Best wishes to good friends!

As you may know, my fiance and I made a very long trip to South Carolina this weekend. After 13 hours on the road we finally made it to see our friends Megan and Joey celebrate their marriage to each other. It was a small, intimate wedding which perfectly complimented the bride and groom.
Megan had to be one of the most stunning brides I have ever seen. Her hair was beautifully curled in perfect soft ringlets and her makeup only made her even more gorgeous. Her lace dress fit her like a glove. I think you could almost hear everyone gasp as to her beauty when she first appeared. Watching them share their first dance together was so heart warming. It was like they zoned everyone out around them and were so focused on each other. Truly a beautiful moment.
Here is my fiance and I with the happy couple! We wish them all the happiness in the world. Cheers to a wonderful marriage!!

Okay, so if you haven’t gotten hooked on ABC’s “Modern Family” yet, you don’t know what you are missing. It’s certainly a show that my fiance and I cannot wait to sit down and watch each week. Our favorite character on the show without a doubt is sexy, feisty Gloria played by the very attractive and talented Sofia Vergara. Full Story »
For all you still in school

I remember those days. Black shirt and pants every day. I am so glad I can wear color again. Some people never get to leave the black behind as they go off to work at a salon with the same dress code. That must suck!
What a beautiful sight!

One of my favorite nights of the year is here. It’s the time of the year where the holiday season really starts. The lighting of the tree in Rockefeller Center. Can you believe I have lived in NY my whole life and I have never made it out to see this live? One of these years I will do that. But for now I will enjoy watching it on tv in my pj’s with a cup of hot chocolate in hand. There is something about seeing that tree light up for the first time that bring butterflies to my tummy and a smile to my face. It’s the makeover of the year for me. Between the celebrities singing all of my favorite holiday songs, to the Rockette’s kicking those amazing legs in the air…sigh. Hope you all are enjoying your evening watching this from wherever you are.
An all natural look
Keyword: Barbie, afro
A group in Georgia plans to give out Barbie dolls this Christmas, but it’s not about the gift. Their plan is to help young girls to feel more self-acceptance and self esteem. Candace McBride is a member of the African-American natural-hair group and will be coordinating the giveaway. She claims that it is hard to find dolls that are natural looking (it’s so very true, and so very sad). Online she found out how to take a Barbie doll and give her natural looking curls by using boiling water and pipe cleaners. ”We wanted to show the girls that basically, it’s OK the way God made you,” said member Jennifer Henderson. The message they are trying to give to young African-American girls, is to embrace their hair the way it is. Their goal is to make 40 dolls and while that doesn’t sound like a lot, think of the impact it will have on those 40 lucky little girls on Christmas morning.
Maybe they can only giveaway 39 and send the last one this way so I can add it to my Barbie collection?
We think what this group is doing is wonderful. I embrace all hair types…long, short, thick, thin, orange, black, curly, straight. Everyone’s hair is beautiful in it’s own way!
I hope you enjoyed this Barbie filled day! If you have any other cool Barbie style ideas, please don’t hesitate to send them our way!!
Keyword: Oscars, Emma Stone
Did you check out her winged liner?! Ugh…love it! And her beautifully, swept bun pulled off her look. Emma Stone is a winner in my book!
I am obsessed with Rooney Mara’s lips. They are the perfect shade of matte red. I love the simplicity of the eye make-up. It really draws you to her blue/green eyes.
Berenice Bejo was rockin’ a braid and she is now my best friend! Haha Seriously though, loved this style. Braids are so intricate, and then the back is just so simple. It compliments itself nicely.
Hey, Gwyneth Paltrow…is that a bob, or a pony tail? She pulled an optical illusion here. From the front it looks as if she’s got a sexy, sleek bob. From the back, it’s a simple, classic pony! And, her earthy make-up really accents her natural beauty! PS- Loved her cape!

I still don’t have an ipad
Keyword: makeup forever, make up app, itunes app
Check this out! MakeUp ForEver has an app for the iPad where you can upload a photo of yourself and try out all different kind of makeup looks and colors! This is genius. There have been apps like this for hair for a while, but I never realized there were apps for makeup too.
How easy would this be when working a bridal trial? As you’re doing the trial you can use the same colors and looks on the ipad then take a screen shot and never forget what you did. Then when you arrive on the day of the wedding you are good to go! You won’t have to worry about not remembering the color combination you did!
Not to mention the fact that it would just be so fun to make yourself up all day without the risk of pimples from to much makeup play haha!
