Why Do People Steal?

Okay, mini rant. The other morning I was working at my store. One of the dudes who works at one of the other four stores came over to let me know that two girls had stole from their store. It happens.

My favorite past beach reads are as follows:

What's In Store...

Did you miss me? There's been a serious lack of posts this past week. I'm not going to go into specifics, but I've been struggling with some health issues the past two weeks and have been too tired to blog. It's time to get back into the swing of things because boy have I missed you guys!

Starting tomorrow I'm going back to my normal posting routine. I might even have a special giveaway to make up for it hint hint wink wink nudge nudge. Get excited. I have so many posts I've been working on, you might just get sick of me. But just for a preview, expect to see a tutorial on my quick go-to eye look, plus a post all about my curls. Woohoo! If there are any other posts you'd like to see, now is a good time to tell me!

It's good to be back in blogland.

Defining Curls | Guest Post

I'm having a rough week (and it's only Monday!) but I don't want to leave you all hanging! Today I'm sharing a guest post by the lovely Julia of Pennies & Paper. She's a gem and is sharing her curly hair secrets today, so pay attention ladies! 
Hi everyone! I'm Julia and I blog over at Pennies & Paper. When I was considering what to talk about on Kimberly's Chronicle, I realized that Kim and I both had curly hair! 

The curly hair journey is different for everyone. Some lucky few love their crazy curls from the start, while others (like myself) had to grow into them. It took a lot of experimenting and changing to get to the curl-loving point I am at now. When I was younger, I shampooed every day, I used a blow dryer on my hair, and I brushed it. All huge curly hair no-nos. But even after correcting those errors my hair was a frizz ball. Two things that have had a huge impact on my curls are choosing to keep it short and using better hair products--I will focus on the latter of the two here.

Hiking & Warm Weather

I can't believe it's already Friday. This week (like usual) has flown by! I felt like just doing an update and talking to you all today. I haven't been doing much lately because I'm always in the store, but Tuesday I had a pretty fun day, so I thought I'd share it with you! Unfortunately I lost my camera and my phone was being temperamental, so I couldn't get too many pictures. Here's what I did get though:

Sick/Lazy Outfit + Makeup

Since I've been pretty sick this week, I thought I'd make the most of it by showing you ladies what I do for my hair, makeup, and outfit on days that I'm sick but still need to look presentable. If you have the luxury of laying in bed all day, slap on some moisturizer and call it good. BUT, if you have to go out and don't want anyone thinking the Grudge is real, here's what I do when I'm sick or just feeling lazy.

Sunshine, Party, and Mystery

Summer is here folks. I've been going non-stop, and reminiscing about those days during winter break where I could just lay in bed and watch Netflix without feeling guilty. Don't get me wrong though, summer is a blast and I'll take a warm sunny day on the beach over a cold winter day anytime.
