On My Mind: July 2012 & Art With Style


This July 2012 On My Mind post is based on the questions from the InStyle Australia issue with Katy Perry.
Mentioned in this On My Mind post:
 Oh to Be a Muse Pinterest page & Natural Hair Care
♥What do you do before bed?
♥What would make me call you crazy?
♥How do you keep your hair healthy?
 ♥What do you believe in?
Also, this past Saturday I went to the Art with Style event hosted by Lotus Premium Denim. It was an art and denim charity event that featured body painted portraits and clothing donations were given to Career Closet. I actually parted ways with one of my Jean Paul Gaultier tops for this...now that's a charitable donation! 

~ H&M blazer ~ BB Dakota garland dress ~ Kenneth Cole wristlet ~ Vera Wang wedges ~At the event I got a chance to finally meet Dale of Savvy Spice. She is a fashion blogger in San Fran and a stylist, who actually did some body paint modeling for Lotus Premium Denim.

It's always great getting to meet bloggers you follow online. Dale was no exception. She was really easy to talk to and her whole family was a pleasure. Plus, she was wearing the Zara sandals I'm currently coveting!~~~
By the way, the winner of the Crazy&Co Promise bracelet giveaway is... Sonshu of The Sonshu!

    <3 Coming back to your post...absolutely love the dress you are wearing. And the event is for a good cause, what makes it better?

    Love her shoes! I spotted the same ones and am in love with them.


    THANK YOUUUU once again!

  2. What a fantastic event, that's very cool of you to do :)) You look great!! To answer your questions: Before bed I wash my face & brush my teeth. Not sure what would make you call me crazy, loads really. I despise cats, I only have one pair of jeans, I too don't wear lipstick much as I think it makes my lips look weird, I do wear lip gloss, but not the matte lipstick, I end up looking like I've been hit in the mouth. To keep my hair healthy, I moisturize well and try to use as little in products as possible, just the essential ones. And masks for my hair are always needed, the sun turns my hair into a crazy mess. And I believe in love, the kind that will tell the truth always and not put people on pedestals but just accept others as they are.

    Hope you have a great day :) xx

  3. congrats for the winner! i really love your blazer and dress, you look super stunning! those popsicles seem yummy ;D xx

  4. Cheryl,

    I am loving the on my mind post!! I think you look great in lipstick one of the very reason why I tried it was bc of you.

    Dale and you look great. I am always loving your outfits!!

  5. You don't like chocolates? I don't think we can be friends any more [I kid!] ... I don't eat fries and mayo at all, though. Proactive didn't do much for me though.

    Love your dress. You look great and Dale does too.

  6. How cool that You were featured in a magazine! Congrats! I love your answers too.

  7. You look amazing in bright colours. Sounds like a great event.

  8. i'm learning so much about you Cheryl! i enjoyed reading your likes and dislikes. i wish more people were straight up and straight forward. it would make things a lot easier. i read Dale's blog and she is such a doll. glad you guys met in person. you two look so beautiful and what a lovely event.

  9. I love your color mix in your outfit...and I adore reading what's "on your mind" too! =)

  10. it made me laugh about the spots :p i'm sure it doesn't scare them too much :p i'm i dont really like lipstick on me, i feel really made up :(

  11. Awesome post, darling!
    I need to start using Proactiv again!


  12. Ha -- Keeping it classy. LOVE IT. You and I are so the same person. I hate lipstick, too. It's just ... awkward. No, thanks.

  13. Cheryl, I love your "what's on your mind' part and I can relate to the chocolate thing, I love sour candy but not really chocolate. The pic with you and the cakepop is so cute, it goes with your outfit. It was so fun meeting you too and thanks for including me in this post, we'll definitely have to meet up more often since we're so close. I'll have to find out the info for the Macy's passport fashion show this fall, it's so fun. You have to go! :) ~xoDale P.S. Thanks for the spot treatment tip with the Proactive mask. I forgot about Proactive, but that would be worth trying if it works :)

  14. Saw that pic on Dale's blog...you two are too fab:) And yes yes yes on the fries with mayo. If it wasn't so fattening, I'd be eating that everyday! As for bedtime routine, I use Proactiv too, but the Repairing Lotion one.

    Congrats to Sonshu as well!

  15. And the best fries with mayo... was it in Belgium or Holland?

    I still dont know how you don't like chocolate. But you def keep it real.

  16. Oh! I like that "On my mind"!
    I like fries with ketchup and mayo mixed together!

  17. A simple regimen is always good especially in the summer! I love that dress with the blue blazer! I don't think I've ever had mayo with fries... hhmmm.

  18. What a great event, sounds like you had a great time. I follow Savvy Spice too...thats so cool that you got to meet each other!

    LOL about lipstick, Im the same way. I just don't like how it looks on me, no matter what color it is. Actually the only makeup I wear is eye liner! So call me crazy!

    Hmm..Every night before bed I watch TV or read a book...its a must!

    I probably don't keep my hair healthy. I put moose in it and then blow dry it, but not every day. If I don't blow dry it I just pull it up in a bun.

    I like that you are straight forward, there is no reason to pretend about anything or anyone you don't like. Why sit there and deal with it if you don't have to.

    I believe in being honest with your spouse. If you can't be honest with them then it feels like you aren't being honest with yourself. You are sharing your life with this person, so would you keep something from them. Secrets always end up ugly in the end when you aren't being honest.

    Great post! xoxo

  19. Ooh, great tip with the Proactiv - I've been looking for a product like that for a while, will have to give it a go!

  20. Hey. Thanks for visiting. I love your blog!
    You want to follow each other ?
    Let me know

  21. Hmmm...probably my nail polish collection would make you call me crazy. I have tons of colors that look nearly-identical, and I feel like I'm the only one who can see the slight differences between them. :P

  22. I also don't like chocolate - unless its dark lindor ;) I think its a good thing that you are upfront and straightforward, I wish I could be more like that, it really helps clear things up and not let in linger on. The shea moisturizer sounds really lovely for hair, haven't seen that here. Lurv your combination of blue and coral, so pretty!

  23. Hmm not a chocolate lover - I'm intrigued! How cool that you met Dale as well - I love meeting bloggers IRL!

  24. congrats to the winner! so envious. :)

    i absolute love your hair!!

    these are great pics, and i love learning more about you.

    have a great rest of the week, c.

  25. no chocolate, you love nightmare b4 xmas, and u put mayo on ur fries. WHO ARE U!!?? lol I might have to call that cray but I people who are direct as well. I never used hamadi hair mask so I have to try that out for sure. Although I don't use chemicals on my hair, I do occasionally use heat so I love hearing about great natural products to protect it. nice post chica!
    enjoy ur day!


  26. that looks like an awesome event!!


  27. I actually use that hair care line sometimes. My hair is very coarse and wiry!

  28. That's interesting lipstick weirds you out! My sister hates lipstick too. I don't hate them but I hardly wear it. You looked great at the event. Orange is a great color for you! I have no before bed routine except to take off my makeup, wash my face, and hopefully floss and brush my teeth. Moisturizer too.

  29. TO echo Lisa above. I rarely wear lipstick just because I feel like there is so much room for error. Like it getting on my teeth or smudging on my face :( sad.

  30. wow, looks like the place I want to be at.
    You look great, excellent colors choice <3.
    sooo nice.

  34. I can't believe you don't like most chocolates... !!

  35. Ha! I too think that being blunt is better in the long run. I hate political type people who say what you want to hear. Stupid and annoying...

    Also, I too hate most chocolates! How funny! :))

    Loved your post, dearie! :))
