makeup + hair

Sep 30 2014

Back in June I got to play dress up with “THE” McKenna Bleu!  I know y’all know this bombshell!

I’ve been crushing her for what feels like forever now.  We became blogger, Insta and FB buddies over the years.  I can definitely say, that she’s been one of the biggest influences to get my beauty blog up and running the way it used to.  Not that it isn’t running now… but I have (and had) big plans of making it an interactive beauty blog.  Not just showcasing client work, but more how-to’s, my style, my fav’s, my interior style, etc.  The way it once was.

McKenna Bleu embodies everything that a Southern Gal should… she’s truly the MOST genuine, gorgeous (obv!!), sweet, stylish, caring, did I mention 😉 stylish ladies that I’ve ever met.  I’m so incredibly fortunate for the wonderful world of blogging brought us together.  I consider her my social media bestie!

Here’s our short time that we spent together… playing dress up in my dress up room! 🙂

I love you to pieces, McKenna Bleu and thank you for all of your encouragement over the years.


ps… you can shop her entire look here

makeup + hair

Sep 29 2014

Back in May I walked through the doors of Denim House (drool!!!) to do a fun shoot with the hottie duo, Lucy + Steven.

I did makeup + hair for Miss Luce (Steven too!) and snapped a few pics of the hotties modeling some amazing pieces from Denim House.

Y’all… two words.  Denim House.  Two more words… Smitten & Hooked.   One word… Fabulous.

I left a piece of my heart that night in Denim House and haven’t been back since.  I swore that once I lost the lingering baby weight that I would spoil myself with a shopping spree in that store.  I have 7 lbs left and I’m doing a bootcamp challenge.  I’ve been promised that by October 31st the weight will be off (giggle with me #iLikeVinoTooMuch and #CandyCornToo), and when it is — beware hubby and Denim House (chaaaaaCHING)!  Mama’s going shopping!  Lucy & Steven, I might invite y’all to take my pic this time around (insert emoji smily with one eye shut and tongue sticking out), someone’s gotta document my love for good fashion!  😉

Visit Lucy + Steven’s post for more pic’s of the fabulous store.
