Big 60s Hair - Megan Draper from Mad MenI’ve been on cloud 9 since I got engaged. I’m excited, and also a little scared, at the thought of wedding planning. So far, we’re thinking the wedding will be sometime in the Spring of 2017, which gives me over a year to plan. I’d like to think I’m going to diet and work out in beast mode, but we’ll see. I’ve been daydreaming about what I’m going to wear, what I want my colors are going to be, what quirky venues I’d like to check out, etc, etc. You can check out my Wedding board on Pinterest here. I have a whirlwind of ideas running through my head, but when it comes to how I want to look on my wedding day, 60s style seems to be a recurring theme. I am so inspired by the 60s… thick eyeliner, dramatic lashes, flowy dresses, gem tones, and best of all, the BIG 60s hair. YUM.

Have you guys watched Season 7 of Mad Men? When I first started getting into Mad Men, I really liked that 50s Betty Draper look with the structured hair and sweet little pinup dresses… but I was in LOVE at the women’s style in the final season, when the show was set in the 60s. The hair and makeup was amazing.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I need big 60s hair for my wedding day.

channel your inner mindy -Motivation and inspiration from Mindy Lahiri, The mindy projectHappy Monday! I’ve been waiting patiently for new episodes of The Mindy Project. Do you guys watch The Mindy Project? If not, I highly suggest you start this addiction on Hulu ASAP. Mindy Lahiri, played by Mindy Kaling, is one of my favorite television characters of all time. I love that she’s great at her job, has kickass style and a color bomb of a wardrobe, and eats drumstick ice cream cones while waiting for the elevator.

I want every single piece of clothing she’s ever worn on the show.

I want to live in her apartment (her own apartment, not the man pad she shares with Danny).

And I want to work in her beautiful fertility clinic office.

But what I love most about TV career girl Mindy Lahiri, is her glittery sense of humor. Every now and then, when I’m not feeling so great at work… whether it’s just being in a blah mood OR when I sense a fit of fiery rage coming on (yes, happens more often than I’d like to admit), I know it’s time to channel my inner Mindy.the mindy project - mindy lahirimindy project quote - I'm a tiny, dainty woman and these donuts are my lunch

Meaning… put on an awesome outfit, spruce up my workspace, take a moment to recognize my fabulousness, eat a donut and laugh off whatever it is that’s keeping me from doing what I need to do. It’s just so much more productive being positive. And confident.the the mindy project - mindy lahiriJust a little thought to get you through your Monday. So remember, before you go ballistic over that eighteenth round of headlines that’s just not right from your copywriter, or flip your desk over that complete change in direction from the client minutes before a gigantic print run, or get ready to throw your coffee at that newbie production artist who didn’t fix half the changes you marked up… channel your inner Mindy. #mindymotivation
