New York Fashion Week and Diana Ross in Concert

Corinne Bailey Rae Hair Inspiration

*edit: We have a new home!  www.socialitedreams.com

The lush, full, bouncy, beautiful curls of Corinne Bailey Rae are calling my name!  Her mane is  thick, lovely, and a perfect example of big hair, don’t care gorgeousness 🙂

As many of you know, because I incessantly talk about it here and on twitter, I will be going to New York to see the true diva Miss Diana Ross in concert next month.  Can’t go see her in action without looking perfectly coiffed! This will be the perfect reason to do something that I’ve never done and get a full head sew-in so that I can have some big bouncy hair as well 🙂  In my opinion, Corinne’s hair is something of a modern, more defined version of Diana Ross’ signature big hair.

I’ve had sew-in hairstyles before, just never a FULL HEAD sew-in.  Generally some hair was left out when I was relaxed, which made it blend in with the added weave/extensions.  What I am wondering now is how will a full head sew in look, since I don’t plan on having my hair out?  Any of you ever had a full sew in?  What did you think of it? I’m also curious on what hair to buy to achieve that fluffy soft style, any suggestions?   And if you are in Chicago and know of anyone who’s awesome at doing the style, PLEASE let me know 🙂

Goal Oriented

Now that I have a fabulous trip to NYC planned and tickets to the see the glorious Diana Ross (that’s MISS ROSS to you) the hunt is on for the perfect dress.  As I was browsing through site upon site of glam, sparkly, chic dresses cool enough to be worn in Miss Ross’ presence, I thought about the fact that I’d look even better with major weight gone so that I can fit the more sexy numbers.  I’m already on a weight-loss mission that I’ve talked about here, here, and here, with 15 lbs gone since June 7th and practically no exercise.  Imagine what I could do if I weren’t being such a lazy bum?  So now the race is on, no excuses about not wanting to work out, so that I can possibly lose 30 lbs by the trip in September.  I’ve found the dress that will be my inspiration, the super cute little number that I’d love to get my body into shape for:

Now of course I know that I won’t be HER size, nor do I want to be, but I feel that I could probably knock down some major inches in two months if I put my mind to it.   Maybe get to a size 8 (I’m a 12/14 now).  Do you find that you have to have concrete goals in mind to get anything accomplished or are you disciplined  enough to say that you are going to go for something and then get it done?  What’s your crutch when it comes to losing weight?
