So this is a newish hair style that resurfaced at Fashion Week this year, and I plan to exploit it all over again for my Homecoming ladies. A wonderful cosmetology instructor I met once walked me through this hair do. The great news: it’s easy on both the hair stylist and the client’s hair. It’s a quick coiffure, so it makes getting ready for a big night out a breeze.

Earlier this week I got a call from panic-stricken makeup artist who was unable to work her dear friend’s wedding because she was ill. The wedding was only a few days away. So I made the call to the bride, Gay Lynn, and she booked everything right over the phone. The trial run, the wedding, even a trim and highlight, all without meeting face to face.

Well, I’m so glad I was able to help. Gay Lynn was so sweet and had such hilarious stories. She entertained me all the way through her last-minute trial run. Her bridesmaids were a blast, hooting and hollering the entire wedding day. In spite of having to scramble at the eleventh hour of her wedding planning, Gay Lynn was considerate, good-natured, and a pleasure to work with.

I’m so excited about these new fall colors from Chanel. Khaki Rose, Brun, and Vert so gorgeous and are going to make my brides and bridesmaids sparkle. Muted and understated. :) I’m pretty much in love with all things Chanel. I guess I am a slave to marketing…

Last week I had the pleasure of attending – and working – my dear friend, Jessica’s wedding to upstanding beau, Ramzey. They had a small, quiet ceremony and party with close family and friends. Jess didn’t really plan much; some flowers, some yummy food from Curra’s, who also did my Rehearsal Dinner, and gorgeous music provided simply by her mother and guitar. My favorite part was The Dress. Gorgeous, flattering, and classic. The bubbles were fun too. I’m not always a fan of using them for an exit, but Jess set out bubbles for everyone to blow as the party went on, which felt sweet and lighthearted. Check out her hotness below.

I usually leave this section of my site for fun things I’ve seen in OTHER weddings…cute hair, shoes, etc. But I had to post this link to pics of my wedding. My husband sports a mustache most of the time – somewhat serious, somewhat ironic. He asked his groomsmen to grow mustaches for our wedding on May 1st at Star Hill Ranch in Austin, TX. Those that couldn’t grow them wore adhesive mustaches. I thought adhesive mustaches would make a fun (and cheap) favor for the guests. Everyone loved them, and they were the perfect icebreaker for our joining families. Thanks to WhitneyLee Photography for all their hard work. It wasn’t easy to wrangle our bunch, but they did it beautifully.
