Ahhhh! I can’t believe my pop-up sale is finally live! I was beginning to think I wouldn’t be able to pull it off but that just goes to show I can still surprise myself. You all have been very patient and supportive of me (as per usual) and I thank you kindly! There has been a serious lack of sleep around here while I was prepping for this sale so I’m gonna go take a nap now while you go shop! Now let me show you a little bit of what you can expect to find in my limited pop-up sale, I’ve tried

Most of you know by now that baby Ivory was born prematurely almost two weeks ago. It’s been an emotional roller coaster since I went into labor but I plan to share the full birth story after she gets home from the hospital (hopefully soon!). If any of you have had a baby in the NICU, you know how many people are involved in giving care to those tiny humans. I have been so touched and even comforted by several of Ivory’s nurses during her stay in the NICU. I’ve been nothing but grateful and encouraged

With baby #4 pending in just a few weeks it’s hard not to panic over all the things I still need to do before she is born. I want to spend every waking second holding this little button when she is born so I made myself a list of things I want/need to do before her big arrival when I first got pregnant so I can have all the free time in the world when she gets here. I’ll be honest and say that I’ve probably only checked off about 20% of my list so far but at least I got to the fun and important things

Since so many of you have asked and requested details on my hair color I finally made some time to get around to a retouch and simultaneously made a tutorial for you as well. In the video I demonstrate the coloring process I do to achieve and maintain my hair color. I consider my hair color to be platinum blonde (mostly white with ash undertones). I definitely prefer to go to a salon for my color but I will occasionally color my own hair if I need it done in a pinch. I have over 10 years of

For the last year I have gone back and forth on whether or not to post about my Birthday last year. For my 26th birthday I celebrated my birthday by doing 26 Random Acts of Kindess (RAOK). Instead of getting presents or having a party I got to give various and random gifts of kindness to unsuspecting people. I didn’t end up doing RAOK for my 27th birthday and it just wasn’t the same. I knew for my 28th birthday I wanted to do RAOK’s again and so the Boss and I planned out and plotted

Last summer I attempted to make a jewelry board to store all my accessories in one central location. I’m not the most handy/industrial lady but I smacked a few nails and doused the thing in glue and it held up pretty well. It wasn’t the prettiest or most practical jewelry holder but it was definitely functional.
I knew I would want to attempt to make a newer, more improved, refined jewelry board but it ended up taking me me a year to find the motivation. I was asked to post a tutorial

I had the chance to style one of my all time favorite models and people in the whole world (Sierra) for one of Jessica Downey’s Project 10 shoots. This month’s theme was “water” and somehow I lucked out and was invited to do hair and makeup before the shoot. Sierra is the type of model that makes my job look so easy. She is the perfect canvas and can pretty much pull off anything. For her makeup I did a simple gradient with neutral tones on her eyes with a little bit of peach highlighting on the

A little while ago I posted my powder room on Instagram in hopes of getting some design ideas from you guys to help this very plain, very white room. This room is connected to my office and is used primarily for working with my styling clients and hair and makeup consultations. I really want the space to feel more inviting and professional and less like a sterile operating room.
Kristin from Restyle Source has answered my plea for help and has teamed up with me to redesign the space to fit

I’ve been dying to share some of my latest projects I made using my Silhouette Cameo and Silhouette Studio Designer Edition. I pulled it out back in May/June to make some stuff for girls camp and I honestly haven’t been able to put it away. The Silhouette Cameo is capable of so much and now that I am using the Studio Designer Edition I can pretty much customize my own projects from start to finish. One of the projects I made for camp was shirts for all the girls in our group. I found some darling
