{BEAUTY TUESDAY} HOT PINK NAILS AT BUFF NAIL BAR

Last Friday I took a minute out of my crazy schedule to visit my folks at BUFF Nail Bar (located inside W A X Atlanta). It had been so long since my last manicure that I was a little ashamed to even book an appointment. We're talking jagged cuticles and nubs here. Just gross.

But the ever so kind and understanding Priscilla P. let me off the hook with my truant behavior. After catching up a bit, she got right down to business and once again saved my sad little nails.
I absolutely love the color we went with this time around (Hot Pop Pink by CND Vinylux).

I also spotted quite a few more colors/polish lines that I'm ready to try come spring.










These minty RGB colors? To die for!







One of the things I always suggest to ladies looking to make a style change for little money is to experiment with your nails. A pop of color on your fingers can drastically change your ensemble. Don't be afraid to try a new shade...preferably something that takes you out of your comfort zone. The best thing about nail color--it's only temporary! If you don't like it, you won't have buyers remorse when you swipe it off with remover! 

If you're looking for a fantastic nail studio in Atlanta, BUFF is an amazing space.
Clean, modern and chic! 






Priscilla P., one of the fab BUFF Girls!








Next time you're hanging out in Old Fourth Ward, stop in to check out the space or give them a call at 404.525.8344 to book a beauty service with the BUFF Girls (Priscilla, Hasani and Sam). There's even lots of cool beauty and lifestyle products for retail! Be sure to tell them Erin B. from Brains of the Outfit sent you!

GOING TRIBAL: MILLECOLLINES X ANTHROPOLOGIE

Bold tribal/global looks will always be in style in my book. I recently discovered MilleCollines, a Rwandan line of clothing and accessories that mix the traditions of African-inspired patterns in modern silhouettes. Anthropologie is now carrying a few exclusive pieces from the line that I am itching to get my hands on for spring. Take a look:

After much deliberation, texts with photog friends, Best Buy stalking and lots of penny pinching, I finally purchased a Canon Rebel SL1. And can I just say....I am having a BALL! Why, oh why did it take me so long to hop on the Canon DSLR bandwagon?! Anyhow...

To commemorate my new purchase, I put this video together, as a way to close out my winter wardrobe. Here is one dress, my favorite Topshop dress, styled three ways. Spring is on its way in and I for one couldn't be happier. So let's take a last glance at some of the best trends from the season and bid au revoir to leather, booties, fedoras, and midis until next year!
