You might recognize the two photos above from Instagram that I posted yesterday, which were taken right after I first styled my hair with these products by TRESemme’s new hair care line, Perfectly (un)Done. I was really happy with the outcome and spent the rest of the day enjoying my tousled beachy waves. (For a bit of extra bounce, I touched up the ends with a clipless curling wand.)
Then later on in the day, I headed out with Casey for a bit and changed into this cozy sweater (puffy jacket not shown) and whipped up my waves up into a loose, undone top knot. Just by doing that and adding a red lip, I felt like the outcome was a completely different style and look, don’t you think? I also love how the bun looks sort of tousled in it’s own way, even though it’s pinned up.

Good morning, everyone! Can you believe it’s the first Monday of the new year? I’m excited for what’s to come in 2015 but so very thankful for what 2014 brought me, which included my sweet boyfriend, Casey. He’s quite a gem and I feel so lucky to have him in my life. I posted about him being a saint here, because when we took these photos, it was FREEZING outside. Poor guy didn’t have gloves on and let me tell you, the wind coming off the water was brutal. I can handle cold weather, but when you involve crazy wind, no thank you. He patiently shot and reshot until I got what I wanted photo-wise, and kept a smile on his face for most of it. My Dad is the same way – patient and supportive. Thank goodness for these two amazing men in my life.
Can you tell by the look on my face that I’m freezing? Haha, I was trying so hard to keep it together! Oh, what I will do for a good photograph!
As you can see, I am desperately trying to hold my hair down and keep it from blowing straight up or across my face. I’m sure I looked insane to any bystanders, especially when I took off my jacket, but I really wanted to show you guys my sweater! :)

I am very lucky and blessed in so many ways and feel thankful for all that I have. Thank you to you all, my friends and loved ones, and to 2014. You were a good year.
Here’s to a fantastic Monday! xo

This past Saturday morning I was up by 7:30AM. I’m not a morning person by nature, but I have to say I really enjoyed the quiet time to myself, where nothing was required of me besides sitting on the couch, sipping coffee and watching Friends reruns. I eventually met a friend for breakfast at 10:30 then ran some errands in Soho. Afterward, Casey and I went for a bike ride along the Hudson River down to Battery Park where we sat in the grass, enjoyed the warm weather and played with the new Hyperlapse app. Have you tried it? It’s super fun. Later that evening we went and saw The Skeleton Twins at the Angelika, then went grocery shopping for the upcoming week. What a wild Saturday night, right? As much as I love to be social and go out with friends, I also love spending a quiet night in, organizing/tidying up the apartment, prepping food for the week and getting a good night’s sleep.
My backpack is available here.
It’s perfect for bike riding!
Sunday was spent sipping coffee, riding bikes again, and cooking dinner at home. All is all, the weekend was fairly low key but felt nice and productive. What did you guys do? xo
Lincoln Center, in all it’s glory.
Happy Wednesday, everyone! For some reason this week feels like it’s passing by fairly slowly. But not necessarily in a bad way. Just each day seems so full, from early mornings to late nights, yet I don’t feel overwhelmed by it, just aware that it’s still only Wednesday. Does that make sense?
That said, I am happy it’s Wednesday, because tonight is my Marimekko event, which I will be hosting from 5-8 at their 5th avenue flagship store on the corner of 23rd street. Please feel free to swing by and say hi! Just say my name, Christine Cameron / My Style Pill, at the door. It will be a blast.
I am also looking forward to Thursday, because it’s a very special day for me (more to come on that tomorrow) and then of course Friday is always great because it means the weekend is just a hop, skip and jump away. However, while we wait for our beloved Saturday and Sunday to roll around, here are my photos from this past weekend. I know they are a little late. But better late than never, right?!

The other part of my weekend consisted of a long walk along the East River with two of my close friends and a 9-month-old puppy my friend is temporarily fostering. Above is a picture of her. She is named Freyja (pronounced Fray-yah) and is the sweetest thing. She loves other dogs and really just needs a stable, loving environment and permanent home. She is up for adoption, so if you are interested, email me at email@example.com or leave a comment below and I can help you get in touch with the rescue organization that found her. To learn more about this little pup, view her page HERE. xo
