Wedding Glam Squad

Wedding Glam Squad

When it came to choosing my beauty team for my wedding there were multiple things I considered.  1) I didn't want it to be any of my friends.  Even though I am a huge advocate for supporting all of my friend's businesses, I know that wedding day beauty between being a bride and having a full crew of girls to get ready can be a lot of emotions and a lot of estrogen flying around.  So, if emotions became involved during any of the get-ready process, I didn't want to hinder a friendship.  2) I wanted something that photographed very well and matched the light and airy pink princess look I was going for, without sacrificing the little drama details that can truly take a girl from pretty to stunning. 3) I decided to ask my favorite photographer who also happened to me my wedding photographer - Cat Neumayr of Luke and Cat Photography.  Cat is very particular about her makeup and she always looks like a porcelain doll in her pictures, plus I know she was sure to recommend me to what she truly thought would be the best fit for me.  So let me formally introduce my beauty glam squad to you - Hey Lovely Makeup from Houston, Texas.  And...Read More

Let’s Talk Lashes

Hey y'all! I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend thus far. I am getting caught up on some work on a Sunday which is unusual for me because I normally try to have Sunday off. But, I'll be at the first ever Boutique Summit the next two days at Dallas Market, so I've got to get ahead for the week since I'll be out of the office. I am excited to be the opening speaker on Monday morning and also sitting in on the social media panel on Tuesday. If you're planning on attending, I look forward to meeting you! Let's talk eyelashes on this blog post. For the past few years I have worn eyelash extensions and I loved them. I felt like during the week I could get away with a little bit of powder, touching up my eyebrows and throwing on some gloss. The eyelashes made me feel more complete and put together without any extra effort getting ready during the morning. I wore the Novalash brand, but after the wedding I decided to give my natural lashes a break. They needed to breathe and have some R&R time! But I sure did feel like I had lost a lot of color around my eyes going without them....Read More
Brave Enough to Be Makeup Free!

Brave Enough to Be Makeup Free!

Hey Pretties! I am sooooo excited to be able to share this blog with you because getting my skin in the shape that it is has been quite the journey for me! So skin care is something that I started taking seriously a few years ago (basically whenever I really started focusing on my entire lifestyle change) and I am so pleased with where my skin is today. I want to share with y'all the things that have worked for me! I started using Obagi Skin Care almost 3 years ago. I was recommended this skin care line by Dr. Angeletta Brown and her nurse Kiki here in College Station and I still purchase the products from them to date. They set me my own special 5 step regime that they thought would work perfect for my skin. The first almost 13 weeks was a bit of a purge period for me, but ever since, my skin has never been better. I still regularly go to Dr. Brown's where both her and Kiki will tweak my morning and/or night skin care routine. They knew that my skin looking absolutely beautiful and radiant on my wedding day was a big priority to me, and they helped me to make it happen. And now...Read More
