty happy about. Basically it was purple, blue, grey, and platinum blonde somehow and I loved it! Now that the toner has washed out  it isn’t as purple/blue/gray anymore. It’s more of a platinum blonde! My hair has a mind of it’s own apparently! I have to give a shout out to my sister and stylist, Jessica, for working her magic on it!
