The Only Summer Accessory You Need: Headbands!

The first time I wore a headband, I was in 1st grade. Mi madre dropped some knowledge on me, she said “Headbands keep your hair in place, and make your hair look damn good!” Okay, maybe she didn’t say “Damn”. But she did introduce me to headbands, ever since then I’ve been obsessed with this accessory. Imagine my excitement when the entire bohemian-chic look got reinstated a little while ago .. all my headbands were finally going to be put to good use!

Thats me! I’m Raji, one half of the amazing PrettyPlease duo, and yes, I’m addicted to headbands. I’m especially feeling the style right now, floral headbands, worn sideways, that work with messy and styled hair. I absolutely DIE for this Ivy leaf headband from Eddera (best worn by Kourtney Kardashian below):

Facebook, It’s Not You, It’s Me: Why Facebook Fails to Tickle Our Pickle

facebook facebook ipo facebook is boring facebook sucks facebook is cool pretty please blog pretty please us blog what is facebook who uses facebook how to use facebook sarcastic facebook blog sarcasm blog

Facebook, you’re hot. Really you are..

It’s just that .. well .. I don’t feel the same anymore. Once upon a time, I’d excitedly check my computer to see who added me as a friend, who wrote on my wall, or what event was going on.. even when I got my iPhone, I was razzed up – pop up notifications? Heck yea! Three people wrote on my wall .. sickkkkk!!! But that was then .. this is now. Facebook, I adore you but I think we might have to take a break .. (read: major time apart aka I am going to slore it up on different social media websites), and I’m sorry. I know you need closure, so here’s why I’m taking a step back from you:

  • Photos With 19,347,032 Likes
You know exactly what I’m talking about Facebook. The photos where if I like a picture of a little boy, someone will feed him for an extra day, or if I like a picture of a bunny it’ll happily hop forever. These photos create guilt within me, Facebook. Yesterday, I liked a photo I didn’t even like because it said “Like if you love your mom”. Obviously I love my mom, she’s a nifty creature, but I could have lived without the guilt. I now feel compelled to like these modern day chain letters, and I don’t like it one bit. It’s to the point where I scroll as fast as I can if I see a photo with 10,000 likes in fears of waking up whatever hoax it contains. Meh.
  • “Like”s Aren’t Titillating Anymore 
Likes were really exciting. REALLY exciting when they first came out. I remember the first time I got 11 likes on a status. It was a status about going to the beach in LA. Yup, I would have liked it too because well, I like the beach, and I like LA. Nowadays, people change their profile photos like they change underwear hoping for new daily likes. Everyone’s magically turned into a freaking photographer, and showcase their mobile uploads as the next work of art. The worst is when I write on someones wall, they respond, I respond, and we go back and forth and like every single one of each others comments. No I take it back, the worst is that I expect the other person and vice versa to like everything. Facebook, you’ve made “liking” a wee bit played out.
  • Timeline Has Visually Impaired Me 
I used to be able to go on my friends page, scroll down to see comments, photo albums, newly made friends, or any new page likes in a reasonable, fashionable order. I’m really not anal-retentive either, btw. I wake up late, hit snooze about 20 times, and fist pump Continue reading

3 Simple Steps To Make You A Better Person

Help me help you. I’m huge on introspection, which can be good or bad at times. With introspection comes careful examination of one’s habits – what is and is not working? Our generation is currently in a rush to make it to the top, to launch the next new hot start-up, we’re constantly glued to our phone, and our idea of a date is Facetime. Though technologically advanced, we lack some fundamentals, which I’ve managed to sift through. One thing I want to bring back is the air of personalization .. with friends, employers, and family. Here are three things to help make you a better person:

1) COMMUNICATE IN PERSON

This is what human interaction looks like nowadays:

Boy: Hi ;)

Girl: Hiya whats up?

Boy: Nothing. Bored. Chillin. K, time for the gym, ttyl.

Girl: Okay bye!!! ;) :) (emoji) (emoji) (stupid emoji) (emoji)

Lame. And, yes, I’m judging you if you have a similar text in your phone.



texting not talking relationship advice addicted to texting stop texting as much talk to people don't text them lifestyle blog relationship blog how to be a better person pretty please blog pretty please us blog



Texting is written communication. I, being in love with writing, can respect that form of communication. However, an interaction in person is not only refreshing, but it’s personable. It’s an amazing feeling to truly listen to someones thoughts and feelings, and vice versa. When I’m on the phone, chances are I’m playing Bejeweled or checking Twitter. Texting doesn’t account for tone either, which can manage to lead to unnecessary communication. You never know who may be in need of a friend, or how good it might feel to truly vent and talk to an old friend.

2) SAY “THANK YOU”

What Was She Wearing: Bridal Shower With A Splash Of Neon



what to wear to a bridal shower Summer 2012 aldo shoes Peach McCandlish ballerina flats zara maxi skirt with slits pretty please



Yup, it’s wedding season and I had the honor of attending one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to this past weekend. Not only were the detailed planned to perfection, the amount of love in the air was amazing. Let’s just say I’m not only hung over from the weekend but emotionally spent, in a good way.

The bridal shower leading up to the wedding was also, as expected, phenomenal. Wearing a pretty floral dress for a bridal shower is usually a safe bet but I wanted to do something different (inspired by the pic below!) and guess what- I captured it all on my iPhone camera to show you guys. Let me know what you think. =)

Shoes On My Mind: Zara Asymmetric Court Pumps
