Come see me!

Marciano Dress Month Event

Hello my loves! For those of you lucky enough to live near me…to live in the wonderful state of Arizona, we finally have a chance to meet face to face.

“Duh-WHAT?”, you ask in astonishment?
I am co-hosting a fab shopping event with fellow fashion blogger Ashley, of Golden Divine, in celebration of dress month with Marciano.

“OMG, where?”, you ask?
At the Marciano Scottsdale Fashion Square store, of course.

“Please tell me when! I can not even bare to be in the dark on this any longer.”, you cry out.
I know – I’m excited too. Thankfully we only have to wait until this Wednesday, May 8th. The event takes place from 6-9pm – that’s 3 hours of par-tay time!

So please come and join me in this shop-tastic, dj bumping boom-bastic, drink sipping…(okay running out of words that end in “astic”) evening. You can also partake in a braid bar courtesy of Paul Mitchell and nibbles from The Herb Box. And wait there’s more! M Loyalty members will receive an exclusive gift with any purchase of $125 or more, plus double points on all dress purchases. Whoop-whoop!

You must RSVP by May 6th at Marciano.com/rsvpaz, if you can attend. I really hope you can make it!

Don’t live in Arizona? You can still get in on the action – and most likely stay cool while doing it. (It’s already geting into the 100′s here! So hot!) Enter in the Marciano ‘Dress a Day in May Sweepstakes’ HERE, for your chance to win an amazing dress. Also I’ll be keeping you updated the night of the event on Instagram, Twitter and Vine – so make sure to follow me @oneofeachblog.

Hope to see you all soon!

DIY: ‘One of Each’ Lavender Locks

Lavender Hair - Illustration - Amanda Shoemaker - Oneofeachblog.com

As promised, I’m letting you in on my until-now secret of my pastel purple hair. At what better timing might I add. As the color has faded out of my hair, it’s time for me to pass the torch and the legacy.

Also I thought I would show you guys another side of me. You know, my many ‘One of Each’ sides. Which happens to be illustration. I think I will start adding more to the blog on a regular basis, so I hope you enjoy them. ;)

Now for the details on my hair color. It’s really semi-permanent which I think is great. You can go from color to color that way, once the last color washes out. What’s that you say? You don’t want your lovely new purple hair to wash down the drain? We’ll don’t you fret, I’ve got it under control. Just mix the hair color into your shampoo and conditioner and use it every time you shower, and presto! No fade outs!

STEP 1: Have your hair professionally bleached. Seriously. I did bleach mine myself, but it’s a risky move. After the 4th time of bleaching my regrowth I got a lot of breakage around my face and my part. So really you have to be careful. If I had bleached my whole head the last time, all my hair would have broke off. So that’s that. Go get your damn hair bleached at a salon. Also make sure to pick up a deep conditioning treatment to keep your hair soft and less likely to break. I use Queen Helene Cholesterol Hair Conditioning Cream from Sally’s Beauty Supply.

STEP 2: Prep! Time to make your conditioner concoction. It’s more like a toner, to add some life into the purple. To make your toning conditioner you will need; you Manic Panic semi-permanent hair color in Pretty Flamingo, a color mixing bowl, a color extend conditioner, and an extra bottle to put your new conditioner in.
Start with about half the bottle of conditioner in the mixing bowl. Now honestly you only need the tiniest dot of the Manic Panic. (Which looks like a hot pink-ish red color.) Start with a little dab, and mix. Continue adding more until you get a really nice pastel pink. If you add too much color, just add more of your conditioner. One you have your desired shade, add it into your bottle.

STEP 3: Shower! Wash you hair with a purple shampoo. I use GVP Conditioning Shampoo, which is also from Sally’s. I use a lot of shampoo when I do this step. Make sure to get all of your hair saturated, and let the shampoo sit for about 10 mins. Watch out because it’s messy and will look like you murdered barney in your shower. Also try not to lather it too much in the beginning. Wait at least 5 mins before you lather. After the full 10 mins, rinse with cool water and repeat if necessary.

