barbie magic hairstylist

You know, when I started my blog I had no idea that there was this whole world of friendship and inspiration awaiting me. The reason I began and continue to blog is to document my life. My url is cheesy as heck because who knew that others would actually come to my corner of the internet and keep up with our lives. People have always joked about calling me "Barbie" because of my blonde hair, bubbly personality and obsession with pink. When Eric and I got together it just made sense to call him "Ken" Even our wedding photographer left a note in our wedding book calling us Barbie and Ken :) There was a time when I wore a pink apron at work and the girls at my salon loved to call me "Barbie hairstylist". Well, it just so happens that my favorite computer game when I was a little girl was called "Barbie Magic Hairstylist". So to keep up with the cheesiness, that became my blog email. Once again, who knew that others would actually come to my corner of the internet and want to email me? So now that I've shared some background on the ridiculousness of my blog, we can all laugh at Eric's reaction to this outfit....


I walked (or skipped?) in the room to see Eric's reaction to the perfectly bouncy, pink tulle skirt of mine. As he stared me down I asked him if he liked it?! Of course he told me "yep" (so much enthusiasm). Then I asked him, "well, what do you think?!" With a straight face (because I'm sure he was totally serious), "Barbie. Magic. Hairstylist." Bahahaha! I think I'll take that as a compliment ;)


I am obsessed with this skirt! I thought I was going out on a limb by ordering this skirt from eShakti (as in, I don't have anything like it in my closet and I wasn't sure I'd be able to pull it off) until I showed a friend what I ordered and she rolled her eyes and said it was perfect for me! I guess all things pink, tulle, bows and girly are just "me", ha ha! I must admit that I'm seriously considering ordering this skirt in a couple more colors (I wish I was kidding!) but that's the beauty of eShakti! You can have a one of a kind with the same item because of the altering options! You can literally shape an item specifically to your body!


You really must head over to eShakti and check out their new spring line and see the ways you can turn their dress into your one of a kind! And while you're at it, check out the black skirt I'm dying over. DYING! I think it's screaming my name, don't you? Everyone but Eric can answer that question ;)

Okay so first thing I thought when I saw your outfit was, "I need this." Like seriously. I need it. While reading the post I kept saying in my head, "I've got to ask her where she got it." But then you said where. So I headed on over and saw the $$ for it. You brat. So not in my budget. But you look adorable, and I guess anytime I wish I had your outfit I can just come and obsess over you in it. (by the way, the link to the shirt you wanted to show only took me to their website...it didn't take me to an actual shirt link.)

found you randomly and I'm now following you. I agree you sorta remind me of Barbie but then I take another look and you remind me of a disney princess. I can't figure out if its Cinderella or who?