STEP 4: Now I bet your hair looks short of gray-silver-purpleish right? Well unless that’s the look you where going for you’ll want to add your conditioning mixture to your hair. Again, make sure to fully saturate you hair with conditioner. Leave on for 2-3 mins and rinse with cool water.

STEP 5: Style hair as usual. I would suggest air drying though, since your hair is damaged from the bleaching process.

Ta-da! Now you have lovely lavender locks, mesmerizing mermaid hair, a tantalizing tress. Okay Okay you get the picture!

Fall is in the air, I can feel it! And by feel it I mean I can feel that it isn’t 116 degrees outside. It’s more like 100. It’s even going to get below 100 this week and by my definition…that means it’s fall.

I’m so excited to start getting all my comfy knits and fall pieces out of hiding soon. Of course I’ll need to add to my collection. Oops I may have already started…with my new cross-over bag. The tan vegan leather is perfect color for fall and I think the pony hair accent really gives it some warmth. Not to mention the gunmetal findings that gives the bag that edge I always need.

What items are on you fall must have list?

Oh I guess I should also mention something about my hair huh?! The purple has been fading out, so I decided to mix up a new greenish-teal color concoction. I’ll give that a go for a while. Love? I think I was a mermaid in a past life. I can’t get enough of these pastel hair hues.

Hey my party people. The weekend is over and it’s time to having an amazing week. A productive week! Must. be. productive.

Part of that productivity I speak of, is some what of a redesign on One of Each. Don’t be surprised, if you start to notice, within the next few weeks the blog looking slightly different. You know me, always switching things up. I actually don’t think it will be too dramatic. Just a little sprucing up. It’s been over a year now, which I can not believe, so I think its time for an update.
Oh an maybe a Pinterest board to get inspired!

So I almost died this week. For three reasons.

One, being that Jeffrey Campbell wrote up this freaking amazing feature of me on their blog. ME. THEM. SHOCKED. You can check it out HERE!!!!! :D

Two, I decided to take a jog. In Arizona. At noon. When there is no shade. Like an idiot. I had woke up really early so for some reason I thought it was later in the day. Wrong-o! I basically almost died of heat stroke. I think I am being a little overly dramatic, but while I was walking home at a snails pace I honestly keep thinking that I was going to have to flag some random car over to drive me back home. Even when I was like 1 block from my house. Heck even when I could see my house! And to think, when I starting my run I even said to myself… “Pfffttt, I’m awesome! I’m not even sweating!! It’s been 12 minutes and I have so much stamina still. BOO YEAH!” Then I turned around to head home. Well yeah you amazing awesome runner, that same 12 minute run, took you 40 minutes to walk home. I even stood in someones front yard for a second because they had their sprinklers going. I was surviving out there!!!

Three, over this amazing western top from Lulus.com. I love the detail on the collar and how the hue complements my new hair color. What do you guys think? Totally dying right?

I love my new hair! What do you guys think? It seems to turn so many hues of lavender and lilac in different lighting. Last night it even looked blonde with no color at all. I really wanted it to pop in this photo though, thats why I decided to just wear this simple ivory dress.

In other news, I’m going to NYC again at the end of the month for one of my bestie’s bachelorette party. Definitely going to bring the camera to document the crazy that will be taking place. That’s what friend are for right? To snap pics of you wasted on your big night. Or even better right when you wake up hungover the next morning! Oh are you sleeping Annie? Is that drool on your face? SNAP!!!! Muahahaaaa <3 No I would never, well maybe. Ok so I wouldn’t post those pictures on the blog at least, I’m not a terrible person.

This is the last you’ll see of me as blonde. I’m coloring my hair today. A lavender-lilac-pale-purple shade. The color I had on my hair a few posts ago was actually just purple shampoo. You know the stuff that just takes the yellow out. Well I just left that on my hair in the shower for about 15 mins. This time though I want a tad bit more of a pinkish shade, and a pit more permanent. The shampoo washed out after about 1 wash and just looked grey and dingy.

Anyways check out my Pinterest hair board to see what is inspiring me!

How was everybody’s weekend? I got a little cray cray and decided to leave purple shampoo on the bottom of my hair. Ta da! Lavender ombre! I have to bleach my roots soon anyways, so I thought it would be fun for a week or so. What do you think??
